Lush Mini Product Reviews! (Blogmas, Day 16 )

Hi my lovelies,

For today’s post, I’m reviewing my new purchases from Lush! I’m a huge fan of Lush, and I picked up a good few things the last time I was there, a lot of which I haven’t used before. It’s not really Christmassy, but some of this is from their Christmas collection, so I thought I’d slip this in there for something a bit different! If you saw my Manchester Haul, you’ll know what I bought, but here I’m being a little more in depth!

The Lust List – December 2016! (Blogmas, Day 10)

Hi my lovelies,

I’m back with a Christmas edition of my Lust List this December! Let’s see what I’ve been lusting over this festive period, shall we? Christmas is a time for indulgence, so I have to admit some of these are definite luxury items that I wouldn’t be able to splurge on, but a girl can definitely dream!

  • Tom Ford Lips and Boys Complete Collection

Tom Ford Lips & Boys 2016 Swatches

When you think of luxury cosmetics, who doesn’t think of Tom Ford? This huge set of all 50 Lips and Boys lippies is the most luxurious makeup gift that I’ve probably ever seen and retails for a whopping £1500! (Which is over a month’s pay for me, wow!) Regardless, it’s super high quality and so lustworthy.

Hi my lovelies,

Welcome back to Blogmas! If you’re anything like me, the festive season is your fave and you love blasting out all of those Christmas songs non stop, 24/7 over the entirety of December. (It’s what it’s for, is it not?)


Today’s post is a countdown of my favourite Christmas songs to listen and sing along to (and make everyone else I know sick of) over the festive period! It was really hard to whittle it down to just 10 as I love so many Christmas themed songs! I’m counting down from 10-1 with my favourite at the end, so stay tuned!

How I spent my Birthday + Manchester Haul! (Blogmas, Day 7)

Hi my lovelies!

I’m back with another blogmas post! I’m getting pretty good at this blogging every day malarky, even though it’s taken lots and lots of prep and post writing, brainstorming etc. Today’s post is all about how I spent my birthday last week, and what I bought while I was in Manchester!

Okay, so every birthday for the past four or five years, I’ve taken the day off and gone to the christmas markets in Manchester, just me and my mum. It’s a tradition now! This year was no different and off we went bright and early to catch our train. It’s about 45 minutes into Manchester from where we live, but it’s worth the trip to do some serious shopping and have that ever so lovely mulled wine (or amaretto hot chocolate, yum!) before having some food!



We always hit all the stalls, and manage to get lost every time trying to find our way to the town hall and Spinningfields and we stuck to the tradition this time but with a twist as we found our way there quite easily, but then couldn’t find our way back! Our time was mostly spent browsing the stalls and trying to keep warm – we didn’t get much from the markets, but my mum bought a beautiful silver ring at the Affleck’s pop up in the town hall (and I would have bought a dress if they had it in my size)

Birchbox December 2016 – Sneak Peek! (Blogmas, day 2!)

Hi my lovelies,

Welcome back to my second day of Blogmas! I’m super excited to be sharing all of these posts with you, and for day 2 I’m sharing my monthly Birchbox preview post! Not the most Christmassy post, I know – but I do a preview post every month, so I’m not about to not write one for December!

Check out all my Blogmas Posts so far Here!


I’ve been getting Birchbox since last December, and at least for now this will be my last box (I’ll go into more detail in my unboxing post) – so I’m super happy to say it looks like a really great one this month!

IMG_00176009 2

December’s theme is Merry & Bright and is all about ending the year in style and feeling super festive!! I love the Christmas theme and as an extra treat, everyone is getting at least two makeup products in their box this month – seriously exciting! The box this month is a completely different format than usual and looks kiiiinda like a cigarette box to me – anyone else? Regardless, it’s pretty, and can be used to store makeup brushes, pens, pencil style makeup products, chopsticks or anything you like after it’s done with which I think is pretty cool.


For those of you who don’t know about Birchbox, it’s a beauty subscription service that sends around 5 beauty products (including makeup, skincare and haircare) to your door each month. Sometimes there is also a beauty bonus included, such as January’s #nofilter compact mirror! It costs £10 plus £2.95 postage, and in my opinion is well worth it so far as I’ve found products that I really love (Spectrum makeup brushes, anybody?)!

Birchbox also now ships to Ireland, so all you Irish lovelies can now get your hands on this little box of wonders too!
