Hello everyone, I hope you all had an amazing Christmas and got what you wanted. Today I'm going to be showing you what I got for Christmas, I am in no intention bragging but a few people asked to see it, and in my eyes Christmas is about spending time with your family. I am not going to show you everything I got but I'm going to show you some of my favourites that I got. 

Starting off with what my parents got me, my main present this year was Beats by Dr Dre headphones, I was not expecting them and I am so grateful. The sound quality is amazing and they are really comfortable to wear.

I then got the real techniques eye starter set by Samantha Chapman off YouTube, they are such good quality. I next got a guitar beginners book to help me learn the guitar. I love Harry Potter and I have seen all the films, so for Christmas I got the complete collectors edition of all the films and I can't wait to start watching these form the start after this.

 Everyone this year seems to have got the our moment perfume by One Direction and I can see why it smells amazing! I got the 50ml, it will last me so long, now I smell like one direction; who doesn't want that?

Ever since I got back from America I have been searching for Bath and Body Works products and my mum and dad got me some for Christmas, they got me the sea island cotton hand wash, the mahogany teakwood 3 wick candle; which smells just like Abercrombie and finally the leaves mason jar candle which smells like autumn. I then got the world famous neutrals palette by Benefit, it comes with four eye shadows and two cream shadows.

Winter Makeup Routine

Hello everyone, Today I'm going to share with you my winter makeup routine. All these products I have been using for a while and put together they work really well for winter, I love the way it turns out.

For base makeup I start off with the Revlon photo ready BB cream in the shade light, and blend it in with my hands, it gives me the coverage I need and covers up any redness. I then conceal my dark circles using my Maybelline fit me concealer in the shade 15 and apply it in a triangular shape under my eyes and blend it out, this really brightens up my eyes and makes them appear more awake. I then conceal any spots I have and blend it out. Then I powder my face to get rid of any shine using my eco tools powder brush. I will sometimes add blush, and it is usually my natural collection blush in peach melba, which gives a natural blush to your face, I apply it using my models own blush brush.

I then move onto my eyebrows, I start by brushing them out using an eyebrow brush. I then fill them in using my natural collection eye shadow duo in mocha/latte, I use the mocha shade with my ecotools flat eyeliner brush. Clear mascara makes a great brow setter, and it keeps my brows in place all day, I will lastly highlight my brow bone using the latte shade from the duo.

I love experimenting with eye shadow. I usually start with an eye shadow base, such as the Maybelline colour tattoo in barely branded. I will either wear it on its own or as a base. So I will then apply eye shadow, such as the mac eye shadow in all that glitters with my ecotools full eye shadow brush. Then to deepen up the look I will use the mac eye shadow in sable with a Topshop blending brush. I then line my lash line with the Rimmel scandal eyes liquid liner in black. Applying mascara is important and completes any look, I first use the Maybelline rocket volume express mascara and then layer it up with the Benefit volume express mascara and both of them together both thickens and lengths your lashes really well. 

Finally for lips I firstly use my lush bubble gum lip scrub, to prep them before applying lip balm. I then use my Maybelline baby lips in grapevine which is a deep berry colour, perfect for the time of year. Sometimes I will also add a gloss, mostly the Clinique gloss balm in raspberry or the dandelion lip gloss by benefit. That is my makeup routine but I don't wear this everyday but if I do this is genuinely wear this.

Hello everyone, Merry Christmas Eve! I asked on Instagram what you would like to see me post and a few of you said ootd's so that is what I'm bringing to you. This outfit is perfect for winter, they key is to layer which is what I have done here. The style of the outfit is preppy with an edge of vintage. I started off with a plain white collared tee from Topshop and layered that underneath a Harvard vintage sweater I picked up at Lily Vintage, which you can find on ASOS marketplace. Over the Harvard sweater I put on my denim jacket that I got from American Eagle, whilst in America. For bottoms I am wearing a pair of high-waisted treggings, which a mixture of leggings and trousers, they are super comfy and versatile. On my feet I have my trusted white high-top converse and under them I have a pair of white frilly socks from Topshop, both of these will go with any outfit. As for accessories I have on my reindeer necklace I picked up from and it is one of my favourite necklaces I own. I also have on my tartan scarf from Primark and I feel it really completes the outfit. This is one of my favourite outfits to wear at this time of year and I hope you like it too.
