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.

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?

Rimmel- Moisture Renew Lipstick; 210 Fancy



Hey everyone so today's post is going to be on the Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in the shade 210 Fancy. 
I picked this lipstick around a month ago as I was looking for a pink colour lipstick that I could wear everyday for work. Since I bought it, it has been my go to lipstick. 
It's a lovely light pink colour with hint of shimmer running through it to add a little bit of sparkle to my everyday makeup.
I love the packaging of this lipstick too. I love how the lid comes right down the full lipstick, not sure why but that is a love of mine!.
This lasts around 4 hours on my lips so I do sometimes need to top it up!
It costs £6.49 and is available in store at Boots, Superdrug and online.

GOSH- 9 Shades; To enjoy in New York.



Hey everyone so today's post is going to be on the GOSH 9 shade eyeshadow palette in 'To enjoy in New York'.
I picked this up a couple of months ago when Superdrug had a 2 for £10 deal on GOSH eye products which is a great deal as this palette should of been £9.99 by its self. 
First off I'm going to say that I love the package it is a lovely compact black matte case with GOSH written in a glossy black colour. It also has a big mirror inside which is always handy.
The inside of the palette has 3 rows of shades. The top row has pink colours. The middle row is purple colours and the bottom row are neutral colours. All of the colours have a hint of shimmer to them.
All in all I think these are really good shadows. They are all highly pigmented and are long lasting and I would definitely buy more.
I can't find this one online so I am not sure if they have stopped doing it now.
Have you tried any of these palettes? What do you think?

Blogmas and Update; Where have I been?

Hey everyone! I know in my last post I mentioned I had not been blogging due to a family problem. Not long after that post I had to go down to my family in Sheffield as my nana didn't have long left to live. Sadly I didn't make it in time to see her and she passed away the day before I got there. I was there for two weeks with my family before returning home to go to work. I was also full of cold which has now led to Pleurisy so now I am ill in bed which means I have loads of time to blog!

Starting from the 1st of December they're will be a post every single day up until the 31st. If of course I can keep on top of this I will be carrying on through the new year. I am starting to write up the posts now in preparation for Monday. 
If you have any post suggestions you would like to see on here over the next month then please let me know and I will be sure to try and add them to my schedule.

I will also be changing my blog into a Christmas theme with Christmas colours, theme and header for the month of December to give my blog the Christmas theme.

See you all on the 1st.

My night with Pete.

Hey everyone! Sorry I haven't posted in a couple of weeks or so, I am currently having a family issue which I will probably go into a bit more when I feel ready to discuss but right now I don't. This post isn't beauty related but I really wanted to share with you the amazing night I had last week.

Anyway last week on 27th October I went to see Peter Andre live at Blackpool! I have had a huge crush on him for around 10 years now so finally getting to see him live was amazing. I was sat 15 rows from the front which was bloody good, could see him perfect. I also have to add his support act Digital Kid were fab!! To say they were only around  14.
Junior also made a little appearance on the stage showing off his dance moves. He is going to be a heart breaker when he grows up!
Enough of the rambling on I am going to stick some of the pictures on here for you to see.
Sorry for the random post but just wanted to share it with you and pop something up seen as though I vanished.

My Skin Care Products.


Hey everyone so in this post I am going to be giving you a quick over view on the skin care products I use on a daily basis. I am going to be doing in depth reviews on each of these products over the next couple of posts so keep your eyes peeled for them. As you can see all of these are Superdrug's own brand, mainly because I love them and they are super cheap.

I start off by removing my eye makeup with Superdrug's own my little star fragrance free baby wipes.
I then move on to the Superdrug tea tree lemon facial wash all over my face to take off my foundation etc.
I then just sweep over my face with the Superdrug Simply Pure refreshing toner over my face.
Every other day I use the Superdrug tea tree exfoliating scrub all over my face to give it a good old clean.
I then go back over with the same toner as before.
To finish off I use the simply pure light moisturiser over my full face.

What do you use to look after your skin?
