Christmas Gift Ideas For Your Love

liz breygel january girl blogger new year christmas holiday present gifts


Christmas is the best time of the whole year and it is nearly here. Let's be honest, we love holidays not only because we get to spend time with family during our winter vacation. Christmas is the most wonderful time of a year, because we all love to give and receive little presents! Great holidays gifts don't need to be overly expensive or extravagant, foremost present is a sign of care and attention. The only thing you need to think about is what will make your friends and relatives happy and ensure positive mood. To make the choice easier and faster I have gathered few Christmas gift ideas for your loved ones with a help of online fashion store Sevengrils. I tried to make sure that everyone will love to discover these little presents under the Christmas tree.

1. Mermaid blankets are one of the most trendy items of 2017, so if your friend or relative still doesn't have one you can gift this snugly cute blanket to them. 

2. I really don't think why people call the Christmas themed sweaters ugly, I love how cozy they look. But if you aren't a fan of the classic Christmas sweaters, keep your loved ones warm and give them a nice makeover for one eve by gifting them cute unicorn hoodie.

3. Right after the ugly Christmas sweater goes ugly Christmas sweatshirt, pair them with ugly leggings and you are ready to party with your beloved family!

4. Who said that our little best friends can't celebrate Christmas as well? Give your pets a little fashion present, they will look so stylish in this stripped bell cap, but I'm not sure if they will like this present.

5. I'm a backpack addict and I'm absolutely sure that there is no bag more comfortable, than a compact mini backpack with few quick access pockets. If your girlfriend, sister or friend loves backpacks I'm sure they will appreciate this gift.  

6. There is nothing better than wrapping your body in a warm fluffy blanket, wearing your favorite overall pajamas and watching all day long a good old Christmas comedies/action movies from 90s. 

I hope my little gift guide was somehow useful, let me know in the comments what are you going to get for the people you love. And don't forget that happy memories, positive emotions, warmth and comfort of your family can never be bought with a credit card.

Are you ready for Christmas?
Lots of love,

january girl blue smokey eye makeup tutorial step by step pictures red lips

Hi guys and welcome to my December birthstone makeup tutorial! December is the last month of the year and it is the month of three different shade of blue and three different gemstones: tanzanite, zircon and turquoise. I've decided to choose Tanzanite and its indigo glow as an inspiration for my today's makeup tutorial. This stone was named by the place of its original and the only geographical part of the world where it can be found - Tanzania. Tanzanite is the best stone that can represent month December and the holiday mood of this time of a year. Follow these easy steps to recreate this charming indigo smoky eye.

Trying German Sweets & Treats | Candy Haul

European candy sweets liz breygel try haul january girl blogger

My sweet sister lives in Germany and some time ago she pampered me with a huge package of the famous German sweets, chocolates, wafers and others delicious treats. I'm a huge sweet-tooth and can't live without glucose overload in my blood, so today's haul I want to dedicate to everyone, who has a great liking for sweets like me. There is no bigger fun, than tasting a ton of delicious candies and I had so much fun creating this blog post!

Let's start with Giotto Weiße Mandel - a German analogue of famous Raffaello coconut - almond spheres, but Giotto tastes so much better. These sweets are as lightweight as a feather and melt away right after you put them in your mouth. I loved them very much and these almond treats were the first thing I finished from the package. The structure of Giotto spheres is very similar to Raffaelo and they also have an almond nut in the center of the sweet.

Next are a very popular cereal bars Corny, my lovely sister sent me two popular flavors: coconut and banana. Corny made of oat and wheat flakes, juicy coconut and banana poured with milk chocolate. I'm addicted to these cereal bars, they taste pretty simple, but so good! Few of Corny bars are still hidden in my purse.

Every German citizen knows and loves Hanuta hazelnut wafers. These crunchy wafers smeared with a sweet and aromatic cocoa cream and seasoned with crunchy hazelnuts. The incredible and aromatic taste of these wafers makes them the best breakfast food and I love to eat them with a cup of freshly brewed coffee or sugarless tea. They can also provide you with some extra energy through out a long day of work.

