Christmas Edition: Sephora Makeup Haul!

Hey guys. Just wanted to update you on my vacation in Prague with my sister. Several days ago, we walked around the Palladium Mall in Prague. We browsed around Sephora for half an hour and ended buying several things. Sephora was having a promotion of 2+1 on all Sephora products. So after getting the makeup box and the bronzer, I picked up the eyelash curler for free. I really wanted to buy the Chanel eyelash curler but everywhere I go, it was sold out! I've heard many good reviews on it and I guess everyone else did too. I hope I'll be able to grab one before it sells out again the next time I hit the mall. All the products in this post was bought at Sephora except for the Curioliss hair straightener. This was bought at a booth in the mall. It was quite pricey but definitely worth the investment. I will do a makeup review on these products when I get back to Brighton in January. 

In the meantime, continue to enjoy your holidays and happy new years!!!

Happy Holidays!

Just wanted to take pictures of this tiny yet beautiful town of Hradec Kralove in Czech Republic. The Christmas Market, although it cannot be compared to the ones in Prague, nevertheless was still beautiful. The stalls were selling everything from swords(?) to delicious Trdleník Cinnamon Desserts. I didn't manage to take a picture of it before I ate it all because i gobbled it but here's I promise to take a picture of it the next time I get one.

Christmas Presents Haul!!!

My sister and I were walking around the Christmas markets in Hradec Kralove and found this Zen/spiritual  little store nearby selling everything from Buddhas to incense to quirky little things to decorate your home with. One of my good friends is extremely obsessed with elephants, hamsa and stuff like that so I decided to go in and get her a souvenir from Czech Republic. We ended up browsing around for half an our buying things for our friends and family. We bought some elephant figurines (for my mom to decorate the house with), an elephant windchime (for my good friend to decorate her flat with), to some incense (for my sister to burn in her room for the fragrance) and finally some cute little earrings (for me!). I'm definitely planning to return to that store to buy even more things.

Goodbye Brighton, Hello Prague!

I  am extremely excited to be spending Christmas with my sister, who is currently studying her first year in Medicine in Hradec Kralove, Czech Republic. I'm going to be staying and blogging from here for the next three weeks. The next few weeks will be spent exploring the beautiful and amazing city of Prague. Stay tuned...

Winter Wonderland 2013

 It's that time of year, when anything and everything looks beautiful. When the nights are shorter and the temperature has dropped and Christmas songs are played everywhere. And the lights all over town makes everything seem so magical. I just love Christmas. :')

My friends and I went to London on Thursday to do a little last minute Christmas shopping and to go to Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park. We spent the day shopping and hitting stores like Miss Selfridge, Topshop, Forever 21, and lastly Harrods. 

Every Christmas, when I go to London, I fall in love with the city all over again. The bright lights and Christmas decorations were breathtakingly beautiful. love to walking along Oxford Street, Regent Street or through Covent Garden to marvel at the Christmas displays and just soak up the Christmas spirit. I especially LOVED Harrods Christmas window display. Each window has a story behind it and the pieces used to decorate it was just spectacular.

Love going to London to do some Christmas shopping. I'm going to make it a Christmas tradition for my friends and I.
