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!

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 →

Reviews so far 2016

February is nearly here and with it brings the official start of SPILL the beans, my new monthly blog content. Each month I’ll be posting at least 5 different topics which you can read more about in this entry. I’ve been preparing content for it, but in the mean time here’s a mini review of the nail polishes (introduced here) that I’ve tried so far.   I originally tried the purple one first on the right in this image. Unfortunately it seems that it had been either previously opened or never closed properly. It was a pain to open and when I finally got itRead More →
