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!

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 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!

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!

Christmas 2019 at The Body Shop

Hi everyone,

How are you all doing? It seems finally in Malta the weather is finally getting colder! In fact, I am writing this blog post whilst hearing rain pouring outside. Best feeling ever!!

November is soon coming to an end, which means that December is right around the corner. This means that Christmas is soon with us – with a month to go!

I cannot believe it, time really does fly by!

So today, I am writing up this blog post to share with you what The Body Shop have in store for us this Christmas 2019! So if you love pampering your bodies and love smelling AMAZING, then continue reading!!

I would like to thank The Body Shop Malta for giving me a tour of their Christmas 2019 products!

This year’s CHRISTMAS SCENTS at The Body Shop!

I will not repeat this in each one but THE PACKAGING of each of these items is AMAZING!!

Juicy Pear – This includes the Body Yoghurt, Shower Gel, Body Butter, Bath Bomb, Body Scrub and Hand Cream. I love this fruity scent! I have been using the hand cream almost every day but have been using another scented one on alternate days.

Rich Plum – Fun fact – the first ever body shop product I bought was a plum body butter! This scent comes as a Body Scrub, Shower Gel, Bath Bomb, Body Yoghurt and Body Butter. And of course as a Hand Cream as well – this is the other one that I have been loving!!!

Warm Vanilla – Vanilla lovers out there I bring you the scent you are most definitely going to love! This comes as a Shower Gel, Body Yoghurt, Body Scrub, Body Butter, Bath Bomb and Hand Cream.

Vanilla Pumpkin – I LOVE this scent!! It mixes what I love about Fall and my love for vanilla – you cannot ask for more! This comes as a Body Butter and Shower Gel.

You can buy all these as individual items, however, The Body Shop have also created the cutest gift sets with these products!!

They also created these festive sacks of the Juicy Pear, Rich Plum and Warm Vanilla scents – they would make amazing Christmas Gifts for your loved ones!!!

Also ….. The Body Shop have released a WIDE selection of ADVENT CALENDARS! I love their designs – they show the first ever The Body Shop Outlet which had opened up in Brighton!

Blogmas Day 7 – Favourite Christmas Memory

Hi everyone, 

How are you all doing? I hope everyone is doing amazingly! It’s Friday, which means we all deserve a break, so I wish you all an amazing weekend!

Today’s Blogmas I reckoned I would write a little and share with you all my Favourite Christmas Memory. But I would love to hear yours too! So don’t forget to share that with me in the comments down below!

My favourite Christmas memory goes back a couple of years, to when I was around 8 I would say. And my brother was  4. It had just turned 6am and I immediately open my eyes with that bubble of excitement and my brother awakes with me! We had left the milk and cookies for father christmas the night before as well as some carrots for his reindeers. We dash off to the sitting room which is were our Christmas Tree is and what we see was just like in the movies. The light was lit, there were presents under the tree that were not there last night and the milk and cookies where gone! 

But then we noticed socks hanging on the light that was hanging on the ceiling and the carrots were half eaten, with the pieces that weren’t touched all thrown around our sitting room and hall. To which then we realised something odd, something that wasn’t there before we fell asleep. . . it’s something which when I look back I laugh and just know how much my parents love us and how much they are willing to do for us to keep us happy! 

My brother and I noticed … poop! That’s right POOP on our floor, and we were potty trained ok so it wasn’t one of us and we didn’t have pets at home! I put two and two together being one who believed in Santa and said that that was santa’s reindeers poop! We go running into my parents room and just yell about the poop that was left. What’s funny is that we didn’t touch the presents but rather were mesmerised by the poop!

If you believe in Santa, don’t keep on reading from here!!!

Later on, as the years went by I had asked my mother of where that came from and she told me how she stayed carrying it from where she kept a horse that she had back then, little did I know then that the poop I had seen was Serenade’s poop instead of the reindeers as I had easily believed! 

And that’s my favourite Christmas memory that I share with my family. But apart from that I just loved Christmas growing up, we had our family christmas lunch and our traditions of going to mass together and seeing all of our family. As the years went by, and some people unfortunately left us, these traditions slowly diminished. But I guess each year we try to build new memories and new traditions and I am always forever grateful of my amazing parents who made my brother and my childhood as amazing as can be! Love you mum and dad even though they probably don’t read my blog posts nor do they know I have this blog! 

So yeah, today was a bit different, I kind of shared something close to my heart! I hope you can find the comfort in sharing with me and everyone here on my blog, your favourite christmas memory!! 

Thank you so much for reading and for all your amazing support!

Love Kezia

The Final Blogmas 🎄🎅🏻☃️

Hi everyone,

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas with your family and loved ones!! I wish you all the best and a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Hope you are enjoying the final days of 2017!

I wanted to come here and write a blog post about my Christmas Day. This year’s Blogmas did not go as planned. I guess with coming back to Malta I got a little side tracked and I just enjoyed my time with my loved one who I have been missing so much whilst at Stirling.

I just uploaded my final VLOGMAS and wanted to come over here and share it with you guys as well!!

Here I show you what I was up to this week!

26132602_10213334345365778_2115246238_o

Basically Christmas for me and my family is quite low key. We like keeping it simple and celebrating it at home with a delicious home cooked lunch! It’s a yearly tradition!

26108198_10213334342365703_1555895927_o

However, this year my Christmas Eve and Christmas morning was slightly different than previous years. Luke and I went to the Intercontinental Hotel in St.Julians and we spent the night there. I really enjoyed it and I thank Luke so much for coming up with the idea and for taking me there! The room was really cosy and I loved the bathroom! It had everything such as a dental care packet, a shaving kit and even a needle kit was provided by the hotel!

26177465_10213334644773263_1088173213_o

We also ended up getting sushi for the night from Gochi and that was delicious!

26105186_10213334345725787_622497769_o

And then on Christmas morning we went down for breakfast and we had ourselves a big one! They literally had everything and it just tasted amazing!

26132621_10213334346525807_1155963435_o

This year we also wore matching sweater that I got us from Primark and I kind of want to do that a yearly tradition as well, I think it’s cute. Of course if Luke agrees that is!

26107867_10213334340965668_1207869608_o

We then packed and went home to my Family’s Christmas Lunch! We had a prawn cocktail as a starter and the main dish was chicken, meat, potatoes and veggies. There was also ice cream in the end! We just ended up so full!!

I loved spending Christmas with my loved ones. And I hope you all did too.

I know that the holidays can sometimes be hard for some people especially if we don’t have everyone here to celebrate it with. But I promise that no matter how far away the other person may be or if they are no longer with you, they will always be close to you, close in your heart!

All in all, I just hope you were all safe and felt loved. I wish you all the best for the New Year! And if you’re drinking please don’t forget to be safe !!
