Secret Santa – Timisoara beauty bloggers meeting

Hi everybody,

Last week Romina came with the idea of doing a Secret Santa between us,  bloggers from Timisoara. The idea was well received by me and 4 other girls.

Buna tuturor,

Saptamana trecuta Romina a venit cu ideea de a face un Mos Craciun Secret intre noi, bloggeritele din Timisoara. Ideea a fost primita cu bucurie de catre mine si alte 4 fete.

If you don’t know what Secret Santa is, I’ll explain you briefly: all of the participants’ names are placed into a hat, box, etc. and mixed up. Each person then chooses one name from the box, but doesn’t tell anyone which name was picked. He/she is now responsible for buying a gift for the person selected. You choose a budget that everybody is comfortable with and when he/she wraps their gift, he/she just labels it with the recipients name but doesn’t indicate whom the present is from.

Daca nu stiti ce este Mos Craciun Secret, va voi explica pe scurt: toate numele participantilor sunt plasate intr-o palarie, cutie, etc. si amestecate. Fiecare persoana alege apoi un nume din cutia restectiva, dar nu spune nimanui care nume a fost ales. El/ea este acum responsabil pentru cumpararea unui cadou pentru persoana selectata. Alegeti un buget cu care toata lumea sa fie de acord, apoi cand el/ea impacheteaza cadoul, el/ea scrie pe cutie doar numele beneficiarului, dar nu ofera indicii in ceea ce primeste Mosul.

Even though Santa was supposed to be a secret for each one of us, we decided that we should tell because this is an opportunity to get to know each other better.

That being said, I had to buy a gift for Teodora and received the gift that you can see in the picture below from Anca.

Chiar daca Mosul trebuia sa fie secret, ne-am decis ca ar trebui sa ne spunem, aceasta fiind o oportunitate de a ne cunoaste mai bine.
Acestea fiind spuse, am cumparat cadou pentru Teodora si mi-am primit darul, pe care-l puteti vedea in fotografia de mai jos, de la Anca.

  • AVON Femme creme souffle – it’s a lightweight body creme and semlls sweet, but I like it a lot. I used it 3 times so far.
  • Golden Rose lipstick – from this brand I only tried a nial polish and I liked it. I’m curious to see how I’ll get along with this one.
  • AVON LUXE mascara – I tried it once and I like the volume it builds. Also it didn’t flake all night long so I can’t wait to put it more to the test.
  • 3 Balea face masks – one with Dead Sea minerals, one with clay and other with grape seed oil. I never tried any of these but I can’t wait for my next “spa night”.
  • candy cane – what can be more Christmasy than a candy cane!?
  • AVON Femme creme souffle – este o crema de corp usoara care miroase dulce, dar imi place foarte mult. Am folosit-o de 3 ori pana acum.
  • AVON LUXE mascara – am incercat-o o data si mi-a placut volumul pe care il construieste. De asemenea nu ajunge sa fie prea uscata pe gene  pe parcursul serii si sa-mi pice bucati de produs pe obraz. Abia astept sa o supun si mai multor teste.
  • ruj Golden Rose – de la acest brand nu am incercat decat o oja care mi-a placut. Sunt foarte curioasa sa vad cum ma impac cu acest ruj.
  • 3 masti de fata de la Balea – una cu minerale din Marea Moarta, una cu argila si cealalta cu ulei din samburi de struguri. Nu am incercat nici una dintre ele, dar abia astept urmatoarea seara de “relaxare si spa”.
  • bomboane in forma de baston – ce poate fi mai mult in spiritul Craciunului descat aceste bomboane!?

I never tried any of the products above and I’m excited to try them more. Thank you (Not-So-)Secret Santa!

After all this gift exchanging we stayed and talked some more about beauty, makeup products and holidays while we were sipping a cup of hot chocolate.

The 6 Secret Santa from beauty blogging meeting from Timisoara were:

Did you had a Secret Santa this year?

What do you want to receive for Christmas?

N-am incercat nici unul dintre produsele de mai sus pana acum, dar sunt incantata ca le-am primit acum. Mulțumesc Mos Craciun (Nu-Tocmai-) Secret!

Dupa toate aceste schimburi de cadouri, am mai ramas sa mai povestim despre frumusete, produse de machiaj si destre sarbatorile de iarna in timp ce savuram o cana de ciocolata calda.
