Secret Santa & Stocking Filler Finds Under £10

Spotted my top Xmas picks yet? If not - why not have a look... here!

I LOVE buying stocking fillers and little secret santa type gifts - the more things to wrap up for people the better (although I do hate wrapping. I'm bloomin' awful at it!).

Is it time to start panic buying? Yup... it probably is!
So if you're in need of some ideas for small additional presents or a cheeky little stocking fillers check out the below for some fabulous bits and bobs all priced £10 or under!!!
(Side note.... I'm not too sure how these photos have come out so yellow *cries*)
Burt's Bees are always on top when it comes to cute Christmas gifting! The 'A Bit Of Burt's Bees'* gift sets are priced at just £5.99 and include a natural lipbalm alongside a hand treat such as cuticle cream or hand salve! These are perfect at-desk beauty bits for any hand working lady (or man!) in your life! 
For something a little more luxury why not try Burt's Bees Naturally Nourishing Vanilla Bean Gift Set* (£9.99). A moisturising dynamic duo gift set - featuring Burt's Bees Ultimate Care Hand Cream and 100% natural Vanilla Bean Lip Balm these are the perfect naturally nourishing festive season duo - who's doesn't need hand cream at this time of year!
This brand is perfect for all ages - and they smell amazing! So if you're struggling to find something for that choosy aunt or has-everything Granny Burt's Bees have the perfect pick me ups for bargain prices!
Nails, nails, nails! 
Leighton Denny are nail experts and for only £10 you can grab 2 of their best selling shades! A Little Piece Of Me* duos come in a gorgeous little hanging box filled with 2 x 5ml polishes -  Kiss Me Quick & I Love Juicy, Twinkle Twinkle & Easy Peel Base Coat or Best Seller & Double Up Base and Top CoatWhat a perfect little stocking filler these are!
When it comes to higher end beauty sometimes there isn't a lot you can get for under £10 but I managed to find a few little gems!
First up - Percy & Reed's Little Luxury Big, Bold & Beautiful Dry Instant Volumising Spray* - now this is the PERFECT time of year to be trying this out! With all those Christmas and New Year's celebrations our hair needs a bit of wow and this amazing, non-sticky, dry instant volumising spray plumps up your hair in a flash! For only £6 this is the perfect little handbag hair saviour - and a great way to try out a new product without buying the full size!
Next up... just the GREATEST primer in the world! I bloody love that Benefit do these smaller sizes of their products - it means that even when I'm on a budget I can snap my favourites up .... and just use them when vitally needed! The POREfessional is just fantastic, the best primer I have ever used and this 8ml tube is an amazing way to introduce a friend of family member to a product I am obsessed with without breaking the bank. Heads up ...you can buy this from Boots online and get it delivered to your nearest store for FREE for the next day, so if you're running out of time - all is not lost!
Another product you can order on the awesome Boots service (#notanad) is Soap & Glory's Khol-Eyed gift set*! Another gift knocked out of the park by our favourite pink brand - this amazing kalidoscope packaging is actually filled with three gorgeous khol eyeliners -Smoulder, Foil In Love and What A Night! Seeing as these liners usually retail at £5 each - for £10 you're getting a bargain!
It wouldn't be Christmas without FOOD!
December is the time of year where anything goes and calories don't count.... right? I mean - when else would you have chocolate for breakfast every single day?
Shortbread and mincepies.... it doesn't get more Christmassy than that (unless we're talking turkey and brussel sprouts!)
Walkers, yet again, have released a gorgeously festive with prices ranging from £1.25 to £28!  The team were kind enough to send me a range of Christmas gifts all under £10 for me to test out and put my seal of approval on and I have to say, they did not disappoint!
These shortbreads and mince pies are simply DELICIOUS (there are a few missing from the image above... including mini mince pies - these are adorable and perfect for kids!)
These gorgeous tins, exciting flavours and fun shaped treats make lovely presents for families, aunties/uncles, grandparents without breaking the bank! Treat someone to something they may treat themselves too! You can buy them from Walkers and Boots!
A few bedside table essentials now!
I am obsessed with coconut and I know a lot of you must be too so this next beauty buy will come at no surprise to you all!
Lucky Cloud's Coconut Lip Butter* has been my go-to balm throughout these past fewc colder weeks - I HAVE to pop some on before bed so it basically lives on my bedside table with my other beauty essentials!
At £4 this is slightly more expensive than your usual vaseline but I can hand on heart say it is SO much better and worth those couple of extra £s! Enriched with coconut butter, sweet almond oil, thistle oil, vitamin e oil, cocoa butter and soya wax these lip balms are vegan friendly and smell divine! Plus you don't need alot so the cute little tin they come in will last weeks and weeks! I love being able to introduce friends and family to new brands I've fallen in love with especially as a gift, and this is definitely one I will be shouting about.

