Have a Beauty Christmas...

Remember to enter my three giveaways by clicking on the pictures at the right. My latest giveaway being a 90ml Lacoste touch of pink bottle of perfume. 

With only four weeks until Christmas, I'm pretty sure most of you are in the spring of things with your wishlist made, your shopping at least half done and maybe some even wrapped. This week I bring to you some of my favourite items I've seen around blogs and maybe give you so inspiration for Christmas, if your yet to write a list for yourself.

First up are these cute Ciate Christmas tree trinkets. I think these are a really cute beauty addition for any beauty obsessive or even sharing between friends for a mini stocking filler.

A classic at Christmas is the big Soap and glory gift set, inside are some of this years best sellers with some classic favourites. We're all on the count down to Boots having the huge discount off this and I believe it's suppose to be early December from what I've heard. 

Clinique Holiday make-up set is presented in a beautiful bold pink box. Inside is a mirror, two Cream Shapers for Eyes, High Impact Extreme Volume Mascara, eight All About Shadow Eyeshadows and two double-ended brushes for application. Everything you need for lovely eyes and the palette is easy enough to pop in your bag if your on the go this Christmas.

The Molton Brown great escape collection is a perfect winter indulgent. With six full-sized treats that will give your skin some much needed TLC and a good pamper. Inside is Pink Pepperpod Body Wash Tube, Pink Pepperpod Nourishing Body Lotion Tube, White Sandalwood Body Wash Tube, Gingerlily Body Wash Bottle, Eucalyptus Body Wash Bottle, Ylang-Ylang Body Wash Bottle. The Ylang-Ylang is one of my favourite body wash scents. 

YSL La Laque Couture Colour Collection is full of 24 luxurious classic shades with a luxurious price tag to match. They don't come cheap at £395.00. But look so pretty is this shiny black YSL case. I don't think I could use them at that price. Maybe display them in a glass cabinet?

I love this Mac Winter 2013 kit - Stroke of Midnight Lip and Cheek Bag: Pink; Featuring Lipstick in How Darling! Lipglass in Soft Spoken, Powder Blush in Formal, Slim Mirror and the 129SE Powder/Blush Brush. Packaged in a sleek black and white clutch, accented with gold piping, zip closure and lined graphic interior. This sets £50.00 and well worth the price tag in my eyes. The shades are stunning and look great for winter.

 I've wanted the Marc Jacobs Dot perfume for what seems like forever. I haven't smelt it yet but what draws me in is the bottle. I know a lot of people love this scent - I have good faith. Whether it's Dot or another, this is one buy (perfume) that will go on a lot of lists this Christmas.

Real Technique sam's picks. These have been a much anticipated set of make-up brushes amongst us bloggers for sometime now and one I imagine will be on a lot of peoples lists this year. They are limited edition and once gone, there gone. I am fortunate enough to have these stored away ready to be given to myself from another already - I can't wait. These are a bargain at less then £30.00, especially for good quality brushes. I have my eye on Real Techniques starter set.

This Nails Inc diary is such good value at just £42.00 inside are 12 full-sized polishes that retail at £11 each. January – bestselling Kensington Caviar 45 second top coat
February – St Martin’s Lane new glossy grape trend polish
March – bestselling Baker Street cobalt blue polish
April – Sloane Avenue new neon coral polish
May – Fulham Palace Gardens new rainbow Sprinkles polish
June – Chester Feather effect polish
July – Notting Hill Gate neon pink polish
August – Fleet Street new Leather effect polish
September – Electric Lane Holographic top coat
October – Belgravia Place red Fibre Optic polish
November – South Kensington silver Foil effect polish
December – Knightsbridge Road new Galaxy polish

Last the UD Naked 3 palette. Containing 12 brand new matte, pearl and metallic shades which range from the most delicate pastel pink to deep black, the set contains every colour you need to give your peepers a hint of subtle shimmer. This is every girls dream come true in one little palette. Though the contents are similar to that of the Naked 1/2 but in one palette if you've not yet got the first and second then you might want to hop straight to the third unless your a Naked superfan. This palette is better then the other two in my eyes with really pretty shades.


  1. Oh wow you got some fab picks here! I recently reviewed that gorgeous Clinique gift set, as well as the Sam's Picks brushes!!! I loveeee the look of the YSL set!! xx

  2. I really want the naked palette 3 but I think I'll wait a while before I make a purchase. The shades are gorgeous, I think its the prettiest palette out of all three of them, xoxo.
