monsoon candle and diffuser ♥

Monsoon Diffuser* Monsoon Candle*
When it comes to planning new content for Fairytale Kiss, I have already made it my mission to include a new interior section for my blog. I am obsessed with interior design and the day I finally own my own place with Ollie, I will have mentally planned the furniture arrangement already. I can sit on Pinterest and Tumblr for hours looking at bedrooms and living rooms and I love modern and glam items. I am starting my interior blog post slightly earlier this week and I wanted to begin with a few Monsoon products.

instyler glossie brush ♥

If you are in the mood to shop, the boxing day sales are the smart way to save a few pennies. If you haven't seen yesterday's blog post about my sale picks, you can find it here. For today's blog post, I wanted to talk about another boxing day sale pick. I was kindly sent the InStyler Glossie Brush* to test out and I was very curious to see if it would work with my hair type. We all know my hair needs intense heat to stay a particular style and if a styling tool doesn't produce enough heat then frizzy mayhem will occur. The InStyler Glossie brush is designed to straighten your hair as well as leaving it looking smooth and shiny.In true Fairytale Kiss style, I grabbed a sequin dress and began testing the styler out. I personally love the white packaging design of the brush, it looks very sleek. After removing the brush from the box, I simply plugged the styler in and waited for it to heat up. It didn't take long to heat up and after grabbing a hair clip and sectioning my hair, I unclipped the black device and this helped to firmly grip my hair and keep it in place while I ran the styler through each section of hair.
It easily reached my roots and I was impressed that I didn't need to constantly go over my hair. The brush design certainly makes a difference compared to using my flat plated straighteners. I think the InStyler creates a naturally sleek look without looking too flat. It still leaves your hair looking healthy and straight but it doesn't take away any natural shine from your hair. I was really impressed using the styler, it was incredibly easy to control and the four different heat settings means you can really be picky with how much heat you want. The heat settings range from 300°F, 350°F, 400°F and 450°F.
If you really struggle with frizzy hair, this brush will be your lifesaver, I have to always use heat on my hair so I keep the styler at Ollie's so I always have straighteners close by. I absolutely love the design of the brush and it is so simple to use, I do recommend that you gently brush your hair first to make it easier for the heated brush to work. Overall, I think the InStyler Glossie is a dream come true, it is very lightweight so it will fit perfectly in your hand luggage or suitcase. What do you think of the InStyler Glossie brush? Do you struggle with frizzy hair like me? ♥

#ShopList - boxing day sales ♥

Faux leather dress - Missguided
I have a serious case of shopping fever today so I am back with a new #ShopList post. I really struggled to find any good bargains on boxing day but once again the internet has made shopping so much easier. I thought it would be nice to make a big list of my favourite end of year sale picks, from River Island to Missguided - I have tried to include all of my top brands. I picked up this faux leather dress in the Missguided sales a few weeks ago and I am loving the length and floral detailing. I have included this dress in my main shopping picks below.

food time - my itsu gyoza recipe ♥

Hi guys, I am incredibly excited to talk about today’s blog post. We all know I am obsessed with sushi and Japanese food, it is all I ever talk about. I have been a fan of Itsu for years so I was over the moon when they contacted me to partner up for today’s post. I have been feeling pretty sluggish lately and although Christmas is the perfect time to treat yourself, I do find myself craving a simple and basic dinner. Personally, I find it quite refreshing to have a break from the festive menu in my house. When it comes to cooking, I am certainly not a skilled chef and I can be pretty clumsy when it comes to using a kitchen but I was excited to try the Itsu Gyoza range*.

