November 2014 DesgustaboxUK

Degustabox* is a new thing for me, I have seen so many reviews on these boxes and knew I really wanted to give them a try and I am already so impressed! When it comes to food, I generally don't like to try new things but with Degustabox I have found some new foods that I have fallen in love with and I am so glad to have received this box this month as it is a good'en! Degustabox is a food subscription service where each month you receive a box with 9 - 14 products for much less than you should pay in the shops at just £12.99 a month with free shipping!

Sephora Wishlist

I have found myself browsing the Sephora website on a daily basis (blogger problems) and I have decided that if I get some money for Christmas I am going to place a little order. There is so many amazing sets on there at the moment so hopefully some will still be in stock when it comes around to placing my order! I am so jealous of all of you that can actually go into a Sephora, the UK needs to hurry up and get a few stores!

REVIEW: Yankee Candle Christmas Garland

I am slowly but surely making my way through my new Christmas scents from Yankee Candle and this one, Christmas Garland, has to be my favourite so far. This year Yankee Candle has released four new scents for the festive season, Christmas Garland, Icicles, Candy Cane Lane and Angel Wings. I have recently been going for the Wax Tarts because I find them to have a much better scent kick off and sometimes with the larger jars I get bored of the scent before I am even half way.

Five Christmas Gifts For Men

Finding gifts for the men in your life at Christmas is like the worlds hardest mission, at least for me. They never know what they want or they just won't tell you - how annoying! However I have found five gifts that I think any guy, no matter if they are a boyfriend, dad, uncle or Granddad, in your life would like up wrap under the tree this year! (Dad if your reading this click off now or your going to see some of your presents!)

REVIEW: Lush Butterbear

Christmas at Lush is my favourite thing. I always stock up at Christmas because lets me honest, Lush Christmas products are better than any other products for the rest of the year! Butterbear was just too cute to leave in the dish so I knew he had to come home with me. Out of everything I purchased in my recent lush haul, he excited me the most because of how cute he was! I just couldn't wait to pop him in the bath and see what happens.

Christmas Jumpers 2014

It is only ONE MONTH until the big day (yes you heard me right), so I think it is now socially acceptable to rock the Christmas jumper. I am obsessed with them and already have a few, I just love the cheesy ones! I love Christmas so much so why not show it with my clothing! All of these jumpers are from either the Very or ASOS websites, both sites of which have super speedy delivery which is always a bonus!

Christmas Beauty Gifts £25 & Under

Finding beauty gifts that aren't super expensive can be a bit of a struggle. There is so many stunning gift sets available for this year but quite a few have a heavy price tag. I have made it my mission this year to find Christmas beauty gifts for every budget, whether it be £5 and under, £15 and under and now £25 and under. I think all of the gifts I have featured in these posts are fab and I would be pretty happy if I unwrapped them on Christmas Day!

Christmas Gifts For Pets

I am a massive pet lover, I have a bunny called Bluebell and I am going to be honest.. she got a whole stocking full of presents last Christmas. Yes, I am that crazy pet lady but I know I can't be the only one! This year I have found so many Christmas items for the pets in your life, I have already brought almost the whole of the Rabbit section out in Pets at Home! From fashion to treats to toys there is something for every pet in your life!

REVIEW: Lush Northern Lights

Christmas at Lush is my favourite time of the year because they have such amazing products and this year was no different. If you had seen my Lush Haul, you would have seen that I picked up the Northern Lights bath bomb, new for this year! Out of all of the bath products I purchased in that haul, I was most excited about Northern Lights, it just looked amazing and I couldn't wait to pop it in the bath and see what all the fuss was about!

REVIEW: A-Derma Sensitive Skincare

Finding a skincare line that works for my skin is near to impossible for me. I have strange skin, it certain areas it is so sensitive to the point where if it dislikes a product it will go bright red and the skin just flakes off and some products bring back painful lumps that I used to get in my teens. However this skincare range from A-derma* has been a lifesaver and I am so happy to have found products that work well for me and my sensitive skin.

