5 favourites – December

I can’t believe that December has already come to an end. As I mentioned last month December is my favourite month, and this December was another great one. I was in a Christmas mood all through the past month until a few days ago. Now I’m studying for my exams, and that’s pretty much all January is going to be about; exams! But first I’m going to celebrate the new year, and I hope you’re all going to have an awesome night. But first, here’s some of my favourite things from the lovely month of December.

L’Oréal Lumi Magique Pure Light primer: This primer gives you the most gorgeous glowy skin, and I’ve been loving glowy skin this past month, probably because I find it extra appropriate for Christmas time.

Wet n Wild Color Icon eye shadow palette in Comfort Zone: As I mentioned here, I’d been wanting to try out Wet n Wild eye shadows for such a long time, and I’ve been wanting this palette in particular, and I’m not dissappointed. The quality is amazing considered the price, and I’m especially loving the green shades.

McBusted bog

McBusted – The Story of the Worlds Biggest Supergroup (book): I’m not big on reading, unless the book is about one of my favourite bands. I got the book on my gift Advent calendar, and I was hooked from the very first page. I haven’t finished the book yet, because I’ve been studying for my exams and playing a certain computer game in my spare time, but I’m really looking forward to reading the last pages.

The Sims 4 Get Together

The Sims 4 Get Together (computer game): For my birthday in August I got The Sims 4 base game and the Get To Work expansion pack, and one of the things I wished for the most this Christmas was the new Get Together expansion pack, and I was lucky enough to get it. I just wanna play The Sims 4 all the time, but unfortunately I have some exams to study for which is just a bit more important than playing The Sims:)

Christmas – Michael Bublé (album): I love Christmas music and I love Michael Bublé, and again this year I’ve listened to his Christmas album countless times. Among my favourites are It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas, Holly Jolly Christmas, Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas, and I’ll Be Home For Christmas.

Cyber Monday haul

On Cyber Monday I went onto the Danish online beauty store Cocopanda.dk to buy a Christmas present for my youngest sister, and there were so many good deals, so I ended up buying a couple of things for myself. I’ve been wanting to try out Wet n Wild eye shadows for such a long time, and I love this Comfort Zone palette. I also picked up a couple more NYX products, and some Ardell half lashes, because I want to play around with lashes a bit more. And of course I had to pick up a back up of my beloved Real Techniques sponge.

Christmas lips and glow

Merry Christmas! I hope you’re all having a wonderful time. In Denmark we celebrate Christmas on the 24th, so that’s why I didn’t blog yesterday. I spend yesterday with my family, and I had a lovely time. Here’s a little sneak peek of my Christmas outfit. I’ll post the full outfit and make-up look soon.

Christmas nails

Another nail post already! So unlike me. Anyhow, I thought I would show you my Christmas nails. On my gift Advent calendar on December 20 I got a set of three L’Oréal nail polishes and I’ve used two of them for this look, 404 Scarlet Vamp and Gold Leaf top coat. I’m very impressed by the Gold Leaf top coat; I think it looks beautiful on top of the red nail polish.

Blue Christmas

Here’s the make-up I wore Wednesday December 2. Another blue eye look that I really like. Not the most Christmassy look (it actually reminds of summer), but I felt like wearing bright colours that day.
