NOTD - Colour Block Nails ♥

This is a quick and easy Nail Art to do, you don't need to be a professional, and it can liven up any nail colour, just by using a contrasting colour,


To do my nails I've used a dark blue, and a lighter Turquoise Blue,
I used these nail polishes below,


I got this idea from the Front Cover Metallic Nail Collection I got for Christmas,


I like doing something different all the time with my nails, and paint them different colours constantly to match my mood,
I guess feeling blue has matched my mood these last two days, probably the Xmas blues!

To paint your nails like this, do the following,

You paint your nails with the darker shade all over first, then when its dry, use the lighter colour and draw a line across the centre of nail, then fill it in using the lighter colour on one side,
Don't worry if the line isn't perfect, do what i did, i used the darker shade to neaten up the line,


You can use contrasting shades of the same colour like I have or use bolder colours that match,
in all different colour block designs like the one's above, be as creative as you want,
Its a good way of matching your nails with your outfits, and it can be done as quickly as painting your nails one colour.

I Hope You All Had A Lovely Christmas ♥

So this is a little belated but I hope all my followers had the BEST Christmas and got everything they wanted :)

I wanted to show you what I got for Christmas,
I got amazing goodies off my fiance and family and friends.

This was mine and my fiances pressies, we wanted to put them all together, we had a few joint ones also,


Here's what I got:

Front Cover goodies, I'm a huge fan and my fiance knows this, my fave is the Air Kiss, so many different colours to try out, some i've never been brave enough to buy,

I tried out a lip colour today, they are fab, it comes with lip brush, and lip liner and shows you how to create the perfect lips.

I got these gorge pressies off friends and my fave blogger girlie's, thank you very much,


My Fiance is a star and got me the O.P.I Muppet's collection, 
I wore Excuse Moi today which is a gorge pink glittery shade with green and silver glitter,

All My Goodies Together, 


I got some really comfy slipper boots from La Senza, 


Some gorgeous Pj's, two cake cooks books with over 1000 recipes, I'm going to busy baking all year.


One Tree Hill Season 7, I love this show so much, i always get my fiance to get me them every year.
My friend got me "Sweetheart" by Ghost, its such a gorgeous perfume and my new favourite,
I also got a light up No7 mirror to do my make up in, the light in my bedroom can be so rubbish when it goes dark.
I'm so happy with all my Xmas purchases :)


Me and my fiance also got lots of Thornton's chocolates, I swear if i don't put on any weight it will be a miracle!lol!
& A Perri Perri hot sauce set, I love this stuff so much on chips, despite how spicy it is,
I love spicy foods,

I hope everyone else got what they wanted for christmas and had a great Christmas day spending it with the people you love.


I went to go and see my mum on Christmas Eve to put some flowers down and a mini Christmas Tree, Its my second Christmas without her and it does get hard every year but I always like to think she's looking down on me and that she's happy.

Without a doubt, Lee Evans, he's such a down to earth and funny guy, I love him.

Fabulous £12.00 Boots From Boohoo ♥

My lovely dad treated me to a pair of boots as the pair I had similar just seemed to getting worn beyond wearable, so my dad offered as an extra Xmas pressie and an early one to to treat me to a pair.

I got these beauts from Boohoo, I've bought my boots from here in the past, they've never let me down, the pair i had were practically identical to these from Boohoo, I'd had them for 3 winters and for £15.00 then, you couldn't go wrong.



So when I saw a pair similar i bought them, there so comfy and go with everything!
You can get them HERE
Who else loves Boohoo as much as meee :)

Day 27: A Celebrity You Find Annoying ♥

Scarlett Johansson
 Don't get me wrong she is most probably is a really successful actor, but her face and her voice just really irrates the hell out of me, 
Lets face it we all know she's gorgeous, but I think she knows it a little bit to much, I don't think any girl needs to be provocative and sexy to stand out, and I'd much rather prefer people to like me because I'm successful, not pretty.
There people out there who may really love her and I don't hate her, she might be a really lovely lady,
Anyway she married Ryan Reynolds for goodness sake, i need a small reason to hate her!lol!

Babyliss Wand Hair Styler ♥ Easy Everyday Curls ♥


This look was achieved by using this Babyliss wand, I purchased it last year as I'd heard amazing things about it, and its never let me down.

I was always obsessed with curling my hair ever since Mary Kate & Ashley came on the scene years ago, i was like 13/14, but curlers then could never give me the same look.

I purchased these for about £30.00 at the time, but you can get them as cheap as £19.00 on Amazon,

Anyway onto this look I've created,




My hairs quite long now, I'm really happy since its took a year to get to my achieved length and I no longer need extensions, yay!
I normally wear it like this most days as its easy to style and can be straightened in 10 minutes flat,
Don't worry if your hairs shorter, this look can work on any hair thats past the chin length.

