Blogmas Day 14|Winter Skincare Staples

My skin is naturally quite dry so this time of year is a nightmare for me because I have to work extra hard to keep my skin feeling soft and not like a snake skin. I try to keep my skincare routine as simple as possible so here’s what I’ve been loving this season.

This one is no surprise if you’ve been reading my log for a while now. I am obsessed with the hot cloth cleaner from Lacura! Honestly, it is on par with Liz Earle’s cleanse and polish and always leaves my skin feeling so clean and soft. I use this everyday as it’s so gentle and doesn’t aggravate my skin.

Face masks, face masks. I love a good sheet mask so always make sure I have a good stock pile to keep me going. I use these about once a week for a treat and to make sure my skin has extra hydration. My all time favourites are the Sephora ones.

Blogmas Day 12| Stress Free Shopping

This time of year is stressful enough but then add on the shopping! I always try to make the whole experience as stress free as possible so I thought I’d share some of my top tips.

  1. Write a list – I love writing lists and keeping organised and this definitely helps me stay as relaxed as possible. I usually write down everyone that I need to buy for with a few ideas and a budget so I can make sure I pick accordingly. It’s great because then you know who is done and who is left and honestly, is there any better feeling than physically crossing something off of your to-do list? No.

   2. Avoid peak shopping times – If I am venturing to a shopping centre, I always try to do it in and evening after work when it is quieter than normal. I mean Christmas shopping on a Saturday is a no go for me, I find it way too over whelming but doing it in an evening is much more relaxed. Also, the shopping centre near me stays open until 11pm so I know I have more than enough time to get everything done.

 3. Shop online – Probably the best idea is to shop online. I mean whats better than growing the whole store from the confront of your sofa and pyjamas and then to have it delivered to your door; perrrrrrfect!

Blogmas Day 9|Festive Night In

I am a self confessed Grandma who loves a night in so when you can make it festive then why not. Usually, any night in for me will include a good skin care routine, I love that squeaky clean feeling and you can read all about that in Blogmas day 14

Usually then, I will go to the kitchen and make a hot chocolate and grab a snack which of course had to be a mince pie for this time of year. Drinks and snacks go, and it’s time for films and TV; which Netflix have been great for recently; I’ve already watched Elf and The Grinch countless times. Sometimes, if I want to give myself an extra pamper, I’ll also do my nails too, currently they are painted with the CND Shellac in ‘Tinted Love’

The once I am ready for bed, the fairy lights get turned off and the pillow pray comes out. Pillow sprays are one of those things I never knew I needed but as soon as I tried them, I was hooked; now I struggle to sleep without one. My favourite 2 at the moment are from Feather and Down and Marks and Spencer.

What makes your perfect night in?

Blogmas Day 5| Best festive nail designs

I’m quite boring when it comes to my nails, I usually stick to one colour and if I’m going all out, I might add a bit of glitter to one of my fingers. That being said, I love looking at other people’s nail designs so I’ve found a few of my favourites to show you
