Christmas is coming...

Whether you like it or not December is almost here! AND THAT MEANS CHRISTMAS!
I absolutely love Christmas, like, everything about it. I love the Christmas songs that come out -  I mean, I'm not Justin Bieber's biggest fan but I completely love his Christmas song Mistletoe! Another thing I absolutely love about Christmas is the adverts. It sounds stupid but they are all so cute or funny or beautiful. The John Lewis advert with the bear and the hare is the cutest thing ever (I cried...). I also really like the M&S advert with all the fairy tales and Helena Bonham Carter. It just looks so Christmassy!

One more thing that really gets me excited and looking forward to Christmas is the smells. If I smell cinnamon or candles or pine needles or if I walk outside and it just smells cold I get so excited. Which is why I really love my new shower gel. IT IS SO CHRISTMASSY SMELLING! It's gorgeous.

I just can't get over how close it is and ohmygod I'm just so excited! I really can't wait to decorate the house and have candles lit and the fire lit and watch Elf and The Grinch (which are the greatest Christmas films ever by the way) and when it snows I will be all warm drinking hot chocolate by the fire. I am so excited. 
What about you?

It was my birthday!...

It was my birthday! So, this post is just the things that I got that I thought I would share with you. I absolutely loved everything I got and thought because Christmas is coming up I could give you guys some ideas of what to get people for Christmas?  Maybe it will be useful?

These baby lips lip balms are really good! They tint your lips as well as hydrating them.
This concealer is the greatest concealer ever. Seriously. So I had a bit of a panic when I nearly ran out!

I've been looking for a matt top coat for ages now because I think it looks so nice on black.

This fashion book looks really great. It explains everything to do with fashion design.

THIS PERFUME. Ohmygod. Not only is it amazing how it's black in the bottle, but it smells gorgeous too.

If you haven't seen the film Superbad I advise you to watch it. Now.

My brother always buys me a pair of super fluffy and warm slipper socks!

He also always buys me really nice earrings too. I think the robot earring are so cute! He's a pretty good brother really! (but I'd never tell him)
So, yeah, these are my favourite things right now I guess! One of my friends actually wrote me a poem as well. It sounds silly but it was because I always go on about how neat her handwriting is and so she said she would write something for me. It was actually hilarious! (but I can't really put up a picture of it...) So, just saying, it was a pretty good present! X

Oh my god...

Urgghh, so I'm really not good at this blogging thing...
But I have valid excuses!
First I was in Rome, then I posted, then I lost my camera lead, then I lost my secure bank key, then I had to get glasses, then I had a big exam (a speaking exam in another language - I can't even speak English properly!) , then I had a super grown up call with my bank to get a new key, then I found my old key stuffed down the side of my bed, then I still couldn't find my camera lead, then my camera ran out of charge, then I ordered a new lead and had to wait for it to be delivered, then I had to write an article for design [moves], then my lead came, then I wrote this!
Plus, in the middle of all this I procrastinated because I can't do anything without procrastinating - which usually means I can't do anything.
But it's all okay because I got a bulb for my lava lamp and it looks so cool!! (that's what the picture above is)
But, yeah, sorry. I am definitely going to start posting now because I have my camera back!

Sorry, I've been absolutely rubbish at posting lately. I have had so much on and everything has just all happened at once and I just can't be bothered doing anything (except tumblr of course because the world could be ending and I'd still be on it...)! But anyway, I'm so sorry! I'm pretty rubbish at this whole blogging thing! I promise I will start posting stuff again in a bit!

Also, I know this is nothing to do with fashion, like at all.... but my dad and his friend made their own car and my dad will not stop going on about this video he got my brother to make of it so I would really love you all if you could just check it out.


Just warning you, if you don't like cars this will be the most boring thing you have ever watched on you tube.

I'm back!...

So I'm back from my beautiful, sunny and hot holiday in Rome where it was 23 degrees and I'm now at home where it is cold, windy, raining and about 9 degrees. *cry*
Sorry I haven't posted anything, the internet in the hotel was really slow and I only had my old netbook which is the slowest thing ever! So yeah, sorry about that!
But now I thought I would bore you all with my holiday photos because I have nothing better to do!

I had to wake up at 3 in the morning! :(

We went to the Colosseum! It was huge!

We did a lot of sitting in caf├ęs and eating...

bit of a confusing photo, but I wanted to take a picture of the millions of shoes!

I also went to the Trevi fountain and threw in a coin. (I'm the one in the green top with a rucksack in the right bottom corner)

we also went to the Vatican. I didn't see the Pope though...

They were giving a free sample of a certain flavour to all the men... guess which one...

we were only there for a week :(

So the journey home was pretty rubbish...

I did take about a billion more photos but I didn't think you'd want to see them all! But if you are thinking of going on a city break or holiday or whatever you wan tot call it, I really recommend Rome. It was so different to where I live and everything is just so old! It was amazing.
