festive photos

I always love seeing how people decorate their tree & their homes at Christmas so I've shared some of my decoration photos! Most of these are from last year when we lived in our flat, but if we had our own place this year the decor would have been exactly the same, so it still counts! (: We had a red & white theme but also included cute little extras like Gingerbread Men & festive Fawns. I also included a photo of Tilly with her Doggy advent calendar, she's so cute when I show it to her she wags her tail & then lies down as if to say "hurry up Mummy, I want my treat now!". I just had to buy her the advent calendar when I saw it in Pets at Home, the pug puppy caught my eye & reminded me of Tilly dressed up in the same outfit last year! This year we are off to another Pugmas party, I think we are dressing her up as a Christmas tree... I'm tempted to vlog the event, in fact we've got a pretty exciting weekend ahead so it would be good to document it all! Let me know if you'd like to see a vlog of the Pug party & I'll see what I can put together. I'm off to order more things for Tilly's costume now haha (:

christmas wishlist | fashion edition

Lurex Crop Top - £22.00
Flower Printed Shorts - £34.00
MINE Leather Buckled Ankle Boots - £80.00
Whistles Black Irvington Stingray Clutch - £85.00

I've been meaning to treat myself to some new wardrobe staples recently, however with Christmas round the corner I thought it would be fun to put together a wishlist of some items I really love. I always find things, forget about them, then kick myself a few weeks later when I go to buy them & see they've sold out, anyone else do that!? I had to include something Pug related, this festive pug t-shirt is adorable! & I also had to include something really extravagant, a Mulberry Purse. It would be a dream to own a Mulberry purse, I chose the sparkly gold version for this to keep with the festive theme but in reality I'd probably opt for a black or brown one.
Whats on your Christmas wishlist this year?
Oh & don't forget to enter my Lush giveaway here! (:

christmas lush haul & giveaway!

Way back in October I headed into Lush as soon as they launched their Christmas range to browse the goodies & pick up a few treats. I always go a little bit overboard when it comes to Lush Christmas range, I mean I don't even have a bath of my own at the moment but I still bought bath products because I just couldn't resist! 

Starting off with the most colourful of the bunch, Luxury Lush Pud - £3.50 is a bath bomb that not only looks amazing, but smells amazing too. It fills the bathtub with the prettiest array of colours, it's like a rainbow exploded it's so much fun to watch it fizzing away & spilling out lots of different colours! I bought The Melting Snowman - £2.25 as a Christmas gift for Abi one year but never got round to buying myself one so I finally bought this lil guy when I attended the Preston Lush Blogger Event! It's a bath melt with a spicy fragrance which makes the bath water feel very soft which in turn leaves your skin feeling silky soft as it's filled with cocoa butter. Candy Mountain Bubble Bar - £2.75 was one of my favourites last year so obviously I had to get it again this year! It smells kinda similar to Snow Fairy as it's quite sweet, the Lush website says it has the same fragrance as the Creamy Candy Bubble Bar, another of my favourite Lush products, I'm a sucker for anything vanilla based! Candy Mountain fills the bath with lots of shimmery bubbles & a sweet scent, last year I had 4 huge bubble baths with my bar so it's pretty good value for money too! The Christmas Hedgehog - £3.25 is new for 2014, it's not really got a festive scent it's quite floral with rose being one of it's main ingredients. I haven't actually used this yet but I can imagine the bubbles to be really soft as again it's filled with cocoa butter. Butterbear has to be the cutest bath bomb EVER! I love this lil bear so much, it's modelled on another of my favourites Butterball - £1.95 replicating it's vanilla fragrance & creamy cocoa butter bubble bath it nourishes & protects your skin. I bet you guys are sick of me mentioning Snow Fairy Shower Gel - £3.75 by now, but just incase you didn't know it's my most loved Lush product ever! I've done a full review here & mentioned it enough times on my blog so I'll leave it at that! So White - £3.50 is a pretty boring bath bomb on first impressions, however it's fruity fresh apple scent is what made me want to buy it. Once it starts to dissolve it surprises you by revealing a pretty pink centre! Cinders - £2.50 was the bath bomb we all got to make at the blogger event I mentioned earlier. It is probably the most festive scented product I've tried, a warm & spicy cinnamon fragrance with popping candy to give the effect of a crackling fire I'm going to save this one & use it on Christmas Eve! 

Now onto the giveaway part... I've decided to treat one of my readers to a Lush Christmas product of their choice as a little Christmas treat! All you need to do is fill out the Rafflecopter form below to be in with a chance of winning (:

 The giveaway will run from 4th December 2014 until 14th December 2014 & is UK only - sorry! There will be an International giveaway really soon though (:

christmas gifts for her - stocking fillers

Pug Air Freshener - £2.00
LUSH Festive Friends - £14.50

Blogmas day 3 sees the first instalment of my gift guide series, I'll be posting a few more throughout the next couple of days so make sure you check back if you're in need of some ideas or inspiration! I've picked out things I think most girls would love to receive in their stockings, I know most bloggers will appreciate the Nutella recipe book & the LUSH goodies anyway! How pretty is the copper/rose gold coloured passport holder? I also thought it would be lovely to gift someone a gift card, in the form of coffee, cinema tickets or even a meal at Nando's. Our families have been asking us what we would like for Christmas this year, but there is genuinely nothing I really NEED & so my Mum has offered to get us a gift card for Nandos & my Nana is getting us a cinema voucher. It's a fab idea because now Dom & I have a date night to look forward to that won't be costing us much!

Let me know if you have any stocking filler ideas!
