My Top Festive Films To Get You Ready For Christmas



Hullo!

It's still November but I'm already watching Christmas Movies. I have so many I love so I'm going to talk about a few that will definitely put you in the mood for Christmas if you're feeling rather Scrooge-ish! 

First up is Home Alone.

A classic that never fails to please. My brother and I can literally quote it word for word when we watch it now because we've seen it so many times! 



Next is ELF :-)

You can't go wrong with a Will Farrell movie! 


I adore this film, it's centered around "Buddy The Elf" a human adopted by elves, who decides to find his biological father who to his horror happens to be on the Naughty List!!!



The Grinch 

I could literally watch this movie all year round and not care if my family thought I was insane! Jim Carrey is amazing in this film. If you haven't seen it yet then make sure you do this Christmas!


I also suggest reading the book, young and old are able to appreciate the genius that is Dr Seuss :-) 


The Muppets Christmas Carol



Another film that's part of my families Christmas traditions! 

My brother and I make sure to sit down and watch this one at least once in the month of December...shhhh...don't tell him but I may have already watched it once or twice already this year!

So those are my top Christmas movie picks that are definitely going to get you ready for the big day 
:-) 

What's your favourite Christmas Movie?

Christmas Wishlist 2014

Hullo Ladies!

That time of year again is fast approaching and these last few weeks I've been thinking about what I want for Christmas :-)



Topshop Lip & Cheek Set

I've been dying to try the Topshop Makeup Range but I've never had the chance, I went onto the website the other day having a little browse and noticed that they had brought out these cute little Lip & Cheek sets that I think would be perfect for someone like me who hasnt tried anything from the range yet :-) 

Soap & Glory Gloss Crayons Gift Set

I wanted to pick up last years version of this set but never managed it! I later bought Nudest on a three for two offer and fell in love so I'm hoping to finally get the set this year!  

Starbucks Festive Mug

I love a good Christmas Mug to drink my Hot Chocolate in and I adore this Starbucks Design! 

Soap & Glory Kohl Set

Soap and Glory have upped their game this year with the makeup sets and I'm dying to try out their eyeliners so this gift set would be a perfect way to do just that!

LUSH Christmas Bathtime Favourites Set

You may not know this but lately I've become obsessed with LUSH and this Gift Set looks so blinking amazing!!! I'm dying to have it!


Snowman Jumper

You have to have a good Christmas Jumper this time of year and this one from ASDA is so cute! 

Benefit Cheeky Sweet Spot Box-O-Blushes Set

I think I'll cry if I don't get this amazing set this year. I've always wanted to try the Benefit Blushes but I just find them way too expensive! This set contains a whole bunch of them for a great price! I'm determined that it will be mine :-)  

Marc Jacobs Daisy Gift Set

Every year I ask for a perfume set and this year I'm dying to try the original Daisy EDT :-) 

 Yankee Candle

Every time I walk into a shop that sells Yankee Candles I spend a good 30 minutes smelling them all but always walk away because of the price tag! This year I'm putting one on my wishlist ;-)

So those are the goodies that I'm wishing for this Christmas!
What have you got your eye on?

REVIEW - LUSH - Cinders Bath Bomb

Hullo Ladies!

Continuing with my LUSH reviews I'm going to talk about Cinders, which was in fact my first LUSH Purchase about two years ago. 

Cinders is a spicy scented bath bomb which has popping candy inside it.


It's a smaller bath bomb but packs a punch scent wise. I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to smell the gorgeous spiciness once the bomb had gone into the bath but I could smell it for hours afterwards which is great :-) 

This bath bomb is from the Christmas Collection and will cost you £2.50 



The only thing that may put a downer on your bath is that it obviously turns your water a yellow colour!

I can look over that small fact though and highly recommend this gorgeous ball of goodness. 

I recently became fascinated in creating bath cocktails and I think that some gorgeous Hot Toddy Shower Gel and some Yog Nog soap would go stunningly with this bath bomb! 


Have you tried this one?

What do you think of it?

