Korres Christmas | Two To Try!*

Hello everyone!

I have already posted one Christmas gift guide this year and there will be another one coming on Wednesday, but today I have two gift sets that I am dying to share with you all. The gifts sets are both from Korres, an award-winning Greek brand. I love Korres body products as they are really luxurious and leave my skin feeling incredible.

Kings Of Korres Gift Set (£20.00):
The first set I want to share is the Kings Of Korres gift set. This set contains three full sized bottles of the bestselling Korres shower gels. The three scents in the set are Fig, Japanese Rose and Santorini Vine. I love all three fragrances but my favourite is definitely the Japanese Rose. I use these shower gels both on a morning and night time as they have a lovely fragrance but aren't so overpowering that they overwhelm you. They lather up really nicely and I also love that the scent lingers on the skin all throughout the day. 


Oh Little Stars Gift Set (£10.00):
Oh Little Stars would be a brilliant little stocking filler gift as it contains four miniature body products; Basil Lemon Shower Gel, Japanese Rose Shower Gel, Basil Lemon Body Milk and Japanese Rose Body Milk. These two fragrances compliment each other really well and I can definitely see myself repurchasing other items in the same fragrances. I am actually keeping this set for when I go on holiday next year as the sizes of the bottles are perfect for travelling:)


Have you tried any Korres products before? Will you be picking up any of these gift sets?

Christmas Wish List 2017

Hello everyone!

One of my favourite blog posts to do around Christmas time is my Christmas wish list. I love sharing the items I have on my wish list, and I also love finding out what everyone else has on their Christmas lists too!

Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipstick in Posh Spice:
I am building up my Jeffree Star liquid lipstick collection because the shades I have tried so far have been amazing. The formula of the lipsticks are really creamy and they glide onto the lips amazingly well. They are also one of the most long lasting liquid lipsticks I have ever tried, so I obviously want some more shades. I have my eyes on Posh Spice as I am all about the nudes and this one looks perfect for me. 

Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit:
I know, I can't believe I have never tried the most talked about contour palette! I have been meaning to try this palette for such a long time now but I just never got round to it. I have been using my trusty Kat Von D Shade & Light Contour Palette since last Christmas, but I have hit pan on the majority of the shades so I think it's time for a new palette.

LUSH Christmas Bathtime Favourites Gift Set:
It wouldn't be a Christmas wish list without mentioning at least one LUSH gift set. Just like last year, I have the Christmas Bathtime Favourites set on my list. Inside the set you get: Golden Wonder Bath Bomb, Shoot For The Stars Bath Bomb, Never Mind The Ballistics Bath Bomb, Luxury Lush Pud Bath Bomb, Christmas Sweater Bath Bomb, Sherbet Dip Bath Bomb, Thundersnow Bath Bomb, Butterbear Bath Bomb & Snow Fairy Jelly Bomb. 

Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation in 1.0:
I've been eyeing up this foundation ever since it was first released as I have heard nothing but amazing reviews about it. I love myself a full coverage foundation, and that's exactly what this is. I have been using the Kat Von D Lock It foundation for a while now but I am interested to see how this one performs. When looking at shade swatches online I think that the second lightest shade, 1.0, would be a match for me but it is quite difficult to tell online. Let me know if you've tried this foundation and what your thoughts are:)

MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NC15:
Again, another product I have been dying to try but I've just never got round to it is the MAC Pro Longwear concealer. This is a staple concealer in so many people's makeup bags and I honestly don't know why I've never tried it as I am a huge fan of MAC products in general. If I don't receive this for Christmas then I will definitely be buying it myself as I think I've waited long enough to try it out! 

Real Techniques 6 Miracle Complexion Sponges Set:
I have been a huge fan of the RT Miracle Complexion sponge for such a long time and I have never used a brush to apply my foundation ever since I started using it! I have this set on my wish list as it contains my staple Miracle Complexion sponge, as well as a few other sponges. I have never tried the little sponges but they look perfect for the under eye area. 

Glamglow Plumprageous Matte Lip Treatment:
Glamglow are a new brand to the UK and started selling their products in Boots this year. I have been wanting to try one of their lip treatments for a while so that it why I have one on my Christmas list:) The face masks are talked about quite frequently but I haven't really seen too much on their lip products; which has, of course, left me intrigued! 

Zoella Lifestyle Festive Cookie Reed Diffuser:
I only have two Zoella items on my wish list this year; one product from the lifestyle range and one from the beauty range. I have the Festive Cookie reed diffuser on my list as I got the Homemade Treats one last year and it smelt incredible. It says on the packaging that they last for about 2 months, but mine lasted way longer than that. I love the Zoella reed diffusers in particular because they let off just the right amount of fragrance so that it's not too overpowering but you can still smell it. 

Zoella Beauty All Four You Mini Mist Set:
The second Zoella product I have on my wish list is the All Four You miniature fragrance set. Zoella released something similar last year and I loved the mini bottles as they're the perfect size for your handbag. This year the set contains Blissful Mistful, Snowella, Bake My Day and Gelateau. 

Shawn Mendes Eau De Parfum 50ml:
If you know me then you will know that I love Shawn Mendes. He released a unisex fragrance a few months ago and I have been waiting to get my hands on it ever since I heard it was being released. I haven't yet smelt the fragrance but I'm sure I will love it! The design of the packaging is also really nice, I love the rustic feeling of it. 

