Taking Archie To See Santa at Wyevale Garden Centre

I've always loved Christmas, its easily my favourite time of year and has been since I can remember. I have wonderful memories of Christmas as a child and it gives me those warm fuzzy feelings in my tummy when I reminisce and think about all those magical moments. Christmas as an adult has always been wonderful too, but I think it's children that bring that extra magic to Christmas. Now we have Archie, Christmas has become magical again and this year will be his second Christmas. For me it means getting into the Christmas spirit early, putting on those Christmas films and I kid you not, Archie and I spent a good portion of last week dancing around to Christmas music - All we need to do now is put our tree up, which is happening sometime this week! I just want to cherish all these magical Christmas moments, which is why we plan on doing as many festive things as possible over the next month. This weekend we really got all those festive feels and took Archie to our local Wyevale Garden Centre to see Santa in his grotto.  It was so special and so magical, so I thought I'd share our day with you and it might help you decide where you want to take your little on this festive season.

Girls With Attitude Fairytale Eyeshadow Palette

Can you believe party season is just around the corner? It's crazy, this year has just flown by, like honestly where has the time gone? I don't know why but it feels that everybody, including myself if getting into the festive spirit much sooner this year and I'm pretty sure the Christmas ads don't show this early on. Not to mention Christmas gift guides are popping up on my feeds everywhere - I'm cerdinally not complaining though, this has to be my favourite time of year. As I'm starting to feel particularly festive I thought I'd start getting my Christmas related posts up and I thought I'd start things off with showcasing this beautiful palette from Girls With Attitude, which is going to be perfect for any Christmas party you have coming up.

Does The NEW Maybelline Tattoo Brow Really Work | Results & Review

Hands up if you hate doing your eyebrow! Hands up again if you always have major brow drama and filling them in is the most annoying part of your makeup routine! Let me tell you, my hands are way up high in the air. I like to think that I do an ok job when it comes to filling my brows in - If you look at my selfies a few years ago, to what they look like now, theres definitely a huge improvement in the way my brows look. BUT I hate filling them in, I find it so time consuming and I know the saying 'brows are sisters not twins', but sometimes my brows don't even look like there related! The idea of getting my brows tattooed on or micro bladed has always been appealing, but if truth be told I don't have the time or money for that. So when I started seeing all the hype on Instagram about the new Tattoo Brow from Maybelline I was curious and knew I had to pick one up on my next trip into town. I brought one a week ago and I have to say I'm impressed, so I thought I'd share with you all my results and give you all a review so you can decide if its worth picking one up yourselves.

My Five Favourite Nudes for Autumn/Winter

My Five Favourite Nudes for Autumn/Winter

It's been a long time since I typed up a lipstick post, which is quite shocking for me as lipstick is easily my favourite makeup product. I think its because I have a lot less time to do my makeup now I have Archie and I always reach for an easy trusty nude that I know will work with every look. I have  a few nude lipsticks that I've been reaching for non stop over the last few weeks and I think they are  perfect for the season, so I thought I would share with you all my top five favourite, because I know you guys love a nude just as much as me.

All Eyes On You | New Makeup From 3INA To Make Your Eyes Go WOW!

3INA Eye Makeup - All Eyes On You

One makeup brand that I've really been enjoying over the last few months is 3INA, it's makeup brand thats only been available to the UK quite recently. In August I tried and reviewed a few of the 3INA best sellers (which you can read here) which really impressed me, so I was pretty excited when a parcel came though the door the other week with some of the new releases from this brand. Some of the bits they sent me over are beautiful and I think are perfect for the up and coming party season. I know December is still a little way off and you might be thinking lets get Halloween over and done with first, but December is my favourite time of year and I'm already getting excited about the festive season, which includes my choices of makeup. For me holiday makeup is about going all out and the new eye makeup from 3INA* will really help make them pop.

Urban Decay Trouble Maker Mascara - Super Fat, Super Long & Sex Proof!

Urban Decay Trouble Maker Mascara

Whenever I think of Urban Decay, my thoughts immediately go to their eyeshadow palettes, the Naked ones in particular are some of my all time favourites. I've found over the years that when it comes to makeup Urban Decay always get it right - I love everything from their eyeshadows, lipsticks and the All Nighter Foundation has become my holy grail. However I've never tried any of the Urban Decay mascaras - Shocking, right? My reason for this, is because I begrudge paying more than £10.00 for a mascara, especially when mascara is so hard to get right. So I've always resisted the urge to splurge and stick with drugstore mascaras instead. That is until the new Urban Decay Troublemaker Mascara* made its way through my letter box and its made me have a huge rethink about high end mascaras. So I thought I'd come on my blog today to let you guys know if this new mascara is worth its price tag.
