Blogmas 30: The Christmas Challenge Overview

 Throughout December I've been doing the Christmas Challenge that Taya created this year. I've enjoyed it very much and I like how it challenged me to think out of the box and create some looks that I probably wouldn't do otherwise. I posted the last »entry« yesterday, and now I want to do an overview so that you will be able to see all the posts in one place!

Blogmas 28: Advice to my younger self

A while ago I read a similar post on Sanja's blog –Sparkle with laughter- and ever since wanted to do one myself.  I think it fits perfectly in this time of year, since we are thinking about New Year’s resolutions and are looking for a way to improve ourselves. Here is what I would tell my younger self if I had a chance to meet me:

Blogmas 23: Santa Claus is coming to town

 For the theme of the 8th day of Taya's Christmas Challenge she picked »Santa Claus is coming to town«. 
I must admit I am not a big fan of cartoon-like Santa Clauses, so I didn't want to do that on the nails. 
I decided to focus on the colors the remind me of Santa Claus.

Blogmas 21: Makeup Revolution -I Am In Love

I was browsing through the online store Lič and spotted this lovely Makeup Revolution palette on the discount page. It seemed like a great idea to have a palette and a lipstick in one packaging and since I liked the look of the colors, I decided to buy it.

Blogmas 16: Fantasy eau de parfum

I was browsing through our drugstores the other day and saw a sign in DM that said -35% off the price of selected perfumes. Even though some of the brands on display seemed very interesting, i had a little sniff around, and fell absolutely in love.

Blogmas 12: A Shopping Trip to Italy

Remember my Late Night Shopping haul from Blogmas 9? Well, the day after that event, I went on a trip to Italy with my family, and guess what we did there? Yes, we were shopping, so I have another haul for you today.

Blogmas 11: Revlon Parfumerie Nailpolish -African Tea Rose

 I wanted to try these nail polishes since the moment they got released. I got this shade for my birthday in the summer and have been using a ton ever since. I thought it would be a great idea for a Christmas present or just an inspiration how to brighten up these cold winter days.

Blogmas 10: Almost a year of blogging

Today I am doing something a bit different than usual. This post that you are reading is my 100th post and since my blog will be 1 year old on the last of December, I wanted to take this opportunity to look back and share some of my favorite moments with you.

I was obsessed with you tube and beauty blogs long before I started thinking about writing my own blog. It was Promise Phan that I first discovered on YouTube and then my subscription box started expanding very quickly. After that I started following more and more beauty bloggers and soon found out, I also want to share my opinions and experience with others.

I was thinking about starting the blog for almost a year before actually starting to work on it. I'm glad that I took my time and started slowly. I spend months thinking about the name of the blog and finally came up with the name Beautysaur –which I still love, so I think I did a good job. The design of the blog was another story, because I had no experience, but I am slowly starting to get the hang of things, and I love how the design of my blog is improving.  (Even though it is in a very over-the-top Christmas form right now!)

It was quite hard for me to learn how to photograph and edit photos in order to get the best representation of the product and its color. I promised to myself, that I will always be honest in my reviews and that I will do my best to use only my own pictures (except when writing about products I don't actually have, like wish lists and similar).

It was working for quite a long time on my first post, made so many pictures, used so many light and then finally had it ready and prepared a few days before I wanted to post it. On the New Year's eve, I showed it to my boyfriend, and after his »approval« I posted my first post.

Since then, I've been learning as I go, I try to improve the looks and the content of my blog with every new post I do and I love seeing how more and more people respond to it. Recently, I've created a Facebook page for my blog and this way »showed« the blog to people who also know me in the real life, and for now, the reactions have been lovely.  

You must be pretty bored of this long, rambling post by now, so let me just add a few links to my favorite posts:

And the post that got by far the most views was (surprisingly) the

Blogmas 9: Late Night Shopping Haul

At the end of November, my cousin suggested we go to the Late Night Shopping event that was happening in some of the malls in Slovenia. I must admit that at first, I didn't want to go because I was too tired, but now, I am incredibly happy that we went.

Blogmas 8: I Heart Winter Tag

Do you like the cold?
I love the cold. I never was a particularly summer-y person and I feel much more at home in the cold winter.  After all, you can always put on another layer when you are cold, right?
I love the crisp air and the cold smell in the air, especially when there is snow outside.

Favorite part about winter?
Snow, cold, Christmas, fairy lights, cinnamon, mulled wine,… -I love everything about winter!
What is your favorite Christmas drink?
An honorary mention has to go to my mum's homemade tea –yum! But without the doubt, red mulled wine is a perfect winter drink!

Do you do any outdoor activity in the winter?
Does shoveling count? Besides that I love being in the snow –snow fights, building snowmen, snow forts and long walks with the doggies.
 Favorite winter scent?
In general, I adore cinnamon-y and spicy scents, also orange and cloves, but to be more specific, I recently got a new body spray from H&M and I am obsessed! (I will write more about it very soon!)

Does it snow where you live?
Yes, luckily it does. Unfortunately, we haven't had a white Christmas in a few years, but I have high hopes for this one!
 Favorite clothing item in winter?
My coat –I adore it. And all of my scarves, hats and mittens.

Your favorite winter memory?
The one that came first to my mind is last year's. I got a new dog in the summer and when it snowed for the first time, I took her out to »show« her the snow. She was so confused and afraid of the strange white stuff that appeared from the sky, it was the cutest thing ever! 

 What is your favorite thing about winter?

Thanks for reading and see you tomorrow!

Happy holidays,
your Beautysaur
