Hello friends! I’ve just finished off my latest gift guide, and this is definitely a good one! Full of luxury treats, there should be enough to inspire you for an extra special gift for a loved one, or even a little something for yourself this Christmas – enjoy! ūüôā

The creamy, ultra-smooth formula is enriched with jasmine and neroli oils, as well as Vitamin C and E nourish and soften, and the shades included are –¬†Heavenly Hopp,¬†So Mod,¬†Red Hedy,¬†Loving Lucy, and Billie on the Bike.

For skincare, the StriVectin Anti-Wrinkle Duo Set¬†is definitely worth a look. Containing a pair of anti-ageing products to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, the kit promises to help you give you a firmer, brighter and younger-looking complexion. The set includes –

For 2018, the iconic glass bust is wearing a sweet red Christmas jumper dress, housed in a fully functioning snow globe.

If you’re feeling¬†particularly¬†spendy, how about¬†Serge Lutens¬†Un Bois Vanille Eau De Parfum?

Its floral and fruity softness reveals itself through one of China’s most precious materials, Osmanthus. Whilst smooth and sumptuous¬†notes of Benzoin from Laos, and the Brazilian Tonka Bean blend to create a delicate and unforgettable fragrance.

Another fragrance idea is new release, Estee Lauder Beautiful Belle EDP. This beautiful floral oriental scent is wonderfully romantic, feminine, and sensual. With top notes of Lychee, Rose Petals and Mimosa, a rich floral heart of Orange Flower, Gardenia and Tuberose, and Orris Root, a Blush Suede Accord, Marzipan Musk and Ambrox at the base. This is a must try for fans of Estee Lauder fragrances.

Deeply romantic, it’s a fragrance inspired by the exotic, the unexpected and the unknown. The set includes a 50ml¬†Wonderlust Eau de Parfum, 10ml¬†Rollerball and a Michael Kors¬†Rose Gold Card Holder.

I also had to include a little indulgent treat from Jo Malone.

This beautifully warm feminine fragrance combines precious Jasmine Sambac with vibrant Marigold,¬†exotic Ylang Ylang, and rich Benzoin Resin, rounded off with a base of warm Vanilla and Amber.

The Luxe Sport Christmas Gift Guide with The Sports Edit

Posted on

I was recently introduced to¬†The Sports Edit, Europe’s leading destination for premium, stylish sportswear and I wanted to share some of their gorgeous products with you today!

If you’re not aware of The Sports Edit, they’re a relatively new company who have quickly established themselves¬†as the go-to destination for carefully curated premium activewear. They scour the globe looking for¬†the best diverse, innovative and emerging brands, enabling them to offer customers only the highest quality products. The Sports Edit cover four key areas – running, gym, studio and lifestyle for both men and women, and stock brands including Under Armour, PE Nation, Beyond Yoga, Calvin Klein and Veja to name just a few.

Let’s start with the¬†Adidas by Stella McCartney UltraBoost Trainers¬†– I adore these trainers! This is my first new pair in a long time, and they fit like a glove! Featuring¬†Continental rubber to look after your feet in both¬†wet and dry conditions, as well as Adidas’ signature responsive boost midsole and stabilising torsion system, these trainers are made to work with your movement,¬†adapting and adjusting to the changing shape of your foot as you run. The gorgeous peachy pink colour is of course true to Stella McCartney’s aesthetic, making them look as good as they feel – so if you’re looking for a high end pair of trainers this Christmas I’d definitely recommend checking these out!

And to go with the trainers, I have a pair of Stance Windy Tab Socks. I thought the colours matched rather well! These socks really are top notch, and would make the perfect affordable gift for someone that takes working out seriously. They feature medium cushioning where your feet naturally make contact with the ground, while individual fits for the right and left foot offer customized arch support. They also have a reinforced toe and heel for added durability, while breathable performance mesh keeps your feet cool while you work out.

I also can’t wait to start using the¬†Manduka Pro Yoga Mat. This best-selling Manduka Pro yoga mat features a new ‚ÄėMechi‚Äô blue colour for the winter season, which has a lovely shimmery, opalescent finish. This mat offers amazing grip, as well as super plush cushioning so you don’t need to worry about your joints on hard surfaces.¬†It‚Äôs also toxic free and latex free, it won’t¬†absorb moisture or bacteria, and it’s guaranteed for life – you can’t get better than that!

