Blogmas Day 24: Christmas Eve Flight to Hong Kong


It is Blogmas Day 24!! Christmas Eve!!
When I first thought about doing Blogmas, it seemed such a challenging idea and I was thinking "will I be able to do it?" Coming up with a topic daily and actually getting down to do it are very different. But here we are!! The end is in sight! My last blogmas post will be tomorrow on Christmas Day.

Blogmas Day 22: Derren Brown: The Specialist


Image from Channel 4/ 4 on Demand website
Last night after finished watching Strictly Come Dancing on BBC1 (Did you watch too? I am such a big fan of the show!!), I wasn't quite ready to go to bed yet, and I suddenly remembered that I haven't yet caught up with the Derren Brown: The Specialist show on Channel 4, which was aired on Friday, but I missed it because I went to the Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park (which was brilliant! You can catch my blog post here).

Blogmas Day 19: The Mighty Oils: Kiehls and Pai


As we are deeper into the winter, indoor heating is up, our skin getting drier. I have been trying out two famous night facial oils at the moment. They both get high praise from beauty bloggers, but before I tried them, I always wonder which one should I get or is it worth to get both?

Blogmas Day 18: December Birchbox *SPOILER ALERT*

*SPOILER ALERT* If you are waiting for your Birchbox and want to keep the surprise til then, please look away NOW (only showing the box cover as a teaser, hee hee..). Otherwise, please read on....

I have subscribed to Birchbox for a few months now.  I don't normally blog about my box because I can never decide when is a good time to reveal my box. Too early, it will ruin the surprises to other people; too late, the post becomes not relevant anymore. However, since it is Blogmas and I basically document about my December life (well, mainly my purchases), so I am doing this quick post as I just received my box yesterday.

Blogmas Day 17: Party on my fingers


Excuse my very short nails and my dry fourth finger
(Nothing seems to be working on my dry cuticles at the moment, arrrgh!)
The polish is very reflective to light
If you don't wear sparkly nails in Xmas, then when? Recently, I have been loving the Maybelline Color Show Brocades in Knitted Gold.

Blogmas Day 10: Rick Stein Live Show 9th December 2013


I couldn't believe it when Rachel Phipps tweeted me to say "Congratulations Georgina! You are the winner of my Rick Stein Live giveaway! Please email me." I remembered I was crossing a busy road while glancing my down my phone (I know, I should never do that again), I was stunned and almost stopped in the middle of the road!

Blogmas Day 8: Sleeping Aid


With the stress that I have been feeling lately (Check out yesterday's post about my favourite on-the-go Stress Relief Aid), falling asleep has becoming a problem too. It takes me a long time to fall asleep, and I would wake up in the middle of the night as well. So I have been looking for products that would help my bedtime routine.

Blogmas Day 5: Dior Creme de Rose Lip Balm



The rumour IS TRUE! Dior Cream de Rose Lip Balm works magic! It is worth £20 for the decent size pot!

For a long time, I was just like all the other beauty bloggers and YouTubers… I have all sorts of lip balms already, do I REALLY need another one? Yes, it's from Dior, but it is £20!! £20 for a lip balm? Really??
