NEW TO MY WARDROBE

Affordable Christmas Gift Guide

Today's gift guide is one for the more affordable - but still totally great - christmas gifts. I've popped a few favourites of mine in here amongst new launches that beauty lovers would be more than happy to unwrap on Christmas day.

My first heads up for anyone who's struggling for gifts, whatever the budget, is always LUSH. They do gift boxes in all different sizes and prices but you can also buy individuals and make your own DIY gift package for a loved one. 

For YouTube and blog lovers the Estée Lalonde Nail Art Kit is brilliant and the colours are so wearable - it's also perfect for anyone who loves a bit of nail art (obviously). Then there's the Tanya Burr Advent Calendar (or any TB gift set for that matter). Her products are great quality and are at such an affordable price - I'm currently loving opening her advent calendar daily! If you have a YouTube lover who's also a big reader - the Glam Guide by Fleur De Force is a brilliant read and so beautifully presented, your giftee will have their head in this one all Christmas day. 

If you have a little magpie on your present list, the L'Oreal festive nail polishes will always be a winner in my books. They're so heavily laden with glitter that your little magpie should be sufficiently pleased with this one. For an eye shadow/palette fiend I can only recommend the Zooeva Cocoa Blends Palette because it is my absolute favourite and it's so affordable. The quality of the shadows are incredible and it comes wrapped like chocolate, which makes unwrapping it on Christmas day that little more interesting... or disappointing depending on how you look at it.

There are a few more books before I wrap this gift guide up; How to be Parisian, this one is the kind of book you see everywhere - there's a trend for these kinds of books being sold in Urban Outfitters, and I usually find them a little more style over substance, but I do love the way this one is written. Reading it actually inspires me to sit and write myself. Big Magic is one I haven't finished yet, but so many people have recommended as a great read - if you have someone who's working in a creative industry this might fit the bill! And finally for the beauty lovers and beauty newbies alike, Pretty Honest by Sally Hughes is a detailed read on different areas of beauty. From buying the right foundation to getting your brows threaded, she covers everything in perfect detail.

    1. I am here to give testimony of how i got back my husband, we got married for over 9 years and we had two kids. thing were going well with us and we where always happy. until one day my husband started to behave in a way i could not understand, i was very confused by the way he treated me and the kids. later that month he did not come back home again and he called me that he want a divorce, i asked him what have i done wrong to deserve this from him, all he was saying is that he want a divorce that he hate me and do not want to see me again in his life, i was mad and also frustrated do not know what to do,i was sick for more than 2 weeks because of the divorce. i love him so much he was everything to me without him my life is incomplete. i told my sister and she told me to contact a spell caster, i never believe in all this spell casting of a thing. i just want to try if something will come out of it. i contacted traditional spell hospital for the return of my husband to me, they told me that my husband have been taken by another woman, that she cast a spell on him that is why he hate me and also want us to divorce. then they told me that they have to cast a spell on him that will make him return to me and the kids, they casted the spell and after 1 week my husband called me and he told me that i should forgive him, he started to apologize on phone and said that he still live me that he did not know what happen to him that he left me. it was the spell that he casted on him that make him come back to me. my family and i are now happy again. Thank you Dr. Aluta for what you have done for me i would have been nothing today if not for your great spell. i want you my friends who are passing through all this kind of love problem of getting back their husband, wife , or ex boyfriend and girlfriend to contact traditionalspellhospital@gmail.com and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. He cast spells for different purposes

  40. I’m extremely happy that my broken Marriage has been fixed…
    "We recently made up, even though it was difficult. It's been more than a month now, and everything feels like it’s returned to normal. He has begun to treat me better, and it’s been a healing process for both of us. The nightmare that had lasted for almost 2 years before we broke up is finally over. It’s like we fell in love all over again! We’ve both put the past behind us, and are trying to move forward – and for the first time in a long time, the future looks a lot brighter.
    I can’t express in words how grateful I am Dr Unity! It’s like we’ve finally rediscovered those things about each other that made us fall in love in the first place. All of the worrying and stress has simply vanished. Thank you Dr Unity for saving my broken Marriage and brought my husband back to me!".
    Me and my husband are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Unity. If you have any problem contact Dr.Unity now and i guarantee you that he will help you.Email him at: Unityspelltemple@gmail.com ,you can also call him or add him on whats-app: +2348071622464.
