Ultimate Christmas Gift Guide For Her

This year along with my gift guide videos that are coming your way in the next few weeks I also thought I would put together the ultimate Christmas gift guide for women. This is essentially a list of products that I would absolutely love to receive but I think I've included a nice list of items that any lovely lady would be delighted to open on Christmas day. All of the images are clickable and will take you straight to the item, which saves you the hassle of searching! 

The number one item I'm lusting after this year is the Hourglass Ambient Palette from Space NK. It's the palette of dreams for a make up addict like myself and I'm sure many others! Ladies, pass this post onto your boyfriend for some seriously heavy hinting. Now who's excited for Christmas?

Burberry Festive Gold Collection

Burberry Festive Gold Collection

I think I've found the most beautiful collection of Christmas 2015. Let me introduce you to the stunning Burberry Festive Gold Collection, and if you're easily coveted look away now. The whole campaign is absolutely stunning and every product from the collection comes in golden packaging printed with the iconic burberry tartan pattern. The range contains new Lipsticks, Nail Polishes, Liquid and Powder Highlight, Lipglosses and an Eye Shadow Cream

Firstly I want to discuss my favourite product, the Gold Glow Luminising Powder in Gold No.01, which is scented with the My Burberry fragrance. In the pan it looks quite dull, but when swatched it turns into the most beautiful golden highlight. It also comes with a stunning velvet pouch with a flat brush that is perfect for applying highlight at the top of the cheek bone. although the brush is so beautiful I find with this product it doesn't quite go, as I prefer to use a bigger, fluffier brush to dust the powder across my face. I use this powder more as a setting illuminating powder instead of a highlight as I think it adds a really lovely glow to the complexion. 

Next is the limited edition burberry kisses in the shades Military Red and Festive Gold. I'm a huge fan of the Burberry Kisses lipsticks, they're so buttery and moisturising so I love that they have brought out some festive shades. Military Red  is a really punchy vibrant red and perfect for the Christmas party season, especially in the stunning golden packaging. 

Lastly is the Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base in Nude Radiance, which is a light base you apply before foundation to give a glowing finish to the skin. This adds a really subtle glow to your skin so if you don't like too much highlight then this will be perfect for you. Being someone who loves the highlighted look I think this combined with the Luminising Powder will create the perfect party look and I can't wait to use them together!

Autumn and Winter really are my favourite time of the year, I'm definitely someone that loves it when the days get colder and the evenings get darker. I think one of the reasons why I love this time of year so much is because of the clothes you get to wear, I love big chunky knits and knee high boots as I think it's a really easy way to throw on an outfit and look fashionable and chic. This is one of my favourite knits at the moment as it's oversized enough to wear as a jumper dress but it also has a huge turtle neck. 

If you follow me on Instagram you'll have seen many images of this Aspinal of London Marylebone Tote bag and that's mainly because I'm absolutely obsessed with it. Burgundy is such a perfect colour for Autumn/Winter and I really love the deep wine shade of this bag. Have a look at my What's In My Handbag video for a closer look at the detailing.

A Much Needed Break in The New Forest

Every now and then you just need a little break, something to take you out of the everyday to help you truly switch off and relax. I recently attended the Carey's Manor House in the New Forest and it helped me do just that. We checked in on the Friday evening to be greeted by a lovely bottle of champagne and ginormous bed. I don't know what it is with hotel rooms especially those with huge beds, but all I ever want to do is watch TV and order room service. 

However this evening we had plans for dinner at the Cambium, which is the fine dining restaurant within the hotel. It serves the most delicious menu and more importantly and insane pistachio creme brule. The hotel is actually huge, with a few restaurants and bar areas and also a huge spa and pool area. After a relaxing dinner and evening in the hotel I was booked into the SenSpa for a 90 minute massage and facial. To say I had been looking forward to this all week would be an understatement. I had the SenHarmony full body massage and facial and it was so amazing the be able to zone out for a full 90 minutes. The massage used a mixture of SenSpa products with my favourite being the the Signature Scent Essential Oil as it contains a blend of 8 essential oils that leave you feeling like you could float home.

The facial involved Manuka honey, which I hadn't realised contained so many amazing properties as a treatment. I contains natural acids which eat away at any dead skin cells and then also antibacterial properties to prevent spots. 

Shortly after my massage we were booked into the Zen garden for a quick lunch before heading back on the road.

If you're looking for a weekend away and love The New Forest then I'd recommend checking out Carey's Manor Hotel. They have amazing on site facilities and it's located right in the heart of the forest where the drive there is a beautiful canopy of Autumn leaves in red, orange and yellow.

Jo Malone London Regent Street Boutique

Jo Malone London Regent Street  Boutique

Jo Malone London Regent Street Store

Last week Jo Malone opened it's doors to their new global flagship boutique on the iconic Regent Street and let's just say it really is something to behold. As with all of their boutiques the store is absolutely stunning from top to bottom with an array of their beautiful bath and body products along with their new Christmas products, which by the way are to die for. The store also offers a few extra surprises, which makes your shopping and gift giving experience even more special.

The first Regent Street store exclusive is their Archive Collection which consists of 9 totally new scents only sold in the Regent Street Boutique and nowhere else in the world. Being someone who knows almost all of the Jo Malone original scents this is something that excites me so much. The new scents are amazing and so unique with blends like White Lilac & Rhubard, Elderflower & Gooseberry and my personal favourite, Peony & Moss. If you know someone who's a bit fan of Jo Malone then one of these would be such a perfect Christmas gift (hint, hint boyfriend). 

Along with the new fragrances there is also the Boutique's workshop located at the back of the store which offers engraving on any bottle or candle and a calligrapher and illustrator to personalise any box. The images drawn by the illustrator are absolutely stunning with iconic images of London that are so fitting for such a truly British the brand and make for such a personal gift. Another personal touch is the introduction of coloured metallic bottle caps, which add the most stunning touch to any bottle. I love the rose gold cap purely because I think it would look so contrasting in a collection with all silver caps. 

Jo Malone Regent Street Boutique can be found at 101 Regent Street, London.

Barry M Gelly Hi Shine Autumn Releases

Barry M Gelly Hi Shine

Barry M Gelly Hi Shine

Black Cherry - Black Pistachio - Black Grape - Black Current  

When it comes to nail polish there's no one in the drug store that offers such an amazing range as Barry M. If like me you tend to play it safe with your nail colours then you'll love their Autumn/Winter release 'Midnight Gelly Collection' they're a real 'off black' dark shades with hints of blue, green, red and grape. The new shades have been added to the highly successful Gelly Hi-Shine range, which if I'm honest is my favourite from Barry M. As gel like polishes go I think they're pretty spot on, super shiny and long lasting whilst also being very affordable. 

My personal two favourites from the range are Black Cherry as it's a really lovely deep red shade and Black Pistachio as I don't own any other shade like this in my collection. 

All new shades are available now at £3.99 each.
