My Favourite Christmas Videos

So as it’s that festive time of year I have been spending lots of time with the family, and less time on my blog! So to make up for last Tuesdays absent post here is a little something sharing some, of my favourite Christmas videos of this year! 
The first one is one that I think has stolen the hearts of so many people and that is John Lewis’ Christmas advert, the hare and the bear. As you all know I love bunny rabbits and this one was just beautiful with the personality of both characters coming out in a matter of seconds.

The next one, another advert is the Baileys nutcracker advert. This uses members of the royal ballet and is a beautiful piece of dancing that echoes Tchaikovsky's nutcracker suite, making a wonderful piece of advertising.  

The last advert that I love is Marks and Spencer’s Christmas advert that merges the story of Alice in wonderland and the wizard of Oz to showcase their winter collections, with an all-star cast featuring the likes of Helena Bonham Carter and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

The next video is a bit different and it a musical version of a ‘round robin’ Christmas card and the carefree nature of the family is really lovely and puts a smile of everyone’s face. Who wouldn’t want those Christmas jammies!

The last video strikes a heartstring and shows that there is good in the world. This story by WestJet showed that even a small gesture of giving means so much to everyone and really made a difference in these passengers’ lives.

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

BarryM Nail Paint: Raspberry

Winter is well and truly here! Winter to me means cosy nights by the fire, Christmas and my favourite of all, warm dark colours. Especially for my nails and today I am going to share my favourite nail colour of the season with you! My nails have finally got back to a healthy state of no flakes, after the summer of wearing too much nail varnish and not taking care of them….I really need to invest in a nail hardener any suggestions?  To celebrate the occasion I used my favourite colour ‘Raspberry’ nail paint by BarryM. 

This dark red is the perfect colour for Christmas parties and all sorts of occasions. Application is smooth and the product dries quickly too. I find the last time on the nails, of these nail paints, varies so much. You can have one application last a week or more, but another chips in a couple of days, so on average it’s an alright last time. The cost of these nail paints are £2.99 each, so nice and cheap (and even cheaper if you wait for a 3 for 2 offer like I did). They are really awesome products!

What’s your favourite BarryM nail paint?

Superdrug Facial Cleansing Wipes: Cucumber

This week’s post is on something that I have been in love with recently and that is the Superdrug facial cleansing wipes: cucumber. These cheap and cheerful wipes did the job perfectly. 

With the pretty green packaging, and at a price of £0.99, they are very attractive. They state they are a 4 in one wipe that; cleanses, removes eye make-up, tones and moisturises.

They smell great, are very light and remove all my make up (except for waterproof mascara which I remove using an eye make-up remover). After use the skin is not left feeling sticky or heavy and you are left feeling fresh and refreshed.

At 99p these are really great and just the wipes that a student on a budget needs.

What are you favourite face wipes?
