Boxing Day Sales- How To Survive The Day

Boxing Day Sales- How To Survive The Day



Hey Whisperers,

Let's be honest, everyone loves a good bargain so Boxing Day shopping obviously going to be one of the biggest shopping days of the year, however it can also be one of the most difficult shopping days too.  Between the rude shoppers and the pushy deal grabbers, Boxing Day shopping can be so stressful so today i thought i would share a few of my top tips for Boxing Day shopping, i hope you enjoy.

1- Don't buy everything.


It is so easy to fall into the trap of 'that's cheap i must buy it' on Boxing Day but you probably don't need half of the things you're adding to your basket and although they're cheap they will soon add up at the check out. Only buy things you know you need because even though it may be cheap on it's own when you add it to the other things in your basket that you also don't need you'll end up spending a lot of un-needed money.


2- Plan ahead


Boxing Day is the perfect day to pick up gifts for people for the following year. Perfumes and gift sets are always great prices in the sales so find out ahead of time what fragrances your loved ones like and keep an eye out for them on the day, that way you'll not only get it cheaper but you won't have to worry later on down the line about what to get them.

3- Look Now


Looking  at products that are in store now is always a good idea, it gives you the opportunity to look at and pick out things you want to buy in the sales. I love doing this every year because it saves so much time as i don't have to wander aimlessly around the store deciding what to buy as I've already picked it out ahead of time.

4- Time It Right


If you want to go to more than one shop check the trading hours of each one. It's a given that all the best deals go first so make sure you get there as the store opens to ensure you have a chance of getting any of the decent offers.

5- Hold on Tight


If you like something, PICK IT UP, I've put things back so many times because i wasn't 100% sure and I've lost it. Your loss will always be someone else's gain in the sales, if you like something always hold onto it, you can decide if you want it walking around the store. This way you won't be disappointed  if it isn't there when you go back for it.

6- Home Sweet Home


If you don't want to fight the hundreds of shoppers that somehow all manage to fit into a tiny store, shopping online is amazing. Sit back and browse online, you're less likely to spend loads too because you aren't in a rush to grab everything.

7- Don't try it on


Queues on Boxing Day are guaranteed to be ridiculous, wear layers so you can try items on over what you already have on (this stops you from getting too hot to). You can always try things on ahead of time to to save even more time, this way you'll know what size you are in each store.

8- Be Nice To Staff


Working in retail, nothing is worse than working over Christmas so be nice to the staff, while you're having a fun time shopping and spending time with family they're stuck at work. Being rude won't get you anywhere, just be kind and patient after all manners don't cost a penny.

9- Eat before you go


There's nothing worse than being stuck in a crowd, in a tiny space and being hungry. Always eat before leaving the house or even on the way. Things like cereal and energy bars are a great option. 

10- Don't freak out


Boxing day sales are a lot to handle. You're going to get stressed, angry, annoyed and probably upset too but don't freak out and stay calm. It's just shopping after all.

I hope these tips have helped you feel a little more ready for the boxing day sales this year.

Today was the last day of blogmas and even though I'm kinda happy to see it end but I'm definitely gonna miss it. I want to say thank you to each and every one of you who has joined me on this incredible month. I have loved every minute of it, the stress, the worry, the 9 hour long writing sessions after an already 8 hour long shift at work. It's all been worth it. I hope you all have an incredible Christmas tomorrow!

Thanks for reading,
Merry Christmas,
Love

Blogmas Reflection

13:30:00 2
Blogmas Reflection
Hey Whisperers,

The past few weeks doing blogmas have been insane. I have a whole new appreciation for people out there who daily blog or vlog and even just for people who blog in general. The whole experience has been  incredible and i have put so much work and time into this years blogmas and i wouldn't change any of what i have done for the world. 

Over the past month i have learnt so much about blogging and it's been amazing but at the same time it's been incredibly hard. Everyday my day has stopped at 1:30pm so i can make sure my post is live, that I'm there to share it on my social media and each night my day has stopped again so i can make sure i respond to comments. This past month has given me the opportunity to talk to so many of you guys and it has honestly been incredible, spending 8 hours on a gift guide was nothing to me, i enjoyed it so much but the moment i read a comment saying that my post had helped them, made it just that little bit more special.

