Blogmas 2017: 50 thoughts I have during December

I have the same thoughts every December. Whenever I feel Christmas is approaching, it's like the time stops, the year freezes and everything revolves around Christmas. OK, I may be crazy, but I honestly live for Christmas time. I love it. However, there are always the same stuff going on. Now that I've seen this for few years in a row, I'm ready to write them down.
Also, this is my first "X thoughts about something" and I think I'll love this.

Blogmas 2017: The Mystery Blogger Award

I've said this before, I'll say it again - I love tags. However, I'm doing my first Blogmas ever and I did not expect to do random tags. And I already did one which I created and you can read Christmas tag if you're interested. Reading these new questions, I saw there are some Christmas related and also, the title is 'The Mystery Blogger' which I casually translated as 'The Secret Santa' (it's the same, right?).

Blogmas 2017: 20 holiday outfits

I love fashion, I love putting together outfits and I love holidays. So this time of the year is very special in terms of my clothing and my style. I honestly loved creating these looks. Although I wanted to create all glamorous outfits, I know we don't all celebrate Christmas or New Year in some fancy place. Some of us have no opportunity and some just don't want to. This is why I included some regular holiday outfits you can rock anytime.
Honestly, I hope I'll be able to wear some fancy outfit this year, but I won't get my hopes too high. Until I figure that out, I created 20 looks for this holiday season.

Blogmas 2017: DIY Christmas ornaments

As I said multiple times, I consider myself a creative person. I also live for Christmas. This can only mean one thing - DIYs! I know DIYs can be more expensive than the done thing and they're messy and after all hours put in them, they can still turn out bad or not as you imagined them.
I'm not saying my DIYs are cheaper, but I enjoyed doing them. Also, I will most likely keep them all for next years so it's not a huge waste of money.

Blogmas 2017: 10 things I love & hate about winter & Christmas time!

OK, Blogmas is actually pulling out some lifestyle posts here. I like it. I already announced that I freaking love Christmas. However, I've been saying since forever that I hate fall and winter. Since I started blogging, my views on these things has changed a bit. Seeing how people make the most out of winter and fall on blogs and Instagram accounts made me try to enjoy at least some bits of these seasons.
Not to lie, I live for Christmas. This Blogmas should prove it. But my family and I actually don't decorate the house until Christmas Eve so we don't have few months of Christmas like some people. And I love it like that. For me Christmas time starts with the start of December, but it shows in Christmas songs and the fact that the whole city is decorated.

Blogmas 2017: Gift guide (Christmas edition?)

I love buying presents. I would probably buy a gift for a random person on the street if I heard they said they want something. I unfortunately don't have money to buy you all presents, but I hope I can help you pick some.
I'm going to cover most of areas and price ranges so I really hope you'll find something or get some idea by reading this. Also, if you're not celebrating Christmas, I'm sure you have other occasions to give presents.

Blogmas 2017: Christmas tag

We'll start this Blogmas with getting to know each other's favorite stuff and Christmas traditions. I already said I love tags. I love reading them and answering them. But if I want a new one, I'll just make one up. And here I am.
I'm sure there's a bunch of Christmas tags out there, but I didn't search for any nor did I read any in near past so these are all just random questions that popped to my head.

Intro to Blogmas

I don't write many info posts, but I've written two in such a short time period. What's happening? Anyway, this year I'm announcing something new on my blog.
It was so much fun to make this picture!
This year, I'll do Blogmas. This is not new, but I've never done it. I know the point of Blogmas should be posting each day with short posts of all kinds, preferably with Christmas theme. Or so I've seen so far.

Nabla eyeshadows

Some of my friends and blogging gals (aka Maria J.) know that I really wanted to try ColourPop eyeshadows. However, there were some problems with ordering so I searched for another option. I stumbled upon these Nabla eyeshadows and I immediately ordered 4 of them with their own palette.
Top left - Paprika, top right - Farenheit, bottom left - Ludwig, bottom right - Daphne No. 2
I chose all similar colors because I really wanted and needed some burgundy colors, reds and oranges. As you can see, I bought 2 mattes and 2 shimmer eyeshadows.

Winter skin care routine

I don't think I've ever written a skin care routine. I don't write these because I change it a lot and I'm not consistent with products I use. However, winter is always a problematic season for all skin types and we need to pay extra attention to our skin. As I mentioned I'm not good with 'routines', I'll write down some products I really like during this season and some tips I have to maintain a good skin care.
I also read this moisturizer guide "The best face moisturizer"* that emphasizes the importance of using one. They also explain everything you need and why you need it in a moisturizer and also what do you need for each skin type. What I love the most is how they actually did a contest between more than 200 moisturizers so pick the number one for day and night time and also gave some other options (find out which ones won the battle in the given link).
