Alicia á la mode

My favourite room of the house is my bedroom. Its where I go to do my make up and get ready for the day, where I relax and wind down, sometimes I even double it up as an office and blog from my dressing table. I've definitely tried to make it as cosy as possible, its all white and silvery grey which sometimes can be quite clinical and cold so I try my best to make it super bright and white but with little cosy touches to make it more homely. 

If you haven't seen my first Christmas tree already then click 'here' to see how I decorated the tree in the living room, it's a 7ft tree with acorns and berry decorations, its a very traditional with golds and reds and I just love it. My bedroom tree however couldn't be more opposite if I tried, its silver pink and white, the tree is a 6ft standard green tree which I have sprayed slightly with spray 'snow'. 
I am actually quite impressed with this tree. I have a couple of decorations from next (the sparkly silver ones) and the rest are from garden centres, I have one that my niece bought me from Disneyland Paris when she visited one christmas and that is definitely my favourite tree decoration it has Tinkerbell standing next to a white glittery Eiffel Tower - If you didn't know I love the Tinkerbell movies and I am obsessed with paris (I even have paris wallpaper!) 
It towers at 6ft in my bedroom, I decided to add light pink ribbon this year to break the tree up a little and I actually really like the outcome, I got the huge pink Poinsettia flowers from a Alton Garden Centre which is a huge garden centre nearby that is full of christmas decorations. I took a couple of pictures on my phone to show you, if you can I would 100% advise you to go its beautiful with so many themes, I also picked up a little white and pink house inside a dome and I think they match the ribbon and flowers beautifully.

On my dressing table I have this amazing ornament which my mum got me from The Range, its a cute set of drawers with a silver wintery scene, glittery christmas tree that rotates and lights up and a silver snowglobe sat next to it which its from homesense and inside it has two little reindeer with some snowy trees.

I also picked up 9 metres worth of white acorn fairy lights which I put above my bed with a little tinsel and I have the wall of fairy lights all year round but its still super festive!
Finally, my bedding. This is the cutest reindeer bedding from Asda its not too over the top but it still matches my room nicely and is super festive.

This is my favourite room and I am SO tempted to keep this tree up all year it just looks so cute! What do you think?

I saw Tanya Burr wear one of these lipsticks and ever since I really wanted to try them for myself. I love the packaging that it comes in I think it looks a lot more expensive than £9 although in Superdrug at the moment its £7!

It comes in the cutest purple packaging with hints of rose gold and a pink bow opening. It feels super luxurious due to the matte finish on the box, and I love the bow opening, it would make such a nice present for Christmas, it looks super pretty and the lipstick are honestly incredible. They couldn't feel any more 'Christmassy' if they tried! The colours are so perfect for this time of year, I am completely obsessed with these colours and I definitely am going to struggle deciding which one to wear for Christmas day. 

'Blackberry Fudge'
'Santa's Little Helper'

I am so picky when it comes to lip applicators and I love the applicator Tanya chose for her lipsticks. It makes it super easy to get precise application even without lip liner - which is a big deal for me and definitely handy for when your on the go.
I am in love with the shade 'Blackberry Fudge' it is soooooo flattering and I love wearing it with crisp white jumpers or with grey jumpers and 'Santa's Little Helper' is the perfect Christmas red too! These shades will be great for xmas work deals or meals or any parties you have over the Christmas/New Year period.
I would definitely recommend these lipsticks especially this time of year the colours are so so stunning, such a perfect gift I think.

Can you believe its snowing in the UK?! I really wish I was back in the Lake District taking in all the scenery but I'm not but I am writing this sitting on my laptop with my pug by my side, looking at a snowy scene out my window with some christmas films on and a big mug of tea - and some biscuits! I am so content so I thought I'd write a list of all my favourite Christmas films right now because it seems quite fitted to what I'm up to at the moment and I have or will end up watching all of these!

I decided to do 6 because everybody lists 10 favourites which is pretty easy but I thought I'd make it harder for myself and have my top firm favourites and this was really hard and I'm still not sure if its right, I do love classics like Home Alone and even newer ones like Nativity! but here are my top 6 firm Christmas favourites! 

1. The Grinch

Ah! This film will always always have a special place in my heart! I remember seeing it at the cinema with my mum when I was around 8. My mum was worried I'd find him a bit scary on the big screen but I instantly fell in love with the film including him and Cindy-Lou! I know this film word for word and I watched it all year round the year I got it on video, It will always be my all time favourite Christmas film, It brings back the most memories, the best ones

2. The Santa Clause Trilogy

I love all the Santa Clause films. The first one takes me back to my childhood and they are always one of the first Christmas films I watch in December. The second one is my favourite I think where he has to find a Mrs Clause - So cute!

