Guess who’s back, back again, Sara’s back, tell a friend... It’s been around two months since I posted my last post and I feel like I totally isolated myself from blogging- since October I haven’t written a single post, read anyone else’s posts or done anything related to blogging.
So- is it too late now to say sorry? (I really have to stop with music references.) I don’t feel like I should apologise for neglecting my blog, but I feel awful, because not only did I stop blogging, but I also stop climbing. So since the school has started in September, I quit doing two things that I absolutely love doing- climbing and blogging. But school is something I really want to focus at the moment, especially since I’m in 3rd grade of secondary school (that’s like a senior year in American high schools) and is probably the most important grade after the 4th grade.
But I still want to focus on blogging (yay!), so I’ll try to be as active as I can during the Christmas holiday, January and then during the winter holiday. Well enough rambling about my boring life. As for my first post after ages I wanted to do a monthly favourites post. Because I’ve found quite a few things I love during September and December.
Lavera Naturkosmetik: Cleansing Gel
I bought this cleansing gel at the beginning of November and I’ve been using it twice a day ever since then. It smells so nice and it leaves my skin really soft. It’s probably my favourite product for facial care and trust me-I’ve tried so many different products because of my problematic skin. It’s also an organic and vegan product which is a big plus.
Essence: Pure Nude Concealer
I’ve just found out that Essence is also a cruelty free brand which is a great news, because their products are really affordable and of great quality. I got this concealer in 10 pure beige, because if people thought I was pale in the summer, they should see me now. I use this concealer for covering irregularities on my skin, but I almost don’t ever have to use it since I’ve started using Lavera’s cleansing gel, because my skin has really improved.
Maybelline New York: Baby Lips Electro
When I got my first Baby Lips lip balm I was not really impressed by it, but I’m absolutely in love with this one, which comes in Pink Shock. I’ve actually started using it instead of my lipsticks and everyone knows I love lipsticks. This shade of pink looks really nice on my lips, because the colour is a little less vibrant than most of my lipsticks, so it’s perfect for my everyday casual look.
Essence: Nail Polishes
As you can see I’m still obsessed with Essence’s nail polishes, because they’re really affordable and long-lasting. Lately I’ve been mostly using (from left to right) Colour&Go nail polish in Time for romance and The Gel nail polishes in Serendipity, Fame Fatal and On Air!. Especially the ones in Fame Fatal and On Air! are perfect for the time around Christmas- I mean glitters and red colour literally scream ‘Christmas’.
My cousin bought me this cute little candle that smells like Christmas. I’m a huge candle lover or should I say candle collector, since I love to collect candles on my shelf, but I almost never light one. But I’m definitely going to light this one on Christmas.
My favourite app (besides Tumblr of course) in the last months has definitely been Wattpad. I could say I’m a bookworm, but during the school year I almost never have time to read books beside the ones I have to read for school. But I love Wattpad, because I can read stories wherever I go and I don’t have to carry a book with me. I still prefer books though and I might also write a post about my latest book haul.
Here is the list of songs that I’ve been listening probably way too many times in the latest months:
Anna Naklab ft. Alle Farben&YOUNOTUS-Supergirl
Catey Shaw-Night Go Slow
Halsey-the whole album Badlands, The Feeling (ft. Justin Bieber)
Hayley Kiyoko-Cliffs Edge
Lady Gaga-Til It Happens To You
Marina and the Diamonds-Blue, the whole album Electra Heart
Melanie Martinez-the whole album Cry Baby
Troye Sivan-Wild (EP)
I really hope you enjoyed reading this post and if you discovered any amazing products that you love, don’t forget to mention them in the comments!
