I was inspired to try out this product by fashionista's range at superdrug after watching Dollybowbow's haul video. I went and picked myself up the baked eye shadow in cosmic, shade 1. I am extremely pleased with how soft the texture of the eye show is and how easy I've found it to apply. I think the price of £4.00 makes me love this product even more. The colours are all absolutely gorgeous and I am so looking forward to being able to test this out properly.

Pomanders are a fun, easy and cheap way of making your home look and smell festive. I make these every year because I know my family like receiving these. You can make them look however you want too by pricking single whole cloves into an orange (or other desired fruit).

Lavender Hot Chocolate: Winter Treats

Lavender Hot Chocolate
Since lavender is quite fragrant, adjust amount according to preference. For a creamier hot chocolate, a 1 to 1 ratio of dark to milk chocolate can be used. Makes 2 servings.
hot chocolate:
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 3 ounces dark chocolate (70% cacao)
  • 1 ounce milk chocolate
  • 1/4 teaspoon lavender buds
whipped cream:
  • 1/2 cup cold heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract or seeds from 1/4 of a whole vanilla bean pod
  • 1/2 tablespoon granulated white sugar
For whipped cream, place cold cream, vanilla, and sugar into a cold mixing bowl. Beat the mixture with a whisk or mixer until stiff peaks form. keep refrigerated until ready for use.
For hot chocolate, heat milk and lavender over medium heat, whisking occasionally until the milk begins to simmer. Remove from heat and let lavender steep for 5 minutes. Strain lavender and return milk to saucepan. Over medium heat, add chocolate and mix until chocolate is melted and incorporated. Whisk milk mixture for 10-20 seconds until frothy. Pour into mugs or bowls and serve with a dollop of whipped cream.

Nasty Gal

Absolutely adore everything on the Nasty Gal website at the moment. Regardless of them being an American company, they give various different currency options and have also put up some fabulous sale items. I gathered together a few picture's of my favourite outfits of which I am lusting over completely! Gonna have to get some serious saving on the go!

Today I went shopping up town, as I've been in need of a cheeky little retail therapy for a while. Although, ended up buying nothing I intentionally wanted to get. Here's some of the things I brought

Purchased these earrings simply because I wanted a change of stud in my helix. £1.60- Forever 21
Saw this necklace and wasn't sure whether I loved it or hated it. I figured it'd look really cute over a chunky knit sweater. £3.90- Forever 21
I am a sucker for chunky earrings at the moment, and literally had to buy these when I saw them. £3.15- Forever 21
 Totally a scarf person and saw one really similar in Urban Outfitters quite recently. When I saw the price of this I couldn't not buy it. Absolute bargain! £8.90- Forever 21
 Again, I have been lusting over the Alexander Mcqueen version of this scarf forever! Although I cannot yet justify spending £245 on a scarf, so I went for the less nicer, more affordable. £3.99- Oasis market

I hope you enjoyed this post, let me know!

Rabbiting on

"We could rabbit on about our old favourite for hours. Let's just say it leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth, just like our original one."- The body shop.
If you like me, find your skin drying out quite quickly, it's always good to have a moisturiser that let's face it, works. This is the perfect product, it's thick texture leaves your skin feeling gorgeous. I will religiously use this product, I'm not sure I could fault it.
