My Favourite Christmas Movies

Hey everyone!

Christmas is getting so close and im so exicted!. Let’s be honest, everyone’s favourite thing about Decemeber isnt to sit on the couch with a big blanket and some Christmas movies it’s literaly the best thing in the world, it’s December 2nd and it is time to spent half your time watching Christmas movies, so heres my favourite Christmas movies.

  • Santa Buddies – I’m back again with the buddies because i honeslty do love them so much, i’ve never watched a set of movies so much and still love them so much honestly. Who doesn’t love a good talking dog movie?. I’d highly recomment it though it’s such a cute little Christmas movie.

  •  Santa Paws – Another talking dog movie, my bad! For real though it is such a cute and amazing movie about friendship, the bond between a dog and their owner aswell as believing and having hope and its just amazing and if you havent seen it you are defiently missing out big time, i litteraly want to cry everytime i watch it!!

  •  The Santa Clause 1,2&3 – Such amazing Christmas movies that I’ve been watching for as long as i can remeber, literally cant go a Christmas without watching atleast one of the three. I’m 100% sure everyone in the world has seen all three of these movies, they are litteraly always shown on Tv throughout December so you must have come across it at some point!.

  • A Christmas Carol – Okay this movie has defiently a movie everyone in the world has seen without a doubt, along with the rest it’s been a movie I have watched for years! It’s such an amazing movie that you need to watch at some point in your life honestly! Watch it if you havent already!!!

  • The Muppet Christmas Carol – Personally it isn’t one of my favourites but i thought I’d mention it because it’s a movie my family watch litteraly 20 times a year because it’s actually my dad’s favourite and he has been watching it since he was really young so we always watch it togetter at Christmas time.

  • Home Alone – Are you even human if you haven;t seen Home Alone!!?!?!? Honestley you cant say you havent seen it and if you havent stop reading this and go get yourself some popcorn and watch it!!!
  • Elf – Elf is littersly a must watch Christmas movie and no one can disagree with that, end of story.

  • The Grinch – Like Elf the Grinch is just a movie you have to watch, you dont need to say anything you just have to watch it.

  • The Polar Express – This is literally the most popular Christmas movie there is without a doubt, every year all i hear and see is people on about this movie and it is actually really good.

  • Fred Claus – Last but not least Fred Claus also a top favourite for me and i just love it simple as that.

Hello December..

I can’t believe that December is already here, 2018 flew by so fast but anyways. For my December post’s I won’t be labeling it as blogmas because I’m not sure weather I’m going to be posting daily or not but I will be posting as much Christmas themed post’s as I possibly can!

I don’t want to commit and say I will do blogmas because I really don’t know if I will, I tried to go blogtober but so much happened in the month of October and I was also unhappy with loads of my posts when I went to upload them and I didn’t want to post anything that i wasn’t 100% on and with loads happening I didn’t have the time to write new posts, so that’s why I’m doing this but hopefully I will at least get between 10-15 posts up this month! Plus I am already writing and planning some really amazing posts for January and I plan on staying with it and posting on here regularly and as much as I can. Sometimes I just can never find the time to just sit down to write and edit posts and also make sure I’m 100% happy with it but I have a new schedule set for myself and have made time to create content for my website and I am really looking forward to it, this is the start of it and I will also have another post up tomorrow.

Also, I will be gone to an event all day tomorrow, it’s for a great cause and I will write a post all about it and it will hopefully be up during the week!

SOSU by Suzanne Jackson

 
Today’s post is about an Irish beauty brand called SOSU which was created by an Irish blogger called Suzanne Jackson. She has such a successful make-up brand along with an amazing tan called Dripping Gold Tan.

I never actually tried her products until 24th of October when her pop up shop in Primark, Dublin opened! I went to the opening and couldn’t leave empty handed so I picked up her “The Ultimate Trio” palette along with some nails and lashes. Before I get to the product I just want to say if you live in Ireland you should definitely pop in to her pop up shop because it is amazing, all of her products are available to buy there and she has 6 amazing make-up artist’s that you can get your makeup done from, so if you are unsure what to get you could always get your makeup done by one of them and see if you like the product before you buy it, I’ll put up a picture of the price list for you! but if you aren’t from Ireland all products are available on sosubysj.com along with a stock list of other places you can purchase her products, the price list shows the prices for all her products which you can also view on her website. From makeup to tan to perfume she has it all, so happy shopping!!. 

Also she has come out with a spray tan and tan eraser, along with an amazing collection with Keilidh, which aren’t on the list but are on her website!

The Ultimate Trio palette is the only product I have tried of hers and it’s unbelieveable, I have been looking for the right contour for ages now and the second I applied this one I fell in love and I don’t think I could live without it now and what I also love about it is that it’s travel size and you could easily pop it into your bag and you are good to go. It also comes with a mirror which is great. But my favourite part is probably the packaging, the rose gold is absolutely beautiful! 

The product itself is just unreal, if you want the perfect contour then you need this palette, I’m not exaggerating at all!. It gives such a beautiful finish and definition to your face, it’s not too dark or light it’s just right. As well as that I love the highlight and the glow is so beautiful. There are videos of makeup artists using the product on their Instagram (@/sosue_bysuzannejackson) if you want to see them in use!

