Must Watch Christmas Movies

It's now December which means Christmas time is definitely here! ... even though the build has been coming for a few weeks now!

With December finally being here it means taking full advantage of the Christmas films and watching them at any chance you can get, so with that being said I thought I would share with you some of my favourite/must watch Christmas movies (that you have to watch every year.. and will never get bored of!)











These are just a few of my fave Christmas films to get you into that Christmas spirit!
Let me know what your favourite films are at this time of the year..

Until next time,

Things to do this Winter/Christmas time


With Christmas creeping up on us and the colder weather being here to stay, why not make the most of it? There is always something going on or make the most of during the lead up to Christmas so I have come up with a few things to do to make the most of this Winter time.

Visit a Christmas market
Christmas markets are a pretty big thing in most towns and cities in the run up to Christmas, they consist of many little stalls, fair rides and other fun things to do... So my aim this year is to visit a Christmas market nearby that I haven't yet been to.

Take Winter walks
This winter I want to take time to go on long dog walks with a nice surrounding area, even though its starting to get really cold it's nice to take in the winter scenery... I actually did this quite a lot last year but have been slacking a bit lately with the fun walks so I would like to find a few nice new dog walking areas. 

Have family time
Family time is very important and although I do spend a lot of time with my close family, I want to make a bit more of an effort to do different things and have nice days out or cosy game nights in... I also have a other family members coming to visit over the Christmas period and would like to spend as much time as I can doing something with them to make the most of the time.

Go to a light switch on
I think pretty much every location has a local light switch on to officially 'turn on' the annual Christmas lights so I want to go to my local light switch on with my family to get into the spirit of Christmas!

Bake
Something I want to do more of this Winter is bake more, whether it be cupcakes, gingerbread men, mince pies or something else... I always love the idea of baking but I never actually do it very often and why not do something fun on the warmth of my home during Winter!

Try festive drinks
Festive drinks is always a big thing when Winter hits especially with the themed cups, I haven't actually tried many of the seasonal drinks about but I aim to do this before Winter is over!

Have cosy movie nights/days
Winter can become very cold so a good way to spend the miserable days or nights is to cosy up and watch the Christmas movies to get in the spirit!

Until next time,

Update..

So.. I thought I would do a little update
I haven't uploaded in a while.
The reason being that a lot has been changing recently and the reason is...



I'm growing a little human inside of me! And I couldn't be happier..

This is just a little post but I really do want to carry on blogging and have fun with it, I'm also hoping to start uploading once a week!

Until next time,

Winter Coats

With it being Autumn the weather has started to get much colder recently and you can definitely tell Winter is not far away! Which only means one thing.. the wintery coats are starting to make an appearance.

I thought that I would put together a little post on some of the Autumn/Winter coats available on the high street right now, also showing some alternatives to some of the higher priced ones!


The Parka
Almost everyone has had a parka at some point as a go to winter coat, its easy to throw on with anything, it comes in various colours but of course khaki green is the classic parka coat colour!
I have found one on Topshop for £98 that has a big fur hood and is also slighty fur lined inside the coat, I also found one on New Look for almost half the price at £49.99, this one is a darker green colour with a matching fur lined hood and I actually prefer the New Look parka which is great!

The Shearling 
The shearling coat trend came out last winter and has become bigger and better this Autumn/Winter. I've found a Topshop Shearling coat at £79 and I love it! It just looks so warm and cosy but stylish too! The slightyle cheaper alternative I found on Matalan at £40 which is very similar to the Topshop one but I must say the Topshop one wins my heart this time!


The Denim Jacket
The Fur lined denim jacket is one of my faves for the Autumn time as its not quite warm enough for them really cold winter days. With this jacket I found a fe
w different alternative that I love at a few different prices so I thought I'd share them all... The first one I found was on Urban Outfitters at £66 which is a classic denim with a fur collar and fur lining. I also found a very similar alternative on New Look at £39.99 which is a brilliant price compared to the Urban Outfitters jacket and it come in two different denim shades; a light denim and a slightly darker one.

I have also found a similar one on Matalan but this one is actually cord but I really like it and it comes in two colours, burgundy and a brown tan colour. At £25 as well you cant go wrong!
Falmer Cord Jacket
The Puffer
The puffer coat is a nice warm coat to have for winter and can be stylish too, I've noticed they have become a lot more on trend recently. The first one I found and really like is from Zara at £79.99.. Zara do wide range of puffer coats in loads of different styles and colours but this is just one I like, I love that it has a fur lined hood aswell. I also found a slightly cheaper version on Miss Pap for £49, Miss Pap also do a range of different bomber jackets on their website. Although the Miss Pap coat is a great price and stylish I much prefer the Zara coat the style and material is just on point!

These are just a few Autum/Winter coat ideas that I have chosen to share with you, there are many other styles and trends available out there from many other highstreet brands, but i hope you enjoyed this new kind of post from me and i will definitely be blogging more from now on!

