December Haul + Mini Me and Bolognese Sauce

Right after I realized I didn't shop at all over Black Friday, I immediately went crazy shopping, which is a bit embarrassing to admit since I was so proud that I refrained from spending any money during that time. Here's my end-of-the-year haul:



I hope everyone enjoyed the holidays. Here I am with my mini me - I love matching her!
