Dear Santa... My 2012 Christmas Wish List


Tis The Season To Be Jolly :D 
I'm soooo excited for christmas 
It is by far my favourite time of year, eating and drinking way to much 
Time off work (WOOHOO)
and presents :)
 I love giving presents but of course everyone likes to receive some presents as well.
So I thought I would compile a little list of things I would LOVE to wake up to on Christmas morning


1. Soap & Glory The Best of All 
£60

I absolutely love Soap & Glory products and have used quite a lot of them but have never had a big massive set like this before! The bag it all comes in would be so handy to store my ever growing collection of beauty products in as well!

2. Liz Earle Limited Edition Cleanse and Polish
£19.75

I have been wanting to try Cleanse and Polish for so long now but have been using the cheaper Superdrug version as I didn't really want to splash out incase I didn't like it, but I would love to receive it as a gift! 
I like the festive packaging as well.

3. Ice Phone 
£29.95

I seen this while I was watching Take Me Out on Saturday and thought it was so cool!
You basically sit your iphone in the cradle (It is compatible with most smart phones though)
and attach the retro ear piece to your handset.
I think this would look so good in my room. 

4. Vivienne Westwood Reverse Heart Pendant
£120

I have wanted a Vivienne Westwood necklace ever since I seen Caroline Flack wearing one a few years ago. When I saw this one I loved it straight away.
It would go so well with my rose gold Michael Kors watch 

5. Mark Hill Animal Print Hair dryer 
£29.99

If you know me you will know that I am obsessed with leopard print
So this looks amazing! 
My mum and I are sharing a hair dryer right now and it is definitely on its last legs so I really hope I get this from Santa 

6. Real Techniques Core Collection 
£21.99

I am slowly but surely building my makeup brush collection
and this would make the perfect addition. 
I already have the stippling brush and have used it constantly since I got it and I have heard nothing but great things about the rest of the Real Techniques brushes. 


What are you all hoping for in your stockings this year?
Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?

*DISCLAIMER* In no way do I expect to receive all these gifts this is merely a wish list created for fun

Viva Espana!

Last week I spent the week in Alicante to catch the last rays of winter sun! 
and I had a brilliant time chilling out and eating and drinking far too much. 
Gutted to be home and back to reality. 

The weather while we were away was lovely and sunny but at night time it did get chilly 
Packing for this holiday was an absolute nightmare!
and as it was a last minute deal I had ZERO money saved up so had to get everything on a tight budget
but I think I done OK 
Thought I would share a few little outfit pics with you from while I was away 


Trousers - Primark
Vest Top - H&M
Jacket - Local Boutique 
Necklace -  Dorothy Perkins 
Sandals - Primark 


Maxi Dress - Dorothy Perkins 
Denim Jacket - New Look 
Bag - Primark 
Watch - Michael Kors 


Playsuit - Primark 
Shoes - Primark 
Bracelet - Internacionale 
Sunglasses - ASOS 



Playsuit - Primark 
Flip flops - Primark 
Bag - Primark 
Sunglasses - ASOS 

It was Halloween while we were away, and I had bought my Halloween costume before we booked the holiday, but Ryanair only gives you 15k luggage so I didn't want to take it, 
but loads of the bars on holiday were having Halloween partys so I insisted on buying some face paints from a supermarket nearby so we wouldn't look left out. 


Not bad for 5euro facepaints! 


HAHA we looked like total creeps! 
So that was my little week in Spain 
came home to lovely minus 1 degree weather in Glasgow.... GREAT!

A Very Pink What's In My Shower TAG

Good evening lovelies :) 

I'm back from my holiday in Spain 
and I had a brilliant time! but I did miss my little blog while I was gone

Just to let you know that my long horrible work hours mean that I am leaving the house in the dark and coming home in the dark so I can only apologise for the horrible FLASHY photos!!
I will try and take as many blog photos as possible at weekends when we might get a tiny bit of sunlight!!

ANYWAY
back to the post at hand

So when I went in for a shower this morning I realised how pink and coordinating everything in it was!
this was unintentional as but it looked so nice that I decided to do this TAG which I had seen floating around the blogosphere!



Hair 

Vo5 Nourish me truly Shampoo
This is a shampoo which I always end up going back to 
usually because it always ends up on promotion in my work for £1 and I always pick a few bottles up for when I run out of Aussie which is my favourite shampoo/conditioner brand.
This particular one is for damaged hair which my hair most definitely is right now!
I don't know if it's due to stress or not but I have really bad breakage at the front of my hair at the moment so I'm using anything I can to help it.

Vo5 Give me moisture Conditioner 
Again this product from the same range is always on promotion in my work so I usually pick up a bottle if I see it. I NEVER skip conditioner. It is sooo important my hair can get greasy quickly so I tend to use it mostly at the ends and try and leave it in for a couple of minutes depending on how late I have woke up!!

Lee Stafford Treatment for Hair that never grows past a certain length
Now I am sure you guys are sick of seeing this on beauty blogs but it really is a great product and my hair has definitely grown since I started using it 
I'm not sure whether or not that it is completely down to this product but it certainly helps!
I use this a few times a week as you are supposed to keep it in for at least 5 mins and I don't always have time for that in the morning (I'd rather have the extra 5 mins in bed!)
I'm nearly finished this tub, but I stocked up in the 3 for 2 offer so I have a spare to start using straight away 
when this tub is done :)

Face

Neutrogena Visibly Clear pink grapefruit daily scrub 
I have used Neutrogena scrubs for years but this is the first time I have bought this particular one and I really like it. I find it really refreshing.
 It lathers really well so you don't need much product and it goes a long way. 
I really like the smell and it wakes me up in the morning. 
I don't use this every day as I don't think it's really that great for your skin to use a scrub every day
so I only use this on the days I wash my hair and use a different cleanser at other times. 
I love the smell as well! 

Body

Superdrug Strawberry and Raspberry Shower gel 
So my MASSIVE bottle of Soap and Glory, Clean On Me ran out the other week  
which I absolutely loved! and I have already bought another bottle but I bought this in between times because I really like fruity smelling shower gels.
The smell is a little bit overpowering/sickly when you first apply it 
but the scent does calm down and it's fine 
 I don't love it though so I probably won't repurchase when this bottle runs out.



Just to add to the pinkness in my shower I've also got a bright pink sponge and loofah in there!

I'm not going to TAG individual bloggers to do this post 
as I'm a nosy bugger and would like to see inside everyone's 
so I TAG you all to do it! :) 



*Oh look some more pink accessories*
