BLACK FRIDAY DISCOUNTS!

Happy Friday you lovely lot! Now I don't know about you but my inbox and Twitter feed are going crazy for Black Friday deals, I know it's an American 'thing' and it's the first year that it's really been pushed over here as 'black friday' but I say hey, let's just embrace it and get shopping!
However, savvy shopping is needed right now as there are sales on pretty much everything right now so be selective, don't just purchase something because it has 30% off - try to be rational! If you've had your eye on something for a while and it's gone into the sale then I say go for it (thinking 'Happy Christmas to me, love me' style!), remember most of these sales last until Monday so there's no need to panic and do a supermarket sweep of as many brands as you can. 
There's quite a few key pieces for friends and family that I've been lining up for Christmas presents so I'm going to be utilising the sale for buying gifts, I'm sure something for me will accidentally slip into my online basket along the way, but hey ho - it is Christmas! 
Here's a full list of all the retails and sales that I'm aware of - if you know of any others then please feel free to comment below to spread the love... Happy Black Friday shopping y'all!!...

CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE: UNDER £25


Last week I kicked off my Christmas Gift Guide with a new festive collaboration from Coca-Cola & O.P.I (post here in case you missed it!) and this week I'm bringing you my top Christmas gift sets under £25, here goes...

He-Shi Luxury Gift Set - £20: The perfect gift set for any existing self tanner or it would also make a great starter kit for a newbie. In this set you receive a 150ml size Express Liquid Tan and a Tanning Mitt which comes in a pouch (which would make a great travel makeup bag once you've finished using the tan). I'm a huge fan of He-Shi tan - their Gold Foaming Mousse is my absolutely favourite and current go-to tan, this gift set would make a lovely gift and doesn't break the bank at just £20!

Joules Field Fresh Toiletry Bag - £20: A set made for the mums/nans/aunts of the family in my opinion, a beautiful floral two zip toiletry bag containing a 200ml Body Wash, 125ml Body Scrub and 125ml Body Lotion. You can pick this set up from Boots (pssst, they currently have 3 for 2 on their Christmas gifts so be sure to make the most of this offer!).

bare Minerals Kissing Booth Lipgloss Collection - £22.50: The beauty lover set consisting of six Mini Marvelous Moxie Lipglosse's in shades; Big Tease (pinkish nude), Lucky Lady (diamond rose), Sweet Kisser (strawberry sorbet), Major Flirt (sparkling peony), Thrill Seeker (rich lilac), Jezebel (glimmering fuschia). This gift set is great for any makeup lovers, especially if you're not quite sure what shades they wear/suit as this set contains six mini lipglosses - there is something for everyone!

Mark Hill Go Glam Mini Bag - £14: A great gift set of travel sized for the jet-setter in your life, the set contains a 50ml Does it All! Everyday Shampoo, All You'll Ever Need! Everyday Conditioner, Fabulous Finish Hairspray, Quick Fix Dry Shampoo and a compact mirror. I love to plan weekends away and overnight breaks throughout the year and a set like this would be perfect for me as all of the products can be taken as hand luggage, if you know a beauty lover that travels then this is the set for them (a great price too for the five products!).

TIGI Bed Head Twisted Texture Gift Set - £19.95: This set is for the texturised/bed head stylers amongst us - you know the type, they spritz a quick bit of texturising spray in their do and they look like they stumbled off the catwalk *sigh*. This Tigi set contains a 'TIGI Bed Head Small Talk' and 'TIGI Bead Head Hard To Get' which are both volumising/texturising products, a great gift for someone who enjoys experimenting with hair styles!

Soap & Glory Zinging In The Shower Gift Set - £18: I was really shocked to see this gift set was only £18 - I thought it would have been quite a bit more, the box set comes beautifully packaged and is a fair size so it looks like it's worth more. The sweet lime-scented trio in the set consist of; 300ml Sugar Crush Body Buttercream, 250ml Sugar Crush Body Wash and a 50ml Sugar Crush Body Scrub. This set is a sure fire winner for me as the Soap & Glory bath products are of great quality at a great price!

Which gift set will you be hoping to see under your Christmas tree this year?

