advent-calendars
It still surprises me how early on in the year Beauty Advent Calendars are released and how quickly they sell out. I made a whole video about them in October but if that was a little too early for you I thought I would recap on the ones which are still available.

Ciate London Mini Mani Month- HERE
Perfect for any nail polish lover, it’s one of the original beauty advent calendars. It’s filled with eighteen mini paint pot polishes and even includes some exclusive shades, perfect to add a pop of colour to your December.

Sanctuary The Let Go Days Of Christmas HERE
I can’t believe how affordable this one is and if you don’t want to stretch to the average £50+ for a beauty advent calendar then this one is fab. I love the mixture of items behind the doors; everything from body cream to cookie cutters.

NYX Professional Makeup Advent Calendar- HERE
I’ll admit I was a little disappointed by this one as you only get eyeshadows and Soft Matte Lip Creams. I’m not too excited about the eyeshadows but actually, can’t wait to start wearing the Lip Creams as there are lots of different shades for me to try. They’re also adorable makeup minis, which makes everything better.

The Body Shop Beauty Advent Calendars – HERE
This year The Body Shop has three different Advent Calendar offerings, ranging in price. They’re great for anyone that prefers bath & body to makeup but still wants a little makeup. I’m also a huge fan of the boxes instead of the doors as it keeps the box looking nice all the way until Christmas. I had this one last year and I loved it, lots of fab minis which I ended up saving for travel. Little tip: you are supposed to turn the boxes around once you’ve opened them to reveal an image/message at Christmas.

ASOS Beauty Extras Calendar- HERE
Not the most festive packaging but really blogger-esque with the marble print packaging. The brands inside are great and it’s at a good price point too. Inside you can find Philosophy, Elemis, Nuxe and more!

NUXE 10 Beauty Treasures- HERE
A little smaller than the other calendars as it only has 10 doors but it’s a must-have for anyone looking for a beautiful but paraben-free, eco-friendly calendar.

Tanya Burr 12 Days of Christmas- HERE
My younger cousin actually got this one recently and is so excited! It’s a great one for any younger teenage girls and it’s far more affordable than most especially as it’s currently Superdrug’s star buy at only £12! Inside there are nail polishes, lip glosses and glitter pots- great for someone starting off in makeup.

M&S Beauty & Advent Calendar- HERE
Saving the best until last, you might have to do a little hunting around for this one but the website suggests that they’re still available and that they’ll be getting more online. The M&S advent calendar has to be my pick of the lot! It fairly affordable at £35 (with a £35 spend), is a great fun design and most importantly has some great brands and products!

Can you believe autumn is just a few weeks away? It’s actually really starting to feel like it here in London and I’m really look forward to layering up with shades of rust, suede dresses and knee high boots. Below is my dream wardrobe for the following season, let me know what would be in yours in the comments!

!function(d,s,id){var e, p = /^http:/.test(d.location) ? ‘http’ : ‘https’;if(!d.getElementById(id)) {e = d.createElement(s);e.id = id;e.src = p + ‘://’ + ‘widgets.rewardstyle.com’ + ‘/js/boutique.js’;d.body.appendChild(e);}if(typeof window.__boutique === ‘object’) if(d.readyState === ‘complete’) {window.__boutique.init();}}(document, ‘script’, ’boutique-script’);

COTTON USA have asked me to create three outfits around a Palmer//Harding T-shirt. US cotton is a premium product of hight quality which means it’s long lasting, comfortable and perfect for summer. It’s also a natural, responsibly sourced product which really appeals to me too.
I’ve created an everyday look, evening look and festival look which should have most events covered by simply changing the bottoms and accessories. Personally I love the everyday outfit as I love the pastel shades and tightened waste but think the festival look is also perfectly comfortable but fashionable and the evening look really helps dress up the t-shrit. 

Check out the video below for more info on each look and about COTTON USA

As I am sure most of you have noticed the ASOS sale has started a little earlier than most other shops. As it isn’t often you see beauty items on sale (well in comparison to clothes) I thought I would edit the sale down to my top 9 picks.

1. Sophie Webster Nail Wraps £5.50 // Illamasqua Snow Glitter £11 // Lord & Berry Lip Colour £11 // OPI I snow you Love me £8.50 // Benefit  Hot to Trot £19.50// Pixi eyeshadow set £18 // Hersheson Ion Brush £17.50 // Makeup Bag £6.50 // OPI Minnie Style £8.50 

The sale isn’t actually a whole load cheaper, just a few pounds here and there but there are still some great products especially if you are after some great Nail polish colours. I actually have these Nail Rock Wraps and am saving them as they are my absolute favourite. I’ve actually had this Illamasqua Snow Glitter polish on my wishlist on my eye as it just looks like magical snow and unlike any other nail polish I own. The Lord & Berry Lip colour set seems like an absolute steal, four lip pencils for just £11!
