Christmas shopping funny quote

For the last five or more years, I have always bought myself a little end-of-year treat (ok, a few treats) for Christmas and this year is no exception. Today, I’m sharing my crème de la crème of beautiful things – they make the perfect ‘gift to self’ or brilliant last minute Christmas gifts for your mom, sister and bff…

Frends Headphones reviewWrapped in white luxe leather with silver hardware and star pattern ear cups, these Frends Headphones are seriously chic! The ear cushions are even angled so they don’t interfere with your earrings, how genius is that? The design is collapsible too, so they fold into a little carry pouch and can easily fit in your handbag.

My Stylish Gift Guide (and the Best Gifts To Self!)

 

Kusmi Tea Jean Paul Gaultier Tea Box Set detox tea french teaI love love love this Jean Paul Gaultier Tea Chest, from Kusmi Tea! As soon as you open it, you’re greeted with the most wonderful scent. It’s huge and the hat-box inspired design with sailor stripes and a red pom-pom was dressed by designer Jean Paul Gaultier. It includes 42 French luxury tea bags, with flavors such as Sweet Love and BB Detox from the Wellness collection, plus classic spearmint green tea. The presentation is so beautiful, I’ll be keeping this box and refilling the tea bags as needed – a fabulous way to serve tea when friends come over!

Dermaflash exfoliation at home cosmetic sephora I have read so much about this new beauty treatment (it’s been a long-time secret of the stars and Hollywood dermatologists) and when renowned plastic surgeon Terry Dubrow spoke about this method of gaining more youthful looking skin, I knew I had to try it! DermaFlash has just launched online at Sephora (it will be in Sephora stores nationwide from January 4) and it’s bound to be a top seller. Basically, the DermaFlash brings medspa-inspired exfoliation to your home. It removes skin imperfections with a sonic vibration, plus removes peach fuzz – so your makeup will glide on and your skin will look much smoother.

OPI Starlight collection holiday 2015 nail jewels nail art glitter polishThe new OPI Starlight Collection is ahhhmazing! Perfect for the holidays and beyond, you’ll find 18 limited edition nail colors, plus special gift sets including ‘Catch A Falling Star’ (below), ‘Over The Moon For Gold‘ and ‘StarLight’, a gorgeous box full of Swarovski crystals to create stunning professional nail art at home!

OPI Starlight collection holiday 2015 nail jewels nail art glitter polishCreating your own nail art at home has never been easier! This luxe Star Light kit includes lots of Swarovski crystals in different designs and colors… be prepared to get stopped by admirers, this kit turns a regular mani into something super special! I had so much fun dressing up my mani (and it was super easy too).

SL8 Jeans distressed jeans I’m sure I am not alone in the hunt for the perfect distressed skinny jeans, well, call off the search – I found them! These Blank NYC jeans are the absolute best I’ve ever tried and at only $88, they won’t break the bank. I love the look of distressed jeans, but still want something polished (and not too distressed)… I couldn’t be happier with these super-soft blue jeans!

Dove shampoo conditioner reviewThanks to Dove, I was able to try their new Oxygen Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner and I would totally recommend it. I love having volume to my hair, so don’t like products that weigh it down. This range has brand new Oxyfusion Technology (oxygen-infused moisturising ingredients), which made my hair full, but also super soft and smooth. Yay!

Bailey44 stripe dress black white navy best stripe dressThis is the dress every stylish woman needs! I can’t get enough of classic stripe dresses and this Bailey44 Signature Stripe Dress is perfection. I found it really flattered my figure (the stripes are on an angle, so it’s slimming!) and looks fab dressed up with heels and boots, or sneakers and ballet flats for day time. I’ve been styling it with a denim jacket and also my leather jacket – love love love this dress! Bailey44 are also doing a huge $1,000 Gift Card Giveaway, to enter just add your name and email address! Easy!

Lumixyl Revitaleyes review eye creamMy sister and I have always disliked the dark circles under our eyes and have tried lots of products over the years to help reduce them. I recently tried this Lumixyl Revitaleyes treatment and found it actually worked really well, so I wanted to share it if you have dark circles too! I did a little reading and it’s the first and only eye treatment with decapeptide-12, which can help correct dark circles, dryness, fine lines and crow’s feet. (There are lot’s of online retailers who stock this, but if you want more info I found quite a few reviews here and thought I’d share).

Gossamer G String Set underwearI adore beautiful, comfortable and stylish underwear and this Gossamer Mesh Hip-G set is one of my favorites! It’s seamless and comes in a great range of colors (two neutral shades, perfect for under white clothes and gorgeous bright hues, the pink is my fave). The set of six is $75 (valued at $90).

Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water reviewI’ve read so much about Micellar Cleansing Water lately (it’s been a long-standing beauty secret of French women) and when people start calling something their “holy grail” product, I get super excited to try it myself! This is the new Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water and I have to say, I really love it. It’s much more gentle than my other cleansers and it removes eye liner and mascara easily (yay! I never want to rub my eye area, I just know when I’m 60 I’ll regret it). If you’re looking for a new cleanser (I always find it fun trying brand new products) or a great stocking filler for your mom and sister, I definitely give it my tick of approval. Has anyone else tried it? Would love to hear your thoughts!

Frends headphones reviewWrapped in white luxe leather with silver hardware and star pattern ear cups, these Frends Headphones are seriously chic! The ear cushions are even angled so they don’t interfere with your earrings, how genius is that? The design is collapsible too, so they fold into a little carry pouch and can easily fit in your handbag.
