Weekly Round-Up: #28


The countdown to Christmas is truly on now – only 5 sleeps left until the big day. I still have to work Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday but then I’ll be off until the 4th January yay!

I have been feeling particularly festive this week, it’s been a week filled with gift giving & receiving and trying out glittery Christmas inspired make up. Let’s jump right in.

Gifts: Giving & Receiving

 Highlight on Fleek

I won a fabulous blogger giveaway and I am now the owner of this stunning BECCA and Jaclyn Hill collaboration highlighter palette. If you missed my full first impressions check it out here – First Impressions: BECCA Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector Champagne Glow Palette. 
On Monday after a terrible day at work I arrived home to these beautiful flowers from my wonderful boyfriend Dave. These made me smile.

I also ordered myself this amazing star gift from Boots – the Soap & Glory Limited Edition The Whole She-Bang. A lovely pre-Christmas gift to myself 😊. This should have been £60 but I got it at the incredible price of £30. 

On Saturday night we went to our good friends Steph & Stephen to exchange Christmas gifts and give 3 year old Taylor her birthday gift. She loved her new sparkly dress and was keen to show me her bedroom, she even tucked herself into bed and gave me several books to read her. Magical! Once the children were asleep we ordered an Indian Takeaway and watched the Strictly final – unfortunately I forgot to take any photos!

Feeling Festive

These cute gingerbread men tree decorations were reduced to £1 each when I shopped in Tesco so these are two new welcome additions to our tree. 

I’ve also been cracking out the glittery nail polish and have been loving this deep red and rose gold glitter combo. Keep checking back to read my full Christmas Nails blog post during the week.

I hope you have enjoyed my weekly round-up. What have you been doing this week? Are you all ready for Christmas? I love reading and replying to your comments.

  1. Loving the nail combo Em, I’m soooo into sparkly nails right now – that’s so festive & pretty. How cute are those Gingerbread men!?!?! Will definitely be popping into Tesco to see if I can pick a few up – especially if they’re reduced to only a £1. Too cute not too hehe Great weekly round up lovely, always enjoy reading yours!!
