Men's gift guide/stocking fillers for Christmas 2014 :)

Eek writing this gift guide has just made me so excited for Christmas! I love giving people presents and seeing their faces as they open them up. I especially love buying for my boyfriend as we usually set quite small budgets and try buy lots of small little goodies for each other. I've made sure that this gift guide has a price range so that it can inspire you for expensive main presents as well as a few stocking fillers or secret Santa ideas! This is the first ever men's gift guide I've written on my blog so hopefully it will help me in years to come when I run out of ideas I can pop back onto this post for inspiration!


Asos Beard Book - £9.99
There's just something about beards. Men love having beards and complimenting others on their beards so I'm guessing that they'd also like reading about beards! This book contains images from World Beard and Moustache Championships so there will definitely be some interesting photographs and reading!

 So I haven't got off to the cheapest start here, but if you're looking to treat a man in your life to something a little bit more special, I love these Daniel Wellington watches. I featured a female one in a wishlist recently as I love both the men and women versions (hint, hint!)

Bjorn Borg Wild Life Trunks - £25.00
How lovely are these floral print boxer shorts? As you all know I'm a massive fan of floral, and I love the colours on these. I think more men should embrace floral patterns, especially on their underwear! They're not the cheapest pants in the world so hopefully they'll be really good quality also :)
Topman Boxed Reindeer Crossing Christmas Jumper - £30.00
You've gotta love a good old Christmas jumper! I love the colours in this Topman one - burgundy and navy are my favourite colours around Christmas time. The reindeer pattern looks really cute and I love that it's presented in a little box.

I know men don't have as many toiletries as us ladies, but they do all need somewhere to pop the bits they do use. I think this checkered one from Topman is lovely. The plaid print is very Autumn/Winter and the embroidered logo is really nice. It looks like it can fit quite a few products inside and would be perfect for those weekends away.
 
River Island Heisenberg Ceramic Coffee Cup - £10.00
This one is specifically for all those Breaking Bad fans out there! My favourite bit of all is that the cup lid is Heisenberg's hat! Perfect for your dads or boyfriends on the go, who can make a cup of coffee at home in the morning then take this cup to work with them!

Calvin Klein Eternity Eau De Toilette 30ml Gift Set - £33.00*
This gift set is perfect for a loved one. It comes with a mens scent and body wash in the famous Calvin Klein 'Eternity' scent, which I can confirm is gorgeous! Why not make the men in your life smell absolutely lovely this Christmas?! :)




 Soap and Glory Men's Daily Double Gift Set - £8.00 
I was so excited when I found out that Soap and Glory were now doing products for men. I am a massive fan of Soap and Glory and I have been for years, so I would definitely buy something for my boyfriend. This little gift set won't break the bank and would be perfect as a little stocking filler or Secret Santa pressie!

 Lush Christmas Penguin Bubble Bar - £3.25
I'll let you into a little secret here, my boyfriend loves Lush bath bombs (Sorry Joe!) and I'm sure yours would too! He would never go out of his way to buying one himself I'm sure, but if I've ever picked him one up, he's never complained! This little penguin bubble bar isn't too girly, has a Christmassy theme and is just so cute! :)

Now you'll only understand this mug if you've watched Game of Thrones, and if you haven't watched Game of Thrones then I suggest you do! It's a play on the saying 'bros before hoes' and crow is a nickname for the men of the Night's Watch because they dress entirely in black. This is the perfect stocking filler for any Game of Thrones fans, and I know my boyfriend would love it! :)

 Paperchase Pack of 5 Panda Highlighters - £3.00
These highlighters make me so happy every time I see them! They are the perfect stocking filler for anybody. Whether your man works in an office and would use them daily, or will occasionally use them once every 6 months, they're such a cute little addition to a pencil case or desk. Who could be disappointed by receiving 5 happy little panda pens?!

