Goodbye 2017, Hello 2018

Hello everyone! I did this blog last year and I thought I would do it again this year. In 2017 I managed to accomplish a lot of things. In March 2017 I got a new car, an Audi A3, which I have wanted for a long time. In June I moved out of my parents home and moved into a flat with my boyfriend. As well as travel to Edinburgh. Overall, I think 2017 has been a good exciting year for me. I did also get a new job in waitressing as well. Last year I said that I wanted to ‘move out, buy a new car, deal with money better, cook more food and travel’. Which I think I have accomplished nearly, if not all of them things.

In 2018 I have set myself 5 goals for the year. The first goal is to move out of our current flat into a house. I would still like to rent but I want a garden and my own front door, instead of an apartment block. Then, I could have my dog, Alfie, live with me again. The second goal is getting back into hairdressing. At the end of 2016 I left hairdressing and went into waitressing at the start of 2017. I try not to regret a lot of things but I do wish I didn’t leave hairdressing, just went into a different hair salon. The third goal is to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner. I don’t necessarily want to eat healthier, I just miss out on important meals of the day which I wish I didn’t. The fourth goal is to save more money. I do save money anyway I just want two separate savings. One for when I’m older and want to move to Australia and get married. Another one for going on holiday, new make up etc. The fifth and final goal of 2018 is to travel. I do normally travel anyway. But I definitely want to go to another place that I have never been to before. And they are all my five goals for the year. Also check out my youtube channel – hannahxoxoblog. I hope you had a lovely 2017, and an even better 2018. Bye!

Christmas Stocking Filler’s 2017

As Christmas is nearly here I thought I would share some quick and easy stocking fillers for your family and friends. Some of these are what I’m getting my family and friends as well. I’m going to share with you a couple for woman, a couple for men and a few unisex gift’s. Also check out my youtube channel hannahxoxoblog. I hope you enjoy!


Bath Gift Set:
I think a bath gift set is such a perfect, easy stocking filler. They aren’t that expensive and so many different brands do them. E.g. Body Shop, Lush, Baylis & Harding and so many more brands. The ones I picked are from Boots and one is a brand called ‘A Little Something’. Which has a body wash, body lotion, body butter and a fragrance mist within it. Another one I picked up was again from boots and the brand ‘Cath Kidson’. Which has a hand cream and lip balm within it.

Make Up Gift Set:
A make up gift set is perfect for anyone you know that loves make up. I think they are such a good idea as you can get little mini’s to try out new products and even new brands. The one I picked up is from Sleek. Inside is four Matte Me lip creams. Which I think is perfect has there is such a variety in colours.

IMG_0277
Men Gift Set:
Again I think this is a perfect and easy stocking filler. I think it is similar to the women’s bath gift set, but mens products instead. Therefore, there are so many different brands and so many different price points. The ones I picked up are from Boots and its the brand ‘FCUK’. Inside is a hair & body wash and a body spray.

IMG_0278
Multi-Tool:
This stocking filler is for that handy man in your life. I picked this one up from the boots and its the brand ‘Gentlemen’s Hardware’. It’s a hammer, wire cutters, pilers, nail pull, saw blade, file, knife, flathead screwdriver, crosshead screwdriver and snippers all in one.

IMG_0281
Socks:
It’s such a simple and easy stocking filler but everyone needs sock’s. There are so many different ones out there. I picked some up from George in Asda and they were really inexpensive. I got some with different coloured reindeer’s on each pair. There are 5 pairs in a pack, and the pack was £6.

IMG_0282
Jokey Games:
I think every stocking has to have something funny in it. Therefore a jokey game is perfect. Again there are so many different ones out there you just have to find them. The one I picked up was ‘Cards Against Humanity’. I think it’s just such funny game for adults and perfect for a stocking filler.

Gingerbread Cupcakes

As Christmas is just round the corner I thought I would bake some gingerbread cupcakes. Especially as everyone loves gingerbread at Christmas time. And I just love to bake. Also check out my youtube channel hannahxoxoblog. I hope you enjoy!

