♥ MERRY CHRISTMAS ♥

It's Christmas Eve! I can't believe how quickly this year has flown by. Who's excited? I am for sure!

I find that Christmas is a time for appreciating what you have and the good people around you. I hope you have a very merry Christmas with the people you love the most and get everything you wanted! Enjoy the presents, music, food and the whole day.

One of my favourite things about Christmas is the music so I will end this post with one of my favourites. Are you looking forward to Christmas?


 Merry Christmas!

♥ Christmas Nails! ♥


This year, there are two things on my nails that are very suitable for Christmas, red and glitter. How much more festive can you get?


I'm wearing Barry M Nail Paint in Bright Red because it is a very bright, classic red colour, which is perfect for Christmas as it matches Father Christmas, Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer and more festive things! I've also added Barry M's Red Glitter Nail Paint for a little touch of Christmas sparkle.


This was quite a random post, but I hope you liked it. Are you wearing anything on your nails this Christmas?

♥ Wishlist - December 2013 ♥


Hello Everyone,
 

I'm back! I really do apologise for being away for so long again. I will be a lot more organised from now on and continue to make my blog the best it can be. Can I just add that as I'm writing this it is only 9 DAYS until Christmas? Yippee! Just one more week left of school to go, then I'm off for the holidays. This really is my favourite time of year. Are you looking forward to Christmas?

Today I am back with a wish list. I think I will do one every month! It's my first try, so it might not be the best quality. Does anyone know how to make them better? Please let me know. These are just a few items I've had my eye on this month.

1. Teal Crochet Collar Skater Dress, New Look £14.99 - Skater dresses are a favourite of mine because they are flattering and easy to style. I love this dress because of the cute collar and the colour. This would look great paired with tights and cute shoes like brogues.

2. Revlon ColourBurst Lip Butter in Peach Parfait £7.99 - I am one of the few people that doesn't own any of these! I like peach/pink colours so this colour looks great. I've heard many good things about these lip butters!

3. White High Top Converse £48 - I've wanted a pair of white converse for a while because I think they are very nice, versatile and good quality. I'll try and keep these as clean as I can!

4. Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey - Along with the lip butters, I haven't got any of these either! Out of all the shades, Honey is the one I would like to try first.

That's all for my December wish list. What's on your Christmas list this year?

Birthday Haul!

Hello Everyone!

So, it was my 15th birthday a couple of weeks ago (28th October), and I thought I would share some of the fashion and beauty gifts I received for my birthday. Hope you like it!

For my birthday, I had a went out for a meal with my family the night before. Then I had a lovely chilled out day at home on 28th. It was a lovely day, but it's crazy to think I'm 15!

Anyway, onto the presents!

♥ Jacket: New Look ♥ I've wanting a fake leather jacket for ages, an I thought brown would be better for me than black. This fits perfectly and it's pretty, too!

♥ Jumper: H&M ♥ This jumper is very comfortable and I like the colour, too!

♥ Top: New Look ♥ I like this top a lot because it's loose and comfortable and has a darker floral print which makes it good for Autumn and Winter!

♥ Boots: H! by Henry Holland at Debenhams's ♥ Like the jacket, I've been after some brown ankle boots for a long time and these are perfect for me. They have a little heel and them but they are super comfy and versatile.
♥ Scarf: H&M ♥ This scarf is very autumnal and I love the colours on it!
 
♥ Perfume: Taylor by Taylor Swift ♥ I'm not very good at describing scents, but I would say this is quite a girly but sophisticated scent. It smells lovely and the bottle is pretty too!

 


♥ Barry M Lip Gloss in 12, Barry M Lash Vegas Black Mascara ♥ Two brilliant products from one of my favourite make-up brands!

♥Barry M Matte Nail Paint in Crush, Barry M Textured Glitter Nail Paints in Princess and Duchess♥ Very interesting but good nail paints which are great for Autumn, Winter and Christmas!

♥MUA Undress M Too Eyeshadow Palette♥ This palette is quite popular in the beauty blog/youtbe world and I'm glad I've got it. Basically a dupe of the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette, this provides eight lovely neutral shades to create multiple looks. I love it!

♥MUA Mosaic Blush in English Rose♥ I like the different colours in this blush and together they create a lovely pink colour. However the finish on the cheeks is quite shimmery, but I like it!

