FESTIVE CANDLE HAUL (VIDEO)

I love scented candles all year round, any time of the day but during the Christmas period I love them more than ever. I popped onto kringlecandle.co.uk (one of my favourite candle brands) the other week and treated myself to a few cosy fragrances.

BUTTERFLY TWISTS' CHRISTMAS WISHLIST

      *infographic by butterfly twist
Christmas is just around the corner and for me, panic has definitely kicked in along the present buying front. So, if you're in a similar position and need some last minute-ish ideas or even ideas on what to ask for, then hopefully this lovely christmas wish list (created by Butterfly Twist but written by yours truly) can give you a little helping hand.

PERFUME
Buying a fragrance for even your closet of friends/family can be difficult but if you pick the right one, most people would be very thankful. It's been tradition that my mum buys me a perfume for my birthday every year since I was a teen and I love that every time I use it, I think of her.

THE FIRST DATE TAG (VIDEO)

I was tagged by my lovely friend Marzia (CutiePieMarzia) to do the first date tag, so I sat down with a scrumptious spiced vanilla tea in my cosy jumper and answered some dating based questions.

STEP UP 5: ALL IN • GET THE LOOK

I've been asked to create a look inspired by Step Up 5: All In and as the Step Up films have always been a guilty pleasure of mine (who doesn't love a good old song and dance in their living room?), of course, I agreed to take on the task. I've kept the casual, off to rehearsals, laid back kind of vibes you see throughout the film but given it my own twist. It's slightly more practical for everyday wear and a tad warmer for those of you in cooler climates (just fling a scarf and coat on over the top for extra warmth).

MY DVD COLLECTION (VIDEO)

I share almost everything in my life through the wonderful world of blogging/vlogging and something I get asked to share on a regular basis is my dvd collection. So, you guessed it, I finally decided to show you my whole dvd and boxset collection including some of my all time favourites.

WEEK IN PHOTOS NO.88

It's been an interesting week; one day I was in my wellies searching for mine and Douglas' Christmas tree to reserve and collect next month and another day I was in London just chilling out with McBusted. As you do. It's been a good week though and I'm looking forward to get a little more festive next week because it'll be December and it's now socially acceptable to.
winter is on it's way • a cold and rainy sunday afternoon calls for my trustee tartan scarf (buy here) • picking out a christmas tree with doug's family and finally got to wear my hunters (buy here)

EMPTIES #7 • LUSH & THE BODY SHOP (VIDEO)

When your boyfriend tells you to do something about all the empty pots (particularly the black Lush pots) that he keeps knocking over in the bathroom, it's about time to film another empties video. I discuss some of my holy grail products as well as some new found favourites.
