Christmas 2015

Disclaimer!!! I am not trying to brag about what I got for Christmas pr show off or anything it was requested on my Pinterest that I do this blog post and I probably wouldn't of posted or written this if it wasn't requested. Rant over...

I was so lucky this Christmas and just got spoiled rotten, nobody had to go and get me anything but they did and I am so grateful. My parents bought me my main present which was a apple watch I got the sports one as I have been wanting one for ages as they are meant to be brilliant for running. I got the rose gold one which came with a lavender coloured strap but as another present I got a white strap as I said all along when I was fantasizing about having one I would like the white strap. My Mum and Dad also got me the Pandora rings which I haven't taken off yet as they now my favourite jewelry ever. I love the look of the stack able rings they do, my Mum has some and she got me two which I am so grateful for and just love so much. The P…

Picking the Perfect Christmas Tree

So every year we ( my family and I) always buy our Christmas tree from Broadditch Farm in Kent. As as usual we went there again this year to purchase our tree. At Broadditch farm there is a big duck pond, farm shop and barns, the farm shop is open all year round and the barns open up for special occasions like the halloween haunt fest which I went to and Christmas for trees and decorations.
As you go into the barn you can look at whatever tree you want and they have people there to help you get the trees out and look at them. They are all pre-cut down so it is no hassle to get the one you want. Then to the side of the barn they have this little extension where they sell Christmas decorations, lights and little ball balls; just all cute little festive things. I honestly would buy everything in that shop if I could.




I though I would use this blog post as and excuse to show you some of my Christmas decorations. When we got the tree home we let it drop overnight and then decorated it the…

My first Avon order

Surprise mid week post!!

So I have never ordered from Avon before, I have always looked through the books and heard about it but I'd never placed and order. A friend has been doing it for a while but I never thought about getting anything until she had a book on her so I had a flick through and they have some really nice Christmas sparkly nail varnish, I just had to get one.

I had heard a few negative things about Avon nail varnish but I thought I would be the judge for myself, I found none of these things to be true. It was a lovely colour the same as in the bottle. It only took one coat to get a true colour. It was long lasting, it lasted me all weekend without any chipping or scratching, when it was time for it to come off it came off nicer than I thought it would because usually with glitter you have to fight it to get it to come off.

The lighter more gold colour is called titanium. I didn't actually pick this colour it just happened that the darker colour I ordered, Grap…

November Favourites

I do try and do a monthly favourites every month but I just barely ever remember but this month I did, which is actually sort of good because it could help you with Christmas gift ideas. So here is what I have been loving this month.


Next Festive Spice Fragrance Candle
So this is quite christmassy (not even sure thats a word) but I was burning it and enjoying the scent all through November so it is still aloud in my favourites. It honestly smells so amazing it says it burns up to 55 hours and it literally is lasting so long. I love the Next home department and this was only £6.00 what a bargain.



Rimmel London Clear Complexion Transparent Powder
So before I start I would like to say this has been battered in my make up bag so all the writing on the lid has completely scratched off. I used to prefer Matte powders until I tried this one as it makes my skin look so much more flawless. I bought it from Boots and it was £3.99.



Quickies
Quickies are a pot of 20 nail varnish remover pads. They …

The skincare tag

I've seen the skincare tag going around on other people blogs so I decided I would give it a go so I hope you enjoy...

1.  How many times do you wash your face daily
 I wash my face twice a day. Once when I wake up just after I brush my teeth, and then again right before I go to bed after I take my make up off.

2.  What skin type do you have?
I have dry skin in the summer and the slightest bit of warm weather. My face just peels but in the winter my face is more normal just oily enough to stop me from peeling but not too oily.

3.  What is your current facial wash?
I currently use the Simple skincare facial wash as I honestly think it does wonders for my skin.

4.  Do you exfoliate?
No, not really. I have in the past before fake tanning but not normally no I don't.

5.  What brand do you use?
I always use Simple. Simple all the way!

6.  What moisturizer do you use?
guess what...I use simple skincare.

Yes, I have lots of them.

8.  Do you use eye cream?

Autumn make up

I decided this year to do a autumn make up look. I think make up is a very personal thing. I do make up with one main rule which is heavy on eyes or heavy on lips, this means if I go particularly heave and bold on either my eye make up I would go light on my lip make up less dramatic. I know some people in autumn go very dark on the lips but I much prefer to go dark and dramatic on they eyes, so here is how I achieve my autumn look. I hope you like it as much as I do. No make up \/



To start of for my foundation/base I use the max factor pan stick, I used the pointed foundation brush by real techniques. I applied a really thing layer on my skin so it is still light and not to harsh on my skin as I'm only fourteen I much prefer to keep it light as otherwise it doesn't look right on my face.

