Things to do in December/Christmas

December is one of my favorite month of the year. I love Christmas; if it's even possible, I think I'm loving it more each year.

I have barely started Christmas shopping... but no stress, right? The other day, I bought a Christmas CD, that I'll listen to all december. And I'll probably watch many, many Christmas movie (#fave)!

  • Decorate your own room; go get you some fairy lights and put it in your room and you can actually leave them there all year.
  • Decorate a christmas tree.
  • Go for a walk when it's snowing outside.
  • Buy an ugly Christmas sweater to wear on the mornings of Christmas eve and Christmas.
  • Do a wine & cheese, also, buy all the Christmassy food! YUM. Candies, chocolate, CANDY CANES? Yes. Please.
  • Do yourself a hot chocolate with marshmallows and watch christmas movies with the family (ELF, Grinch, Home Alone, Love Actually...)
  • Listen to all the Christmas songs
  • Do some cool, Pinterest recipes
  • Do a gingerbread house
  • Christmas shopping when the festive music is playing, you can find some really good christmas playlist online.
  • Light all your candles
  • Go for a walk when there is a light snow :)
  • Relax and read books
  • Do some christmas inspired nail art
  • Try to do some cool DIY you see on Pinterest
  • Go take a walk in the woods and do a photoshoot
  • Take some photographies
  • Buy yourself a christmas themed PJs and some new slippers!
  • Make your friends & family Christmas cards

hello December!

post signature
Hello December! It is now time to eat chocolate everyday from our chocolate calendar; counting down the days 'til Christmas.

I can't believe we are already December & that Christmas is a few weeks away! Where did 2015 even go?! I have barely started shopping for Christmas gifts; I think I'll be going Christmas shopping today. And to believe that 2016 is a month away blows my mind.

I'm so excited about decorating and making my room cozy. I love hearing Christmas music while shopping. 

I'm a big Christmas lover and enjoy doing anything related to Christmas. I even bought a Christmas CD, and I think that now that it's December it's acceptable to listen to it.

I'm also looking for ideas for winter/christmas related blog post. So any ideas will be appreciated.

Anyways, can't believe it's now time to use my Twisted Peppermint & Vanilla Beam Noel candle from Bath & body works. I hope everyone has a great month of December, counting down the days 'til the magical day of Christmas...

Yves Rocher | Haul

Hi everyone! Lately I've slowly started shopping a bit... it's the effect Christmas has on me haha! I'll show you what I bought at Yves Rocher, a store I love... Yves Rocher is an amazing store that has amazing products/offer. You basically always get tons of gifts, free products, 50% off of some products, samples, it's heaven for a beauty lover like me. Their product are amazing as well. Many of them are staples of mine. So anyways, here's what I bought/received as a gift, the last time I visited Yves Rocher...

3 min. Cranberry Cooling Effect Mask | I've been wanting to try this one for a while. During the winter time, a mask that makes my face looks glowy/radiant? uhm, how about yes?

Micellar Cleansing Water | This is staple for me. Much more affordable than Bioderma. This removes everything and smells so good. Leaves my skin feeling fresh and revitalized. It feels great on the skin. I love that you can use it on your eyes/face/lips. I need an endless supply of this.

Apple Delight Shimmering body lotion | This was a free gift. It smells amazing, apples and vanilla? Yum.  Can't wait to try it. A shimmering body lotion, sounds nice for the holidays!

Hydra Vegetal Moisture Boost Serum | As I don't have a Yves Rocher in town, whenever I'm there it means stocking up time! So naturally, I had to get one of my favorite serum. This is a repurchase for me. I had one half off and one as a free gift! YAY :) 

Spicy Vanilla Shower & Bath Gel | Anything vanilla speaks to me. This one smells delicious and I cannot wait to try it during the holidays.

Organic Vanilla Shower Gel | I have the body mist of this and I adore the smell. I wanted to buy a full size body wash to try it, but the girl at the counter told me I could get a free small one of various scents, so I took this one.. of course!

Free bracelets & a coin gold and black bag, samples of Sebo Vegetal Mattifying Gel Cream & comme une Evidence perfume

Next up are the Fizzy bath cubes; I've been wanting to try one for a while, so I picked some up! I picked: Raspberry, Vanilla & Apple Delight! Can't wait to try them!! I'm gonna try one tonight, not sure which one yet... :) 

Hope you enjoyed looking through my haul! If you love Yves Rocher as much as me, please feel to let me know your favorite products in the comments! :) xx

Hard Candy So Baked Bronzer in Tiki

post signatureHi beauties! Hope you all had a lovely week. 

So, today I'll be reviewing one of the product I love for this season: the Hard Candy So Baked Bronzer in Tiki. 

This light bronze golden champagne highlighter has been said to be a dupe for MAC's Soft & Gentle; which a way cheaper alternative! This highlighter is perfect for a bronzey, glowy look. Hard Candy calls it a bronzer, but I see it as a highlighter... 

What I love about this highlighter is that it looks really natural, but you can also build it up. I use it on my cheekbones and sometimes under my eyebrows, but you can use it on your cupids bow, nose and any other area you'd like to highlight.

For the prize, you get a quality product and a never-ending quantity of it. It's super easy to work with and it last all day as well. It's shimmery but not glittery.

This week I've been loving...

Hey everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful week!

I've been trying to use different product every few weeks, so I can rediscover some products I already have! So let's see what I've been loving this week...

