What I Got For Christmas 2013

Hello everyone, I hope you've all enjoyed some fabulous festive days and are getting ready for the new year. I'm in such a good mood after Christmas (well I always am) I really love spending time with my family and I just love them more and more everyday.

Before I show you all what I got for Christmas this year, I just wanted to say that this post is in no way trying to brag or boast about what I got because I am honestly not like that at all. I don't even know if the amount of presents I got is impressive or not and to be honest that doesn't matter. I just wanted to show you all what had brought as a beauty and fashion lover, nothing else. I am extremely grateful and appreciative of all these presents, and as the saying goes 'its the thought that matters' It's also supposed to be a haul kinda post too....

Right shall we begin?

Baking: Christmas Biscuits

Last year, I showed you all how to make Christmas cupcakes and this year I thought I'd show you all how I made Christmas biscuits. It's not a proper step-by-step guide which I apologise for, I got way too excited and then forgot to take some pictures. But if you do have any questions then I'd happily reply to any comments below!

How To: Have A Kissable Christmas || Winter Lip Care

Gosh what a long title! Hello! I decided that from now on, every December there will be only Christmas related posts. I have also just finished my mock exams woooo! That's why there has been a lack of posts this December but I was so keen and excited just to bombard you with posts! I thought it would be a good idea to show you lip products that I use throughout December and winter time to ensure I have a kissable Christmas! The weather is beginning to get more and more cold (wah!) We begin to put on our snuggly scarves and hats but always seem to neglect our lips. And our lips are at their worst around this time, as they are exposed to harsh cold and dry winds therefore loosing moisture which as result leads to them being cracked and sore. And we can't let that happen! Party season is approaching and therefore we need to look as glamorous as we can!
Now I know that there are many guides or 'recipes' for making lip care products but I don't really have the time to sit and do that (especially if the results are unsuccessful) So I will just recommend my top products. However, there are obviously some key things which I will tell you now that you need to make sure you do. These are to:

- Drink plenty of water.

- Take vitamins.
- Do not pick or scratch your lips.

And trust me they do make a massive difference! To go with these factors you need a range of lip products which will also help such as exfoliating, moisturising and hydrating lip products. So I have created a short list of my favourite, and many other bloggers', lip care products which are perfect for this season.

Outift Inspirations: Christmas

I thought I'd get back to my fashion roots as I have been posting quite a lot of beauty posts recently and I need to balance them well together. So this December I am only posting Christmas related posts/tags therefore (inspired by my Polyvore) I thought of showing you these different pieces of clothing/shoes/accessories I have put together myself which would be perfect for any Christmas events you attend. These all are ranging from dark vampy colours to pastels.

Lush Haul: Festive Christmas Collection 2013

It's December!! Yay!! I have my advent calender at the ready and I am really looking forward to what this month is going to bring (hopefully some amazing blog posts) All December posts will forever be about Christmas and what better thing to talk about than Lush! I'm pretty sure I have made my feeling very clear towards Lush. I love Lush more than words can understand, from the actual products sold to the staff friendliness. And the best time to go to Lush is at Christmas time. This is because their Christmas collections are super cute and adorable, leaving a large hole in your pocket. A tradition of mine is to wait until December to go to Lush or any other beauty shops to buy their Christmas themed products, but I couldn't resist as I saw so many other bloggers posting about them which made me so jealous! (I was also panicking that they would run out, but obviously not!) So I went to Lush with my sister last week as we had a half day, result! We went to Westfield shopping centre and you could smell the Lush shop from a mile away! As I entered, I just fell in love with everything and I am literally so poor right now because I just went crazy! My sister was just looking at me saying 'Are you really going to spend 40 pounds on some bath products?' Yes Paige... I really am....

Tag: What's Inside My Bag?

I thought I'd do an extremely popular tag today which is.. What's Inside My Bag? A lot of bloggers who I know and follow have done this post before and I thought why not try it myself, I mean snooping in someone else's bag is pretty fun.

How To: Deep Clean Make-Up Brushes

I never really thought I'd be the type of person to care so much about my beauty/make-up products but when you're paying over 20 pounds just for 4 make-up brushes, you really need to! Because of this, I need to keep them in top condition as I want them to last a long time. I also realised as well that it shouldn't only be for the money I spent but for actually cleaning them. I mean I didn't realise that the bacteria is always going back on my face as I use the same brush time and time again, it might even be why my skin is so bad. Therefore, I thought today I would do a post about deep cleaning your make-up brushes. I'm not saying I'm some sort of beauty expert now, I just thought that I would put it out there since half of us (including me up to now) didn't even realise how important it is.

Top Picks: Autumn Lipsticks

Two posts in a weekend, luck you! Anyway! I've always enjoyed trying new makeup looks since my love for makeup and beauty has really increased due to blogging. Because of this, I love trying out new looks, switching from light, pale to bold and dark and what really changes this is the colour of your lipstick. Today I wanted to show you the range of lip products I have chosen which I think are perfect for this season. These essentially are dark vampy shades and softer nudes.

Product Review: Rimmel Sunshimmer Maxi Instant Tan (Pump)

Happy October everyone! From looking at my poll vote which I am doing on my blog, product reviews are the most popular so I am obviously going to do a product review! In year 8/9 I think most girls go through the phrase of over tanning and just always smelling of fake tan, and for me I was obsessed  Because of this, it means that I have a wide knowledge on all that is fake tan as I have tried out so many.. the bad and the good... And before I start you need to remember to exfoliate and shave your legs before you fake tan or it will end up very badly!!

Wishlist: September 2013

September is nearly ending but I thought I'd show you all the stuff I would like for this month. So autumn is coming up so the colours I am liking are quite dull browns and creams as well as pastels too. I am also liking coats right now especially fur, layers are essential this season to keep warm and snuggle!

Shopping Haul: Summer Holiday Essentials

Happy Sunday everyone! Just thought I would share some pictures of the stuff I brought today. So obviously I went shopping today. I went with my two friends Joanna and Bethan, it was a good day and we pigged out at Frankie & Bennys! I am going to Barcelona with my sister and my dad next Friday which I am so so so excited for! We 99.9% of the time go to a Spanish speaking country on holiday because we all just love the culture of spanish stuff, the history, the art and the football haha! That is the reason why I went shopping since I hope to do an OOTD everyday while I am out there (and yes we have made sure our hotel has wifi, judge us!) I love summer purely because of the clothes, most of the clothes are bright and bold with prints which I love so much.  I brought quite a bit to be honest, I am usually more reserved in what I buy, especially when I go out with friends since I have a very different fashion sense, but because I have saved money from my birthday, (which I knew I forgot to blog about sorry!!) I ended up just going over the top and spending it all so I am basically now poor.
Back to business! Check out what I brought, and please comment if you liked them or didn't (hopefully not) or want to know prices etc! I would happily reply.
