Wedding photos πŸ’—

I thought I would share some wedding photos with you! If you’ve followed my blog for a while you will know that I started it to document the planning of our wedding last June!

We saved showing the photos as we wanted to give some out as Christmas presents, so now that Christmas is over I thought it would be nice to put them in a blog post.

I’m not putting them in any particular order either, it’s just a selection of them. 

Me & my bridesmaids. (From left) My best friend Roxy, me, my big sister Charlotte & my twin sister Sarah. 

You can tell by my face that I was trying desperately not to cry but failing miserably.

Me and one of my favourite little guys β™‘ I can’t believe how small he looks here, he looked so handsome in his little suit matching all the groomsmen. 

This is one of my favourite photos.

Nice pose…

…silly pose.

Our first dance as husband and wife to the song ‘Stand by me by Ben E King’

My gorgeous groom.

This photo pretty much sums me up! I loved doing the girly bride bit with my hair, make up and beautiful dress but I’ll always be much comfier in my converse.

Listening to our readings being done by family & Friends.

Best.Day.Ever  11/06/16

Until next time,

My favourite snacks!Β 

As you’ll know if you’ve read day blog before I do Slimming World so I thought I would share with you some of my favourite low syn snacks.

I know the ‘syns’ of things won’t apply to someone who isn’t following Slimming World but these are handy to know if you are and also if you want a snack that will keep you on track when you are trying to be good, and I know lots of people look to start the new year well.

Its all about balance at the end of the day, I know if I try and stop myself eating something I’ll only want it more.

Let’s go…

These are a low syn alternative to a full sized digestive with the same great taste. These are only 1.5 syns each instead of 4 for a normal choc digestive. I grabbed these in milk chocolate and dark chocolate form.

You can also buy individual packs of digestives in the milk and dark chocolate variety that only have two digestives in them. These are good if you want a full sized biscuit without the temptation of a full pack.

Aldi do loads of great low syn crisps but this week I’ve been loving quavers. These multi pack bags are only 4.5 syns which is fab compared to the standard bags of Walkers crisps. These multi pack bags of sweet & salty popcorn are only 2.5 syns, amazing! I’ve really got into sweet & salty popcorn at the mo so these are great to grab for a yummy snack or to take to the cinema.

These rice cake bars are also from Aldi and are only 4.5 syns. These are a great sweet treat as they are covered in orange flavoured dark chocolate, So yummy! They also come in plain chocolate too.

Something else to satisfy a chocolate craving is a good old Freddo bar. A nice little bar of Cadbury Chocolate you can quickly grab. I have to be honest, they aren’t as big as I remember but I was smaller then too! Ooh almost forgot to mention, these are 5 syns each.

These granola bites are so yummy to have with a cup of coffee and taste so sweet and oaty. Each ‘bite’ is 1 syn. These are again from Aldi.

The last few snacks I thought I’d include are the Pink N Whites marshmallow/wafer sandwiches.  These are only 2 syns each.

Kallo choco-coconut rice cakes are only 3.5 syns per pack and you get 4 mini chocolate and coconut covered rice cakes in each pack. Yes these are aimed at kids but I dont care! Why should kids get all the good treats aye!! These are also great to just grab quickly or for your packed lunch.

As you can tell I have a definite sweet tooth but these are just so good to keep you on track if your trying to be good and are super yummy too.

I hope you’ve found this handy πŸ‘

Until next time,

Winter wishlist πŸ›

Here’s a few clothing items that I am loving this winter! I would love to add some of these pieces to my (let’s face it, already ridiculously full) wardrobe.

You’ll notice a definite cosy/casual theme but it is winter and I’m a casual sorta gal❄ basic tees to layer up, jumpers, hoodies and long dresses to wear with tights (+ a few accessories because who doesn’t love those) 

H & M

My new make up storage.

I really wanted to get my make up sorted but I was so busy throughout December (and over Christmas especially) so I didn’t get a chance. In the end I thought why not leave it until the new year and start a fresh then!

So here we are in the new year and I’m ready to show you what I collected to store my make up and how I’ve done it.

Some of this storage is what I got new for this sort out and some of this I already had.

I’m really pleased with the finished result although it was scary to see how much I’ve collected over a 5 month period!! I only really got into make up after having my make up trials for my wedding and when I started watching YouTubers around July/August time last year.

