Christmas Gifting 2019 with Laura Ashley

- Sponsored Content -There are very few brands out there in which I can hand on heart state that they do the festive period of gifting all that well. Laura Ashley is one of the few companies in which not only have a gift for everyone in your circle (yourself included) but each item is beautifully presented; so much so that you might want to make the most of the opportunity and stock up on gifts for the rest of the coming year. Let me give you an overview of my favourite Laura Ashley Christmas gifts for all budgets, available at Laura Ashley and Boots.

If you have the monumental task of gifting someone who has it all and/or that person you don't really know all that well, may I suggest a Laura Ashley Hand Cream or three? The beauty of such product is that just about everyone uses it and really can you ever have too many? For those that believe variety is the spice of life, then may I recommend Laura Ashley Luxury Hand Cream Gift Set (£12.50)? Three well sized tubes of rich and nourishing hand cream, each with a delicate scent that is sure to please even the most discerning noses. For those with a serious hand cream habit or perhaps super dry hands, a great gift idea would be the Laura Ashley Hertiage Bloom Hand and Nail Cream (£6).

For that one person who needs a gentle nudge to slow down and treat themselves, then may I suggest the Laura Ashley Luxury Hand Care Collection (£10). Inside the beautiful pink, keepsake tin is an array of hand and nail essentials to encourage said person to slow down and indulge in a little self care. I can't think of a better way to spend a slow Sunday.

Bridging the gap between stocking stuffers and affordable yet luxury small gifts (both of which are ideally sized for frequent travellers) are two dinky, Laura Ashley gift sets. As a sucker for a decorative tin, the Laura Ashley Mini Indulgence Kit (£8.50): four perfectly formed bath and body treats, to pamper head to toe. There's also the wonderful and just a beautiful Laura Ashley Body Care Trio Timeless Treasures Gift Set (£10.00). This super cute kit not only contains three travel-friendly sized treats but is so well presented, you'd be forgiven for skipping wrapping it!

The festive period is for going all out and truly spoiling one and other, with the following two Laura Ashley gift sets you can have Christmas all wrapped up without the hefty price tag but with spades of style to boot. Neatly presented within a pretty floral print cosmetic bag is the Laura Ashley Bathing in Bloom Gift Set (£20), complete with three divinely scented shower essentials. If indulgence is your central aim, then you need to check out the Laura Ashley Relax and Renew Gift Set (£16). Once again this collection is prettily presented but beyond this, it contains all you need and more to turn your bathroom into a mini spa.

Speaking of baths, is there anything quite like coming home to a warm tub full of frothy bubbles? I don't think so. For an utterly decadent gift that will warm the heart in more ways than one, you really can't go too wrong with a bottle of Laura Ashley Heritage Bloom Luxury Foam Bath (£10) just be sure to grab yourself a bottle too!


Forget a White Christmas, this year we want a Laura Ashley Christmas.
You can find all of the above gifts and much more at Boots and Laura Ashley.

DW Home Candles Review

No seriously I do: Christmas, Halloween, Birthday's or just a rainy Saturday afternoon you can all but bet I have the perfect scented candle ready to add a little ambience to any room. Some may say it is a hobby, others most likely will agree that I have relinquished control of my spending capabilities and allowed fragrant chaos to rule the roost. To that I have one question; what are you burning tonight?

DW Home Candles Review

For a few years, I have casually admired DW Home Candles and made more than a few notes to pick up a few once the opportunity raised itself. As it goes, in terms of physical stockists they are very much scant here in the UK with the most reliable being TK Max (both online and instore), rather disappointingly for myself and those that reside in Glasgow, the offerings of DW Home Candles is pretty much non-existent. Through curiosity - and of course the slight fear of missing out - I took matters into my own hands and did a quick Google search, it was here that I discovered that one of my favourite beauty retailers Notino had a fairly bountiful array of DW Home Candle fragrances. So I did what any normal person would do in such circumstances and ordered a few scents to try out - all in the name of research of course...

DW Home Candles Review

Now quickly cast your eyes back to the opening sentence of this post in which I proudly declared that I have a fragranced candle for every occasion. Well today is November the 5th, Guy Fawkes Night here in the UK and although I'm not a massive fan of the rouge fireworks that more often than not scatter into my garden and scare the bejesus out of our resident wildlife, I did want to mark the occasion none the less. Enter DW Home Candles Burnt Toffee scent, a true to life, sticky yet vanilla scented concoction with slightly smoky tones that instantly takes me back to a childhood of magic gloves, sparklers and of course toffee apples.

As you can probably see from the images I have accumulated three DW Home Candles in total (one was a free gift with my order) and so far I do have to say I am fairly impressed. I like that that price point is fairly reasonable - typically less than say Yankee Candle - and that the scent choices are both refined in style and powerful in throw. In my mind DW Home Candles bridge the gap between luxury brands (think Space.NK) and those found on the highstreet. I'm not entirely sure as to why DW Home Candles haven't fully found themselves at home here in the UK as of yet but perhaps time will tell, until then you can find a wide selection via Notino.