Next a fabulous set from Tropic Skincare! As you may have seen in previous posts on here and Instagram I am currently trying out a variety of products from Tropic - including THIS ... Limited Edition So Sleepy Collection*.
I have wanted a set like this for years, but others that I have seen haven't been half as affordable. For £10 you get a 15ml pillow mist and a 5ml temple roll on. Literally amazing for anyone who travels a lot and/or people who would like to test out the products to see if they are for them! I have fallen in love with this set and I'm kind of praying Tropic bring it out in a full size version...
Last but not least.... a few little gifts perfect for your besties! I always think framing a well-loved photo is a lovely little addition to any birthday or Christmas present. I grabbed this frame from Tesco for only around £3 - and you can print photos instantly in Boots from 39p ... cheap and thoughtful, you can't go wrong! (I bloomin' love this snap from one of my best friends wedding earlier this year!)
Purple Ronnie is SUCH a classic (if you are around my age you would have grown up with it) - this Best Friend Forever book is full of fun quotes and pictures at only £5.99 is a cute thoughtful addition to any stocking!

Well there you have it .... stop reading my blog and get shopping you don't have long!

This however is not something to put on my face or body... obviously - this is Tropic Skincare's first ever candle - SIGNATURE* (£40).
This candle is made with 100% nautral soy wax and is inspired by the brands signature scents. The smell to me is so relaxing but also zesty and uplifting - it's the sort of product I can be imagine to be burnt whilst enjoying a nice refreshing facial.

Current Skincare Favourites | Winter 2016


Winter plays havoc with my skin, so now is the best time for trying out new skincare products!
Over the last couple of months I have slightly switched up my skincare routine and have been loving using some new finds along with some old favourites that are back in my life!

Antipodes Manuka Honey Day Cream*
I've never been one for day creams, I've always worried they make they skin look greasy and my make-up never seems to sit as well, but when I was sent this a few weeks ago I thought it has to be worth a go.
I have heard so much about the Antipodes brand but never actually tried anything so I was really looking forward to getting my hands on it and trying it out. I have used this- every.single.day. since receiving it!
Firstly, I am in love with the scent, anything honey scented and I'm a fan, even that old lady royal jelly stuff in Boots, I loves it! This is such a rich cream one on the skin feels so ! Once I've popped it on I leave it around 5 minutes to sink in after this my skin feels matte and ready for any make-up I want to throw at it!


Antonia Burrell Forest Dew
My holy grail for no make-up days..... which now I work at home most of the time seem to be very frequent! I got this way back before the Summer and seriously have fallen in love over these last few months.
Just 6 pumps and some relaxing massaging into the skin later and my skin looks hydrated, more even and in the mornings I look slightly more human #bonus! This stuff is also meant to be great for reducing wrinkles so I think it's about time I started using it everyday.... I need to get rid of those horrible lines that seem to be taking over my face!

Liz Earle Skin Tonic
I couldn't even tell you how many years I've been using this for now but it is a total favourite for life! I use this every morning and every night after cleansing to refresh my face and give it that squeaky clean feeling and I can tell you now if my bottle runs out I tend to see the difference in my skin almost immediately... I'm praying this is never discontinued!


Tropic Super Greens Nutrient Boost Serum*
Last but not least is the newest skincare product to hit my ever-growing beauty shelves!
Topic Skincare is a new brand to me, I have actually been trying out quite a few of their products over the last week or so (which I'm sure you will hear about soon!).
I don't think I've ever meant 'a little goes a long way' as much as I do with this serum!
The bottle comes with a pipette dispenser and with just 2 or 3 drops I have more than enough product to cover my (huge) face! I'm actually curious as to how long this will last me and I feel like it will last years.
The serum has such lovely fresh and 'green' scent... not planty but you can tell it's natural! It's really lightweight and although sometimes it feels like you have loads of product on your face it doesn't take long for it to all sink in! I love using this as an overnight treatment - my skin always looks that little bit brighter and awake in the mornings, which is something I seriously need this time of year!

