An extremely late November favourites!

Apologies for this going up very, very late! But as they say: better late than never! November has flown by, we are now definitely on the run up to Christmas and I am so excited! I've been loving dark eyes and dark nude lips in November, with a tiny bit of a pinky-toned highlighter dabbed on the cheeks. The reason why I use a pinky highlight is because a shimmery, light highlighter can sometimes look harsh in Winter or over the top - better saved for an occasion! The lipstick colour is very deceiving - when applied, it comes out quite purply, or in some light a beautiful dark nude, with a metallic sheen.

The scrub contains tiny particles, which are very gritty, but creamy, and not too harsh on your face. I've been struggling with blemishes and spots for the past couple of weeks (those painful ones that occur under the skin!) and this wonder scrub has really helped combat them. Gentle, but powerful.

What's in My Handbag?

Hello dearies! Golly, I know I've kept saying for the past month "I'm so sorry for the lack of posts - I will try and get one up soon...!", but I've been upto my eyeballs in coursework and deadlines. College sucks! I know it's the 10th, so I'm not sure wether to put up my November favourites, would you still like to see them?

I thought I would do a little 'What's in My Handbag' post today as recently I've stuck to one bag and it's been vital in going to college/work/days out/shopping trips. I'm not going to lie, I've had to empty out all of the bus tickets, and chewing gum wrapper ends. My bag is from Zara and I got it for £20 in the sale a couple of months ago! I love the colour, it goes with everything. It's just the perfect size - not too big and not too small.

Because I live in gloomy, rainy England, an umbrella is always crucial! And my little wooly hat which I always chuck in my bag in case my hair takes a turn for the worst or if it's just too cold. I also keep my purse and glasses in my bag, along with my Avon Little Black Dress perfume and my John Frieda hairspray. I always chuck in my make-up bag and a comb and little butterfly clip, along with some hair grips because you never know when you may need them! I have my Pukka Pad which I take with me to college and is always in my bag - I filter in other college workbooks when needed. And last but not least, I have my memory stick, beats headphones and my phone. I could include pens, nail files, paracetemol packets, plasters and lady items, but I'm guessing you would expect all ladies to have these items in their bag!

I'm housesitting for my cousin whilst he is in Australia for the next three weeks, so tonight, I'm home alone. I don't have to worry about other family members being asleep so I can turn up Made In Chelsea!!

Have a lovely week

Love, Juliette xo

Getting ready for Christmas!

Hello my lovelies, this post is from my iPad as my Internet on my laptop is deciding to act silly! My November Favourites will be up tomorrow but here is just a quick post on my preparations for Christmas since it is finally the 1st December!

My advent calendar is a simple Cadbury's one - I really wanted a Justin Bieber one, but they had all sold out *cries* :(. I've been burning my Cinnamon Clove candle from Primark for the last couple of weeks now and it smells amazing. I bought some fairy lights today to wrap around my headboard - I got them from Poundland and I'm very impressed with them so far!

Love, Juliette xo