Ingredients for Cupcakes:
• 75g unsalted butter, softened
• 100g caster sugar
• 125ml black treacle
• 1 large egg
• 1 large egg yolk
• 175g plain flour
• 1 tbsp cocoa powder
• 1 1/4 tsp found ginger
• 1tsp ground cinnamon
• 1/2 tsp ground allspice
• 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
• 1/4 tsp salt
• 1 tsp baking powder
• 125ml hot milk
• cupcake cases
• gingerbread sprinkles

Ingredients for Buttercream Icing:
• 240g butter, softened
• 400g icing sugar, sieved
• 2 tsp vanilla extract
• 4 tbsp milk

 

Method:
1. Pre-heat oven to 175°C / 350°F / Gas mark 4
2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar.
3. Then add the treacle, egg and egg yolk and mix.
4. In a separate bowl, sieve in the flour, cocoa powder, ginger, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg and salt.
5. Add the flour mixture to the creamed butter mixture and stir until combined.
6. Carefully heat up the milk but be careful not to boil it, and the dissolve in the baking soda. Then add to the other mixture.
7. Line a muffin tin with cupcake cases and spoon the batter evenly into the cases. Bake for 20 minutes or until slightly springy to the touch.
8. While the cupcakes are cooling, you can make the buttercream: Cream the butter in a large bowl until smooth gradually adding the icing sugar and continue to cream until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla and milk, and cream until combined.
9. Spoon the buttercream into a piping bag fitted with a large star nozzle. And pipe on the buttercream and top with gingerbread sprinkles.
10. Enjoy!

December Glossybox 2017

This month’s Glossybox is dedicated to mince pies, starry skies and the brand ‘Dusty Boy’. I love the packaging and the design of this month’s box. I think it looks so cool. It also come with a 20% discount off Dusty Boy and a Raffaello. Also check out my Youtube channel hannahxoxoblog. I hope you enjoy!

IMG_0774
Naobay Equilibria Gel to Milk Cleanser:
I love using milk cleansers in the morning so I was very excited to see that I received this in my glossybox. It’s very weird how it works because as you add water to it, it changes constancy and colour. I will definitely continue to test it out though. The information card that comes inside the box say’s ‘This golden gel transforms into a softening cleansing milk on contact with water. With organic olive and sweet almond oils, skin left hydrated not tight’. This is a full size product and retails for £15.99

 

IMG_0777
Laqa & Co Cloud Lips:
I’m always eager tot try out new lip products. Therefore, again I was excited to try this out. I haven’t heard of the brand either. The information card say’s ‘Encased in this rose-gold delight is one of the best matte lipsticks we’ve tried recently. The high-impact pigment feels as light as a cloud but stays put until the end of the party’. This is a full size product and retails for £12.70

 

IMG_0776
Profusion Runway Eye Collection:
Again I haven’t heard of this brand before so I was excited to try it out and see how good the eyeshadows are. The information card say’s ‘Filled with six bendable eyeshadows, this is the perfect palette to smoke and smoulder with. Wear one eyeshadow alone, blend and contour with a couple or apply wet for an intense liner look’. This is a full size products and retails for £3.75

 

IMG_0778
Steve Laurant Precision Tip Eyeliner:
I don’t normally wear eyeliner that much as I have hooded eyelids and I don’t think it suits me. But every now and then I love to wear eyeliner. Therefore, I am excited to try this out. I especially love the rose-gold packaging as well. The information card say’s ‘We’ll never get tired of a feline flick, but leave soot to Father Christmas! Its easy to create precise, intense black lines with this super fine liquid liner’. This is a full size product and retails for £18

 

IMG_0773
Ecodenta Extra Black Whitening Toothpaste with Black Charcoal & Teavigo:
I have been wanted to try a product similar to this for a while now, and now I finally can. I can’t wait to try it out and see how well it works. The information card say’s ‘From masks to detox juice shots, charcoal is this year’s star ingredient. As well as purifying skin it’s a natural teeth whitener with anti-bacterial benefits, making it the perfect addition to your toothpaste’. This is a full size product and retails for £4.49
