We're far away, yet so close..

Hello dolls!! I hope you've had an enjoyable week. I had a lot to do this week, so I wasn't able to be here as much as I would have liked to. I've been busy getting overseas packages done and Christmas decorations, which hasn't left too much time for anything else. But, I wanted to share with you today a wonderful package of presents that I received from my dear friend Kim from A Very Sweet Blog! We send each other care packages through out the year, which is a lot of fun & always brings a smile to my face. Kim is a marvellous friend who has a massive heart, the world seems brighter having friends like her. It's funny when the packages come as my postman always has a distressed look on his face after carrying the box up all the stairs to get to my flat. I took pictures of my gifts except the sweet potato mini pies Kim sent as well and that's because they've been eaten, haha!! Soooooooooo good..they are a must if you're in the states, you must get yourself some of Tee-Eva's Old-Fashioned Pies & Pralines because they are out of this world yummy, I would keep them in business on my very own if I lived in America, haha!! You can either have them shipped to you or step into her place, so go go!!
I'll have full beauty review posts of each of these products after I've used them for a bit, so you can see them better & read how I got on with them. I hope all of you have a wonderful weekend & keep warm dolls!! Christmas is coming fast!!

Loves & Loves

Hello Kitty compact that has lipglosses and eyeshadows in it...how cute is Hello Kitty!?! It fits in my bag as well, happiness! And these super marvellous Barbie lipsticks that I won on Kim's blog too..the colours are gorgeous!

Body Butters from Lavanilla Labatories...100% all natural butters without the nasty chemicals and add in's. Vanilla Coconut and Pure Vanilla....they smell delicious, love these!! 

My first EVER MAC lipstick in Pink Poodle! Kim got this colour because of my outfit post of me wearing a pink poodle skirt, so cute :) I think pink lipstick is becoming my signature 'Doll Look', haha! Also this brilliantly bright make-up bag that I can tote all my make-up pieces in, love the gradient effect.

 Above: Mixed Chicks products...Kim found out about this company & made me aware of it. Mixed Chicks make hair care products that are non-sticky, light-weight that leave your hair defined and moisturised...am so excited to use these as many products aren't specifically designed to give my hair what it needs being mixed race. I love more so their Multi-racial movement of being proud of who you are no matter what race you may be - it's beautiful & how also these products will work on ANY one's hair - mixed or not!!

Below: Sephora goodies, glittery nail & eye-liner appliqués, Tinted Lipgloss & eyeshadow. I'm crazy for appliqués - especially eye ones, so I am going to have a lot of fun with these. No doubt they will pop up in outfit posts in the future.


  1. Morning Kizzy! Have been busy with Xmas decorations too this week and still havent finished lol!:) Btw, Kim is a great friend indeed, she has been so sweet and thoughtful to send you all these goodies, how nice of her! I fell in love with the HK compact and the Barbie lipsticks, cant wait to see better those products and also to see the MAC lipstick on you, definitely will be your doll signature! They hair stuff sounds interesting, let us know you found them then. Have a marvelous weekend Kizzy and stay warm! Hugs! xo

  2. Morning dear Kizzy! As I already told you on Instagram, I love those Barbie lipstick! Love every single shade and would love to wear them myself. Unfortunately, during the winter(cold) period my lips are in such a bad shape and lipstick do not look good on them :( Would love to see you wearing them! And there's MAC... I love their products but it can't be bought in Croatia :(
    Enjoy your sweet box (Kim is truly an amazing friend) and have a great Friday!

  52. There are SO many yummy things in the US! And by that I mean both the things you eat with your mouth and things you eat with your eyes... :) I've been to the States two times - LA and NY - and one thing I love to do when I'm there, is walk around inside the drugstores. So many things you never thought you needed! And a few you really knew you needed, but aren't allowed to be sold in Sweden... Haha! :) xxxxxxxxxxx

  53. Hello Kizzy!!!!!
    Love Hello Kitty so that compact is amazing!!!!! Christmas seems close but we're still a few weeks out yet....

  54. Great post, have a lovely week doll :)