Asos Christmas Pudding Beanie hat - £10.00
This is slightly more of a joke present, but if your man or dad is happy to wear a Christmas jumper every year, then why not keep his head warm with a Christmas pudding hat? I think it's quite cute really and the cherry pompom on top is hilarious!

If you don't know what to get someone, get them a timeless DVD. You can't go wrong with popular DVDs and you can get them so cheap online now! The Shawshank Redemption is one of my favourite movies ever and should be in everyone's home! :)

Another thing you can't really go wrong with at Christmas is chocolate! Lindt make absolutely gorgeous chocolate all year round, but at Christmas they have some lovely designs! One of my personal favourites is the chocolate bear, he's a right cutie!

The most obvious gift for the man in your life is pants and socks. These ones from River Island aren't too loud or vibrant, they're a mix of nice Autumn/Winter colours with a nice little dinosaur embroidery at the top.

Last but not least is this Jack Daniels tin filled with fudge. I do love a Jack Daniels drinks and I'm sure that the fudge is just as yummy! This is perfect for a Jack Daniels lover and is pretty cheap too :)



Thank you for reading :)
What will you be getting your boyfriend/brother/dad this Christmas?
I hope this gift guide helped you!
Love Dani :)

Gift ideas for a girly girl: Sass & Belle!

For a floral and shabby chic lover like myself, Sass and Belle is the perfect store. They sell everything from biscuit cushions to unicorn ring holders, and they're all at reasonable prices so they are the perfect place to look for Christmas gifts and stocking fillers! You can find them online at Sass and Belle, or you can find them in their little shop in London! I was lucky enough to get asked to review a few bits from their shop, and I will definitely be adding their pieces into my future wishlists as there is so many lovely bits I'm lusting over! :)


I wasn't actually sure what would be sent over to me, so you can really tell that the lovely people over at Sass and Belle took their time to look over my blog and see what I was into as they've managed to find goodies exactly to my taste! I love a good inspirational quote (I'm constantly pinning them over on Pinterest), and I'm currently turning my sisters old bedroom into a studio which will be full of inspirational quotes on the wall, including this cute little sign! :)

 
 Another inspirational quote in the same style as the plaque, but this was in the form of a little trinket box. I was thinking about using it to store all the buttons I seem to have collected over my years at uni, but at the moment it's being used to store my favourite rings! It makes the perfect little addition to my desk and it makes me smile when I see it :)
 

Lastly but definitely not least, is this cute little floral notebook! As a blogger, you are always jotting down blog post ideas, things to buy yourself and the dates of meet ups so this is just perfect! I love the pink colour scheme and the floral print, and at such a cheap price it's the perfect gift for any girl! I've already added it to my handbag so I'm excited to start using it :)


Thank you so much for all my lovely goodies Sass & Belle! I will probably be doing a wishlist post just of items from their shop as there really is so many that I'd like - especially all their Christmas decorations on the site right now!



Thank you for reading :)

Would you buy your friends Christmas pressies from Sass & Belle?

Cheeky little eBay finds #8

I've found some more eBay bargains recently so I thought I'd put together another little eBay finds post for you guys! I love eBay and it's bargains - I managed to find a few great pieces for Halloween last minute so I was really happy about that :). Whenever I want something, I look it up on eBay and 9 times out of 10 I can find a dupe or cheaper version so it's always worth having a look yourself!


I was really excited to find this top on eBay for such a cheap price as I'd been lusting over ones in Topshop and River Island for between £14-£20. Which I know isn't too expensive anyways, it's always nice to find a cheaper dupe! I'll get around to ordering this sometime soon and letting you know how good the quality is!

I loved these triangle bralets over the Summer season but I just never ended up buying myself one. At this bargain price I will definitely be picking up one, or maybe even a few different colours, to go in my wardrobe for next Summer!

