The ultimate month of the year? Whaaaat? I cannot believe that another year is passing. Actual I’m very excited, I cannot wait till Christmas and New Year – the family dinner, holidays, presents. What can be better? I don’t know. It’s probably the most cosy and cuddling time of the year.
For December cuddling I have to things to show and talk about. Let’s get down to business, shall we?
Can I start with nail polishes, please? Essie ‘Leading Lady’. Can a nail polish be more festive? It’s from Winter collection’12 and it’s a berry red full on glitter. Works great either for an ascent nail or all over 10 nails. Next up is China Glaze ‘Lorelei’s tiara’ – on my. Opaque glitter in 2 coats – silver with blue sparkles a.k.a. winter.
Following up the beauty trend – highlighting. Personally I love a bit of a glow on my face and being a person with normal-dry skin (especially in winter – super dry) this is just what doctor ordered. During the winter I go for something creamier since it looks for natural and doesn’t emphasis dry skin – MAC Paint Pot in Bare Study. I never use it as an eyeshadow base, but as a cheek bone treatment – wow – stays put all day, subtle shimmer and a healthy glow. I also pull out my eyeliners. The waterline is just asking for them – the darker the edgier and I kinda like it – Lancome Le Crayon Khol in grey.
Don’t forget about haircare. Kérastase Elixir Ultime. The new addition to my stash, but I’ve already kinda like it. Planning to do a separate post on my haircare.
What can be cozier than worm fuzzy socks? I love those ones – they keep me warm all day and night. Good book, hot coffee – perfect evening.
Diptyque diptyque diptyque… – tobacco & spice.
The spice I love all year round but especially during colder months: its taste makes drinks more sophisticated, its scent – home warmer and dessert more spicy – cinnamon.
Online shopping – the solution to Christmas shopping. Amazing deal, great sales and extra points to spend later, Plus some sites offer either reduced shipping or even free one with certain purchases. I’m hooked. Spotted the Space NK card? Yes, that’s what I’m talking about.
Good Christmas movie. Me likey a good movie. And probably
my favorite one, no, I cannot pick one. So it’s either Polar Express or How Grinch Stole Christmas.
For more cosiness you cannot go wrong with candles. I love to burn some scented ones or even unscented ones during the dinner – purely romantic atmosphere in the apartment. I prefer more musky / woody scents, I got so tired and exhausted of those floral and sweet scent, so those ones are good substitutions. And I may of order a new Diptyque Candle Set. Ooops.
What do you do to get into a festive mood?
