Christmas Throwback

So I have gone through Facebook and all the laptops in the house to look for all our old christmas December photos with a Christmas theme so here are the findings. Looking at these pictures have really made me smile, we did have some more but I just can't find them.

This is super bad quality but I think was two years ago at Broadditch farm when we went to buy a tree, we had a look round the shop and myself and my mum decided that we wanted to take a selfie in these super cool glasses.


This is 2012 when we decorated the living room and bought new decorations, I love this picture it makes me feel so cosy.
I love this collage I made two years ago I think and Cooper my dog was being super cute and he got lots of presents on Christmas day.
This is in 2011 and we had snow in December but not christmas day. This was like the beginning of December and we went to a winter wonderland somewhere and they had like a little zoo bit then we went and bought ice cream. Also I am now realizing how…

Santa Hat Brownie Recipe

I think these are adorable and arguably healthy (its christmas after all), but I am not very good at baking at all and I attempted to make these following the recipe on the Oh sweet basil blog but they were a big fail! So here is the Santa Hat brownies on her blog as I'm sure they are very lovely I am just not very good a t baking so here is my take on this recipe in a much more basic and less home made way. You will need: Brownie ready made mixPunnet of Strawberries110g Butter500g Icing sugar60ml MilkIt is as simple as that so get a bowl and make the brownie ready made mix as it says on the box as every recipe is different. Then put that in the oven to cook as the instructions say.Next you need to make your butter icing which is the white bit of the Santa hat. Add the butter and icing sugar into a bowl and then whisk with either an electric whisk or with hand whisk until smooth. Add in milk to loosen the mixture if necessary adding it in bit by bit.When you take the brownies out …

Secret Santa

This year at school my form did Secret Santa and then at lunch time myself and all my friends within my friendship group did our annual present trading. I thought I would show you what I received as it may give you some ideas for some last minuet presents which you might not have got yet. I honestly received really lovely presents and I am so very thankful for them and I am by no means here to brag about them, none of my friends had to get me anything.







Awards Presentation grwm

On Wednesday evening it was my award presentation for completing my bronze duke of Edinburgh award so I thought I would show you how I prepared for this and some of the actual award ceremony. For this event I wore my New Look Jeans and New look Jumper, my everyday make up routine which I showed you in a recent blog post with a bit of contour as well.
First I had a bath and washed my hair so it was fresh and nice for this evening I got out the bath applied a little bit of fake tan to give me a little glow and brushed my hair. I let my hair air dry and then straightened it.



Next I did my make up using the naked palette and other product which I mentioned in a recent blog post. Then I got dressed into my outfit, put on my diesel Loverdose perfume and was on my merry way.



Ice Skating blog

So to make thing a bit more casual than normal I thought I would make a little day in the life blog. On this day I went to bluewater to go ice skating at their outdoor rink with two friends, it was lovely, very festive. They had such a cool massive tree in the middle of the rink 
I wore my new look jeggings, primark top, new look leather jacket, next bobble hat, before and after I was on the ice I had my new look black lace up boots on. I had the urban decay Naked eye shadow in the shade buck on my eyes, they're real mascara and my Avon lip kit on my lips.





Festive Hairstyles

So I have never attempted to do a hair post before as I'm not great at explain what I do so here goes my first ever try! Here is how I will be doing my hair for this festive period:

1. Twist into a bun 
This is one of my favourite hairstyles which I have and will continue to wear to christmas parties this festive season it is more of a dressy hairstyle but it can be made really casual by pulling bits out and dressing it down. take all your hair and part it in your natural parting, mine is to the left side of my head.Go to one side at a time and just take two small bit of hair and twist them round adding in small strands of hair every time going down until you get to the bottom. Then get a bobby pin to hold it together an repeat on the other side.Once you have finished both sides take the bobby pins out and get all you hair into a low ponytail at the bottom of your head, twist it to get it into the bun shape and secure with a band.Pin and secure your bun how you like it and if you w…

Bobble Hat Season

I have a major love for bobble hats and this time of year is perfect for them, however I feel like hats are looked upon as a large statement and big fashion item which is why a lot of people don't wear them so I am going to show you my favorite bobble hats, and some of the best beanies that I own as I believe they deserve some real appreciation!







Christmas Decorations

I thought I would share with you all the christmas decorations have around the house and they make me so happy and I always feel very festive when I see them plus they are so much fun to put up and I hope it inspires you and makes you feel festive too!







December Wishlisht

Tanya Burr Martha Moo lip gloss
Not sure why this s called a gloss as its matte but oh well lets just role with it. I really want this product since everyone have raved about it but every time I have gone to purchased it it has been out of stock which is so annoying but I have my eyes open so I can grab one as soon as I find one. It is just such a pretty dirty pink colour perfect for ant outfit.



Mac Nutcracker sweet warm eye Compact This is just my palette with all the caramel and warm colours. These are my type of go to safe colours but they have such a beautiful finish. Mac product are normally of the best standard and this palette excites me. It also has some darker colours in there so you can create a dark smoky look as well. Its just perfect for every occasion and gives the opportunity for a subtle or dramatic look with a mix of matte and shimmer colours.


Maybelline Master brow Pro Palette
I am loving the look of this new palette as it has three different colours for you to use in …
