It’s nearly here ladies – and gents, if I’m including my boyfriend/dad/male family members that feel obliged to read my blog – the day that we’ve been waiting for since it rolled into boxing day last year is just around the corner. So, I thought I’d share some Christmassy goodness – christmassy goodness?… what a twat! – with you all to get you even more in the spirit. Or to get you Scrooges involved that refuse to put your tree up until a handful of days before. [If you are that person by the way, you are not my friend!… just kidding, I love you really, please carry on reading my blog 😉 ]
Yankee Candle 2014 Calendar – My Mum got this for me as part of my birthday present – along with far too much, I know you’re reading this Mum (Jesus, I’m too cool) you were too generous/naughty. But thank you! – and it is without a doubt the perfect calendar for me. It contains 5 Christmas scented Tea lights from Yankee candle and I have gone to town lighting these all day, ehrrday!
Sephora Lip cream stain, 03 Strawberry Kisses – I’m a
pussy wimp when it comes to bright lips. I hoard them, review them, lust over them like crazy but I never fail to feel like a clown whilst wearing them. However… it’s not Christmas without a red/bright lip is it? No, you’re right, it isn’t, and this one is my go-to “I think I’ll actually leave the house wearing it too” bright lip. The formula is also incredible so it’s perfect for the party season. (Mini review here)
MAC Melon pigment – This is such a sentimental product for me. Around 3 years ago now my Mum came home one day and surprised me with this so I always have fond thoughts whenever I use it. It is the most gorgeous shimmery, peachy bronze, metallic shade (can you tell I’m bloody awful with description? Head over to Make up and Beauty blog for a much better version, plus swatches) That aside, take it from me that it’s perfect for Christmas and I will no doubt be rocking this over the period.
Christmas nails – Whether you’re going for glitter, nail stencils or just your classic red – you have to paint your nails with a Christmas theme. It’s just like, the law or something… 🙂 I have opted for one of my favourite polishes – Formula X for Sephora, Illusionary – topped with some majorly
tacky, naff, cheap, chavvy glitzy nails stickers that I got from an event once*
*We all know that that means I haven’t got a clue where they’re from.
Now, it’s not Christmas without a terrible but amazing Christmas jumper is it? So of course I couldn’t leave out my own cheesy, cheesy offering of choice. (Included in the photo above as I failed to photo it on it’s own without giving off a “Hi, here’s my boobs” vibe. Blogger problems... But it is just as naff as a Christmas jump should be!
Vlogmas – I hold my hands up, Vlogmas is potentially my favourite thing ever about Christmas. Does that make me sad? Maybe. Do I actually care? Erm, I don’t think I do. (A loser and proud people, a loser and proud) I love Vlogmas – I love taking a nose into other people’s day to day lives whether they’re off doing something exciting or just lounging around the house. I love feeling like you get to know the girl behind the camera a bit more… basically, I’m just pretty nosy 🙂 Here are my Vlogmas favourites:
Fleur De Force – Sammi, The Beauty Crush – Zoe London – Amelia Liana – Susie, Hello October – Becca Rose
I would go into detail about why I love these ladies so much but let’s be real, I’ve spoken a lot already (and you’re probably bored
shitless) plus you probably know of them, or watch them yourselves already. What I would like to know though, is who are your favourite Vloggers? Who else do I need to subscribe to to get me into the Christmassy spirit (and let’s face it, perfect my procrastination skills even further!)
…Oh, and don’t forget to tell me who your favourite Vlogmas bloggers are 🙂
