Kiehl's advent calendar 2015 round-up |Smugnificent

If you follow me long here or on Youtube you know that the last few years I am literally obsessed with advent calendars. I try to find which ones will be released early on, always searching for new ones I have not gotten in the past. This year I focused on beauty calendars and I ended up getting not 1 but 3 of them! I was familiar with 2 of them, the Ciaté Mini Mani month and the L' Occitane Holiday advent calendar as I had gotten them previously. And I also really enjoyed them this year.

The third one I got though was a new addition by Kiehl's, a brand that I have tried a few things from, which I have fairly enjoyed so I found this an excellent opportunity to try a good variety of their line. 24 products for body, hair and skincare, most of them new to me in. I thought that it would be a good idea to show you what I found behind the doors as a quick overview because to my knowledge this is the first year Kiehl's launched a calendar and this can give you a taste of what you could expect for next year.

Kérastase Elixir Ultime hair oils |Smugnificent

Hair oils are among the most important products for my hair care since many years now and I they never miss my beauty stash. I have tried many different oils the last few years and I have quite a few favourites so I was intrigued to try out the new Elixir Ultime hair oils by Kérastase that Paoletti Public Relations sent to me. 

But before I jump in to the actual review I feel again the need to say how amazing I find Kate Moss in all the promo material of Kérastase since she became their muse. True hair inspiration.

My Insta-December 2015 |Smugnificent

I have been away from blogging from more than a month and I will avoid listing excuses but I am back and I will try to catch up on my post especially since I am incapable of filming since I have a hoarse voice from the moment I got back from vacation. December's insta-posts are among my favourites and it is always very difficult to chose pictures for them so this post will be indeed picture heavy. So before diving into my photo diary for the last month of 2015 I just have a small announcement concerning the blog.

 It is something that I am thinking since more than a year now and I decided to finally give it a go. From now on my posts (at least the majority of them) will be written only in English. Writing in 2 languages especially the crazy long posts I use to write is sometimes exhausting and often results in writing less and less. In an effort to try blogging a bit more often I will try keeping one language and see how it goes. That doesn't bring any change on my Youtube videos where I will keep filming them both in Greek and English as usual as I got a clear feedback from all of you that you prefer that. So I hope I will have your support in this effort and that I will compensate with more posts that you will all enjoy!
