Christmas Time Ins and Outs :-)

Hi ladies,

Sorry its been a while, hope you're all ready and excited for Christmas - I definately am (excited that is - ready....not so much!) I thought I'd give you a little update with my current ins and outs :-)


Revlon photoready foundation - I ran out of my holy grail foundation last week (Stila's illuminating skin foundation) and as this has a similar concept I thought I'd give it a try. A week in and I am pretty impressed! This is a really good colour match for my skin (I'm using 002 vanilla) its light and has great staying power.

Costa frosted mint hot chocolate - Heavenly!

Christmas Decorations - I love having the Christmas decorations up in the house, it always looks so empty when they go down! We have a real Christmas tree this year which looks fab!

The Puffy Pony - This is a hair styling tool which my mum bought me from Claires accessories. It is basically a comb which you put just above the hair band of your pony tail then let your hair fall over it. It has helped me achieve some fabulously voluminous up do's!

Love Actually - I adore this film, My favourite part is below - It brings a tear to my eye every time!

The weather - My goodness its cold! it seems to be rarely out of the minus figures at the moment, I'm currently sporting two duvets on my bed and my beloved uggs rarely leave my feet!

Pens...without lids your leather handbag - Enough said!

Wrapping Christmas presents - I love buying presents for people, but wrapping them not so much! Especially ones which are awkward shapes, I always seem to cut the wrapping paper just a little too short too - what a fail!

X factor - I'm sad its over! I liked Matt, but I really wanted Rebecca to win. Who were you rooting for?

and thats everything! I hope you all have a really lovely Christmas and a fab New Year :-)

(Slightly Belated) November Favourites! :-)

Hi Ladies,

So its time for my slightly late November favourites. Sorry for the delay - with the snow, the rising panic of not having bought many people Christmas presents and far too much work to do life has got a little hectic! Anyway, enough rambling and on to the products!

1. Soap and Glory Girligo - This spray on body moisturiser has been on of my go to products since the cold weather started. Its really quick and easy to use, it leaves my skin feeling moisturised and refreshed and it smells delicious!

2. St Tropez wash off instant glow body lotion - I was sent this for review purposes and have been so impressed that I have bought it to go in a certain someones Christmas stocking (I hope they don't read this!). It gives a lovely natural golden colour, and the formula leaves my skin feeling smooth and soft. This is by far my favourite instant tan, look out for a full review coming soon :)

3. MAC Creme Cup Lipstick - This is my current go to lip colour. Its a subtle, glossy pink perfect for day to day wear and as it's a cremesheen it has a lovely, moisturising formula.

4. Sephora by OPI Metro Chic - This is the first of my two Winter nail varnish loves. Metro Chic is a dirty lilac toned grey. It looks fab with chunky knits and boots :-)

5. OPI My private Jet - I forgot how much I love my private jet! Its a unique glistening grey/brown. One of my favourite OPI colours.

6.Organic 7th Heaven Chocolate Nourishing Mask - I've not been feeling too great lately, and a bit of a pamper with a face mask always cheers me up! This deep cleansing mask is one of my favourites, it contains organic cocoa butter and peppermint and leaves my skin feeling lovely. It does of course smell fantastic too!

7. MAC MSF Natural - A little boring I know but I lost this product a few days ago and couldn't believe how much I struggled without of it! I apply this with my MAC 187 all over my face after concealing any problem areas and I'm done! It has great staying power, and gives my face a flawless finish.

and thats everything! Hope your all getting into your Christmas shopping, are you asking for anything exciting for christmas?

Have a fab week!
