Black Friday Mini Haul

A slightly belated Happy Thanksgiving to all of my American readers! I hope you all had a great holiday. I may be in the UK, but in recent years Black Friday has become a shopping event over here too thanks to American owned retailers like Asda. I personally don’t see why people want to go and (literally) fight over TVs, etc in the supermarkets, but I did pick up a few bits in some of the online sales.

10 Christmas Gifts Under £10

Gift List

We all know that Christmas can be an expensive time of year. I personally have 12 people to buy for as well as several friends and family members’ birthdays in the surrounding months. Budgeting is therefore very important and trying to find a great gift on a budget can be really difficult. So I have put together this little list of some cool gift ideas I have found for £10 or less. I hope you’ll forgive the 25p over spend on the last item!

NOTD: Essie Liquorice

At first look, this may seem like a very boring manicure and I guess in some ways it is, but I am a big fan of dark nails and regularly wear black varnish. Recently, I purchased this bottle of Essie in the shade Liquorice on a whim, as my other black is quite old and is getting a bit gloopy.

Smashbox Studio Skin Foundation Review

IMG_1865

I was lucky enough to get myself this bottle of foundation free on a promotion Smashbox were doing last Friday, where the first 20 people to their local Smashbox counter got a bottle of foundation just by showing that they liked their facebook page. How could I say no to that?!

My Birthday & Christmas Wish List

Bday & Xmas Wishlist

It’s that time of year again, where people have started asking me what I’d like for my birthday/christmas and what exactly my plans are. I am very fortunate and there is nothing I really need, so I’ve been struggling a bit to come up with answers this year. The thing that absolutely tops my list is to be working as a designer, but as this is something they can’t get for me, I’ve put together a list. Although I have cheated slightly and put some things on here which I know my mum has bought me!
