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

*This post features an advertorial with P'URE Papaya Lips Hi, hey, how are ya? It's been a while I know, and I'm sorry. I needed some time to settle into freelance life (which, I'm loving btw), and just some time to get into the new swing of things you know.  So anyway, that can be saved and chucked into a separate blog post (let me know if you fancy that).  Over on Instagram I've been sharing the odd product here and there over the last few months regarding skincare, as my skin went super dry as soon as the seasons and weather changed. My skin was flaking it was that dry, and my lips were red raw and went without lipstick as I couldn't bare to put anything on them at all. Thankfully I ended up creating a nice little routine....more on that in a bit, and found some new must haves for hydrating and softening the skin and lips.  Lets start from the bottom to the top ey? I like being awkward! And, before we get stuck in, these are all products

Cruelty Free Living Products And Where To Find Them

A super sunny good day to you beauties!  Welcome to my first of many cruelty free living posts I've wanted to do for such a long time now, and I've finally planned them and can't wait to hopefully inspire some of you to make a simple change to support the unfair testing and use of animals. The most common thing I hear back from people is "it's going to be expensive" or "that's so much effort", well it's actually not and the only effort you need to put in is to just pick up a different bottle *holds head in hands. It's that simple.  Over the last two years I've been gradually replacing items in my home with cruelty free alternatives to get to the point I'm at today. The majority of you guys like me, go to one store for the bulk of your weekly/monthly shop, however I've grown to enjoy searching for cruelty free products and options so am now a bit of a shop hopper.  When I think of the places I like to hit up th
