Getting Creative with Decorating | VLOGMAS



good morning everyone welcome to no vlogmas I'm just having my cup of coffee I got up so late in it I feel like really bad I got up at 11 it's not really usual for me to get up that late I couldn't sleep yesterday I was suffering from sleeplessness I think I was still a week at like 4:30 in the morning not of my own volition it's not like I was reading a book or staying up late or anything I just couldn't fall asleep I was trying and trying and couldn't sleep I think I finally fell asleep around like 4:30 or quarter to 5:00 so that's why I slept so late oh there's snow in the mountains I'm just looking at the window I can see the mountains from my window and there's fresh snow so today I have to run a bunch of errands I want to finish up the Christmas decor outside which means I'm going to take Owen for a walk later and go to the forest so that I can grab a bunch of shrubbery and evergreens and stuff to do some nice decor along the windowsills and then I want to pick up a few more decor items sit down have this coffee and make a list of all things I want to do today okay so today is December 3rd so we have a little branch with some Christmas decorations on it I also want to open my advent calendars with you so the Clinique one it's a black eyeliner pencil no olden olden things those are balls those are not balls to play with he had one in his mouth this morning I was really scared I don't know like if he takes them again I might have to get rid of these bobbles although these ones is not very dangerous because they're made of plastic so he can't really break those No Oh Jean naté this is the body shop one number three is down here oh this is gonna be kind of like a Jenga white musk body lotion cool could always use a good body lotion do you know what time it is it's time for the giveaway so in today's video I'm going to be giving away this lip set by NYX and this is the sugar trip lippy vault and it comes with all these may think lip colors and the matching lip pencils nine shades in here and then the matching lip pencil with each shade so if you want to win this I'm going to have all the detailed instructions what you need to do in the info bar below this video so I'm going to just have it written out what you need to do enter to win this so click on show more below this video I'll have everything listed so I hope you guys like this little gift set and good luck to everyone entering ok so I'm on my walk right now with the dog and I got a big IKEA back here in my garden shears I feel like the forests here aren't very ecologically diverse everything looks the same I'm trying to find different types of foliage and you would be amazed all these evergreens are like the same tree so it's a little bit boring cuz I'm just I'm trying to keep a lookout for you know different types of foliage and they all look exactly the same and I think it's because the forests here are like managed it's not like in Canada or everything just like grows wild here you know they they cut the trees they plant the trees I mean if you can see here these are all the same to the trees I wanted to have all different kinds of foliage but they all look the freaking same so I don't know I'm just like hunting hunting trees they're all like this kind I don't know what this kind is called alright a lot of moisture in there so I go out of prison I have a big bag of greenery here it's getting pretty heavy actually I did find a few different things I was really looking for some berries or something any kind of bush with red berries I didn't find anything and I was even looking for pinecones there's a lot of pinecones on the tree but there aren't any on the ground here so I'm actually walking back now starting to rain I don't have a raincoat on alright I am finally back at home it's already 3:15 so there's just no way I'm going to get done with everything I want to do today because it it gets dark so early it's already like starting to get dark outside I am gonna do something really different this year for the decor here at the window so instead of using a curtain rod I thought it'd be really cool to use like a big stick because there's this thing here and just put it from here to there so I found this big stick in the forest by some fairy lights to wrap around this thing and then I'm going to hang the Christmas ornaments from here so thinking it'd be cool to like wrap this around here I'm gonna do this so the branch I wrapped it with those alight but honestly I feel like it needs more light so I might buy a second string of those to put on okay they're probably glimmering on this on this video but they are not in real life but anyway I don't know if I should get something into this or if I should get make something like this cuz look this has lots on one are you serious I was thirty Swiss francs holy but 64 no I just want a single one ready so expensive oh these are meant as a Christmas tree that's cool I seem to have found them look they have these ones they have little coloured ones these are like little can you see that like snowflakes and they have these ones do little stars well aren't you cute or maybe a multi colorful one although not usually go for these multicolored things you think it looks a bit tacky oh my god this is ugly there's that so much stuff here look at these giant bubbles alright I am back at home this is my haul some exciting stuff some boring stuff so I got some of these timer switches one for indoor and one for outdoor so that the lights outside turn on by themselves so I got that and then I got one for indoor I don't know I've never had one of these diffuser things I was thinking I'm gonna put this