This throwback won’t go very far, just back to the Christmas holiday of 2016, leading up to New years. Christmas is pretty much my favorite holiday, although I’ve always had to work during it. This year I will finally have some time off so I’m looking forward to it while reminiscing about last years Christmas. My sister invited us over to her apartment for Christmas so that will be fun.
Besides working, I spent my time making hot chocolates, baking gingerbread cookies, and then I spent some of new years eve playing a game called Year Walk, which is based on Swedish folk lore. It’s rather creepy but also very cool, and it contains a lot of puzzles and symbols you need to remember, as you can see by the drawings I did on my hand. Afterwards I went outside to watch the fireworks, it was really nice.
I’m just hoping this year will be as good, hopefully even better! What would be featured in your Throwback Thursday?
This post is a part of the October Blogging Challenge. Feel free to join in too! It is a great way of planning out posts for an entire month. You don’t have to post every day, you can group days together too if you don’t want to post as frequently.
Super Soccer Noggins is supposedly a Christmas flash game, but to be honest, I don’t think that it has nothing to do with Christmas, at all! Santa has a small cameo in the beginning of the round where he drops the ball down so you can start playing, but the game is really just a silly ball kicking simulator.
As you can see in the screenshot below, there is not a lot that reminds you of Christmas once you get past the menu screen. You choose your team (In reality just one dude) and off you go to kick a tiny ball around with them. You don’t even get anything remotely reminiscent of Christmas when you win either, only some gold to upgrade your little dude! Maybe i should rename this list “Barely Christmas-y games”.
2. Pimp My Sleigh
Pimp My Sleigh is another take on the typical Pimp My Ride type of games. You just customize your vehicle and that is pretty much it! It is a bit more festive since it actually contains Santa’s sleigh, though it would be cooler if you could customize his reindeer too!
One thing that really peeved me about this game was that absolutely none of the red parts matched! Why would you make the parts four different shades of red? Do you not consider the fact that some people want a sleek, polished look on their sleigh? Preposterous!
3. A blocky Christmas
A blocky Christmas is a game where you move a block down to a designated area. That is pretty much the entirety of the game. The levels differ slightly by adding in a longer block that you need to attach yourself to and navigate around, but it is not very challenging, nor very festive. Sure, the board is shaped vaguely like a Christmas tree but that is pretty much it! This seems to be a common theme with flash games; put Christmas in the title and any idiot will play it during the holidays. (Ouch)
4. Santa Dental Care
Santa Dental Care is one of very many dental care games out there. I have no idea why it is so popular to make these, they are very nightmare inducing. There are dental care games for Shrek, for Elsa from Frozen, for pretty much every other fictional character out there, and now for Santa. First off, do you see how creepy the introductory message is?
Because he’s kissing so many children
Why would he kiss children? How hard does he kiss them to get candy stuck in his teeth and having them fall out?
If i wasn’t scared of the dentist before, i sure am now! You use tongs to literally pull his gray teeth out, because they so rotten that he can’t keep them. You use some magical powder to fill in his cavities. You use a drill to expose his cavities even more. I shudder just at the thought of it. Would you enjoy a game like this?
5. Christmas Pop
Christmas Pop is honestly the most festive game out of all of these. It is a Tetris kind of game so expecting a gameplay like that wouldn’t be far off at all. You get clusters of three baubles at a time, rotating and navigation them into a spot that seems good. Once you place them, some of them slide downwards to fill up any space below them so you could like place one on a ledge and let the others slip off. Once you get five-ish baubles of the same color, they disappear. It’s definitely the best game out of all that is on this list, so if you’re going to try any of these, try this one.
This week: Formula 10.0.6 Be Berry Bright exfoliating mud mask
When i was shopping for face masks from H&M, i got this one recommended for me by the store clerk there. I haven’t heard of the brand before but she was praising it and said it was one of the best mud masks she had ever tried, so of course i had to purchase it too. I’m not one to doubt people when they recommend me something, maybe i should be more skeptical in the future.
Luckily i was not disappointed by this product at all! Upon application i noticed tiny dark spots in the light green mask that i discovered was ground green coffee! I have heard a lot about the benefits of green coffee so i got really excited. I didn’t really read the tube all that thoroughly, but it would have been explained that it was in it if i had. Green coffee has benefits like anti-aging, moisturisation and its an anti-oxidant and we can’t get enough of those.It also brightens dull skin and clears the pores, something a lot of people care a lot about.
When you apply it, it feels kind of gritty but it’s not really a bad feeling at all, it smells great too! It feels cooling and calming on the skin and it dries up to be almost clear, with only the pieces of green coffee visible on your skin.
The mask was fairly easy to remove, you just treat it like any other mud mask. I used a washing cloth with lukewarm water to gently wipe it all off and my skin felt so refreshed after. I would definitely repurchase this when i run out. It lasts quite a while too because it’s a big tube with enough for multiple applications. I also got recommended to use it on my neck, but my skin is a lot more sensitive there so I don’t think i would try that.
There isn’t really that much else to say about this mask since it has worked so well for me.
Feels good on the skin, and it feels like it’s actually working
Easy to apply, easy to remove
Could possibly be a bit too rough for people with sensitive skin.
Day 11. What was your favorite childhood Christmas present?
I got him in the summer of 2005, but he was intended to be a Christmas present ♥ He is now 11 and a half years old and I love him so much.
Day 12. What are you grateful for this Christmas?
I am grateful for the support from my friends and family, I’m grateful that i have a home to celebrate Christmas in. I’m grateful for everything my grandmother did for us before passing away. I’m grateful for you guys who are always here.. Thank you. I could probably continue writing forever, but that wouldn’t be much fun to read at all!
Day 9. Who will be sitting with you for Christmas dinner?
This year we won’t be many at all. After my Grandmothers passing we’re down by one, my brother is celebrating with his Fiance’s family and everyone else in our family are having their own celebrations. So we are just going to be my mother, my father, my sister and I. And our three cats, of course. A small party but I guess it’s enough, I’m working every day from Christmas Eve until New Years anyways.
Day 10. Favorite Christmas movie or song.
I’m just going to share my all time favorite Christmas song. Plus one that i find interesting, its not really a Christmas song but it’s so obscure and weird.
I'm a 26 year old girl from Norway. I love blogging about things like make up, skincare, books, video games, life, home decoration, gardening and whatnot. I love getting to know new people, let's start a conversation!
