YES its another ruddy Christmas post from another festive feeling blogger! But you have obviously clicked here for a reason, perhaps for some gift inspiration?!
My birthday is Christmas Eve which is super annoying for my friends and family and it means I usually need to write them a list of ideas of gifts they can buy me. This year my list feels pretty long but in this post is just some of my favourites. Maybe this will give you some ideas for your own Christmas list or give you a light bulb moment for a present for that special someone in your life..
Sass & Belle Mr & Mrs Fund
ASOS £10 BUY HERE
If you didn’t know already I recently got engaged in Paris! We haven’t booked anything yet but have started looking at prices and WOWSERS we need to get saving ASAP! This money box is the cutest and would be a good gift for any newly engaged couples to start collecting those pennies!
Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel
Cult Beauty £29.50 BUY HERE
My good friend and beauty obsessive Lara told me about this cleansing gel and boy it sounds like something I need on my bathroom shelf. I am ashamed to admit that I don’t like spending a lot on skin care but after a horrendous bout of breakouts I am venturing into the luxury skincare market in full force. Oskia is a brand i’m excited to try and this Renaissance Cleansing Gel packed with a billion vitamins shall be my place to start.
Real Techniques Brush Cleansing Pallette
Boots £12.99 BUY HERE
There is nothing more mundane but ironically satisfying about cleaning makeup brushes. Its got to be done and you feel fabulous for it afterwards but the actual doing part for me is such a chore. I think this Brush Cleansing Pallette from Real Techniques could be a real game changer for me and it might cut down the time it takes to scrub that war paint from my beautiful brushes.
Team Internet Jumper
H&M £12.99 BUY HERE
Of course I need this jumper, I am all about the internet!! Need I say more.
ASOS £24 BUY HERE
There is something about the words “llama” and “pyjamas” put together that makes me giggle!! I love gimmicky pyjamas (as long as they aren’t covered in emojis or pokemon) and this set from ASOS is top of my PJ list this Crimbo.
Sweet Almond and Macaroon Candle
Jo Malone £42 BUY HERE
Christmas wouldn’t be complete for me if I didn’t get to unwrap a new candle. I’m quite fussy about scents though and I’m not happy unless it is overly sick sweet and in a fancy jar! Sweet Almond and Macroon smells DIVINE you could almost eat it and like all JM candles it lasts absolutely ages.
Lipstick in shade “Almost Pink”
Bobbi Brown £21 BUY HERE
“Almost Pink” is the perfect nude for my skin tone. Its pink without being too pink and peach without being.. yeah you guessed it.. too peach. The formula is creamy, not too sheer or too matte and wears off lovely in case you don’t have time for top ups.
HydrateM8 Water Bottle
HydrateM8 £13.99 BUY HERE
I am so terrible at drinking enough water but I find my body needs hydrating constantly. I have heard rave reviews about the physiological concept of these HydrateM8 water bottles and I think it could really help me to drink my much needed 2 litres a day. This limited edition black version is my fave!
Zoeva Cocoa Blend Eyeshadow Palette
Beauty Bay £18 BUY HERE
I think every single shade in the Cocoa Blend Pallette by Zoeva is beautiful and totally wearable for Autumn/Winter. I am a HUGE fan of Zoeva brushes but I haven’t tried their makeup before so I would love to give these shadows a whirl. I also think that £18 is such a reasonable price for a high end palette like this.
iPhone 7 Golden Ice Marble Phone Case
Madotta £25 BUY HERE
My friend Claudia pointed these beeeeeaaauuuttiful cases out to me a few months ago and I’ve been lusting after one ever since! I must admit I usually buy myself the 99p cases off Ebay that last all but one week and don’t actually protect my phone in any way whatsoever so it would be nice to have a more expensive and practical case.
Alice Weekly Schedule Diary
The Magic Notebook £10 BUY HERE
I have used an Alice Weekly Schedule for the last 3 years now. They are basically dateless diaries that you can start at any time of the year and you can customise them with pretty stickers etc. This one is inexpensive, pretty and small enough to fit in your handbag!
Viktor & Rolf Bon Bon EDP
Boots £63.45 BUY HERE
As I mentioned I am all about the super sickly sweet scents and Viktor and Rolfs Bon Bon is exactly that. It is so sweet you will be walking around smelling like a candy shop but a good candy shop! I know that scent is such a personal thing but I really think its hard not to like Bon Bon
