50 Random Facts About Me

If you can't have a collage of your face on your birthday when can you and as it's my birthday I thought I would do the 50 Facts about me tag as the lovely Lauren from tagged me do it in November. 50 facts seems pretty difficult to come up with but I'll give it a good go. I hope you enjoy the post and Happy New Year!

What I got For Christmas 2014

I originally wasn't going to do this post but I've enjoyed looking at everyone else's over the weekend so I thought I'd get one done. I've preferred just looking at the pictures so I won't go into each item just know that I am incredibly grateful for all the wonderful and thoughtful presents I received from my fabulous family and friends. I hope you all had a lovely Christmas!

Christmas in Winchester

Winchester is somewhere that you just have to go to at Christmas, it's the one place that puts me in the festive mood straight away so on Sunday I took the short train journey from Southampton for a day of festive fun with my fave blogging girls. Mandy and I arrived early afternoon to meet Karis and Tanya and took a walk down to Winchester Cathedral and its world famous Christmas market. Ami met us later on and while we were wondering around we also bumped into Becky.

Christmas Penguin Lush Cosmetics

Anyone that knows me will know of my slight obsession with Penguins, I love the little guys so it was inevitable that The Christmas Penguin would be coming home with me at some point. This cute bubble bar has been sat in my basket of lushness for quite some time because I couldn't bring myself to break its head off. Soon the need of a hot bubble bath over ruled that of keeping the penguin intact so off his head came.

My Little Box by Fleur de Force

When the first few reviews filtered through on My Little Box I couldn't help but fall in love. I held back for a few months though as it seemed too good to be true. Surely the second and third boxes wouldn't be as fabulous? They were and when I saw the first reviews on My Little Cosy Box, I subscribed that night. I received My Little Box by Fleur de Force last weekend and was surprised at how big it was. I was expecting Birchbox sizes so I'm glad I get them delivered to my work place as it wouldn't fit through my letterbox.

Maxfactor Facefinity All Day Flawless Foundation

Maxfactor are the high street brand I go to again and again and their Facefinity All Day Flawless Foundation is one of my most repurchased foundations. I bought this again a couple of months ago as I was using too much of my Double Wear for work and needed a budget foundation that was just as good.

Stop Asking Me to Work for Free

I'm not one for negativity and rant posts on Annie Writes Beauty. I like to keep it a place where I ramble about beauty and generally keep it happy. There's the odd bad review but that's about it. I mentioned in a tweet that I felt like I needed a rant after a couple of emails I had received in the last week. One of which prompted this post.

Christmas in Salisbury

As much as I love the festive period it does get a bit hectic so being able to go away for the weekend or even a day just before Christmas is something Arran and I like to do each year. This year we went to Salisbury in Wiltshire, staying in the Mercure White Hart Hotel. I'd heard good things about their Christmas Market so the plan was to visit that and have a good wonder around the town and Salisbury Cathedral.

The Perfect Red Lipstick

I've always associated red lips with sophistication and elegance, Why else would Christian Louboutin paint the soles of his shoes red? I thought I'd show you five of my favourite red lipsticks from Collection to Chanel, in time for the festive season.

Lola by Marc Jacobs

Lola by Marc Jacobs is my Winter fragrance and has been for the last five years. Around the end of October, out comes my precious bottle of Lola from the confines of its box where it stays during the Summer months. Lola is a heady, floral scent. I find it quite rich which is why I tend to wear it more in the colder months. I instantly associate this with dressing up in warm scarfs and winter boots.

Lush Cosmetics Butterbear

I have been working my way through the Lush Christmas range at rapid speeds lately. I'm a bubble bar girl through and through because I like that they last and I feel like I'm getting my monies worth but with Lush's festive helping I've gone bath bomb crazy. Enter Butterbear.

Cloud 9 Magical Duet

Anything that has magical in the product name is going to get my attention so when the Magical Duet from Cloud 9 landed in my hands I was quick to get to work and make my mane more magical. Having bleached hair means I have to take a little bit extra care of it, something which I hate doing because I am incredibly lazy when it comes to my hair.
