And, although I'm not a huge fan of the whole snowflake/reindeer sweater trend this year, I do like how cozy and comfy this sweater looks:

I know these aren't the most stylish, but when you spend 3/4 of your life walking like I do, comfort plays a BIG factor in deciding what shoes to wear:

So I decided to go online and read reviews of the best products for oily, acne-prone skin and read that the Clinique anti-blemish 3-step system had worked for a lot of people. So, I decided to go ahead and spend my hard-earned money on the expensive stuff. 80 euros and three weeks later, it's safe to say that I've found a new favorite! My skin is softer, less oily (but not dry), and has cleared up significantly! I still get the occasional flare up, but they are much smaller and clear up MUCH faster. I am one happy camper :). So, goodbye messy makeup drawer!!

So, this morning I stopped by a couple of my favorite stores, H&M and Zara. I only meant to be there for 15-20 minutes a piece, but sort of got sucked in when I saw the new holiday-ish displays. I ended up buying a really cute gift at Zara (can't post the picture until after Christmas) and then also bought these for myself:

The other day I went shopping at Sephora since my hubby was on business in Madrid (which also means he wasn't there to hold me back! ;) I also happened to have a 20% off coupon, which was pretty nice and contributed to my little splurge. Among my purchases were some new Dior foundation and powder and (new to Sephora in Spain) one of my faves-Urban Decay. I love their eyeliner and eyeshadows. The colors are great and they last ALL day, so I stocked up on a couple of those.
I also grabbed a couple of mini Sephora brand nail polishes. They have some new metallics for the holidays and they go on super nice and I love the crazy shimmer/matte combination. The bottles are tiny, but you only need one coat with these ones. Thinking of going back to get some more and giving them out for Christmas :p I LOVE this time of year...gift giving is the best!!!!

Well, since it has cooled down considerably, I've started baking again to the joy (and chagrin) of some of my friends. ;) I've been going crazy trying new recipes-lemon poppyseed muffins, whole wheat biscotti and my latest-homemade whole wheat bread. Very tasty!!
