The Handmade Flower Necklace Giveaway ended yesterday and now is the moment you all have been waiting for. Thank you to everyone who entered, I wish I could make you all win. And a huge thank you to our lovely sponsor NT Handmade Jewelry for creating such gorgeous pieces.
I, for one, cannot live without a highlighter. They add such a beautiful glow to the face. But like all things, it is all about using them correctly on the right places. If overdone, there are chances you are going to end up looking like a metallic disco ball or even worse, super greasy.
So, here is a very quick guide to introduce you into the world of highlighters.
Are you a
book freak? Then, you’d be over the moon to meet Dawn who goes by Lone Alaskan
Gypsy, author of the mysterious ‘A Tundra Tale’. She lives in a small Yup’ik
Eskimo Village in Western Alaska – along the lovely Yukon River (ooh she sounds
like a fairytale character herself). She spends her days gardening, selling plants,
making crafts, writing, fishing, sewing, baking, taking care of pets, fostering
children and fur trapping. Whoa this lady does it all, doesn't she? And if you
don’t already know she is OBSESSED with writing.
How many of you anxiously wait for the Favorites of The Year
post? Me, me, me! Reading about people’s must-haves, secretly starting my new
year wishlist, scouting the makeup counters and hoarding for the next year’s
Hits and Misses, is all so exhilarating. Although I am a tad bit late in joining the favorites bandwagon.
To be honest, on one hand, I stumbled upon some
I-can-never-live-without stuff in 2014. On the other hand, some categories stay as repetitive
as before (hint:foundation). And of
course, we also cannot forget those products that did nothing besides making a
hole in my pocket.
Cold Winter nights call for freshly baked breads. This combined with a cup of steaming hot chocolate is a match made in heaven. And oh add to the scene, you with your favorite chick-lit book, in your most-comfy pajamas and a warm quilt..and let's stop life right there!
Banana bread is perfect for breakfast, as a dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream and a quick snack when you have nothing to fill your tummy with. I read the recipe to come ages ago over the internet, and quickly it went into my virtual recipe book. It is slightly adapted but the original link is unfortunately lost among the trillions on Google, which I will put in here, whenever I locate it.
