Tanya Burr Neutral ambience collection πŸπŸŒ΄

I was super excited to see that Tanya Burr had brought out some new additions to her beauty range, and what better way to spend my birthday money aye!?

I grabbed three of her four new products and I thought I would share them with you, let you know what they are like and such! So let’s get into it. 

These are the two eyeshadow palettes. Let’s talk about the packaging!! It’s so pretty 😍 It’s a matte finish with shiny palm leaves and pineapples printed onto it. The ‘my escape’ palette is a lovely tropical green colour and the ‘my paradise’ is in a lovely copper colour  

My escape 🌴

The four shades in this palette are: (from top left) New perspective,wild jungle, tree tops and master plan.

I love the dusky pink colour and the khaki colour is beautiful and has a lovely shimmer to it. I don’t have any colours like the khaki and it looks so pretty on. I love those two for an everyday look and then the bottom darker shades to add a smoky, night out feel to your eye look.

My paradise 🍍

The four shades in this palette are: (from top left) champagne cocktail, tranquillity, Miami sunrise and hammock (love that name!)
I love the coppery tones of this palette, this is a perfect addition to my eyeshadow collection (which mainly includes pinks) They are so pretty and again a lovely mix of matte and shimmery tones.

So pretty!

I also picked up one of the two new lipstick shades…

Sunday walk πŸ’„

This beautiful pinky toned lipstick is called ‘Sunday walk’ I love it soo much. Pink is my favourite shade and this is a lovely matte lip that looks really pretty on and can be quite subtle too, which I like! Great for everyday or a polished evening look, perfect with a smoky eye.

Having these products has made me want to start using eyeshadow more and trying out some different looks, being a bit more daring.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this little look at Tanya’s new products! Let me know if you’ve tried any out and your thoughts 😊

Until next time,

Blogmas day 23: Festive bakingΒ 

This is so wierd, I planned to do my festive baking today at the beginning of the week and I got a notification today on Facebook telling me that day 22 of last year’s Blogmas was festive baking too, how wierd. So looks like Dec 22nd is Blogmas baking day! Although this year I have had to post it on the 23rd as I already had a post ready for today, anyway…

I did plan to do these in more than one post but the time has completely got away from me (seriously where has Blogmas gone?!?) and so I’m doing it all in one mega baking blog post. 

So, what’s on the menu?

  • Mini heart mince pies
  • Chocolate orange cupcakes 
  • Gingerbread men 

    First up, Mince pies! I made these using a Slimming World recipe, you can check that out here

    My little helper!

    I went for a heart on top (less festive than a star I know) as I couldn’t find my small star cutter. These still look lovely and the hearts are quite cute.

    These went down a treat in class, since these were ready and Slimming World friendly I thought I’d take them to my class that day as we were having our Christmas party. They didn’t last long at all.

    Next up, chocolate orange cupcakes!

    These were made using a Mary Berry recipe, Queen of baking who else could be better!! Check out the recipe here 

    I have to admit that I used pre made icing as I didn’t have time (or enough bowls!!) to make this too, thanks Mrs Crocker for saving me πŸ‘

    I used the chocolate orange minis in the grab bags to pop in the middle (a yummy, gooey surprise) and to decorate on top of the cupcakes as these are a better size than the large segments of a full chocolate orange 🍊🍫 That’s just my preference but it worked really well.

    This cupcake set came from TK Maxx and was only Β£4.99. It comes with cupcake cases of two different designs and four different Christmas cupcake toppers. I love this cute little set! It would also make a lovely gift for any baking fans. 

    And finally, gingerbread men!

    I’ve never made these before (& to be honest my sister did most of the prep for these ones anyway) but these are soooo good and they smelt so Christmassy.

    This recipe is again from Queen Mary Bez and I found it on the BBC Good Food site (best site for cooking & baking, failsafe recipes galore!) gingerbread men recipe

    These smelt amazing and taste so yummy. From this recipe they are a tasty mix of a shortbread biscuit with a yummy taste of ginger to them. If you wanted to have a stronger flavoured biscuit I’d recommend adding more ginger and the cinnamon to add that spice. I didn’t add the cinnamon to mine as I hate the stuff, yuk.

