Hi everyone, It’s a new year, 2021, and one of my goals is that I will blog once a week! However, I do not wish to set an upload date for now, as I do… More
Yes you might be getting two blog posts today, but I finished my online class, ate, washed up and here I am back on the sofa, facing the christmas tree and its beauty; and writing up this post. Tomorrow we also have a public holiday here in Malta, so I can rest up a little. But also will be doing some christmas shopping, still have some people to cheer!
And yes today’s post is going to be all about some GIFT IDEAS FOR HER! So if you have a girlfriend to buy a gift for, or your bestie, or a secret santa, or your sister or cousin, then this might be the post for you. I am also going to base this post on what you can get locally from Malta 🙂
Ok so Lucy really have gone all out and have really saved us!! They have so many gift ideas from stockings full of goodies (however, that’s sold out right now but they can be restocking it for a second time) but they have the empty ones still which you can fill yourselves or Christmas Crackers!!! They also have a page which is literal guide with a list from gift ideas under 10 euros, to gift ideas for kids to gift set ideas! I encourage you to check these pages out, they are a big help for sure!!
GLOV are the brand that brought us the iconic moon pads that remove your makeup so easily and gently revealing clean and soft skin. They made my life simpler for sure. And they introduced the cutest gift set for this year! It’s called the Stardust set, where you will get a cute makeup bag, moon pads, a bag that you can keep your moon pads in and its a laundry bag as well – as you simply put the moon pads in the bag, which you then put in the washing machine, and voila your moon pads are nice and clean!! And you will also get a cute brush too!! You can get this right HERE and you can use my discount code KEZIA where you will get a FREE GIFT when ordering from SV Beauty!
Everyone loves a good pampering, and self-care is something that is ESSENTIAL! And Pupa milano really have got our backs !! The Glitter Lab collection has a variety of sets with body care items, they come in the cutest pack, each box comes with a cute motivational quote which the person can cut up and keep. There’s a lot of sets to choose from but I am sure you will find one for your special loved one! Contact Pupa Milano for info on where your nearest outlet of Pupa Milano is so you can get this cute set either for yourself – as its important to treat yourself- or as a gift!
Jade is a very talented person and if you didn’t know she launched her own brand and has created the cutest of scrunchies! Today she just released her Christmas Collection which includes of two scrunchies and 4 hairbands! I think this would be a cute idea for a gift and they also come in a bag as well. You can get yours now right here.
Another great place you can visit is WOOD AND TASSEL, Martina who is the owner of the brand creates the most intricate and cutest pieces of jewellery, she honestly impresses me every time. I am sure you will find something for your loved one, head on over to her instagram page if you are interested!
And those were my picks, but I am sure there are so many more!
What did you think of my ideas? Do you still have a lot of Christmas shopping left to do?
Let me know in the comments down below!
Good night everyone!!
I recently arrived back from work as I am writing this on Monday, however, this was scheduled for Day 6! And so I am posting it now!
Today’s post is going to be photos from this year’s Christmas Tree. We bought it from Big Mat and it’s really pretty, though I wish it was slightly bigger! Our decor is quite minimalistic especially this year. Sometimes this time of year is harder for some and I am aware that this year due to the pandemic it is harder for all. Yet for my family besides all this, something else is making it harder to celebrate so the decoration was kept at the minimal.
Personally, I love the idea of a Christmas tree as it gives me support when I am on the sofa near it watching a movie or reading a book. There is something about it that creates joy and comfort. Do any of you feel the same way?
And what about your Christmas Tree, what does it look like?
That’s all for today as I have to prepare for my online class tonight and hopefully I will come back and write Blogmas Day 7 too! I kind of am enjoying this writing on my blog especially now that I get to write next to my lit Christmas Tree.
Yep, I am writing Day 5 a day later, and I might need to upload posts this way yet if I do have time on the day I will post it then. Basically let’s do this day by day! How was your Saturday? Would love to know how yours went!
My day 5 included a Gestalt Workshop – I am doing a Masters in Gestalt Psychotherapy, I am currently on Year 2 and it is a part time course so yes it will take till 2023 … even writing it down creates a form of anxiety though I am glad I still have a long time to go because I still have a lot to learn and more grounding to be made before I can see myself ready for the final exam which is still a little daunting. But we will get there, I know so and it will be okay!
