Makeup Revolution - Golden Sugar Ultra Blush Palette

I can't express how excited I was to see this in the parcel that landed behind my door. I'm a huge fan of the Ultra Blush palettes and I have been using the Hot Spice palette religiously since it was released. The palette it's self is full of merged blushes, beautiful shimmer and golds that will give any goddess a run for their money.

Christmas with Kate ♥ Collaboration with Toxic Fox

 This is probably the most excited I have been about creating a gift guide so far. I love nothing more then a personalised gift. Personalised gifts are the one's that take the most time, the biggest effort and are definitely the most meaningful. Introducing Toxic Fox the ultimate online gift retailer and royalty of fabulous personalised gifts. When Toxic Fox messaged me about a Christmas gift guide collaboration I was so thrilled, they have a wide selection of great gifts to choose from, there's experience days, alcohol gift sets, cheeky gifts and so much more. Toxic Fox have recently undergone an online makeover which makes it so much easier to navigate from product to product using laptop, tablet or mobile device. Everything's easy to find in sections for Christmas and so on, with Youtube video's available to make finding the perfect gift even more easier.

Wedding Inspiration with

When getting married the main focus is always on the Bride and the gorgeous dress they've chose to wear on the most special day of their entire life. There's a whole list of focuses for the Bride themselves, accessories, makeup, shoes and making sure they don't trip at any stage throughout. I've collaborated with the gorgeous people over at by to bring you makeup products you can use to create beautiful looks along side one of my favourite dresses from their website. Weddings are something I think about every now and again - after all every girl dreams of the day they get to dress like a princess and marry their prince. I've been in a relationship since I was 17 and not come close to planning a wedding. I'm not even engaged! The idea of a wedding fills me with dread to be honest. Don't get me wrong it's definitely something I want to do, but the thought of all eyes on me makes me want to have a panic attack nor matter how close I am to these people. I'd rather go abroad and have a small ceremony, followed by a get together on our return, and preferably by the time I'm 30 else I'm never getting married. Haha!

Christmas with Kate ♥ Makeup Revolution

Image Source: Superdrug
 Makeup Revolution have gone from strength to strength since launching at the beginning of the year with numerous new releases that are keeping every keen beauty lover talking. Not only are their products super affordable but they have the quality of a product worth much much more. Recently they launched their exclusive Christmas gift sets into Superdrug, with seven to choose from there's something for everyone. Not only are they marked down at the moment but each set is so affordable they would make great stocking fillers or a present alone, depending on your budget.

Latest in Beauty - The #BBBDreamBox2

 Jane from British Beauty Blogger recently teamed up with Latest in Beauty to bring the #bbbdreambox2. This is Jane's fourth box but only the second with Latest in Beauty. When Jane's first box with Latest in Beauty came out I didn't sit down in anticipation with debit card in hand waiting to order before it went out of stock. I wasn't that interest in beauty boxes - being a relatively new blogger and not knowing much about them. I'd recently signed up to She Said Beauty, the box that is now no-more and that was it. It was afterwards the posts started popping all over my newsfeed and I knew I'd really missed out. When I saw on Twitter another was coming, I waited until that big day and were one of the first to order, before Jane (move over Kim Kardashian) broke the internet, or us just going crazy for these boxes.

Makeup Revolution - The ONE Fluid Blusher

 For the last few weeks Makeup Revolution have been throwing new releases at us, not literally, but they've been pretty much taking over my Facebook news feed and I've been sat at the laptop impressed with everything I've seen. I was fortunate to be sent a package of some of the items, including: The Iconic Dreams palette if you want a read. I were also sent 2 of The ONE Fluid Blushers.

Christmas with Kate ♥ Frame Again

 Frame Again are a newly found company famous for appearing on Dragons Den and turning down the offer given (The two selling their company and then working for Jessops) before raising the cash needed 24 hours later. Pretty impressive if I do say so myself, considering the idea came during in one of the owners attendance of a wedding. In fact I found reading up about the company very interesting - being a fan of photography, something frames go well with.

Manchester Christmas Market

 Yesterday me and the other half drove over to Manchester to visit the annual Christmas markets that had been put up. Everything was super festive and reminded me that Christmas, is in fact, just around the corner. They were the smell of German sausages, paella and chocolatey treats in the air, and everyone was very merry drinking cups of warm mulled wine. If there's one thing us (the United Kingdom) lack in is these sorts of markets, which is why every year I eagerly anticipate the Christmas market, because the rest of Europe do markets best. I'm a huge fan of French markets having visited them on many occasions. It was busier then I expected it to be for a week day but not so jam packed you couldn't move.

Makeup Revolution - Iconic Dreams Palette

 Nothing excites me more then a new Makeup Revolution release, especially palettes, which are my favourite makeup product. This time round they've released a palette of dreams - Iconic Dreams Palette that is - and it's absolutely beautiful. An array of shimmers with a few matte shades thrown in for good measure. Unbelievably it's just £4.00.

Christmas with Kate ♥ My Wishlist

Image source: In links

 With Christmas just round the corner - a little over a month in fact - I thought it was time I started putting in some 'Christmas inspired' posts. What better way to start then with my own Christmas Wishlist, hopefully to give you some Christmas inspiration and ideas of your own (not that we all have the same tastes). Not going to lie, I have much more then this on my list but thought I'd better limit myself. I also have had a few other things bought for me that weren't on my list, that I chose, and I know of a few of these that I will be receiving off the big man in red.

Love, Rosie ♥

 Love, Rosie is one of those films that I saw the trailer and instantly wanted to watch it. Not only being a fan of Lily Collins since watching The Mortal Instrument, but being a mega fan of any cheesy, romantic comedy.

Makeup Revolution | Awesome Dual Brow

I hope I'm not the only one who's news feed on Facebook is stacked up with numerous new releases from Makeup Revolution. Those guys are in serious need of a extra, long, holiday! Not that I'm complaining... I've never seen a brand deliver newbies so fast in my life, and the new products are spot on. Awesome Dual Brow is just one in a long list.

First to Fall by Carys Jones | Review

 Lawyer Aiden Connelly traded the chaotic city life of Chigago for a more peaceful one when he moved to sleepy Avalon - and his first case doesn't appear to be so open-and-shut as he'd hoped for. Aiden is hired to defend a local beauty queen accused of murdering her husband, but there happens to be more to it then meets the eye, as Aiden is soon to find out. Avalon isn't the quiet, sleepy town that it appears to be.
