Just a quick little post to say Merry Christmas and thank you for following my little blog. I’m planning on making a few changes to it in the new year, so stay tuned for that… Hopefully you’ll like it!

I hope you all have a lovely Christmas and New Year if you celebrate it. If not, I just hope you enjoy this time of year and that 2016 brings you closer to your dreams.

Christmas Wishlist

Obviously I’m not expecting to get all or even some of these things, but this is just what it currently on my wish list for Christmas, in case you are in need of inspiration 😉

I’ve been wanting to try Stila for ages and this set seems to be a good way to try a few different things at once. It comes with a deluxe sized mascara, one of their famous lip glazes along with 12 mostly neutral eyeshadows in varying finishes.
A couple of my friends have this and when I smelled it I thought it was the perfect home scent. It’s fresh, a tiny bit fruity, with a woody base and isn’t overpowering. I know some reed diffusers, even though they have a nice scent, can be so strong they become offensive. I don’t feel that way about this one, and I think this would just make my home smell lovely.

Tarte Lips For Daze LipSurgence Set – $34
Another brand that I have wanted to try for a while. In this set you get 3 matte and 2 satin lip tints in an array of shades to suit every occasion.

Origins Superstar Minis – £35
I picked up a little Origins set some time last year and loved everything in it. This kit includes the GinZing moisturiser and eye cream which were in that set, but this one also comes with High Potency Night-A-Mins, Checks and Balances, Modern Friction, Clear Improvement, and Make a Difference. I have high hopes that my skin would love all of these!

Neewer Ring Light – £69.99
Not something everyone is going to have on their wish list I’m sure, but I’d really like a ring light for filming videos. I currently have a light box but it takes up a lot of space in my small room, and this ring light can be attached to my tripod along with my camera, thus saving me space whilst still allowing me to film in less-than-ideal lighting situations!

A Girl’s Best Friend by Lindsey Kelk – £3.85
Lindsey Kelk is the author of my favourite books – the I Heart series. She’s back with a new Christmassy book based in New York, this time with Tess from the About A Girl series as the focus, although I’ve heard you may run into Angela and Jenny Lopez in those pages… I cannot wait to get my hands on this!

Lisa Angel Mainland UK Pendant – £14
I’d never heard of Lisa Angel until a friend bought me one of their necklaces for my birthday and I was hooked. They have so many lovely pieces of jewellery, a lot of unique pieces that I’ve not seen anywhere else, and the best part is it’s so affordable! I love dainty jewellery and this UK pendant is one that I definitely have my eye on.

I’m sure I could think of a few more things if I sat here for long enough, but these are just the first few things that came to mind.


What’s on your wish list this year?

Lush Holiday Haul 2013

Lush Holiday Haul
It’s the most wonderful time of the year…. Especially when it comes to Lush products. The holiday stuff that Lush comes out with each year are always my favourite things. In fact, my most favourite thing that Lush does ever is their Cinders Bath Ballistic, so I always make sure to stock up on them when the holidays roll around.So, of course, as soon as Lush came out with their holiday collection this year I had to pick up some of the cute new additions, as well as grab a few old favourites. Here’s what I bought:

❤ Bombardino
❤ Luxury Lush Pud
❤ Snowman
❤ Christmas Panguin
❤ Candy Mountain
❤ Cinders x4!!

I also grabbed a small tin of Charity Pot at the checkout, because it was only £1, the money goes towards charity (hence the name!) and why not?!

Check out my video below if you want to know a little more about each of these..
