A quick Christmas Update and Project 10 Pan

Hi Ladies!

This is just a quick Christmassy update to let you know where i've been/what I've been upto and to wish you all a slightly belated merry christmas and a happy new year!

I had an amazing christmas day, I got absolutely spoilt and can't wait to play with all my new things! I had a lovely christmas dinner at my boyfriends with his family, and then went to my dads today for a 2nd christmas dinner yum yum! We even had a little tiny bit of snow where I am which was lovely :-)

I was at work every day for the week before christmas and i'm back tomorrow (boo hoo!) which means I am not going to be able to hit the sales for a few days! I have been saving up for a few things which I am hoping will go into the sales so fingers crossed they are still there I also need to get a couple more birthday presents for my boyfriend who conveniently decided to have a birthday a week after christmas!

I have decided to embark on project 10 pan, as I definately do not need to purchase any more cosmetics at the moment and I have quite a few things which i'm close to finishing! This is the first time I've tried it and i'm quite excited so I'll keep you updated on my progress! Let me know if you are planning a post christmas project 10 pan too!

Hope you all had a fabulous day, enjoy the rest of the holidays!

and just because no one likes a post without a picture - Here's a fantastically random one of me on a meal out with one of my friends before christmas enjoying some bbq ribs (my fave food ever!! - and yes I ate them all!)

Speak Soon!

Christmas time Ins and Outs :-)

Hi Ladies,

I can't believe a week today it will be Christmas day! I'm so excited! I thought I'd fill you in on my current ins and outs


Snow! It has been snowing all day today and it looks so pretty outside - however its far too cold when I open the door for me to venture out!

Sparkly/glittery makeup - Fabulous for the christmas party season!

The pantomime - I'm going on monday night and I cannot wait, I love panto!

Day off :-) today was my day off work and I am still my pj's and dressing gown! I have had a great day relaxing and doing nothing! - However from tomorrow I am working 9 hours every day untill christmas day - bad times!

Atrixo - Its keeping my hands lovely and moisturised this winter, I love their handbag friendly sized pots :-)

Christmas meals and parties! I went to two this week and had such a fun time, its great when everyone is in the festive spirit! (see yummy christmas party lunch below!)

Out (not many this time yay!)

Wrapping - I know I know bah humbug! I'm really good at it if the things are in boxes/rectangular however my wrapping is appauling if they're not!

Ugg boots + the rain/snow - Its too cold to wear any other footwear but I don't want to ruin my lovely grey uggs in this weather!

and thats everything, I hope you're all enjoying the snow if its snowing where you are and have a great weekend!

Clothes Show Live Haul! :-)

Hi girlies,

I'm so sorry this post is extremely late (I've been meaning to do it for ages!) But better late than never! I just wanted to show you a few things that I got from the amazing clothes show live a couple of weeks ago. Firstly I have to say a massive thankyou to Lauren over at
Lauren Loves as I won the tickets in a competition on her fabulous blog! I'd never been to the clothes show before and I had an amazing time so thankyou so much Lauren!

So first up I got two makeup goodie bags! (exciting!) The first one was a Barry M goodie bag which included the 13 products pictured below and the cute makeup bag for just £10.00!

I was so excited when I purchased this, as apart from a few dazzle dusts I actually didn't own any barryM products! So this has given me the perfect opportunity to try some things out. I already love the brow gel and nail paint in violet gold shimmer (which I blogged about in my last post!) I'd definately let you know what I think of the others!

I also purchased a jelly pong pong goodie bag for £12.00 which contained the products pictured below - how cute are they?!

This is another brand which I'd never tried before so I'm looking forward to trying these out too. The goodie bag contained an eye shadow taffy (thats the little pot with the bird on top - its a sort of cream eye shadow) two lip orchids (these are similar to the sleek pout polishes), love rouge which is a cheek and lip tint and a set of fake lashes and mini mascara which are pictured below.