I am starting a make-up course in January and I have ordered another one of the “The Ultimate Trio” palette along with 3 more of her palette’s, Hot Fire Eyeshadow Palette, Complete Contour Palette and Highlighter Kit. Along with lashes and I can’t wait to try them all out! the review’s for them will be on my Instagram along with pictures using the products!

Must Watch Netflix Show’s

Today I thought I’d tell you about Netflix shows because it’s the prefect time to get into watching some shows! Everyone loves a bit of Netflix, anytime I finish a show my first thought is what do I watch next? I thought id do a post on what TV shows to watch and I will also be doing one on movies to watch!

1. The Vampire Diaries 

I feel like nearly everyone has seen The Vampire Diaries and if you haven’t then you need to! If you like supernatural things, drama and love story’s then you need to watch it. It is based on a young girl named Elena who is just a normal girl until she meets a vampire and she gets pulled into the supernatural world along with all her friends and they do crazy things together and do all they can to help and protect their family’s and town. Overall it’s a great show and such a beautiful cast!!

2. The Originals

If you watch The Vampire Diaries then you’ll want to watch The Originals!. It’s the spin-off show all about the original vampire family which all make an appearance in the vampire diaries and they also have quest appearances from cast members of the vampire diaries. This show is about Klaus a mean hybrid whose brother tries to make a better person and a past girl Klaus slept with and fell pregnant so the show is mostly all about him and his daughter, I’ve yet to watch the 5th and final season, Also as far as I know Hope daughter of Klaus it having her own spin-off show so that’s another one to look out for!

3. Gossip Girl

If you are reading this and haven’t seen gossip girl then you should because its about a blog! Its based in New York City and there is about 5 main characters and they are all friends (kinda) but they go to school and in their school one of the students has a blog called gossip girl where you can find all the dirt and gossip about everyone in school. Gossip girl gets all her information from other students who text or email her things they hear or see happening! If you watch the full thing you will be amazed by who gossip girl actually is!.

4. Once Upon A Time:
I went to go watch this when it first came out but I watched like two minutes of the first episode and turned it off and didn’t come back to it for months and im happy I did. If you love Disney you’ll like this, would say love but some Disney lovers didn’t like how mixed up the stories were, I like it but I also didnt like some of the ways they mixed the stories but overall it was good. The last season wasnt my favourite but i would recommend it!

5. Jane The Virgin:
I seen this pop up on my Netflix and just never clicked on it because I didn’t think id have any interest in it but I was so wrong, I really enjoyed it and had no idea it was mostly about Jane being a writer and wanting to write a book which I loved. It is always a very complicated love story. As far as i know there will be another season coming at some point but I also seen an article saying it was cancelled and im not sure if its cancelled after the next season or they aren’t making another one, but I hope there is another one coming!

6. Teen Wolf:
id be lying if I didn’t say i only started to watch this because Dylan O’Brien was staring in it but i ended up really enjoying it other than the last season because Dylan wasnt in it much. Overall its a great show and is also supernatural but has completely different things in than The Vampire diaries like it says in the title it is mostly just werewolves and some other weird supernatural creatures. It’s definitely one of my favourite shows though!

7. How I Met Your Mother:
Most people in the world have seen this but some haven’t, its such an amazing show that I couldn’t leave it out. It felt like years till he got to the end of story and actually revealed who it was and how they met!. The ending was by far my favourite thing ever.

8. Shadow Hunters:
Another supernatural show.. I’m kind of obsessed with them to be honest but it’s another great show. They also have a movie version of it but I think the show is so much better. It has more detail and a better cast in my opinion, the shows cast really seem to fit the characters more but of course it’s up to you! Would recommend them though because they have a great story.

9. 13 reasons why:
Majority of the world has seen this but anyways. I think the reason and story behind it is amazing, it about things that people do face everyday of their lives. I know loads of people have different opinions of it all but overall I think it’s a good message they are trying to spread!

10. Friends

Okay if you don’t love friends we just can’t be friends, literally the best TV show ever no arguments. I’m not going to explain what it’s about because everyone knows. Just like many others I’ve watched this over and over but I have actually not watched it from start to finish before and look forward to doing that soon!.

11. Pretty Little Liars

Another really popular show which I wasn’t too pushed on to start with but ended up loving. It’s about 5 best friends who get messages from “A” who makes them do horrible things and they do all she says to protect themselves and loved ones. If you like murder mysteries and stuff like that you’ll love this!

12.  Riverdale

Riverdale is a new enough show, season 3 comes out next month. It’s mostly just about 4 best friends trying to figure out the unusual times that are happening in their town that everyone always thought was extremely safe.

13. Alexa & Katie

I loved the story behind this. It was a short show but I still loved it. It is about a young girl going through cancer and has her best friend by her side through it all and I just think it’s a great story about friendship and also i love the character of the girl who has cancer, shes all about doing crazy things and living every second of her life!.

14. Greenhouse Academy 

I kind of just watched this because I was bored and finished all my other shows, but I actually thought it was good. It’s about a brother and sister who’s Mam got lost in a rocket explosion on her way to the moon then go to the school she went to and the school is split in two you can be in the eagles or the ravens. You’ll get me if you watch it but it has a happy ending.

15. The Big Bang Theory

Again another really famous show that most people have seen and I don’t think I have to explain it because everyone kind of has an idea of what it’s about.

Here is a short list of some other shows that people have recommended to me or that I plan on watching soon!

1. Orange Is The New Black

2. Stranger Things

3. Gilmore Girls

4. Good Girls

5. Friends From College