That concludes my birthday haul! I hope you liked it. I will do some more posts about a few of these products in more detail soon. Have you tried any, or have any of the clothes?

Bye For Now!

Autumn and Winter Nail Polishes

Hello Everyone!
 
As you can see form the title, today I am going to show you my essential nail polishes for the Autumn and Winter. For me, this time of year is all about darker, neutral colours, colours like the leaves on my nails. I also love shimmery/glittery nails, especially for Christmas! Here is my selection:

 
"Khaki Madness" from H&M is a beautiful Khaki colour with a gold shimmer to it. One of my favourites!
 
"St. James" from Nails Inc. I think that red is an essential colour for the winter, it reminds me of Christmas!
 
 "Lucky Penny" from Avon is one of my favourites. This shimmery orange colour a similar colour to the leaves falling of the trees, which is why it's a perfect colour for Autumn.
 
 
 "Raspberry" from Barry M. You can't really go wrong with a Burgundy nail polish as it's such a popular colour at this time of year.
 
"Cappuccino" from Barry M. I would say it's as brownish grey colour, a lovely neutral colour if you don't want to wear a huge pop of colour.

 
 "Golden Vision" from Avon is a very glittery gold. It's perfect for Christmas. It looks great on it's own and also on top of other colours like red.
 
                                    "Victoria Street" from Nails Inc., is a lovely metallic grey.

"Noir Emerald" from Avon is beautiful, shimmery dark green. This colour appears to be very popular for Autumn and Winter, especially with clothes!

"Black" from Barry M is my final pick. I think black is a great colour for winter as it's very dark. Also, it looks amazing with glittery nail polish over it to add a bit of colour.
 
So there are some of my top Autumn and Winter nail polishes. Look out for a lookbook post coming soon! What are your top nail polishes for this time of year?
 
Bye For Now!

The Body Shop Shea Body Butter

 
Hello Everyone!

Today I am going to share one of my favourite products with you, Shea Body Butter from The  Body Shop!

On the long list of my favourite shops is The Body Shop. I love how their products are made with natural ingredients, and are good for the environment, not just for our skin! Every time I go in there I just want to buy everything!

A few weeks ago I picked up one of their bestselling body butters. Usually they are sold at £13, but when I went they had 50% off on all body butters so I couldn't resist! £6 = bargain! I took me a quite a while to choose one as they all smelt lovely, but eventually I chose the Shea Body Butter.

As soon as I take off the lid, I instantly smell the delicious nutty scent. It contains Community Fair Trade Shea butter and cocoa butter from Ghana, and organic babassu oil from Brazil. During the colder months, it's important to prevent your skin from becoming dry and this product does the job perfectly.

I definitely recommend this product. It's such good quality and has a suitable sized tub containing 200ml of product in it. However, if you don't like this scent, there are plenty of amazing body butters form The Body Shop that work just as well.

I hope you enjoyed reading this post. Have you ever bought anything from The Body Shop? What are your favourites?

Bye For Now!

August Favourites

Hello Everyone!

This is my first favourites, how exciting! Anyway these are the things I have been loving this month, followed by highlights of the past month!

The first thing I have been loving is the Maybelline Falsies Mascara. It gives me long and voluminous lashes, but it can be a tiny bit clumpy at times. However it's a great mascara and I will probably repurchase it again.

Another make-up product I have been loving this month is the Collection Extreme 24 Hour Felt Tip Liner in black.It also stays on all day and is very easy to use! I can definitely see myself repurchasing this.

My last make-up item is the Rimmel London Stay Matte Powder, and so far it has shown very good results! It's not too cakey but helps to keep my make-up on throughout the day with very little touch-ups.
 

Now onto other beauty products, next is The Body Shop Coconut Body Mist. I got this when I was in London and it smells so good.  It's very refreshing and relaxing scent and I like the bottle, too! I would like to try more body mists from The Body Shop in the future.

August has been a fun filled month for me! I went on holiday with my family which was amazing as always, went to London with my mum and I hope to go there again soon! And of course, CarFest was a lot of fun, too!

 
Hope you enjoyed my August Favourites! I am looking to forward to seeing what September brings! I'm so happy that Autumn is here now, I love this season. Time for being warm and cosy, new fashion, as well as all the other good things about Autumn.

What have you been loving this month?

Bye For Now!