So let’s get into it and start with the storage! I went to a couple of different shops and picked up a few things, mainly from Primark, Tiger and B & M.

From Primark I got…

A lipstick holder for Β£1.50. I probably have more lip products than any other type of make up so I just use this to put some of fav lipsticks in. This one currently holds my Tanya Burr lipsticks.

I also picked up another lipstick organiser, that’s what you can see at the top of the picture, and a Β little set of draws. These were Β£4 each.

I also got a make up brush holder for Β£4 (I think it was Β£4, I did get it a little while ago now!)

The brush holder is a simple black, faux leather brush case. You can close it up by putting the top on and and clipping it shut either side or like me, leave it open so you can see your brushes.

From B & M I bought…

A make up storage & organiser, this was between Β£2-Β£4.

I also got this set of plastic draws, these were also between Β£2-Β£4.

Β Β Β Β Β Β Β Β Β  Tiger I chose these cute, patterned cardboard boxes.

wp-image-2078673307jpg.jpgwp-image-243137692jpg.jpg

They come in three different sizes and patterns and fit inside one another. They were only Β£1 each too, bargin!

Some other things that I used for make up storage are a set of three of Zoella’s make up bags from her Christmas collection. These were reduced to Β£4.99 so I grabbed them straightaway.

I also used the box that my Tanya Burr ‘Tanya presents’ set came in. This is from her Christmas collection too…

That’s it for storage so let’s get into how I used these items Β to spruce up my collection and keep it neat and tidy.

As I said I used the little lipstick holder to house my Tanya Burr lipsticks and some of her Limited edition mini lip glosses from her Christmas collection. They are so pretty with the gold packaging.

In the bottom draw of my plastic draws set I put all my eyeshadow palettes.

I actually had more than I realised!!!
In the next draw up I put my blushers and bronzers, (palettes and single ones).

And in the final top draw I put a few random face bits including my colour correcting palette, a loose powder and some contouring and face palettes.

I knew I had a lot of lip products but I didn’t realise the extent of my obsession when it comes to this make up item πŸ™ˆπŸ’„

As well as the holder I mentioned I also managed to fill this (See below) with lip glosses and my favourite Bourjois matte liquid lipsticks as well as the Tanya Burr box!

In the little draws I filled one with eyeliner/mascara products and the other with my foundations/BB creams.

I used the long section of the organiser to house my highlighters and strobing palettes as well as the lipstick organiser.

In the three sections I put my liquid highlighters & eyeshadow primers, my lashes and my compact mirrors & nail files.

& finally the boxes!

In the large one I put my Β new Tanya Burr palettes from her Christmas collection, ‘Pretty unstoppable’ and ‘beautifully defined’.

In the medium sized one I put my eyebrow products…

In the small one I put some random face products like my primers and illuminator.

I popped my little stand up mirror in the middle too.

I bought some Fairy lights from Primark for Β£3 to go around the edge of my make up area.

And here’s how it looks all finished…

I hope you’ve enjoyed this blog post! Let me know what you think πŸ‘

Until next time,

New year Make up Wishlist!

A new year, a new wishlist and where better to start than with Make up!

These are a mixture of both drug store and High end. I have included a mixture of highlighter, blush, lip, face and eye shadow products as well as some make up brushes that I would like to add to my collection.

I already have some products by some of these brands but others I have seen online, been recommended or I’ve seen on YouTube videos and have liked the look of them.

Lets go…

sleekmakeup-storm-i-devine-6

Sleek  Make up I-Divine ‘Storm’ eye shadow palette. I love the colours in this palette, especially the shimmery tones, the pink and burgundy shimmers at the top and the navy blue, grey and emerald shimmers at the bottom are my particular favorites

sleek_vintageromancepalette002

Sleek I Divine ‘Vintage Romance’ eye shadow palette. Most of these shades are again shimmery, which I definitely prefer. The gold and bronzy tones at the top and the pinky purples are gorgeous.

kylie_main

Kylie Jenner ‘Burgundy eye shadow Palette’. What to say about this? Its just beautiful. The colours in this are so pretty. I love the mixture of matte and shimmer tones, perfect for day or night looks.

The HUDA Beauty ‘Rose gold’ palette is just gorgeous! The mix of shades, mattes and shimmers makes this palette so pretty and perfect for creating lots of different make up looks. The gold, pinky tones and browns are so lovely. 

