Christmas Tag 2014 ♥

It's that time of year! What better way then to kick off our festive seasons with a little Christmas Tag!

1. What is your favourite Christmas Movie/s?
My most favourite Christmas movie has to be, the one, the only, the classic....Muppet's Christmas Carol!!
Most possibly A nightmare before Christmas, but that's the kind of film that's good on both Halloween and Christmas.
2. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?

I open my presents on Christmas Morning, i don't know anyone who opens them on Christmas Eve? Plus a lot of people are working Christmas Eve and the majority have Christmas day off so it just makes sense :D

3. Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?
My Favourite Christmas Memory will most likely be when i was much much younger.
I remember that i went to bed and tried soo hard to sleep, i was so exited that i couldn't!
I could hear my mum and dad wrapping all the presents up downstairs (Trying their best to be quiet but i don't know how sellotape has ever been quiet).
4. Favourite festive food?
Good Ol' Christmas Dinner!
All the trimmings! But especially the bread sauce and Pigs in blanket (If you don't know...I'm shocked so i will tell you! They are tiny sausages wrapped in bacon, mmm delicious)
5. Favourite Christmas gift?
I simply cannot answer this question. I love all the gifts bought and given to me!!
6. Favourite Christmas scent?
100% Festive spice.
So, spiced oranges, Cinnamon etc.
I have a festive Yankee Candle which is Spiced Orange, which i always light around this time of the year.

7. Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
Thinking back over the past few years i can't remember if we did!
All i can remember is spending my Christmas eve getting our local Next store ready for the Boxing day sale (Talk about not being able to enjoy Christmas...we had to be there for Boxing day for 5am!!!)
Other then that...most likely sat around with the family watching Christmas Films or You have been framed!

8. What tops your tree?
For quite a few years we had a hand made (Infant school...made) angel.
It was one of those really nice arts and crafts ideas that teachers always made you do to get into the spirit of Christmas.
I remember she had a basic cone shape which i glued gold glitter too, most of which has fallen off!
She has yellow wool for hair and golden pipe cleaners for wings!
But after about 17 years she has fallen apart slightly so at the moment it's a big old golden glitter star!

9. As a kid what was the one (crazy, wild, extravagant) gift you always asked for but never received?
I used to have two Guinea pigs called Fluffy and Scamper who both had passed away and i missed them dearly, so i asked my parents for some more guinea pigs.
I honestly thought that i was going to get some guinea pigs, turns out they had bought me an Anamatronic guinea pig called Guppy! Needless to say i wasn't impressed!

10. What's the best part about Christmas for you?
The best part about Christmas would be...Seeing all your friends and family. Giving and receiving amazing gifts.
I do have to admit...working in retail has turned me into a bit of a scrooge.
Y'know, working right up until Christmas eve...serving customers that qeue out the door, then having a day off that you can't really enjoy because you have to go to bed early to get up mega early for a boxing day sale that customers have qeued outside for since 12AM!!!!


Joke's aside, i really do love Christmas. I love the effort everyone puts in with the decorations and i love seeing all the houses illuminated. All the Christmas jumpers and onies...even for pets!

This tag was found on the Makeup Savvy Blog page!

Sick sick sick ( >* - * )>

Hi everyone!
It's that time of year! Share the gift of giving, festivities and...bugs.
Working in retail doesn't help either. Imagine someone coming into a shop then sneezing and coughing in both hands, only to use those bacteria filled hands to go into their purse or wallet and hand you more bacteria filled money!
It's a never ending cycle!
My whole house hold has been infected with a bad chesty cough, blocked nose and bad headaches.
My mother was even hosppitalised it was so serious. 
This is the reason I haven't been filming or blogging much.
That and I got put onto 38 hours a week on shop floor and behind the tills...on my feet all day. So by the time i got home I went straight to bed to sleep!
I am feeling so much more well now.
I don't think I'm going to film until after Christmas now but don't worry! I have plenty of ideas in mind...and a little secret too.

As for blogging. .. well I've got lots of drafts saved that I need to finish off editing, proof reading and schedule on here for all you lovely readers of mine!

So, do not worry! I am back on the mend!

