Where are They Now?

Leave a Comment
Like every blogger on the planet, last year I wrote a post featuring my '2013 Beauty Favourites' so as we approach the new year I thought I'd look back and see whether these have still been firm favourites throughout 2014 of whether I've left them in the past. 
Seche Vite Topcoat // This is still the only top coat I use as I love the finish it gives my nails - a gel like gloss without the trip to the salon!  

Maybelline Gel Eyeliner // Don't get me wrong, I had a lot of love for this product towards the end of 2013 but since then I've rarely used it throughout 2014 (in fact, its been that long, its probably dried up and read for the bin!) I have since moved on to using eyeliner pens which I find much easier to use. 

Collection Concealer // What more can I say than LOVE LOVE LOVE! Like 2013, this is still a firm favourite of mine providing long-lasting coverage for less than £5. 

Dainty Doll Blusher (You Are My Sunshine) // As a blush lover, this one has unfortunately become lost in my stash as I had completely forgot about it until looking back over my 2013 favourites. Don't get me wrong it still is a beautiful blush - especially for summer - so hopefully I'll get some use out of it next summer. 

Classics Nail Polish Remover // Like the topcoat, this is the only remover I use - it removes polish in a couple of minutes and it's cheap so what's not to love.

John Frieda Full Repair Conditioner // I'm not really fussy with my hair conditioner so fluctuate throughout the year however, I have still used about 3 bottles of this throughout the year as I love how smooth it makes my hair feel. 

Real Techniques Buffing Brush // RT brushes are still my favourites and the ones I reach for on a daily basis. Unlike in 2013, when I used this to apply my foundation I now only use it to buff everything in once I've applied my base. 

Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Crayon (Peach on the Beach) // I still love the colour of this lip crayon but since getting my hands on the L'Oreal Color Riche Collection these have become my go-to lipsticks meaning this one has been left in the draw for sometime. 

Alpha-H Clear Skin Blemish Control Gel // I loved this product throughout 2013 but once it ran out I never repurchased and have instead moved on to The Body Shop which has helped my skin just as much as this did. 

Pretty Perfect Nail Drying Spray // This product is amazing however, I had to stop using it as I used to get quite bad headaches.

Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette // I still adore this palette and even went out and purchased my favourite shades from it in single form. 

Have any of your 2013 favourites remained favourites throughout 2014?

Christmas Tag...

6 comments

Christmas is without a doubt my favourite time of year - no matter how old I get, I still get super excited so when I came across this tag I just had too do it myself! 

Q1 // What's your favourite Christmas movie (s)?
I'm glad this question didn't just ask for 1 or I wouldn't be able to choose! Some of my favourites include Miracle on 34th Street, Elf, Home Alone (but only the first 2!), National Lampoons Christmas Vacation and Santa Claus: The Movie (this one was the one that always used to make me sooo excited!)

Q2 // Do you open your presents on Christmas morning or Christmas evening?
When I was a child, I would have all of my presents in the morning; however, since getting older I now have my presents off my parents at home in the morning and then mid afternoon/night time we go to my nanas for dinner and more presents. Although she still comes to our house in the morning as she only lives a few doors away. 

Q3 // Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?
I used to love the lead up to Christmas whilst at school; everyone would be getting excited and the school itself would be winding down ready for the break. My last year at sixth form, last year, was one of my favourite especially on Christmas Jumper Day when everyone came in sporting the cheesiest, christmassy jumper they could find. 

Q4 // What's your favourite festive food?
I don't actually like Christmas dinner (I can imagine many of you thinking WHAT?!) so I have to say my favourite festive food is the special tins of biscuits you can buy. Although I do love my Nana's homemade yorkshire puddings!

Q5 // What's been your favourite Christmas gift?
This is very hard as I've always received amazing gifts. One of my favourites as a child was my kitchen set with a microwave and everything! It literally came with about 100 pieces of fake food. I used to love pretend play when I was little so this was definitely one of my favourites as a child. However, as I've got older, my favourite Christmas gift has got to be my iPad Air which I got last year; I use it all the time and honestly can't remember what I did without it. 

Q6 // What's your favourite Christmas scent?
Cranberry! I love it. It's a scent that's always filled my house around Christmas time so it makes me feel very christmassy. 

Q7 // Do you have a Christmas Eve tradition?
Probaly pestering my mam about letting me open a present the night before!

Q8 // What tops your tree?
Nothing fancy, just a traditional star which matches the colour scheme of the tree.

Q9 // As a child, what was the one crazy, extravagant gift you wanted but never got?
I was never really one of those kids who asked for something crazy at Christmas and I don't want to sound spoilt but I honestly can't remember a Christmas where I didn't receive the gift I'd asked for. 

Q10 // What do you think is the best part of Christmas?
Spending the day with my family has got to be my favourite part of Christmas Day but in the lead up to Christmas its going to the Christmas markets and snuggling on the couch with the Christmas tree lights on, a candle burning watching a Christmas film.

And on that note, that's exactly what I'm going to do now!
If you would like to complete this tag go-ahead and let me know down below if you do as I'd love to know how other people spend their Christmas.

Merry Christmas!

Christmas Jumpers...

Leave a Comment
First of all, apologies for the lack of posts over the last couple of weeks but I have been swamped with uni work! 

As it is now December (OMG!) my posts are going to get a little bit more christmassy in the run up to Christmas so what better way to start than with a selection of some super cheesy chic Christmas Jumpers on the market this year.

 And if you want something really christmassy and out there, Primark is obviously the place to go.

Have you already got your Christmas jumper ready for 'Christmas Jumper Day 2014' taking place on Friday 12th December?
