Advent Calendars Wishlist

Advent Calendar Wishlist 2020

Advent calendars are something relatively new to me since it's not common in Argentina, the country where I come from. There is not an Advent tradition there so I never thought about buying an Advent calendar until I moved to Croatia. 

I feel like it's such a nice and special way to get ready for Christmas and it makes the holiday season so much better because it's not only one day but a whole month that you celebrate and receive little present until Christmas day. 

Advent calendars come in all shapes and forms, you have the traditional chocolate ones, the makeup, and skincare ones, which are definitely my favorites, but you can also find tea advent calendars and also gin and tonic ones. There is one option perfect for everyone and I think that is why they are so popular.

I think in these uncertain times in which we are not sure how the holiday season is going to be like, having a little ritual that gives us comfort and a bit of happiness every day sounds like a great idea. Therefore, I wanted to put up this wishlist with the Advent calendar I would like to shop this season. 

High end

The Dior Beauty Advent Calendar has to be my ultimate advent calendar dream, not only because I love Dior beauty products but also because the design of this calendar is absolutely dreamy and stunning. It's like an actual piece of art!

The Net-a-Porter 25 day Beauty Advent Calendar is the perfect option for the luxury skincare lover. This one has a very elegant and sleek design in black and white which looks really chic.

More affordable

L'Occitane is one of those Advent calendar classics that we wait for it every year. This 2020 Signature Advent Calendar has a great selection of products, and it has a good price point but they also have a luxury version which is a little bit more expensive, so it great they offer different options for every budget.

The Douglas Advent Calendar has a very cute and simple design but it really caught my attention, I like the around the world theme and I also think it includes a good selection of different brands and beauty products, so it's a great option if you would like to try more than one brand.

The Revolution Advent Calendar is without a doubt an excellent option for the makeup fanatics because it includes some great makeup goodies from the brand at a very affordable price. This is another one that I'm seriously considering getting because I think it offers great value for the money.

I think that would be all for my Advent Calendar wishlist, I will make sure to let you know if I buy any of these. Which one is your favorite? Or if you have any other advent calendar in your wishlist let me know :)

The Perfect Transitional Coat

 Bershka Faux Suede Transitional Trench Coat

One of the things that I love the most about transitional fashion is that is the time of the year in which we are allowed to mix a lot of different pieces, we can wear blazers, denim jackets, leather jackets, coats, boots, or flats, pants, skirts or dresses. I would say that we can rotate all the pieces in our wardrobe and make some amazing combinations. 

The star piece for the fall season is definitely a trench coat because it's lightweight but still gets you covered, so it's perfect for those days when is not so cold yet to wear a proper coat or a heavier jacket.

In addition, trench coats are super versatile, elegant, and chic, so they can elevate any outfit and they always give you those cool Parisian vibes, and who doesn't want that? Also, there are a lot of different types of trench coats in the market so it's easy to find the one that suits you the best.

In my case, I have bought this faux suede trench coat at Bershka during their summer sale and I was eagerly waiting for the temperatures to cool down so I could get a chance to wear it. I love that it's very casual and chic at the same time, the color goes perfectly with everything and it has the perfect length for my height. It has become my most worn piece of the season.

I paired it with this Zara black t-shirt and this gorgeous embroidered skirt that I haven't worn in a long time and to be honest, I can't see why because it looks so good and it's perfect for this transitional weather.

I hope you like this outfit and please tell me do you have a favorite transitional piece? Is it a trench coat or maybe a leather jacket? I would love to know :)

3 Korean Skincare Products I Would Totally Repurchase

3 Korean Skincare Products I Would Repurchase

Korean Skincare is still a big trend in the beauty world and it's definitely one of my favorites because in the K-Beauty world you are able to find some products that have amazing quality for some very convenient prices. 

Korean products are very popular because they usually have great formulas with amazing ingredients such as Centella Asiatica, niacinamide, etc. Therefore are very effective and also they are very appropriate products for sensitive skin because the ingredient list tends to be very clean.

I have been lucky enough to try some amazing products which have quickly become favorites and staples of my everyday skincare routine. So for today's post, I would like to share with you some products that I have used and that I would repurchase for sure :)

Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop 

This was one of the first Korean products I have tried in my life and I'm so happy I did because after seeing the amazing results it had on my skin I was totally converted to the K-Beauty world. This 5% vitamin C serum also has Centella Asiatica, the star ingredient for Korean skincare, which helps a lot to reduce inflammation and to soothe the skin, while vitamin C helps to brighten it. I have a complete review of this product with before and after pictures that I recommend you take a look at in case you are interested in trying this product.

Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream 

I'm such a huge fan of BB creams because I love having a natural makeup look, so this type of product help you to achieve that perfect no-makeup look while at the same time they hydrate and protect your skin since most BB cream has sunscreen. 

I was very surprised when I tried this one from Missha for many reasons, the first one being the shade. I was a little bit worried that the shade may be to light for me but I'm using the shade number 25 (Warm Beige) and it blends perfectly with my skin and has very nice light coverage. It also absorbs very quickly and it feels like you are wearing nothing, so that's a big plus for me!

Another thing that really surprised my is that this BB cream has only 20ml which doesn't seem like a lot of product but actually a little goes a long way, so even though I bought it last year and I use it regularly for my everyday make up look, I haven't run out of product yet.

COSRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser

This is a very gentle gel cleanser that feels very hydrating to the skin. I personally love the texture because the gel turns into a creamy texture more than a foamy texture and I think that's why it doesn't feel stripping to the skin. This product has a little bit of fragrance but as I wash it off it wasn't a big issue for me.

I hope you find this post helpful and I would love to hear your thoughts on Korean skincare. Also please let me know which are your personal favorites in the comments, I'm always excited to try new products!
