Loa cat was helping me pack presents for Emulsive Secret Santa.
Meaning it took at least twice as long as it would have without his "assistance".
But it's ok, he's a good friend and I'm always glad for his company :).

Tacky Christmas sweater time

Close-up of my sweater. H&M does the best tacky Christmas sweaters I feel. And I like how they have € 9,99 ones, so they don't break the bank either :).

Because there is no such thing as an Adventure Time ornament, and I felt bad for Bert thus not having one, I decided to make him one instead. A Fubblegum one, of course, as that's his favourite ship.
I made the drawing myself, the pink papery bits are actually fillings from a Too Faced box (no joke) and the customisable heart shaped bauble is from Flying Tiger Copenhagen. Or Tiger, depending on where you live.
I gave it to Bert as a Sinterklaas present, which is on December 6, he was very happy with it, which makes me happy in turn ^^.

Isn't this just the cutest calendar page!
The quote translates to "cats leave paw prints on your heart". Which is totally true and apt!
I feel like this calendar has really saved the best page for last. And that says a lot, because October was a Halloween page!

Too Faced, Melted Matte in Gingerbread Man

Day 242: Friday, December 8 2017
Camera: Canon EOS 700D, 18-55mm Canon lens
I like my Christmas mug, I love gingerbread, I really love that lipstick: Too Faced's Melted Matte in Gingerbread.
I wrote a review about it, which you can read here.
The gingerbread is home made, using the kit from Dille & Kamille (I'm not THAT into baking!), the lipstick was a birthday gift from Charlotte and the mug is from Maisons du Monde.
My first choice for a Christmas mug would have been the Sass & Belle gingerbread man one I saw on asos, but shipping included it would be over €15 whilst this one was under €4 in the shop (can't remember the exact price, it was €3,something). So yeah.

I feel like I should have spent more time on figuring out the blend on that wet red pigment (it really was a third time's a charm kinda thing) instead of faffing about with my useless white liquid liner by essence to draw candy canes on my face. I think it's time to get my hands on a pot of M.A.C pure white pigment.

Viktor & Rolf - Spicebomb

Day 243: Saturday, December 9 2017
Camera: Canon EOS 700D, 18-55mm Canon lens
I finally had some time to photograph my extra Spicebomb bottles. There was a mega deal on sephora.fr a few weeks ago, and I basically got 110ml, over two bottles (90ml + 20ml) of Spicebomb for €78, shipping included. If you know that a regular 50ml bottle is about €65 in store, you know that deal was far too good to pass up!

Outfit: 9.12.2017

Outfit of the day:
It was very windy when we were taking photos. To be honest, I had to wake up far too early for painting class and just threw something together without paying attention whether it matched or not.

Sweater: Friendly Oak
Top: Primark
Skirt: made it myself

Today it snowed, so I took the Paramat out to take some split frame analog photos.
That does mean you'll have to check back later to see today's photo.

Outfit: 10.12.2017

Outfit of the day:
There's nothing wrong with the print of the skirt btw, it started raining just as I got outside, and a raindrop got just in front of the lens. Which is why my skirt looks a little faded. Bad rain, no cookie!
