Lush - Think Pink!

During this time of year nothing is better than a hot bath to warm you up. :-) My mum got a Lush bath bomb and was so kind and gave it to me. Yay!

It gave the sweetest effect ever! Pink with little hearts, could it be any cuter??

For the scent, the only thing that came to mind to describe it was Fizzers. Do you know them? The scent could be better, but overall I loved this bath bomb.

Tomorrow, we're leaving for Edinburgh. I love Edinburgh, I can't wait to be back and this time over New Year!! How cool is that?! I'll try to vlog a bit if possible. :-)

My Christmas Eve and the Giveaway Winner!!

Hey guys,

Did you have a lovely Christmas? Have you been good this year?

I had a lovely evening with my family. It was great. We celebrated at our house, first time :-) I thought I share some pictures with you.

Can you spot Aristoteles?

He wasn't that happy about my parents dog visiting us. 

We made a buffet in our 50's kitchen.. We'll renovate it next year, but for now it would be too expensive. 

I got some awesome presents.

I got two vegan cookbooks and a book about the empress Elisabeth from my parents. The Tetris Jenga from my sister, a gorgeous Celine knock-off bag and tickets for The Lion King in Edinburgh where we'll be over New Year! :)

What did you get?

And now to the Giveaway winner! Random.org chose and here it is:

Congrats Lavinka!!

Don't be sad if you didn't win. I always feel bad that only one can win. :-( I cracked the 300 followers mark, so I'll have a new giveaway very soon!

Winter Wonderland

Today the sun is shinning, but I wanted to share the gorgeous foggy pictures I took two days ago while walking Kronos. It wasn't that easy, because Kronos didn't care one bit about his mum stopping all the time to pull out that square thing she also likes to put in front of his face. ;-)

It looked like somebody dropped a sugar pack. *gg*

When it comes to the landscape Retz truly is a treat, but I do miss Vienna sometimes. The shops or even crowds *gg*

Tomorrow is christmas, can you believe it?! Time is going by sooo fast. Don't forget to enter my giveaway. It's open until the 25th.

Have a great day!

Glossybox Double Feature

The holidays are finally here!!! My first holidays as a teacher. :-) And this means that I finally have time to catch up on my Glossyboxes.

A week ago I got the lovely Christmas box and before that the monthly box. So enjoy the overload on pictures. *gg*

Let's start with the Christmas box. :)

Let's go into detail. 

Alessandro's Christmas Time hand cream, it smells incredible. Like cinnamon and apples, I love it.

Nails inc. "Victoria" nail polish:

Babor Silky Eyeshadow Stick in "c'est bon"

Matrix Shampoo & Conditioner, I love their hair products!!

Moschino "Chic Petals" sample

and Renu's Lip and Eye Lift cream

Overall, I'm happy with this box. The nail polish, the hair products and the handcream are my favorites. They are great and especially the Matrix products are perfect for travelling.

For the other items, I'm not so convinced. A lip and eye cream? It kinda doesn't fit together for me and so far the shadow stick didn't last on my lids and the coverage isn't the best. I haven't tried the perfume sample so far, some of you know I get headaches from perfume. :-(

Let's take a look at the other box!

A full win! A box just as I like it.

Gliss Kur hair repair treatment. I've heard a lot of good stuff, so I can't wait to try it. :-)

Couvrance Mascara:

Emite eyeshadow in "Damis":

Misslyn nail polish in "blackberry":

The Body Shop Cranberry shower gel:

and Chloé perfume sample

This box is awesome. A good mix. You get everything, make up, body products and nail polish. What do you want more. I'm happy. :)

You can get your Glossybox here.

I hope you have a great weekend. Christmas is almost here!!
