Favourite Christmas Jumpers ♡

1) 2) 3) 4) 5)

Even though my family and I don't really celebrate Christmas, I still enjoy doing something Christmassy on the day. I get in to the Christmas spirit by wearing a festive jumper, and then usually decorate my room with multiple fairy lights, watch festive films and drink a cup of hot chocolate. So today I thought I would share my favourite Christmas jumpers with you, to get you all in the holiday spirit.

I would love to know how you celebrate Christmas, let me know in the comments below (´・ω・`).

Too Faced Makeup


Today I'm going to review all the Too Faced Makeup that I own. I've made mention of my love for Too Faced before. I'm not going to lie, the main reason I adore Too Faced Makeup to such an extent, is because of the packaging, I'm a sucker for cute packaging. I own 3 products by Too Faced; sweethearts perfect flush blush in candy glow, chocolate bar eye shadow palette, and the melted lipstick in peony. 

1) Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush in candy glow: Let me just start by saying, the reason I bought this blush was, because of the adorable packaging, and to be quite honest I was not sure how the product itself would be. When I got it, I immediately put it on, and I was so impressed. It gives your cheeks the perfect peachy pink tint along with a lovely glow. It also acts as a highlighter, which makes it even more special. Overall it's my go to blush, its quick and easy to use, and it's worth your money. The blush consists of three different shades of pink, I usually just swirl my brush around, and all the colours beautifully combine, creating a lovely natural peachy pink look on your cheeks. 

2) Chocolate Bar: Like every other Too Faced product, this one comes in a really cute packaging, in this case it resembles a chocolate bar, it doesn't get better than that, right? The first thing that comes to my mind while talking about this is, that it actually smells like chocolate, which is incredible. I've had this for over five months, and it still smells like chocolate. Anyway, moving on to the product itself.. what I love most about this is the versatility of the shades. It has almost all the neutral shades you could dream of, from baby pink (my favourite), shimmery bronze to matte brown; this palette has got them all. Compared to the naked palette, I prefer this, which is saying a lot. The quality is the same as compared to the Naked palette, which is great, but the only difference is this in my opinion, has more of a variety of different shades, so instead of buying three naked palettes, this one should be sufficient. The eyeshadows stay put  for a good amount of time too. All the shades look lovely on your eyes, this palette is fit for pretty much any occasion, and any time. 

3) Melted Lipstick in Peony: Right now, I'm on a mission to find the 'perfect lipstick/s', and this is close to what I have in mind. This is a really pretty colour, I would say it's a medium to light rosy pink colour. It is a liquid lipstick, so it's easy to apply, and I love how it feels on, it feels smooth and slightly velvetyIt is a soft pink, which would work for any makeup look. I would definitely recommend  getting this, it is one of those essential lipsticks, which you would want to own and it will be much use to you, since it makes a perfect everyday lipstick. it looks natural on, and at the same time makes your lips stand out and look gorgeous.

I hope you enjoyed reading this post. I would love to know if you own any Too Faced products, and if you do, how do you like them? Also, what are some of your favourite makeup/beauty brands?

☆ My Top 5 Favourite Albums Right Now ☆

King Con - Alex Winston:
I've been listening to a lot of random artists lately, and have come across Alex Winston, who has become one of my favourites already. I really loved the beat to each song, her voice is fantastic, and even the lyrics were well written. I really hope she comes out with new music soon.

Different Colors -Walk the Moon :
I started listening to Walk the Moon, when I first discovered indie pop, which was a while back. I had loved all their music, so naturally I was really excited when I found out they came out with a new album. I admit, it could have been a little better, but maybe I just think that, because I had really high expectations. Nevertheless, I really love it. Some of the songs really have you on your feet. I love the happy upbeat vibes that you get from listening to most of the songs. My favourites would have to be Shut Up and Dance and Work This Body.

1989 - Taylor Swift:
This album was just beautiful, one of the rear albums that you can listen to without having to skip any tracks. In my opinion, it is her best album so far. This album is full of feel good songs that make you smile.

