OOTD #3: Christmas Day

Hi everyone!
Well it's that gap in Christmas day after the excitement of all the dinner and before the good TV starts. My family are all watching a movie on TV so I decided to take the opportunity to post a blog! :o)
Here is what I wore today, Christmas day...
Here is the top, a turquoise chiffon Pussy Bow blouse from New Look, priced €29.99. Similar found here.
I purchased these boots from Asda, found here. Not only are they incredibly season appropriate and stylish, they are made from a lovely soft grey leather-type material. Also, they are comfy and have a very cute leopard print lining!
These silver bracelets (above) are a set from New Look and the gold and red was a Christmas present.

Santa brought me a set of Babyliss Thermo Ceramic rollers and with this (and my first attempt) I was able to achieve BIG bouncy curls. I have struggled for ages to be able to get a good curl to my hair but to no avail. I have tried curling tongs, GHD's and velcro rollers, none of which have worked for me, hopefully this will solve my problem!
My make up consisted of:
Cheeks: Benefit Posie Tint
Lips: MeMeMe Pussy Cat tint
Face: No7 Intelligent Balance Mousse Foundation in Tan
Eyes: L'Oreal Telescopic Mascara and Eyeliner

A very MERRY Christmas to all that celebrate it!
Can't wait to make more blogs in the new year :o)

"These are a few of my Favourite things"

Hi everyone!
I just felt compelled to write this blog this evening whilst contemplating two new loves of mine. The first is my gorgeous new make-up bag. I had been debating purchasing this bag for the longest time but my housemate here at Uni bought it for me for Christmas.
If any of you follow me on Twitter @hannahbanana295 you will see from my background that I love Hello Kitty!
Here is the inside of the bag...
And here is the adorable tag it came with (I love when they make extra effort like that!)
It was purchased from Claire's Accessories, but the brand is Lounge Fly. Their website has a fabulous array of products from Hello Kitty, Barbie and Disney.

Here is my second love love love of the moment, TopShop's Balm from their Make Up collection...
I was a little skeptical at first as I am usually very impartial to my trusty Carmex, but this product has been my absolute must-have for my chapped lips on these cold wintery days! The packaging is super cute and the product is of a lovely consistency. I chose the shade (flavour?) Rose as I am sick of always choosing strawberry and becoming sick of the taste within a couple of days. I would have taken a swatch of it for you but it really just comes out completely clear. Here is the product itself...
On a completely different note I am very much looking forward to getting my copy of Anna Saccone's book: The Style Diet. This snippet from her book has got me excited already, I wholeheartedly encourage you to check her out! She is the You Tube and Blog beauty guru that I most admire, I think she is just fabulous! (Plus she has the cutest puppy ever, except from my Oscar, of course!)
Sorry this has only been a short post but I have studying for a big exam tomorrow to do :o(
Thanks for each and every one of you that takes time to read this blog, it means more to me than you could ever know :o)
Loves xxxxxxxxxxxx
