New Year's Eve Make-Up.

The other day, I shared with you my perfect nail polish picks for New Year's Eve. Despite still not knowing what we'll be doing, I've decided to go for the gold on my fingers and hot pink on my toes, so thought it would be fun to show you what make-up I'll be wearing on the night!

The Edit - NYE Nails.

If you cant wear something sparkly on NYE, when can you? All girls love a bit of glitter, we just like to incorporate it into our looks In different ways. While some attend a NYE bash looking like they wouldn't look out of place on a Christmas tree, others, such as myself, like to be a little more subtle.

NYE Dresses - PromTimes.*

Whether you're staying in with friends or going out, chances are, you like to get dressed up on New Year's Eve. PromTimes offer a great variety of dress for all occassions. In my last post that I did in collaboration with them, I talked about some of the perfect prom dresses, but I have a while to go until that particular occasion, so until then, here's my top picks for NYE. Hope you find some inspiration!

December in Photos.

This is a scheduled post as I am currently probably under a lot of blankets and feeling sorry for myself, having eaten one too many pigs in blankets. I'm not sure when I'll wake up and it's possible that I may sleep through the New Year. Jokes aside, I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and that it was everything you wished for. I'm going to save my Christmas post for some time in January as there are still presents waiting to be exchanged. Instead, I'm going to be sharing a few photos that I've taken throughout the month of December. They may make you want to relive the month all over again.

Went ice-skating. Thought I was going to die.

The Christmas Tag - Blogmas Day 24.

Boo, sob, hiss and all of the inbetween - today is the final day of blogmas. Yes, it's Christmas Eve! I will actually be celebrating Christmas on Boxing Day (I'm devestated) but that doesn't mean the final day of Blogmas has to be any less festive! I'm going to be doing a Christmas Tag!

July - December 2014 Memories - Blogmas Day 23.

Having written my January - June 2014 favourites over two weeks ago, and now that 2014 is officially coming to a close, I think it's time to look back on July - December. This selection of photos are definitely a lot more Summer based, so be warned - you might just miss the warmer months after seeing this!

Mani Monday #14 - Blogmas Day 22.

Are you ready for the final edition of Mani Monday and what's actually final edition of the blog features that I've been doing for the past five months?! Yes, they are all coming to an end! I'm excited to come out with new posts, try different things and new features all ready for 2015! Wow, it feels really weird writing that.

Christmas Gift Guide for Children - Blogmas Day 20.

It probably would have been a good idea to post all of my Christmas Gift Guides during the first half of December, but there are no doubt more than a few of you who are actually yet to buy any Christmas presents. I'll admit, I used to be one of you, but I've had presents picked out since July. Yes, I'm now one of them people... The final edition is a selection of presents for children! I have both a niece and a nephew under the age of 2, but I've tried to include something in there for everyone.

Flashback Friday #13 - Blogmas Day 19.

So, I'm guessing that today is the last edition of Flashback Friday. Well, it is for now. There is a chance that I will be bringing it back in 2015. I'd like to be able to do more features and think this is a fun one to do, so watch this space!

A Gift From Me To You: PicStick* - Blogmas Day 18.

-This was supposed to go up yesterday!-

Knowing that I should be moving out some time this Summer has left me wanting to go shopping. Forget kettles, toasters and other things that I will actually need - I'm all about the decorations! Fairy lights, cushions, mugs and photos. I was recently given nine photos from the lovely people over at PicStick and I'm honestly obsessed! These will be a great edition to my new place.

2014 Favourites - Blogmas Day 17.

2014 has been a year filled with tonnes of great things, so many in fact that I found it impossible to pick just a few items that I've loved throughout the year. I could go on for days (or pages) about the things I've been loving, so I've picked out some categories and will be filling you in on each one. In some cases, I've included two - one high street and one more high end.

Christmas Gift Guide for Partners - Blogmas Day 16.

Number three in my Christmas Gift Guide is for partners. I've included a section for both girlfriends and boyfriends, despite the majority of my readers being girls. I do think the girlfriend one might just give you some ideas for your own Christmas list though! The girlfriend one is definitely a bit more on the pricey side, but I just couldn't help myself.

Mani Monday #13 - Blogmas Day 15.

Nothing says Christmas quite like a bit of red nail varnish with some glitter thrown into the mix, does it?! We are officially in December which means everyone is all about the reds, greens and golds (and the chocolate!). A red nail was an obvious choice for December, and I added the nail polish featured in the previous Mani Monday post onto my fourth finger to make it that bit more festive!

Invaluable Watches* - Blogmas Day 14.

My Christmas list has been stuck up on the fridge for a good two months now, and it is so long that it could probably fill up as much space as the collection of Vogue magazines in Anna Wintour's house. Okay, maybe not that many (I am known to exaggerate) but it's still rather long. The length of it could have something to do with some rather nice looking expensive watches. There are so many different ones to choose from and, as there's not really anywhere to look at lots in one place, I think it's hard to shop for them. Well, it was until I was introduced to Invaluable and their watch selection.

