    I wasn’t too sure if I was going to do this post or not, but I absolutely love reading them and y’all voted for it on Twitter. So you’re welcome I guess?

    Usually, my Christmas list is chock-full of millions of different clothing pieces, but this year it basically consisted of only make-up and some big girl items.
