Boohoo #WeAreFamily campaign - NYE

I was lucky enough to be chosen by Boohoo to take part in their New Years Eve #WeAreFamily campaign.

I chose two outfits; one for partying (Jennifer mesh bodycon dressand one for a more low key dinner party (Sia strappy low back metallic bodycon dress), so hopefully there is some inspiration for everyone!

The prices of all the Boohoo dresses are great and the quality is still amazing. For this reason, Boohoo are my favourite online retailer at the moment... they have up to 50% off selected lines and £1 next day delivery right now, what more of a reason could you need to shop?!

The dresses were true to size - although I must admit a little tight but I had been binging my way through my exams last week so that might explain it... ops...

I am getting super excited for Christmas & New Year now; I love getting dressed up, seeing all my nearest and dearest, and just having a great time.

The first dress is super glittery and my camera did not do it justice but I am in love with the low back (but it isn't too low that you can't wear a bra still)... The second, I have to admit I was a bit nervous about but it fits like a dream and isn't too see-through, and I am wearing a bralet with it which I think works well!

I had so much fun shooting these looks, I love experimenting with hair and makeup too - let me know what you think...!

Gift guide - for women

Here are my top gifts for all types of women this Christmas...

For those who love their photographs, check out Huggle Up - they do amazing, reasonably priced prints, which you can also get as magnets!

Something that is so in right now are these light up letters - Up In Lights - spell out their name or simply their initials or even just a star.

ASOS do an amazing Christmas gift range every year with gifts for everyone! Which there is also an amazing sale on right now.

What about a subscription? To their favourite magazine or Look Fantastic Beauty Box 

Do they love doing their nails? I can't recommend the Sensationail gel kit enough. Keep an eye out in boots because they often do offers on this!

On a budget? 

Look out for the deals at this time of year; Superdrug has 20% off all fragrance gift sets right now... or even make your own packaging just to make the present more exciting, make your own Christmas crackers at Hobby Craft

Go with a theme 'the Christmas day package' 'the pamper package' 'the beauty package' etc

This can be done for people of all ages.

You can even team up with others and for example someone get PJs, someone get matching slippers, and someone get a matching dressing gown, etc etc.

Christmas socks are always a winner!

For the girly girls...

My favourite jumper ever right now is this to do list from Rad 

You can't go wrong with a Little Miss Princess Pouch

Disney do Personalised gifts which are perfect for all ages.

South Beach unicorn slippers are really cute and great for lounging around on Christmas day!

Light up trainers! Speaks for itself really... don't be afraid to shop on eBay for some cute little gifts, read my post on how to shop on eBay here. 

For those busy bees...

Candles, bath bombs - all the relaxing essentials needed for a chilled Christmas...

I absolutely love Yankee Candle, as most women do but if you're not sure on a scent, I would stick with something like Soft Blanket or Clean Cotton as they are fairly neutral smells that everyone should love!

You can't go wrong with a Lush bath bomb (if they have a bath of course) - so perfect for unwinding, plus they do a special Christmas range.

Throw in some chocolate or popcorn, a bottle of wine and a DVD and you have the perfect Christmas hamper!

What gifts have you brought this Christmas?
