Hi lovelies! Another Christmas gift guide for you all! I know the blogosphere is full to bursting with festive posts right now, but I think inexpensive guides like this are much more reasonable and realistic for the majority of people. I see so many high end gift guides, which are lovely, but not always ideal if you're looking to buy a small gift for a friend! So, as the title suggests, everything in the gift guide is £10 or less, perfect for stocking fillers, or just a little something for someone special.

Lush is always a winner for gifts as they're not only gorgeously scented and fab for your skin, they also come beautifully packaged, which is great for saving a bit of time wrapping presents. One shop that I think is seriously on point with their gifts this year is Debenhams. The gift section in their stores is beautiful, you can find something for pretty much anyone and their prices are very reasonable too. The jewellery tray in particular is a favourite of mine. I love jewellery trays and this one is just too cute! Another favourite of mine at Christmas is Boux Avenue, I adore their underwear but their gift section is my absolute favourite. Like Lush, they also gift wrap beautifully with every online order or in store purchase. This little bodycare gift set is such a wonderful gift on it's own, but their gifts are actually all three for two, so that's perfect if you have a few people to buy for and the fancy packaging feels a little bit for luxurious too!

Speaking of luxury, I mentioned in my 10 under £10 for Him gift guide that anything from Harrods always feels a little more special, so for this post, I chose two of my favourite girly gifts. At the time of writing this, the makeup bag is on offer for £10, so I thought it was okay to include it! Fingers crossed it stays that way! The other is a Pom Pom key ring, I know these are everywhere right now, but who wouldn't want one from Harrods, right?!

From high end to high street, Primark has so many gorgeous things right now, but this bobble hat and satin pyjama set were two of my absolute favourites. Both perfect for the festive season, but they'll work throughout the whole winter too. For little gifts that will please just about any lady in your life, I thought the Snowflake Cookie candle, Rollerball set and Lipgloss trio were all amazing gifts. The candle is my favourite festive scent of all time, it's super sweet so it may not be your thing if you're not into sugary sweet smells but I'm obsessed! The rollerball set from new look is lovely as the scents are all different and can take you through the whole year, they're really handy to keep in your bag for little perfume top ups throughout the day. I love Makeup Revolution as a brand so any gift from them is going to be a winner. I think inexpensive makeup gift sets like this are great for any girl, but particularly for those just starting out with makeup, it's nice to receive a few things in one.

So that's it! What do you think? I for one would be more than happy to receive any one of these gifts on Christmas day!

Send any gift guides you've done over my way as I've found them seriously useful this year!

Hi lovelies! Today, I wanted to do another Christmas gift guide for you all. As it's now officially less than one month to go, I'm starting to get into the Christmas spirit and starting to get serious about getting my Christmas shopping done! Of course, Christmas is an expensive time of year though, so I thought this time, I'd do a couple of '10 under £10' gift guides. I'm starting with one 'for him', because let's face it, boys can be hard to buy for! If there are any other themes you'd like to see, then definitely let me know! A simple for him and for her, or perhaps some more specific, like for Mums, for Grandparents etc.

BRIDAL: WEDDING DRESS SHOPPING DOS AND DON'TS

None of these dresses are my actual Wedding dress so no dramas!!

Hi lovelies! It's another Bridal blog post for you all today. As many of you will know, I'm going to be getting married next Summer, so by now. Wedding planning is already underway! I posted a little while ago about my experience at Wed2B, a discount wedding dress store, in that post, I did share a few tips, but today, I thought I'd go into a little more detail about dress shopping and share some of my tips for Brides-to-be! I'm going to keep this as simple and straightforward as possible, but I apologise in advance for any rambles and tangents!!

REVIEW: REVOLUTION VIVID BAKED HIGHLIGHTER GOLDEN LIGHTS


Hi lovelies! It feels like forever since I've done a good old fashioned beauty product review for you all! The truth is at the moment, I've just not been trying too many new things makeup wise and those that I have tried just haven't really blown me away! With a wedding to save for, I've been pretty strict on what I spend my money on, gone are the days of buying £100 worth of high end makeup every single pay day! With that in mind though, I did decide to pick up a few bits in Superdrug's 3 for 2 sale. I decided to stick exclusively to brands that were particularly inexpensive as I figured that even if I don't love the products, I could at least blog about them, right??

A/W PRIMARK WISHLIST



Hi lovelies! Today, I thought I'd share a good old fashioned wishlist with you all. I feel like it's been ages since I've done one of these, are wish lists still a thing? I hope so, because what with wedding planning and saving for Christmas, I'm not left with a whole heap of spare cash to be doing lots of hauls let me tell you! However, that brings me to the best part of this wish list. Everything on this list comes to less than £100! Quite a bit less in fact, if you were to buy every one of these, it'd only set you back £71.50! Particularly when buying on trend pieces that I don't think are going to stand the test of time, I really don't like paying over the odds, as I know that while I may love a faux leather slip dress this year, I could look back in a years time and wonder what on earth I was thinking!
