It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas... everywhere you go!
Winter is here, girls, and its time to wrap up warm- in style of course!
I love Christmas, its such a festive season and it really brings people closer together! There is nothing like sitting around a fire, eating chocolate and watching crap TV with your family. Then there are the parties, and of course snow (for those lucky enough to have any)
This season thick cable knits in cream colours are in fashion, and i have to say cable knits are my favourite thing right now! I also love a lot of the winter stuff in River Island, there are some really cute bobble knit jumpers, and fur lined boots! (It's practical. You NEED these clothes and boots! Buy or risk freezing to death. You cant argue with your health)
Oh, and another thing. I LOVE this faux fur coat. Its gorgeous.

My new cosmetic brush set

It's 25 pieces, silver, and i love it.
Can you guess yet?
My new makeup brush set! Yaaaaay!

There is literally every brush under the sun in this set, there are even two huge fan ones which i have no idea what their purpose is. Anyone know?
I've had this set for around a month now, there wasnt a point when i went to get the door and there was the postman with my wonderful brush set. No, instead, it was when my sister (who was ordering things like hiking poles for her trip to South America and getting them sent to our house. This sister was also visiting to collect said things and see us) was  opening up all of her stuff and she just looked up and was like 'Oh...?' and she handed it over and it was my brushes. The mail man had elastic-banded her hiking poles with my brush set because it had the same address on it. This was when the realisation hit that they arrived a week earlier, i had been waiting unnessacarily. Not to worry, they make up for it! The brushes are so. so. SO soft! They are very high quality, comparable to MAC brushes for a fraction of the price. The set was about the same price as one MAC brush would be.

Here is what is included : Eyebrow comb/brush duo, mascara wand, eyebrow brush, one of those foam eyeshadow brushes, a lip brush, 3 different sized tiny eyeshadow brushes, a flat brush (small), a medium small eyeshadow brush, a crease brush, a medium fan brush (no idea what its for/called) a medium flat brush, a large flat eyeshadow brush, a small, medium and regular sized concealer brushes, an angled concealer brush, a foundation brush, an angled contour brush, a blush brush, a big face brush and an even bigger face brush. Then there is a small eyeshadow brush which you can take apart and another huge fan brush. There is even a spare pocket for you to put clips or whatever in. I put disposable foam eyeshadow brushes in there (:
The set can be purchased from
It's a Fraulein set


My Coastal Scents cameee! (Review)

It's been a while since i blogged and so i've had my Coastal Scents 88 palette over a month now. Before i was worried that it wouldnt come before halloween but it did! It came one evening when i was with my friend Tessa. My excitement grew inside me as i (carefully)  ripped the box open! Needless to say what we spent that evening doing...
Anyway, the colours are amazing quality, well pigmented, blend well and there is soo much choice! 88 colours, i havent used them all yet (obviously) and sometimes i doubt i ever will, let alone use the pallette up! This will be cherished for years. I cant remember just how early it came but i think it came on the tuesday after the sunday i ordered it. So that would make it 7 working days, rather than the 12-24 working days that i had expected. It came quickly and it was well packaged (So thankyou eBay) I was a little skeptical about ordering it from Hong Kong (like i said before) but there was a pretty impressive 303 previously sold so i did it anyway. This palette is well worth it, i'm glad i got the matte first instead of the shimmer as some of the colours are actually undeniably shimmery. (Don't worry, nothing too disco-ball :)

Coastal Scents!
Oh and i must say, it was smaller than i imagined it to be. I mean, it's not small, but i thought it would be about half the size of my laptop and it's a bit smaller than that. In many ways, this is a good thing as it's really easy to fit into your bag.

I kind of scuffed the top of it, not sure how though!

The colours are much brighter, the camera doesnt do it justice (:

In my opinion, this is a MUST BUY!
