Winter must haves

My Winter Must Haves
Winter must haves

Hey Everyone,
I cannot believe its only 16 days till Christmas but than again who's counting.
Today I have decided to share with you my Winter must haves, these are just a few things I like to wear during winter.

No. 1 Casual  Dress
I really like to wear casual daytime dreses in th Winter I dont know I just feel more confident wearing a dress with tights in Winter than going bare legged In Summer during the day time.

No. 2 Party Dress
Since tis the season for Christmas party's I think there's no better time to crack out the sparkles then Christmas

No. 3 Dark lipstick 
I really like a dark lipstick, I'm not confident enough to go very dark but I do like a berry color

No.4 Boots 
If you dont know my love for Topshop cut out boots, your about to find out.
I think these boots are adorable especially with a dress,I just wish Santa would bring me a pair.

No.5  and No.8 Hot chocolate and parka coat
I love sitting down in the evening, in winter with Mam with a hot chocolate,
No.6 Beanies Galore
I wearing my jacket with  beanies it keeps my ears warm and fashionable.
Primark/Penneys do very cheap beanies which are super cosy and warm.

No.7,9 and 10 Cosy Clothes
Again I love chilling in the evening in cosy clothes in the cold weather.

I hope you enjoyed this and maybe found some inspiration.

What are you guys up to for the weekend?
 I'm wrapping Christmas present with my friend and going Ice-skating and going to the cinema with the girls.
Anyway Its going to be a busy weekend getting some last minute present

Love always.

Christmas day outifts

Christmas Day Outfit I deasChristmas day outifts

Hey guys,
Firstly can I just say a huge thank  you to everyone who has read my blog, I know I don't get too
 many comments,but I only started a few months ago, and I recently hit 550 page views this is a huge achievement and I just want to thank my loyal followers on bloglovin and all the friends I have made through this fantastic hobby.If you new.You can follow me thorough Bloglovin >>

I hope everyone is enjoying the build up to Xmas as much as I am, I'm currently seated with hot chocolate with my mam watching telly
So I recently joined a lovely website called Polyvore, which allowed me to make this collage.^^
Since its only a few days till Christmas I decided to do a Christmas Day Outfits collage.

Here is what I've come up with:

1. Topshop purple velvet skirt
I don't know why but velvet really reminds me of Christmas, I think this would be really nice with a white shirt or an over sized jumper, with black tights and ankle boots.

2.Daisy tunic dress
I really like this and think its nice and casual and very festive. I think this would be very nice with Doc Martins or Chelsea boots 

3.Tartin Primark/Pennys dress
Ok I know what your thinking Summerbay school uniform from Home and away? But I really love it, and proudly own it and probably think this is what I'll be wearing Christmas day.

So the next idea is more casual and comfy. I know some people like to wear comfy clothes on Christmas day and others like to dress up. Personally I like to go comfy on Christmas Eve and dress up on Christmas day.

4.Topshop Gingerman Jumper and New Look Christmas Leggings
I love the gingerbread man jumper , this is by far my favorite Christmas novelty jumper I've seen yet.

The leggings, well New Look are my favorite place to go for leggings and these just the cutest leggings ever.

I hope this was helpful and a bit different. Dont forget to comment telling me what you'll be wearing for Christmas and what your think I should wear. Again thank you so much for reading and being apart of my blogging journey :')

Love always and always,
Nixie xx

Comfort Zones

Comfort Zones

Hey Everyone!
So as you may have known I'm not a huge fan of lip glosses and I'm a bit too scared to try a bright lipstick.
But I've decided to push myself out of my comfort zone and try rock a bright lipstick.

In saying that I'm clueless as to what shades would suit me.
I'd like to start with neutrals then work up to reds, as I think they look perfect for Christmas.
I've heard a lot of hype over Rimmel's Kate Moss Collection, so I wouldn't be surprised If you see that in a haul or review.

But please leave a comment telling me your favorite lipsticks and shades and I'll be sure to look out for them.
I excited to push myself and I encourage you all to do the same.
Who knows you might see me wearing green and pink eye shadow next week ;)
Love Always,

I do not own the rights to any of these photos.

Review: My Summer


How is everybody doing? Good? ya :)
So today is my last day of the Summer holiday, and I've realized no matter how much I try to ignore it, its happening. So on my last day of freedom, I'm finishing off a project, a little bit last minute huh? Its only decorating so I should be fine.

As much as I cant wait to see everyone, I know I wont be able to drag myself out of bed tomorrow, as the Summer has changed me into a complete night owl.

