Wetherspoon Christmas Dinner 2015


Places seem to be bringing out their Christmas dinners earlier this year, I could have sworn last year and other years didn't start until last least the first or second week in December. I saw advertised Wetherspoons started doing their Christmas dinner from the 16th of November, so I headed along with my mum. 

The Christmas menu is £7.99 for a main meal and drink. There is also starter and desserts for around an extra £2 each. We went for the starter, main meal and dessert because it's not a Christmas meal without your starter or dessert is it ? 

I had in my mind the British broccoli & Stilton soup for started because I had it last year and it tasted amazing. My honest opinion if your Wetherspoon has the cheese and broccoli soup, go for that it's the best !!!! I had the tomato and basil soup, it was ok but not as good as the cheese and broccoli soup. 


When the main meal arrived I thought something doesn't look right? So I looked back last years blog post and tried matching up the photos. I realised there was no sprouts, stuffing or cranberry sauce, yet I had about half a plate of peas. My mum mentioned to one of the workers where's the sprouts and the worker replied sorry they aren't getting the right delivery in yet. I don't eat sprouts all year round, but have them at Christmas to why I couldn't figure what was missing. There's plenty supermarkets near the Wetherspoon, someone could have easily sneaked out and got some sprouts lol. 


Dessert time I choose the caramel cheesecake. The caramel tastes so good, I ended up eating the caramel first then the cheesecake section.

Nars GlossyBox


When GlossyBox brings out a limited edition GlossyBox, it's always a good one. This time they have collaborated with Nars !!! Back in October a got an email about a limited edition Nars GlossyBox. I've bought a few Nars products in the past, so I signed up right away for an email to let me know when it was available. It felt like so long ago, I forgot all about it until I saw people hash tagging Nars GlossyBox on Twitter. 

It went for sale on Monday at 9am and I work Monday's. Lucky I usually get my break at 9am, so I rushed on my break to try buy one and managed to buy one. When I finished work I read it sold out in 27 mins !!!!! 

Price

Subscriber - £30
Non - Subscriber £35
Plus £2.95 delivery

The GlossyBox arrives in a cardboard parcel box labeled GlossyBox and inside is the limited edition Nars GlossyBox. The boxes are solid and the Nars is limited edition, so it will make an awesome collectable or even just to store small things. Inside is wrapped tissue with a luxury ribbon saying Nars GlossyBox and a leaflet about all the products. It was wrapped up so neat, I hated opening it ruining the packaging. All five products come in the standard Nars black boxes, but since they are about half the size of the full size products they come in cute wee boxes.    

Products : 
Audacious mascara
Larger than life eyeliner 
The multiple - Orgasm 
Blush - Orgasm
Satin lip pencil - Rikugien

Some of the names are funny, no wonder they are top sellers !!!!

When it comes to lips, I love nudes or reds. Who doesn't love nude lips ? The pencil is a rose nude colour in Rikugien and feels soft on your lips, like a lipstick.
Full size price - £19


The multiple does exactly what the name says. It can be used in multiple ways, cheeks, lips eyes or anywhere. It comes in the colour orgasm, sounds dirty but I think most of Nars products have catchy names. I think I'll use this on my cheeks, as a highlighter.
Full size price - £29


The audacious mascara brush has a mix of long and short bristles, little lengthening hooks and is slightly tapered to lift , curl and amplify your lashes, so I can't wait to try this Nars mascara out !!!
Full size price - £21


I've never wore blush since I was a child. I had a friend Also called Danielle and we'd put on eyeshadow, blush and lipstick and our parents would laugh at us saying our cheeks looked too pink. Maybe now am older this blush is a chance for me to try again. The blush comes in the colour orgasm again. How amazing does this colour look ?
Full size price - £23


The larger than life long wear eyeliner is long wear, let me just tell you that for sure. I done a swatch and forgot to wash it off. I washed my hands a few days that day and it was still there. I had to get hot water and scrub hard to remove it. I think this will be a favourite eyeliner. I like long lasting mascara and eyeliner, so it's not smudged half way through the day and you end up looking a state. 
Full size price - £19


The Nars GlossyBox is amazing for the price !!! It works out about £6 an item buying the GlossyBox.

