How To Get Emma Watson's Style

Emma Watson looks amazing these simple black trousers, white shirt, cape and boots.
Emma is definitely one of my favourite style icons. She always looks so perfect.

The Cape Emma is wearing here is actually by Derek Lam and costs £579.53 which is quite expensive so i have some cheaper alternatives which still look amazing and expensive :)

1.  This cape is from BooHoo and is currently in the sale at £12. This cape is a real bargain, this is one of the cheapest i have found so far.

2. This cape is from ASOS and costs £75. This cape is made from a warm woven wool blend. This is definitely my favourite out of the three. It looks lovely and comes with a hood. It also comes with toggles and i love the checked lining.

Ponds Nourishing Cream

Hi Guys!

I recently went on the hunt to find a new face cream, as my skin starts to get very dry when the weather gets colder.

I went to my local Boots store and had a look across the shelves and come across the Ponds range.
I have tried the Ponds cold cream in the past and really liked it. So i though i would give one of their moisturisers a try.

This cream says that it "Improves the skin’s texture and illuminates skin revealing a youthful radiant glow."

This cream has definitely improved the texture of my skin and is very hydrating.

I always find it hard to find a really good hydrating inexpensive face cream. I have tried so many that make my skin feel worse or they makes me get break outs.

At £4.99 this is a real bargain and you get a lot of the cream in the pot. It also has White tea extract in and SPF 15.

I love the packaging this product come in.

You can buy this product from Boots or on their online store.

I highly recommend try the Ponds range as they are great products and are a great price :)

Which face creams do you like to use?

The Christmas Tag 2013

The Christmas Tag 2013

I recently came across this Christmas Tag and thought i would give it a go. I love Christmas, spending time with family, watching all the christmas movies that come on TV, eating lots of food!
Kirstie from A Yellow Brick Blog was tagging everyone, so i am really excited t be doing this Christmas Tag :)

1. What is your favourite Christmas song?
Erm.... I don't really know if i have a favourite. I love singing a long to lots of Christmas songs! I really do love listening to Michael Buble's Christmas album. I also used to love when i was little the Disney Christmas CD, in fact i still do love it! I do love singing along to 'I Wish it could be Christmas Everyday!'

2. Which is your favourite festive drink?
I don't really have a favourite Christmas drink to be honest. I used to love a bit of mulled wine though!

3. Do you have a favourite Christmas film?
I love the Home Alone films! I get so excited when they come on TV at Christmas! I also love watching ELF  and The Santa Clause :)

4. What is at the top of your Christmas wish-list this year?
I don't really have anything in Particular that i want for Christmas. I'm just really grateful for whatever everyone gets me. I love surprises :)

5. What is your favourite festive makeup or nail art look?
I love glittery nails for christmas. I currently have a gold glitter nail polish that i am loving at the moment.  I like doing the smokey eye look during the winter. I also like adding a bit of glitter on my eyelids.

6. What is your favourite outfit at Christmas time? (LBD? Christmas jumper? PJ's?)On Christmas day i usually just wear my PJ's and then i will probably change in to a nice comfy jumper! If i go out Christmas Eve i like to wear a nice dress or a top an skirt with some heels.

7. Would you rather play out in the snow or enjoy it from inside with the fire and a cuppa?

I love playing out in the snow. I love going outside in the snow and making snow animals! But i do also like getting back inside in the warm with a nice warm drink all snuggled up in my blanket  :)

8. Wrapping presents - love or loathe?
I am not overly fond of wrapping presents. I'm not very good at it i must say. The sticky tape ends up everywhere!

9. What is your favourite Christmassy food?
I love having a roast dinner on Christmas Day. I do love these free from mince pies that i buy, they are delicious and have icing on top :) 'yummy'

10. What is your favourite thing about Christmas?

Spending time with my family :) it's also my mums birthday on Christmas Day so i love spending the day with her.

Update - Healthy Eating, Painting and Spending Ban!

Hi guys!

I thought it's about time i did an update as it's been quite a while since i last did one!