Considering I actually didn't go on holidays this year, (which I was dying to do) the summer was pretty good.
Heres some of what I did:

  1. Friends birthdays ({me and my 4 closest friends get together and put 80ish euro ( £68.90, $106.73) together to get our friend a decent present for their birthdays }separate blog post coming soon)
  2. Shopping
  3. Blogging
  4. Family time
  5. Summer Reunion '13 (when me and my friends meet up after they all came home from holidy's )
  6. Rhianna concert : Amazing!
  7. BBQ's with the family
  8. Nights out 

  9. Friends houses
  10. Horse shows
  11. More Blogging
  12. More Shopping 
  13. Sunbathing
  14. My birthday
  15. Too much shopping
  16. Cinema with my nephews ( you have to see Despicable me 2)
  17. Work around the house
  18. Roadtrips
  19. Read 
  20. Babysitting
  21. Cinema ( saw the Conjuring with friends,brilliant)
  22. End of Summer party!

What was the highlight of your Summer?

Love always,

Feeling good in your own skin - I challenge you.

Feeling good in your own skin - I challenge you!

Hey there,

I hope your all keeping well, 

today I wanted to do a post on 'feeling good in your own skin'. I want my blog to be about feeling good about yourself. I know I talk about make-up and beauty a lot of the time but as much as I love make-up and trying out new products and looks, I don't wear make-up every day as I don't want to become too reliant on it. Don't get me wrong Make-up is brilliant and its great to wear it, but a break from it has its advantages.

“Consider the fact that maybe…just maybe…beauty and worth aren't found in a makeup bottle, or a salon-fresh hairstyle, or a fabulous outfit. Maybe our sparkle comes from somewhere deeper inside, somewhere so pure and authentic and REAL, it doesn't need gloss or polish or glitter to shine.” -Mandy Hale 

A recent British survey found that the average woman spends a about a year and three months of her life applying make-up. Over a YEAR, all the things that could have been done with that time.Not only that, but going without make-up helps your skins health and clear up much quicker. Makeup is toxic, and anything you put on your skin will be absorbed by your body. Mainstream makeup companies use chemicals that are thought to cause cancer and are treated as toxins by the body.

So I challenge you go out of your comfort zone, go one day without make-up even if you just start by wearing lighter coverage foundation, or going bare faced on a Sunday to the shop. Challenging yourself like this will make you more confident. The first time might be hard but go for it, it will become easier. Beauty comes from within; you'll feel better about yourself and start to appreciate more things in life. Then the whole make-up process will be more enjoyable, it won’t be something you'll feel you have to.
So love yourself and accept this challenge with me and encourage others
If this post helps one person, it will have been worth it.
Leave a comment telling me if you'll do this too.

Love always,

Would You Rather Tag

So I've promised more posts but the computer was broken and then the internet went.
But its all good and my life is working again.

So.. Here we go

The Would You Rather Tag.

1.) Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lip glosses or lose all of your palettes and eye shadows?
      ohh.. That's tough, I'd have to say lose my mascaras,eyeliners,lipsticks and gloss's because I think that eye shadows can completely change a look and give such definition without any other make-up products.
 2.) Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?
Well..I've always wanted my hair longer,but I think if I never cut it again it'd be in a right mess. So cut it all off.
3.) Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?
   Pink ,as my cheeks are naturally pink (always).
4.) If you had $1000 to spend, would you rather buy clothes or makeup?
    Clothes as I'd get more use from it and I already have too much make-up.
5.) Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner, or eyeliner as lipstick?
     Eyeliner as lipstick. Would it work better? I really don't know.
6.) Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?
7.) Would you rather only use one eyeshadow colour or one lip colour for the rest of your life?
Lip colour as I think MAC's Shy Girl would suit any look or season, and I love experimenting with eye shadows.
8.) Would you rather wear winter clothes in summer or summer clothes in winter?
Winter clothes in Summer as this country's too cold.
9.) Would you rather have dark nails or bright nails all year round?
Bright, I rarely have dark nails anyway.
10.) Would you rather give up your favourite lip product or your favourite eye product?
     Lip. I love experimenting with eyes too much.
11.) Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a ponytail or a messy bun?
 Ponytail,I'm bad at doing a messy bun :(.
NYC cheek glow blush (256 West Side Wine),bright nails NYC  Foil explosion(010 Pure Air ),MAC eyeshadow(Tete a Tint).

12.) Would your rather never be able to paint your nails again or never use lip gloss?
 Never use Lip gloss. I hate Lip gloss, its too annoying and sticky.
13.) Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all or sharpie them in everyday?
Sharpie everyday, my eyebrows are a very dark colour so ya probably wouldn't notice the sharpie.lol .
14.) Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish?Without nail polish,I'm so bad at applying nail polish. and i love make-up too much <3

           Love Always,
