the things we lose have a habit of coming back again.

Can you believe it? Christmas is over. This always makes me feel kind of sad. The build up to Christmas is so beautiful and special....but it manages to go by so quickly that I am always a little blue when once the holiday season has come to an end. There is still New Years Eve to look forward to, but nothing is quite as magical as Christmastime. I for one, will be counting down the days until next year! The music, the movies, the lights, and the memories are always perfect.

If you couldn't tell, I am back from my mini-break. As much as I love blogging, it was nice to get away for a little bit, unplug, and just focus on being with the people I care about most. Did you unplug this holiday season? I did my best to ignore work emails, turn my phone on silent, and just experience each and every moment. It is so easy these days to get caught up in deadlines and the immediacy of our phones, tablets, and all the rest. That makes the Christmas season the perfect excuse to step away from it all.

My holidays were absolutely wonderful. It started off very early in the morning and didn't stop until very late at night. And then there was the annual tradition of boxing day shopping the next morning. To say the last several days have been busy would be an understatement....but I wouldn't change it for anything. I will definitely update you on my holidays, bring you makeup reviews, hauls, and more this week. For now, I just wanted to pop in, say hello, and reminisce on the days past.

So, fill me in. How were your holidays? What did you do to celebrate? And are you ready to get back into the swing of things?
