L'Oreal Causse Lipstick

I was so in need of a new lipstick so I decided to pick up this one; considering there was a 3 for 2 on all products in Superdrug today^_^ I also got my Mum 2 of the pink shades for Christmas, I would show you but just incase she reads this (which she does now & then^_^) I don't want to give it away totally! I  always treat her to new make-up products for Christmas so that won't be too much of shock to her but I'd like to keep the shades a secret! Maybe she will let me do her make-up at Christmas with her new lippys & other products & let me show you!^_^ Anyway.. Back to the subject! This lipstick is shade 501 Nude Ingenue & it is super pretty! If I ever wear lipsticks it's always really a nude colour & 99% of the time a Matte texture too but this was just too pretty to resist! It comes off a nice nude/gold shimmer colour & it's very hydrating, feels so lovely to put on. It was priced at £6.99 which isn't too bad really, L'Oreal are always trustworthy, great products so it's definitely worth the money!^_^

Body Shop Haul

Body Shop is like my all time fave place for bath/skin stuff ect.. Everyone that knows me know that I ONLY like things that smell either sweet or fruity.. So you can probably tell why I bought what I bought. Everything here smells diviiiiine! Except from the Olive one, but no doubt that will be amazing for the skin so I got it anyway. I also took advantage of a 50% off voucher I had so all of these goodies only came up to a total of £16.50!!! Yep, that's right! Usually, the body butters alone are £13, so I got a real bargain here & I cannot wait to treat myself to a candle lit bath & these delicious essences^_^ if you have the VoucherCodes app, definitely take advantage of this offer! I think it is on until the end of this week so hurry, hurry, hurry!^_^

LDN Town

London, London, London… What a beautiful city. If I could never quite manage to vacate the whole country to settle down, then London would most likely be my second choice. Every time I visit here it already feels like home. Although I'm not a fan of how busy it is in the day (I'm not a day person) I love how busy it can still be in the evening. There's always people doing something; which I love! I was here to be a tourist this time (lol) so I didn't really get the chance to notice what the people who live there get up to. But last time I visited, there were groups of people dancing & singing & all sorts.. & not even for money which makes a change; but genuinely because it's what they love doing. It was a crazy hour of the night as well, way past midnight - my kinda time! So it was so much fun to be out & involved in that kinda thing. The buildings are all beautiful as well, I could walk around for hours just looking at them, definitely my kind of place! I've not uploaded al the pictures from my visit as there's literally 100's, but the one's shown above are some of my faves. London, thank you for having me, until next time! ^_^

Christmas Fair JuicePlus+

Yesterday at my place of work (Total Fitness) we were holding a Christmas fair where people could hold stalls & what not.. So of course, I jumped to the opportunity & put up a stall for my other job (well, hobby really) JuicePlus+. For those of you who don't know, JuicePlus+ is an amazing health & well-being product with many proven benefits to it such as healthier hair skin & nails (perfect for us ladies!), improved immune system, an aid to weight loss ect.. It's an all rounder really! I've been meaning to do a post on it for awhile because I take it every single day. I usually have the Premium Capsules but I recently ran out & replaced them with the Premium Chewables < these are absolutely AMAZING if you have a sweet tooth like me as they're gummy & taste delicious! I also have the Complete Shakes before & after my gym workouts, these can be used to help with weight loss also, as well as being a great pre/post workout shake. A lot of athletes use this & a lot of males who usually take whey protein have replaced them with JuicePlus+, pretty amazing huh!? ;D I mean, who doesn't want an easier way to get all of your vital nutrients without buying loads & eating loads. These products have the nutrients of 26 different varieties of fruit & veg, so great for those who simply just don't have the time to prep all those different foods. The stall went fab & plenty of interest was in the air! It's a good job people are ordering now as last year we was totally sold out for almost 2 months from the beginning of Jan - healthy bodies in the making, yeahhhhh! ^_^

Tom Ford Color Quad

Tom Ford Color Quad in shade 03 Cocoa Mirage, what a beauty! As you probably know, if I'm going to wear any eye shadows, it's usually nudes/browns as I'm very simple. So when this was gifted to me my by my favourite MUA - Tam Ahmed, I was overwhelmed. If you're reading this Tam, thank you once again!^_^ The shadows are so velvety & beautiful to put on, even the packaging is amazing! It comes in a shiny deep brown box with gold lettering & a suede feel pouch to put the gorgeous palette in. I don't think Tom Ford could have done a better job with his presentation, presentation is EVERYTHING. Anything that is packaged with gold always makes me happy, it just always look so sleek & sophisticated, which is everything a lady loves!^_^ I am super thrilled with this palette & I can't wait to use it for a full make-up look, keep a look out beauties!^_^

Morning Fashion Read

It's been so long since I actually sat down at my table with a nice cold glass of water in the morning, reading my H&M mag. This one came in the post recently so I'm finally going to read it. I'm loving the page shown on the picture, it's definitely made me want to go crazy with the Christmas patterns this year! I'm even thinking of buying Christmas decorations for my room with yummy scented candles to really set the mood - eek! I'm such a child when it comes to this time of year, festive spirit! I remember when I was little & me, my Mum & Dad would go into the local park, chop down some little branches, spray paint them silver; topped with snow spray & cover our living room ceiling with them & hang false apples & robin birds from them. Ahhh, it was like my own little lapland in my house! Well, not quite, but it was a great effort! What I'd do to be young again^_^

YUMMY!!! I love the Christmas specials at Costa! In case you can't already tell what it was I chose to get; it was the white hot chocolate, so delicious! I'd been rushing around all day today around the Trafford Centre trying to find the perfect dress for my Christmas do. Did I succeed? Did I hell! Do I ever when it comes to shopping? The only time I  ever buy anything that I want/need is when I'm not looking for it - such a pain! Although I did find one dress in Topshop but because it's me & I have no luck, they didn't have my size & it's not on the website - greattttt! Wahhhh, hopefully I'll find one soon because it's creeping up on me quickly! When are your Christmas night out beauties? & have you had any luck with the perfect party dress? If so, please help!^_^

Tartan Night Shirt

Here it is guys! Here's my super cosey night shirt I mentioned in my previous post that I purchased today - love it! It was from Primark & priced at £7, not bad really!^_^ Had a nice night in with my Mum, Dad, best friend & of course, Samson my akita^_^ We watched X-Factor & I'm A Celeb. If any of you watched any of the shows, what did you think? I'm kinda glad Hannah went from X-Factor, she could sing but I didn't really enjoy listening to her, did you? I'm also growing to like Joey Essex. I hate the program he's from but in I'm A Celeb; I'm finding him quite funny, even if he is seriously stupid! Ha! What did you guys get up to this evening? Hope you had a good night!^_^

Dunham Park

Dunham Park, my favourite place to go for a walk. Especially at this time of the year with all the winter leaves falling about the place. I love how all the deers are wandering around as well & they actually don't mind you going pretty close to them. Deers are one of my favourite animals, probably from watching Bambi over & over again when I was little… Maybe even a couple of times now still? Haha^_^ The picture I have taken of one looks a lot more further away than I actually was - stupid camera. I'm even more in the mood for Christmas now! Visiting the markets last night, walk around Dunham today - eeek!!

Christmas Markets

Yay, the German markets have arrived! This is my favourite time of year, everyone is always so cheerful & in the festive feeling, love it! Unfortunately, we got to the markets a tad too late this time & most of them were closed or were closing so there wasn't much to see. Don't worry though, one will be going again shortly!^_^ I'm just glad I got chance to grab me a hot chocolate & some lovely sweet treats, yummy!! Excited to be visiting them again soon, earlier this time!^_^
