Hey Peeps did you guys have a nice Christmas?
Mines was pretty good family came over, got lots of nice presents and ate lots of food you know the drill! My parents are the Grandparents so it's always been a tradition for everyone to come to ours on Christmas and have a huge Christmas Dinner. My parents put a lot of effort into making the home perfect for everyone. My Mum does usually all the decorating and my dad prepares and makes the Christmas dinner which takes most of Christmas Eve and as well as Christmas day.
Offt been thinking about how the year went a lot in general and wanting to answer or sum it all up as either a good or bad year but it's actually been very difficult. I keep looking at all those question thingys people make and thinking about the answers so I might just try to do one of them to help with that. Don't mind if you would like to do it to would be cool to see your answers. :)

SO THIS IS CHRISTMAS!?
Hey peeps I've been running around even though Uni is gone till January. There's been a lot of celebrating and catching up with friends again with some nights out chucked in the mix. A lot of my peeps are going home for the holidays so been catching up with them having tea and general chat with films and video games in the mix.
OFCOURSE THERE'S FOOD IN THERE TOO!
A very dear friend of mine is also on her way to Canada for an exchange so we sent her on her way with a little bundle of Canada related presents. Including the Ryan Gosling colouring in book, you gotta have that.
Amongst my adventures remember when I said a friend of mine bought tickets for me and them to see a band? Well we finally went to see them last Friday and the band was Placebo?!
First song ever heard by them.
It was actually so good had a great time and was so surreal to see them live. They were the band that I grew up with in High school and where 'that band' that got me through all the rough times. I think we all had at least one band who did that for us all. I was so obsessed with these guys that it was sick knew everything about them and knew every lyric and song. But never went to see them cause was young and parents wouldn't let me go on my own. But seeing them older was pretty amazing but also surreal and it's just like wow I used to be into these guys so much?!
But they do a good show would totally recommend them.
Besides all the hefty Christmas shopping that I've been pretty lazy about doing in all honesty I picked up a couple of things for myself. Their is a lot of bargains just now and it was after finishing all my course work.
The dresses come from New Look and I got them both pretty cheap from the original price. Best thing ever when you discover you can buy kids clothes for cheaper prices.
Kids have beautiful clothes these days!
Since it was getting a little chilly I thought it would be good to invest in some cardigans in colours that match most of my other outfits.
The colours look a bit washed out in the photos apologies but the dress is black and the last cardigan is emerald green.
I'll be going home to see my family for Christmas by the weekend more peeps want to see me before I have to go. Then that will be very busy and crazy as it always is as well.
Dress: New Look
Jumper: George Asda
My swan princess look I loved that movie as a kid it's the best not worn so much blue before but I think I like it.
You guys going home for Christmas?
WHAT DOES THE FOX SAY?!

It has been a while since I've did one of these reviews but I would like to get back into the swing of things around here. I used these products up a while ago but I still wanted to share them with you guys.
The happiest being the highest and the saddest being the lowest.
Lily of the Valley Shower Gel
This little guy didn't last me a great length of time maybe about a month, maybe less than that but I mean it is a small bottle. It came in another set of products with the same theme and brand but I have yet to use them.
The smell of the product is probably the best thing about it if you like weak but natural smelling products. This smell was also a favourite of my Grandmother and she would always smell like it so the product has some memory attachment for me.
Since it is a shower gel it does have a gel like consistency so personally it doesn't feel that pleasant on the skin for me anyway. It's almost like it's washing up liquid but using it on other parts of your body feels a bit strange ha ha. But it does make you feel cleaner and refreshed since after using it.
Price wise I can't argue with as it was a gift and as part of a small beauty set and as far as I'm aware the set is from Poundland so it is a great stocking filler for just £1.00.
The packaging is clean and crisp and using the simple lay out of text and the image it is clear and to the point of what the product is. The colour of green and white also gives the impression of it being natural and to cleanse if you like that sort of thing.
Personally I don't think I would buy this product again because of the little amount you get. It wasn't to my taste of how it felt on my skin but I wouldn't mind trying other alternative products with Lily of the Valley scent.
Not one of the best products but as a little extra for friends or yourself and as a money saver not bad.
Sanctuary bath creme
This product ended up lasting me a great length of time for being such a small bottle it lasted for a good few months if used nearly every wash. It also came in another set of products of different kinds I'm still using them currently to try the others out. The smell of the product is quite strong I found like a perfume since it has coconut, honey, and spices which gave it's smell a kick. I personally like all those kind of smells apart from the spices but if your someone who doesn't like mature strong smelling perfume wouldn't recommend this.
I enjoyed washing myself with this product as the consistency of the liquid was really creamy and soft and you get a lot of the product in just one squeeze. It feels very soft and luxurious on the skin and I
felt very clean and pampered after using it.
Cost on it's own I can't find it on the website but I have found the beauty set it is part of. £13.10 isn't bad at all for the quality of product you get and the other different types included in the set.
The Packaging is quite pleasant and I do like the design and body shape for holding would say it looks pretty fancy ha ha. I do really like the design on the beauty set box as it is already like it is gift wrapped if you were wanting to give it as a present.
Overall the product is really good quality and presentation is great but think I would rather buy the set for a friend than rather for myself the next time.
Pretty positive over all my experience was of this product and wouldn't mind using again but would also like to buy for a friend.
That was really fun to do one of these again!
Do you guys have any fave bath products just now to help you keep toasty and relax during the festive holidays?
I have finally managed some cheeky recent buys and outfits in between being free from uni and Christmas shopping. You guys looking forward to Christmas?

It has been a very stressful and busy time indeed their has been a lot of negative events that have happened to my family. Including my dog having a tumour and it has been up and down news if there is anything we can do to save him. Also for a while my health wasn't to great again and I had depression and didn't leave my flat for about a week and more. It caused me to have a complete mental breakdown in a public street but I'm feeling better now.
This was due to being a therapist for everyone else around me and helping out with their troubles and neglecting my own. Yeah I'm that friend for everyone you might be that one to or know a dear friend who you turn to often. My relationship was slipping away as well but were working on it. And yet Christmas is just around the corner and it's now a sad time of year because half of the family still won't talk to each other and be there for christmas.
I have missed all your blogs and amazing comments so much it's been difficult to not have my little place of getting everything out and feeling better. For lack of better words and now finally having the quiet at 5.40 am to write back to you all. Here has been the last three months in pictures mostly good times.
I've had many shared dinners and food nights with my new beautiful friends.
I also made an interactive ibook for the ipad.
Been in and out of woods a lot and it has helped my mood been loving autumn.
Me and Ally dressed up as Daft Punk for Halloween this year.
Finally celebrated Bonfire night in my student town.
Helped out my friends and classmates with their art projects and shows including them making a film.
And had my work ready for assessment.
It's now time to rest a bit and start getting ready for to say goodbye to friends for the holidays and Christmas shopping. I hope your last few months have been great guys and I hope to catch up with you all soon.
