The time it actually snowed at Christmas, well, Boxing Day.♥

♥♥♥
Hello everyone!

You may already know that on Boxing day, a lot of areas had snow! This is so rare for our country, especially so close to Christmas, so we decided to go on a lovely walk with our best friend and our cameras before it melts. We thought it would be nice to share some of these photos with you today. 











 (Apologies for how messy they are..I really probably should wash them aha.)

Thank you to our best friend for a lovely afternoon, we really enjoyed it.

Bath items ~ What we got for Christmas 2014 #3. ♥

♥♥♥
Hello everyone!

Today's 'what we got for Christmas' is all about bath items. We thought it would be best to do these together because there was A LOT. People know us well and know what to buy aha! This is going to be a loooooong post, prepare yourselves!

Not in all cases did we get one of these items each, some are one of ours and some are the other, but we thought for the sake of the post we would put them together. After all, it is a shared blog. 

First is of course Lush. Our big sister bought us both a 'Santa Claus' each (we think that is his name anyway) and luck has it that it is a Christmas item we haven't tried but really wanted to! Unfortunately we can't link this for you as because it is part of the Christmas range they are all gone, but he smells gorgeous and I cannot wait to try him. We might have an almighty Lush haul coming soon as they had a boxing day sale on, and we kinda went mad. 


Next is all items from part of the 'I love...♥' range. This range can generally be bought anywhere but mostly at Superdrug. We got the mini shower gels in a set with a variety of scents, some shown in the photos, and they all smell beautiful and cost only £4.00. (One blog owner bought this for the other so that's how we know the price). It is the perfect gift for someone who loves baths. 

(Raspberry and Blackberry is our favourite!)

We also received these exfoliating shower smoothies in three scents, 'Lemon and Lime', 'Blueberry smoothie' and 'Vanilla and ice cream'.  These are also heavily scented and are lovely! I used these tonight on my face and my skin is so soft! The scrub is not too harsh but is enough. 

Some of the range is available here.

Now, we have 'The Body Shop' items. We absolutely love the body shop but don't tend to go in there often, because there is never any body in there in our local store and it feels awkward. Do you get that or is it just us? We feel pressured to buy when alone in a shop, and we have to do the... wait for the Miranda Hart quote... SWEEP BROWSE. Only our best ones and Miranda fans will understand that so if you are not one of them then were sorry! (But watch it! Aha. You will be glued). I am sure not all Body Shop stores are the same, it is just that we live in quite a small town compared to the bigger cities.
It is also quite expensive, so we would only go there if we had Birthday/Christmas money to spend. Luckily, one of our friends and our parents are brave enough to enter the shop so we had some items for Christmas. Yayyy.
(We sound like wimps/crazy psychopaths now...)



We received the body shops 'Body butter' (Chocolate scent), a couple of the shower gels, toners and shampoos, all of which smell lovely! We would for sure recommend all of them! The body butter makes your skin so very soft. All items are available on the body shop  website or in stores. 

Finally, we had a bomb cosmetics set with six little chocolatey scented bath bombs. Our parents bought these so unfortunately don't know where they are from or how much they were, and feel rude asking, but I am sure they will be easy to find if you search on google or like wise. 



They also come in a cute little box with a ribbon so they look like actual chocolates...mmmmm.
I'm afraid we haven't had chance to try these yet to let you know how well they work as a bath bomb, but we can tell you that they smell delicious!

I know we spoke about this before, but just as a disclaimer, we are not bragging, we just love writing about things like this and want to show our appreciation as much as possible. I love to read posts about what people receive as it gives us gift ideas in the future, and I hope you do too!

Hope you liked our day three of 'What we got for Christmas'!

Girl Online by Zoe Sugg ~ What I got for Christmas 2014 #2.♥

♥♥♥
Hello everyone!

Our next present we want to show you is Girl Online, by Zoe Sugg (Zoella). Our lovely best friend bought us this as she knew we were itching to read it, and as we opened it early (ssshhhh) we have already finished it. 

 
Without giving too much away, the book is about a girl who suffers from anxiety and panic attacks after a car crash a few years ago, Penny. She also runs an anonymous blog called 'Girl Online' (hence the title) to share her personal feelings to others. Penny then travels to New York with her family, and meets Noah, a boy a few years older than her who plays guitar, and she instantly likes him. But he too has a secret that threatens to ruin their relationship. Penny and Noah also experience some bad cyber-bullying along the way. 

This book is very much aimed at a teenage girl audience, so if you are of that age group it would for sure be a good read. 

We would for sure recommend this to any teenage girl who is into blogging and that sort of thing; as I'm aware most of you are and do run your own blogs. It was very interesting for me to read because it helped me see the dangers that blogging can have if your not careful so has made me feel even more cautious when writing posts.

