Hi guys, So if you follow me on Twitter (@BeautyByNumbers) then you will already have seen one of these photos, but I thought that I would put them on here in a little post for you guys.

So this year is the first year that I have had a real Christmas tree at my house, which I was very excited for. It is tradition in my family to all go together and buy our real trees from somewhere near to us. On Saturday Me, My Auntie & Uncle, Grandad & Uncles 2 Granddaughters all went to get 2 Christmas Trees, this was so much fun and we had breakfast afterwards and that kind of thing, these 2 trees were for at my Nan & Grandads house and my Auntie & Uncles house. I wasn't allowed to get mine until today because there were still things that needed to be moved around from when we first moved in! (Which yes was in July!!) So instead, Me, My Mum & Stepdad went to get ours today. We had to go to 2 different places because the 1st place (where we had gotten them from on Saturday) barely had any left at all. But we did finally get one and me and my mum put it up. (With help from my Stepdad hacking at the bottom of it with his shark knife so we could get it in the stand) We have also decorated it and everything and I am so happy with how it looks.

So this is our tree! Doesn't it look sooooo pretty!

There also was another reason I decided to do this post because I thought what best time for the first outing of my Christmas jumper, was going to get the Christmas tree.

This is my Christmas jumper! I absolutely love it, it was from the men's section in Primark and cost just £10, I had been looking for one for ages and this was my favorite of all of the ones I had seen or tried on!

What do all of you guys Christmas trees look like? And have you got a Christmas jumper?

Lots of Love

Christmas Party #1

 Hi Guys, I hope that you are all okay, this is a very random post if I am completely honest. I just thought that I would show you all some of the photos from my boyfriend's Golf Christmas Party that was last Saturday night.

As you may be able to tell as the photos go on, I had been drinking a little bit of wine, (not condoning alcohol at all!) *HEHE* I am old enough to drink as I am 20! We had such a lovely time, with lovely food, drinks and company!

My dress was from H by Henry Holland
Chris's suit was from Asos

Have any of you guys had any Christmas parties yet?

Lots of love

Review: The 17 Smokey Eye Palette

Hey Guys,
I hope that you are all okay, I know that I haven’t been around for a week or so but things got a little on top of me! However I am back with a little review on the 17 Smokey Eye Palette. This is free when you spend over £5.99 on the 17 range in Boots. My Nan kindly gave me this because she got it for free. So I thought that I would review it for you guys, 

It comes in a nicely designed black grey and gold box which I actually really like. The actual packaging of the palette is quite basic, its plain black chunky packaging with white writing on, however I do quite like it. 

The kit contains 3 Eyeshadows, 1 Mini Eyeliner Pencil & 1 Mini Brush. I quite like the pigmentation of all of the eyeshadows. My favourite is the palest colour in the palette, which is a shimmery silver colour which I think I will probably use most out of all of the colours in this palette. The other 2 colours are both nice and I think all complement each other to make a good smoky eye look from just one palette.

What do you guys think about this palette, would you consider getting it with some other 17 products?

Lots of Love

What Is Currently In My Shower

Hi guys,
I hope that you are all okay! So I thought that I would show you all my favourite shower products at the moment!

Firstly I have Soap & Glory’s Flake Away body scrub, This big pot is almost all gone and I have used 2 small ones before as well, I just absolutely love it for my legs and rest of my body, especially because in the UK at the moment it is soooo colddd!!! I just love using this and I love the smell as well! 

Secondly I have St Ives Fresh Skin Invigorating Apricot Scrub, this is my go to face scrub! I absolutely love it, I have no idea how long I have used this for on and off! I don’t just use this in the shower, I use it over the sink as well, probably every 2 days. I love the smell and how well it exfoliates my skin! Especially, as I have just said because it is so cold in the UK at the moment!

Next I have Superdrug Naturally Radiant Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser, this smells so amazing! It has Kiwi and Mulberry extracts in it and it just smells so fresh, I love it! I use this morning and night, in the morning I just use it once to clean and awaken my skin, in the evening I use it once to take off my makeup and once to clean my face. Again I don’t just use this in the shower, but I do love washing my face in the shower with this, because it’s so thick and creamy I feel like if I leave it on for a bit and then wash it off (like I do with conditioner in my hair) my skin loves me for it.  