REVIEW - LUSH - Shoot For The Stars Bath Bomb

Hullo Ladies!

So recently I became fascinated with LUSH and made a few orders :-) 

Due to that I forsee a great many LUSH reviews in my future, here's the first one!

This is the Shoot For The Stars Bath Bomb which is from the Christmas Collection.


The first thing I noticed about this bath bomb was the smell. Its a sweet citrus scent that's addictive. 

Talking to some people on Instagram who love LUSH, this bomb apparently shares it's scent with the Honey I Washed The Kids Soap but I've never tried that product so I don't know for certain. 


As you can see in the pictures this bath bomb gives a spectacular show, it's so pretty and has so much silver glitter! 

It look's like some type of artwork in your bath :-)  



The smell lingered for a long time which I loved and my skin felt gorgeous when I got out. 

I did find that some of the silver glitter stayed around the edges of my bath but they were easily washed away. 

I can't recommend this bath bomb enough! 

Have you tried it?

What your favourite LUSH product?

HUGE LUSH Halloween + Christmas Haul

 Hullo Ladies!

I've made three LUSH Orders this past month since they released their Halloween and Christmas Collections, this time of the year is the only time I really buy from lush so I like to stock up when I can :-) 



My First Order consisted of ;

500ml Bottle Of Snow Fairy (Christmas) Iconic scent for Lush Fans and one of the first product's I ever bought from the brand.

Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar  (Halloween) A gorgeous orange pumpkin with gold luster. Smells very fruity. Not what I expected but nice none the less.

Magic Wand Bubble Bar (Christmas) One of the few products I've tried in the past, smells just like Snow Fairy!

Shoot For The Stars Bath Bomb (Christmas) I've used this already and have to say it gives a beautful show in the bath, I really grew to love the scent too which Ive been told smells like Honey I washed The Kids but I couldn't tell you for sure yet because I've not tried that particular product :-) 

Father Christmas Bath Bomb (Christmas) Smells like Snow Fairy and I can't wait to try it! 


My Second Order consisted of more Seasonal releases but also one permanent product.

Wizard Bubble Bar - Very cute, I've already used it so I'll be reviewing soon!

Phoenix Rising Bath Bomb - This is part of the permanent range but to me smells great at this time of year! Smells like cinnamon so definitely one to try if you're fan of warm spicy scents.  

Cinders Bath Bomb - This is the only other thing I've ever bought from LUSH in the past and it's amazing. Again it's very warm and spicy and it has popping candy! 

Candy Mountain Bubble Bar - Smells like Snow Fairy and for some reason reminds me of The Grinch. I'm in love with it!

So White Bath Bomb - I ordered this because I'd heard so much about it from bloggers, It smells like the skin of an apple to me, a very realistic soft scent. I can't wait to use it and see what the hype is all about :-) 

Golden Wonder Bath Bomb - Another much loved product that is supposed to be amazing when you put it in the bath. It makes a noise when you shake it so that's exciting!

Northern Lights Bath Bomb - This came broken so I emailed the customer care line and they've told me they are sending a replacement. I wouldn't usually complain about such a thing but I've heard and seen on Instagram how amazing this is! Can't wait to try it! 

Reindeer Rock Soap - I was dying to try a soap from the brand so I chose this one, it's smells very fruity and I love it :-)

Santa's Lip Scrub - For years I've heard amazing things about these Lip Scrubs so I decided to splurge and pick up the Santa's one. I have a lot to say about this one so I'll be reviewing soon!



So in the third and fianl order I chose:

Luxury Lush Pud - I decided to buy this one after seeing a video clip on Instagram it looked amazing! Can't wait to try it in the bath. 

Snow Fairy Shower Gel - I bought another 500ml bottle, I know, I'm naughty but it so darn good!

Yog Nog Soap - Oh My God, this soap smells so yummy. I really want to get more but I'm going to force myself to wait awhile! Three orders in one month is plenty!