So yeah it mostly included a day with Gestalt but it was very interesting and even though I felt tired at first, I was left with some form of energy as I found the content to be very insightful. And after I finished I actually put on some makeup, got into a cute outfit and told Luke, let’s go take some photos with some Christmas Lights I saw popped up close to home. And so we went and took some photos!
And then after we got some Mcdonalds, and I tried the new double quarter pounder, have you guys tried it out?
That’s basically it for today!! I am so excited as I will be sharing my Vlogmas week 1 on Day 6 so stay tuned and be sure to be subscribed to my Youtube Channel!!
Until next time, I hope you have a lovely Sunday!
How are you all doing? I hope you are all taking care! Yesterday I did not upload but am uploading it a day late. I had a long day, I am finding myself to being tired and exhausted. I don’t know if it’s covid fatigue too besides everything that I am experiencing, we all have our stories. However, I still wished to write a Blogmas Day 4!
It will be short and sweet and I hope that tonight I will upload a new one.
All I wanted to share yesterday was how I uploaded a new video on my Youtube Channel about one of the storybooks from I heart Revolution X Disney collaboration! They created three storybooks – one of cinderella, beauty and the beast and the princess and the frog. These sets would be a cute gift idea for someone who loves all things Disney. And if you are from Malta like me, you can order from Lucy Makeup Store, as they just stocked them this week!
For today’s video I focused on The Beauty and the Beast Storybook and I created a very natural look but I do wish to go back and play with it using more colourful shades as it has a beautiful colour story!!
So here is the video, hope you enjoy watching!!
What did you think of the storybook and the makeup look?
That’s all for now, I hope to see you all later with a new Blogmas Post!
It’s that time of year again where I get to share my Christmas Wishlist. I can imagine we all have one and one which builds up and gets changed throughout the year. So grab a hot chocolate and sit by the fire, because here in Malta it is getting awfully chilly I must say – and enjoy reading today’s Blogmas Post!!
This will be short and sweet as that is the way I like it!
#1 – Canon Camera – one that Autofocuses whilst filming!
It’s my dream to own a camera that whilst I am filming a video it just autofocuses on its own. The one I currently have which is the Canon 1200D SLR doesn’t autofocus. I have to press and hold the photo button for it to focus and then it does not readjust whilst filming. Sometimes I film out of focus, however, after getting used to it a little it happens rarely now. Yet still it would make my life easier, and maybe a camera that has a view finder that rotates so I can see what I am filming rather than stopping what I am filming, checking the footage on the camera and restarting again as my head is cut out! So yes, this would be a dream come true, maybe I should start saving for one!
#2 PLT CREAM MAXI TEDDY COAT!!
Oh my goodness, I would love one of these! I love teddy jackets, but a coat one I do not have! Plus coats I only have three, and two of them are a little old!! So I am in need of a coat update!! I have fallen in love with Pretty Little Thing this year, it has definitely become one of my holy grails!! So it would be from that website for sure, and these are the ones I have an eye on and they are added to my wishlist there as PLT are constantly restocking!!
#3 CHUNKY TRAINERS
This year I saw the rise of FILA SNEAKERS!! And well I have started loving them – although I will always be a VANS FAN!!! These ones again on PLT I have had my eye for a while but I always end up removing from my cart! So they just remain in my wishlist yet they are too cute and I can see myself pairing them with a hoodie, jeans and them!!
#4 NEW KNITWEAR
I would love to update my closet with some new knitwear!! I bought a cute top earlier this january from Primark – if I would have known it would be my only trip this year would have gotten five more – but I love it and it’s so comfy!! This one from PLT it’s so cute! I swear this is not a PLT Sponsored Post!
#5 RED FLANNEL PJS
I know haha I should have gotten a set before December but I could not find or I did not look hard enough! But owning a set of red glannel pjs would be awesome!! Such a christmas thing to wear and ahh maybe next year would be waking up on Christmas day with red flannel pjs – its the simple things!!
#6 A CUTE CHRISTMAS MUG!
Ok this is the final item on my list!!! Something else I do not own is a CHRISTMAS MUG!! I think having one is essential!! I will definitely have a set in the future!!
That’s my Christmas Wishlist for 2020!! What is yours? Comment down below, love reading your comments!!!
For today, that will be all!! I hope you all have a great rest of day !! Tomorrow is Friday, so the weekend is approaching!! I hope you take care and stay safe wherever you may be!!!
