Christmas in July!

Today I'm linking up with Alyx from Every Day is a New Adventure for Christmas in July! 

Unfortunately, when we went out of town was exactly when I received my Christmas in July present....well it rained the entire time we were out of town which meant that everything got wet.

Never fear, nothing in the package got ruined and when I opened it I was pleasantly surprised! The wonderful Leanna who blogs over at OMG I'm Back in DC!

First off, how adorable is the tissue paper that she added into it! I wish I had thought of something adorable like this!

Although the package got a little wet, luckily nothing got damaged! Especially this cute little handwritten note! I opened it up only to find the cutest little stationery! 

So cute! She had the sweetest handwritten note to accompany everything in the package! I love how she was able to relate everything in the package with things that we both love [hello coffee & nail polish!!].

I love all magazines, especially fashion mags! I feel like you can learn a lot (maybe it's just me) from hearing what other people have to say! And where do you get the best advice? From the people who know the business! Next, I love how she gave me everything I need for a mani/pedi! So sweet and thoughtful! I had never tried the Starbucks refreshers before, but these are TO DIE FOR! They're so delicious!

Here is everything all set up on my bed! The magazine was a little wet, but it wasn't ruined! I had to let it dry out for a little bit, but it ended up being perfectly fine! I don't subscribe to Glamour, but after this issue I'm really thinking about subscribing!

Here you can see all the beautiful nail polishes lined up on my nightstand!