So I am not one to pretend I have perfect skin so I used the Rimmel wake me up concealer to try hide or "correct" my imperfections. I just dab a bit of the concealer under my eyes,…

Pick your own Pumpkins

For years now I have wanted to go pumpkin picking I think it sounds so much better going and getting your pumpkins from a big field where their fresh and good rather than digging out a half decent pumpkins in the horrible box in Sainsburys where every single pumpkin is bruised or tiny. After football last Sunday a family were are really good friends with were going so my family went with them and we made it a really good day out of it, picking our own pumpkins then going to McDonald's after. The place we went to was Beluncle farm in Rochester, Kent. As we were driving there it looked so busy and packed out we thought we were only going to get tiny unwanted pumpkins but as we got closer there were still thousands of massive perfect pumpkins left in the field, plenty for the thousands of people that were there. Wheel barrows were supplied so you wouldn't find yourself struggling to carry all your pumpkins around juggling them as you try and get more, you could just shove them i…

I am obsessed with autumn themed blog posts so I am trying to space them out a bit, not doing very well though as I have written so many. I decided today I would share with you my autumn wishlist of mostly beauty related products I would love to have right now!

1. Urban Decay Naked palette
I know there are three but I Am so obsessed with the first one. I would love to have this especially at this time of year as it has some of the most lovely colours in it for this time of years. There are so many different looks you could create with this palette it is perfect.

2. Kiko Milano Creamy lip gloss
I saw this and it was truly love at first sight! I love the colour this one is on the shade 108 watermelon. It is such beautiful pink shade, its not too outrageous and bright it is fairly subtle and would so good with a nice with a dramatic eye look.

3. New Look Matte Grey Nail Polish
So I went into New look and had a look at their make up and nail polish section and I saw all the matte nail po…

What's in my bag

I'm not going to pretend I'm perfect most of the time my bag if full of crumbs, sweets and empty wrappers, but because I'm sure you can imagine what that looks like I'm not going to show you and embarrass myself.


So constantly switch between these two bags depending on my outfit and what bag goes best. The brown smaller is from New Look and the black bag is so old I have no idea where I got it from but I do love the way it can be carried in two ways with the across the body strap or the hand clasp.


Perfume: I have the Next Cashmere perfume in my bag as its not too expensive to replace if I lose it or it bakes. It smells lovely and at first I was really cautious about putting a glass bottle in my bag but it seems that this is working really well for me. I love this for when I just need to freshen up a bit.
Key: Well I just need my keys, kind of important.
Hair pins and bands: I always keep these in my bag because I will sometimes have my hair down and get so annoyed with …

Caravan week

I forgot I had written this post and it was meant to go up in the summer holidays and now we are close to autumn it isn't as relevant but I really loved this place so I thought I would still show you this...

For personal reason this year myself and family were unable to go abroad to we had an England holiday in Hopton, Norfolk. I stayed in a caravan at the Haven site in Hopton, well it was lovely I only wish I could have stayed longer. My caravan was in the sea view bit of the park and I had a beautiful view of the sea the beach was just down these steps so we had direct access to the beach which was really good. Although the weather wasn't the best (aka it rained most of the days I was there and didn't stop!) my family and I made the most of it. Our caravan was perfect for our family and couldn't of been in a better location.


On the Haven site there was lots of nice places to eat. On caravan sites I often find that the food facilities aren't great but this wasn&#…

What I got for my Birthday 2015

Very quick disclaimer I'm not bragging at all about what I got some people are just interested in what I got so I thought I would share it with you.
So last Sunday was my birthday I turned 14 and I was very lucky and got lots from my family and friends...
First I was super lucky and got two pairs of converse. I already have a navy blue pair but they are battered and quite literally falling of my feet as I walk so as a little surprise my dad got me a new pair for my birthday. I really love the colour burgundy and I have been looking at these converse for ages and clearly my Mum noticed so it made me so happy unwrapping these.

So this perfume is my most favourite perfume ever! It smells so lovely and my whole family know its my favourite it was a perfect present, Thank you!

I always look at Mac lipstick and I think yeah they so expensive and knew which two shades I would like so my Nan got them for me. I received the crosswires and chatterbox and I love them so much, my favourite i…

Brilliant Barbecue

To meet up with everyone during the summer my family and I had a little BBQ for our friends from football as we all get on so well and known each other for years. My mum and I prepped all the food after that it got cooked on the barbecue by my dad, everyone loved the food. We made a salad containing a wide variety of a healthy goodness which was important to intemperate in the summer because that's when I get unhealthy because I'm out of routine plus general barbecue meats.
As barbecues are traditionally in the garden we took this as a great opportunity to make our garden look nicer by repainting all the fences with two coat of water proof paint which we got from B&Q. We hung some bunting around the tables on the patio area to add a splash of colour I mad this from scrap material a few years ago when I first got my sewing machine. As this barbecue so in the evening people actually need to be able to see their food so we hung pretty little fairy lights along the fence and …

Back to school

Back to school dates are getting closer, some people are already back and all though it is the summer holidays which are made for chilling everyone still has to thing about getting all new uniform and school supplies. I just got my favorite school supplies, my shoes (I am obsessed with shoe shopping so this was easy), my bag and pencil case. I know nobody likes this time but sadly we all have to go back to school at some point :-(

I got these school shoes from Next, I found this year they didn't have such a wide variety of school/work shoes, however this wasn't a problem for me as I knew what shoes I wanted and I found them straight a away. These cost me twenty eight pounds. They are some basic black patent lace up but they are exactly what I was looking for and perfect for me.

For my school bag this year I spent a lot more money on a school bag than I ever normally would but this bag should last me a very log time and is big enough for my needs. I got this bag from Victoria …
