{Gifts from Afar}

My parents just got back from 3 months abroad. They traveled through Northern Africa & Europe. I would have loved to have gone, but it's okay. I got presents. Want to see a few?

{Longchamp Love}
A peony-pink Longchamp! Just in time, too. My text books have taken a toll on my current bag. {Mine has the longer handle too, so I can wear it to class.}

{Chanel Travel Makeup Palette}
A multi-use compact by Chanel...I these compacts. 4 eyeshadows, 2 glosses, 2 lipsticks, & a blush. And the colors are very wearable. I love that it's called "Fly High" because it's only available at Duty Free Shops.

You want to know what the best part is though? My parents are home.
Yay.