    I really liked how these looked when they were done so I didn’t add any decoration to them but you could pipe on detailing or add sweets for buttons and features if you wanted to.

    Noah was such a good little helper and he loved rolling out the doughs and cutting out the gingerbread men (and tasting them at the end too of course)

    A fun, festive and yummy way to spend an afternoon. I can’t wait to have a cuppa at work with a gingerbread man and I’m going to serve the cupcakes at our Christmas party tommorrow!

    In my beauty advent calender today…

    A gorgeous red lipstick! πŸ’‹ I love how many different lipsticks you get with this advent, it’s perfect for starting a lipstick collection & since I only really had liquid lipsticks before this has been great for me. I’ve found a new love for creme lipsticks throughout December! I’ll definatly be wearing them more often now.

    Here’s a swatch…

    You can’t beat a festive red!

    It’s Christmas eve eve, 2 days to go! 😁

    Ho Ho Ho

    Beauty advent calender πŸ™ˆ

    Yup I forgot to include my beauty advent pieces from the last few days! I’m so rubbish at remembering this haha.

    So, on Saturday 10th December I got this lovely eyeshadow.

    It’s a lovely shimmery creamy colour. This would look lovely all over the lid or with a more dramatic make up look. I wore this on its own today and it looked really nice. 

    On Sunday 11th December I got another lipstick and this one is perfect for autumn/Winter time. It’s a gorgeous plum shade which I love (& recently got a lip Liner of, yay!) 

    The colour of the packaging made me worry a bit to begin with as it looks like bright purple πŸ™ˆ but, when I swatched it I realised it was a lovely plum tone. Thank goodness for that haha.

    These are such a good size for your handbag too & the packaging is lovely with the simple goldey/copper writing.

    I promise I’ll try & be better at including these at the end of my posts from now on!!

    Ho Ho Ho

    Blogmas day 10: Tanya Burr cosmetics πŸ’‹

    How are we 10 days in already?!? 

    I recently bought some of Tanya’s Burrs make up from her latest ranges and I thought I would show you what I got.

    First up, 

    The Midnight smoulder palette from her New autumn collection.

    The colours in this palette are so beautiful.

    From top left to bottom right: Star gazing, endless sky, midnight navy & into the night.

    Also from her Autumn collection I grabbed one of her lipsticks. I have wanted to try these for ages and I have got a couple of the colours on my Christmas list but I really wanted her red shade ready for the Christmas party season. They are lovely creme lipsticks and the colours are amazing.

    This is the red shade, ‘Big kiss’

    Here’s a swatch of the lipstick, it’s a lovely darker red  and is going to look great for my work Christmas meals.

    From her Soft Luxe collection I picked up one of her lip glosses that I have seen her use in a few of her videos and really liked the look of it. 

    This is in the shade ‘Afternoon tea’  it’s a lovely peachy pink colour.

    I also picked up a lip gloss set from her New Christmas collection. I love her Christmas collection this year, it’s got some awesome pieces in it (also on my Christmas list!! Pretty please Santa πŸŽ…)  and the packaging is gorgeous too.

    These lip glosses are so pretty, the pink on the left side is called ‘Berry Pavlova’ and the red one is called ‘Candy Cane’  Love that!

    I love the icy blues, cute light pink lips all over the packaging & glitter detailing to look like a Christmas bow. 

    Here are some swatches…

    These are limited edition so I had to grab them whilst they were still in stock as they won’t be available after Christmas.

    My final item isn’t Tanya Burr but it’s along the same lines as it’s by her friend Zoella…

    This cute make up bag is from Zoellas Tutti Fruitti range which is now being discontinued. I grabbed it for Β£2 since they’ll be gone soon and it’s such a lovely size for in your handbag. 

    Have you tried any of these products? What did you think? What would you recommend?

    (P.s I stayed at my sisters last night as we are off to Winter Wonderland today so I haven’t opened my advent calender, I will include today’s & tommorrows in Day 11 of Blogmas!)

    Ho Ho Ho
