Fresh Let It Glow Giveaway!

Beauties, I’m turning into my mother.

Remember last month when I boasted about being a Gift Whisperer? I’m not denying I possess the gift. However, the downside of being a Gift Whisperer is that often I pick up gifts waaaaaaay before the gift giving event and find them later when the event (in this case Christmas) has become a faded memory.  

My mother did the same thing. I will NEVER forget the year of the Easy Bake Oven circa 1963. It was even turquoise just like our kitchen. I didn’t just ask Santa Clause–I pleaded with him. I wanted that oven more than anything else on earth.

In our family, Santa’s presents were left upwrapped under the tree. I think I was about maybe 8 years old (I know I hung on to the Santa thing too long) and I rushed downstairs on Christmas morning to find an easel–yeah, you read that correctly–a dumb easel–chalkboard on one side, paper & paints on the other–hardly a cool baking machine. Finally when the grownups got up I asked my mom why Santa hadn’t brought me my coveted Easy Bake Oven. She got a panicked look on her face, disappeared to the garage and then told me–”oh honey, Santa accidently left your Easy Bake Oven in the trunk of my car!” Uh, yeah riiiiiight mom! At that moment, I was just so overjoyed to get the oven I didn’t care if it came from outer space. But later, I realized for the first time that my brother and sister were right and there was no Santa. Thanks a lot mom.

Anywaaaay, my loss of memory is your gain beauties, because today’s giveaway is the Fresh Let It Glow gift set I got for somebodyand just found it stashed on a closet shelf this week.

    Probably about 7 or 8 I can’t really remember but my siblings and I still get presents from our parents that have Santa on the label, lucky us that he still makes visits to grown ups! By the way FRESH is great love Lemon Sugar as a summer fragrance.

    I’m so glad you have a bad memory! lol

    I was 6 when I knew. I remember whispering with my older sister about it and we didn’t know our baby sister was eavesdropping, until she comes out with, “There’s no Santa????”. Then we were begging her not to tell mom that she heard it from us, when she burst into tears and ran to tell our mom… *sigh* baby sisters are a PITA!

  • Valerie C.

    Lol…I was hoping you weren’t going to ask that one! My two older brothers still laugh about me insisting Santa came to our house when I was about 10. I think I was just stubborn because they claimed he didn’t exist for years prior :) This kit looks so nice. The Sugar Plum Lip Treatment is something I meant to buy but didn’t. Thanks!

    • cindy

    Hmmm I think I was about 6 or 7. I didn’t have a massive breakdown or anything, I was a pretty suspicious child hehe.

    Well, it was a case of “have to”…you see when I was about seven, my Dad decided to party until the wee hours on Christmas eve. When he finally did get home, I guess he was in no shape to help my tiny little Mom get Christmas out of the trunk so she woke me up. I wasn’t sad though, I was proud cause I felt all grown up to help my Mama. :)

    About I think it was 8 too, when I said why are the gifts wrapped in our wrapping paper type? lol Though a little tiny part of me still believes in a Santa type of person that goes around each year and doesn’t special things, not so much gifts maybe, but something. :)

    • cindy

      I agree, although I don’t beleive in Santa anymore, I DO believe in the spirit of Christmas!

    First of all, please DONT enter me in the contest, as I have this set. I haven’t tried the mascara or glow, the fragrance is a bit pungent, but I use the lip treatment almost daily. It’s moisturizing, smells wonderful, but the color isn’t as deep as I’d hoped for. Good luck to all of you ladies!

    Second, I’m sure I must have been around 7 when I figured out it was mom and dad who were Santa, and I let my little brother and sister keep on believing.

  • Megan Bond

    I was in kindergarten and a girl down the street, a big third grader, told me on the walk home from the bus stop. I ran to my mother and tears and she told me what that other girl said was true, there was no Santa Clause. I was five years old and devastated. Even worse, my mom told me that if I told any of my friends at school, SHE would make sure I got no presents that year. I wanted so badly to let everyone else in on the fraud…

    • cindy

      Awww, poor kid! I still believe!

  • Erin

    Hmm…I don’t know when I stopped believing in Santa. Probably around 8 or so. But watching my niece and nephew open their presents every Christmas makes me happier than Santa ever did!

    I guess when I was around 13. I had my suspicions earlier and even tried to catch my parents by asking for Santa’s signature in a letter. But my parents were one step ahead… they had our neighbors deliver presents, eat cookies, and provide me with a John Hancock while we were all out of the house. I was flabbergasted!

    • cindy

      Wow, your parents went to a lot of trouble, how sweet!

  • Katie

    I was 11.. I finally noticed the wrapping paper was all the same.. Tisk, Tisk.. Santa’s should always be different : )

  • Lynn

    I wish I had a less depressing story, but this is how it happened to me. It was the year my dad got laid off from his job and became very ill. My mother had to quit her job to stay home and take care of him. It was a tough year for us …and there were no presents from either my parents or Santa under the tree that Christmas. It didn’t come to me immediately, but by the next Christmas I somehow just “knew” that Santa wasn’t real.

    I wanted to add, just to end on a happy note, that my dad did get better and every Christmas since that year has been quite wonderful. :)

    • cindy

      Oh, I’m sorry Lynn. My dad was self-employed so we had years with good Christmases and not so good.

    I realized santa wasn’t real at the age of 6 and my parents asked me what all did I want and began to tell them and midway through my list of demands (lol) my mom stopped me and told me to write it all out so she would know what to get. That following week I found myself in the shopping store with her picking out toys for my baby sister and it all clicked to me.

    I was very old when I stopped believing in Santa Claus (it was just last month! lol…). I think I might have been 11or 12 yrs. old! At least I wasn’t old enough to drive. We were getting ready for church on Christmas Eve and I finally got up the courage to ask my mom if he was real and she told me the truth! Can you believe that? A parent actually telling their kid the TRUTH???

    Quit believing in Santa Claus? Are you kidding? He’s still healthy and going strong, spends lots of time with the Easter Bunny and Tooth Fairy who live nearby. Where did you ever get the idea Santa was not real? I wouldn’t spread that around because he might hear you and never bring you bags and bags of beauty items again!!!!!

    I can’t remember my exact age, it must have been somewhere around 5 years old though, but I distinctly remember already having some doubts as to whether he was real or not when my older brother confirmed it. :-) That’s what older brothers are for I guess, letting us know about the “real world”. :-)