How are you all doing? How have you been settling into a new month?
Today was a busy day and then I got a little confused with some changes in my day. I am a planner, so when things change from my plan of the day, it takes me some time to adjust and adapt to these changes happening. Something I might need to work on … next year though, far too tired for this year!
Anyways, as I said today’s post would slightly be more Christmas-sy!! And so here it is!!
Each year during the month of December I am so thankful as I get to collaborate with some of my favourite brands of the year and together we produce some lovely giveaways for you all! I just wish to give back something to a community who supports me everyday! I am so grateful for the corner I have built and I feel blessed each day! Thank you so much for supporting me on whichever social media platform, so here is something small to thank you!
The first giveaway is with a shop called Beauty Cosmos which is found in Fgura, I love working with this store! If you want to participate either visit my INSTAGRAM or FACEBOOK PAGE for more info and of course to participate!!!
And stay tuned on my social media and youtube channel for more surprises to come!!
For today, that will be all. I am exhausted and I think I am going to get cosy and watch a tv show, might watch an episode of For Life. Who watches that show? Absolutely love it and cannot wait to watch this episode as a big shift was made in the show!!
I hope you all had a good day, I wish you all to take care, stay safe and have a good rest of day, or a good night!
WELCOME TO ANOTHER BLOGMAS!
I feel guilty for abandoning this space so often, yet I always look forward to the 1st December where I motivate myself to return here and write.
Writing has always been something I love doing, I loved keeping a journal when I was young, I suggest it to many people who are going through a tough time, yet I find myself not having time to just sit down and journal these days. So maybe as I suggest it to others, and I know its benefits, I should try to find and make time for it.
However, this is a beauty blog where I used to come and write reviews, share my videos, share outfits, however, since we started the month of December, Blogmas is here.
I have a list of posts I can write, some are classic and some may be new, some might not be related to christmas because even though its here, this year Christmas is totally different. The world is different.
The pandemic has changed our everyday lives, I hope that wherever you are reading this from, you are taking care and staying safe. And most importantly keeping in mind that by protecting oneself, you’re also protecting your loved ones and the vulnerable.
Therefore, I start this Blogmas by saying that yes I am ok, exhausted, lots of things happening but overall coping and trying to do my best. And you know what, this is what you can only do, you can only try your best.
So join me in my Blogmas 2020 journey, I hope that even though the pandemic is very much here, we still all have a pleasant Christmas and hope that next year would be better.
See you all tomorrow for a hopefully Christmas related post!
How are you all doing? I hope you are all taking care and staying safe from wherever you may be reading this!
Here in my country, autumn is not full of coloured leaves and cool air, yet slowly slowly, the climate here seems to be shifting. Slowly but surely.
I have changed my wardrobe from summer to winter, but am still wearing light-ish clothes.
One item which I started wearing again are joggers, especially during the night time. Last time I wore a pair of joggers when I went to get a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte – first time ever trying that out, have to admit was not my favourite, But yes a pair of joggers is an essential must have for your winter closet!
And I may have found three pairs of joggers that I am going to enjoy wearing in these upcoming winter months. And I wished to share these with you especially if you are on the lookout for a good, comfy pair of joggers.
They are from Femme Luxe Finery and you can check out their website for a variety of choices of joggers! I wish to say a big THANK YOU to FEMME LUXE for these items!
Here the joggers I got, I love them all. They all fit great, these are a size 6 and the sand ones are a size 8. However, the size difference was okay as joggers and their style are meant to be a little oversized! They are very comfortable and the material from the inside are cosy and soft too !!! I also love the colours they came in I definitely recommend joggers from Femme Luxe Finery!
I love them and I honestly have been living in them! But that’s the best thing is that you can dress them down to a casual stay at home outfit, but then also style them to a stylish outfit to go and get a starbucks PSL.
Thank you once again to FEMME LUXE for the opportunity to try out these joggers!
What do you think of joggers? Is a must have in your wardrobe?
Let me know in the comments down below!!
Thank you so much for reading! Thank you for your support!! Love you all and stay safe!!
How are you all doing? I hope you are all taking care and staying safe throughout this pandemic, our new reality!
I have not written in a while, I know. Sitting down to write I think is the hardest thing for me to do right now but for some reason I got the motivation to do it today and I hope that it won’t end.
