Christmas Activities!..

When I was little I always got at least one board game for Christmas and loved playing them especially over Christmas, with my Parents, Brother, Cousins and friends.. I decided to carry this tradition on for my Children, my eldest Daughter is seven years old and she loves spending time playing board games.. Don't get me wrong she also loves her iPad, TV, DVD's and game consoles as much as the next child growing up these days.. But I think it's important families spend quality time together without modern technology getting in the way!...

This year I will be giving her Skribble Head - The fast guessing, draw on your own head game! Can you draw an elephant on your own head in just 15 seconds when you can't see what you're doing? How about a smiley face, a zebra crossing or a bunch of grapes? This fun-packed, hilarious, fast-paced game provides hours of entertainment for the whole family and makes a hilarious after dinner game! All players have to do is guess what is being drawn, correct guesses win chips and the player with most chips wins the game! This is a great family game that draws on creative skills whilst being a lot of fun for everyone! The game is best played with three or more players; and is ideal for those over the age of 8 years, priced around £14.95.
My Daughter has such an inquisitive mind and is constantly asking questions and telling me facts she's learnt at school, so thought this would be perfect - Kids Trivia Plus 3rd Edition - A tin stuffed with trivia, Puzzles, riddles, the world around you and things they don't teach you at school - Hours of fun for children with this attractive tin filled with 300 colourful cards with trivia questions, fascinating facts and actions. A tin full of fun to keep the kids entertained! Age: 7+ Kids Trivia Plus is the fun trivia game created especially for children, priced around £9.95..I know she will enjoys hours of fun playing these games and will keep us occupied on Christmas day and stop us watching all the repeats that are usually on TV..
I also decided to pick this activity for my Nephew who is Three and totally OBSESSED with Thomas & Friends... He also enjoys scribbling on walls.. So when I saw this I knew it was George in a box! Thomas & Friends Activity Tablecloth - Young fans of Thomas the Tank Engine will love this fantastic Activity Tablecloth. The huge double-sided pre-printed tablecloth is full of illustrations to colour as well as lots of activities such as mazes, word finds and dot-to-dots to help to keep children entertained. This giant tablecloth comes with 5 washable markers and is fully washable so it can be used time and time again, it is suitable for ages 3 and over, priced around £15.00

L'Oreal GlamBronze La Terra Bronzer

It was this summer’s must-have bronzing powder with a tribal print!

L’Oréal Glam Bronze La Terra, created with silky micro pigments for a soft, natural looking tan. It’s a bronzer you’ll always want to wear, combining a luxurious velvety touch and totally addictive summer fragrance, to create a sensual, glamorous summer. It is a bronzing powder that can be used for both face and body. Formulated with fine film technology, the bronzer is light wearing and allows the skin to breathe. It's also smooth in texture and contains a blend of ochre tones and micro-dispensed light pigments to perfectly mimic the effects of a sun kissed look, giving the skin an instant glow.

The colour pigmentation is gorgeous and it's lasting power is extremely good. It stays on all day and adds a lovely, naturally sunkissed glow, due to the small flecks of glitter in the powder. Although it does lean to a warmer undertone, so use a light hand to give you a bronze glow rather than oompa lumpa!.. A great bronzer to add a summer glow to these miserable dark winter days! You can pick it up for £12.99 but it's usually included in 3 for 2 offers in certain stores.

This versatile eye shadow set provides eight must-have neutrals in one portable palette. From nudes to blacks, these crease-resistant, long-wear shimmers and velvety smooth mattes are organised with shimmers on top and mattes on the bottom so that they are easy to use. I picked this little beauty up from Sephora in the mall at Millenia in Orlando whilst on Holiday in June, it is tiny.. About the size of a Credit card, I was really surprised how small it was, but the shadows are great, pigmented and a good size and fill the palette, it is perfect for popping into your handbag or a compact make up bag for a trip away, the shades can take you from day to night no messing! Full of neutrals like the smashbox full size palatte but this contains eight.. Four matte and four shimmer, such a great little travel-size palette of eight, with universal neutral shadows. t was $24 = £15.78 which I don't think is too bad for eight high quality, long wearing shadows?!

This set contains: 
Shimmer Eye shades in Chocolate Brown/Golden Pearl, Soft Gold/Golden Silver Pearl, Light Tan/Golden Silver Pearl, Mid-Tone Slate/Silver Pearl.
Matte Eye shades in Matte Warm Chocolate Brown, Soft Matte Mid-tone Tan, Creamy Matte Beige, Ashy Dark Brown.

