A Gift Fit For A Princess

Today, Kevin went shopping for each other's Christmas gifts. It was great! First we went to Gamestop. Kevin is getting a Game Cube, Metroid Prime, and a James Bond game. He also pre-ordered COD5 while we were there (of which he is playing the beta right now. Loves it).

Next, we went to the mall. Tim and Patrick went to the arcade while Kevin and I wandered around a couple different stores before landing at the perfume counter at Belk. We had stopped at VS, but Kevin didn't like their perfumes. At Belk, we tested out basically everything. The top contenders were Estee Lauder Pleasures: Delight; Vera Wang Princess; and Roxy. In the end, we selected Princess. I am sooooo excited! It smells delightful.

What Vera Wang says:
Created for the playful, unpredictable, independent woman who treats every day like an event and adventure. This is a woman who likes to make her own magic, this sheer, flirty blend of water lily, lady apple, mandarin meringue, and golden apricot skin are melded with sheer floral notes, accented with dark chocolate, and finished with a pink frosting accord, amber, warm woods, musk, and vanilla - a whimsical treat.

I actually got one of the gift sets, with a body lotion and a little bottle for your purse. It is TOO cute! :-) I love my Kevvy!!!

I am not allowed to have it yet and he cannot have his Game Cube. After all, it is not Christmas yet. But I know, if he pouted and said please, I'd let him play his games.

I may decide to ask for one of the other fragrances for Christmas. They were all so nice.

Anyway, in addition to the fragrance, after Belk, I dragged all the boys to Claire's and picked up some nail polish. I got a blue that is a really beautiful very pigmented color. I swatched a bright extremely pigmented orange while we were there and it came out matte. I don't see a lot of matte polishes. I also got a set with 5 smaller polishes, bright bright colors: green, yellow, orange/coral, fushia/purple, and blue. They are all a bit iridescent and a bit sheer, except for the orange/coral and fushia/purple. Those are pretty good. They also dry matte, but with a top coat look very nice. Not the wet-shine look, but still nice.
