How did you start blogging and why? I started Blogging because I have always had a passion for beauty and fashion. I joined twitter in July and that was when I first really discovred the wonderful world of blogging! I instantly got hooked to a few of my favourite blogs, and just wanted to give it a go myself!

I Love the whole blogging community! Everyone is so lovely and theres nothing better than logging onto blogger too see some lovely comments! Knowing that people enjoy what I write really does make me smile!
Do your friends and family know about your blog?
Yes they do. My family get abit annoyed with me because wherever we go Im always snapping away with my camera, plus I dont stop talking about it! My close friends know and they often say too me 'do you like my outfit? You could do a post on it and then I could become famous' haha!

What beauty products are currently on your wishlist?
Hi Girlies today I wanted to show you this offer I found on the La Senza website. There pajamas's usually cost £30 for a top and bottom set. They are currently on offer to buy two sets for £25 yes that is correct no typo there. So you are getting 2 pairs for cheaper than 1 pair.
I ordered some for my mum for Christmas and think I may be ordering another 2 pairs for myself.
They have some gorgeous designs. I ordered my mum the owl and cute dog designs. I think this is a great Christmas pressie for people who you don't know what to get them.
So today I have got a interview with the lovely Hayley from www.onewaytickettogorgeous.blogspot.com. Her blog is amazing and I love reading it so I was so pleased when she agreed to take part in this feature.
How did you start blogging and why? I started my blog when I realised people might be interested in my thoughts on beauty and I was always suggesting products to friends so I thought why not make me thoughts public! I set up my blog with no idea what I was doing but have learnt more and more as time goes on through fellow bloggers.
What's your favorite thing about blogging? I like discussing my passion for beauty and discovering how other people feel about products too. It means that we can help each other save money and invest in only the best products on the market!
Do your friends and family know about your blog? Yes they do and they are very supportive. I have two sisters which is great for getting extra feedback on my blog and the ranges I try. I also keep my friends updated on my latest blog posts via facebook and twitter and the response has been great.
What are you 3 favorite make up brands? This is a tough one for me but at the moment I would have to say Chanel, MAC and Bourjois.
What's your daily skincare routine, which product do you use and why?I have used Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish for years because I haven't found a product which feels as luxurious and deep cleaning on the skin. It removes every last trace of make up. I then follow with the Liz Earle toner and moisturiser. The products are natural, high quality and don't destroy my bank balance!
What are your top 3 skincare brands? Currently Liz Earle, Origins and Decleor.
A product you think everyone needs to have in their collection? Shu Uemura eyelash curlers. They are a little more expensive than drugstore curlers but the quality is fantastic and they will last! I can't apply mascara to my lashes without using them now.
Whats your favorite foundation? At the moment, Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua. It leaves the most beautiful natural dewy finish but without looking oily on the t zone. I am eagerly awaiting the launch of Chanel Perfection Lumiere in the new year.
6 Blogs you enjoy reading? Apart from this one! Fleur de force, Beautyjunkieldn, quarterlifetalesofanniebean, thatgirlisgina, secretsfrombehindthemask and jenkiln :)
I have about 10 more of these coming up and if you would like to take part please email me or tweet me, I always reply.
Ahh I can't believe were almost in December, the year has gone so quick. I am normally to late to do a monthly favorites, so this month I will do it early.
Okay so now my picture won't turn the right way even though when I uploaded it it was fine. Anyway clockwise from top left is Rimmel 25 hour foundation in ivory, Simple spotless skin quick fix wipes, maybelline one by one volume express mascara, Sigma F80 brush, Batise in medium brunette, Colourtrend (from avon) final touch translucent powder, Carmex strawberry lipbalm and witch anti blemish liquid concealer in light.
The sigma F80 is my absolute favorite brush. It can be used for anything: foundation, powder, blush, cream blush...
The witch anti blemish concealer is a great product and one I will definitely be repurchasing. It costs about £4 so really worth it also the coverage it gives on spots is amazing and it lasts all day.
