5 Hot Chocolate Topping Ideas

I love hot chocolates, they're perfect to keep you warm in Autumn and Winter and are so Christmassy too! One thing I like to do is experiment a bit with different toppings so I thought I'd share some topping ideas!

The Flake Hot Chocolate 
So once you've made your hot chocolate grab some cream and add it to the top, take a small flake, ones for ice creams are ideal or you could just literally break one in half stick that in the top like you would with an ice cream and crumble some more flake on top of the cream.

The Mickey Mouse Hot Chocolate 
I couldn't not do a Disney-related one could I? So once you've made your add chocolate and added some cream get two Oreos and place them either side of your cream too look like two ears, cute! You could just leave it like that or add some crushed Oreo and marshmallows too!

The Milky Bar Hot Chocolate 
This one you can see in the picture above. I added cream to my hot chocolate then used 1 stick from a Milky Bar Crisp (they're yummy) popped that into the cream then added some milky stars - and it tasted SO good, insert heart eye emoji here.

The Smarties Hot Chocolate
For a colourful hot chocolate, again add your cream then add some smarties on top, yum!

The Sprinkles Hot Chocolate
For this one you simply add some sprinkles whichever sprinkles you have they could be shaped ones hundreds and thousands any you like then add some chocolate chips and you're finished!

What are your favourite hot chocolate toppings?

I can honestly say that I've been trying to get my hands on this Holographic nail polish from Gosh for ages! I love how holographic nail polish looks on the nails and really wanted to try one for myself but found out that this was a actually limited edition and I couldn't find it anywhere!  But it's back! Yesssss! I'm hoping it's back out permanently now and not on a limited edition basis because I love love love this nail polish. It's in the shade Holographic Hero, it's really opaque and only takes two coats for it too fully cover the nails, the finish of this nail polish is so so pretty. It's a perfect for the festive season and I know I'm going to be wearing this nail polish constantly now.

Please Gosh keep this nail polish permanently!

Rimmel Oh My Gloss Lip Glosses

Rimmel Lip Gloss Review, Rimmel Rita Ora Oh My Gloss Lip Glosses, Oh My Gloss

When the Rimmel Oh My Gloss Lip Glosses were first released I really wanted to get some to try out I've become such a lip gloss girl lately I just find them so easy to apply quickly especially if you're in a rush. I'm really glad I purchased these I got the more nude / pinky shades as I'm loving a nude and pink lip. I bought the shades Glossip Girl, Purr..Glossy Cat, Glossaholic and Keep a Secret I really love the names and yes they did influence me when purchasing them ooops! The packaging itself is really nice it's got an unusual bottle shape almost a triangle sort of shape that you can see the shade through, very unique and has a classic black lid with the brush applicator attached.

Glossip Girl - I love the Gossip Girl name, this is a really pretty pale coral shade that has glitter in.

Purr..Glossy Cat - One for all the cat lovers, this is a really nice brown/pinky toned nude lip gloss with speckles of glitter in, I really like this one and it's definitely my most worn out of all of them, it's just a super easy shade to wear and a great nude lip gloss.

Glossaholic - Is the only one I picked up without any glitter in, it's a bubblegum pink kind of pink shade, really nice and wearable.

Keep A Secret - Is a Coral and Pinky toned lip gloss shade, with speckles of glitter in also.

These lip glosses are really well pigmented and the brush applicator is really soft and applies to gloss easily and smoothly. The formula of the lip gloss contains both Vitamin E and Argan oil and I do find them moisturising and hydrating. They claim to last for 6 hours but during eating or drinking they do wear off so I say the staying power is between 3-6 hours. These have a really glossy finish and have a nice scent to them (always a nice thing). I do find these lightweight and not sticky in the slightest so they're really nice lip glosses and I'm glad I purchased these.

November Favourites

Monthly Favourites, MAC Creme Cup, Tanya Burr Hollywood Palette, Barry M Nail Polish, Rimmel Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara

It's officially December! Happy Christmas Month to you all! I'm so excited about Christmas now! But it's November favourites time and I've got a few beauty favourites to share with you.

First is a mascara I definitely go in stages when it comes to mascara I either love it or hate it, but I have been really liking the Rimmel Lash Accelerator Mascara, I find it separates my lashes really really nicely and the brush applicator reaches my lashes easily and applies the mascara really well.

The next favourite of mine is one of Tanya Burrs new eyeshadow Palettes, which is the Hollywood palette, the shades are all well pigmented and super pretty this has definitely been my go to palette for November, got a lot of love for this one.

I've recently discovered this beauty of a lipstick again which is MAC's Creme Cup lipstick it's a really pretty almost baby pink kind of shade and I really like it, great for everyday wear.

Finally my last favourite is pretty festive, there's something about glitter nail polishes at Christmas time. This Blue Glittery nail polish from Barry M is super pretty, It applies really nicely and I use it as a glitter top coat it gives a really nice glittery effect and I love it!
