The Christmas Eve Box

So this year I decided to start a new tradition for everyone in the house, It’s a tradition that seems to be increasingly more popular every year, it’s a the Christmas Eve Box.



I scoured the internet to find a really cute wooden one that I can use every year.
I had purchased from Lovely Wall Letters before and spotted one on their page, Perfect in size and it was Wooden.
Lovely Wall letters will personalise with any name you like and this Box cost €27 including postage, They are great and can be used for many years to come.



Because Kara is just a little over 15 months, I’m only putting essentials in it for this year.
I picked up some cute Pyjamas in Dunnes Stores, Peppa Pig of course.
Dunnes Stores actually have some great Sleep wear and Christmas clothes for kids this year, have you seen the kids Christmas jumpers there so cute.....

I also picked her up a new Soother Clip from My Retro Kid, As soon as I saw they had Christmas Soother Clips I was messaging straight away to get mine lol, I have a few from her now and they are really great value, and really strong and durable, she also has the option on her website to make your own clips, I actually have not came across any as cute anywhere and they are personalized too.
Karas Soother Clip cost €12, which is an absolute bargain for one personalised.



I popped in some of her miniature favorites for the treat before bed, the wispa’s will be wolfed down before bed believe me.

And a little cuddly toy to bring to bed with her, I bought Dinosaur on Amazon for anyone wondering where I got him.


Next year I’ll probablt go mad altogether as she will have a bit of an idea as to who Santa is.

The Luna by Lisa Jordan Whole Collection


Pic Credit: Lunabylisa.ie

Basically unless you have been living under a rock for the last 3 years you know who Lisa Jordan is.
Well Lisa has launched her own line called Luna by Lisa Jordan.
Now when it comes to buying something that a blogger has launched I am very sceptical about handing over my hard earned money.
So when Luna Launched I pre ordered the Lip Gloss as I am a massive fan of any lip gloss and when you get 4 for €30 that’s an absolute bargain.
And surprisingly enough I wasn’t left disappointed, I expected them to smell a bit like plastic but these actually smell yummy.
The Gloss colours were great and every one of them suited me, even the Amber which I wasn’t too sure about at first as I usually only really wear nude shades.
And the wear is great on them.
So when the Miracle hair treatment came out I pre ordered that also, again for €16 I though this was another bargain.
I actually love this product I’m on my third soon to be forth bottle since it came out.
The Liquid Eyeshadow was then launched, I purchased after they were launched as the first two products were great.
The eyeshadow itself is great, a really smooth application, the only thing I hated was the dark colour I just wish she would have brought out a lighter colour to accompany the Rose Quartz as I found the Midnight Onyx really dark, but I use it lightly on my eyelids on nights out.
I felt it was a bit of a let down for €25 but that doesn’t mean it’s not to other people’s tastes, I’ve seen Luna tagged on Instagram in pics where users have used it and they look amazing, The Darker shade is just not for me.
When the Beauty Bag came out there was a bit of controversy on a certain Instagram Page, people saying  the same bag can be picked up on the Likes of AliExpress etc for €4, but I actually needed a new make up bag for travelling as I’m off on Holidays soon, I actually never saw one this style before and just loved the idea of the convenience of opening it out so you can actually see everything you have so for the sake of €16 and not having to wait months for it to arrive I just popped into my local Sam McCauleys and bought it, and I’m so glad I did, you can literally fit so much stuff inside.
There are also two little zip pockets inside the bag.
When you have all your stuff inside the bag, pull the drawstrings at both sides until everything is in fully, then tie a knot and close the Velcro tab to keep everything secure.
Overall I’m quite looking forward to seeing what she brings out next........




The Beauty Bag





Above we have the Beauty bag opened out, I love the two built in zip pockets.





This is what I bring on Holidays I need everything in here, Everything fits and I’m glad I purchased.