Until next time,

Benefit Gimme Brow Review


I was quite skeptical about this when I first seen it as I wasn't sure whether it would work with me but I was still just as excited to try it.. When I seen that Glamour magazine were giving away samples with their monthly issue I just couldn't resist giving it a go. As Glamour only gave to colour/shade options (1 and 5) I decided to go for shade 5 as 1 would just be too light for my hair type.

The first time I used it I must admit I wasn't a fan.. I'm not quite sure why, it just didn't look right on me and gave me really dark eyebrows which I'm really not fan of.. But I decided to give it another go and I loved it! It gives you're eyebrows a nice texture and the colour is buildable which I really like as you can sort of find a good amount to put on your brows that suits you. It's also not too heavy or bold which I like but that is just my preference and its really easy to wipe off your skin if you accidentally miss your brow!


All in all i would definitely recommend the Benefit Gimme Brow and may even have to invest in once my sample runs out!

Until next time,

OOTD: Floral Bomber

Recently I bought a floral bomber jacket, I have wanted one for a while but couldn't seem to find one that caught my eye... But I had popped into New Look quickly to have a browse last week and I seen this navy blue one with pink and white flowers and I love it.

I thought I would share with you a little outfit of me styling the floral bomber.. I hope you like it!

I love these ripped mom jeans from Primark.. They are my fave summer jeans at the moment.

Brunch

My favourite place to go nearby is Thaymars ice cream and farm it's like a field area and they make all their own ice cream, they do all sorts of amazing I've cream flavours and sorbets... my personal favourite is toffee banana, it's soo nice! 

Recently my partner and I decided to go brunch. We had noticed that Thaymars had a small cafe area when we had been before so we decided why not give it a try. While we were there we discovered they did milkshakes of which you can chose you're fave ice cream flavour and turn it into a milkshake.

 The food was good and the bacon was done just how I like it... crispy. They even have homemade sauces!



Thanks for reading!

OOTD.

When the weather was a bit warmer and a LOT nicer last week, I wore a new outfit that i bought not too long ago and thought I would share it with you!


The top is a off the shoulder rusty colour and is slightly cropped.
From H&M


The trousers are also from H&M and I LOVE them, I have never owned a pair of wide leg trousers and when I seen these I had to get them. I feel like the pattern has a boho vibe to it and The top and the trousers just go so well together.


The shoes are black closed toe wedges and they go well with the trousers as I'm not the tallest person so the trousers are slightly too long with flats so these go perfectly.
I actually got them from Peacocks in the sale and I think I will get a lot more wear out of these in summer days to come.

Exercising



I'm not the type of person to go to the gym I just feel awfully uncomfortable and out of place because I feel like I hate the thought of people judging me(which is probably so wrong, no one would care how i exercised). Anyway when i heard that Charlotte Crosby brought out her second fitness dvd 3 minute bum blitz! I wanted to give it a try so I did... for about 4 days and then somehow I just lost all motivation, so the DVD was just sitting on the shelf unused until recently I came across it again and decided that I actually wanted to try and get fitter and healthier.

The reason i wanted to try this DVD in particular was the fact that it focuses on the bum as that is the main part of my body that I want focus on and tone the most. I also like the sound of the 3 minute workouts and I find it quite difficult to do long workouts because its not something I'm used to so I'm hoping that this builds up my fitness and gives me a better booty! Because who doesn't hope for a good booty(haha).

I've been doing the DVD for about a week now... I do it about 4 times a week at the moment and I love the fact that each workout is only 3 minutes long because it means that each routine isn't too long and you can have a little breather between each exercise. There are 12 workouts each three minutes long with a warm up exercise to begin and a cool down to end on, which are both good especially the cool down as it incorporates a bit of fun to finish off the workout. I have also been eating healthier in the hopes that this will actually work and that I will see results. Adding to that I do quite a lot of walking due to having a dog so this keeps me moving aswell!

Anyway, I'm hoping that I can stick to this and I feel determined to do it so that i can actually see some results in the long term, I'll keep you updated!

Bank Holiday

Hope you all had a lovely bank holiday weekend!
This post is a little late going up, but in England it was bank holiday weekend and the sun actually made an appearance which made it even better.

On the extra day off that we had me and my other half visited a couple of garden centres as we wanted to spruce up our garden for the summertime (hoping that we get one in England).
We didn't really have too much of idea on what we were looking for but we wanted some nice flower plants to add to our garden as it was looking rather dull, we also picked up a few fruit and veg plants as I really want to try and get into growing my own food as it seems like a fun thing to do. We ended up going to 2 garden centres because the first one didnt really have much of what we wanted. While we were at the garden centre we stopped off in the cafe for cake and a drink... This reminded me so much of being younger as my grandparents would always take us to a garden centre with them, we would look around and then go into the cafe for some food and drink and i used to love it!



As we bought some foody plants we went and bought a little green house which you build yourself and has a cover... We picked up the green house from B&M for only £8.99 which is such a bagain!

We also picked up a couple of hanging sign things and i placed this one next to the green house as it just fits in perfectly and then another in the garden.


All in all we had a nice sunny bank holiday and enjoyed the rest of the day in the garden with our little dog Jake, we took his little teepee in the garden for some shade in case he got too hot!
