wow I can´t believe Christmas is tomorrow and I am actually done wrapping everything and decorating and meal planing plus shopping for groceries as well as setting the table and prepping our outfits. Yes it has been a whirlwind of a week but it was so worth it. I just can´t wait for tomorrow and see Emilia unwrapping all her presents and understanding a little more than last year.

Anyways let´s have a look at this cute, simple and super affordable holiday look. It might have been over half a year that I have done a “Full Face of…” post so I am definitely a little ashamed but hey better late than never am I right ??

Overall Catrice is a very popular drug store make-up brand with products ranking from 2 to 10 Euro which in my opinon is super affordable. 

I have used some of the products I am sharing with you today for years and always get back-ups so I would definitely recommend some.

This year definitely didn´t make it easy to look forward to things but in the end all that matters is health and family anyways. See you soon.

Best Hair Dryer and possible Last Minute Gift…

Let´s be honest who likes to dry their hair ? This is such an unnecessary task in my opinion so I often let it air dry and am very unhappy the next morning because it looks very frizzy and I feel like a scarecrow.

So about two years ago I found this hair dryer brush on amazon. That was the time when the Revlon one popped up everywhere but it was not available in Germany so I got this close one and I loved it ever since. 

I divide my hair into sections and it dries pretty fast. Also another thing I wanted to admit is that I still only dry my hair if I don´t have time to curl it the next day but it is now less of a chore for me.

The Benefits of a Silk Pillow Case…

….

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

I recently got a silk pillow case for myself because I was looking at some sites how I could take better care of my hair and make it look more shiny and healthy and one thing I have read over and over again was to try a silk pillow case. So in my amazon cart it went.

I had mine for about two or three months now and thought I share my thoughts with you. 

Benefits of a Silk Pillow Case

– prevents your hair from getting dry and frizzy from all the tossing and turning at night

– shortens the drying time of your hair if you are going to bed with damp hair

– in my experience straight hair stays longer straight than on a normal pillow case which I think is a really great factor

– it is super cooling in the Summer months

– skin care products stay longer on your skin because silk is a non absorbent material

And of course there are a few small down sides too:

– silk pillow cases cost way more than your average cotton or jersey pillow case

– they need to be handwashed or washed in a gentle cycle with a with a special laundry detergent

I love my silk pillow case and will keep it for as long as possible. And Emilia also loves to sleep on it. I would say it has definitely helped with a super dry area of hair on the back of my head so that alone is the main reason for me to keep using it.
