Blogmas Day 9 – NEW VIDEOS!!

Hi everyone,

I hope all is well! I am bringing another post today and hoping that tomorrow’s post will include more content related to Blogmas!! I did tell you guys, or warn you that my blog posts would not all be festive!

However, I guess one of the videos I will be sharing here today is VLOGMAS so that does count as Christmas themed, no?

Yes today’s post is just updating you on two NEW videos that I have uploaded on my YOUTUBE CHANNEL! I wished to share them here as well!

First one being is WEEK 1 of VLOGMAS 2020. I like uploaded a weekly vlog, and this did not change for vlogmas! i cannot vlog a day and upload a vlog a day, I think I would over stress myself with everything that I am juggling right now, so a weekly vlog will do. And FUN FACT I have actually been uploading weekly vlogs all week this year!!! It’s the first time I have managed and it was a new year’s resolution so so far I am acing it!!

So yes here is the first weekly vlog dedicated to VLOGMAS this year, I hope you enjoy watching –

And that’s not all, I just uploaded my first beauty video of the week where I shared me unboxing two gift sets from I heart Revolution – The Chocoholic Gift Set as well as the Chill Gift Set! So if you wish to see what I am going on about then check out this video –

And basically that’s all for today, I do hope tomorrow I will be able to sit down and full on write one of the blogmas post ideas I have on my long list on my sticky note app on my laptop! Apologies for the very long sentence!!

Good night everyone and stay safe!

Love Kezia

Blogmas Day 7 – Gift Ideas for Her

Hi everyone,

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!

I also uploaded a NEW GIVEAWAY on my FACEBOOK and INSTAGRAM, check them out now!

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 🙂

#1 Lucy Makeup Store

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!!

#2 GLOV STARDUST SET!

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!

#3 PUPA MILANO GLITTER LAB

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!

#4 JADE WITH LOVE

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.

#5 WOOD AND TASSEL HANDMADE JEWELLERY

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!!

Blogmas Day 6 – My Christmas Tree

Hi 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.

Love Kezia

Blogmas Day 5 – Christmas Lights

Hi everyone,

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!

Love Kezia

Blogmas Day 3 – My Christmas Wishlist

Hi everyone,

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!!!

Blogmas Day 2 – First Christmas Giveaway

Hi everyone,

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!

Love Kezia

Blogmas 2020 Day 1.

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!

Love Kezia

Blogmas Day 16 – My Favourite Christmas Movies this year!

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all doing well !! I know I have not kept up with this year’s blogmas but I am also doing Vlogmas on my Youtube Channel, and you can always catch up with me there !!

Anyways, today’s blog post is all about my favourite Christmas Movies of this year !! Ones that I need to rewatch or found out about this year! I now do most of my christmas movie watching on Netflix ! Love that little thing!

So let’s begin ..

#1 The Santa Clause

This is a classic and one that reminds me of my childhood, watching it on video cassette – you know those ones that you need to rewind before you can watch them! I loved this series but the first one is such a classic and it is my favourite movie to watch on Christmas Day. It really warms my heart when I watch it as it takes me back to my past, back to when I believed in Santa Clause and I used to leave milk and cookies before I slept for Santa with my brother. Then at 6am on Christmas Day we used to wake up bright and early and just scream to the living room where we have our Christmas tree and we would find the milk and cookies finished and presents underneath the Christmas tree. my parents really did an amazing job on Christmas !!

So yeah this is the best movie to watch on Christmas Day in my opinion!

#2 ELF

Ok this is another classic and one which is irreplaceable … if you have not watched this like what are you waiting for it is a classic must see Christmas Movie! I just love watching it it is just so funny and brings the Christmas Delight! If you need a laugh, then this is the movie for you!

#3 A Christmas Prince

This came out last year and I really loved it – a second and third movie following this have come out on Netflix but I have not watched them yet. But I loved the first one so I must love these two, so they are on my list to watch!! Want to see where the new princess is now, it really reminds me of Princess Diaries, loved that book series, what happened to the movie they were supposed to do?