If you have been here for a while you would know that i only started blogging in February so all of this stuff was new to me. I never thought i would get 1 read on my posts never mind 100 a day. Over the past month my blog hit 10,000 views, something i never thought would happen. It's so weird to think that people actually like reading my posts. 

As my views have grown so have my blogger opportunists, during Blogmas i did my first two posts on products that have been sent to me and it was amazing. I never thought that blogging would allow me to receive and review such amazing products like it has and i am honestly so grateful. I never really understood how the 'business' side of blogging worked and i still don't completely but being able to work with brands like TASH cosmetics and Naturally Better You has been incredible. 

I guess what I'm trying to say is that Blogmas has been an amazing time for me, i have been able to do so many incredible things and i have learnt so much that it's insane. I am so thankful for each and every one of you that read my posts and comment because it is hard and it is time consuming and hearing back from you guys just makes it all worth it. 

A few months ago i hit 5000 views and i said that when i 10,000 i would do a giveaway. Obviously I'm a little late to the game but i will definitely still be doing that giveaway, I am currently trying to come up with some ideas on what to put in the giveaway and also how to run it so if you have any ideas let me know in the comments down below.

I know this has been a bit of a rambling post but i just had to sit down and say thank you to you guys. You have made December the best month of the year and i can't wait to share more posts with you in the future. I love you guys, thank you for making my little corner of the Internet so amazing.

Thanks for Reading, 
Merry Christmas
Love

What I Got In My Tanya Burr 12 Days Of Christmas Advent Calendar 2016

What I Got In My Tanya Burr 12 Days Of Christmas Advent Calendar 2016

Hey Whisperers,

I've never had a beauty advent calendar, I've always stopped to look at them in stores and pondered getting one but then i usually see the price tag, cringe and walk away. This year however i saw the Tanya Burr Advent Calendar in Superdrug for only £15 (WHAT?!) so i knew that i had to get it. Tanya's calendar is a 12 day calendar so i do understand why the price is quite low compared to other brands however i do still think it is a great calendar. Because the calendar is only a 12 day calendar you can really choose how you want to open it, every day, every other day or just start on the 12th and end on Christmas eve, however if you're anything like me you can't wait to open it so you just start on the 1st. So now that it's the 20th , I'm finally finding the time to sit down and show what i got in my calendar, i did chose to leave it this late just in case any of you are being more patient than i was. This post is also a collaboration with Georgia's Beauty Box so don't forget to head over to her blog to check out her first impressions and swatches of all these products ! 

What I Got In My Tanya Burr 12 Days Of Christmas Advent Calendar

Tanya Burr Matte Lip in Christmas Stocking- 
This liquid lipstick is absolutely gorgeous it is pretty much a true red matte lipstick and it pretty much screams Christmas. It is insanely pigmented and after trying it on my lips i can tell it's going to last a long time (it was a killer to get off) 

Tanya Burr Lip gloss in Candy Cane- 
This lip gloss is stunning, it is a tad bright for me as it is a muted fuchsia shade. I've never tried any of Tanya's glosses but now i have i will definitely be investing in more. The formula of these glosses is so nice they're not sticky or gloopy yet they add the perfect shine. I'm obsessed. 

Tanya Burr Lip Gloss in Berry Pavlova- 
Alike Candy Cane this gloss is amazing. One thing i love about this gloss is how pigmented it is, when it comes to lip glosses they tend to be quite sheer but Tanya's glosses are packed with pigment. This red gloss is gorgeous, to me it is a mix of the other two lip colours as it is a red/pink gloss (pretty much berry coloured like the name says)

Tanya Burr Glitter Liner in Ice Crystals- 
Over the past month or so i have fallen head over heels in love with glitter. I'm obsessed. So when i saw this liner i was in love. It is the perfect sliver liner with fine silver glitter. The applicator is thin yet not hard to use which i love too.

