So, sweet Cathy, told me she wanted to give her stuff to someone who would appreciate it. I definitely appreciated it. From the bottom of my heart, I appreciate it. Thank you so much, Cathy. I don't think you will ever know just how much that meant to me.
I received my package, two boxes actually, on January 24th. I was expecting them that Friday but they showed up on Wednesday, I believe. Came on such a good day. It's fast delivery was unexpected. There was a knock on my door and when I opened it to see the mailman standing there with two boxes in his hand, I almost screamed! But I didn't. I didn't want him to think I was a crazy woman.
So, you dolls want to see what Miss Cathy sent me? I think you do!
|OMG, my goodies have arrived!|
|Aw, this was so sweet. She sent me a hand written note...|
on her own personal stationary. Too cute.
|Box #1 opened up.|
|Wow! E.L.F. I love E.L.F!|
|Makeup Geek brush.|
I love Marlena of Makeup Geek!
She's, like, famous to me :)
|I just about died when I saw the Leishi and Lamei pigments.|
|This was in box #2.|
The little black bag was super heavy.
I wonder what's inside...
|What?? All of this was inside!|
So many colors and products I have never tried.
And the mini mascaras are awesome.
|Sooo pretty but I didn't know what it was.|
|Nope. A set of Crown brushes.|
That night that she sent me the DM and I agreed and I accepted her gift, I asked her how I could pay her for the shipping. She even declined me paying for that! Can you believe her? I mean, wow! This just seemed too good to be true. I told my sweetheart about it and even he was a little leery of it. All understandable but I had a feeling that Cathy was the real deal. And she is. I adore her!
When I say that I adore her, some of you might think it's just because she "bought" my feelings with gifts. Do the gifts have anything to do with it? Honestly, yes. I say yes because by her giving me these goodies, free and clear, it shows me what kind of person she really is. Like I said, who would give something away to someone they don't know all that well for free and not want anything back for it? Not a whole lot of people, that's for sure. And yes, maybe the stuff she gave me she had duplicates of or she just didn't like them. It doesn't matter. What matters is the intention which she gave them to me. She solely wanted to help me out.
I'm happy with my gifts and I have given them a good home because I love them and I appreciate where they came from, who they came from, and the good intentions they came with. It's kind of crazy how much a absolutely adore cosmetics and how I treat them like my little babies. Is that weird?
Any way, I just wanted to share this incredible gesture with you all. Honest and genuine people still exist. Cathy and I still chat when we can on Twitter and I visit her blog often. She is definitely someone I can see myself being friends with for a very, very long time.
Cathy, you are a true doll. You are a very sweet person and I appreciate the gift you have sent me, the support and advice you have given me, the :) and bahahas you have shared with me, and the kindness you have shown me. Take care, friend. I'll talk with you later!
Luv & Luk,
