little pick-me-ups

I have been in bed poorly for the past day or so full of cold and feeling rubbish. So I treated myself to a few little things. It’s pretty weird how shopping can make you feel instantly a little bit better! I noticed there was a Whistles sale on ASOS so I ordered myself a dress for christmas day and this whistles leather credit card holder it’s so pretty. (it comes in leopard print and green too!) I love the red, it feels and looks luxurious and who doesn’t need a little bit of luxury every now and then?

Models Own ‘party pieces’ exclusive to asos – ASOS Barry M ‘blood orange’ – ASOS 

I also treated myself to these nail polishes I think they’re perfect for festive nails! Models Own ‘party pieces’ is ridiculously sparkly and looks SO beautiful on. One coat is enough for your nails to be sparkling. I’m really impressed with this nail polish I just wish I’d bought it sooner! Barry M’s blood orange is also really pretty and I know I’ll wear this all year round! It lives up to it’s name and it really does shine!

This will probably be my last post as I won’t be blogging on christmas eve or christmas day as I want to enjoy it with my family. However would you be interested in seeing some photos from over the holidays? I know a lot of people don’t like seeing ‘what I got for christmas posts’ but maybe I could do a post of some photos of what I got up to over christmas and show you one or two of my presents what do you think?! Let me know in the comments please and have a lovely christmas

    The card holder is pretty! I personally don't like 'What I got for Christmas' posts, but it doesn't mean that I'm going to stop you or dislike you. Do what you think is right for your blog! 🙂

    Love your little purchases, it's always good to do some retail therapy when you're feeling down! I've always wanted to try gel nail polishes so I'd love to know if they're good xx

    I've been poorly too but you're so right, shopping makes you feel so much better! I love your blog design, it is very welcoming 🙂 and that image at the top is so sweet. I love the name and layout of your blog, that drawing at the top is so sweet. It makes me want to stick around and look about some more!! I'm having a Christmas giveaway if you'd like to join, merry christmas xx

    Oh I am obsessed with that nail polish! I have been wearing red for the past month and it is getting BORING! I need some sparkle (especially since New Years is so soon!). I agree with you about retail therapy, I am only 16 and it gets me through exams!
