This Christmas I got many things I wanted. I wanted some quiet time, some festive time and some time with my family and it was just incredible to… blah blah blah blah blah. Let’s get to the good stuff! This year my favorite things are Samsung and Ciate!
For the uninitiated, the Samsung Galaxy S III
is ‘the next big thing’ and I haven’t been able to put mine down since it arrived on Christmas Eve! I LOVE this phone. Outside of being damn beautiful, it is one of the most feature-packed phones on the market today. The screen is huge and gorgeous and Samsung has outdone itself by taking full advantage of the gyroscope by integrating commands associated with your motions. My fave features are silencing the ringing phone by simply turning it over and making a phone call by just bringing the phone up to your ear. What!! I’m still learning everything that this amazing machine can do and I’m loving every minute of it.

Next up is the Ciate Caviar Manicure
Mini Mani Month kit. I can’t tell you how deeply I fell in love with the concept this spring but I never took the time to purchase it for myself. If you follow me on Instagram
you’ve probably seen my Christmas night photos because I couldn’t resist spreading my joy! If you’re not familiar with the ‘Caviar’ manicure, it’s basically a 3D manicure with tiny pearls you apply for extra sparkle and texture. It’s heavenly!

The kit comes with 24 mini colors including four pots of pearls and a few super glittery choices. I did my first manicure today and I’m hoping it lasts through New Year’s Eve but if not, I’ll be happy to try another color combination!
What did Santa bring you this year? Do share!
