The Pryer/Adams Christmas Special Vlog

Hello everyone!

I hope you all had an amazing Christmas Day and Boxing Day this week! I had a great two days with my family and like last year, I tried to vlog the entire thing! Over the two days I managed to get a good thirty to forty minutes of footage, but the below video is nicely condensed into twenty minutes!

If you manage to get to the end of it, I hope you enjoyed it! Also, please subscribe to my channel if you enjoyed it :)

Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

A Christmas Tag #2

Hello everyone!

I done this tag last Christmas Eve, so have decided to do it once again for this year! It's only a few more days until Christmas, and I am so excited! If you want to do this yourself, then please do! Here it goes... Also, if there is a * before the answer, it means it hasn't changed since last year!

What is your fave Christmas Song?
The Waitresses - Christmas Wrapping (or The Saturdays version which I LOVE)

What is your fave Christmas drink?
I don't like warm drinks at all, but I class Scholer as a 'Christmassy' Drink, so that!

What is your fave Christmas film?
The Home Alone movies!

What is your fave Christmas outfit?
*Anything warm and comfortable! We have Christmas at my Aunt's house and it's always cold into the evening, so I have to wrap up warm or I get ever so cold!

What is the best part of Christmas dinner?
*The stuffing and the potatoes!

What is your fave thing about Christmas?
*Seeing all my family for both Christmas day and Boxing day as I don't get to see them much during the year.

What is your fave Christmas food?
Cadbury Snowballs. Nom.

Do you love or loathe wrapping presents?
If it's a rectangular shape, then I love it... If it's round like something I bought a friend once, then no!

What is your best Christmas memory?
I think the year when we'd all just sat down for dinner and my Aunty sat on her chair and fell through it! Even now that makes me laugh so hard that I ache! Add onto that, anything where me and cousins start doing weird dances or the fireworks we have :)

What is your fave part of Christmas day?
Seeing the reactions to gifts that I've bought for people!

I hope you all have the most wonderful Christmas on Thursday and that no matter where in the world you are, that you have fun and don't forget to keep safe :)

W7 In The Nude Palette

Hello everyone!

As you may know, I am a love of Fragrance Direct! Always good for a bargain, I picked up this W7 In The Nude Palette a few weeks ago and I totally love it. It's a little bit like the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette I think - or at least from comparison pictures!

You can pick this beauty up for £4.99 at the moment, and it is really worth the money. You get 12 beautiful shades, six of which are matte and the other 6 are shimmery. My picture taking skills of this are crap, so apologies for that!

Sunkissed and Coffee Cup are my faves from them all, and the shades all blend so well together that it has made doing smokey eyes so much easier. It comes with it's own brush applicator, but I've been using my Real Technique brushes instead as I found them easier to use.

For the price and quality of this, I really recommend this if you don't want to splurge on the Urban Decay ones.

Have you tried this? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

Tanya Burr Little Duck | Review

Hello everyone!

If you didn't already know, I'm a lover of Tanya Burr's nail polishes. When I saw Tanya was bringing out her Lips and Nails collection, I was very happy and excited to get my hands on some of the polishes. This is the third one that I've got from the range and I just love the shade! It's a lovely mint green, and you can pick it up from Superdrug for £3.99 (currently on offer, originally £5.99.)

Sorry it's blurred!

The picture above is only one coat of the polish, but it looks a lot better with two for this shade as it is a little opaque. Again, like the others in the range, the only thing I'm not a massive lover of is the brush handle as the square shape made it a little tricky to hold comfortably. But that is just a personal preference and doesn't affect the products itself!

The shade is lovely and I plan on wearing a lot after Christmas!

 Have you tried any of Tanya's products and what did you think of them? Let me know below. Have a great day and keep safe :)

Seventeen Lip Crayon Review

Hello everyone!

Another product I won from Kirstie's giveaway months ago, was this Seventeen Lip Crayon. I don't know what shade this is due to there not being a sticker on it! I think it could be 'Playful,' but I'm not 100% sure! Currently £2.49 in Boots, this is a pretty nice lip product considering I'm not a huge lip product lover!

It is a shimmery deep pink shade, and is very bright. Not the best look for me - a person of a very pale skin tone! I've never used a lip crayon before, so wasn't quite sure how to apply it without smearing it everywhere, but the overall look wasn't too bad. However I won't wear it again as I don't feel the colour suited me, even though it it is gorgeous!!

Have you tried this shade at all (also what is it called?!?) Plus, do you prefer lip crayons or lipsticks on general? Hope you have a great day and keep safe!

Playboy: Pin It Up Perfume Set Review

Hello everyone!

If you didn't already know, my fave brand for perfumes is Playboy. I'm a devout user of their Play It Rock perfume, which has been my fave perfume for the past seven years. They used to have a load more that I tried and liked, but I can't remember the names of them! However the other day while buying my Play It Rock off of Fragrance Direct, I decided to get another Playboy one that I had yet to try and this is what I chose.

Pin It Up retails at £5.99 on the site and comes in a beautiful box, which has a quilted texture and pattern to it. This is the 30ml bottle and 30ml spray, with the usual bunny ears bottle top design on the bottler- like as the other perfumes from the brand. The perfume is clear, except it has a slight pink-ish hue to it. Here is my terrible description of the scent ~ It is flowery with a slight 'spicy' hint to it, and I love it! Not helpful at all, but it has a nice lasting scent and I only had to put it on twice in a day for it to last.

Have you tried any Playboy perfumes and what did you think? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

Things To Do By 2015

Hello everyone!

Like last year, the coming new year is approaching fast and I have a list of things I'd like to get done or achieve before then! Last year there were 25 things, so lets see if I can keep it below that!

  1. Finish Zoella's book 'Girl Online'
  2. Reach 450 bloglovin readers 
  3. Re-tax my car
  4. Sort out 40 issues of my Marvel factfiles into the correct folders
  5. Finish Christmas shopping
  6. See my little group of friends at least once more before Christmas/New Year's
  7. Try to go on a spending ban
  8. Try and persuade my manager to let me keep my full time hours at work once Christmas is over
  9. Clean out clothes, shoes and bags
  10. Clean out bedroom
  11. Clean the whole house
  12. Start reading 'A Feast With Crows' from the ASOIAF series
  13. Get calendars and diaries ready for the new year
  14. Learn at least 5 more words in Japanese
  15. Wash my car
  16. Have a hair cut

So 16 things I'd like to get done and achieve by the time 2015 rolls around! Most are doable, and others may take a little longer! And like last year, I'll cross these out when I do them!

Are there any things you would like to do before the new year hits in a matter of weeks? Hope you all have a great Wednesday and stay safe :)
