I was really lucky recently to have won the cutest shoes ever and I can see a trend starting to happen! I've never been a "shoe person" handbags have always been my 'thing'. It all started with my quest to find a pair a shoes that actually fit my flat feet and I brought my amazing TOM's which really are fantastic!

I love tags, I think it’s because at this time of year I tend to be more reflective! So I had a look on the #bbloggers hash tag and found this TAG on @beautyblogpage’s blog (http://beginnersbeauty.com/last-year-i-was-tag/) and I really liked the questions!

IT'S CHRISTMAS EVE. IT'S CHRISTMAS EVE. IT'S CHRISTMAS EVE. Yep, I'm sure you knew that already but how exciting! Today's BEAUTIFUL and LIMITED EDITION glitter shade from Ciate is Enchanted Rose, which is truly beautiful and leaves me with a bit of a predicament, do I wear this or the Mavala one from Day 1 of Latest in Beauty! The item from LIB is the candle, I'm not too sure about the scent, it's not really one for me, which is a bit sad! :(
Hope you all have a fantastic Christmas tomorrow!

I'm not too sure about this Ciate colour today (mojita), it's the first one that is a little too far fetched for me, but you never know! I'm really excited about trying the Balm Balm, I particularly love the packaging! Has anyone tried it?
It's so close to Christmas now, I hope you're all enjoying Christmas festivities!

I'm finally getting round to using some of my new beautiful polishes from my Ciate nail calender and I'm loving them! I'm loving this one in particular which is a beautiful gold foil shade called Ladylike Luxe, I love it! It's very Christmassy and catches everybody's attention, I get so many comments when I wear it!
What polishes are you loving?

This year was my fifth year at Clothes Show Live and naturally I did a bit of personal Christmas shopping, so I thought I'd share my haul with you! I've done a seperate post on Clothes Show Live itself, so press older posts to check that out!
One of the things I knew I was going to buy is the limited edition Clothes Show Live nail polish called Show Stopper. They were doing a deal where you got to pick two nail polishes and got a goody bag all for £10. There's a few bits I'll use in the goody bag so I spent a few extra pennies and got the extra polish and the goody bag! I'm mot excited about an eyeshadow pot in expresso!

Another beautiful shade from Ciate today, this one is called Power Dressing which is super cute! I think its the perfect royal blue, I'll definitely wear this way more often than I should! I have a bit of a hair product addiction at the moment so I'm super excited to try the Nicky Clarke Instant Calmer!

A couple of days ago I met up with a great friend of mine Cath for coffee and cake with my friend Amber. Cath happens to run her own cake business called Wish Cakes (you can visit the Facebook page here), she's based in Chandlers Ford, Southampton so services some of the South Coast. She gifted me this beautiful cake which I just had to share with you as it's just beautiful!

Today's Latest in Beauty featured Mirenesse Lip Lift Moisture Shine, I actually won a full size one of these on their Facebook competition, but luckily this is a different colour! I'm not the biggest lip gloss wearer to be honest, but I'll give it a go! I'm a sucker for blue nail polish so I naturally love this beautiful shade that Ciate have called Headliner! I'm already wearing it!
GREED: Most inexpensive/expensive item
I really don’t buy much that’s actually expensive, I’m completely new to buying expensive items of beauty, if you disregard makeup, my most expensive item of beauty is my Marc Jacobs Dot perfume which I adore, closely followed my Boss Nuit perfume. Actual hair and beauty wise, I tend to spend more money on appliances and tools, so my Mark Hill hairdryer and my GHD strengtheners are pretty expensive. For makeup, my Stila Natural Beauty Eye shadow palette, my Mac blusher in Fleur Power and my Real Techniques brushes are my most expensive items, but even they are only around the £15-£20 mark so as you can see I don’t spend a lot in one go on make up!

Today's Ciate is a rather bright orange colour, called Speed Dial! I'm not sure when I'll use this, maybe next halloween I'll paint my nails like a pumpkin, or maybe I could have carrot nails! I'm joking, it's not actually that bright and is actually moral a beautiful coral colour! The most exciting thing was from Latest in Beauty, I love the Bella Pierre Eyeshadow in Celebration, I wear a LOT of gold eyeshadows, I can't wait to wear this on Christmas day!

I was super excited this morning because I behind my 13th door (unlucky for some!) was one of the exclusive colours for the Ciate Mini Mani Month Calender! It's called Glass Slipper and I LOVE it. It's probably because I love glitter polishes but this really is one of the favourite polishes I've opened! Less exciting is my present from the Latest in Beauty calender which is Instant Glow Body Lotion from St Tropez, fake tan really isn't my thing!

I thought I'd do a NOTD today as I haven't posted one in what seems like forever! Today I'm wearing Models Own Show Stopper which is the limited edition nail polish from Clothes Show Live! I love it so much, I'm wearing it over the top of my L'Oreal Colour Riche polish in 501 which is a perfect winter purple! What polishes have you been loving recently?
Today's Ciate colour is this beautiful black polish with gold flecks called Twilight, which I think is beautiful and matches yesterday's caviar beads perfectly, so I think that's my New Years Eve nails sorted! Today's Latest in Beauty item is Balance Me Face Oil, I'm not the biggest fan of Balance Me but I'm loving oils at the moment, so I'm definitely going to give it a go!

Today in the Latest in Beauty calender I received the Jo Hansford Expert Colour Care Intensive Masque, which I love the look of, so I can't wait to try this out! In the Ciate calender I got the uber cute caviar beads which I think would make a perfect accent nail for New Years Eve? What do you guys think?
