What I Got For Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone. I hope you had a lovely day and are enjoying New Year’s Eve. Before I start writing about the New Year, I thought I would share what I got for Christmas.

bare minerals

The first thing I received was this amazing Bare Minerals Happy Glow Lucky gift set. I really need a decent Winter skincare routine and this should help me achieve a clearer complexion.

naked palette

I have been lusting after a Naked Eye Palette from Urban Decay for as long as I can remember. Andy bought me the original set and I am in love! Annabelle has been desperate to use it but it is definitely going to be hidden out of reach.

oliver bonas

On my Christmas Wish List post, I mentioned this Oliver Bonas Cookbook Stand. It is now sold out but I have added the link in case they restock it. It is described as copper coloured but looks rose gold to me so it is a thing of beauty!

snow fairy

If you know me, you will know that I think Snow Fairy is one of the best scents ever! It is only fitting then that I was given this box from Lush from my brother-in-law. If you haven’t smelt this before it reminds me of eating Wham sweets when I was a child.

Finally, I was given lots of treats and little goodies including a pair of black gloves from Marks and Spencer, Lindt chocolate and Cornish Lust. The latter is a strawberry flavoured creamy liqueur. It is just like Baileys but nicer! It is also available in Tesco so you don’t have to go all the way down to Cornwall to get your hands on some.

What did you get for Christmas this year? Let me know in the comments below. Bx

A Lush Christmas – Blogmas Day 22

I am a massive fan of Lush. I love the smell of their products and the way it makes my skin and hair feel after use. I have quite sensitive skin so when I use their shampoo and conditioners, it never irritates my scalp.

I popped in to the Bath store recently to pick up a couple of gifts for Christmas. This is what I chose:


Christmas Angel Bath Bomb
With some of my favourite scents including cocoa butter, almond oil and spearmint this pretty pink angel looks and smells delicious. I am not a huge fan of baths but I think something frothy and luxurious like this may possibly convert me!

Snow Fairy
This snow fairy set contains the shower gel, which is one of my most-loved skin care products. It also has a ‘make your own snow fairy’ bar which has multiple uses as a sort of dough that can be used as bubble bath, shampoo, soap or just to create little figures.

The Magic of Christmas
How cute is this reusable bath bar? It is a wand with a cinnamon stick to hold. It is glittery with cloves, a dinky little bell in the shape of star. I think it is ideal as a little stocking filler or part of a set of bath and beauty gifts.

Lastly, I chose two Santa products, one body butter bar and the other a Peeping Santa Bubble Bar just to give a cute extra gift.

Do you have any favourite Christmas products from Lush? Bx
