Since the long-awaited Christmas is now approaching without any warning, I and E. decided to go (to Tartu) and simply purchase all the presents we're going to need after a couple of weeks. I have to tell you it was a really tough job because I'm such a perfectionist and had to find the pick of the bunch for everyone. So, I truly hope the presentees do agree with me and Erik (he did actually help me). By the way, we also have the Christmas cards ready and now it's all about the finishing touch, i.e. wrapping the presents and doing some additional handicraft. Anyhow, I do hope everything will be wrapped up and closed in perfect time (right now most of the presents are overstuffed in the plastic bag you can see from one of the photos).
Enough Christmas talk! I got three things for myself too: December issue of GLAMOUR UK (Twilight star Kristen Stewart is on the issue... oh, and E. bought me the magazine actually), Candle Chandelle scented candles with strawberry shortcake, fresh baked cookies, caramel cream and peach preserves (those are simply heavenly, so do try them if you'll maybe get the chance), and finally Goldwell dualsenses hair kit which consists of Rich Repair shampoo (250 ml) and a conditioner (200 ml) with the same name. I have used the products only twice but the first impression is quite promising, nevertheless not magnificent but I do know it's almost impossible to find perfect products.
Anyway, brief words about the shampoo and the conditioner: Rich Repair shampoo provides cleansing with repair-effects and the conditioner serves daily care with repair-effects for improved combability. The repair system with pashmina-silk proteins works in combination with instant microfluid technology for quick and even distribution through hair. It straightens hair, calms hair structure and boosts moisture. Oh, and the shampoo and the conditioner smell like vanilla, jasmine, cedar and sandalwood. And even if I've used the products only twice, I can honestly say the usage gives my hair a healthy shine and a silky-smooth feel (although combing my hair could be a tiny bit easier than it is right now with those two products). Let's wait and see how it develops hereafter.
Last but not least, I hope you do like the photos. I'm wearing one of the three dresses I got from boohoo.com and the cardigan is a DIY project I had with my grandmother. To be precise, a fur collar (from an old jacket) and leather elbow details have been added to a regular thrifted cardigan (all the details are also thrifted). I'm really satisfied with the outcome! Let me know what you, my dear readers, think.
I was wearing: dress - New York Laundry /boohoo.com/; cardigan - DIY, originally from Vero Moda /thrifted/; leggings - Guess; boots - /thrifted/; sunglasses - Diesel.
