Avon “Luck” for Her Eau de Parfum-review

ABOUT THE PRODUCT :

Sparkling citrus and luscious berries blended with creamy white florals and warm sandalwood.

  • Top: Pink Pepper
  • Heart: Nutmeg
  • Base: Sandalwood Essence

My thoughts :

I got this perfume for myself as a Christmas gift. The price was 4.99 euro for 30ml, so very affordable.

Packaging

I got the 30 ml version, so the packaging is average. It’s a solid glass bottle(a little bit heavy and that’s amazing). The 50 ml bottle is MUCH cuter(it has a bow on it), but the cardboard box of this one is such good quality(very sturdy), I’m impressed.

Quality and Scent

The quality of the perfume is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! It stays on my skin a whole day, like around 8h. But on my clothes, it stays even longer, like 24h. I’m so happy with it. The scent is great too, it’s sweet but not overbearing. I love Sandalwood and you can really smell in this perfume.

December Bullet Journal- yes,I’m doing it again!

Hello, My Darlings! How are you all doing? Hope this week started amazingly. So…I’m doing it again. Guess Bullet Journaling is my new hobby now. I tried Buju for the second time last month(you can find it here) and it really worked for me.

Let’s see my spreads for the month.

Disclaimer – I’m bad at art
TITLE PAGE

This month my theme was Christmas! I’m so excited about Christmas…you have no idea. So for the title page, I decided to do Christmas trees and little snowflakes.

THE SPREAD 

For the weekly spread, I decided to do minimalistic Christmas lights. I really liked how it turned out.

Christmas Gift List 

Christmas is near…and of course, planning gifts is important. How you can see I’m already writing something in those little tags.

KDRAMA-TRACKER

I did this Kdrama-tracker last month and it worked A-M-A-Z-I-N-G-L-Y! I loved keeping track of everything I watched.

MY THOUGHTS 

PLOT

It’s a mystery/romance drama and to be honest I didn’t care about the romance at all. I liked the plot, this whole “future seeing” thing was amazing! The first 3 episodes were my favorites, so many twists, and turns. Lee Jong Suk did a great job in this drama ,I loved watching him. Loved the family dynamics and the parallel story lines.

THE CHEMISTRY BETWEEN OUR MAIN COUPLE(S)?

Ahhhh…it was okay,it felt like Suzy tried too hard at times ,but that’s my only complaint. To be honest I reaaalllyyy didn’t care about the romance,the cases and mystery was something I was invested in.

A Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses #1) by Sarah J. Maas- Book review

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

Feyre’s survival rests upon her ability to hunt and kill – the forest where she lives is a cold, bleak place in the long winter months. So when she spots a deer in the forest being pursued by a wolf, she cannot resist fighting it for the flesh. But to do so, she must kill the predator and killing something so precious comes at a price …

Dragged to a magical kingdom for the murder of a faerie, Feyre discovers that her captor, his face obscured by a jewelled mask, is hiding far more than his piercing green eyes would suggest. Feyre’s presence at the court is closely guarded, and as she begins to learn why, her feelings for him turn from hostility to passion and the faerie lands become an even more dangerous place. Feyre must fight to break an ancient curse, or she will lose him forever.

You Belong: Devotions & Prayers for an Uncertain Heart – Book review

Hello, My Darlings! How are you all doing? Today we are starting something different. One of my New Years’ resolutions was getting deeper in my faith, so I have decided every other Sunday I will share with you some Christianity related content I’m enjoying (like online sermons, books or podcasts). If that’s not your cup of tea, that’s totally okay…I have lots of different posts you will enjoy!(like this one “Function of Beauty” Shampoo and Conditioner -UnBiased Review ). Today I want to share with you this beautiful devotional I got for a review from NetGalley.

Let’s dive into my review!

In each devotional reading, you will encounter the bountiful blessings and grace of your Creator, while coming to trust His purposeful plan for you in this world.

I’m actually blown away by how beautiful this devotional is! The design of the cover and on the actual pages is gorgeous. This is an “open and go” kind of devotional, the prayers are short and sweet, perfect for people who are beginning they’re walk with God! The messages are so well thought thru and help us to connect more with God. I’m really really impressed with this devotional! There are no dates, so you can start whenever you want. I would love to get the physical copy, this will go on my birthday wishlist (I right now have the ebook version). I would definitely encourage you to get the physical copy because it’s definitely worth it!

“My Reading Habits” -book tag

Tenth_Doctor_HelloHello, my darlings! How are you all doing? Hope this week was great for you. This week was very lazy for me, It’s crazy hot here and the only thing I can do(without getting too hot) is eat ice cream and read(and watch youtube videos, lots of them). So I decided it would be fun to do a tag about my reading habits !Let’s start.

QUESTION #1: DO YOU HAVE A CERTAIN PLACE AT HOME FOR READING?

My bed or on the couch in my mom’s room.

Reading-in-bed

QUESTION #2: BOOKMARK OR A RANDOM PIECE OF PAPER?

Both! Whatever I have near me ,but I do like beautiful bookmarks .

FXyQ

QUESTION #3: CAN YOU STOP READING ANYTIME YOU WANT OR DO YOU HAVE TO STOP AT A CERTAIN PAGE, CHAPTER, PART, ECT.?

I usually need to end the chapter or even the whole book, I just need to know how the end or I can’t sleep.

giphy (19)

QUESTION #4: DO YOU EAT OR DRINK WHILE READING?

I drink tea while reading, no food near my books

5qt47gz

QUESTION #5: CAN YOU READ WHILE LISTENING TO MUSIC/WATCHING TV?

not really, sometimes I can..if the book is very interesting.

giphy (20)

QUESTION #6: ONE BOOK AT A TIME, OR SEVERAL AT ONCE?

I try reading one book at a time, but sometimes the books I started just pile up and I’m just surrounded with unread but started books.

tumblr_inline_ootloa21811uy30m9_500

QUESTION #7: READING AT HOME OR EVERYWHERE?

Home or on a bus!

reading-on-the-train-gif

QUESTION #8: READING OUT LOUD OR SILENTLY IN YOUR HEAD?

Silently in my head. Reading is my quiet time.

read+classic+film+GIF+by+Film+Society+of+Lincoln+Center-downsized_large

QUESTION #9: DO YOU READ AHEAD OR SKIP PAGES?

I do skip pages if the book is boring. But I try not to do it.

read-and-smile-gif

QUESTION #10: BREAKING THE SPINE OR KEEPING IT NEW?

This one is hard…let’s say both. I do like how good books look new, but it’s easier to read when the spine is broken in.

tumblr_inline_nre1hbfjic1sqw2t1_500

QUESTION #11: DO YOU WRITE IN BOOKS?

No!Never.I hate writing in a book..just in textbooks(but they are meant for it)