I have only been using the colourtrend powder this month because my rimmel stay matte is now in a million pieces :( This one smells really nice but can become to orange if too much is put on.
For the rimmel foundation, I wouldn't recommend it for pale skin (like me) unless you don't want much coverage as this comes out really orange. I just put the tiniest ammount on to cover redness and even out my skin tone. Its running out and I don't want to repurchase has anyone got any foundation suggestions?
Now these are the favorite favorites, that to me are daily essentials.
Batiste dry shampoo in medium brunette is amazing as before this one I had used up about 7 cans of batiste and they were all white powder and were hard to rub in if I was in a hurry. Now I cant spritz and go no need to worry about looking like I have grey roots. Around £3.99
I used to hate carmex with a passion I hated the whole petrolatum thing and hated the way it felt on. Surprisingly now this is a product I use everyday and it moisturizes your lips so well. About £2
The mascara is great, very volumising and doesn't seem to dry out in the tube a fast as other mascaras. It has a plastic wand which I like and I would certainly repurchase this again.
And lastly the Simple wipes are just what I've been taking my makeup off with.
Sigma have recently released their limited edition cities travel collection. There are 4 different cities included in the collection: London, Paris, New York and Tokyo. They all include 7 brushes from there best selling ranges. They are E05 Eyeliner, E35 Tapered Blending, E45 Small Tapered Blending, E60 Large Shader, F05 Small Contour, F15 Duo Fibre, and F30 Large Powder.
"London features 18K gold-plated ferrules and chestnut handles, representing London’s poise and elegance." The set cost $89 which is around £57. Personally I think these brushes are gorgeous as you don't come across brown brushes very often and the gold looks great with them.
"New York features classic and always stylish silver ferrules and black handles, representing this sleek fashion-forward city." These retail for $59 which is equivalent to £38, the other 2 are also this price. I think its a great purchase as the brushes are such great quality and also the container they come in is also 2 brush holders.
"Paris features red ferrules and handles, representing the romance capital of the world."
"Tokyo features electrifying pink ferrules and handles, representing this metropolis and its trend setting culture."
Are you going to be buying these? It is almost Christmas after all !
As all of the products from my last Christmas gift guide where from Boots I have decided to do another one with products from anywhere except boots. I have found a few things I would like to receive so I figured other people might too.
I got myself a present today from the Molton Browm stall at the Chatsworth House Christmas Market today and I have to say it was pretty cheap. It was Jo Malone and Molton Brown on the stall and the Jo Malone Christmas Cracker was only £30 when I believe its normally around £40. I will take pictures of these and make a post on them after Christmas as my mum has 'hidden' them until Christmas.
Anyway onto the gifts...........
Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual - £10
I personally think this book is a bargain at the moment. Its usually £20 but here its only £10. I have ordered mine and am already getting excited about it arriving.
Stila Daydream palette - £11.50
Again another great gift, you get 22 wearable eyeshadow colors so perfect for anyone who loves makeup. You also get free delivery if you order it from here.
Harajuku Lovers Jingle G EDT 10ml - £12.50 from perfume shop (you can get it cheaper from superdrug and fragrance direct)
This is a gorgeous scent but I am rubbish at describing perfumes so this is what they say....
"This Christmas 'Jingle G' is a super cute Santa with an adorable outfit to boot with a hanging ribbon she can also transform any Christmas tree."
Top notes: White Star Fruit, Gardenia, Tangerine Heart notes: Honeysuckle, Orange Blossom, Jasmine Base notes: Vanilla, Cedarwood, Laos Benzion
This gift set contains 3 of the most popular Christmas scents. I have only ever purchased Christmas eve and I can tell you that you need it in your life. It also comes with Christmas wreath and Winter Wonderland. The jars usually cost around £7.50 each so its really worth it. I think this is going to be a good gift for my mum this year.
