Johnny Loves Rosie review

*I was sent these items to review, all opinions are my own and 100% honest

Johnny Loves Rosie is a brand that creates beautiful pieces of jewellery and accessories that are ahead of the game. They're elegant, unique, and striking all at the same time! I received a gorgeous gold snowflake bracelet, and a magical looking ear cuff set.

The snowflake bracelet is so delicate and dainty, it would look great with any outfit this Christmas. Whether you're dressing up for a party, or staying casual, this bracelet would be perfect for finishing off that Winter look.  It comes on a pretty snowflake card, complete with envelope, which makes it ideal for giving as a gift.

The ear cuff is gold plated, with crystal embellishment. It slips over the ear and sits comfortably. It comes with a pair of crystal earrings. Again this can be worn with an evening look, or can glam up a more casual outfit. I absolutely love this piece and felt like some sort of Elf princess whilst wearing it!

Autumn walk photo diary

Here are some photos I took while I was out on a short walk recently. I don't get out as often as I'd like thanks to my joint pains, so when I do feel well enough it's great. It was a lovely cold, and at times sunny, day. I am so glad I took my camera out with me!

Prestige Flowers review

*I was sent these flowers to review, but my opinions are my own
Let's take a moment to just take in just how absolutely beautiful these flowers are. Stunning aren't they.

This beautiful bouquet is from Prestige Flowers that I was very lucky to have had sent to me. They came in a beautiful gift bag, with the vase, sachet of food for the flowers to enjoy, and chocolate truffles. Also included with the flowers is a great little note telling you how best to look after your flowers, and a reminder that lilies are fatal to cats and can stain furniture and clothing. My flowers arrived quickly, a little bashed due to the delivery man handling my clearly marked 'this way up' box upside down. Luckily they perked up once they'd had some water and the stems cut! The lilies come still in buds, so that they can blossom once you've got them and they'll last that bit longer. Prestige Flowers are easy to order, and are perfect as gifts for birthdays,Christmas Flowers, or just to treat yourself!

Makeup of the day - 7th November

Today I have been playing with my newest purchase, the Only for Unicorns palette from Violeteyes Cosmetics. It has TWENTY big and bold eyeshadows, and I can't wait to try all of them.
Today I used four of the colours - white, pale pink, black, and orange.

Here I used a little of the pink as a blusher. I then used the white shade as a highlighter, applying it to my cheekbones, under my brows, and a little on my nose! It's such a shimmery shade that I found it works great as a highlighter! I then applied the black eyeshadow with a wet brush for my eyeliner. It stayed in place all day, better than most actual eyeliners I've used.

I then applied the orange colour with a wet brush under my eyes to create a nice bright pop of autumnal colour.
 So happy that I bought this palette, the colours are just gorgeous and long lasting. Not only that but Violeteyes cosmetics are cruelty free and vegan!
