DUPE : Urban Decay Naked Palette Or W7 In The Buff Palette Neutral Eyes Palette





(price now increased to £4.25 plus 50p delivery)

I was casually browsing on Amazon and this little gem popped up in the items you might like box , its the W7 In The Buff Neutral Eyes Palette . Its a blatant rip off of the Urban Decay Naked Palette , but who cares when it costs ONLY £4 with free delivery ! (price has since increased ). I haven't used it yet, but i just had to take a picture and show you now as i couldn't contain my excitement . There is a mixture of 11 shimmery and matte shadows , a double eneded brush and the tin is the same as the Naked 3 . My first impressions of the palette are that the packaging is great , selection of shadows great and I'm really eager to try this palette , I can't wait to report back to you all .

OOTD and a little ramble


My new Jacket from Yours Clothing is amazing ! Super Stylish don't you think ? Have you spotted my new festive iPhone cover ? Its a friggin reindeer ! Primark £3 amaze balls :-)

 Its gone a little quiet on the blog, I'm just not feeling the blog love right now. I am loving reading every ones blogs , but i just cannot find that blogging mojo. I guess I'm suffering from the every ones more stylish than me , every ones more pretty blah blah , I'm sure ill be posting again soon but for now it may go a little quiet . Ive never been the most regular of posters but i want to be , it just never happens !

I have joined up to a secret Santa Swap so that post will be coming in the next few weeks , really excited as I've never done any thing like this before.

I shall leave you with yesterdays outfit , a rather mismatched outfit with clashing prints , my coloured print scarf totally clashes with my patterned trousers , but who gives a jefff ! :-)

Christmas Wist List - Joules

It is that wonderful time of the year , when we start scribbling our mile long wish lists , in the hope that Santa will deliver these wonderful wishes upon us on Christmas day. Today i wanted to share a wish list made up of goodies from joules.

Joules range of duvet covers takes the top spot on my list soooo dreamy and would be perfect in my floral bedroom . I also want the obligatory Christmas bling and it has to have a little of my favourite colour purple . Everyone wants slippers for Christmas right ! I love to have toasty feet,  and the tartan scarf is bang on trend and will keep me all snugly. Carrying on the theme of being snugly and warm this winter Joules range of quilted woman's jackets will keep you warm , I've never own a quilted jacket so it would be nice to try a new style coat for Xmas . Oh the handbag , a girl can never have enough handbags ...

The Christmas Tag


Ive always wanted to do a tag post but never quiet found the right one for me until i stumbled across the Christmas tag from Lipgloss and Lashes , I can't think of a better first tag to do as i love Christmas !!! So here we go .

1. What is your favourite Christmas drink?

I am a loyal Costa girl , Starbucks has nothing on Costa (nah nah nah ) . Costa make the most amazing Black forest hot chocolate mmmmmm its like drinking pure heaven and it really does taste just like a black forest gateaux smothered with cream on the top with chocolate shavings and cherry sauce … Oh god i think i need it now !!

2. What is your favourite Christmas smell?

If i could some up Christmas in one smell it would be the Winter fragrance from The White Company the fragrance is made up of sweet cinnamon , clove and a dash of orange.


3. Do you have any Christmas traditions?

When I was little my parents gave us a chocolate box. This chocolate box was a old shoe box that they covered in Christmas wrapping paper and filled with fun sized chocolate bars with the obligatory golden coins ,mini Santa's and candy canes , this is a tradition i have carried down to my children .

4. What's the one thing you really want to get from Santa this Christmas?

I actually just bought my christmas present , it is a VivIenne Westwood  frilly snake bag a present from my children , they have such good taste !

5. Have you ever built a gingerbread house?

No . Considering i have children this is terrible ! I will make it my mission this year to make a gingerbread house !

6. Who is your favourite person to buy presents for?

My nan , its hard as she wants for nothing , its so hard i usually cop out and buy her a cd or tin of biscuits ! 

7. What is your favourite Christmas song?

All I Want For Christmas Is You by Mariah Carey enough said .

9. What is the weirdest gift you have ever received?

A pink apron :-( It was the end of a beautiful friendship , it was such a thoughtless gift from a close friend. Its also a long story but we shall just leave it at the fact she bought me a apron !

10. Do you like to dress up for Christmas or stay in your PJ's?

This is tricky , if i had my own way we would all be in Christmas PJ's but for photo and visitor purposes we get dressed up in our Christmas jumpers !!! . Its a tradition i started last year we all had Xmas jumpers it was really fun , you don't have to spend much at all as prim ark have cheap jumpers for around £6 !

I hope you enjoyed the Christmas tag , please let me know if you do it too , thanks to lip gloss and lashes for the questions .

OOTD - ASOS Red and Black animal print dress


Dress / ASOS
Jacket / Evans 
Leggings / Asos 
Booties / Evans

Last i night i attended the St. Davids Cardiff shopping event and this was my outfit of choice for the night. This Asos swing dress has done the rounds on plenty of plus size blogs over the last few months and i can see why as its a really comfy on trend dress , hides all lumps and bumps and has a trendy animal print. I added my new leather jacket from Evans to give the outfit a little edge i can't wait to wear this jacket more it was definitely worth the splurge ! I can see this becoming a favourite outfit over the winter months .
