There are some amazing Emma Hardie gift sets this year, with some great savings to be found, so if you’re an Emma Hardie fan then now is a great time to stock up.  As it’s Christmas (did you know that…?) it’s also the perfect time…

For the Die-Hard Mask Fan

I’m pretty much referring to myself when writing “die-hard mask fan” as I really do love a good mask treatment; I think, when done right, it can be one of the best ways to address any skin issues and get skin back on the right…

For The One Who Deserves the Prettiest Makeup

Is there anything more lovely than a really pretty set of make-up? Especially when presented as a gift, as I think it’s such a great way to try new products or even an entirely new range.  If you haven’t heard of Decorte yet, this beautiful…

Christmas Candles

I really do love Christmas candles so much; I don’t feel like anything is properly “Christmassy” unless there’s a Christmas fragrance burning away in the background.  Candles tap into the often neglected sense of smell, a sense that I particularly find so evocative when it…

Philosophy Candy Cane Shower Gel

One of the many things I love about Christmas is the way tradition suddenly becomes important; there are old traditions, like the Christmas dinner, carol singing, decorating the tree and binging on absolutely every kind of indulgence, then there are the newer ones that remind…

Ten Last Minute Gifts for A Beauty Lover

It’s been an intense December for me, full of Christmas gift features, as I’ve had some many products I wanted to share with you and squeezing them all in time has been a battle! This post is the last of my Christmas Gift Guide posts…

Christmas with NYX Professional Makeup

I absolutely love NYX Professional Makeup and I think they’re one of the very best (if not THE best) budget/high street brands around.  They don’t do anything by half, which is perfectly exemplified by their Christmas gift collection which is absolutely massive.  I have a…

Beauty-ful Christmas Tree Decorations

There are so many lovely Christmas tree decorations from beauty brands out this year, that I thought I’d put together a little lost of some of the better ones including ornaments, mini sets and crackers.  There’s a decoration for every budget and taste, with some…

Christmas with bareMinerals

I am all about the bareMinerals festive joy at the moment, thanks to the fact that I’m making my way through their gorgeous Advent Calendar (keep an eye on my Instagram if you want to see what’s inside) plus I also have some of their…