#4 The Polar Express

Ok so I am going to be honest and say that I watched this for the first time … LAST YEAR! And I would love to rewatch it as I loved it. And I do not know why it took me so long to watch it! It’s such a great Christmas Animation Movie, just too cute and you guys no matter how old you are okay you must watch it. I mean whilst writing this I am watching Klaus on Netflix, my brother told me it’s good so I was like let me check it out and so far it is quite funny! It might be on my top Christmas Movies to watch next year!

#5 The Princess Switch

Oh my I loved this – it made me laugh and it is fun to watch! And also Vanessa Hudgens was in the movie and I was a big fan of her in High School Musical. Whoever remembers that movie, must be close to my age haha! So I gave it a watch and it’s like the classic Lindsay Lohan movie Parent Trap sort of! I loved the idea of the movie and I hope there is like a sequel to this one!

#6 New Year’s Eve

I love watching this because there’s Zac Efron but no I really need to rewatch this, it’s on Netflix and I had loved this when I had watched it at the cinema way back when it came out! It was like the Love Actually movie, where so many actors came together and created a holiday film! So you are not following just one story but you would be following many!

#7 Santa Girl

Haha ok so the acting of this one is a little cringe-y especially that blonde guy but it is a sweet overall movie where we see the daughter of Santa wanting a normal life. So that is like a different twist rather than focusing on Santa Clause. I recommend this as it is different, fun to watch !

#8 I’ll be there for Christmas

This is a sweet movie, been out for a while but still adorable. The little girl is just too cute in it too ! And it’s mostly about a father and daughter relationship that repairs itself during the holidays. Cute family movie, for sure!

#9 Holiday in the Wild

Okay so this one I had started it with Luke but I fell asleep but I really want to see it again! It’s one of the new movies from Netflix this year and it has a cute storyline about this woman finding herself, Need to continue watching it and i slept not because it was not interesting but because I was so sleepy!!

#10 Merry Happy Whatever

Ok so this is not a movie but it is a Christmas TV Series that Netflix brought out! I think it should be here as it won’t take you long to watch it. It’s eight episodes of 30 minutes each. A funny comedy about this family and there’s Ashley Tisdale in it….yes I am a big fan of high school musical, it’s a classic movie that takes me back to my teenage years okay. Anyways, yes if you have some time and are stuck on what to choose to watch, check out this series, I guarantee you will have a little laugh along the way!!

And there you have it, that is my Favourite Christmas Movies for 2019!

What are yours? Would love to know maybe I can get some ideas !! Let me know your answers in the comments down below!!

Thank you all for reading and good night!

Love Kezia

Blogmas Day 1 🌲☃️

Hi everyone,

It’s that time of year again!! During the past three years I have done Blogmas and this year will not be the exception!

Blogmas may also get me in touch with writing again as I seem to have abandoned this platform and gave priority to my others. For this I apologize, I do not want to give excuses, however, it could be my denial in the way that I soon have to sit down and write an assignment for the masters course I am undertaking. Please note I have not written an assignment in over a year!!

Anyways, Kezia we are drifting away from the subject of this post and that is BLOGMAS!!!! December is here and today is the first day of the month! I’m so excited to see what this month brings and I look forward to celebrating the holiday season with my loved ones! I will try and post a blog post a day as that is what Blogmas entails! And each day will cover a different Christmas theme!

Today’s post is going to be more of an introduction and with that I shall leave a photo of my advent calendar. This year it is of Kinder, does anyone have the same calendar as me???

I opened the first window and found a white bueno flake. I am not going to lie but it was a little dry. Yet am excited as I think each day will be a different kinder treat, so I cannot complain there.

Also, today marked the first Christmas giveaway that I shall be hosting on my Instagram and Facebook. Throughout the month of December I will have Christmas giveaways and this is to thank you for all your amazing support! I also want to thank the brands who so kindly agreed to collaborate with me!

The first Christmas giveaway is with Wood and Tassel which is a handmade jewellery brand created by a talented Martina! To participate on my Facebook page click here or to participate on my Instagram page click here.

Anyways, I do not have much to add, just that I look forward to seeing where December takes me!! I wish you all a lovely first day in December as well as the rest of the month!

Love you all!

Kezia
