Hello my friends!

Long time no manicures on this blog and I thought I’d have to change that, especially for winter/christmas. I will be bringing you one mani tutorial on each advent sunday. Don’t worry, I’ll make them all easy as nobody wants to invest too much time in doing something that might go wrong in the end, right? Enjoy your sunday with family, friends and some sweet and hot treats.

I hope you’ll find inspiration in these short little tutorials and if you copy one of those, please upload a picture and tag me on twitter, instagram, facebook or even on snapchat! (my snapchat is: snowhoney_da)

Fourth Advent: Christmas Decorations

Hello everyone and have a great fourth advent!

Most of my decorations have been up for a while, I mean, come on it’s already December 21st!… but I wanted to show you everything. Complete only with the tree which has been up since the 17th. Yup, kinda later than what my boyfriend wanted, but when you need to buy everything because you do not have anything yet… well, good and pretty things take some time 😉

We’ve decided on multi-coloured lights because my boyfriend likes them better. I am a fan of warm white lights, but hey, I thought why not let him have this his way. After all, I do like multi-coloured lights too.

Oh and by the way, as we had to buy everything new, we went for LED’s because a) they live longer and b) they are way more energy-efficient.

The balcony rail is covered with fir branches that are loosely held by some wire. And to make it really pretty (I think it looks so lovely!) we have put some warm white lights in there too (sorry I do not have a good picture of it for you).

This one isn’t very spectacular… it is bought and I just added a little something. But you know what? I still think it is pretty with the red candles. And the needles are holding as if they were plastic. Seriously, they are NOT falling off. Love it.

The tree is my boyfriends baby. He loves his tree and he chose it. It is a little bit taller than planned, but it works perfectly for us. Decorated with some pretty warm white lights, some baubles in red, green and gold and some other decorations. And I bought ALL of these decorations, because that was my domaine 😉 I wish we had some blue baubles too, but I couldn’t find any pretty ones. Whatever, I think the tree still looks pretty awesome.

Third Advent: Christmas Tunes and Views

Hello and have yourself a good third advent!

There is one more thing that I will be doing year after year again… because not only does it make me feel good, no it helps me get festive. I am not the biggest fan of christmas since it has lost its magic over the years (you know when your parents start to ditch the christmas tree and stop buying you real presents to give you money instead…).

My five favourite christmas tunes:

 

And my three favourite christmas views from my pool of series:
1) Hawaii Five-0, yep they have christmas episodes! 🙂
2) Doctor Who, but it’s gotta be either The Christmas Invasion, The End of Time (Part 1+2) or A Christmas Carol
3) Warehouse 13, episode „Secret Santa“

 

Do you watch anything special? Tell me in the comments.

Hello everyone!

I know it sometimes is rather hard to get in the festive spirit… who can blame you when it looks nothing like christmas out there? Yeah, there might be decorations and lights, but how in the name of sanity should it feel festive/christmas-y without snow?… but actually I do not really want snow where I live, because it pretty much turns to mud in a heartbeat.

Well, to help get you (and me) in the festive spirit, I thought I’d share some festive youtube videos and some of my favourite christmas songs.

Challenge yourself with Zoella and Tanya Burr. What do you know about christmas?

Do you know all the christmas songs?

Need some more inspiration on how to decorate your appartement/house/room? Get creative and let yourself be inspired by some other videos:

You want to craft even more christmas decorations? Here you go:

 

Enough videos for now. But seriously, youtube is my favourite place at the moment because of so many festive videos from my favourite youtubers. Lots of them are doing vlogmas in some form and I freaking love it. My favourites this year are FleurdeForce (her vlog channel), Amelia Liana (watch her here) and MissGlamorazzi (vlog channel here).
But they aren’t the only ones that are doing amazing christmas-y videos. If you want some english-canadian love go over to essiebutton’s vlog-channel and watch her Jingleweek vlogs.
And there are even more… but I’ll let you find your own favourites 😉

So, are you already feeling the festive spirit within you?

 

Hi everyone!

Today I will show you something I have never shown on the blog before… no, don’t worry it won’t gross you out (I hope oO) and it will not be something un-classy or whatever bad thing you are thinking now.

I will show you all my scented candles, because I, as many women, love scented candles. Especially in fall/winter.
