‘Twas the night before Christmas, when I arrived home,
Makeup lasted all night? – wow, thanks Lancome!
Liking, and sharing, and pinning, and snapping,
Remembering now I hadn’t finished my wrapping.
Finally all done, it was now time for bed,
The idea to try that new nail colour went through my head.
Painted and polished, I slipped into a nap,
The most wonderful vision – mastering liner with the eyes of a cat.
When out in the hall there came such a smell,
I sprang from my bed thinking, “what the hell?”
Away to the bathroom I flew like a flash,
Plugged in was the flat iron – leaving my counter in ash.
The blinking light from my laptop gave off a glow,
Ah – one more time down my news feed. I’ll give it a go.
When checking my email what did appear?
An agency sending samples in the New Year.
“Spring 2016 giveaways” – I gave it a click,
“What products are you interested in – must answer quick!”
The fastest I’ve typed with my address and name,
I smiled, and recited them all without shame:
“Oh, Too Faced! And Benefit! Urban Decay and Tarte!
These are the brands I hold close to my heart!”
Smiling and hoping they actually come through,
I start brainstorming my next post – perhaps a new ‘do?
Curls, and buns, and teasing it to the sky,
I wonder how long these styles will fly?
On to 2016, when the year is new,
Will my favorites still be relevant – those tried and true?
“Silly!” I think – volume and ooph,
Nothing is wrong with a little bit of a poof.
As I drew down ideas on my pad with a pen,
Maybe 2015 product reviews? Which ones were a ten?
Getting ahead of myself, maybe I am…
But note to self – remember St. Tropez’s in shower-tan.
A bundle of ideas I’ll remember to tack,
Perhaps an update on my favorite beauty hacks?
Eyes – longer lashes! And concealer – how to bake.
Mastering the perfect brows – how many words will this take?!
Laying my head down I’m more than exhausted,
Calculating numbers of how much these products have costed.
I’m done for the year, and what a year it has been!
Thank you to all of my readers! My gratitude – I don’t know where to begin!
Oh one last thing—
“Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!”
