The Body Shop - The Glazed Apple Festive Range ♥

| *Glazed Apple Body Butter - £13.00 - Link | Glazed Apple Shower Gel - £4.00 - Link  | Glazed Apple Soap - £2.50 - Link |

When the new "Glazed Apple" range arrived, I had high hopes, like with most Body Shop products they are always strong smelling and I absolutely love using them while in the shower and afterwards - I'm not really a bath person these days so the products that were sent to me couldn't of been anymore perfect really.

"Glazed Apple" is a new seasonal range for November/December - make sure you pop it on your xmas list to santa - I already have.
Smelling of mouth watering glazed apple, you might end up accidentally want to eat this rather than use it, I know I almost did..... oops.
There are so many products available in this range so there is something for everyone from "The Glazed Apple Lip Balm" to "The Glazed Apple Bath Sprinkles" your sure to find something.
I have used all of these three products this month and I have literally fell in love, I hope they keep this range or bring it out every year.
 Myfavourite has been The Glazed Apple Body Butter, it smells a dream when I use it to moisturize after a shower, The Glazed Apple Shower Gel goes a long way too, you only need a small amount and it lathers up pretty well, a bottle of this would last you months.
I'm not a big lover of soaps so I've not used The Glazed Apple Soap as much as I hoped, I have however placed it in the sink though so the other half and guests can use it.

If you love the sound of this range, there are some fab Christmas pressies you can request this year below too including sets starting from just £15.00.

Have you tried tins range yet??

OOTD - What I Wore - Swing Dress ♥

| Dog Tooth Swing Dress - £28.00 - *Madam Rage - Link |

I'm off out to watch John Bishop tonight with my grandma. uncle and my hubby as an early xmas pressie to them so I thought I would pop up a quick OOTD, or OOTN should I say of what I am wearing tonight.
 My camera battery died before many photos were taken so I could only pop up a few but you can get the picture how lovely this dress is.
I recently got it sent to me from Madam Rage, I'm a fan of there dresses because I find they always look good on and they have so many unique styles and they always have amazing offers on.

What I love about this swing dress is that it is so versatile, it can be worn casually during the day/evening or dressed up with heels for a night out and the pattern is just lovely and so on trend at the minute - I wore my dress tonight with my new boots I purchased yesterday from Primark, if you have me on instagram - xxmrschaddertonxx -  you will be able to see the boots I bought.

Anyway I hope you have all had a nice weekend ??

What do you think of this dress??

Meet Little Luna ♥

We've had little Luna, Just over a month and two weeks now but it feels like we've had her forever now, she slotted into our household like a tiny jigsaw piece.
We'd been contemplating getting a new cat for over a year so when we got back off our holiday we decided after seeing way to many cute cats while away that Jimjam needed a friend, 4 years had been too long.
We were a bit apprehensive really, I didn't know how Jimjam was going to respond, he is quite a sociable cat and he also gets a lot of attention, throwing another cat in that equation is always a tricky one because of jealousy.

But we didn't have to worry to much - within a day they were sharing the same bed space, but I think its taken longer for him to be won over by her, she's a little persistent - like us girls are - and I think she has pretty much forced her way lovingly into his life by cosying up to him during nap time at every opportunity, that and the fact he gets dreamies when she's around.
They still have a squabble every now and again because Luna thinks jumping on his face is appropriate, but that's kittens for you.
She's a little over 4 months now and she's still tiiiiny, and an absolute devil.
But I'm glad we got her and completed our little furry family.

Next on the agenda hopefully will be real babies.....eventually.

How cute is she??

A/W14 Nails - My Top 6 Favourites £5.00 And Under ♥

 | From left to right | Seventeen Nail Varnish in Ruby Gem - £2.99 - Link | Barry M Gelly Effects in Mustard - £3.99 - Link | The Body Shop Colour Crush Nail Varnish in The Body Shop Green - £5.00 - Link | Seventeen Nail Varnish in Fury - £2.99 - Link | Miners Nail Varnish in Keepin In Teal - £2.99 - Link | Barry M Nail Paint In Masqueraed - £2.99 - Link |

I always love this time of year because it means I can dig the darker shades of nail polish out, don't get me wrong I absolutely love rocking the pastel colours in the S/S but as it gets colder and the Autumn colours start appearing in shops I love matching my nails to my outfits.