I cannot wait to try the lashes they look so gorgeous! and the mini mascara is perfect for fitting in my handbag. Speaking of handbags....I picked up this gorgeous Max C handbag for £20.00 :-D

I have literally used this bag every day since I got it! I am in love! Its deceptively big with an adjustable strap and two big compartments with the cutest interior (its sort of like a big skyline skyline with little hearts). I love the gold studs on the front, and it has two big gold chunky zips -super cute!

I also purchased a dress, a juicy couture blouse (another bargain - £20.00!) and some presents for friends and family :-)

I had a fantastic time and will definately be going again next year! Have any of you been before?

Speak Soon,

My current fave nails of the day! :-)

Hi Ladies!

I just wanted to do a quick post about nail varnish I am absolutely in love with at the moment, it is the most gorgeous colour ever and I have had it on for 4 or 5 days now with only the tiniest bit of chipping! It is Barry M's nail paint in number 280 violet gold shimmer.

I picked this nail paint up along with 3 others in a barry m goodie bag which I bought from the clothes show live in Birmingham last weekend (I had such an amazing time super big blog post about it coming soon!). I have never seen a nail polish anywhere close to this colour before, it is super pretty and unique and I have had so many compliments on it! It is a pale lavendar/violet with a gold shimmer when it catches the light - so so lovely!

These polishes were my first ever barry m nail paints (I know, I know I am so late on the bandwagon!). However I am so impressed I will definately be picking up some more and I think I might get a few as stocking fillers for some of my friends and family :-) what are your favourite barry m nail paints?

Hope you're having a fabulous weekend!

Bargain Alert! : Tesco Vitamin E skincare range

Hi Ladies,

So, I popped into tesco last week and as I went to pick up my trusty tesco vitamin E face wipes for 27p (yup thats right 27p!) I noticed that they had added some more products to this range and they were on three for two.

As I can't resist a bargain I picked up the face scub, facial wash and make up remover which were all 69p each so I got all three for £1.38! (in my excitement, I completely forgot to buy the face wipes but have been back for them since!) So here are the three products pictured below.

I am really impressed with these! The face scrub is lovely, and refreshing, it is quite a gentle exfoliator which really suits my skin as it is quite sensitive and anything too abrasive is a definate no no for me! The eye make up remover is fab too and I got it as just the right time as my trusty superdrug camomile eye makeup remover ran out yesterday! I have not used the face wash as much as the other two so I can't really comment on it, however it is pH balanced and paraben free which gets a thumbs up from me!

i'm not sure how much longer the three for two offer is on, but even without that these products are still a bargain and I will definately be repuchasing! I also picked up a little tub of carmex lip balm fo 60p! great work tesco!

Ins and Outs :-D

Hi ladies!

As its getting closer to the end of the week (friday tomorrow yay!) I thought I'd fill you in on whats in and whats out for me :-)


New moon! - I went to see it last night and I really enjoyed it, I'm torn between Edward and Jacob though - I love them both! I havn't read the twilight books but I've asked for them for Christmas!

Advent Calendars - I have one from Marks and Spencers this year, my boyfriend brought it round for me yesterday so I got to have three chocolates this morning - yum yum!

Layering Scarfs - Its so cold at the moment, I've taken to wearing two scarfs! I normally twin a patterned scarf with plain scarf, and I actually really like how it looks!

Christmas Parties - I have quite a few Christmas parties to go to next week and I'm really excited, I've already got my outfits planned!


Getting home from uni/work to a really cold house! I think its about time we put the heating on a timer!

Running out of lots of essential makeup items at once, this week I have run out my fave foundation, under eye concealer and mascara!

dry skin - the cold weather is really drying out my skin, especially on my hands. Its a good job I have Atrixo!

X factor Semi finals this week end - How has it got this far already!? i can't believe its the finale next week, my saturday nights will not be the same once X factor has gone!

Hope you're having a good week!
