Tis The Season

December is just around the corner so that means party season is soon approaching and its time to find that perfect dress for those festive parties! 

Here are a few I've picked out which will be ideal for any outing in the weeks to come! 

1- This Black chiffon flippy dress from Top Shop is the perfect little black dress with gogeous details on the collar and around the waist which makes this such an eye catching dress. I couldn't find a better LBD it has all the things you would want in a black dress and more its simply yet chic!

2- You cant have Christmas with out a bit of colour, especially red. I've picked out this little number from H&M. This dress is soo pretty its ideal for any occasion team this with some killer heels and accessories and you'll be away. Also at only £14.99 a total bargain for a fabulous festive dress!

3-  I do love a LBD at Christmas but I think I've fallen in love with this gorgeous maxi dress from River Island .The detail in the top is stunning especially with the simplicity of the skirt just makes this dress even more amazing. You wouldn't need to have any statement pieces with this it will simply do the talking its self at any Christmas do. 

Hope you've found your ideal Christmas dress!

The Christmas Tag!

I've seen this tag go around on a few blogs and as I'm soo excited for Christmas I thought I would give this a go!

What is your favourite thing about Christmas?

I  just love Christmas! I love the atmosphere around this time of year, every ones getting soo excited! Walking through the city just as it gets darks and seeing all the Christmas lights and decorations come to light. The amount of food and nibbles you have at Christmas too! And just having cosy nights in with the family as the big day approaches! Its exciting! 

What is your favourite make up look for the festive season?

This year I'm really liking the darker lips trend, so over the last week or so I've been mainly having dark lips and basic face.

Real tree or fake tree?

Since i was little we've always had a fake tree, as there's four of us running around think it was just easier! We would all take part in putting the decorations on, one by one putting our favourite on first.

Giving presents or receiving presents?

Both! I do prefer giving presents, I always go over the top with gifts and this year is no different, can't wait to see people faces!

Do you open your Christmas presents morning or evening?

When I was younger we would get a sack at the bottom of my bed full of goodies and being so excited and just couldn't wait we would all get together ridiculously early and open them, then go back to bed and open the ones under the tree at about 8. Now a days its not so early..  

Handmade Christmas cards or bought?

I generally buy handmade ones from this cute little shop called belly button fluff, their cards are adorable! 

What is your favourite Christmas film?

Oh i have so many, Love actually, Elf, The holiday are my top three favourites to watch. 

What is your favourite Christmas food?

Turkey sandwich's on boxing day best things to much out on! 

I'm even more excited for Christmas now after doing this tag! Now I tag  you, what are your favourite things about Christmas?

Dove Nourishing Oil Care Conditioner Review

This express treatment conditioner from dove I cant rave about enough, I love it! After dip dying my hair a few months ago, I had been noticing that it had started to get quite dry and very undernourished I'd heard a lot about using oils in your air to keep it healthy but as my hair can get greasy quite quickly I didn't want anything to oily, then I spotted this on Blue October blog and thought why not try oil in a conditioner. The product its self has gold and white stripes through it, the gold contains nutri-oils with argan, coconut and almond oils which are suppose to smooth, nourish and replenish essential nutrients and the white stripe contains a treatment that seals cuticles to lock in nutrients. After using this my hair feels a lot more nourished, healthy and smooth, and over the last few weeks I've noticed that my hair had felt a lot stronger, this has become my must have conditioner for my hair and I couldn't bare to be without it!

Have you tried this or any of the dove hair range?

Blistex Daily Lip Conditioner Review

On one of my many trips to boots during last week I picked up this Blistex daily lip conditioner. I get very dry lips during the cooler months so anything to keep them in tip top condition I am all for. This balm contains olive, grape seed oils and also aloe vera which after trying this for the past few days, my lips have been feeling soo much healthier and hydrated. The product doesn't feel to thick or greasy on the lips, its very soothing and moisturising shall defiantly be repurchasing this and I would  recommend this to any of you who also suffer with very dry lips too.

A Little Haul

Hello Lovelies!

Whilst trying to get my Christmas shopping started, I picked up a few little things for my self..

I popped into boots and picked up a fair few things, starting with some neutrogena products, I'd tried out their plain visibly clear oil free moisturiser and really liked it, and heard good things about the grapefruit one so going to give this one a try. Also from their visible clear range I got their 2in1 wash and mask, I've tried it a few times, and as a mask I really like it! I Finally have had my brace off after nearly two years and this white glo tooth paste was one of my first purchases, I want to look after my teeth more now after having it off and as i drink a lot of tea and coffee I thought this would help keep them clean and sparkling white! I picked up a few nail polishes I know I really don't need any more.. but I really wanted to try out the new Barry M Gelly high shine nails, so picked up this one in watermelon, and I love the colour, its a  deep bottle green, its soo pretty!  I also picked up this silver glitter, and have worn it over a nude MUA nail polish and its soo lovely together. 


I picked up a few winter warmers from primark, these pyjama bottoms are soo comfy, I love the prints on them too. Primark always has a really good selection of sleep wear and for £5 each I couldn't say no! I love getting cute pattern socks around Christmas and these ones from H&M are so cosy, shall be picking some more of these up!

Batise Dry Shampoo Review

Batiste dry shampoo, you've all seen and heard about it, and its one of my most used products recently! I had a real issue of having to wash my hair everyday which is so bad for your hair I know.. I just couldn't stand to leave it for a few days but over the last month or so I've gotten into the habit of  washing my hair every other day and using batiste in-between washes and I must say I loves it! I didn't get along with it at first as it just made my hair feel powdery but I stuck with it and now I cant go with out it! My hair can get quite greasy, which is just not nice and this helps soo much in-between washes, also as my hair is quite thin and limp it adds a lot more volume to my hair by just using a little bit. I will definitely be repurchasing another, I also really like the scent of this one and will be trying out some of the other scents too! 

What are your thoughts on batiste?

I am absolutely loving denim shirts this season, especially this dark wash studded shirt from glamorous,  a key piece for winter. 

2. Maxi Skirt- River Island
This maxi skirt is just soo pretty, i love maxi skirts in the winter teamed with a chunky jumper!

Jumpers are my go to for winter and I have my eye on this one. I just love the detail the studs add to a simple jumper.