3. Elf

You just can't beat Elf can you? I remember the first time I watched this film and I was just in fits of giggles the whole time. One of the funniest Christmas films.

4. Fred Claus

Vince Vaughn has me in stitches all the time and this is such an underrated Christmas film, its super Christmassy, really funny and I love watching it. The competitiveness between Fred and his brother Santa Claus is just hilarious to watch and not your typical festive film.

5. Miracle on 34th Street

This film makes me feel all the feels! its just so cute I love all the characters in it and I love the fact that he's the real santa but looks like an ordinary old man but he gets everybody to believe (after an intense court case) and the little girls gets the gift she's always wanted - A family  so cute! I'm sure you've already seen it, if you haven't you definitely should

6. Home Alone

I only like the first 2 of the Home Alone series but they are absolute classics and they take me right back to being a kid, The thought of being left home while my family was on holiday used to haunt me and I definitely wouldn't have coped as well as Kevin! haha.

Those are my top 6 Christmas film, these are usually the first 6 films I tend to put on as soon as it hits December (maybe before) They all hold fond memories and I think thats why I always go back to these.

My last beauty box this year! I still have the LookFantastic advent calendar to continue to open which I'm happy about. 
After purchasing the Look Fantastic advent calendar last year and being super happy with it, I decided to subscribe to their beauty box. Each month in the first week of the month I would be happily greeted with this box. I have loved every single theme and it is such a good price for what you get. I have actually found some amazing brands and products through this subscription some that I have never heard of which I'm super happy about. As a blogger you do tend to stick to recommendations which makes sense because they seem more reliable but I have loved trying out new products and falling in love with products with no influence and a complete unbiased opinion if I didn't know the brand. I have loved opening this every month and I love Look Fantastic as a company and so far have been loving the advent calendar. This box is the same wonderland theme as the advent which I love and I am sooooo happy with the wintery products this month!

Bubble T Limited Edition 'Beauty in Wonderland' Bath Fizzer

I love this! A Limited Edition bath fizzer. Its 'Beauty in Wonderland' to match their theme, Look Fantastic teamed up with Bubble T to create their own bath fizzer which I think is amazing. It has a blueberry tea fragrance which grape extract and I just thought this was amazing to get in this months box.

Gatineau Anti - Aging Smoothing Serum

Gatineau a french brand that focus in anti age products, this one is an ultimate smoothing serum. This smells so so beautiful and it feels super luxurious. I applied this after a cleanse and facemark and my skin felt incredible. I definitely think il repurchase this product.

Polaar Genuine Lapland Hand Cream

The Genuine Lapland Cream' This hand cream is so amazing! It has to be the most christmassy product in this box I'm so happy with this so far. Based on formulations of the women in Lapland! It smells gorgeous it holds a high concentrate of arctic berry extract and it makes my skin feel so soft and smooth. I really suffer from dry skin in the winter so this is perfect for me. 

Ski Exfoliating Foam Cleanser

This is an all - natural exfoliator. I love exfoliating my skin but I hate foam cleansers so I was expecting to not like this very much but it really did get rid of all the gritty feel on my skin. I'm quite picky when it comes to skincare and I have my little routine so I'm not entirely sure if I'll repurchase but I did really like it.

Figs and Rouge Hydra Activ Smart Nutrient Day Cream

I've never used anything from this brand before I don't think. I am loving it though, another item I'll repurchase I think. I'm big on moisturisers and I love nothing more than finding little gems that really hydrate my skin and help me to look healthy this cream helps restore elasticity so you can get gorgeous plum glowing skin thought the winter months.

MDMFlow Matte Lipstick in Shade 'Bossy'

I've seen these lipsticks online and I haven't got round to buying one. This is in the shade 'Bossy' which I love the name and it is perfect for day to day for you boss ladys too!  Its a semi matte finish which is my personal favourite type of finish. It lasts ages and is a gorgeous gorgeous dark but warm nude, it looks dark but when applied it looks like a gorgeous warm nude. Another brand I am happy I have finally tried out this is beautiful and has been my go to everyday nude. It's also really easy to apply because it almost hugs your lip as you apply it. I love it!

I loved this months box. I would 100% recommend this subscription box. I have loved every box I've received and this month especially! After Christmas I'll be sure to post all the products I receive in my advent calendar too.