These are a classic American chocolate cookies full of chocolate chips. The dough is very sweet and crumbly and the chocolate chips are very tasty. I'm a huge fan of homemade cookies, but I didn't master my baking skill yet, so my cookies are not nearly as good as these yummies. If you are a big fan of simple American cookies, you definitely need to try out how German people understand this food. You will be impressed by the delightful taste and flavor of these snack.

I'm almost sure that everyone heard about Ritter Sport and Milka chocolate brands. These are probably two most famous European chocolate factories that produce a high quality products since early 1900s. Ritter Sport was founded in Bad Cannstatt, Germany, while Milka chocolatier originated in Switzerland. Both of these chocolate brands taste lovely! Their distinguished feature is a variety of flavors and fillers. For example, you can find 42 unique tastes of Ritter Sport chocolate square-shaped bar and 13 varieties of Milka.

And the last sweet treat for today is this cute Gummy Frogs by the world famous confectionery company Haribo. It was founded by Johannes "Hans" Riegel long ago in 1920. Gummy candies are one of my favorite sweets on the market, because they are chewy, brightly flavored and low fat. Haribo's Quaxi Fröschli are gummy and transparent on the top, but their bottom part is harder and tastes more like chewy marshmallow. The description on the packaging claims that these frogs are not croaking and they make children and adults happy and I absolutely agree!

What are you favorite sweet treats?

Lots of love,

How To Conceal A Sleepless Night | Makeup Tips & Tricks

| on
Saturday, November 11, 2017
dark under eye circles area how to remove conceal concealer color correction

Have you stayed up late working all night long? Or maybe you had an insomnia crisis? We`ve all experienced sleepless night and it`s effects. Puffy face, swollen eyes, dull skin with dark spots and under eye bags - these are the smallest issues caused by a lack of sleep. Today I`m going to show you few simple ways how to reduce and hide consequences of a bad night's sleep and survive through the day.

Reduce The Puffiness 

A bad night's sleep can cause bloodshot eyes and puffy face. The reason why our face gets bloated after a sleepless night is hormonal malfunction. Unhealthy lifestyle and lack of sleep leads to the collection of extra fluids in facial tissues and causes swelling of the face and eyes in the morning. To reduce puffiness you can use tea bags, cucumber and zucchini slices, but nobody has time for that in the morning, especially if your routine got ruined with a sleepless night. You can easily solve this problem by throwing a couple of spoons in the freezer for 5 minutes and using them to freeze the puffiness, it is my favorite method! I struggle with red and puffy eyes in the summer and I can`t hide myself from allergy. If you need some serious help with  face swelling try using a Pore Smasher by Banish (review here). This rolling massage tool reduces enlarged pores, puffiness and your face looks instantly refreshed.

Get Energized 

You don`t imagine what a 15 minutes of cardio exercises can do to your body! Cardio prevents stress, reduces body fat and fills your body with energy. Energy drinks and food can also help you and your body to wake up and make you feel better. Drink plenty of water to hydrate your body and skin, water is on of the best natural remedies to stay fresh.

Conceal Don't Feel

Nothing reveals a bad night's sleep like dark circle under the eyes. The skin around the eyes is very thin and tender, that`s why it is easily effected by sleep deprivation. Of course it is impossible to make dark circles vanish forever in one moment, it is a complex problem and it needs a wide serious approach. But what we can't drive away immediately, we can hide with a help of foundation and concealer. Try to use a color correction method to beat dark circles under your eyes. Yellowish and orange shades help to conceal reddish-purple hue showing through the skin. Don't forget to apply concealer correctly: apply the product on the lowest part of the dark circle and gently pad the concealer with your ring finger. I love to use Catrice Re-Touch Concealer, it has a yellow undertone and doesn't crease under the eyes, check out my full review here. To set the concealer on the place use a lightweight translucent powder, like this Mering Loose powder by Nanda (review), the finer is the powder the better is the result.

