Walking In A Winter Wonderland Blogmas Day Six - My Christmas Tag



Ho Ho Ho, 

Welcome to Blogmas Day Six,  Today's post is going to be a tag one and it's my Christmas tag. Now I did do this post last year and the answers are pretty much the same but it's always nice to do a 2017 version so here it is!
  
Also if you want to do the tag then feel free to do so and leave me a comment below with a link so I can check it out!

Question 1- Real Tree or Fake Tree? 

For me it is a fake tree always, I love the look and smell of a real tree but it's just so hard to maintain. So yeah a fake tree any day of the week for me. 

Question 2 - Favourite Festive Food? 

Pigs in blankets by a mile. Is their anything better than pigs in blankets at christmas time. To be fair close second would be Baileys Ice cream which is also a food that is only out at christmas time. But the overall winner is Pigs in Blankets. 

Question 3 - Favourite Christmas Memory 

Not sure that I have one specific Christmas Memory that is my favourite as I their are many memories that I love. Also stay tuned for day 11 when I tell you my top five favourite memories. So to answer that I haven't got one specific memory that is my favourite. 

Question 4 - Christmas Day Outfit - Dress Up Or PJ's 

I always dress up, we go to my Nan's every year so staying in my pjs isn't feasible. But yeah I love dressing up at christmas and planning my outfit. Also in Blogmas Day 18 I will be showing you my outfit in full. 

Question 5 -  Christmas Away Or At Home?

For me It's always home, theres something so magical about spending it with family. Don't get me wrong I wouldn't say no to a christmas in New York or somewhere cold, but am not a fan of hot christmases.

Question 6 - When Do You Open Your Christmas Present's

This may seem a weird one to ask but I have friends who have opened their presents as soon at it strikes 12 and its christmas day. For me we always open ours of a morning once everyone is awake.

Question 7 - What Tops Your Tree?

This year we have a star topping our main tree in the living room and an angle topping the one in our dining room. Being honest though were not fussed with what tops our tree, it's just whatever we fancy that year.

Question 8 - Favourite Christmas Movie?

This may come as no surprise to some of you if follow me on social media, but my favourite christmas movie is The Polar Express. It's been my favourite ever since I watched it as a little girl. The story line is amazing and is what brings the magic. It's also a tradition in our house to watch it on christmas eve and it helps get us in the mood.

Question 9 -  Favourtie Present You Have Ever Received?

Baby Annabelle by far, I was obsessed with dolls and playing house when I was younger, so when santa got me this present it made my christmas

Question 10- Any christmas Eve Traditions?

I do have quite a few now I am not going to say what they are as I do have a post going live on the   talking all about them

Q11 - Finally What Are You Looking Forward To The Most This Christmas?

Spending quality time with the family. Christmas is the one of the few times we get the family together, and with my grandparents getting older I cherish every christmas I get with them.

So their you have my christmas tag, I hoped you enjoyed this post. if you do this tag leave me a link in the comments so I can check it out.

Walking In A Winter Wonderland Blogmas Day Five - My Top Christmas Markets






Hey everyone, 

Welcome to Blogmas Day five, todays post is going to be all about christmas markets and what I think are the top christmas markets for 2017. 
So if your looking for a last minute market getaway keep on reading. 

Brussels - Belgium 

This is the christmas Market that I visited last year and it is defiantly not one to miss. They have an amazing christmas market that is spread out all over the town centre, which sell a range of things from food to decorations and other little bits and bobs.
They also have an amazing light display that happens every night in the town centre where the large christmas tree is.
Finally if you to go to Brussels you get to experience Belgium chocolate and theres no better chocolate than theirs. That trip is what got me into the christmas spirit last year and I can Imagine it would be the same for you to.


London - England 


London is a beautiful city and is even more so at Christmas time. London has christmas markets dotted around the city from the one on Southbank, Leicester square and covent garden to name a few. There is also Christmas markets in London's spectacular Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park.  I normally try and take a trip up to London at Christmas time but unfortunately this year my schedule doesn't allow for it but I will defiantly going back next year. So if you want to go to a great Christmas market without spending a lot of money this one is your best bet.