Tanya Burr Glitter Liner in Treasured-
This glitter is beautiful. It looks as if it would be a gold shade but when swatched on the lid it is a gorgeous bronze shade. Although i love the liners i am a little disappointed that tubes aren't any where near full, both of mine are about 2/3 full which kinda sucks. 

Tanya Burr Eye Shimmer Pot in Champagne Sparkle- 
Like I've previously said I'm obsessed with glitter at the moment so when i saw this i was so excited. This glitter is a fine gold/bronze glitter much alike the bronze liner and it is gorgeous. I have used this glitter and I've had nothing but compliments on it.

Tanya Burr Eye Shimmer Pot in Snow Day- 
I don't know how I'm going to use this glitter but i am going to find a way. This second glitter pot is absolutely stunning, it is very fine white/silver glitter and it is incredible. One thing i do suggest is keeping the clear sticker that goes over the opening of the glitter because i didn't with the first one and now the majority of the product is in the lid and all over my floor.

Tanya Burr Nail Polish in Glitter Rain- 
I am in love. This nail polish is the perfect glitter top coat, it has the perfect amount of glitter and polish and i literally can't handle it. Glitter Rain is a silver glitter top coat and it has a variety of glitter in it which i love. I have yet to use this polish but i can already tell i am going to love it.

Tanya Burr Nail Polish in Glitters and Gold- 
This polish is pretty much the gold version of the silver one i just spoke about, yet some how i love it more. I put this polish over a dark purple nail polish last week and i fell in love it is perfect for this time of year and i can't wait to wear it more.

Tanya Burr Nail Polish in Sleigh Bells- 
Wow, just wow. This polish is amazing, it is a red glitter polish with the most gorgeous sheen to it. I'm not usually a fan of red nail polish but i am in love with this one, it is the most perfect deep red shade and the glitter in it is incredible.

Tanya Burr Nail File-
I'm not going to lie i was a little disappointed when i opened this one. Although you can never have too many nail files i feel like they're just used in beauty calendars to fill up space. This file is a cute blue and pink file with Tanya Burr on it.

Tanya Burr Mirror-
Alike the nail file i wasn't really excited when i got this product. Now i do love little mirrors however this one just feels quite cheap which compared to the rest of the products shows. If it would have been an opening mirror i probably would have liked it a lot more but as it is more of a badge kind of mirror i just feel like it's going to get dirty quite fast.

Overall i was quite happy with what i got in my Tanya Burr Advent Calendar. I love the majority of the products and i can't wait to use them all. I probably won't be getting the calendar next year, mainly because i want to try a different brand and also because although i love the products some of them I'm never going to use as i don't tend to use bright colours. I highly suggest getting this calendar if you're looking for an affordable beauty calendar!

I hope you've enjoyed this post. Did you get a beauty calendar this year if so let me know if you liked it or not?

Don't forget to head over to Georgia's blog to see the makeup look she created using these products

An angel, I'm not too sure why because I'm not at all religious I've just always had and angel on the top of my tree

Santa Baby by Ariana Grande. I don't know why i chose this song but it was the first song to pop into my head, it's so fun and catchy. 

5. Is Your Tree Real or Fake?

Fake. I've always wanted a real tree but I'm yet to have had one.

Birmingham German Market 2016

Birmingham German Market 2016




Hey Whisperers,

Christmas for me isn't complete without a trip to the Birmingham German Market, so of course Blogmas wouldn't be complete without a post about it too. I've been going to the market since i was a little , every year me and my family walk around bundled up in our jumpers and jackets admiring all the amazing things on the stalls. There's just something about the hustle and bustle of it all that makes me feel so festive. Between the stalls filled with delicate glass ornaments and toys, the food at the market is incredible. There's pretty much everything there, if you live close to Birmingham I highly suggest making the trip because it's definitely worth it. If i talked about each thing i saw and loved we would be here forever, so i hope you enjoy this photo's from my night at the market.

