What I got for Christmas 2018

Hi Everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

First of all I hope you all had amazing holidays! May you have enjoyed the company with your loved ones and possibly some scrummy yummy food.

One of my favourite things this time of the year is to read and watch videos on ‘What I got for Christmas’. I have written several ones over the years and this year is no exception! Curious about my little loot continue reading!

Dusty Rose Coach bag ( Cute little bag, that the parents of my boyfriend gave me for Christmas)

Valentino by Mario Valentino bag Velvet Navy coloured bag. I was eyeballing a similar bag one day when shopping with my sis. So she generously got me this. It is such a stylish item and perfect for a night on the town.

Ikea gift card ( I am still in need of buying items for my house and Ikea has nice and convenient things for that purpose) This was gifted by my parents. Thanks mom and dad!

Amazon gift card ( Always useful and I can get whatever I want) Gifted by my aunt and uncle.

La Vie Est Belle Absolu Perfume ( Oh My ! The first time I smelled this perfume I was in love! My lovely Boyfriend remembered that I love this perfume and made a photo when I showed him this perfume)

Philips mixer & Philips Blender/ Chopping Machine ( The ideal tools for the Lazy Working Girl! I am the worse in chopping it is so borring and I really dislike chopping an onion) Both pressies were give by my aunty S .

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 € 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!

Thumbs Luxury gift Idea: Estee Lauder Blockbuster Gift Set

Thumbs Luxury gift Idea:  Estee Lauder Blockbuster Gift Set

Hi Everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

Eventhough I am quite late with publishing a gift idea post, I thought it would be fun to do so. For this first gift idea post I opted for quite a lux gift idea. Yes you are right it is the Estee Lauder Blockbuster Set . This 12 piece set contains a mix of beauty and skin care goodies,  and would be a great gift for either the beauty or skin care lover. Curious about what this set contains continue reading!

The set contains the following:

3 Palettes

Pure Color Envy Eye and Cheek Palette – Nudes

Pure Color Envy Eye and Cheek Palette Glow

Pure Color Envy Eye and Cheek Palette Glam

3 Lipsticks

Pure Color Envy 220 Powerful

Pure Color Envy 420 Rebellious Rose

Pure Color Envy 340 Envious

Pure Color Envy Sculpting Gloss

Sumptious Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara

Gentle Eye Make up Remover (suitable for all skin types)

Advanced Night Repair ( Synchronized Recovery Complex II For all skin types

This gift set retails for € 117 and has a total value of € 300,- . If you have the budget to buy this, I think this is a total steal and would be worth your money. The Night Repair Serum alone has a value of € 76.20! That is already half the value of this set. Also this set comes in a very cute beauty case which you can reuse afterwards.

You can go different directions with this set. You could gift this as one big gift or split this set up to use the items for stocking stuffers.

Would you not love to receive this as a gift? What are your recommendations for a lux gift? Please share and leave a comment!

Until next post friends!

My first Charlotte Tilbury Haul

My first Charlotte Tilbury Haul

Hi everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

It has been quite some time since I posted, due to life craziness catching up on me. Maybe I will share some of that craziness on a later date.

Anyhow as the title suggests, I had my first encounter with Charlotte Tilbury make-up.

For quite a few years I have been lusting to try some products and some weeks ago, my sis and I ventured into the Bijenkorf to the Charlotte Tilbury counter. Prior to going there, I knew I would not leave the store without spending some money.

Firstly they market the products so Well. Lovely gold, lush and clean packaging. Amazing displayes of their lipsticks,blushes foundation and skin care were surounding me on my left and right side. And we were greeted by very friendly and helpful staff.

Due to the miracle of YouTube, I could not resist trying out the legendary pillow talk lip liner and lipstick. After trying this I could not resist putting this in my shopping cart.

The lipstick and liner gildes on ever so smoothly. And eventhough a Matt finish not drying on the lips.

My 3rd item I opted for was the colour chameleon in Amber Haze. This is such a beautiful one stop product. Just swoosh on the lids and under the eyes and you have a stunning look.

After a further browse I got persuaded into buying the limited Magical mini brush set. The case is so feminine with the rose gold and sparkles. A great little gift to give for Christmas and useful for travel . The set contains the following:

  1. Blusher Brush
  2. Eye Blender Brush
  3. Lipstick Brush
  4. Eye Smudger Brush

I have not yet had the opportunity to try everything to the fullest, but can confirm I enjoyed the lipstick and liner. My next purchase might be the lipstick Glaston Berry. A beautiful Berry colour.

Thank you for taking your time spent reading my stories on the internet and have a lovely week

Until next time friends!

Thumb’s Christmas Nails ( Essie’s Really Red)

Thumb’s Christmas Nails ( Essie’s Really Red)

‘Tis the season to be jolly and of course my nails need to be matching as well. For my Christmas nails I opted for Essie’s Really Red nail polish. I received this polish as free gift of purchase and I am so happy with it.

When I have been wearing this polish, people have asked me if I had my nails done or which polish it was. It is so beautiful. I really cannot fault this polish!  I Love the color, the longevity and the minimal chipping. Just all Thumbs up for me!

What also could be fun is to do use some glitter polish on some of the nails to make it more festive. I would opt for a silver of gold polish in this case.

Please check out my other posts if you enjoyed reading this one .

Happy holidays guys and hope to see you back soon!

Until next post friends!

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?