8891497021470

Maybelline New York single eye shadow in the shade ‘Copper fizz’. I love copper/browny/gold tones and this one is so pretty.

2282877

Maybelline ‘Lash Sensational’ Full fan effect mascara. I’m a bit of a mascara novice so I don’t really know much about which ones are good or not. Zoella recommends this mascara often on her videos and my sister also wears this and highly recommends it too.

s1822204-main-hero

Kat Von D ‘Lock it’ Translucent setting powder. I don’t use a setting powder at the moment but I would like to try one as everyone always says how great they finish your make up and make it last all day long. I’ve only heard good things about Kat Von D’s products so I’d love to try one out. They are also really reasonably priced! When I heard her make up was becoming available online at Debenhams I thought it would be really expensive but it isn’t too bad.

2017-01-15-17-43-52-1205241129

BECCA x ‘Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection’ face palette. This palette is so pretty!! It has five shades of highlight and blush to give you the perfect glow. You get a highlighter in the iconic shade ‘Champagne pop’ as well as two other highlighter shades, two mineral blush shades and a luminous blush hue in the shade ‘Rose Spritz’. Highlighter and blush and two of my favorite make up products so this product is perfect for me.

fdaeedbb9ef54b98e2dc80707a2170e6

Mac Lipstick in the shade ‘Velvet Teddy’. This is a lovely nude lipstick, I’m more of a pink toned lipstick kinda girl but my sister loves this shade so I gave it a go recently and it grew on me.  Its a matte lipstick but it is really moisturizing as you apply it and not drying on your lips. This nude would be a great addition to my lipstick collection.

posie-k_lipkit

Kylie Jenner Lipkit in the shade ‘Posie-K’. As I said I love pink toned lip products and I would love to try one of her lip kits as I have only heard  good things about them. In her kits you get a matte liquid lipstick and a matching lip liner. I’ve recently discovered lip liner and it makes lip application so much easier and neater and I just adore this colour.

sleek-power-plump-lip-crayons-2

Sleek Make up ‘Power Plump lip crayons’. I really like Sleek products and they are super affordable. I love that these come in a wide variety of shades, a nude, a pink, a dark pink, a coral, a berry, and a red. They aim to make your lips shine and look fuller. I cant wait to try these out, but which one to choose haha!!

On to brushes…

2-buffing-brush-1

The Real techniques ‘Buffing brush’. After watching some of Sam & Nic’s tutorials over on their channel ‘Pixiwoo’ I really want to purchase one of their buffing brushes. They use this to apply foundation and “Buff” it into the skin to get a flawless look. I usually use a beauty blender but it would be good to have this brush too to get the best finish.

real-techniques-retractable-bronzer-brush-kabuki-brush-3

The Real Techniques ‘bronzer brush’. I love this large brush and would like to use this to apply my powder (when I get one!) So these will be a joint purchase. I love the size of this brush too.

and finally…

realtechniques_boldmetals001

The Real Techniques ‘Bold Metals’ collection. These brushes are BEAUTIFUL!  The silver, gold and copper/rose gold colours are so pretty. I love these and I already really like the Real Techniques brushes, the quality is super, so these would make a lovely addition to my make up brush collection.

I hope you enjoyed this post! I’ll let you know when I get my hands on some of these, and of they love up to my expectations! Maybe I will do a blog post when I have acquired a few of these items πŸ‘

Whats on your wishlist?

Until next time,

My first Birchbox!

I decided to make January a bit brighter by treating myself to a subscription to Birchbox and I thought I would share with you what I got in my first box and what I think of it.

If you don’t know, Birchbox is a beauty subscription box that you pay for monthly and recieve in the post. You fill out questions on your online profile about your make up/beauty/body/hair product preferences and your box is tailored to you! The subscriptions costs Β£12.95 including postage.

Here’s my first box!

Let’s take a look inside..

wp-image-1309253874jpg.jpg

20170113_201425

In every box you get 5 items, and January’s was even better as you got 2 full sized products included and I had a code to receive a free full sized Ciate Eyeliner, awesome.

Lets take a moment to talk about the packaging, how lovely are the boxes!? They are proper sturdy cardboard boxes that come with a super handy pull our draw that holds your products. It looks great and would be awesome for make up storage too.

