Christmas gift ideas

25 October 2015

Each year I knock out a handful of wishlists and gift idea posts for Christmas and as I've already started buying this years presents for my friends and family I thought I'd share some of the fab things I've come across along the way. This post is full of a mix of items including makeup, home decor and foods - a good combination to start the process of Christmas gift shopping I think!


My first #LFBeautyBox - the October

24 October 2015

It's been some time since I bought a beauty box let alone a subscription to one so on ordering the Look Fantastic beauty box I awaited my surprise contents almost nervously. My parcel arrived within days of purchasing a subscription online and I'm more than satisfied with the contents, the service and of course, the packaging.


planning a wedding countdown calendar gift

21 October 2015

This post has been a long time coming, since June actually because the countdown began way back then, 3 months before my best friends wedding. On 14th June 2015 I presented my best friend with a pretty box full of wrapped gifts, all dated so that she would have a collection of beautiful and useful things to unwrap in the lead up to her big day!


a very lush christmas

17 October 2015

I've been a fan of Lush products for a very long time so it's always nice when I get invited along to my local in Plymouth for a get together and fun evening talking about the wonderful things they do.

Lush at Christmas time is such a wonderful thing! Every year they release fab gift sets alongside amazing new products that we can't help fall in love with. I was lucky enough to be introduced to and to smell most of this years Christmas range as well as some halloween themed treats. As always everything smells and looks awesome so I took lots of photographs but you'll need to go in-store to witness the scents.

This years have a great variety of designs, shapes, sizes and containers including knot wrap boxes, reuseable storage tins and interactive boxes like the wind up 'Christmas Wishes' tin and 'Human Cannonball' cracker opening gift.
