Stocking Stuffers For Beauty Lovers

Are you looking for stocking fillers for someone that loves their beauty? I have it covered. I've found a few little goodies which would make the perfect stocking contents for any beauty fan. Don't forget to add the chocolate coins!

Everyone loves a lip balm, don't they? These super cute Jelly Belly Lip Balms* make great little gifts. There are a range of flavours to choose from (my fave is Coconut!). These super cute lip balms are available in store at Claires. Jelly Belly also stock some pretty cute little gift sets too such as this Merry Kissmas Set, which would be a lovely little gift to open on Christmas Morning.
If you know a girl who loves their contour and highlight, you can't really go wrong with the Sleek Strobing Souffle*. Designed to add a gorgeous glow to the complexion, this is perfect for parties and nights out. This new product from Sleek's Rockstars Collection is one you don't want to miss out on.
I always carry a little mirror in my handbag for lipstick touch ups, and I think this Cath Kidston Pocket Mirror in the Rose Paisley print makes a great little gift for pretty much any girly girl really. It is both useful and super pretty!
I'm a big fan of Lush's Christmas goodies, but only recently discovered this amazing product which is the Lush Buche De Noel Fresh Cleanser. The scent is a real treat, not to mention it being an amazing cleanser which brightens and hydrates the skin. I think this would make a great gift for someone that enjoys their skincare, or maybe someone wanting to try a fresh cleanser for the first time, as this is a great product to introduce someone to fresh skincare.
I picked up these PS PRO Premium False Nails in the White Aurora Design from Primark for my Sisters stocking. This design is so pretty and perfect for Christmas festivities, and they only cost £3!

My Latest Lust List

It has been over a Week now since I last blogged and I already feel so behind and out of the loop. I've been finding it difficult keeping up with blogging just recently, but I reminded myself blogging is a pastime for me and I should enjoy writing and not feel like I have to put a post out just for the sake of it. So that is what I'm doing :) I'm back today with a good old favourite of mine; a wishlist. I'm currently trying to stick to a spending ban (if you follow me on Twitter you will know I am failing miserably) but that doesn't stop me from lusting over pretty things! With the run up to Christmas in full flow now, I really don't have the extra pennies to keep treating myself, so I've popped them onto this list here, so that I can come back here in a Month or so and treat myself to something special off my list.
What are you lusting after this Month?

The Best Lashes and Nails for a Natural Look

Impress Nails

When it comes to false nails and lashes, I'm definitely no pro at application but I do love having long eyelashes and pretty nails, so it is an ongoing progress for me to achieve it. One of my favourite pamper things to do is to get acrylic nails put on at a salon, but this isn't always an option as it can be a little bit pricey if you have your nails done often, which isn't really something I can commit to; so buying false nails to put on myself at home is a much more affordable way of doing things for me. I'm pretty rubbish when it comes to nail glue and all the rest of it, so I do tend to reach for stick on nails like these Impress Nails. I love these as they stay on for a reasonable amount of time; which for me is usually about a Week or so. They are so easy to apply and come with a little nail file too and lots of extra nails in-case one does fling off. I personally love a simple manicure look, however Impress nails are available in tonnes of pretty designs and colours. I think they are great for every day or for a special event. They last well and look professional. I like this style as they are not over the top and not too long which makes them ideal for work and day to day.
The Kiss Acrylic French Nails are just as good, they come with a really good nail glue and are easy and quick to apply onto your own nails. I think these last really well for a reasonable price, I would definitely recommend these as they are a great alternative to going to a salon.

To perfect my manicure I do tend to find manicure sticks useful, my cuticles aren't in the best condition so these Kiss manicure sticks are an essential for me.

I have really straight and short eyelashes, so if I am going somewhere special false lashes are always a good idea for me. I tend to stick with individual lashes as I feel they don't look too over the top, I have been wearing the Kiss Haute Couture Trio Lashes recently which are so easy to apply and they stay on well too. 
Although I prefer individual lashes, I have tried this pair of lashes recently from Kiss in the style 'Hot'. They are very natural and have a tapered end to the lash. I have found these much easier to apply onto my lashes compared to other false lashes I have tried before. The glue included in the pack is also quite good. They feel really light and not too heavy, which is something I tend to find I struggle with when wearing lashes.

What lashes and nails do you recommend? Have you tried these before?
Impress Nails and Kiss Lashes and Nails are available at ASDA and Boots.
