** GIVEAWAY (rules and entry form): Blogmas 2019: My 1st GIVEAWAY

How has the year already passed? I sound like a broken record every year, but I feel like there's so much I could have done during the year so the end now seems so weird and almost unexpected. Is the life now really faster then it used to be? I wonder how you feel about it...

Each year I have more and more products in this box. I think I'll need a bigger box for these posts. If you're interested in any of the previous posts on this topic, you can find them in my 'Empties' category (Empties | 2016, Empties | 2017 and Empties | 2018).

Blogmas 2019: Make this Christmas better for everyone

** GIVEAWAY (rules and entry form): Blogmas 2019: My 1st GIVEAWAY

Walking around these past days during December made me think about other people and how little acts of kindness could really make the difference. Even if you don't think of directly helping other people, there's always something you can do to make things easier for other people too.


I'm also trying to make these holidays better for someone so I'm hosting my first giveaway on this blog. Small things like this can brighten someone's day so I hope you'll realize what you can do to put smile on someone's face. Or, at least, not annoy them.

Blogmas 2019: December to-do list

** GIVEAWAY (rules and entry form): Blogmas 2019: My 1st GIVEAWAY

In my last post I wrote down one kind of wish list, Christmas presents wish list. But, more importantly, I love this list. I'm more for memories and experiences than for presents when it comes to December. I would like to see it all and do it all.

However, working full-time every single day until Christmas (yes, weekends too, for 20+ days) makes this really hard for me. I decided to put together a list to see how many stuff I can actually get done in this time. So let's see what I have planned so far.

Blogmas 2019: My Christmas wishlist

** GIVEAWAY (rules and entry form): Blogmas 2019: My 1st GIVEAWAY

Have I mentioned before that we have this big tradition with presents each year? This extends to all presents, for birthdays and all other occasions, but it becomes really intense during Christmas. We can give out hints, but we never say we actually want something for Christmas and the person buying the present has to be really careful in planning it out and storing it somewhere. We can not know what we got until the Christmas morning.


I absolutely love that my family does it like that because it keeps the magic of Santa present. It's more heart-warming and special to get a surprise. I also think it's really rude to ask for a certain present because you should be happy enough to even get anything. Stay humble.

Blogmas 2019: My 1st GIVEAWAY

** Blogmas posts on this blog: click here
Hello everybody! December has started; so did the Blogmas. For us bloggers it's super stressful time because people who do proper Blogmas have to come up with ideas for 25-30 days. It's not easy. However, I modified it a bit so you'll get 2 posts a week from me...

For this one I just wanted to announce my first ever giveaway on this blog. Each day I'll be opening one door of a beauty advent calendar and, at the end of it, one of you will get all the items.
I've been posting what I got each day on my Twitter and I'll continue to do so so follow me there to see what you can get. I also added few bits that I'll reveal on Christmas day.

I've also been posting rules, but I think this will be way easier to follow.

  • follow me on Twitter
  • Tweet about the giveaway (you can also like and RT my posts for extra entries)
  • read this blog and leave comments on whatever you like (except on this post!!)
  • follow me on Instagram (only if you like the content because I don't do follow-4-follow)

a Rafflecopter giveaway

That's all folks! Good luck!

If you want, you can give me ideas for future posts in the comments :)

** Giveaway is opened until 31st of December, 12 a.m. CET.

Blogmas 2019: DIY wreaths

** On a personal note 4 weeks ago: My sleeping problems
** On a personal note 3 weeks ago: Storytime: I was embarrassed to talk to my brother
** On a personal note 2 weeks ago: My body image journey - holding it in (part 2)

I love it how I always say I'm creative person, but my creativity is mostly hidden. Until Christmas arrives. December is my time to shine and, as last few years, I decided to make some easy DIYs to fit this year's theme.

I already shared some DIY wreaths last year in my post Blogmas 2018: Christmas wreaths DIY and some Christmas ornaments in my post Blogmas 2017: DIY Christmas ornaments. I know this is a self-promotion, but I would highly recommend checking these two posts if you need more ideas or want to see my progress over the years.
