Christmas Feels So Far

First week of December has gone by and so far I have brought up a few routines I do every year. 

1. Light up candles. I limit myself to buying a couple of candles and then lighting them up almost every day or evening until they run out. Right now I have one that is vanilla scented and the other one is slightly floral. 

2. Eating typical goodies for this time of the year- gingerbread cookies, chocolates from advent calendars and also consuming hot drinks such as tea (lots!), hot cocoa or chocolate. 

3. Baking! My love for baking grows in this month. I like to stick to simple but new recipes. 

4. I will try to avoid buying gifts at peak of the month. I don't always succeed as I like to avoid the capital in this time of the year (it's filled with tourists. And shoppers). 

5. Natural makeup prevails anytime but at around Christmas time I only wear reds and glitters on my nails. Classic red, deep red, golden glitters... all are at (on) hand(s). 😉

I have other customs too but I will aquire them soon enough. It's only sixth of December and there are a few weeks to go before the New Year's Eve. 
What are your traditions you like to relieve at Christmas time? 

Talk to you soon, 
xx Maja

  2. Gorgeous post and it was fun to read. I love festive baking around this time of year too! I’ve been trying to brave a red lipstick, I recently purchased a gorgeous one. Red and gold glitter nails sound perfect, you have reminded me to give myself a manicure. I like all your photos too, they are so Christmassy. Merry Christmas!! :-) xx
