Welcome 2012!

I know I am a little late on this, but I hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year's! I had to work through both Holiday's, so I didn't get to do the posts I wanted to. I personally am very happy to see 2011 go. It was a year of tragedy, disasters and pain for me and a lot of the people that I know. I have heard people say that they thing it is lame when someone complains about the past year and that if they want change, they have to make the change themselves. It is not always that easy. My personal misfortunes/ tragedies were due to bad luck. I was in the wrong place at the wrong time (several times throughout the year). Unfortunately, I am not able to share details with you. Needless to say, I am still trying to recover and that is why I have been more absent on blogging. The same is true for many of my friends, lots of bad luck. There were a lot of unnecessary deaths and hardships in 2011. One of my coworkers even had her Husband murdered in a robbery 3 days after Christmas! Another friend lost his wife to breast cancer. The point is, I am ready to move beyond 2011. I am hoping 2012 will be better for a lot of people (including me, pretty please!).

It's funny because when I searched Google Pictures for a "2012" picture I was expecting to find lots of happy people from New Year's with funny 2012 glasses. What did I find? All Doomsday pictures...eekk. My personal opinion is that people like drama and create things like this to keep themselves amused. Didn't they say the world was going to end in 2000? No one mentions that anymore. 25 years from now there will be a new date and new worries. Do I think our planet is in trouble? Absolutely. However, I don't think it is going to blowup or collide with an asteroid or anything on a particular date. If mother nature were that predictable then the so called "Meteorologists" would at least be able to tell us if it was going to rain. Let's face it, they don't know crap.What is your opinion on 2012?

On to merrier news....I did have a VERY good Christmas gift wise. Hubby really surprised me by taking notes at a mall trip. He went to Sephora and picked me up some gifts:

pureDKNY Verbena

Urban Decay's Naked Palette

Have I mentioned how much I love my Husband? : ) I have been obsessed with this pureDKNY perfume since I received a sample a few months ago. It smells better than any other perfume I have ever had. It also smells incredible on my skin and lasts a decent amount of time.

The Urban Decay Naked Palette is something that I have drooled over for YEARS. I was telling my Husband about it when we were in the store and I kept looking at it. I could have bought it for myself, but I just could NOT bring myself to pay $48 for it. I am SO glad that Hubby did though. This is hands down the best eyeshadow I have ever used. I tested it out with the primer potion and 14 hours after putting it on, it looked just like it did when I first put it on. I don't know if it is the primer potion, the eyeshadow or both. All I know is that I now think this is completely worth the $48. Splurge on it Ladies! If you can't afford the Palette just yet, at least pick up the primer potion. Since I am so awesome, I will tell you that you can pick it up cheap ($10 for 10ml bottle..great deal) at Urban Decay right now. They also have some palettes on sale and a 24/7 shadow pencil set (that I just bought with some Christmas money...Thanks Mom) on Urban Decay's website.

I also scored an Amazon Kindle, iPod, lot's of Bath and Body Works, a Cheesecake Factory gift card (YUM!) and more! Thanks to all my amazing family members! What did you get?
