3 Gift Ideas - Beauty Related

As next week we will be in December, I am sure many people will have either started to gather presents or will be starting very shortly. I did a post a couple of weeks ago talking about ideas that were non-beauty related for those people who aren't necessarily interested in beauty or fancied just getting something different for a change. This week, I thought about doing a beauty related post for those people who wanted an idea for people interested in makeup.

Zoeva - Rose Golden Brush Set
I cannot rave about these brushes any more than I currently do. I put these on my list and was lucky enough to have these bought for me as a present. They are the softest brushes I own and they are used on a daily basis. I love the finish they give due to the quality being amazing! Any makeup/beauty lover is more than likely going to need a decent set of brushes and these make a perfect present.

MAC - Nutcracker Collection
What is more unique that a limited edition product? MAC often have at least one limited edition collection running over Christmas and this year it happens to be the 'Nutcracker'. All of the products in this collection are beautiful and couldn't get a more fitting product if they tried.

Becca X Jaclyn Hill- Champagne Pop
Im pretty sure the majority of beauty lovers either have this product or will have this on their list this year. It is a gorgeous highlight and one that will get people talking. This product has fast become a staple in everyone's collection so why miss out?

I hope you found this useful!

Jess Glynne - Take Me Home Tour

As you may have seen on Twitter, I went to see Jess Glynne last night at the Genting Arena in Birmingham for her opening night of the 'Take Me Home Tour'. 

Me and my Mum decided that we were going to make a day of being in Birmingham so went for a shopping trip beforehand to the Bullring. It was a pretty successful trip and managed to cross a few people off the Christmas list (which is always a bonus!) The Bullring had all of the Christmas decorations up as well as a tree outside of the church adding to the Christmas spirit. A girly day isn't complete without a meal so we decided to go to Jamie's Italian as I could get perks with being a gold club member. Dinner was lovely as always and service was pretty quick to say the restaurant was full.

We both decided that we were going to go to the Arena later on and miss all the rush when the gates opened as we had seated tickets. Our seats were in block 13 so we were a fair distance back from the stage but could still workout who was who on stage. There were big screens to the side which helped you to see a lot better.

The set was full of energy and Jess really got the crowd going with a few call and response sections. She also explained the reason behind her 'Take Me Home' song and how she was going through a really hard time and her best friend (who is also the creative director) helped her through it so she decided to write a song all about it.

The whole day was amazing but the night really topped it off and would definitely go and see her again!

Have you been to the Bullring before? Are you a fan of Jess Glynne?

3 Gift Ideas - Non-Beauty Related

I feel as though it is now acceptable to talk about Christmas seeing as the John Lewis Christmas ad is out. Every year, I am asked to make a list with a few ideas that I may like for both Christmas and my birthday. Despite that the majority of the list has beauty products on, I do try to put down some non-beauty related ideas to try and mix things up.

Theatre Tickets
One of the first ideas this year for me is theatre tickets. I really enjoy seeing Christmas pantos and it is the only time that I tend to go. However, I will be in London for my birthday and I am planning to try and see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory so have asked for tickets to see the show.

Day Trips
There are many places I would still love to visit in the UK so why not plan a little visit? If you know someone that already has everything then why not book to go somewhere and treat them to train tickets or an entry ticket somewhere so that they definitely know that they are going as a little surprise for them.

DIY Gift
You don't have to spend a load of money trying to get a great present. A personal and unique gift is likely to be more meaningful and better appreciated if you have put time aside to actually make something. This could include a scrapbook of photos with both you and them in it and make it really personal to them.

Have you already started to plan what you are getting friends and family or have you actually started buying?

Catfish and The Bottlemen - Derby Arena

If you were here back in July, you would known that I saw Catfish at Castlefield Bowl in Manchester. It was such an amazing experience and so unique! Last night, I was lucky enough to see them for a second time at Derby Arena.

It was very different to Castlefield as that was outdoors whereas this was in an arena but they certainly didn't disappoint! Everyone was constantly involved and singing along. The support act for this tour are July Talk and they were something alright. I have to admit, I was left speechless and had to question a few times what I was actually witnessing.

I really enjoyed the night and the music and would most definatly want to see them again elsewhere such as abroad maybe?

Have you ever seen Catfish and The Bottlemen? Have you heard of their music?

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed
