#REVIEW | Mini Moderns diffuser

Something a little different from makeup and skincare products on my blog! Although its different it isnt loved any less, i give you the Whitby diffuser from Mini Moderns. Mini Moderns is an interior brand and has a wide range of products from candles to washbags, cushions, wallpaper and much more. It kind of reminds me a little of the brand Sass and Belle as you can see clearly what the theme is and can determine if its for you or not. 

I have had a browse on the site and i must say i do love a lot of the pieces on there. It really gives you a feel that your supporting a local business which is unique and homley rather than mass production products.

I really love the Whitby collection, which is what this diffuser is from and i was blessed enough to have been sent it! 
So i know that Whitby is in Yorkshire but i cant help feeling nostalgic about Brighton when i look at this diffuser :) i hope by now you all know that i have this thing with Brighton and go there any chance i get and there is a high possibility i will move there sometime in the future. So the fact that this is a seaside inspired piece really spoke to me.

The scent is called sea spray and is a very strong smelling scent, just what  i need in my diffuser. It has filled my room with gorgeousness already! Im a huge fan of diffusers and i think they are an amazing idea for a gift.

I also figured that when the scent has run out (it lasts for 3 months) i can still use the glass, as i love love love the sea side design :)

#BEAUTY | Christmas gift guide for women

"Deck the halls with boughs of holly, sha a la la la la laaaa" 
Its that time of year again where you go shopping to buy for others yet end up coming home with new makeup and clothes for yourself! I know you are as guilty as me haha. So to try, and i say try very lightly because i have basically made a gift guide for a blogger and myself ..but to try and help you buy a few gifts for those special ladies in your life i have created a gift guide.
Whether it be your mum, sister, aunt ,gf or BFF..i hope to at least inspire you a little with my ideas :)

90% of people own a phone, so there is always an idea to buy a phone case. I personally would be very happy with a new snazzy phone case as i am an addict. My favourite brand is Skinny Dip London, i cant explain how much i want ALL the phone cases on the site, its not even a joke. There is something for everyone on there!! I think i had this idea on my gift guide last year also!

Xmas parties galore! New years parties galore!
 If there was ever a time for glam and nail varnish its now! Again with this type of gift it can suit everyone because it just depends on the colour they prefer.. i have used Barry M varnishes forever and i love the colour range they do and also the staying power.

YASSSS... my favourite subject. Makeup!! Bring on the glitter smokey eyes, the contour and highlight BUT at the end of the night it all has to come off, as sad as that is after the masterpiece that has been created! Instead of burning your face with those hellish baby wipes, give the gift of a makeup up remover just like this one from Nouveau Lashes, it is sooooo much softer on the skin and removes every trace of panda eyes!

p.s. dont forget those brows, a brilliant stocking filler the lash
 and brow conditioning serum is a must have!
I think the hardest gift to get someone is perfume, if you do not know their favourite scent then i would steer clear because you could be in for big disappointment! If you have been asked or picked up on hints for their favourite perfume then go for it, cos i am always grateful to accept perfume as a gift.
Something a bit more personalised now, if you know your gift reciever has a charm bracelet i think it is so nice to buy a charm that means something to you both. It is always nice to get something that is kind of like a secret between 2 people and means a lot more than just opening up a gift. Pandora also do beautiful rings and necklaces.

Happy buying :)

#ANIMAL | Christmas treats for your pooch

Tis' the season to spoil your pooch! Of course i have other bits wrapped up for this cutie but here are a few bits i just HAD to share as the love he had for them needed to be known.

One of my fave online destinations to pick up things for him is 
They have a wide range of items from food to pet beds :) so what did i get?

First of all he needs some Natures Menu - Country hunter will do just fine. With a blend of blueberry and venison this gluten and grain free wet food has all the goodness he needs.

For a snack Pet Munchies -chicken breasts fillets, as chicken is his favourite! These ones keep him busy and quiet for a while as they are a hard texture and he can sit there as long as he wants and bite them up into little pieces..

Simba's final treat is a bag of Huntlands - Turkey flavour , he really munched these ones up! The bag will last him a while as it is a 2kg bag, its actually on sale now for £8.99...such a good price. As the food is natural and grain free i feel a lot more happier about him eating it rather than if i bought a lot of the supermarket based foods which have tonnes of additives in them. Im just glad he loves them!

The foods are great for everyday, seasonal use but maybe you can buy certain items as a christmas gift if for example you are looking to change your pets diet slowly or even to just try out some new brands and flavours.

He really is a spoilt pup this christmas!
