New year, new start!

Hello everyone!
As 2012 ends and 2013 begins I thought i would share my new year resolutions and what i hope for the new year.
I know this isn't what i usually post but i want my blog to have aspects of my life as well, i hope maybe my resolutions may inspire you and we can take on the year together.

In previous years i have always made new years resolutions and never stuck to them or completed them. I think last year was to keep my room tidy and as i am sat here now surrounded by the mess of my room, i don't feel to positive for the new year. But maybe posting them here will pursued me to keep at least some of them.
What i will do in 2013:
♥ Decorate my room to the way I want it, I have never been completely happy will my room there has always been something i want to change or something i want to do. So i really want to save my moolah and decorate and design my room to the way i want.
Keep my room tidy, it actually sometimes depresses me when my room is messy, but as hard as i try i can never keep it tidy, mainly due to my laziness and also to the fact that i don't like the way it looks (and i know its a stupid reason).
Read more, i don't often have time to pick up a book and have a good read but when i do i really enjoy it, i find it a good way to relax and when i get a good book it makes it 10x better.
 ♥ Feel confident with my body, this is probably on most peoples list this year, whether it is to lose or gain weight it will most likely be there and the majority of the time its that one resolution that is the hardest out of most of them, but i just want to feel more confident in my skin as i never really have been, so good luck to me!
♥ Drink more water and eat more healthy, i know this is kinda similar to the last one, but this year i really want to be more healthy and drink more fluids as drinking more water helps your skin, nails and hair. So its an all round wonder and i just want to eat more healthy in general like eating more fruit and veg and less high in sugar foods and drinks. I really also want to try and drink only water with the occasional Pepsi max because i don't like many fizzy drinks and i only like Pepsi max (i don't like coke or diet coke or Pepsi, ONLY PEPSI MAX- glad we got that sorted!) oh and sprite, but they are the only fizzy drinks i like.
♥ Write a lot more blog posts, I know i only started my blog two months ago, but in the new year i defiantly want to write a lot more, because i really enjoy it and i hope you enjoy reading.

NOTD: Sally Hansen - 01 Radiant

Hello Everyone,
Today I have another nail of the day, since i like doing these as i have a above average amount of nail polish. I wore this nail polish on Christmas day, just because i think it is really christmassy (is that even a word?!). Its a medium, coral red with a shimmer and when it catches the light it is really nice. I applied 2 coats with no top coat and it lasted about a week with no chipping, i really the brand and consistency of these nail polishes and definitely want to try more. These nail polishes are really not that expensive, as i picked mine up at the pound store, but i think they are still only about £3 or £4 if you buy them from other places.
Thanks for reading!

Today i thought i would show you what i got fro christmas as you can tell from the title. Anyways moving on i know christmas isnt about the present and that isnt what it is about but i hope you realise that im not trying to show off or brag about what i got, but i really like these kind of videos and posts, so i thought i would do one of my own.
I didn't really ask for much this year as i didn't need anything, but all the presents i got im really pleased and grateful for.

Haul: Boots

Hello Everyone,
Yesterday, i did some last minute shopping for friends and family and i got a couple of things from Boots for myself, so i thought i would show you.
(sorry for the awful picture) 
  • Revlon Colorstay Foundation (110 Ivory) - Ive been meaning to pick up a new foundation for ages, but i don't wear it everyday so it isn't a necessity. Anyway i was looking through boots and i noticed this one. Ive heard about this foundation a lot on youtube so i thought i would try it. It was quite expensive at £12.49.
  • Real Techniques Expert Face Brush - I bought this brush because I've also heard so much bout these brushes on youtube and I've been wanted to get new brushes fro a while so i thought i would try one out. It was £9.99
  • Spotty Cosmetics Bag - I think this little make-up bag is really cute and it is perfect for my everyday make-up, as i have one of those oh so famous 10 drawer organisers (i got mine from amazon) that stores all my make-up but i found it easier to put my everyday make-up all in one place. The bag is made by boots and i think it was £5.
Hope you enjoyed!

