Blogmas 2014: Christmas Trip to Graz and a Graz Haul

What I really love about December are Christmas trips. My boy and I decide to go visit one each year. Last year we went to Salzburg, well, this year we decided to go nearer, in Graz. I adore Graz, to me it's the most beautiful city and I definitely see myself living there. The second thing that made me very happy about the trip is shopping. In the center of Graz are many stores that sell products that are not available by us and it feels amazing looking and swatching all the testers of the products. Although the shopping in December isn't the most nice, because the stores are small and crowdy, so I didn't have time to check everything I wanted. 

The first place we visited is Zotter, a chocolate store and a factory. They have such a huge selection of different tastes of chocolate and the ones that I tried were very good.


Then we went in Gnas, on a family farm where they sell Christmas decorations and wreaths. 


Next stop was a church Mariatrost


And finally we arrived in Graz. We had a little tour around the center and then we had a free time. Unfortunatelly it started to rain cats and dogs in the evening, but the trip was still very pretty. 


And now let's go to the haul part. In H&M I bought a set of 6 nail polishes and few rings. I bought the set because of a second polish in it. It's a gorgeous glittery polish. Four of the polishes are a part of my December giveaway, so if you want to win them, click here


Since we only have Yves Rocher in Ljubljana and I don't go much there (I love physical stores when it comes to smelly stuff, because I have to sniff at product before buying it) I decided to go to the store in Graz. I bough few of their shower gels, because I really adore them. I got Cocoa&Orange, Magnolia Flower and Coffee Beans scents. I'm not a huge fan of coffee, but I love its scent, so I had to get this shower gel. And the Cacao&Orange gel smells literally like dark chocolate with orange flavour, amazing. 


I also went to The Body Shop, but there were so many people in there that I barely had a place to check everything. But I did smell vanilla scented products and I loved them so much that I wanted to get some. They had gift packages, so I took two that contained a shower gel, a soap, a hand cream and a body butter.


I can't believe that our DM doesn't have all Ebelin makeup tools. I took the chance to peek into an Austrian one and bought a makeup sponge, a blending brush and a curler. 


I visited three more stores. In Lush I bought Santa's lip scrub, because I really wanted to try it. In Flormar my darling got me a glittery nail polish, which is also amazing, and in Mac I got a lipstick that was on my WL for a very long time, a Lady Danger. It's so exciting to finally own a Mac product. :)


Did you go on any Christmas trip this year? What do you think about my haul? Thank you for reading!

  2. You got some nice stuff. Now that I've tried TBS body butters I finally understand what the fuzz was all about. I'll get more only they're on sale, though.

      Meni je kar žal, da nisem vzela več gelov, samo enega.

  4. Super slike, prav pričarajo mi božično vzdušje! <3
    Pa seveda odličen nakup, jaz komaj čakam naslednji mesec, da spet obiščem Graz. :))

    Sem ti fauš za TBS izdelke, verjamem da dišijo odlično. :)
    Za MAC pa sem jaz tudi zelo vesela, da sem se pred kratkim dokopala do njihovih šmink. :P Se že veselim ocene.
    Lush božični piling pa diši zelo njami, tudi jaz sem ga nekaj časa nazaj kupila, je kar must za božične praznike.

    1. Hvala. <3
      Res dišijo lepo. No, saj ko boš obiskala Graz naslednji mesec, lahko sama povohaš (če grep v center). :) Šminko bom ocenila, čeprav bom mogoče počakala na toplejše dneve, bom videla. :)

    1. Yay. :) I wasn't planning on reviewing them, but I can write few words if you want. :)
      Omg, the Zotter store was so amazing, but we didn't had a lot of time, so I couldn't check everything in peace. But they have soooo many chocolate tastes. :)

    1. Gradec je itak najlepše mesto, meni dosti lepše kot Ljubljana. :)
      Hvala. Mi je kar malo žal, da je bila v TBS taka gužva, ker sploh nisem uspela vsega pogledati.

  7. Jaz grem naslednji vikend. Si bila sama ali z agencijo? Me zanima, ker se bojim da bom imela premalo casa za trgovine :) So ful oddaljene ena od druge?

    1. Z agencijo sem bila. Mi smo imeli ful skoraj 4 ure prosto v centru mesta, tako da je bilo ogromno časa za nakupovanje, trgovine so pa dokaj blizu, ker so skoraj vse v isti ulici v centru, tako da ti bo ziher uspelo obiskati vsako. Edino zdaj decembra zna biti gužva noter, trgovine pa tudi niso velike. Maš pa Lush, The Body Shop, Douglas, Yves Rocher, Mac (ampak se ne spomnim točno imena drogerije), v Karstner&Oster imaš DM, Flormar je blizu.

  8. No, šele ta vikend mi bo ratala it :) Komaaaaaj čakam. Majo ful znižanj, akcij v MACu in TBS? Kdaj ste se pa vračali domov?

    1. V Macu niso imeli nobene akcije takrat, mogoče je zdaj drugače, ker je tik pred božičem, TBS pa ma kar različne akcije, lahko kupiš različne sete, dobila pa sem tudi 20% popust na celoten nakup, ker sem vzela njihovo vrečko za 20 centov (gre v dobrodelne namene). :D
      Domov pa smo šli okrog sedmih. So pa ob sobotah trgovine itak odprte samo do šestih.
