Share a favorite Christmas memory
- My favorite memory about Christmas. Going back to Sicily and dressing as Santa, scaring my nephew ( 6years old),he knew that Santa only brought gift to good boys and he was a terrible one,(seriously) he set quietly on the chair, his arms folded looking down. Everybody got their gifts and I turned towards him and said his name. Oh the look on his face, priceless!

Update on daily Prize!!!! So apparently I'm an impulsive shopper and I don't read the fine print or large in your face print. I just headed back over to vintagebella to read more on the Pumpkin Butt lip balm. Head over to her store to read it your self her explanation on it is funny!
That said it seems the lip balm was a mishap and doesn't smell too good. So I added in the Cherry Frosting Lip balm to the daily prize in case the pumpkin butt is too offensive you can still enjoy the Cherry Frosting!
