Mail Haul

Posted by CheapRunnerMichelle

Other then going to work during the day...this pic pretty much sums up the kind of week I've had. It all started late Tuesday night and continues into today. I would say that Saturday was the worst of it, and dare I say...I think I'm starting to feel a little tiny bit better. In addition to feeling like garbage, my ears have been plugged, so I've been deaf too. So my hubby bought me a great gift the other night


I have an appointment at the doctor's tomorrow morning to get my ears flushed out, and I am so excited to be able to hear again.

It ended up being a great mail week though!

Last month I signed up for a mug swap.  I ended up getting paired with a really sweet girl Lindi from Texas. After a few email exchanges we sent our mugs to each other.


I know it's kinda hard to read in the pic, but the mug says 'Michelle Princess on the Run'. I thought it was so nice of her to take the time to get to know me a bit and really add a personal touch! I hear there are rumors about doing this mug swap again - and I would participate again in a heartbeat!


Some reading material arrived (for all the hours I am spending in bed right now)


Loose Button is a beauty subscription that I have shared on here comes out every 3 months. Some great products in it this month that I am looking forward to trying!


I signed up for iPsy a loooong time ago, but this month I finally got off the wait list, and received my first package. This one is a monthly beauty subscription, and seems to be a great value...all this for $10...a full size OPI nail polish, a bare minerals lipstick, a face primer and an eye shadow quad and that cute makeup bag that it was all shipped in.

This has not exactly been the week to try any of that out, so once I'm feeling better, I'll start playing around with my new products.

And last, but certainly not favourite mail that arrived this week


Can't wait to break these beauties in!!!

Did you get anything exciting in the mail this week?

Anyone have some nice weather that you would like to bottle up and send my way?!? We were still getting snow yesterday :(