We are so very proud of Zoe knowing how far she has come, and having read the book, and knowing how amazing the story is for saying it is her first novel, she is truly amazing. 

Girl online is available in many places a few being

Nikon Coolpix l830 ~ What we got for Christmas 2014 #1. ♥

♥♥♥
Hello everyone!

Firstly, we would like to apologise because haven't blogged since the start of December, so we are really sorry! We have plans to do a post everyday until the new year to make up for it and try to get back into the spirit. Thank you for your patience!

These blogs that we plan to do until January (approximately the 4th) will be posts of 'what we got for christmas 2014', and each one will include an individual item that we got this year that we particularly love. We are in no way bragging about our gifts, we are extremely grateful for everything we get and we feel extremely privileged. We just know that we are nosey when it comes to things like this and absolutely love knowing what everyone else got, so i hope you guys do too. Also, just because we only get chance to show you a few, that does not mean we do not love them all a lot! Thanks everyone who bought for us this year.

Today we have decided to show you our main present, our Nikon coolpix l830 that we were aware that we were getting and were so excited for! All blog pictures will now be taken on here rather than our iPad so hopefully picture quality will improve for you! Woo hoo!
(A couple of example pictures we have taken today to show the quality)

This camera is a nice one for beginners who like taking a few photos in their spare time, as it is not too much to understand but is absolutely amazing quality in the photos.


My parents bought this from argos in the sale, but I'm sure it will be available in a lot of places.



It has a 34x optical zoom and a flip out camera screen for easier access to awkward, hard to reach areas! It takes 4x AA batteries rather than a chargeable cable, and it comes with four initially to start with. It also comes with a strap and a lens cover, with a USB cable also. The flash is flip up.

We are so pleased with this present so thank you very very very much to our lovely Mum and Dad who bought us one each.

Comment below what you received this Christmas, as we said, we love to be nosey at other peoples presents for inspiration! Oh, and MERRY CHRISTMAAAAS!

Christmas is coming!

♥♥♥
Hello everyone!
So, now that it is officially December, it is safe to say that it is nearly Christmas! WOOO! I CANNOT CONTAIN MY EXCITEMENT. On Sunday, we decided to decorate our house as a family for Christmas, including buying our tree from Morrisons. We always choose a real tree, they smell so so lovely and christmassy, ahhhh. Ours is 6ft and cost £45.00, we love it! It's the best one yet!
We have taken a few pictures to share with you of what some areas of our house now look. Enjoy!
This noel plaque we have hung onto our tree, and is so gorgeous and glittery. 
What would Christmas decorations be without a candle cottage?
This cute little nativity set we bought from avon a couple of years ago, and we always put it up even though we are not really religious. You can buy similar ones on ebay and if you are interested click here.
Of course, you have to listen to Christmas songs through Decemeber! Band aid 30 is our favourite at the moment. 
A nice little jar of candy canes is a great idea for guests to just take one whenever they like during the festive period. 

We hope you have liked looking a little bit into how we have decorated our house this year for Christmas, only 22 days now! WOOHOO!
Are you decorations up yet?

Melting snowman bath melt review♥

♥♥♥
Hello everyone!

Today I have another review post for you, and I will be showing you the 'melting snowman' from lush. I used this tonight and when I got out of the bath my skin was so so soft, and the bathroom smelt gorgeous! 

(Apologies for the pink on his head, he doesn't come like that it is just that we have been storing it with other lush products ahaha).

The melting snowman is part of the lush autumn/winter 2014 range and it is so nice! If you prefer to have colourful, fun baths then this probably isn't for you, because it doesn't create a colour or bubbles in your bath, it just makes your skin super soft and it smells so relaxing. 
He is created with almond oils and cocoa butter, the reason he makes you so soft. 
I would definitely recommend buying this for days when you want a nice bath, but nothing over the top. 

Thank you for reading,

Natural drugstore eye makeup for autumn/winter

♥♥♥
Hey everyone! How are you all doing?
Today we are wanting to share with you a makeup look we have been loving so much at the moment, and we just think it is perfect for this time of the year! It is a natural shimmery eye look, that I personally think would suit any skin type. We posted photos of this on our Instagram agesssss ago, so sorry if you are having to see them again! All the items listed below will be linked.

The products you will need are:
- A darker gold toned eyeshadow for the crease to middle of the eye, we used one from our sunkissed palette but I'm afraid I can't tell you the name because it doesn't say! I will find one online and link this to it, otherwise our sunkissed was from bodycare for £1.50, or you could even use the bronzer from the sleek contour palette. Sorryyyyy....
 ♥♥♥


And this is your finished look! I love how the gold contrasts with my eye colour, so Christmassy and perfect! Of corse feel free to change around the products, I would love to hear any dupes if you any!
 Thanks for reading!

Things we've been loving | Tanya Burr Nail Polish Riding Hood.

♥♥♥
Hello everyone! 