L'Occitane x Unicef Not Just A Gift 2019 Review

Is it too early to whisper the word "Christmas", probably but before you are inundated with countless gift guides, I want to quickly draw your attention towards a great gift with a difference; L'Occitane x Unicef - a trio of wonderful bath and body treats in which £10 of each sale goes directly to Unicef. Now who you happen to bestow said suggestion upon is entirely up to you, maybe it is a loved one or maybe that person is yourself, zero judgement from me.

L'Occitane are renowned for their charitable endeavours and this recent collaboration is probably one of their mightiest to date, with no less than £10 from each £29 purchase going straight to Unicef to provide Vitamin A supplements to prevent childhood blindness. It is a great cause and with the festive season right around the corner it is also a great opportunity to grab a gift or two whilst helping others in need - a win/win situation if ever there was one.

L'Occitane x Unicef Not Just A Gift 2019 Review

In my mind, the L'Occitane x Unicef Gift Sets are the perfect gift for those in your life that perhaps travel a lot (the products are perfectly sized for such occasions) and/or those who enjoy the little luxuries in life. On a more personal note, this is also the perfect opportunity to try out a L'Occitane range that you've perhaps had your eye on for a while with next to no commitment (nor guilt).

L'Occitane x Unicef Not Just A Gift 2019 Review
L'Occitane x Unicef Not Just A Gift 2019 Review

As mentioned, there are three L'Occitane Gift Sets to chose from:

L'Occitane Botanicals Scents Collection £29 (worth £32) - link.
A beautiful green box full of botanical treats centred around two cult L'Occitane fragrances: Verbena and Herbae for a lush and aromatic sensory experience. Neatly presented such box is: 70ml Verbena Shower Gel, 75g Verbena Soap, 50ml Herbae par L’Occitane Body Milk, 30ml Herbae par L’Occitane Hand Cream and 5ml Herbae par L’Occitane Eau de Parfum. This is perhaps the most adventurous option out of the trio and one I would recommend to those that enjoy fresher and more uplifting fragrances.

Soft, powdery and gently floral is how I would sum up the two fragrances that help to make up the L'Occitane Delicate Petals Collection. A beautiful combination of L'Occitane Terre de Lumiere and L'Occitaine Neroli & Orchidee products are nestled into the super pretty, pink hat box. The contents are as follows: 5ml Terre de Lumière L’Eau Eau de Toilette, 75g Terre de Lumière L’Eau Perfumed Soap, 50ml Terre de Lumière Shower Gel, 50ml Néroli & Orchidée Body Milk  and 30ml Néroli & Orchidée Hand Cream.

L'Occitane Cocooing Comforts Collection £29 (worth £32) - link.
I've yet to met a person who has tried the now iconic L'Occitane Almond collection and not all but instantly became a fan. As you may have guessed, the striking blue box contains an assortment of Almond scented products, alongside a few key Shea Butter treats too, If you are partial to dry skin this is the one for you: 75ml Almond Shower Oil, 30ml Shea Butter Hand Cream, 12ml Shea Butter Ultra Rich Lip Balm, 20ml Almond Milk Concentrate and 50g Almond Delicious Soap.

As mentioned above all of the L'Occitane x Unicef gift sets do costs £29 each but £10 of each sale does go directly to Unicef to help prevent childhood blindness, making this so much more than a beautiful gift under the tree.

Limited Edition Liz Earle Bergamot & Basil Collection

Liz Earle skincare - particularly the ever iconic Cleanse & Polish - has had pride of place in my bathroom since I began beauty blogging 8 years ago. It is one of those few brands that I fully trust and tend to splurge on frequently, especially should the product be and exciting which leads me to the new and very much limited edition Liz Earle Bergamot & Basil Collection; a range of 4 products that should you act now, will not only come in a beautiful gift box but also at a heavily discounted price.

Limited Edition Liz Earle Bergamot & Basil Collection
Limited Edition Liz Earle Bergamot & Basil Collection

The best way to describe the limited edition Liz Earle Bergamot & Basil fragrance is zesty and uplifting. It is a fresh combination of Egyptian Basil and Italian Bergamot which fuse together to create an invigorating blend that is perfect for perking up even the darkest of winter nights and days - or you of course could squirrel this particular launch away for next Summer should you wish. I can't quite make up my mind if it is the power of suggestion at play, thanks to the cute illustrations on the packaging but at times, the limited edition Liz Earle Bergamot & Basil scent does have a certain "lime" like note which I personally rather enjoy.

