What I got for Christmas 2012 :) Part One

My majorly overdue Christmas post! Ryan really really spoilt me! I'd seen my present pile at his house but when it made it round to my house it had tripled in size. So thank you Ryan! I'm a big kid and used to love having tonnes of surprises when Santa came. I'd rather have lots of little things than a big expensive present but this year I got everything. and I am really appreciative.


H Samuel Sparkly Earrings

Pearl style Bracelet trio

2 Shamballa Style Bracelets

Wallis Lilac Bracelet

2 Pandora Charms - one purple bead, one polar bear :)

( My mum noticed that I had this one in the bathroom already and thought it would be a good bet aha)

Boots Butterfly Clips
(These are perfect for clipping my hair back at work, thanks Em!)


Nail files

Ryan bought me this for our first Christmas together and it's still my favourite. My last bottles almost gone so he got me another one! Its really sweet and maybe smells a bit like fudge but I love it!


Great minds think alike!

This No7 set includes a head wrap, eye make up remover (which so far I think is really good!), hot cloth cleanser, a muslin cloth and a day and night cream.

Part 2 to follow!

If I didnt post this so far, it'd drag on for even longer so I thought this is better than nothing!

Top Nail Varnish Picks For Autumn/ Winter

Autumn/ Winter to me means wearing a lot of grey and black with bursts of khaki and burgundy for colour. Literally, if I see anything khaki coloured, i'm in love and now that's transitioned into my nail varnish thanks to last month's Glossybox.  Here are my current go to nail varnishes, although I did place a Boots order on Cyber Monday for some of the Revlon Gel Envy polishes so there could be some additions to this soon! Nails Inc Gel Effect Polish in 'Kensington High Street' Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in 'Plums the Word' Color Club Nail Lacquer in 'Barely There' Color Club Nail Lacquer in 'Glossy Seal' Nails Inc London Polish in 'Battersea Park'       Color Club Nail Varnishes have a great opaque consistency and you can easily get away with one coat. I actually prefer the regular Nails Inc varnishes over the gel effect ones but I love this burgundy shade. Sally Hansen varnishes have a great

Astrid & Miyu

Astrid and Miyu have become pretty big in the piercing world. I've been fond of their items for a little while but thought they were quite a pricey brand. Although, when I actually had a proper look on their website, I realised there were some reasonable items on there. They are very kindly offering 30% off to NHS staff at the moment so I decided it would be a good time to try a few pieces. I went for a pair of huggies earrings and a pair of studs to wear together.  I have my lobe, upper lobe and left helix pierced. My body doesn't actually respond very well to piercings; I've found the healing time to be long and quite painful. The first time I had my ears pierced at around age 7, I found out I was allergic to gold and had to let them close up. However, once my piercings are healed I find that I can wear gold. I had them re-pierced with titanium at a tattoo shop with belly rings as I don't think titanium was readily available at the time. I remember a dark tatt

Statement Necklaces - NEXT

I have been searching for the perfect statement necklaces for so long without success. I'm a bit too fussy you see. The majority of statement necklaces in the shops are gold and it's rare for me to wear gold jewellery; I much prefer silver! In all the shops i've looked in, there has always been something not quite right: too big, too spiky or the wrong colour. I'd actually given up hunting for one but this morning, I ventured into NEXT. Next isn't somewhere that I usually go into but I was surprised at how many nice things they have and there were definitely a few that I wanted! I couldn't choose between the following two necklaces so treated myself to both! They were quite hard to photograph but i've linked the items so you can check out the stock photos on the NEXT website.
