OOTD #2 A Christmas Feel

 Last night myself and my family spent the evening with a few of our friends who live round the corner; it was a really fun night and I got the chance to take a couple of pictures before we went so I could show you what I was wearing. I received the dress for Christmas from my parents and I really love how it looks on me and I think it suits my figure; it is from Topshop and you can find the black one here (I unfortunately couldn’t find the actual one I am wearing online which is a plumy, purple colour). I paired this dress with black tights from Primark and my black suede Chelsea boots from River Island. I did not pair any jewellery with this outfit as I wanted it to look simple however if I was going to a party or somewhere other than a friend’s house I would of worn my cross ring and worn black heels.

The Christmas Tag!

Image from Tumblr
I keep seeing this tag floating around so thought it was my turn to do it
1.   What is your favourite thing about Christmas?
My favourite thing about Christmas is definitely spending time with my family. I also love choosing and buying gifts for all of the important people in my life such as friends and family; I try to put a lot of thought and effort into my gifts so the person receiving will love it.
2.   What is your favourite makeup look for the festive season?
I love getting ready and doing my makeup around the Christmas period as well as on Christmas day. I love to wear a glittery eye look with a bold red lip.
3.   Real of fake tree?
We usually have a real tree at Christmas time especially if we have visitors (just like we will this year) however if we are spending Christmas with family away from home, we have our artificial tree which is just as nice as a real tree (minus the lovely pine scent)
4.   Giving or receiving presents?
I love giving presents and seeing peoples faces as they open them however I cant lie.. I do love receiving them too :)
5. Do you open your presents in the morning or evening?
I open my gifts from my parents and vice versa on Christmas morning and then we open gifts from my other family such as aunties and uncles after our Christmas meal at lunch.
6. Handmade or bought Christmas cards?
Both! I like to be creative and make Christmas cards for my parents however usually just go for the bought ones which are equally as nice I think
7. What is your favourite Christmas film?
I haven’t watched that many Christmas films however I would have to say the classic Elf or the Grinch would be my favourite
8. What is your favourite Christmas food!
As like many other people, I really look forward to the Christmas dinner (especially when my mum makes it) however I also love eating the many tubs of chocolate we receive on the day.
I tag Honestly Tay and LauraPayne17 and anyone else who would like to do it!

 I already have a couple of W7 nail polishes however wanted more to add to my collection so around a month ago I picked this one up as I thought it was a perfect autumnal/Christmassy colour.

In different lights, it can look a sparkly black, pink, blue or green colour; sometimes when wearing it the light catches my nails in a certain way and the polish has a galaxy/space feel to it which as you may know, at the moment, is high on trend.
I would love to add more of these polishes to my collection as they have a variety of colours with a few special gems like this hidden amongst them. Unfortunately I do not live near a discount makeup shop where these are usually found however if you are looking to buy them in bulk; they can be found in TK Maxx.

November Favourites

I have rediscovered quite a few products this month so thought I would do my first monthly favourites post. I will try my best to post them every month however if I don’t please don’t hold a grudge against me :)
The first product or products I have been loving this month are two nail polishes; the Nails Inc Nail Polish in Tate, and the Barry M Nail Paint in 351 Yellow Topaz Glitter. Both of these nail polishes are autumnal/Christmassy colours which is one of the reasons I have been wearing them; they also look lovely separate as well as worn together. Overall I would give these 4/5
The next product I have loved this month is the Covergirl Lash Blast Volume Waterproof Mascara in ‘very black’. I picked this mascara up in the summer when I went to America and have been using it ever since; it creates long full lashes which I usually go for. I would give this mascara 5/5 and cannot wait to pick a couple more up when I go to San Francisco in February.
I have just started using the Soap and Glory hand food again this month as it’s starting to get colder meaning my hands have been getting dryer. This hand cream is the best I have ever tried; it keeps my hands moisturised for hours after I have applied it! I recommend this hand cream and give it 5/5
The last two products I have been loving are from Lush; I used to have quite a big obsession with Lush however recently haven’t been using their products until this month! First, the Breath of Fresh Air Skin Toner; this toner is great for taking off face makeup and gives a refreshing feel to my skin. It smells ‘Lush’ with a clean but fragranced scent. The next product is the Vanilla Dee-Lite Body Lotion; again this product is great for the dry skin that comes with winter! It smells amazing and the scent lingers on my skin for the rest of the day! I give both of these products 4/5
If anyone would like separate, more in detail reviews on any of the products, just comment down below and I will try my best to do them for you :)

 I haven’t used this nail polish for a while as its quite an autumnal/wintery colour however I thought I would wear it again as I remembered how much I loved wearing it last Christmas! I have a few of the Lasting Fix Nail Polishes by 17 as they do what they say on the label – don’t chip for about 5 days which for me is pretty impressive; also for the inexpensive price of £2.99 you can’t go wrong! The one I’m wearing today is in the colour Smoke Signal; it is a mattish dark gunmetal grey colour!

You can purchase the nail polish here, also at the moment it is on offer for £2

I Wish I Had A Case..

I dropped my IPhone this morning onto my bathroom floor, and unlike many times that I have accidently done it before, this time the screen unfortunately decided to shatter. Now it didn’t shatter in just the corner, it shattered from the bottom right hand corner throughout the screen; fortunately I can still use it however I am a bit weary as I don’t want to get glass into my hand.

Now what inspired me to do this post, was that if I had of had my case on my phone, it probably wouldn’t have shattered when I dropped it. I do have a few phone cases, however like to change them around so that’s why I didn’t have one on at the time; I thought I would show you a few favourite phone cases I have had my eye on recently! Also, carrying on with the Christmas related posts, phone cases are great gifts to give to parents, friends, girlfriends and boyfriends etc.

The cases I’m about to show you, range from low prices to higher prices however depending on how much you like the case or how much you want to pay for it but here is just a selection of the types I like.
Galaxy iPhone Case - £36.25 - (Zazzle)
Tiger Diamante iPhone Case - £15.00 (River Island)
Sunset Aztec Pattern iPhone Case - £33.85 (Zazzle)
Mini Dot iPhone Case - £24.95 (Cath Kidston)
Moonshine Print iPhone Case - £8 (Topshop)
Black Vintage Retro Music Player - £1.85 (Ebay)
Thankyou for reading, hope you all have a lovely Christmas! :)
