Battle of the Beauty Advent Calenders // Step Into Christmas


Welcome to my first instalment of my Step into Christmas series on my blog, last year I did a Step into Autumn so I figured this time we'll get festive and prepare for the holidays.

As soon as the advent calenders pop up in tesco you instantly know Christmas is just around the corner, but you also know it means the beauty advent calenders will be out. Beauty advent calenders are the must have treat for anyone who is in love with beauty and it's obvious why. Just like your average chocolate advent calender behind every door there is a beauty treat, sounds like heaven to me.

When the beauty advent calenders started there weren't many on the market but now there pretty much everywhere you turn and making the choice of which advent calender you want is nearly as overwhelming as having to choose which chocolate advent calender you want, so let's have a look at some of this years beauty advent calenders on the market.

Autumn/Winter Beauty Must Haves

Autumn and Winter are undoubtedly my favourite times of the year, with Halloween, my birthday, Bonfire Night and Christmas it's filled with festivities and times which you can't help but enjoy.

Saying this, the colder weather does take it's toll on our bodies and the seasonal colours means we can be more adventurous with our make up which is why I have come up with my 10 Autumn/Winter beauty must haves which I won't go the next two seasons without.

MakeUp Revolution 5 Baked Eyeshadows // Review


I think by now it is pretty obvious I love MakeUp Revolution, their products have yet to disappoint me and each time I'm pleasantly surprised by the quality of them.

The most recent product I've tried is one of their 5 Baked Eyeshadow sets in the shade Pure and Innocent.

I dyed my hair purple!


So the time finally came, I decided to do what I've wanted for a few months and get rid of my ombre and dye my hair.

I was honestly getting really bored of my ombre and let's be honest the ombre trend probably died out months ago. Mine had also really grown out so it looked terrible and I was hating it!

My Hair and Media Make Up Course // Month 1

I can't believe it's actually been a month since I started my hair and media make up course at college, it feels so weird and the time has definitely gone by quickly. I've decided to do a post on this each month and then do it in an almost diary layout and hopefully include as much photographs as I can. 
So this is what happened during my first month as a hair and media make up student.

Alchemy Oils Grapefruit Hair Remedy // Review


I love using oils whether for my body or for my hair, I feel like they give so much more hydration than other products and they just work really well with my hair.
