Xmas Beauty Buys

Its 4 weeks today till Christmas and I'm getting so excited!!! I have nearly finished my Christmas shopping and I'm hoping I have a little bit left over the treat myself to some new beauty products soon as I haven't tried anything new for a while apart from a Demalogica Daily Microfoliant I got in this months Glossy box which I love so good for sensitive skin and its great to clear out the pore after a weekend of celebrating.

1. Real Techniques Brushes - These are buy one get one half price at Boots at the moment so this may be a before Xmas treat everyone raves about these and I really want to see if they do create the perfect flawless finish. Has anyone tried these?
2. I love this make up bag from ASOS would brighten up my dressing table and makes a change from all the winter black and grey shades around.
3. Origins Mask Set- I have read a lot of reviews on Origins and tried a few of their products and I personal find they real suit my very sensitive skin as all the ingredients are natural and the brand is created my the granddaughter of Estee Lauder which is a brand I use daily.
4. Origins Be Bright - I had a sample of this Mega Bright primer and I can't lie it is amazing my skin has never looked so bright and it showed through my make up at £46 I couldn't afford the product but this gift set is £49 which means your saving £39 seems too good to be true.
5. I had a sample of Burberry Body in my Glossy box and I am hooked so many people have commented on the scent and it lasts all day.

I think all of this would make perfect gifts for beauty addicts or anyone who wants to try out new Brands. Has anyone else finished their Xmas shopping?

35 days....

This is super quick post because I am waiting for Made In Chelsea to come on I hate it but I love it!! All the ideas below are one I would love to give but also would love to have under my tree. How cute is the dog ring holder! Also I may already have 30+ scarves but I am currently searching for the perfect plain kitted scarf to wear with patterned jumpers.

1. Benefit minis gift set- Perfect if you like to try products out an then buy or like me you normally end up coming out in a rash from new products.
2. Maybe the new scarf??
3. A lovely mix of winter shades by Nails Inc
4. A bunny ring holder what more can I say!
5. Rose gold studs the perfect winter arm party.
6. My bathroom needs this and my mum wants it too so daddy!!!!
7. A tiny bit of bling to sparkly up the nasty weather outside.
8. Everyone raves about this primer so this sample size would be a good place to start and continue my Benefit love affair.

Has anyone else started Christmas shopping??

Playing out....

I wore this outfit a while back for a night out and I still love the colours so I thought it was worth putting it on here. Whenever I wear this skirt I'm not sure how it makes my figure look I think I need to try styling it in other ways which balances out my top half with the volume of the skirt, how would you style this??

That said this is the most fun skirt to spin around in on the dance floor!!!
Skirt - River Island Bralet - Internacionale Bag - River Island Shoes - River Island
Sorry about the amount of River Island on this post I have been really impressed with how they have changed their stores over the fast few seasons I think to designs and trends they choose to work with has changed and developed to create a new customer base and they are now mine and many others go to store. I even find myself thinking that this year they have more to buy and inspire than Topshop. Does anyone else feel the same?

Sad Knees.....

I failed my driving test today which is so annoying as I was completely ready for it but the nerves got the better of me and I made a stupid mistake! Now I'm a little down about it so I've made a little wish lift of an outfit I would love if I could go out dancing tonight (which I'm not) but my little sister just let me eat the brownie mix out of the bowl and I'm going for a drink with my friend later so my mood is picking up.

Anyway back to the point, I'm loving this sack look dress at the moment and the pattern is perfect for the baroque trend. I've chosen simple shoes and bag as the dress is quite a statement I'm still searching for the perfect nude heels and have been for a year or so, heel heights vary so much now and think now internet shopping is so popular shoe shopping is becoming harder and harder. To go with the look I would go for a messy updo a smokey eye and a dark lip.

Dress - River Island - £60 Shoes - Zara - £49.99 Bag - Reiss - £156
How would you style this dress? Any tips of cheering yourself up after a little fail?
