I've seen The Christmas Tag floating around other blogs and YouTube and thought why not?

CHRISTMAS IS COMING! I'm getting really excited as it is my favourite time of the year. 

One thing that is really important at this time of year is to keep organised. Not only does Christmas bring an increase in working hours or studying time but it's just going to be completely hectic. A few years ago I started to write everything down in a notepad and I call it The Christmas Book. Read on if this is something you'd be interested in.

What You'll Need

  • A Notepad
  • Sticker Paper
  • Dividers (or a notebook that comes with them)
  • An Envelope
  • A Printable Calendar
I took a trip to staples to get some bits & pieces and ended up with this notepad. The reason I chose this one was because it came with four dividers that have pockets on the front. Great for storing receipts. If you have picked a notebook that doesn't have this then the alternative is to stick an envelope to the back page to keep them all together.
I use the four dividers as categories, I a card list, gift list, activity list and misc section.

How I Use It

Starting with the Misc section, I print calendars onto sticker paper to put on the last pages to keep track of working hours and any plans. I found these ones online, if you're using an A5 notepad then remember to resize them.

The other sections are pretty much self explanatory.

  • The Card List section I write two columns of names, ones for mailing and ones that don't need to be. Then in those lists what type of card that person needs so a relation or for children in the family I buy character cards. When giving cards I like to put candy canes in them, so this helps me know how many I need.
  • The Gift List section is pretty much the same but I cut and stick in gifts from catalogs with all the information and it helps me keep track. 
  • The Christmas Activity section I split into public and home. So activities where its open to the public or have to travel to and things to do at home. Each activity I remember to write down prices, times and dates. 
Lastly I like to decorate it so it looks all nice and Christmas-y I printed a design onto sticker paper as some notebook covers don't respond well to glue. Below is a picture of the one I used this year.

And that's everything! I hope this helps you.

As we go into November, I thought I'd kick off the month with another monthly favourites post.

This is the Rimmel Fix & Perfect Pro 5 in 1 Results Primer. Advertises that it smoothes, resurfaces, brightens, mattifies and protects. I brought this on sale in Asda for £4.98 as their Rimmel section was on an everything under £5 offer. This has been the best primer I've used so far, it's almost like a second layer of moisturiser. For me this product does most of the 5 results it says, dependent on the foundation that you use. Sometimes it doesn't always mattify and I have found this when using the No7 Stay Perfect foundation. The texture is very smooth, non-greasy and has a nice glow to it rather than a shine, it is lovely to wear alone as well as under your foundation.

Rimmel Match Perfection Light Perfecting Radiance Foundation (in 010 Light Porcelain). This was around the same price as the Primer. I have previously said how I'm reluctant to try new foundations with my very fair skin tone but after swatching I thought it was a good match. For me the coverage is fantastic, I only use one to one and a half pumps with a makeup brush. It hasn't got a greasy texture but shake the bottle well before using as sometimes it can come out a little runny. This foundation advertises it has Advanced Smart Tone technology for perfectly flawless skin under any light. Enhanced with sapphire radiance for an illuminating glow and lasts all day. This for me is true when I apply it with a foundation brush. When I applied with a sponge it wasn't as long lasting.

Now the US bloggers have raved about this product for months and the UK finally has it. These are the Baby Lips Lip Balms from Maybelline. I currently own the Pink Punch and Cherry Me ones. They both have a very lovely tint to them (colour matching the name) and are super hydrating. I am the worst person to moisturise their lips and usually go for a hydrating lipstick. These have been my go to now the UK is experiencing colder weather. What I love the most is the range of colour and colourless with the different scents. They smell amazing which makes them in some ways, addictive. They currently retail in Boots at £2.99.

