Etam Beauté Vernis Bikini Woody Alien

For those who doesn't know, Etam is a French lingerie brand, a little bit like Victoria's Secret or La Senza. This Fall, they launched their own beauty line, and of course I bought a little polish to test!

They one that grabbed my fancy is the Woody Alien one, a muted grurple/taupe colour.I would say a purplish version of OPI You don't know Jacques.

It seems that French brands always have that flat and wide brush that I like and makes it easy to apply. I can put my polish on in the morning and not have to clean it because the application is that mess-proof!

Etam Beauté offers many other products, but unfortunately when I bought this I was a little short on time and the store was packed with people, so couldn't really look at the offerings properly.

Saturday's Stuff I Like

I hope you are doing well! I have a bit of the blues this week, I guess it's because I'm going back in a week...

My friend Nissa came for dinner the other night! I made my specialty, rosée sauce pasta. I'm also doing that tomorrow when my friend Aurore is coming. So yes, that'll be me eating rosée sauce pastas twice this week. But it's just so good!

The occasion to do social things. It's that time of the year, and I'm eating out and am with friends a lot these days. I guess it's a little bit like number one, but this is the general idea!

Going out of the office when it's still bright outside. I don't know what happened yesterday but it was light for longer. And the air has that soft and humid quality that I like. Not the cold humid one!

Finding a gift for my papou (dad). It's hard to find something for him. but I did manage to find another gift for him this week. As well as other tiny souvenirs for work colleagues back home.rdy.

Birdy. I hee restaurant thard Wings at the other evening and it reminded me of how good it is. I'm listening to the album right now and it'st really good!

The Christmas Tag

1. What is your favourite Christmas Movie/s?
Love Actually! But I also love Ciné-Cadeau, which is a Christmas tradition for me. It's a collection of kids movies and animation like Tintin, Astérix, Peanuts that is broadcast during the Holidays in Québec!

2. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
On Christmas Eve. I don't think my dad would be able to wait untile the morning :P

3. Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?
When I was a kid, we always spent Christmas with my cousin Julie and her parents, and one year, her dad played Santa Claus, dropping the gifts from the rooftop unto the backyard. I recalled this story to my mum last year and she told me that my uncle actually hurt himself that time!

4. Favourite festive food?
Pigs in blankets! And donuts. My mum is pretty good at doing sweets for the holidays, but because my dad and I have a sweet tooth, she has to hide the treats all over the house and sometimes we discover some later in the new year :)

5. Favourite Christmas gift?
Probably the few earrings my ex gave me. I lost the stones on one of them in the mall in Quebec City a few years ago, but hopefully I made my way back everywhere I went and find all three of them. Luck is on my side!

6. Favourite Christmas scent?
The ones that smell like fir tree.

7. Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
Not really, it's usually the three of us, sometimes with friends or family, but it's never the same.

8. What tops your tree?
A star!

9. As a kid what was the one (crazy, wild, extravagant) gift you always asked for but never received?
I was always asking for the whole Barbie section of the Sears catalog.

10. What's the best part about Christmas for you?
When everyone is relaxed, (after the 24 of course!) and we can enjoy each other's company.

Let me know if you do the tag!