Prague - Czech Republic

The best way I can describe Prague is a fairy tail city so you can imagine how amazing it would be at christmas time. Prague's christmas markets take place in Old Town square and Wenceslas Square. With all the Lights, little huts and good food and music it is a great little place to visit. One to defiantly put on your list


Munich -  Germany

Is their anything better than a german market. Munich has always been a place I want to visit and for good reason. Their christmas market looks stunning to start with, add that to all of the wonderful food and drinks that are on offer how could you refuse.

Paris - France 

First of Paris is magical at any time of the year but make it more festive and it's a bloggers paradise. With so many amazing photo opportunities and the chance to soak up a parisian christmas who could say no. Now unfortunately the Champs -elysees market won't be their this year but their is still other christmas markets dotted around the city.

Walking In A Winter Wonderland Blogmas Day Four - What Christmas Means To Me


Ho Ho Ho, 

Todays post is going to be about what Christmas means to me and what I love about Christmas Time. Now this is going to be a more personal post so if your not into them then feel free to click away.

Christmas is hands down my favourite time of the year by far. I do feel like sometimes we can all get swept up in the hustle and bustle of Christmas (Me Included) that we sometimes forget the real meaning of Christmas, and what it means to us.

Now I don't want to come of sounding preachy and saying you should all have the same view as me, cause this is not what this post is about at all. Everyone is different and will have their own opinion on what Christmas means to them and that is totally fine. this is just my view.

For me personally Christmas is all about getting the family together, eating good food, having a few drinks while making memories and reminiscing on memories gone by. For me as long as my family are all together on Chrsitmas day then I don't care what else happens.

Don't get me wrong I do like receiving gifts now and again as am sure most of you do but for me I much prefer spending time with the family, doing a range of activities and making memories to last a lifetime.

As a family we don't get together a lot as we are so busy with our individual things so coming together for christmas makes it oh so much more special. We all put aside everything else and just focus on the family.

So What Do I Love About Christmas Time?

I adore everything about Christmas. I love how it makes everyone upbeat and positive. I love how magical the month of December feels. I love watching all of my favourite Christmas Movies and discovering some new ones. I love belting out my favourite Christmas songs with my friends and Family. I love going to the Christmas Markets and feeling even more in the mood for Christmas. I find So Much Pleasure in picking out the perfect gifts for my loved ones.

So if you haven't guessed by now I love every ounce of Christmas and the holiday season. I would love to know what Christmas means to you and what you love about this time of the month. Leave me a comment below with your answers.

I hoped you enjoyed this post and I will see you all again tomorrow for Blogmas Day five.

Have A Wonderful Winter Day,
Until Tomorrow,

Walking In A Winter Wonderland Blogmas Day Three - My Christmas Playlist



Ho Ho Ho, 

Welcome everyone to blogmas day Three. Todays post is going to be about what it on my Christmas playlist. Now as soon as bonfire night is over I am all about listening to those Christmas Songs. Each year I like to create a playlist on spotify which I listen to leading up to the big day. 

I won't be telling you all about every single song that is on my playlist for two reasons. One we will be here for days and number two is that I am planning on doing a post on my top five
christmas songs, so they are missing from here as well. 

Now if you do want to listen to the full playlist feel free to do so here. Lets not ramble on any longer and get into the post. 

Santa Tell Me -  Ariana Grande 

I absolutely love this song and it is one of the more recent additions to my playlist. It is a more upbeat christmas song which is perfect for party's. It is one of the better pop christmas songs out there and an essential on any Christmas Party playlist. 

Matt Terry - When Christmas Comes Around 

This one is a the newest edition to my playlist. I am not the biggest fan of Matt Terry but this song is great, defiantly not my favourite or an essential but a good song nonetheless. 

Leona Lewis - One More Sleep 

Another Christmas Song I love cause of how upbeat it is. I love a good christmas song you can have a  dance to and this is defiantly one of them.

When Christmas Comes To Town - The Polar Express Movie

I adore this film and it will feature quite a bit in these blogmas posts so it's no surprise this song is on my playlist. My favourite song from one of my favourite scenes in the film, you can't help but love this song. The kids singing and the song as a whole is just beautiful.

So I hoped you all enjoyed a little insight into my Christmas playlist this year. If you do want to check out the full playlist you can do here. I would love to know what's on your playlist so let me know in the comment's below.

Have A Wonderful Winters Day,
Until Next Time,

Walking In A Winter Wonderland Blogmas Day Two - Beauty Lovers Gift Guide



Ho Ho Ho, 

Welcome back to Blogmas day two. Todays post is going to be my beauty lovers gift guide, so if you have any beauty lovers that you haven't bought for hopefully this will give you some inspiration. 