The Real Techniques Core Collection Makeup brush set. These retail in Boots at £21.99 but I brought them on offer for £16.99 with P&P from Amazon. After reading amazing reviews on the buffing brush, I could only find it in this set. So far, I've only used the Buffing & Contour brushes and I'm very surprised by both. They are super soft and the bristles on them aren't too sturdy or flimsy. I have used the buffing brush with liquid, powder and mousse foundation and found that it works a lot better with the first two rather than the latter. With the mousse foundation you really have to work the product into the skin with this brush and takes a lot longer than using your fingers or a sponge. Since using this to apply my foundation people have been commenting on how flawless it looks. The contour brush as well has been an absolute miracle. I have only recently become a bronzer wearer. This is so precise and is great at contouring my nose without being so overbearing. The brush picks up bronzer and blush so easily (so will say warning for the heavy handed) but it doesn't create fallout when applying. I would say these were the top favourite of mine this month! 

Phil Smith Be Gorgeous Total Treat Argan Oil Hair Transforming Cream (mouthful!) This is an oil in cream treatment that says will miraculously transform the texture of your hair into lustrous silky locks. I bought this product last month but have only got round to really using it. I purchased this as it says it helps lock in moisture to heal dry, damaged hair and restore smoothness. Basically the ends of my hair aren't that great at the moment, with the weather changing my hair is going dry and thought I need something more than a heat protectant. I love this, the ends of my hair are starting to look less dry and feel smoother and healthier. As it is an oil in cream I was surprised it wasn't heavy or greasy. I brought this in Sainsburys for around £5 but retails on the Phil Smith website at £10.99. 

Maggie Rose - Looking Back Now

In my September Favourites post, one of my favourite songs was Preacher's Daughter by Maggie Rose. This month it is Looking Back Now. She has an amazing tone, amazing diction and if you haven't, check out her album Cut To Impress. She tells a story in such an amazing way. 

Well there are my favourites from this month, comment below what your favourites this month were.

As always, thanks for reading...
Wednesday, 9 October 2013
I recently took a trip to Boots...I tried to be good (I only needed concealer) but it didn't go to plan. I picked up a few products I've contemplated buying for a while. Boots had an offer across some brands, buy one get the other half price. Alongside the concealer I brought a bronzer, a blusher and a lip plumper.

This is the Bourjois Paris Delice de Poudre Bronzing Powder, it says its filled with glints of sunshine and I brought it in the shade 51. 
Firstly this product smells like chocolate...it's only a hint, but that's all you need. The sunshine reference refers to gold flecks it has inside which I think is lovely. It personally for me isn't too overbearing more a natural glimmer rather than a full shimmer look. This has a very fine consistency.When using a contour brush it picked up a lot of the product, so I recommend a light touch. This has a soft blend and can come off very natural or be buildable for a stronger contour. This is currently retailing at £6.99 in Boots.

The Bourjois Paris Blusher in Rose Frisson or Shade 54. I have always found that a light rose colour suits me and this looked very dark on first opening but is subtle. I really like the packaging, it comes with a little curved blusher brush that fits right inside the pot. I like that this was in a pot compared to the bronzer which is in a cardboard folder. I find it's more sturdy when in the bottom of my bag and I won't worry so much about it leaking. It also comes with a little mirror on the inside of the top lid that swings right back to a 180° angle. The colour has a little glimmer to it rather than shimmer, almost dewy looking. Unlike the Bourjois bronzer it doesn't take too much up on the brush, making it buildable. I am very happy with how this product is working for me, I don't have to use a lot of effort to blend and it stays put all day, I will definitely be going back. It is currently retailing in Boots at £7.99.

So the final product in this review is the Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Lip Plumper in Clear. I used to use a lip plumper when I was in my mid-teen years before converting to lipstick. I am very half and half with this product. The main thing is that it works, my lips look a lot fuller. I am not crazy on the smell, I can't really describe it. Sometimes I can bear it and other times I can't. It takes a little while for my lips to start tingling which in that time the gloss feels very thick on my lips. Also it comes across a little sticky which can be off putting. I started to layer this on top of my lipstick but if you buy the clear one, I do recommend cleaning the lip tool before putting it back in the tube as not to compromise the colour. This did come in a variety of colours but I brought clear to indicate the effect. For me this is an okay product but I don't think I will buy it again.
This retails in Boots at £9.00.

