Weekend trip to London!

Happy Friday Everyone!

Hopefully you've all had a fantastic week and are all looking forward to the weekend and possibly doing the rest of your Christmas shopping ready for next week (only 9 more sleeps!)

I'm writing to you all from London this evening, my family has decided to go on another last minute trip to this buzzing city for some Christmas shopping and for a lovely, sort of relaxing break!

I arrived this afternoon and we're staying at the St. Regis Lanesborough Hotel, it's absolutely beautiful and looking out our windows you can see all the busy traffic and beautiful Christmas lights everywhere, it's so magical! My mum and me went out shopping earlier and Oxford Street looks absolutely amazing, there are so many lights everywhere you look and the shops are covered in twinkling lights. We went to Selfridges and saw Jermain Jackson in the restaurant!!

I'll post some photos when I get back home but for now, I hope you all have a lovely weekend and will post to you all again soon!

NYX Eyebrow Kit & Urban Decay Mascara Review & Video

I hope you've all had a good week so far and there's only 10 days until Christmas!

Yesterday I made a new video - my first proper video - which was a review of the NYX Eyebrow Kit with Stencil and Urban Decay Cannonball Mascara both of which I bought myself last week.

First of all, I want to start off with that I love both of them, they're both brilliant products and as I'll explain below in more detail, are fantastic at creating any look which you want to suit your style.

So to begin with, I'll talk about the NYX Eyebrow Kit with Stencil.
It's a very simple kit which includes 3 Plastics stencils one small, one medium and one large so you can choose a size which suits the size and shape of your eyebrows. It also includes 4 shades of powder, one angular brush which you will use to apply the powder to your eyebrows and a eyebrow brush and comb to shape them.
The kit also includes detailed instructions on how to use the product on the inside of the box which are really simple to follow and for me as someone who has never used a product like this before, I created a defined, professional look within 2 minutes of opening the pack!

You can purchase your own Kit from the NYX website and they do kits for Blondes, Brunettes and 'Everyone':
NYX Store
RRP: £13.50
Packaging of the Kit
The Mirror, Instructions, Powders, Tools and Stencils inside the Kit

Comb for Brushing/Shaping your Eyebrows

Angled Brush to apply Powder
(L-R) Large, Medium and Small Stencils

So, now I'll go onto the Urban Decay Ultra Waterproof 'Cannonball' Mascara. To begin with, it's in a lovely black tube with a green/turquoise metallic lid, it is quite a thin but dense, straight brush but still gives a good coating onto your eyelashes. It's ideal if you were wanting a tough mascara that you don't have to top up throughout the day and doesn't budge whilst swimming or in the gym!
As it says in the name, it is extremely waterproof and to help remove it without having to rub your eyes too hard, I would also reccommed buying a eye make-up remover which is made for remover tougher products or I've heard that baby oil can also work just as well!
There's not much more to say about it really other than it's extremely tough, lengthens, defines and leaves your lashes looking gorgeous all day long!

You can buy your own Cannonball Mascara from here:
RRP: £15.00
The lovely Mascara Tube
The Thin, Straight Wand
That's everything from me for now but I hope that this review has been useful to you, if you have any questions or want anymore information about either of these products then either comment below or follow me on twitter and you can ask me on there :)

A short break in Edinburgh, Scotland!

I hope you've all had a lovely week and weekend! I haven't posted for a while as my family decided to go on a last minute trip to Edinburgh for 3 days last week and it was lovely! We went to go find the snow and instead found 'Hurricane Bawbag' as many people chose to call it!! We went to Edinburgh city on Thursday and the rain and windy was horrendous. You couldn't walk in a straight line without being blow from one side of the street to the other and sadly the German Market and the Fair in the City Centre were closed due to the bad weather but we still got chance to look in some of the shops!

We stayed at The Roxburghe Hotel & Golf Course, it was absolutely beautiful, the food was amazing and so were the staff as well as the accommodation. The Hotel which was more of a stately home had spectacular dining rooms and lounges too but the rooms and suites were very modern and comfortable.
Below are a few photos which I've got from the hotels website and the link to book there is here.

All-in-all, it was a lovely break and I would love to go back and would reccommend it to anyone!

Only 3 more weeks until Christmas!

I'm such a child when it comes to Christmas. I absolutely love it!

I'm sorry that I haven't been blogging recently as I've been decorating the house, as soon as it's December the 1st, I always ask to get the decorations out, buy a tree and starting making the house 'Christmassy'!

We've got four different trees (3 artificial and 1 real) and one of them 'snows'! It's amazing and so effective. My dogs both have festive outfits and love opening presents with treats in on Christmas Day.

So not much longer now, I'll try get a video on this week, it will probably be a product review because I bought a NYX eye brow palette the other day and Urban Decay Cannonball Mascara so I'll try them out then let you know what I think!

I'll post photos of my Christmas decorations and dogs dressed up as soon as I can get my phone to connect to the computer!

Have a wonderful festive season!