Top 5 Glitter Nail Polishes

With the festive season fast approaching I want to get into the Christmas spirit already and I am doing it with my nails (it isn't acceptable for a Christmas jumper yet is it?). Glitter nails looks great at any time of the year but especially at Christmas. I always find myself go between these five polishes out of my whole nail polish collection so I thought it was only right to share them with you all! Three of the polishes are from OPI which has to be my favourite nail polish brand which is why three out of the five are from OPI.

Christmas Beauty Gifts £15 & Under

Us ladies can be the easiest or the hardest people to buy Christmas presents for. We either have loads of ideas of things we would like or none at all! But you can never go wrong with a good beauty gift. Whether you need a little something extra to go along with a bigger gift or a secret Santa gift, I have got you covered! I know I would be happy receiving any of these beauties this Christmas and so many others will too!

Barry M Christmas Tree Nail Polish

This festive season, Barry M have brought out a range of glitter polishes perfect for the party season. Trying to track down my favourites was a bit of a pain as they are spread across stockists. I popped into Superdrug one day and stumbled across the polish from Barry M in the shade Christmas Tree and knew I had to have it. In my opinion, this is the best polish out of all of the Christmas ones released this year so if you can only pick up one, go for this one!

Christmas Beauty Crackers 2014

Christmas Crackers are a must have in my house, whether they be on the table for Christmas Dinner or whether have they little treats inside as a gift. More and more brands are bringing out Christmas crackers with year filled with beauty goodies! Some brands have individual crackers which make perfect gifts or a set which are great if you know you are going to have beauty lovers round for dinner during the festive season, these would be a perfect edition! I know I will be getting my hands on a couple of these this year because I just can't leave them on the shelves - they must come home with me!

REVIEW: Yankee Candle Angel Wings Tart

If you saw my review of Candy Cane Lane from Yankee Candle, you would know how much of a disappointment it was. Because it was a new scent for this festive season, I had really high hopes. Included in the new Christmas collection this year was Angel Wings, Christmas Garland and Icicles. Angel Wings is the second scent from the new collection and I am very impressed! I picked the tart form again as I find them to be much better value for money and normally kick off much more scent than the jar candles.

REVIEW: Lush Dashing Santa

If you saw my Lush haul, you could have seen all of the festive goodness that I picked up recently, Dashing Santa included. Dashing Santa is a bath bomb which means it is going to fizz around your bath releases a beautiful fragrance and turning your bath water a completely different colour. I was pretty impressed with this bath bomb and I'm not even a bath bomb fan really so that says something!

Wintery Wishlist

The weather is officially chilly outside and it is almost my favourite time of the year..Christmas! I love all the cosy clothes and all comfort food. I could honestly live in the North Pole, I am all about the cold weather and snow, please snow this year England! My winter must have is always Ugg Boots, I cannot be without these in the cold months, I know they are very love/hate, but you can't beat toasty feet when its snowing out! How cute is that coat?! My mum actually has a grey version which makes me want one even more because it looks great on her, who doesn't want to look and feel like a teddy bear?!

Beauty Stocking Fillers £5 & Under

Finding Christmas gifts under £5 can be very difficult if you don't know where to long, especially with beauty products. Sometimes you just need a little gift to go with something or as a little gesture but finding one that isn't expensive is a hard task. All of these items are under £5 and I will definitely be purchasing a couple to go with presents or as a little something extra with a card. From nail files to bath bombs to nail polish to rubber ducks, there is something for every lady in your life!

Forever Repurchases

I am not a massive repurchaser when it comes to beauty products. I am always looking to find the best of the best products and try all of the new releases. However I have found four beauty products that, in my opinion, are the best of the best and I don't think I will ever be able to not have them in my collection. Three out of four of these products are ones that I have only tried for the first time this year, I have no idea why it has taken me to long to try these products!

