To conclude this (failed) blogmas, I decided to do a little post showing you some of the things I've asked for this year!
Just a quick note: No, I do not expect to receive all of this, this is just a few things that I liked that I'm hoping to get one of two things from. Do you get me? Probably not.
Anyway, I'll just get started now, and I hope you like this post!

This gift guide is for those friends who aren't massive beauty lovers (yes, these people exist!), so I have loads of differen ideas, from books to dvds to even food!
Sorry this is up really late, but I hope you enjoy this post!

Today I thought I'd do a Christmas Favourites, as I have loads of little favourites around Christmas that I really wanted to talk out - from makeup, to biscuits, to candles!
Again, this is up quite late today, and my next post on friday will probably be late too, as it's another gift guide and I haven't had time to properly organise it all yet!
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the post!

Hello everyone! Sorry this post is up a few hours late, I had an english essay to write and it took ages to do!
Today I'm going to be doing a little review (I know I'm going a bit buts with the reviews posts, here, sorry!) on a custom eyeshadow palette I made from Boots last week! I've seen a few different people taking about them so I thought I'd join in and get my own thoughts on what they're like!

Anyway, I hope you like this post, and feel free to answer the questions in the comments!
1. What is your favourite Christmas movie/s?
I love The Holiday, with Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet, I watch it every year! If I'm honest, I don't really have many favourites, I'll honestly watch any movie!
2. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
Christmas morning! Who opens them on Christmas eve? What are you meant to do on Christmas morning if you've already opened them? Most of my friends get new pyjamas or something on Christmas Eve, but I usually get them on Christmas morning, and apparently that's strange?
3. Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?
I can't think of any special memory that sticks out, as our Christmas days are always so fun and exciting, but my favourite memories from ever since I was younger is having my whole family all sitting eating dinner or my mum, dad, brother and I all opening presents on Christmas morning!
4. Favourite festive food?
PIGS IN BLANKETS. I live for pigs in blankets, no matter how much food I've eaten before it, when the tray of these of passes round the room, you simply cannot say no. It's literally 10:30 in the morning and my mouth is watering just thinking about them!
I'm also a big fan of chocolate for breakfast on Christmas morning - who needs their Weetabix when they can have a selection box instead?
5. Favourite Christmas gift?
I honestly can't think of just one! One of my favourites was my laptop which I got when I was 12 or 13, or maybe my iPad, or concert tickets! To be honest it was probably a doll or doll set I really wanted when I was younger!
6. Favourite Christmas scent?
My favourite smell at Christmas is definitely Yankee Candle's Candy Cane Lane, I just finished mine, and I'm missing it! It smells really pepperminty and sweet, I love it!
Yankee Candle always do a 50% off after Christmas on their festive candles, so I think I'll be picking up a large one of Candy Cane Lane this year, as I sometimes get an urge to burn it halfway through the year...
7. Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
I can't really think of anything special or out-of-ordinary that we do, all I can think of is the annual cookies-milk-and-carrots on a plate tradition, and we normally all sit and watch Christmas TV. Last year when my little brother was asleep, I had to help my mum and dad take all his and my presents downstairs to put in the living room, which confirmed the fact that Santa is definitely not real. *sobs*
8. What tops your tree?
We've always had a star on our tree, but I have a little angel on top of the tree in my room, and I think it looks really pretty! I'm not really bothered which goes on the top of the tree, just as it looks really christmassy!
9. As a kid what was the one (crazy, wild, extravagant) gift you always asked for but never received?
I think the one present I swear I asked for for at least 5 or six years was the Sylvanian Families Grand Hotel. It came with a working chandelier, and it was so huge and so cool. I was obsessed with Sylvanian Families, I had practically a whole village: the school, a car, too many houses to count, a dressmakers shop and a salon. I asked for this hotel for years, and I never got it, although I don't blame my mum and dad seeing as it was around the £120 mark! I just looked it up and now it's £140!
Look at it! How could any child not want this?!
10. What's the best part about Christmas for you?
I love the run-up to Christmas, with decorating the tree and shops coming out with Christmas ranges and all that stuff, and I love seeing everyone open presents and seeing your family and just everyone being really happy!
Thank you for reading! I hope you liked this little tag, and like I said earlier, feel free to answer these questions in the comments!
Only 15 days to gooooo!

Hello again! I thought I'd do a review today, as I've been meaning to do a post on this Sleek highlight palette for ages!
This is just going to be a quick little review, as you're getting a whole 12 posts from me, (is that really a good thing? Actually, don't answer that...)
I've wanted palette for ages, as I saw loads of bloggers using it, and it looked so pretty! Although it was sold out of both Boots and Superdrug for ages, and me and my two friends finally found the last 3 in Boots, while Sleek makeup was on a 3 for 2 offer - if that isn't fate, then I don't know what is!
This cost £9.99, which I think is an amazing price for 4 highlighters. In the palette you get 3 powders, and 1 cream highlight (the one in the top left corner).
I'm not really a cream highlighter kind of person, so to be honest, I don't get much use out of it, but I do have a lot of love for the powders.
In this, there's four shades: Ecliptic (the Cream highlight, a bronzy, champagne-y colour. I'd wear this so much more if it was a powder, it's such a pretty colour!),
Hemisphere - a lilac-y toned shade, this does slightly show up on the skin, but it doesn't look like a big purple streak down your face, it looks so amazing and bright!
You also have Subsolar - a yellow, warm highlight, this is blinding if you apply too much, so be careful! Lastly there's Equinox - an orangy, peachy shade that I love!
|From top to bottom: Eclipse, Hemisphere, Equinox and Subsolar|
I normally apply these with either a fan brush or a big eyeshadow blending brush. I find I have to be really light handed with these, or else I end up with a nice white streak across my face. These are certainly not for those 'no makeup' makeup days!
And they last all day, I can go to school, and come home, and they still look the same as they did when I left!
I do have one little complaint: I got this palette in September (I think), and it's only December and I have these funny little bumps and lumps in Subsolar (the yellow one!), but none of the others. Is this normal? Should I still be using it? I don't know why I'm asking if I should still be using it, I'm still going to practically plaster my face in this regularly anyway!
And for my favourites, it's definitely Equinox and Subsolar, I usually mix them together and I get a really amazing highlight that looks so good. Hemisphere, the purple-y one, scares me a bit, as it's purple and I didn't normally wear shades like that as much, but I'm starting to get a lot more wear out of it now.
Overall, this palette was such a good purchase and I would recommend it to anyone who loves a good highlight! I use this palette literally all the time and I'm so happy I bought it!
I hope you liked this little review, I quite liked not doing a huge post talking about just the one product, and shrinking it down loads.
Anyway, I'm writing this really quite late at night, so I'm going to sign off here!
Thank you for reading, and I'll see you on Saturday!
