Signing off for the festive season......

 


I'm finishing up for the year a little earlier than normal this year. I just feel so burnt out after the year I've had, so I need a little break before Christmas or else I'll sleep through the whole day! I'm going to spend time watching Christmas films, listening to festive music and generally chilling out. Anyone working in retail, I feel for you, as I did it part-time all of the way through university. If you are going to the shops over the next week, please have patience and treat the staff kindly, and with respect.

Last minute Christmas Gift Guide 2021 for all budgets...

 

Last minute Christmas Gift Guide 2021 for all budgets

I know that this is quite last minute, but a lot of people like to leave their shopping until Christmas week! I know two people who leave it until Christmas Eve - I think I'd come out in a rash (but then again, I have over 20 to buy for!)! Today's post is for all of the last minute shoppers, as there is still time for delivery (just about!), so let's get into it. As always, anything marked with a * was kindly gifted to me, without obligation.

Books and Journals that will help you stick to your goals

Books and Journals that will help you stick to your goals

It's that time of year, where many people are looking forward to getting into a new year. I personally don't believe that you need to wait for a particular month, to make changes to your life, but a lot of people see January as the perfect time to make resolutions and new plans for their life, Today, I want to share some books and journals that I personally enjoy and find useful, and even if you aren't in the "make improvements to your life" mindset yourself, they could make nice Christmas gifts for people who love fresh starts, or just want to make improvements in one area of their life.

The best tools and products for achieving waves in your hair (and making them last)

The best tools and products for achieving waves in your hair (and making them last)
None of these products were sent to me.

Before I start, I'll make it clear that I'm not a hairdresser, or even a hair expert - I'm a total amateur, but over the last 12-18 months, I have found myself wearing my hair in waves more often than straight. I think since getting it balayaged, it shows the blend of colours better when it's waved (although I do love smooth, sleek hair too). It has taken me some time to be able to achieve waves that I am happy with, so I thought that I'd share what I use with you, in case any other total novices want to try to create some waves in their hair over the festive period. Remember - I'm no expert........

Luxury Christmas Gift Guide 2021

Luxury Christmas Gift Guide 2021
None of these items were gifted to me (I wish!)

In case you couldn't already tell, I'm a huge fan of Christmas, and an even bigger fan of Christmas shopping! This is my eighth gift guide this year, and not my last, but don't worry, there's just one more to come after this! Today, I'm focusing on luxury products - bags, shoes and accessories. I'm not talking Chanel or Dior (although, I wouldn't say no!), so in comparison to those brands, some of these may seem relatively reasonable! I have products for those who are starting out with their collection, right up to handbags, so depending on your budget, hopefully you'll find something for your loved one (or yourself), and if I have any discount codes, I will include them! It is definitely worth installing Karma, as it automatically searches the net for discount codes for you, plus you can earn money on some sites, which you can withdraw to your PayPal account.

Fenty Skin overview

Fenty Skin overview
These products were kindly gifted to me, without obligation.

 I was lucky enough to be sent some Fenty Beauty products a few months ago, which I reviewed here, and I was also sent some Fenty skincare, which I was delighted about, as I had only tried the Body Butta Whipped Oil Body Cream previously (and loved it!).  It takes longer to test skincare which is why it's taken me three months since receiving the products to share my thoughts, so let's get started!

A Charlotte Tilbury Christmas
Everything, apart from one lipstick, was kindly gifted to me, without obligation.

I had to dedicate a whole post to Charlotte Tilbury Christmas releases, because there are so many beautiful products, and something for all budgets!

A L'Occitane Christmas

 

A L'Occitane Christmas
These products were kindly sent to me, without obligation.

Every year I say it - you can't beat L'Occitane for their festive packaging! What's even better, is that apart from being so bright and cheery, it's also fully recyclable (although I'll be keeping the boxes to store things in - they're too pretty to part with!). This year, the limited edition ranges include fragrance and bath & body products. These products can be bought individually, or in sets, where you can make a saving. I know that I would be thrilled to find anything from this brand under the tree on Christmas morning!
