My mother-in-law calls lipstick, “lippy.”

I like that about her.

When I got home from work today, I found the package that I ordered from Clinique on my front porch. (yay, presents! … that I bought for myself.)

My powder and bronzer had arrived.  And even better, so did my “free gift” with purchase.

It contained lip gloss, mascara, cream blush, make up remover, eye cream — and a delectable exfoliating scrub that made my face feel smooth and fresh.

I turned on my new Adele CD and played with all my new make up while the toddler ate crackers and dropped crumbs in my sheets.

Life is good.

It’s the little things. Isn’t it, girls?

    Dear Lauren, my daughter (now 22) and I always get excited when Clinique does its “gift with purchase”. Of course I purchase one article for her and one for myself, therefore we each get a “GIFT”. It is indeed the “little things in life”.