5 Ways To Make Your Blog & Social Channels Easier For PR Companies

As most of you will already know I work in PR and social media (and LOVE it),  and I also, obviously, run this blog! It's so fun being both sides of the e-mails and I really enjoy interacting with fellow bloggers as well as fellow PR companies!
In my time within this industry I have talked to many fellow bloggers (and yes they are all total babes)!
When it comes to contacting and organising bloggers, I have noticed there can be a few things that hinder a company or brand getting the information they need so I thought why not write out a few TOP things for you guys to ensure you are including all the information that's needed!
Check out these 5 EASY bits and bobs below.....

Tell Us Your Name
Yes, you would think this would be a total given, but yet there are still blogs out there where there is actually no indication at all of what the writers name is.
 I hate having to write "Hi there" in my e-mails and one of my personal pet hates is getting e-mailed "Dear ayellowbrickblog".
I mean fair enough if you want to keep anonymous or not use your real name, but make sure there is something that we can call you by! I have been on Blogs, Twitters, Instagrams and more of the same person and still have no clue what their name is or what to call them!

Social Media - the kings of the internet
It is always fabulous to have your social media channels in plain sight on your blog and even better if your followings for each are showing! Being able to find all your platforms in one place is a life saver.... believe me!
(Oh and for the love of God... get them to open in a new tab :)

UK? North, South, East, West?
Now this one is handy for event invites!
If PR companies are looking for bloggers in a certain area it's great for them to be able to see if you are close enough or not!  I'm not saying give up your street name, postcode or even town but just the area you live in makes it so much easier for PR companies to send you relevant e-mails that may be of interest to you - Manchester, London, North West, South East, Isle Of Wight....  it's always good to know - even if it's just on your Twitter or Instagram!

Contacting YOU
It's all well and good finding your blog and loving your content - but if you want to be involved in PR opportunities, having your e-mail address prominent on your blog/social is essential.
Having a 'Contact Me' section is always perfect.... one where you have a contactable e-mail address too not a form to fill out ;)
Including it in your social media bios is also perfect - it makes life ALOT easier and saves so much time.

Searching...
Having a search option within your blog is also a fantastic addition and useful tool for people looking to work with you. It gives them access to be able to find any relevant content you may have created previously.

These may all seem SO super obvious but you may be surprised to know I sit there weekly looking at blogs unable to find names, e-mail address or even if they have a Twitter or not!
Do let me know if you'd like any other PR themed posts, or maybe if you have any questions at all!

Lush Christmas Sugar Plum Fairy Lip Scrub

Tick tock, tick tock.... Christmas is coming!
So, of course... my eyes are currently drawn to anything Christmas related, Christmas scented or Christmas themed.... look - I just like Christmas okay!
Now I'm going to start off by break all the blogging rules right now - brace yourselves....
I haven't really tried out many of  Lush products  - there I said it... I'm sorry beauty blogging world!

I bought the Bubblegum lip scrub last year and fell in LOVE but that's pretty much it.... so as soon as I saw that there were Christmas edition scrubs out I was in there like swimwear!
I struggled to choose between the two festive newbies but in the end went for Sugar Plum Fairy, that pretty little pot you can see above!
Lip scrubs are THE perfect product for winter. Every year I seem to attract get dry, sore and flaky lips... #eww #turnoff - so having a scrub has become a vital part of my beauty routine!
With this I just pop a bit on my finger and rub it in circular motions around my lips, before removing it with a tissue or cotton pad, you can lick it off but I'm not a fan of doing that! (Sometimes I even just rub my lips together with it on... it's as easy as that!)
This makes the lips smoother and gets rid of any nasty unwanted dead skin - this also helps to create the perfect base for your lip products.... which, if you're using a matte lip is essential! 

The scent to the Sugar Plum Fairy lip scrub is super sweet (my favourite kinda product) and fruity - so yummy!
I highly recommend the lip scrubs from Lush, I LOVE that they keep adding new flavours too try out!

Let me know your top picks from Lush, I feel like I NEED to explore the world of fresh handmade cosmetics a little more!

October Favourites 2016

What's that? A favourites post? Yup, bonjour! Slightly later than planned but hey-ho it's here.... let's just ignore the fact it's mid-November!
Now... sit down, grab a cup of rosy lee and listen to me ramble on to what I have been loving over the past month!
First up .... some Rosie For Autograph goodies! Both the original Eau de Parfum from Rosie and the large candle of the same beautiful floral scent have become my go-tos for October/November - I am in love.
A strong scent with amazing staying power - I have been getting so many compliments on my everyday scent recently with a few shocks when I say what it is.... nope not Chanel or Dior!
I still can't get over how much of a bargain this range is with the 30ml scent at £14 and the candle only £15 these are definitely a duo I will be re-purchasing! I cannot get enough of this range.... like, seriously - if you haven't tried out any of the cosmetics or fragrances yet... do it!

