I have been out of action for a few days so I am late with this unboxing. I have high hopes for this box following the debacle that was the December Birchbox.

The box itself isn’t what I would describe as festive in colour but it has lovely gold lettering that says” Mince Pies, Starry Skies” – love it.Β  So, what did I get in it?

I got 5 FULL SIZE products and a chocolatey treat – did you hear that BirchBox? 5 FULL SIZE, none of your Scrooge samples.

  • Naobay Gel to milk cleanser – RRP Β£15.99
  • Laqa & Co Cloud Lips – RRP Β£12.70
  • Profusion Runway Eye Collection – RRP Β£3.75
  • Steve Laurent Precision Tip Eyeliner – RRP Β£18
  • Econdenta Extra black whitening toothpaste (its freaky) – RRP Β£4.49
  • Ferrero Raffaello Chocolates – Christmas Treat


Total box value: Β£54.93 – the products are lovely and the packaging of the lippy and liner is GORGEOUS

Love the box and the contents

God bless us, everyone


Blogmas: 15 sleeps……

I have no other things of the day as I am dying with a tooth infection hence my absence yesterday – I currently look like the elephant man. I have not got out of my bed for 24 hours but I did read this book in one sitting. It has gone straight into my top 10 – I loved it.

Read it!

God bless us, everyone πŸ’–πŸ­

Christmas tip of the day: If your little ones are having trouble understanding how Father Christmas gets in your house if you don’t have a chimney, watch The Santa Clause………


I am about to set off to London town for 2 days in the big smoke.Β  This should be fantastic as I could go and see all the wonderful window displays in Harrods etc and go and see the lovely Christmas Tree in Trafalgar Square but alas I am going for work so the next 48 hours will be fighting for a seat on the Tube, trying to find an office I have not been to before, looking like a tourist glued to Google Maps. Of course, I cannot forget, rubbish water that makes my hair go weird and black snot – thanks London Transport!

I have decided to omit the Barry M dazzle dust as I want to arrive looking like a sophisticated northerner – Ha! as if! I will arrive hot and sweaty and grumpier than theΒ  most grumpiest thing, I don’t do well away from home when I can’t have a brew and cig at the same time and have to go outside at 2am in PJs, a crumpled face and bedhead to alleviate my requirement for tobacco. Bah humbug!

7:32pm I have arrived. I have black snot…..

God bless us, everyone πŸ’–
