Sharing Saturday: Online advent calendars

  Yep, another advent calendar sharing saturday. The last one I promise and probably the most exciting one because I’m introducing you into the world of online advent calendar competitions – which are free to enter! I enter them every year and for the past couple of years have won several prizes. They’re great fun, a tad bit addictive and easy to take part in. There’s so many that I’m not going to list them, I’m just going to explain the types of competitions and then give you some sites where fabulous people have listed all the advent competitions they find.   Type of AdventRead More →

Sharing Saturday: Alternate Advent Calendars - Beauty

  I love advent calendars, however, opening little doors just for a tiny bit of chocolate isn’t as appealing as it once was. I’ve been doing online advent calendars (I’ll introduce you to some at the beginning of December when they open!) for several years now, and last year I came across beauty advent calendars!

So over the next few weeks I’m going to be posting the best ones I can find, starting last week with food and drink calendars. This week it’s time toRead More →

I want you guys to pick one of these palettes and I’m going to make not one, but five looks from it and post tutorials up for them. So check out the pictures below to get a closer look at each palette and then comment with your choice! The oneRead More →

Nails so far 2016

As March draws to a close I’ve been struggling to come up with something for this months Look Book so I apologise for this months one being somewhat duller than planned. March has been a difficult month and the last few weeks have been filled with assignment deadlines so I’m doing something very simple; showcasing my nails so far. I’ve been working my way through the 48 nail polishes I got at Christmas which are showcased here. The last one was a break away from the set of nail polishes because I got this absolutely gorgeous polish (and another one in green) for Easter 😀Read More →