A few minutes ago a blogging thought sprung to my mind, and that was that, every so often, we wrote a post on something we have been loving, sort of like a monthly favourites but instead not monthly, just whenever we feel there is something worth sharing with you. These posts will mainly be relatively short too. Ideally, we will probably just see how it goes and if you guys enjoy them we will continue with it!

Today we thought we would write a little to you about the 'Tanya Burr cosmetics Riding Hood' nail colour quickly, as it is too good not to show.

By the way, sorry about the picture qualities at the moment, we have been using just our phones and iPads, but we are getting a Nikon camera for Christmas which we are super excited about, so the quality will improve shortly. 

Just recently I have been glued to this nail varnish, it is just such a beautiful autumnal colour and lasts so well once on your nails. We bought ours from Superdrug for £5.99, slightly pricey for a drugstore nail paint but well worth it. 

You can also buy them from feelunique.com

The nail paint is so easy to apply with the cubed lid and has such a nice consistency to it, it's just PERFECT! It dries so quickly too, so if you are one of them people who is very impatient when it comes to letting your nail varnish dry, like I am, then this one is for certain for you!

Mini haul | Lush, Superdrug and Boots.

♥♥♥
Hey everyone! 
Today we went to town and bought a few little things to get us in the christmas spirit, so we thought we would share them with you today. You probably know by now that we just love lush so much and I swear we need to go to some kind of lush rehab haha, so a lot of the things will be from there. I understand that some things can be a bit expensive, but never the less they are too good to walk away from.
Firstly is the luxury lush pud from lush. This was £3.50 and it just smells like christmas! When you drop this into the bath and watch it fizz into many different pastel colours, it gives out a lovely relaxing lavender scent. This one shares it's scent with the twilight bath bomb, which I personally haven't tried, but if it smells as good as this then it's definitely next on the agenda!
You can buy the 'Luxury Lush Pud' here and in Lush stores. 
Next, we have the Melting Snowman. He costs £2.25 from lush and is a beautiful Christmas bath melt. Inside is cocoa butter and almond oil, so he will leave your skin feeling as soft as ever. Besides how amazing he smells, he was just a must have before the Christmas stock goes again....JUST LOOK HOW CUTE! 
You can buy your own 'Melting Snowman' here or in Lush stores. 
The last thing we bought from lush was this candy mountain, and has to be my favourite lush product of all time! It was £2.75 (bargain) and this sweet treat will turn your water a bubbly pink shimmery colour. It smells of the classic christmas snow fairy shower gel. If you read our other Lush haul blog you would have seen that we bought the magic wand a few weeks ago, and this has the exact same scent but in bubble bar form. I have also got the rock star soap, and I think it would be amazing to use that in a bath using candy mountain; the smells are very similar yet the best ever! ("Sniff my candy mountain", if you know where that's from comment below and we will love you for it;P) Crumble under running water and enjoy a bath of  sheer joy! 
You can also buy this here or in Lush stores.
Then we popped into Superdrug, and as some of you may know, Ruth Crilly (A model Recommends on Youtube) has recently bought out a beautiful range of dry shampoo's. We will admit that we haven't really watched Ruth's youtube channel before, but we heard that this is a product that everyone has been adoring recently so had to try it, and we don't regret it! There are five scents altogether in the range, and can be bought in travel size or in large size. We opted for the Paris Floral fragrance in the bigger size, and it works so amazingly well. It cost £2.32 on offer, sooooo cheap for what it is! It smells gorgeous too! We will definitely be repurchasing and subscribing to Ruth to check out her channel!
You can buy any of Ruth's colab range here (Superdrug online) or here (feelunique.com) or in Superdrug stores. There is currently an offer on in Superdrug, so get your hands on them fast! 
Our next Superdrug product we have wanted for so so long now, and it is the Zoella beauty creamy madly dreamy body lotion. We purchased the candle, soak opera, and the body mist a while back, and have loved using them so much! All the products from Zoe's range smell the same, and I have to say, well done to Zoe for picking out such a great, unique scent! It is something I have never really smelt before in any products, and it really does work well! This cream cost us £5.00, and again, worth the money. Zoe has a youtube  channel too (happy #SUGGSUNDAY!) and a blog, both of which we love, and inspire us on this one. 
You can buy this here (Superdrug Online), in superdrug stores or here (feelunique.com). 

Finally, we went to boots. We have had the maybelline 24 hour colour tattoo in the shade 'On-And-On-Bronze' for a while and we love it, so decided to buy a different shade. This is 'Permanent Taupe' and in my opinion, is a perfect autumn shade. It costs £4.99 and is a great drugstore dupe for the mac paint pots. We will be using this more as an eye shadow base, rather than a shadow, because it is really natural looking. It is really high pigmented, meaning that you don't need to use much of it, so will last a long time. 
You can buy your own here or in boots stores.
