Blogmas 2017: Day 7!

The seventh day of advent from the Marks and Spencer’s beauty advent calendar and it’s more skin care. I have to say I think I’ve forgotten half of the things on the list when I first bought this as I really don’t remember this on there. It’s a night mask from Korres, the Wild Rose Advanced Repair Sleeping Facial. It’s a moisturiser that you apply after cleansing your face, I’m assuming it’s a night cream as the name says and it’s supposed to nourish and retexturise your skin. I’m not sure what that means but it’ll be interesting to see if it has any positive effects for me. A 40ml pot of this costs £26 so I think this mini 16ml tube would cost around £9 or £10.

Day 7 of December and we’re finally getting round to the decorating. Unfortunately it is also a day of no internet, it went down around 12 and won’t be fixed for a while so I’m doing this post on my phone, hopefully the photos are good enough quality without editing.

Amazon and Paperchase Recent Purchases: Getting Ready For Christmas

Happy late Thanksgiving to any of you guys who celebrate it and happy Black Friday/Black Tag shopping even for people who don’t. I managed to get a couple of bargains with some clothes I wanted anyway and a big order for goodies from Holland and Barrett (I’ll have so much dried fruit and snacks over Christmas we could get snowed in and we’d be fine!) Have you guys braved the stores or found any bargains online? Or just avoided the whole thing altogether?

I’m feeling rather Christmassy recently and I decided to do an order from Paperchase to get some decorations, I got a new tree last year that’s slightly bigger than the one I had for 12 years and finally gave up on me so I wanted some extra decorations. I also did a smallish order from Amazon, a couple of things I’ve wanted for ages and I might finally be getting organised for my Ciate advent calendar swatching this year, or nail varnishes in general, and getting some nail wheels that I’ve been meaning to get for nearly two years now.

There’s a few things in these orders that are sort of bought with the idea of using them for photographs for the blog so I’m hoping that I’ll finally have a definite backing and some decorations. It’s taken me two years, long enough right?
