You can usually find me at a gig in the photo pit or shopping for another new outfit which definitely won't fit in my wardrobe.

This is not a 'Ho Ho Ho, I'm Santa Claus' kind of thing | AD

I was very kindly sent over a box full of goodies from Sparkle PR last week and I was very excited when I opened up the parcel - it felt like Christmas had come early! Speaking of Christmas, it's only 59 days away and yes, I know we've not even had Halloween yet, but before you know it Christmas starts creeping up on you and you're so not prepared!

I know it's still early days but I would definitely class these as stocking fillers, I'd be happy with these (or I was should I say?). These products are all mainly aimed at females so their great for if you're buying something for your friends, sisters, cousins, etc.

I couldn't help but break out the pumpkins for the photos so my purpose of this post it more like a 'ooo treat yourself' rather than, 'ho ho ho, I'm Santa Claus' kind of thing.

The first thing that I received was this Missguided Babe Power perfume which is from a collection of different perfumes from the renowned clothing company. The scent itself is quite nice, my sister prefers it more than I do. From the Missguided website, I can see that it's 'top note' scents are: grapefruit zest, sour cherry, pink pepper, pineapple and rhubarb. It's 'heart notes' are: orange blossom, peony and jasmine. And it's 'base notes' are: vanilla, candy floss, sensual music and amber crystals.

I wouldn't go as far as saying that this is a 'love it or hate it' scent because you will certainly like it, whether you would choose to wear it may be different. I think it all depends on what sort of perfume you like. It can be hard to buy other people perfume, can't it? So I'd be 100% sure that you know whoever will be receiving this, will like the scent. I knew instantly that my little sister would love it!

The scent lasts for ages - I sprayed one spritz and it lasted for hours. I saw these a while before I got them and was quite curious as to what they were like and I'm really not disappointed at all. You can purchase it for £28 on the Missguided website.

I was kindly sent these two butter LONDON nail varnished in the shades Tea With The Queen (left) and Royal Appointment (right). These are nice, muted Autumn tones that I'll be wearing all through November, if I can get them back off of my sister. She is loving Royal Appointment - telling me it reminds her of chocolate.

It can be quite hard to find a good nude and brown nail varnish but I am in love with these. You can purchase them from Look Fantastic for £10.05 each (their RRP is £15).

French brand, Embroylisse Laboratories have a New York Limited Edition run of their bestseller, Lait-Creme Concentre which is a thick moisturiser which smooths the skin, also acting as a makeup primer. This is a great product from the reviews I have seen online - British Vogue labelling it as a Beauty Hero (

I am very excited to start using this product. The packaging looks promising and from what I have tried of the product already, I'm pretty impressed. You can buy the New York Edition for £20 from Boots (it is currently not in stock) or, you can purchase the general product for £13 from Boots.

This Fresh Breath Chewing Gum from The Breath Co look great! I'm a huge fan of chewing gum - I always have it with me especially for moments when you're left with annoying aftertastes that get on your nerves. This company have a range of dental products which people love (and apparently you can purchase from places like Superdrug!).

For 10 pieces of the gum, it will cost you £2 from Boots. I was lucky enough to receive a box of 60 so I've got six packs to take around with me which should last a while. I'm looking forward to trying these out - the packaging makes me nervous but I'm all about the quality!

The final thing that Sparkle PR sent over were these Liquid Health Supplements for your skin, hair and nails. I've never really tried any supplements like this before so I'm slightly apprehensive to try them. There are 10 bottles (each 50ml) and you're supposed to drink one bottle a day.

The supplements include Marine Collagen, Silicon, Resveratrol Biotin, Selenium, Vitamin C, Hyaluronic acid, and Vitamin E. These all help maintain the hair, skin and nails. My hair is in desperate need of these so I'm going to give them a go to see what happens!

You can buy 10x50ml bottles from Boots for £29.99 - there are often deals and you can also buy 90x50ml too.

I was spoilt by Sparkle PR and I thank them so much for sending these through for me to try out!

Have you tried any of these products?

Until next time...
