December favourites, the body shop, max factor golden rose, accessorize

It's that time of the month again when I round up my favourites from the last few weeks!

Essence the gel polish in wild white ways //  I had been looking for a white polish for the longest time and I was very happy when I finally found this. If you read my Christmas nail art post you have already seen this as I used it as a base. It is very opaque even after one coat and only starts to chip after 4 days. The only thing that I don't like is that the formula is quite runny but despite that it doesn't take too long to dry.

Golden Rose lipstick in 124 //  This was more of an impulse buy and I kind of regretted buying it at first since it is so dark and I was not used to that. But I am glad that I did as I now love it and has been my festive lip go to! It is a beautiful dark plum shade with red undertones. Another thing that I love about it is the longevity as it stays put for about 4 or 5 hours and then evenly fades.

The Body Shop Strawberry Body Butter // Recently I have been having some really dry skin and this body butter has been a savior. This product is my all time favourite from The Body Shop and I have been using it for the last few years. I love the strawberry scent and the products leaves my skin hydrated and moisturized. 

Accessorize Gold bar Ear cuff // I was having a little browse at the shop when I saw this and it immediately caught me eye. I really like the design and adds a really nice touch to any look. 

Max Factor colour perfection eyeshadow in 425 Dawn Gold // Throughout the month of December I have been frequently reaching for this duo palette. It consists of two shimmering shades, one gold and the other bronze which I think are very suitable for the festive season and together create a lovely look.

Leather Look Camera Case // This was actually a Christmas present and I don't know if it qualifies as a December favourite but I thought that I would add it anyway. I just love it as it has a vintage feel with the leather looking case and the old looking hardware.

I hope that you liked my last post from 2015 and I actually can't believe that tomorrow will be 2016! 2015 was definitely a great year for my blog as I basically started it last January. I hope that 2016 will be even better and it will continue to grow. Happy New Year everyone!

Thanks for stopping by :)

Styling knit dresses, Sammydress review, knitwear

Knit dresses are a perfect addition to your winter and autumn wardrobe as they keep you warm while being stylish at the same time. Today I am showing you how I would style my favourite knit dresses from Sammydress.

Sammydress is a global online fashion retail company which aims to provide customers with high quality products at competitive low factory direct prices. When Sammydress contacted me I accepted immediately to work with them as they have a lovely selection of items ranging from clothing to accessories to beauty products.

I just love the colour and the style of this off-the-shoulder dress ($12.16). I think that this would look amazing with a gorgeous statements necklace, a clutch, a pair of nude or black heels and a faux fur coat. I think that this would be really nice for a party or even for celebrating New Year's Eve.

This cowl neck asymmetric dress ($11.25) is more for a casual day out with friends. I would add some thick black tights, some nice tall boots and a coat and you are ready to go.

I think that with this dress ($9.50) you can either dress it up or down. The shoulder cuts give it a different look and takes it from simple to edgy. You can either add a nice necklace like the one pictured and some heels or even wear some tights and boots like the second dress. I also love the orange version of this dress.

What do you think of knit dresses?

Christmas decorations, Christmas room decor

Hello! I love decorating as it gets me in the Christmas spirit. This year I really like how I decorated my room and I thought that I would share some photos with you.

My favourite decorated area has to be my bed and the little cupboard. I made the pillows myself last year and I love how they turned out. I also like the little Christmas lights because I love the design and they create such a lovely atmosphere when I turn them on at night.

Over my bed I have a garland were I hang some of my Christmas cards. I love this little Santa that sits on the edge of my shelves. My mum bought it for me last year and I think that it's so cute! On drawer handles I hung these little pillow hearts which I think go really well with the pillows. 

I would love to hear if you decorate your room and if you do what decorations do you use?

Thanks for stopping by :)
