Merry Christmas My Lovelies!

Hi my lovelies,

I just want to say a very Merry Christmas to everyone (or happy holidays if you don’t celebrate), especially everyone who’s been following my blog for a while.

This year of blogging has been an absolute blast, and I celebrated my one year blogaversary on the 23rd December – it’s been such a ride, I’ve discovered lots of must have, holy grail products this year, and some massive duds too! Most of all, I hope I’ve made a few good friends from blogging too – and I hope to make more and make 2017 an amazing year!

I hope you’re all having a lovely time this Christmas, and wish everyone the best time! I’ll see you all in a couple of days!

Love you all, and thank you (even the new followers) for sticking with me! Let’s make 2017 the best ever!

Jess xoxo

Winter skincare update – Evening Routine! (Blogmas, Day 22)

Hi my lovelies,

If you saw my morning skincare update a few days back, you’ll be expecting this post! I’m sharing the ways that I’m switching up my skincare for winter as the weather gets harsher and colder during winter! One thing I’m a real stickler about is my night time routine, and I make sure that I take my makeup off and clean away all the dirt of the day off before I go to bed every night! Here’s my night time routine for winter!

If you haven’t seen my morning skincare update, you can find that one here!


My night time routine:


No matter how tired I am or how late it is, I always make sure to take my makeup off, so that’s the first step. If I’m wearing eye makeup, I always use Clinique’s Take the day off for Lids, Lashes and Lips to remove that first as it’s the only thing that really gets rid of everything without pulling a load of my eyelashes with it! It’s definitely the best eye makeup remover I’ve tried.

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!

Birchbox December 2016 Unboxing – My Last Box & Why I’m Cancelling! (Blogmas, day 14)

Hi My lovelies,

Today’s post is all about my final Birchbox of the year, and my last box for the time being! I’m cancelling after December’s box,  think new year, new start kind of thing. After getting Birchbox for a full year, I’ve come to the realisation that I’m never 100% impressed with the box, or there’s some sort of mistake or error, or there are products in there which are completely unsuitable for me. So I’m starting off January without my Birchbox subscription! Regardless, December’s box is actually pretty good and almost made me reconsider my decision to quit for now (apart from a problem I’ll address below), so let’s see what was inside!



This month is Christmas themed, and Birchbox always bring out the best at this time of year which is why I’ve stuck it out for this box. The box is a strange design this month, pretty plain but opens up like a storage box, which could be handy to keep pens or makeup brushes in (although I like the drawer style boxes better!)

So what was in my box this month?

My Top 10 Christmas Movies! – Blogmas, day 13!)

Hi my lovelies,

Welcome back to Blogmas! We’re over half way through now – can you believe it’s less than two weeks until Christmas?


I figured I’d go for something a bit more festive for today’s post, so I’m going to count down my favourite Christmas movies for you! I’ve loved watching Christmas films ever since I was little, and these are some of my absolute favourites! I’ll count down from 10 to 1, with my very favourite at the end!

On with the countdown!

10: Jingle All The Way

This movie is somewhat of a guilty pleasure for me. Whether it’s Arnie’s slightly wooden yet extremely comical acting, the scene with the parcel bomb, or the creepy guy that no one likes getting whacked with a thermos at the end, I love to watch this movie. It follows Arnold Schwarzenegger (right spelling first time, wow!) trying to get a sold out toy for his son the day before Christmas – it’s funny, memorable, and one that I watch without fail every year!

9:The Santa Clause

A childhood favourite of mine – I have all of the Santa Clause movies on DVD and the box set comes out around this time every year for me to watch! Everyone’s seen Tim (The Tool Man Taylor!) Allen in his hilarious transformation into Santa by now, and it’s loads of family fun! Pretty much as cheesy as it gets but something I still enjoy watching.

8: The Nightmare Before Christmas

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.
