Snow is falling...all around

Firstly I hope all of you had a lovely Christmas and got lots of lovely goodies! Santa was definitely good to me this year and I can't wait to share with you some of the pieces I got and some bits I purchased myself.

The first item I wanted to show you was this amazing set from Philosophy. I love Philosophy shower gels and the amazing, different scents they come in. Up until now my favourite has always been 'Coconut frosting' but now 'Snow Angel' has definitely taken over. This gorgeous, fresh scented fragrance is a must-have. It leaves the skin beautifully scented but is not too overpowering. The fragrance is described as being like freshly fallen snow. I would say it's fresh with a very slight fruity edge. I purchased the small size of the shower gel and fell in love with it so went back and purchased the set which includes a 240 ml of the shower gel and the same amount in the matching body lotion. I love having the lotion as it increases the fragrance and leaves your skin feeling and smelling amazing. The set is actually now available for half price in some Boots stores which makes it an absolute bargain (around £9) I would definitely recommend!

It's Christmas!!!!!!

I want to firstly apologise for the lack of posting these past few weeks. As it is nearly christmas, all my spare money has been going on presents. Therefore I haven't had any new items to share with you all. That will all change soon. If Santa brings me some of the lovely goodies I have asked for there will be plenty of posts to come! So please stay with me!

In the meantime, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and I will speak to you soon xxx

All that glitters is gold

My nail polish choice of the week is this gorgeous, orange/gold colour from O.P.I called 'Rising star'. It is an amazing golden metallic which is perfect for the festive season. When the light catches it it gives such a golden, glow to the nails. Even though it does have glitter in, I only needed two coats to give me the perfect coverage. I would say I much prefer this gold to the Barry M gold foil polish I have used before. This has more depth and is brighter where as the Barry M one looked too matte and pale against my skin tone. This is the perfect shade to get you in the festive spirit!
