Recently #2 ❤

Last night - went to see the hobbit // Red lips // The cosiest // Oops // Cranberry green tea // Excited // In bed // South Park appreciation // Christmas top // Tree // Shopping in Cardiff // Mick left me to play sims // Candle lit // Yummy // New coat // New curtains // Diptyque freebie // Jan exams are taking over // Cute little cafe // Walking with the girls

I went to see The Hobbit last night with Mick and it was really good. I thought it may have dragged but I really enjoyed it despite the fidgety couple sitting next to us. 
I've just finished sixth form for Christmas so my days have been spent doing nothing or doing some christmas shopping. I've been so organised this year and I had everyone's presents bought and wrapped a week early, yay for being organised. I actually can't believe it's christmas eve tomorrow, I am so excited to spend christmas with my family, to eat nice food and give everyone my gifts. I also can't wait to receive some LUSH goodies from my parents as its become a little bit of a tradition in my house. 
I also bought these really cute curtains from Ikea, although they are massive (they're even too big for my patio doors) I think I've managed to make them look ok. 
At the start of the month I went on a weekend trip with my friends to a country park. We had to go to do a drug course from school but we stayed in a lovely place with the cutest little cafe. I kind of miss it now.

How are you spending your Christmas day? 
Oh and Merry Christmas everyone!!

p.s the winner of my Burt's Bees giveaway was Catherine from Lady Liquor Vintage

✿ Review; Vichy Pureté Thermale Soothing Cleansing Milk ✿

I bought this product whilst were having 15% off all their french skincare brands (and still are!). I was having lots of trouble with congested and dry skin so I was really interested in trying a cleansing milk and taking my skincare back to basics. 
It was such a pleasure ordering from! The package came within 2 days and they even included a perfume sample and a nail file with my order. I will definitely be ordering from there again as it was such a nice experience.

I love how simple this product is. It does what it says on the tin and is such a pleasure to use. I was expecting it to be of a thinner consistency being a cleansing 'milk' but it's more of a lotion. I massage it all over my face to remove my make-up in the evening and then splash off. It is the best product I have used for removing make-up. It gets rid of everything and I can almost feel the make-up dissolving as I massage the product in. Despite getting rid of ever scrap of make-up it leaves my skin nourished and not feeling tight or stripped. It has a lovely but not too strong scent and is such an easy product to use.
I would definitely re-purchase this product as it is completely worth the money and is such a pleasure to use!
You can buy this product here with 15% off.

Have you tried this? What's your favourite product from Vichy?

❅ Christmas Gift Guide // For the Beauty Lover ❅

I thought I would do a gift guide post dedicated to girls who love all things beauty. I know I would looove everything on this list, as a beauty lover myself, I thought these items would be perfect to give to any fan of all things beauty.

The NEOM candle is on my own Christmas list as I've always wanted to try them. This travel sized one for just £15 is a great way to try the candle's out without having to spend the full £30/£40 for the full size. On Cult Beauty they have a great variety of scents, each dedicated relieving stress or helping you feel refreshed. These candle's are a lovely luxurious treat any beauty fan would adore. 

I have also been lusting after some Aromatherapy Associates Oil's so the Perfect Partners gift set is again a lovely way of trying them out without having to part with too much money. They look so luxurious and have a lot of hype surrounding them. These are great for any beauty lover who love to pamper themselves.
I would absolutely loove the YSL gift set. I've tried their mascara already and it is pretty darn good. Every beauty lover would know of the Touche Eclat, being a cult product I'm sure anyone would love to give this a try. I love the packaging too.

I could of included a million more gift set's in this post but I couldn't fit them all in. Great sites for beauty gifts are,, and!

I hope this post was a helpful one and I hope you enjoyed reading!
What beauty gift sets have you been lusting over recently?
