I feel that a lot of my ‘wishlist’ items this year are very much things that everyone in my family knows are favourites and I was thinking a bit more of what is ‘new for me’ for this list. Something that might make my family be a little surprised when they see this. Hopefully it might help with some ideas for you or to help with your shopping too.

ColourPop MakeUp Haul
I’ve never tried ColourPop MakeUp before but when Jeffree Star reviewed their ILUVSARAHII X ColourPop Chic-Y & $aucey Pressed Powder Palettes, I was like GIIIIIRRRRRRRL that purple palette was made for me! I was so happy to see someone doing a colourful palette, I’m getting so sick of neutral palettes all over everywhere.
I was browsing around ColourPop for a while and I signed up for their newsletter and was given a discount code, they also had a Raid The Mini Bar offer where when you spend $20 you get to choose a mini satin lip sampler from their mini bar, so I basically had to do a bit of a haul. Then for every additional $10 you could pick another mini satin lip sampler, so I ended up being able to pick five! Now y’all know your girl isn’t big into lip products so I chose three for me and two for Sarah. Check out the goodies I got…

Must Have Fall Candles!
I am beyond happy that Fall is finally here! I’ve never liked Summer or hot weather, give me the cold or the snow anytime. It’s been quite warm and humid here in Ireland so it’s a relief that the weather has been cooling down. I hope I don’t jinx it.
I love this time of year mainly because that means I can wear one of my million cozy scarves, I can wrap up in fluffy blankets and I can light more candles than I normally would. 😛
Here’s a selection of some fabulously fall candles that would be perfect for this time of year…
Apple Cider & Bourbon by Lynwood Candle Company – Inspired by the aromas of piping hot apple cider with just a touch of smoky bourbon. Infused with natural cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, orange, and cedarwood essential oils. Read More
