Make your room ready for Fall/Winter

I love watching room tours on Youtube and reading
interior blogs so this post is going to be about how you can
make your room ready for fall/winter!
Cozy room
Add many different pillows on your bed. I picked
earth toned colors, which I think gives the room some warmth.
Don't be afraid to mix and match the pillows!

Who doesn't love candles?
They make a huge difference in your room and
they add a nice smell. What I love the most
about fall and winter is the candles!

Of course you will need a blanket to
make your room cozy. Pick one that is 
soft so when it gets really cold you can always
cuddle up in the blanket.

I think pictures add a character to your
room. Put a picture of something you love
and that inspires you!

My lip balms

In my previous post, I wrote about how you 
can beat the cold, so in this post i thought I would
write about the lips balms I have been using.
Starting from right...

Blistex Lip Medex
The first time I tried this lip balm, I really liked it.
My lips weren't as chapped as they were, but
after using it for one week, my lips were just more and more
chapped. I still like to use it when my lips are super dry 
 but if I keep using it for a long time, it doesn't do 
any good. I will rate this lip balm

Weleda Everon Lip Balm
I really like this lip balm and it works really well.
It doesn't completely leave my lips chapped-free but it 
works rather well. It's moisturizing and I usually put it on
every 2-3 hours. I will rate this lip balm

Blistex Medicated Lip Balm
This lip balm worked ok for me. It didn't
leave my lips very dry but it didn't leave my lips chapped-free.
It will not work for me this winter, since my
lips tend to get really dry so f you have really dry lips, this lip balm may 
not be the right lip balm for you. I will rate this lip balm

Labello Med Protection
To be honest, I have never really liked Labello,
but I needed a new lip balm and I had tried so many
that I thought it wouldn't hurt to try this one.
It did not work well for me. I felt like I had to constantly put the lip balm
on, so my lips wouldn't dry out!
So I will probably not buy any lip balms from Labello again.
I will rate this lip balm.

Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm
This is the first lip balm I have bought from
Burt's bees, and let me tell you, I wasn't at all disappointed.
It smells so good, it has a strong peppermint smell, which kinda reminds
me of Christmas. It's super moisturizing and my lips are so much better
after using it.
I will rate this lip balm

Beat the cold!

Where I live it's already getting pretty cold.
My skin is rather dry so when it starts to get
cold, my skin gets even dryer.
I thought I would give you some tips
on how to beat the cold.

Number 1
Drink water
It's so important to drink enough water.
You should drink about 2 liters of water
everyday. If you are constantly using 
moisturizers on your skin, you should
check if you are drinking enough water.

      Number 2          
Make sure you don't lick your lips
   and that your hands are completely dry
  when you have washed them. This
    will prevent your lips and hands getting dry

Number 3
Find a good moisturizer that is good
for your skin. I have a moisturizer for my face,
hands, lips and of course I use a body butter.

So these are the tips I have for
you, hope they are helpful!

My favorite YouTube beauty channels!

People might think i'm addicted to YouTube beauty videos.
They might be right, because I think i watch them everyday.
People also might find it strange to watch someone on the
computer talking about their favorite makeup products,
and watch them putting on their makeup but I love it!
I love discovering new beauty gurus, so I thought I would
show you all of my favorite beauty gurus!
(they are not in any particular order)


She was the first beauty guru I ever watched
and she is just adorable. You have to 
watch her videos, she is the queen of the beauty
gurus (I think)

Tanya Burr

She does great makeup tutorials,
and she really knows what she's
doing. When I going out and I don't know
how i'm going to wear my makeup, I check out her
videos for inspiration.


I love her videos, she does really
great videos about fashion and beauty.
I love her watching her favorites!


She also makes really great videos about
fashion and beauty. I love her
style and her hauls.


I also love her style, but she doesn't do
many makeup tutorials but she does
great fashion and beauty hauls.

These are my favorite beauty gurus
( although I'm subscribed to many, many
other beauty channels)
Hope you enjoyed it!

September Favorites

September Favorites
I know it's a while since my last post
and I've been meaning to do this post for a week now.
So finally i'm doing it, so here it is, my September favorites.

I have been wanting the Dot by Marc Jacobs perfume, forever.
It's a bit pricey and it smells so good, I couldn't resist buying it.

I use the Maybelline BB cream everyday. It's great
beacause it saves me time in the morning. It's also
really moisturizing which is really important for me because
my skin gets really dry when it's cold outside.

I looove candles, it makes my room so cozy.
I have been using the candles from Ikea,
in vanilla. It smells so good.

My last favorite is high socks.
The high socks look great when you are wearing
boots, plus they're warm!
