Starting off Christmas with a bang - The Lakeland 'Family Fun Hamper'*

I don't know what it is about Christmas but the moment it starts rolling around we seem to have the urge to put together big boxes of food; hampers are just an absolute winner when it comes to Christmas. Well, I say I don't know why, but I do, big boxes of food are just fantastic - Be it getting ready for your own family celebrations, getting a gift, or maybe a combination of the two; if you get a big box of food you're keeping everyone happy!


The Lakeland 'Family Fun Hamper' is one such example of a Christmas treat that's going to please so so many people. This hamper costs £74.99 which is no small cost but it includes luxury items, novelty items, it includes sweet and savoury, it includes fun for the whole family and some items that you might be tempted to keep for just the grown ups. 

Makeup Revolution - Iconic Dreams* eyeshadow palette - Swatches and first impressions

I had planned for this post to go live about an hour after my 'Golden Sugar' blush palette post but due to a rubbish Dr Appt, followed by a migraine... well it's gone 9 before I can even start thinking about writing - Grr, not how I'd planned my day yesterday!

But, this one didn't want to be held back so the post has had to be written as soon as possible and here it is! 


And here it is! The 'Iconic Dreams'* palette from Makeup Revolution! I've seen a lot of people get excited about this, on social media, and who can blame them! The shades in here are gorgeous and quite different, it definitely stands out from other palettes in my collection.

Makeup Revolution - Golden Sugar* Blush and Contour Palette - Swatches and First impressions

As you may have seen, yesterday, I was sent some rather exciting new Makeup Revolution products - I wanted to share some more in depth posts with you at the time but yesterday was just such a day! I had no chance of getting any posts up so I've just kept you waiting and waiting like the nasty person I am.

I was torn between two products to share with you, first, so I've decided to show you this one, and then I'll show you the other one very very soon (hint, Very soon!) 


I have one of the previous Blush and Contour Palettes, I don't think I've posted about it actually, which is very very naughty. But I'll make up for it by sharing this new offering to the range, the 'Golden Sugar'* palette (it more than makes up for my past wrongs, I promise)

Sneak peak of some Exciting new Makeup Revolution* releases

I had some exciting post today, oh yes, you probably noticed in the title... new Makeup Revolution!

I wanted to get my first post up, today, but it's been a bit of a day and I've not had a chance so I thought I'd share a quick sneak peak pic with you so that you can see what to expect in some upcoming posts!

Some exciting new tea flavours from Pukka* (And some older favourites too)

We love tea, I mean Love. Not a day goes by when we don't drink it, by we I mean myself, my husband, my Mum and her husband. Ethan loves tea, too, but he's on a tea hiatus whilst we try to sort out his toileting issues (no need for diuretics when going to the toilet is already a problem haha!) We have so so many mugs in our cupboard, it's a one in one out rule, if I get a new mug that I love I have to take one of my older ones our and package it away for when we move... We all have our own, specific favourites too. I think you get my point here? We like tea.

None of the others would drink any sort of herbal tea, though, we're a Yorkshire gold tea sort of household - We like it strong and sweet. But I do like a herbal tea from time to time, too. Something a bit different, still warm, but not the same flavour I have every day - Additional to that there are the benefits of many herbal teas, starting with a lack of caffeine, for many of them, and including detox, rejuvenation and many more impressive claims!

For me, Pukka is The brand I think of when I think special teas. I trialled their Earl Grey tea a couple of months ago and it was a delicious example of that more traditional favourite; so when the chance to try some more unusual combinations came up, I jumped at the chance.
