    I was out of town for a couple of days, look what was waiting for me when I got back tonight!

    The coffee is from a local roaster, a blend called "Boise's Best". From the same roaster is a dark chocolate and espresso bar. Both of these sound wonderful!

    There is unscented soap from Henri et Victoria, a soap I have not used before. I am looking forward to using this lovely new soap!

    Thanks to my secret Santa. 20181222_195806.jpeg 20181222_200056.jpeg

    Well, my parcel from my Secret Santa finally arrived in the mail this afternoon just in time for New Year's! A big thank you to Canada Post and its fall/winter rotating strike... But the parcel was well worth the wait!

    A vintage Trusteel SR for when I decide to dip my toe in the Dark Side again; a modern TTO just because; three brands of blades to fuel the TTO -- two I haven't tried and I do have one sample tuck of Feathers but haven't tried them either yet; an Omega synthetic brush; a sample of the new B+M Reserve scent, Waves; a full tub of the B+M new scent, Tuesday (at least, Waves and Tuesday are new news to me anyway); a fountain pen (and it's my preferred Fine point too!); and a sticker, pin and patch from The Holy Black company just to round things off. Great haul!

    Thank you, Secret Santa! I will lather up for a Santa shave tomorrow to start the new year off with a bang!

    Yes, you are right). I the whole year assiduously studied game rules ' Secret Santa ')
    Therefore dear Санта has noticed my works).
    Thanks Santa!

    Да, вы правы). Я целый год усердно изучал правила игры "Секретный Санта" )
    Поэтому уважаемый Санта заметил мои труды).
    Спасибо Санта!

    Looking back I realize I have forgotten to thank my secret Santa.

    Thank you for the lovely soaps the Santa Paula reminds me of the Orange Groves when I was growing up and the life is a Beach is a refreshing bit of summer in the bleak of the winter.

    :bounce017: Secret Santa arrived today!! :bounce017:

    002.JPG

    Natura Siberica Shower Gel
    Natura Siberica Shampoo
    Natura Siberica Cooling Gel aftershave
    Nivea Extreme Freshness aftershave
    Nivea Body Shave stick
    Gillette Rubie and Gillette Rubie Plus blades

    The shower gel and shampoo will get used tomorrow morning along with the Nivea aftershave. The cooling gel aftershave will have to wait for warmer temperatures as temps over the next several days will be colder than they've been in a very long time.

    The Nivea aftershave has a very nice scent and the wife likes it so it will definitely get added to the rotation.

    Thank you so much Santa!

    This gift is very much appreciated!