FINDING YOUR HAPPY PLACE

 Dress: *Miss Selfridge | Boots: *Oasis | Cape: *Miss Selfridge | Bag: *Oasis
As I'm sitting here writing this post (in my Christmas pjs, listening to 2 Pac no less) I feel really content with life right now, I want to start writing more lifestyle posts and reaching out to more of you from now on. I have had some things thrown at me in life that I want to open with you all and talk about, because even if it helps just one of you then I'm doing something right.
Life isn't perfect, when is it? But It's time to focus on the positives - no matter how small, and if we can take the time to do this once a day to make ourselves or someone else smile then it was worth it. I worry about work, about money, about what I'm doing with my life but on the flip side I have an incredible boyfriend, family and friends that are hear to support me, to pick me up when my plan didn't quite work out or to laugh until we cry, and for that I am truly grateful. 
I feel like we spend too much time being hard on ourselves because we're not doing as well as the next person, but remember this; you are you, not them, so comparing yourself to someone else is a pointless activity. Of course, we will always have personal life goals and places we see ourselves going and dreams are what keep us thriving to always do better so never let them go, just understand that sometimes things don't happen as quickly as we'd like or other aspects get in the way, and that's life.
Lately, I've been taking some time out to remember what truly makes me happy and finding time for myself. When I was shooting these outfits with my aunt, (it was only in my local park) but I took a moment to look around and appreciate the world around us, we take it for granted sometimes and forget to treasure it's beauty. I absolutely love Autumn and Christmas - to me it really is the most wonderful time of the year, going for strolls on a crisp autumn day, those dreamy red cup hot chocolates, candle lit bubble baths and cherishing loved ones at Christmas; for me these are my happy places where I take a moment to smile and be thankful for everything I have.
Take time to find your happy place today and to find a reason to smile for no reason!

CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE: OPI X COCA-COLA


Everyone loves Coca-Cola? Sure. Everyone loves O.P.I? Of course! Here's what happens when a multi billion pound drinks company collaborates with the coolest high street nail brand... the cutest Christmas gift sets! I though I'd kick off my Christmas Gift Guide (there's plenty more to come, believe me!) with the sweetest and most iconic gift sets of the season... the holidays are coming after all!

What to expect from the O.P.I x Coca Cola gift sets...

'Coca Cola - Icons of Style Trio Pack' - £23.00

1 x 15ml Coca-Cola Red
1 x 15ml Turn On the Haute Light
1 x 15ml A Grape Affair

 'Bearest of Them All' - £11.95

Bearest of Them All has a special limited-edition nail lacquer which contains a happy mix of white hearts swirling
in a blizzard of red and white glitter. Promotion features a bottle of Bearest of Them All hugged by a plush polar bear ornament.

I have to say my favourite set is probably the  'Bearest of Them All' - even though the trio pack is packaged really nicely and has three great colours, I just can't resist the cute polar bear and limited edition polish which is possibly the most perfect Christmas day polish that I've ever seen?!

Will you be picking up either set for yourself or a loved one this Christmas?

WEDNESDAY WISHLIST: FOREVER 21

Coat | Jumper | Shoes | Jeans | Bag | Ring | Sunglasses

I was browsing on one of my favourite sites earlier; Forever 21 and spotted some incredible pieces so I decided to put together a little Wednesday Wishlist for y'all (apologies in advance to your bank accounts!). I've currently got the coat, shoes and bag in my shopping cart and I have a feeling something bad might happen (or not so bad, depends which way you look at it!).

I've been looking for some strappy, pointed heels for a while to accompany me through the festive season and I genuinely couldn't believe they were only £25! I'd found several pairs that I loved, one from Steve Madden and another pair from Reiss and I was almost biting the bullet to dig deep in my pockets and splash out but it seems Forever 21 have come to the rescue and saved my money just in time! Also, when I laid eyes on this bag I couldn't quite believe how perfect it was - and a cracking dupe for the Chanel Boy bag, at an absolute fraction of the price for just £17, I have to right?

Spot anything in this wishlist that you love?

ROB'S TAKEOVER: A DAY IN THE LIFE OF

Top: *Zoo York | Jeans: Topman | Trainers: *K Swiss | Hat: *Hype Clothing | Jumper: *Zoo York

Alright guys and girls, I'm Rob - if you don't know already I'm Hayley's other half (or better half haha!) and a tattoo artist from Essex. I work in Southend at Low Tide Tattoo Studio and I thought I'd give you a little window into my world. On an average day you'll find me at the shop, inflicting pain and creating art on willing customers. I love my job and wouldn't want to change it for the world, I've been lucky enough to meet some really cool people along the way, made some great friends and it has opened many doors for me. 

Contrary to most peoples beliefs it's not exactly a rock star lifestyle, if anything it's quite a modest, humble existence as in most art forms it's more to do with the love of the work than the money it makes.   I'm lucky enough to know how good I've got it as I've not always been a tattooist, I once was an electrician which was fine but not where my passion lied so I decided to chase the dream and it was the best thing I ever did! 

As a part of this takeover, you'll be seeing me again in the near future where I'll be letting you guys know what I've been up to... so, until next time - take care!
