First of all I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and you get to spend all the time with friends and family!
I havnt posted much this month as I have been trying to organise mine and pawls first christmas together in a house. Its also our first christmas together as the last 2 years we have spent it with our own family! Its a nightmare trying to fit everyone in especially as we only get his son at 4pm. And everyone wants to see Bear!
This month I have spent most of my time trying to bond with hyde our chinchilla. He was fine when Jekyll was around but since he died hyde withdrew alot and now its almost like he has trust issues with us! He has got better he has grown alot now he doesnt have a brother that picks on him and I was just working hard to make him happy and comfortable again. I think I made headway this week as he enjoyed getting some hugs with minimal fidgeting!
Lots of Love

Its not often that items stick in my head when I want something. I see things want them then forget about them!
There are a few things that have stayed in my head whispering the words 'you need me'
1. Black and Gold Nails.
I really want this nail combination as my festive nails. Especially a matte black! So much so I got myself a new matte top coat so watch this space!
2. My Own Mug!
I started to drink a lot of hot chocolate but as Im not a big hot drink person normally I dont have my own mug. I use the spare ones and most of those are chipped! I would love a little mermaid one or even nightmare before christmas! But either way a trip to the disney store is needed!
3. High Street Vouchers!
Every time I get actual real money it always goes towards bills, food, or saving for bear. Oh the joys of adulthood, responsibility and children! So I love getting vouchers it means I can treat myself to something nice!
4. Sigma Brushes!
I really want to try these I would love a complete set but it is way out of my budget!
5. A House!
This is a dream of mind. At the moment me and Pawl rent our house. As we pretty much live pay day to pay day it is a miracle so saving is a little bit tricky! However I will hopefully will be doing a management training course soon! I already manage my shop once a week but this will give me better training and hopefully a better job and wage! Meaning I may be able to save!
And thats my wishlist that wont leave my head! What things do you keep wishing you had?
Lots of Love

Another new colour for me!
Thursday, 5 December 2013
I had so many plans for today I was going to head to next and get a secret santa present for someone at work i was going to decathalon for work out stuff but instead netflix magically appeared on the tv and then breaking bad made its way on (they are robbing a train as we speak) and i decided to redecorate the christmas tree instead. It doesnt look as empty now! Super man is still in there but there is a star on the top! I figured I would show you my comfy clothes! Theres the denim shirt I got from newlife some primark leggings and a really long vest top from matalan.

1. Argon Oil Travel Set.
While my sister may not get much use out of the shampoo and conditioner as she has thick thick hair the oil is a good size and will probably last her a long time. There is also a pact of face wipes in there. For anyone obsessed with their hair or knows how much a good hair oil can do this is a great little set. It costs only £3.99 and it is from B&M.
Lace Look Bracelet.
I love this it looks so elegant and at £6 it doesnt cost the earth for something that looks so nice. This is from Asda and there is a whole host of jewellery items that would make perfect gifts.
3. Gift Sets.
Every year I get a Brut gift set for my dad, he loves the smell and why not get him something I know he will love and use it! They normally cost around £5 but at the moment asda have two selected gift sets for £8. So I decided to pick up a radox one for my mom aswell which has candles and body washes, I am fairly certain by itself that one was around the £7 mark. If you take the offers while they are good you can get some great bargains. I have linked the 2 for £8 gift sets above.
4. Wembley Football Stadium Tour.
I went on this last year with my partner and his son, it was an amazing day out, even as a football hater I really enjoyed the tour. Any football mad guy or girl would love this and the best bit is that the tour is only £16. I was shocked when I found out the price as I expected it to cost a lot more. The tour lasts for around 75minutes and it is worth the money.
5. Avon Goodies!
I always end up buying things for christmas presents from avon! I am getting my sister a 'C' initial necklace, I picked up two aftershaves and a perfume for around £13 which got me a free gift with another perfume and some hair and body items, while this means alot of people are getting the typical smelly stuff it has only cost me around £18 to get 5 presents. I think Avon are always worth a look especially for the offers in the books.

I took the journey down today and figured I would just show you an over view of what I got, and I will probably do some outfit posts at some point too!
So that is my haul for today! I hoped you liked everything and you may think about having a trip to New Life yourself. There is even a New Home which sells home products which I think I am going to look at on friday with a few people from work!

I discorvered crafty creatives and their aptly named CCbox around 3 months ago! IT works on the same principle as a beauty box and you get a lovely surprise every month!!
Each box comes with its own theme. This months theme is Medieval.
Every box comes with an art card, which has all information about the artist and on the reverse it has a list of stuff that is inside the box! There is also a kit in every box, the kit is for a beaded bracelet that looks rather complicated but I will post up a picture when I finish it!
I hope you guys like the box and you can purchase them out here.

