What I Got For Christmas!

Hey Girls!

Sorry for the lack of posts so far this Christmas break! I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas! I had a a great Christmas filled with lots of love and laughs with my family and friends.

I thought that I would just post pictures about what I got instead of describing everything. If anyone has questions on what brand something is, or would like me to review or describe something, just comment below and I would be more than happy to do it! :)
From my Parents:

My Stocking that my Mom made
 for me when I was little!
From my Grandma:

My favorite shirt!
From my Aunt, Uncle, && Cousins:

From my friend Kylie:
Lastly, From my manager at work:

Christmas is just about here!

Hey ladies!
Today is Christmas Eve, I cant believe it! I dont know about you, but for me it still doesnt feel like Christmas! :( It could be the fact that this year Canada has hardly any snow. It is really wierd seeing grass and not wearing a winter coat when usually it is almost 30 below!
Since Christmas is tomorrow, tonight I did my nails (after triming most of them...), and for a Christmas theme, I added Santa to my art! I made cute Santa faces on all of my nails.

Do you think they are cute??

I just want to wish a Merry Christmas to all my wonderful followers! Your comments and love means sooo much to me! Have a wonderful day tomorrow, and Happy Holidays!

DIY: Hot Cocoa

Hey everyone, and a early Merry Christmas!
It is crazy how fast Christmas is coming! I am super happy that I was able to get the last of my families Christmas presents today :)

Lately I have been making this Hot Cocoa instead of Hot Chocolate, and I have to say that I am loving it! It isnt as sweet as Hot Chocolate, but it is a great recipe and is less than 100 calories!

What you will need:
1 Tablespoons of Unsweetened Cocoa
1 Tablespoons of White Sugar
1 Tablespoons of Milk (and percentage: Skim, 1%, ect..)
1 Cup (250 mL) Boiling Water (or heated milk)

How to make it:
  1. Blend 1 tablespoon (15mL) of Unsweetened Cocoa with 1 tablespoon (or more, depending on how sweet you would like it) of White Sugar. While you are doing this, start boiling 1.5 cups of water. (I always like to boil more water than needed just in case ^.^ )
  2. Mix in 1 tablespoon of cold milk, and mix until smooth. This may take a few minutes.
  3. Once your water has boilied, pour in 1 cup of boiling water. You can also use milk, I just perfer to use water
  4. If you would like, go ahead and add some marshmellows, whipped cream, and cherries! (I usually dont, but hey maybe you do! :) )
 This is a great winter treat! Especially for cold days!

Nutrition Info:
1 Tablespoons of Unsweetened Cocoa: ~10 calories
1 Tablespoons of White Sugar: ~ 30 calories
1 Tablespoons of Milk (Skim): ~ 5-10 calories
1 Cup (250 mL) Boiling Water: 0 calories
                                                        ~ 50 calories

Wow! Only 50 calories for Hot Cocoa! Not only is this fun to make yourself, but it has way less calories than packaged hot chocolate :)
If you do uses 1 cup of milk, or more sugar, the calories will increase.

If you try out this recipe, let me know if you like it!!
Have a wonderful week, and Happy Holidays!

Candy Canes To Christmas!

Hey Girls! Christmas is soon approaching, and I am getting into the Christmas season more and more every day! Tonight I did candy canes and snowmen on my nails for this week's NOTW! I think they are so cute :)

What do you think?...

I filed all my nails down! :(

How cute is this snowman!?

I don't have all the nail polish colors with me right now, but I used a red color by Maybelline New York, and applied Red Velvet by E.L.F. over that. I used my nail art brush with some white polish to draw on the candy cane lines and the snowman! I used a black to detail the snowman. Once I finish that I used Sassy Sparkle by L.A. Colors to add sparkle to the snoman nail. After that I applied my top coat and thats it!

Have a great week! xox,

OOTN ~ Winter Formal ♡

Hey girls! I have a really exciting post tonight! On monday night, our senior class  at my school had our Winter Formal dinner and dance. I've been planning on doing this post to show you girls my makeup, nails, dress, and especially my heels!
I will also include some pics of the fun and memorable night with all of my friends! :)

The dress that I wore was black with silver gems on it, so I chose to do my makeup as a silver smokey eye.

I used a white cream base and applied it all over my lid. After I applied Rimmel London's shadow in Silver Moonlight all over my lid. For the outer "v" I packed on Chocolate by Joe Fresh. After blending the two colors together, I applied NYC's Liquid Eyeliner on the top of my lid as well as on my bottom lashes. I also used Annabelle's Kohl eyeliner to make the look even more dramatic.  After the eyeliner, I applied a generous amount of mascara.


I decided to do something simple but very pretty for my nails. I used Sally Hansen's Hard as Nails in Ice and used Simply Strawberry also by Sally Hansen to side swipe the pink on my nails and used Sassy Sparkle by L.A. Colors to add sparkle to the side swipe. I used L.A. Colors Silver Glitter Striper to add a sparkled stripe. 

This dress is a hard one to explain the detailing on it, but one thing that is easy to say about it is that it is black lol. Here are some pics:

The heels that I wore are absolutely amazing! I know when I saw them that they were the ones for me. However, they were 5.5 inches and by then end of the night my feel hurt so much and the next day my calf's also hurt so much from them!

For some more pictures from this night...
