Five December Favourites

Hello again!
As promised I am posting on a Sunday, and from now on that will be the day I post, -every Sunday, so keep your eyes open for my Sunday blog posts everyone! Anyway this is what I have been loving this month, be sure to let me know if you have tried any of these in the comments. :)


 So firstly, I am so in love with this pallete! I know that it looks so simple but to a makeup enthusiast this is beautiful! I have been using this pallete so much lately,
 the colours are so pigmented and blend so well to create a perfect smokey eye, 
and because the shades are fairly matt they are very wearable, and 100% worth the purchase.
I have sort of cheated a little bit here in saying that this is one favourite, because I am also loving the Real Techniques eye brushes, the quality of these brushes for the price is amazing, and they are perfect for buffing in and smoking out the two darkest shades in the pallete, 
well done Sam and Nic!


My next favourite is Hair Ties, For the girls that always have a hair bobble on their wrist,- here is a way for that to look cute! Mine are from Top shop but you can get them online and in a lot of shops in the UK. These were originally an American thing but about a year ago they were released in the UK, and I have been loving them since! Basically they are a very Cute and pretty little version of a basic hair bobble, but they do have benefits on your basic bobble, one of which being the fact that they don't leave a kink in your hair, brilliant for those of us that straighten ours!

Next is a combination of the Rimmel 'Wake me up' and the Soap and Glory 'Kick ass' concealers, I love the coverage of the Soap and Glory and I love the radiance of the Rimmel, and this combination is so perfect that I haven't been using foundation for the past month, meaning better skin!


This is my 'One Line A Day Book' a five year one line a day diary, I purchased this in May but wanted to wait until the new year to use it, and though I'm yet to start, I am SO looking forward to trying this in the new year! I will have to keep to it, this book is just too pretty not to use!

Um, I really have no explanation for the last one, I've been eating so much Jelly over the last month..I just really like Jelly?

That concludes my Five monthly Faves for December, be sure to let me know if we have any in common! And remember I'm blogging every Sunday! Hope you all had the best Christmas, and have a prosperous New Year <3

Whats In My Bag? (Winter Edition)


So this is my gorgeous mini satchel from River Island, I got it back in May as a birthday present from some of my lovely friends, so i'm not sure how much it was and if they still stock it but i'm so in love with it! I love how tiny it is but looking at these pictures it fits so much inside it! The bag is textured black with gold fastenings, a gold chain and River Island plaque. It features a front pocket and a small inside pocket with a zip.


In the very front pocket, I keep my Phone, the white iPhone 4s, and my earphones, I like to keep my phone in some kind of case because though most of the time I have my phone in my hand, when I do keep it in my bag I find that the screen scratches very easily, this case is from Jack wills.

The next thing in my bag is the beautiful Cath Kidston purse, inside it just has a zip coin section and some card storage, other than money and cards, in my purse I have a bus pass, my key, a trusty Strawberry Chapstick, and some bobby pins with a hair tie.(which by the way I am loving!)

I then have a small notepad from Asda last year with a Jeweled pen, and then just some essentials, -Rimmel wake me up concealer, clear nail polish for laddered tights and usually the lip colour that I am wearing on the day, this one happened to be the Clinique Chubby Stick in 'Chunky Cherry'.

Thankyou for reading :) I'm looking to check out some more blogs so comment yours below and i'll have a look, I'll be posting again next Sunday so I shall see you then!
