An indescribable gift ❤️The Christmas story
Like butter wouldn’t melt this one 🙈
Obviously this was taken last week when it wasn’t raining and blowing a gale 🙈
I wrote my last exam today! My first semester of masters is done 🥳💃🏻 It’s the BEST FEELING 🥰Are you a student? Are you working? I’d love to know where you’re at with these education-work things! I’m studying my Masters in English Literature in India and also doing some freelance writing and editing work.
I will continue my Harry Potter read after watching a film this evening. Any recommendations?
Письмо мои дорогим друзьям! 💌Прекрасные и любимые, все с кем я давно не обнималась, а так хотелось бы увидеться в этом году до нашего отъезда 25 декабря. Я буду бесконечно рада видеть и разделить с вами праздник, который мы там долго готовили всей командой - приходите всей семьей на сказочной красоты фестиваль «Рождество на ферме» #рождествонаферме #seasonsfest @seasons_project
в эти выходные 22-23 декабря, Городская Ферма, ВДНХ, с 11:00-20:00. А для тех, кто любит музыкальные камерные вечера в уютной компании с вкусными напитками, перетекающими в танцы - в 20:00 начинаются квартирники в редакции. Я так счастлива и горда, что совсем скоро вы увидите это чудо, буду всех ждать! И не забудьте прикупить подарочки на маркете, там вас ждут настоящие сокровища:) ✨

It's a snow day today for Lucas 🌨️ Anyone else not know what to do with their kid on a snow day? 🤔😂 I think we may just go to the mall and look for some more Christmas gifts 🎅.. Ps how cute are @nickharvey18
?! We went to the beach to do some cute grad photos and snuck many sweet photos of them together in between! 😍
There’s always a chance. Except this was hot chocolate! 🍾
It’s a Christmas-prep kind of day! No matter how much I think I’m ahead of the game, there are always a million extra things to do the week before Christmas. Today, I’m making lists, running errands, grabbing any lingering gifts, wrapping and bagging everything and finalizing my Christmas Eve menu. The kids only have 3 more days of school before the break so I’m taking advantage of alone time (alone = me + Rosie)! The baby is cutting another tooth so it looks like I’ll need a ton of coffee and major organization! #christmasprep #wrappinggifts #therosieporch
Cookie decorating kits are available, no baking necessary! Cookies, frosting and sprinkles provided- a fun activity for the kids! Stop by or give us a call from 10-3 to get yours! #sugamamasbakery
Quanto ci piace questa collaborazione!!grazie 🙏🏻☺️ #Repost @cronachediunabionda
____Quando spesso mi domandate, come mai ti mandano le cose per la colazione, penso alla prima foto che feci. Avevo preso spunti, avevo osservato, mi ero documentata, ero affascinata da quelle foto meravigliose di Pinterest.
Poi ci ho messo del mio.
La colazione l’ho sempre considerata uno dei momenti più importanti della giornata, uno di quelli che ti serve per partire, per condividere, per coccolarsi. Ne ho messe tante, ho spinto il messaggio perché ci credevo, perché mi piaceva e sì’ anche a prescindere dal risultato.
Oggi, sono qui ancora una volta a collaborare con @andrinimarmellate
che quando ti mandano le cose sei felice come una bambina la prima volta al luna park: con le marmellate, la crema di marroni e oggi per la gioia del maschio e degli invitati per queste feste di Natale anche le mostarde.
Il senso di tutto questo Pippone , è per dirvi come sempre che qualsiasi progetto avete, oltre che a crederci dovete impegnarvi, studiate, inspiratevi e ma soprattutto metteteci del vostro.

🎄DIY Christmas sweater and first photo with my Christmas tree this year 💖. How is that Christmas is only a week away? I’m not quite ready yet for this pre-Christmas cheer to end 😆
Btw, I’m surprised how comfy is this @mak_sweater
sweater too. I often feel scratchy from some sweaters due to my sensitive skin so thankfully this one is ok.
Всем любителям ставить эксперименты над мозгом посвящается.
Писали со спикером статью о том, как развивать креативное мышление, даже если ты скучный и без воображения, как параллельная прямая. Он мне накидал пару эффективных приемов, которыми пользуются его креативщики. От сердца отрываю, но все для вас:
- Уровень 1. Простой: зеркальное рисование . Возьмите левой и правой рукой ручку и начните рисовать одновременно простые фигуры - квадраты, круги, петли. Как только освоитесь, начинайте творить настоящие шедевры. Я, естественно, сломалась на квадрате. 🧠
- Уровень 2. Сложный: посмотрите вторую картинку в ленте и быстро называйте цвет слов. 99,9 - вы сломаетесь на желтом (ну или утешьте меня, что я не одна такая).
Практикуйте через день и будет вам счастье, хорошее настроение и столько креатива, сколько может вынести ваше правое полушарие.
We are loving being on tour 😍🥂🎉 love seeing you all! See you tonight Birmingham! 🍾
These rings sure are adding to the Christmas sparkle in the studio today! 💎💎💎
London’s answer to the gingerbread house, and this one comes with ashtrays 🚬 🍡🏠 another stark difference being that the risk of being cooked and eaten on the Kings Road is significantly less than was the case for Hansel & Gretel. Good bloody god that’s a dark story. What is it with our parents and their macabre obsession with reciting utterly traumatising stories to us at bedtime?? People are very quick to get their knickers in a twist when anyone so much as hints that a childhood story or well loved classic might actually be problematic (The Little Mermaid and Ariel sacrificing HER VOICE for a bloke she’s never even met. Baby It’s Cold Outside and the fact that no means no (still a great song and much loved classic, before you come after me with a pitchfork). Hansel & Gretel, you shouldn’t try to cook children etc). I don’t know why. Time move on, we grow and get better. They smoked on planes until they realised that smoking on planes was utterly moronic. People skied without helmets and drove without seatbelts. I don’t think this is liberalism gone mad, I think it’s evolution and for the most part I think it’s probably a good thing, for what it’s worth 🤷🏼♀️
Don't go chasing waterfalls so the song goes, but we'll make exceptions if it's located in Chile and as gorg as this 😉 #wundergogo

