This is just a quick note to say I hope everyone has a happy and healthy New Year! Thank you so so much for all your support in 2012, it's been an amazing year for me and a lot of this is thanks to you guys. Thank you for hanging out with me on both my channels and for sharing some amazing highlights from 2012 with me, I hope you have all had good years too!
I am so excited for 2013, I always like the idea of having a fresh start and I will be back in the New Year with lots of exciting videos and daily vlogs for you guys! Please let me know if there is any particular videos you would like to see :)
In the mean time, I hope you have a wonderful night of celebrating wherever you are in the world. I'm having a quiet one with the family which will be lovely. Stay safe and keep happy, I love you guys loads!!
Hope you're all having a good week - I can't believe Christmas is a week away, it's so exciting! I know I've done a room tour on my vlog channel of the Corinthia hotel but I thought I would do a post as well. Sometimes I think it's nice to break up the blog a bit and put some lifestyle posts in the mix and not have solely beauty posts, I don't know about you but I personally love lifestyle posts! It's also great for those of you across the pond to get an idea of what this amazing city has to offer!
So we stayed here last week before we flew off to New York and it is just the most impressive hotel, from the decor to the service. They make you feel so welcome and it was such a comfortable stay and experience. The location is amazing too as it is right by Trafalgar square, making it perfect to pop out and be only footsteps away from anything you could need.
Here are some pictures of the room....
And of the bathroom which was so amazing and luxurious....
Here are the pictures of the hotel in general. The room below is where you have Breakfast and also one of the places where you can get an amazing cocktail by night.
Last of all here is a picture of my fiancé (eek!) with the complimentary chocolates they give you upon arrival. Just in case you didn't know, I got engaged to my boyfriend Jim last week whilst in New York and I thought I should mention it on the blog too! I just want to thank all of you for your incredible well wishes and kind words, it has been overwhelming and so touching to hear all of your congratulatory tweets and comments. We love you guys and it means so much!!

I wanted to share with you these beautiful Burberry palettes that I have tried out recently, I think they make for the perfect gift or for a bit of beauty indulgence! As I'm sure some of you know, I am a Burberry fanatic, everything from the clothes, the make-up, the campaigns, the models and their ethos I admire and find inspiring and ever since Burberry beauty launched I am yet to be at all disappointed by anything from the range.
So when I got hold of these palettes... I was very excited!! With the beauty range, I particularly love Burberry's colour choices and the packaging of the products - both are so effortlessly chic, stylish, and quintessentially Burberry. With these eyeshadow palettes, I love how they have the Burberry check embossed on to the powder and the way the shadows are packaged is so original. In terms of quality, and as you will see from the swatches, they are not the most pigmented of shadows and have a more sheer finish but I like how some of the more neutral shadows have a really understated appearance. Each palette has a really handy combination of colours for creating multiple looks.
This first palette is called No.6 'Plum Pink' and has the most autumnal selection of warm purple and browns. I think this one might just be my favourite.
Next is the the palette No.7 'Pink Taupe', this is more of a neutral quad but I think the colours look beautiful together and allow for unique looks to be created.
Last of all is palette No.1 'Smokey Grey'. This is more of a dramatic palette which would be perfect for creating a lovely smokey eye, a great one for nights out.
This is just a quick post to share my Christmas cheer with you! I am feeling so so Christmassy with all the lights everywhere, the parties and the food and drink and last but not least it's VLOGMAS!!! I hope you guys have been enjoying the videos so far, it's a pleasure doing them and sharing my days with you and it's also nice for me to document all the festiveness!
I also just want to say a huge thank you for supporting the blog and giving it some love. I love reading through your comments and seeing what kind of products you like to use and would recommend. I am really enjoying being back in the swing of blogging and it just wouldn't be the complete package without having some Christmas love on the blog!
Here are some pictures of my festivities so far!

Here are some other pictures I have found on Pinterest. I love Pinterest for finding great inspiration pictures and I will be using these pictures for ideas to decorate my house this year! Usually I would have my house decorated by now but because we don't know the date for moving yet we haven't put them up! I can't wait to put them up soon though and of course this will be on Vlogmas!
