When I was planning out my Blogmas posts a couple of months ago, I decided a Christmas scent post would be wonderful. But I forgot how expensive candles and reed diffusers are! Last year I picked up some bargain candles from Tesco to burn over Christmas, and for the rest of the year I pretty much exclusively burn IKEA candles. Instead of dropping a bomb on candles I may or may not use, I picked up the Yankee Candle 8 Votive Christmas Scents Gift Set to test out a whole host of scents.
I don’t feel like I’ve spoken a lot about beauty recently, and that’s where my blogging roots lie. I personally am not in a place where I want to spend a small fortune on new beauty products and have been getting through some of my old products. But with Christmas coming up, I can always ask for someone to gift me some beauty sets, so I’ve created this Christmas Beauty Gift wish list (one of only two wish lists this blogmas series) to share what I think is worth picking up this season.
When I treated myself to a couple of Glossier items recently, I just had to pick up the Glossier Boy Brow in the shade Blond. I’ve heard amazing things and I’ve been looking for a cheaper and cruelty-free alternative to the Benefit Gimme Brow after the Essence Make Me Brow didn’t quite hit the mark.
I’m a big lover of face masks – in fact, I put together a whole series about my face mask stash. There are currently 4 that don’t leave my bathroom because I use them so much! Today I’m sharing those masks, linking you to my full reviews on them (in case you’re interested) and letting you know why I love them so darn much!
I signed up for Influenster quite some time ago, and then promptly forgot about said sign-up. It wasn’t until Katie received the Bourjois VoxBox after an email when we were in France together that I actually remembered that I had an account. Well here we are a couple of months later and a received a very exciting parcel that I’ve been testing for the past week – the Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir Mascara*.