in the bathroom I got this from mullah it's the pyjama vanilla and grapefruit scented diffuser I got some batteries I actually have some rechargeable batteries but I don't know I find like they don't last very long I always have to constantly recharge them so it's just annoying so I decided to just get some regular batteries and then I got some more of these LED candles these are so cool I think these are actually made with real wax and they're not too expensive you can get these at moolah and I got the large size it's just more safe because I don't want to put an open candle like this outside on the windowsill where there's any wood and decorations and stuff it's just not very safe so I decided to get those for outdoor so I don't have to worry about them and then I got some light bulbs for for some lamps that we have then I got this this I got this at Obi and this I thought looked really nice so I just got one oh no no oh my god I hate that I hate when you buy something and then look now this is missing the the slighty thingy now I don't have a cover for it so I'm gonna have to exchange that I hate going back to exchange exchange lining that context 7 bucks just it's just a waste of time oh well but I'm gonna try those out and see I actually tried one and them they have the in the store and they look really nice they're kind of like a silver Cromie color and they look really nice when they're on then I got my shampoo I got two bottles of those and then some deodorant which I needed and then look at these pretty lashes these are the kiss lash couture faux mink collection and these are in the style called Galah and I just thought these looked so beautiful I actually have a holiday look that I want to do very soon so I thought these will be for that look I'm planning to do and I got two of these small micro LED battery operated ones one of them is red which I'm gonna use in the kitchen on that stick and then the other one is just I think this one is just white and this one is red look at this oh my god I love this so much more I mean this is so much nicer than that stupid curtain rod I've mounted now all the the red balls I stopped to do the window sill out there but look how gorgeous I mean I don't have a light on right now so that you can see what it looks like with the fairy lights so it's all the the red and white stuff I've done this every year but I've never done it this way and then I had these fake flowers that I thought were just really ugly so I just plucked them off and just kind of stuck them in at the top there it's not so cool look at that it's so cool yeah my kitchen is a mess don't mind that so this is what it looks like when all the lights are off so like when we're gonna be eating the Christmas dinner I'm gonna have this on and we're gonna have some lights at the table but this is all the lights in the kitchen will be off so I think that is so cute I absolutely love this thing and then this is what it looks like with the lights on yeah I love it I love it with this big stick Odin and I are playing catch I'm kind of my foot is hurting again like crazy I'm in pain I skate my husband's actually on his way home so he'll probably be here any second and now my feet are killing me so I saw have to actually cook something to eat I'm pretty hungry haven't really eaten anything today give me that you're so cute now you're active huh very active he's like he's gonna be active like this until about like 9:00 9:30 there's a thunderstorm outside yeah what is that Oh Dean hmm so thunderstorm you hear that good boy yeah vegetable we're listening to Germany and Christmas music and then I've got a big thing of spinach which is gonna wilt at the end some get the spinach as well lots of greens and the vegetables those are bell peppers zucchini and eggplant we ended up wilting the spinach at the very end with those vegetables and then adding some feta cheese on top and it just kind of all wilted house really good and some of the meatballs and stuff and just a glass of water in a fancy wine glass some Christmas decor and that is gonna be our dinner tonight yeah who's getting crushed oh you're gonna be so fluffy gonna be so fluffy give me a fluffy boy it's like

    I really liked the stick decoration. I actually do something similar with that in one of my windows. I don't use a branch though.

    I actually like how the curtain rod looked compared to the tree branch. It looked better though this has a lovely whimsical feel to it.

    For Plantar – what really helped me was rolling my foot on a Lacrosse ball! you also want to foam roll your calves and that area above your knees. even tho 1 side may hurt, do both sides. But go to the podiatrist! I went months after pain and I was given an anti-inflammatory medication for immediate relief. the xray showed that I also had a heel spur in the painful foot 🙁 but I was able to reduce the pain and still run the NYC marathon 6 weeks later. I also got insoles for my walking & running shoes. I have flat feet and those insoles relived a lot of pressure and I feel A LOT better now! good luck 🙂 do not skip on the strength training, which was my mistake…

    I love what you did with the branch and the lights and ornaments. I think adding the red lights really brought it together with the red ornaments and made it more christmas-y

    Am I the only person in this planet who's not feeling the Christmas spirit this year? That's sad.

    I love your vlogmas videos so much!
    I'm not really great at interior design and decorating, so it's always nice to get some inspiration from you. Your apartment always looks so chic and stylish, I always find something that I would like to try out for myself.
