My Festive Style Guide

  • House Of Ho Ho Ho Fake Nails - These false nails are so stunning and perfect if you are feeling lazy or don't have time to paint your nails and wait for them to dry. 
  • Asos Cosy Pom Pom Socks - As it is getting colder fluffy socks are defiantly an essential to keep your feet nice and toasty during winter. 
  • Asos Santa Squad Tee - I love this Christmas tee, it is so cute! I like that it is short sleeved so on the off chance there is a slightly warmer day your can still look super festive without being all sweaty in a thick jumper. 
  • Jack Wills Mittens - Every winter I like wearing cute super festive mittens! Jack Wills is always my favrioute brand to buy mittens from, every year they bring out different patterns and colours.  
  • Faux Fur Headband - Pesonally I don't really like wearing hats but I do get quite cold ears, so I love this furry headband to keep my head warm during the colder months. 
  • Red Cherry False Lashes - These lashes from Red Cherry are definitely a current favrioute during this Christmas party season. 
  • NYX Liquid Suede - Shades: Sandstorm and Soft-Spoken - I have been obsessed with the liquid suede lipsticks from NYX for the past couple of months, the formula of these lip products are amazing and they are so affordable. 
  • Clinique Intense Chubby Stick - 07 - When I am not wearing the NYX liquid suede's on my lips then this is more than likley the lip colour I am rocking, it is the perfect festive lipstick.
  • Asos Pointed Heels -These shiny heels are the perfect shoes for any Christmas party, you can dress them up or down. They would look amazing with jeans or with a cute dress!
  • Dune Velvet Clutch -  I am so obsessed with this velvet clutch! To me velvet screams winter and this is the perfect clutch for Christmas and New Year partys, it is such a lovely versitile peice that will go with every outfit!

Vegan Truffles - Recipe

300g Dark Chocolate
1 Tin of Coconut Milk
2 Teaspoons Coconut Oil
Pinch of Sea Salt
Desiccated Coconut
Cacao Powder
To begin with place the coconut milk into a pan and put on a low heat until it starts to boil, whilst this is on the hob you can start to break up the dark chocolate and place in a large bowl along with 2 teaspoons of coconut oil and a pinch of salt. Once the coconut milk has started to boil take it of the heat and pour over the other ingredients in the bowl, then mix continuously until the dark chocolate has melted. Now you can pop clingfilm over the bowl and place the mixture into the fridge overnight or for at least a few hours. Once it has set take of the clingfilm and you can start to roll chunks of the chocolatey mixture into small balls. Next take the decorations of your choice (I chose cacao powder and desicated coconut) and roll the truffles in your chosen toppings until fully covered. Once you have finished all that is left to do is enjoy!
This is definitely my favourite recipe this holiday season, not only are these truffles the perfect snack they also make an amazing homemade gift, wrapped up in a festive box with a lovely red ribbon on top!
