Thumbs Mid Price Gift Idea : Benefit B.right! Delights

Thumbs Mid Price Gift Idea : Benefit B.right! Delights

Hi Everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

This very last minute gift idea is for anyone who likes skin care, a little beauty, Benefit Products and love anything particular cute.

When I saw these Benefit giftsets in the stores I could not resist picking this up as they contain some Benefit classics. I picked this set up from Douglas for ‚ā¨ 44.99. Which I thought was not a bad price for the products you get. This set comes in a cute cake shaped tin and contains four products.

The set contains the following:

50 ML Instant Comeback Facial Serum

Total Moisture Facial Cream full size

Browvo! Conditioning Primer

It’s Potent Brightening Eye Cream.

This has been the first time I have been using Benefit skin care and I must say they feel pretty good on the skin.

Benefit had a lot of cute sets this year some little ones and the big sets. Varying from sets with more makeup items and some more with skincare.

I hope everybody found this last minute gift useful and I wish you all great holidays!

Until next post friends!

What I got for Christmas 2017

What I got for Christmas 2017

Hi everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

I might be a little late posting this post ,but I really wanted to share what I got for Christmas 2017. I really love reading or seeing what people got for their Christmases, birthdays etc. Therefore I could not resist writing this post. I really got spoiled and received a lot of things that I asked for from Santa.

Curious about what I received? Continue reading and enjoy!

IKEA Gift Card 

I really can’t wait to start spending this Gift Card as I have seen a lot of things I want and need from IKEA.

Lush Twilight Shower Gel

In a previous post I have stated  my love for this shower gel. And as Lush only brings this out around the Christmas period I really wanted a backup!

Scarf

A navy blue Sea Salt Infinity Scarf. I love scarves and as it is going to get nippy coming week, this will be very useful.

Food Hamper 

Always useful! Who does not love a hamper full of Christmas snacks. This is love!

Amazon Gift Card

Love Amazon so this will come to use. I am sure I will spend it in a second.

Nespresso Innisia Coffee machine

Yeeh I finally have a George! Now I finally can be an adult and serve decent coffee when I have visitors. Whoop Whoop!

Coffee for the machine

Ofcourse George needs coffee capsules to make coffee. So I received 3 limited editions coffee capsules from Nespresso.

Philps Foam maker

To make the perfect Latte, I needed a Foam maker! And boy does this work. It is so satisfactory to see that troth created and tastes so good.

Prague Hat

Something to keep my head and ears warm when we get hit again by King Winter.

Continuing on my curiosity, what did you receive for Christmas? Pleas feel free and share what you received! If you are interested what I received last year? Please click here and continue reading.

Until next post friends!

Thumbs November Favorites

Thumbs November Favorites

Hi everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

Another month has past and we have arrived to the last and most festive month of the year, December! That means it is time to share some of my November favorites! Envision a Drum roll in the background when you start reading this post and lets get through these faves ūüėÉ!

Favorites

Beauty Blender – I really  underestimated the power of the real Beauty Blender. Applying foundation with a Blender takes away so much hastle. Plus the overall skin finish looks so much better than when I apply foundation with a brush!

Lush Twilight Shower Gel – If you love the Twilight Bath Bomb you will love this! This is a great alternative if you don’t have a bath to enjoy. Please Lush! Bring this product  out all year.

Lush Sleepy Body Lotion – Another Lush product in the mix. This pairs so well with the Twilight Shower Gel. Now I only had the sample of this product, however I did experience a great nights rest. So I am really hoping Santa is getting this for me for ChristmasūüėČ.

MAC Soft and Gentle Highlighter – A cult favorite from MAC. But yeah just have been levitating to this highlighter of late. It just gives a great sheen to the skin.

MAC Prepp and Prime fixing spray – Just repurchased this one at the airport, as I could not live without this product. Your makeup does looks better and stays on longer.

Loreal Matt Lip Laquer in 102 – I just love this red colour and when I wear this lippy I get a lot of compliments from friends and family.  Currently this is one of my go to lip products.

Douglass Light as Air Optimal Skin Hydration  Mask –  If you want your face feeling as soft as a baby butt, you really need to try this product. Your face feels so hydrated after application.  

Vaess Xenos – I just love this Vaess it is sturdy, and  has a beautifull minty green colour. Also this vaess compliments flowers so well.

Faux Christmas flowers Xenos – These Roses give such a cozy / wintery feel in the house. Just love the fake snow on them. Also the silver branches just compliment them so well.