Chocolate Cornflake Christmas Puddings

13:30:00 0
Chocolate Cornflake Christmas Puddings


Hey Whisperers,

Remember when you were little and you stood in line in the dinner hall at school with your sights set on those perfect chocolate cornflake hedgehogs? Yeah me too. My mom works in a school and a few weeks ago she was talking about how all of the desserts have changed and all i could think about was those perfectly chocolate pieces of heaven..so i found a recipe for them.

I've tried them out a few times and I've finally changed the recipe to make them taste as amazing as they used to. Because it is blogmas i thought i would add a Christmas twist to them but obviously you can skip the extra steps and keep them plain too! So here's my recipe for chocolate cornflake Christmas puddings. 


❄ What You'll Need ❄

200g Golden Syrup
100g Margarine 
30g Cocoa Powder
100g Cornflakes
130g White Chocolate
Holly and Berry Sprinkles

Saucepan
Wooden Spoon
Silicone Spatula
Metal Spoon
Ice cream Scoop
Mixing Bowl
Small Glass Bowl


🎅Lets Bake🎅


First things first, measure out your golden syrup, margarine and cocoa powder. Once you've measured them all out melt butter and golden syrup in a saucepan until they are fully combined. One they are fully combined mix in your cocoa powder and mix well.


Measure out your cornflakes while your mixture cools. Once your mixture has cooled a little pour it over your cornflakes and mix well. At this point i usually add extra cornflakes as the mixture is quite runny. 


Once your cornflakes are completely covered pack them into an ice cream scoop using a spoon pressing down so they're completely packed in. Then turn your scoop over and allow the mixture to fall onto the tray. Once all of your domes have been made put them in the fridge to set.


While your domes are in the fridge melt your white chocolate in the microwave in 30 second increments. Once your chocolate is melted bring your domes out of the fridge and drizzle your chocolate on top of your domes to make them look like little Christmas puddings. Then add your holly and berry sprinkles on top, using two leaves and two berries per pudding. Put these back in the fridge to completely harden,


Once your puddings have completely hardened transfer them to a plate and serve. You can eat these alone or cover them in a layer of hot custard (believe me it sounds strange but it tastes incredible). 


So that was my quick and easy chocolate cornflake Christmas pudding recipe! I hope you've enjoyed this post!

If you try this recipe at home don't forget to send me a picture on twitter @Planetwhispers

Naturally Better You - Beauty Without Cruelty Lipstick Review

13:30:00 8
Naturally Better You - Beauty Without Cruelty Lipstick Review
Hey Whisperers,

A few weeks ago i was introduced to a website called Social Berry where you can apply to work with brands on different products (let me know if you want me to do a post on Social Berry), one brand i found on the site called Naturally Better You stood out to me a lot so I applied to review one of their products and i was chosen. So today i will be talking to you about he BWC Lipstick which Naturally Better You kindly sent me to review.



Naturally Better You.


Now to start off this post i wanted to talk a little about Naturally Better You because I'm pretty much in love with them. Naturally Better You is an all natural company that sells completely natural products on their online store. I know a lot of bloggers rave on about the companies that they have been sent things by but i honestly do love Naturally Better You, their website is probably the easiest website I've ever used and their customer service team is incredibly nice. Naturally Better You, alike other retailers such as Superdrug and Boots has a loyalty service which i love because you get back when you spend which lets be honest is always a good thing. Their website is also so easy to use, they have so many different categories that help you find things suited to you and they also have a Christmas inspiration page at the moment with loads of ideas for Christmas which is amazing because if you're anything like me it's the week before Christmas and you still have a whole load of gifts still to buy. 


