Origins GinZing Gift Set





Origins gift set
I received this gift set as a christmas present as my mum knew that id be wanting to try out some origins products for some time so i was so excited to try out these products when i received them! Firstly how cute is the little bag that the comes with this gift set, it so adorable! I think this would make the perfect gift for anyone.
This gift set includes:
-GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturiser 30ml
-GinZing Eye Cream 5ml
-Ginger Burst Savoury Body Wash 50ml
-GinZing Brightening Mascara 14ml
-Drink Up Hydrating Lip Balm 7ml (Berry Splash)

Although i haven't tried every single products from this gift set yet (individual reviews coming soon) my favourite has to be the moisturiser, the smell of this product is amazing it smells exactly like Terry's Chocolate Orange and it leaves you're skin feel refreshed and hydrated and also make you're skin appear a lot brighter.  Likewise the eye cream also has this amazing scent which i love and this really does help your eyes look a lot brighter especially of a morning. The lip balm is also amazing, its a hydrating lip balm which does its job well but also this has a tint to it as well and it comes in 8 different shades. I haven't tried the mascara but it claims to brighten and lift you're lashes and I've only heard good things about this product. Lastly is the ginger body wash, which I'm also yet to use as i have so many! but this product smells amazing and obviously i would recommend to anyone who loves the scent of ginger. 

Full review of these and all of the other products coming soon.

Alphabet Accesories












I received all these lovely items as gifts from my lovely sister for christmas (ill leave her link at the bottom). Ive always loved these initial print products and had my eye on some for a while now so i was so happy to receive them. I think all of these would make an amazing gift for anyone and adds that extra personalised touch which everyone loves! Thinking of it these might make a lovely mothers day gift which will approach sooner than you think! 
Firstly the pillow, i love this so much i think there a cute personal touch to any bedroom and would make it look so cute and £5 i think this is such an amazing price.
These initialised candles are so cute and who doesn't love candles! These i must admit burn pretty fast but what would you expect from a little candle like this but priced at £4 i think these would look cute anywhere around the house also i must admit there isn't so much as a fragrance from this candle it just smells nice and fresh and relaxing.
Lastly is my favourite the mug, this is available from anthropology and are £6, which i was pretty surprised about as i was expecting them to be a lot more but i just love the detail on this mug like the handle and the bottom of this mug, the extra details always make a difference.
What is you're favourite?

You can find these products at the following:
Initialised pillow: Ebay
Initialised candle: Asos
Initialised mug: Anthropologie

My first post this year and in 2 months!


This is my first post of the new year, can't quite believe I'm writing this as I can't believe how fast the past year has gone. Not only is this my first post of 2015 this is my first post since November! I had a long but much needed break, with me starting university in October I didn't feel I could get the balance between work and my blog and also a bit of me was being lazy, but heres to a new year of blogging, I am hopefully going to get back to regularly blogging but there will be at least one post per week. 

My five goals for 2015:

Learn to Drive 
Its been something I've been meaning to do since i turned 17 but it was something i always seemed to put on the back burner so this year, this month in fact i am determined to start my lessons. 

Get a job
Although I'm at university full time, there is definitely still room for a part time job in there and its been something I've said to myself i was going to get for a while now. 

Visit at least one country or city I've never been before
I am one of those people that seems to stick to the same places when i find something good but i love trying out new places so this year i am going to push myself to go to at least one place I've never been and id love to go to more than one if possible.

Try new things
Whether it be food, experiences or anything at all, i definitely need to step outside my comfort zone and try new things this year.

Most of all, be happy.
Be happy and do more of what makes me happy.

What are you're goals for 2015?