Garnier 24 hour hydrating day cream

I saw the Garnier 24 hour day cream half price at only £2 in Tesco and I think you've probably noticed by now when it comes to trying different products I like to pick them up when they are on offer. £2 is pretty cheap for a face cream, so least if it's not that good you don't mind chucking it. 

The Garnier 24 hour day cream comes in a sealed cardboard box, so you don't really get to see what it's like until you buy and open it. Inside the cardboard box is a 50ml plastic tub. I choose the grape water one. I must admit at first I thought who wants their skin smelling of grapes, but it's actually not as bad as it sounds it's actually very light scented. 

When I first started using this I would dip my finger in, but realised it was too much. A little dab on your finger is enough to cover your face. 

It's really cheap at £2 and it's easy to apply when you're in a hurry.

Garnier intensive 7 day hand cream


The weather is getting colder in the UK, now Autumn is here. We seem to be getting mixed weather sunny and warm or windy and cold, so it really put a 7 day hand cream to the test. 


The Garnier 7 day hand cream comes in a 100ml plastic tube and costed only £2. I put a small amount on my hands and my hands felt nice and smooth. A few days later it was really good and my hands didn't feel their best, so I put some more of the 7 day hand cream on. Then we had warmer days and my hands didn't feel like they needed any more hand cream on them. 

I'd say it works, as long as it's not too cold or you'll need to apply more.

Jo Malone London Advent Calendar



It's that time of year again, each year more and more brands are bringing out advent calendars. We don't even know which one to go for now, since there's so many. !!! Last year I saw the Jo Malone advent calendar, but at £260 I hesitated about buying it. Am just an ordinary girl, so £260 is alot to me, but I do like to treat myself (sometimes). It went for sale and sold out in a day. When I heard the Jo Malone advent calendar was coming back this year, there was no thinking about it. 

The Jo Malone advent calendar went for sale on the Jo Malone website on November the 2nd. I got up early before work to buy it, but still had "coming soon". I checked again on my lunch break and was available, so I quickly bought it before regretting missing out on it again. A few hours later I was curious and checked back the website and showed as "sorry, this item is sold out". I was so happy I managed to get one before they sold out. 

The advent calendar is designed around the famous London Town house. It has so much detail showing the 5 floors, the little windows, door and every brick detail. It even has the number 52 just like the Georgian town house in London. I love the Christmassy look with the wreath on the door. The middle opens out to reveal the advent window numbers. Each window pulls out like a drawer and is wrapped in black tissue. 

Its one of the most expensive advent calendars I have seen for £260, but for that price you get 23 luxury miniture perfumes, body creams, body and hand washes. On the 24th day you get a 50ml body cream. 

Products :

Wood sage and sea salt cologne 9ml

Peony and blush suede body and hand wash 15ml

Lime basil and mandarin cologne 9ml

Dark Amber and ginger lily cologne intense 9ml

Pomegranates noire body creme 15ml

Red roses cologne 9ml

Velvet rose and oud cologne intense 9ml

Grapefruit body and hand wash 15ml

Nectarine blossom and honey cologne 9ml

Tuberoses angelica cologne intense 9ml

Orange blossom body creme 15ml

Pomegranates noir cologne 9ml

Earl grey and cucumber cologne 9ml
 
Blackberry and bay body and hand wash 15ml

Nectarine blossom and honey body creme 15ml

Incense and cedrat cologne intense 9ml

Nutmeg and ginger body creme 15ml

Blackberry and bay cologne 9ml

Oud and bergamot cologne intense 9ml

Peony and blush suede cologne  9ml

Wood sage and sea salt hand body and hand wash 15ml

English pear and freesia cologne 9ml

Red roses body and hand wash 15ml

Peony and blush suede body creme 50ml

It's a good chance to try different Jo Malone products, with 24 different products to try out. My favourite ones are the Orange blossom body creme, Oud and bergamot cologne intense, Peony and blush suede cologne, Tuberose angelica, Velvet rose and Odu cologne intense. I am not going to lie, I grudged paying £260 for an advent calendar, but it really is worth the money you pay and remember it's a sell out every year !!!!