Lime Crime Lip Gloss ♥

I've been following the Lime Crime Cosmetics company for a while now, ever since they started off with a few brightly coloured lipsticks and Zodiac Glitter but never made a purchase as i thought they were a tad pricey.
But I've finally decided to treat myself and i made a buy!

I have had this at the top of my wish list for a while and its the:
           ♥ Lime Crime Carousel Gloss in Candy Apple.
Even the names are adorable.
The packaging is very quirky and makes the product feel all the more luxurious.

I never used to be a massive fan of lip glosses as i hated the way they felt on my lips but this was an exception.

I love the smell of this lip gloss as it smells very sweet almost like an cake you want to eat.
I've tried wearing the lip gloss by it's self and wasn't too fond of it but as soon as a stuck a lipstick underneath it was sensational!
Wearing it does make you feel like you have a very luxurious product on and i found myself checking my lips out in mirrors or shop windows i walked past.
The glitter is so magical underneath and you don't have to just stick with your usual reds underneath, you can go for darker or lighter colours that will look fab.

I have quite a few more cosmetics on my wish list from this website, especially the Velvetines!
I always look forward to their new products, but as i mentioned before they are only really treats for me as they are slightly expensive.

My Winter Lip Life Savers!

If you are like me and have to have that little tub/tube of lip savers in your bag then this might be a good read  for you!

I used to have a condition with my lips when i was much much younger that meant i had to have a permanent source of lip therapy by my side to quickly prevent chapping and splitting of my lips, it need to be highly moisturising. (Ouch sounds painful!! I can tell you that it was! :( )
Stress also was a factor in why i kept getting cold sores at the sides of my lips too.

Since then i have searched high.....and low for a really good quality of lip care.
They must be really good for your lips and they must also be at a price that won't break the bank.
I used to love the good ol' Vaseline tins but as it turns out, it was doing more worse then good!
I used to apply Vaseline to my lips around 20-35 times a day and would lick my lips if they felt really dry. Now i can confidently say i only apply this stuff maybe 3-5 times a day now.

(Apologies for the state they are in! They have been well used!)

Since then I've had small break outs caused by stress that I've managed to keep under control with these babies!
It's been hard but I've managed to keep it under control and to the point where if i feel i need a bit more extra moisture to my lips i know exactly what i need to apply before they get chapped.
So for those of you who suffer from very dry lips or no longer have that natural moisture to your lips then these beauties might just be the investment you need.

All 4 of these products are by the brand Blistex, it's amazing! They have lots of different products tailored to your lips needs.

Of the 4 i have -      Blistex Intensive Moisturiser in a tube,
                         Blistex Daily Lip Conditioner Aloe
   Blistex Relief Cream
Blistex MedPlus

And they aren't pricey!! Most are prices for just under £3 each!

I would recommend these products to any one who has troublesome lips.
They are 100% going to be continuous repurchases for me!!

Here is their website -

Maybelline Colour Drama Review

At the moment I'm really in love with lipsticks and lip pencils!
I was actually out looking for more lip liners when i came across this chubby lip pencil.

They had various colours in stock but these two grabbed my attention straight away.

 ♥ 130 Love my pink.
Already looks a little dulled down because I've worn it a few times already, so i just need to sharpen it up.
♥ 310 Berry Much.
They both feel so velvety smooth and the big pencil means you get more coverage for your lips.
It feels moisturising as well as being a Matte effect.
They are extremely pigmented.

The coverage is excellent as long as you don't eat anything, then again it's like that for the majority of lipsticks and pencils.
But Berry Much tends to have a bit more staying power due to the darker pigments.

There is also noticeably less bleeding because they act as both a lip liner and the full lipstick itself.
I feel I'm going to get a lot more use out of Berry Much at the moment as its more of a darker Autumnal colour. Love my pink is more of a brighter spring/summer colour.
The colour is really nice, but to me its much more lighter then on the colour at the end of the pencil.
They will be a favourite of mine for a while and I'm going to get other colours to add to my collection.

If you own a Maybelline Colour Drama pencil let me know what you thought!!

They are mostly available at your local drug store, Boots, Superdrug or a super market such as Tesco.
