Tricky treats – a true story

Once upon a time, in a frosting filled haven, there lived a beautiful girl, with a penchant for makeup, spice, and everything nice. It was mid of October, and the girl, while sipping at her pumpkin pie coffee, had a super sweet idea: “Good gracious! I will send a Halloween box filled with the sweetest treats to my pink shopaholic friend!”. After gathering all sorts of beauty goodies and sweets, she left her cotton candy house and headed to the post office. The tricky part of the story starts here: the very sweet girl was charged dearly to ship her carefully wrapped package throughout the ocean. But being very generous, she forgot the mishap and consoled herself with a Buttercream Cupcake Beauty Smoothie.
Time went by, Halloween decorations were taken down, but the very sweet girl got no news from her pink shopaholic friend. Rather disappointed, she got lost in contemplation of Archie Comics Resort collection by Charlotte Olympia. 
Christmas was fast approaching, and while decorating her gingerbread mansion with perfectly manicured hands, the beautiful lady got a message from the other end of the ocean: her friend informed her that the gift box was being held hostage at the Customs. They might need to test the beauty treats and taste the scrumptious sweets before releasing the suspicious package! This time the very sweet girl was very crossed: she needed to rest a little on her Candy Cloud Macaron Pillow and massage her temples with some Sweet Creamy Frosting
New Year’s resolutions had been made, and between a hand of Gwen Stefani for OPI starlets and the other, the package was long forgotten. 
But then, something happened. On a cold day at the end of January, Poste Italiane decided that – after all – the mysterious box couldn’t be that dangerous, and against receipt of a pricey reward, the nice post lady was able to deliver the package to a shrieking and jumping pink fashionista.
I know you are reading my very sweet friend, SURPRISE! Thank you thank you thank you! I was moved to tears when I saw the scratched and smashed box bearing your name! Thanks to your thoughtful wrapping, the gifts were safe, except for the chocolates, which look genetically mutated.
I can’t wait to try my brand new Smashbox Primer and Tea Tree Cleanser, and all the other treats!!
Happily pampered ever after. THE END!
 Tons of love
