December Favourites

So i hope everyone one of you had a Christmas full of delightful smelling candles and all the mash potato you could dream for.

I feel like i haven't done a favourites in forever since my missed last months (my bad)
So i have gathered up a few things I've been loving over the past two months.

Mac Fix+: This has been part of a favourite combo of pretty much drowning a brush in this to apply my kiko shadow. It just makes the colour so much more vibrate and i love it i love it.

Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara: I got this during my little haul and oh my god how did i live without this, i have very few bottom lashes that may as well be non existent and this is my life saver and i don't think ill ever be starved of this product again.

Body Shop Glazed Apple Hand Cream: Im not one for apples, i pretty much hate them but when i smelt this i fell in love i was tempted to buy the whole apple collection. Whenever i whack this bad boy out everyone comments on the wonderful smell, seriously guys go smell it.

Nivea Caramel Cream Lip Butter: I recently rediscovered this in the bottom of a draw and now i know why i brought it the smell is insane as well as moisturising the lip and only being a couple of pound, bye vaseline.

Mac Cyber Lipstick: I've started to dabble in the lip colour and I've always been jealous of girls with a intense dark purple lip and spent most my life in the drugstore trying to find one that fulfils my needs. Its quite a draggy lipstick even though its satin finish, but a major tip here, lipliner or a lip brush, its not going to work otherwise.

Kiko 200 Wet & Dry Eye Shadow: I'd be lying if i said this hasn't been a favourite since October but always slipped my mind, this is my daily shadow, its a gorgeous goldy champagne and girl this combo mixed with Fix+ damn.

Benefit Rockateur: I was sold when it was decided as rose gold like every girl on the internet theres just something about rose gold that just makes you a bit hot under the collar. Its a gorgeous shade and i think it will be perfect for New Year Eve, the swatch doesn't do it benefit (ha, i'll be here all night)

Peppermint Hot Chocolate: This has been my go to bev, as if hot chocolate doesn't scream Christmas enough put a candy cane in there and your set, santa is on his way.

That was this months favourites, it was quite small but i have a feeling that January is going to be a good month with lots of new favourites.

Whats been your favourite this month?

Movie Night

If your anything like me, movie night is every night.
I must watch a film or a couple of programmes every night.

But I'm going all out on this movie night, I'm talking peppermint hot chocolate, lots of freshly washed fluffy blankets and of course a fuzzy animal of your choice.
I think its a perfect time since lets be honest who hasn't skinted themselves out due to Christmas? I know i have

5 films in one night, yeah ok pretty extreme but go hard or go home.
This usually starts in the early evening so brace yourselves.

Todays selection being:

Girl Interrupted: Im always down for a film that is quite dark, something that draws me in and i can't look away, especially when the beautiful Angelina Jolie is in it. Its quite a heavy starter film, but i couldn't wait to watch it.

Mean Girls: What is a movie night without a chick flick and Mean Girls is perfect for it, I'm yet to find a human being who doesn't love this film

22 Jump Street: I honestly forgot how funny this film was, it gave me cramps (my name is Jeff) I'm now just waiting for 38 jump street which is dance school, Channing in tights? Please.

The Grinch: Its less than a week to Christmas how couldn't i mention a Christmas film, i haven't watched the Grinch in years the last time i did it was on video, yes video. Forgot how funny it is and tragically how much i relate to the Grinch himself

The Breakfast Club: My all time favourite film, I'm not sure what it is about this film it could be the jazzy song on the credits or just how bad Bender is, if you haven't seen this film i would check it out, its not everyones cup of tea but it is a interesting film to watch.

This night should be broken up with a super yummy pepper mint hot chocolate, a takeaway i suggest pizza and if you want to go all out some home baking or popcorn.

You can do this with a friend or yourself.
Its just perfect to relax yourself before busyness of Christmas

What are your favourite films?

Christmas Guide 2014

I don't know about you, but i love me a good old Christmas guide but always end up wishing everyone i know watched them because i want all the things mentioned.

My first Christmasy post, yay.

Christmas Guides are always my life saver and i thought id just put together a few bits for ideas and inspiration. 

Salted Caramel Yankee Candle (Medium) £16.49: I love candles but i don't always love spending a lot on a candle so they are great to get as a gift, my favourite being the salted caramel but pick whatever scents they like.

Nars Virtual Domination Cheek Palette £45: Bet you haven't seen this mentioned before, this is the perfect gift for a makeup addict, and i'm pretty sure they wouldn't buy this themselves when they are popping up in every gift guide

Aromatherapy Star £10: This is a perfect small gift to buy, as they can hang it up on the tree and comes with the most beautiful oil

Topshop Teddy Robe £32: Ok a bit pricy for a robe, but seriously if you've felt it, you'll understand why its in here! Its ridiculously soft and don't think people would usually think of this to buy for themselves

Lush Snow Fairy £22.50: Of course I'm going to mention something Lush and as i was scrolling online i saw this and knew it was the one, snow fairy is the best sweetest scent and i'd be over the moon if i got this and it also looks beautiful so you don't even need to wrap it.

Urban Decay Naked Basics 2 £22: I was going to go with the Naked palette but i thought, this is the newest naked palette so not as many people will have this yet, and its a beautiful cool toned palette.

Essie Baby Its Cold Outside Quad £25: I wanted something for the nail lovers and i saw this little quad and thought the shades was really beautiful and i really liked the name of the quad, its so christmasy and cute aw.

Laura Mercier Creme Brulee Honey Bath £32: I would die if i unwrapped it, its such a luxury bath product that i would never buy for myself and if they are a bath lover, you are gonna get one massive cuddle.

Festive Coffee Syrups £8: These are the costa festive syrups you can buy them on ebay or pop into your store, perfect for coffee addicts like myself, and would make a nice secret santa or stocking filler and this year they have a brownie syrup (yum)

Instagram Magnets £12.50: This is a lovely idea for a gift, if its for a really close friend and i also think it would be great for a boy or a girl as long as they have 22 photos, i ordered these for my sister and its so personal and thoughtful and I'm sure anyone will love this, unless you print all their ugly selfies.

I always think that presents should be something the person your giving to wouldn't buy themselves, like a luxury product or something really thoughtful.

Hope this helped you if you're stuck on presents.

Any more good gift ideas?

Go-to Christmas Lip

I'm all for a Autumn berry lip
Its just something about December where its a struggle not to wear it everyday, because whenever i do, i'm just a walking bundle of Christmas.
Get me?

I'm fairly new to the lip world, it never really was my thing, as i never thought i could pull it off even when a few years back if you lips wasn't red you couldn't sit with us.
But I'm slowly starting to build my lip collection
But for today
Who would i be if i said it wasn't the cult classic
Rimmel Kate 107

This was actually the first lipstick i owned, when i was around 14 and i was pretty blown away with the watermelon scent, although i never was brave enough to wear it, i still liked to put it on in my bedroom and smell my lips. 
I don't remember it being this lovely deep berry shade, so when i put it on again this year i was shocked.

I remember this being really drying on my lips, but since i rebrought it as i lost my original, its actually quite creamy.
Also i don't remember it being this long lasting?!
Im sorry i ever doubted you little lipstick.

With any bold lip on a day look, i always keep eyes minimal so with just a ivory shade all over and then a wing.
I love this look, its so simple but bold.
Although i need to find a nice berry liner because i just think it completes the look and keeps it tidy
So if you have any suggestions you know what to do!

What are your Christmas lips?
