Just as I was getting my blog-inspo back, I had to take a month out from blogging.
My personal life has been so stressful recently that I simply haven’t had time or the mental capacity. Sad face. I found that I was really missing planning and writing posts as I often find it to be therapeutic and a great way for me to unwind/switch off from adult life so with that in mind I’m making a conscious effort to write.
My life is still a bit hectic, but I’m really going to be strict with myself and ensure I take much more “me time” to write and enjoy my creative outlet here. Otherwise, I think my little head might explode.
I have a few posts planned a penned already with plenty more in mind!
It’s good to be back.
Winter wreaks havoc with the best of us in terms of our skin. I am certainly no exception and I have found that a combination of the weather, central heating and poor diet choices have left my skin parched and crying out for some moisture. Enter my relatively recent discovery in the form of Chanel’s Micro Beauty Serum…
Highlighter has really become such a “staple” product in all of our make up bags in the past few years. I, like every other female in the land, have become a little obsessed with highlighters and spend hours researching and sourcing new additions to the collection.
Today I share with you all my most loved high end highlighters…
Fall in Love Face Illuminator Collection £45
Top pick in this collection goes to this beauty. I love a good highlighter – it’s probably my favourite make up product. This palette looks stunning and looks like it would suit all skin tones. I have yet to try any of the LM face illuminators, but I would gladly test these beauties out…
Layer up Caviar Stick Eye Colour Collection £29
Another great value gift set which contains 4 of the LM infamous Caviar Sticks in Rosegold, Amethyst, Aubergine and Tuxedo. The caviar sticks usually sell for £23 each, so this is fantastic value.
Going Glam Palette £35
This little set looks like a great palette to keep in your handbag or drawer at work for emergencies as it covers all bases.
- 4 Eye Colours: Coquette, Vie en Rose, Ro-cocoa, Espresso Bean.
- Cheek Colour in Riche Nectar
- Bronzer in Soleil Bronze
- Mini Lip Glacé in Sparkling Daiquiri.
Sweet Temptations Creme Brûlée Duet £35
It isn’t Christmas without one of LM’s beautiful, sweet bath and body gift sets.
This year the top pick for me is the Creme Brûlée duet which contains a luxurious body cream and honey bath.
I have used the LM honey bath before and the scent fills the entire bathroom and is super moisturising on the skin. A total luxury product.
What is your favourite from this collection? Am I missing any gems?

It’s time for my next instalment of my “top picks” Christmas gift guides. Today sees one of my favourite collections – Jo Malone.
I’m a huge JM fan and avidly await their Christmas collection each year. This year the Merry Mischief offering does not disappoint – the packaging alone is my favourite yet.
Time for another selection of “Top Picks”, this time from Space NK’s Christmas Collection.
Another day, another top picks from the Christmas collections!
Today we’re taking a look at what MAC have to offer in the form of their Nutcracker Sweet Collection, let’s dive in!
Sweet Copper Face Compact £29
The stand out product for me in this collection is the Face Compact duos. These come in two shades – a very pretty Sweet Peach and an intense Sweet Copper. The highly popular Whisper of Gilt highlighter makes a comeback in the Sweet Copper compact, making it very covetable in my opinion. A blush and highlight for £29, bargain!
Nutcracker Sweet Basic Brush Kit £45
I always enjoy MAC’s holiday brush kits and this year, the packaging is even more adorable than usual. My top pick is the basic brush kit which contains the following brushes:
190 Foundation Brush
129 Powder/Blush Brush
213 Fluff Brush
209 Eye Liner Brush
316 Lip Brush
Sweet Nude Lipstick Kit £26
Another great value offering to me comes in the form of the Sweet Nude lipstick kit. Although the four lipsticks are mini size, this kit still offers a good punch for the money in my opinion.
The 4 shades are all from MAC’s permanent line:
- Creme cup;
- Nouvelle Vogue;
- Kinda Sexy; and
Nutcracker Sweet Plum Eye Bag £39
The final pick of the collection for me is this little eye bag which contains:
- Extra dimension eyeshadow (smokey mauve);
- Technikohl Eyeliner (purple dash);
- Pro longwear paint pot (stormy pink); and
- False Lashes mascara (black)
What do you have your eye on from the MAC Nutcracker collection?
