New Year's Eve hair / how I curl my hair with ghds


With Christmas over and New Year now becoming the focus, I'm sure lots of us are already thinking about how we're going to celebrate and what kind of party look we want to go for.  I'm not great at up-dos at all, but really enjoy putting curls and waves in my hair to give me a look that says I made an effort!  ghd kindly sent me their platinum copper luxe premium gift set and challenged me to create a festive look with added sparkle, so I thought I'd take the opportunity to share my tips on how I use ghds to curl my hair.

Christmas shopping at London Designer Outlet


I love so many things about Christmas, but one particular highlight has to be that never ending excuse for festive shopping trips!  I recently did some Christmas shopping at London Designer Outlet in West London, and had a great time not only checking out the shops but also trying one of the lovely restaurants and even having a little spin on their ice rink!

Personalised Christmas gifts from ijustloveit.co.uk


Still struggling to fill those final gaps on your Christmas shopping list?  Don't worry, me too!  Especially when it comes to those annoying people that seem to have everything and say they don't 'need' anything for Christmas - it's just so tough to come up with new ideas every year.  Going for a personalised gift is sort of my secret weapon - it puts a new slant and angle on a gift to make it special with a name or a little in joke phrase and turns an ordinary gift into something really special.  I've found some great personalised items at I Just Love It again this year, and there's still time to order this weekend for Christmas delivery, so I hope these might inspire you with those tricky final gift selections.

YSL Christmas party beauty at Debenhams #foundit


Not that I ever need an excuse to get glammed up with beautiful makeup, but if I did, then a Christmas party would be top of the ideal occasions list.  Once the calendar flips to December my thoughts instantly turn to glitter, gold, sequins, red and all things similarly festive to turn up that special Christmas feel.  Debenhams and YSL have kindly provided me with a perfect selection of products to get me festive party ready, so read on to see how I got on with them...

Christmas gift guides 2016 - stocking fillers


Today's gift guide is stocking fillers, so mostly things that are under £15, with lots under £10 too.  I like to give people lots of unwrap - it always seems more fun than one large gift, and I love making up stockings, gift bags, gift baskets, the lot.  I just love Christmas really :)