The Christmas Penguin Bubble Bar - I've heard so much about this little guy that I had to try him out. He smell very fresh and I can't wait to see how my bubble bath turns out tonight :-) 

The Comforter - This is in the permanent line but I've  been meaning to try it for ages as it's talked about a lot! After hearing that it also shared it's scent with the Reindeer Rock soap I knew I had to get it! So glad I did. The smell reminds me of my childhood for some reason! 


So that's my HUGE Lush haul!

Have you ordered anything from the seasonal range yet?

REVIEW - The Body Shop - Special Edition Blueberry Range

Hullo Ladies!

So a few months back I took advantage of a The Body Shop's sale, I picked up some of the Blueberry Range.

Even though the range isn't there right now, I thought I'd review it as a lot of the time they bring back certain lines at certain times of the year.  


I ended up picking up the Shower Gel, Body Scrub and Lip Butter.

The scent is pretty much what you would expect. It does smell like blueberries.

It's fruity and light :-) 




I loved the shower gel as it created some lovely bubbles in the bath! They lasted a long time too. One of the thing's I love about The Body Shop Shower Gels :-) 

The Body Scrub looks and smells a lot like blueberry jam! It's a good middle between the cream and the sugar scrubs The Body Shop sell. The only problem I have is that it contains a lot of exfoliating bits that can be quite messy in a bath tub so I use this while in the shower. 

The Lip Butter is gorgeous and I keep it in my handbag along with the strawberry one!

It's very moisturizing and smells lovely. 


I highly recommend the range and hope that they re-release it next spring :-)  


Did you try the line? 

What did you think?

Birthday Haul - Perfume, The Body Shop + MAC


 Hullo Ladies!

The month of September was a busy month for me! It was my birthday month :-)

I received lots and lots of lovely goodies!




From my parents I was given this super cute birthday cake! It was so tasty :-) 


I was also given this Nails Inc Gel Effect Nail Polish Set :-) 


I knew I was going out for a few meals in the month of September so I decided to buy myself a new dress and chose this one by Alice & You from ASOS 


From my friends Jess, I recieved this gift set from Bomb Cosmetics. It's the Strawberry one :-) Love it!


From my Nan I was given this Photo Frame!

I really wanted one like this for my bedroom so I was so super happy with it :-) 


With the money my Auntie gave me I bought a new Makeup Revolution Blush Palette in Hot Spice! 

It's gorgeous :-)

 She also gave me a box of chocolates and a gorgeous soft toy rabbit.


My brother took me Shopping and bought me some lovely goodies from The Body Shop as they had a fab £25 off a £50 spend! 

I picked three shower gels, three body lotions, two hand creams, a shampoo and a body scrub.

I was also given two three gifts! 

The Vitamin E Face Cream and the Warming Mineral Mask :-) 




Then a few days later with some of the money I had left I made a few more purchases from The Body Shop. I like to buy in bulk and then use them through out the year!

I bought the Coconut, Mango and She Medium Sets :-) 

They had the 40% off code on at the time so they were a lot cheaper than what I would have paid! Bargain! 



A week later I took advantage of the Debenhams 10% off beauty offer code and picked up some MAC goodies. 

Two Pro Longwear Paint Pots in Painterly and Bare Study. 

Three Lipstick in Chatterbox, Lustering and Russian Red.  


I was also given some gorgeous new perfumes this year!

Coco Mademoiselle EDP by Chanel, Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf, Stella by Stella McCartney and Light Blue by Dolce & Gabbana.

The Chanel was gift for myself by myself! 

Does anyone else do that? Haha!


I was also given a few DVD's this year too :-)

Wayne's World, which I loved as a kid! The Woman In Black, which is one of my favourite horror movies. The first season of The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air & To Wong Foo, Thanks For Everything, Julie Newmar, which is another childhood favourite! 

So I was officially spoiled rotten again this year!

I can't wait to review some of these products!

 Especially The Body Shop goodies, the MAC stuff and the Perfumes! Yay!

Early Onset Alzheimer's and Living With It.



Hi Guys!

Now I'm no doctor so I'm terribly sorry if anything I write in this post is wrong in some way or offensive to some people. I just want to talk about what my family has been going through these last few years. 