It's been very cold the last few days, so i always like to snuggle up to my hot water bottle at night :) I bought mine from Primark for £5. Its so fluffy!
I have also invested in some jumpers to keep me warm when i am out or at college.
Iv'e become quite obsessed with jumpers lately! They look great with jeans or leggings.

So on to the healthy eating!
I always try and eat healthy although i do like the odd biscuit or two! Or a maybe a whole pack of party rings! (They taste so good!)

My mum recently bought this frying pan which i wanted to share with you all. I think it cost round about £30, which a lot of money for a frying pan, but the difference with this one is, is that you don't put any oil or anything in what so ever. You just put your food in in and let it cook!
You do have to be careful whilst using it though, you must only use a wooden spoon or plastic one to use in the pan to stir your food as it will scratch all the surface of the pan and not work anymore.
You also have to have the heat quite low too so underneath doesn't burn. But the food will still cook really quick as it is made differently and you can have the heat really low and the heat still spreads around the pan heating it up well so your food cooks.

All in all this is a very good product. You can buy it from most shops. I think my mum got this one from Wilko's.

Here i just cut up some mushrooms, peppers, asparagus, broccoli and tomatoes and put them straight in to the pan. Delicious :)

I have been working on my new oil painting and it's almost finished now.
I find it so relaxing painting. I love using oil paints.
You may remember i posted a photo of my last oil painting on here a while ago.
I can't wait to start my next painting :)

There is still a little bit more i want to do yet, but i'm really happy how it has turned out :)

I have decided to put myself on a spending ban! I recently bought a Macbook Pro which i absolutely love. But i have decided that i now need to stop spending and to start saving again. The only things which i am going to spend money on now is Christmas Presents.
I also try not to have any money in my purse as i always seem to end up spending it.
I am determined that i am going to keep up this spending ban. I have seen many other blog posts where other bloggers are doing this, so i have been looking at tips and tricks where i can save money.
I do have a few of my own which i would love to share with you guys, watch this space.

It is so easy to spend money, it's there and then it's gone again!
I have been doing some extra hours at work lately, so i am able to save a little bit more. As i am a full time student i only work part time, but its good to have some few extra hours here and there.

I really do love my Macbook Pro and i highly recommend them. I got the 13" Macbook Pro with Retina Display. I was looking at the 15" ones but this one is plenty big enough for me. 
I also got the home and student software so i can have word and publisher on it and a lovely pink case to put it in.
Although they are quite pricey they are amazing. I'm so happy i got this one.

I can't believe it is nearly December already, the days just go so quick!
And before you know it, it's the new year already!
I always look forward to Christmas as i love spending it with my family :)
It's also my mums birthday on Christmas day too so i love spending the day with her.

Soon be time to put the tree up :) Yay!

Please feel free to leave a comment in the comment section below :) I love reading what you guys think and if you have any questions i will answer them asap.

Hi guys!

I have been wanting to try Topshop's nail polishes for quite a while now as i have heard very good things about them. As i was scrolling through their site i came across these ones. I think these would look great for Christmas. I love painting my nails and there are so many great colours to choose from. 

Nails in Bittersweet

This is a gorgeous red colour and would look great for Christmas :)
I love red nail polish but i always find it hard to find a shade i like. But this is definitely one i would choose.

Nails in Bad Orchid
Topshop nails in Bad Orchid £6.00

I love this purple coloured one. I own quite a few different shades of purple nail polish but i am really liking this one.
Topshop Glitter nails in red £7.00

I though this would look great for Christmas. I love a bit of glitter, and its a lovely red colour too.

Nails in Croupier
Topshop nails in Croupier £6.00

I don't often go for real dark shades of nail polish, but this one caught m eye. It's not too bright and not too dark either.

Nails in Amethyst
Topshop nails in Amethyst £6.00

This one has to be my favourite, I love the colour :)

At £6.00 these nail polish's are good value. There also other lovely colours, and a very gorgeous pink one i love. There are also different colours of the glitter too. I love the packaging in which they come in. Especially the polka dot top.

I can't wait to get my hands on these!
