Christmas Outfit of the Day!

Hello! This is my christmas 2012 outfit of the day! Well it's not really what i wore on christmas day but today it's family christmas at my auntie's house so it sort of counts! The pictures are terrible because i took them on my phone so sorry about that! But here you go:

Dress: Topshop (£26)
Red Knitted Cardi: New Look (£17.99)
Black Tights: Primark (not sure of the price but really cheap!)
Brown Boots: Primark (£20)
Oh and i picked up my bracelets (if you can see them) from a cute little shop in the market bit of Athens, Greece! I have three, each of them a different colour, and one says Smile, one says Believe and the other says Love. I absolutely love them so i might post about them again soon!
I love this outfit because it's a sort of vintage style and quite casual but it still looks lovely! And it's made up of quite basic wardrobe pieces, a dress+cardi, but you can experiment with the colours and styles if you want.
Hope you like this outfit and it gives you some inspiration maybe?
Comment and tell me what you think!
Lots of Love
P.S: I hope you all had a lovely christmas!

Saturday Questionnaire!

I saw this done on Beauty Splash, which is an amazing little blog, and i decided that it would be a lovely little thing to do so here you are! It's my saturday questionnaire ~

1. Mood:
Super excited because OMG IT'S NEARLY CHRISTMAS!

2. In what order do you apply your make-up?
For school i put on concealer, foundation, more concealer (to cover up any extra blemishes i still have), mascara and then lipgloss. But at a weekend i put on concealer, foundation, more concealer, eye-shadow, this little sparkly blusher thing, mascara and then lipgloss.

3. What is one thing that made you smile today?
My dad took me out shopping to this new retail park thing, so i could buy presents for my nan to give me, and we went to costa and had a nice hot drink and a chat, which was lovely.

4. Current nail polish?
Natural Collection's Prauline. I brought it yesterday, because i've tried lots of natural collections nail polishes (the colours are beautiful and my nails seem to stay perfect forever) and the colour really stood out to me. It's looks lovely, really wintery (is that a word?)

5. Have you ever had a kiss under the mistletoe?
No :(

6. Current outfit
A grey jumper with little silver beads all over it (i'm not sure where it's from though), Primark black skinny jeans and a black strappy top!

7. Moment of truth: do you usually drive above the speed limit?
I can't drive yet!

8. If you could spend the holidays anywhere in the whole world, where would it be?
I wouldn't want to spend christmas anywhere else but at home with my family, it's the best place.

9. Do you know any sign language?
Only my name! And to be honest i don't know if i can even remember that!

10. Weekly Goals:
Well i need to get all my presents sorted (2 days left eeek) and buy some nice cards for my family! And i need to some how create  a christmas show in a week, ready for my cousins to perform on saturday! That should be intresting...

If anyone else wants to do it, feel free! I'm not going to tag anyone, so it's up to you if you want to or not! But thankyou for reading!

Last Minuet Presents!

So it's 8 days until christmas. I've been a bit rubbish this year and i haven't brought a thing! To make things worse, my school doesn't finish until thursday, and then i have a meeting on friday, so i'm not going to make it shopping until the weekend. And anyone who has ever experienced last-minuet christmas shopping (especially in a city with a population as high as peterborough) will be able to tell you that it really isn't an option. So i've been making my gifts this year! It's an great little idea, that the person recieving your gift will love. It shows just how much you care.

Here are just two of my idea's for quick and easy gifts that your loved onces will love!

I love scrapbooks! The best thing is you don't have to be a crafting genius to make a nice one! Sometimes the best are simple. Just buy a blank scrapbook (Hobbycraft has some really nice ones), print off some nice photos and get to work. Decorate your pages with lots of cute stick-ons! Glitter, buttons, stickers... whatever you want! The Craft Shop does some really cute ones.

(We Heart It)

Personalised Canvas

 The name says it all. This works well as a kids present - but you could adapt it for adults too. Just buy a canvas, from an art or craft shop, buy some stuff to stick on it and get going! You could paint the canvas if you choose (use acrylic paint, it's the best one) but it's up to you!


If you need any more ideas just ask!

Tried and Tested: Soap and Glory - Flake Away Body Polish

So the last time i did tried and tested (if you haven't read my review yet it's here) you guys seemed to like it so i've decided to test another product! And it is...

Soap and Glory - Flake Away Body Polish

This is what Soap and Glory's website say about it ~

"A superhero strength skin smoothing body polish with shea butter, sweet almond oil, peach seed powder, sea salt and sugar. Transforms your scaly legs from reptilian to radiant. Scented with our Original Pink™ fragrance."

And i know most of the time companys really big up their product to make to buy it and then it turns out to be a litle bit crap but this description is honestly so true! I love this product so much! I used it earlier after shaving and my legs feel so smooth and lovely.

The only problem i had with the product is after i washed it off, all the little salt bits went to the bottom of the bath, so after all the water had gone down the plughole i had to use the shower to wash it out and that took forever...

But apart from that i couldn't reccomend this product more! It's makes your legs feel so silky smooth and it smells lovely!

Hello December!

Wow how quickly has this year gone! It feels like the last time i looked at my calender it was May! It's amazing!
I absolutely love December. It's my favourite time of the year and i always seem to end up counting down the days until it begins again, the minuet it finishes! So i've made a list of some of my favourite things about December!

I know it's an obvious choice but it's the best part of the month. It's all my favourite things packed into one day - decorations, presents, roast dinners, family, friends and happiness.
2) Hot Drinks and Starbucks Red Cups

Winter is the best time of the year for hot drinks and Starbucks make it extra special with their cups! A hot drink and a cheeky cake when you're taking a break  from your christmas shopping on a cold day; what's better than that?
3) Christmas Music!

However cheesy and annoyingly catchy most of the songs are, you have to love christmas songs! They really get you into the festive spirit and make you want to join in and dance around!
4) The Holidays!

No work or school? Enough said.
5) Christmas Cards!

I love giving and recieving christmas cards! They're little bits of love in letter form! My house is always full of them, and i like to put up my ones in my bedroom, but they normally don't come down till easter because i enjoy looking at them so much! And what's better than a homemade christmas card?
6) Snow!

Even though we don't get much of it in the UK, the snow is one of the best parts of winter! I love waking up in the morning looking outside to see the world covered in a snowy white blanket - it's beautiful!
7) Shopping!

I love christmas shopping, picking out special gifts for those special people in your lives! And at christmas it's exta special because all the shops are decorated and have beautiful window displays! One thing i am rubbish at though is sticking to a budget! If i see something that 100% suits a person, i have to buy it (no matter how much it is). And one thing that is especially great is how you can buy yourself things whilst shopping but it's ok because it's an 'early christmas present'...
8) Christmas candles!

I'm not normally a candle person but brought one last week and i absolutely love it! It makes the room smell all lovely and christmasy (is that a word?)!

9) Lights!


One of my favourite memories of christmas when i was younger is when we used to visit my grandparents on christmas eve and drive back in the dark and sometimes the snow, and on the way we'd drive through lots of little pretty villages where all the houses were lit up and looked beautiful! So i guess that's something i'll always love about christmas!

So that's my list of some of my favourite things about christmas! What are yours? I'd love to hear some of them :)

Lots of Love