However I would sill like to share what I was wearing! I actually really liked it. I decided to bust out my studded collar shirt and use it under a top just to add a bit of something else to the otherwise boring outfit.
I would first like to say what the hell happened to the white balance on my camera!! My walls look more creamy coloured then they really are and my door looks off white!! Oh well
Lots of Love

1. You have to be connected to google+ to comment on yotube now, this can be done by linking a google+ page or google+ account.
This great video from Hank Green, explains it better then I ever could.
2. You need to make your comments visible on your google+ for other people to comment back just leave the button that says share on google+ ticked,(or so I have been told on forums) you may also need to follow people in your circles to comment back. Im not 100% sure on this because currently my blog will not allow me to reply to certain people but I can write @ followed by their names to tag them directly in a comment I leave. So I can still reply personally without hitting that reply button!!
3. You can not reply to comments made before the switch over, I have no idea why google could not fix this, maybe they didnt try hard enough, but you just cant do it! Sorry guys!
4. There are two ways to sort you comments, the default 'top comments' and if you click that button there is an option for 'new comments'. 'Top comments' are decided on how tey relate to you in your google+ cirlces, the interaction with the comment and the google+reach of the commenter. The odd thing about this option is that it looks different for everyone! I like the new comments option better, but there is no way to have this as a default option yet.
5. Comments turn into conversations! This is exciting you can directly keep tabs on who is commenting and then what is turning into conversations, if you look at more established youtubers you can see this in action, it looks pretty cool if you ask me!
6. You may or may not recieve emails based on your settings, but you can see all comments on your youtube/blog/google+ comments on google+. It seems really confusing but I have seen it in action on my own blog.
Person 1 commented on one of my blog posts and it was then shared on their google+ feed.
Other people then commented on person 1's comment which also went into my blogger comments section and my google+ feed.
I can interact and follow the conversation using either platform (blogger or google+) The same should work for youtube. In my understanding it allows more outreach for your blogs and youtube.
7. I dont get nearly enough comments to try this out yet, but you can moderate the comments alot better, you can block certain people, block comments by certain words (minimising hate comments) and the whole system meaning you have to connect with google+ stops the majority of haters who want to remain anomynous, because you no longer can, your email/profile is forever linked and shared!
8. You can EDIT comments, actually edit them, when you have a typo and you look like an idiot, you can change it!!
9. If you delete your comment that has started a conversation that whole conversation dissappears :(
10. Play around to see how commenting on youtube videos or blogs is being shared on your google+ personally for me, not enough of my friends or family use or even know about google+ it is filled with my online presence and friends I have made on blogger and youtube so sharing all this is not a problem for me, but you may need to find a way for it to work with you.
I have seen many people saying they hate this new system, they are leaving youtube because of it, blah blah blah but I do have to say face facts, that google implemented it and you can not overthrow google, not even the content makers!! You are just going to have to play about and learn how to use it! I for one am finding the system much better, it looks better on my youtube app on my phone and my Ipad, I also really like the google+ app, it has made using google+ alot easier for me. It is about learning and growing with the changes, I mean how many times do we say we hate the facebook changes, yet we mostly all still use it!! I for one am very happy to see a commenting system that enables me to control who posts, because no one likes those hate comments (especially ones that say jump off a cliff o_O) and being able to moderate it all makes me feel alot better!!
I hope some of this helps you to understand google+ commenting, especially on youtube!

I have always loved the look of black nails but previous purchases have just never looked good. They either dont apply nice or dont have good colour pay off. So you can imagine my excitement at gettingthe black nails inc polish in glamour. I paired it with a gold frm barry m with black and white confetti also from barry m. I really like it!

Today I am reveiwing the Seventeen Phwoarr Paint Concealer. The concealer really intrgued me. Not because of the name I dont know what they were thinking there, I mean Phwoarr Paint! It sounds like a joke name. However the concealer inside looked like it had alot of promise.

I am going to use this post to give a mini update. I look very red eyed and puffy here because my nan died on friday which was a huge blow. She had cancer and didn't have long left but I was hoping for another month or so. To add even more upset to the week one of our chinchillas died. :( I am trying to keep myself busy so you may see an increase in posts or a decrease. who knows what will happen, I just know if I dont do things to keep my mind occupied I end up in a silence that can last months. I dont want something like that to happen to me again.
But onto todays face price.
Foundation - Bourjouis Healthy Mix Serum - £10.99
Concealer - Bourjouis Healthy Mix - £7.99
Blusher - Natural Collection Peah Melba - £1.99
Bronzer - Benefit Hoola - £23.50

Soap and Glory Brown Eyeliner - £5.00
