Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree...

I thought I'd share my Christmas tree with you as I love, love, love decorating them!
Seriously..I could do it as a full time job!
We put our tree & decorations up the first Sunday in December.
I personally love to theme with every holiday & Christmas to me is the most beautiful one to decorate, If you have such pretty decorations that are hidden in boxes in the loft all year why wait till the last minute to put them out?!

We buy new ornaments every year to add to our ever growing collection, so this year when I went to a local garden centre to admire all the gorgeous decor I got a two Deer ornaments, they are so cute and sit perfectly in the tree...along with Robins, Peacocks, berries, gingerbread men, bird nests, bows, cinnamon sticks...the list goes on & on!
Here's a couple of pictures for you...

What type of decorations do you like?
Hope you all having a great Christmas so far! :)

Winter skin savior!

Hi everyone, I recently purchased two items from Superdrug Vitamin E range & let me tell you these two items have been a life saver!
I got SPF15 radiance moisture cream, which contains light reflective pigments to give an instant healthy glow, I have been using this in the morning & it's great under foundation!
The glow is very subtle which I like. I don't think there's anything worse than huge chunky bits of glitter smeared across your face under the harsh lights of your local Tesco!
It sinks in quickly leaving a soft and glowy base for your foundation and smells of coconut!

The other item I got which I love is there Skin oil.
Now I have been using this every night for the past week and I have definitely noticed a difference, I apply it all over my neck, any dry patches (which is currently my nose) & any scarring or blemishes. I had slight scarring on my cheeks and I have definitely noticed a difference!
This is definitely a product that I will be getting again!

Have you tried any of the Vitamin E range?

Hi Everyone, I thought I'd share with you some beaded bracelets I have been making & selling for the past few months!
I've had a lovely response so far & a few of my male friends regularly sport their SparrowBeads on our nights out! A few of my friends have also bought them for there boyfriends birthdays etc. They are perfect stocking fillers too!
As I am writing this I am actually wearing the blue peace charm bracelet!
I also sell women's bracelets but any design you see is unisex!

Skull scarf

I got this scarf a few months back in Primark for £3! I love it & it keeps you so warm! The black and light beige tone work well with allot of outfits and the skulls keep it edgy.

What scarf styles have you been loving recently?

It's beginning to smell alot like Christmas...

Hi Dolls, I know I haven't blogged in a while, I was suffering from bloggers block! But I'm back & have lots of posts lined up and ready to go!
As we hit December it has become a tradion for me to buy my "Christmas candle" it has to be either mulled wine or cinnamon!
Today I bought Air Wick Ribbon scent touch of luxury candle in Mulled wine & cinnamon apple! is gorgeous! I have had it burning for about 15-20 minutes and the aroma of Christmas day has already filled the air!

I am in love with my silver voltive glass candle holders, they are so pretty! Just looking at this picture makes me feel all warm & cosy!

Are you a candle lover like me? Whats your favourite Christmas scent? :)
