So, it's been and gone...

For another year and only 363 sleeps until next Christmas (yes, I do love it)!

I really do hope that each and every one of you had a fantabulous Christmas and that you got everything you wished for! I had a lovely day (even if I was full of cold and suffering like a big baby) and received some lovely gifts that I wanted share with all you lovelies! Now I know not everyone likes these kind of post, but me, well I just love them! I am soooooooooo nosey and just love seeing what everyone else got, and I know there's others like me out there so I thought I'd encourage your noseiness and share my little pile with you!

I really didn't ask for much this year-I didn't actually need much, but there were a few things on my list that I was very lucky to have received!

*Apologies for the quality of photo's - my camera charger is down at the parents place and I keep forgetting to grab it, so I am making do with my phone camera*

Pandora Sterling Silver Heart Ring 

Pandora Single Weaved pearlised bracelet & a little Turtle charm - so cute!

 Sirius Skin Sonic - review to follow

Toms - unfortunately these were the wrong size so they are on their way back so the right size can be sent back out to me!

There were a few other bits like pj's a smellies - but these were the majority of my presents as most people just gave me money-too fussy to buy for apparently! I love everything that I got and I am very grateful to all my friends/family and bf for all their lovely presents - I hope they liked what I bought them just as much as I liked mine! 

Link me to your posts on what you got for Christmas, as I said, I'm very nosey and can't wait to see :)

Dermalogica: Renewal Lip Complex

Back in the October Glossybox, there was a few Dermalogica products, which I totally fell in love with, but one product in particular really has become a favourite of mine and I'm going to have to purchase the full sized version, and that was the Renewal Lip Complex!


I suffer all year round with dry lips, and in the winter, it's pretty awful. I have tried so many different lip balms/ moisturisers over the years, but nothing really does anything - nothing like this has done anyway!

Unfortunately, it was only a teeny tiny little tube in the Glossybox (1ml) but it has lasted me since October, although granted I've only been using it regularly more recently but I am very slowly running out :( which makes me so very sad!

This is definitely a product that I will be repurchasing. I've found it for about £16 on-line, which I wouldn't usually spend on a lip product, but, it really has worked wonders on my horrible dry lips!

Have you tried this before? Did you like it?

Origins Super Spot Remover

Hello there my lovelies,

Now I'm pretty sure we can all agree, spots are just not welcome, whenever they decide to pop up!

In all honesty, I don't suffer very often with spots, but when I do get them, I tend to get the massive ones - you know the kind, the ones that pop up at the most inconvenient time!

I'm always on the lookout for that miracle worker, and after reading Anna's post, I was sold! Whilst perusing the beauty hall in Selfridges, I stopped at the Origins counter and picked up this little miracle worker!


Typically, I didn't have any spots at the time, and I think it was the first time I've ever actually wished for a spot to pop up so I could try this out (strange I know), but sure enough, a few little nasty's have popped up and I got to give this a go! I have had it in my handbag since I bought it and use it as soon as there is any sign of a spot popping up and I can honestly say, since buying it, I haven't had a full on spot!

I'm not saying this will work for everyone, it's difficult with skin care, what might work for you, might not work for me. But I have been very happy with this little purchase. It costs £12 for 10ml, which does sound a lot, but you use the tiniest amount of product that this will last for quite some time I'm sure!

Have you tried this? Do you have a miracle worker you'd recommend?

Christmas Cookie

Just a quickie - I know that a lot of people have this already but I wanted to share my little treat that I picked up this weekend!

I know it's Christmas and you really should be treating other people, but I have been wanting to join the 'Yankee Candle' gang for a while now and once I took a whiff of this, I was sold! It has been burning non-stop since Saturday when I got it (obviously I blow it out when I go to bed or leave the house, but I'm sure you get what I mean)!

I definitely recommend going and giving this a good old sniff if you get the chance :)

I got the small jar which was £5.25 in Debenhams

Weekend 049

I apologise for the lack of posts recently - I am so busy with work and having a social life that at the moment, I just can't seem to find the time! Hopefully things will settle down a bit soon!

Anyway, I thought I do my weekend post (even though this should of gone up a few days ago)!

Friday: After finishing work, I jumped in the car and headed down south for my first installment of Christmas with all my Uni girls (and their partners)! We haven't all been together for some time now so this is one hell of a special Christmas - plus it's our first Christmas with a little edition to the group (in the shape of a little boy called Otto)! Aftere 3 and a half hours, I had arrived at my destination to be greeted by the following picture:

Yey! I''m going to be a God Mummy - I've never been one before and always said to my friend that I'd say no if she asked, but I just couldn't - I love the little mite soooo much! After a quick bath, feed, burb and then bed for Otto, I quickly followed!

Saturday: Up early to prepare all the veg for our Christmas din dins before the rest of the group arrive! Once finished, we headed off for a mooch around the Tree Barn on Christmas Common - how much more christmassy can you get!

Back home to get the festivities in full swing, complete with Mr Buble's Christmas album to get us in the mood! Like a true Christmas day, we ate soooooooo much food, opened Christmas pressies and had a bit too much to drink!


Sunday: Today was a long day! Up early again for the rest of the group to head off on a Boxing Day walk - apparently this is normal? I on the other hand stuck to my tradition and stayed in my pj's for as long as I could before heading off to join the rest of the group for a pub lunch! It was then time to make the journey back home! Unfortunately it's not to my own home, but to my parents as I will be spending the week here whilst my parents are in New York (alright for some)! Ah well, at least I have this to keep me warm!

I hope you all had a good weekend too - I am planning on having a very lazy weekend this weekend coming which involve just staying home and decorating my own house - It's killing me that I don't have my tree up yet!