Beauty Without Cruelty Natural Infusion Moisturising Lipstick

This BWC lipstick is an all natural lipstick made up of natural/organic waxes and it feels amazing. I honestly didn't know what to expect from this lipstick because i have never tried an all natural lipstick before (not that i know of anyway), however i was pleasantly surprised.  This lipstick is so moisturising on the lips yet it isn't overly soft so you don't feel like you're wearing a lip balm, when you first apply it it does feel quite hard but after it's been on the lips for a few seconds it becomes so soft and smooth.  The shade i got is called Paprika and the pigmentation in it is amazing, i don't really know why i was expecting this lipstick to be sheer but it definitely isn't. The packaging on this lipstick is also gorgeous, the white detail on the tube makes it look so elegant and high end which for £9.95 is amazing. Something i also love about this product is that it doesn't really have a scent, although i do love my cupcake smelling lipsticks i always wonder what they've actually put in them to make them smell that way and with this lipstick i don't have to worry about that. 



That colour though. When i got this lipstick i wasn't too sure about the colour, because as you guys know i am obsessed with my dark lip colours but this colour is gorgeous, it's definitely more of a orange/pink on the lips which is a new colour for me. However i do love the glitter and shimmer in this lipstick as it adds just a little extra to the natural colour. I've been wearing it quite a lot since i received it around a week a go and i am completely in love with it, it's perfect for everyday wear and I've loved wearing it to work where I've received so many compliments on it.

Overall i am in love with the Beauty Without Cruelty lipstick and I'm even more in love with Naturally Better You. It is so hard to find natural beauty products so having a website full of them is amazing.

I hope you've enjoyed this post, have you got a favourite all natural brand?

Merry Christmas

My December Playlist

13:30:00 0
My December Playlist
Hey Whisperers,

So as I'm doing Blogmas ( i hope you've been enjoying it so far), I haven't been doing my normal Song of The Week posts, so today i thought i would share what songs I've been loving so far this month instead! 

MY DECEMBER PLAYLIST


This song my Noah Cyrus and Labrinth is pretty much all I've been my go to song over the past few weeks. There's just something about the beat, lyrics and emotion in this song that just makes it so perfect. I love Noah's voice to it's just so raw and real, I'm pretty much obsessed with her. 


I don't know what it is about this song but it just reminds me so much of when i was younger. When i first saw this song uploaded on Shannons Channel i was a little sceptical of how it was going to sound but i pretty much fell in love the minute i listened to it. I am in love with Shannon's voice it's just so calming. I also love the story of this video it just adds so much more to the song (PS: please tell me I'm not the only one who thinks she looks like Elsa in the last scene).


I first heard this song when i watched the movie Angus Thongs and Perfect Snogging years ago and I've loved it every since. It's such a catchy, fun and honest song that you can't help but sing along too. I love Lenka's voice, it's just so soft and it just makes the song so much more innocent. 


I don't know what's going on with my music taste this month but I'm in love with so many different songs. I'm pretty sure everyone has heard Jolene, it's a classic, but for some reason this past 2 month's I've fell in love with it and i pretty much listen to it daily, much to my families dismay ( i can't help singing along to it OK? it is pretty much made to be a sing along song). This song was also recently covered by Dolly herself and Pentatonix which i also love link here.



I pretty much fell in love with Tom Jones when he started as a judge on the Voice and I've loved him since. This song is for sure one of my go to happy songs, it's just so happy and fun. This is another song my family is fed up of listening to, i just can't help loving it though.


This song is pretty much forever going to be one of my favourite movie songs ever. If you haven't seen the film LOL the song probably won't make too much sense to you but honestly it's just such a beautiful song even without the movie plot. It's so catchy and beautiful that i can't not love it.



This song is incredible. I don't know why i chose to listen to this song again but I've pretty much been obsessed with it since. It's pretty much the complete opposite of any of the other songs I've been listening to this month but I'm in love with it. They lyrics of this song for me are just so perfect and powerful. I know it's definitely not everyone's cup of tea, but I'm pretty much obsessed.



This song for me is a major throwback, i remember being back in Year 11 and loving this band so much, so much that i literally wouldn't listen to anything else but them. Artist Vs Poet are an amazing band and this song is one of my all time favourite songs by them so when it came up on my suggested videos this week i couldn't not listen to it and now... I'm pretty much back to year 11 me, I'm obsessed again.

