5 FAVOURITE CHRISTMAS THINGS


Since it is the christmas season, I thought it would be a good excuse to list some things that I enjoyed during this festive season. 


1. CHRISTMAS-THEMED WRAPPERS AND CUSTOMISED CARDS
Not too sure if I'm the only one who appreciate the effort of custom-designed gifts but the joy of having something specially designed for a significant person is famously known to be my kinda my thing among my friends. This Christmas, I decided to follow a particular theme with my gifts, I paired with a polka dotted green wrapper and a designed festive card. 


2. CRABTREE & EVELYN BLACKBERRY GREEN TEA
I am a tea person. Period. My favourite is either green or flower tea. Currently, I've been going a little too crazy with Crabtree & Evelyn's tea collection and here I am featuring the Blackberry Green Tea which for some reason isn't always in stock.


3. BURT'S BEES AND YANKEE CANDLE PRODUCTS
Okay let's get real. I came to know about Burt Bees because of its brand packaging. I am really into packagings that display an "organic" look which sorta gives me the impression that the product itself is somewhat "organic". This is a lip balm and a cuticle cream which was given to me by a friend last year.  That reminds me, I'll need to spend some time watching Burt's Buzz , it is basically a movie about the co founder of Burt's Bees.


If you know me well, you'll probably know that I am a huge Yankee Candle fan and I'm very surprised that Yankee Candles aren't famous/known among Malaysians. I light candles every-single-day ever since my friends, Mark and Eden gave me a tart burner for my birthday. Just yesterday, Eden got me this Pomegranate-Flavoured Lip Balm and I think I'm gonna be using this for a while. 


4. CLAIRE ORGANIC'S LUSCIOUS COCOA
I have no idea why is it named luscious cocoa when it doesn't smell anything like cocoa. Again, it is me and the packaging; since it is Christmas so I thought it would be fun to get something small for myself. Luscious Cocoa is a moisturizing body/face balm that gives intense hydration to dry skin.


5. ELIANTO ROSEWOOD NAIL POLISH
What is Christmas without your signature red nails? Yes it is necessary. Elianto's Rosewood is a darker shade of red, close to maroon. So if you are one of those who can't cope with bright-red nails like me, you can always stay in the boundaries of darker shades of red, regardless if its for nails or for the lips. 


These are my 5 favourite things for this Christmas season. I hope this is a good start to my blogging mojo and I am thinking of bringing more beauty content into this site, and also to hopefully boost up my freelance design career as well. 

Thanks for the support, and Merry Christmas.