PANDORA christmas event ♥

I don't feel like Fairytale Kiss looks very festive at the moment, I could add some falling snow to the homepage or a Santa emoji on my logo...or I could show you a very magical event which made Christmas arrive extra early for me. I was kindly invited to the PANDORA Christmas event, I think this is one of the most beautiful events that I have ever attended. It was a photographers dream and we all know that PANDORA add a touch of glamour to everything they do, from collections to blog events; this Christmas celebration was no exception. I wanted to share a few photos from the event and sprinkle some Christmas spirit to Fairytale Kiss.

jean paul gaultier - scandal ♥

Jean Paul Gaultier, Scandal 50ml Eau De Parfum - The Fragrance Shop*
I think that perfumes are really personal. Whether you have a particular scent you are always drawn to or if you are quite random with what perfume you wear, I think fragrances are a fantastic beauty product that give you subtle confidence and I love that the beauty market has such a wide variety to choose from. I was kindly invited to The Fragrance Shop event and I was excited to learn that they have just launched a service named Scent Addict which is pretty perfect if you struggle to find your dream scent. For today's blog post I wanted to review the new Jean Paul Gaultier perfume and explain how it ties in with the #ScentAddict subscription service.
To be totally honest, I really don't think I spend enough time testing out different perfumes. Don't get me wrong, I love a pretty perfume bottle for my dressing table but I don't think I spend enough time trying different scents, I find it hard to step out of my comfort zone. The #ScentAddict subscription service is a dream come true, whether you love exploring new perfumes and aftershaves or if you simply want to branch away from your classic scent. You choose the perfume sample you would like and after signing up to Scent Addict, the team will send you an 8ml spray containing the fragrance. The postage is free and you can cancel anytime. If you like the sample, you will receive £12 off the full sized bottle - nifty right?
If you are thinking about choosing the new Jean Paul Gaultier Scandal fragrance for your subscription box, you are certainly in for a treat. When I first saw the packaging, I really liked that they have kept it similar to the other launches, the tin is a trademark statement from JPG and I love the pink suede tin it arrives in. The bottle design itself is amazing, we all know I am not a lover of pink but the combination of the silver legs makes the packaging look unique and classic and I just love everything about the fine detailing of this bottle. The fragrance itself is very sweet, the top notes include sweet honey, gardenia and blood orange. Now it sounds like a very intense shade but I find it incredibly wearable and elegant. What do you think of the new Scandal fragrance? If you are looking for a last minute Christmas present, the #ScentAddict subscription will be the perfect treat! ♥

youtube - christmas & new year party outfits ♥

For today's video, I wanted to film a video that focuses purely on party outfits. I had a lot of fun filming my ASOS and Missguided video in the summer so with Christmas around the corner, I thought a few party outfit suggestions would be quite useful. We all know my style is quite bold and full of sequins so I was really excited to pick my favourite outfits. I include a mixture of vinyl and glitter dresses so I hope you find some inspiration for your Christmas party of New Years event. Do let me know what you think of the outfits and what video you would like me to film next.

the comfy mustard bardot dress ♥

Yellow mustard bardot dress - To Save*     Heels: Roberto Cavalli    Tan: Skinny Express Mousse*
For today's blog post I wanted to talk about how I make the most of my summer wardrobe. Trying to save money means my winter wardrobe is having to take a back seat for now, but this has actually made me realise how much potential my summer outfits have. This gorgeous mustard yellow dress is a perfect example of how you can turn your summer dress into a winter outfit. I was kindly sent this dress by To Save and although this bardot dress design was very popular in the summer, there is no reason why you can't tweak this dress for the winter season.

I absolutely adore bardot style dresses, I am a very big fan of long sleeves and in the winter time, a bardot dress can be a lifesaver. I actually wore this outfit for dinner last week but don't worry, I paired it with a thick pair of tights and my over the knee boots so I didn't freeze. I love that this dress is wearable for both seasons and I even switched the design up by tying the sleeves together. 

If you are looking to style this dress in the summer, a pair of sandals and sunglasses is a simple yet classic look. I personally like simple, classic styles and I let the mustard yellow shade do the talking. I hardly ever wear yellow shades but this mustard colour is incredibly flattering with my skin tone. Of course I did apply a few layers of Skinny Tan to give me that sun kissed glow. I love feeling bronzed all year round so this is a great tip if you want to bring some summer rays into your winter wardrobe. 

