We don’t have a Sephora where I live so I don’t often get the chance to try their products. My mum went on Holiday a few months ago and found this little face mask triplet for me. I was so excited when I saw it because I just love face masks and I was really excited to try them.
ASOS is the perfect space to find some amazing Christmas presents. I bought all my presents for my family on ASOS this and last year. I mean most of you know that I order way too much stuff from there but I love everything I got so it’s fine.
I really wanted to share some of the things I got from ASOS with you to give you some gift ideas. But not everything I mention is from ASOS so you don’t have to be as ASOS obsessed as I am to buy these things.
Salt and Pepper Pineapple shaker
My mum loves pineapple so this little present is perfect for her and anybody who has a little pineapple obsession. These are Salt and Pepper Pineapple shaker. They look super cute and I would totally use them every single day!
Perfume – Rituals
I also think that perfume is a great present. Rituals has some amazing scents and the little perfumes are just too adorable. I am using mine on a daily basis and if you have a friend who loves Rituals products you are good to go with this.
Paint – the arty friend
I started painting again in November and it became one of my fav things to do. A lot of you said that you enjoyed painting as well so I think giving someone paint as a present is amazing. You can buy it really inexpensive in stores like TEDi (for the german ones). You can also buy nice picture frames there for a really good price and everybody has an arty friend am I right?
Intax mini films
This is a little bit more expensive but pro-tip you can buy them for a really good price on eBay. I love to use my Instax mini camera but of course buying films can get quiet expensive so receiving a film is the best thing ever. And you can have a little photoshoot with your friend right after you got them. (ASOS has some great films too)
Books – for the bookworm
Reading is such a nice thing to do, I absolutely love it. I always get super excited when I get a new book and I always try to remember the person I got it from and keep them up-to-date with how I like it.
I know not everybody loves receiving socks but I love to give them as a present. I gave multiple socks to my mum and dad and I received so many from my friends. I never spent money on nice socks so it’s really nice to receive some as a present.
These are so addictive!!! I absolutely love to colour-in my cacti one and I think this is one of the best presents to give. You can buy so many different ones of them and ASOS has some great ones in stock.
I know not everybody is as face mask obsessed than I am but it’s so nice to treat yourself and I gave a face mask to my friend last year and I loved receiving her photos of her using it. You can buy so many different masks and also some really good but inexpensive ones, so this is the perfect present for anybody.
Fairy lights and disposable cameras
Another thing I think is so nice to receive are fairy lights. Everybody loves these so getting them for Christmas is just perfect. I also wanted to mention disposable cameras quickly. I am planning on doing a own post for them but they are so much fun to use and the perfect gift. I know polaroid cameras are so on trend right now, but the perfect alternative for a nice but not so expensive photo shoot are these cameras.
I hope you enjoyed this post. Let me know which gift idea you liked the best.
I have no idea how this month passed already but it’s time for my monthly favourites.
I’ve discovered a new app this month called ‘Snoopy pop’. It is the most fun and addicting app ever, but as I said so much fun to play. My mum downloaded it and after watching her a couple of days playing it, I had to get it myself. It’s free and I would recommend checking it out, but it’s really addicting, so maybe don’t ;).
Sheet face masks! I’ve been obsessed with them since I tried one. I’ve done a review on this Balea Aqua sheet mask, so if you want check it out. But honestly, they are incredible. My skin was really dry and they helped me so much.
I’ve tried quiet a few face masks this month and one of my favs was this one from l’oréal. I love their face masks and when they released a blue face mask I freaked out and had to get it the next day. To me there’s nothing more fun than lying on the couch with a blue face.
And I discovered another amazing face mask, like such a good one! But you have to wait a few days to see which one I mean.
And because I am face mask crazy I wanted to share a little PRO-face mask tip with you. I loved using two face mask at the same time this month. I applied two mask and looked like a zebra, which I loved so much.
