Costa Christmas -Blogmas day 11

So as many of you may know costa have had their Christmas drinks and food out for quite a while now, and a few days ago I went in and had some of their festive snacks.

I had the billionaires hot chocolate which was quite nice, maybe a bit too sweet for my liking, but if you like sweet then this is perfect.

I also had a raspberry brownie thing, which was very rich and delicious!

What are your favourite festive costa drinks?

Zoella roller balls and Tanya burr nail polish – Blogmas day 6


Welcome to Blogmas day 6!

About a month ago I made a order on Superdrug and bought the Zoella Christmas rollerballs and the Tanya Burr nail polish set.

The roller balls were £8 and there were 3 of them, blissful missful, gelatau and snowella! They all smell gorgeous !!

The nail polish set is really nice and cost £7. The colours are amazing!

Have any of you got any of the Zoella or Tanya burrs Christmas range?

Christmas Day or the run up to Christmas? – Blogmas day 4


Today I am going to be talking about A subject that I like to think about. Which do you prefer: Christmas Day or the run up to Christmas?

Run up to Christmas

For me the run up to Christmas Starts about midway through December maybe the 10th. Yes I get excited and start opening my advent calendar at the beginning at the month, but when I get really Christmassy is slightly later on in the month. I love Christmas shopping and Christmas baking and buying the Christmas tree etc. I truly is a magical time and one of my favourite times of the year.


Christmas Day and Christmas Eve

I love Christmas Day and Eve, I have so many fun traditions with my family and it is just the best couple days of the year! Thats all I have to say! Its just such a wonder fun time!


So I think that Christmas Day and Christmas Eve win this for me! Which one do you prefer!?


Christmas pancakes – Blogmas day 3

This morning for Breakfast I made myself  some pancakes. My favourite pancakes are Jamie Oliver’s American style pancakes from Tanya Bakes cook book.


So I made the batter and cooked it. I did just plain circles but I also did Shapes such as snowmen and stars with cookie cutters. Side note: I added ground cloves, cinnamon and ginger to the batter.

I drizzled it with maple syrup and ate! I really enjoyed this! What is your favourite breakfast to have as a treat on the weekends?

Also how is your December going? Which advent calendars do you have?

Have a great day!

Lush review: Ickle baby bot

In this post I’m going to talk about one of the cheapest lush products: a small bath bomb called Ickle  baby bot.

This small blue bath bomb is supper cute and smells of lavender but not too overpowering. 

It fizzes quickly in the bath and leaves your bath a pale blue colour and smelling very relaxing. I felt like a mermaid it the pale blue water! It was definitely worth and £1 .95 that I paid for it!! The best things come in small sizes( well at least with this bath bomb!)

Bath cocktail #1

When I have baths I love to use a bunch of different products and I thought I’d do a post on some of my favourite bath cocktails. 

This one is one I really love in summer and consists of just lush and the body shop products ( two of my favourite brand) 
For the actual bath I am using brightside bubble bar from lush and floating island bath melt from Lish. The bubble bar is huge and will do me at least 6 baths ( and probably even more) it smells really nice like orange sweets but nice, it also makes your bath a really nice orange colour

The Floating Island Bath Melt is really small ( but only costs 2 pounds) and it melts in your bath and makes your skin really soft and I think it smells like vanilla. 

The soap I really like to use in this bath is sandstone (also by lush) the scent is really summery and leaves your skin feeling fresh and clean.

I also like to use the mango sorbet from the body shop I LOVE the scent of this and it melts into your skin quickly and is really light. You could also use the body butter.

I hope you enjoyed this post and do tell me if you’d like to see more bath cocktail posts!
