My Tanya Burr Advent calendar! The final day: Blogmas day 22

Hi guys!


So, today is the final day of my Tanya Burr beauty advent calendar ‘Tanya’s treats’

Ive really enjoyed having a beauty advent calendar again this year and have got some super sparkly and glitzy products ti try out.

They should see me through to new years too.

Lets look behind window 12…


It’s a bit more sparkle in the form of a glitter nail varnish. This one is called ‘Glitter frosting’ and is a beautiful goldy, bronzy toned glitter polish.

I actually LOVE this colour, I haven’t got anything like this tone in my collection and it is SO pretty!!


It is a bit different to the other glitter I got as it isn’t just clear with glitter particles in it but it has a shimmery background tone to it too.

3 days to go!!


Until next time,

My Tanya Burr advent calendar : Blogmas day 20 πŸ—’

Hi guys!

Today is the penultimate window of my Tanya Burr advent calendar! Its gone so quickly, December always seems to go so quickly and even though I love that Christmas is only 5 days away I’m also aware that it will all be over soon.

I hope these next few days don’t go too quickly as I have now finished my main job for the holidays and so I want to enjoy a bit of festive time off before the big day.

So, lets take a look behind number 11…

It is another little glitter pot! This one is called ‘Midnight magic’ This is an eye glitter pot and is perfect for creating a sparkly, smokey eye. A definite must for a Christmas party or drinks with friends over the festive period.

Check back for day 22 of Blogmas and the last window of my Tanya Burr advent.

5 days to go!


Until next time,

My Tanya Burr advent calendar: Blogmas day 18

Hi guys!

I’ve only got a few windows left!

Behind the latest window was…

AΒ  mini nail file. Its a lovely dark and christmassy red. It is the perfect size to pop into your handbag.

Hopefully if my nails are nice and smooth I won’t be so tempted to bite them!! πŸ’…

Sorry its a short post but there’s only so much I can write about a nail file haha.



This time next week it will be Christmas πŸŽ…


Until next time,

My Tanya Burr advent calendar: Blogmas day 16

Hi guys!

It’s time for another look inside my Tanya Burr beauty advent calendar!

Let’s dive straight in…

Behind number nine is a lovely lip gloss in the shade ‘Ice queen’. Its a lovely shiny, slightly glittery/iridescent white and clear gloss.

It’s really pretty and perfect for this frosty, festive season.

This would be great on its own or as a top coat to add a bit of shine and sparkle to your lips.

Super pretty!


Until next time,

My Tanya Burr advent calendar: Blogmas day 8

Hi guys!

So, its time to have a look behind another window of my Tanya Burr advent calendar.

Let’s take a look…

Today’s little gift was a lovely little lipgloss.

This lip gloss is called ‘Pink fondant’ and is a lovely pinky nude. It reminds me of Tanya’s ‘Pink cocoa’ lipstick but in lip gloss form, if you’ve tried ‘Pink cocoa’ you’ll know how pretty the shade is.

This gloss is a perfect everyday nude with a lovely pinky tone to it. It would also be great to accompany a smokey eye make up look for the evening.

Like the other gloss, it glides on beautifully, looks lovely on and isn’t at all sticky. For a lip gloss it is surprisinglyΒ  long lasting too.

I am really pleased with this and am sure this is going to be a new staple for my make up collection.

Seeya tomorrow!

17 days to go!

Until next time,

The start of advent! πŸŽ„ Blogmas Day 2

Hi guys!

Its day two of Blogmas and its an advent update. I have two advent calenders this year, a chocolate one (Cadburys of course!)

…and a beauty advent, Tanya Burr’s ‘Tanya’s treats’ beauty calendar.

Tanya’s beauty advent calendar is 12 days of Christmas so every other day my Blogmas post will focus on what I have got inside the calendar.

20171201_073230I love having a beauty advent and I wasn’t able to get my hands on Tanya’s last year so I was really pleased to get one, I love her beauty range.

The calendar is really nice, I love the rose gold and shiny burgundy colour scheme and cute sweet shop scene.

Lets take a look at day one!

Behind window number one was a lovely red nail polish. I love the packaging of her nail varnishes, the large gold top and gold writing look really sleek.

The colour is ‘Festive Red’ and is a beautiful and bold Christmas red. This is perfect for the festive season.

20171201_204918(Apologies for the state of my nails!!)

I cant wait to open the next door on Sunday!

Until next time,

  • Bourjois radiance reveal concealor in the shade ‘Ivory’ Β£7.99

My recent make up purchases πŸ’„

I’ve defiantly got more into make up since the wedding prep and make up trials. So many times I would think about buying make up then change my mind because I probably wouldn’t use it or even know how! I now go into shops to seek out new pieces for my ever growing collection and I find it quite exciting to experiment with different brands to see which ones work the best for me! 

Here are my purchases from yesterday…

First up is is cute little eyebrow focus & fix shaping kit by Revoution.

 I got it in light-medium as i have fair hair so like to keep my eyebrows toned down a bit. I like that you get the wax to shape and three different tones to use. 

This is a great size to pop in your handbag and is only Β£2.50! Very affordable.
Next up…

Highlighter, highlighter, highlighter 🌫

I have really got into highlighters recently, they are a relatively new addition to my make up bag as I was a bit wary of how to use it to be honest. This is by Revolution and it’s their highlighting powder palette.

This one is so pretty and has three different shades to choose from. 

I’ve only used the pinkie tone so far but I can’t wait to try out the others too. I’ve been watching YouTube videos to give me some tips.

Here’s a photo of the highlighter in use. You’ll have to excuse the quality of the photo as I only have my phone to use πŸ™ˆ

This retails at Β£8.00.

Next up… All about the lips πŸ’‹

If I had to pick one item to carry around as a make up essential it would always be something for the lips. Yesterday I grabbed a couple of lip products.

This is a lip liner by BarryM. I actually picked this up after watching one of Zoellas blogs on her June favourites. Here’s a link to that: June favourites 2016

I brought no 15 which is shade ‘Rose’. This retails at Β£2.99.

I’ve left my favourite until last!

This is a Matte liquid lipstick by Bourjois, from their Rouge velvet edition range.

This is the second color I have brought from this range and I πŸ’– it. The shade is no 09 ‘Happy nude year’.

These are so great, they look lovely on and are really pigmented. It applies really smoothly and stays really well even when eating and drinking . One of the things I like the most about this Matte liquid lipstick is that it is much less drying than other ones I have tried, it feels really moisturising. I really like Sleek make up liquid lipsticks but they leave your lips feeling really dry as if they will crack,  this make doesn’t have that effect but still has the great look of a matte. 

This shade is a nudey orange tone and I really like this, especially as it’s now summer🌞 this will look great on holiday with a tan πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

These are also in cute little bottles perfect for popping into your handbag. They retail at Β£8.99. I would highly recommend giving these a try!! πŸ‘„

It was a great time to go into Superdrug as they were offering 3 for 2 across their make up brands, I also managed to pick up a couple of nail varnishes πŸ’…πŸ» for a friend in the offer too, saving myself Β£6 in total βœŒπŸ»

I hope you enjoyed taking a look at my purchases, let me know how you’ve got on with these products or any you think I should try πŸ’πŸΌ

Until next time,