Next I have my all-time favourite shampoo, which is Herbal Essences Smooth & Soft, this is hands down my favourite shampoo I have ever used! I love it because it isn’t a gel formula like most other shampoos, it is more of a cream formula, and to me it just seems to foam up so much better than any others, which I love from shampoo, and also it just seems to leave my hair so clean that I am not having to wash it as often as I was before. This also smells amazing! ( I'm going a little smell crazy today I think) My boyfriend even uses this when he is at my house and he likes it too. 

Next is my Current Conditioner, Vo5 Give Me Moisture, unlike shampoo I have not yet found my go to conditioner, I always try something different, I do love this one though! But I do think I will continue to try others once this is finished! It smells good and I really do think it is a good moisturising conditioner, I really like using moisturising conditioners because my hair can get very dry. 

And lastly is my favourite of all these favourites. Lush Snow Fairy shower gel! OMG it is now December so I am allowed to get excited for Christmas, and this is one thing that always gets me in the mood, I went and bought a massive bottle and just cannot get enough!  It smells incredible, like sweets and candy floss! I love the fact that it has glitter in it too, just gives it that little bit extra to me, but then again I am a sucker for anything pink and sparkly! I know that I am going to have to make sure that I get another bottle before the Christmas season is over! Because I will use this all year round! 

Anyway guys, these are what are currently living in my shower, if you have any recommendations for me let me know.
What is living in your shower at the moment?

Christmas Tag

Hi guys I have been getting into the Christmas spirit so much recently, I have started my Christmas shopping and have been getting wrapping paper and things like that together, so I thought that I would do I would do the Christmas tag to get me even more in the mood! 

1. What’s Your Favourite Holiday Movie?
1005 has to be The Grinch, I used to have it when I was younger on VHS (oooohh) hehe, and I used to watch it so much that I broke the video, you couldn’t hear any sound on the movie anymore, so I now have it on DVD, I am just waiting for this one to be worn out and I’ll have to get it again!

2. What’s Your Favourite Christmas Colour?
Has to be red! It just screams Christmas to me! I am currently on the lookout for a Christmas jumper and I was a red one. I have just always thought that red is Christmas.

3. Do You Like To Stay in Your PJ's Or Dress Up For Christmas?
I don’t actually get a chance to stay in my PJ’s on Christmas day, there is that much stuff that we get up to that I always get dressed up and go and see all my family and things like that. However I would love to stay in my PJ’s all day! That’s a plan for in a few years’ time I think

4. If You Could Only Buy One Person a Present This Year Who Would It Be?
This is such a hard question, because I have a very large family and I buy a lot of presents! But it would probably be either my little brother who is 8, or my boyfriend.

5. Do You Open Your Present Christmas Eve Or Christmas Morning?
We always open our presents of Christmas morning. Me and my twin brother always get up and open our stockings first and then we have to make our mum and step dad a brew and then we will go and open our presents from under the Christmas tree.

6. Have You Ever Built a Ginger Bread House?
No I haven’t! I really want to, I have made Christmas cakes, gingerbread cookies and mince pies before.

7. What Do You Like To Do On Your Christmas Break?
I just love to spend time with my family. We love going to Christmas markets and Christmas shopping and just decorating our houses and spending as much time together as possible!

8. Any Christmas Wishes?
Hmmm I don’t actually know, I know most of my presents that I am gtting this year as they are things that I have been out and picked myself. But i would love a Michael Kors watch :) *Chris take note* hehe

9. Favourite Christmas Smell?
Either my Yankee Candle in Macintosh Spice, I have been nurning this for the last month and I absolutely love it, I have almost finished my 1st one and am going to but some more of the tumblers today! Or Christmas trees, my nana and granddad always have a real Christmas tree in their front room (we are having our 1st real one this year *yayy*) and I just love it when I walk into their house and open the front room door and just get hit with a wave of pine!

10. Favourite Christmas Meal or Treat?
Well, you can’t beat Christmas dinner in my opinion! It is one of the best meals of the year without a doubt! I love everything to do with Christmas dinner! Even sprouts! But I do really love candy canes, and advent calendar chocolate as well!

So I hope that you guts enjoyed this, I tag everyone to do this tag to get you into the Christmassy spirit!
Be prepared for lots of Christmassy posts from me over the next few weeks!
Lots of Love