My top tips for dressing for the colder weather is to is grab an oversized faux fur coat and a pair of thick tights. You can still wear a fitted summer dress but I have to feel warm at the same time, I am certainly not afraid of wearing summer colours in the winter time but a thick faux fur coat is my number one lifesaver. Swapping your open toed sandals for a pair of heeled boots is another winter friendly tip, they will compliment most summer dresses. I hope my tips have been helpful and I hope you like how I styled this dress. How would you make a summer dress more winter friendly? ♥

youtube - the buffy quiz ♥

The time has finally arrived. Yes, I have finally filmed a Buffy quiz. One of the first video ideas I ever had for my Youtube channel was based around Buffy the Vampire Slayer and if you have been reading my blog for a while, you will know I am utterly obsessed. My best friend Harri from university came down from Maidstone and we filmed this a few months ago, I have finally finished editing it which is why you may be confused because I have long hair in the video. I hope you enjoy watching and if you want me to film another quiz, let me know ♥

#tiptalk - christmas with fantastic services ♥

Christmas tree: Fantastic Services*    Sequin dress: Missguided 
I have already decided that I will not be waiting for the New Year to get my life in order. I am incredibly scatty when it comes to appointments, my wardrobe and keeping organised and although I have really improved this year, I don't think I am at a polished housewife standard yet. I ready admire my mum for being so organised and I really don't know how she managed Christmas every year with four children running around, (one of the children includes my dad of course), so I was really excited when a company named Fantastic Services* contacted me.

If you want to take a break from looking after your house or if you need a helping hand like me, Fantastic Services is a dream come true. Think of Fantastic Services as your fairy godmother. With a magical click of a button, a team of specialists will arrive at your door to cater to your every need. I was in desperate need of a Christmas tree and luckily for me, the Fantastic Services team arrived with a fresh, perfectly packaged tree. I simply arranged what time I wanted them to arrive and they did the rest of the work. Two delivery men from Fantastic Services arrived last Saturday morning, they arrived precisely on time and they even came prepared with shoe covers to keep my carpet clean. 

After telling the FS team where I would like the tree to be placed, they carefully unpackaged the netting and my Christmas tree was ready to decorate! They even offered to hoover the floor but I managed to tidy up later in the afternoon. What I really loved about the service is that the delivery men were more than willing to give me tips and tricks on how to look after the Christmas tree, from leaving the leaves to drop for an hour to keeping the base filled with fresh water. I love that they took the time to talk to me about how to look after the tree and they were not in a hurry to just leave the tree.

Fantastic Services not only specialise in Christmas tree delivery but they also have cleaners, electricians and other handymen available to help you around the house. So if you would prefer a helping hand this Christmas, you can easily phone or contact Fantastic Services through the website and voila, they do the rest of the work. With the Christmas period, it makes perfect sense to ask for a helping hand. As you can see from the photos, the tree is stunning and healthy and I didn't even need to leave the house to buy one myself. I cannot recommend the Fantastic Services team enough and luckily they have created a unique discount code for £10 off your first order*, from cleaners to pest control, you can save £10. Simply type the code: FAIRYTALEKISS10 at the check out ♥

Terms and conditions: 10 GBP off first booking. Does not apply for regular domestic cleaning and Christmas services. Cannot be combined with other deals and promotions. Min charges apply. Subject to availability and area coverage.

river island christmas gift guide - kids edition ♥

For today's blog post I thought it would be quite fun to make a Christmas gift guide for children, I recently visited one of my friends who has recently had a baby. She is absolutely gorgeous and it got me thinking about baby clothes. It must be pretty hard to dress children when they grow so quickly but I love that you can find such lovely outfits on the high street. The River Island Girls* section is a great place to start and I thought it would make a great blog post to put together a Christmas wish list. I cannot wait until I can go baby clothes shopping so if you are a parent, I hope you find this blog post useful ♥