Real Techniques Powder Bleu B01 Soft Powder Brush, Real Techniques Bold Metals 301 Flat Contour Brush, Real Techniques Bold Metals 200 Oval Shadow Brush & Real Techniques Brush Cleansing Palette:
As well as the Real Techniques sponges I mentioned earlier, I also have a few of the brushes and the cleansing palette on my wish list. The Powder Bleu collection is fairly new but I only really want the soft powder brush as I am always losing my current powder brush! I also have two of the Bold Metals brushes on my Christmas list as the Bold Metals brushes are really soft and luxurious brushes. The final item from Real Techniques on my list is the cleansing palette. I have been trying out new brush washing techniques for a while so it will be interesting to see how this one performs.

Christmas Gift Guide For Her 2017 | Stocking Fillers (Under £15!)

Hello everyone!

This is my second, and final, installment in my annual gift guide series. As I mentioned previously; in today's post I am going to be sharing stocking filler ideas, or just gifts in general, which come in at under £15.

Cath Kidston Pets Party Stanley Mug (£7.50):
I featured a Cath Kidston item in my other Christmas gift guide and I also wanted to feature another one of their items in today's post. This bone china mug is so adorable as the pattern contains really cute guinea pigs. I think that the mug would make a really nice gift alone, but it would also be nice if you gifted it alongside a bag of coffee or hot chocolate. 

LUSH Products (£2.50 to £4.25):
I mention LUSH products every year, but I really do think that their products make great stocking fillers and gifts. I have purchased a few different LUSH products this year to give as gifts. I really recommend the Butterbear Bath Bomb, Candy Mountain Bubble Bar, and The Snowman Bubbleroon. LUSH do tons of amazing products but their Christmas range is always my favourite as the product designs look amazing, and they also smell amazing. 



Tanya Burr Cosmetics Glow Du Coco (£10.00):
The Tanya Burr gift sets are looking lovely this year, and one of my favourites is the Glow Du Coco set. In the set you get a gorgeous golden highlighter shade, a bronzer and a sparkly champagne lip gloss. Both of the powders are really pigmented and creamy, and the lip gloss smells absolutely gorgeous. I love wearing the lip gloss on top of other lipsticks; but you can of course where it alone too. I would definitely recommend this, and the other Tanya Burr sets, for any makeup lover in your life!



Soap & Glory Pick & Spritz Gift Set (£12.50):
It is definitely not Christmas without a Soap & Glory gift set! One set which caught my eye this year is the Pick & Spritz set. In the gift you get six miniature Soap & Glory items; 3 body sprays and 3 shower gels. I love S&G products so I would definitely love to receive this, or any other S&G gift set, this Christmas. 

Confectionery:
If all else fails, you can never go wrong with some confectionery! I purchased a Toblerone for one of my family members, but obviously you can choose whatever confectionery your loved one likes. Superdrug is really good for purchasing Christmas confectionery too as they always have offers and sales on:)

Which of the items would you like to receive in your stocking this year?

Shop this post: Cath Kidston Pets Party Stanley Mug (£7.50) // LUSH Butterbear Bath Bomb (£2.50) // LUSH Candy Mountain Bubble Bar (£3.25) // LUSH The Snowman Bubbleroon (£4.25) // Tanya Burr Cosmetics Glow Du Coco (£10.00) // Soap & Glory Pick & Spritz Set (£12.50) // Toblerone (£4.50)

Christmas Gift Guide For Her 2017 | Gifts £15+*

Hello everyone!

My favourite posts to write (and read!) around Christmas time are gift guides. For the past few years I have posted two gift guides on my blog, and I will also be posting two this year. The first gift guide includes products that cost £15 and over, and I will also be posting a stocking fillers gift guide very soon too. I hope that you are able to get some gift ideas from the two posts, and that you enjoy reading them:)

The Body Shop Indian Night Jasmine Eau De Toilette (£15.00):
I wanted to recommend this fragrance because I have been using it for a few weeks now and I am obsessed with it. The fragrance has got floral elements to it, but it definitely isn't overpowering. You also get 50ml for £15 which I think is brilliant as some high end fragrance brands charge £70+ for 50ml bottles of perfume. I also want to mention that I really like the packaging; which is monochrome with a pop of orange to it.



Cath Kidston Blossom Birds Absolute Manicure Set (£15.00):
If you know someone that likes to take care of their hands and nails, then this would be the perfect gift set for them. I love the packaging of this gift set as it is very Cath Kidston- flowery and girly. In the set you get four items; a hand cream, hand scrub, cuticle cream and an emery board. I think that this is set is really reasonably priced as you get four items and beautiful packaging, all for £15!


Anastasia Beverly Hills Aurora Glow Kit (£39.00):
You can't go wrong with a nice palette, especially when you see how gorgeous this one is! The ABH Aurora Glow Kit contains 6 highlighter which are extremely pigmented and look beautiful on all skin tones. I already own this but if I didn't then I would absolutely love to receive this as a gift. 



Dior Catwalk Collection Book (£48.00):
My final gift idea would be perfect for any fashion lover in your life. Dior have recently released an amazing book which shows all of Dior's fashion collections from the years 1947 to 2017- that's 70 years worth of fashion! There are 1,100 photographs in this book and I love browsing through the book looking at different fashion trends from the past. This is a brilliant coffee table book as it looks really pretty, but also makes a great read too. Be warned, though, this book is VERY heavy!






I hope that this blog post gave you some gift ideas! Look out for my stocking fillers gift guide which will be on my blog very soon:) 


Until next time,