This months box was white with a cute ‘yellow lines and dots’ pattern on it, it also had Birchbox printed onto the front in gold and white font. The pullout draw was solid yellow, a lovely colour choice to cheer you up in dreary January. I love the little booklet that you get inside the box that says ‘Sprinkle happiness’

Lets take a look at the bath and body products that came in my box…

20170113_201506

At the top of the picture in the white tube is Vasanti’s Brighten Up! Enzymatic face rejuvenator, exfoliating cleanser. This is enriched with Papaya, Micro-crystals and Aloe. ‘Dramatically improve your skins texture to reveal softer, brighter and younger looking skin! This powerful exfoliator mimics professional microdermabrasion results using 99% natural ingredients.’

This cleanser makes your face feel so fresh and clean, I am loving this so far.

The white and blue tube to the right of the picture is Merci Handy New Wave Love & Hand cream. ‘Your are Hand’some. We know your hands like the back of our own. We’ve been taking care of them for a while now, but what if we could make them softer that you ever imagined? Introducing the creme de la creme…’

This hand cream smells A-MAZ-ING! I love the smell of this so much, I can literally smell it as I’m typing this, its so good. The cream leaves your hands feeling lovely and soft without the slimy/oily feel that some hand creams do.

In the light blue tube is Kebelo’s Clarifying shampoo. This shampoo claims to deeply cleanse and rejuvenate hair. ‘THE ULTIMATE DETOX, As you exfoliate your skin, you should exfoliate your hair. The Kebelo Clarifying Shampoo deep cleanses and rejuvenates, leaving hair revived. Give your hair the treatment it deserves.’

I used this on my hair yesterday morning and as I wash my hair every other day I was interested to see how my hair was today. It is much softer and fresher looking than it usually is on the day I don’t wash it and I haven’t needed to use any dry shampoo, bonus! (as I’m sure i probably use this too much anyway.)

and finally, in the gold tube is the Nuxe Paris Precious scented shower oil. The product in the tube is actually gold which makes it feel quite luxurious and it feels (and smells) lovely on the skin as you rub it in.

Lets take a look at the make up products that came in my box…

20170113_201456

The make up products that came in my box this month were the Lord and Berry Conceal-It crayon concealer in the shade ‘Beige’. I used this product yesterday and this shade was a really good match for my skin, I was also pleased with the coverage it gave.

As a bonus item, using a discount code, I got a full sized Ciate London Fierce Flicks eyeliner pen in the shade ‘black’. I only have one other eyeliner product so I was pleased to receive this. I really like the nib on this as its like a felt tip pen, I’m hoping that as an eyeliner novice this will make it easier, I better get practising!

I cant wait for next months box!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this post and found this useful, especially if you are thinking about subscribing to Birchbox or gifting a 3 month subscription to a family member or friend, which I think would make a fab pressie!

Until next time,

What’s in my bag? Slimming World edition.

If you follow my blog you’ll know that I follow the Slimming World weightloss plan and attend class. I dont really talk about Slimming World much on my blog but it is an important part of my day to day life so I thought I’d talk a bit more about it in this blog, incase those who read my blog are interested and to help others if they read this and think it could be for them too. 

So, what is Slimming World? (Just a little bit about it incase you havnt heard about it before!)

It’s basically a food optimising plan that allows you to have a bit of everything (in moderation) you can still eat carbs, and meat and of course lots of fruit and veg but it’s cooked in a healthier way. It makes you think about alternatives to higher fat foods that are just as yummy and better ways to cook these foods. 

The Slimming World plan is so easy to follow and so versatile that there isn’t much you can’t eat. It works really well for me and when I stick to it (which isn’t always, I’m only human) then the results are fab! I go to class with my two sisters and brother in law, it’s much nicer going with others! I would never have walked through the doors if my sister hadn’t have gone first.

So, what’s in my bag for Slimming World (SW)?

Firstly lets just take a look at my awesome shopping bag! I usually just grab one of these material bags for SW and pop what I need for the meeting in them as it’s super quick. I love this one, it’s so me! When I’m shopping there are just some things I can never resist.

The first thing I always put in my bag is my SW book …

The black book is your main book with the details of the plan,recipe ideas and syns, this is also where you log your weightloss. Cant go without this! 

I also can’t go without my purse as you have to pay, Β£4.95 until you reach your target weight.

Every week the person who has lost the most weight two weeks consecutively is awarded Slimmer of the week. We all take a free food in to go in the basket and this is what the winner gets. I grabbed a nice big Carrot, an apple and a satsuma! All speed foods which speed up your weightloss. 

