December Empties!

Well, the end of the month snuck up on me, rather! It’s time for empties again. Since my most recent post was in the middle of December, I don’t have too much to show you, but I should get back into a proper monthly timeframe, so I’m wrapping up the year with the last of my 2013 empties.

My December Favourites

I’ve never actually done a favourites post before, but why not start now? I’ve been using some products this month that I just want to rave about (even if I’ve done so before), so I’ve wrapped them all up into one simple post!


The cold weather, combined with very hot central heating, leaves my skin completely gasping for a drink! I’ve been slathering The Body Shop Wild Rose hand cream on my hands whenever I can. It’s a nice formula – not as perfect as L’Occitane’s hand cream, but still nice – but what sells it for me is that gorgeous rose scent. It’s lasting without being cloying, and definitely not old ladyish! For more general moisturising, I’ve been liking NSpa Passionfruit body butter – not a very Christmassy scent, I know, but I still like it, and this really does a good job of keeping dry skin at bay.  Continue reading

Fab Christmas Lush Haul!

This box is unashamedly princessy! Want to take a look at what’s inside?

We Went To Disneyland!

So, in early November my boyfriend and I had our second anniversary, and, because we’re grown ups, decided to go to Disneyland Paris to celebrate! We had an amazing weekend – the timing meant that although the weather was pretty poor for a lot of the weekend, the parks were nearly empty, and even better than that, everything was Christmas!

I’ve rounded up just a few of the best and most fun photos to show you (to avoid that long boring holiday snaps experience) – we didn’t take any decent cameras, so they’re all slightly lower quality than you might expect! Also, serious warning here: photos may contain a me without make up, after several hours in the rain. You have been warned.


Arriving – we were wowed by the Christmassy entrance!
