December Glossybox

I always have a sneek peek of other blogs to see what the products are before I get my glossybox, so I was really excited about getting my festive red box this month!

I was most excited about getting the Deborah Lipman Nail in Razzle Dazzle, I'll be painting my nails this colour for Christmas day - It's so sparkly!
I really wanted this Eyeshadow and blush from blink & go, in the reviews that I read on other blogs, the colours were more neutral - the colours in mine are a bit bright for everyday wear! I would have preferred the neutral palette but I can use these colours in Make up looks and the blushes look more wearable.

Really happy with this months box, it was nice to get a full sized rituals shower gel and I feel there are a good selection of products this month!

Winter Lip care

  • Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream Skin Protectant - This has to be my favourite of the bunch. This is an intensive treatment and is also multi use as you can also use this on dry, cracked and chapped skin. My lips have been so dry recently as It's been soo cold, I found this product has been the best at restoring them!
    • Lush Whip stick lip balm - This is full of great, moisturising ingredients and oils such as Honey, Almond oil, Oatmilk, Organic virgin olive oil & Shea butter. It also has Sweet Orange oil, Tangerine oil, Vanilla absolute and Dark chocolate! It smells amazing. Just like orange chocolate. This comes a close second for me, I use this in the mornings just before I go out to protect my lips and to keep them moisturised.
    • The Body Shop Coconut lip butter - I use this before I go to bed as this is quite thick and really moisturising. It works well for me to leave on overnight to sink in and when I wake up my lips feel completely moisturised, plump and smooth!
    • Nivea pure natural Milk and Honey - I keep this in my bag to re-apply throughout the day to keep my lips moisturised.  

    I love trying lip balms as my lips seem to suffer the most in cold weather, I've just recently bought Burts Bee's Honey lip balm which I absolutely love and really want to get a Korres Lip Butter but im not sure which flavour! 

    What is your favourite lip balm?

    Barry M Blue Glitter

           ...It's that time of year when you can justify wearing anything that sparkles...

    I picked this up the other week in superdrug, It's such a gorgeous sparkly blue! 
    This needs a couple of coats on the nails and then the blue sparkle payoff is so pretty and glittery!
    I also have the Red glitter Barry M Nailvarnish which is a stunning deep glitter red and reminds me of Dorothy's shoes in the Wizard of Oz!
    I hate the feel of glitter polishes - ew sandpaper anyone? - so I only really paint them on my toes. I will be Definately looking for some more colours for christmas, I'd love it if Barry M brought out an emerarld green or plumb purple one!

    Throughout November

    Photos in order:
    - DVD's, Mcintosh Spice Yankee Candle and Whittards Caramel Hot chocolate 
    - Shiny Conkers!
    - November Glossybox
    - River Island Make up bag, Marks and Sparks Mini Macaroons

    Appologies for the lack of posts recently - I've not been very well and spent pretty much the whole past month in bed sleeping, watching DVD's, drinking hot chocolate and eating Macaroons which my boyfriend has kindly brought me!

    I'm sure theres lots of reviews on Novembers Glossybox by now so thought i'd just say a bit rather than dedicate a whole post to it. 
    I was especially grateful for this months Glossybox. It cheered me up so much to receive a box full of goodies. It really felt like a 'get well' package! I could pamper myself with the variety of products for my hair, nails, feet and face! Normally I think I would find this only an average box this month but I so appreciated it due to the cicumstances! I can't wait for the December Glossybox, I hope its good for Christmas!

    I bought this cute little River Island Make up bag in October but as I haven't worn make up in such a long time I haven't yet had the chance to sort all my make up into it! They do fluffy ones too which look so much better but this one seems more practical as I can wipe it clean - Sure i'll get make up all over it!

    I'm nearly better now and so want to focus a lot more on my blog. I feel a bit out of the loop and so want to catch up with a lot of blogs and to start posting more!
    I haven't bought anything this past month so neeeed to get out there and do some Christmas shopping, I love Everything about Christmas and so cannot WAIT to get out there and see the Christmas lights and Decorations... Tis the season!