#tiptalk - are you party season ready? ♥ AD

For today's #TipTalk post I wanted to talk about the party season. For many of us, the festive season through Christmas to New Year is a time for getting glammed up, putting on our party best and catching up with friends, family and colleagues. Whether you generally love or loathe the chance to mingle, social occasions can sometimes be stress-inducing or make us feel plain uncomfortable. From pressure to look your best, through to anxiety about mixing with people you don’t see too often, parties often throw up obstacles that can make us feel less, well, Christmassy. If this all sounds oh-so-familiar, today’s post is written just for you. Today I wanted to talk about loving the skin you’re in, styling out the season and setting your social confidence levels, so that the occasions in your Christmas calendar are merry and bright!
Love the skin you're in
Have you ever turned down a Christmas invite simply because you didn’t feel like you were looking your best? I know I certainly have. According to research carried out a few years ago by WeightWatchers, a fifth of us have declined festive invites due to self esteem issues. This means potentially missing out on fantastic food or drinks, quality ‘me’ time and catch ups because of something that’s niggling away at us.

With so many adverts around us showing flawless models in glitzy clothes and makeup, it’s easy to feel like you’re the only person struggling with common issues. Problems with skin and hair in particular can flare up in winter when the change in weather combined with increased styling can exacerbate issues. But there is help out there. From fighting off rosacea through to encouraging stronger hair roots that let you show off your styled tresses with ease, now’s a great time to take positive steps to combat problems where possible and also to remember that Christmas isn’t all about looking picture perfect.

Concentrate on the things you love about the way you look and take some time for the things that make you feel better this season. Whether it be trying out a new gym class or squeezing in an indulgent bubble bath, remember self care is a great start to stress busting and loving the skin you’re in.

Style out the season
In many ways, things were a lot easier when you didn’t need to worry about whether your Christmas party outfit was ‘Instagram-worthy’! The extra pressure of knowing that whatever you wear could end up being judged on social media can add to outfit selection stress. But let’s take a moment to think on that, is insta-worthiness really the best measure of outfit success?  Ask professional partygoers and their response may surprise you.

Model and fashion designer Julia Restoin Roitfield recently told The Telegraph that knowing what suits you is in her opinion, a far better way to express your personal style than “pandering to new trends”. And, if you’re worrying about slipping over in high heels during the colder weather, be assured that this It-girl wore trainers to her “best ever party”. Because in her own words: “When the music is good, all you should want to do is dance.”  

If you do want to splash out on a new outfit don’t feel like you need to spend a fortune or that you must choose something that’s totally-on-trend. After all, boasting about our bargains is a great British pastime and if you choose one outfit you love that feels totally you, you can style it different ways to get the best from it. Social confidence
Suddenly being thrust into a demanding social timetable can really take it out of you if you’re not used to socialising regularly. And, in reality a new outfit and makeover may boost our confidence but it won’t necessarily rid you of the anxiety that comes with festive occasions galore, combined with a to-do list that’s longer than Santa’s Christmas Eve delivery schedule. It’s perfectly normal to feel apprehensive about hitting the town if you haven’t done so in a while or being slightly nervous about seeing old friends or extended family. That doesn’t mean you need to let social anxiety get the better of you.

When those special parties come around, have an introduction and an ice breaker in the back of your head to help conversations start to flow. If you know and trust someone else at the party, why not talk to them about feeling slightly nervous and you can even work out a special signal so they can come and rescue your or provide social support if you feel out of your depth?

Take active steps to take charge of your own Christmas, work out which events and occasions are important to you and don’t feel guilty about turning down invites that may leave you feeling too frazzled.  Sometimes getting into the festive spirit requires you to unearth your inner sass! I hope you have found these tips useful, let me know if you have any tips for calming party season nerves!

