Ho, Ho, Ho, Merry Novemeber!


Thursday, 26 November 2015


Are we this far through the year already? Where has the time gone? I have boxed off a fair few Christmas presents already which is super not like me at all and I may even get some wrapping up done tomorrow since I found the perfect paper and supplies.

So without further ado I want to introduce you to my November sponsors.

Baby it's cold outside but it's my favourite type of cold. Is that even a thing? Well it sure is now. When it's too cold for just a jumper so you need a coat, but it doesn't need to be fastened up just yet. You can layer up and leave your zipper open and flash at the passers by.

I love knitwear. I never leave the house without a knitted jumper, cardigan, hat, scarf. You name it I most likely have it. There is something so warming and cosy about throwing on a knit that sets you up on a bitter November day.

As we all know I am one to jump on the bandwagon way after it has left the station, done a round trip and then set back off again.

After hearing all those horror story's about the 'Teatox' tea's making you super slim after a week of drinking a herbal remedy that make the contraceptive pill not work. I was a little bit dubious to say the least. Queue the baby boom of 2015.

Gosh have I tried ever so hard to be a beauty blogger. A whole lotta good gosh at how I have failed in every attempt at this.

I do not like being put in front of a camera. Not even a tripod when alone with an afternoon and armed with an empty memory card and full battery.

I put far too much pressure on myself when it comes to trying to looking good, let alone in front of a camera. However, arm me with a dog and I'm all yours.

When you are baking up a storm in Tea House HQ and you feel like your face will melt off when you are in and out of the oven, it's probably best to go au natural in the make up department. For a nice little date night to the supermarket, yes I did say that, and yes, late night supermarket shopping is one of my faves. Grabbing a 4 pack of pork pies on the journey home is a must.

 Young love at it's finest.

Sometimes I do like like to doll myself up and pop on some glittery shoes with a bunch of nice make up on.

Here is my first 'real' beauty post in collaboration with Feel Unique with my face actually right there staring at you on your screen. Please, go easy on me.


So, I am not going to lie, I wasn't too sure what to do with this little beauty? Was it contouring kit? Was it a nude matt lipstick? No Carli, it is your dream product! It is a Secret Camouflage Palette to help cover those dark circles under my darn tired eyes. Pop it on after foundation and you see an instant colour change. It just lifted my under eye colour and made me feel a little more confident.

Ooohh I just love this Second Skin Cheek Colour. It is the perfect pink shade for a girl like me who loves a good blush. It's nice and light so it's easy to layer up on top of contouring or even just a ping on top of a little highlighter.


Not one for applying products on my skin that make it feel like there is something on it, if you get me. I was a little wary of how this Daily Reviving Concentrate would shape up in my beauty regime. I was pleasantly surpirsed how refreshing this really is. The scent of orange is one of my favourites, with ginger, sunflower oil and tamanu oil making up this radiant product. Add a couple of drops from the pipet to your skin on a morn to make your skin super fresh. I have heard this is a real go to product before I even clapped eyes on it, so yes, this is surely one staple in my make up bag this winter.

I am a sucker for not keeping my hands in good condition when it comes to keeping them soft. I spend a lot of time washing up, baking up and sweeping up that my hands really get a good old battering.

It is one thing that just tends to go on the back burner, keeping my hands hydrated and well looked after. This Richly Hydrating Hand Cream keeps them super soft . I am not one for a grapefruit scent but this isn't too overpowering and I can actually pop it on without my nose having a fit. I will be trying my hardest this winter to take care of my hands a little more.

I love how I have come along the past few months with my make up and beauty regime. I like to make an effort and try and look all pretty,  even if it's just for a football match. You know me Laura Mercier in one hand and pint of stout the other.

I will most definitely be grabbing a a few more bits from Feel Unique this season. What do you think of this look? I am still in love with my Fleur De Force 'Written in the Stars" Lipgloss, it's such a beautiful nude shade.

Murphy also loves it as you can see.

It's time. It's time for another recipe don't you think?

It's this time of year I love to indulge in potatoes. Any variety of potatoes pass me that little beauty of a carbohydrate and get it in my mouth.

One thing that does make you feel better is to treat yourself. Treat yourself and blooming love yourself!

Nothing gets me more in the mood for winter than a good old stodgy home baked pudding,

One of my favourites, along with bakewell tart has got to be a treacle tart.

When I say tea, you say bee, tea, (bee), tea. (bee).

Oh yes, as you can see below I have literally come back from tea bee heaven.