This will be split into two categories £25-£50 and £50 and over. I have also got a stocking fillers gift guide coming soon which will feature the cheaper ( and I put that mildly) beauty gift sets so look out for that. 

£25-£50


Mac Snowball Face Set - Whisper Of Gilt - £35
If your looking to spend a bit more money then this present is the perfect gift. The packaging is stunning and the highlighter itself is beautiful. It comes with a face brush and a matching sequinned pouch in the beautiful rose gold shade. It screams luxury and has the quality to match. Unfortunately I Couldn't find an image that would allow me to upload so if you want to see what it looks like, look out for an image on my Instagram very soon.

Jouer Best of Nudes Lip Creme Collection £30

This is a gorgeous set of lip cremes and a great way to try out some of the brands cult products. I have never tried Jouer Cosmetics before but this would be something I would love to receive if I was trying out the brand for the first time. This features 8 mini's of their nude lip creams. Now it is currently out of stock on Cult Beauty but if I was you I would get yourself added to the waiting list as this is great gift for any beauty lover.

Becca Apres Ski Face Glow Palette £45

Can we first of talk about how stunning the packaging is for this product. I own the matching eye palette and it is just as stunning. Talking about the face palette it is stunning and would be the perfect gift. It features a bronzer, two blushers and three stunning highlighters. Defiantly one to get the Becca lovers or anyone who loves a good glow, I know it's going on my wish list.


£50 And Over

Hourglass ambient lightening Edit Volume 3 Palette - £60


I picked this up in Sephora while I was in New York and it is so beautiful. I think any beauty lover would love to receive this with the rose gold packaging and the shades are absolutely gorgeous.

Charlotte Tilbury Instant Eye Palette  - £60

This is one of the best palette's I have ever used and my oh my Charlotte Tilbury knocked it out of the park with this one. The palette is split up into four looks, day eye, desk eye, day eye and disco eye. The shades are beautiful and blend so effortlessly. It is so easy to create a smokey eye so great for novices but also anyone who loves makeup would love to receive this.

Becca Limited Edition Shimmering Skin Perfecter Vault £175 

Now this product is definitely a luxury product but if you have a Becca Skin perfecter fanatic in your life then this will defiantly will blow them away. This set includes six full size skin perfecters in a range of shades from rose quartz to moonstone. Obviously with the price tag of £175 it's not going to fit everyones budget but if your looking to splash out a bit more on a luxury gift for a loved one this is a good place to start.

So their you have it my beauty lovers gift guide. I haven't included a wide range of products as I wanted to carefully select the ones that I think are worth the money and would like to receive themselves. I have got a stocking fillers gift guide coming soon that will feature some beauty and lifestyle gifts so look out for that one as well.

What's In My Makeup Bag - New York Edition




Hey Everyone, 

I am back with another Post and todays post is a whats in my makeup bag New York edition. I have tried to pack light for makeup as I know I will be buying makeup when I am their but for some reason it still seems like I still have a lot. I may have to cut this down as we get nearer to the time. 

Base 

I have only packed one of each item apart from foundation as I have both a night time and a daytime
one.


Laura Mercier Hydrating Primer - A great moisturising primer. 

Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation - I love this foundation on me even though it oxidises slightly it's still a great foundation for the evenings which is what I will primarily use it for. 

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser - I am not planning on wearing a lot of makeup daytime if any, but if I do this will be my base of choice. 

Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer - A great concealer which I can wear on it's own or with my foundations to give more coverage. 

Laura Mercier translucent powder - Only thing I use to set my makeup with, a dream product. 

Charlotte Tilbury Blusher in Love Glow - A great blusher that can be worn day and night. 

Mac Soft & Gental Highlighter - I can use daytime to give me a subtle glow or pack it on in the night to give an intense glow. 

Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray - Sets it all in place and helps it last all night long. 

Eyes 

I haven't took a lot for eyes as I know my mum has got me the Charlotte Tilbury ultimate eye palette, which I will be getting while in new york as a birthday present.

Mac Fling Eyebrow Pencil - My eyebrow pencil of choice

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara - Current favourite mascara gives beautiful lashes.

