Topshop Wish List

Here is my Topshop wish list for this month ( November) I might even treat myself to something of this list on pay day. which one should it be?

I adore the knitted bobble hats this Winter/ Autumn as it keeps my head warm and adds to the outfit I feel. I have a navy bobble hat at the moment and would love this burgundy one please.

I adore the colours and style of the top, it is girly and super cute with the collar detail. pair the boots with leggings and bobble hat and bammmm perfect outfit. Don't forget the black leather jacket too.
This outfit won't be perfect without the right lipstick and this one from Topshop which is the nude shade,   fun for a day that does not need a bright lipstick as I tend to wear my Kate moss 107 too much lately.

These boots are a must have, I need these boots in my life and so does Loulabeth. They are perfect in every way and would go with so many outfits, I have been looking for some perfect boots as I am so fussy but these I would love in my wardrobe please!

Hope you enjoyed this post :)

Christmas personalized Gifts

Hello guys!
I am starting my Christmas shopping which is exciting as it is my favorite time of the year to spend with family and my lovely boyfriend and pup :)
Thought I would share with you some gift ideas while browsing to get some ideas flowing and to get feedback on what you thought! All gifts are from  Prices range so check out this website for all the cute presents.

This would be a perfect gift for my boyfriend as he is so hard to buy for and I love buying gifts that you can keep and it has a meaning behind them. I love the fact it is leather and so simple but adorable. 
You can get this bracelet personalized with dates, names and whatever you fancy adding to it.
This product is £45 which isn't to bad for a present that can be cherished hopefully :)
So cute that you can add names and messages on to this, love bits like that to be honest.
You can get women's bracelets and friendship ones too! 

Initial wash bags would be cute idea because it shows that you have thought of them and that it gives it a personal touch to the present. I am one of those people that like things with my initial on it and specially love the necklace Loulabeth got me with an A on it. So this would be cute and perfect to add little bits of small gifts inside. 
LINK £20

This cute locket is simple on the outside but has a lovely initial in the middle with a cute love heart.
This is a lovely idea to show your love for someone and to have something to keep for a long time to remember  this Christmas. The inside is inlaid with copper, which again has darkened over time to a rich, salmon pink. That is a cute idea to have something that will grow and change over time, it is interesting. You can choose the initial you want inside which a lovely touch to a present. This locket is £26 and from here,

 This is such a good little idea and it can mean a lot to someone, super cute idea. 

Little bit taken from the website to explain this idea ''We advise our customers to choose locations that are larger villages, towns or cities as we use lovely old maps and these kind of locations are more likely to crop up on them! We really struggle with places like schools, little farms, postcodes, private lanes, village shops'' 
I love this idea of having a necklace of a place that means a lot to you, it could be where you and your boyfriend met for example which is really cute. Another idea could be your first holiday together that meant a lot to the both of you. This product is £29.50 LINK

Hope you enjoyed this post :)
what do you think of these ideas?

Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2 Film Review

Breaking dawn part 2:

So I thought I would have film reviews on my blog as I love going to the cinema and watching films is one of my favorite past times. I am not good at describing films but thought I would just say what I thought and see what you guys thought of the films.

I was so excited to go see Breaking Dawn part 2 from the day I saw part 1, so this film did not disappoint me at all. I really enjoyed it and thought it was a good way to end a vampire love story, so sad to know it is all over and there won't be another one made. Might have to get the box set soon so that I can watch them. I enjoyed the film and would give it a 8/10 as it was enjoyable and I was glued to the screen which for me is good as get distracted easily. My favorite part was the fighting scene as I was upset that some of the wolves and Cullen's would die, that would have mad it a sad ending but it all mad sense in the end. The little girl played a good part in this film and suited her role as their child, I thought the beginning should have used a real baby as it looked odd? still very good. I don't want to go into to much detail to ruin it all for you guys that have not seen it yet.  Very enjoyable and defiantly buy some popcorn and a drink to enjoy the cinema experience.


