Top 12 products of 2012..

So as 2012 is drawing to a close I thought this was a great one to share with you. I'm going to talk about my top 12 products of 2012. I have seen this post being done by a lot of bloggers recently and I love reading them so I'm going to do my own.

001- Soap & Glory Clean on me shower gel - I actually bought this product on a whim, didn't know much about it but it smelt gorgeous so I went for the full size straight away! Boy am I glad I did. I have spoken about this in previous favourite posts so I'm not going to ramble on but I will just quickly say, It lathers up really well and leaves your body feeling so smooth and the smell stays on your body though out the day!

002- Clean&Clear Deep action cream wash- I haven't been using this through out the whole year. Probably only a couple of months now but I switched to this as I didn't like my previous face wash. Again I actually hadn't herd much about this product but I knew Clean&Clear were a raved about brand so I just gave it ago. At the moment it is one of the best face washes I have used but I'm looking forward to trying different ones in 2013.

003- Soap&Glory Hand food- Some people say they don't like the smell of hand food but I personally love it! I love the fact it actually moisturises my hand too and doesn't just leave them feeling greasy.

004- Superdrug face masks - These are essentials for me. I use the quite a bit, I try to use one at least once a week and I feel they do wonders for my skin. I have also recommended these to people and they have come back saying they love them too!

005- MUA Undressed palette - Now I, like most bloggers started with the Heaven&earth palette from MUA but then they came out with this beauty! I actually haven't used the heaven&earth palette since. People say this is comparable to the Naked palette from Urban Decay but I don't own that so I cant say. I am happy with this though so I wont be rushing out to buying either of the Naked palettes any time soon.

006- Natural Collection blusher ( Pink Cloud) - This was actually recommended to me by quite a few bloggers and I'd like to say thanks to those people that did because this has to now be one of my most worn blushers this year.

007- Bourjois Healthy mix foundation - This product has been really hyped up in the 'blogging world' so it kind of made me want to try it. I herd it was great for dry skin too! I love the way this makes my skin look and the coverage is great! I couldn't see myself using  another foundation any time soon.

008- Miss sporty Dr Balm (honey moon) - I got this for free when i purchased something else from Miss sporty but I've used this a lot the last couple of months. It's the perfect lip colour if your too scared to wear a full on dark lip. It's really moisturising as well so that's always a plus.

009- Benefit Bad Gal Lash mascara - I'm pretty sure you guys know how much I love this mascara so I'm not going to say much. If your interested you can see my full review here.

010- Natural Collection Waterguard mascara - Thought this year this has been one of my go to mascaras! I wasn't expecting much when I first bought it but I needed a new waterproof mascara as I always like to have one in my collection. This is actually waterproof but at the same time comes off really easily when you use and make up remover! Everything I look for in a waterproof mascara. It also leave my lashes looking great!

011- John Frieda Frizz-ease Serum - This is the one and only  hair product I've really loved this year. I started using it in the summer and have used it pretty much every time I've washed my hair since. When I don't use this I do notice that my hair looks a lot more frizzier.

012 - Models own nail polishes - Just models own nail polishes in general! They are so good and I get why every one loves them! I'm actually now building up quite a collection. They are now my go to brand for nail polish! They have such a great colour selection as well. I find for most colours you only need one coat and they dry really quickly and don't chip easily either.

So that is the 12 products that have stood out to me and I have loved through out 2012. Let me know what you think of these products and also if you've done this post yourself leave the link in the comments so I can have a read!

I'd also quickly like to say a huge thank you for all your support this year. I know I'm not one of the most successful bloggers and I'm not planning to be but if it wasn't for you guys that read my blog and suggest posts I wouldn't be doing this. Hope you all have a happy new year and continue to stick with me.

simple but easy festive nails

A simple and easy way to make your nails look festive. I think it looks really festive and its really easy to do! Just chose your base colour. I went for an icey blue because I wanted that winter wonderland effect. Then i just added two different glitters because I couldnt choose just one! So I used a fine silver glitter and then a silver glitter with big bits of blue and purple glitter in to make it look that bit more festive. You could always use a red  base and use a gold glitter so that they look more christmasy.  Let me know what you think and will you being try this instead of doing nail art?

Topshop Wishlist

I don't know about you guys but I often browse the Topshop website and every time I do I find something else I would love to own! Thought I'd share with you a few things that are on my topshop wishlist at the moment. I always find something I like on Topshop but never actually buy it. I've been wanting a pair of Chelsea boots for a while now and after Christmas will be a perfect time for these.

If I don't post again before Christmas I hope you all have a lovely day!
