FASHION: Feeling festive

The starbucks redcups are out, Lush have released the Chrismas collection and you can't move for fairy lights - it's defiantly that time of year.
With each year the festive jumper trend seems to be bigger, better more garish and harder to escape.  I say escape but who really wants to?! Once a tongue in cheek christmas joke they are now to be worn with pride.  Less Bridget jones than ever the festive jumper is not a wardrobe essential for this time of year.

Here are my picks - 
1. Newlook - kitsch santa. 2. Newlook - This is from the mens section but i'm really loving the grand vibe. 3.  River Island - This is not - for the scrooge in us all. 4. Necklace - little moose.  5. Asos This Girl loves Christmas.

Newlook where kind enough to send me this beauty to keep me warm this winter.
Its so soft almost a cashmere feel and a nice oversized fit. I think the kitsch santa is super cute and the sequins on the hat contrast beautifully with his fluffy beard.

What do you make of the christmas jumper trend?

Finally I will eave you with my favourite christmas photo of myself,

Beauty: Mac Neutrals Palette

An Eye Shadow Palette in fifteen warm shades: Hey, Warm Breeze, Gingersnap, Dark Brew, Dance in the Dark, Brule Vanilla Extract, Honey Lust, Amber Lights, Saddle, Lemon Tart, Butterfudge, Creative Copper, Unwind and Divine Decadence. - http://www.maccosmetics.co.uk

Earlier this year MAC released two pre filled neutral palettes consisting of 15 eyeshadows, 1 warm toned and 1 cool toned, both of which are now part of the permanent range available online and in store and at MAC counters. When I saw that these palettes online I was desperate to own the warm palette, all of the shades are completely up my street and compared to the price of a regular MAC palette, the ones you have to fill yourself, this one is an absolute steal.
Liake always with MAC eyeshadows the quality and pigmentation is perfect I also like the mix of finishes that come with the is palette. It's defiantly become a time favourite of mine since I bought it.
Such a great palleted for neutral lovers or those just starting to build up there collection but I also see it being a valuable piece of an mua kit with the shades being so universal.
It was a lot of money to spend on a palette in one go but the savings are incredible and I'm thinking that cost per use will well justify the initial outlay.

What do you think of the MAC neutrals, well worth the investment or not?