I do love Kirsten Stewart and loved her role in the Snow white & the huntsman, thought that was an exciting twist on the classic Snow white. Specially love films with Charlize Theron in it and she played her role excellently. So I recommend that film with Kirsten in it. I do not want to judge her on her personal life either in the films as I have no idea what the truth is behind the magazine but not going to lie love magazines and celeb gossip. I would say to you guys to watch that film too and would give it a 7/10. very enjoyable and defiantly a good one to watch this Christmas when it gets very cold.

Soap & Glory: Sugar Crush

sugar Crush: Soap & Glory

 Soap & Glory's energizing  revitalizing fresh & foamy body wash and bath bubbles scented with freshly squeezed lime. 

This body wash is one of the best ones I have tried this year, it is defiantly my favorite this month and once you use a bit you want to use even more of it in one bath :)
The scent of this is so fresh and smells amazing, it is different to any of the other products and works wonders on the skin to smell amazing all day. This product I use nearly everyday and it is perfect. I recommend this product to be purchased asap! 
If you buy this for a friend this Christmas they will be so happy with it because of the unique smell and Soap & Glory never let you down with their products in my opinion.
The best part is that you can use this for bubbles in the bath and it leaves the skin smooth and smelling beautiful while relaxing. The citrus smell you wont be able to get enough of it is magical. I love anything fruity and floral smelling so this I would give a 10 out of 10 because it is a all rounder, works wonders and smells amazing! no complaints for this product. 
purchase this for just £6.50.

Pulp friction Review. Soap & glory

Pulp Friction: Body Scrub.

This Soap & glory product is my all time favorite, it smells and feels amazing on the skin. It leaves my skin feeling amazing for a couple days, silky soft and feeling really smooth. I would recommend this as a scrub before going to apply fake tan because it leaves the skin with a super smooth base. 
It foams up so it is like a body wash that is rough on the skin but gives it such a good scrub and leaves you feeling super!
The colours of the beads makes it super girly and fun to use, this product you need to get buying for friends or family this Christmas, they will love you!!
I have bought this twice and both times I love it and think this product is the best, specially after a Lush bath bomb and using all my other Soap & Glory products! I do own a lot :)

I love how you can feel the difference straight away and in my opinion beats all the other scrubs out there because it is instant and really gives a good exfoliation. 

I bought this in Boots 3 for 2 and will be asking for more this Christmas as it is one product I will be using for a while and will never hate it or get bored! promise you this :)

It is £8 which is pricey but after using this it will be all okay! :)
Best bet is asking for it for Christmas this year or buying the Christmas packs at Boots, more for your money then :)
I love anything fruity and that smells super yum so this is perfect.

As you can tell I adore it :) what do you think?

Rimmel Clear complexion

Clear complexion: Rimmel 

This powder is my all time favorite, I buy it every time it runs out and have done for a few years now. I always tend to drop it though when doing my make up, probably because it is my favorite product and it sets my make up really well. I honestly do not like not having this in my make up bag because it works so beautifully on my skin to set my foundation and blusher. Blends in the blusher perfect and create a smooth finished look. My make up sets so well with this product and it is only £3.99 so it is not to bad either. As it is translucent, it doesn't change the look of the make up, just sets the make up nicely and the look lasts all day. It is brilliant and is a must for my make up routine everyday. 
This product covers up any naughty spots that I want to hide perfectly and lasts up to about 5 hours!
I recommend you try this product and wont be disappointed  I never have been with this as I keep buying it over and over. I have used the Mua powder but it has a odd smell but works well too if you want a cheaper version. This one is worth the extra few pounds though go for it! :)


What do you think of this product?

Soap & Glory: Rub your nose in it review

Soap & Glory: Scrub your nose in it!

This product I have a love hate relationship with to be honest but will explain why, this product refines large pores and prevent blemishes. It has a special fruit acid formula that feels amazing on the skin when you wash your face with it after a long day of wearing make up. I try not to use it too much as I think it is a product you use about 2-3 times a week and use a different face wash on the other days so that the skin doesn't get used to it and just not work. I love this product because of the smell and how it feels on my skin, it is like a little fizzy on the skin and if you leave it on for a little bit while you bath it feels amazing after with smooth skin. 
On the down side it did bring out a few spots that really hurt and stuck out like a sore thumb for days which everyone will hate but saying this it brings out the 'dirt' from the skin and refreshes it. My skin has looked brighter since using this but I don't recommend to use it as the only face wash for an every day wash but as per it is brilliant product from Soap & Glory, I am a huge fan of them and will continue to be no matter what, I always feel amazing after using any of their products.
Have you tried this product, any thoughts?

