BOOK - PRETTY HONEST BY SALI HUGHES


I was looking for a book with beauty essentials.. one that I could consider a bit of a Beauty Bible. The book Pretty Honest, was recommended by A Model Recommends (a model turned beauty guru on YouTube). I downloaded it on my iPad and was so surprised. This truly has the form of a Bible with its 413 pages ... But do I like what's inside??

THE ORIGINAL PAWPAW - LUCAS' PAPAW OINTMENT

 
 
 
I feel a trend coming! When I was flying to Brisbane (Australia) last year, this small red tube kept going around the airplane. One flight attendant put some on her lips, another one on her hands. I finally got a hold of it and was so surprised: Papaw? What the h*** is that? I went looking for the red tube when we arrived and brought home 2 tubes and a jar. Now that other brands have started duplicating this magical stuff, I decided to write about it: Lucas' Papaw Ointment.

DIY: Gingerbread Man Cookies

 

I've been baking for Christmas Eve! About two weeks ago I found a Gingerbread Man cookie cutter in a Dutch store, which is new, because the concept of a Gingerbread Man is not as well known here as it is in the US. So, I had never made these before and was so excited, especially for the decorating part. They go perfect with a nice Gingerbread Latte! Want to see how I made these??

DIY: Christmas Gift Wrapping

 
It is easy to let the girl or guy behind the counter wrap your Christmas gifts when you buy them, but giving a gift becomes extra special when you wrap it yourself AND personalize it. Isn't it so much nicer when you see someone has actually put an effort in? I love wrapping gifts and will show you what you can do and need to up your gift wrapping game and personalize your Christmas gifts.

Store: Typo


As a flight attendant I was very privileged to be able to walk into a lot of stores that I had never heard of before, Typo is one of them! I first saw this store when I was in Brisbane, Australia. The hotel we stayed in with the crew was just around the corner of a large shopping street & I just jumped for joy when I went inside Typo. If you like to craft or are looking for (wedding) gifts, stationery or decoration for your house.. this is the store for you. Honestly.. I even love to just browse their website. I will show you what I got from Typo!!
