Christmas Night Out Essentials & A Few New Brands To Take To The Party*


It's here. Christmas party season. That time of the year when everyone embraces the YOLO attitude I've been following in 2018; with the tagline of 'f*ck it, it's Christmas.' For example:

Friend: "Town?"
Me: "Ah f*ck it, it's Christmas."

Friend: "Takeaway?"
Me: "Ah f*ck it, it's Christmas."

Friend: "After work sesh?"
Me: "Ah f*ck it, it's Christmas."

And aside from the fact it's Winter now and abso freezin, I properly live for this lifestyle & the amount of festive partying it brings about. I've compiled a lil roundup of Christmas Party Season Essentials for today's post; which I thought I'd publish now, ahead of the Season of the Sesh, so you can get stocked up & prepared. Cos you never know when the call of the tinsel headbands & vodka shots is going to chime out - all you can do is make sure you're prepared for it. And know that it is going to happen.

It's important to not overlook the essentials & just go straight in for the sequins when embracing the "f*ck it, it's Christmas' approach to life. You don't wanna finally get that absolute ten from ya local under the mistletoe; only for him to recoil in horror at ya death-breath. 

Or, if you're into hair removal [you might not be - and that's okay too hun], you don't wanna get out into town with that fit AF bodycon on; feelin' yaself, only to remember you haven't shaved ya legs for about a millennium & it looks like you're wearing furry leggings. So here's some tried & tested faves to get you through the party season & prep yourself for the inevitable last minute invitations; summed up in one rambly AF [standard] blog post for ya xo

Battle Death-Breath & Flash Dem Pearly Whites

There's inevitably gonna be a lot of unplanned pics of you, smashed, gurning away on social media over the festive season. Even if you don't drink, the atmosphere is contagious & it only takes one candid photo of you passionately singing 'LIVIN' ON A PRAYER!' with a piece of spinach stuck in ya gnashers to ruin your day & cause you to spend hours begging ya pals to untag you. 

A few of my fav products to help counteract these shameful sorta scenarios are the Beverly Hills Formula Black Pearl Whitening Toothpaste*, DenTek's Easy Brush Cleaners* [basically like posh floss] and the very fab HumbleBrush Toothbrush* included in this post.

I've spoken about how much I love Beverly Hills Formula Whitening Toothpaste before [in this post] - and this passionate obsession hasn't lessened in any way since then. I honestly believe this brands' products are some of the most effective in teeth whitening I've ever used - I can really tell the difference when testing the results against similar products which claim to have the same effects. It's on offer at Superdrug atm, so snap some up whilst you can!

These lil DenTek brushes are perfect for brushing inbetween your teeth; they're a product my dentist has actually used and recommended for me before, and something I buy pretty regularly in the fight against death breath. They really help keep inbetween ya teeth clean & prevent any sh*t building up. All contributing to a whiter, healthier smile.

And although a new brand to me before this post, I'm big into HumbleBrush now too. This totes eco-friendly, on-fleek & sustainably designed toothbrush is lightweight AF [perfect for travelling], gives a proper decent level of clean & does so much good, too. 

The Humble Co develop reliable, eco-friendly & socially responsible health & wellness products; with an innovative twist. Not only do they create products which are good for you AND kind to our planet; every Humble purchase goes towards funding projects for the benefit of children in need. I cannot applaud this brand enough.

De-Fuzz

Now I'm not being dramatic [okay I am, cos I always am] but this new Wilkinson Sword Intuition F.A.B Razor* is like, the best razor I've ever used [and again, on offer in Superdrug right now.] 

If you aren't familiar with this bangin' new concept, F.A.B [as well as the perfect adjective to describe the product] stands for front and back... it's the first razor I've seen / used with blades that allow you to shave in either direction. Say WUUUUUUUT?! And it's such a close yet gentle shave too.

It sounds like a proper mad concept; but it's not yeno. I can't believe I didn't invest in one of these sooner, tbh. The handle is really well designed [much better than my old Venus, which hit the bin the minute I unboxed this bad boy] and easy to hold; with grips and a gummy end [ooh-err] for a precise shave.

It has two sections of blades - one facing one way, the other; facing the [erm] other. This pure innovative design means you can effortlessly shave forward & back; for a closer & quicker shave. It's bloody brilliant. Officially, these blades are called 'bi-directional' & in easier-to-understand-terms; this basically means that the top blades shave up & the bottom blades shave down. Get one, hun. See wot I mean for yaself.

Flawless Legs

St Moriz coming THRU with this one! 🙌 I love St Moriz more than most things [definitely more than boys] and I've used their fake tan since 2010. I love their products' consistent results, price tags & availability. I blog about them all the time, I wear them all the time, I drunkenly tell people in toilets about their tanning sorcery all the time. BUT I HAD NO IDEA UNTIL NOW THAT THEY MADE THIS PRODUCT; and for me, it's like all my Christmases have come at once.

I've used Sally Hansen's Airbrush Legs since like, 2008 or something? I've always been a big fan... but of the price tag? Not so much. St Moriz's Professional Leg Tanning Spray* is on Fragrance Direct's site for just £3.99. £3.99. I CAN'T COPE. This stuff sprays on a lovely bronzey colour; acting as makeup for ya legs. It evens out your complexion, covers any bruises from ya last night on the sesh & leaves you with the nicest all-over glow. SOLD.

Pucker Up

Let's finish this post up with a slick of lippy from a new brand to my life. A new brand I now stan in a big way. The brand in question are Perfect Shade Beauty; and their gorge lip products, stunning collection & HOT packaging have really caught my attention. The icing on the cake to your fab festive beauty look.

I was very kindly sent this lipstick & matte liquid lipgloss from Perfect Shade recently - and they've blown me away. They're insanely pigmented & the nicest shades. The reddy lipstick shade has become one I reach for all the time... and the bright pink lipgloss I am made up with becauseeeee it's cool toned. Most of the neon or bright pinks in my collection are sadly quite warm u c, meaning they clash against my complexion & make me sad. BUT NOT THIS GUY!

The shades you see here / can find me weeping over every day now until Christmas are the Perfect Shade Beauty Swinging Red Lip Lipstick in All Day Everyday* and the Perfect Shade Beauty Playful Musician Liquid Lipstick in Insta Famous* [certainly wish I was bloody Insta famous, I lose more than I gain these days; like.]

Statement lip colours, sequins, stunningly smooth &tanned legs, a sexy smile and several Jagerbombs. As long as you have those things in plentiful amounts this Christmas, you're doing just fine, hun.
