Christmas Day & My First Blue Box

The Christmas period is filled with love, family, laughter, kindness, giving, very bad cracker jokes and food… lots of food !! The saying "eyes bigger than my belly" definitely comes to mind, haha.

It is half one on the day after boxing day and I'm still currently in my new pyjamas recovering from a food coma !! All I can say is that I'm certainly looking forward to starting off 2015 healthily.

Aside from my actual age being 15, the 5 year old inside of me always pays a visit during christmas. I started off the morning waking up at 5:30 am to then wake my little brother (who is 8 years younger than me) up so we could open up our stockings that 'father christmas' left us. So 20 minutes later we were all three meters deep in wrapping paper and presents and begging to go down downstairs to see if 'father christmas' left us the 'main presents'. Which he did. 

I got my first 'blue box' !! I'm so grateful for the Rubedo (rose gold) heart tag pendant necklace. I'm so in love with it. 

I was also lucky enough to get the Victoria Secret London 2014 robe, which I am also obsessed with. 

I am so grateful for all my other presents, especially one… 

My grandma got my tickets to attend LONDON FASHION WEEKEND !!!! How cool !! The minute I saw it my mind already started planning my outfit. eeekkk, my smile is identical to the cheshire cats right now !!

Im also so thankful for the family I got the spend Christmas and Boxing day with. 

I hope everyone had a wonderful christmas filled with laughter and happiness.

Christmas Kisses,

Benefit Cosmetics Christmas Tin ( a.k.a the perfect christmas present)

For my birthday (a couple of months ago) I got some benefit cosmetics vouchers. I knew what I wanted to purchase with them yet have just had no time to go to the shop. So when I went to my local benefit cosmetics boutique today I went in and selected what I wanted to buy on the shelfs, yet the lady working there stopped me and told me to look at a christmas deal which would give me a couple more products for less money !!

I got a full size 'hoola bronzer', a full size 'high beam' highlighter then a mini 'they're real' mascara, the 'pore sessional' balm and the 'hoola' lipgloss for £39.50 rather than spending £43 on just the bronzer and highlighter. It was a pretty good deal - if I do say so myself. 

I was so happy with my purchase I just knew I had to share it with you guys, as I knew it was the perfect christmas present and thought it might give the people loosing there mind for ideas some inspiration, hehe. 

Anyway, how crazy fast is december going !! Normal in december I'm coating down the days as they slowly drag by, ye this year I can't seem ti keep track of the days. 

Has everyone made there christmas Lists now ? What are you guys asking Santa for ? 

Im also hoping everyone is listening to christmas music obnoxiously loud, I mean.. I am. haha.

Green Tea, Vogue and Me Turns 1 !!

1 whole year. 12 months. 52 weeks. 365 days. 

It's crazy to think I've been blogging for a year now, yet, its even crazier to think of just how fast this 'year of blogging' has sped by. 

I love how even after a year, writing a blog post doesn't feel like a chore. I always feel so excited to share the newest pieces to my wardrobe with you guys, my recent favourites, my style crushes and so on…  

I lay in bed planning outfits, thinking of how I can style a new trend, sometimes designing a complete fashion show. Is that just me? Or is it the same in the mind of every 'fashion enthusiast'? 

Anyway, I would just like to say how thankful I am for every comment, every view and how much your kind words put a smile on my face. 

I'm currently sitting here writing this with a… you guessed it, a green tea. haha.

It's been an amazing blog year filled with, well, fashion. I hope to grow as a writer, blogger and designer in the years to come. I hope you will all be joining me in my future adventures.