Makeup Disguise 

Unfortunately you can`t follow your regular makeup routine in the days when you had a sleepless night. Tired skin, redness and dark spots on the face won`t take a regular everyday makeup or classic smokey eyes and you will look even more exhausted. You can always use your favorite sunglasses to hide a bad night's sleep, but there are few simple tricks that will make you look and feel well rested.

First of all tired skin lacks in hydration, so apply a refreshing lightweight moisturizer under the foundation. My skin tends to get especially dry and flaky if I had a sleepless night and I prefer to use organic Overnight Moisturizer by Stemology. Moisturizer will prevent your foundation from caking into fine lines and provide your gentle skin with nourishment.

To refresh your complexion try to brighten your tired skin with some lively color - coral, peachy, baby pink. Avoid cold undertones and excessive contouring, it can make you look older. But on other hand you have freedom to play with highlighter! Add it on the highest points of your face - cheekbones, brow bones and on the cupids bow. Don't apply any eyeshadow or mascara on the lower lash line and under the eyes, instead of this step apply bright nude or white pencil on the bottom waterline. This will open up your eyes and make them look awake.

In the end of the day don`t forget to remove your makeup, have a nice long shower and your regular 8 hours of beauty sleep. Healthy lifestyle is a guarantee of beautiful skin  and good mood, that's why a good night of high-grade sleep should be your priority. I hope my tips will help you to get through the restless day and make you feel more refreshed. I`ll talk to you very soon again!

Lots of love,

5 Best Eyeshadow Palettes For Winter Makeup Looks

| on
Wednesday, November 08, 2017
urban decay morphe kat von d kylie jenner cosmetics winter dark smoky eyeshadow palette review

Winter is a perfect time to reconsider your wardrobe and makeup collection by adding some dark plum, burgundy and indigo shades in your look. Of course, matte beige, white and brown colors will still remain essential for makeup routine, while other colors such as electric green, yellow and pink you can bravely substitute with black, silver and sage green. Christmas and New Year eves are the best excuse to treat yourself with a new eyeshadow palette full of cold and saturated winter colors. In today's blog post I picked five gorgeous eyeshadow palette that will help you to create the most beautiful and mysterious makeup looks for late fall and winter time.

Let's start with the latest release from Kylie Cosmetics - a gorgeous autumn/winter inspired The Purple Palette. This palette features nine colors: four shimmer and five matte eyeshadows with cute names Blueberry, Purple Smoke, Amethyst, Wine N' Dine, Turning Violet, Lilac, Stone, Trophy, and Periwinkle. The texture of the eyeshadows is creamy and pigmentation is incredibly intense. I bet this palette will became as popular as other makeup products by Kylie Cosmetics, though some bloggers complained about the formula. Originally The Purple Palette was introduced as part of fall collection, but on my opinion these shades can perfectly represent and compliment winter outfits as well.

The next winter eyeshadow palette in my list is a Star Studded eyeshadow book by the expert in dark gothic makeups Kat Von D. This palette is number one in my current makeup wishlist and I can't stop admiring the original design of the packaging and excellent compilation of colors. Obviously, you can spot few romantic pastel shades like light green and soft pink, but they are used to seamlessly blend darker colors. Beauty bloggers and professional makeup artists claimed that these colors are bold and long-lasting, the only issue was with a shade called Gothica, because of its chunky formula. Overall, this eyeshadow palette has all the shades you need to create seductive smoky eye look.

urban decay morphe kat von d kylie jenner cosmetics winter dark smoky eyeshadow palette review


Morphe Pro 35 Color Eyeshadow Palette will be loved by both professional makeup artists and beginners, because it has all the necessary shades for perfect everyday eye look and a night our party makeup. This palette includes an exquisite assortment of earth toned cold/warm shades and a selection of unique violet colors. When I saw the swatches for the first time I was nicely surprised, because all the shades look very pigmented even without an eyeshadow primer. Some of the shimmer eyeshadows are chalky, and you need to blend them extra well for a smooth silky finish. This eyeshadow is truly amazing and I think it is a must have for any makeup lover. I even spotted few duochrome eyeshadows in this palette, isn't it amazing?


