Hey guys,

It is the time of the year, when you can just stop for a minute and appreciate the value of friends and family, realize how blessed you are to have these amazing people in your life. When you get a gift, it’s not just something material. By giving something this person shows that he/she cares about you. Isn’t that the most wonderful thing in the world, to know that someone loves you and cares for you?)

That is why I’ve been SUPER excited about the gifts this year. When most of your friends are far away from you, it’s important to know they still remember about you, and show them your love too.

As you can see I got some makeup, which I think is always a great present.

First of all, this makeup kit. It’s from the amazing Italian makeup brand Pupa. I’ve owned a couple of items by Pupa, and they’ve always been very good quality.

This particular kit in bronze color (they also have it in black, as far as I know) contains a cute little makeup bag, eyeshadow quad and an eye pencil.

I am particularly excited about this pencil. It’s shimmery and looks gorgeous on your lower lash line.

The eyeshadow quad is okay. I mean the colors are nice , I just wish Pupa eyeshadows were as pigmented and creamy as my Naked2 palette.

I also got this lovely bronzing powder/highlighter. It’s from Giordani Gold.

I love the packaging too – it has a little snake on it.

I think, it’s too shimmery to use as a bronzer, but it’s a nice highlighter. It reminds me a lot of Mac’s mineralize skinfinish in ‘soft and gentle’.

This is how it looks on my skin.

The last thing I got makeup-wise, is this base coat nailpolish:

It’s called P2Β  Ridgefiller, it’s a German brand. It says ‘Ridgefiller with silk powder for a smooth nail surface’. My friend Katy, who lives in Munich sent it to me, she says it works great for her, so I’m sure I’m gonna love it. I received the package today, so I haven’t used it yet.

She also got me this ADORABLEΒ  cup πŸ™‚ OMG I am so obsessed with it. Thank you, Katy, I love you so much!

My cousin Medeya sent me a lovely sweater from Mango. I love Mango, it’s basically one of my favourite brands. And this sweater is soft, warm, loose and very very cozy – exactly what you need for chilly winter days. And it’s very versatile too – you can pair it with all sort of boots, jeans, accessories, jewellery, etc. So thank you Medeya, I love you and I love the gifts you give me πŸ™‚

And finally, I wanted to reming you guys about the giveaway!!!

Happy New Year to all of you guys!!!!! I am super excited and I hope all of our dreams will come true in 2013 πŸ™‚

I must say, that for me the year has started really well (except for the fact that I am sick, but got sick in 2012, so it doesn’t count)))

Look what my mum gave me πŸ™‚ I luv luv luv chocolate

So these couple of days I’ve been enjoying my junk food and watching my new favourite TV Show. And OMG I’m really obssesed with it!!!!! If you enjoyed ‘the Tudors’ and ‘the Borgias’, you are definitely gonna like this one

Image

It’s called ‘Magnificent Century’ and it’s about the life of the Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent, traditions of the Ottoman Empire and Muslim world of that time. This Turkish TV series also shows us women living in harem, their never-ending struggle for Sultan’s love and attention. As my Turkish is pretty horrible, I watch it with English subtitles. I do recommend it because it’s very entertaining and also because it’s historical, you can learn something new.

For those of you guys who are not yet convinced to watch this amazing TV Show :

Let’s face it, Turkish actor/model Burak Ozcivit is reason enough to start watching it right now)) Best history class ever πŸ˜‰