These are the glasses that I wore for basically the whole of this Summer. Up until the point when the main guy from my favourite band jumped into the crowd at Reading Festival and broke them! I have since re-ordered them as I absolutely loved them! You can see a picture of me wearing them here :)

Another dupe that I was super duper happy to come across was this American Apparel style tennis skirt. They come in many colours so for the same price as an original AA skirt I could pick up about 3 different colours! Navy, black and white please!

I've been on the lookout for a burgundy fur stole for a little while now, and this is the cheapest I could find without actually looking too cheap. I'll probably order this sometime soon as I've been wearing my faux fur stoles every day now and I fancy a new one! :)

Everyone has become obsessed with thigh high boots this Autumn/Winter, including myself. I keep going to order them off websites and they either don't have my size or they're a little bit too expensive. I was willing to pay around £40 for a pair but they kept selling out so I ventured onto eBay and luckily I found these! They currently seem to have all the sizes in so I'll be placing an order very soon!

I don't actually know if this lip balm is much cheaper than buying it in other stores, but for £2.75 including postage you can just quickly buy it as a stocking filler or add-on gift without having to worry about adding lots of items to your basket to make up for the postage prices! I haven't tried this in a flavour yet, but pink grapefruit sounds so lovely! :)

OOTD - Winter is coming. A day in London with my sister :)

On Thursday, me and my sister Liv popped into London for the day. We had a couple of blogger events to go to, and we just fancied spending some time together so it was a really fun day. We don't live together and we don't end up spending that much time together when it comes to working full time and having busy weekends, so it's always nice to have a good old catch up day with your little sister :)


Fur stole - H&M
Camel coat - New Look
Turtle neck crop top - New Look
Textured skater skirt - Motel Rocks*
(Get 20% off MotelRocks.com using discount code 'floraldanielle')
City bag - Zara
Chunky black boots - Primark* 


Firstly we popped into the B Public Relations SS15 Press Day which was hosting some of the newest collections from many beauty and fashion companys. Some of my favourites included Missguided, Regal Rose, Glamorous UK, Olivia Burton Watches, Ciate Nails and Alphabet Bags. We met lots of lovely ladies, had a good old browse through the collections and had a few temporary hand tattoos done. 



 
This bohemian maxi dress was my favourite from all of the collections. It will be coming to the Glamorous website sometime this Spring/Summer, and I will definitely be refreshing the page until I can buy this beauty! The perfect festival outfit, it's already making me excited for the sun! :)



 I was literally in love with everything on the Regal Rose stand. They seem to create the most perfect pieces every season and it was nice to get a sneak peak into what will be launching on their website in the Summer!


Afterwards we headed down to a 'blogger gifting event' hosted by Etail PR, where we were showered with some lovely beauty and fashion products to try out, most of which will be featured on my blog in the coming weeks so keep an eye out! It was a super fun event, where I met loads of lovely new bloggers, I got to meet the faces behind the brands and I was allowed to pick some of my favourites pieces from each brand which was so exciting as I'd never been to an event like that before! I was actually having such a fun time that I forgot to take any pictures, but as I said I'll be featuring the products on my blog! Thank you so much again for having us Etail PR :)


Lastly, we met up with my dad in Covent Gardens for a drink. We found a lovely little pub which overlooked the area, and we had the perfect view of the giant Christmas tree. I do feel it's a bit too early to be getting merry, but it definitely got us in the Christmas spirit!



Thanks for reading :)
Did any of the pieces catch your eye?
Are you feeling seasonal yet or is it way too early?

Wednesday wishlist #21 - First of the Christmas wishlists!

