Festive Haul


It's been a while since I've posted a haul up on my blog, purely just because I've not done any purchasing worth mentioning. Just little bits and bobs here and there. I've been picking up bits and pieces while completing my Christmas shopping. 


I picked up some some autumn/winter accessories for my room; I thought that it would be nice to have some seasonality to my space. I picked up this super adorable little glass tray to place on my desk. It's back and grey with a picture of a little Scottish squirrel on it. I just wanted to go 'aww' when I seen it. I also picked up a small set of battery operated Christmas lights. I thought they'd be nice draped across the back of my desk. Their multi-coloured and feel super festive! I popped into my local Yankee Candle store and picked up a little volitive angle holder, which is crackle glass and glitter trickling down like icicles.


I also picked up seven little volitive to accompany it. They were:Christmas Cookie, Angel's Wings, White Christmas, Balsam & Cedar, Season of Peace, Merry Marshmallow, and Pomegranate Cider. All I consider very festive scents! I also picked up a large jar Cranberry Ice and I am still waiting on a large jar Candy Cane Lane being delivered. I am taking my Christmas candles very seriously this year.


I picked up a few clothing bits and pieces. First you may have already seen; it's my Christmas patterned swing dress. I have had so many compliments on it already and people asking me where I bought it. I thought I'd go down a different route than the traditional jumper this year. I have been a big fan of roll-neck tops and jumpers this year. I picked up a nick Khaki ribbed roll-neck top, which I find so comfortable as it does not cling like I thought that it would. The next was a super fluffy and soft faux 'sheepskin' gillet. It's similar to like Ugg boots, so it has the white fluffy innards and the soft touch outer material. Last but not least was a simple grey ribbed jumper. It's quite plain and basic, but it has little black patches on the elbows.


My last purchase was CANDY CANES! It's not Christmas in my house without candy canes.

Am I the only one who goes gift shopping and comes away with loads of stuff for themselves?

MAC: Fraud or Not?

It's getting to the time of year when  people start gathering together all there gifts in the rush to the holiday season. They start trying to get the best gifts possible for the best price they can. Unfortunately that leaves them vulnerable for people to take advantage of them. The most common form of this is through the use of counterfeit goods. 
Recently a MAC lipstick was purchased for me, as a Christmas gift, from eBay. When I learned of it I was immediately sceptical and dubious of how genuine it was; I like to research into the item and view the pictures available myself. When I checked the listing, the lipstick was listed as 'MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick'. Upon looking at the details and the images available, I noticed that there were very few specifics and one general image of the lipstick with the lid off. I immediately wrote to the seller asking for pictures of the bottom label on the box and the lipstick tube (Well as details such as finish and shade). I knew th…

Barry M Colour Changing Lip Paint in Neptune

Remember way, way back, back to the very beginning of my blog. One of the very first products that I reviewed was the Barry M Lip Paint in the shade Genie. For those who don't know, Genie is an unusual colour changing lipstick. While it looks green in the tube, it turns a shade of pink on the lips that is supposed to be different for each person. It is supposed to be a result of the lipstick reacting to the alkaline level of the lips. 

Farewell to Lime Crime Unicorn Lipsticks

As you may, or may not, know Lime Crime are discontinuing their Unicorn Lipsticks. Such a sad thing, I know. I remember first hearing of the lipstick from a family member who had one in their collection. I always promised myself that one day, I would have a Unicorn Lipstick. When I seen their Instagram post about the discontinue, I immediately went onto their website and bought not one or two, but THREE Unicorn Lipstick. Let me tell you I have never been happier; their are no post buy regrets on these babies!
