Yes I’m Crazy!

I’ve seen a bundle of other bloggers start their own spending bans and I have tried this before (for a month) and failed miserably. I’m not sure why but I get a little bit of joy when I get new shiny things, but in all honesty, it’s become a bit of an addiction so I’m always on the lookout for that next fix. At first I worried that I wouldn’t have anything to blog about, but since it has just been Christmas I have plenty of new beauty products to share with you and my wardrobe still has plenty on the hangers that you’ve never even seen.

I have had a bit of a run of good luck lately, winning £250 of Evans vouchers, a Ciate nail varnish gingerbread house set and a letterbox Christmas cake of my choice from Baker Days. This giveaway was run by the lovely Sally from The Human Mannequin and I was lucky enough to receive my cake in the post a couple of days ago.

One of my newest favourite beauty products HAS to be Benefit Cosmetics It’s Potent Eye Cream.  I suffer from really bad dark eye circles so I had been itching to give this product a try so when it appeared in my first ever Birchbox, I was extremely excited! Firstly, the packaging is in the usual Benefit style and is really lovely.  The cream looks a little bit of an odd colour but don’t let that put you off as it smells and applies like a dream.

I think I might have a bit of an obsession – floral dresses!  Recently I’ve tried to change things around a bit with my style and wear more suitable clothing for the weather but no matter how many times I dig my jumpers out of the wardrobe, I always seem to get back to a floral dress.  I even find ways to make them winter proof, like adding a warm cardigan or smart coat.  I purchased this floral dress a few months ago from Select as it was a style I had previously worn in a mint green colour and I knew the colours would be perfect to wear during the Autumn.

I was feeling extremely festive back in November, listening to Christmas music on Spotify and generally looking forward to the festivities including cooking for my family.  Then I got the flu… and since then I’ve found it really hard to get back into the festive spirit, which really sucks!  To put myself back in the mood to decorate the tree, bake sausage rolls and sing Christmas carols, I thought I’d take a look at what Next have on offer for Christmas gifts and showcase my favourites.  Next.co.uk is one of my favourite places to buy gifts since they are always high quality, they have plenty of variety and, well who wouldn’t want a gift from Next? I know I would…

My love affair with corsets started around 10 years ago when I was shopping with my sister in London to help her find a structured corset ballgown to wear to a school black tie event for the parents. All very posh I must say! I’d never really heard of corsets before, especially not ones with steel boning but while we were in the middle of a boutique shop scattered with hundreds of different styles I thought I would try one on while I was waiting to ease my boredom. My sister could shop in the Olympics! The result I got was absolutely outstanding. I was a little bigger than I am now, with a 38 inch (or bigger) waist, yet the steel boned corset that I was wearing nipped me in, in all the right places giving me the perfect hourglass figure. I was mesmerised by my reflection staring back at me!