As soon as Halloween and Bonfire Night are over, it's the start of the countdown to Christmas in my eyes. Even though I'm not feeling particularly Christmas-sy yet, I am secretly getting excited for the presents, and food, and spending time with my family! I'm gonna be writing a few Christmas wishlist and gift ideas posts, this doesn't mean that I'm expecting any of them, I just like listing down things I'm loving at the moment, and it might inspire some of you guys for your Christmas list. They're also a fab thing to send to my mother as Christmas present ideas! :)

I'm still obsessed with turtle neck jumpers and my collection is growing since last year when I first bought some. I have them in black, grey, cream, fluffy, short sleeved, long sleeved etc, but I actually don't have any patterned one. I love the simple stripes on this, and it would look so lovely with a plain black high waisted skirt. It's quite good value as Topshop sell high quality clothes :)

 Dixi Moon Child Bracelet - £16.00
My collection of silver jewellery is constantly growing but it mostly consists of necklaces and rings. I only have one silver bohemian style bangle that I wear so I'd like a few new ones to mix and match it up! This 'Moon Child' one by Shop Dixi is gorgeous! I love anything celestial and to do with the sun or moon so this is the perfect gift idea :)

I love chocolate orange. Terry's Chocolate Orange. Costa orange flavoured hot chocolate. I just love the taste and the scent, it's one of my favourite things ever. Last year I bought my first Whittard product and that was the white hot chocolate (which is also incredible) so when I realised that they also did an orange flavoured hot chocolate I knew it had to be on this years wishlist!

This is probably the only thing on this wishlist that I genuinely really want. I'll be a VERY lucky girl if I end up getting this and it'll be my main present from both my mum and my dad, but I've wanted this camera for sometime now and it's just been reduced from nearly £400 to £269. It's the perfect vlogging camera as it has a built in flash, microphone and flip up screen, and it's just generally a really good and aesthetically pleasing camera! :)

Charlotte Tilbury Mini Lipstick Charms - £29.00
I've only heard about Charlotte Tilbury recently and now I have a wishlist of her products as long as my arm! You may have seen that I featured a few of her products on my beauty wishlist here, and that included a lipstick. She revealed this week that was bringing out this gift set, which includes 3 miniature versions of her famous lipsticks - perfect for keeping in your handbag!

Dan and Phil Shop Whiskers Mug - £6.98
Okay so which of you watches AmazingPhil and Danisnotonfire? They're by far my favourite YouTubers, I could just watch them for hours on end and they bring me so much happiness! They've recently added some new bits to their online Dan and Phil shop, and I knew instantly that I needed this mug. It's super cheap and when you drink from it you get instant whiskers!

Topshop Tweed Lace Hem Mini Skirt - £38.00
This skirt is such a cute idea! I have quite a few tweed skirts to be honest so I might just sew some lace onto the bottom of one as this is kinda expensive for what it is, but how cute would it look with a little black turtle neck jumper during Winter?!

Lush Melting Snowman Bath Melt - £2.25
So now the Halloween lush products have been and gone, it's time to start getting excited about the Christmas ones! I have loads on my wishlist as I'm sure you'll see as the weeks come, but this little guy melted my heart (that sounded like a terrible pun!), how cute is he?! I'd feel really bad melting him in my bath haha! :)

I've been a fan of Flamingo Candles for ages now. They have the cutest little packages in their square jars with big flamingos on the front in so many colours and scents. I wrote a blog post about some I already own here, and then when I heard they were bringing out a Christmas range I went to go have a look, and I saw that they had a chocolate orange flavour! Oh my goodness, I need this in my life along with the Whittard chocolate orange hot chocolate... wouldn't that be perfect!?



Thanks for reading :)
Are any of these items on your wishlist too?
Which is your favourite pick?

Gift ideas: Pearl Divine triple rainbow quartz crystal necklace! :)

 When it comes to jewellery, I love to buy from an independent handmade brand. I am absolutely obsessed with silver jewellery and especially any that have quartz and crystals involved! Pearl Divine is a mix of the two things I have just mentioned above - handmade and crystals galore! When I was given the opportunity to review one of their necklaces, I jumped at the chance... just look how gorgeous this necklace is!


