Ciate advent calendar


Having watched fellow bloggers feature this advent calendar for what seems year after year, this year I finally treated myself to one. Sometime in November TKMaxx had stacks and stacks of last years Ciate advents at only £19.99! Thats a steal compared to the price of a freshly released one asking £50 of your hard earned cash. I didn't even give myself time to think and just bought it and spread the word so my mum and sister joined the nail polish advent crew too.

Working the same as a traditional advent calendar you open a door every day of advent to reveal a surprise, but Instead of chocolate its nail polish. I was personally so grateful to find this due to recently finding out I'm no longer aloud to eat dairy so to all of my fellow women allergy sufferers.... this is a good option.

Just to clarify I had 2013 calendar which included the following products behind its magical advent doors (In no particular order):

Snow globe, boudoir, Hoopla, Hopscotch, Sugar plum, Fit for a queen, Candy floss, Amazing gracie, Pepperminty, Encorel, Startlet, Chinchilla,Members only, Play date, Ivory queen, Main stage, Pillow fight, Tweed and tails, Caviar metallic pearls silver, Caviar metallic pearls gold, Caviar metallic pearls Midnight in Manhattan, Caviar pearls Cupids arrow, Twinkle toes glitter, Dallas dolly sequins.


If I'm honest I've never bothered with the fiddly stuff like the pears or loose glitter, but having this calendar its allowed me to give them a go when I would normally pass them by in the shops. The only downside I found with this advent was that there were a few shades that were very similar to each other which kind of annoyed me but overall the range of colours is very good.I can honestly say that I don't need to buy any nail polish for a while. 

Were you lucky enough to have the latest Ciate advent calendar? Would love for you to link me to a blog post if you have featured it.

Happy Sunday!
xoxo

  1. What a good idea to get advent calendars from previous years in TXMaxx, thanks for the heads up chick! I bought a No7 calendar this year, I’m really pleased with what products I got overall! How did you find the quality of the nail polishes? I’ve never tried ciate polishes. Fab post! :-) xx

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

AD with Yes To Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day! I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine. Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down. What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the  Yes To Cucumber  range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try!  It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a

A November Book Haul

contains pr products, *aff My obsession with books and reading is still going strong guys! Since my post way back outlining how I was getting back into ready ... I think was back in 2018 and here we are. I've smashed my Goodreads goal of reading 50 books this year, and I'm actually closer to achieving 100 books read. I don't want to put too much pressure on myself but, I'd LOVE to get there. Anyway, books are a huge part of my life now. And even though I like everyone go through slumps where I don't want to read anything, when I am in the reading mood I normally have a few on the go at the same time and have turned into a big mood reader. Which I've found actually helps me get through books so much quicker.  As a member of the Book Break Insiders Influencer group, I am lucky enough to be sent a selection of books every month. Which helps to keep my nose is a book that's for sure! Book 1: The Silence by Don DeLillo* A timely and compelling novel about what ha

Cruelty Free Beauty | Brands and Product Favourites

Good day beauties! So, you guys have been messaging me here, there and everywhere about sharing my top cruelty free beauty products and brands with you.  And because my cruelty free living post did so well, guess what you guys have today?  You've guessed right! And I'm super happy to share with you some top beauty products and brands I reach for, but first I'd like to just share with you why going cruelty free is good.  For me, having a cruelty free lifestyle means not using anything containing animals or their by-products, or using products where animals have been mistreated and used for testing them, and is the way I wish I had chosen to live my life a long time ago. Make up and skincare are products are materialistic in my eyes. We want these things and like them, so I think it's so unfair for innocent animals to be used, killed, kept in awful conditions and tested on against their will just so we could have that new mascara. There's just no need for
