Merry Christmas (Eve)

Hi everyone,

I would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas!
What are you planning to do? I am going to have lots of friends over and have a few Christmas dinners. I do not like them very much, way too long and boring. What do you think?
Also, this is a small picture from my Christmastree I took from Instagram. What colours is your tree?

Have a good Christmas Time everyone, and stay safe!

xoxo

snowman oreos

Hello everyone!

So we are going to make oreo snowman lollipops.

1. Melt the white chocolate in a bowl.
2. Take the oreos apart, put a cake pop or other stick in the middle and put the oreo back together.
3. Dip the oreo on a stick in the molten chocolate until it is nicely covered.
4. Place the chocolate oreo on a plate with bakingpaper on it. Without it, you will completely mess up the chocolate since it will stick to a regular plate.
5. Place it in the Fridge for 5-10 minutes, or until dry.
6. Draw a snowman face on the white chocolate with molten dark chocolate.

And Finished! Super simple but delicious.

Review: Clinique redness solutions foundation

Hi beautiful friends,

So today I wanted to tell you about a new product I bought and have been loving recently. I bought it because acne was showing up again, and although it is not nearly as bad as it used to be it is still not something I like to show. So I bought the clinique redness solutions foundation which is specially designed for redness and it calms your skin. I bought it in the colour 1: Calming alabaster since I have a very pale skin during wintertime.

To be honest I was not very surprised with the result at first. I does provide you with a good coverage and the colour does not show up orange-like but it is very shiny. This annoyed me somewhat since it is $40 for a package of only 30 ml.
But I decided to go on with my matte powder and suddenly my day was perfect again. The foundation somehow mixes with the powder giving you a matte effect, without the look of a whole face of make-up. There's not 1 sign that shows you have foundation on your skin, other than the perfect face you get from it. This makes it very good to use for younger teens, or in schools where lots of make-up is prohibited.

Since it is a highway product, please, please, please do not feel obliged to buy it. If you have foundation that works just as good but is a lot cheaper I suggest using that.

I hope you all have a wonderful day ♥

Christmas decoration tips

With Christmas around the corner I wanted to give you some tips on how to decorate your room and make it look very cozy and ''christmassy''.

The most important thing you need in your room with Christmas are fairy lights and candles. Fairy lights in any shape/colour will work, but in my opinion the normal lights are the prettiest since they give an even glow without any weird colours such as blue and orange. 
Also, candles are important. What is Christmas without candles? I used some scented candles and some regular candles in special candle holders. The scented candles I now use are a regular vanilla candle, a candle from bath and body works in the scent Provence garden and a candle I got from france. I do not speak French so I have no clue what it is, but it smells really sweet and Christmas-like.

The next thing you need are some ribbons. I got some gold, white with gold stars, christmascolour-Burberry and some red. I tied them on places such as the cord of the fairy lights, on my closet, my door etc.

I hope you like the tips and merry Christmas!

Review: Rituals Mei Dao Body Butter

Hi everyone!

Today I wanted to share my thoughts with you about the Mei Dao body butter from rituals, since I have been enjoying it so much lately.

The body butter comes in a 200 ml packaging, which does not seem much but is a lot. The main ingredients used are Organic white lotus and Yi Yi Ren. I looked the last one up for you since at least I did not know what it was. Well, it appeared to be some sort of seed as you can also see on the picture.

The body butter smells really nice! ♥ It has some sort of light but fresh smell, yet very sweet. It is quite solid so you do not have lotion flying around everywhere which is Always a plus. Also, it gets into your skin very fast. After 1 minute it is not sticky anymore which is something I really enjoy.

The only con I can say about it that it is a little more on the high street end since it is around $30. But I can promise you all it will be worth every single penny you put into it!