I just cannot get over how gorgeous the colours are. In different lights, the necklace changes from green and blue, anywhere to purple and copper. I've only worn it a couple of times so far but both times I've received compliments. It's a really statement piece without being too big and bulky, and it really brightens up my mostly monochrome wardrobe! For a bargain price of only £12, it beats most retail store prices, and is so much more unique. You'll definitely be seeing this necklace in an outfit post again soon!

Gemma, a fellow blogger and the owner of Pearl Divine, is a really lovely lady too. She hand packaged my parcel in the prettiest pink paper with heart stickers and included a personal letter she had written for me, you don't get that kinda service on the high street!



Thanks for reading :)

Sunday summary #10 - Halloween, Oh My Love SS15, purple hair and meeting Will Smith!

I've had a very busy few weeks since my previous Sunday summary post so here's a little instagram catch up post. I love writing these posts as they're a bit more personal than reviews and wishlists (not that I don't love writing those all the same too!) but I feel like these will be the ones I come and look back on to see how much has changed throughout the years!


I was invited down to the 'Oh My Love' SS15 Press Day to see their new collection and there was so many gorgeous pieces to drool over! They even had bunnies there to cuddle too, such a good idea! :)
I love their new stickers too, love a bit of sass!
I love that it's Autumn now so I can bust out as much burgundy as I like! I recently treated myself to some new Essie nail polishes and this one is my current favourite! It's called 'Shearling Darling' :)


I actually think Halloween might be my favourite time of the year. At university we made sure we went all out with our parties and costumes. Me and my best friend Courtney carved some pumpkins this year, and I went to a party with my sister and some friends. I left the costume deciding a bit late so went as a skeleton nurse... hopefully I'll have a better outfit next year haha!
I also wrote a little A/W wishlist (featuring Lush's pumpkin bubble bar) which you can read here if you'd like :)


How cute is this little house front? I love taking photos of pretty houses as inspiration for when I someday have a house of my own! I'll definitely be having lots of flowers around the front door!
This is my lovely new Fifi Lapin iPhone case and I'm obsessed with it, it's so cute!
Check out who I met! Okay so the title might've been a bit of a lie, but this cardboard cut-out of Will Smith looked so real in the photos!


What do you guys think of this purple hair? This photograph is actually photoshopped but I'm really tempted!
This week I eventually got my upgrade from an iPhone 4 to a 5c. I don't think I've ever been so excited!
Okay who else watches American Horror Story? I have such a crush on Evan Peters and I'm so glad he's back on my screen every week now :)


My cute little doggie knows she shouldn't be on the bed, but how could I say no to this fluff ball?!
These are some of my Motel Rocks Autumn Winter picks, you can read about all my picks here and don't forget you can get 20% off MotelRocks.com using discount code 'floraldanielle' :) 
This Wednesday me and my boyfriend Joe had a lovely date night. We had Chiquitos for dinner including some yummy Strawberry Daiquiris and then we went to see Gone Girl at the cinema! Anyone else seen it? It was so different to what I thought it would be and I loved it!
 
 
 
 
 
This weeks favourite song/music video is Ugly Boy by Die Antwoord. I've posted a Die Antwoord song previously on a Sunday Summary post but I needed to post this one. Not only are they my favourite band, but this video which was released this week has so many famous people in it I love including Marilyn Manson, Dita Von Teese and Jack Black!

 




Thanks for reading! :)
What have you been up to this week?
Did you have a good Halloween?

Beauty Boxes - The Glamour Beauty Power List 2014! :)

I love beauty products as much as the next person, but I've never been someone who spends their money on beauty boxes. I probably would if I had a bit more money to be honest, but most of them are kept secret until you open them, and the thought of spending around £15 on products that you might not end up using just doesn't seem quite worth it in my eyes as I have more than enough beauty products as it is!


I heard about the Glamour Beauty Edit box on Twitter when other bloggers were posting about it, and I decided to have a little look at what was inside. It is a collaboration between Latest in Beauty and Glamour Magazine, and includes products handpicked by the beauty director of Glamour. What I like about this box is that it tells you what's inside beforehand, so there's no nasty surprises when you purchase it! I prefer it this way so you can decide whether you'll use the products and it will be beneficial for you to spend your money! 


