What I Got for Christmas 2017

I know Christmas is long gone, but I still find it really interesting to see what people were given! Now we’re all adults, Christmas is more about spending time with your family and friends – and food! I mostly get little helpful presents or money now, but I do get some lovely fashion/beauty related gifts. Here are just some of the things I received which I loved!

Clinique Great Skin Home & Away
I have raved about Clinique's 3 Step skincare range again and again on here! I love it! My mum bought me the set many many many years ago for Christmas and I have been using it ever since. The full sized sets normally last me around six to eight months, so I often pick one up (or get given one, yay!) around Christmas time.

MAC Studio Conceal & Correct Palette

What would Christmas be without a bit of makeup! I normally get my essentials at Christmas time, like this great concealer palette from MAC. It has every colour you'd need! It has a variety of light skin tones, plus a very yellow based one which I use to carve out my brows.

MAC Pro Longwear Waterproof Brow Set

MAC brow gel is the only brow gel I'll ever use! It sets so solid, which some people hate but I absolutely LOVE. Once it's on, it won't budge and it's definitely waterproof! The only thing that annoys me about MAC brow products is that no shade is ever right for me. They're either too dark, light, warm, cool. It's a struggle, to be honest.

ASOS FARLEIGH High Waist Slim Mom Jeans

I was in desperate need of jeans, so I was so happy when I unwrapped these in black AND in blue! I adore ASOS jeans. They kick Topshop's ass on everything from price, fit, style. If you haven't tried them, you need to! They take a bit of wearing in, but once you're in, they're perfect.

ASOS Fluffy Sheep Pyjama Set

How cute are these PJs! The sheep on the front is actually really soft and fluffy, I love them! Pyjamas are a must at Christmas, so I was so happy to be given these. They are so comfy too!

Boohoo Red Roll Neck Wide Sleeve Jumper

This jumper is just Christmas all over! I love the roll neck and the wide sleeves - it is so flattering. It goes with everything and is super warm and comfy too which is such a plus. I don't even have to wear a coat!

Yankee Candle Christmas Tealight Wreath Set
Everyone knows I love love love Candles! I am so happy when I receive them for Christmas, because I know I will definitely, definitely use them. I love this Yankee set, it will last me for ages and I don't care if they're Christmas scents - I'll be burning them all year round!

What did you get for Christmas? How did you spend it? I hope you had a good one!

New Year Activewear Wish List

So it's 2018! 

It's a new year and everyone is going full blast on their resolutions. Most of us probably won't keep them past February but hey, it's the thought that counts right? 

I'm probably quite similar to most people who vow to be super healthy and super active in the new year... To give myself some much-needed motivation I've been browsing loads of new gym gear. I've spent way too much time on it, so I thought I'd put together some of my top picks from my favourite places...


This blush colour was so in during 2017, and I'm still loving it. For a high street store, Missguided actually has some really nice bits that actually look like they're practical too. I love the pink leggings (£15) because they're seamless which means they'll be super comfy - although they almost definitely will be see-through! The other pair (£15) are really high waisted which I absolutely love in gym leggings. The panelling at the sides is also really flattering. The crop top is £12 and the mesh t-shirt is £15, which I think is really reasonable for gym wear.


Most people wouldn't even think of looking in M&S for gym clothes, but they actually have really really nice stuff! It is definitely a lot pricier than other high-street shops, but the quality is so good. I'm obsessed with this floral sports bra (£25), it is so cute! I really love the running top too, although it's a bit pricey at £29.50. The vest is £15 and the leggings are £25, which may seem a lot compared to Missguided, but I really do think it's worth the money.


I'm really loving this monochrome, space dye vibe that Boohoo have got loads of their activewear in. This two pack of vests is such a bargain in my opinion - they're only £12! The leggings (£15) both look really flattering as they're high waisted, and wearing patterns is always great if you're a bit self-conscious. The sports bra is only £10, which is crazy cheap compared to some of the bigger brands.


New Look is definitely one of my favourite places to buy gym wear. They always have such cute patterns - like this palm print! I love the meshing on the sports bra (£14.99) and the leggings (£19.99), I think it's so cool. I also adore this hoodie (£19.99) for going to and from the gym, especially with the slogan down the arm. The racer back vest is also only £12.99 which is a great price.

Where is your favourite place to buy gym wear? Do you normally opt for quality clothing or fashion?