On the 18th of August this year my mother was officially diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer's disease.

She is 45 years old. 



My family has a lot of history with Alzheimer's disease. When my mother was younger than I am now, she lost her father, her aunt and her uncle to Early On Set Alzheimer's Disease. In a few short years she had lost a big important chunk of her family. 

It was around six years ago when we started noticing a difference with my mother. I remember her repeating herself a lot and having to write down everything she had to do that day. For a long time none of us did anything about it because a few years before this she had been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and we had been told that it came with slight memory loss. We told ourselves that it was just that, we had nothing to worry about.  

Then when I turned eighteen. I finished a college course and started looking for work. There wasn't much around so I ended up spending a lot of my time at home with my mam. I began noticing her getting worse and worse and one day she left the house to go to the opticians. I remember getting worried because she'd been gone for awhile, I rang her mobile and when she answered, she told me she couldn't find the car. I told her to stay were she was and I phoned my father to go pick her up. He found her easily but that night we decided as a family to go to the doctors the next morning. 

It took them a long time to diagnose her, the doctor we were given in the beginning was useless and we just kept going around in circles. Then at the beginning of this year we went back to our GP and told him that we weren't happy with the doctor she was under and he was shocked to find that they had no records of any tests the memory doctor had given her. So our GP told us that she needed to see a neurologist. It took another six months to get the appointment.

 He diagnosed her within two hours of meeting her. 

Even though my whole family at that point had come to there own conclusion of what was going on it was still a kick in the teeth when we were told. It's funny, even though my mother has been diagnosed with this horrible disease. I have this fear that the doctors are going to say they were wrong and take the diagnosis away. How fucked up is that? All I can figure from it is that at least now we know, I hate the fact that she has this disease but at least now we know what we're fighting against. I would never wish the limbo of not knowing on anyone. It was the worst time of my life. 


I've been officially caring for my mam now for about two years because we realized that someone needed to be with her at all times.

What I've come to understand these last few years is that unsurprisingly a lot of the time the movies get it wrong and you can't really understand this disease unless you see it up close and personal. Until the day comes when you realize that someone you love and respect has lost the ability to write, to drive, to cut up their food, to get dressed or even say a complete sentence without muddling up their words.

So that's all I want to say about it for now, I've kept it quite for a long time. Longer than I should have. 

You know what though? A day doesn't go by that me and my mam don't laugh our arses off. I think that's how we've gotten through what we have so far. She's still my best friend and she always will be. 


Love You Mam x












Eau My Giddy God - Issey Miyake - Pleats Please EDT


Hullo Ladies!

I've been super busy this month so I have hardly posted anything lately but I thought I'd write up a perfume review as I seem to be obsessed with collecting perfumes again! 

This is a new favourite of mine called Pleats Please by Issey Miyake. 

I received a sample earlier in the year and fell in love instantly but I had so many perfumes to go through that I didn't allow myself to buy a new one. 

Finally about a month ago I finished a few bottles around the same time so I made a few sneaky orders and Pleats Please was one of them. 




I bought the 50ml bottle from Amazon for a great price so I suggest having a look on there :-) 

I would call this a unique floral scent. It's so hard to explain because I've never smelt anything like it. 

The notes are - Sweet Pea, Pear, Peony, Musk, Indole, Vanilla, Cedar and Patchouli. 

It's long lasting and has great silage so I've had many complements when wearing it. 

It also develops beautifully over time and I can honestly say it's one of my favourite perfumes right now. 

Have you tried this perfume? What's your favourite right now?

Makeup Revolution Haul

Hullo Ladies!

A few weeks ago I made a Superdrug order to try out the famous Makeup Revolution Brand that I've heard so much about recently. 

It's a new inexpensive brand that much talked about lately and I've heard amazing things about the quality so I was super excited to finally give them a go! 


The first thing I bought was this Sweet and Spicy Ultra Blush Palette. 

It's a gorgeous palette that I've been using a lot lately and I have to say I like each shade! 


The other products I bought are from the I Heart Makeup range. 