Christmas Ornaments – I bought these Cinderella Ornaments in October in a garden center. They are a bit OTT but I really like them and they go very well in my Christmas  Trea.

Unfavorite

Superdrug nose strip. The only question I have after using his product is: Does this work for anyone ? This nose strip did not do anything for me. I really took my Sherlock Holmes magnifying glass to try some sort of evidence that stuff got removed from my nose. However this was not the case. Really disappointed with the outcome of this product.

As it is now December I am not sure I will write a December favorites post. However this might be replaced  by the yearly faves. Nevertheless I hope you enjoyed reading this post and as always feel free to leave a commentūüėÄ.

Until next post friends

24 Days of Advent Calendar Fun ( Day 8 )

24 Days of Advent Calendar Fun ( Day 8 )

Hi everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

It is day 8 of my Calendar opening, and we are nearly half way through the count down to Christmas! Yippie. But enough of sentimental s and lets open the windows shall we?

Body Shop

It looks like a full bar of coconut soap. Very generous. Usually I like coconut smelling things however this one seems very in the face. I cannot fully judge this product yet, but I will  keep you posted.

day-8

HEMA

A golden star ring. OMG this matches so well with the star necklace I received a couple of days before. Great combi. Must say, for today HEMA wins!

24 Days of Advent Calendar Fun ( Day 7 )

24 Days of Advent Calendar Fun ( Day 7 )

Hi Everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

It is time to open the windows in my Advent Calendars for Day 7. Are you all not very exited! I am! Let’s get started and hope that there are some goodies to collect.

Body Shop

Today there was a little box to be found in the window and it had a little sharpener in it. A couple of days I was looking for this little tool and now I have one. Very good!

HEMA

In window number 7 of the HEMA calendar I found a set of golden earrings with a little stud in it. I am still not sure what they are supposed to be? Presents? Ribbons? Hmmm! I have to see this one is not exciting me to much, it is nice but not loving it.

I hope you all enjoyed this post and hope to see you back soon for some more calendar fun.

24 Days of Advent Calendar Fun ( Day 6 )


Hi Everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

It is time to open Day 6 of my Advent Calendars. I must say I already enjoyed opening day 1 to 5 and cannot wait to see what today has in store. Lets have a look shall we?

HEMA

Look how cute these gold love earrings. Cannot wait to wear these!.

BodyShop

Yeeh the first make up piece from the Body Shop in the Calendar. Can I get a whoop whoop!  It is the lip liner  in Pink Clover. It looks like this lip liner would work beautifully with MAC Velvet Teddy. I already noticed that this liner feels really soft and creamy, and dare I say it feels more creamier than some liners from MAC?

24 Days of Advent Calendar Fun ( Day 1,2,3,4 and 5)

24 Days of Advent Calendar Fun ( Day 1,2,3,4 and 5)

Hi Everybody,dear readers and loyal subbies,

Yeeh bonus post!

So this year I thought it would be fun to open some advent calendars for Christmas! I opted for a jewelry calendar from the HEMA and an epic one from the Body Shop. Looking at the packaging Body Shop wins it for me. But to be honest that makes sense as the prices differ quite a lot. The Hema one retails for 17 euros and the Body Shop one is 75 euros. However I got mine for a cheeking 50 euros! Don’t know if that was a special offer for a day, but I just could not resist it.

Because I missed the first 5 days, I have consolidated all 5 days in one blog post. ¬†I hope you enjoy reading it. ¬†If you don’t want any spoilers than ofcourse stop reading.

Body Shop 

Day One Spiced Apple Shower Gel

Day Two A Loofah

Day Three Vitamine E Moisture Cream

Day Four Frosted Berrie Body Lotion

Day Five Facial Cleansing Sponge

HEMA 

Day 1 Charm Bracelet ( I have no idea how to describe the charm looks cute though! )

Day 2  Gold Necklace with leave pendant

Day 3 Studded earrings ( Handy)

Day 4 Gold Necklace with a star ( Super Cute )

Day Five a Charm Bracelet with a pearl

I hope you enjoyed reading this post and hope to see you back soon for discovering what is in store for day 6 of Advent Calendar fun!

Until next post friends!