I would love to know if you have these products and what you think about them.

As we venture into October, I'm going to kick it off with my favourites over the past month.

St Ives naturally clear blemish fighting apricot face  scrub, claims it effectively lifts away surface oils and dirt that can lead to blackheads and blemishes. 
This is hands down not only my favourite product this month but I will keep repurchasing it. I have always been conscience to try new skin products before as my skin can be complex. I was worried this could break me out.
What attracted me was that it's for blemish prone skin, highlighted it was oil free with salicylic acids and has 100% natural exfoliants. The scrub has a lovely consistency, it isn't too abrasive and has become my miracle in a tube. My skin feels lovely and fresh after using this product. I highly recommend looking into this brand if you are after a new face scrub. Currently retailing at £4.29 in Boots.

No7 Beautiful Skin Moisturiser for Normal/Dry skin, says it is enriched with rosehip oil to smooth dry areas. They claim three quarters of women noticed a more radiant complex after just one week. After three weeks of use, I noticed my skin was a little more radiant but the hydrating quality was the biggest benefit. I love it is infused with SPF 15 and 5 Star UVA, especially with the nice weather the UK has been having. It is quite a thick and heavy consistency in comparison to previous products I've used but it isn't greasy and it blends really nicely into the skin. Sold in Boots and currently retails at £12.50.

Before I get into my makeup favourites for this month, I want to write about the amazing service I received from the No 7 Counter in Boots.
If you haven't heard, No 7 has come out with a new way to determine your shade of foundation called the Match Made Service.

In a nutshell the little handheld device (pictured on the left) will take pictures of your skin. They do this on both sides or sometimes on your face and neck giving a reading of what shade you will be. That shade is spread across the No 7 foundations so you can choose a liquid foundation, a CC cream...etc.
When I went to get mine done, I found I was the shade Calico (the palest shade, no surprise!) and the lady was very helpful with determining which foundation was going to give me the coverage I wanted. We had a bit of a makeup talk as I am such a novice and she said that if I ever needed a hand to come and talk to her. A few weeks later, I did when looking for eyebrow products. I have had these products for a while but after taking a break with the nice UK weather, they have soon enough became a favourite again.

No 7 Stay Perfect Liquid Foundation (In Calico), says it helps the skin to resist the signs of a makeup meltdown and gives non-stop complexion perfection. Soft, silky and flattering in any light, it will not rub or fade away, keeping your makeup looking freshly applied and retouch free for 16 hours. 
I love this foundation. I am not usually a liquid foundation person, my routine used to involve either a mousse or a powder cover, that has all changed now. What I love most is the cover, a medium cover, with a natural/matte finish but that's build-able. It's also Hypo-allergenic with SPF 15, great bonus points, the only thing that I still haven't tested is the 16 hour stay. It has lasted me the day without needing a retouch which is great as I'm not a top up make up person. This foundation has a brilliant consistency, not too runny or too thick and easily blends into the skin with a brush, sponge or your fingers. If you want to venture into liquid foundations, I recommend going to your local No 7 Counter. Available at Boots and currently retails at £14.00.

No 7 Beautiful Brows Pencil (In Black/Brown), says it defines brows without smudging or flaking. I have never been a shadow or powder person when it comes to filling in my brows. After deciding that I was going to stop dying my hair for a while I needed to find a lighter shade for my brows. Through my teenage years I over plucked them and although they aren't as bad now I don't need to dramatically draw them on, just fill them in a bit. This pencil is very soft and not as waxy in texture like previous brands I've used, so I wouldn't suggest it for the heavy handed. For people that need a quick fill and for it to last I recommend this 100%. It is currently retailing in Boots at £6.50.

