Recent Purchases - Christmas Craft Special

This year, I’ve decided to get creative and have a go at making some Christmas presents and decorations. Over the past few weeks, I have been planning what I’m going to do and I’m starting to get everything I need ready and organised. In the past, I’ve left things too late and its hard to get exactly what I need.
One of the things I love to do at Christmas is a nice bit of festive baking and this year I’m very excited to decorate lots of biscuits to give to my friends and family as they make great presents. I’ve bought a collection of Christmas cookie cutters from a fabulous seller on Ebay who has cutters for almost any occasion. If any of you are interested, their ebay shop can be seen here. The cutters all come beautifully individually wrapped in cute tissue paper.
From Top Left - Angel, Santa Face, Snowman, Mitten, Stocking, Toy Soilder, Wreath, Candy Cane, Bauble, Holly leaf, Snowflake, Bell, Bow, Christmas tree, Gingerbread Man.
There are so many ways in which you can package and wrap these biscuits which I will show you in future posts, including using lovely Christmas ribbons and cellophane and old jars/tins and boxes.
Ebay is the perfect place to buy lots of cheap ribbons and twines, wooden decorations, paints, felts, buttons and fabrics to make some lovely handmade gifts and decorations so I fully recommend taking a look and getting lots of inspiration!
Here is a little sneaky peak of some of what I have bought over the past few weeks. I will be bringing you a series of Handmade Christmas posts to hopefully inspire you to get creative this festive season!

Will you be making anything this Christmas?

My Favourite Autumn Nail Colours

Navy All through autumn and winter last year, I wore navy on my nails, and I’m loving it this year too. Its softer than black nails but still perfect for parties, and also looks great with a glitter top coat. My current personal favourite is No7 Stay Perfect in Betty Blues, which I bought last year.

1. No7 Stay Perfect Nail Colour in Betty Blues - £5.50
2. Models Own In The Navy - £5
3. 17 Lasting Fix in Midnight Sapphire - £2.99

 Berry reds - Nothing beats a classic red nail, and dark berry reds definitely give this go-to colour an autumnal twist. My current favourite is Rimmel Rapid Ruby but there are so many gorgeous varnishes in this shade!

1.    Rimmel Rapid Ruby - £2.99
2.    Models Own Red Red Wine - £5
No7 Stay Perfect Damson Dream - £5.50
Dark green – I’ve only just tried dark green nails, but this colour is THE perfect autumn colour, I can’t seem to get enough of it! My only nail varnish in this colour is Racing Green by Barry M (£2.99, Boots) but I have recently spotted Emerald Black Beetlejuice by Models Own (£5, Boots) which has a beautiful shimmery effect so this is definitely going to go on my wishlist.
1. Barry M Racing Green - £2.99
2. Rimmel Green with Envy - £2.99
3. Models Own Beetlejuice in Emerald Black - £5

What are your favourite nail colours for autumn?