The box itself is only £15.99 with free delivery, and the products inside come to over £80, so for that reason it is definitely a bargain, as long as you make sure you are going to use the products themselves! Once I'd had a nosey at what was inside, I decided that every single product would actually come in handy to me and that I should take the plunge and order myself one! :)


Phillip Kingsley's Daily Damage Defence Conditioning Spray - RRP £7.50
Firstly is this 60ml bottle of Philip Kingsley's Damage Defence spray. You can use it every day as a leave-in conditioner which promises defence from daily heat styling, breakage and environmental effects. It also detangles the hair and adds shine. I'm really excited about trying this out as my hair is pretty dry and frizzy!

James Read Sleep Mask Tan - RRP (approx) £12.50
I couldn't find this exact size of James Read Sleep Mask Tan online anywhere but a bottle for double the size is £25 so this bottle would be worth around £12.50. The product uses ingredients including Aloe Vera, Cucumber, Hyaluronic Acid and Red Algae to moisturise and soothe the skin overnight, and promises to guarantee a subtle golden glow by morning. This is another product I'm really excited to try out as I love to use fake tan on a night out and sometimes your face does end up that one shade lighter than your body so it will be nice to be able to prep my face the night before too!

Eyeko Eye Makeup Remover Wipes
 Eyeko 'Mascara Off' Eye Make-Up Remover Wipes - RRP £6.00
I don't really use make up remover wipes as I take all my make up off in one using micellar water and pads, but I am definitely interested in giving these a try. Even if I just end up keeping them for when I stay away or go camping, they'll definitely come in handy at some point! You only get 10 wipes in a packet which ends up being quite expensive per wipe, 60p each, which I wouldn't buy if it didn't come in this beauty box.

Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanse & Polish - RRP £5.50

I actually already have this product in a full sized version (which is usually around £19.75 for 150ml including two muslin clothes) and this travel version is currently on the website too as £5.50 for 30ml including one muslin cloth. I absolutely love this product and was pleased to find out that there was a miniature version in this beauty box. The travel size of this will be perfect for when I'm going away for the weekend and an extra muslin cloth is always fab! I'll be writing up a blog post on this product at some point as I really do love it! :)

Eyeko Eye Makeup Remover Wipes

Laura Mercier Foundation Primer - RRP £18.50
This product was a big reason that I ended up buying this beauty box. I've always wanted to try some Laura Mercier products out, particuarly this foundation primer. I can't wait to see how this product makes my foundation look as I always use primers but I've never used an 'expensive' one before and I'm really excited to see the difference!

Maybelline Colorstay Stripped Nude Lipstick in 'Coffee Craze' - RRP £6.99
These lipsticks were a bit 'hit and miss' on whether you'd end up getting one you liked because you could end up with one of five! Luckily for me, I absolutely love the shade in my box, and I've actually been on the lookout for a coffee shade like this! I'm excited to try this out as I usually go for matte finish lipsticks and this is more of a moisturising shine lipstick.

Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Mascara - RRP £9.99
This is a full sized version of the mascara and although I'm excited to use it, you can't really go wrong with a mascara so I'm sure I'll love it as I'm not fussy! :) It has a unique brush to wrap around each eyelash and leave you with clump free lashes! I've heard a lot of good things about this mascara so I can't wait to give it a go!

Wednesday wishlist #20 - A beauty edition!

I've been incorporating beauty posts more and more into my blog recently and I'm really enjoying it. Since blogging, my small collection of beauty products has turned into make-up bags and make-up bags full of exciting products, and my wishlist just keeps on getting bigger as I'm hearing about bigger and better things! I decided that this Wednesday I should dedicate a wishlist specifically for the beauty things I've been lusting after recently, as there is quite a few! :)



Bleach London in the shade 'Rose' - £5.00
Ever since Bleach London launched a year or two ago, I've been itching to try out most of their range, but specifically the pink shade 'Rose'. But that was kinda impossible at the time as my hair was a dark brown. Over the months, I've transitioned into a blondie and think that now might be the right time! I've wanted pinky/purpley hair for years now, but this shade of Rose seems like such a gorgeous washy pink colour!

