I Cannot Do It

So, you know how I said,

” I will be doing #Blogmas & #Vlogmas together”.

I cannot.

I do not have time to do everything.I have a full time job, two blogs, committments,  and a new YouTube channel. It is too much. Soooooooooo,  I decided I will keep posting blog posts whenever I can and also be sharing my vlogmas videos here, in case any of my lovely readers wants to subscribe to my channel or watch my videos.

So, I did a Zara bag haul video which is a review of a few bags/ purses I got from Zara., There are 2 going out bags and two everyday bags.

The haul is here.

I also posted a vlog. You see me walking around my town Chania, Crete. I show your the shops. We do not have malls in Chania, just small local stores. Of course we have chains, but the majority are family businesses. I also go for dinner and I show you what I had.

The Vlog is here.

 

I am editing more videos and I think my video quality is improving. This is a learning process. I really want to hit 100 subscribers by the end of the year cause I cannot get a domain name before I hit 100. It would be great if you helped me out. I will be doing little giveaways during vlogmas, so stay tuned.

Have a lovely day/ night guys. Follow my blog. Connect with me on social media. You can check out my sidebar on ways to connect.

My XMAS Book Gift Guide

Hi everyone!!

Today’s blogmas post is a video about books I will be reading during the Christmas break ( I am a teacher) and some book suggestions.

I like reading romance novels, so light reading. I also like historic novels and books about productivity, business, getting things done and so on.

The books mentioned

(Affliate links)
The Rosie Project & The Rosie Effect:

These are books about a guys search for the perfect girlfriend/ wife. This is a fun/ light hearted book to read.

Bridget Jones mad about the boy

Bridget Jones? This is the latest book and it has nothing to do with the movie. That’s what I’ve been told.
Queen’s Sorrow

Novel about Henry the 8th wives. I have read a few books written by Dunn. They are easy to read.
Girl boss:

This book has been written by the owner of Nasty girls and she talks about the company and how she rose to success/ advice and more.
The Decision book:

If you want to be more productive, read this book. I read it in one night. Yeap. A page turner.
Presence:

I love Amy Cuddy’s TED talk , so I had to get her book. It is about challenging yourself.

For more details about the books, check out my video. Do subscribe to my channel cause I am really tying and I do know I need to improve and get proper filming equipment, bt for the moment, I am testing it out.

Thanks for stopping by.

November favourites: jewelry, beauty, bits & bobs

Hi everyone!!

Time for November faves!!! I made a video where I talk about everything I loved in detail (it’s like 17 mins long), but I thought I’d write a post and share some thoughts in a blog post as well.

Beauty

I am really love the Volume Reveal mascara from Bourjois. It makes my lashes long and I am definitely buying a new one!!

I also liked a new perfume I got from Clinique. It’s the Aromatics white. If you like powder-y scents, you should give this a sniff. It does smell quite strong though. If No5 Chanel & Powder  had a baby, this would be it.

I haven’t really worn this. I have only tried swatching these shadows, but due to cuteness, this one made it in my faves due to enthusiasm. I am talking about the TooFaced Christmas palette. There are 3 small book/ palettes with lots of beautiful shadows and a small sample size mascara.To see the inside, do check out my video.

Skincare

I am using the Korres wild rose brightening face wash. I have reviewed it for my blog and you can read that post here. You can also check it out here. I also like the Sephora Rose face mask sheets.

skincareMy magical sleeping body lotion is called by a Greek brand called Fresh line. It is a calming and cocooning cream. I love this lotion because is smells like vanilla and cinnamon but it is nice (I usually hate vanilla scents). I am actually giving away a travel size bottle and for more information you can watch this video  (giveaway till Friday 2nd).

I am also really happy with the Clinique redness solutions face cream and soothing moisturizing cream. I use both and I love them!!

Bits and bobs

I am loving the Zara top I am wearing in the video. I got loads of compliments about it too. It looks expensive and casual chic and it is in stores at the moment.

One from Zara and one from top shop.❤❤  Finally, I am loving the choker trend. I have bought a few affordable ones from Stradivarius. If you have Stradivarius in your tow, you should check it out for chokers.

This is my monthly favourites video. I have just started making videos and am holding two giveaways. One is for planner girls and there is a lot of stationery. The other one is for the magical sleeping lotion. I hope you like this post and my videos.
