New Years Resolutions 2016

Everybody's writing about they're goals for 2016. And I want to join in the fun! 2015 was an amazing year. So much happened, good and bad things. Mostly good and lovely though. I, for example, started this blog, got voted into the top 10 wedding bloggers of Finland, got married and visited the USA for the first time in my life. Those are huge things and I'm more than grateful for all of them. Unfortunately I experienced some sadness as well when my dear Grandfather passed away at the beginning of the year. He was very important to me and I guess even now I'm not quite over it and I miss him so much. But I also believe that he wished me to be happy and in the end, that I have been <3

Perfectly Pink Lips

When you say nude you could be meaning a good amount of things. Especially if you're talking about lipstick shades. It can be pink or it can be peachy. If you're not into makeup this will sound really absurd to you, but pink and peach are totally different. I remember a time when I didn't quite get the joke in the movie Devil Wears Prada, when Andrea points out that the two belts look exactly the same. Because they did. Nowadays, I totally understand haha.

Christmas Outfits

Hey lovelies<3 I hope everybody's week is going well! Today I want to show you what I'll be wearing on Christmas. But before I do that I would love you to check a site called Pep & Prose. It's a lifestyle website for young women and I'm really proud to announce, that my some of my makeup tutorials will be published there! They also publish inspiring and empowering articles of style, fitness and books written by other bloggers, so go check it out :)

But now onto the topic! I feel like Christmas requires two outfits. Christmas morning is always very chilled and I spend many hours in front of the telly and in the sauna. For this part of the day I tend to wear some christmassy leggings, a Christmas jumper and some woolly sock, since it's always sooo cold at my parents house!

Gift Wrapping

Mission accomplished peeps! I fianlly bought the last pressie today and all that's left is the wrapping. Personally I love wrapping gifts. I'm not a massive arts & crafts person but present wrapping is one of those little things I enjoy and for the past couple of years I've opted for something different than the basic Christmas wrapping papers.

Drugstore Christmas Makeup Tutorial

This time next week it's Christmas. And that just sounds so crazy. I'm so exciteeedd! Another thing I can't wait to pass by is the darkest day of the year (is the correct term shortest day?), which is the 22nd of December. I filmed another video for you and was in such a hurry to have it all done with by the time it starts getting dark again. Can I add a studio light to my Christmas wishlist? It would make life (or filming) 1000x easier! 

Since my next video will be published on THE Christmas Day, I thought I'd show you now what my make up of the day will be for the special occasion.

Fave of Youtube

The past couple of days I've spent under a blanket, drinking something warm and keeping a tissue package close to me at all times. In other words, the flu got me! Nooooo! But oh well, I'm going to make the most out of it (as if there's much to do when you're ill) and concentrate on watching Youtube and maybe a couple of Christmassy films. Whilst doing so I thought I'd list my fave Youtube channels at the moment. Luckily, most of them are doing vlogmas at the moment, so there's a lot to watch! These are in no particular order and they all are very cheery and lovely!

DIY Lip Scrub

A yummy lip scrub is something I couldn't live without in the wintertime. Using one is definitely part of my everyday skincare routine and I love making my own scrub. That way I know what ingredients the scrub consists of. This one is really easy to make and it takes less than five minutes. It also tastes really yummy and very sweet, so I usually just eat the excess on my lips :D

Buying a pet rabbit

I'm so excited to introduce Myrtle the bunny (Myrtti in Finnish) to you! She is a 3 month old dwarf lop (I think you call them Holland lops in the US?). She's named after Moaning Myrtle from Harry Potter, who looks similar with the floppy ponytails. However, their personalities couldn't be any different.

Gifts for Him

Men can be sooo difficult! And I didn't say that only because they always say that about us ladies. I aaalways struggle to find gifts for them. A guy can buy a girl jewellery or a fragrance or a gift set from Body Shop and she'll surely be more than happy. If somebody has figured the presents that will never fail for men, then please, do share! But here's what I thought they might appreciate this Christmas.

My Christmas Wishlist

I haven't written to Santa in many years. He must be really clever though, because somehow  he still seems to know what I like hehe. Now that I have this blog and knowing a little list might actually help somebody else as well to buy gifts for another person, I decided a list is exactly what I want to do. If you know a (blogging) makeupjunkie or a person who loves cute things, this list might just make your pressie search a lot easier.

Christmas TAG

I really wanted to add some pictures of our Christmas decorations into todays post, but as I said in my lates video: "there is NO light in this country at the moment"! Oh well. Today I'm anyway going to do a tag, because I think they're so much fun! Since you all shared with me your favourite things about Christmas lately in my little giveaway, I thought it was my turn to share mine now. This tag is called The Christmas Tag, which I saw on  the Confessions of a Nagging Mother -blog. Here goes.

Favourite Christmas movie? 
Love actually. Colin Firth and the little boy are my fave characters! And I also absolutely must mention The Snowman. It's the best ever!

Do you open your Christmas presents in the morning or afternoon?
In Finland, we open our presents on the 24th. Father Christmas visits us a day earlier than the UK, which I guess makes sense since he lives here ;) Anyways I think I like the British way better, because here we open the presents in the evening and have to go through Christmas dinner before that and the wait is looooong! I'd rather have the presents in the morning and then relax with the food :D 

Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?
Oh yes! As a kid we used to spend every other Christmas in England and I remember us going for a drive to Central London on Christmas day in the evening, when there was nobody else around. We went to see all the Christmas lights and they are so beautiful in London <3 

Favourite festive food?
Mince pies are delicious! And the Finnish equivalent to them are called joulutorttu, which I enjoy even more. They're not exactly the same and instead of having mince meat in the center, they are filled with plum marmalade. With a srinkle of icing sugar on top, they taste heavenly! I could eat 10 in a row. They are my greatest motivation at the gym this time of the year haha!

Favourite Christmas gift?
I can't and won't pick one! As a child I got more excited about everything, such as a huge Barbie airplane and THE Furby (mine was called Coco and it was pink). But they're not quite as practical as the gifts I've received as an adult :D 

Favourite Christmas scent?
The Pomander ball! Basically it's an orange pierced by cloves. The scent is Christmas itself!

Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
As I said above, we celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve in Finland, so yes, a lot of traditions. In the morning we watch The Snowman and a program called (loosely translated) Santa's hotline (children call Father Christmas, who answers the phone on telly, how exciting :D ). Then we go to the sauna, chill, have dinner, open pressies, have dessert and chill some more. 

What tops your tree?
A small silvery star. We only have a mini tree in our mini flat so the star is fairly mini too :) 

What's the best part of Christmas for you?
I have two words: Family & Food. Nothing beats them <3

Now I shall start my weekend with a huge bag of pick'n'mix sweeties and watch a film. Have a lovely weekend everybody <3

Emma xxx

PS. Next week I'll have a special little guest aka the newest addition to the family visiting my blog hihi <3 I can't wait!!
