Style | Jingle Bell Ball with Debenhams


It's been a while since I've seen my legs (or they've seen heels) but it was great to have an excuse to dress up recently for the Capital FM Jingle Bell Ball thanks to Debenhams. We had a VIP suite at the O2 to enjoy the evening's acts including Sam Smith, Craig David, Dua Lipa and Rita Ora with a festive party dress code. I'm so indecisive when trying to pick an outfit for an evening so it was good to have such a huge selection of both online and in-store - so whether you want sparkles or something a more understated, you're covered.

Red has been my colour this season - it is Christmas afterall - so I wore this red lace gown by Chi Chi Manchester. I love the off-the-shoulder detail most - it's the only way I've been able to show a little skin in this cold lately! I paired it with these heeled velvet boots and black Dune bag with gold detailing and the new Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paint to give the look a kick - go bold or go home right?

Natural Hair Update [Video]



A long overdue hair update / where I've been video is now up on my YouTube channel. I felt like an explanation was needed on the year long hiatus and why I moved away from posting specifically about my hair during the past year. 

There's more videos to come so as ever, if you have any requests let me know

The Body Shop Christmas Coconut Collection #Ad


I'm not sure when it happened but I'm now so unorganised when it comes to gifting. I've become the leave all the shopping 'til Christmas eve kinda gal, which can be stressful, but I have a few tricks when it comes to doing gifting last-minute. I like to rely on solid favourites I know a lot of people love, I tend to work off giving what I'd love to receive and if it comes already gift-wrapped, even better.

Body Mist (100ml), Body Scrub (50ml), Shower Cream (250ml), Hand Cream (30ml), Body Butter (200ml)

The Body Shop does this is spades so one of my picks for gifting this year has to be the .* The collection is a gift box with 5 body products inside ideal for the Coconut-lover (or myself) - a shower cream, body scrub, body butter, body mist and hand cream. It's one of my favourite sets from The Body Shop Christmas collection as I've been using items from the Coconut range on and off for the past couple of years. I always go back to them as they make my skin feel so smooth and soft and I adore the subtle sweet scent.

Together the products work so well too. My bodycare routine most days starts with the shower cream with occasional exfoliation with the body scrub concentrating on areas which tend to get dry and discoloured most - my knees and elbows. Out of the shower I'll apply the body butter and mist to finish and the scent has me smelling sweet all day. Throughout the day I like to use the hand cream which has now has taken up permanent residence in my handbag as I always need something to breathe some life back into my winter-beaten hands.

Beauty | 5 Everyday Glosses I'm obsessed with


It's no secret I'm a lip colour obsessive and currently my addiction is of the gloss variety. I tend to go for a more natural look in general so I always gravitate towards neutral shades. It's often hard for me to pick just one favourite (of anything) so here's 5 I'm obsessed with.


(£15/4.2ml) 
I picked this gloss up on a whim whilst browsing the plethora of makeup in Sephora whilst in New York. Without knowing much about the brand I felt the urge to buy it which is unusual for me as I tend to research something to death before I part with my coins. This is a glassy gloss - no glitter or shimmer - and it has a plumping effect so it leaves a slight tingle on the lips. My lips are naturally full but this does make them more plump. The colour pay-off on my deep-toned lips is subtle and natural-looking.

 (£11/4.2ml)*
The ultimate super shiny transparent gloss. I've talked about my love for this already in a separate post exclusively on  products so I'll keep this short and sweet. It's hyped for good reason. My lips feel like butter with this on and it lasts pretty darn well (for a gloss).

 (£16/9ml)
Another I've already gushed about in my Fenty Beauty review back in September which was love at first swatch. It's described by the brand as universally flattering and the *ahem* 'unicorn of nudes' which is a mighty claim but the Fenty gloss does not disappoint. It's a non-sticky, long-lasting, shiny, slightly shimmery, rose-tinted bottle of pure genius (hence my infatuation).

(£8/3.4ml)*
The newest member of my lip gloss arsenal and the most opaque of the products here. I love this most as my lips are two-toned and this shade is pigmented enough to even out the tone and still look natural.
 (£15/3ml)*
The liquid chrome gloss has a lot more impact than the others featured here as it has a golden metallic feel. This particular shade Nova has the chrome effect but is still super wearable for everyday and gives makeup looks a pop without feeling too over done.