Thumbs Empties (A lot of empties! )

Thumbs Empties (A lot of empties! )

Hi everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

Due to the moving, I had postponed some posts even the empties ones. So in the end, a week before I moved, I had collected a lot of empties. Trust me a lot ! To be honest I was quite impressed by the amount. Anyhow without further a do, please check out my Thumbs Empties.

all-empties

Nailcare

I am kinda bummed out that I did not write down the names of the polishes, but my faves would be the Essie, The Tanya burr,  The OPI and the Sally Hansen gel top coat ones . The other polishes I would not repurchase. The reason I had to get rid of most polishes was because the product got to tacky and therefor they were not workable anymore. For the Essie polish I even manisshed to have the lid jammed because of leaking polish. Such a waste errrrggg!

Skin care 

The things I would want to highlight for skincare would be the Garnier Micellar water with oil in it. Boy it smells so good and the L’oreal extraordinary oil day and night cream. Those creams are true winners for me.

Body care

As usual my faves are in there, such as  Sanex and Soap and Glory shower products. I must say I was pleasantly surprised by the Victoria Secret Shower Gel. It was gorgeous and the bathroom smelled so nice after use. However really have to watch the use of this product as there is a lot of perfume in it.

Hair care

To be honest the hair care was not that good these last months except the L’oreal hairspray and the Garnier shampoo. Basically the rest was quite crappy!

I hope you all enjoyed this very  very messy blog post. Please like or subscribe or follow me via BlogLovin or Twitter.

Until the next post friends!

Sharing a little William Wordsworth


Hi everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

Somehow I have been really loving poetry lately. So when I heard and read this beautiful poem, I just thought I had to share this with you . In my opinion these magic words from William Wordsworth should not be lost. I did not write down all the verses of this poem, but listed my two favorite verses of this poem. I hope you all enjoy!

INTIMATIONS OF IMMORTALITY FROM RECOLLECTIONS OF EARLY CHILDHOOD by William Wordsworth

THERE was a time when meadow, grove, and stream,
The earth, and every common sight,
To me did seem
Apparelled in celestial light,
The glory and the freshness of a dream.
It is not now as it hath been of yore;–
Turn wheresoe’er I may,
By night or day,
The things which I have seen I now can see no more.

But there’s a Tree, of many, one,
A single Field which I have looked upon,
Both of them speak of something that is gone:
The Pansy at my feet
Doth the same tale repeat:
Whither is fled the visionary gleam?
Where is it now, the glory and the dream?

Even though some might find this poem misplaced, I hope some enjoyed reading these 2 verses of William Wordsworth’s :

INTIMATIONS OF IMMORTALITY FROM RECOLLECTIONS OF EARLY CHILDHOOD

Until next post friends!

Thumbs June Favorites

Thumbs June Favorites

Hi everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

June faves

June has passed and gone and it is time for ¬†Thumbs June Favorites. I must say June did not give me a lot of new faves , but the things I found were pretty sweet. Don’t get me wrong I am still loving a lot of the same things from last month. Such as¬†¬†my Make up Revolution high lighter in golden lights and the Make up Revolution Bronzer Palette. So if you want to read ¬†about Mays favorites click here. But for this month lets get this post started.

Makeup

  • MAC Velvet Teddy – What can I say, it is just a beautiful nude color and you can just wear this color any time. Timeless and classic!

Lifestyle 

  • Pathe unlimited card – ¬†If you like going to the cinema and you go often, then this ¬†might be something for you ( just for Dutch peeps ) ! ¬† I pay 19 euros a month, ¬†and pay 1.5o extra if I want to see the film in 3D .¬†Since I subscribed to Pathe Unlimited I sometimes go 4 times a week to the Cinema. This card is such good value for money. Also you get 10% ¬†discount on drinks and snacks in the cinema.
  • Film Me before you – Such a good film! It had a good story line ¬†even though it was very ¬†sad ¬†at some times, but the film also contained ¬†a lot of humor. I really want to read the book now. Anyone read the book?
  • Film Deadpool – If you like Marvel Comics, most likely you will like this one. This film was soooo funny. Maybe a little rude at some time but it suited the film. Also I thought the soundtrack was BOM !
  • Penny Dreadfull- Best season ever! Unfortunately and sadly the last season. ¬†I sort of had the feeling how this show would end and I was correct. Still it was such a good season with such a good story line. I have already re-watched ¬†several episode I just can’t get enough. ¬†If you are interested you can view the trailer below.Trailer Penny Dreadful season 3

Fashion

  • Dresses – I just have been into dresses lately. To be honest I look a lot better in dresses. My figure just looks better ¬†in a dress. and it is summer now so it is nice to wear. Also I am incorporating a lot of bright color which makes my skin look more alive and not so deadly.

I hope you all liked this post.  For more updates follow me via Bloglovin or Twitter. And as always feel free leave to leave a comment.
