My Christmas Gift Guide!!

Hi Guys,

Welcome to the first of my Christmas posts! I'm already ridiculously excited and there is still 29 days to go! Today I'm going to be giving my gift suggestions for anyone who needs help with their gift giving. Obviously, Christmas isn't all about the presents but it's always nice to give someone a gift that you know they will love! That was a super long intro so lets get into the actual post!

£5 or less...

1) Sleek Mini Matte Me 4 set: I have this on my list because this set looks amazing! For anyone who doesn't know, liquid lipsticks are meant to be the next 'thing' (Thanks to Kylie Jenner) so these are perfect for the makeup lover in your life! The only thing I will say is that they have been sold out online and are impossible to find in store. Let's just hope that they get restocked soon!

2)Impulse Body Spray Mini Cracker Gift Set- Rock and Love, Why Not and Very Pink are all included in this adorable set. The best part about it is that it is currently on offer for £4. Things like this are always great to split up to make a gift basket, too, so head over for Superdrug to find loads more like this! 

3) Arcatia Mechanical Pen- Paperchase have a whole section on their website devoted to Christmas. There is even a section for gifts under £5! Who doesn't think that this pen is adorable? Finding presents for your stationary obsessed friend has never been easier!

£15 or less...

1) British Rose Beauty Bag- I have heard absolutely amazing things about this fragrance so when I saw it in store I knew that it had to been included! It comes with a hand cream, shower gel and body butter: all for £10. My other favourite scent is mango; if you aren't a rose fan, check that out!

2) Mindfulness Colouring Book- Colouring has blown up recently: it's not just for 3 years any more! I am the worst person ever at staying within the lines so whatever I colour normally ends up looking more I like a giant squiggle! Saying that, I do find the whole process very relaxing.  

3)PUSHEEN Paint Party Nail Collection- PUSHEEN is the cutest thing ever! I was having a browse of the M&S website when I came across this nail set. Not only are the coulours great, it's PUSHEEN themed! For anyone who isn't aware of PUSHEEN it's basically the cutest cat ever! 

20 or more...

1) Clinique 'Happy Couple' Christmas Gift Set- I'd never really been an expensive perfume person until earlier this year. 'Daisy' by Mark Jacobs was definitely a favourite, until I went back and smelt it last month and just didn't like it any more! I really love 'Happy Heart' because it reminds me of being on holiday! This set comes with a miniature of the perfume and a body lotion; all for £25!

2)Pale Blue Converse- Getting someone shoes for Christmas can be a big risk! You have to know there size, coulour preference and if they have ones that are similar! Saying that, it would be great to wake up to an unexpected pair of shoes under the tree! If you want to surprise someone close to you this year, get them these amazing Converse!

3) Too Faced Chocolate Bar Trio- I'm too cheap to buy myself one of these palettes, never mind three! They are all so beautiful! My favourite is definitely the bon bon but if you got this set you wouldn't have to pick! Although it would set you back £82.45 just imagine the beautiful Instagram shots you could get!

Congratulations, you have finally reached the end of this insanely long post. Double congratulations if you got through it all without buying anything: you have stronger will power than me! If you would like to give another gift, add me to our circles. It's completely free but means the world!


Thanks for Reading

November's Essay...

I haven't been feeling very well this month. I took my first day of school- in a few years- on Monday because of how bad it was. Physically, I had a cold. No, I'm not one of those people! (Side note...) It always irritates me when people have a bit of a sniffly nose and then take two weeks off from school. There's just no need! My moto is: have a bit of lemsip and get over it. I'll drag myself into school practically unconscious with a bus stuck in my side and still plaster a smile onto my face. This month, however, I finally admitted there was something wrong.

A day was spent under a blanket with Gossip Girl on. In the end I put 'After Laughter' on and woke up two hours later, confused, wondering why the music had stopped. Even though I felt awful the next day (I always get massive colds!), I went back into school. That day at home did me good though because it was nice to spend some time resting and not being stressed. That's something that I don't do …

A Zillenial on the Eighties...

Now, let's throw it back to the glorious year of 2004. Shrek 2 was hitting our screens, Jeremy Clarckson was hitting Piers Morgan in the face and Maria Julia Mantilla was being crowned 'Miss World' over in China. I, a bit closer to home, was enjoying the early years of life. However, across the sea 'Bowling for Soup' were releasing '1985': a bop that I would only come to appreciate about twelve years later. The song contains references to many pop-culture focal points that I have never understood... until now! It's time for me to explore the eighties! 

First off is 'Whitesnake'. For the past few years, I've thought that 'Whitesnake' was one person (a rapper or something? I don't know!) but it turns out that they're a band! The were a British hard rock band who rose to fame in the 80s, originally formed in 1977. Another band that I believed to be a single person was 'Blondie'. My friend recently went to see them, althou…
