more fotds, an ootd, and a valentine's surprise

Hi there, lovelies!! It's been really gorgeous here in Florida the past few days, so I did lots of picture-taking on my days off! I thought I'd share my FOTDs first, but tomorrow I've got a collective haul post of sorts to share.  I'd wanted to do a January Favorites, but it's too long overdue now.  I think I'm going to do a "Things I'm Loving"-type post, a la Vivianna's, in the coming week, so keep watch for that. :)  

Sure to be in the Things I'm Loving Post are the new Tokidoki Bellina blushes, Siberia and Skate Girl, which I used in these looks. I've also rediscovered my MAC Blacktrack fluidline - it's so perfect, I'm wondering why I ever strayed??  And of course, NARS Sheer Glow and YSL Rouge Pur Couture #6 are pretty much daily staples (the lippie is what I wear to work every day, too - it never dries at the center of my lips and it's the perfect goes-with-everything shade).

I also wanted to show you this lovely surprise I received in the mail today from my best friend/cousin Amy.  I was never one to go crazy over Valentine's Day, but it's the first time I've been single for it in six years, so let's just say... I wasn't exactly looking forward to it. But this perked me right up.  Don't you love receiving a sweet surprise package in the mail? It's one of my all-time favorite things, I tell you (and I love sending them, too)!

(sorry for the scribble - didn't want my address out there for all to see!)

I've already made my way through half of these babies - oops!!

I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day! (Even if you hate Valentine's Day, just remember - discounted candy and chocolate on the 15th!) See you all soon!

<3 Jess
