River Island Christmas Party Dress

For this year's festive celebrations I wore a red dress from River Island. The dress was in a skater style with lace and a low back. Although it was a short dress, the low back and high neck made it elegant and paired with some black heels, it was the perfect dress for a Christmas party.

I accessorised my outfit with some gold earrings from Jon Richard and a Hugo Boss rose gold watch.

What was your favourite outfit for the Christmas celebrations?

The last minute Christmas Gift guide with Liz Earle

There's less than a week to go until Christmas so if you're still looking for the perfect beauty gift then look no further than Liz Earle! As part of their Radiant Wishes Christmas Collection, Liz Earle have released some beautifully boxed gifts perfect for anyone who loves beauty products this Christmas.

The Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser comes in a lovely Christmas Edition gift box. The festively decorated tin in the Liz Earle blue and white branding contains the award winning hot cloth cleanser in a generous 150ml, as well as a muslin cloth. This gift is perfect for anyone who hasn't tried the Liz Earle products, as they can start introducing the cleanser into their routine and they are even given the muslin cloth in their gift box. The gift boxes are also easy to wrap and look great if wrapped in the shape of a Christmas cracker!

The Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser Pink Pepper and Mint is another limited edition product, which again comes in the beautiful gift box. Inside the gift box comes a muslin cloth and the 150ml Pink Pepper and Mint hot cloth cleanser. This is again a great gift idea and a bit extra special as it's a limited edition.

The Cleanser & Polish is the UK's most awarded cleanser and is suitable for all skin types. It's a way to treat yourself after a long day by massaging the cleanser into your skin and then polishing off the cream with a hot cloth. These cleansers are also great as a make up remover.

Liz Earle Naturally Active Skincare is a British beauty brand founded in 1995. Products are created that work on every skin type by using the powers of the best quality naturally active ingredients.

Christmas Gift Guide #3

Victoria's Secret Bombshells In Bloom Eau de Parfum 100ml - £48.95

I know you shouldn't solely buy products based on their packaging but I must say that I love the packaging of the Bombshells in Bloom perfume by Victoria's Secret! The bright pink box is sure to grab attention and the perfume bottle itself is so pretty. A pink flower decorates the lid of the perfume bottle which makes it a great accessory for any girl's dressing table. I think this fragrance is fresh and flirty, with notes of Pink Freesia, Red Apple and Water Lily. A great Christmas gift for anyone that loves perfume!

The label.m dry shampoo review

I have discovered a new must have haircare item - the label.m dry shampoo (or as I like to call it, 'magic shampoo'). I was given this product to try at a local blogger meet up in my goodie bag from Danique hairdressing. Having tried various other brands of dry shampoo including Batiste, Pantene and Aussie, I was open to trying a new dry shampoo as I haven't found my go-to product just yet.

I first used the label.m dry shampoo last week on the third day after washing my hair and it worked like magic! After spraying on my hair, it felt instantly fresher and even looked less greasy! I couldn't believe how instantly it worked and it also smells great. Some dry shampoos smell like hairspray however the label.m one smells like lovely shampoo.

I'm trying to wash my hair twice a week or every three days so it's taking time for me to train my hair to get used to it. However dry shampoo in between washes does help. I would definitely recommend the label.m dry shampoo to anyone who is looking to try a different one to the products you can get from your local drugstore.

label.m dry shampoo and other products are available at selected hair salons. I got mine from Danique Hairdressing so thank you to the lovely staff at Danique for introducing me to it.
