Warm Me Up For Winter Tag

December 2014

I saw this tag on Benita’s Blog, Benita’s Beauty Bits and Bobs. I’m so happy Benita is blogging again, I missed her when she wasn’t. You guys should go and check her out. Anyway, this tag looked like so much fun I simply had to have a go at answering the questions myself.

1. What’s your favourite hot chocolate?

This is a hard question! I love hot chocolate during the winter months and I love trying different flavours of hot chocolate. I don’t think I can choose!

Bomb Cosmetics Haul – October 2014

Bomb Cosmetics Haul

October 2014

So, not long after my Lush haul, I found myself on the Bomb Cosmetics website, looking to see if they had there Christmas stuff out. They did and I went a little bit crazy! Bomb Cosmetics always draw me in with how cute their products are! And everything I got in this haul is from this years Christmas line, so if you see anything you want, it won’t be around forever.

So, I got quite a lot of bath products. The first thing is the only product I have repurchased from last year and that is the We Three Kings Bath Creamer. This has such a fresh scent and I just love it.

Lush Haul – October 2014

Lush Haul

October 2014

I just can’t resist Lush when they bring out their collections for the holidays. So I decided that I had to treat myself to a couple of things.I didn’t go too crazy just yet, but if I try anything that I really like then I will consider buying back ups. None of the Halloween collection really caught my eye this year, but I’m not a big Halloween fan overall anyway. But I love there Christmas stuff and I also got two products which I believe are inspired by Bonfire Night (or Firework Night or Guy Fawkes Night, which ever you want to call it) and that really excites me as it is one of my favourite nights of the year.

Bomb Cosmetics Haul – December 2013

Bomb Cosmetics Haul

December 2013

So I’d heard a couple of things about Bomb Cosmetics and had come across their website when looking for alternatives for Lush but had never bit the bullet and bought anything. But then I won some money in a raffle at work and decided to treat myself to a couple of things. So I thought I’d share what I’d bought with you, and surprise, surprise, they’re pretty much all bath products. My products arrived in this really cute purple box with this really colourful packaging, which I thought was really nice. I have quite a back log of posts at the moment and this Haul is actually from the beginning of December but I’ve only just got round to posting it.

December 2013

The first look I wore in December was this Christmas Tree Lights nail art design. The base colour I used was Essie’s Mojito Madness. For the electrical cord I used A-England’s Camelot and for the colourful lights I used H&M’s Lime, H&M’s Summer Sunrise, H&M’s Pale Violet, H&M’s Nail Him, Sinful Colors’ Misty Red and Natural Collection’s Hibiscus.

Outfit of the Day – Casual Christmas Day At Home With The Family

Outfit of the Day

Casual Christmas Day At Home With The Family

I really enjoy doing outfit of the day posts and I thought what better day to do it for than for Christmas Day? My style for Christmas Day is pretty much smart casual. The morning is spent in pyjamas but then my grandparents always come for dinner and I need to look presentable even if I don’t leave the house.

Lush Haul – November 2013

Lush Haul

November 2013

Okay, so I let myself go a little crazy on the Lush website a couple of days ago and this fairly large haul is the result! Most of the items I bought are from the Christmas and Halloween 2013 collections, or from the retro collection. I didn’t really need any Lush products, I still have quite a few left from when I last bought from the Lush website in around March/April time. Pretty much most of the Lush products I buy are for the bath, so I’ve made a promise to myself that I will use my Lush products more often. I’m thinking about doing a series of posts entitled something like “Lush Products I’ve Used This Week.” Let me know what you think of that idea. But that’s for another post, for now, let me share with you what I bought from Lush.

Nail Art – Snowy Winter Town

Nail Art

Snowy Winter Town

I wore this design at the beginning of December. It seemed like ages since I had done any nail art and Christmas should have provided plenty of opportunities to rectify that fact. However, it is now January, and I’m only just getting around to posting this. Family drama and being ill meant that I didn’t get to do any other nail art last month. Even when I wore this design I didn’t feel very Christmassy, and although this is inspired by the wintery town scenes you get on Christmas cards I’m tending to think of this as more winter nail art rather than Christmas nail art.

Nails of the Month – December 2012

Nails of the Month

December 2012

I didn’t actually wear that many different nail designs this month. I started the month all excited about doing loads of Christmassy nail art, but then family drama of the bad sort happened and then I got ill, so my nails were not a priority and for about a week and a half period I either had really chipped nail varnish on, or no nail varnish on whatsoever, something which has not happened since about March!

Anyway, at the beginning of December (it seems like a lifetime ago) I had a really important meeting for work, which involved a day trip to another city. So I reached for my go-to nail varnish when I want to look professional and that is China Glaze’s Fast Track.
