Come the colder months I find it impossible to resist the warmer, deeper scents in my stash. I love the more fruity, floral and almost holiday-in-a-bottle scents of spring and summer, but they just don't quite cut it in winter.
This time of year everyone is planning something festive, whether it's a dinner with friends, a work Christmas party or just family visiting to celebrate the festive season. It's the time of year when you need products you can rely on, and with my partner's work Christmas party tonight, I thought I'd share the products I'll be relying on.
If there's one thing Birchbox always get right, it's their collaboration boxes. For the December box* they've teamed up with accessories designer Sophia Webster. The box itself is beautifully designed with a pale duck-gg blue adorned with different colours, shapes and sizes of super pretty jewels. The collaboration doesn't stop there, with a product inside the December box being an exclusive from Sophia Webster. Let's get stuck in shall we?
With just one week until Christmas, you have just a few days to sort those last minute presents out. I've shared quite a few Christmas gift guides with you all over the past few weeks, and today's gift guide is full of my favourite home and fashion finds!
Toner is one of those products that most people don't see the point in, but a step I have always had in my routine ever since I first started using skincare in my very early teens. Over the years I've made my way through quite a few, from both high-street and high-end brands. My skin just works better when I use toner, and on those few occasions I've skipped toner it's easy to see the effect it has on my skin, making me realise just how important toner is in a good skincare routine.
There's only 10 sleeps left until Christmas, so if you're still finishing off your Christmas presents and you're not sure what to get your loved ones, you don't have long left. Don't worry though, as I've got a whole ton of gorgeous beauty gift ideas to share with you all!
I am a complete cliché this time of year. Everything changes; my makeup stash is full of berry tones, my fragrances are warmer and muskier in scent and every room is filled with festively scented candles. I love it. But every now and then, I need a break away from the warm, sweet and spicy scents, something a little more uplifting.
We never had proper Christmas stockings when I was growing up. Instead of having a stocking on the fireplace, we'd come down on Christmas morning to find pillowcases laid out full to the brim with presents. It might not be as pretty and traditional as a beautiful Christmas stocking, but it's one of my fondest memories of Christmas as a child; a full pillowcase. Stocking fillers are a great way to share the festive spirit and joy without breaking the bank - and they don't necessarily have to go in a Christmas stocking! Here's my top pick of budget-friendly stocking fillers and Christmas gifts.