 Lush Blousey Banana Shampoo - £18.00
 When I was first looking in Lush for a shampoo to suit my hair, I was looking for the well-known and well loved 'Big', but after reading into it I decided that 'Blousey' was probably more what my hair needs. It's been made for dry hair like mine and is about moisturising and nourishing the hair, which my hair definitely needs after going blonde, and it smells of bananas which I love! :)

 Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palette in 'The Vintage Vamp' - £38.00

 I have heard ridiculously good things about Charlotte Tilbury products recently and I would definitely like to try some out for myself! I'm in love with the shades in this quad eyeshadow palette, they're the perfect Autumn/Winter colours. The price is slightly off-putting though as I know that I could get another Naked Palette for this much, but the colours are so pretty!

 Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover - £4.99
 When it comes to painting my nails, and then removing the nail polish from my nails, I am super lazy! I like to leave them all chipped, haha not really but that's often what they end up like! I've heard really good things about this Bourjois nail polish remover. You simply put your finger into the sponge soaked in polish remover, twist your finger, pull it out and the polish has been removed! The perfect product for a lazy girl like me!

Benefit They're Real! Push Up Liner - £18.50
I'm a lover of a big old black cat flick when it comes to eyeliner, and I'm forever looking for the perfect product. I've tried thick felt tip pen styles, I've tried pot and brush styles, and now I'd like to try this Benefit push up style. I love their Benefit They're Real! Mascara so I have a feeling I'll love this too! You can get this product for free in this month's Elle so I'll definitely be picking that up! :)

Benefit Watt's Up Highlighter - £24.50 
My next lust is another product from Benefit. I've only really started using a highlighting product on my face in the last couple of years. I started off with Benefit High Beam but it isn't as noticable as a powder form, and then I've been using the MUA powder highlighter daily. I really want to try out this product, all the pictures I've seen where the person is wearing it, make them look so lovely and shiny!

Tanya Burr Individual Lashes - £5.49
I was a big fan of Tanya Burr's Lips and Nails collection, and I definitely want to get my hands on some of her lashes collection now! I've never tried out individual lashes before so I think these would be the perfect ones for me to invest in first, but the whole range looks lovely too!

 Lush Candy Mountain Bubble Bar - £2.75
The name of this bubble bar makes me laugh so much, it just reminds me of Charlie the Unicorn! (Anyone else? No?) I love the whole Christmas range that Lush brings out, and this is just one of many products I would like to try this year! With pink being my favourite colour, I bet this leaves the loveliest colours in the bath tub

 Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Eau de Parfum - £43.50 
I've never really been one for expensive perfumes, I've been more than happy with my Britney Spears bottles (which still get me a surprising amount of compliments), Kate Moss and the occasional fancy bottle of something for my birthday, but this one is most definitely on my wishlist! I first heard of it through Sammi from The Beauty Crush, and I've since been in store to smell it and it's gorgeous!

Yet another Charlote Tilbury product has crept its way into my wishlist. I have quite a large lipstick range, covering from nude, to pinks and red, to dark burgundys, but I've been on the lookout for a 90s brown and I think this one is the PERFECT shade.



Thank you for reading :)
What is on your current beauty wishlist?
Do you have any of the products I mentioned?