It’s also nice to have a lovely hot drink during the meeting so I grabbed my Cath Kidson mug to use β˜•

Such a pretty mug 😍

And finally, low syn snacks.

I don’t eat much if anything after lunch on a weigh in day as my meetings at 7.30 so I eat dinner afterwards. For my snacks to munch on after weigh in I grabbed a pack of sweet & Salty popcorn from Aldi and a pink & white marshmallow, a sweet treat. (I didn’t eat all 4 I took one each for my fam)

And that’s it! 

I’m going right back to basics this week and writing this helped me too! You only get out what you put in so fingers crossed for a big loss on the scales. My aim for 2017 is to become, or get as close as I can to my target weight by the summer. Holidays and the summer holidays in particular are hard so I want to smash it until then πŸ‘Š

I hope you enjoyed this post and found it useful! Wish me luck πŸ‘

Until next time,

My sale bargains! πŸ›

I love shopping so with our Christmas money in hand me and my sister went into town to see what we could pick up in the late December/January sales.

Here’s what I got!

First up I got this lovely fragrance set from Superdrug. 

The set is by Ghost and is their ‘Eclipse’ scent. The set came with a 30ml bottle of the fragrance and a cute rose gold compact mirror. It was only Β£15 and it smells amazing! I havnt had it before but me and my sister just thought it smelt so nice and great for popping in your bag!

Also from Superdrug I managed to grab a few bargains from Zoella’s Christmas range! 

I bought the ‘Best chums’ coin purses for me and my sister. These were only Β£2.99 in the sale. These are so cute.

I also bought her set of three make up bags, these are so pretty so I was so happy to see these in the sale. 

The large bag is clear with a coral strip across the top and Zoella written across the front in the same colour writing. The medium bag is a gorgeous pinky rose gold glitter, it’s beautiful and has Zoella written in white on the front. And finally, the small bag is a material one that says ‘Throw kindness round like confetti’ in rose gold font, I love that quote it’s so lovely.

These were Β£4.99 for all three. They are great to use as make up storage, to pop in your bag or for travelling.

And finally from Zoella’s range I got one of the Christmassy gift sets.

I love the design and packaging of Zoella’s Christmas range with the brown paper look background and printed on ribbon in the corners like it’s been gift wrapped.

This set is the ginger and vanilla fragrance set, pamper yourself with my brand new limited edition fragrance. It comes with a large bottle of the fragrance and a large bottle of her ginger cream body lotion. The design with the little gingerbread men is adorable.

I wasn’t sure about this scent to begin with but it’s definatly growing on me and is quite nice and sweet.

If you’ve seen my blog before you’ll know I love Lush and I missed the Boxing day sale (Gutted!) But when me and my sister went in they still had the ‘Butterbear’ bath bomb on offer. It was half price and only cost 98p!! 

I picked up two for me and two for my sister. I talked about this bath bomb in my Festive Lush Haul, it so lovely for your skin, it makes it super soft because it’s made of  cocoa butter, lovely.

From Boots I got an electric toothbrush. Sounds boring, I know! But highly useful and it was a bargin at Β£20, half the original price. 

Tim got one for Christmas so I thought I might as well get one too. It takes a bit of getting used to but your mouth does feel super clean πŸ‘

And finally, from Waterstones me and my sister picked up Sam and Nic Chapman’s new book ‘Face’. 

It’s a lovely book about all things to do with your face from skincare, make up with different tips and tricks. If you don’t know them Sam and Nic are the ladies behind the ‘Real technique’ make up brushes. I love watching their make up tutorials on their YouTube channel ‘Pixiwoo’ so I can’t wait to look through it properly.

So those are my bargains! I was super happy with them 😊

What did you managed to pick up in the sales? 

Until next time,

What I got for Christmas!

I love reading and watching what people got for Christmas do I thought I would make my first blog post of 2017 just that.I’m not trying to brag about what I got, I just wanted to share the things that I kindly received. Also, I havnt included everything, just a selection and what I got in my stocking (because its one of the best bits of Christmas, you know I’m right!!)

So let’s go! 