Sometimes its nice to have a change and i like curling my hair to give it volume, so i use my trusty Babyliss  Wand,


I start by sitting my hair in two in my desired parting and clipping one half down straight,
you don't want a kink in your hair when you unclip it,
I take sections not to thick or to thin, about this much,


And I wrap them around about half way down the hair and keep it wrapped around the thicker part of the wand like this,


and leave it for roughly about 15 seconds, the more heat the better the curl, I think :)
and it should look like this,


This pretty much needs to be done to all the bottom of the hair, both sides, I don't tend to spray with hairspray till 5 minutes after curling my hair as I like the curls to drop a bit, they look more natural this way, a good hold firm hairspray gives the curls hold, and they might drop slightly more, but you'll end up with tousled natural curls that can take you from natural, to glam at night time, and they last all day long.

You can use any other curling wands, but I do recommend buying this wand as its work brilliant for me, at 230 degrees, almost the same temperature as GHD'S i think the heat helps the hair to curl better,

Does anyone else have this wand?


What do you think of this look, have you tried it before?

Christmas Tag ♥

I've seen a few of these circulating around so I wanted to join in the fun :)
Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate?
Definitely hot chocolate especially when its covered in marshmallows and made from one of them machines they use in coffee shops, I can never make them as good as they do.
Although my dad makes a good hot chocolate :)

Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree?
I wrap them and then hide them, I have a fiance that likes to poke and feel to see what he's got, its like having a kid sometimes!lol! 
But on Xmas eve we put all of our presents together under the tree so it looks like we have loads :)
Then get all excited about opening them the next day
.


  
Coloured lights on tree/house or white?
Coloured mostly, but I do love the blue flashing ones as well, i have some on my tree atm and they make it look really pretty :)

Do you hang mistletoe?
I've never done that if I'm quite honest, maybe that should be a sure sign to get some this year just as an excuse for a special kiss.

When do you put your decorations up?
If i had it my way the very 1st day of December, its took alot of effort to put them up this year as I was unsure of what tree I wanted to use since we now have a cat that likes to climb anything he can't!
So this year they've been put up a little later, but better late than never ey!
 What is your favourite holiday dish?
  Mince Pies, its one of the best thing about Xmas, its a good job they only come out once a year as I eat that many i tend to be sick of them by Christmas day, till a whole year later, I love them with condensed milk when there hot, ohh and you can't forget the good old tin of Quality Street, and Xmas roast dinners!


Favourite Holiday memory as a child?
So many, my favourite ones has to be when the decorations were up at Xmas time as a kid, my parents used to go all out in the living room, it was the same every year but I just used to love the cosy feel of Xmas time as a kid and being all excited for Christmas day, I'd literly count down the days, now its not the same as when your a kid but it still excites me :)
Oh and the best memory I had as a kid was when i got a Sindy Jeep for Christmas, complete with a new Sindy, i even got a Pocahontas that Xmas too that had a dress that changed colour in the sunshine.

When and how did you learn the truth about Santa?
I never really found out he didn't exist, I guess I kinda just put two and two together, I can never remember getting upset he didn't exist, I was always a smart kid so i figured it out pretty quickly.


Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? 
No, that's just torture, that's like having one pringle from a tube of pringles.
and having the rest the next day!lol!

 How do you decorate your Christmas tree?
With matching baubles and tinsel :) I love anything gold, pink and blue, i try to stick to that theme when I'm decorating my tree!hehe!

Snow! Love it or Dread it?
I love it, but not when I fall on my bum, that doesn't half hurt, and i hate how long it sometimes takes to build a snowman.
I'm going to say love, but this could all change if I'm driving by next year!lol!


Can you ice skate?
Not for toffee, I spend most of the time clinging onto the sides, I went a few years ago and warned my boyfriend to not drag me, what did he did, drag me, i fell over and he fell down with me right on his back!haha!he wanted to go home after that!

Do you remember your favourite gift?
I've had loads of fab gifts, the best ones where when I was younger, I had Sindy's, Furbies, Dolls, you name it, and them sorts of presents are always amazing when you get them as a kid as you really want them but don't have any money.


What’s the most important thing about the Holidays for you?
 Family time, I lost my mum one Christmas ago, this is my second without her, so i really cherish every Christmas I spend with the people I love.


What is your favourite Holiday Dessert?
  Mine Pies, you know this :)
& my auntie makes this amazing trifle to go with a buffet later, its incredible.


What is your favourite holiday tradition?
I like to watch a really xmassy film on Christmas Eve to really get me in the mood and feeling like a kid again, my favs are Home Alone, The Grinch, Santa Clause,
Last year I watched Jingle All The Way, Love that film!lol! 


What tops your tree?
 Nothing unusual, this year I've just got some pointy thing I got with my decorations. 


Which do you prefer giving or receiving?
Giving by far, I love seeing the look on peoples faces when I get them something they really like for Christmas :)


Candy Canes: Yuck or Yum?
There not my first choice of sweets but I do like them :)


Favourite Christmas show?
Will most probably have to be the Royal Family, I love there Xmas specials there so funny, and kind of remind me of my family.


Saddest Christmas Song?
I can't answer this one since Xmas songs are meant to get you in the spirit aren't they?

If you've read this I tag you :)
