life #3

Hi everyone :)

I do have a few posts planned but I just need to find the time to get them up! I thought after the festive period things would quieten down a little but nope, not yet!

So again I have a little life post with photos from mytubo (instagram for Android pretty much) over the past few weeks. mytubo recently added the feature to have full size photos rather than the original square, so the sizes of these images are a little all over the place. Anyway!


1. Snuggly socks that you've seen before :) 2. Of course, a cat photo :D 3. Baking another rainbow cake 4. Back at work. Depressing. 5. These taste amazing! 6-8. It was recently my 2 years with my boyfriend so he made me dinner and bought me flowers :)

What have you guys been up to? Hope you're all well!

new year's eve

Hello again!

Just thought I'd do a quick post to show you my New Year's Eve outfit!

pictures 156pictures 160

Dress/Belt/Blue Necklace: Primark
Heart Necklace: Dorothy Perkins

Excuse the socks! We had a sort of party at home like we do every year so the socks were nice and comfy since I didn't have to walk around in heels like I would if I was out :)

This dress cost me £5 instead of £10, I actually bought it on New Year's Eve. It wasn't exactly in the sale, I think it was just on offer. I love it though and it's quite different to anything I'd usually wear. As you can see I took off the blue necklace after I saw the first set of videos. I originally wore it to go with my belt but I felt that it looked too much with the heart necklace, but something was missing without it. What do you think?

make up

For my eyes I used all colours from my BH Cosmetics palette which I talked about in this post. My eyeliner (which is uneven I know - I was in a rush!) is Eyeko Graffiti liner in purple, which is now unfortunately discontinued.

Bonus drunken picture because I think my eyeshadow looks nice in it!

I hope you all had a great New Year's! What did you get up to?

christmas

Happy New Year!

I hope you all had a lovely break, I know I did, although it's gone by so quickly :(

So here's my Christmas post, doesn't seem like a year ago that I was doing my last one!

christmas tree

Our tree before we opened our presents

I only have a few photos of my presents as 1. I didn't want to show you absolutely everything and 2. There are 3 things which I'm saving for their own posts.

presents

Since we were young, me and my sister have always got a sack of presents from 'Santa' and then our presents from our parents are wrapped under the tree. This is the contents of my sack this year. I have to admit, I'm a confessed fan of Katie Price books!

whittards

Drinks and drink.. accessories? from Whittard's. The two things in the middle are solid chocolate stirrers. I love Whittards, I now have 4 teas and 2 hot chocolates. I did also get a tub of Strawberry hot chocolate and a mug which are in the kitchen because I've been using them a lot. You should all try the Strawberry hot chocolate, its delicious!

mittens

Super cute mittens :) I assume these are supposed to be owls (I love owls!) but really they could get away with being quite a few animals!

presents

All my makeuppy type presents. As you can see I've swatched the No 7 polishes and really like them so far :) The three dazzle dusts came from my mum, she said they came in a set and to be honest they're not exactly my sort of colours but they could come in handy for when I need really OTT makeup. Click here for a photo of me showing her why they weren't exactly everyday colours! We went to see the Wizard of Oz stage show last month and that photo reminds me of it :)

The eyeshadow pallette is from BH Cosmetics - click here for a photo without flash which is worse quality but which shows the eyeshadows in a different light. So far I really like this, I'm definitely a neutral eyes kind of person so this is great for me :)

So that's all for today, I hope you liked! I was very lucky with all my presents and am very grateful to everyone who got me them!

What did you all get for Christmas?
