The lip edit

 
I am quite a newbie at the whole lip liner, lipstick thing. But I finally decided to take the big jump into the unknown and expand my one lipstick collection. I only bought budget versions because I want to find out what type of colors I like and what suits me before I invest in something more expensive. After a few months of trying them here are my lip edit post.
 
Loréal color riche natural lipstick in "235" - This is my perfect nude. It´s not to brown and not to pinky toned and it´s the perfect everyday lipstick that works with whatever eye look your doing that day. The formula is pretty moisturizing and has great color payoff. I think it´s perfect for other newbies out there.
 
Maybelline color drama in "140 minimalist" - I love this color and I think it will be perfect for warmer weather ( but I have to admit that i´ve worn in in december) because it´s a bit more peachy pink and has a sparkly finish to it. I found that putting a lip balm on before you use it makes it easier to apply and it doesn´t feel as drying. The finish is matte and stays on your lips through out drinking and eating.
 
Isadora perfect lipliner in "36 ruby red" - This pen is very soft but quite easy to apply and it´s the perfect holiday red. I had it on under my red loreal lipstick on christmas eve and it looked amazing. I wouldn´t recomend it if your going out on a date for dinner because it doesn´t really stay on your lips.
 
Loreal collection exclusive in "blake" - I admitt it, I bought it because I am a huge Blake lively fan but the color is really pretty. The formula is creamy, which makes it a bit difficult to apply ( I would use a lip brush) but it´s stunning on and put you in the perfect "Blake moment". I wore it on christmas eve but took it off before dinner because I knew it wouldn´t stay on my lips and I didn´t want to eat meatballs with red stains on it. But if your going on something where you don´t have to eat, or drink much, it´s perfect.
 
Maybelline color drama in "310 berry much" - Have you noticed i´m really into these sticks. They have great color payoff, lasts forever and are matte. I have to force myself to not buy every single color. If you have some money to spare, buy one of these. The color is a deep purple, very buildable, with no shine or sparkle what so ever and you seriously have to scrub it of your lips at the end of the day. Great lip pen for you girls with a small budget.
 
Max factor color elixir gloss in "lustrous plum" - I thought I had to mention a lip gloss because I used to be a lip gloss lover. I was suprised of how much color you get from this one, a beautiful purple that goes perfect with the berry much lip pen or by it self. It doesn´t dry my lips out and it lasts for longer than I thought. I´m gonna try more shades from the color elixir line, they are just amazing.

the christmas edit

It´s almost christmas, the most wonderful time of the year. But I have found, now that i´m older, it´s hard to get into the christmas spirit. So I have spent some time trying to figure out a way to get at least a little holiday in my bones. Now I think I have a good few things I do or watch to feel festive and I wanted to share it with you guys!
 
 
Movies: There is nothing more festive than a great christmas movie and I have found six that I really enjoy. The holiday is my all time favorite, it´s funny and cute and not all that holiday-ish but I still like watching it this time of year at least four times. Cameron Diaz isn´t normally my favorite actress but I think she is so great in this one. Love actually is a classic. I don´t know, or want to know, how many times i´ve watched it in my lifetime. I adore the music and the actors are just perfect. Hugh grant and Colin Firth are as cute as ever. If you like funny love stories than this one is perfect for you. The polar express is just simply perfect for this time of year, it´s easy going and cute. I love me some animated movies.
A christmas carol is a little bit creepy for being a childrens movie, i think at least. But it catches your eye and you fall in love with the characters. The family stone is also a funny on, shocker, and you get to know every single one of the family members and Sarah jessica Parker plays her part perfectly.Sex and the city may not be what people think about when they think christmas, but first time I watched it was 3 years ago a few days before christmas so I find some festiveness from it. I love sex and the city in every form and I have watched so many times I can quote to much from it. If you haven´t watched it you´re crazy!
 
 
Snacks & drinks: Julmust is a swedish thing I guess but it´s so good! I have had it around christmas time for as long as I can remember. I can´t really explain what it tastes like but it´s like the christmas version of coke. Gingerbread cookies are a classic and can not be ignored. You can find them in every shape possible but they pretty much taste the same, spicy and delicous. I like to dip them in my drink it´s soo good. Saffron buns are probably another scandinavian thing but they are pretty easy to make and homemade is always better. We made ours dairy free this year and they are the best ones we have ever made. They are kind of addictive and they are just yummy. So if you´re from a country that doesn´t have these in store, just google saffron buns and make them at home.
 
 
Random stuff: I had to talk about a candle, I mean how can you not!? This one is gingerbread from ikea so it was cheap but still smells nice. I always love sweet smells over flower scents and during fall and winter time I burn them way to much. Another thing is my star lantern from Ikea. I saw it a month ago and had to have it and I use it even more than I thought I would! It´s really cosy and I don´t have to worry about my cat burning up.
The perks of being a wallflower is a very talked about book. I found it a little bit weird but I still liked it so I thought I would mention it because I think it screams winter even when it´s summer in the book. My last random thing is my cosy, and I mean really cosy, socks from hm. They where about £7 for two pair and I have used them every day for the past two months.
 
Songs: There is nothing better than christmas music when you´re trying to get into that festive mood. So I thought I would share my top 5 with you.
* Mistletoe by Justin bieber - my guilty pleasure.
* Last christmas by Wham! - old classic from childhood.
* All I want for christmas is you by Glee cast - New favorite, much better than the mariah original.
* This christmas by Chris Brown - Another one where I don´t like the person but love the song.
* Last christmas by Ariana Grande - A new one, not better than the original but it´s a bit different.
 
Youtube: My last christmas must have is youtube.I´m always quite obsessed with it but when december roles around I get even more obsessed. Because it´s vlogmas time! Which means a new video every single day from your favorite youtubers which is amazing and very holiday. I have a lot of people I watch, and some I don´t, but I´m gonna share my top 7 with you.
* Hellooctoberxo - I watch her videos like it´s a drug and when she said she was doing vlogmas I nearly jumped out of happiness.
* Thesammimariashow - O.M.G! I love her normal channel (beautycrush) but her vlogs are out of this world.
* Lily pebbles - You get to know the beauty behind lilypebbles.co.uk and see a more relaxed version of her.
* Carlyvlogs - Hilarious and weird family and friends. The gorgeous Carly lets you get a sneek peak at her life behind her blog and her job as a model.
* Amelia Liana - Has the cutest dog, Duke, and is funny and very relatable.
* Thegridmonster - Ingrid is not only a youtube star she is also gorgeous and very funny! I love her obsession with donuts, pandas (love!) and coffee.
* Meghan Rienks - Just got a nose job but is still funny and her parents are so cute, especially her dad. If you want to watch her in her normal state there is always last years vlogmas.

7 things: beauty confessions

 
~ I have blowdried my hair three times in my lifetime.
~ I use some kind of body butter every day. It´s kind of an addiction.
~ I have an ocd thing about my body butters or creams or anything in a pot really. The surface have to be smooth and flat. 
~ I take my make up off the second I walk through the door. Because even though I love putting it on my face, I hate having it there for longer than I need to.
~ I pick my nail polish off when i´m stressed or nervous. Bad, bad habbit!
~ I always curl my lashes before I go to bed. I have no idea why, it´s just something I do in my nightly routine.
~ I bite my nails when i´m stressed if í´m not wearing any nail polish.