Charlotte Tilbury Uptown Girl Eyeshadow Palette - Gorgeous palette but I am only taking it as a backup until I get my one of my mum.

Mac Naked Lunch eyeshadow - For the days when I just want something easy to put on my eyes.

Marc Jacobs Eyeliner - Don't normally wear eyeliner so I thought I would try this one out. 

Lips 
So I should probably cut this down considering my mum has got me some lip products as birthday
presents which she is taking with her.


Mac Soar Lip Pencil - My current favourite lip pencil

Mac Viva Glam Nicki 2- My current favourite lipstick a bit of a darker nude.

Chanel Coco Gloss - Gorgeous luxury gloss cant get enough of it.

Mac Prancin Dancin Dazzleglass - Gorgeous sparkly gloss to give my lips that bit of sparkle.

 Chanel Rouge Coco shine lipstick in Boy - I just can't seem to not take this. Gorgeous shade and finish perfect for day and night.

Tom Ford lipstick in      -  This is my more nude pinky lipstick

Charlotte Tilbury pillow Talk lip liner - Go to nude lip liner, best one out there.

So that's what I am taking in my makeup bag. Considering I said I wasn't taking a lot it actually seems like I have packed quite a bit. Knowing me I won't end up wearing half of what I take anyway. I hoped you enjoyed this post please do let me know your thoughts in the comments below.

What's in your travel Makeup bag?

GlamGlow SuperMud Mask Review




Hey everyone,

I am back with a long overdue post on the GlamGlow Supermud mask. A while ago GlamGlow contacted me asking if I would like to try a mini of this mask and I of course accepted. GlamGlow is a brand I am so excited to try and pick up some things from in Sephora when I go to New York.

GlamGlow's SuperMud Mask is described as 'their most advanced clearing treatment. The mask was developed by the company to help fight the most common skin concerns that both men and women have. It can be used by both men and women and is for super clear and super poreless looking skin'.

Before trying the mask I read some reviews online just to get some information on the product, a lot of them said it wasn't suitable for sensitive skin which worried me slightly. Glamglow also state on their website that it's not suitable for sensitive skin but I still wanted to give it ago.

So my first impressions of it was that it looked a lot like my trusted Origins clear improvement mask, so I was intrigued to see if it worked the same way. 

I applied a thin layer of this all over my face, now you can use a thicker layer but as I only had a sample I wanted to make it last two uses. Once applied I started to feel the tingling right away. Now this wasn't uncomfortable it just felt like the mask was doing it's job.



I did feel some stinging and burning when it was on but I put this down to me having sensitive skin, as the mask does say it's not suitable for sensitive skin. However if you don't have sensitive skin you should be fine. I was able to cope with the burning as it wasn't painful just more uncomfortable but like I said if you have sensitive skin use at your own risk. 

Personally I left this mask on for around twenty minutes from which it turned from a charcoal colour to a light greyish with dark blobs dotted around your face. I assume that this is the mask lifting the dirt and grime from our face. 



Having removed this mask I found my skin to be a lot lot smoother, my spots didn't look half as bad and overall my skin looked like it had a facial at the spa. 
I loved this mask and it defiantly lived up to the claims it made as my skin was super clear and super poreless after using it. 

Would I purchase the full size? Yes although I would probably only use this once a month as a spa treatment due to it not being suitable for sensitive skin. I am however hooked onto GlamGlow's masks and looking forward to picking some up when I go to Sephora Next month!! If you want to check out this mask then you can find it here 
I hoped you enjoyed this post let me know in the comments below.

Have you tried GlamGlow SuperMud Mask? If so how did you get on with it, Also what other masks from them would you recommend me trying.

My Top Five Highlights Of Summer 2017


Hey Everyone, 

Todays post is a bit different to what I normally post as it's a bit more personal than the others. So the post I have for you all today is my top five highlights of my summer 2017! Summer 2017 brought me many highlights but these are my top five favourite. 

Tenerife - June 2017

Tenerife was the perfect way to start of my summer holiday and it gave me so many highlights. It was only the second holiday I have ever been on where it has been just me and mum. My mum is my perfect travel companion we have similar taste and this holiday was one to remember. We made so many memories together and I can't wait to go back there again with her very soon. I also posted a trip report so if you want to see what I got up to then check it out here 


Passing My First Year of university 

This is such a highlight purely down to the fact that I didn't think I could do it. If you had asked me a year ago do you think you will pass first year I would of said no, but I continue to surprise myself every day. The results I got weren't the best they could of been but hey First year is worth 10% and this has given me the kick up the bum to do better next year. But defiantly passing First Year of University was huge highlight for me.


