Review | Ted Baker Pout & Prejudice Lipsticks | prettylittlewriter

Whilst in boots today purchasing Christmas presents for family members, I came across this absolutely gorgeous Lipstick set from Ted Baker. Not only does it have 3 stunning shades, but the play on words of the novel Pride and Prejudice, just completely won me over. So taking up the offer of 3 for 2, I thought I'd treat myself to it.

The three gorgeous shades are nude, peach and red, and I cannot wait to use them! The red will definitely be an amazing Christmas shade!

My Mac Lipstick Collection | prettylittlewriter

I am beginning to gather quite a hefty collection of Mac lipsticks together, and I thought I'd share with you all the ones I currently have and also my current wishlist of other shades!

As you can see from the swatches,the staying power for pretty much every single lipstick is very good, I used a make up wipe and this was what was left on my arm! 

Now, on to those lipstick shades I hope to get in the very near future!

I will definitely be purchasing the New York Apple one this November pay day as it is the perfect sparkly Christmas shade! 

What is your Mac collection like? Do you have any favourites or any you are hoping to get quite soon?

Top 5 Tuesdays | Christmas Songs | prettylittlewriter

I haven't done a top 5 tuesday in quite a while, so today I thought I'd do one all about my top 5 Christmas songs!

Every single year without fail, when getting up in the morning on Christmas day, my Dad will put a Christmas album on with all the classic tunes and we open our presents. Christmas day would not be the same without them!

1. Michael Buble - Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)

If I'm being honest, I love pretty much all of Michael Buble's Christmas album, however this particular song really gets me in the Christmas spirit, not to mention how awesome it is to sing along to!
I also adore 'Love' at Christmastime, and this is a great example of it! :)

2. Band Aid - Do They Know It's Christmas?

Now I know they have very recently released a new version of this song (which includes our very own Zoella!) however, I firmly believe that nothing can ever beat the original! Christmas just isn't the same if you don't listen to this song, and it helps you remember that not everyone is going to have a Christmas like we will. 
If you'd like to donate to the cause, please go here and help support Band Aid in fighting Ebola and helping those affected by it. 

3. Mariah Carey - All I Want For Christmas is You

Another classic Christmas tune, whether you like this song or not, you can guarantee you know the words! Another great song to sing along too, Mariah's vocals are perfection and it is truly one of her best hits!

4. Lucy Hale - Mistletoe

Newly released by this lovely country angel, Mistletoe is the perfect tune for a cosy evening in with your partner when the weather is cold outside! This song is the perfect combination of country and festivity, and makes me wish Lucy would release a full Christmas album!

5. Shakin' Stevens - Merry Christmas Everyone

This song, to me, is the perfect Christmas song. It is just so 'feel good' and festive, and reminds me of opening presents as a child. This is another one of those songs that Christmas would not be the same without!

What are your favourite Christmas songs?
