Too Faced Christmas in New York Eyeshadow Palette 

I LOVE THIS! I could rave on and on about this palette. Firstly, it was limited edition at Sephora at Christmas time, so sorry to anybody who hopes to get their hands on this palette. This palette is filled with an array of beautiful shades, from chocolate browns to dazzling silvers, this palette has it all. The shades are pigmented, soft, and they smell like chocolate which is a sweet touch! The shadows are easy to blend and they last all day. The palette also includes a blush, bronzer, and highlight. I especially adore the blush as it's dark enough to suit my skin tone. 

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick - Lolita II

This liquid lipstick has got to be one of my all time favorites! First off, the formula is wonderful. It really is everlasting, and the pigmentation is amazing. It doesn't feel drying at all, its great. The shade Lolita II is gorgeous, and completely unique from any other shade I have. It's on the verge of an orangey red, but still subtle and cute. I love it!

'It' by Alexa Chung

Alexa Chung is one of my biggest fashion icons, hence when I received her book for Christmas, I was overjoyed. This was quite a light, relaxing read. It's an autobiography, elaborating in depth on Alexa's fashion icons, makeup preferences, and hair goals. It's filled with cute, meaningful pictures and quotes as well as enjoyable childhood stories from Alexa. If you're looking for a light, short, girly read, I'd recommend this book.


I've been dying to learn piano for so long, and one of my Christmas gifts was a keyboard! Playing my keyboard is an escape from hectic daily life. It offers me a chance to mute the world and focus solely on music. I love singing and playing keyboard, and I'm completely self teaching myself through youtube tutorials. It's never too late to try something new! Expect a few covers of songs in the future :)

Blink 182 - Enema of the State

I've loved this album for years, but this month I've been listening to it far more often than usual. The crisp guitar and catchy beats, blended with humorous and occasionally meaningful lyrics create the most perfect punk rock album. My favorite track has to be 'Going Away to College' as I'm fond of the memories it provokes, and it's adorable lyrics are irresistible.

Tommy Hilifiger's 'Tommy Girl' Perfume

I've never really been a perfume kind of girl, but I've been loving this scent since Summer 2k16, and I finally got it for Christmas this year! It smells so youthful and fresh... sorry, I'm not very good at describing scents, haha! This perfume is lovely, definitley one of my faves this month.

Too Faced Born this Way Concealer

Too Faced never fails to impress me! Their Born this Way concealer is amazing. It has great coverage, it blends easily, I love the consistency of it and it doesn't feel heavy on the face. It doesn't crease, and it's got a natural finish. Much love for this concealer :)