The¬†MZ Wallace Rose Gold Small Metro Backpack¬†would also make a wonderful addition to your gym kit. This bag is light yet durable, made with MZ Wallace’s¬†signature Quilted Oxford Nylon which resists both water and stains whilst¬†never losing its shape. This beautiful metallic rose gold bag really has a super luxe feel – with its custom¬†hardware, convenient compartments and zippered pockets, it’s perfect for carrying your kit anywhere you go.

An essential for any gym goer is of course a decent water bottle. This striking¬†S’well 500ml Water Bottle¬†will look amazing in your kit as well as being incredibly practical and long wearing. The Blue Granite bottle is part of the S’Well Elements collection, inspired by the earth, this bottle has a beautiful blue and white marbled, stone-look finish, while the bottle itself is¬†BPA free and made from double-walled, non-toxic stainless steel which helps keep your drinks cold for 24 hours and hot for 12 hours.

For clothing, how about a matching activewear set from luxury fashion line Koral? Koral develop and utilise the finest technical fabrics to design fashion-forward pieces that feel luxurious, look effortless, and last through infinite wears and washings.

Their¬†High Rise Frame Leggings in Chromuim¬†are created with Koral’s¬†signature fabric, Evanesce, which¬†offers incredible support, durable stretch and high compression, increasing oxygen delivery to active muscles and reducing lactic acid build-up and muscle fatigue. They feature¬†angled panelling in Chromium, Marsala and Mesh that give the leggings a high quality, polished look and feel. They also go perfectly with the¬†Kingley Sports Bra¬†– specifically built for high performance activities, this sports bra features an elasticated underband, fully lined bust, and T-bar back¬†in elasticated mesh, to provide both¬†comfort and support while you work out.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this as something a little different today! I’d love to hear if you’ve picked up any new sportswear lately? xx

A Few Ideas For A Christmas Tipple…

Posted on December 18, 2018

I do love to treat myself to a few beverages at Christmas time, Bailey’s and Archers have always my go-to favourites, but I’ve recently been trying out a few new drinks from brands I’d never heard of – read on to hear my thoughts on a few fabulous drinks that are prefect for the festive season!

Let’s start with¬†Gin Ting Premium Dry Gin. How gorgeous is this bottle though!? Gin has really been having a moment lately, and there have been countless new brands and flavours popping up over the last couple of years.¬†Gin Ting is definitely one to add to your ‘To Try’ list – it’s hand crafted & produced in small batches to ensure quality,¬†using the finest botanicals & natural flavours. Gin Ting’s¬†mission is to create a clear, fresh, fruity Gin – and they have definitely succeeded!

This wonderfully unique gin is distilled with the finest Juniper Berries along with Cassia Bark, Coriander Seeds, Orange & Lemon Peel, plus a few other secret botanicals. It’s also infused¬†with¬†Passionfruit, Mango and Elderflower, anda subtle hint of Grapefruit, to give a very different take on gin as you know it. This is a must have for gin fanatics!

On the theme of gin, for something a little different, how about this lovely set of flavoured liqueurs?¬†This Carthy & Black Gift Set¬†includes 3x 50cl bottles of award-winning Yorkshire Cream Liqueurs¬†‚Äď included you’ll find their Original Cream Liqueur,¬†Gin Cream Liqueur and Lemon Gin Cream Liqueur.¬†¬†Each is created using the freshest cream, and either the finest Irish whiskey or award-winning¬†Slingsby Gin

My husband and I sat down the other night to try these out. First up was the¬†Lemon Gin Cream Liqueur – on initial sniff I said to my husband, OMG this smells EXACTLY like cheesecake, and he said the same! It also tastes exactly like cheesecake. If you’re a fan of super sweet desserts you’ll love this. The¬†Gin Cream Liqueur was probably my second favourite, not as sweet or lemony as the previous drink, yet still very good. And lastly the¬†Original Cream Liqueur, this is whisky based, and it’s basically a fancy, sweeter Bailey’s, with a strong toffee / caramel flavour.

