The run up to Christmas can be a crazy one, running around like mad people zooming in and out of shops picking up last minute bits and bobs just so we feel like we’ve actually made an effort to buy people gifts, but sometimes I find half the time I end up picking up the most random things just to build the pile up, I’m famous amongst my friends and family for always leaving my Christmas shopping till Christmas Eve which is a mistake I WILL NOT be making this year, and even to my surprise I’m already half way through my list! ( pat on the back for Katharine)   But before I ventured into the world of blogging I never had the help of fellow bloggers posting up there ideas for Christmas gifts and stocking fillers and reading through these posts has proven…

One of the things I think is so important is taking time out for yourself, we all lose ourselves in day to day life, friends and family and even partners that we never really take time to step back and breath and take time where we really and truly pamper ourselves, I don’t always think pampering is taking that long hot bubble bath or sitting back and relaxing with a face mask and your favourite box set, even though it is another important factor of taking some time out, but doing little things for yourself is also pampering, things that you enjoy things that help you switch off from the outside and focus on yourself.

So I was super excited to give it a try. So the next evening I ran myself a hot…

As many people know I’m absolutely obsessed with NYX, I started purchasing there products a year or so ago, and first off I couldn’t believe how affordable they were as a brand, after seeing people using it on Youtube and Instagram and seeing their results, I never imagined it would be so affordable, but when I actually started using the products I was hooked, and now I think nearly every product I apply to my face in the morning is a NYX cosmetic. Last month I took my monthly shop to boots and I saw that they had released some new products part of their Metallic range, i picked up the metallic eyeshadow palette and instantly fell in love and that was even before I had used it, and once I used it I haven’t used any other palette since, it is honestly the most…

I’ve been a fan of So..? fragrance for a while, its been my go to spray that I keep in my handbag for the throughout the day spritz, so when I was sent some of their latest fragrances I was beyond over the moon not only are they beautifully packaged but they smell incredible! I was sent three body mists and one perfume, two of the body mists come in a longer more colourful bottle one is called fresh floral and the other sweet Pea, both equally just as beautiful, but both completely different, sweet pea is indeed quite sweet but not at all heavy, and fresh floral is exactly that! fresh and floral with a peach blossom and peony flower fragrance, these mists are perfect for on the go and the perfect size for your handbag, not only that but they looks fantastic on…
