“NOTHING BEATS THE EXCITEMENT OF UNWRAPPING LITTLE TREASURES!”
My favourite part of present buying has to be the stocking fillers! I love browsing the shops and online in search of things that jump out at me screaming ‘this is PERFECT for…!” Thoughtful, personal and fun – nothing beats the excitement of unwrapping little treasures and getting to know how well someone knows you!
So whether you’re a skincare junkie, makeup lover or adore having a pamper evening – here’s a few of my top picks (and here’s hoping you might like a few for yourselves too! 😉 )
FOR THE BEAUTY LOVERS
I’m all about the luxurious facial oils come winter time, so naturally this Rodin set (how stunning is the packaging!) would make a glorious addition to any skincare lovers regime! Perfect for travelling these babies are a skin transforming, game changer! Also for the face is the brand new Time Bomb Divine Intervention oil, blending together ancient sacred oils, Frankincense and Myrrh amongst other things (what a fab, festive mix!) to deliver supple, glowing skin. Follow your nightly oil ritual with the Gatineau White Jade facial roller to help de puff, relax and tone. I also love the history behind the stone, believed to have healing, calming and protective properties and helps strengthen the body’s natural defences. To help keep your glow throughout winter, pop on a few drops of James Read face drops to help give you a radiant complexion. Just add to your moisturiser and a flawless tan develops. Last but not least – a winter essential; lip balm. Treat your smackers to an intense hit from the Kiehl’s buttermask for lips, smells delish and is a great overnight treat. For daytime, swipe across Dr Lipp Lip Colour tint for a fresh, dewy colour whilst also keeping them in tip, top condition!
For the makeup lovers amongst us; I bring to you my latest obsession; Artistry Studio, available at Amway. Probably some of the highest delivering products I’ve tried for a long time, I’m utterly obsessed with their pieces, with my faves being the Mascara (the brush magically extends so it’s like 2 in 1 and nothing has made my lashes look longer before!) as well as the highlight compact (how amaze are the lights) I’ve always struggled to find a natural looking highlighter and this is the most diverse by far with 3 different tones!
New in from Rodin are these glorious lippies, because who doesn’t want a rich, red, lip come Christmas and New Year? Each is enriched with hydrating and soothing oils (bye, bye, dry lips!) but with a long lasting finish (perfect for party season then!) Beautifully curated and with minimalist yet striking packaging; this is definitely one for make up lovers not to miss out on!
I‘ve been a long term lover of Johnny Loves Rosie; a well loved and affordable, accessories brand. I’ve been solidly wearing my Rose Gold Pendant for the last few months and it never fails to reap in the compliments! From headbands, vegan leather handbags, earrings and sentimental bracelets, their pieces would make a really thoughtful gift, without the heavy price tag!
Something that also caught my eye and what would not only make a lovely gift for a loved one, but also yourself, is Happiful Magazine. They’re on a mission to break the stigma around mental health to create a happier and healthier society. They provide not only informative content, but also inspiring stories and wellbeing tips. It’s positive, it’s unique and I’m personally completely over the moon with the concept. It also makes for a really lovely and different commuting read too, totally different to most content we devour.
I will never tire of getting gifts to make bath time even more of a luxury! These Being By Sanctuary bath bombs are literally the best I’ve ever come across and fill a room with scent (I love the caramel ones too!) Pop in your evening pamper session bath tub and place a couple in your drawers or baskets to refreshen rooms and spaces; the scents really do last so I’ve started to put them to multi-use! Likewise, the Sanctuary Spa Melt Away Candle smells divine and I’ve always got one burning on my bath shelf once a week to really indulge and relax the day away! I also love treating my locks to anything Percy and Reed and this little travel duo is no exception! It comes in a handy case and is the perfect amount for a long holiday or to keep in your travel bag for weekends away! I always love how lightweight it leaves my hair feeling and this would make a fab, little socking filler!