I recommend this as a beauty product you need this winter/ Autumn :)
I have a few more products by Soap & Glory that I will be posting about over the next few days :)

Fantastic 2012 Gifts - Challenge

I have been asked to take part in this blogger challenge, it is a fun one so I am glad I got the email.
I adore buying Christmas presents for my Friends and family it is my favorite time of the year. I always think to myself I must buy one nice big present for each person but I always end up buying people some sort of little bits. I love all the little bits such as Christmas gift sets from Boots or socks from Primark! 

Bag: £28 Topshop
Ipad case: £16 Topshop
Socks: £6 Topshop
Owl Jumper: £16.99 Newlook
Yankee candle: £6.29 Link

I will start with the Yankee candle, who doesn't love a candle that smells amazing in the house round Christmas time. The candle can make a perfect setting for a bubble bath using all the lush, boots products you got or it can be in the lounge while you watch a perfect Christmas movie. I defiantly will be buying one for me oops and some friends just because they are perfect.

Ooo that owl jumper would be perfect to keep you a cosy on those winter Christmas nights, I adore anything with an owl on it and this is super cute with the ears and everything. it is simple but an effective present. The person I bought this for would remember I got it them as they probably know I am obsessed with owl things. :)

ahh the Christmas design on socks is perfect, I adore getting socks from Primark or Topshop as I chose these from there. cosy cute socks are a must every Christmas! Don't you agree?

Anything with a mustache on this year has been popular from Lush to chocolate mustaches in Next, It is super cute and fun this Ipad case and I have some friends in mind that would love it. It is funky and would be a fun gift to talk about when someone opens it. 

This bag is gorgeous! I want it and I know that my best friend would love this and the price is perfect not to pricey for the bank balance this year! Super excited to start my Christmas shopping and this will be on my list hopefully :)
I would love to fill this bag with some Lush stuff so it has some hidden treasures in it when opened! super cute too I love doing presents and buying bits to go with it. Love to treat my family and friends at Christmas and as it is my favourite time of the year!

Bring on the Christmas dinner and presents! <3

Kate Moss #107 Lipstick Review

Hello Sweeties!
I want to share with you the best buy I have made lately, which is this Kate Moss lipstick.
Any one tried these?

So I bought the 107 one by Kate Moss as my favorite red lipstick I have miss placed, it was from Avon but cannot find it again so thought I would try a different one. I ahve always loved Rimmel and thought why not try this one as I love the red packaging and it stood out to me every time it was advertised, I am a sucker for lipsticks and I want to buy all of these! I have to wait for pay day end of November to purchase a few more. :)

I am a huge fan of this matte lipstick, it is very creamy and really has full coverage over the lips. It stays on as well for a while and sits well for a night out which is super! I wear this lipstick a lot now and have taken a photograph using my Instagram @abikempen wearing this one which I will post under this.
This lipstick you would have thought might dry out your lips and cause the imperfections to show up, I can tell you it really doesn't it has such a lovely finish to it This lipstick glides on so well and lasts up to about 3 hours which is really good and what I look for in lipsticks, there is nothing worse with having to keep checking your lipstick and re applying more that a couple times while out and about.
I recommend this lipstick it is perfect colour cherry for this season and is suitable to be worn day and night, I wear mine everywhere lately as i love it that much.
The next one I would like to purchase is #110 as it looks super girly and to add to my collection slowly of these I would love a more toned down one from the #107. Personally I love a good red lipstick in my make up collection and this is the one! really impressed by it and will purchase again and again! This is rare for me as I am very picky with lipsticks :)

Defiantly buying more of these as they are perfect, comfortable and smooth lipsticks that last hours!

What do you think of the Kate moss lipsticks?
Do you recommend a certain colour?

Me wearing the #107 lipstick.

Hope you enjoyed my post!
