Christmas Beauty Haul

So this is a bit of an odd post in some ways, as I was going to post a ‘What I Got For Christmas/Birthday’ thing, but have been working a lot (yay retail at xmas…) and predominantly got books & dvds. I am very pleased with everything I got*, but I don’t want to bore you all with them. Then I went sale shopping & found nothing in most stores, so I have combined those beauty items with the others for one picture heavy beauty post!

*except maybe a christmas cake liquer I got for my birthday. I’m scared to try it.

My 2015 Life Goals


For some reason, I really don’t like the idea of New Years Resolutions, but will happily think of some goals for the upcoming year. I think the difference is that a resolution is an idea people have that they then don’t stick to (e.g. stop swearing) whereas a goal is an achievable target. Am I the only one who thinks this?

Empties 4


I think this is my biggest ever empties post, I’ve had a few things coming close to finishing for a while which I’ve finally managed to use up! Some of these are firm favourites which I’m sorry to see go, but others I am glad to see gone.

Switching To Sulphate Free Shampoo – Reviews


Wow has it really been a month and a half since I last did a hair related post? I can’t believe how quickly time is passing me by at the moment. In my last post about switching to sulphate free, I promised a more long term update and I have now had chance to try out a couple of the other shampoos that I mentioned were on the market, so I’m going to do some quick reviews on them for you.

Little Lush Christmas Haul


In my last post, I talked about how I find candles to be a great way of relaxing, especially in the winter months. Another thing I like to do is have a nice long soak in the bath (again with a book, it’s such an easy way to escape from it all). My favourite bath products at the moment are definitely from Lush. It was only a couple of months ago that I made my first Lush purchase and since then I’ve been steadily growing a small selection of their products – mainly the bubble bars! I’ve been really liking trying out some different products from their seasonal range and decided to grab a couple more bits before they disappear from stores after Christmas.

Yankee Candle Christmas Cookie Review


One of my favourite things to help me relax on a cold winter’s evening is to light a candle. I often read or watch a favourite show whilst one is burning, as the comforting scent spreads throughout the room. Somehow, that makes it seem so much warmer and cosier.

December Glossybox First Impressions


Is it just me, or has the past month passed by in a bit of a blur? Because somehow it’s Glossybox time again and I haven’t actually had chance to try out everything in my last box! I know, I know, it’s really bad, but hey this month’s box is beautifully decorated for the festive season and contains some lovely products.

Soap & Glory The Perfect Ten Palette


I am so impatient to share my new eye shadow palette with you all! I’ve been thinking about buying a nude palette for quite a while now and was looking at saving up for a Naked Palette at the end of the month, but I found this beaut in Boots the other day. I left without it, came home and looked it up and regretted not buying it, so I rushed back to get it before work yesterday. And I am so glad I did.

The Body Shop Glazed Apple Body Polish Review


Is it just me or has this year flown by? But as it is now December I wanted to share with you this beautiful body polish I picked up recently from The Body Shop’s Christmas range. This year they have brought out three seasonal scents – frosted cranberry, vanilla brulee and glazed apple – all of which smell delicious, but I fell instantly in love with this particular scent and bought not only the polish, but the shower gel and lip balm too!
