Maybe you have already guessed from my previous post what this year’s Christmas recipes could be? Starbucks brought back four Christmas beverages this season and I wanted to create a cake recipe for each Red Cup flavor. To make it more fun and festive, I created a cake ball recipe so you can eat and enjoy your favorite Starbucks flavor with your coffee at home.
I have a confession to make: I’m obsessed with candles. I go a bit crazy when buying candles but I also have a problem with burning new candles! I don’t know why it takes me so long getting over myself and actually burning them.
I’m still feeling the Christmas spirit at least when I’m taking my baths! :D
I was so happy when I still found some Lush goodies from their Christmas collection on sale! It has been a long time since I’ve treated myself to Lush products. Lush bath bombs are quite addictive but also pricy, and it is quite hard to restrain yourself when everyone is raving about them online. You can guess my excitement when I found some of their bath bombs 50% off.
This year Soap & Glory came out with the ‘Yule Monty’ gift set. It is THE ultimate Soap & Glory gift set. The biggest and most expensive one you could get this year. But Christmas came a little earlier when Boots offered it for less than half the original price (for £27, normally it is £60) just one week before Christmas.
I hope you all survived the festivities! :)
A little while ago, my mom and I finally managed to find time to get a complimentary hand and arm massage at Jo Malone (I had received the invitation for my birthday in January). I took my mom with me for an afternoon of scent consultation and pampering with champagne. It was pure bliss and we both enjoyed it a lot! It was really nice to relax and be able to try all different kinds of perfumes and body crèmes. It was also interesting to learn about layering different Jo Malone fragrances. For my left arm I chose Black Bay body crème with Orange Blossom perfume and for my right arm, I tried Blue Agave body crème with Jasmine & Mint perfume. I really liked the combination on my right arm, the left one was a bit too fruity for my taste.