Spending quality time with family and Friends,

This summer I have been able to spend so much more quality time with my friends and family and that is why it is a highlight for me. My friends and family are the greatest support network ever so spending time with them and making memories to last a lifetime has been a highlight for sure. Also when uni starts up I will see them less as I juggle uni with a part time job, so making time to make those memories with them is something that will always be a highlight.

Mum's Birthday 

Mum recently celebrated a huge birthday and that was a huge highlight of Summer 2017.
We ended up going out for food and drinks with my god mother who is her best friend and it was lovely. They started of with cocktails and I started of with a vodka and coke in a place called The Alchemist. We then moved on to a restaurant called the Manhattan Bar and Grill in which I had a lady's steak and chips which were Devine. We then moved onto two other bars and had lots more drinks. Overall my mum had an amazing day and got totally spoiled.

Working 

This may seem a funny one to put but working in my job has been a highlight for me. The more hours I put in the more I get back so therefore more money for New York. Working was also a highlight for me as I adore my work friends and spending time with them is always fun while getting paid for it, so more money for my New York trip.  

I hoped you enjoyed this post, let me know in the comments below your highlights of summer 2017. Thank you for reading and I will be back again soon with another post.

Current Holy Grail Skincare Routine

O

Hey everyone, 

This little post will be my current holy grail skincare routine. These products at the moment are my holy grail for my skin and are helping them get back to where they need to be. 

Morning Four Step Routine




Of a morning I just follow the four steps of Cleanse, Tone , Eye Cream and Moisurise but of a night or a Sunday there can be added steps which will be talked about a bit further into this post. 

Bioderma Micellar Water - Been using this as my cleanser first thing and it does it's job. Been a fan of this product for years now and it never fails to disappoint me. I am on the lookout for a proper cleanser for sensitive dry skin so please leave your recommendations below. 

Avene Eau Thermal Gental Toner  - Love Love Love this toner, perfect for my super sensitive skin. Helps prep my skin for moisturiser and is the perfect in-between from cleanser to moisturiser. 

Kheils Creamy Avacado Eye Treatment- I apply this after toner just before my moisturiser to my eye area to give it a nice hydrating base. It lasts ages and helps not only give my eye area some much needed moisure but also to prep it for any makeup. Haven't found a better eye cream yet. 

Clarins Hydraessential Moisturiser - I think I have found the perfect hydrating moisturiser for my skin. This is super hydrating, lasts for ages on my skin and provides just the amount of moisture my skin needs while protecting it with the added spf. I have done a full review of this product so if you want to know my more in depth thoughts then you can check it out here.

Evening Routine 


So of a night I typically follow the same routine that I do of a morning, This routine happens on a Monday to Saturday and then of a Sunday I follow a different routine which I will explain below.

So of a Sunday I start with an exfoliating mask and my mask of choice is the Origins one.

 Origins Clear improvement mask - I put this on normally just before I get in the bath, and then by the time I get out it is time to wash it off. This mask is great for getting all of the dirt out of my skin and helping with any spots I may have. It does leave my skin looking red and slightly sensitive but that is due to me having overly sensitive skin.

Once the mask has come of I will leave my skin for around five minutes to let it calm down, and then I go in with my cleanser which I mentioned above is Bioderma's cleansing water, or if I don't have that in then I use the garnier one.

Once my cleanser has set in I go in with the same toner that I use in the morning as I find this works just as good at night as it does daytime.

When cleansing and toning is complete I will then go and apply my eye cream and let that sink in which takes around five minutes. Now on a Sunday instead of applying a moisturiser I will apply a hydrating mask and my one of choice is from Origins.

Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask - I use this mask as it is one I can apply then leave on overnight and wake up with hydrated skin. This mask is thick and can feel quite sticky when first applied but it soon sinks in and is unnoticeable as you sleep.

So that is both my morning and evening routine for both the week and Sunday which is what I call my pamper day. I hope you enjoyed this post let me know your thoughts in the comments below. Have a lovely Sunday and I will be back again with a new post next week.

Thanks For Reading,
Until Next Time,
