Oliver Bonas Christmas in July


It’s Chriiiiiiiiistmaaaaaaaaas! I know it’s a bit weird looking at Christmas things in the middle of July but it’s totally a thing. Tons of companies have ‘Christmas in July’ where they display all their upcoming festive products on a special press day. I was asked by the lovely ladies at Oliver Bonas to make some biscuit favours for their event last week. They wanted biscuits to match their ombré bauble collection and branded with their alternative logo which you can see here.

I had lots of fun figuring out how to make them – I’d never airbrushed before, but knew this would give the best effect and look most like the baubles. I invested in this airbrush which I think is now one of the best things I’ve bought. It was easy to use with clear instructions. I also used

Let It Jon Snow


Back around April I decided to be really productive with my time and watch the whole of Game of Thrones in a month or so. Everyone had been telling me how amazing it was and I quickly become obsessed. Although getting through all five series was probably not my biggest achievement this year I thought this Christmas I would celebrate my GOT love with some limited edition jumpers. Inspired by this awesome card I picked up in New York I made these ‘Let it Snow’ (get it?!) jumpers to give out to my friends and fellow Jon Snow/Thrones fans. Look at his little face! He looks like he knows nothing…

A La Carte Lipsticks


There’s something very exciting about Christmas parties and getting all dressed up. Choosing what to wear, something festive, maybe overly embellished, slightly on the verge of fancy dress. Debating whether the shoes you wore last year are ok to wear again and hoping they will be a little kinder to you this year. Then actually getting ready, putting make up on while listening to Mariah Carey to get you in the mood. I’m sure the reality is never as good as the getting ready but Christmas parties are fun. So fun. I’m sure there are many that have already had them, still fresh with hangovers and memories of clumsy dancing after too many Christmassy drinks.

If you’ve partied or are yet to party this year I hope you did it wearing this lipstick or kissed someone that was. It’s my all time favourite red. I wear it all year round but like to crack it out most days during the party season. It’s a Cosmetics Al La Carte Lipstick called ‘Vintage’ it lasts for aaaages and

Beyond Retro Christmas Jumpers


I know what you’re thinking. I’ve seen these biscuits before. You would be right. I made similar ones a couple of years ago when we had a ‘Christmas Jumper Party’. I tweeted about them last week and Beyond Retro got in touch about having them at their Christmas Launch Party. I was of course really excited as I love Beyond Retro. I’ve been visiting their shops for ages, especially when I was at Uni in Brighton. They always have the best stuff and I’ve purchased numerous exciting everyday pieces, fancy dress elements, Halloween costumes and my favourite Christmas Jumpers. They have the best