These above are some of my favorites for this year and are available to buy in shops right now.
There are a few classics such as Barry M with the introduction of the new colour "Mustard" in the Gelly range which I'm pleased they finally bought out, its not a colour everyone loves to wear but this is my second favourite A/W colour to wear after burgundy and this gelly range last days without chipping, probably my favourite nail varnish brand at the moment.
I also have a new found love for the Seventeen range this year, I have bought so much stuff from there make up range, Ruby Gem and Fury are my favourites shades this A/W from there nail polish range, one coat is all you need for full coverage and they dry pretty quick - just don't apply more than two coats in a short space of time.
The Body Shop Colour Crush nail polishes are a new release from The Body Shop this year and I do love how shiny they are when dry, "The Body Shop Green" is the perfect shade for this time of year and you can probably pick it up 40% off in the offers there do online every Christmas.
Lastly Miners Keepin in Teal and Barry M's Masquerade are my favourite brighter A/W shades, I do love a bit of glitter and Masquerade is a perfect top coat over most colours, I love how many different glitters are in this shade, perfect for Christmas day.

Have you been wearing any of these shades this A/W or do you have any recommendations??

Check Mate ♥

| Sainsbury's Check Bowling Bag - £16.99 - Link |

I've never really shopped for clothing in Supermarkets till recently, I always go to George @ Asda for my pyjamas and homewear when I do my monthly food shop and occasionally something will catch my eye and end up in my trolley.
 Imagine my surprise when this A/W I have found myself exploring the Sainsbury's TU clothing range and I came across some lovely pieces, not to mention their bag range, I've already spotted a few more items I want come payday.
This tartan/check trim faux leather bag is on trend and in store only £16.99 it caught my eye straight away, there was no arguments with myself when I went to the till, I simply had to have it - I also bought the very last one in my store so I can tell these have sold fast.
Big enough to carry your every day essentials, and with two ways to carry it, this bowling bag is very versatile.
I plan on wearing mine with my faux leather jacket and tartan scarf for the upcoming months - I'm completely head over heels for the tartan/check trend again this year and I know I'm not the only one.

Have you ever shopped the Sainsbury's TU clothing range??

Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream ♥

Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream - £9.99 - Boots.

I bought this product because Bourjois had an offer on, it was buy one get one half price in Superdrug, I needed a new light foundation for my holidays so I decided to buy this Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream.
 Being a huge fan of BB creams, I couldn't wait to give this a go, 
I'm not blessed with naturally clear skin, I have an oily T-zone which causes me to have problems with pesky spots, especially at that certain time of the month and I have red areas on my face where my skin is healing, not forgetting dark spots where a spot once was.

Bourjois CC cream is a colour perfecting foundation with 3 different coloured pigments, Apricot, Green and White, these three colours help smooth out anti - fatigue, anti - redness and anti- dark spots giving you healthy glowing skin that stays hydrated for up to 24 hours, there's even an added SPF15 which made it even more ideal for my holiday too.

I'm still using this CC cream now a month later, its almost all gone but its easily lasted me nearly two months, that included all of my 2 weeks on holiday too - I used it every evening.
I found it was fantastic at disguising my sun burnt nose which happened after wearing my sunnies out in the sun for too long - oooops - it hid any dark circles under my eyes and dark spots on my face.
This CC cream also helped to warm up my skin tone a bit more too and it was also really light to wear, a little goes a long way with this product.

I'd absolutely buy this again, I think I may even buy another tube once I have finished this one because it works so well with my skin.
Because of my oily T-zone I'm sometimes a bit wary of some foundations that are to oily but this one is really hydrating and I found it helped my skin stay shine free - shame it doesn't prevent those pesky spots though.

This photo taken below is a picture from our most recent holiday to Lanzarote - completely untouched, you can see how fantastic this CC cream really is at giving you healthy glowing skin.

Have you tried this CC Cream by Bourjois??

Love 4 Boots - My Tops 5 Winter Picks ♥

| 1. Steve Madden Brown Ankle Boots - £110.00 | 2. Anna Field Black Ankle Boots - £25.00 | 3. Pier One Beige Ankle Boots - £65.00| 4. Tosca Blu Black Ankle Boots - £120.00| 5. Sir Oliver Grey Ankle Boots £75.00 |

With Autumn & Winter finally here in full swing as of this week - the clocks go back this weekend eeek - its finally time to update my wardrobe with some new boots.
I have been window shopping on SPM Boots and picking out my favourite must have's for this A/W,- who doesn't love a wishlist right??
I do love my boots with a heel and funnily enough A/W is probably the only time you will see me in heels more a less every day, boots always feel so much more comfortable as apposed to heels, no idea why - maybe because I don't tend to almost break my neck in them.

What do you think of my current must have's??
Do you prefer high heeled boots to flats??