Style Crush Saturday #12 - Blogmas Day 12.

Can you believe we're now almost half way through December?! HELLO, CHRISTMAS. Yes, just in case you couldn't tell, I am very excited for Christmas and it is probably my favourite time of year. Of course, with the middle of December comes my final Style Crush Saturday post. Can you believe how quickly the four months since I started these features have passed?! This is the final SCS but there are few of the other features left so be sure to look out for them. Oh, and I have definitely saved the best 'til last when it comes to this weeks SCS... Enjoy!

PromTimes* - Blogmas Day 12.

Now that I am well on my way to finishing my first term (only two exams and one week to go!), my friends and I all have our minds planted firmly on one thing: graduation. Well, more about what we're going to wear and, thanks to myself and PromTimes*, none of us are short of options.

Sephora Value Sets - Blogmas Day 11.

This post should really be titled "The Best Thing on Earth", but I thought that might be pushing it a bit. Today I'm going to be talking about Sephora's Value Sets. They're basically sets of make-up, brushes, perfume... anything in the world of beauty, for just a fraction of the price. Some have a value of up to $500 dollars, available for just $60. A perfect Christmas gift, right?! Here are my favourite picks...
Make Up For Ever - HD Complexion Starter Kit
$79 (Value: $114)

Christmas Gift Guide for Friends - Blogmas Day 10.

I have quite a few friend groups, so my friends and I don't tend to go all out for Christmas. My friends in England don't even get anything as it would just be too expensive. Saoirse, Alba and I set a budget and then normally three of us will buy the other something. With my friendship group at school, which includes eight of us, it wouldn't make sense to go all out as we'd probably end up in debt. Instead, we do small token presents. Here's what I plan on getting them this year...

November Best Dressed - Blogmas Day 9.

So, I've kind of just realised that this will be my final monthly best dressed post of the year. Can someone please explain to me how there's only three weeks left until 2015, because I do not understand. There weren't that many great looks throughout the month of November if I'm honest, so we're not exactly going out with a bang. There were some great ones but most of the looks I've included today I've liked, but haven't absolutely loved.

Christmas Gift Guide For Siblings - Blogmas Day 8.

Just a few days ago, I did a Christmas Gift Guide for Mums, and now it's time for the next edition - siblings. I have both a brother and a sister so I've hopefully been able to include something for everyone in here. If not, then please leave your suggestions in the comments.

January-June 2014 Memories - Blogmas Day 7.

During the few brief days that I did Blogmas last year, I wrote about my favourite memories from 2013, first from January to June and then from July to December. They were definitely some of my favourite posts to write, as it was nice to look back on the year. This is why I find it so important to document experiences, no matter how small they are. It was nice to go back and find photos from days that I'd completely forgotten about, so it only made sense to do the same thing this year. Here are my favourite memories from January - June 2014.

Winter Essentials - Blogmas Day 6.

I can't believe that I've now done Seasonal Essentials for both Summer and Autumn now! Time really is going by so fast. I love all seasons; when it's Summer, I want Winter and when it's Winter, I want Summer. One of the main reasons I love Winter is obviously Christmas. There's nothing quite like the lead up to it. I doubt I'll ever get sick of it. But enough about that, here's my Winter essentials...

Flashback Friday #12 - Blogmas Day 5.

It's official, this is the penultimate edition of Flashback Friday! Admittedly, I have really enjoyed writing these posts, so this feature might just make a return in 2015 but I guess only time will tell! You do all seem to be enjoying it though, so that's nice.

Christmas Gift Guide For Mums - Blogmas Day 4.

I know a few bloggers/vloggers do this, so I thought I'd also jump on the bandwagon and do a Christmas Gift Guide, to be published throughout December, starting with Mums. Not to toot my own horn or anything, but I'm pretty awesome at buying presents, especially when it comes to my Mam. After all, I'm probably one of very few people in the world to buy their Mam a wheelbarrow for Christmas. I've had this year's presents picked out since about June and ended up picking so many that's there's enough left for next year (and possibly the year after that...). Don't worry, though, there's no wheelbarrows to be seen here.

Christmas List - Blogmas Day 3.

I love everything about Christmas. The decorations, the food, the general spirit of it all and, of course, who can forget the presents? They don't have to be big and expensive, I just love the thought of waking up on Christmas morning and having something to open. Here's some items that are on my Christmas List this year, which may or may not have been written since early November...

Blogmas - Blogmas Day 2.

The title of this blog post is pretty self-explanatory: I've decided to do blogmas! I won't be taking photos or filming my day like those that plan on doing Vlogmas will be doing. Instead, I'll be posting my Christmas list, recipes, gift ideas for specific people and much more up until the 24th of December.
