Festive faves

So it’s that time of year again. New year, new me. I’m guessing there are a lot of these posts floating around. Although I love that each year gives us the opportunity to re evaluate, reflect and grow I thought I’d veer in a completely different direction and talk about my favourite buys/presents over the Christmas season.

French Connection Velvet Jumpsuit (£65)

Yes I just bought this and yes I’m in love. Being 5 ft and petite, me and jumpsuits have a love/ hate relationship. The length being the main issue. Top tip, if I buy culotte jumpsuits they tend to be full length on me and no one is any the wiser. I bought this jumpsuit in French Connection yesterday and love the lace detailing. Admittedly it’s a bit pricey for a sale piece but over the years I have found french connection pieces are an investment and tend to wear extremely well over the years. French connection also tend to produce classic items as opposed to season styles so are completely wearable year after year.


Huda Beauty New Nude Palette (£56)

I cannot rave about this palette enough. If you follow me I have already mentioned this palette in two previous posts, but I really do love it. Again it’s on the pricey side, but it contains an in built concealer and glitters that you don’t have to go away and get separately.


Ysl False Effect Mascara (£26)

This was a gift over Xmas. I don’t think I would ever outright buy a ysl mascara just because of the price tag and I also think that drug store mascaras perform pretty well. This is amazing. It gives your lashes a thick coating without clotting together and it’s jet black. I’ve heard it dries out quickly so trying to utilise this rapidly.


Anyone who knows me, know I live for Indian fashion. You will very rarely see me in Indian outfits day to day but I love the glamour of them and getting dressed up. With Indian outfits more really is more. I have my best friends and cousins weddings next year so can’t wait to share pictures with you all.



This was a present from my twin sister. I love the color and I love the size. I’m one of those ppl that stores half my life in my wallet and hate travelling light so this is perfect for me.i can’t share the price as I’m not too sure and my sister purchased it from Bicester Outlet Village.
