christmas jumper wishlist

As you all know, I love a Christmas jumper. If you didn't, where have you been every year on this blog?! The Christmas jumper market just gets better each year which makes me even more excited. Here are my top picks so far for this year..
christmas 2015 jumper wishlist

Gingerbread Man - Asda // Elsa - Asda // Little Miss Christmas - Truffle Shuffle // Reindeer Fairisle -   Peacocks // 
December 25th - New Look // Adventure Time - Truffle Shuffle

I need ALL of these jumpers! Each one holds a place in my heart for several reasons. The Elsa jumper actually sings 'Let it go' which won't get on anyones nerves at all *wink wink* and the Adventure Time jumper is super cute just because it is Adventure Time!

Surely its acceptable to buy 6 new Christmas jumpers right? ♥

estée lauder double wear foundation

estée lauder double wear

I have been looking for a new foundation for a very long time but to be completely honest I didn't know where to start. I am not the best when it comes to formulas, matching colours or textures but always hear and see such good things about Estée Lauder Double Wear that I thought I would give it a go and see how I get on.

funko time: tinker bell

♥ Every time someone says 'I do not believe in fairies', somewhere there's a fairy that falls down dead. 

I will admit, I've never been a huge fan of Peter Pan. I know shock, horror! I don't dislike it but I just feel that it would never be up there in my top Disney films. I do find Tinker Bell a little cute though, hence really liking this Funko Pop! 

One of the things I love about this is her size, she is slightly smaller than normal Funko's which adds to her fairy cuteness! I love the way her wings tint her shadow blue! She will sit nicely within the Princess collection that I have decided I need to create. ♥

nails inc - regents park road

nails inc regents park road

I find it so hard to think of a colour to paint my nails these days! My hair seems to dye whatever colour they are anyway so I thought I would just make life easier and paint them the same colour! I have had Regent's Park Road for a little while now but it must have been hiding away in my drawer. I saw it and thought it was the perfect colour to hide any hair dye stains!

top 5 mac autumn lipsticks

mac autumn berry lipsticks

This is totally my favourite time of year in terms of make up and fashion. I always find you can get away with so much more with make up as the nights draw in earlier. I love Autumnal shades, so tend to swoon over all of the collections that come out in this season. I thought I would show you my favourite MAC lipsticks for this time of year. I find that these are the shades that I always get drawn back to. I love a dark berry shade and this is the perfect time of the year for them to make a reappearance.

pop in a box - November 2015

I actually forgot about Pop in a Box this month. I know, I have no idea how either! I think because I ordered myself a new Funko from them directly that I forgot another little treat was coming. 

When I saw a little brown, square box sitting on the stairs, I got a little excited as to who was inside..

I really didn't expect this pop and am so, so happy! Lewis has tried to steal it several times now and it's good to finally have a pop that he is jealous of. 

It's a shame that I didn't get it in time for Halloween, but he will live quite happily on my shelf reminding me of Halloween everyday! I do sing 'Jack, The Pumpkin King...' every time I walk past him now too!

As you can probably tell, there is a slight theme of The Nightmare Before Christmas going on with my collection! ♥

tsum tsum collection

As you will know if you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, I love a Tsum Tsum. If you are unfamiliar with Tsum Tsum's, they are cute, squidgy, tiny Disney plushes that are pretty addictive to collect.

l'oreal volume million lashes feline mascara

l'oreal feline mascara review

It feels like every time I go into Boots, L'Oreal have released a new mascara. I totally made that sound like a bad thing and it's really not, I just cannot keep up! Typically, I caved in slightly and picked up the Volume Million Feline mascara to try.

my shimmering purple make up look

I hope that you all had a lovely weekend. Mine absolutely flew and I can't believe that it is Monday morning already (cry!) I always find that in winter time seems to fly by more. I think this might be because it constantly feels like nighttime! 

I did find a spare 5 minutes of daylight though to capture this look that I have been wearing a lot lately. I love a purple eyeshadow and Autumn is the perfect time to bring out the darker berry tones. 


For this look I used: Benefit Brow Zings // MAC Black Grape eye shadow // Estée Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Mascara // MAC Springsteen blusher // L'Oreal Sin for Peach Balmy Gloss // Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation.

This eye shadow has a certain little something about it that I love, but for some reason it always seems to get a little lost in my drawer. Now I have found it though, it will definitely be used a lot more during the winter season! ♥

funko time: jack skellington + vampire teddy

jack and vampire teddy funko pop

So I received an email from Pop in a Box earlier in the week letting me know about new pops in their shop, bonus! Once I saw this limited edition Jack Skellington and Vampire Teddy funko, I immediately caved and knew I had to have it.

funko pop favourites #1

funko pop wishlist

As you know, I have a slight obsession with Funko Pops. If you don't then where have you been?! I don't actually treat myself to many of them, just the occasional splurge and my Pop in a box subscription which means that my wishlist's are forever growing. 

I am aiming to try and own all of the Funko Pops above at some point. They are way too cute and would be perfect displayed in the Funko room I have dreamt up in my imaginary house. 

Grandpa Munster - What more can I say? It's the eyebrows.
Catbug - I have wanted this one for ages and the keyring version too!
Dancing Groot - This has been on my wishlist for a while, but I have been promised him for Christmas so fingers crossed!
Angry Stay Puft - He would sit just nicely next to my original Stay Puft, I could use them as bookends..
Gunter - My favourite Adventure Time character, I don't know how I have resisted this one so long. 
The Beast - Out of all of these Funko's I think I may try and get him next. Favourite Disney film everrrrr!

They are quite a random mix, but totally me! Would any of these Funko's be in your wishlist?
