Life: 2015 In Photo's

As 2015 is coming to an end I felt it would be good for me to look back at 2015, a year which has found me coming out of my comfort zone to spend my Summer in the USA working as a Summer Camp Counselor. Something I'd have never thought I'd be doing this year and I'm so so glad that I had the opportunity to do so. If you want to know more about my Summer Camp experience you can read my full post here.

Aside from working at Summer Camp I have been able to do so many other incredible things this year including; enjoying a trip to London with my lovely Mum,celebrating my 21st Birthday (full post here), going to gigs (you can read my post about the Kaiser Chiefs gig here), attending my first ever blogger event (full post here) and spending time with my lovely friends and family.

What I Got For Christmas (2015)

Hi lovelies, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas?

I know that 'what I got for Christmas' posts are quite controversial in the blogging world, with some us loving them and others hating them. Personally I really enjoy reading these kind of posts and hearing about what lovely gifts people received for Christmas, so I thought I'd give you a peek at some of the gifts I was lucky enough to receive this Christmas. 

There's nothing I like more at the end of the day than having a long soak in the bath and having a pamper with a face mask. I was lucky enough to receive two LUSH giftsets will be perfect for my pamper nights -the LUSH Merry Christmas Giftbox, the LUSH Little Snow Fairy Giftbox are filled with some of my favourite festive LUSH products and I can't wait to start using them. I also received the Soap And Glory Bright and Bubbly Giftset from one of my lovely friends which is filled with some of my favourite Soap And Glory skincare products (oh and I love the packaging so much). I also received the Montagne Jeunesse Chocaholic Delight Facemask pamper pack which is filled with 5 face masks and the Zoella Beauty Foam Sweet Foam Showergel which smells lovely.

Merry Christmas!

Hi lovelies,
Just a very quick post to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and to thank each and everyone of you who has followed,read and/or commented on my blog this year. I know I'm still a very small fish in a huge pond but knowing that at least one person reads my blog (Hi Mum haha) makes me so happy.
Things will be a little quieter on my blog for a little while as I'm taking a little bit of a break from blogging  so that I can spend time with my lovely family and make the most of the few days I have off from my full-time job.

Thank you for reading,

Beauty: A Collective Haul

Throughout the past couple of months I've treated myself to a few new beauty products, which I've realised I've never actually shown on my blog. So I decided to grab hold of them and pop them together in a collective haul post.
Beauty Haul
A couple of months ago Debenhams had their 10% off beauty event, so I felt that this was the perfect time for me to treat myself the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette, which I really should've purchased before now as it has so many amazing shades in it. I also needed a new foundation so I decided to buy MAC Studio Fix Fluid in the shade 'NW20'. I've been using this product for a while now,so I'll probably put up a full review soon.

Beauty: Empties #4

It's been a while since I last shared an empties post. As I've mentioned before they're one of my favourite posts to write (and read) so I've decided to share another one. 
Empties #6
Imperial Leather Marshmallow Shower Cream is a product from Imperial Leather's recently released Sweet range. If you like sweet smelling bath products then this is definitely one to try, it smells lovely, There's not much else to say really except this product does exactly what it needs to do and it's very budget friendly - I believe a bottle can be picked up for less than £2 (although it can usually be found on offer too). I'm likely to repurchase this product in the future.

Whilst I was in America I purchased an Origins sample size kit which contained Origins GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturizer, a product that has become one of my skincare staples. I've recently been using this product on a daily basis to help to hydrate and revitalize my skin. This product doesn't feel heavy on my skin and soaks in fairly quickly, which is perfect for me. As my sample size version is now empty I've now purchased the full size version.

Life: The Leeds Xmas Meet

Last Saturday afternoon I attended my first ever blogging event - The Leeds Xmas Meet.
The event was organised by the lovely Rhianna from robowecop.com and took place at a lovely little pub called Black Swan, right in the heart of Leeds City Centre.
As this was the first blogging event I'd ever attended I was pretty nervous about speaking to people, so I didn't  speak to as many people as I'd have liked to. I did pluck up the courage to speak to a couple of bloggers though (Laura,Kirsty and Serena) who were all super lovely.

During the event there was chance to sit and chat, decorate your own Christmas cupcakes (see my attempt below) in the cupcake decorating competition,take Christmassy selfies at the selfie station or mingle and grab a drink from the bar. There was also a best dressed competition running during the event, which was won by Lucy and rightly so, her Christmas tree inspired outfit was incredible!

Review: Barry M 'Sparkling Ruby' Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paint

I love all things sparkly at this time of the year and I have found THE perfect nail polish for the festive season in the form of Barry M's 'Sparkling Ruby' Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paint.

'Sparkling Ruby' is a stunning vibrant red shade with some added Christmas shimmer and sparkle.  Being one of Barry M's Gelly Hi Shine formulas this nail polish is a little bit thicker than regular nail polish, however I still find it to be pretty easy to work with and it provides a lovely smooth application.

Life: My 21st Birthday

This may not be the most interesting post for you to read, but it's one that I really want to share as I celebrated my 21st Birthday last weekend and I had such a wonderful day that I want to share some of that with you (and also give another massive thank you to everyone who made it so special). 

 To mark my milestone Birthday I'm aiming to do 21 things in my 21st year, although rather than trying to cram everything together I've given myself from June this year to June next year to try and complete my list (I know that some of that time frame is technically not my 21st year.. but we'll roll with it anyway).

Beauty: Tanya Burr Cosmetics 'Deck The Hauls' Advent Calendar

Happy December lovelies!

There seems to be more beauty advent calendars on sale this year than in previous years. Whilst this is good news for all of us beauty lovers, it also meant that it was a little bit trickier for me to decide which one to buy myself. After narrowing down my choices (based mainly on price and which I believed to be the best value for money) I decided to buy the Tanya Burr Cosmetics Deck The Hauls Advent Calendar.
