Last week, Nicolas turned 23. I spent hours upon hours thinking about the perfect way to celebrate and came up with NOTHING. My perfectionism gets the best of me sometimes. The night before his birthday, I was
Happy Friday, everyone! Today is my first Friday Favorites post where I will be sharing a handful of things I have really been enjoying over the past week. I am still recovering from a pretty bad cold, so you will see how my favorites correspond to that! Enjoy xx
1. Bobbi Brown Retouching Wand
This is a new product from my favorite makeup brand – Bobbi Brown. I LOVE THIS. Since I have been feeling under the weather, this is honestly the only makeup I have been wearing. It is exactly what it claims to be – a magical retouching wand for your face. You can use it as a foundation, concealer, or touch-up stick. I have been using it after moisturizing to “spot treat”. I applied it lightly under my eyes to brighten and around my nose to combat redness. The formula blends into your skin seamlessly, and I don’t even need to set it with powder. I am in the shade Porcelain. It looks just like my skin but better. Thank you, Bobbi!
Decorating is one of my very favorite things to do – especially for Christmas. I love making everything festive and cozy. With the help of both our sweet moms and a few shopping trips to some cute stores in Copenhagen, Nicolas and I decorated his apartment for Christmas. I love all the cute little elves, red and gold accents, and vintage-looking pieces. 🙂 I was so, so happy with how it turned out!
YAY my first Christmas post!!! Although I’ve been in the Christmas spirit since the first of November, I think it is finally socially acceptable to upload a holiday themed post now. Last night, Nicolas and I had a “Present Wrapping Party”. My mom always made wrapping Christmas presents together so fun and cozy, so I wanted to carry on the tradition. I lit lots of candles, put on some Christmas music, and made hot chocolate with lots of whipped cream. 🙂
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! This past Sunday, I hosted my first ever Thanksgiving dinner with the help (ok, he did more than help) of Nicolas for his wonderful family. Just because I am overseas does not mean that I will ever skip out on one of my favorite days of the year, not to mention the leftover turkey sandwiches! The evening was nice and cozy, and I was so happy to share some of my favorite American traditions with them.
