Happy Postcrossing

Hi everyone!

Today I have something completely different for you: something I've never done before on my blog! But I'm really excited about it, so even though it's very different from anything I've ever done before, I hope you guys enjoy it anyway! :)

I have made a video of my postcard collection! I started collecting postcards when I joined Postcrossing about 3 years ago. I find writing postcards very relaxing, and it's so lovely to find pretty cards from all around the world in my mailbox :) Some of you probably think that collecting postcards is really lame and not very cool haha, but I really don't care because I love it. I'm not afraid of admitting I'm a dork in some ways, so I am very proud and excited to show my entire collection to everyone!

Vlogging is something I've never tried before, so it was definitely a little scary for me, but if there's one thing I've learned over the years, it's to never let fear get in the way of trying something new, so I did it anyway :) My filming and editing skills aren't that great yet, but I hope you all enjoy my video, and if you liked it, please give it a thumbs up on YouTube so I know if I should make more videos or not! Of course you can also leave a comment below here on my blog, because I'd love to know what you guys think!

Have you ever done Postcrossing before? Or do you collect anything fun? :)

New Ugg Scufette slippers

It's been pretty cold lately, so I'm getting a lot of use out of my new Ugg Scufette slippers. They were a Christmas present, and I've been wearing them non-stop at home. The exterior is made of very soft suede, and it has a sheepskin collar with a wool interior, and that's why these are definitely the warmest slippers I've ever owned! :)

How do you keep your feet warm in the winter?

Collective make up + videogame haul

Happy new year everyone! I wish you all a year full of blessings, health, love, and a lot of fun! I'd love to hear all about your goals for 2017, so please let me know all about your exciting plans for the new year in a comment below!

A couple of days ago my online MAC order arrived, and over the last few days I also bought some other make up products that I wanted to share, so I decided to do a collective haul post for you guys :) I am aware that I haven't done a "what I got for Christmas" post yet, but as I've been away quite a lot recently, I haven't had time to do that yet. I am so sorry, but I promise I will do it sometime in this upcoming week, as I'll have a lot more free time, and I hope that's okay! :)

However, I will share a tiny little part of what I got for Christmas this year, as I bought myself a new PS4 as a Christmas present to myself! :) If you've been reading my blog for a longer time, you'll know that I've had a PS3 for years now, and I love it so much, but I just really felt like I needed to upgrade to the PS4. I couldn't really use it yet though during Christmas because I had so many people to visit and stuff. I will include the games I got with my make up haul, so please keep reading if you're interested in seeing what I got!

1. MAC Prep + Prime Fix + spray | Shop
I completely ran out of my beloved MAC Fix + spray, so I had to order a new bottle. I love how dewy it makes my foundation looks, so it's definitely my go-to setting spray.

2. Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in "Taupe" | Shop
Because I naturally have such light (white-ish) blonde hair, it's very difficult for me to find eyebrow products that I love. My brows and lashes have been my biggest insecurities for as long as I can remember, because they're just not as dark and beautiful as my brunette friends' brows and lashes! Over the years I've used a ton of different brow pens, gels, and powders, but it's been nearly impossible to find colours that look good, so my life literally changed the moment I bumped into Anastasia's taupe products! This colour looks so good on light blonde women like me, and it's available in a lot of different ABH products, of which the Brow Wiz and the Brow Pomade are my favourites. The Brow Pomade I bought, is so easy and fast to apply, and it stays on all day. I've used it everyday for the past year and half, and this is the first time I had to repurchase, so one small jar lasts a long time as well. I really recommend it to everyone!

3. MAC Studio Fix Fluid in "NC10" + Foundation pump | Shop
My favourite foundation! The foundation pump makes it so easy to apply, and this formula stays on all day as well without having to reapply. I love that this foundation is available in such a huge variety of different colours as well.

4. MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in "Soft & Gentle" | Shop
This colour works beautifully as a highlighter. I have a very pale skin, and I find this colour very flattering for me, so I repurchased this after I hit pan on mine!

5. Benefit "Hoola" bronzer | Shop
Such a beautiful, matte bronzer! The only one I've found so far that doesn't make me look like an oompa-loompa. I keep repurchasing this bronzer whenever I hit pan on mine, so I never have to run out of it, that's how much I love it, haha.

6. Velour "Whispie Sweet Nothings" lashes | Shop
I've had these lashes so many times before and I absolutely love them! They're not too thick, but still really long and voluminous. They're also really fluffy, which makes them great for a glamorous look, but still very wearable for an everyday look. I do not wear fake lashes every day, but these are very nice to add some glam to my look.

7. Ardell "Wispies" lashes | Shop
These look super similar to the Velour lashes I bought, but a lot less expensive! To be honest I just wanted a back-up pair that looked similar to my Velour lashes, so I went to the store to see what they had. I've heard of Ardell Wispies before, and I've seen really beautiful looks with these on YouTube and Instagram, but I had no idea they were sold in my town! They're a lot cheaper than my Velour lashes too, so I'm super excited to try these out soon.

8. DUO eyelash adhesive in "Clear" | Shop
This is a very affordable, yet amazing lash glue. It's available in both black and clear, and I have them both. I use the black one whenever I wear eyeliner with fake lashes, and the clear one whenever I apply lashes but I don't have any eyeliner on.

9. PS4 game: "The Last Guardian" | Shop
This game looks really fun, but to be honest I hate the controls.

10. PS4 game: "Rise of the Tomb Raider" | Shop
I only got it yesterday and I didn't have time yet to play, but honestly can't wait. I'm a huge Tomb Raider fan, and I've played a lot of Tomb Raider games in the past, so they're a huge part of my childhood. I played the "new" Tomb Raider on my PS3, so I'm looking forward to start this one soon. I only have to work from 9 till 1 tomorrow, so I'll probably run home and play this asap!

11. PS4 game: "Skyrim" | Shop
I just love Skyrim, and probably always will. I'm thinking of selling my PS3 soon, so I decided to buy it for my PS4 so I can still play it after my PS3 is gone :)
