Holiday Gift Guide: for Her!

The holidays are coming around so quick and Christmas will be here before we know it.  So I thought I'd go a gift guide on ideas of what to buy for mum, sisters, girlfriends etc to help with those of you that are stuck on what to buy and don't want to leave it to the last minute.

This is an awesome product.  I don't have one myself but I am seriously looking into getting one.  I've heard so many great reviews on this.  It's basically an electronic face brush that vibrates and pulses against your skin removing all the dirt and dead skin cells.  The one I've attached is the Mia one at £90 but they have just brought out the Mia 2 which retails at roughly £112.  However, if you didn't want to spend that much and you wasn't sure if you'd like it Olay do a really good version at £30 


Urban Decay Naked Palettes 

I absolutely love these eyeshadow palettes.  I have the first one and really want to get the second and basics.  They have the most gorgeous array of neutral tones with a mixture of matte and shimmer.  They are so beautiful and super pigmented.  Perfect for creating a smokey eye.  If you know someone who is a lover of neutral eyeshadows like I am then this is definitely the palette for them.  


Every girl loves a pair of shoes but some girls really really love their shoes and I'd say I'm one of those girls.  During the winter months I love rocking a good pair of boots.  One of my favourite places to shop for shoes is Kurt Geiger and they emailed me yesterday to say they are doing 25% off everything until Sunday so I thought I'd have a cheeky look on their website. These are really cool ankle boots with a chunky heel.  I think they'd look cute with a knitted jumper dress and tights or with skinny jeans and a leather jacket. These are new in and I reckon they'll be quite a sell out.  Again I think they would look fab with a dress or jeans and will definitely keep her warm and stylish throughout winter.  Who doesn't want that!


A scarf is a good present to buy, especially if it's for someone you don't know that well, maybe a secret santa present or someone at work.  I actually bought a scarf for my boss last year and she loved it.  Zara have got some fab scarves in at the minute in an array of colours and patterns.  They are good quality chunky scarves too so guaranteed to keep her warm.

Nail Polish Set

Another gift idea I came up with was a nail polish set.  I think this is a good gift for girly girls who love having pretty nails.  My favourite nail polish brand is Nails Inc.  I think it's so good because it lasts up to a week without any chipping which is good for a busy girl like me who doesn't have time to keep touching up my nail polish.  This is my favourite set{adwords_producttargetid}&utm_content=&utm_campaign=&{adwords_producttargetid}&network={network}&mobile={ifmobile:1}&search={ifsearch:1}&content={ifcontent:1}&creative={creative}&ptid={adwords_producttargetid}&adposition={adposition}&gclid=CMiI3M_Oh7sCFZGWtAodSy0AAQ.

Hair Tools

I think hair tools are a great gift for a girl because I think it's something that not many girls will go out and buy themselves because they don't always feel like they need it.  But oh honey, you do.  My favourite hair tool brand is Remington.  I have the conical wand, straighteners and pro curler by them and I love every product.  They heat up super fast and give a great finish.  Check them out!


If you were looking for a more expensive gift maybe for your girlfriend then I think a camera would make a great present.  You can get some great deals on digital cameras at the moment and I think my favourite brand would have to be Samsung.  I particularly like this one!3391!3!30417239244!!!g!60594568435!&ef_id=lp9PEFDS@CIAAM59:20131128135320:s 

which is purple although I think it comes in other colours but hey I like the purple!  It also has 16.2 megapixels, 5x optical zoom and films in HD.  It also has a screen on the front so you can take cheeky selfies without cutting your head off which I thought was rather cool!


Perfume always goes down well as a gift and I know is rather pradictable but I had to include it.  It's best to know what sort of perfume she enjoys to wear rather than just guessing as women have different tastes and there's a lot of perfume on the shelves out there.  One that I have actually asked for Christmas myself this year is Marc Jacobs Dot  

I have Marc Jacobs Daisy already and it's one of my faves.  My ex housemate got this for Christmas last year and I fell in love but I think like hair tools, perfume is another thing that girls don't always buy for themselves.

Make-Up Brushes

Make-up brushes make excellent gifts especially for girls who enjoy their make-up.  I think a nice brush set would be a good present to receive and Real Techniques do a few of them.  I think a good one to buy for someone who is just starting out with make-up or maybe doesn't have many brushes is the core collection 

this includes a foundation brush, contour brush, small detailing brush and buffing brush.  So all the basic ideal brushes.  I actually have this collection and use the brushes every day.  They are so worth it.

So those are all the gift ideas I came up with.  Hope you found this useful!

My Favourite Looks From Fashion Week

Last month was 'Fashion Month' with showcases and catwalks taking place each week in different locations across London, New York, Paris and Milan.  Although I have been attending London Fashion Week for several years now, this time around I was in California and unfortunately could not attend any shows. However, that did not stop me from catching up once I was back from my trip to check out all the latest trends.  I was also browsing the   Esprit website   and noticed they had some awesome pieces just like the trends seen on the runway last month. Here are some of my favourites that I think are going to be hot this season and where you can copy the looks for less! Floral prints at Gucci.  You can shop the look for less here . All black at Marc Jacobs.  Shop the look for less here . Bows at Chloe.  Shop the look for less here . Sparkles at Alexander McQueen.  Shop the look for less here . Not only does   Esprit   do runway trends for

New Year, New You

As with every New Year, we make resolutions (you can see mine in my last post) but I think for most of us it's about becoming a newer and better person than we were last year.  I've come up with a few ways we can make little changes to become a newer and better you. New Hair I've said in many of my posts how much I like to change my hair and you can read about my hair dying experience here and my hair extensions experience here .  However, it needn't be a drastic change, just a little trim and some subtle highlights .  Whenever I change my hair I always feel like a new woman! New Wardrobe The New Year is probably the best time to invest in some new clothes because there are so many sales on.  You don't even have to spend a lot of money, I love affordable brands such as Esprit which do really on trend pieces at high street prices.  With a new wardrobe you will not only feel better but look better too! New Hobby The New Year is a gre

How to Wear a Pink Lip

Wearing a pink lip can sometimes be quite hard, especially if it's a rather bright and vibrant shade but I think it looks so lovely for this time of the year. My favourite shade of pink is Impassioned by MAC .  It's very bright and has such a creamy texture that it glides on really well and stays put for quite a few hours.  I find I never have to wear a lip liner with this one either. When wearing a pink lip I think it's important to get the rest of your make up right so that you don't look washed up and colours don't clash. So starting off with the skin I would get myself nice and tanned.  My favourite tanners at the moment are the Superdrug Solait tan in dark and also Tan Truth which you can get from Sally's Salon Services.  Where I have just come back from Ibiza I have still got a bit of a tan so every few days I use the St Tropez Everyday gradual tanner and this helps top up my tan slightly. Then you've got to get the make-up right so
