If I had a world of my own everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is because everything would be what it isn't.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Well Heeey Fellow Bloggers, apologies for my absence these past couple of months, to say I've been gone a while is a bit of an understatement. I've just been quite busy lately, travelling abroad, moving in and out, starting University, getting a new job etc. Anyhoo now that I have settled I am officially back and feeling rather festive. 

According to my count down to Christmas app it is 42 days, 11 hours and 59 minutes till Christmas woo.
Christmas is such a magical time and of course I turn into a total kid around Christmas. Santa is coming because he IS real. 
Here are some things that bring me my Christmas Spirit because of course nothing says Christmas like...

Red Cups at Starbucks. Cant get enough of the Toffee Nut Latte. Yummy.

 Oxford Street lights

 Selfridges Window Display

 Trafalgar Square Tree

 Winter Wonderland

 Advent Calendar



 Classic Christmas Carols - Jingle Bells

 Santa and Reindeer


 Christmas Dinner



Nativity, It's all about Jesus of course

50 Shades of Dior

So my sister recently purchased me some Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss lip gloss in Flash 756 which I am so grateful for and cant believe I didn't get it myself sooner. This is by far one of the best lip glosses I have ever used. In just one swipe it transforms my dull lifeless lips into a shiny and voluminous pout that lasts for hours. Its ultra light formula means you won't feel like you have anything on your lips plus the shine is so intense you don't need to layer it as there is nothing worse then heavy sticky lip gloss on your lips. This just goes to show quality really is better then quantity, it's better to invest in a good high end product that will give you amazing results then spend less money on loads of mediocre products that will give you average results.

30 Day Squat Challenge

So I've been recently reading up on the 30 Day Squat Challenge as It's getting close to summer and there's nothing I want more then a toned lean body with a flat stomache and a perky butt. Apparently this works wonders, I'm onto day 2 now and can already feel like its slowly starting to work. Ass like Iggy Azalea here I come. I am combining this challenge with the 2 litres of water a day challenge as thats also another good way to loose weight faaast as it flushes bad toxins out of your body.

No one wears it better then Millie Mackintosh so classy and elegant and also in expensive as most of these pieces can be brought on the high street. I'm over Serena Van Der Woodsen a trip to Millie Mackintosh's wardrobe is just what I need

Secret to a faster metabolism


Screw all those celebrity diets that claim you can lose mountains of weight in weeks personally It's all a load of garbage to me. My secret to speeding up my metabolism and loosing weight has been drinking 3-4 cups of Green Tea a day. The reason why Green Tea is great to include in your diet if you're trying to drop a few pounds is because it is a natural laxative meaning you end up going to the toilet more frequently and not only that but it's also an appetite suppressant which means it gets rid of your cravings for food so you can avoid the snack attack and eat a whole lot less keeping those unwanted calories at bay. My favourite brand of Green Tea is Twinings as it gives a pure and natural light refreshing taste. To enjoy the taste of Green Tea and avoid it tasting bitter don't boil the water all the way as this will burn the tea and make sure to only leave the bag in for 1-2 minutes.

Babyliss Pro Twisted Twin Barrel Tong Review

I'm in hair heaven!! recently received these as a Secret Santa gift from my friend, she knows me well as I actually had twin barrels on my wish list so was over the mooon when I unwrapped my present to find these.  I am obsessed when it comes to curling my hair but there is nothing I hate more then neat bridal looking curls, the messier the beachier the more effortless they look the better - think Serena Van Der Woodsen from Gossip Girl her hair looks like she just rolled right out of bed, I mean that in a good way. They allow me to achieve those desired S shaped curls everyone is raving on about. It's a step up from curling my hair with GHD Straighteners. 

Retail price I think is around £30-£40 which is cheap considering the quality of the tongs as well as the curls. 7 temperature settings means that they are suitable for any hair type meaning Synthetic - Afro hair. I love the fact that they also come with a complimentary heat resistant mat meaning I don't have to watch the surface I'm working on as I can simply lie them on the mat. 

They look scary to use but the whole going in a figure of 8 motion really becomes second nature. 

A Great hair tutorial to watch, if you want to know how to use these because this was exactly how I learnt, is Fleur De Force's 'Summer Waves with a Twist'

They're not the same Twin Barrel Tongs as mine but this will just give you a general idea of how to use them and what look you can achieve. Will definitely be a favourite look for the upcoming Spring/Summer

Chanel VS Barry M - Nail Polish Dupes

Though I do love a good trip to the Chanel counter as there is just certain makeup the drugstore isn't cut out for like the Chanel Vitalumiere foundation, I'm never going back, when it comes to nail polish however why spend a costly £20 for a bottle when there is a cheaper alternative of £2.95 or better yet a bargain 2 for £5. No one would be able to tell the difference. Of course if you do come across a shade that is so gorgeous and unique then £20 is worth the investment. As I am quality over quantity I am impressed with Barry M because not only are they cheap their nail polish is thick and comes out opaque rather then runny, thin and translucent.

Barry M 305 Pink Flamingo makes a perfect alternative to...

Chanel 571 Fracas 

Feeling peachy? opt for Barry M 318 Peach Melba as opposed to...

Chanel 515 Peche Nacree 

Think Pink in Barry M 272 Shocking Pink 

Chanel 519 Rose Exuberant 

Feeling Fresh? Barry M 304 Mint Green VS...

Chanel 407 Jade 

Capture the Spring with Barry M 308 Berry Ice Cream VS...

Chanel 210 Lilac Sky 

Barry M 317 Blue Moon best dupe by far as not only is the colour identical it also manages to include the light pearly blue shimmer as seen by...

Chanel Riva 

Feeling Vampy? then try out Barry M 115 Red Black even the name is a translation of...

Chanel 18 Rouge Noir
