Fashion | Xmas Party Dress Picks

It's christmas time and you know what that means, christmas party time! I have selected 5 different styles of dresses to give you ideas of what to wear this time of year.

1. I have selected this beautiful red lace dress from Topshop. Its a body-con style dress, ideal for any christmas party, and a beautiful festive colour. Click here for the link.

2. Another lace dress this time in black, a classic little black dress from Topshop also. If you want a classic this dress is perfect and would go with many different accessories. I think it could also be worn at other times of the year as well as christmas. Click here for the link.

3. Now this one will dazzle everyone! If you are daring why not go for a sparkling sequin dress from H&M. I particularly love the colour of this dress as it isn't a typical christmas shade. A very special dress for a very special time of the year. Click here for the link.

4. This dress is also from H&M another lace number this time with a floaty skirt and long sleeves. If your not keen on wearing the body-con style dress this style would work for you. This is my favourite style of dress and I love the shade of green. Click here for the link.

5. Lastly a gold embellished dress from New Look. This is another glitzy dress, a little bit more subtle than the sequin number. This is a beautiful dress and would be perfect for a christmas do. Click here for the link.

And thats all the dresses I picked, obviously there are so many more styles but I hope this gives you some ideas for the Christmas and New Year party season!

Merry Christmas everybody, thank you for always taking the time to read my blog posts! I am going to have short break from blog posting until the 2016, stay tuned to my facebook page or on my instagram page for my next blog post!

Make Up | Rouge Edition Velvet Nud-ist, Bourjois

I bought a red lipstick from this collection and I love it so much I wanted to purchase an everyday shade. I went for the shade Nud-ist. It is a pink-nude which I find suits me very well.

This lipstick is so long lasting and I love having a matte alternative to wear. It goes with a lot of make up looks which I like to wear. I would say you need to make sure to keep your lips moisturised when wearing matte lipsticks, as this lipstick on dry lips will only draw attention to that.

I think this lipstick is very versatile and it can be worn during the day and night. Its a gorgeous shade and I would highly recommend giving this lipstick ago. There are so many shades to choose from as well as the two I have posted about.

Thanks for reading as always!

Make Up | Beauty Haul

I bought a few new items recently, and thought I would share with you what I got!

First of all, I wanted a christmas nail polish shade, I bought this glittery Barry M Nail Polish in the shade Ruby Slippers. I think this is an amazing shade, I was thinking I could paint one nail this colour and the rest in a matte shade. Or just paint all my nails totally glittery! I am very excited to try out a few ideas with this polish.

Secondly, I purchased another Bourjois Velvet Edition lipstick in the shade, Nud-ist. I love the red shade I have so much I wanted to purchased an everyday shade to wear. Stay tuned for a full review of this product in a blog post coming soon!

Lastly, I bought a Define & Conquer Contour Kit by Seventeen. I wanted a matte bronze shade to create definition for the winter months. This kit is perfect especially for on the go. One side is the matte bronze shade and the other side is a setting powder. I got this in the shade Fair, as I have pale skin. I would recommend this product.

And that was everything I bought, I am very excited to get started with these products!

Thanks for reading!

Fashion | Christmas Gift Guide

For today's post I thought I would talk about possible christmas gifts. I wanted to talk about three different options both for him or her.

1. The first great present you could purchase for someone is one of the many gift sets at The Body Shop. The one I have selected is the Fuji Green Tea set, this is an amazing scent that most women would love. This is perfect if you are buying for someone who you are not too sure what they would like, who wouldn't love a beautiful toiletry set from The Body Shop. In the set you get a shower gel, body butter, body scrub and a mini shower lily. Click here for a link to this product.

2. The second item from the same genre of gifts is a mens gift set from The Body Shop. This one is called Modern Gents's Pool Party Rescue Kit. It comes with an energising face wash and a face serum. This is a perfect gift for a young guy. Click here for the link.

3. Then I want to talk about fragrance, for her I would recommend Giorgio Armani Si. This is my favourite fragrance, it smells of vanilla mix with floral. I think many women would love this fragrance. Click here for the link.

4. A fragrance for men I would recommend getting a guy the new James Bond, Seven aftershave. I just think any guy would love to think they smell just like James Bond, I know my boyfriend would! Click here for the link.

5. And finally I have chosen two christmas jumper options to buy for him or her. The jumper for her is from Next with a cute christmas owl! I personally love anything with a cute animal on it in particularly an owl and I'm sure I'm not the only one! Click here for a link.

6. The christmas jumper for him is also from Next, a snowman snowboarding. The scarf and bobble on his hat is 3D which I think looks so cool. I think any guy would like this sporty/silly christmas jumper. Click here for a link.

And that's my christmas gift guide, there are many other things you could buy as presents but I thought I would narrow it down into three genres! I hope I have given you some ideas.

Nails | Estee Lalonde Nail Art Kit, The Body Shop

I recently purchased this amazing Nail Art Kit by Estee Lalonde who collaborated with The Body Shop.

This is a gorgeous nail set with three lovely colours and a dotting pen to create your own nail art designs. This would make the perfect christmas gift for someone who loves painting their nails.

The kit comes with two different nail art ideas and steps to follow to create the designs. You can see my first attempt at one of them, now I know its not amazing but I plan to develop my nail art skills! I found it very easy to create the dots with the unique dotting tool. The tool has two ends, one end is large circular tip and the other is very small circular tip. This tool is extremely easy to create the dots. I have not tried any other designs yet but as the christmas season is here I may try out a snow flake design or two see how that goes! I think its an amazing tool as you can use this with all other nail polishes as well as the ones which come with the set.

I particularly love the pink and blue shades of the polishes. They are The Body Shop Colour Crush nail polishes. I have had the polish on for about a day and half now and it has hardly chipped. I did add a layer of top coat to protect my design. I would recommend the nail polish.

All in all this is an amazing set and would recommend getting it as a gift for someone for christmas. Click here for a link to the product.

Thank you for reading!

Beauty | The Bodyshop Haul November 2015

I went on another The Body Shop shopping spree recently, as you know I love The Body Shop and I frequently purchase their moisturisers and shower gels. 
I only purchased two items on this spending spree, two of my favourite scents from The Body Shop, Smoky Poppy and Honeymania.

First thing I picked up was another Smoky Poppy Body Lotion as it was in the sale at the time and I love the scent. I am about to finish up a bottle of this and this is the first time I have repurchased the same scent from The Body Shop, which shows how much I love it.

The second product I bought was another Body Butter, I bought the fragrance Honeymania, as I love the Honeymania Bubble Bath Melt. As I already know and love the scent I thought I would give the body butter a try. I only use body butters after a hot bath for an extra dose of moisture. I am looking forward to starting on this scent!

And thats everything, what is your favourite scent from The Body Shop?