Just in case it does, as I do not have much hope haha I post daily on my social media and regularly on my Youtube Channel. So be sure to be following me there, in case you missed out on my content!
Today, I am bringing you a haul from Femme Luxe Finery, it’s my second haul and in fact my previous blog post I actually wrote about my first haul from them! I wish to thank Femme Luxe for this collaboration 🙂
Today’s clothes are more everyday ones and we got some tie dye bits which are a must have this Summer 2020!
Here are two t-shirts that I have been wearing throughout the summer! They are pretty and comfortable and you can style them however you wish and pair them with a skirt, or shorts or jeans or leggings, whatever attire is best for the season that you are living in wherever you are from!
They are tie dye t-shirts which are aesthetically pleasing and great for some instagram content!! I love them!!
Now I did not find the exact ones in stock however, I found one which is very similar just in case you are interested! Click here to view!
Then I have the – Grey High Waisted Lightweight Joggers – Kimora
These are super comfy, I won’t be wearing them now as it’s boiling hot, however, will definitely wear them when the weather will start to cool down! They are comfy joggers, perfect for a movie night at home!!
Grab the same ones right here!
The final product I have to show you is this t-shirt right here with the most adorable slogan! Have been loving slogan t-shirts!
White ‘There’s No Place Like Home’ Slogan Print T-Shirt – Jana -There’s no place like home !! So true, wouldn’t you agree?
It’s so comfy and I got mine in a larger size, however, you can style it in so many ways with different outfits! Grab your very own there’s no place like home t-shirt, RIGHT HERE!
What’s your favourite item from Femme Luxe Finery?
Let me know in the comments down below!!!
That’s all for today everyone, hope you enjoyed reading!!
I will see you in my next post!!
I hope you are all doing well, taking care and staying safe! Life as we know it has changed, and it seems that we need to start seeing how to live and adapt to a new reality. I know that right now we may not be going out as we used to, though I am using this time in Quarantine to spend time with myself and get to know me more. That also includes my style, and am styling my wardrobe and adding new pieces.
Some pieces that I have added where in collaboration with Femme Luxe Finery. And today’s blog post is going to be a review on 4 clothing items from this brand. They have a variety of things, from Joggers to Loungewear and T-shirts.– which I know that we are living in right now!
I selected four items as I said and here are my thoughts on them!
The first item is a Loungewear set in a camel shade. I got mine in the size Small and the trousers fit a little big but will fix them. Yet I wish I got the top a little bigger as I love that baggy top! But it still went well together. The material, is not my favourite yet for a loungewear set it’s cute and comfortable to stay in whilst at home binge watching Elite on Netflix! It costs €22.95 and I like that you can buy them as a set!
The next clothing piece is this black dress right here. I paired it with a white strappy heel! I love this dress, the arms are so cutely designed! The only thing that was uncomfortable was the polo collar as it was a little tight, though it did loosen up once I wore the dress! This dress would be so cute to wear for a dinner date or a fancy party which I really want to go to right now – would give me a reason to dress up! The dress costs €22.95 and I think for the price it is worth it!
Another dress that I picked up was this wine number! It’s unlike anything that I have in my closet! I love the design of it, it comes with one sleeve and then you wrap the other side around! The skirt part at first I was like mmmm maybe not, but once I put it on, I loved the way the dress fit! It’s honestly a dress that represents glam and can be worn for lovely occasions! The dress costs €20.95 which is quite worth it!
I love this t-shirt, so happy that it has been added to my collection and will be wearing it a lot in the next couple of summer months! Not only do I like it’s material and it fits really well, but I love the slogan on the t-shirt and I stand by it! “In a world where you can be anything BE KIND!!!” It’s a quote that resonates me and it’s something that we should all remember, we are all human, words are so powerful, so it’s so important to use them kindly! It also reminds me of the beautiful Caroline Flack, let’s try and be kind to each other! The t-shirt costs €8,95!
So yeah! Those were the pieces that I wished to share with you all today! I think that overall, I loved what I received from Femme Luxe Finery!
I also wish to share that I uploaded a video about all these items if you wish to also see it 🙂
I would like to thank FEMME LUXE FINERY for the lovely opportunity to collaborate with them, and I look forward to our next collaboration!!!
Which was your favourite piece?
Thank you all for reading!! And thank you for all your support!!
