Someday Summary #6

Hey Guys, 

Sorry about my lack of posts recently, working in retail means Christmas is one of the busiest times of year. Anyway I'm back with my weekly summary, although this post is a bit of a rundown of the last couple of weeks. 

  • So the biggest change recently is that I started my new job. I've gone back to working in fashion retail which I love except I am now running my own shop which is a lot of added stress hence the reason I've been coming in from work and chilling out rather than having laptop time. 
  • Then after a week of opening someone decided to break in to the shop. Luckily they didn't manage to take anything but managed to leave a whole lot of mess behind to clear up which was nice of them. 
  • Obviously it has been Christmas (and I hope you all had a really good one) not that I got to enjoy very much of it working in retail but I had a lovely day and spent it with family and loved ones.
So that is all I have been up to really. Although It doesn't look like very much now I've wrote it down I feel like I haven't stopped this last three weeks. Things are starting to calm down now so hopefully I should have more time to invest in my blog! 

Let me know what you have been up to recently.

December Favourites

Hey Guys, 

I thought I would show you the few things I have been loving in December. 

As I have been so busy this month I haven't really changed my make-up very much so I only have a couple of favorites this month. 

This first thing that I have been using so much this month is my Naked 2 palette. I found I used this a lot as its so handy to create simple quick and easy looks with this palette. 

The next favourite is this plum lipstick from Accessorize. Now it doesn't have a name so I cant recommended it to you but I'm sure if you went in you would be able to find it. It's a gorgeous dark plum shade that I have loved wearing all through December as I think it jazzes up all the dark outfits I have been wearing. 

The next thing is the Stay Flawless 15 hour primer from Benefit. Now I only got this in my advent calender so I haven't had it all that long but I already know I love it and I will be buying the full size as soon as I run out. I really notice a difference to not only how long my make up lasts but how it applies. It really helps create that flawless look that lasts all day. 

Another advent calender favourite is the mini They're Real mascara. I won't go on about this two much as I have done a whole post about this but my full size one ran out so I was sooo happy when I got a mini! 

Finally is this beautiful body butter from the Body Shop which smells of satsumas! I love this scent and I love that this is only a mini as I find them so much easier to use. The Body Shop body butters aren't that expensive but do leave your skin feeling very luxurious! 

Let me know what you loved this month.

Christmas Glitter Nails

Hey Guys, 

Today I'm back to show you some really nice nails I picked up recently!

I picked these up in my local body care after I had only gone in for some deodrant ( isn't that always the case) because they really caught my eye! I thought these would be ideal for Christmas party season as they add a touch of sparkle without being over the top! The only complaint I have with them is the stupid sticky tabs that come with them! I would definitely recommend buying some decent glue to use instead! 
I've already worn the purple ones and got quite a few compliments from the girls at work! 

Let me know if you've seen any Christmas nails that I need to get!

Benefit Advent Calendar #1

Hey Guys, 

Okay so my blogging schedule has totally gone kaput, my internet has had a meltdown and I'm having to write posts at other people's houses and then upload on my Ipad later. 
So today I am going to share what I have got out of my advent calendar so far. Bear in mind that is a couple of days late.

So as you can see after four days I am really impressed with what I have so far.
First thing first there was the super cute paper clips that will come in handy at my new job! 
Then I got a mini Ultra Plush Lip gloss in a really wearable pink shade. Ideal handbag size! 
Next was the mini They're Real Mascara! I love this mascara and it's always handy to have a spare! 
Finally there is a Stay Don't Stray concelar primer. I've never tried anything like this before but I am quite excited to! 

Where I can I will try and let you know how I get on with all the products I have not used before.

My New Glasses

Hey Guys, 

I'm back with a bit of a different post to show you my new accessories glasses. 

Before I changed my job I worked in an office using computers all the time and I knew I needed glasses as I was starting to get quite bad headaches. 
So as I suspected the optician recommended I get glasses for using computers, reading and watching the television. I spotted these ones straight away and fell in love. They are (obviously) Versace and have the small gold Lionish head on the sides, They are just the right size for me, not to big but big enough so they don't look to officey.  Now I know the picture isn't the best but it kind of shows the blue tint that the lenses have. This is not everyone's cup of tea and Stu doesn't really like it but I love it. What that does is reduces the glare from screens meaning my eyes don't strain. 

I know this is a slightly different post from me but as I wear these most days now I thought I would share them! 

Let me know what you think

Wishlist: Christmas Jumpers

Hey Guys, 

I have made it my mission this year to get a nice Christmas jumper. Last year I left it to late and couldn't get one in my size anyway :(

So I thought I would share my favourite four that I have got my eye on. 

Top Left: Topshop - Link 
Top Middle: New Look - Link 
Right: Ebay - Link 
Bottom Left: Next - Link 

These are my top four but in all honesty I think I'm edging towards the Ebay one. I think it kills two birds with one stone as Home Alone is one of my favourite films and the jumper would be a good talking point. 

Let me know if you have already got a Christmas jumper or if you wear one at all.

The Christmas Tag

Hey Guys, 

So its the 1st of December which is when Stuart officially lets me play christmas songs or even mention christmas at all. So I thought I would start this month of 'blogmas' off with the christmas tag. 
I haven't actually been tagged to do this post but it looked fun so I thought I would invite myself to do it.

1. What is your favourite Christmas Movie/s?
I love christmas films, I don't think there is any that I've seen that I don't like. But I think that my top three would have to be Home Alone, Miracle on 34th street and Santa Claus the movie (the original) 

2. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
When I was younger we were always allowed to open one present on christmas eve, and it just so happened that they were always our new pj's. But now I'm older I open all my presents on christmas morning. 

3. Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?

I think the first Christmas I can remember I was about five and it was the year before my brother was born. All I had asked for was a pink bike, I came down on the morning and opened all of my presents and was so upset that there was no bike, until my mam shouted Santa has left something in the kitchen for you. Sure enough there was my brand new sparkly pink bike and I was over the moon. I even think I cried and wrote a really long thank you letter to Santa.

4. Favourite festive food?
It's not really a festive food but I always eat a massive, and I mean massive, amount of ferro roches!!

5. Favourite Christmas gift?
My favourite christmas gift has got to be little legs (zan) techinically I got him after christmas but I used christmas money to buy him. 

6. Favourite Christmas scent?
This is a tricky one for me because I don't like typical christmas scents, I hate cinnamon and spice scents. I would have to say I really like vanilla scents or cooking smells.

7. Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
No not really any more. When we were younger me and my two brothers used to squeeze into one bed and watch christmas films. I would always make them listen and they were convinced they heard bells every year. 

8. What tops your tree?
A sparkly gold star!

9. As a kid what was the one (crazy, wild, extravagant) gift you always asked for but never received?
Every year without fail I would ask for a pony! My older cousin had her own horse and I was almost green with envy! 

10. What's the best part about Christmas for you?
For me the best part of christmas has to be when someone I love, loves  the present I have bought for them. I try to put a lot of thought in to christmas presents and when someone really appreciates it, it makes it all worth while. Oh and pigs in blankets!! 

So there you go, I tag anyone who wants to join in!