Whenever the season changes, I like to change my perfume, one of them is the PINK Warm & Cozy body mist. I don't know, I love this smell for the colder weather and it just makes me happy. It smells like warm vanilla and cotton candy. It's not really fruity, more fresh.  On my lips, I've been wearing the NYX butter gloss in Eclair.  This is a great natural light pink for everyday wear. I love the formulation of the butter glosses and I really want to try more of them. It's not sticky at all and it has a nice smell! Essence Lash Princess Volume Mascara is a great mascara for volume. The cobra brush helps to get every lashes... Plus, the packaging is like adorable. MAC Gingerly blush is one of my favorite blush ever. As I'm losing my summer tan I'm looking for ways to always a glow and this is the way to go. It's super easy to work with as it works as a blush/bronzer. It's a peachy/brown blush. It looks very natural. MAC lipstick in Brave is a staple for me. This pink nude is great for everyday wear. Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick in Lolita is amazing. Of course, I will buy the full size one when I'm done with this one. The formula is amazing and last a good few hours.  This color would look great on everyone. You'll get a lot of compliments. I think this might be my favorite lipstick product of all time! Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronze is a great bronzer. I've been using this quite a lot and on the plus side, it smells like chocolate! Yummy!

Bourjois 1 seconde nail polish | Turquoise Block

If you know me, you know that I own way too many turquoise things. It's one of my favorite color alongside coral.

My sister actually bought this for my birthday, she knows me well, right? So you guessed it, I love this color. A bright turquoise/aquamarine is right up my alley. This doesn't look like anything I already have.

As I mentioned, I love the color but I also love the 'gel/silicone-like' formula. It is opaque in just one coat. And with the panoramic brush, the application is so easy. It dries super quick as well.

The only downside to this beaut' is that it start chipping after 2-3 days. But on a more positive note, it's quick to apply, dries fast and is gorgeous.

MAC Extra Dimension Eyeshadow in Silver Sun

It's no secret that MAC eyeshadows are one of the most popular eyeshadows on the market. Why wouldn't they be? They're pigmented, smooth, last all day and have huge selection of beautiful, original colors.

My latest MAC eyeshadow is an Extra Dimension Eyeshadow in Silver Sun.  Silver Sun is a beautiful, unique that I don't have in my collection, it's a midtone dirty seafoam green.

Extra Dimensions eyeshadows are beautifully pigmented and can be used wet or dry. Let's not lie, this collection has a beautiful imprint that doesn't go away easily - YAY!

It's beautiful with brown eyes - works well with colors like shimmery browns, matte browns, darker greens, purples, blacks and golds.

Silver Sun stays on all day. It's super smooth - easy to work with. Also, blends really well. 

Even if it looks shimmery in the picture above, it doesn't look like this on the eyelid. So don't worry about having any fallouts!

Final thoughts || Great eyeshadow and amazing color. One of my most used eyeshadow at the moment. I really want to try more eyeshadows from the Extra Dimensions line. Please tell me in the comments if you have any suggestions!

Have a great morning/day/night/whenever you're reading this! Smile, discover new things and meet new cool people!

Tag | The beauty blogger

Hey everyone! Hope you all had a lovely week!
I've been loving tags at the moment; tags are always a great way to learn more about the blogger! Im planning to do non-tag post next week, if there's anything you'd like to see, let me know in the comments!

1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
My hair are naturally curly. 

2. What is your natural hair colour?
I'm a brunette

3. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?
Go to a salon.

4. How often do you wash your hair?
Normally, every 2-3 days.

5. Do you wear the same style every day or change it?
Most days, I wear the same styles... but I need to try new things. Pinterest has too many pretty style to have the same look everyday!

6. Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon?
Most of the times, I paint my nails. But I like to go to a salon from time to time :)

7. How often do you change your nail polish?

8. Do you polish your toes in the winter, too or just in the summer?
Sometimes I do it in the winter too. But most of the time, I do it mostly in the Summer!

9. How long does it take to put on your makeup?
It depends, when I'm working I don't have that much time, so probably 10-15 minutes. But when I have the chance I like to try new things, and when I'm going out it takes longer as well.

10. What do you do first? Face or eyes?

11. Do you "collect" makeup or just buy what you need when you need it?
When you're a beauty blogger it's hard to just buy what you need. Some things (mascara, foundation, face powder), most of the time I will buy them only when I need them. So I would say its a mix haha!

Not often, most of times it's just for nights out or events.

Not when I have no where to go.

Probably not.

16. How many high end products do you have?
A lot haha!

17. How often do you wash your makeup brushes?
Not enough.

18. Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you are getting dressed?
Sometimes I plan. Sometimes I don't.

19. How often do you change your handbag?
I have a few everyday bags that I change from time to time. I have smaller ones for when I go out or travelling.

20. What time do you get up & go to sleep?
It's never the same. Most of the time it depends on if I'm working or not, or have early plans. If I don't have to be up early, I'll go to bed late, probably.

21. How often & when do you workout?
Not often as I should. I would like to workout like 4-5 times a week. Life gets in the way and most of the time I only get to workout 1-2 a weeks... oh well, it's a start, right?

22. Left-handed or Right-handed?

23. How tall are you?

24. Do you speak a foreign language?

25. How many pets do you have?
A dog.

26. How often are you on Blogger?
Probably like 3-4 days a week to read & write. But I check it everyday for my stats, comments and stuff like that :)

27. Do you read the comments posted on blogs?

28. Do you keep a list of products to try as you see other posts?

29. How did you come up with your blog name?