I bought the Blushing Hearts Blusher in Queen Of Candy Hearts and also the Goddess Of Love Highlighter!

As you can see, they look very similar to the Too Faced blushes but I haven't tried those product yet so I couldn't suggest if they were dupes. 

Though these are only £4.99 each which is a big price difference from the Too Faced Blushes. 


I absolutely adore all the products I've bought from the brand and can't wait to try out more.

The other products in the first photo are samples from Superdrug that came with my purchase :-)

Have you tried the brand yet? 

What do you think?

EBAY Bargain : Refillable Perfume Atomizer


Hullo Ladies! 

So most of us would have probably heard about the famous travalo that came out awhile ago, they sounded amazing to me as I'm always afraid to take my expensive perfume out with me for fear of them being broken or lost. The only catch was that they usually ran from about £9.99 to £11.99 which just seemed a bit to steep to me.

So a few weeks ago while looking on ebay I found this store that sells something similar but without the price tag. Instead I paid £1.49! 

It took a few weeks to get here but I was so excited when it finally did. It was well worth the wait to me :-) 


I decided that the perfume I would put in it was my Chanel Chance as it's one of my favorites but I hardly wear it because I don't like the idea of taking it out with me. 

Using it was was easy, all you have to do is take off the spray cap of whatever perfume you want to use, then place the Atomizer above the perfume bottle and push down so that the liquid is pumped into it.

 It has a window that shows how much is inside the bottle. 



Obviously this perfume atomizer may not be as well made as the Travalo version, which is fair enough and if you want to spend the money on the real thing then that's great. The way I see it though is that even if the atomizer breaks and leaks it's not going to make the mess it would make if it had been the perfume bottle that had leaked. Also it's not going to waste as much perfume either.

It's been in my bag since I received it a couple of days ago and nothings happened since so I'm guessing its quite sturdy. I've purchased a few more from the site which I'll link - Here

I highly recommend them, especially if your a perfume lover like me :-)

 I just keep it in my makeup bag as it's around the same size as an average lipstick tube!

 I've also had a few people comment on it and I've told them where to go to buy them. I think I'll get a few for some family members around Christmas time as it's quite a useful little thing. 

Have you tried these? 
Did you buy the real thing or did you go for the bargain like me?

Eau My Giddy God - Jimmy Choo - EDP


Hullo Ladies!

I recently finished off a few perfumes so these last few weeks I've been buying some new fragrances and this Jimmy Choo EDP was one of my first buys as it was already on my wishlist. 

I remember trying the EDT version of this back when it first came out and hating it but a few months ago I tried the EDP version and fell in love. I find it a lot sweeter and quite seductive. 


The Notes of this perfume are - Toffee, Patchouli, Pear, Orchid and Mandarin.  

I can smell the sweet toffee and patchouli which makes this reminiscent of other very famous perfumes like Flowerbomb and La Vie Est Belle but Its unique in it's own way so I think you could definitely own all three and not feel like you'd bought the same fragrance. 

I can certainly see why this is such a popular scent, it's got great lasting power and good silage which makes it great for nights out and I've gotten a few compliments in the times I've worn it out by both men and women. 


I adore the bottle, it looks amazing on my bedside table with all my other perfumes. 

I highly recommend this fragrance and suggest you check it out next time your in a store that stocks it :-) 

I bought this 60ml bottle from Amazon for about £28 which is a great bargain! 

Have you tried this perfume? what do you think of it?

REVIEW - Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks - Turn On, Anarchy + Shame

Hulla Ladies!

Exciting post for you today :-)

I'm reviewing a few of my new lipsticks which I bought from Feel Unique last month.

The Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks!!! Ta Dah :-)


With a slogan like "Creamy, Badass Luxery" I knew these lipsticks were worth a go but were they worth £15? That's what I was wondering when I first heard about them a few months back. So like everything I contemplate buying I did a quick Google search and came across lots and lots of lovely blog reviews screaming about these gorgeous lippy's

So after deciding that I would buy just one first, to see how I liked them, I searched for a shade that would be easy to wear on a day to day basis but fun all the same as I do like a bright lip. I chose Turn On which is I lovely rosy pink. I loved it on first application, it's creamy, pigmented and so pretty! It would look lovely worn on a daily basis with a nice subtle look or even paired with a smokey eye on a night out. 


