New Years Eve Essentials

Hello everyone, its been a long time coming since I've sat down and written a blog post. I am just sitting around, wondering what to do for New Years Eve. I know I'm going to a friends for dinner and then a good bogey, so I'm sure that my head will be rather sore in the morning to say the lease. Last year, i sat on my own watching High School Musical. I kind of, do not want to do that again, but it may end up that way. I thought i would do a blogpost on the essentials that i will be having on New Years Eve. Everyone is different, but this is just what i will be having on the evening, regardless if I'm spending it alone of with others.
Champagne, sweets, chipsticks, camera, phone, glasses, flutes and music are all you need in my opinion. If you are spending it alone, you could add a couple of DVD's in to the mix as well. I also like to add some cordial to my champagne to make it more flavoured. I am not a typical fan of the champagne flavour, but i love this blackberry and blueberry cordial which is amazing! 
Regardless of whether your snuggled up on the sofa or going out to celebrate, i really hope you have a lovely evening and that you enjoy yourself. Lets embrace the hangovers that I'm sure, plenty will be sporting on New Years Day!

Tanya Burr Lipglosses

Hello everyone, so I did it again. I bought them all. I just had too. I am a huge sucker for the first set of lip glosses that Tanya bought out so i just had to get these ones and my oh my, i am not disappointed. 

There are 8 new shades and i think i love them all so much, i actually can't decide on my favourite one. Again, they smell like strawberry chewitts and who doesn't want strawberry chewitts smell on their lips?? I think this collection focuses more on winter/autumn shades which i love this year and think are very trend led which is good in my books. Again, like the last collection of lip glosses, the texture is exactly the same, very smooth and not sticky at all. no one like sticky lip glosses. They are still super moisturising and makes your lip super soft, like a really comfy bed or pillow.

First of we have Daydream which is a really pretty nude with glitter in. The glitter is very unobvious on the lips and on my lips, it acts more as a clear gloss, so would look great over a matte lipstick. Next up is my favourite and is called Lunch Date. This is like the perfect shade for my lips and on an everyday basis. A pinky nude and although its not that opaque, it does a nice wash of colour on the lips.  Next is Sparkling Dewdrops. This is a really pretty glittery pink. Again, the glitter isn't obvious on the lips, but it adds another dimension to the lips which i love! Finally, is I Found Nemo. the name is so cute and the colour is amazing. I think its a cross between a peach and pink and is stunning on. This is the perfect spring lipgloss in my opinion. Its not super opaque like the first lot of glosses, but a nice wash of colour tints the lips.

First we have Aphrodite, which is a gorgeous coral colour with gold reflex. This colour is to die for and on the lips, i think its look beautiful. Next up is a beautiful dark berry shade called Berry Picking. This is a beautiful colour and a subtle wash of the lips creates a glaze of colour. Next up is a shade, that i personally think is overlooked. I love this shade and its one of my favourites. Chocolate Fondue is a gorgeous brown shade. It is very subtle on the lips, but it looks incredible. Finally, the most beautiful deep red/ burgundy Enchanted Forest. I love these colours for Autumn and Winter and this is amazing on the lips. Super pigmented and just all over amazingness!

Overall, Tanya hasn't failed and has produced incredible products once again. I love them all so much and still love the smell of them. Super moisturising, not as pigmented as the other collection i feel, but still an incredible price for an amazing product. One thing i have noticed is the packaging has slightly changed, but i think i actually prefer this packaging and logo to the other collection. I can't wait to get the limited edition Christmas gloss and of course, i shall review that when i receive it. I have extended my giveaway till Thursday, so don't forget to enter if your in the UK and want to win some Rose Gold brushes! Thank you for reading and lots of christmas love!
