Christmas Gifts Under £15!


Shock. Horror. A Christmas post!

Yes, I am aware that it's the middle of November, and I'm already going on about Christmas. I've pretty much done with my present shopping already (please don't hurt me!), but for those of you just starting to shop for friends and family, here are a few gift ideas for you.

I tend to get a few mini items for as gifts for my friends and family. May it be a little chocolate treat, something fun, or even a beauty item! All of these are under £15, so perfect if you are on a budget. The three shops I tend to search in the most, are Superdrug, Find Me A Gift, and La La Land, so go check them out if you're after something over £15.

Get your jingle bells ringing, and lets get started!

Find Me A Gift



Superdrug



La La Land



Hope this was helpful for you in some way, and let me know if you end up buying anything from them at all! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

Duvet Day Ideas


A duvet day isn't something I'm lucky to get a lot these days - but when I do, I barely leave my bed all day! Sometimes you just need to unwind a little bit, and being snuggled up in bed is a great way to do this! So, here is what I get up to on a duvet day, and hopefully you like these ideas as well!

Step One - Get into comfy clothes. This could be loose gym clothes, pyjamas, or even just underwear if you're feeling it! Then pick some of the below!

Movie marathon
I'm partial to re-watching as many of the Marvel movies as I can in one sitting! I've also managed to watch all of the Hobbit/Lord Of The Rings movies in one day before too. Haven't yet tried to do the extended ones... You can pick a theme for the day, such as rom-coms, Chris Evan's films, JJ Abrams directed films, etc.

Manicure and pedicure
This is so chilled out this little treat for yourself. You can even do this while doing the movie marathon. Just gather up some of your fave polishes and any tools you'll need, and spent an hour or so just perfecting your fingers and toes!

Blog writing and commenting
A lot of my duvet days feature me tucked in bed, with my laptop. I'll usually utilize this time to catch on up the blogs I want to read, and even will write up a few posts if I'm feeling it. Even if it's just drafting posts with titles for inspiration at a later date.

Sleep!
It's not a duvet day without a midday nap. I have a lovely soft brown blanket that I'll snuggle up in for a few hours - usually while the TV is playing to itself! This can make you feel so much better after a power nap - plus you might be in a mood to leave the bed and do something else productive for a few hours.

Netflix & junk food binge!
This is the one thing I do far too often on my days off! I'll get tucked in bed with copious amounts of junk food, and have RuPaul's Drag Race on a loop for the day. It's beyond relaxing, and so nice to have a day of doing practically nothing.


Hope you liked these ideas! What do you get up to for your duvet days? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

Fave Universal Resort Rides


The Universal Resort theme parks - Universal Stuidos and, Islands of Adventure - are probably my fave two theme parks in Orlando. I love Disney, but the Universal rides are just tailored to what I prefer, so perfectly!

The rides here are incredible, and though I couldn't get my camera on any of the rides, due to the metal detectors and no-bags policy on a lot of the rides, I just got to be in the moment and enjoy the rides. Here's a list of the ones I really enjoyed, and in no particular order.

Dr Doom's Fearfall

Harry Potter & The Forbidden Journey


Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit


The Incredible Hulk Coaster


Harry Potter & the Escape From Gringotts


Jurassic Park River Adventure


Dudley Do-Right's Rip Saw Falls

 
 All of these the rides that we went on, were AMAZING - but these are my top rides from both parks.

On Rip Saw Falls, we got so wet on it, that I was literally dripping water the entire way back to the car! Escape from Gringotts was so awesome, but the que time had jumped up to over an hour during the time we has queued for 10 minutes, went on the ride, and then came off of it. I usually hate ones like Dr Doom's Fearfall, as I don't like the feeling of plummeting to the ground like that - however, this wasn't as bad as I thought, as I actually really liked it!

What are your fave rides at Universal and Islands of Adventure? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

Autumn Skincare Essentials*


It's that time of year where it's getting colder, and the elements are hitting our skin hard. There are a few things you can do to help your skin during the colder season, and even switch to other makeup to help with skincare. Here are three ideas for skincare treats during this cold season!

The one thing we really need to protect is our faces. We can cover most of us with awesome scarves, gloves, hats and big coats - but our faces are out all the time in the cold! However, the Panasonic Facial Enhancer is a great product to combat this. With sonic vibration, warm-to-cool technology, and the fact it can stimulate ions within the skin, means you can get the perfect clean and smooth face for autumn! It features an Ergonomic and hypoallergenic 3-in-1 titanium head - which means even my sister with her sensitive skin, can use this! I love the sleek design of this.


After you've used the Panasonic Facial Enhancer, you can moisturize however you want, and then get ready with makeup! The Enhancer will have left your skin super soft, so leaves you with a perfect base to put foundation on. To keep your skin feeling clean and light, try this MUA Hydro Foundation which I reviewed last year, which is super light on the skin, and will still leave you feeling refreshed!


Though I like to think our faces are the best thing to protect at this time of year, you might want to take into consideration your legs as well! Yes, we could all just grown out the hairs, but sometimes we have a fancy party to go to and we want to wear a dress! So with this Wilkinson Sword Razor which I reviewed last year, you can keep your legs silky smooth, and party dress ready!


What do you do to keep your skin feeling good through the autumn weather? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

Orlando Holiday Diary: Day 2 - Universal Studios


Day two kicked off at 5:35am for me! My dad and sister were awake for a few hours before I surfaced - yay for jet lag! We planned to go to Universal Studios for our first day, as it's not a massively big park, but there are plenty of rides for us to try out.

We all went on the Minions ride first, before I hurriedly marched them onto Rip Ride Rock It, before they had a chance to look up and see what the rollercoaster was like! We managed to do all of the park - other than the Harry Potter section, which we wanted to do on a separate day - within about five hours! Then we left the park and headed back to the villa to have a relaxing swim in the pool, as we all got so tired.

Hope you enjoy the pics from day two - and don't forget, the daily vlog is at the bottom if you'd rather watch that!






Matching tops!!

Pumpkins were all up for Halloween Horror Nights





Walmart pizza for dinner - yummy!!



Hope you enjoyed this little look at the second day of my awesome holiday! Can't wait to share with you the rest of the trip. If you've been to Florida, or want to go, what's something you'd like to do there? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)
