Christmas 2015

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 Pink jacket is actually a set it came with the matching yoga pants as well however I was wearing them when I took the photo so I couldn't include them but they are so comfy its crazy.

I am such a movie person I love going to the cinema or watching a movie at home, although there's only two movies in the picture above I did get three dvds for Christmas I was just already watching one but the case was downstairs. I got Maze Runner which I love I haven't seen the second on yet but the first one is brilliant! I got Max which is all about a dog who is adorable and loyal, I had already seen the film before I got it on dvd but now I can watch it whenever I want and lastly I got Paper Towns, I love John Greens style of writing and the fault in our stars was so good even when it got turned into a movie so I really wanted to see Paper Towns.

My Nan and Pops got me so much, I cant believe it. They got me my running trainers they are particularly supportive of my running so they always offer to get me trainers or clothes for running and I love them so much. My Nan got me the Urban Decay Naked palette, I have always said my favourite palette was the original one so she remembered that and got me the eye shadow palette.

I have taken art as a GCSE so my family bought me lots of art equipment theirs so much its not all in the photo but I got new pencils and pens and books which I really love and I enjoy doing art anyway so I have already started using all the nice art stuff.

For make up I obviously got the Urban Decay naked palette but I also got A eye shadow from Kiko in the shade 18 ombre a paupieres ombretto. I love this eye shadow so much it is like a gold and brown colour and it is so gorgeous. Before Christmas I looking at all my make up and thinking  have no gold eye shadows at all and I really do love gold toned eye shadow make up looks. I also got the Tanya Burr lip gloss in lunch date. I did get the old range so just the plain black boring looking packaging but still the same shade and this is really nice on its own and paired with a lip stick I got ages ago from Kiko.

I hope you all had a brilliant Christmas and I'm sorry for taking so long to post this I wanted some time of blogging whilst I had all my family around for Christmas.

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 next day. We've had all the ball balls for years and picked then up from a variety of places. 

We also have a fake tree every year for our conservatory but because we recently got new furniture in it we have no room for the tree so I stole it and used it for my room I really love this tree as it has blue light on the end of the branches and decorated with all blue and white accessories which matches my room perfectly and it is my favourite colour.

My first Avon order

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, Graphite, was on a £6.00 deal which was buy on get one free but  I had only chosen the Graphite, my friend who does Avon saw what had happened and picked out the colour for me and I'm so glad she did as it is a beautiful colour. Graphite was the original one I chose and I just love how dark and glittery it is, I don't have a nail varnish like this in my collection so that's why i picked this colour. Both colours are quite Christmas appropriate I think which I love as I am in full Christmas mood right now with the Christmas jumpers and decoration so this is just perfect.

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 are a pot of 20 nail varnish remover pads. They are so good for when your travelling and don't want to take a whole bottle of nail varnish remover around with you or just feel like being lazy. They are so good for your nails they have vitamin B5 in them. I really cannot remember where I got these from.

Max Factor 2000 Calorie Waterproof Mascara
I've been really loving this mascara as it makes my lashes very long but they stay individual they don't bunch together. I really like this high street mascara you can get it from boots for £7.99. When they first made this mascara it wasn't waterproof then they remade it and added waterproof into it which made it even better. My go to mascara right now.

Grey Nail Varnish
I did mention this in a previous blog post but its all I have been wearing right now so I thought it deserved another mention. This is the Laque Ultra Shine Bourjois Paris nail varnish in grey.  It takes two for the varnish to be prefect and not chip then I wear this all weekend before I Have to take it off Monday morning. I remember buying it from Boots but I haven't got a clue what it cost.

Starbucks Flask
Where its been getting colder I have been taking my flask to school with me and to football games just everywhere and it is just so amazing. It keeps my drink hot for so long it is made so well to stay that hot. Its also quite tumblr and a Copper/Orange colour. Obviously it was from Starbucks it was £16.50. They had lots of different colours and designs.
