When close friends May and Tom take a walk through the snow covered woods, May has no idea how truly magical, and dangerous, things are about to get.
When she wakes up badly injured in lavish but unfamiliar surroundings, she begins to understand that nothing is once what it was – and sometimes, as beautiful as the snow can be, it can be cruel.
Finding herself trapped in a terrible fairytale, May must find a way to get home before she is trapped there forever.
Please note that this is a 3/4 novel of 30,000 words.
It is an upper YA/Crossover timeslip / worldslip story with modern fairytale elements.
Well, what are you waiting for? Go onnnn snag yourselves a copy and get lost in this amazing and magical story!
Hey guys. Sorry it’s been a while. Trying to get back into the swing of things and what better than to blog about something Christmas related!
I’d recently taken part in a Christmas swap box exchange on an FB beauty group. Today, mine arrived all the way from the U.S. I am absolutely blown away and delighted with all the little treats that were inside.
I honestly don’t know how she managed it on the budget we’d agreed on! She’d somehow put together a box filled with both drugstore and high end products that I never imagined to see in my box because they’re so expensive over here in the UK! I was so overwhelmed and touched by it. I just hope she likes what I’ve sent her (all uk brands)! So far I have tried the Glamglow Poutmud and it’s looovely! It’s so moisturising with a minty smell and a little bit of a tingle to the lips! Can’t wait to see what the rest of the products are like!
I’m sorry this is such a short post but I must get back to wrapping up the Christmas presents! I’ve got some to post out to my family and friends tomorrow. Hopefully they will all get them in time for Christmas!
Take care guys and enjoy the festivities!
The lovely Jasmine at Jazzy Jems kindly sent me one of her handmade bracelets in return for an honest review. I love handmade things so how could I not oblige? 🙂. It came in the mail today and it’s so darn cute!
Jasmine can customise the bracelets so you can choose silver or coloured beads, what charms you’d like and also the length of the bracelet so that it’ll be the perfect fit for you or a loved one. I went for coloured beads because they are more me!
They are so pretty and kinda remind me of mermaids! I love that it’s a mixture of colours that compliments each other really. Because the bracelets are thin, they’d look fab if you wore a few together with different charms on!
If you’re looking for a cute jewellery gift for someone then definitely check out Jasmine’s Facebook page. There you’ll find other bracelets that she’s done as well as rings too!
I just had to share this with you guys! I love a lip scrub and would love to try and make this myself!
If there’s one thing I absolutely detest – it’s chapped lips. I have a bad habit of running my tongue over my lips several times a day. Though I follow up with a lip balm, but sometimes, you need extra help.
To keep your lips plump and hydrated, you should not only moisturize often, but also exfoliate them once a week. And while I love Herbivore Botanicals Coco Rose Lip Polish, I had to get one made by myself too. Read on to know my homemade lip scrub recipe –
- 1 teaspoon mixed berries, crushed (I chose raspberry, strawberry and blackberry)
- 1 teaspoon white sugar
- 1 teaspoon raw sugar
- 1 teaspoon coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 drop vanilla extract
- Add the white and raw sugar to crushed berries in a small bowl and mix together thoroughly.
- In a separate bowl, mix the two oils together…

OK so I know it isn’t until October but for the past week or so I’ve been thinking about what I’d like for my birthday (you can never start too early haha plus it gives people time to buy you gifts) and which beauty products I’ve been wanting for ages not to mention other things I’ve been lusting over. Click on the pics to take you to the links. 😀
No. 7 Illuminated Makeup Mirror.
I have been wanting this mirror for so long! However, if anyone has any recommendations for me, I’d love to hear them! Especially when it comes to the magnified side and the brightness of the light.
Morphe Brushes Eyeshadow Palettes.
I am in love with Morphe Brushes eyeshadow palettes and would love to own more. They are definitely going on my birthday wish list
This is such a beautiful palette! Look at those golden shimmers! I love that there’s matte shades too. I can only find it on Morphe’s actual site though. Beauty Bay and Cult Beauty don’t seem to have it in stock.
I don’t own a bright eyeshadow palette so this is definitely something I want, no, NEED in my collection. Again, I’m loving the fact there’s both matte and shimmer shades in this palette. Dying to get my hands on it! Imagine all the different looks you could do!
There’s more palettes I want from Morphe but I’ll stick with those. For now.
Juvia’s Place The Magic Palette.
I don’t own any products from Juvia’s Place but I have heard soooo many fab things about their eyeshadow palettes. I would love to have this one in my collection.
Spectrum x Mean Girls Mini Burn Book and Brush Set.
I LOVE the movie Mean Girls and I adore Spectrum brushes. I was so excited when they revealed that they were doing this collab! Roll on tomorrow! They are quite pricey but gosh so pretty!
Lime Crime Metallic Velvetines in Eclipse.
Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare.
I am a huuuuge Shadowhunters fan! I have loved Cassandra Clare’s novels ever since I read the first three in the Mortal Instruments series – so you can imagine how ecstatic I was when she announced she was writing book four! She really sucks you in to the stories and makes you love/hate the characters as if they were your own friends/enemies. If there is a writer I aspire to be like, it is her. I love the Shadowhunters fandom. My sister and I have even cosplayed as Shadowhunters! I did it for LFCC and then we both did it when we went to see City of Bones at the cinema.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer Encyclopedia: The Ultimate Guide to the Buffyverse.
Ahhh Buffy. My first love when it comes to my favourite TV shows. This is where my love of all things paranormal properly began. I am such a nerd when it comes to Buffy haha. I’ve had so much Buffy merch over the years, it’s unreal. I’ve got Buffy on VHS, dvd AND the special collectors edition boxset from back when it was first released. I have Angel too (of course!) as does my fiancé but I refuse to get rid of my boxset because it’s the special edition. 😂 I could go on about Buffy all day but I’ll stop here. 😀
Morganville Season 1.
I loooved the book series by Rachel Caine (If you love your vampires then def check them out!) so I dying to see if the show has done it justice!
Vampire Buffy and Vampire Angel pop figures.
There’s so many other pop figures I want too; Twilight, Game of Thrones, Disney…
Sunnydale High hoody.
Buffy “I slay” bracelet.
Hot Topic have recently brought out some brilliant Buffy merch. This bracelet is on sale at the mo too!
This is another one from Hot Topic. Like I said, I’m a Buffy nerd. Just gimme all the merch!
Pandora Love Makes a Family Charm.
I love my Pandora charms. This will be a suggestion for my other half I think.
Pandora Majestic Swan Charm.
I have a double leather Pandora bracelet and the charms on that are all inspired by books. The swan charm would be a nod to Bella Swan from Twilight.
Pandora Purple Poetic Droplet Ring.
This is another eyeshadow palette that I’ve had my eye on for a while. The shades are all so beautiful!
Zoeva Rose Golden Vol. 2 Complete Eye Brush Set.
I would really love a set of Zoeva brushes. Especially when it comes to eyeshadow as I could do with some more brushes. These particular brushes aren’t cheap but this isn’t called a wish list for nothing lol.
I’m also into crystals (would absolutely love an amethyst geode) and wicca and love black cats! So I’d love anything to do with those. Love anything Beauty and the Beast related too. I’m sure there are many more things that I’d like but have forgotten so for now I shall end it here. I hope you’ve enjoyed reading. 😀
