Happy Christmas & Highlights of 2017


Image source: Pinterest


Just a quick post from me today to wish you all a very Happy Christmas! I am taking a break for the holidays to spend quality time with my husband and both our families. We will be with my husband's family for a week and then back home to celebrate with my family. My husband is finishing work today until January 8th so I am looking forward to lots of quality time with him!

As it's my last post of the year, I wanted to reflect on 2017 and share some of my personal highlights with you and I would love to hear your highlights too!

Last minute Christmas Gift Guide with Debenhams for those who are tricky to buy for!




With only 4 days to Christmas, I know some people may be panicking about the last minute gifts they have to buy! Maybe you've left the ones who are tricky to buy for until the end? Well fear not, because I am one of those tricky people - according to my family anyway, so I am here to help you choose the perfect gift! Everything you see here today can be bought in Debenhams and there are a number of delivery options available so it isn't too late to find the perfect gift and have it wrapped under the tree in time for Christmas! Also, don't forget to use your Beauty Club Card to collect points on your purchases, which you can then use to treat yourself!

Cream shadows for a quick, easy eye featuring Butter London, Natasha Denona & more!




Whilst I'm all for going all out with my makeup over the festive season (see post here), there are some days when I really can't be bothered with blending lots of eyeshadows, but I still want to look put together and like I have made an effort. Cream shadows are perfect for days like these! Today, I want to share five options for lazy days!

Brand Focus #12 Marc Jacobs Beauty


Brand Focus, Marc Jacobs, Velvet Noir Mascara, Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter, Under(Cover) Perfecting Coconut Face Primer, Eye-Conic Longwear Eyeshadow Palette Edgitorial, Le Marc Lip Creme, Enamored Hi-Shine Gloss Lip Lacquer, Gel Eye Crayon, (P)out liner Longwear Lip Pencil, Air Blush, Twinkle Pop Eye Shadow Stick, Magic Marc'er Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner, Review


I'm back with my final Brand Focus of the year! I'm so glad that I started this series this year because it has made me rotate my products on a regular basis but also because the posts seem to have gone down really well with you all too! I'm happy that I have done 12 in 12 months (see series here) and already I'm thinking about the brands I can include next year but today, it's all about Marc Jacobs! I love the sleek black packaging of Marc Jacobs products, but I'm less keen on the animal print packaging of the Christmas collection this year!

Empties & speedy reviews #40 featuring Bondi Sands, Omorovicza, Ouai, L'Occitane, Estée Lauder and more!




This is my last empties post of the year and in fact, the last empties post on the blog because I have decided to retire the series. At the beginning of this year, I stopped posting monthly favourites posts and in 2018, I have decided against empties posts, not because I don't enjoying reading them on other blogs but this is my 40th empties post so it's time for a change (plus I want to end on an even number!). You know the drill here - I'll show you everything I have finished up recently, with a speedy review and tell you whether or not I would repurchase.

Personalised Christmas Gifts from Lanai Blo and Instyler styling tools


Lanai Blo, Instyler Max, Glossie Review


My friends and family tell me that I'm difficult to buy for but, I think that I am easily pleased - having something personalised really thrills me because Siobhán is not the kind of name that you regularly see on products in shops. Even now, when I see baubles or badges with all of the popular names on them, I still check to see if there will be a Siobhán and 99.999999% of the time, there isn't. Therefore, you can imagine how delighted I was to receive a Lanai Blo hairdryer with my name on it! I think this would make a brilliant Christmas gift, not only because it is personalised, but because it is a superb hair dryer!

Festive makeup picks featuring Natasha Denona, Marc Jacobs, Make Up Forever & more!


Huda Beauty Primer, Natasha Denona Foundation X, Cover Fx Illuminating Setting Spray, Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glwo, Charlotte Tilbury First Love, Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir, Make Up For Ever Artist Liquid Matte Liquid Lipstick, MAC, Clinique Beige Pop, Hourglass Ambient Bronzer, Review


I love that at Christmas it's perfectly acceptable to go full on with your makeup whether it's day or night - glitter, highlighter, false lashes and red lips! Today I am sharing the products that I'll be wearing over the next few weeks....

Party Season Skin Prep featuring Skinesis, DHC, Pixi and more!


Estée Lauder, Advanced Night Repair, Skincare, Omorovicza, Midnight Radiance, Pixi Glow Tonic, Glow Recipe Watermelon Sleeping Mask, GLAMGLOW, thirstymud, DHC, Eye Roll On, Sarah Chapman, Intense Hydrating Booster, Review


I've been rotating my makeup to get my festive picks ready but the key to makeup looking good is actually in well prepped skin, in my opinion, so before showing you the makeup I'll be wearing over the festive season, I wanted to show you the skincare products I'll be using. Late nights, rich food, more food that usual and fizzy drinks will all take their toll on my skin so I will be maintaining my current skincare routine but also using extra products to ensure it is plump, hydrated, clear and (hopefully) glowing.

Christmas Beauty Gifting with M&S!




Have you finished your Christmas shopping yet? Or maybe you haven't started? In that case, you're in luck because Marks and Spencer currently have a 50% off Christmas Beauty Gifting Event running online and in their stores. Today I want to show you four fab gifts that are all under £20 and would be a big hit with any beauty fan, unfortunately they aren't included in the gifting event but they are amazing value anyway.

BARGAIN ALERT! 30% off Urban Decay palettes for 24 hours in Debenhams


Urban Decay Ultimate Naked Basics Palette


You all know that I love finding a bargain and you also know that if I find one, I love to share with all of you! From 7am this morning, Debenhams are offering 30% off selected Urban Decay Palettes for 24 hours only. Urban Decay eyeshadows are top notch in terms of pigmentation, longevity and blendability so they would make a fantastic gift for any makeup lover this Christmas!

Christmas gifting with Caudalie




I'm sure you are all familiar with Caudalie, but if you aren't, it is a French brand founded by a husband and wife team in 1993. It is an environmentally conscious brand and their products don't contain any parabens, mineral oils or animal-derived ingredients. I have tried a small number of their products so far and have loved them all so I was delighted to receive a selection of their Christmas gifts and I want to share my thoughts on them with you today! They are all budget friendly at £20 and under, which would make them ideal for Secret Santa or stocking fillers.

Brand Focus #11 Ouai




Ouai is a brand that has exploded on to the beauty scene - everything about it from it's aesthetically pleasing and very instagrammable packaging to the fact that the creator (Jen Atkin) is also hairdresser to the Kardashians, has grabbed the attention of the beauty world. However, aesthetics and big names are not enough to sustain a brand - luckily, the products are pretty amazing so Ouai is here to stay! I haven't tried everything Ouai has to offer, however I think I have used enough to do a brand focus post as I have something to cover every step in a haircare routine.

Cult Favourites 2017: Discovery of the year

More information on that at the end of the post. The focus of today's post is products that I discovered and fell in love with this year!
