I’ve never been the lucky one who would participate in giveaways and actually win anything. This is why I’ve been so excited that I won the Festive Cocktail Yankee Candlein a giveaway by Tara at The Beauty of Nail Polishin December!Festive Cocktail, as it is called in Europe, is part of theYankee Candle limited edition and in the USA, it goes by the name ofAlpine Martini. It has a very nice, wintery scent. Sweet mountain berries are combined with pine notes that create a lovely atmosphere in the room but are not overpowering. I love it and now I cannot wait to go take a look at the spring limited edition, as far as I saw it on Instagram I may like a few of their new scents!
//Do sedaj nikoli nisem bila med tistimi, ki bi imeli srečo pri nagradnih igrah. Zato sem bila še toliko bolj vesela, ko sem bila decembra izbrana v nagradni igri za Yankee Candle svečko Festive Cocktail na Tarinem blogu The Beauty of Nail Polish! Svečka Festive Cocktail ima note sladkih gorskih jagod in borovih vejic, ki sobi dajo prijeten vonj in ambient, na srečo pa ni premočna. Je tudi del zimske omejene kolekcije, ki pa je trenutno še na voljo na slovenski spletni strani. Komaj čakam, da ob priložnosti zavijem v trgovinico in pogledam spomladansko omejeno kolekcijo. Kolikor sem videla na Instagramu, bi mi bilo nekaj vonjev zagotovo všeč! Tara, še enkrat se ti lepo zahvaljujem za svečko in kavico! ♥
I hope you spent a very happy and comfortable couple of Christmas days with your loved ones this weekend! Although I worked for the most part of yesterday, I managed to have a cosy and calm Christmas eve with my boyfriend. Today, however, we had an amazing lunch with my family and then we spent a few hours at my grand parents’ house, which was also amazing. And here are a few photos of my cute Maltese dressed up as a reindeer! He wasn’t very pleased with our idea, but he managed to get through with a couple of dog treats, haha. Anyways, I just wanted to say hi and wish you a very merry Christmas day! ♥
Upam, da ste ta vikend preživeli nekaj veselih in prijetnih božičnih dni s svojimi najdražjimi! Čeprav sem včeraj delala večino dneva, sva imela s fantom vseeno prijeten in miren večer. Danes pa smo imeli z družino super kosilo, nato pa smo nekaj ur preživeli še pri starih starših, kar je bilo tudi odlično. Tukaj je še nekaj slikic mojega maltežančka – jelenčka! Z našo idejo ni bil preveč zadovoljen, vendar je s pomočjo nekaj pasjih piškotkov preživel, haha. Želela sem samo malo pozdravit in zaželet zelo prijeten božični dan! ♥
Hi, everyone! As my boyfriend does not care much about decorations and ornaments, I decided to bring a bit of Christmas spirit to his living room by myself. I just wanted something simple, but still festive, so that I really feel cosy when I’m there (and I’m sure he does too, but won’t admit it!). A few months ago, I got three jars at Mömax and since one of them was still empty, I decided to fill it up with tree baubles in 50 shades of violet & pink. A very girly step, I know, but that’s just how it is – I love violet and in my opinion it looks great! As for these gorgeous coffee cups with winter motives, they’re from Ikea and you can get them for € 2,5 apiece. This is probably the easiest way to add some Christmas and winter spirit to your home if you don’t have time or space to decorate a Christmas tree. I might add some more more ornaments the next week, but it already looks quite nice.
What is your take on Christmas decorations this year? :)