From Left To Right - Turn On, Anarchy and Shame.

So a few weeks later I noticed Feel Unique had an awesome £10 a £25 spend coupon so I decided to pick up two more. 

I chose Anarchy which is a bright fuchsia pink and Shame which is a dark vampy plum/red.

Anarchy is one of the brightest pinks I've ever owned. It's gorgeous and looks stunning matched with a light foundation and winged liner. 

Shame is a very dark lipstick. I haven't had much opportunity to wear it. I feel sexy as hell when I do wear it though. I can't wait for the Autumn/Winter to get here so I can play around with it more. 


From Left To Right - Turn On, Anarchy and Shame.

All of the ones I've tried so far are great quality. They're pigmented, moisturizing and long lasting. 

The only one I could say I had a slight problem with was Shame, It did grab on to any dry areas on my lips so I suggest you use your favourite lip balm before applying. 

They all leave a lovely even stain with is nice if you hate re-applying as you can stick with the berry stained lips look or quickly apply a lip balm or gloss to revive it. 

The packaging is also stunning, it's so sleek and pretty. It looks expensive but is still subtle. It doesn't look gaudy and over done like some lipstick packages. 

I can't recommend these enough. I'm hoping to get a few more when I get that chance. I love the look of Bang and Catfight :-) 

Like I said earlier in the review these go for £15 each but I suggest you do what I do and go snooping for a Feel Unique code! 

Have you tried these lipsticks yet? What do you think of them?

Latest Additions to my Perfume Collection


Hullo Ladies!


I recently finished up a few of my perfumes so I decided to invest in some new fragrances in the last couple of weeks. 

I finished up my Oh Lola by Marc Jacobs, my Vera Wang Princess and a few of my Body Shop EDT's. I wouldn't say I go though perfumes exceptionally quick, my Auntie can go through a 100ml bottle of Tommy Girl in just a few short weeks. I'm not that bad but I do seem to find myself running out of a couple of my favorites every four or five months or so. 



Before I buy a perfume I always check on Amazon to see what is on there. I know a lot of people fear using amazon because of fakes but I always buy directly from Amazon themselves and not from an independent buyer. I've never received a bottle that way and thought it might be a fake, so I highly suggest it if you buy perfumes quite regularly like me because you can save a lot of money that way. 




The first perfume I bought is the Jimmy Choo EDP 

I've tried this perfume out numerous times in Boot's but I never seem to find it on offer there so I had a look on Amazon and the 60ml EDP was £27 which is a bargain :-) 

Like many popular fragrances out at the moment this is a sweet patchouli scent. It contains notes of Mandarin, Patchouli, Toffee, Pear and Orchid. 




In the same week I bought the Jimmy Choo perfume I noticed on the Boot's website that they had the Marc Jacobs Daisy Delight perfume on offer. As I'd just finished my Marc Jacobs perfume and I've always wanted Daisy I decided to go for it! 

It's still on offer on the Boot's website right now for £29.66.

This is a fresh, fruity floral perfume that contains notes of Quince, Apple, Sandlewood, Cedar and Freesia. 



The next scent I bought is Pleats Please by Issey Miyake

I recieved a sample of this months ago with a Feel Unique order and I new straight away that I had to own it next time I finished a few bottles. It's a gorgeous sophisticated light fragrance.

 Again I bought this on Amazon for £23.99 

This perfume is a fruity floral that contains notes of Sweet Pea, Pear, Gardenia, Patchouli, Musk and Vanilla. 


Another fragrance I bought from Amazon is Taylor Swift Enchanted Wonderstruck.

I love the original Wonderstruck and when I noticed the 50ml bottle on offer for £15 I decided to pick it up. It similar to Wonderstruck but sweeter.

It has notes of Vanilla, Wild Berries, Sugar, Passion Fruit and Woody Notes. 


