Pay Day Picks #3

I’ve had to really watch what I’m spending on myself this pay day as I have a long list of Christmas presents that I have to buy! However, I have set a few pennies aside for the ‘essentials’ that I’ve had my eye on this month...

1 – Bad Hair Day’ Beanie:  I’ve had my eye on this super duper trendy beanie for a while now. I’m literally known for whacking on a beanie whenever my hair isn’t co-operating and it’s great that statement garments are really in this season. You can order them from Amazon in a range of different colours but I definitely have my eye on the black one as it will pretty much go with everything.

2 – Topshop Kohl Eyeliner in Sable : I love brown eyeliners for winter! I think they’re such a lovely change from black and look gorgeous on any colour eye! I’ve been looking at the Topshop Kohl pencil eyeliners for a while now as I’ve heard great things about them and for £4, you can’t really complain!

3 – H&M Midi Rings: I’m literally obsessed with midi rings. I think they’re so feminine and can spruce up any outfit. I’ve noticed that H&M do a fab range of midi rings and I’ve especially been looking out for the simple, dainty gold ones. I can normally get away with wearing XS normal sized rings as midi rings too. They usually sell them for around £2.99 for a set of 10 rings so I’m definitely picking up a stash on Pay Day!

4 – Toni & Guy Limited Edition Shine Gloss Serum: I was first introduced to this product when I received it in a Glossybox and since then our love affair has blossomed. A few pumps of the product brushed through your hair with your fingers is all it takes to have gorgeous shiny hair all day. I normally only apply it to the bottom of my hair as this is where it is most damaged and quite dull. I’m coming towards the end of my bottle and I definitely need to repurchase VERY soon!

5 – Christmas Party Dress: I have quite a few Christmas outings planned over the next few weeks so I’m on the look out for the perfect Christmas party dress. I’ve noticed that are running a #Dressmas section on their website and I’ve got my eye on a few gorgeous dresses so I’m certainly going to have to control myself come pay day!

2014 is on it's way so to kickstart the New Year, I have decided to become part of the #2014bloggerchallenge. The challenge is to write a blogpost twice a month about different topics. The #2014bloggerchallenge posts will go live during the 1st and the 3rd weeks of each month. Everyone who signs up will be sent an email with the post topics. The topic ideas are there to give you new ideas and encourage you to write about things you wouldn't normally write about.

Anyone can get involved, whatever your blog topic! Whether you write about cooking, beauty, lifestyle or fitness. What's in it for you I hear you ask? Well... If you participate in the #2014BloggerChallenge, you'll get more blog traffic, discover new blogs and make friends with bloggers you probably didn't even know existed! 
All you have to do to get involved is email #2014BloggerChallenge organiser, Gaby (from AnotherGirlyBlog) on with your blog URL, email address and name so she can add you to the list of participants.
