Stocking Fillers/Secret Santa Ideas | £5 & Under

I absolutely love Christmas, and with it being just around the corner everyone is on the lookout for stocking fillers and secret santa presents. Sometimes it's hard to find little presents without spending too much so below is a range of small gift ideas which are perfect for any stocking or secret santa present and all for under £5.00 :)

Lush Luxury Pud £3.50 - LINK
Pop this into your bath and unwind with this relaxing bath bomb. 

Zoella Let's Glow Candle £5.00 - LINK
This cute and girly candle has a calming and refreshing scent. It has a gentle blend of white wood accent, sweet vanilla and soft floral notes.

Soap and Glory Irresistibubble Gift Set £5.00 - LINK
This gift set is so cute! It contains a travel size body wash and body buttercream in the famous Soap and Glory scent, Sugar Crush.

Topshop Mini Nail Pyramid In The Colour Float £5.00 - LINK 
These little nail polish gifts from Topshop are perfect for a stocking filler. They come in a range of different Christmassy colours but I think this pale pink is so cute.  

Hotel Chocolat Mini Chocolate Father Christmas £2.50 - LINK
As you may already know, I am a massive chocoholic, therefore a stocking wouldn't be the same without some chocolatey goodness :) This mini box of chocolates from Hotel Chocolat contains 3 cuddly Father Christmas in milk chocolate, yummy!

Makeup Revolution Redemption Palette Iconic 3 £4.00 - LINK
This eyeshadow palette is a complete bargain at only £4.00. It is a perfect mix of pearl, shimmer and matte shades.

Santa always brings new socks at Christmas and I do love some good old festive socks to keep my tootsies nice and toasty!

I hope this post has given you some inspiration for some cute and girly stocking fillers/secret santa presents.

My Dressing Table And Makeup Storage

Hello everyone, today I thought I would take you on a little tour of my dressing table. A few people have been asking me how I store my makeup/beauty products and being the neat freak that I am, the one thing that I absolutely love is having all of my products organised into their own little compartments. Very sad I know haha! Anyway, below is a selection of photos of my dressing table and the way I like to store my products, ENJOY :)

Lush Haul Video

Hey everyone...I can't believe it's November already, where has the year gone? 
Sorry I haven't posted in a while, life has been very busy lately with a college course I started about 6 weeks ago and because blogging is something I do in my spare time I just haven't had time to write any new posts. I only have a few weeks left on the course so I will be going full steam ahead with plenty of new blog posts and YouTube videos once the next couple of weeks is over. Hang on in there :) 

As you may already know, I have been a beauty therapist for the past 5 years and the course I'm doing is a teaching qualification so I can go on to teach beauty therapy in a college and become a beauty lecturer. The thought of becoming a student again after 5 years was a little scary but i'm really enjoying the course and met some lovely new friends. 

So, I went a little crazy in Lush the other day and picked up quite a lot of stuff from their Halloween/Christmas collections. 
Below is the video of everything got.... ENJOY :)
