(Yes, you have seen that photo before. I’m wearing the Pixi Lip Blush! I was too lazy to find another ‘featured image’ for the post…)

OK, so this month’s ‘beauty’ round-up includes a bag and a cat, but hey! It’s my round-up and I can put bags and cats in if I please…can’t I? All of the video info is below the video pane – for those wanting more details on the fabulous Pai Skincare offer, you can read more about that here: Pai Luxury Gift Sets

Not long, now, until kitty arrives. I’m frantically trying to schedule Christmas Gift Guides and December posts, just in case I go completely soft and forget how to type! So excited, as you will see in the video! People with a tendency to scream at kitten videos, brace yourselves:

    Hi Ruth,
    Just wanted to thank you for turning me on to Pai! I love their skincare and am thrilled with their company and service. Ordered the two Christmas gift sets (the night you posted this video on Youtube, I believe) and they JUST arrived to me in Texas today! How’s that for a Black Friday treat?! The sets are so luxurious (had to open the boxes right away!), I’m so glad I decided to gift them to myself for my birthday next week. And now I have a couple of quality lip balms to gift away for Christmas, as I’m still enjoying the first one I purchased over the summer. ;)

    Thanks again!

    Oh – and if only I could have gifted myself a kitten… lol He’s a beauty! Congratulations!

    Please – feel free to add cats and bags into every video from now on – they make everything even nicer.

    (and I think Ted is such a great name – I love when cats have normal, grown up person names. Like Bob. And Betty.)

    Actually, a make-up question this time (I was so blown away by Lily and Ted that I forgot). Some lipstains look horrible after a few hours – I’ve found they make your lips dry and the colour cracks – does the Pixi? xx
