Christmas Gift Guide | Luxury EDIT!

Christmas Gift Guide | Luxury Items!





Prepared to part with your heard earned cash but struggling for ideas? For those who are lucky enough to be giving the gift of luxury this festive season, I have just the list for you! Christmas is more than likely always going to be the most expensive time of year, so if you're one to go all out but struggling what to buy, I suggest you take a quick look at this guide. Hopefully I can help!

As I featured in my £25 and under gift guide post (link here), Ciaté are always so on point when it comes to Christmas collections. If you're willing to spoil the surprise and deliver your gift a few weeks early, this nail polish advent calendar is a perfect present for those avid nail enthusiasts (I know a few...). Lipstick is undoubtedly a statement in a makeup bag, so how about treating someone to a gorgeous Tom Ford one - I promise they won't be disappointed. Something I have always thought about but could never fathom paying the scary price tag is the Clarisonic. Not only that, but I've heard they are either a love it or hate it Marmite type thing. I'm sure I'm not the only one to feel like this so why not buy it for them! Jewellery is always going to be a safe option. Despite this, I feel like jewellery will last you forever and as they say 'jewellery is for life, not just Christmas'. Actually... I don't think that's what they say. Regardless, you'd have to be mad to refuse this stunning Tiffany necklace!

Do you prefer buying one big presents or lost of little presents when it comes to Christmas?

Have a great day!

Christmas Gift Guide // £25 And Under | Stocking Filler EDIT!

Christmas Gift Guide | Stocking Fillers!






As Vogue would say, more dash than cash? Here I have all the reasons why you should take off the bah humbug hat and put on your festive shoes! You don't have to spend a lot of money to make those special people in your life happy. I simply asked myself the question, what would I love to unwrap on Christmas morning that wouldn't cost an arm and a leg... Hence why all the items featured in this are under £25! You'll thank me later.

What would Christmas be without sequins? With the party season just around the corner this bejewelled clutch will take you from day to night in no time. At the bargain price of £17.99, your LBD won't be so boring anymore! Another gift idea that has been taking over the market recently is the Benefit gift sets, ranging from £19-£44, you are guaranteed to put a smile on someones face. They have all you could ever want in miniature size with a minute price tag. Word of advice: If you're going to be making someones day with these adorable Ciaté Christmas baubles, buy them online here and save yourself some money; they currently have a 2 for £12 offer! I don't know anyone who would say no to a Zoella product, (well maybe my dad... But back to the gift guide) so spoil someone with the gift of Zoe Sugg!

What would you like to unwrap on Christmas Day?

Have a great day!

SKIN SAVIOUR | Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish!


I love doing these skin saviour posts! If you haven't already seen my previous edition to this kind of post I will link it here. I think skincare is something that is very personal to you and your skin type, and whenever I'm choosing a new skincare product I like to my research prior to investing in something; This is just an easy way of finding out which skincare products I'm loving and recommending to you all!

I know I'm late to review this, and you probably already know how incredible this product is. Despite that the word on the street is 'no publicity is bad publicity', and so I'm going to sing it's praises once again because it truly deserves it...

This product is so kind to the skin it is almost unbelievable, I feel it would work really nicely for someone who has sensitive skin. My skin isn't particularly sensitive however even some of the ingredients that are added to products that are specifically designed for sensitive skin make me break out in all kinds of nasty blemishes; that is something I most definitely could do without! If I'm having a bad skin day (more often than not), I find using this at night and leaving it on for a few minutes before washing off with the muslin cloth provided with purchase, I achieve an incredibly smooth and soft face by the time I wake up, with visibly silky soft skin. 

It has an absolutely delicious creamy formula which feels like a dream when applied onto the skin. One pump usually does the job for me depending on how much makeup is on my face, usually not much as I tend to use a micellar water beforehand. Using a small amount also makes this product last a very long time, because let's be honest, who wants to be buying a new cleanser every week? Even your tough waterproof mascara will budge when this cleanser is doing it's job, it makes the break-down of makeup so much quicker and simpler! It lathers perfectly and feels like it is really cleansing my pores which I think is very hard to find, especially if you're on a budget.


*TIP*: Buy your Liz Earle products in store as you receive a free travel size, mini version of the cleanse and polish which is so handy for mini-breaks and holidays!

To be completely honest I just think it's an amazing all round product that I could not fault if you payed me to do so! Immense formula, moderately priced and most of all, noticeable results!

What is your skin saviour? Have you used Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish before?

Have a great day!

Going Bananas For Boots!

Winter Boot Wishlist!



Oh I do love a witty post title... If you didn't already gather, I'm going back to basics and featuring a good old wishlist post on the blog today! Everyone loves a wishlist, especially with Christmas just around the corner. I could literally sit here all day and make fancy collages for you all, a brilliant excuse to make use of all the amazing items I wish would magically appear in my wardrobe!

I feel like burgundy and other dark hue's are in every A/W season no matter what. Perhaps 'burgundy is the new black?'... It think not. Nothing could ever replace the simplicity yet ability to make a statement that black has, however I'd say it comes pretty close! The knee/thigh high boot is also a classic when the times comes for the leaves to depart from the branches they once grew on. I always see celebrities and bloggers looking ravishing bundled up in an oversized coat, snuggly scarf, dress and thigh high boots, and so I thought it would be rude not to tribute the effortless and easy boot in this post! Ankle boots are also a very easy way to turn a conventional and somewhat mundane outfit into a runway-worthy look, especially if they have all the bells and whistles like the top pair! A great way to sport these would be in a monochrome outfit bursting at the seams with dainty silver jewellery. This way the bold chains from the boots won't be too distracting but the delicate jewellery will help to tie everything in together, still keeping the main body of attention and focus on the boots.

What are your must have shoes for this season? Do you like any of the ones I featured?

Have a great day!

6 Days In DUBAI!


First off, I'm sorry I haven't blogged for a long while- I know it's a petty excuse but I'm struggling with lighting. You all know what I mean, it's too dark when I get home from school to take photos and turning on the lights leaves a horrible shadow behind that is so dark you can barely even see the products I'm talking about. Nonetheless I'm back and as inconsistent as ever!

Get ready... It's a long one!