Next up - the Moroccanoil Treatment. I can easily say this is hands down the best hair oil I've ever tried and I'm not quite sure how I managed to live without it for so long to be quite honest with you all!
 After months of living off cheaper versions I decided to invest once more in my favourite little hair treat and two bottles down I'm not regretting it.
These are around £13 fo r a 30ml .... which made sound alot but this stuff lasts me at least a month/6 weeks per bottle, and I use a fair bit of it each time I wash my hair - I always worry when it start to run low... definitely something for my Christmas list!

Make-up now and .... ermahgerd, this duo from Charlotte Tilbury is just heaven.
If you are looking for some make-up to invest in I cannot receommend Charlotte Tilbury's Filmstar Bronze & Glow enough. This bronzer and highlight duo is a MUST in my everyday routine now - from sitting in the office in a hoodie to going on a night out with the girls, I use this palette.
I use the bronze to contour and give me a bit of colour and the highlight to give me a subtle gorgeous glow - I cannot get enough of this, I will 100% be repurchasing when the time comes (even with it's hefty price tag!).

Also on the cosmetic train, another liquid lipstick that's been added to my every growing collection. Since trying out Soft Spoken by NYX months ago (and talking about it non-stop) I knew it was about time I invested in another. Well, I didn't go crazy and yes I just went for anothe nude, but you can really never have too many nude lippys can you?!

This time I went for NYX Liquid Suede Lipstick in Sandstorm - basically a liquid lipstick version of Velvet Teddy from MAC and I have been reaching for this nearly everyday! Nudes are my go-to's for everyday, I jsut find them so easy and tend not have have to re-apply them every hour like other shades like red that you really have to commit too! Compared to other liquid lipsticks on the market too these are a steal and the quality is amazing.

Non-beauty favourites now and well... I have a few.
Of course HAMILTON is still my life. I cannot get enough and don't think I ever will. The thought of being able to finally see it live next year literally makes me want to burst into tears, I mean even seeing the theatre front recently had me go into meltdown/fangirl/emotional crying mode!
I have had Lady Gaga - Joanne on ALOT, Gaga is definitley back and better than ever on the music front, so many amazing songs on this album.

I've been watching a lot of Black Mirror, which has had me baffled, traumatized , shocked and overthinking everything every single episode. Some of them are just total genius and some of them are just totally f***ed up, but they always get you thinking! (It reminds me a little of Inside No9.... so if you have enjoyed that then give it a go!)

The Vampire Diaires is back which is awesome, kind of sad that it's the last season but at the same time probably is about time!
Total Bellas of course has been my favourite song of the moment - I love Nikki & Brie a little TOO much.... I'm so glad that Total Divas starts back soon aswell.... can someone help me train to be a wrestler please?

What have been your go-to products, books, TV shows etc this past month or so?! Gimme ALL the recommendations you can!

KSNY x Minnie Mouse Card Case

Sometimes you've just got to treat yourself.... and by sometimes I mean, most of the time!

To be fair I had been looking at this little cutie for a while, it was only when I spotted a 20% off code and I was in a grumpy splurgey mood the other week that I decided it would be a great time to place the order! (Sorry Mum...)

I have always loved the look of Kate Spade stuff - from the bags to the jewellery to the stationary, all so cute right? 
So when I heard about the Minnie Mouse collection I literally thought  - 'shut the front door I need it all.' (like I do when any brand brings out a Disney collection of some kind!)
Now.... I'm not in a position to buy a £300 bag on a whim (as much as I would love too) but treating myself to a little snippet of the collection is allowed!
 I've wanted a simple card holder for a while now - I hate carrying my huge Ted Baker purse to the gym and on nights out so this looked like the perfect little case the carry the essentials in..... and it is!
This is alot more than my usual Primark budget but I thought it was an investment.... right? It's so cute! 

Totally perfect for what I wanted it for and perfect for Orlando next year! Last time I went I had to buy a little card holder because my purses were just rubbish - you have hardly any change because there because you get so many $1 bills so this will be just right!
The Minnie Mouse collection is available at Kate Spade UK - here.

Rosie For Autograph Insta Glow Matte Bronzer Review

Make-up review time and how god damn pretty is this!
A few weeks ago now I ventured into a place I don't tend to visit often, good old Marks & Spencer's!
I'm not a regular visitor as I don't live super close to a store but when I do go in there are always two aisles I head straight for.... the food (hello chocolate covered cookie dough) and the make-up!

