Tanya Burr Cosmetics | prettylittlewriter

The Tanya Burr Cosmetics Instagram page have been running the 12 days of gift giving for the past few weeks to giveaway lots of wonderful prizes from gift vouchers, hair appointments to Tanya's own product range.

I was lucky enough to be one of their winners! I managed to win an ASOS Gift Voucher and Tanya's whole Lipstick range and 3 of her new matte Nail Polishes. 
I couldn't believe my luck at winning, and I am so incredibly grateful to Tanya Burr Cosmetics for choosing me for this lovely prize!

I thought I'd share with you the products I have received, and give you a mini review on them :)

The lipsticks all look absolutely incredible! I can see myself using every single one of the different shades, from the vibrant Central Park in the Summer months, to the deep burgundy Big Kiss and vivid Wild Safari in the Autumn/Winter months. 
My absolute favourite I have to say is Big Kiss, whether that's just because it's winter and I love a berry shade at this time of year, I'm not sure, I just find the colours absolutely stunning and I am very impressed in the pigmentation of each of them. 

The nail polishes I am not quite as excited about, purely because I am so rubbish at painting my nails, I always end up smudging no matter how hard I try not to! However, I am looking forward to trying these gorgeous pastel shades, especially with them being matte effect! I find Matte nails absolutely stunning, they are very classy and sophisticated.

Overall I am incredibly impressed with these new products of Tanya's, and I am so grateful to the Tanya Burr Cosmetics team for supplying me with them.
I cannot wait to try them all out!

If you like what you see and want to purchase these for yourself, pop on over to Superdrug or Feel Unique and why not go check out the Tanya Burr Cosmetics Instagram page whilst your at it? There are still some prizes up for grabs, so if I can win, so can you!

Christmas Tree Hunt | prettylittlewriter

One thing I have never been able to do at Christmas is pick my own real Christmas tree. My parents have always had a fake one, which isn't a bad thing, there are some very good things about have a fake tree, including the fact that you can re-use it year on year.
However, this year I am in my own place with my own living room, which means I could finally pick my own tree!

I went to a lovely place called Cotley farm down here in Devon with my niece and her little family. They had lots of animals for my great-nephew to fawn over, including BABY REiNDEERS, and the staff were incredibly helpful when it came to picking my tree. 
I literally had no idea what I was doing or how to choose one, so it was great to have someone at hand who knew one or two things about choosing the right tree.

I had the best time spending the day with my family, 
and I cannot wait to decorate the tree!

Liz Earle's 'The Winter Icon' | prettylittlewriter

Liz Earle are well known for their incredible Cleanse & Polish, and each year, without fail, they introduce the most amazing Christmas scent as limited edition. 
This year they have given us 'Sweet Orange & Clove', which is a deliciously sweet citrus and spice scent. 

The scent is soft and subtle, not overpowering, which can sometimes happen with festive fragrances. Fresh and fruity, with just a hint of spice to create the ultimate Christmas scent.

It works just like the original hot cloth cleanser, leaving your skin feeling super soft after removing your make up. The only difference here is that your face is left smelling almost good enough to eat! I worship the Cleanse and Polish, but when they add in a festive fragrance I immediately love it more!

It also comes in this incredibly stunning set with two of their classic muslin cloths, so it would make the perfect gift for any skincare lover.
For £22.75 and free delivery, the 'Winter Icon' is definitely worth the purchase!

What are your thoughts on this year's scent?
