Merry Chrimbo!

Hello again readers!

Ah, another Christmas came, and went. So much joy, new memories, a lot of excitement (and a lot of people squished into tiny areas!) has happened this year too!

Every year, my dad makes cookies! And a /lot/ of them; chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin, brownie, gooey butter, amish sugar cookies, and sugar cookies. He bakes for days, and they're always yummy! And mum makes spritz cookies and wreaths!

My favourites are brownie, gooey butter, and spritz. I love them!

For Christmas Eve, I like being casual. This year, I bought a new jumper! It has a fox on it, and I couldn't resist since foxes are my favourite animal. I put it over my Converse plaid shirt and wore skinny jeans.

I use so many products to make my look too!

My grandparents, and some of my other family came over for Christmas Eve. We had good food, and had a lot of fun! We exchanged presents, and they left shortly afterwards.

Then, Sarah and I got to open the gifts from my parents!

I got the cutest shooter glass set, with monochromatic skulls! Also, two pairs of skull earrings, and a new grey scarf! Mum and Dad know me so well...

I also got a bunch of boots! The top pair mum  picked up when she was out one day, and the last three I got to pick out from Charlotte Russe. I already broke in one pair, time to break in the rest!

They also got me a few movies, and a few season DVD's (SPN, Teen Wolf, and Firefly!), a tripod, and a new XBox! :D I love it already...

Then Sarah and I exchanged presents:

I was really happy with what she got me, Pacific Rim is one of my favourite movies of all time, and the Internship is such a cute movie (plus, it has Dylan O'Brien in it, double score!). She also got me this really sweet perfume from Rue21. I was eyeing it myself, but wasn't sure I was going to buy it, but she picked it up for me! How sweet is she?

Then it was Christmas day. It's always the most exhausting day of the holidays, because we have to travel quite a bit to see everyone, and then socializing... It's a lot, but it's nice.

Sarah and I are always opposites. I'm usually in black, and she's the princess of light! It's really hilarious how different we are, but similar in some ways too...

My look was dark, but simple!

Hard Candy Nail Polish - Jubilee

Hello again readers!

Quick show of Jubilee by Hard Candy

Jubilee looks like you dipped your fingers in a swamp! It's slimy green, with 'dirt'. You get black glitter, with big black and silver hex glitter, and orange bar glitter. It's disgusting, but in the best of ways.

You need four coats for full opacity, one if you layer over another polish.

The only issue I had with this polish, is that some of the bar glitter would rise off the nail. I just picked those out (though I missed a couple!) and I was able to wear this for a few days before any chipping occurred. 

Thanks for reading!

Maybelline Color Tattoo - Audacious Asphault

Hello again readers!

I started my Maybelline Color Tattoo collection again... I just love the formula for these so much, I can't help but want them all! 

Audacious Asphault is a gunmetal grey colour. I picked this up, because I wanted a dark grey to wear with black liner, and I thought this would be the perfect choice. This is a lot like the Electric Blue that they released with the Metals collection, because you need to apply two layers to get the colour to appear right, otherwise it's streaky!

This isn't the best that I've gotten out of the Color Tattoos, and I'm only a little sad about that, because I still enjoy the color.

Thanks for reading!
