I'm back!

Hello everyone, guess what? I am back!
I am coming back to the blogging world. I kind of vanished at the start of December and to be honest with you all I am not sure why, I just couldn't be bothered writing up posts or anything. I am going to start blogging again as of now but I am not going to have a schedule or anything just yet as I have some exciting times coming ahead of me so I want to get into a routine with that then work out my blog around that.
I do have some posts that I want to do but I am also up for suggestions if there is any posts that you would like to see on here.
Thanks for all sticking by me on here whilst iv been away!

What makes Christmas?

Hi everyone so for my post today I am going to be doing the 'What makes Christmas?' TAG. This was created by Becky who blogs over at The Little Blog of Beauty. When I seen her post on this I thought I just had to do it as I haven't really got that many Christmas themed posts for this month so far. I have used the picture from Becky's blog for this post.
All you have to do for this tag is to list 5 things that make Christmas for you.
So here are my 5.

Christmas Markets.
I love walking round the Christmas market in my local town centre just before Christmas. It always make me feels so much more festive. From stalls selling gift ideas, food, drink to trees and decorations there is always something there for everyone.

Food.
Who doesn't love a good Christmas dinner? I am not normally a fan of Sunday dinners but Christmas dinner is different in my eyes. Pigs in blankets are my personal favourite and also these cheese wrapped in bacon I love them too! Can't forget the buffet we have on Christmas Day night too.

Family.
This is an obvious one. Christmas is all about spending time with family. This year I am with my dad and his family so I will see them all Christmas. Next year I am with my mum and her family. Christmas and family just go together.

Snow.
I know I live in England and it hardly ever snows at Christmas but we can imagine it, right? I remember one year about 4 years ago it did snow on Christmas day, wasn't much but it still did. Every year I hope for a White Christmas.

Christmas films/ specials.
There is nothing better than cosy on the sofa or in bed with nice hot chocolate watching a Christmas film or tv special. My favourite TV special has to be Gavin and Stacey. I do love to watch Elf too.

What makes Christmas for you

Random Ramble

Hi everyone. Okay so it's 1am at the moment and I feel like writing a post. I have no idea what I am going to be writing so I am just letting it all come off the top of my head.

First off I want to mention that I know day 7 of Blogmas never happened, I have pleurisy at the moment so I am ill and stuck in bed most of the time. I have loads of posts written up but its just finding the energy to be able to take pictures.

. Which gets me onto the next point my camera. For my birthday last year I got myself a Nikon camera. (I can't remember the exact one as I am at my dad's) It was a great camera for taking blogging pictures. Sadly last week I went to turn it on, nothing happened apart from the green light on the power button came on. I googled it and it is a common problem! I am so annoyed so I am currently using my Nikon coolpix s2500 for my blog pictures until I can save up for a new one which will be after Christmas.

I also want to mention how far I think my blog has come already. I know that I still have a long way to go compared to so many fellow bloggers but to say I only started my blog up in October and I have only really started blogging properly this month but I already have nearly 60 followers and over 400 page views. As I said before I know that to most people that is nothing. With my previous blog it seemed to take me ages to start getting views and stuff but I am so grateful with how well I feel Kt Beauty is going.

Now on to what I am hoping to do with Kt beauty next year. I am hoping that I will start making it more personal, include a picture of me and things like that but right now I am still very anxious about doing due to everything with my old blog. After I have added the personal touch to it I am hoping to go into YouTube. I really want to do this but I am no where near ready to go near this yet.

Well this has been a bit of random mumble jumble of a post hasn't it? I liked it though so I may make it a bit of a series for whenever I feel like I need to do a random talk with you all.
Let me know if you liked this type of post too.
Thanks for reading

Superdrug Tea Tree Scrub




Hey everyone so today's post is going to be a review on the Superdrug Tea Tree Facial Scrub.
I mentioned this scrub around two months ago in my skincare post and I said I was going to review them all soon and here is the first review from my skincare products.
I like to use this scrub every other day to make my skin feel a lot cleaner and it does do that as my skin doesn't feel as oily after using it.
I use this after cleaning as an extra step in my routine.
I have noticed that it does make my skin burn a little bit, not too much but It is noticeable.
The smell of the tea tree is quiet strong and does make my eyes water a little.
In general I do like this scrub but I think I would look for another one to use after this one runs about but I'm not saying I wouldn't repurchase it.
This costs £3.29 and is available from Superdrug.

What is your favourite face scrub? 
Thanks for reading,
