December favourites


First of all I hope you all had a lovely christmas Spent with those who are precious to your heart. Secondly can you believe we are now in 2015 !

1.Queen of ...ta-da - I first saw this shaving gel when I was picking up my basics in superdrug and I'd never seen this product before,so thought I'd give it a go.Us girls will do  anything to have 'sensually smooth skin' as stated on the bottle.

The shave gel is lightly fragranced with a piña colada twist and has a natural moisturise and leaves your legs silky soft,smooth and totally smooch-able.

This was the only product avaliable but they have a website where they have a range of shaving gels and razors.

2. Barry m angled eye brow brush - eyebrows are an essential part to my makeup routine and I love a good strong brow so I use a mac shadow to fill mine in and brow drama to set my brows and my ruby and Millie brush was getting a bit worn so I tried a new Barry m one 

The brush is longer so it helps you create more accurate movements and the tip is super helpful to shape your brows.

3.maybelline colour drama - intense velvet lip pencil in 210 keep it classy.This lip crayon is the perfect autumn/winter shade and it's super easy to apply and is long lasting. 

4. Maybelline colour tattoo 24hr -gel cream eyeshadow in 35 on and on bronze
This eyeshadow is perfect just to wear on its own and with a primer underneath will last all day.Theres a  great amount of shimmer and maybellline are doing great this year !

5. Ink wear - some ink for the weekend, there an online website and there slogan is 'because fashion is tempory' which I adore.There are lots of packs to choose from and they last 1-2 days depending on the area but they look real I've had some friends fooled.

What have you loved this December ?

Lots of love

Pretzel hugs

Hershey's kisses

Equipment :

Tea Advent Calendar


I love tea and having it in a super cute mug makes it even better !

Even thought I'm 18 I still like to have an advent calendar but unfortunately this year I forgot to get one :( 

Don't panic whilst I was in tkmaxx I discovered something amazing .......
English tea company have a tea one !!!
It works the same way as any advent calendar, but you have a tea bag instead of chocolate.Each day in decemner until the 25th you get a new christmas tea bag.

I'm so excited as their is  13 different flavours :happy holidays , candy cane and sleigh ride etc 

I've never seen anything like it before and thought it was different, it was £5.99 and a great way to experiment with holidays teas and get into the christmas spirit ! 

What advent calendar do you have  ?

November Favourites


I know I'm certainly not the first to say this ..... But I'll say it anyway ....... I can't believe we're in DECEMBER !!

2014 is flying by and we will  soon be into a new year !!!
The last two months of the year are my favourite as I turned 18 in November and well Hello christmas :)

Seeing as November was my birthday month,I have a few new additions that I would love to you share with you ;)

1. Girl online book by Zoe sugg aka Zoella -

I read this book within two days of buying it,its honestly one of the best books I've read and I do love a good book.The story is exactly what I like to read in a book and I can't wait for the future of girl online!

2. Michael Kors watch -

I have wanted a mk watch for a long time but I've  never been able to decide which one I wanted! So for my birthday from my parents I got a Rose gold mk watch and it's just beautifull and I can't stop wearing it aha !

3. Michael Kors perfume -

Michael Kors is a great quality brand and I do have quite a collection and the sexy amber perfume is so ..... Sexy ... But really ! It's gorgeous even down to the bottle.

4. Laura mercier foundation primer -

Primer is a must for me due to having oily skin.The Laura mercier primer  is my new favourite.The formula is like a moisturiser and it does help my makeup last all day.

5. Body  shop hand cream -

Vanilla brûlée is a new collection from body shop and hand cream is another winter handbag essential for me.its  perfect pocket size and it leaves your hands soft and seasonal  smelling.

What are you November favourites ?
