Gift Guide: For Someone That Has Everything...

Good morning/afternoon whatever time it is for you reading this,

So we all have that one person in our lives that has everything and when you ask them what they want for Christmas their reply is “nothing just don’t bother this year”, apart from wanting to strangle them for that answer you realise you HAVE to buy them something. 

They like to add to the stress of Christmas, you running around in each shop searching for that extra special something that they probably won’t ever use but you can’t bare to see their face on Xmas day when they actually realise you really did buy them a thing. 

Well here I complied a little list of possible gifts for those people that “Don’t want anything this year” or “have everything they need” so if you have one of those awkward people in your lives then this is the list for you;


1.       The Slush Cup… Because how cool would it be for a cup to turn your fav drink into a slush ? mmmm red bull £8.99

( why does the little clip look wrong? maybe it;s just me haha) 


          3.    Biscuit Pocket Mug. For those biscuit lovers, sometimes it is difficult to hold your tea and a handful of bisuits at the same time.. this solves that problem. - £6.99

   4.       Peace Hand Ring Holder… How cool is this dude? If your like me you have nowhere to put your rings and end up finding them in random places in your you have that one special place to go to.. PEACE. - £10

    5.       Glow In The Dark Pillow Case. If you're a night owl like me why not get one of these draw a little picture then watch it glow in the dark .. you can wash after your done .. would be cute to write little notes to your hubby <3 - £16.99


 6.       Lapkins.For those messy eater comedians in our lives. Bit of a twist this Christmas rather than the good old napkins - £4.99

 7.       1 Million Pound Note… “Fake it until til you make it?” -  £1.99

      8.       Self Stirring Mug. For those Monday mornings you want to end your life then add less stress to your day by purchasing this self stirring mug, one less thing to do that morning… - £4.75

        9.       Loch ness Salt, Pepper & Oil Shaker. .. Says it all really. £9.99

10.   Monkey Nail Drier. For the nail polish mad crazies that can  not wait for nails to dry but insist after 30 second you can itch that sudden itch that only ever appears after you have painted your nails then this is the item for you… - £8 

So there you have it , I hope that helped ya’ll out this year, which one is your fav? .

Stocking Fillers For Only £1.......

Hello Lovely people, 

Well well well, I thought I would do a little post on some recent things I have bought that "should have been expensive but actually weren't." ALL products are leading brands

Everything in this post was bought from discount stores, I do go in a lot of discount stores and YES you do come across mostly junk items but sometimes you come across some hidden gems. All items I will list were £1 YES £1... 

The first 3 items I bought was Rimmel London 60 Seconds these products RRP £2.99 in Drugstores, I bought them in colour numbers: 34,38 and 40 ..

I can not compliment this product as much as I want too, they are simply beautiful colours, dried super quick, the brush seemed harder than normal which made the application easier and it went on like silk. :) Lasted 3 days without chipping lovely vibrant colour these were the only colours I could find and I hunted about a lot. hehe

I paid : £1 
RRP: £2.99 

This one is for my step daughter for Xmas , super duper cute bath sponge featuring Elsa from Frozen. Again only £1. Frozen stuff is super rare where I live let alone for £1.

I paid ; £1 
RRP: unknown

Love a bit Disney, anything Disney is always over priced in my eyes . I actually bought some nail polish from The Disney Store last year and it was the best nail polish I have used so it made me buy this Minnie Mouse one... Love the colour it looks a bit darker on here than it does in real life.

The polish was £1 . I could not find another price to compare but apparently these came out in Boots at some point so they will have cost more than £1.

I paid : £1
RRP: unknown

You can never have enough Lip Balm... Enough Said £1 ... RRP. £1.99

I am always buying hair products to try and sort my barnet(hair) out since bleaching it a few weeks ago I am trying to find products to use on my poor hair. Pantene Nature Fusion Strengthening Serum.

I paid : £1
RRP : £6.99

 I am obsessed with The Nightmare Before Christmas , I also bought the hair bobbles that were £1 lol. 
I paid : £1 
RRP: £2.99

I hope you enjoyed the cute little stocking fillers I have recently found, I bought a load more. Let me know if this is the kind of post you would like me to do more often?

 I love bargain hunting.

Hello beauts,

So I saw a post over at TheLuckyDiamond Blog (everyone should check out her Blog it's amazing) where she posted about a Xmas jumper from Boohoo for like £4 in the sale with a code for FREE DELIVERY. It made my day when I saw the miserable lady pulling up who brings me my "special" parcels ... hehe :)

Here's a few snaps of me wearing it hehe: 

My cat Laylah stealing my thunder

Apparently this is my excited face?
Comment your links below of you wearing your Xmas jumper? I'd love to see them.

Barry M Make Up Brushes Collection - Cruelty FREE....

Hello beautiful people,

Well I saw on my Facebook this morning that Barry M have make up brushes available, I think they are newish as I have never seen them in stores... Have you?

I am definitely going to give these a try once they come to stores near to me. (They are out of stock on the Superdrug website or maybe not in stock yet??) ... I  mean not only is the prices amazingly cheap but they are cruelty FREE which just makes them all the more amazing to me.

What make up brushes do you use? 


I am going to try the mini brush set for £9.99 what would you guys like to try?  By the sounds of it this kit is the travel kit so they won't be too big but I have a mini make up bag anyway so they look perfect. 

Let me know what you guys think?
