Traveling to foreign countries is an incredible experience. Even when it includes zero shopping. It's pretty awesome on its own. But if you live in a country where there's no Sephora, it's an absolute must to pay a visit there when you're abroad. It's funny how now, long before I even spot Sephora in the shopping mall (my indoor navigation skills are just as terrible as my outdoor ones), my hubby is pointing it to me saying "Go. I will wait here. Take your time" (he's a keeper). This exact scenario happened when we went to the US last month. I didn't get much this time but I did pick up a few things I knew I would love and a few new products that would be fun to "test". I also got a special little something to include into this post as a giveaway because I'd love for one of you to have it and enjoy it as much as I have. Without further ado, let's dive into all things Sephora beauty.

January can be quite a sluggish month. Yes, we've just turned over a new leaf aka 2017 which means it's high time to get cracking and start ticking off those to-do's and goals off your list. Well, guess what? It's perfectly fine if that hasn't happened to you yet or that you've already broken half of your resolutions. Ease that pressure on yourself. It's a massive challenge on its own to dive head first into the routine after the holiday season. To be honest, it has been tough for me to do the most elementary things on certain days (hello, motivation?). I tried to crack the code as to what is wrong with January but Google would be able to tell you more about the "winter blues". There's one thing I know that works 100% without an error when it comes to surviving the "post-festive winter" - a perfect escape. Planning for it can be a daunting experience so I decided to share these 5 easy-breezy tips to help you organise that much needed getaway.

There are basically two types of people in the world. Those who dunk their biscuits into the tea and those who eat them the right way (just kidding!). Same applies to resolutions. There are those who swear off setting any kind of plans/goals/aspirations while the rest of the world is on a mission to change their lives once the new year rolls in. I definitely belong to the goal-setting portion of people but comes 2017 I realized I have been doing so many things wrong when it came to actually STICKING to those plans. This year I am going to work on changing the way I view my goals and start taking baby steps towards those summits I want to achieve. It's true that 2k16 was a tough one. Nevertheless, it's great to look back and find the good in it, get those valuable lessons on board and step into the new year stronger and happier than ever. So here are my reflections of 2016 and goals for 2017.