Christmas Beauty Baubles/Tree Decorations

Cute packaging sucks me in every time! I am completely in love with the Christmas Beauty releases this very and I can't not talk about how many beauty Christmas decorations I have found this year. So many of these are incredibly affordable which will make them perfect for Secret Santa gifts or a little something extra to go along with a present or card. Because you can hang these on your Christmas Tree, I think a wonderful idea is to hide these beauties on your tree for your friends to find and pick one out - so much fun! I think I might hide one or two within my tree for a little surprise for my mum and sister as I think they would really love that!

Everyday Eyeshadow Palettes

Getting up at 5am every morning for work just doesn't work for me, I am always in a rush or forgetting things which is why I needed an easy go to eye look. These two stunning palettes have been in my make up bag everyday since I got them and have found myself using these palettes to create so many different eye looks, from everyday simple to a dramatic evening look.

REVIEW: Yankee Candle Candy Cane Lane Tart

Christmas scents from Yankee Candle are my all time favourite so when I heard about Candy Cane Lane, I knew I had to get my hands on it the second it was released. Candy Cane Lane is one of four new scents released for the festive season, joining Candy Cane Lane is, Icicles, Angel Wings and Christmas Garland, all of which smell incredible and I cannot wait to burn them. Each scent is available in three different types, Jars (Small, Medium and Large), Votive, Tea lights and Wax Tart which I own. I prefer to purchase the tarts because at £1.49 for 8 hours of fragrance and generally they kick off more scent than some jar candles from Yankee Candle.

Christmas Beauty I'm Excited About #6

Its about seven weeks until Christmas so we need to get our gift shopping sorted! Even with it getting closer and closer to Christmas by the day, companies are still releasing their holiday products and it is so exciting! I can't believe this is my 6th post about beauty releases for this year which is insane and I am still finding new products by the day.

REVIEW: NARS Blush in Sin

NARS is a brand that is pretty new to me, not because I haven't heard of it but because I have hardly tried anything from the brand. I have only tried a couple of the eye shadow duo's and loved them so I knew I wanted to try a blush and Sin* was just calling my name. This shade is unlike any one I have ever seen or own which is what attracted me towards it and I have fallen in love.

Festive Lush Haul

With Halloween out of the way, I feel it is socially acceptable to start getting out the Christmassy items and listening to the good old Christmas music. Lush is one of my favourite brands for bath products but I only really shop there in the festive period because their Christmas items, I think, are a thousand times better than the permanent line. I know I will have to make another trip to Lush soon because I am going to need to purchase these before I run out!

DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom Fragrance

Fragrances are one of those products that are very personal and not everybody is going to like the same scents as you but I have always found DKNY Be Delicious fragrances to be a winner. When I was around 14, I wore nothing but DKNY Be Delicious (the green one) and I always got compliments on it and it was just kind of known for being my scent. Years have passed and I have fallen in love with the DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom* and I think it may have just become my new favourite fragrance.

Christmas Beauty I'm Excited About #5

I cannot believe this is my fifth post about this years beauty releases for Christmas - craziness! The releases are flowing in and I just want to go and buy them all, its killing me that I can't because I need to get my Christmas shopping done! Everyday I am finding more and more Christmas gift sets so it would be rude of me not to share them!

Festive Yankee Candle Haul

Its the most wonderful time of the yearrrrr! With Halloween out of the way, I am in full Christmas mode which resulted in purchasing all of these Christmas Yankee Candle Tarts. Yankee Candle is by far my favourite candle brand, they have such incredible scents and they are even better at Christmas. I picked these scents from all over the place, eBay, a garden center and ASDA. If you haven't already got yourself a Yankee Candle Tart Burner, you need to go get yourself one this second. Mine has been the best purchase of the year and each tart comes in at just under £2 for 8 hours of beautiful fragrance.

Roger & Gallet Sorbet Body Lotions

Keeping my skin hydrated during the colder months is a pretty hard task for me as I can never find the right product. I hate body lotions that leave your skin feeling sticky and oily which is what puts me off a lot of brands but I don't have any problems with these Body Sorbet Lotions* from Roger & Gallet. I have the scents Gingembre and Cedrat, both of which smell amazing, I need to get my hands on the other scents soon!
