Mac Neutral Palette (ish) & Kooky Christmas Baubles ...

Hello Lovelies,
I haven't done a post in what seems like forever. Alas I had no working camera. However, I have acquired a brand spanking new, wonderfully gorgeously delightful camera very recently and my amazing parents have let me play with my Christmas Prezzy early :D
This may have its disadvantages when it comes to Christmas morning (I may put it back in the box and wrap it up, to open again :')) but i am a very happy bunny at present.

It is the Panasonic FZ38 and my do i love it.
Plus it's going to be sooo much easier to keep up to date with my blog as i feel like i've been neglecting you a little recently.

So without further ado...

I was in Nottingham around 2 months ago visiting the University for an open day. (I really hope i get the grades, its beautiful). 
I had to travel down there from Leeds alone and spend the entire day until I could get the bus back. 
After finishing up with meetings and presentations, I thought what better way to spend my time but to see what shopping the city has to offer. I was not disappointed!!

I only had a little money with me as i wasn't planning on buying anything, but i did pick up something I had been lusting after for a long time...

Behold my MAC Palette.

I LOVE the fact it is in no way fussy. Many people think its too plain or boring but I think it makes it ten times easier to organise into my small collection.

There is one dilemma though...

It only has one Eyeshadow!!! (Woodwinked)
Gorgeous Yet Lonely.

Now this problem was brought to my attention by the lovely Lauren over at Laurens Dressing Room who recently posted about the fact she had owned her palette for several months and had not added anything to it.
Well Lauren, you have inspired me to start increasing my collection ahah!! (any excuse :P)
Any suggestions as to which colours to go for would be great, Im already eyeing up All That Glitters, also check out Lauren's Blog, Its rather spiffy.:D

In other news, the family Christmas Tree was introduced into the household earlier this week and considering I'm feeling very festive I thought i would share it with you. (Im very lucky in my house because high ceiling=bigger tree)

Spot my awesome Shaun The Sheep footstool 8-)
I also wanted to show you the most amazingly adorably wonderful baubles in the whole entire world.

So pretty.

I feel like this is an absolutely mammoth post :/
Ahwell may as well add in a quick OOTD (ish) to make it longer :D

Cardigan - Matalan
Top - Select
Braclet - Birthday Present
Beads - Claires ( ribbon and bow attached my yours truly)

More of a 'Top Half of the Day' really lol.

If I don't manage another post before Christmas I hope you all have a wonderful day and get everything you've dreamed of :)

Merry Christmas

Much Love


  1. Thankyou for the mention Lucy loo :)
    You also have Woodwinked I see.. I think I'm investing in All that Glitters too. Keep me posted with what colours you buy.


  2. You are very welcome :)
    I do indeed, its such a gorgeous colour.

    I agree, its such a cult MAC eyeshadow, there must be something good about it aha.
    I will let you know.


  3. Thanks for your comment.
    You got the MAC palette, so jealous.

  4. Jealous, I got a new camera for Christmas too but I was forced to wrap it, myself, and put it under the tree until the 25th! Bah humbug! My boyf goes to Uni of Nottingham, I've been to visit a few times, it's beautiful, he loves it there!

    I REALLY want a MAC palette but I need some funds first to fill it up! How much are the palettes?
    Love the bow on your beads, so cute!

    Burn the Blonde

  5. Ahha my parents gave in lol, like I said Ill probably regret it!!

    It really is beautiful, I have an offer for BBC to do biochemistry so fingers crossed.

    I think they're around £11.00, get your boyfriend to go into the MAC in Nottingham and buy you one :P aha. I must admit, I didn't think about the whole cost for filling it up when u bought it.~(hence the emptiness) Deary Me:')

    And thankyou!!