Pop, Rock Country, I'm pretty sure my playlist has them all this month it's pretty much all over the place but for some reason this month I've fell in love with so many different songs. 

I hope you've enjoyed this post, what's your favourite song this week? Let me know in the comments below.

Christmas Jumper Wishlist 2016
Hey Whisperers,

So something i am totally obsessed with at this time of year is Christmas jumpers. I wear them to work, at home, everywhere they're just so cosy and warm. Over the past few weeks I've found so many Christmas jumpers that I've loved but decided not to buy (I've got to be kind to my bank account sometimes) and so i thought i would share them with you!

TASH Cosmetics Fiber Fused Mascara Review

13:30:00 0
TASH Cosmetics Fiber Fused Mascara Review
Hey Whisperers,

So a few weeks ago i saw a tweet on twitter from a company called TASH Cosmetics asking people to get in touch to try out their mascara, so i did. I didn't really think they would get back to me, being a small blogger you tend to get over looked by companies as they're looking for blogs with a bigger audience but TASH Cosmetics got back to me straight away and said they'd love to send me the mascara to try. Obviously i knew i had to write a blog post on this not only because they sent it me and it would be a total dick move not to, but also because this mascara is incredible. So after that way too long intro, lets get into the post. 


What is TASH Cosmetics


TASH Cosmetics is a cosmetic company that makes hand made to order, paraben free, cruelty free, hypoallergenic, organic and natural makeup and skincare. They are based in California USA and they create a wide variety of both makeup and skincare. They believe in creating makeup and skincare that doesn't clog the pores with damaging chemicals and un-natural ingredients. I have loved working with them to bring you this post, they have the best customer service i have ever used and it has honestly an amazing experience . Now that you know about the company lets move on to what you really came here to read, the review.

Let's Talk Packaging 

The packaging of this mascara is pretty basic but i kind of love it. So many companies make their packaging so bold and out there that it's nice to just have a classic plain design. Something i noticed straight away from this mascara was the weight, strange i know, but it really is quite heavy which i love. Most other mascaras I've tried (I've tried a lot, probably too many) have been so light and the packaging has been flimsy but this one is so heavy and well made. I know that the sound of a heavy mascara is weird but when applying it makes it way easier because the wand doesn't out weigh the handle and it balances so well.



The wand itself is pretty much the standard mascara wand, it holds the perfect amount of product so that your lashes don't become clumpy and spider like. As you can see in the picture the fibers in the mascara cling well to the brush which is great as I've heard of quite a few people getting fiber mascaras in their eyes which is never a good thing.. When applying the mascara it doesn't feel as if it is tugging at my lashes which other fiber mascaras I've tried have done, instead it just combs through the lashes smoothly and applies an even coat of the product. The wand does have smaller bristles in the centre creating a kind of hourglass shape making it so easy to apply to the lashes. 
  

The Results 



As you can see without mascara my lashes are pretty much none existent and the ones that are there lay completely 'flat' with no curl at all. After applying the mascara however my lashes were separated lengthened and volumised. Because the mascara itself is made up of fibers, it adds a little extra to your lashes without making them look too clumpy which is hard to find in a regular mascara. The mascara is very pigmented and definitely a true black colour which i love as a lot of other black mascara's look quite dull and grey instead of a true black colour. I chose not to apply eyeliner for these pictures just so you could see how bold the lashes are on their own. 

I am honestly in love with this mascara, it gives such a natural look to my lashes and it makes them look so dark and long which is amazing. I want to thank TASH cosmetics for sending me this product and for the great customer service they have provided over the past few weeks.

 To get this product click here, you honestly won't regret it. For $20 the quality of this product is honestly incredible and i highly recommend it, i know a lot of bloggers push things on their readers and lie just to receive free things but i want you guys to know that i would never let you guys know about anything if i didn't love it myself. I have loved working with TASH Cosmetics and it has been nothing but an amazing learning opportunity!

I hope you guys have enjoyed this post! Let me know down below what you think of the results!

Thanks for Reading,
Merry Christmas,
Love
