Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!



Dear Whisperers,

Merry Christmas!!

I can't believe i made it through Blogmas, it's literally a Christmas miracle. This past month has been so busy but I've loved every moment of it. It's now Christmas Eve and Blogmas is officially over. I was going to post this post tomorrow but i decided that i would finish my Blogmas posts on Christmas Eve this year instead. 

I've also decided that I'm going to take the next week to just chill out and re-group my blogging thoughts, but before i left i just wanted to say Thank You, for not only reading my posts over the past few weeks but also over the past year. This year has been amazing for my blog, it grew from practically nothing into something amazing. My blog turned 1 this year and since then it's just got better and better. I wrote my first sponsored post this year, which was INCREDIBLE. I worked with a few companies on posts and I've just had tonnes of fun being able to express my love to all things beauty. 

Without you guys reading, none of what I've done this year would have been possible. So here's to you. I can't wait to come back in the new year and grow my blog even more!

Merry Christmas Whisperers!

Love,
Soph

5 Christmas Pins I Want To Try Next Year

5 Christmas Pins I Want To Try Next Year

Hey Whisperers,

I'm pretty much obsessed with Pintrest, I could spend all day just pinning things to different boards it's just so satisfying, so today i thought that I'd share a few of my favourite Christmas pins that i want to try out next year. I was going to say this year but lets be honest, there's 3 days left till Christmas and I'm lucky if i have the energy to walk up to bed after work never mind baking or crafting....so lets leave these for next year!

5 Christmas Pins I Want To Try Next Year

I've had these brownies pinned for quite a while and when i saw Erinn's blog post on them (read her post here) a few days ago, i wanted to make them even more. Brownies are some of my favourite desserts so i know that I'd love the taste of them. The whole process also seems pretty simple which is also a huge plus because come on how can i really fuck up a pin that has like 6 steps?

Tree Card

I've always wanted to make my own Christmas cards but i mess up pretty much every crafty thing that i do. When i came across this pin i fell in love, i love the tree's, the little quote and i love,love,love the brown card. It looks like it would be super simple to re-create too which is great. I'm definitely going to be spending a lot of time in Hobby Craft next Christmas.

Santa Hat Cupcakes

I adore baking it's one of my favourite hobbies and cupcakes are one of my all time favourite things to bake so these Santa Hat Cupcakes where a must for today's post. These cupcakes look super simple to make (which is  a must for me) but they also look super cute when they're finished! I'm definitely going to be making these next year....and maybe making a blogmas post about them too?

Frosted Mason Jars

I love the look of these jars! This time next year my room will be re-decorated and these jars are going to match the theme perfectly. I love how simple they are to make (i say that now) and how you can personalise them so easily. Mason jars are also quite cheap to get so hopefully it won't cost too much to make either.

Hot Chocolate On A Stick

I've seen these in stores for ages, and i guess it would be easier to just buy them, but i want to make them. They seem so simple to make and i think that making them will just add that extra personal touch. Just like the mason jars you can customise these so easily to match your favourite flavours, which i love. You do have to mix them with milk, which some people may hate, so if you're looking into doing these too, just know they do only work well with milk.

Christmas is almost over and I'm already planning for next year, whats new! I hope you've enjoyed today's post! If you want to follow me on Pinterest click here, i share my blog posts and i also have a few boards that i keep pretty well updated too!

Happy Blogmas Day 22

Last Minute Gift Guide

Last Minute Gift Guide

Hey Whisperers,

If you're anything like me, you literally leave everything to the last minute (just like this post that I'm writing the day before it goes live), and so today i thought I'd put together a quick Last Minute Gift Guide for you guys. I haven't really based this post on any specific gender but it will probably end up being more female based as i have 0 clue what guys like so i apologise in advance if it is all girly gifts! So lets get into it!!

Last Minute Gift Guide


£15

Can you ever really have too many Pyjamas? I don't think you can. These Miffy ones from Primark are such a perfect Christmas gift, they're super soft and snuggly and they're perfect for this time of year. I'm not too sure if these ones do, but Primark does some super cute boxed Pyjamas, so not only do you get some adorable Pyjamas wrapping them will be super easy. These pyjama's are also super affordable, which is always good when it comes to last minute gifts! So if you're looking for a quick, cute gift these are perfect.

£4.50

I've put Golden Wonder, but honestly, any Lush bath bomb/bubble bar is a great gift. I tend to get my friends 1 - 3 bath bombs every Christmas because they're such perfect gifts. I will say however, some of the smells aren't for everyone so for gifts I'd stick to the most popular products, apart from Golden Wonder I'd suggest bath bombs such as ; Twilight , Butterbear, Dragons Egg and Avobath. I think Lush is a perfect gift for anyone, they have so many incredible products that they literally have something for everyone so it's definitely a perfect thing to get as a last minute gift. 


£18

If you don't get at least one Soap And Glory set is it really Christmas? I love getting sets like these each year, the mini's are perfect for travelling and the packaging is amazing so you can keep it and use it over and over again. I love this set because although you have your usual body products you also get some skincare products which is great.  They do have more sets that are a little cheaper such as the Glow Ball (which i love) and the Pick And Spritz which is one of my favourites from this year's Christmas Range. 


£15

I get a new Throw every year and i love it. Just like pyjamas i don't think you can ever really have too many throws they're just so cosy. This one from Matalan is so gorgeous i fell in love with it the minute i saw it, it's plain and simple so it will go with pretty much any room and it just looks so soft. They do also do this throw in a cream colour, which i love, but i just think the grey one looks more cosy and cute, plus like i said it will go with any colour scheme so it's perfect for anybody!

£10

I love Makeup Revolution shadows so this gift set to me is the perfect last minute gift. You get an amazing eye shadow palette with every shade of gold and neutral shadows that you'd ever need, two shadow brushes and an eye primer. I think this set if perfect for your makeup loving family/friends but also a super good deal for someone whose just getting into makeup because you do literally get everything you need to do a simple eye shadow look and i mean for £10 it's an absolute bargain. 

Last minute gifts don't always have to be stressful, there's thousands of amazing gifts out there that you can grab right up to Christmas. I hope this post has helped you find a last minute gift for someone in your life!

Happy Blogmas Day 21
