Christmas Market Magic In Brussels!

Hey there, it's been quite a while since my last post because of the Christmas festivities! This month has been so busy and absolutely flown over, the highlight being me and a group of friends flew out to Brussels, Belgium on a last minute Winter trip! I took about a million photos but thought I'd share a few with you of the Christmas Markets, which were the main attraction of the city break. We had the the most amazing time, I ate my weight in chocolate topped waffles, forced my boyfriend onto a ferris wheel, bought mulled wine purely to warm my hands up and of course, had a few laps around the ice rink! Honestly, if you love all things Christmas then you will fall in love with Brussels this time off year... but don't forget to wrap up as it's freezing!! If you're interested in visiting Brussels I have a travel guide coming soon which I hope you will find useful, including where I stayed and the best places to go suggested by the locals.

I'd love to know which Christmas Markets you visited this year?

Travel Friendly Skincare | NSPA Beauty Rituals Box Product Praise

Hello and welcome to Blogmas Day 7! Today's post is a review/ praise of the NSPA Beauty Rituals Skincare Gift Set that I thought fits in well with Blogmas as it's a great affordable gift and it's been a while since I've talked about anything beauty related. A long time ago I purchased this small gift set from ASDA while I was supposed to be doing a food shop (no surprise there!) and completely forgot about it at the back of my cupboard! It was only when I was out of Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish and searching for a make up remover that I remembered about the Hot Cloth Polish from the NSPA Skincare Box and it saved the day! This worked so well that it got me interested in testing out all the products and I'm really impressed, so much that I am taking the 4 step regime to Brussels next week, as they are the perfect size for travelling!

Each product is 50ml and is supposed to be a key step in providing a spa like facial at home and I'm very happy to say it is not tested on animals, as well as packed with moisturising Ginseng, Vitamin E and Grapeseed oil for radiant skin. The first step is the Melting Cleansing Gel which is a lovely gel like formula that goes milky as you lather it in. It is a really nice, gentle cleanser that can be used to melt away make up or just work as a face wash. The second step is exfoliation using the Hot Cloth Polish with a muslin cloth to buff away dead skin but I mainly use this to further remove my makeup and it is very gentle on the eyes. It's a lovely option for travel because of its size but won't replace my Cleanse & Polish in every day life because my skin loves that stuff! The third step is something that I've really been missing in my skincare routine and hadn't even realised it... the Radiant Flash Serum gives my skin a glow that the cold weather has been taking away! I haven't used it for long enough to see more permanent results but I am liking it so far. The final step is to moisturise with the Brightening Day Cream which I really like as it's not too heavy, so makes a great base under make up and for a few days it won't hurt to double it up as my overnight moisturiser, as I don't suffer from dry skin. Because of this I'm not very picky with moisturiser and I tend to try new ones every time and I'm still looking out for the perfect one s please let me know your recommendations.

All the products are available in full size so I think I will be picking up the full size of the melting cleansing gel!

Available at ASDA now for £8.00!

Let me know if you've ever used Nspa products or your favourite skincare to travel with!

Autumn Hues

Frosty mornings are upon us but the Autumn colours are hanging in tight, with fresh green grass and golden leaves it is officially my favourite time of the year! Today I wore this statement Camel Coat from New Look that I actually bought last year however I have linked some great options that are available this winter. It's a great stylish piece that will hopefully last me a really long time and it is perfect for this kind of weather. I've paired it with a cream jumper from Primark, Topshop ripped jeans and my favourite new purchase... Sock Boots! This pair in particular are from In The Style and they are amazing quality for the price and look great with almost every outfit! If you're looking for a pair I've seen some lovely choices for Public Desire and Missguided

Everything Etsy | Christmas Gift Guide 2016

As the last instalment to my Christmas Gift Guides 2016 (don't worry there's still plenty holiday themed posts to come) I'm bringing to my favourite picks from Etsy. If you've been living under a rock and never ventured onto the creative jungle that is Etsy, it is a great platform for businesses to sell their handmade and uniquely designed products to people all over the world! This makes it the perfect place to do some special Christmas shopping to treat someone you love to a gift that's personalised, unique and definitely not on the high street! As a regular user of Etsy, I thought it would be a nice little idea to share what I've been loving lately and perhaps you'll find your new favourite shop. Please do share in the comments your favourite Etsy shops and products and let me know if you buy any of these items! Tweet me: @ailsahymers xo

Check out my Etsy Edit Wishlist for even more lovely products!

Happy Gifting!

Fashion & Beauty Blogger/ Youtuber | Christmas Gift Guide 2016

If you have a friend or loved-one who's into the whole blogging or youtubeing 'thing' and you're not too sure what to get them, one of these suggestions could be just what you're looking for! A fun but useful gift that will help them with their passion, whether it be photography, stationary or just novelty here's my top picks for everyone in the blogosphere to create better content!
Lighting is key for great product photography so this Neewer Ring Light could be just what they need to take their content quality to the next level!

A blogger always needs battery and with this handbag friendly Lumsing Dual-USB Charger they'll be able to snap and record everything, without worrying about battery percentage.

Because they're going to be spending a lot of time working at desk and that means copious cups of tea (or drink of their choice) and with each sip this Little Miss Blogger Mug will remind them of their passion. 

Decorate their desk with this pretty handmade Marble Mouse Pad from Etsy.

No doubt they'll be needing storage for their beauty items. Take a look at Amazons deals like this 'Letter Holder' style which is great for face and eyeshadow palettes.

Whether they film lookbooks, hauls or chatty videos, give the gift of stability this year to up their video quality with this Zeadio C-Grip Stabiliser

7. EYE-FI 16GB
A nifty little gift enables them to transfer photos wirelessly to their laptop or phone even if their camera does not have Wi-Fi built in! The Eyefi SDHC Card automatically organises the photos in time and date order for ultimate organisation. 

With 380 pages this White Marble Daily Journal from Urban Outfitters could be home to all their blogger plans/ ideas and looks super stylish on their desk. A key prop for those desk flatlays!

Anyone would love the new Beats Solo 2 Wireless Bluetooth Headphones. They're great for editing and very practical for travelling as they fold up.

The Phot-R 5in1 Handheld Collapsible Studio Light Reflector is a great affordable way to diffuse light and diminish shadows.

Every blogger /youtuber needs a camera! My choice is the Sony A5000 as its great quality, yet easy to carry around and with it's flip up screen its perfect for vlogging. It is the worlds smallest and lightest camera that has interchangeable lens' and also has built in Wi-Fi for ease.

With this Neewer DSLR Camera Slider your blogger beauty can create much more professional content with smooth panoramic shots.

Be selfie ready with a Lumee Phone Case. Perfect lighting is only a click away!
