1. Christmas Eve and Black Cherry Yankee Candles
I always have candles burning, but I get bored of scents easily, which is why the sampler votive sized candles (£1.80 from here) are ideal! The Black Cherry scent is my all time favourite, (along with Clean Cotton, of course) and the Christmas Eve candle is absolutely perfect for burning when I feel festive. I'm definitely planning on buying a larger Black Cherry candle, probably this one (but Christmas is coming, hint hint!) I really can't get enough of it!




2. Nivea Pure & Natural lip care in Milk & Honey
My lips are prone to getting chapped at the best of times, so as you can image they can be a nightmare in the colder months. Vaseline always works wonders, but I hate  dipping my finger in the tin - it just feels so unhygienic! This lip balm is one of the best I have ever used, and 90% of the ingredients are from natural origins, lovely! 





3. Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Lipstick in 107
There is nothing better than finding that perfect red lipstick. In the autumn and winter months, I much prefer a darker, richer red than a bright popping red, so I tend to look for colours with purple, plum and maroon tones to them. This lipstick is the exact shade I was looking for, and it's perfect for Christmas parties. I've used other shades of the Lasting Finish by Kate before, and it really does last a long time without having to re-apply, but I find that the best way to apply for long lasting colour is to use a lip liner to line the lips, then use the liner to fill in the lips aswell. Put one coat of the lipstick on, using a lip brush to keep the edges neat, dab with a tissue, and apply a second coat. Voila!  



4. Festive Nails
I am a little ocd when it comes to my nails, and I can't stand it when they are chipped or broken or messy, so treating myself to a set of acrylics has been a regular occurrence recently, as i'm often away from home for a week at a time and I don't always remember to take nail supplies with me. I usually get plain nails and paint them myself (usually only neutral colours because I can also be a little picky about my nails clashing with what i'm wearing), but I wanted something a little bit more festive this time, so I thought black and glitter is just the right amount of sparkle for the season!





5. Feather Print Wrap 
This wrap (£8 from George!) caught my eye when I was killing time in town. I wasn't planning on spending any money, but I thought that this would be so nice to slip on over pj's on Christmas morning! I couldn't decide between the wrap and this feather print teddy, so I think i'm going to add the teddy to my Christmas list! 





6. VIVO Eyeshadow's

Trio Eyeshadow Palette in Green With Envy - £2.50

Pearl Eyeshadow in Mink - £1.00

Pearl Eyeshadow in Champagne - £1.00

These eyeshadows are amazing value for money. I've always been a fan of the MUA range that can be found in Superdrug, (for £1.00 per eyeshadow you can't really go wrong can you?!) so after walking past this range in Tesco week after week, I thought it's about time I tried it! These eyeshadows are much more pigmented than I expected, and the pearl shine is gorgeous for smokey Christmas eyes. You can see the full range here.
