Santa baby? Christmas wish list ❤️❤️

  

Yes, I know it’s early. But we are super early shoppers in this house! We started in February this year, which I think is even record setting for me! 

But we do like to make a big deal at Christmas time, I love spoiling my children and family. But what I enjoy most is being all together in the Christmas holidays. 

I’m not going to lie. I’m awesome at buying gifts. Sean however, not so much. But he is getting better! He knows to stay away from clothing/accessories unless I specifically point them out. And I know he makes his own little list throughout the year of things I’ve mentioned. Last Christmas he got me some great things! But I do always like to make a list, so that he can pick a few things from it. 


Dear Santa (Sean)

 

  • Books: 


The art of zen colouring books. Yes please!! You can pick these up everywhere at the minute, ranging from around £3/£10 depending on size. I love anything arty, but because it’s all to do with relaxing your mind, it makes me want them even more! 

   

  

  


All the bright places by Jennifer Niven 

One of my favourite you tube bloggers recently had this book on her June favourites (Zoella). I love reading and will read just about anything aslong as it has good reviews! When Zoella mentioned it, it was immediately placed on my list as it sounds like a book that I would really enjoy. 

  


5 year Q&A Journal 

Another one recommended by Zoella. It sounded really fun so would really like to try it. 365 questions for you too answer, 1 per day, then revisit every year for 5 years so that you can see how your answers have changed over time. 

  

  • Candles 


The bath and body works candles and the paddy wax candle will be a bit more expensive than I usually pay because they will be from America! But they are supposed to smell absolutely amazing! 


 Bow ties and bourbon 


  

Istanbul – Sparkling Amber


  
Soybean Massage Candle 
  


Rosemary and thyme 
  

  • Perfume 

  

  • Miscellaneous 


I love anything to do with Alice in wonderland. Especially the original illustrations. I thought this would look really cute on my dressing table with perfume or bits of makeup on. Failing that, it can always go in the kitchen! 

   

Some new mugs for my kitchen! Been long over due. There are only 4 shown here but I think there are 8 in total. I love them. Especially the Mad hatter one as he’s my favourite character. 


  
The angels sang when I seen this bag. My friend bought it not so long ago from Kurt Geiger and I just fell in love with it. I have been searching for the longest time for the perfect tan bag, and this is it! I love it so much. 

 
Acrylic Makeup Storage. I desperately need some of the larger draws for my palettes. I don’t really have a lot of room on my dressing table. So I’m hoping once the bedroom has been decorated that Sean will put some shelves up above it to give me some more storage space! 


 

  • Makeup

So that’s my list. Some things may change and I may update it as and when! There were items of makeup I was desperate to try, but then I’ve recently seen some bad reviews so I decided against them! 

Hopefully this gives Sean a little bit of help! Please let me know if you have tried any of the products I’ve listed and what you thought of them in the comments! 

Thanks for reading lovelies

Monthly Favourites (June Edition) 

 
June has been a great month for favourite products! I had too many so cut my list down and will perhaps include the rest in next months post. 

So here we go.. 

Sleek Matte Me liquid lipstick in shade Birthday Suit 💕

Good lord I love this lipstick. Everything about it from the shade (which is totally perfect), the consistency and how long it lasts! It literally lasts all day, I have to take it off in the evening and I’ve never had to do that with a liquid lipstick before. It reminds me a lot of the Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipsticks, but dare I say I love these more? And at around £7 they are a fraction of the price. They certainly stay on longer than ABH and the mixture isn’t as watery which I much prefer as I find myself having to blot the ABH dry if I’m in a hurry. LOVE LOVE LOVE this product.  

Sleek highlighting palette in shade Precious Metals💕💕

I’m really quite obsessed with Sleek at the moment. I find myself browsing Ebay almost constantly for different products. I stumbled across this when looking for contouring Palettes. I’ve been using it a few weeks now as part of my everyday makeup routine. It highlights my face really well, especially good for under eyes and tops of cheekbones. It’s 3 cream sections and one powder for Cupid’s bow, although I don’t tend to use that part. It has quite a glittering shimmer to it. Sean said I sparkle like the Vanpires in Twilight 😂

 


Collection work the colour eyebrow kit💕💕

Ive spoken on a previous blog about how much I adore this product. I bought it in the airport for £2.99 as was in a rush. It’s one of the best eyebrow kits I’ve ever used. Comes with 3 colours black, medium brown and blonde. A double ended application brush and a clear mascara for setting. I really recommend this product. I love it so much that I might not ever change it 😱

  
NYX matte finish setting spray💕💕

I will literally buy anything NYX related because I love the brand so much. More than likely my favourite makeup brand EVER. So when I seen this I had to buy it to try. And as always it’s perfect. Gives my face a matte look after makeup application, but also firmly sets my makeup in place for at least 12 hours! Which is more than enough for me to rate this product Excellent! 

  
Lush bubblegum lip scrub💕💕

YES!! Smells and tastes delicious! (That’s right it’s totally edible) I apply this in the evening before bed and in the morning before my makeup. Takes the dead/dry skin straight off my lips leaving them silky soft and smooth and therefore my lippy goes on perfect! Also you only need to use the smallest amount so even though the tub is £5.95 it will last you absolutely ages. 

  
Monuspa rosewood reviving mist💕💕

This was a product I got in last months Glossy box. I was rather disappointed in that box, but this was the one product I seem to have fallen in love with. I use it first thing in the morning before applying my makeup to freshen my face up and it smells wonderful! It also says on the bottle that you can use it to set makeup also but I’m yet to try spraying it after makeup application because obviously Ive been using the NYX product. 

  
Argan Oil💕💕

I bought this from Home Bargains for less than £2 and it really has helped with my hair. My hair is pretty dry now from all the bleaching not to mention the split ends. And this is slowly but surely starting to make a difference to the overall condition/feel of my hair. I apply this to towel dried hair but in very small amounts otherwise it will make your hair greasy. If I know I’m not going out the next day, I literally smother my hair in it and just let it sit. 

  
So that’s this months favourites! Have you tried any of these products? What do you think of them. Let me know down below. 

Thanks so much for reading. 💕💕
