The Body Shop Frosted Plum Range

I love trying a new scent range from The Body Shop, especially when it's one of their festive scents. When I saw that The Body Shop had released a new Frosted Plum range for Christmas 2015, the products instantly went onto my wishlist and I couldn't wait to try them out.

Winter Sales Haul

I didn't realise just how much stuff I'd actually bought in the sales until it came to photographing it all for this post. I'm surprised it's as much as it is, as I really wasn't that impressed with the sales this year, particularly as a lot of the higher end brands I was after were added to the sales really late, or most not at all. I am still really pleased with the things I did get, and I guess it saved me a few pennies anyway. As well as my usual online shopping, I ventured out into the Boxing Day store sales for the first time this year - an experience I doubt I'll ever repeat! We got there nice and early, so town was pretty peaceful when we arrived, but fast forward two hours and everywhere was absolutely manic and I had to get away! So here's a sneak peak of everything I managed to get.

Slimming World Sunday: My Christmas Gain

The Christmas gain was always going to be inevitable, but it's still never nice when it happens. I applaud anyone who can lose weight over the festive period! The 4lb gain I had this year was actually the biggest gain I've had over Christmas whilst following Slimming World. I guess it's because I've taken a much more relaxed approach to the plan this time around, and I knew I really wanted to enjoy the week.

Clarins The Essentials Eyeshadow Palette

I was well and truly spoilt this Christmas, and none more so than by my lovely friend Alison. I was so shocked and excited when I opened my presents on Christmas morning to discover that she'd given me The Clarins The Essentials eyeshadow palette. I'd seen a lot of posts about this palette in the run up to Christmas, and even had a little lust after it when I've walked past a Clarins counter, but I managed to hold off purchasing it - and it's a good job I did!

My 2015 Beauty Favourites

I know you've probably already read a million of these posts over the last week, but hopefully you're not bored of them yet - I know I'm not! I don't really feel like I've tried as many new beauty products in 2015 as I have done in past years, I guess I'd been trying to reign in my spending a little bit. Having looked back, a lot of products in my 2014 favourites still get used often now, but I have managed to find a few products new to my collection in the last year that I've been loving.

Thoughts For 2016

Happy New Year everyone!! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and extended break if you were fortunate enough to get one. I had a really lovely time, but spent so much of it travelling around visiting different people that it just went by way too quickly - and now it's back to work! For my first post of 2016, I thought I'd take a look back over the last 12 months as well as looking ahead to what the new year may bring.