I’ll start with my stocking as these are the first things I opened…

In my stocking I got some super cute pressies, I got some cosy reindeer slippers, cute polar bear earmuffs, a hand cream that is Vanilla frosting scented (so good!) A sausage dog ruler (that will be going to work with me!) A retro puzzle, chocolate (including my favourite, chocolate orange (yup it’s already gone.) And some yummy tea. A lovely selection, Santa did good πŸ‘Œ 

I was very lucky and got some lovely beauty products this year! I had asked for a few but didn’t know which I was going to end up with so it was still a nice surprise.

From Lush I got the ‘Ballistic’ bath bomb. This smells amazing and is double sided, the yellow side is the powdery texture of a bath bomb and the pink side is waxy. I can’t wait to try it out.

I also got three items from Zoella’s original beauty collection, The hand sanitizer, the ‘Creamy madly dreamy’ body lotion and the ‘Pretty polished’ body scrub. The scent of her original collection is my favourite so I was really excited when she added new items to the range.

From Soap and Glory I got the ‘Deep cleansing milk’ This melts away makeup and is a gorgeous cleanser that smells amazing. I’m using this as part of my skincare routine to remove my make up and it’s lovely.

I was also very lucky to get a few items from Tanya Burr’s Christmas collection.

The beauty holdall is so pretty and perfect for carrying toiletries or make up when travelling or as make up storage. It’s gold with little light pink lips all over it. I also got the ‘Tanya presents’ beauty box which is a lovely light blue box with little black stars and a gold trim. Inside the box you get two nail files with the star pattern, in light green and light pink as well as a ‘Smokey eye’ trio of eyeshadows that are called ‘Luna’, ‘Winter walk’ and ‘Dusk’. You also get her ‘Bambi eyes’ false lashes, a liquid highlighter, a miniature lip gloss in the colour ‘Afternoon tea’ and a mini compact mirror that’s light blue with cute little white dots. Such good value for money (especially as I found it in the sales just before Christmas for Tim) Such a lovely selection of products to try out.

This is one of the gorgeous palettes that she released this Christmas and I love it. This is a fab all round palette with everything you need to create a gorgeous make up look. Included in the palette is a blusher called ‘First kiss’ a highlighter called ‘Champagne shimmer’ four eyeshadows ‘Vanilla sugar’, ‘Toasted teacake’, ‘Hot chocolate and cream’ and ‘Cocoa dust’. The mini matte lipstick is in the shade ‘Martha moo’. I love this palette so much and I was so pleased that Martha moo was the lip shade as this is so hard to come by now. 

I love this present, it’s Sensationails gel starter kit. It comes with two gorgeous gel nail colours, all the equipment you need including a UV lamp, and a nail varnish to gel transformer so that you can  make your nail varnish into gel varnish. This is much cheaper than having gels done at a salon, more convenient and the fact that I can use my existing varnish and turn it into gel is so awesome, all my lovely colours in my collection won’t be wasted.

Some other lovely presents I got are…

These two books are amazing! As you’ll know, if you’ve seen my blog before, I love Harry Potter so I was super excited to see that they had brought out the second book in illustrated form, the pictures are beautiful. This Fantastic beasts book has loads of information on the making of the film, amazing photographs and little extra artefacts to do with the characters (see below)

I love how the book looks like Newts case and opens up on the side like his case!

I also got a VR headset from Tim. My sister got one for her husband in November and I had a go on it, it was really fun. I didn’t realise Tim had remembered me saying how much I enjoyed it but he obviously did! 

This was a lovely surprise and so much fun. I’ve downloaded lots of different apps to use, I love the horror ones even though it’s so realistic!! 😱

Me and Tim got these super cute pillowcases from his Auntie! They are ‘Mr and Mrs’ pillowcases, the ‘Mr’ one has a moustache under the word and the ‘Mrs’ one has some red lips under the word. These are so cute and a lovely present to receive for our first christmas as a married couple.

I love Cath Kidson and I really enjoy the adult colouring books so this is a perfect present for me. The patterns in this are all lovely Cath Kidson patterns. It shows you what they should look like if you want to follow the actual design or you can colour it how you like.

I got a gorgeous photograph of my newest nephew Casey. This one can join the one of Noah that is already on the wall. How cute is the fox costume?! 😍

And finally, I got this gorgeous necklace and earring set from Tim. 
It’s really special as it matches my engagement ring and is my favourite colour (it also happens to be my birthstone!) β™‘

So pretty!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this snippet into what I got for Christmas and I hope that you got some lovely things too. 

Let’s make it a good one!

Until next time, 
Roseanne πŸ™‚