4 natural beauty products you should buy this year ♥ AD

Switching to natural beauty products can bring a lot of benefits. Not only do natural beauty products not use toxic chemicals but they also don’t include parabens (preservatives) or synthetic fragrances. They are also not tested on animals and are much better for the environment. This is because beauty products are manufactured using chemicals that consequently enter our atmosphere and water. You should always be aware of exactly what you are putting on your skin and avoid products with a list of ingredients as long as your arm that you have never heard of. Here’s some natural beauty products you need to get your hands on.

youtube - first impressions: maybelline lipsticks ♥

Hi guys, for today's video I wanted to focus on Maybelline, I am a huge lover of Maybelline lipsticks and I bought four lipsticks to test out for the very first time. All four shades are from the Sensational range and it was really fun to film because I have never filmed a first impressions video before. I was very surprised with the shades and if you are looking for a festive Christmas red shade, this might be very useful for you to watch! If you would like me to test out anything in particular, let me know! ♥

the lanaiBLO hairdryer ♥

I had a total Grease inspired slumber party moment when I took these blog photos at the weekend. I was over the moon when a particular blog package arrived last week because it is not everyday you see your name on a hair dryer. That's right - Jade was neatly displayed on a black, sleek Lanai Blo hair dryer* and I couldn't wait to test it out and write this review for you all. I have said on numerous occasions how hard it is to style my hair, I have naturally frizzy, wavy hair and if I don't dry it with a hairdryer, all hell breaks loose.
I thought today would be the perfect opportunity to talk about cutting my hair and how this has made an overall difference to drying my hair. My hair was painfully damaged and thin before I cut it last month and I was in desperate need of a good trim. My hair feels incredibly thick and healthy now but I love how easy it is to style now that the ends are stronger. Your hairdryer certainly plays a big role in how your hair will dry, so it is important to find a hairdryer that will work effectively without causing heat damage.
When I first opened the LanaiBLO hairdryer, I was really impressed with how long the cord was. My mirror is on the other side of my bedroom so it can be such a pain to get up close with heated styling tools because the cord usually doesn't reach. For the appearance of the LanaiBLO hairdryer, the classic black design is my idea of heaven. It looks classic, smart and I love that you can personalise the hairdryers with your name - hello, perfect Christmas gift alert! When it came to using the LanaiBLO, I actually tested the hairdryer a few hours before I took these photos and my sister was sitting in my room while I did it. We were both shocked at how fast the LanaiBLO took to completely dry my hair.
The speed and heat was incredible and I have never had a hair dryer that worked so fast and let's be honest, drying your hair can be a real chore sometimes and I used to avoid drying my hair like the plague but I have actually been looking forward to using the LanaiBLO, I cannot fault how fast this hairdryer works. I love that you can blast your hair with different settings so if you want to create a skilled blowdry, you also have two different nozzles to choose from to create the look you want, or if you want a strong amount of power to give you body and volume - you have this option too.
Overall, I am amazed with this hair dryer, with Christmas approaching it certainly makes the perfect gift and you can choose from four different colours, including black, pink, white and a limited edition pink shade. Not only is the design very appealing, but the technology is also incredible. The hairdryer has built in ionic technology which reduces the appearance of frizzy hair, it keeps your hair cuticles smooth and flat. Hair that dries quickly and is left soft and smooth sounds like the perfect Christmas present to me. What do you think of the LanaiBLO hair dryer? Have you tried it before? ♥

the rokit christmas jumper ♥

Christmas Jumper - Rokit*     Vinyl Trousers - ASOS      Red Vinyl Boots - ebay
Hi guys, this is a very different style of blog post. I have stored away my sequin dresses to show you how I will be wearing my Christmas jumper this year. I am really excited because I have actually partnered up with Rokit to show you my new Christmas addition - a sequin Christmas jumper; of course I couldn't completely abandon sequins. I wanted to talk about how I would personally wear a festive jumper and I just had to pick a sequin inspired design. If you want to hear my tips and tricks and why I styled this outfit like this, keep reading.
We all know I never wear anything practical or casual so I thought this blog post would be a perfect  example of how you can make your Christmas jumper look extra stylish and sassy! This is how I will be wearing my Christmas jumper this December, yes the jumper design is very simple but I think this gives you extra room to play around with your hair, make-up or shoes.