On to wine now, I have a bottle of¬†The Owl & The Dust Devil Red Wine¬†– this handcrafted environmentally-friendly red wine is just superb! It’s¬†fermented in¬†620¬†litre French oak barrels to add layers of complexity and structure to the wine. Violet aromatics of the Malbec compliment the darker notes and structural backbone of the Cabernet Sauvignon whilst the abundant Petit Verdot and Tannat in this wine provide considerable richness and tannins. The wine has been matured for¬†18¬†months in smaller French oak barrels prior to release. The Owl & The Dust Devil is smooth, silky and rich, definitely a must try this Christmas!

Or how about Cadello? Inspired by what the Venetian nobles would have served at their masked balls during the Venetian Empire, Cadello is a very unique, nuanced, smooth liqueur. It’s made from eight Italian ingredients, and produced by a 150 year-old, family owned distillery.¬†There are plenty of tempting flavours to be found in this drink, including coffee, chocolate, cocoa, star anise and vanilla, as well as hints of hazelnut, mint, caramel and toffee. If you fancy trying something a little different, I’d highly recommend this.

And lastly, a fantastic treat for yourself as well as the perfect gift idea for whisky fans –¬†The Summerton Club. Offering a simple way to try rare and unique spirits that you definitely won’t find in your local supermarket – the Summerton Club is a subscription service where you can discover a world of fantastic drinks without leaving the comfort of your home.

I have their October bottle of the month,¬†Mackmyra Gruvguld Swedish Single Malt Whisky.¬†Gruvguld is a Swedish whisky created with local ingredients, that isn’t currently available in the UK.¬†Meaning ‚ÄėGold from the Mine‚Äô, Gruvguld is a wonderfully smooth Swedish Single Malt Whisky – it’s perfect for a luxurious treat this Christmas!

I’d love to hear which festive drinks are your favourite? xx

Must Have Festive Candles for Winter 2018

Posted on December 12, 2018

One of the things I love about winter time is firing up the wood burner, settling down with a nice Christmas film, a hot drink, and lighting a festive candle to fragrance my living room. I have a few gorgeous candles to share with you today that will look fantastic in your home, as well as filling your rooms with scents of the season ūüôā

The Boy Smells¬†Cedar Stack Candle¬†is my second candle from niche brand Boy Smells, it features a wonderfully warm, woodsy scent, with notes of cedarwood chips, dried tobacco, bay leaf and crushed peppercorn, as well as sweeter notes of juniper and white musk, and it lasts for up to 55 hours which is fantastic. This fragrance is just beautiful, I’ve just started burning it in my living room and I can’t get enough of it!

One of my favourite budget brands, Flamingo Candles, always release a fantastically kitsch and colourful selection for Christmas. I particularly love this fun¬†Deck Your Halls Candle¬†– it’s scented with their Ice Queen fragrance, a super sweet blend of bubblegum, pear drops and vanilla ice-cream, and has a burn time of up to 50 hours.

I also have their¬†Christmas Pudding Pink Candle, scented with yummy Christmas Pudding, including notes of raisins, sultanas, figs and apples enriched with cinnamon, almonds, orange peel.¬†And the¬†Prosec-Ho-Ho-Ho Candle¬†–¬†with a lovely Candy Cane Prosecco fragrance, created with notes of sweet peppermint, vanilla and fizzy prosecco.

Going back to more classic Christmas fragrances now, the Beatitude Christmas Comfort Candle is perfect for creating a warming atmosphere in your home. It offers up to 40 hours burn time, and this gorgeous festive fragrance combines soothing floral notes with uplifting citrus oils and spicy festive oils to infuse your rooms with the scent of Christmas Comfort.

The¬†Heyland & Whittle Winter Spice Candle¬†smells exactly as you’d expect – warm, spicy and luxurious. With festive notes of¬†orange, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove this candle will make your home smell wonderfully festive for the whole Christmas season.

And the Skandinavisk TRÆ Candle Рthis one perfectly captures the delicate scent of wintery coniferous forests and freshly fallen snow. This mini 60g candle will give up to 16 hours burn time, whilst filling your home with bright and fresh woody notes of fir, limonene, peppermint, pine and snow.

And last but not least, the gorgeous La Montana Three Kings Candle. This luxurious candle will burn for at least 40 hours, and offers a uniquely decadent Christmas fragrance, with notes of cedarwood mingled with trampled pine needles, frankincense and myrrh, almond nougat, and a brightening tot of brandy. Just beautiful!

I’d love to hear which scented candles you’ve been burning lately? xx
