Surprise, surprise

Extreme Length Mascara 1

You know when you try a product and have rock bottom expectations? When I unwrapped a No 7 gift set at Christmas, I have to hold my hands up and say snobbery got the better of me and I was not expecting miracles.

Where have I been?

Okay, so this feels weird. It has been almost a year since I last sat down and poured my thoughts into a blog post. Why?

CHANEL Perfection Lumiére Velvet Smooth Foundation

ChanelI have officially made it in life and own an item of Chanel makeup. I have to admit that I’ve been obsessed with Chanel since I was about 13 and had just started high school. I remember my teacher wore the Coco Mademoiselle perfume and she was so glamourous… I wanted that for myself! So it only seems fit that 8 years later (wtf how old even am I?!) I treated myself to my first item of Chanel makeup, and this is not what I expected it to be!

You’ll just have to imagine that this post is on time… I’ve really enjoyed being mostly ‘offline’ during the holidays, but now I’m back and ready to blog!

I have been so unbelievably spoilt this year, which is weird because I’m sure as you get older Christmas is supposed to fizzle out. Of course, a good proportion of the gifts I unwrapped were to be added to my beauty cupboard, and here’s what I got treated to this year… Continue reading “My Festive Beauty Bundle”

Christmas Gift Guide 2014

I love this time of year; when you get to look back and pick out all of your favourite indulgences that you think would make someone’s Christmas just that little bit more special. I love Christmas, and definitely think it’s all about treating someone special to something they wouldn’t normally treat themselves to… So without further ado, here you have it, my top picks for this year’s stockings.
