Blogmas 2016- The Christmas tag

Hey guys!

I enjoy reading and watching the ‘tag’ type posts, so I thought why not do a Christmas themes one.


So let’s get started:

  1. Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?
    In my family, we do the presents on both days, as we open presents on the 24th after dinner, and then the 25th at relatives houses. Due to this, J usually lets me open one or two little stocking fillers on the 24th.
  2. Is your Christmas tree real or fake?
    It is fake however, we ALWAYS had a real tree in Hungary. Fake trees were not very popular really. I love real trees, but at the moment it is fake.
  3. What is your favourite Christmas film?
    I have made a WHOLE post about my favourite Christmas movies, please check them out here.
  4. Where do you usually spend your holiday?
    By the side of my family. I will spend Christmas with J’s family this year and go home and repeat Christmas with my family in January. I cannot wait as I have not been home for 2+ years. (I have my parents visiting me)
  5. What is your favourite Christmas song?
    OH NO! You all will think I am absolutely crazy, as I am the kind who doesn’t really like Christmas music. My one and only all time favourite song is ‘The Pogues- Fairytale of New York’- I love it and I am happy to listen to it all day. This one song only. Sorry guys
  6. What is your all-time favourite holiday food/sweet treat?
    I love everything about Christmas food, but mums Tiramisu is my favourite- you can read the recipe here.
  7. Be honest: do you like giving gifts or receiving gifts better?
    Giving for sure! I love watching peoples face when they open my presents. Seeing my loved ones happy means the world to me.
  8. Do you make New Years’ resolutions? Do you stick to them?
    I have always made a resolution and NEVER kept up with it. This year I am going to make more realistic plans, such as sticking to my SlimminWorld diet and adding more exercise into my daily routine. I want to get fit and more healthy by the end of 2017 as I am a massive foodie couch potato. I need to get a bit more active really.
  9. You have been granted one Christmas wish…what will it be?
    To be able to spend Christmas together with mine and J’s family so we don’t have to be apart from either of them.
  10. Have you ever had a white Christmas?
    Of course, many of times. I am Hungarian so it snowed most years. I loved it until I realised how much cleaning it involves and how it affects your driving. I like it if I am sitting by the fire drinking a hot chocolate, but certainly not if I am stuck on a motorway or if my flight is delayed.
  11. Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer?
    Absolutely not. Rudolf, Comet, :O
  12. Are you a pro-present wrapper, or do you fail miserably?
    REALLY miserable. I cannot wrap even a box properly. I get really frustrated so I make sure it has bows, tags, ribbon, names and all other stuff on the wrapper so you can’t actually see my sellotape overload. I like getting big sacks, bags or boxes to put my presents into, so my wrapping is covered up

Let me know if you do a Christmas tag as I would love to read yours.

Glossybox November 2016

Hey guys!

I can’t believe how quick the months go by! It’s Glossybox time again 🙂 And it’s nearly Christmas too.

So let’s see what this little pink box got in store for us this November.


1.  Ruby Professional– Large tapered Blending Brush- This is a perfect addition to my makeup brush collection. Currently, I have 2 blending brushes, however, none of which are this soft. This brush is the softest one I have had the chance to feel/use. I am excited to create some real badass smokey eyes with this little gem. This retails for €8, which is relatively fair these days. Not the most expensive and not the cheapest however I can tell already that this will be my favourite blending brush.

2.111 Skin– Bio Cellulose Facial Treatment Mask- I am a big fan of sheet masks, and face masks so I am buzzing about this one. If you head over to my Instagram you can see me trying out another gel face mask not that long ago. I looked rather silly, and J thought I was going mad. But it worked and my skin felt amazing. So I am really looking forward to giving my skin some extra loving in this cold winter. This is normally priced £20 which for one mask may seem crazy, but I bet it makes my skin feel like a million dollars. Gotta wait and see…

3. De Bruyere Beaute– Jumbo Eye Pencil in Bubble 07. This is such a gorgeous shade for winter. I love deep khaki and browns, and the gold tone of it just lovely. Apparently, this product was featured in Victoria Beckham’s fashion show. If it’s good enough for the models I am sure my eyes will have no problem giving this a go. I swatched the pencil, and it is super pigmented, however, it blends out really easily. I am definitely adding this to my collection with pride. Might also be a nice bronzer/highlight as well during the winter. Hmmm.. This gem is €15 and will be a great addition to ladies and gents who like an easy eyeshadow on a busy morning.

4.Now ,this next product I can’t really comment about. I am not a false eyelash wearer as I wear glasses ad even if I just use too much mascara, it touched my lenses. (please tell me I am not the only one!!) However, these do look really pretty and I do have a few other lashes in my makeup stash too. I will definitely give them a go once I figure out how to apply lashes. Bare with me I am no MUA. Anyhow, this is the Kiss- Looks so natural lashes that you can pick up in your local Superdrug. It’s only £4.95 as well and I believe these can be used over and over again so it really is not expensive. (They are on sale currently for JUST £3.32- bargain)

5.Wilkinson Sword- Raspberry Rain razors– I’d be lying if I’d say I wasn’t excited to see this. I HATE hair- it’s not my fetish for sure. TMI Fil.. .Anyways, I was excited as I do really like Wilkinsons. I’m sure everyone knows that lady razors SUCK and most of us girls use men razors. Saying that, I love the Quattro range so yeah, I like this and it’s a great shout as it’s always useful to have. May I add they actually smell really good? probably not an important aspect, but they smell LOVELY. It’s on sale on Superdrug’s website so instead of £5.99 it is only £2.97. Another bargain for you for the Christmas party.

Last but not least we also got a cheeky piece of Raffaello. It is one of my favourites, and I like it so much better than Ferrero Rochers. We used to always get one from Daddy (by one I mean one big box) for women’s day so yeah, this gone done as a treat.

That is it for this month. I really am impressed with the box and I know all (maybe not the lashes) will be used up fairly quickly. I love Glossybox as it gives me great ideas for new products, and also gift ideas for Christmas.

Thanks for reading, as always:
