My Christmas wish list & Gift guide 2015

Hey guys, so today I thought I'd share with you my Christmas wish list. I thought this would also help some of you with ideas on what to get your friends, family, or even if your struggling on what to ask for yourself. I also did one of these posts last year, which you can find here.

Victoria Secret gift card
I absolutely love Victoria Secret; it's probably one of my favourite shops, but it's so expensive! So I'd really love a voucher so I can do a bit of shopping in there, haha!

Michael Kors watch
I've wanted a Michael Kors watch for a while now, I'm in love with the rose gold ones.

Zoella Beauty products
I already have a few items from both of Zoe's ranges, but I'd love some of her Christmas products: in particular the rose gold toiletry bag (I think it's clear now I have a thing for rose gold- haha!) I'd also like her bath fizzers, I love the cute jar they come in.

Benefit gift set
I think most of these are sold out now, but I only have one benefit product so I'd love to try some others, and I think the gift sets, in particular the selection box are a great way to do this.

MAC products
The only MAC products I own are 3 lipsticks, and I LOVE them! The colour selection for them is just amazing, I'd really like to try Velvet Teddy along with the Soar lip liner. I'd also love to try one of their nail varnishes, I was having a browse of their website and I saw a rose gold shade, named cocktail hour. 

Clinique contour stick
I've recently started using some skincare products from Clinique, so what better time to try a makeup product, and I love the idea of a contour stick.

Dressing gown
I really want a super thick fluffy dressing gown that's really warm, and when I saw this one from Topshop, I fell in love!!

2016 Diary
I love Louise's aka Sprinkle of Glitter's diary, it's so pretty and I know it will help me get organised next year!

Tangle Teezer
I already have one of these, but for some reason there's loads of fluff in it- does anyone know how you get fluff in a hairbrush?!! But anyway I'd like a new fresh one, I really like the plain black one, or the pink and blue one!

Photo frames
I'd love some more of these as I love putting pictures up of different memories, and especially because this is my last year at school, I think I'll have loads of good memories to display!

I hope you've all enjoyed this post, and it's given you some ideas if your stuck for presents!
I hope you all have a fabulous Christmas :)

Clothes show 2015 haul // W7, NYX & Lee Stafford

Hey guys, so this year I visited the clothes show for the second time. I went last year and absolutely loved it, so I knew I had to go back this year. It's such a good experience for shopping: to try loads of different brands, some which I'd never heard of before, and to get things so much cheaper than in store, especially makeup! I bought a few bits, mainly makeup but also some hair care products.

Starting off with the makeup, I saw this stand called Peaches & Cream. I'd never heard of it before, but some of their products looked great, and were so affordable! I've needed an eyeshadow primer for a long time, so I thought I'd pick one up from here. I haven't used it yet, but for £3, I couldn't go wrong.

Next, I knew I needed to visit the NYX counter, as I can't seem to get hold of any NYX products in the UK, and I know they're really hyped about. First of all I picked up a butter gloss, in the shade sugar cookie. I think this is such a lovely name, and it sounds really festive. I can't work out if this is more of summer or winter shade, as it is kind of a dark, but at the same time bright purple shade! It's such a gorgeous colour, and I think it was around £4.

I also picked up the jumbo eye pencil in milk. This is one of their post hyped products, I can't wait to use it as a base for my eye makeup, or even to brighten my eyes up.

I saw the W7 brand, and this is another brand that is really hyped about in the beauty world, and I've never seen it in shops before. I stopped myself from buying anymore makeup products, so I bought this really cute little gift set, with a nail varnish and two little pots of glitter in, which I think will be great as a little Christmas gift or stocking filler as it was only £3!

Onto hair care, I visited the Lee Stafford stand. I've tried the hair mask for hair that never grows past a certain length, and I absolutely love it, it worked so well on my hair, so I knew I wanted to try some other products. All of the products were 4 for £12, which is absolutely amazing, as they are so much more expensive in Boots. First of all, I bought the CoCo LoCo shampoo and conditioner. This is made for silky, soft, shiny hair. It smells incredible, so I can't wait to start using them.

Finally, I picked up the oily roots, dry ends shampoo and conditioner. This describes my hair perfectly, so I thought I'd give it a go. The shampoo contains tea tree, so this is what will be helping the oily roots, and the conditioner contains Shea butter and keratin to nourish the ends of your hair.

Have you ever been to the Clothes show?
I hope you've enjoyed this post!

Autumn/Winter fashion favourites

Hey guys! Today I'm back sharing with you my Autumn fashion favourites.

Tartan scarf
I've been in love with these since last Autumn, and I try to 'pull them off' with every outfit- even if it doesn't always work haha! I have a red one but also a cream and orange one which is my new addition (featured in my 16th birthday haul) from ASOS. I think tartan scarves are great to brighten up or add a bit of colour to a dark outfit, without it looking summery!

Black Joni jeans
Joni jeans are the only jeans I actually wear. I don't like any other jeans! They fit perfectly, and the black ones are my favourite for Autumn.

Oversized jumpers
Oversized clothes are always more 'in' during the Autumn/Winter, especially oversized jumpers. This one is from topshop, its grey with some black writing, it's long sleeved, and it was £26. It's so soft and thick, and so comfortable for lazy days, but can also be dressed up with jeans, a tartan scarf and boots for going out.

Chelsea boots
I recently picked up my first pair of chelsea boots and I love them. Mine are from Primark and were £13, they have a small block heel, and they're slightly pointed at the toe. For £13 you can't go wrong, but don't wear them on a long day where you will be doing lots of walking (like I did in London) as you will end up with MASSIVE blisters, ouch!

The other day I ordered a black and white long coat/jacket from Boohoo for £30. It is a bit like a blazer as the black bit kind of folds over outwards if you understand what I mean?! I would have linked it so you could all see it, but it's not available anymore. Sorry I haven't provided a photo for this, because it's long it was extremely difficult to take a good photo of. It's so warm and thick, and looks fashionable at the same time so I love it.

I hope you've enjoyed this post!
