I can hardly believe another year has come around so quickly.
Happy Blog Birthday to me! I couldn't have imagine when I started Love, Life and Makeup back in 2011 all of the great experiences I would have, the amazing people I would meet and the creative outlet I would love.

I love how creative you can be when it comes to wrapping presents, sometimes you just need a little inspiration. I have collected some of my favourite ideas (from Pinterest) for DIY Christmas wrapping to share with you.
