I'm currently sitting watching The Grinch while my flatmate puts up the Christmas tree (he is the king of trees, I don't mess with his decorating skills) and getting cosy in my onesie. Not just any onesie mind you.
Meet the magic that is OnePiece. I'm not gonna lie, I've had this on every night since it got delivered. I know not everyone is the biggest fan of jumpsuits like this, but it's comfy and cosy and I absolutely love mines (the Marius in grey/white/navy) I'm itching to wear it going snowboarding! Maybe somewhere indoors like Xscape though, where I'm less likely to fall over and get a wet bum.
If you were at the Clothes Show Live in Birmingham over the weekend like myself then you might have seen their massive stall. It looked like their team were having a lot of fun :) They have so many different styles and colours on offer, if you're looking to buy one as a christmas present or perhaps one for yourself, then you can get 20% off with the code 31LITTLEBLOGOFHORRORS which is valid until 23rd December. Be sure to let me know if you order one, I promise you won't regret it.
I've been enjoying some lovely new gold and shimmery eye makeup from MeSoMakeup. The shimmering eye and lip pencil is from Barry M, and although I would use it on my eyes I am not so sure if I'd be brave enough for on my lips. I also got the Lily Lolo (a brand which I have been wanting to try for AGES) mineral eyeshadow in Vanilla Sparkle. Both are highly pigmented and long lasting, and have been adding a nice festive touch to my daily cat eye look. MeSoMakeup also stock some other brands you don't always get on the high street, and the Zombie Girl Mineral Collection from Concrete is next on my list. Best packaging ever (if you love a zombie like me)
Onto hair, in this post I styled my locks with the Uevo Design Cube Soft Gloss, imported from Japan but available from The Hyde Park Hair Shop. First up, it smells AMAZING. Almost good enough to eat. I only need a light hold across my fringe but do like to mix it up with a bit of texture and the soft gloss was perfect for that. It has a really subtle shimmer throughout which left my hair looking nice and shiny. I hate hair that looks overly styled (unless deliberate) and I can't wait to show this cube to my Mum, who is a hairdresser turned session stylist for fashion shoots. Think this would be a perfect addition to her kit.
Would you judge me if I told you I have no shame at all in jumping to the shops in my OnePiece and Hello Kitty Vans (They're not just for the kids, you can get adult sizes at Spartoo) Well, I have no shame! My love for Hello Kitty and Vans makes these shoes the perfect combination. Even if the first compliments I got on them were from my little sister. December has been all about keeping cosy for me so far, I don't think I'm ready to give up my comfies for party dressed just yet.
Something a little bit different to end the post, but recently I gained a lovely who flatmate (and her cat, who Dexter is in love with!) called Claire and she is my old personal trainer from boot camp. She has been amazing company and a great influence to have around the house at this time of year when it is easy to indulge a little too much. She has been giving me PT sessions every week and I've been using this new Water-to-go water bottle, which has been given her seal of approval!
Apart from being a pretty sturdy water bottle, it contains a filter system on the inside that can turn bathroom, stream or rainwater into perfectly safe drinking water. The filter lasts about 3 months/200 litres of water and doesn't cost much to replace (around £7) which is pretty good considering how much we spend on bottled water when out and about. I know this is the season of mulled wine and hot chocolate, but I've made a vow to myself to drink more water and not completely loose sight of my healthy eating amongst the churros and bratwursts at the Glasgow Christmas Market...
