The Christmas Tag

Maybe, just maybe I'm a liiittle bit early with this tag but I'm just SO EXCITED. So I don't care and I'm doing it anyway. 

1. What is your favourite Christmas Movie/s?

The polar express! I watch this movie every year around christmas since I can remember. 

2. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?

Christmas Eve, It's been a tradition in my family so I don't really mind.

3. Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?

Not just one memory, I just love spending time with my family and the good food and the christmas lights etc.

4. favorite festive food?

Christmas dinner! Especially the turkey my dad makes.

5. Favourite Christmas gift ?

I think every year it's a different gift I love to death but my favorite from last year was my mac lipstick in the color Rebel.

6. Favourite Christmas scent?

I want to say the christmas tree but sadly we never get a real one. I love the scent of real ones though.

7. Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?

I unpack my presents with my family and we just eat a lot of delicious food.

8. What tops your tree?

A golden star!

9. As a kid what was the one (crazy, wild, extravagant) gift you always asked for but never received? 

When I was little I always wanted a rabbit but never got one, I still asked for one every year. When I got a little older I just asked for Harry Styles (I may still do that)
10. What's the best part about Christmas for you? 

I think I can talk for hours about the things I love about christmas but the most important things are being together with my family, all the beautiful christmas decoration, the christmas songs and movies, the red cups at Starbucks, watching snow fall and you can eat delicious and a lot of food without feel guilty.

Thanks for reading, I won't be only posting christmas obsessed posts and I promise I will upload a fall/winter outfit sooon.

Autumn Beauty Essentials 2014

It's November, for me that means it's officially autumn. I know it's been for a while now but I always imagine it as long as possible. It's not that I don't like fall but I love summer. Anyways I'm just going to focus on the positives of fall. Which are the cozy nights, the beautiful and comfortable clothes and it's nearly christmas (not really but I want it to be). Today I'm gonna share with you what my autumn beauty essentials are. I'll be posting another post for my fall outfits. 

Starting with nail polish. On the left a dark purple polish with a beautiful silver shimmer from Sephora (electroshot nr. 96). I just love wearing dark polishes in the fall/winter. I don't know if Sephora still sells this one, I bought it in a sale a while ago. 
The one on the right is called A woman's prague-ative and is from OPI. I just love everything about this polish. On your nails it's literally a pumpkin color and I LOVE pumpkins so much, (idk it's a weird obsession). You also can see the beautiful orange glitters on your nails, it's less red than on the photo though. 

Also hand themed is this hand cream from the body shop. I've never loved the scent of a hand cream as much as this one. It literally smells like winter and coziness. It's actually from the christmas collection from 2 years ago I believe. I didn't open it 'till last year and I absolutely fell in love. It's nearly empty so I have to find a new one soon. I notice that my hands get very dry in the colder months so a hand cream is needed. 

Next are lip care products. Which are probably my most important essential. I hate chapped lips and I always carry a lip butter or something with me for when it's needed. I just think lips are a really important part of your face and can make you look a lot neater. I switch my lip products a lot but at the moment I'm obsessed with this Nivea lip butter. I own two other flavors but this one is my absolute favorite. It gives a very subtle baby pink color. 
I also like baby lips a lot, I own every baby lips that you can get in Holland and Germany. This blue one is called hydrate and doesn't have any color. 

I love lip products just very much and I can't have enough. In the fall I wear darker shades, this one from mac is my favorite. It's called rebel. It stays on the whole day, I only have to retouch like two or three times a day. That's amazing. The only downside is that because it stains so well that if you take it of, you keep seeing a pink shade on your lips for at least one day. But that's okay because I wear lip products every day. 
The red one is from Bourjois and is called red island. It's a pretty outstanding red one, not really a fall color but I like it in the fall because it matches my outfits really well. It's a color boost, glossy finish lipstick. When I wear it, it stays on my lips for about four hours without eating (I drink a lot though). It's also hydrating and that's exactly how it feels on the lips, so not sticky on anything. 

For face products, I always want a medium/full coverage foundation for fall. Because my face gets a bit dull and I just find that a good foundation can make your face so much better. I'm loving the super stay better skin foundation from Maybelline right now. It gives a very good coverage but doesn't feel heavy on my face. 
A bronzer can also do wonders. This one is just from a random drugstore in my city. A bronzer gives just that glowy, sunny effect that you get in the summer from the sun but obviously not in the fall. You can also accentuate your jawline and cheekbones really well with bronzer. That's what I like to do. 

Not a beauty product but I had to include a candle, because It's not really autumn without candles. This one is from Ikea and is apple scented. It's a pretty fresh scent, normally I go for spiced scents especially in the fall. 

These were all my autumn beauty essentials. I hope you liked reading it.
