My Year in Review | 2015

2015 has been a year of ups and downs for me. As we head into 2016, I decided to take a quick look back at the fun things I did, and the amazing people I spent time with, in 2015. 

First up, a lass I couldn't that I couldn't of gotten through 2015 without, my best friend, Leanne. She always gives the best advice, whether I take it or not is another matter! I have learnt this year that she is always right though. Always!

Merry Christmas | The Christmas Tag

Merry Christmas Everyone! I can't believe it's this time already, and that we'll be saying goodbye to 2015 in a week. 

I hope everyone is having a great day!

Today, as it's Christmas Day and all, I thought I'd do the Christmas Tag. I haven't actually been tagged by anyone, I just thought it'd be fun. Here goes...

1. What is your favourite Christmas movie?

Well this one is easy peasy. Elf. I love Elf so much. It never fails to make me laugh. "Santa! Oh my God! Santa's coming! I know him! I know him!" Best part of the movie, right? I even have Christmas pyjamas with it written on, you'll have seen them in this post.

My Christmas Eve Pyjamas

OK, I know I'm 28, but I still have to have new pyjamas for Christmas eve. I always have and I always will. It's a tradition in our family and I'm sure it is for a lot of you, too.

Last Minute Luxury Gift Ideas

If you still haven't quite found that perfect gift,but you're looking for something super special, here are a few last minute ideas...

The STOW Leather Travel Phone Charger Wallet is a great idea. I have a portable charger for my phone, but it doesn't look too pretty shoved in my handbag. This leather wallet is beautiful on it's own, but the fact that it has a portable charger inside makes it incredibly handy, especially for anyone who's constantly on-the-go. You can also get this monogrammed, but unfortunately you've run out of time to have it embossed in time to give as a Christmas gift. Maybe there's upcoming birthday?

My Winter Pamper Routine

On a cold, dark, winter night there's nothing I like more than having a bit of a pamper before bed. For me, that's nice long bath with a few of my favourite products. 

I use different products when I take a bath, but generally I like something that is going to make bubbles. I love bubble bars from Lush, but they're a bit of a treat for me. I'm really enjoying Soap & Glory's Daily Soothe Bath Float. It is a thick bubble bath that comes in a tub. You scoop up a handful and swirl it through the running water in your bathtub. It is scented with bergamot, blackcurrent, magnolia, feesia, vanilla and musk. I'd describe it as yummy ha. 

Once I'm in the bath I like to pop on a face mask. Currently I'm enjoying using the Super Facialist by Una Brennan Tea Flower Deep Clean Pore Purifying Clay Mask. Phew, long name! Basically a clay mask that draws out any impurities in the skin. What I like about this particular clay mask is the way you can see where the impurities are being drawn out as the mask dries. I feel like I can see the mask is actually doing something when I use it.

What to Wear | On Date Night

What to wear on date night? It can be tricky. Obviously you want to look good, but not *too* dressed up. Smart/casual is what I aim for. For me, that means wearing a heel, but that depends on what type of date you're going on. If it's cinema, a meal or drinks, then this is the type of outfit I'd go for...

Christmas Gift Ideas | for a Beauty Junkie

There are so many beauty gifts on the market, how do you choose the perfect pressie for the beauty junkie in your life? I've chosen my favourite beauty gifts that I'd love to find under my tree..

First up, you cannot go wrong with a MAC lipstick. I repeat, you CAN NOT GO WRONG. My absolute favourite right now is MAC's D for Danger, a gorgeous deep plum. If you're not sure what colour to go for, pop to a MAC counter for some advice. Maybe ask what the most popular colours are and choose one of those?

Winter Skin Essentials

My skin is a mess at the minute. I have combination skin, which is oilier in the summer and drier in the winter. Right now, with the cold weather, wind and central heating, my skin is definitely feeling a bit parched. It can get really sensitive, too, so I have to be careful what products I use.

How To | Wear Layers like a Pro

Sometimes layering can be tricky. Get it wrong and I look approximately three times bigger than I am. OK, that's an exaggeration, but I feel like it. I'm tiny, so looking even one dress size bigger makes me look s much shorter, in my eyes. So layering can be my nemesis sometimes!

Christmas Gift Ideas | For a Fashion Addict

If, like me, you haven't really started your Christmas shopping, and you're on the lookout for some gift inspiration, then look no further. Today my gift guide is for someone who is a fashion addict. I picked out things that I would like to receive, so I know other gals that love fashion too would love one of these under their tree!

First up a nice scarf. Pick out a nice pattern and make it chunky so it's nice and warm. 

Maybe a hat to match the scarf? I like bobble hats personally, but beanies are cute, too. 

This small bag from River Island is great for an evening bag, can't go wrong with a bit of snake print, either. It's basically a neutral!

A marble phone case is something so many of us will be lusting after this year. Who doesn't want an Instagram-worthy phone?

And finally, I actually received this book from my bestie for my birthday last year and I love it. A great little coffee table book.

Christmas Party Make-up | Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette

It's that time of year, where we all have at least one Christmas party to go to. That means choosing what you're going to wear, how you're going to style your hair, and of course, planning your make-up. 

I'm totally obsessed with MAC's D for Danger lipstick. It's such a beautiful colour, and I like to wear it during the day and for nights out. Therefore I'll be wearing it at every given opportunity, but for my Christmas party I decided to jazz up my make-up a little more and

Winter Favourites | My New Coat

I've fallen in love, with a coat. 

It's been a long, long time since I've loved my winter coat as much as I love this MissGuided beauty. I first saw it a few weeks ago, but it sold out before I had a chance to order it. I was gutted! I didn't think it would come back into stock, but luckily for me it did.
