Christmas tag

I came across a nice Christmas tag on YouTube so I decided to give this tag a try! You can find this tag here. 🎄🌟

1. What is your favourite Christmas Movie?
To be honest, I don’t really have a favourite Christmas movie. I’ve watched Home Alone and it’s such a funny movie but I wouldn’t say that it’s my favourite movie.

2. Do you have a favourite Christmas song?
Just like I mentioned above, I don’t really have a favourite Christmas song. Don’t get me wrong, I still love Christmas and all, but I don’t have a favourite movie or a favourite song. But you can always let me know what your favourite is!

3. When do you put up your Christmas tree?
In Belgium and in the Netherlands, we have ‘Sinterklaas’. In the Netherlands he ‘visits’ everyone on the 5th of December and in Belgium he visits us on the 6th. So for me and my family, it’s a tradition that we put up our Christmas tree after ‘Sinterklaas’. 

. Do you peak at gifts or do you like a surprise?
I love surprises, but I still want to know what I’m going to get. I’m a bit stuck between both options haha.

. Who would you like to kiss under the mistletoe?
I would kiss my boyfriend, duhh! But in Belgium, we don’t really have the mistletoe tradition.

. Do you have any Christmas traditions?
We don’t really have Christmas traditions. We celebrate Christmas Eve with my boyfriend’s father of mother, then Christmas itself we celebrate with my family and we celebrate another day of Christmas on the 26th with my boyfriend’s father or mother. It depends on whether his father or mother wants to celebrate on the 24th or the 26th.

. What will you be wearing on Christmas day?

Probably a dress or a skirt. I haven’t chosen anything yet, but definitely something black. I think I’m going to do something extra with my make-up though. I think I’m going to do some glitter and bold lips!

. What does Christmas day look like for you?
Like I mentioned in the ‘Christmas traditions’ question, I celebrate Christmas for 3 days. Most of the time we only open presents on the 25th. But overall we just eat food and hang around with the family.

. Have you ever had any Christmas day disasters?
I can’t think of any disaster, sorry!

10. What would you like for Christmas? 
I have a Christmas wish list on my blog, so make sure to check it out!

14. What has been your highlight of 2017?
That I finally talked to a psychologist, that I was finally brave enough to open up to a professional. I know this might be a little selfish to say as my ’highlight of 2017’, but I think that this is an important step.

15. Will you be making any resolutions for 2018?
Probably not. I’ve never made NY’s resolutions because I know that I do not stick to them.

How I decorate my room for Christmas & New Year

Like I mentioned in my Halloween room decorations post, I love decorating my room. For Christmas I like to decorate my room with a small Christmas tree, different kinds of tinsel, baubles, and some little snow flakes.

When you enter my room, you can directly see my little Christmas tree. I decorated it with silver, pink and black baubles, a silver tinsel and a snow flake on top. Underneath the Christmas tree there are some little snow flakes.

I like to decorate my book shelves with tinsel. I also decorate my star string lights with a small tinsel just to give it something extra.

And the last thing that I do is decorate the rest of my room with all the other baubles I have left. I have 1 big Harry Potter bauble so that one is situated with my Harry Potter books and movies. Then I have some small silver baubles that are everywhere!

I hope you guys like this short post on how I decorate my room! 🎄🌟

Silver Christmas/New Year's make-up look | Tutorial

This is already my second look and I’m so excited for Christmas and NY! This silver make-up look is such an easy but also classy make-up look. The only tricky part of this look is the winged liner. If you’re not a pro in winged eyeliner, you can always skip that step and do the rest of the look.
I wanted to create a silver look because it’s not too much but also really beautiful for Christmas or NY. I paired it with a red lip because that’s something common for Christmas or NY and I thought it looked nice with the look. 

1. First things first: prime you eyelids! And set it with a light eyeshadow (I forgot to put a cute snow flake on the light shade, sorry!).

2. Use a light-brown/greyish eyeshadow in the crease.

3. Use a silver glitter shade. I went for the Nyx Prismatic Shadows in Smoke & Mirror, but you can go for a lighter shade.

4. Use a liquid liner to create a winged liner – yes I bought a new one 😉

5. Use a silver liner in your waterline to brighten your eyes and to give it something extra.

6. Use mascara – preferably waterproof because you’ll be crying and laughing the entire time! 

7. Put on some  false lashes. 

8. Highlight your entire face – I used the Essence winter collection one.

9. And put on some red lipstick to make the look complete! 

I hope you guys love this look and will recreate it! 🎄🌟
