December Favourites!

Hey everyone!
 
So I'm going to write my Decemeber favourites for you today, luckily I've able to upload this quicker than I uploaded my November favourites!
I have 6 favourites for you this month including makeup, fragrance, skincare and music!
 
First up is the Cacharel Scarlett Perfume.
Yes, this has been included in my favourites for October, November and December but it has a very gorgeous scent and I've been wearing it pretty much everyday so I had to include it again!
 
Next is another fragrance and it is the Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy La Fleur Perfume.
If you saw my 'What I Got For Christmas' post, then you know that I recieved this for one of my Christmas presents this year.
It has a gorgeous scent to it that lasts for a very long time. I have been wearing this since I was given it and I can tell this will be in a lot of my monthly favourites posts!
 
Next is the Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder - 001 Transparent.
I purchased this after my e.l.f. powder ran out and this is a very nice product! It sets your makeup well, lasts for a very long time and provides a small extra amount of coverage.
 
Next is the e.l.f. Nail Polish - Red Velvet.
I used this for my Christmas nail design and it is a gorgeous shade of red with slight shimmer.
A very festive colour that can still be worn all year round!
 
Second to last is the LUSH Ultrabland Facial Cleanser.
I purchased the 45g tub of this in July and it lasted for about 5 months and I decided to purchase the 100g tub. This is a really good product and is definitely one of my holy grail skincare products!
I recommend this to anyone and will continue to repurchase this.
 
Last is the Red (Deluxe Edition) - Taylor Swift Album.
 
I also recieved this for Christmas and I have had this on repeat since I got it and it is a really good album. I recommend this for everyone to listen to!
 
That's it for my December favourites and I wish everyone a happy new year!
What were you loving throughout December? Have you tried any of these products?

Christmas Haul | What I Got for Christmas 2012

Hey everyone!

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas!
 
Today I am going to show you what I got given for Christmas this year from my friends and family!
I love reading blogs and watching these types of videos and first of all, I am not bragging about what I got given but I have been asked by some people to write this so I thought I would:)

I got a lot of chocolate like every year but too much to photograph!
I also got more money this year because I wasn't sure what to ask for but I got given some stuff that people might think that I would like.

I got these Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips - 330 Fly With Me
These will be great for french tips or all over the nail if I don't have enough time to paint a design.
These are a gorgeous design and can't wait to use them!
 
I got this Strawberry Cube from The Body Shop which contains a loofah sponge and two miniatures of the Strawberry Shower Gel and the Strawberry Body Puree which smell gorgeous!
 
The Japonesque Professional Lash Curler has been on my wishlist since I saw it on YouTube in Sineady Cady's (The Make Up Chair) videos.
It is a lot easier to curl your eyelashes with this than the traditional style eyelash curlers.
 
I didn't ask for anything nail polish related but my mum found this Runway Nails Inc Set which contains a nail file, 6 full size Nails Inc polishes and a mini bottle of the Kensington top coat.
The full size nail polishes included are; Porchester Square, Marylebone, Holland Park, Tate, The Thames and Blenheim Terrace.
 
I also got a 40ml bottle of the Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy La Fleur Perfume.
This has both gorgeous packaging and a gorgeous scent!
 
I got this Boutique Compact Mirror which is gorgeous and helpful to put in my bag seeing as I lost my other compact mirror.
 
I got this Polka-Dot Photo Album as well but I have another 2-3 photo albums to fill up before this one!
 
I got this phone charm and tree decoration as well as a handmade necklace, some nail gems and nail wraps as a few mini gifts.
 
I got the Deluxe Edition of Taylor Swift's album 'Red' from my sister.
I've had this on repeat since I got it and it is a really good album!
 
This set of miniature shower creams was also a mini gift and contains 3 shower creams.
The scents are fruity citrus, tropical coconut and fruity lemon.
 
This is a set of Mark Hill hair products that I got from my mum and stepdad which contains 4 different hair products to give you straighter hair.
 
I also got this tin of 4 different Nivea lip balms.
 
My grandparents gave me this 500ml bottle of the Taaj Eau Micellaire De L'Himalaya Micellar Cleansing Water.
I have had my eye on this since I saw it in a few of Zoella's YouTube videos.

This is the Rio Nail Studio which is designed to make it easier for you to paint your nails with a tilted hand rest, nail polish holder and a bottle with a pump action for nail polish remover.
 
I got three miniatures of the Soap and Glory Daily Smooth Body Butter, Scrub 'Em and Leave 'Em Body Buff and Clean On Me Shower Gel.
 
Finally, I got given the Official 2013 The Big Bang Theory Calender.
 
So that's everything! I am very grateful to everyone for what I was given:)
 
Thanks for reading and I have three posts lined up for you soon!
What did you get for Christmas? What was your favourite gift?

November Favourites!

Hey everyone!
 
I'm sorry I'm posting this quite far into December but I haven't been able to find a spare moment to write this post but anyway here are my November favourites!
 
 
First up is the Aussie Take the Heat 3 Minute Miracle Deep Treatment Conditioner.
 
I purchased this recently when Superdrug had a 'buy one get one free' offer on some Aussie products.
They didn't have my usual condiitoner in stock and I had wanted to give this a try and I really like it!
It leaves your hair feeling really soft and smooth and I would definitely recommend this for a occassional deep treatment for your hair:)
 
Next is the L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil.
 
I purchased this quite a long time ago but didn't really use it but recently I have been using a few drops of this after washing and straightening my hair.
I apply it to the ends of my hair and a little bit above and I can see a slight difference.
A few people have also asked whether or not I had died my hair but seeing as it is the only new product I have been using regularly on my hair I knew it was this!
This oil also makes your hair feel incredibly soft and smooth:)
 
Next is the Cacharel Scarlett Perfume.
 
I actually included this in my October favourites as well but I have been using this everyday in November and everyday in December so far.
This has a really gorgeous scent to it and I have had a lot of compliments:P
 
Next is the Vaseline Limited Edition Creme Brulee Lip Balm.
 
I borrowed this from my mum for a few days but I have been using this for over a month now and I really like it!
It is very moisturising and it smells amazing however, it isn't the best product for chapped lips.
 
Second to last is the NYX Concealer Jar.
 
I purchased this at the Olympia Beauty Show at the end of September and I have been using this under my foundation where I need a little extra coverage but not under my eyes.
This is really creamy, gives great coverage and blends very well.
 
Last is an Essie Nail Polish.
 
This is the colour Exotic Liras and it is a really gorgeous shade of red that is inbetween burgundy and a classic bright red.
This applies really well and lasts a very long time!
I definitely recommend Essie Nail Polishes.
 
Thanks for reading and I hope you found some new products to try out!
