Happy December!

Finally December is here and it becomes socially acceptable to talk about Christmas yay!

This is by far my most favourtie time of the year! I love everything about Christmas. I love all the decorations and the lights that cover peoples houses. I also actually enjoy Christmas shopping, I really like finding that present that you know will put a smile on their face when they open it on Christmas morning!

My Autumn favourites 2015!

Hey everyone, Anna here.

I know we have been away for a little while, sometimes life and things just get in the way! From now on I will be back to uploading as regularly as I can!

I hope you have been enjoying the change in the weather and all the beautiful things that this time of year brings! For me personally, I love the dark evenings and spending time all snuggled up indoors watching a good film.
I also love all things beauty that come with Autumn and thought I would share with you all the products that are getting me though!

Liz Earle Superskin Hand Serum
My hands always seem to bare the brunt of the cold weather and this product just saves the day. It really is unlike any other hand cream I have tried. The silky texture leaves my hands feeling soft and smooth without the greasy feeling some hand creams can leave. The smell isn’t the best but it is only going on my hands so it is something I can live with!

Soap and Glory The Righteous Butter
This product is also a autumn/winter essential for me. The cold weather can really do a number on your skin so I like to slather this on the minute I get out the shower. Enriched with Shea Butter and Aloe Vera, it really does sort out any dry patches that may be hanging around. It soaks into the skin like a dream so no need to be hanging around getting cold waiting for it to sink in!

Nuxe reve de miel lip balm

Along with the dark nights drawing in, lip colour also takes a dark turn. Sometimes I find darker colours can really dry out your lips so it is so important to get them hydrated. This product is a winner for me! It goes on nice and thick and instantly adds moisture to my lips. I love to use this just before I jump into bed or apply it a little while before I apply my lipstick.

Loreal Infallible Mega Gloss – Smoke me up
I absolutely love this colour! The silky smooth formula makes this a dream to put on and feels lovely on thew lips. The colour is a berry shade that looks perfect with a gold/bronze eye!

Nail Varnish


Rimmel Salon Pro – Urban Purple
Essie – Maxamillion Strasse Her
Salon Pro – Urban Purple
Nails Inc – Great Marlborough Street
As I do my lips, I love to mix my nail varnish up for this time of the year and these three colours are my current favs! I love the formula of all three of these polishes and seem to last a long time on my nails.

Benefit Blush – Dandelion
This blush looks lovely applied lightly to the apples of your cheeks, The dusky pink colour gives your cheeks a lovely glow, just like you have been outside in cold! Benefit blushes are one of the best in my opinion, they are always so nice to apply and last a pretty long time too!

I hope you have enjoyed reading through my autumn favourite’s and I am excited to finally get back into the swing of blogging again.

Speak to you all soon!