Review: Garnier Fresh Essentials Eye Makeup Remover

Hello Everyone,
A while ago a purchsed the Garnier fresh essentials eye makeup remover just because I ran out of my No7 cleanse and care one, and as its quite exspensive at about £9 (i normally buy it on the boots No7 £5 off vouhers) i thought i would try a cheaper option and i ended up loving it. As it is a liquid eye mkeup remover it does leave residue on your skin for a while, so i dont recommend using it before applying makeup.However it make my eyes feel refreshed after using and when i wake up in the morning as it does contain grape water which soothes the skin, but it doesnt make my eyelids oily or dry or anythings. But i use this at night to remove my waterproof mascara or anyother eye makeup and it gets it off so quick after a couple of swipes. It says that it is sutitable for sensitive eyes, but i dont know how true that is as i dont have sensitive eyes. This is my second bottle of this little wonder and it will probably be a product i will keep purchsing. I dont think it is better than the No7 Cleanse and Care one, but it is pretty close, as it is much cheaper, not oily and is really nice on the skin.

12 Question of Christmas....❄☃

Hello Everyone,
So Christmas is on its way and i thought it would be quite interesting to answer some question about it, Since there are many tags out there, but none that really liked, so i just took questions from different ones and put them together!

1. When do you start getting excited about Christmas?
Normally, i get excited around October/November time, when it starts getting colder and when all the Christmas adverts come on TV and shops are filled with Christmas stuff.
2. When do you put up your Christmas decorations?
We normally put our decorations up on the first weekend in December, but if it was up to me they would be up much earlier.
3. What do you love most about Christmas?
The fact that i get to spend time with the family i don't see much any other time of the year, also i love the leading up to Christmas with decorations, music and snow. But mostly celebrating Jesus and all he gave us.
4. Do you have any traditions?
Not so much anymore, we had more when we were little like putting the mince pie and carrots out from Santa and his reindeer's. I also when me and my brother would go into each others rooms and plan Christmas morning over and over. Another tradition is that my family always watch Home Alone 1&2 on Christmas eve.
5. What is your favourite Christmas song?
I really like All i want for Christmas is you by Mirah Carey and Mistletoe by Justin Bieber.
6. Favourite Christmas movie?
I really love Disney's Christmas Carol, i went to see it in the cinema a few years ago and have watched ever year since. I also love Home Alone 1&2
7. Favourite Christmas nail polish?
I really love No7 Stay Perfect Nail Polish in Totally Teal!
8. Favourite Holiday Food?
I love Terry's Chocolate Orange at Christmas time, as i only ever really eat them at Christmas and i always get one at Christmas. Also I love eating Christmas Dinner, of course!
9. Favourite Holiday Drink?
I love peppermint hot chocolate during the cold months.
10. Is your tree real or fake?
We have a fake tree, as a couple of years ago we had a real tree and it was just disastrous so we've had a fake one ever since.
11. Are you on the Naughty or Nice list?
I'm hopefully on the nice list.
12.Have you ever had a White Christmas?
Yes, many Christmas' have been a white one. Which I love to wake up to snow on christmas, it;s just so beautiful and makes me feel happy. 
Thanks for reading!

Top 4 Winter Must Haves

Hello Everyone,
I don't know about you, but I don't cope with the harsh winter I thought I would show you my winter beauty essentials!
Product #1Clean&Clear Dual Action Moisturiser...a moisturiser in the winter is a absolute must, as my skin gets so dry. I especially like the clean&clear one as it is really moisturising and not that expensive. 
Product #2 - EOS Lip Balm (Sweet mint - Green, Strawberry Sorbet - Pink) in the winter my lips get chapped and they only really get chapped in winter, I really like these lip balms because they smell and taste really good and are really moisturising.
Product #3 - Sleek Blusher (Pomegranate) this blush is perfect for winter as it gives your cheeks a really pretty flush of pink. This blush is really pigmented and is really bLendable.
Product #4 - No7 Stay Perfect Nail Polish (Totally Teal) I love this nail polish as it is a perfect colour for winter as it is a dark green/teal colour that is like a Christmas tree. The consistency is really good and the colour is really good and only need 1-2 coats depending on how dark you want the colour!

NOTD: Exposed - Force 9

Hello Everyone,
Today I thought I would do another nail of the day, so I bought this nail polish when I was on holiday in the Summer, and since its a dark, navy blue. I didn't really wear it and it soon got forgotten! I recently was clearing out my nail polish (which was a heck of a task - as I have a problem, I am a nailpolish-o-holic) and I found this little beautie!
The consistency of this nail polish is really nice, you get great pigmentation with just one coat, and it last a reasonable amount of time if you apply a top coat. Its on the cheaper side of nail polishes, I think it retails for about £4.
Thanks for reading!
