The Christmas tag!

Looking around the web, I saw this beautiful "Christmas Tag". Since I love writing tag posts, I decided to do it as well.  These are simple questions about me and Christmas time. If you would like to do it as well, feel free to do it, maybe let me know it in the comments below, simply because I'd love to know it.

What time of the year do you start your Christmas shopping?
I'm not an organized person, so every year I have to go buying Christmas presents during a week before Christmas day. That's sad but i have to say that i'm pretty good at doing it because I'm always in time :)

Do you have any festive recipes for food or drink you limit solely to the Christmas season to share?Actually not. I love cooking, especially desserts, but i don't have one in particular that I make only at Christmas.

Tell me how Christmas goes home in your home:
During Christmas eve, we wait midnight to make a toast to celebrate and than we open our presents, we stay up until late playing TOMBOLA that i loooooove!! When we wake up the day after, we have breakfast all together, lunch as well and we continue playing tombola ahhaha

Do you have any Christmas traditions?
I start eat pandoro only from the 25th of December!

Do you have a favourite festive coffee?
No, I'm not a coffee drinker

Do you have a favourite Christmas song?
I love all  Michael Buble's Christmas songs :)

What do you do on Christmas eve?As i said before, I have dinner together with my family, we play tombola, and have a toast at midnight!

What's your Christmas wrapping strategy? Do you have one?
I'm sorry, I don't have one.

What's your dream gift this year?
A car, but it's definitely IMPOSSIBLE.

Describe your Christmas tree. How tall? Real or artifical? How is it decorated?
It's small, i don't know the precise hight, artificial and it has every possible color on it xD

Do you decorate just the Christmas tree or other areas of your house e.g. windows, banisters?
Just the Christmas tree and some stickers on the windows.

What do you wear to Christmas parties and what do you wear on Christmas day?
I've never been to a Christmas party. During Christmas day i wear leggings and a warm and cozy sweater.

I wish you all a merry Christmas xx

My favourite foundation

Today's post is about my favourite foundation. It's the Maybeline Dream Mat Mousse. As it's name says, it's a mousse, and that's what i like the most because it is not heavy at all. So, since my face does not bear heavy and oily foundations, it is the best i could ask for. Actually, i don't apply it all over my face because i don't think i need foundation, but i just apply it on my redness. Also, it is vey cheap, i payed it just 8 Euros, and i think it's super cheap for this brand. If i can give you an advice, try not to use heavy foundations, they can damage your skin. When i decided not to use them, i started applying mineral foundations and i have to say that my skin completely changed. Now, as i said before,i don'y need to use foundations at all and it's a benefitt because my skin can breath and i earned time in the morning. Usually the foundation step took me half of the time i used to put my make up on, because i think that if you have a good base you don't need to put any more make up on. Sometimes i see girl with a baaaaad foundation base, both because they applied it too much, because the color didn't match their natural one and both because it was not well blended.

The color is 21 nude Beige Suave, it's a light color but not the lightest. I used to use it as a concealer, and i have to say thay did his job very well.Sure, i have to apply a liquid concealer on it because I want an additional coverage but if your dark circle are not too dark it is perfect!

Let me know in the comments below if you're using it and what you think about it!

New York Cheesecake Recipe

Hey giiiiirls, here's another dessert recipe i made recently. Since it's christmas time, i thought it was helpful to wrote a post about a dessert recipe. Here i think is my favourite dessert, the New york cheesecake. I ate the original one last year in Time Square and it was way too delicious to describe it with words (you have to try it, absolutely). The preparation is pretty easy, keep reading to learn it. I'm sorry for the photo, but i forgot to take a picture of it right after the preparation. Iwas lucky that there was still a slice :)

1/3 cup butter, melted
1 1/2 cup cinnamon graham cracker crumbs
3 1/4 packages (8 oz. packages) cream cheese, softened
1 can 14 oz. sweetened condensed milk
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 eggs
1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Combine graham cracker crumbs and butter; press evenly on bottom of 9 inch pie pan.
2. In large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Gradually add sweetened condensed milk, beating until smooth.
3. Add vanilla and eggs, mix well. Pour into prepared pie pan.
4. Bake for 1 hour, turn off oven but leave cheesecake in oven with door propped slightly open for an additonal hour.
5. Refrigerate at least 6 hours until firm.

I hope you like it and let me know in the comments below if you did it :)

Hello December

Weeeeeeeel, i've never written a blog post about a month of the year but DECEMBER is my favourite one!. I'm quite sure i'm not the only one who has this thought. :D

I just have to do a list about the things that make me love December:

- on the 5th of december is my birthday
- We decorate our houses for Christmas
- The streets are all decorated for Christmas
- I always sip hot beverages (especially hot chocolate, cappuccino and tea)
-I eat a lot during Christmas festivities especially sweet treats (nom nom nom)
- i can exchange Christmas gifts with people i love
- I love Christmas songs
- I stay with my relatives
- We celebrate New Year

There are more reasons why i love December but i didn't want my post to be too long (ahhahaha)

Talking about foot i love eating homemade treats, especially my Grandma's. I'm from Italy and it's a traditon for us during Christmas festivities to eat Pandoro and Panettone. I personally prefere Pandoro!