Maybelline Superstay 10 Hour Stain Gloss (In Endless Ruby), says it glides on wet and smooth, never drags. Is vibrant and shiny wear, never flat and provides a lightweight layer or lasting colour. 
I don't agree with all the things this product claims to say. For me the vibrant factor doesn't last the full 10 hours, I would say more towards 6 but the stain is still there. The reason this is a favourite is the lightweight feel and the way it sits. I have tried so many stains that smudge under my lips and stain my skin, leaving me to go over with concealer on a brush straight after application. This stains the lips and just the lips. I love the shine this has as well, not too dramatic more of a natural dewy look. It is also buildable, uncommon for a stain. This currently retails at £6.99 in Boots.

Maggie Rose - Preacher's Daughter

So one day in April, I was just browsing through YouTube and Maggie Rose came up as a suggestion. I clicked on her music video for I Ain't Your Mama and literally had that song in my head for months. When her album Cut To Impress was released it became the only thing I listened to for ages. This month in the UK, The X Factor & The X Factor USA seasons started again and throughout the auditions I was hoping for a good Country singer. It wasn't until my friend asked what songs I want to hear them audition with, Preacher's Daughter popped in my head. Maggie Rose has amazing characteristics in her voice that makes you know its her and her vocal range reflects perfectly with this song. The story is sad and it really takes a twist to how you think it's going to turn out. It has become the song I keep singing and have in my head this past month.

Katy Perry - Roar

With the album Prism set to come out in late October, the single Roar has created such a buzz for it's release. In all honesty after listening to this song it did take time for it to stick in my head. Then it became another one of those songs I couldn't stop singing every time it came on the radio. The song changes pace quit easily with a stomp along beat over the verses and really building up on the chorus which is something Katy has done with previous songs. I think this song has such a simplistic feel to it but the meaning is a lot more personal. With pop music not reflecting as my favourable genre so far this year, I feel that may change with the release of Prism and I am so looking forward to it.

As you can tell from the title this is going to be about my University Experience and I have some tips I hope will be helpful for you.

I started University in 2010 studying Criminology & Psychology and graduated this year (2013). My original plan was to study Forensics but didn't receive enough UCAS points to get a placement. I was gutted, I only had that option as I didn't choose another course or university. This was because of having Jaw Surgery the August before I'd be due to start and wanted to stay at home. 
I did try calling the course's admin because they will sometimes still accept you, despite not having the qualifying markers, but the course had filled up. After discussing other options with a teacher, I decided to look through clearing. Clearing is a list of all the universities, their courses with spaces and the number of points you need to get in.
Three courses stood out to me and I decided to research them more and phoned the university clearing helpline to gain information. I went on to the Criminology & Psychology course with a two-week tester, to see if it was something I wanted to study. I ended up having the most amazing three years and achieved my degree at the end of it!

As a planner, situations like that stress me a lot and it's hard to remember that there are always other options. University taught me a lot, with many people due to be starting I thought I'd share my Top Ten Tips.

Tip #1

If you don't get onto the course you wanted, don't panic. As I said previously, I found another course that actually turned out to be better for me. There are options like clearing but if you didn't get on the course because of points, ring them and see if they still have spaces. They may still accept you onto the course and in my opinion, talking to someone over the phone or even face to face can give a better impression than a written application.

Tip #2

I'm a very chatty person but I was terrified about interacting with new people. I was lucky enough to have a friend from secondary school on a similar course but the first friend I made actually spoke to me first. The lecturer told everyone to chat with the person next to you, but she didn't have to. That made my confidence grow so I would open a conversation with someone by either saying "Hello, my name is Hannah" or "Hi I’m Hannah, are you liking the course so far?".

Tip #3

Get a Planner. Even if you don't update it with every task it's great to use as a countdown to deadlines. For me, it gave a sense of time with the structure being so different to Secondary School. 