Iconemesis - Fifi Lapin iPhone case :)

As a Fashion Design graduate and general lover of all things fashion and blogging, I've always been a big fan of Fifi Lapin. Even if you aren't quite sure what or who she is, I'm sure you'll recognise the quirky little illustrations of her. Fifi is a fictional rabbit who blogs herself illustrated in the latest catwalk looks. She's such a cutie with tall white ears and pink cheeks, and has been named the 'world's most stylish bunny' by Elle Magazine! :)


I actually featured this iPhone case in my massive birthday wishlist blog post last April, so when I was recently approached by Iconemesis to review one of their iPhone cases and I saw that they still had this case but in an iPhone 5 option, I just knew that I had to have it. They have quite a few Fifi cases on the site, but this one with her in 12 seperate outfits was my instant favourite :)


The print illustrations are of a really high quality and the finish is lovely and shiny. The case itself is really sturdy and I was surprised by how easy it was to remove from the iPhone as most cases seem to get stuck on! The 'iconemesis' font at the bottom is a lovely gold shade, I just generally love this iPhone case!
 


Thank you for reading :)
Have you ever bought a case from iconemesis?
Would you add this to your Christmas wishlist?
Love Dani :)

My AW14 Motel Rocks picks and a 20% off discount code :)

Motel Rocks seem to do it perfectly seasonally. Even though not every piece of clothing is to my specific taste, there is always a vast range of clothing that I add to my wishlist every single season. I absolutely love Autumn/Winter looks. The fur, lace and dark florals. This year it includes some two-pieces, tartan and bell sleeved dresses... you really can't go wrong!


Motel Moonchild Skater Dress - £48
(Would be £38.40 with discount code 'FLORALDANIELLE') - I've been obsessed with this dress ever since I first set my eyes on it. The embroidery on the sleeves and the sweetheart neckline is just so gorgeous.
 
Motel Rosey Long Sleeve Skater Dress in Black - £49
(Would be £39.20 with discount code 'FLORALDANIELLE') - I'm definitely going to be getting my hands on this dress. The bell sleeve detailing is literally to die for. This dress is available in a couple of colours and the black version is perfect for this Halloween witchy vibe.
 
Motel Nicole Cami Top in New White - £28
  (Would be £22.40 with discount code 'FLORALDANIELLE') - I've loved bralet tops for the whole of Summer, and I think this white version with a longer peplum is perfect for layering during the colder months. They way Motel have styled it here with some high waisted black jeans would look so lovely with a leather jacket and a fur stole.

 Motel Paloma Crop Top in Antique Posey - £30
(Would be £24.00 and £23.20 with discount code 'FLORALDANIELLE') - As you may have seen from a previous outfit of the day post, I own this print already in a maxi skirt and a bralet. But now I have my eyes on this two piece. If I end up with them all it does mean I can totally mix and match them up through-out the reasons, but I just love this print so much!
 


Motel Jude Kimono Sleeve Playsuit in Winter Rose - £40
(Would be £32 with discount code 'FLORALDANIELLE') - I loved this Winter Rose print during the Summer and got myself a lovely little skater dress. Now that the colder months are here, I'm loving this kimono sleeve playsuit. It would look so gorgeous with some black tights and layered up necklaces.
 
(Would be £30.40 with discount code 'FLORALDANIELLE') - I actually featured this dress on my most recent wishlist. I don't know what I like about it so much, I just really want to wear it with black tights, some t-bar dolly shoes and an oversized coat and fur stole.
 
Motel Rosey Long Sleeve Skater Dress in Cream  - £49
(Would be £39.20 with discount code 'FLORALDANIELLE') - This is the same dress as the black one featured above, and yet again the best bit about it is the bell sleeves. In cream it can be dressed up for a night out, or it could be layered up with a fringed bag for the perfect festival outfit during the Summer. Another definite on my wishlist!
 
(Would be £38.40 with discount code 'FLORALDANIELLE') - Another black garment to add to my already black wardrobe. I really love this dress though, it could definitely be worn during Summer and Winter months, layered up when it's more cold. I love how Motel Rocks have styled it with big chunky boots as that's how I'd wear it. It would look so lovely during AW14 with a big chunky jumper over the top.