Skincare Review: Aloe Unique Gentle Facial Wash (R92.50 for 150ml).
If you're on the hunt for a good, affordable and gentle cleanser, this one from Aloe Unique may be a great option. Enriched with glycerin, vitamin E and Aloe Ferox, this cleanser claims to remove impurities and pollutants to leave the skin balanced and soothed. As the second step of my double cleansing routine, this is a gel cleanser that foams up a little. I find that it does a great job at cleansing the skin without stripping it/leaving it dry. I especially enjoyed using in the days after my chemical peels because it's super gentle while still being effective.
If you have dry skin, this cleanser may not be hydrating or moisturizing enough but, if you have combination to oily skin, it's worth checking out.

Has your skin been blessed with our clean and green cosmeceuticals? 🍃💚
We want to know your fav product and why...
Some times on these grey and grey and did I mention, grey days in Wales I have to work much harder to appreciate the colour that surrounds me.
I actually really like Winter for this very reason. Yes it's dull, but have you ever really noticed just how many colours create DULL? Go have a look, it is truly beautiful, and once you've finished looking at the soft earth tones the green of the grass will be as vibrant as you will have ever known it. *
I do LOVE a pop of Red though - don't you?
Here's the tiniest of Galleries that has opened in Llangrannog, @sea
&slate. Crammed full of the best of welsh crafts, pop over and say high XX *
Our front door is a minty green, we inherited it that colour and it has grown on me, but I do love a red door! What colour is your front door? do you love it - would you change it?
Сидеть на свежем воздухе, укутавшись в тёплый пуховик, допивать горячее какао и согревать замёрзшие руки у костра под знакомые мотивы новогодних песен - вот он идеальный Декабрь🍪🥛
Io direi che non c’è nulla da aggiungere
Bergamo è bellissima dallo specchietto di Lulù
Revlon Dramatic Definition Mascara (around R150) - I love the lightweight, non-clumpy formula and the definition it gives but this mascara is too natural for my liking (i.e. it doesn't add much volume or length). Repurchase? Nope.
Nyx Vivid Brights Liquid Eyeliner in 'Vivid Fire' (around R130) - the shade is a stunning red-pink but this particular one in the range is a little patchy, too thick and doesn't layer well. Repurchase? No.
Essence Lipstick in 'Don't Stop the Nude' - this is a stunning nude shade for medium to darker skin tones. I really loved this at first but I've since found a better alternative (Revlon's Superstar Brown). This Essence lipstick is not long-lasting at all so I won't repurchase.

Happy Sunday Everyone!
I've been loving the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in 'Alkaline' (around R230) for the past few weeks. The shade is a berry-burgundy and, surprisingly, this shade suits most eye looks. Seriously, it's such an adaptable shade because it pairs well with neutral and bolder looks.
In terms of formula, this product is smooth, creamy, and pigmented. However, I do find that the product tends to transfer when used on the waterline (so I have to make sure to add around 2 layers). Personally, I find that the colourful (or non-neutral) 24/7 Glide On pencils don't really last on the waterline. Despite this, I still love this eyeliner - it works well as an eyeshadow base and it's easy to smudge out for a grunge-y look. These UD eyeliners are quite pricey but the shade range is pretty extensive - and difficult to dupe. However, Essence has recently released more shades of their retractable eyeliners and I think they're a good option if you're on a budget.

Makeup Review: Ofra Highlighter in 'Rodeo Drive'.
The Ofra highlighters have been hyped up in the beauty community so, when they had a 40% off sale a few months ago, I picked up the shade Rodeo Drive. It's a pretty universal shade - it works on my medium skin tone and I've tested it out on lighter skin tones. On my skin, it translates to a yellow champagne shade.
In terms of pigmentation, this highlighter is blinding and the formula is smooth and creamy. It applies well (evenly with no chunky glitter) and blends easily. However, I suggest adding a very light layer and building up the highlight. Also, this highlighter lasts long on the cheeks and looks better as it wears on. The only con is that it does emphasize texture (like most highlighters). The price is more on the higher end side but Ofra SA tends to have a lot of 40% off sales and a couple of bloggers have 20% off discount codes.
