Secret Santa Revelation

The petite blogging community has grown enormously over the past year and several petites participated in a Secret Santa Exchange through Elfster to make our network stronger and more personal.

Since we all “know” each other from our respective blogs, it was easier to pick out gifts for our fellow petites. My intended recipient is Canadian, so I sent her gift across the border. I won’t reveal who she is, but I’m sure you can find out through Jessy’s list of Secret Santa participants.

After weeks of answering anonymous questions and posting some wish-list items, I was eager to receive my gift.

When the Secret Santa package appeared on my doorstep, I was surprised that it didn’t have any postage on it. I knew then that it had to be a local blogger, but I wasn’t exactly sure who.

I opened the bag and found a handwritten card by my Secret Santa. The handwriting is so neat and tidy, it puts mine to shame!

The first item I pulled from the bag was the Starbucks Cocoa Trio. She must have read my mind because I just ran out of hot chocolate the week before and I was thinking of getting a new carton. So now, I have three flavors of hot cocoa to quench my thirst.

Next, I found several sample size beauty products and a necklace from the LOFT. There was a Decleor eye makeup remover gel and an Origins skin tone correcting serum. I’m sure I’ll get a lot of use from these two items!

Since I’m obsessed with statement pieces and I love purple, the necklace from LOFT is a great addition to my collection.

The remaining two beauty samples were a Clinique 7-day scrub cream and a Shiseido Perfect Mascara.

If you can see those gray foam pieces in the photo, they’re two foot petals that I requested in my wish-list. I wear heels a lot and the balls of my feet usually get sore, so these foot petals increase the cushion in the shoe so all day, I’ll stay comfortable on my feet.

Here’s the entire package that I received from my Secret Santa. I’m sure you’re all wondering who is this mysterious petite blogger that sent me such a thoughtful present.

It was Liane from PetiteXXS!