If you don't have a red hot pair of vinyl boots laying around, a bold red lipstick is the next big thing. Make-up is another great way to rock a Christmas jumper and I think festive red lipsticks or glitter eye make-up is a must have, especially if you find a tinsel or glitter themed Christmas jumper. If you are just about to start your jumper search, Rokit is a great place to start your hunt. The reason why I picked this particular jumper is because I loved the subtle detailing, because the jumper is black it makes it very wearable.
I love the unique and vintage vibes that Rokit capture in their Christmas range, I have always loved anything Disney inspired and you can find very rare jumpers on the website or in the local Rokit stores. From Mickey Mouse to Snoopy, Rokit have a very special collection. Usually I try and find fitted jumpers but I ordered this jumper a few sizes bigger because I wanted to channel some Kourtney Kardashian style inspiration. She is a big fan of oversized jumpers and she is also a fan of over the knee boots. You can see one of her outfits here.
I may have got slightly carried away with this little photoshoot, I was pretty excited when I saw the metal railings and I thought this would make a fun location. I am definitely in the Christmas spirit already and I hope you like the way I have styled this particular Christmas jumper, let me know what you think of the Rokit range. How would you wear this Christmas jumper? Are you a fan of subtle festive jumpers or do you prefer bold and colourful designs? ♥

youtube - vegas beauty and hair routine ♥

I am back with my latest Youtube video and I am pretty excited that this is my first make-up and hair tutorial. In May I went to a hen do in Las Vegas and you may have seen this outfit photo on my Instagram page. I thought it would be quite fun to show you how I did that look but I actually decided to curl my hair for this tutorial just to make it slightly more glam. I think this is a very easy look to do and like I have said before, I am certainly not a professional make-up artist so this is just my routine.

#tiptalk - cooking with healthy oils ♥

I don't know about you but it feels like Christmas has arrived extra early this year. My gym membership has taken a holiday, (although I will try to go tonight), and my diet has been very takeaway heavy. I am trying to spend more time in the kitchen and I wanted to find out if I could make any subtle changes to the way I cook my food. Believe it or not, rapeseed oil* is a great alternative to using regular olive oil in the kitchen.
Before I started writing this post, I didn't know much about healthy methods of cooking food, sure I know about healthy ingredients but cooking oil does play a big part in how you prepare your breakfast, lunch and dinner. So what exactly is rapeseed oil? Rapeseed oil is grown in the UK and also Ireland, Canada, Germany, France and the Netherlands. It comes from the seeds of the plant, Brassica Napus and when the oil is being made it is cold pressed so all of the goodness stays inside the oil.
So if you are looking to cook a pasta, egg or rice dish, switch your sunflower oil to rapeseed oil, if you have vegetable oil in your cupboard you might be pleasantly surprised if you look at the ingredients on the back. My vegetable oil at home contains 100% rapeseed oil. I think subtle changes like this will make a big difference to your diet, especially with the festive Christmas season approaching. What subtle healthy cooking tips do you have? ♥

how to spice up your winter wardrobe ♥

I think this blog post will be like marmite. You either love the vinyl or glitter trend or you don't. We all know I am a big lover of bold fabrics and materials and if you are looking to spice up your clothes, hopefully this post will help. I was pretty excited when I ordered these vinyl over the knee boots from ebay, I was amazed at how affordable they were. A basic t-shirt and a pair of jeans is a great way to wear vinyl boots, I love how edgy this look is and it is completely out of my comfort zone.  

Another way to jazz up your winter wardrobe is sequins and glitter - yes, this is an easy and affordable option. If you are looking for sparkly jumpsuits or playsuits, QUIZ clothing have a pretty nifty selection at the moment. We all know I am big fan of QUIZ clothing and not only are the Black Friday deals pretty impressive but QUIZ have also launched a new Spanish website! I know I have a few Fairytale Kiss readers in Spain so shopping for QUIZ clothing has got a lot easier.