Tip #4

READ READ READ. This is going to be viable to almost every course. When lecturers say to you this is the core reading and these are suggestions always pick at least 2-3 of the suggestions on top of the core to get more opinions and more in-depth studies on the theory or subject. Also, if you use journals in your subject, use them in your assignment. Journals are the most recent source of information on those theories and studies.

Tip #5

Don't be ashamed of asking for help. There are facilities there for you so don't be embarrassed to use it. A lot of other students will be in your position and it is completely understandable as the transition into the lifestyle or workload can take its toll. Whether it is to do with an assignment or a personal difficulty there is someone there.

Tip #6

Be safe on nights out. I know you will hear this from the university and maybe your parents but do take precautions. Don't let anyone you don't know, or trust buy or hold your drink. It is a scary thought, but you never know who anyone really is. Don't take out your bank card, and always keep some money aside for emergencies or taxi fare. If you lose your card it may be a few days until you're able to get a new one. Personally, I wouldn't take out a passport as I.D. I would always take my provisional/license as it's more compact and a lot cheaper to replace if it is lost, damaged or stolen.

Tip #7

Budget. I lived at home whilst at university, so I didn't have to do this as much and was lucky to have a part time job. This tip is from difficulties my friends had. It's best to be organised and think of the necessities other than food & toiletries. For example, if you have to pay for internet (and you can) budget the amount for the next month in advance. University libraries get extremely busy and it is always good to be able to work within your own space. A lot of people wouldn't consider it a necessity, but you are at University to get the best qualification possible.  

Tip #8

Be careful with what you think is "normal university experiences" and peer pressure. You make your own decisions. Just because everyone else can drink X amount doesn't mean you can. Be safe in determining what choices you make for you and choices you make for others.

Tip #9

Something I now wish I did more, was join in with societies. I spent my first-year dipping in and out of two societies and I now wish I stuck with them. It can open up more opportunities in making friends or experiences. It's also something that will look good on applications for jobs or further education. Although brief, I really enjoyed the time I spent, and it doesn't have to be a major thing. For example, I spent time going to and supporting the University's American Football team.

Tip #10

Remember that university is for you. It is your chance to say this is what I want to do, and I am at university taking the steps to get there. If you feel that it isn't what you wanted, then there is nothing wrong in taking a different path. Each job has many paths and university isn't always the way.

I hope that these tips help some of you whilst at University or if you're thinking about it.

Today's post is going to be focusing on an idea which I have used and found very nostalgic. It's also very useful for babysitters and childminders. It's a very simple and inexpensive craft related activity you can keep coming back to.

Things You Will Need

  • A roll or two of paper.
  • Pens, Markers, Crayons...etc. Depending on the age of the child you can use paint).
  • Scissors
  • Adhesive
  • Paper shapes
  • Plain Sticker Labels & Decorative stickers
  • A Rubber band
  • Newspaper

How It Works

Always start by laying down newspaper to protect the surface you are working on. Roll out the paper and start drawing, painting, sticking...whatever the little one’s fancy.  This is a normal rainy-day activity but, in a way, to keep all of their art together. When they have finished (or it's dry) you can roll it up, secure with an elastic band and store away for another day.

Additional Suggestions

  • Use this as an opportunity for the child to document your days out and events. It will make a great memory item.
  • I've found this is great for winding down time so when the child(ren) say they don't want to stop their livelier play time, you can say something along the lines of "we have to draw this on our big picture".
  • I included plain labels so you can stick the name, date and age of the child on the back of or next to each image. 
  • When you come to the end of the paper roll either tape or glue the beginning of another roll so it will carry on being endless!

When it comes to starting something new, there can be some awkward introductions...

  • I would love to study at Postgraduate level. The only issue is deciding what to study as there are a whole range of courses I could go onto and they all interest me.

  • I have slight OCD when it comes to eating multi-coloured sweets. I eat them in pairs and in a colour order, which differs between brands.