The Full Exposure Palette was created because the pros at Smashbox Studios needed it. On set, they’ve seen every skin tone and eye shape imaginable, so they wanted a super universal, straightforward palette that works on anyone, anywhere—from big-deal photo shoots to behind-the-scenes Instagram selfies.

Brianna 3/4 wig in Ginger Brown by Hot Hair

Brianna is a 3/4 wig with long gentle yet glamorous waves through the ends. This ultra-long style is perfect for a glamour-puss look that will ensure you turn heads - I received my hair piece in a lovely black box with tissue paper - it felt so luxurious! The hair itself, to me looked and felt real.. It's not super shiny like some synthetic pieces, once out the box it took me about 3-5 minutes to figure out how to best attach to my head.. I split hair from ear to ear the hair above I flip forward the hair below I put in a low ponytail.. I attach the hair piece over my low ponytail and secured, I then put my remaining hair back down and styled with a kirby grips to blend the two together and make it look natural, within minutes I have gorgeously long locks!.. The ¾ wigs easily slide in at around 10cm’s behind your hairline to create instant length and volume. You then simply disguise the join with your own hair or a pretty ribbon or hairband to create the easiest, most glamorous way to fabulous hair ever.

This is how it securely attaches to your hair with two tooth combs and two clips, it feels very secure once attched properly.

The hair itself was colour matched to me after sending pictures of myself via email, I was matched to the shade 'Ginger Brown' and I was very impressed when it turned out to be a perfect match.
Made of a high quality synthetic fibre made to look and feel like real hair this wig comes with a slightly waved style and as it is synthetic,but you are unable to use any heat styling on it. I personally think it felt just like real hair and clipped in, my husband couldn't tell the difference between my hair and the wig, which was great!.. I've worn it on a few nights out & never had any strange 'she's wearing a wig looks!' Just compliments. One of my friends "couldn't believe how long my hair had gotten, as You always have it tied back"...  The 3/4 styles are created with life-like synthetic hair, eliminating the need for styling. They won’t droop or flatten in humid or wet weather, and due to their innovative comb and clip system, won’t budge even during the most energetic dancing on a night out.

I love mine and will definitely be wearing my hair down more often.. With this added beauty!

RRP is £69.99 but it's currently on offer for £49.99!

Urban Decay X Gwen Stefani Palette

Here we have the Latest release from Urban Decay that has everyone talking!.. For me personally It has been a while since I saw an image of a palette and got truly excited!.. I wanted to know everything about this palette as soon as I saw it and most importantly the release date!.. Now I actually have it in my hands.. It has confirmed my initial 'Love at first sight'.. Urban Decay have out done themselves with Gwen's help of course!!.. This palette is STUNNING! The colour payoff of all fifteen shades is absolute perfection... Even the box is beautiful!

Encased in a gorgeous golden/bronzed, edged palette with white and black doted packaging are fifteen beautiful shadows,

The twelve new shades, are all aptly named by Gwen to represent parts of her Life:
Blonde - a pale beige with pink iridescent.
Bathwater -a pale beige with gold pearl.
Steady - a medium rose with metallic gold.
Punk - the reddish-brown matte.

Baby - a cool metallic rose.
Anaheim - a light taupe-brown.
Zone - a medium matte brown.
Serious - a smoky grey with iridescent pearl.

Pop - a pale coral with iridescent sparkle.
Harajuku - a metallic blue-pink with iridescent microshimmer.      
Danger - a deep metallic royal blue with blue microsparkle.
1987 - a bright metallic yellow-gold.

The other three shades — Skimp, Stark, and Blackout — are favourites of Gwen's from the original Urban Decay collection. My immediate favourite shade is Punk, it is a red-brown matte it makes my blue eyes pop and will be such a stunning look for Autumn/winter.. 

But I also love the shade 1987 which is a beautiful gold, that looks amazing on my inner corners - but I keep changing the more I use the palette!.. Typical blogger so fickle..

Every shade in this palette is wearable, even Harajuku which is a lovely cool toned pink that looks great all over the lid for an easy day look, it doesn't make you look like you're trying to create a look from the 80's!...The release date is 22nd November, but if you go to and pop in your email, they will email you with the release date allowing you to be one of the first to buy it!!, It will be priced at £40.00 which means each shadow works out to be about £2.67 each.. An absolute bargain!!.. I am 100% sure it will be a sell out especially as it's Limited Edition!

Urban Decay have even popped a Blister sample pack of four of Gwen's eight lipsticks into the box that accompany this collection.. 

We have Rock Steady - cream finish is a lovely rich red

714 - Mega Matte Finish is a gorgeous bright red

Ex-Girlfriend - Sheer finish is an on trend nude

Firebird - cream finish is a stunning Fuschia pink.

Will you be rushing out to pick it up?