QUIZ currently has three stores in Madrid, Islazul, TresAguas and Xanadú, with more planned in 2018 and beyond, bringing QUIZ’s signature style to European fashionistas, pretty exciting right? What do you think of the QUIZ party range? I have picked three of my favourite jumpsuit/playsuits from QUIZ and they all have subtle hints of glitter and sequins! I hope this blog post has been helpful and it certainly shows that you can easily spice up your winter wardrobe with a few sequins or if you just zip up your vinyl boots!

brushworks brush sets ♥

I am back with a new beauty post and I wanted to talk about brushes. Make-up brushes are constantly changing and growing - there are new ways to apply your make-up and this year we have seen a big boom for make-up brands. I did review a Primark version of the infamous Oval brushes but the Brushwork collection has taken the word dupe to another level. Yes, I was happy with my Primark brushes but I didn't know what I was missing when I was kindly sent the Brushwork Oval set*. With Christmas around the corner, now is the ideal time to get your research glasses on, it is still possible to find high quality brushes with a reasonable price.

the nasty gal pop up event ♥

This month has been a pretty busy time for fashion and beauty brands. The Christmas launches are dropping like hot cakes and I was incredibly excited when Nasty Gal invited me to their pop up store launch. Decked head to toe in festive colours, I arrived at the pop up store in Carnaby Street very excited and eager to see the Nasty Gal range. I have always loved the bold and edgy style of Nasty Gal and we all know my love of leather, vinyl and leopard print is very much welcomed in the Nasty Gal clothing collection. If you are looking for unique, bold and edgy outfits - you have come to the right place.

superdrug we love face masks ♥

I think if you've been reading Fairytale Kiss for the past few years, you'll know by now that I can be pretty unorganised when it comes to my beauty routine. I am a very naughty procrastinator and my skin care routine has certainly taken a backseat over the last few months. I always neglect my skin and I am so tired of doing it! My skin has been incredibly dry lately so I've skipped using face make-up during the weekdays but this still hasn't solved the problem. I was really excited when the lovely team at Superdrug sent me the new We Love Face Masks* collection to test out because it was perfect timing for my skin drama.

the chloé x sorel event ♥

Wednesday evening was a big pinch me moment. I was kindly invited to see the new Chloé x Sorel preview in Chelsea and I couldn't wait to get to the store. A few months ago I wrote my brand spotlight piece on Chloé so to see a close up preview of the new snow boots was a very exciting and rewarding moment for me and for Fairytale Kiss. I arrived sharply at 7.00pm and I was greeted with champagne at the door. I was invited to the event at the last minute so I had to make an emergency dash to Zara to find an outfit.

youtube - vlog #03 valencia ♥

I am finally back with another Youtube video! I am so sorry for taking so long to post this, the building work is now complete in my house and I can get back to editing and filming new content. Ollie and I drove to Valencia from Alicante in the summer and I brought my camera along. We go shopping, explore and we find the most beautiful restaurant that is surrounded by fish! I hope you enjoy watching this video and I will be working on my next video this evening. If you have any questions or if you would like me to film something in particular, let me know ♥

missguided 50% off sale ♥

I am usually very late to the party when it comes to sales. I either miss them completely or I buy something full price the week before but today I am prepared. I saw the Missguided sale and I thought it would be a great chance to make a list of my favourite products. To get 50% off all you need to do is write: babe50 in the checkout area online. This doesn't include sale items but it covers all of your winter needs from faux fur coats to vinyl trousers and 50% off is always a great way to start the day. I love that Missguided are giving us a chance to treat ourselves before the Christmas period! I hope you like my picks and as we all know, all I ever buy is faux fur, vinyl, leather or satin - happy shopping

brand spotlight - michael kors ♥

I spend quite a lot of time in this particular shop. Last year I treated myself to a pair of Michael Kors burgundy snake print boots which I am still obsessed with so I thought this year I could write a brand spotlight post about what I think of Michael Kors. I popped into the Chelsea store earlier today and I always find the staff so friendly and helpful, I don't feel pressured or bugged by anyone and it is really nice to look around the store without someone following you, especially when we are approaching the Christmas period and stores are usually wanting you to spend, spend, spend.