You can listen to most of the album here too c:

4. My Blood Is Full Of Airplanes - The Cinema:
 I can't tell you how much I love The Cinema, they are one of my favourite bands. This is also one of those albums, I can listen to without skipping any of the songs. I love this specific genre of music, and I really enjoyed listening to this album, and continue to do so.

5. Black Star Elephant - Nico & Vinz
I love the positive vibes that each song in this abum releases. These are the sweetest and most positive songs that I've listened to. If I feel low, listening to this album will surely cheer me up. The lovely lyrics paired with the upbeat music, make each track on this album perfect. My favourite songs would have to be; Know What I'm Not, Running and People.

I hope you enjoyed reading this post. If you have heard any of these albums, I would love to know what you thought of them, and also what your favourite albums are at the moment ♡

September Favourites ☆

This month I have quite a few favourites, everything from beauty, lifestyle and other favourites. 
First up lets talk beauty, here are some of my beauty favourites:

1) Mac Mineralize Skinfinish Natural: I was really excited to try this out, because I had heard so much about it, and let me just tell you I fell in love the fist time I used it. The Mineralize Skinfinish is the best finishing powder I have used so far, and it is a must have. It leaves your skin feeling soft and looking flawless, it blurs imperfections and looks nice and light on your skin. Your makeup can not look cakey if you have this gem on.

2) Too Faced Chocolate Bar: First of all, can we please talk about the adorable packaging, I'm a sucker for cute packaging, so thats a huge bonus for me, also when you open it, it actually smells like chocolate! The range of nudes is great too, from shimmery shades to matte, this palette has them all. The eyeshadows are pigmented,  long lasting, and you can work with these shades both day and night. I personally love the baby pink and the shimmery light pink. I think this is the perfect neutral palette to own, since it has a versatile range of neutral shades.  

3) Too Faced Sweethearts blush in Candy Glow
I'll be honest with you; the real reason I bought this blush was because of the cute baby pink heart that the product was in. But, even the blush itself was surprisingly great. The blush gives your cheeks a perfect rosy pink colour and subtle glow. What I love most about this blush is that; it plays the role of a highlighter as well as a blush, and who doesn't love multitasking products.

4) Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation: This is my holy grail foundation at the moment, it gives you the perfect coverage, covers all imperfections, stays put all day and makes your skin look fresh and alive. It's the best. 

5) Baby Doll Kiss & Blush (no.9): So I have a love-hate relationship with this product. First of all, I love the packaging; it looks like a fancy nail polish bottle. Other than that, I adore the colour, it's a very pretty pastel, medium rose pink. In my opinion, it's a pretty and unique mix of pastel and medium pink. It looks lovely on the cheeks, and works as a great cheek tint, however it doesn't last all day, the colour starts to fade after a couple of hours. On the lips, it looks nice too, however I  feel the need to keep re-applying it every now and then, which puts me off. I also wish it was a little more matte. However, it still is my go to lip and cheek product, simply because, it is a multitasker, it also feels quite nice on the lips, because of its creamy texture, and like I said earlier its a beautiful and unique shade of pink, which I can't seem to get enough of.

6) Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser: This is my favourite cream cleanser of all time. It has helped a lot with my blemishes so far, and even other wise. I've also been getting compliments on my naked skin, and I predict it's the result of this beauty. The cream has a thick consistency, and you basically massage the cream on your face and neck, take the muslin cloth, wet it with warm water, gently massage your face with the cloth, and then wash your face with cold/normal water. This leaves your skin feeling super soft and squeaky clean. It also does a good job removing your makeup. I'm really loving this so far, and I would recommend you try it too, I think it would work for all skin types, so give it a go. 

7) Clearasil Rapid Action Pads: I was not sure if this was going to work well or not, but these rapid action pads have proven to be a lifesaver product for my skin. I use them when my acne starts to show up, and/or when I'm having troubled skin days or weeks, where my blemishes don't seem to be going away, I'll just use one of the pads before bed, and wake up with half of them already gone or less visible. 

Lifestyle Favourites:

Little Twin Stars 2014-15 Planner

1) Little Twin Stars Planner: I love how sweet this dairy/planner is, It's so pastel and adorable. I use this for noting down my homework, making to-do lists, taking notes and sometimes for writing down my thoughts. It has the calendar, space for notes and planning each day, and it comes with a pack of pretty little stickers. Every page is sweetly designed, and just looking at it makes you happy.  It makes staying organized 'fun', and it acts as a mood booster for me too. 

