Christmas Gift Ideas for Children

Over the past couple of weeks I have shared a few different Christmas gift guides with you all, with a couple more still to go. So far we've covered the best budget-friendly beauty gifts with my top picks of Christmas gift ideas under £15 as well as a few more extra special beauty treats with my favourite Christmas gifts under £30. I've also taken care of scents and tasty food related gifts, with my gift guide on Christmas gifts for the home. Today is the turn of gifts perfect for children, covering toys, books, keepsakes and even beauty sets that are perfect for the little ones in your life, covering newborns to young children.

The November Subscription Boxes 2015

Subscription boxes have always had a place on Tattooed Tealady, ever since I first started writing this blog back in early 2012. I used to share monthly reviews of every beauty box going, both brands which are still around now as well as those who have fizzled out and long-since stopped business. Over the years the boxes and brands of monthly subscription boxes I shared has gone down, finding myself with a couple of select favourites and ultimately realising that I didn't need to be subscribed to every single box going; at the time it was a good way to introduce myself to new products and brands, but over time it just ended up with me having mountains of boxes and samples I never got around to using.

The boxes which feature on Tattooed Tealady now are boxes which I really do love and look forward to receiving each month. Not just specific to beauty any more, either, but including home and lifestyle boxes which are full with beautiful scented and exceptionally tasty treats each month. Today I wanted to share these boxes with you in a new format; one post a month sharing each fabulous subscription which has popped through my door that month. Let's get stuck in shall we?

Lush Christmas Haul

A well over-due haul, I actually picked up these few bits from the recent Lush Nottingham Bloggers Event, and now that I'm finally getting round to using them I thought it was about time they made an appearance on the blog, especially as I can give you a proper review of how each works and whether I think they're worth adding to your pampering box (hint: they absolutely are).

This Month's Favourites | November 2015

OK who else is slightly alarmed by how quickly November flew by? I can't believe December is just a few days away and then it's officially the countdown to Christmas. Excitement overload! There's a few old favourites cropping up in this month's favourites as well as a couple of new products I've been indulging in. Overall I'm pretty smitten with this month's picks and all are products which I have really struggled to put down.

Blooming Lovely Pretty Silver Bola Necklace

Today I am 33 weeks pregnant. Time is absolutely flying by and I can't quite get over how little time we have left. I know, I know, I say that every week lately, but honestly? It's starting to really kick in just how close our due date is and the nerves are seriously taking over. I'm even dreaming about it, and not always in a positive way either - anyone else wish labour was as easy as clicking your fingers or waving a magic wand? I'm nervous, and scared, and more than a little bit apprehensive. 

One benefit of being so close to our due date is that I'm starting to do the things I 'need' to do at this stage. My hospital bags are almost packed, I'm writing my birth plan, I'm trying to take time to relax and unwind, to remember that although labour may not be a fun experience, we will have our baby at the end of it, and spending a fair bit of time trying to get in a positive mindset. One thing which is helping me to feel more calm and soothed when I find myself getting a little over-worried, is my new Pretty Silver Bola Necklace.

With the final week of November underway, the run up to Christmas has never been closer. I've been talking about Christmas a lot over the past few weeks, but I can't help it. As soon as November 1st comes around each year it's like an alarm goes off in my brain and I can't help but think of Christmas and how much I love the festive season and everything it brings. 

My Christmas Gift Guides are now well underway, having shared the best beauty gifts under £15 as well as some lovely Christmas gifts for the home featuring a few delicious treats and an amazing array of incredible home scents. Today I'm back with another beauty themed gift guide, covering all the best gifts you can pick up for between £15 - £30. With gifts perfect for all ages and covering a variety of beauty needs, my under £30 gift picks are sure to make the perfect presents this Christmas.

Sunday Post #49

It's been awhile since one of my Sunday posts was dedicated to a good old catch up, but after my first weekend in as long as I can remember being at home without any plans giving me the chance to get a lot of things ticked off on my to-do list, I think it's the perfect time for a good old chinwag, don't you?

Soft Autumnal Cheeks

A picture of autumn blushes

If you've caught my autumnal posts so far you'll have seen me share my top tips for making autumnal hues work for you, some stunning purple, red and nude hues that make perfect autumnal lips, how I like to spend my cosy autumn evenings and most recently, my autumn scent library. Continuing on with the autumnal theme, today I've pulled out all my favourite autumn blushes starting from the very budget-friendly picks to some more high-end splurge buys. Blushes and shades which are lovely for this time of year, work with a variety of looks and which ultimately work to compliment a look, with flattering finishes and workable hues.
