What I got for Christmas!


I posted a What I Got For Christmas video on my channel yesterday but I think its always nice to write a post as some of you might not watch youtube.  I am so very grateful for all of my gifts and I personally love reading these posts. I was so excited when I opened the Laura Mercier body creme set that I squealed, they all smell amazing. The Origins energy boosting moisturiser has been on my wishlist for ages and I can't wait to try it. Then we have the Body Shop ginger sparkle collection which smells divine, I've already tried the body polish and its lovely. As I was working Boxing Day I happened to see the Thierry Mugler Alien fragrance set on offer and I grabbed it straightaway, its definitely my signature scent. I also got a Zara skirt which will be featured in tomorrows outfit post. One of my favourite things about Christmas is receiving new pyjamas, as you can see I pretty much asked for toiletries, pyjamas and chocolate this year!

What was your favourite present? I'd love to know what wonderful gifts you received!

My Christmas


 Christmas, can you believe its been and gone already?! I had such a lovely day spent with my family, watching Christmas films and the Downton Abbey special. I ate a splendid roast dinner and gorged on far too many chocolates, as well as my dessert of apple pie and cream. I was back at work on Boxing Day so Christmas feels like ages ago for me, I have however had a nice break without my laptop for a few days and spent my evenings reading or watching Breaking Bad. I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas, next up is New Year, eek where has 2013 gone?!

BLOGMAS Day 24 - Christmas Eve Antics


Can you believe it's Christmas Eve?! It's the last day of Blogmas, I hope you have all enjoyed my posts this month! I've thoroughly enjoyed blogging and thankyou for all of your comments too! I'm so pleased to have completed my goal of posting everyday upto Christmas and I can't wait to blog more in the New Year too. Having had today off of work I've made the most of it spending time with both friends and family, I met up for tea and cake at Costa with my closest friends (thanks for letting me use your photo Jadine!) and had a good old natter. I've since come home and watched various festive films that are on the telly and caught up on all of my favourite vlogmas videos. I just want to wish you all a Merry Christmas, I hope you have a wonderful day spent with your loved ones!

BLOGMAS Day 22 - It's nearly Christmas!


Can you believe that it's nearly Christmas?! Eek. I'm currently snuggled up with a blanket watching Night at the Museum 2 and catching up on all of my favourite vlogmas videos. Today I got to catch up with some friends over a hot chocolate, its always lovely to spend time with them. I then popped to the shops with Mich (my mum for those of you who don't know) and I bought the cutest Lindt chocolate bear, unfortunately I won't be tucking into it tonight as its a present for my Nan. It's my last working day before Christmas tomorrow, yay! 

Hope you're all having a festive Sunday.

BLOGMAS Day 19 - Up the Amp


 I decided to treat myself to an early Christmas present, I'm a bit obsessed with purple toned lipstick at the moment. Whilst perusing the MAC counter I swatched various dark lippy's including Rebel, Cyber and the one pictured - Up the Amp. I can't wait to wear it with a simple winged liner on the eye. I've also added another MAC lipstick on my wishlist, the Viva Glam The Original lipstick which is a divine deep burgundy red colour.

Are there any MAC lipsticks on your wishlist?

BLOGMAS Day 18 - Thus Far


This week thus far,

It was my day off yesterday and I met up with one of my besties, we had some lunch at Wagamama's (yum!) and I also made a cheeky MAC purchase which I'll show you in tomorrow's post. We stopped off to grab a festive Costa hot chocolate and saw that the Coca Cola truck was in town! I edited a new video for my Youtube channel and caught up on some telly in the evening.

At the moment I'm not feeling too great, there's all sorts going around at work but I'm hoping I don't catch anything in time for Christmas, last year I slept most of Christmas day! 

Hope you're all well and having a good week.

BLOGMAS Day 16 - Monday Rambles


I'm currently sat on my bed flicking between Youtube and Bloglovin (which is how I spend most of my evenings) with a hot chocolate and a slice of birthday cake, thanks brother. It's been a long day today at work and I don't think the miserable weather helped but there we go. Much happier now as its my day off tomorrow and I'm catching up with my friend to have a browse in town and a spot of lunch. Despite finishing up my Christmas shopping I've yet to attempt to wrap the presents, I usually make the mistake of leaving that job until last minute, but not this year! 

Well I best go and start wrapping... I'm going to put on a Christmassy film whilst doing so.

Happy Monday,

BLOGMAS Day 15 - Candles, Candles & more Candles



I seriously cannot get enough of candles. It's a problem. Candles are made for Autumn and Winter time, right? All of these divine scents are on my candle wishlist.

This Diptyque 5 Candle Gift Set includes a selection of their most popular scents in celebration of their 50th anniversary. Then we have a more affordable candle, this Yankee Candle in Snowflake Cookie is  a lovely sweet, vanilla scent. How have I not got my hands on this Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Candle yet?! It's definitely at the top of my wishlist. Then we have this Neom Christmas Wish Candle, made for the Make A Wish Foundation for every candle sold they donate £1 and its full of warm spices and soothing fruit notes. Lastly is the Laura Mercier Luxe Signature Candle, a warm roasted chestnut scent its perfect for the festive time of year.


Have you got any of these candles? What's you favourite scent for this time of year?

BLOGMAS Day 12 - Winter Wonderland


 On Tuesday me and Mich (my mum) decided to head up to London to do some Christmas shopping and to visit Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park. I had such a lovely day and enjoyed wandering around all of the Christmas stalls and rides. If you want to see everything we got up to then I will be uploading a vlog video of my day shortly on my youtube channel. I've pretty much finished my Christmas shopping too, at last! I just need to pick up some little stocking fillers and buy gift wrap, eek.
