SALES HAUL!

on
Tuesday, 31 December 2013


Hey everyone.

I've been sale shopping, yaaaaaaaay! I've also picked up some bargains that I thought I'd show you.

Starting off with Debenhams, I heard a few rumors on Twitter that YSL were doing cheap lipsticks, so of course I had to check it out. I asked the lady and she came out with the last shade at this price.


This is Volupte Sheer Candy: Glossy Balm, in the shade 10 Mandarine Acidulee. 
Originally it was £24.50, but it had 50% off which made it £12.25...BARGAIN!

Then I popped to Boots as I heard they had a lot of good sales.
I picked up this No7 face kit set containing a day and night cream, eye make up remover, a muslin face cloth, hot cloth cleanser and a headband.
Priced at £16, 50% off which meant it was down to £8; I mean I couldn't just leave it there ;)


Lush actually had a sale which was impressive as I've never seen Lush have one. They had 50% off of all their Christmas collection and I picked up this very cute 'The Christmas Penguin'.


I've been wanting to try Lush's 'Snow Globe' soap since it was in last year and I finally got it.
100g was £2.00.


I popped into Sports Direct as I wanted to get some clothes I could exercise in, so I just picked up a t-shirt in the sale.


This was originally £9.99 and it went down to £2.50.

The next thing isn't really beauty or fashion, but I'm a huge Disney lover and as it was in the sale I HAD to get it.


HMV you done gooooood! All of their Disney movies were £6.99, usually they are around £15 so I had to get my second most favourite Disney film.

I hope you all enjoyed this post.

Happy New Year and thank you for all your support on my blog.

Peace Out.

Peppermint Hot Chocolate Recipe!

on
Sunday, 15 December 2013
Hey everyone.

Today I'm going to be telling you how to make peppermint hot chocolate. I am a huge lover of Starbucks' version so I like to make my own!

Starting off with picking your favourite hot chocolate, here's two of mine: 


Cadbury's hot chocolate



and Maltesers.

Then you need to get two candy canes-


Get your favourite mug. 

1- Put you hot chocolate in your mug.
2- Crush one candy cane and then place it in the mug with the hot chocolate.
3- Boil your kettle and then place the boiled water in the mug.
4- Give it a good stir and add whipped cream, sprinkles, whatever you like.
5- Place your second candy cane in the mug, you can use it as a stirrer and it gives your hot chocolate more minty flavour.

I hope you all enjoyed this post.

Peace Out.

This week is all about gift ideas for females and males, whether is beauty of fashion!!

I'm going to start off with Females.

Female-Fashion:


I actually have this top and I adore it. It's so cute and I think it's a sweet Christmas present to get a friend or family member. Especially if you don't want to buy at Christmas jumper which vary's from £10-£12, this top is only £6. You can purchase this from Asda...or there are some similar ones in Primark at the same price.

Female-Beauty:

I saw this set in boots recently and I thought it would make a wonderful gift. It's all of Benefit's no.1. proucts in a set! It's got their best primer, mascara, bronzer, cheek stain, concealer and highlighter. I think it's every beauty lovers perfect gift.

Male-Fashion:


A BATMAN ONESIE...How cool is this?! I know not all men would appreciate this, but I think it's a great comfort for Christmas day. You can get this at Tesco and I think it's around £10ish.

Male-Beauty:


I'd say usually anything to do with lynx is a good gift idea for men and here is this years Christmas gift sets!
