Before Christmas I posted about the Haydon's Traders Bath Products I purchased at my works Christmas Bazzaar. Last night I tried out one of the Cupcake Bath Bombs, a bath bomb made to look like a cupcake, the bottom of the cupcake is said to be a standard bath bomb, which fizzes and creates a lovely bubble in the bath, the ‘icing’ part is a mix of cocao butter and oil.

I’ve always been a bit miffed that I’ve never been able to find a high coverage foundation at a high street price point. When I started to think about graduation makeup, I decided I’d take a look at blogs and ask friends for recommendations. A few people came back with the suggestion of the Revlon Colourstay Foundation. A foundation which guarantees 16 hours of full coverage, and it comes in two forms; one for dry skin and one for oily. It sounded right up my avenue and I popped to Boots to try it out.

A couple of weeks ago my work had a Christmas Bazaar, where local companies came along to sell their goodies to us all afternoon! There were tons of different types of companies there but I just could not resist the bath products from Haydon’s Traders. The whole stall was filled to the brim with bath products and candles but in the end I settled for a bath bomb and a sugar soap.

My friend Amber and I have been desperate to visit Winter Wonderland for three years and this year we finally got round to visiting Hyde Park. Winter Wonderland is a combination of German Markets and Fun Fair Rides, as well as food stalls and a few attractions. It was definitely worth visiting, we most enjoyed looking round the German Market and enjoying the hog roast rolls! I thought I'd share some pictures with you I hope you enjoy them!

I was filled with love and excitement when the Birchbox dispatch email came through this month, it was pretty damn early for a beauty box and it arrived yesterday, less than 24 hours later.
The box came packed with little cards, which included a $20 BaubleBar voucher, which is really generous, but it costs $20 to ship to the UK, so I don't think I'll be taking advantage of it! I also received some cards with hints and tips on them, as well as some cute Birchbox Gift Tags.

Today's NOTD is Sephora's Color Hit Nail Polish which I bought whilst I was in America in October. The colour in really pretty, I have such a thing at the moment for blue nails at the moment. In one coat the colour is quite sheer, it dries really, really quickly which is great, so two coats for the perfect colour is not a long wait. The little bumps in the polish is dust that was on the nail wheel, not an indication of the formula.
These retail for $5 which is not too shabby!

I recently ditched my straight, flat, lifeless hair and opted for a perm. I know sounds crazy, my initial thought was 'does anyone even perm their hair anymore?' My hairdresser remarked that perms definitely still happen, just a little different to how they used to be. I decided to go for a volume ringlet perm, perfect for adding volume to your hair and leaving a beautiful gentle wave.
However this is a whole new ball game for hair products, I need things for curves and anti-frizz instead of the volumising hairsprays I have plenty of stock of. I literally didn't have a clue where to start, so I just looked for offers on any kind of curling product and went a little mad.