2) Frends Taylor Layla Headphones (Rose Gold): I've been wanting these headphones for at least two years now, so you can imagine how excited I was to finally have gotten them. Their not cheap, but their gorgeous, everything about them is elegant and chic, from the rose gold colour to the fashionable design. The sound quality could have been better, having said that it's not bad either. They come with a white pouch, which is very handbag and travel friendly, which makes life a lot easier. Anyway, I've been loving these headphones ever since I got them, I love how the look, and the whole idea of such beautiful headphones. 

3) Sleep Sommeil massage oil and body cream (lavender chamomile) Bath & Body works: For as long as I can remember, I've had a huge problem falling asleep at  night, and this has been a huge help. Ever since I started using this my nights have never been better, the lavender and chamomile scent is so calming. Both the massage oil and body cream, help calm me down and sleep better. 

Other Favourites: 

1) Leah McFall Home ft Such a lovely song, Leah's voice is beautiful, and I'm also loving the music video♡.

2) ASOS: For over two years now, I've been obsessed with the online store, ASOS, and now days, I've found myself mostly just shopping from ASOS. I love the fact that it's online, ships FREE worldwide, and has the cutest stuff. It's got stuff for everyone, and at affordable to reasonably prices. ASOS sells fashion, beauty, accesories and other gifts and pieces from different brands, as well as their own. I can always find a number of things that are of my style and taste, which is basically anything cute and pastel, but whatever your style is, you'll find tons of stuff you'll like at ASOS, like I said; they have got stuff for everyone. 

3) Once Upon A Time: OUAT is back, and this year Storybrooke is frozen,  which obviously means Elsa is in town, yes the one and only; Elsa, queen of Arendelle. I was a little scared as to how they would fit her and the rest of the frozen characters in the story, but it's all coming together, and the show keeps getting more and more interesting. So far I'm really enjoying the season, and I'm looking forward to the upcoming episodes.

I hope you enjoyed this freakishly long favourites post, and I would love to know some of your beauty, fashion, lifestyle or/and any other favourites, leave a comment and let me know.

My Dream Coat ♡


I love everything about this coat, from the adorable perter pan collar, to the pretty pastel colour and the elegant shape and design. It is perfect in my eyes. Truth be told, my love for it only increases, knowing Ariana Grande has worn it, because she is one of my style icons. It also looks extremely warm and cosy, but I can’t say that for certain, since I don’t own it. I have been wanting this coat for a while now, but unfortunately have never got around to buying it. Nevertheless, I felt I needed to share this beauty with you, because some of you might like this almost as much as I do. I’ve been loving Miss Selfridge's line of coats this winter, they have all got this very elegant and high fashion look, that I'm adoring. I definitely think if you haven’t already, you should check them out. Most of them are on my winter wish list at the moment.

What did you think of this coat, and are there any pretty coats on your winter wish list? I would love to know, so please do comment below if you can.

Motivational Monday ♡

Summer break is over, and it's time to get back to work for most people, which can be really stressful. Its important to have a positive attitude and not to stress out or worry too much. This picture has helped me realize, that I might be having a bad day or have a problem or two to deal with, but it's not worth stressing or being upset over, because there are people with bigger problems, and there are more important things in life. Also, thinking about it all day wont help get rid of the problem, Soon, those problems you had to deal with; that bad day, or embarrassing moment, won't matter.

If you're going through or dealing with something, talk to someone and remember you're not alone, a lot of people have gone or are going through what you are going through right now. So, please stay strong, be positive and remember in the end, you'll be okay! Also, if you want to talk, I'm here for you, you can find me on my twitter or you can email me, my email is:

There are different things that you can do to deal with whatever you are going through. For me, I've seen writing down how I'm feeling, or listening to music helps. So, I made this playlist on Spotify (), which will hopefully help me get through this week and the coming weeks. Feel free to check it out, I hope you like it. I also hope you enjoyed reading this post, and that it makes you feel a little bit better.