Zoe realised new Zoella Beauty products a few weeks ago and I tried them this month. My favourite product is her cream scrub. It is so amazing and I am always so excited to use it!
I found the most amazing pants this month. They are striped. They are soft. They are just perfect! The amazing Zoe aka Zoella showed them in one of her vlogs and I immediately knew that I have to get them. I am so happy with them and can’t stop wearing them.
I’ve also been loving my short dungarees this past month and I loved that so many of you liked them too in my ‘Get the look – Zoella’ post, which was one of my favourite posts I uploaded this month.
I do not own the rights to Zoe’s images.
I’ve been so obsessed with a pudding called Paula this month. It’s a combination of vanilla and chocolate pudding and it’s just the best thing ever!!
I also tried the new ‘Magnum’ this month. It’s basically a ‘classic’ in a box but it tastes really good and is quiet exciting. I mean, the advertising for this is amazing. When I saw the spot on the tv I immediately wanted to get it. Sadly it’s quiet expensive.
I’ve also been obsessed with green apples, nectarines and cheese croissants.
I’ve been loving quiet a few songs this month.
- Classic – MTKO
- America’s sweetheart – Elle King
- When will my life begin – tangled
- Moonlight – Grace Vanderwaal
- Moonlight BKAY Remix – Grace Vanderwaal
- Die Young – Kesha
- This is our song – Camp Rock 2
- Look what you made me do – Taylor Swift
- Ships in the night – Mat Kearney
This month the 4th season of the Originals started in Germany. I love this series so much!! It’s one of my favs and I am enjoying it so so much. I am looking forward to every Thursday and it’s literally just the best series atm.
I’ve also been so obsessed with watching ‘Gilmore Girls’. I love this series more than anything and I enjoy watching it so much. I am really loving season 6 at the moment, but every season is just great.
If you followed my blog you will know that I am super Sunflower obsessed. This month was the month of sunflowers and I am just sunflower-crazy. Also thank you so much for all your love on my sunflower post and tag.
When I was on holiday we watched athletics and I’ve been obsessed with Gina Lückenkemper who started for Germany.
We also discovered a new tv show called ‘Chopped junior’. It was so much fun watching little children cook.
And I’ve been quiet obsessed with watching AGT auditions… but they are so much fun to watch.
Of course spending time with my family was the best thing. We were on holiday and had such a great time. I am so happy to have such an amazing family.
What are your August favourites? Let me know in the comments below.
Prepare yourself! I was scrolling through Instagram and saw the advertisement for a face mask. I normally don’t pay much attention to them on Insta but this one got my attention. Insta was so kind and let me know that there’s a new face mask from l’oréal. I love l’oréal face masks. I’ve spoken about them on my blog before. I also love trying new face masks and I love a good coloured face mask because I think it adds so much fun to the whole process.
L’oréal realised a blue face mask. A BLUE face mask?! That sounded so amazing to me that I bought it the next day. I was so excited to try this mask and I really wanted to share it with you.
I really love coloured face masks. I love looking like crazy whilst doing them. And it is so much fun when the postman rings you whilst you look like an alien, not. I also love the look of my family when I turn around with a green, red, white and now blue face.
My skin is a little bit bad at the moment. I don’t know why but I have quiet a few spots. This mask is against blackheads and impurities. It contains three different forms of clay and seaweed. So this mask is what I needed.
This mask has a really smooth texture. It applies really nice to your skin like a thick face cream.
I love the colour of the mask. I love blue and I love that the blue really shows off on your face.
It feels like a normal face mask. It isn’t warm and doesn’t feel weird on your skin. A good nice face mask feeling.
The face mask doesn’t have a heavy smell. It smells pretty neutral to me, but as I said before describing smells isn’t my biggest strength.
I really like this face mask. I’ve only used it a couple of times when this post is going live, so I can’t say if it does what it says, but my skin feels really good after it and much nicer. I love love the blue colour and it’s for sure one of my new favourite face masks.
Did you try this mask? Let me know what you think of it in the comments below.
