Fall Fashion Ideas 2016

It's that time of year to pull out your scarves, add layers and make sure you've got a fluffy pair of socks inside of your boots - unless you live in LA of course.

I wanted to share with you some of my favourite style accessories for Fall 2016, and what you will see my rocking. As always, Fall is about layering pieces together and adding texture as well as practicality to keep you warm. Don't be afraid to add extra pops of colour into an outfit, or sometimes stick to a neutral colour palette.

What do you think of my fall fashion choices. Let me know what you will be wearing on the pavement catwalk!


My Pinterest Obsession | Coming Clean

 I know I'm not the first, and I won't be the last, to express my love for Pinterest. I went through a phase of not really using it, but since my catch up with Emily from British Beauty Addict, my obsession has been drawn back in.

I could sit for hours repinning the most beautiful makeup looks, outfits I lose after and quotes that just speak to me - plus all of the cute little animals that are on there, seriously you can lose hours on this app.

I also find that it gives me a lot of inspiration for my next makeup look, or how I want to style my house when I finally take that plunge.
You can see a few of my boards here - but to see what I love to pin check out my Pinterest here.

Tweezerman Christmas Collection

I received a lovely little package from Tweezerman this week, as a brand ambassador they send me some of their new items to use or to give to friends and family, but they do not ask for blog posts or videos in return, I do this just for my love of the brand and the tools themselves. 
It's needless to say I was excited when I opened this up, as their packages usually show up unexpectedly so it's a bit like Christmas when I open them and get a nice surprise!
The first, and most beautiful product that caught my attention was the Rose Gold Love Story gift set. In this are their classic tweezers (and these are hand filed), their pro curl eyelash curlers and a gorgeous makeup bag - of course these are all rose gold, which is every girls dream at the moment. Coming in at £34.95, it's the perfect gift (even if it is to yourself!!).

You can also see the All That Glitters Holiday Set, which is gold glittered tweezers (again hand filed precision tips) with the red case. They have a real Lou Boutin feel to them, as peeking inside the tweezers is a 'red sole' that oozes glamour! And who doesn't love a bit of glitter? With the case I find that these are a lot harder to lose or misplace - as long as you remember to put them back in the case! These cost £29.95, but will give you years of perfectly shaped brows.
Finally, we have the Merry & Bright Mirror and Mini Slant Duo. I already have one of these in a different style, and I can't tell you how many times I've used it, it's been that many times. The mirror is a 10x magnifying mirror, so you can really see any hair that you need to pluck out. The one thing I do find is that I need to put a light behind it to really show the hairs - cue your iPhone torch, but once you get going you will be removing hairs you didn't even know you had! At £25.00 I'd say it's well worth the price.

I know you will probably be reading this and questioning the price of these, especially compared to other tweezers on the market, however I know first hand that these are the best out there. They really grab the hair and pull it out from the root, whereas I've found that cheaper brands tend to either cut the hair or not even grip it at all. I'd say splurge on tweezers, they will last you a lot longer and will remove the hairs right from the root in one pluck!

What do you think of their Christmas/Winter collection? Are you in love with Rose Gold as well?

Jewellerybox.co.uk | Real Jewellery, Nice Prices

I'm not a massive jewellery wearer, but when I do my ears and skin is very fussy. If it's not real silver/gold then my skin will freak out and break out. For this reason, I tend not to wear jewellery as I don't want to spend a lot of money on jewellery, as I see it as a fashion statement that you can change as often as you like, and match it to different outfits.

Recently Jewellerybox.co.uk reached out to me and asked if they could send me some of their jewellery in exchange for a mention, however, they are not paying me for this post and they have not asked me to write a blog post on their jewellery.

I had so much fun searching through their website and seeing all of the different jewellery they have available. All of their jewellery is made out of real silver or gold, or at least plated in the real thing. However, the prices are not extortionate. The amazing part is that I feel like I found something I wasn't looking for with this company.

I wanted to share the pieces I have with you:

Cat Earrings £5.95
Star Necklace £35.00

What's your favourite colour jewellery to wear, silver, gold or rose gold? I'd love to know! 

Beauty Advent Calendars 2016

Beauty Advent Calendars are something I lust over every year, but am yet to experience the joy of physically having one. I'm sure at some point I will spoil myself with one, or I will put it on my wish list as a pre-Christmas present.

Not only do these advent calendars allow you to have a little beauty treat each day up until Christmas, but it's something you can enjoy opening whilst you eat your chocolate advent calendar too because lets be real, that's a tradition that can't isn't going anywhere.

I've put together a list of the beauty advent calendars that I would love to get my hands on:

The Body Shop - £60.00
Containing 24 of The Body Shop's top selling products, you can receive a surprise of makeup, skincare or bathing goodies, all smelling as gorgeous as can be! You will find yourself having 24 pampered days up to Christmas with this treat.

The Body Shop haven't just created this advent calendar, they also made two more which are more expensive (£80 and £99). However, whichever one you decide to purchase I'm certain you won't be disappointed.

Charlotte Tilbury - £150.00
Talk about luxury, this Charlotte Tilbury calendar contains 12 days worth of treats, with 7 mini sized products and 5 full sized products. It does come at a higher price than the rest on this list, but the quality and the beauty of this calendar, mixed with the amazing assortment of products has meant that you are getting what you pay for. 

Definitely on the splurge list though!

As one of the best drugstore brands that exist, I'm not surprised that Makeup Revolution were on the ball enough to create a beauty advent calendar.

With 24 days, and a mixture of mini and full sized products, you're bound to pick up their cult favourites. And a full sized eyeshadow palette?! Enough to sell me on this one already!

Ciate - £50.00

This is a must have gift for those OBSESSED with nails, what could be better than opening a new nail polish from Ciate every day?! In this box they have 24 nail polishes, including four new shades that haven't been released yet. Plus, doesn't the packaging just look Christmassy!

Lush - £49.95
This calendar is packed with some of the Christmas favourites - Snow Angel and Candy Mountain to name two. With 12 days of Christmas inside this calendar, you really will wake up with Christmas excitement every morning!

House of Fraser - £25.00 (NOW £20.00 online!)
I think this advent calendar might be the winner when it comes to packaging - just look how gorgeous it is! It features House Of Fraser's own brand 'Colour Couture', which I haven't tried before, but what a better way to try them out than with an exciting calendar to open each day for 24 days.

Feel Unique - £30.00
True to Feel Unique fashion, this calendar contains a mixture of brands that you can get your hands on. It's nice as it allows you to experience products that you might not normally purchase, or have even heard of! And at £30, you're really getting bang for your buck.

NYX - £60.00

I'll be honest, I don't think there is one makeup product that I have disliked by NYX. The fact that you can get a mix of their products in this 24 day advent calendar means that we can be beauty obsessed every day until Christmas!

Sanctuary - £25.00

Sanctuary, in my opinion, makes the best spa products available on the high street. They appeal to a variety of ages, and they have a mix of scents which really helps the brands diversity. Also, who doesn't want an advent calendar that gives them a reason to relax all the way up until Christmas?!

M&S - £35.00 (when you spend £35.00 on clothes)

So I've noticed that this advent calendar is already out of stock - I'm just as sad about this as you! However, look at the variety of brands that this contains?! I like to think I've saved the best until last here. I am a HUGE fan of the M&S Beauty section, and you can most likely find me here every pay day so the fact that I could open a product from this section every day (including Christmas day!!) makes me very excited!!

What are your thoughts on beauty advent calendars? Let me know which one is your favourite?
