Christmas Haul

Thankfully, we were able to spend another Christmas together (due to the slightly later occurrence of Russian Christmas, more on that later) and enjoy the day with family and friends. As you can imagine, the day consisted of spending hours sorting out the house and preparing the food, several minutes eating it and feeling like a beached whale afterwards. We were also lucky to get some pretty sick presents, which we hope you will enjoy seeing :P

You probably won't see us until 2015 but a resolution will definitely be to try and blog more instead of procrastinating and being inconsistent. We also now have a Bloglvin account (here) and a Lookbook account (here), so make sure to  check out some of our latest OOTDs. 
We hope you had a good Christmas and will see you in the New Year!

Winter Makeup + Music Favourites

Eye cream - Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream 
Moisturiser - Korres Wild Rose 24-hour Moisturising and Brightening Cream (great for a more healthy-looking complexion and smells great)
Mask - Origins Clear Improvements Active Charcoal Mask to clear pores (non-drying and you skin will feel amazing afterwards)
Serum - Murad Perfecting Serum (You need this! Completely non-greasy oil which you can incorporate within your daily skincare routine. Add a pump to your moisturiser and your skin will feel silky smooth even throughout the cold winter months) 

Blush - e.l.f. Blush in Mellow Mauve (great autumn/winter colour with subtle highlight)
Highlighter - Too Faced Highlighting Powder Duo (champagne colour when mixed together)
Contour Palette - Smashbox Cosmetics (great for travel with a perfect cool coloured contour powder, warm coloured bronzer and matte highlight)
Lipstick - Dior lipstick in 386 Mauve Fascination (pinky/purply undertone with subtle sheen)
Lipgloss - Bite Beauty Lush Fruit Lip Gloss in Currant (very moisturising and an amazing autumn/winter colour)
Lip liner - Sephora Retractable Waterproof Lip Liner in Mauve (perfect for Kylie Jenner looking lips! Stays on all day but is still so moisturising)
Eyelashes - Eyelure Pro-Lash Short, Medium and Long Length Individual Lashes (ideal for adding volume and length. Add a couple on top on your lash strip where extra "attention" is needed)
Eyeshadow palette - Too Faced Chocolate Bar ( wide range of matte and shimmery colours. Great for travel and smells like chocolate! Who wouldn't want that?)
Mascara - Shu Uemura Stretch Xtreme Waterproof Mascara (AMAZING! One of the best mascaras that I've tried in a long time. Give your lashes volume and hold a curl for an unbelievable amount of time. Makes your eyes look awake and so much bigger!)
Brow pencil - Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Taupe (Makes your brow game so strong. All I need to say)
Eyeliner - Sephora 24h Wear Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Black Lace (super thin sponge applicator helps create a very thin line, but at the same time very buildable)

Brushes/Makeup Bag
Brushes and makeup Bag - MAC Cosmetics Mineralise Brush Kit (very useful brushes come in a gorgeous case for an amazing price! Includes Duo Fibre Face Brush, Short Duo Fibre Brush, Duo Fibre Tapered Blending Brush and a Duo Fibre Eyeshadow Brush. The handles are short making this set ideal for travelling!)

From rap to electronic to boy bands, here are some of our music picks this winter. We hope you enjoy them and have a happy holiday
