Product of the Month...December

Hello My Lovelies

Wow can you believe it's the end of the year already? Where has 2014 gone?! I'm finishing the year with a product I bought earlier in the year and has become my weekend/special occasion item!

My product for the month of December is...Anastasia Brow Wiz in the colour Ash Blonde.


The pencil is light and fine and blends beautifully, I can't stand waxy pencils luckily this isn't- with such light eyebrows I have to be super careful with the colour I use on my brows but this is just the right colour.
I'm not to keen on the eyebrow brush, but then I never tend to use them anyway. For the price at £15.50 I tend to only use this on the weekends/nights out and in the week I use the Rimmel eyebrow pencil in Hazel which is also a good match for my eyebrows but is a little scratchy to apply and not quite as good as the Brow Wiz.
I would definitely recommend this product if you're wanting/needing to try a new eyebrow pencil, I'm going to repurchase the pencil when I finish it and I'm always on the look out for companies that sell it especially if they a discount day.
Have you tried any of the Anastasia products?
Till next time,

What's in my holiday carry on?

Hello My Lovelies

I'm soon to be going on holiday to Iceland and whilst I was packing my carry on I decided that you all might like to see what's inside of it. I love these kinds of posts as it gives me idea's for when I go away and plus I'm just a bit nosy!

The Bag!

I chose a Mountain Warehouse rucksack, as I'll be going on lots of excursions and in the snow I picked a ruck sack, I haven't one since school (which was a longgg time ago) so it will be nice to have one again and add to the sense of adventure.

Makeup bag...

This literally has the essentials in it, I hate having to get every thing out and putting it into the clear bags- so I have my most prized beauty procession Vaseline, Hourglass powder (I don't want it to smash), Anastasia Brow Wiz and Nars creamy concealer


For getting some great shots of the ice and snow!


I'm so excited for this trip its been booked for months and has been a place I've wanted to visit for years! Look out for a blog post all about my adventures in the near future.

Till next time,

London at Christmas!

Hello My Lovelies

This past weekend I went and met my old Uni friends in London. We try to meet up a few times a year and we always meet in London at Christmas as its so festive and gets us all in the Christmassy mood!

I met them both just around the corner from Sloane Square underground station near to the Saatchi Gallery- where I people watched and had my fingers crossed that I might see some of the cast from Made in Chelsea or Tanya Burr and Jim Chapman, but it was not to be on this occasion!
I've been wanting to go to the Saatchi Gallery for such a long time and haven't visited since the gallery was along the Southbank.

The gallery was fab and I got to see some really interesting pieces of modern art, though I was a bit disappointed I didn't get to see the big spider installation!

We then decided it was time for some lunch and we took a walk along to a great pub in Sloane Square called the Antelope.

With full bellies and Christmas presents exchanged it was time for some shopping! I went to London with just one thing on my shopping list....A By Terry Ombre Blackstar and so I had to pop into Space NK to have a look! How ever I wasn't so sure about the By Terry product as it looked a bit too sparkly for me and I couldn't decide on the colour, so I picked up Nars creamy concealer which my friend reminded me had been on one of my blog wish lists for a while now!

I wasn't feeling to great (dreaded cold) so I said my good byes and before long I was on the train travelling back to the island. What a lovely meet up we had- I can't wait for more in 2015!

Have you been to London this festive season? Let me know!!

Empties Number 5!

Hello My Lovelies!

Here are all of the good and not so good empties for the past month or so!
First up Simple Kind to Skin Protecting moisturiser, a lovely light non greasy factor 30 moisturiser-so good for the price and one that I have already repurchased!

Soap & glory Orangeasm, this products is definitely a love it or hate it one. I'm in the hate it category. I thought it was going to be similar to the sugar crush but it's far from. I won't be buying this again, and I'm a little disappointed that it's in the big Christmas box that Boots sell.

And...finally the last two products Pantene aqua light shampoo, I love to use this shampoo once or twice a week just to clear my hair of products and one that I have been repurchasing for a year or so now. I love most of the Impulse body sprays and always have a quick spray on my way too work, they are really affordable and fab to take in your bag for a freshen up in the day.

Have you tried any of these products, what did you think of them- let me know in the comments!

Christmas/Winter Haul!

Hello My Lovelies

I recently uploaded a beauty haul and decided to keep these non beauty bits & bobs for this blog post- it's very Christmassy/Wintery and I hope will help you all get in the mood or give you some inspiration for gifts for you or maybe even yourself!

First up these reindeer F&F (Tesco) pj bottoms, they are super soft and comfy and I love the cute little reindeer and his red lips. They cost £8!

Next up I couldn't resist this cute bath mat from Marks & Spencer, I had a 20% off voucher which made it even easier to buy. I can't wait for December 1st when this will go into my bathroom...It cost £14.00

One of my favourite things ever to buy in Primark are the cosy socks, these are great for keeping my toes warm at night. When I saw these Santa ones I knew I had to have them. £2.00 each!

Whilst in Primark I also picked up these Christmas tree baubles in a candy cane pattern and they will look fab hanging from our tree, these cost £2.00
Finally I popped into Morrisons the other day and saw these super cute Father Christmas straws which I can't wait to pop in a glass of coke or even in an alocholic beverage or two! These cost £2.00 each too!!

Have you bought any Christmas themed items, let me know in the comments!

Origins Face Mask Review

Hello My Lovelies!

A few weeks ago Boots were having a Christmas promotion on the Origins face mask set at £23 for three different ones. Having never tried any of the products but always wanting too, I knew I had to take advantage of the great deal and before I knew it I was back at home trying the first one 'Out of Trouble' 10 minute mask.

The consistency of the mask is super thick, I was actually quite shocked. White in colour it was easily applied, but then I began to smell the scent and I was not impressed. It smells very medicinal and not pleasant at all!

I kept it on for a few minutes, it should of been longer really but I couldn't bare yet smell so I had to remove it. After my skin felt smooth but I didn't see any major improvements or differences.

To say I was a little disappointed with my first product from Origins would probably be an understatement- how ever I am still excited to try the clay mask which a review will be coming up on my blog of very soon.

Have you tried this face mask before? What do you think of the smell? Let me know!

Christmas Wishlist!

Hello My Lovelies

With Christmas fast approaching I thought I'd let you all see my wish list! All of these products are ones I've had my eye on for a while- so lets hope Santa is reading this!

christmas wishlist

Nars Creamy Concealer- I've read so many great reviews about this product over the years and I've never had the chance to buy it but I would love to see it my stocking this year.

Jo Malone Candle- I recently went to a Jo Malone store to smell all the candles and the one that particularly stood out was the Sage and Sea Salt. I would love love love one of the candles as the perfumes are just a little too strong for me.

MAC 217 brush- I think I might buy this as a Christmas present for myself when I go on holiday just before Christmas and pick one up in Duty Free.

The last two items are so pretty that I can't imagine anybody not wanting these under their tree this season. The Charlotte Tilbury Golden Goddess eyeshadow palette and the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette. I already own a lip liner from Charlotte Tilbury and a powder and blush from Hourglass and I absolutely adore everything from both so would like to add more to my collection.

Have you got a wishlist, make sure you share them with me in the comments!
