Stockings and Sacks – Christmas Wishlist!

Hello out there, lets get straight into this one shall we? Christmas is round the corner and I thought what better way to make a start on the holiday season than with that of a little bloggy post here. All we get asked as it draws closer to the annual Saint Nick visit, is what we’re wanting for Christmas and I’m sure I’m not the only one who actually feels pretty darn awkward about the whole situation. Maybe it is me, who knows – but I know for a fact that I always feel mega cheeky when this question is thrust upon myself. I don’t know what budget a person has, or in terms of my Mom – how many presents she’s wanting to spoil me with this year.

Would You Rather – Cosmetics Tag

Yes, I’m here again with another cosmetics tag, what can I say, I enjoy them! I were having a peek through El’s blog (ElButlerxox) and came across this little joy which I thought would be fun to do. Whilst on the subject of the lovely El, I recently did a Blogger Interview with her to celebrate the first year of her blogging. This were posted on Friday, along with the answers from some other lovely ladies, and you can view that here!

I didn’t burst into flames!!!

Today’s post I guess is a little more of an account of a recent event I attended and an appreciation of relationships with the people I care about. Two greatly cherished friends of mine got married at the weekend, two of the most kind-hearted, loving, respectful, funny and intelligent people I have had the pleasure of meeting. I can’t imagine anybody better suited for either of them and I’m so incredibly elated for both Mark and Nadia. Whilst on this note, I’d like to take the opportunity again to congratulate them and wish them every happiness in their lives together. You are both amazing, beautiful people and deserve the very best of everything. Thank you for inviting me to share your special day, I had an absolute blast and will always have my own very fond memories to keep. You both looked absolutely sensational and I felt very proud indeed, you even managed to get both myself and Aimee crying – which neither of us expected in a million years!

Cuddly Critter Care

If you’re a frequent visitor here then you’ll know that I published a post on rabbit care in October (if not, you can find that post here: ‘Hop To It!‘, it were proven helpful to some therefore thought it a good idea to publish another, this time for a smaller cuddly critter. Whilst hamsters are considerably easier to care for than rabbits, there are maybe still some things that people are unsure of regarding the correct care for their small friends. I have vast experience of owning both Syrian and Russian Dwarf breeds therefore feel I’m able to give adequate tips and advice where appropriate on this matter.

10 Most Worn Cosmetics Tag

So I’ve been delving through the archives of many a beauty blogger and recently re-stumbled upon a cosmetics tag from the lovely Louise – Sprinkle Of Glitter! To some, a tag may seem like an easy way out of a ‘proper’ blog post, however many can be both enjoyable and informative and I feel this short but sweet piece also doubles up as a pretty nifty review of sorts taking into consideration these are my ‘most used’ cosmetic items of choice. Without further ado, lets commence!

Ghastly Ghosts and Gory Ghouls!

As we all are aware I’m sure, it were Halloween on Saturday! I felt it only right that I commemorate the occasion with a blog post. I hope you had an amazing and safe night, wherever your evening took you. This year is the first that I actually decided to do something with my make-up therefore were feeling rather excited about the fact. I’ll pop some pictures below, I went to my friend’s Halloween party at her house and all in attendance had a fantastic evening. I did re-use a costume that I’ve had for a few years now (dead schoolgirl), hence why I absolutely NEEDED to do something different make-up wise, I found inspiration in a Shannon Harris tutorial, ( deciding to go for the stitched up mouth look! I felt that I wouldn’t look quite as dead as I wanted therefore also did some extra contouring.

The Two C’s Haul: Cosmetics & Clothing!

There’s barely anything to really say here, I went on a spontaneous shopping trip today with a good friend, I had decided that I wanted to pick up a few little bits for Halloween but of course, I just HAD to spend more, failing to get everything that I went out for primarily. I’m rather excited about the purchases I made, therefore without further ado, let’s begin..

Don’t Fall out with Autumn!

As I’m sure everyone is aware by now (if not, then you’re probably arriving late for work and appointments tehehe) the clocks have changed, meaning that us Brits have gone back to GMT from BST, reminding us of the fact that we’re back in the Autumn and Winter months. Days will grow colder and shorter and for many their moods will wilt along with nature. It doesn’t have to be seen as a negative, however! With Autumn comes some fantastic annual holidays such as Halloween and Christmas, full of love, togetherness and cheer. Lots of good grub, crackling fires, seasonal drinks, conkers, crunchy leaves and a different view of the enchanting nature around us are now in abundance. It can be easy to want to stay wrapped up in our covers and let the world pass by around us but if you get nicely wrapped up, then the world outside of our bedroom is just as enticing. During an often mundane Monday I have today been embarking on a few simple yet uplifting projects to kickstart my motivation and brighten my surroundings.

Outfit and Make-Up of the Day!

Yesterday evening (Wednesday) I had a wonderful time going for a carvery meal in celebration of a friend’s Birthday. We all went to the Toby Carvery in Horsforth which has delightful food and a lovely atmosphere complete with friendly and attentive staff. I have already been receiving questions on various social media profiles asking where I got different things I were wearing or asking what make-up I used, therefore I thought I’d make a nice little post about just that!
