Last Minute Christmas Gifts

Hey..can you believe it's now less than a week till Christmas?! I'm really excited :)
I've come up with a few 'last minute christmas gift ideas' in case any of you are struggling or wondering about what to get someone with only a limited amount of time left. Whether it's something for a friend, mum or family member I hope there is something in this post that can help you :)

Bath & Body Sets

Soap & Glory Poptastic - Soap & Glory have the best gift sets in my opinion, they all look so pretty and they are also really inexpensive which is great if your on a small budget. I know that Soap & Glory release lots of sets at Christmas time such as makeup, bath & body, fragrances and more so there really is something for everyone and I know that I would be more than happy to receive one of these sets on Christmas day :)

For The Skincare Lover

Sanctuary Spa 'Just Because' Gift Set - Sanctuary Spa have some amazing skincare products, some of which I regularly use myself and love. This set includes a body butter, body wash, body scrub and a hand cream. The whole set is worth £10.50 which is an amazing price as their products are quite expensive sold individually, so you really do get a lot for what you pay for.

For The Makeup Lover

No7 Glamour Cracker - No7 is one of the best brands for gift sets, they have everything. I thought i'd include this one because out of all the others I feel like this one screams Christmas the most. It comes with a mascara & eyeliner. I love this idea of the cracker and it's only £8, perfect little stocking filler.

Stocking Fillers

- Cath Kidston Makeup Bags - How cute are these?! (£10 Each)

I hope this helped you out if you were in need of any gift inspiration ;) Please do let me know if you liked this :) And I should be back very soon,

Byee x

How to: Curl Your Hair With A Straightner

Hey, happy December! I haven't done a hair post in ages so that's what I'm doing today :) I know that a lot of people struggle to curl their hair with a straightener and lately this is all i've been doing with my hair. I've tried my best to take the photos of the steps you need to do to curl your hair, it's always hard but hopefully they're clear enough for you to tell what I'm doing so that you then can try it out yourself :)

1. Start off with a straight piece of hair, it's a lot easier when you have straight hair as the curl can form better and it looks a lot neater when your done curling.  

2. Once your hair is inside of the straightener, take the rest of your hair coming out from the bottom of the straightener and flip it over (towards you) and hold it, like in the picture.

3. (The hard bit) Once you've done that, twist your straightener half way around so your hair is now rapped around the straightener with your strand still in it.

4. Gently pull downwards with the straightener and once you get to the end of your hair, hopefully (after a few tries) your curl will look something like this :)

And then you have to continue to do this to the rest of your hair and it should end up looking like this.
I find that using a straightener to curl my hair lasts so much longer for me than a normal curling wand, I think its because it's direct heat to each part of the hair. Also make sure you use some sort of heat defence spray as this is not good for your hair haha.

You can also leave a few bits of hair out like i've done here to make it a bit more messy, that's just how I wear my hair but there's so many ways you can style these curls. Hopefully this all made sense to you and will help you master curling your hair with a straightener (I feel like I've typed straightener way too many times now). It is hard and I couldn't do it for a long time, you just have to get used to it & practice and then your'll be a pro :)
