Well it is nearly a week after Christmas so I am very late to the party (But better late than never!) I was very torn about whether I was going to write this post today with being new to the blogging community and I didn’t want to appear that I was bragging. After a lot of thinking and seeing many similar posts I thought why not?! This post is to show my appreciation about the presents I received and to maybe give you guys some gift ideas in the future!

All things beauty!


One thing you should know about me is that I love all things makeup… Hence the blog! So when my mum asked me what I wanted for Christmas, I couldn’t help but slip a few beauty items in there. One of the gifts I received was the Morphe 35F Fall into Frost Palette (£23 from BeautyBay) and it is BEAUTIFUL! The palette has lots of gorgeous autumnal metallic shades that are perfect for this time of year, along with a row of matte shades to finish off any look! I have only used this once so far but I cannot wait to play with it more. I also got the Benefit Hoola bronzer which is a personal favourite and something that i repurchase time and time again. I asked my mum for a liquid lipstick set but left it entirely up to her. I was so happy when I found out she had chosen the Stila Stay all day liquid lipsticks (I didn’t even know she knew the brand!) and they are gorgeous, I cannot wait to use them some more! I also got a Soap and Glory bath set, which smells BLOODY AMAZING, I am looking forward to having some relaxing baths in 2018. Lastly I got a French Connection make up set, this was a surprise as I didn’t know they did makeup. It came with a mascara, eyelash curlers, eyeliner, brow pencil and sharpener as well as the quad eyeshadow palette (shown in the picture). I am really interested to see how these perform.


Okay… So I say clothes but it is mainly cosy things that I got this Christmas (No complaints, I basically live in pajamas). I got a really fluffy white floor length dressing gown that is the snuggliest piece of clothing EVER and I have worn it to death already! I got some cute slippers that are in the style of an animal… Which animal it is? No idea… But they’re cute and comfy and thats all that matters! I also got some Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts socks which are the best socks I think I have ever received. I think the funniest thing(s) I got for Christmas this year were bras, seven to be exact… SEVEN! I told my mum I needed new bras but I think she went OTT this year, but they’re cute and hey it is one for every day of the week!

My favourite present I got this Christmas was a No7 mirror that lights up. I didn’t think I needed this but now I have one I don’t know how i survived without it! It is a beautiful rose gold colour and is double sided (one side has a 5x magnification) meaning doing my makeup is easier than ever. It gave me the inspiration to sort out my make up collection and storage so that it looks all pretty!

So that is what I got for Christmas this year and I am super grateful for all I received and I know how lucky I am. Leave a comment below letting me know what your favourite thing is that you got this year! Also let me know if you would like me to review any of the beauty products as I am really keen to try them out!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New year!

So I thought it would only be right for my very first post on ‘Being Chloe’ to be a reflection of 2017 and my goals and life aspirations for 2018! Hopefully this will let all you new readers (Fingers crossed) to get to know me a little better as I head into the new year with a new found confidence and motivation.

So, 2017 was a very interesting year for me, I lost a few people on the way but also met some amazing people who I now can’t imagine not being in my life. 2017 in particular has been probably the most difficult year I have faced (VERY long story). I struggled with relationships, health, and work (to name a few) but I am hoping I can learn from all of these mistakes and life lessons to have a much more happy 2018. And hey, if I hadn’t had such a difficult year I probably wouldn’t have decided to start a blog, so there is a silver lining.

But, enough about 2017, I have decided to try and think back positively about the past year to prepare myself for the new one. So here are a few goals I have set, that HOPEFULLY i will stick to, as I am pretty shit with New Years resolutions!

♥ To have a much more positive attitude about life and to try and find the good in a bad situation (I am such as pessimist). I would also like to find something fun or different to do everyday! Omg I sound like Ross from friends…

♥ This year, I really want to make it a personal mission to travel! I want to save my money and hopefully do some interrailing around Europe in the summer.

♥To be much more confident in myself at work and to push myself out of my comfort zone and try to make my project the best it can be.

♥ A very simple one… I want to walk my lil dog Mill every day so I can see that happy little tail wag!

♥ Finally… I want to do more things! Go on nights out more, do more activities, travel ,read and meet new people!

So I guess I will check back in a year (if my blog is still going, which I really hope it is) and see if I have achieved any of my goals!

Comment and let me know what your goals are, and also seeing as it is my first post, what kind of beauty and lifestyle posts you would like to read 🙂
