Christmas Jumpers!!

Is it just me who never knows what to wear on Christmas Day?! When I was growing up it was tradition to stay in our jammies all day long and be cosy and comfy. When I met my boy 10 years ago his family always put their glad rags on and went a-visiting and so since then I always am faced with a bit of a dilemma. I want to be comfortable and have room for all the turkey etc etc to get in my belly, but also look decent enough in case there's a knock on the door. I think I have found the solution to this year.....cue Primarks Christmas jumpers!!!
Nope, this is not a joke, we are actually wearing these!! A cosy jumper and a pair of leggings and voila! I look Christmassy but will also be comfortable. Now, I know these aren't for everyone but my tongue is firmly in my cheek here. I have a sense of humour and don't take myself too seriously and I think the kids will absolutely love it. These jumpers can all be found at Primark, £12 for the adult sizes and £7-£9 for the kiddies sizes. I know it's only November but I'm getting excited for Christmas :-D
What will you be wearing? Thanks for reading, Love Steph xxx

Bargain Alert! Eyeshadow Singles from LOOK Beauty

I was browsing in Superdrug last week(as I do far too often), and came across the LOOK Beauty stand. I had never really paid any attention to it before but I read a few blogposts featuring their products for their Breast Cancer Awareness campaign and thought they looked nice! I didn't know what the quality of the products would be like so erred on the side of caution and in the end up I just bought one eyeshadow. At the moment these are half price at £2. Bargain!

The shade I bought is "khaki", I do love green on blue eyes but this is a darker more wearable green which I think anyone could get away with. Swatched on my hand with no primer:
I can't believe how good this eyeshadow is. Really well pigmented, soft and creamy and blends well. It's massive as well so will last forever, and the colour comes out exactly as it looks. I will definitely be going back to get more of these and try out some other products too. Has anyone else tried these, or do you have any recommendations from LOOK Beauty?
Thanks for reading,