A perfect combination of matte and shimmering eyeshadow for a flawless brown smokey eye or a simple and subtle natural makeup look. This travel friendly palette by Nars was released at spring 2016 and consists of an amazing mix of 12 neutral and dark colors. You can even use some of the shades to fill in your eyebrows! This eyeshadow palette perfectly suits every complexion and can beautifully emphasize every eye color.

And the last for today, but definitely not least makeup palette is an Urban Decay Mariposa eyeshadow palette. It is a Sephora-exclusive eyeshadow palette created for the holiday season and it comes with a travel-sized eyeshadow brush. Five stars to the pigmented, long-lasting formula and to the gorgeous and unique metal tin design of the packaging. Some of the colors are a little bit too dry, but you can solve this problem by applying a nice eyeshadow primer before makeup.

These are my five best makeups palettes for late autumn and winter time! Don't forget to check the full range of wholesale makeups Will you grab a new eyeshadow palette this winter? Please let me know in comments what is in your current wishlist. Until next time

Hello lovelies! I don't know about you, but I slowly started to prepare myself for winter time, slowly changing my lipstick and nail polish colors. In the cold time of a year, during late autumn and winter I love to wear dark and cold colors. But few days ago I receive a package with Iridescent Nail Polish Collection*, kindly sent to me by Born Pretty Store. These colors aren't dark and gloomy, but very mystical and unique, they remind me of a newly-fallen snow and its mild iridescent glow. I thought that winter is a good time for such experiment and today I'm going to review this collection for you.

The Iridescent Nail Polish Collection features five unique colors: P001 'Moonstone' - beautiful and mysterious blue shade, that looks exactly like a famous moonstone gem, P002 'Lotus In Moonlight' - soft peachy pink shade with very fine glitter, P003 'Only You' - pinkish shade with magenta glow, P004 'Jade Sky' - lime green duochrome color and P005 'Moonsky Glow' - yellowish shade with champagne brilliance. All of these beautiful colors are truly unique, they are translucent and change their undertones and glow depending on lightning and the color of the base nail polish.

The application of the nail polish is awesome, the consistency is not runny or thick, so the nail polish glides on and perfectly covers the nail. The nail polish brush is more on the thicker side and it makes the application process even easy and fast, covering the whole nail in one swipe. The nail polish dries in no time and you can transform the finishing color by applying different bases. For example, to get deep and intense color with shiny, almost metallic finish apply this nail polishes over the black or very dark color. You can also apply them alone, but I suggest you to apply few thin coats for the best result.

In a nutshell, I love this nail polish and highly recommend checking out this collection by Born Pretty Store. Even though I'm more 'matte' girl and love to wear simple and plain colors on my nails I fell in love with all these shades. The price is very nice, one bottle of this gorgeous nail polish retails at $3.59 and you can choose your favorite color here. Use a a special code LIZH to receive 10 % discount off your purchase, you can click the banner below to check out the whole range of the nail products.

City Color Be Matte Liquid Lipstick 'Homeslice' | Review & Swatches

Hi lovelies! There is nothing better to me than a good dark bold lip, especially if it is matte and long-lasting. Recently I had a great opportunity to try out gorgeous liquid matte lipstick from Be Matte collection by City Color Cosmetics. The collection was released in eight beautiful shades ranging from light and innocent nudes to a dark reds and my favorite purple. Today I'm going to review mysterious shade called 'Homeslice' - bold and beautiful matte grape color, intensely pigmented and long-lasting.

The formula of Be Matte Liquid Lipstick is definitely incredible. The product easily glides on the lips and dries to matte finish almost in no time, but stays a little bit tacky. The texture is velvety, feels very lightweight and comfortable on the lips, though it can feel dry. The color payoff of 'Homeslice' is deep and intense, I like to apply a very generous amount of the product for a full coverage. But, of course, the brightest feature of Be Matte Lipstick is its longevity! This lippie lasts ages on the lips and you can eat, drink and even kiss without a fear of smudging your makeup. The formula is so long-lasting that you even need a special makeup remover for waterproof makeup to remove it later. 

