What I got for Christmas 2014

Hi everyone

first of all, I hope you had a lovely christmas and if you don't celebrate christmas, I hope you had a nice day. In this blog post I'm going to show you what I got for christmas. I don't do this to brag, I just think it's nice to show you what I got because I love to watch videos from what people got. Enjoy reading!

From my brother I got this hand cream and a ticket for a brother-sisternight to have some pizza or fries and just watch a movie so that's very sweet of him!
I also got this hand cream from the body shop, it's very strong but it smells amazing! 
I also got a scrub from the Body Shop so that's nice (:

And a scrub from Rituals, so I can scrub for a few months :p

From my aunt I got a shower gel and a body polish from the Body Shop.

From the girlfriend from my brother I got this set from Yves Rocher with chocolat but I've already eaten the chocolat. But in the set you have a body lotion, a shower gel, something to do in your bath so there are a lot of PINK bubbles and the last thing is a sponge to srub or just wash yourself.

This is very handy, when I go on vacation or I go to a friend and my nail breaks or something it's handy to have a file with you and this is pretty small so it's easy to put in a bag or something.

My niece got me a day cream because when my face feels dry or it feels like it needs a little more care it's good to have a day cream. I personally don't think I'm going to use it daily because I don't want that my skin is already used to use it at such a young age, because when I'm older, I will probably use it daily and I just want to let my skin rest at this age.

This is something I love :D I got this for my friend's birthday but I also really liked it because I put all my earrings in a box so when I was in a rush, I still needed to find two earrings that were the same so know I can hang my earrings together and I can also put a few rings and bracelets in the space underneath the earrings.

This is something to put just random things in and you can also put pictures in it, so it's very cute but I still don't know what I'm going to put in it, if you know something, put it in the comments below (:

Oh gosh, I love this nail polish! It's from Bourjois and I personally think Bourjois has some amazing nail polishes. They cover very good and they give your nails a beautiful shine. The right one is amazing for days when you just want to have cared-looking nails and not some bright colours or something.

This is a hair brush from Dessata, it's like the one from Tangle Teezer, it fits in your hand and it doesn't hurt at all (:

I got a blush brush from Ici Paris XL because mine wasn't that good and these ones are also from a very good quality and they're very very soft!
Oh gosh, I didn't knew that this existed but it's A-MA-ZING! You need to put this bag in your closet and it gives your closet and clothes a lovely smell, so every time I open my closet it smells so amazing, I love it! 

Then I got already a few things for when I'm going to move or when I go to college. It's a towel and a bathroom set and it's from Snoopy, it's just so cute! (:

Then I got 2 gift cards from Ici Paris XL because they have makeup, perfumes, brushes and a lot more, so it's always nice to get something from there.

Jep, I asked for Uno and I got it! :p I lately played it with a friend and it's just nice to do when you have a birthday party and you're with your family or when you're bored. It's just a nice little game.

From my niece I got this cute little pocket diary because I mostly write the things I need to do on my phone but now and then I forget to check them so I forget things...

Oh, I love this one! I got a beautiful sweatpants/pyjama bottoms and I love when they're a little bit tight but still loose and that's what this one is. I just love to wear it when I'm home (:

I love to drink Ice Tea so my mom got me a Ice Tea glass because I always drink it in an ordinary glass but it doesn't taste that good in an ordinary glass so I got this glass.

From my brother I got a tasty bueno and something that you put in your hot milk and it turns it in a hot chocolate and it is delicious!

Last but certainly not least, my new sport shoes! I love them, I think they're gorgeous and they're also from a very good quality, but yeah, what do you expect from Nike? :p

Thank you so much for reading, for some this might be not that much, for others it's very much. I'm happy with what I got, very happy and I'm very gratefull for everyone who gave it to me. I hope you had an amazing christmas and I hope you enjoyed reading this blog post.

How to wrap your christmas presents?

Hi guys

sorry that I didn't post something for ages but I have had a busy week because I have had exams for 2 weeks and then I went shopping for christmas presents so I didn't have much time to write and I don't want to give you a post that's rushed because then it's even worser than it now is. So I'm going to give you some ideas from how you can wrap your presents originally or just beautiful. I hope you enjoy!

This is so simple but so fun. I know nobody is going to color the paper in but it's just a nice idea and lovely to receive.

Then you can also print out the lyrics from Jingle bells and wrap your present with it, because I had a big present and I really wanted to do it with her present I just stick it on it but it's fun if you could wrap it with a little present.
This is what I did:

I also really like this, this is where you wrap your present with a newspaper, with the ribbon it just makes it complete. It looks like the delivery-man just dropped it in front of your door, I just like it.

If you have a few of little presents this is the perfect idea! You first need to wrap every matchbox separately. Then you put your little presents in them and then you can either stick them to a plate or either stick them together on top of eachother.

You can also wrap your presents normally and stick any kind of candy you like, the ones they usually use are cherries or lollipops. Here are a few examples

Most people use christmas socks to put their stockings in it but you can also use to put some presents in them.

You can also use the 'Japanese diagonal wrapping' technique.

Christmas trees or reindeers are the perfect examples of things you can stick or paint or spray it with a spray can on your wrapping paper to make it more special.

You always need to write the name for who the present is on your present and normally you just write the name on the bottom of the present but you can do that more originally and cut out the name from the person from a newspaper or a magazine.

But there are a lot of different ways to wrap a present, just do what's the easiest for you and what you like to do (:

 I hope you enjoyed this christmas related post and if you do one of these, send me a picture on Twitter @thesilkedairies 
Thank you for reading, I love you!

My christmas wish list 2014!

Hi everybody

I was so excited to do this because I really look forward to Christmas! I love the cozyness and just how every one is together under the blankets. It's just nice to be inside with a hot chocolat when it's that cold, so I love it! And I don't have school so that's even better! With Christmas I go to my family, but here we don't have like very big presents, most of the times only a few small presents so in my christmas wish list there aren't things that are super expensive. I don't do this to brag and I'm really not going to get all these things, this is just what I would love to get and maybe you can get inspiration from it! Enjoy!

The first thing is a little bit stupid, it's UNO, it's a card game and I think it's nice to do when you're with family or you're bored or just on a holiday.

Then I want a silicone mall for decorating my cupcakes or cakes. (available at AVEVE)
A scrub is something I really need. My skin on my legs is very rough so it's good to scrub because when I scrub my legs, the roughness is less then when I don't scrub.

When it's cold in winter my feet are literally dying, they're so so so cold! That's why I asked for slippers. I think these ones from New Look are very cute but simple.

I also asked for a few gift cards from Ici Paris (perfume,...), The Sting, Rituals, iTunes,..

My nail polish from Bourjois is almost empty so I asked for it. What I love about this nail polish is that you have professional looking nails but they don't have a colour or they don't stand out. It just is beautiful to have nails that look healthy.

A cleanser is something very important for our skin as teenagers, young adults. It's important to cleanse your skin to remove makeup, any dirt and excess oil. Cleansing is also important if you have spots because they help to stop the process.

To apply the cleanser I asked for the Silk'n Sonic Clean Plus Facial Cleansing. It's a cheaper one then the one from Clarisonic.

Then I asked for a beauty organizer from IKEA.
I want to go sporting more so I asked for sport shoes, but I still don't know which one because I'm hestitating between a few ones.

Last but not least, I want a black shoulder-bag, a shoulder-bag is easy when you're going to a party and you want to dance or you don't want to have a bag constantly in your hands. I chose a black one because I now have a brown one but a black one is easier to combine.

So, this was my christmas wish list, I hope you enjoy and you now have inspiration to make your own christmas wishlist!

Thank you!
