I absolutely love reading these posts, so I thought I would share with you a few of my favourite fashion and beauty purchases from May.

First up is this stunning floral wrap dress from Primark for £13 which caught my eye because of its gorgeous ruffles and Latin inspired style. Initially I was going to wear this to the Maison de Choup launch but decided to opt for jeans and a top combo due to the poor weather that was forecast for my journey up to London. However, I will definitely be wearing this in Mallorca later this year with a pair of black strappy heels.

Life is too short to wear boring clothes.

Next up is a few impulse beauty purchases. After being pampered by the lovely ladies at my local Benefit Brow Bar and Urban Decay prior to my trip up to London. I decided to invest in the following products.

Urban Decay Total Pervision duo set £22

Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray £23.50

Benefit Gimme Brow £20

The great thing is I was also given a free makeover by Urban Decay after purchasing two products, this was particularly enjoyable as I was able to attend the MDC launch looking lovely and glam thanks to the lovely Louise.

Last but not least is this stunning tribal inspired print bikini from Accessorize. I really love bright colours and the pink tassels add just the right amount of sass to complete my beach look. I will be pairing this with a big floppy straw hat and a cheeky pina colada.

After a lovely weekend up in Manchester with family, enjoying glasses of red wine and consuming Indian, Italian and good old British food. I thought it was about time I caught up and did a few posts for ‘Blogmas’.

I think I am driving Alex mad with my enthusiasm for Christmas and feel like I am turning into Buddy from the film ‘Elf’, as every time we drove pass a house with lights on, I would literally jump with excitement and I couldn’t help but admire the Christmas trees everywhere I went. What is happening to me? I think taking part in this years ‘Blogmas’ has definitely helped to get me in the festive mood that’s for sure.

But if you find yourself stressing about finding the perfect stocking filler or gift on a budget, then keep on reading as I have something for all of the special ladies your life from your Mum to your girlfriend and all for less than £15!

Initially, I decided to run a competition or giveaway on my blog, once my Instagram had reached 2,000 followers. However, I love buying presents for people and since Christmas is still a couple of months away, I decided to reward all of you lovely people with a pick n mix style giveaway. Thanks to the positive feedback that I have gained through Twitter I was able to ascertain exactly what you would all love to receive. If you want to discover exactly what is included in my giveaway then keep on reading.

So for the main prize I thought I would giveaway a few of my favourite things, if you already follow me either over on YouTube or have been reading my blog for quite some time, then you will already know that I am obsessed with candles, so the first thing I am giving away is this gorgeous cinnamon stick candle from Yankee candles to help get you in that Autunmal mood. Next I am giving away these cute cosy socks from Accessorize with Donuts on as I am obsessed with Krispy Kreme donuts and love my socks.

Whilst I was in Accessorize I couldn’t resist picking up this stunning rose gold necklace, I really struggled not to keep this for myself, as I love delicate looking jewellery and this cute compact mirror is perfect for touch ups on the go, plus its size means it will fit in your clutch for all of those upcoming parties. Of course, your going to want to update your wardrobe, which is why I am giving away a £10 Primark voucher, as you may already know, 99% of my wardrobe is Primark. I love styling high end pieces from Aspinal of London and Franchetti Bond with mainstream high street stores.

Last but not least I am giving away this cute little notebook with a London inspired theme, I did originally seek Parisian style stationary due to my blog title. However, sadly this was not available, so I decided London being my favourite City in the UK would be rather appropriate. I also picked up this adorable stickers just because I couldn’t resist them. I think this notepad will be great for keeping tabs on what you intend to buy your loved ones for Christmas.

Of course, I wanted to give my readers an extra chance of winning and so I decided to offer a runner up prize, which will be a £10 Lush voucher, so you can treat yourself to a couple of goodies either for Halloween or Christmas perhaps.