And as always, few commendable words about the incredible scent of the lipstick. It has the most yummy smell of fresh baked pastry - a little bit of chocolate and vanilla. I know that people do not buy makeup products because of their sweet scent, but t is always nice to apply cosmetics that smell nice. I also want to mention a very unique hourglass shaped applicator, it is bendy and provides a perfect control over the application process and I find it very comfortable.

Wondering how to apply Be Matte Liquid Lipstick by City Color? First of all  recommend you to prepare your lips - exfoliate them with a soft scrub or toothbrush. Matte lipsticks tend to dry out the lips, so it is always nice to apply hydrating lip balm before you are going to apply matte lipstick. Don't forget to line your lips with a lip liner, especially if you color of choice is dark. To make your lip makeup neat and precised use a little bit of your foundation or concealer and clean up the edges of your lips. You can also apply a very fine layer of matte eyeshadow or translucent powder over the lipstick to set it and reduce the tacky feeling.

If you are on the hunt after a good matte lipstick with a long-lasting formula and a nice choice of colors, I'd definitely recommend checking out Be Matte collection. You can pick your favorite shade here at official City Color website. And I would like to say a big thanks to City Color and Brand Backer for allowing me to try out and make my own opinion about these lippies. Are you ready to stay matte?

These simple and effective lessons helped me to drastically improve my skin condition and always help me to outlive bad skin days. Maybe some of these rules will be very familiar to you, but for the sake of healthy skin today we are going to repeat them once again.

Balanced Diet

1. We all know the old and good saying - 'we are what we eat'. Our health, beauty and even our mood comes from the inside and from the food we consume. Especially for people with problematic skin well-balanced diet is vital to a clean facial skin. So I propose to fill ourselves with a bunch of fresh fruits and veggies which are good sources of fiber, vitamins and other elements. Forget about bad habits, junk food and drinks. Consult your nutritionist, this doctor will give you tips on healthy eating and exercise.

Here are few basic advices that will help you to organize your meals:

• eat the necessary amount of calories your body can consume during the day;

• limit intake of sugar, fats and diary;

• limit salt and strong spices in your food;

• increase quantity of beta-carotene and vitamins C, E, and A.

Hydration 

2. Water is a key to a healthy and beautiful skin. If we don''t drink enough water our skin dries and covers with small wrinkles and patches. Water deficiency is a way to an early aging and health issues. The average amount of water for adult is about 2 liters (67.6 oz), but to make sure you receive enough water per day use a Hydration Calculator. This website will calculate the approximate amount of water you should drink for your weight and lifestyle. 

Skin Care Routine

3. A reasonable skin care routine is super important for healthy skin. Well planned routine can cardinally change the skin situation. The main idea is to find beauty products that suit your skin condition and lifestyle the best and repeat it all the time. Of course your skin care routine may vary, depending on time of a year, but always remember about three main skin care steps : cleaning, toning and moisturizing. Consult dermatologist and after stick to your skin care to see the results. 

There is no need to buy the most expensive beauty care products on the market, just find those cosmetic products that will fit your skin type and age. Always use products with SPF, even if it is winter outside and there is no sun. Try to avoid skin care products containing alcohol and strong fragrances. Alcohol and fragrances can irritate and damage your skin, causing allergic reactions.

Clean Makeup Tools

4. And finally, one of the most important rules is to clean and sterilize your makeup tools. What's the point in clean face and expensive makeup products, if you are going to apply them with a disgusting dirty tools? Don't forget to wash your hands before applying your makeup. I like to carry around a spray bottle with alcohol, so I can clean spray my hands and brushes. There are so many bacteria, living among the home dust and feeding on our makeup products. Make a habit to wash your makeup tools, especially those you use to apply creamy and greasy products after each use. 

Certainly, there are so many other useful rules that can help you to improve your skin health. But I hope these tips were somehow useful and interesting for you. Please let me know if there is something I should know to make my skin better. I wish you all stay healthy and beautiful and stay tuned for more beauty tips on my blog. Until the next time ♥

Lots of love,