I first stumbled across the Rosie For Autograph range earlier this year and fell head over heels for the range and everything I tried from it.
The packaging, the quality, the colours - I was hooked... so it was inevitable that I would end up walking away with a bag full of goodies.... opps!
Yes, not only did I just HAVE to have this gorgeous bronzer (yes we'll get to it I promise) but I also purchased a fragrance and the candle from the range (but we'll get to those later this month!).
I am a sucker for any highlighting product. Literally anything with a bit of a shimmer or a glow I'm there, I will throw my money without a second thought and it to my ever-growing collection of pretty powders, creams and sticks!
As soon as I saw the Insta-Glow Matte Bronzer from the Rosie collection I was sold - it didn't have a price on it and I didn't care, I was buying it.

This is gorgeous marbleized bronzer and highlighter duo in a super pretty floral design compact (I seriously didn't want to use this at first!). It helps to create a sheer natural glow and, for me, is the perfect finishing touch to my everyday make-up.
I have to say though I'm not too sure why this has the word 'matte' in it and it is super shimmery.... which I love!
I had a Fake Bake bronzing brick which I used for years and years and since that ran out (and was discontinued #boo!) I haven't found anything half as good, until now - I'm obsessed with this!!!

Priced at £20 I would happily buy this over and over.... although I don't think that's going to be necessary as powders seriously last me forever, I don't know how I do it!

OOTN : Suede & Leather

Well.... it has been a long, long while since I did any form of outfit post.... or any post in which you actually SEE me but  hello, here I am!

Its not often that I get dressed up and go 'out out' so I thought I'd grab a shot for the blog while I had bothered to get out of my pyjamas on a Saturday night!


Hair
Nope... I haven't found the aid to magically grow my lob out in a matter of minutes but ... I have got some fabulous new extensions!
The lovely people at Lush Hair Extensions recently sent me some gorgeous Ultimate Full Head Extensions which I have been loving! At only 16" they are just what I wanted for my currently growing lob to give it a little more length and volume - having longer hair always makes me feel a little more glamorous on a night out, it's nice to be able to do something different with it!

Body
This top ('body') is from boohoo and I LOVE it! At only £12 it's perfect for easy day-to-day wear with jeans and boots/trainers but can be glammed up with a skirt or shorts for a fun night out! I'm seriously obessed with Boohoo at the moment.... as you will notice!

Skirt
I LOVE a bit of leather.... and yes this isn't actually leather but I love leather-look fashion - I felt very rock-chickesque with this and my boots #rockandroll! (I seriously want the pink version of this aswell!!!)

Bag
A total bargain at £14 - with a longer strap included this is definitley going to be my go-to 'popping out' bag - it's a great size AND has two different zip compartments!

Boots
My babies! I was SO excited to finally be able to wear these beauty from InTheStyle - so cute and perfect for this season, I know I'm going to get SO much wear out of these!

Yes, it's time to reach for the gloves, over-do it with the knitwear and purchase 132 pairs of black boots that are ever so slightly different from one another... because, why not?

I LOVE Autumn and Winter - mainly due to the fashion, I love wrapping up in a million layers and popping on a favourite pair of boots!

Fashion this year is on point so I thought I'd share with you lovely lot the bits I'm ordering, popping into my saved items/wishlist and pretty much just drooling over! #prayformybankaccount

NEW Cocoa Brown Kind Shampoo & Conditioner

When Cocoa Brown annouced their new haircare range my first thoughts were.... what? wait? tan for your hair?! But I'm blonde!
Of course... I was having a total mad moment - obviously they have just branched out and added haircare to their already fabulous range!

So... Kind shampoo and conditioner, hello new friends! This duo is specially formulated for sensitive skin and scalps, which is perfect for me and my new bleached head hair!

Free from parabens (yay) and pH neutral (double yay) - which means not only are these fine to use daily but it also means this stuff won't interfere your fake tan, helping your glow last that bit longer! 
Since I've been back to my gym classes I've been washing my hair a lot more so I'm pleased these are suitable for that!

I've used these a few times now and have been so, so pleasantly surprised.
The products smell lovely (and no smell of biscuits anywhere!) with cleansing agents such as coconut oil and fruit sugars they have a lovely fruity, fresh scent.

The part I am most impressed with is the pricing - I pictured these being around £6.99 each.... but online they are just £2.65!
Cheaper than Herbal Essences and Garnier half the time - these are a total bargain and I hope they are going out to all Superdrug's to make it easy for everyone to get their hands on them.

High Five Cocoa Brown - another fabulous product!
