Christmas Lights

It might be November but the shops are full of Christmas lights. 

For about two years now I have been looking for some lights to go in my room all year round and this year I have seen loads of Christmas lights that are perfect for this. 

My room is a vintage, shabby chic style so I wanted something cream and detailed, so when I saw these I had to buy them. These lights are cream rattan style hearts and £12 in Wilkinson's in the Christmas section and would look incredible on the tree too. But for now they are in my room. I had some lights from years back that broke so I wrapped the new lights in with them and I think they look great. What do you think?

Have you got any lights in your room? Let me know in the comments. 


P.S. Today I reached 20 followes. 20 of you reading my blog who I don't even know which might not be anything to you but it makes me super happy so thank you!

Top 25 Pandora Charms

My favourite pandora charms

Oh my, it's nearly Christmas! 

Last year I was lucky enough to get a Pandora bracelet and two charms. I have been having a look at what charms to put on my list and what charms I could buy my family and these where my favourites.

Pandora have a new collection called essence which look stunning but they are smaller so only fit on the new bracelet they have released which is such a shame because they are stunning, ho-hum.  

Have you got a Pandora bracelet or any of the charms above? Which are your favourite? Let me know in the comments.

Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick Review

I was asked on my recent 'Latest Beauty Buys' post (read that here) to write a review on my Kate Moss lipstick in shade 101 by Rimmel. I hope you get a better insight about this well talked about product.   

Oh My Goodness girls, I am so impressed with this lipstick. Firstly, it smells beautiful. I can't quite pin point what it smells like but its a fruity, berry kind of smell, mmm. It also feels lovely on your lips, I know that sounds odd but it doesn't have that horrible texture or taste to it which so many lipsticks sadly do. 

Before I even mention the beauty of the packaging, let me tell you that this product is highly pigmented and applies really easily. It stays on for a long time and stays in place. The matte finish makes it great for a more natural look but also for a more made up look. It just works. 

The bottom line is I will defiantly be buying this lipstick again and will certainly be trying out the other shades in the collection. This lipstick is 100% my favourite lip product that I own. 

Have you given any of the Kate Moss lipsticks a go? What colour is your favourite? Let me know in the comments.

Barry M Matte Nail Varnish Review

I was recently ask to review my new matte nail paint by Barry M in shade 338, Vanilla on my 'Latest Beauty Buys' (click here for a nosy at that). I have only worn it once admittedly, but as a fan of Barry M nail varnish I was won over by the thought of a new range by them. 

I have recently used some of there Gelly nail varnishes from Barry M which I found latest longer without chipping than any other range from any brand that I have tried before and I truly couldn't fault it.  

I was quite surprised and how 'matte effect' this nail varnish really was, they really do the job. It has no glitter or full shine to it but it does reflects the light. Its a very simple colour to wear and goes with everything, very much perfect for this time of year as are the other shades in the collection. 


Its only fault so far has been that the nail varnish has chipped quite quickly. Despite this little complaint, I would defiantly buy the other shades and recommend them for winter. I always think Barry M products are well priced and do what they say on the tin and this doesn't fail to meet that. 

Have you tried any of the Barry M Matte shades or found any winter-perfect colours from any other brands? Let me know in the comments.

What's on your winter or Christmas wishlist? Let me know in the comments.

P.S. Wondering where I have been? All explained HERE.

Lacking a Laptop

It seams crazy when I think back to about 11 years ago and remembering not having a computer in the house. How did we cope? 

Two weeks ago I was writing a blog post (which will be up later) and my computer decided it was going to crash and never turn on again! After being told it would be a £300 bill to fix it we went in search for a new laptop. With only my phone for Internet I have had no way of writing a decent post.
Well it has now been nearly two weeks on and I am tip-tapping away on my shinny new laptop.

How have you been? Any computer catastrophes to share? Let me know in the comments.

Love Charlotte