The last perfume I bought was the one I wanted for the longest. 

Dolce & Gabbana The One 

This is a stunningly warm and comfortable scent that would be great for winter days and nights out. I bought the 50ml bottle on Amazon for about £32 

Some of the notes in the perfume are Vanilla, Peach, Litchi, Bergamot and Jasmine. 

It's both womanly and sophisticated and I love it :-)


So those are my new perfumes. I went overboard but perfume is one of those things that I love to splurge on and when I have a horrible day it's nice to go home and treat myself to something nice. 


All these perfume were bought by myself, I know this post probably sounds like an ad for Amazon or something but I promise it's not!

What perfume have you bought recently? Or have you been drooling after something special?

The Body Shop Sale Haul



Hi Ladies!

This one is really late as the sales been over for awhile now but as The Body Shop always have great deals on I thought It would still be an interesting Haul to show you :-) 

I love a good Body Shop Sale and the recent one didn't disappoint. 

What I did do though was wait a few weeks until right at the end of the sale so that they would bring out a coupon code to take an extra 40% off all products including the sale! 


The first few things I picked up was the Blueberry Limited Edition line. 

I got the shower gel for £1.80, the Body Scrub for £3 and the Lip Butter for £1.80. 

They all smell really good! 


I also picked up a few more things from the Tea Tree line which is my go to skin care line. 

I picked up the new Tea Tree BB Cream, the Squeaky Clean Scrub and the Skin Clearing Lotion.

I can tell you now that the BB Cream is going to be a re-purchase! It's amazing. I'm hoping to do a review soon. 

These products were not in the sale but I got them for 40% off with the coupon code! 


The last thing I bought in the sale was this Lip Butter LolliPop. 

With the Extra 40% off I only payed £6 for it!! 

I've wanted to try all these for ages! 

When I first started buying from The Body Shop one of my first purchases was the Sweet Lemon Lip Butter and I loved it because it smelt like lemon cheesecake. 

They've discontinued the line now but I've been wanting to try the other scents as I've heard lots of great things about them. So far I've only tried the Shea and Mango but I already adore them! 


So those are my recent Body Shop purchases :-)


Have you bought anything from them recently? The next thing I want to pick up is the Honey Bronzer! Apparently the lightest one is amazing for pale ladies like me :-)

My Birthday Wishlist

Hullo Ladies!

It's my 22nd Birthday Next Month! 

Like last year I've created a wishlist :-)


Chanel Coco Mademoiselle EDP -  I got a Chanel Perfume from my brother last year for my 21st and now I've got a taste for them. I love Coco Mademoiselle but it's so expensive so I'm hoping to get it for my birthday.  

Stila In The Light Palette -  I keep seeing this palette everywhere this month! It's haunting me! I've read so many great reviews for it so I'm excited to try it out. 

Converse All Star Hi Tops in Red - I've wanted a red pair of converse for years!

Nails Inc Gel Nail Polish - I love Nails Inc Nail Polish and I really want to try out their new Gel Formula. 

Vera Wang Princess Night Perfume - I finished a bottle of this last year and I've really missed it. I'm nearly all out of the original Princess too! I love both so I can't wait to get a new bottle. 

Makeup Revolution Blush and Contour Kit - I've seen so many beautiful pictures of this brand on instagram lately! This palette looks stunning and for £6 you can't go wrong! 

Makeup Revolution Blushing Hearts Blusher - This is another product I've been drooling over on instagram! It's a dupe of the too faced blushes for just £5 and they look stunning! 

Nars Sheer Glow Foundation - This is another product I have heard so much about but never tried. It's expensive so I'll either buy this or my favourite Double Wear Foundation. It's all according how brave I feel. 

MAC Eyeshadow Kit in Warm - Yeah, It's more expensive than most palettes out there but it's still a bargain! Sadly, I highly doubt I'll be getting it. If I don't though, I'll probably buy a new lipstick! Got to love MAC lipsticks! 

So there you go! 

That's my wishlist :-) HEY......A girl can dream!
