It’s the most beautiful time of the year! Everything around this time is so magical and beautiful. I adore all the beauty of the Christmas Holidays. The stores are all decorated and look so pretty with lights. People are nicer during the Holidays don’t you think? Happy thoughts and love is in the air! My plans for this holiday is to hopefully be able to do VLOGMAS on my Vlog Channel and document everyday in December. I also would like to create content for the beauty Channel. I’ve taken a little break from it but I’m going to plan a video each week starting next week. I’ll be filming my October Favourites and also a Trying on Benefit Cosmetics video which I’m super excited about.

I’m going to be honest and say I haven’t started decorating or shopping for Christmas. Not sure when I will start but hopefully I can plan to buy gifts a little at a time so that gift buying doesn’t become overwhelming. I have many lovely items on my wish list. I would LOVE the NAUGHTY AND NICE MAGIC BOX BEAUTY ADVENT CALENDAR by Charlotte Tilbury,  the LIPPIE COUNTDOWN ADVENT CALENDAR by NYX cosmetics,  I love and dream of having the The Diptyque calendar one day. Why does it have to be SO Expensive! I would love the Lush and Body Shop beauty Calendars as well.

  1. Vlogmas would be so fun! Lots of work but so great to document everything. 🙂
    I’m never in the Holiday mood until at least the end of November… I keep thinking I should TRY to be more festive earlier but I just can’t bring myself to it until around Black Friday time frame.
    The Pixi stuff looks amazing – what a nice array of loot available at Shoppers Drug Mart! I have a bunch of Optimum Points to spend (before they’re converted to PC!) so maybe I’ll splurge on some of those items.

    1. I know how you feel, yes I can’t get really into it until the end of the month. It’s like taking a break from Halloween and then November is my relaxing time before all the Christmas excitement. lol I really LOVE the Pixi eyeshadows and the toner. It is amazing! Enjoy your Optimum points! The best time to cash them in is during the holidays! omg they are going to Convert them to PC?????? omg