Limited Edition Liz Earle Bergamot & Basil Collection

The limited edition Liz Earle Bergamot & Basil Collection contains a few fan favourites all complete with the beautiful new fragrance; the aforementioned skincare staple that is Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish (150ml), as well as Liz Earle Skin Tonic (200ml) are decorated both with the new scent and packaging - both of which I find are great for all skin types and needs. For the body there is the Liz Earle Botanical Body Cream (200ml) and the Liz Earle Hand Repair (50ml), again scented with Bergamot and Basil and presented in freshly adorned packaging.

Limited Edition Liz Earle Bergamot & Basil Collection

Now if you are currently planning ahead and perhaps not adverse to stocking up on Christmas presents a little earlier than most, the good news is that the limited edition Liz Earle Bergamot & Basil Collection is available via QVC and not only features the above products but also: the original Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish (200ml), two Liz Earle Cleansing Cloths and Liz Earle Skin Repair Moisturiser (50ml), all neatly presented in a gift box and for the rather impressive price of just £52.96 (contents worth over £126).

 Drunk Elephant Fridge Trunk 3.0 Holiday Christmas

Are you ready for possibly one of the most exciting Christmas gifts of 2019? If you love skincare (and who doesn't) then the arrival of the Drunk Elephant Trunk 3.0 for the Holiday season 2019 will have you writing your letter to Santa Claus a little earlier than usual.

Drunk Elephant Fridge Trunk 3.0 Holiday Christmas
Drunk Elephant Fridge Trunk 3.0 Holiday Christmas

Now I must warn you that I don't know the exact UK price point nor retailer as of yet but in the U.S it will launch early October online and costs $450, so hopefully that can serve as some sort of indicator. Yes admittedly it is pricey but disregarding the mini fridge, the contents alone tally up to over £500 so even going for a straight dollar to pound exchange rate, you would be saving over £150 which is pretty impressive.

Drunk Elephant Fridge Trunk 3.0 Holiday Christmas

So alongside the cute lilac and neon orange mini fridge, the Drunk Elephant 3.0 trunk contains:

Drunk Elephant Fridge Trunk 3.0 Holiday Christmas

All of the above are indeed full size products which I'm guessing you would expect given the imagined retail cost. As weird as it may sound, the Drunk Elephant Trunk 3.0 is far more impressive in person; the fridge doesn't really translate half as pretty on camera nor does the fact that the gift set pretty much contains a full skin care routine for just about all skin types, right down to a daily SPF. If I was to be hyper critical, it would have been nice to have seen an inclusion of their lip balm (Drunk Elephant Lippe Balm) and maybe the ever elusive Drunk Elephant Sukari Baby Facial in lieu of a face mask but otherwise it is beautiful and very well thought out.

Despite being one of the more pricey beauty gifts heading our way, I do imagine the Drunk Elephant Fridge Trunk 3.0 will sell out pretty quickly.

UPDATE- the Drunk Elephant trunk 3.0 will retail for £370 in the UK and will be available via Cult Beauty and Space.NK - LINK.

I will update this post as soon as I have any additional information, until then you can find all the contents individually via Space.NK - link.

Kringle Candle Daylights Review UK Autumn

I left the house at 6am today and not only was it positively dark outside but it was beyond chilly. If I had the energy to deeply exhale, I'm all but sure my frosty breath would have surrounded the air around me. Sure the arrival of Autumn means extra layers, gloves and walking with trepidation on the now slippery pavements but on the plus side, burning candles all day and night feels far more justified - as does going to bed that little earlier to read a book and generally eating soup. For those looking for something a little different to add both scent and ambience to their home - and without skipping a mortgage payment at that - may I recommend a brand that is seldom spoke about here in the UK? Let me share a few recent Kringle Candle purchases and finds.

Kringle Candle Daylights Review UK Autumn

So you may or may not be aware but Kringle Candle is actually owned (and created) by the son of Yankee Candle which does mean there are some similarities between the brands: familiar packaging, scent themes/families and in general the price point. The main difference is that Yankee Candle is everywhere and of course far more known and yet still lacks smaller in size candle options.

If you are anything like me you bore easily and flit between several candles a week which quickly mounts up and of course depletes your home of storage, you may be looking for something a little less cumbersome than a huge glass jar. Tealights are great and all but have you ever experienced a Kringle Candle Daylight? Compact yet mighty; around twice the size of a regular tealight candles (burning for up to 12 hours), affordable and available in a whole rainbow of colours and fragrances, that deceptively scent an entire room.

Kringle Candle Daylights Review UK Autumn

I realise upon typing this out that noting the Kringle Candle Daylights stack really well, probably doesn't rank all that highly on the average person's checklist but if you are tight on storage space, every little bit helps. That or I really should consider going out more...

Kringle Candle Daylights Review UK Autumn

As the weather has shifted, my Kringle Candle order was positively influenced by the cooler temperatures of Autumn. Here's a quick break down of the scents I purchased this time around:

Apple Cider Donut - sweet yet savoury with a strong note of cinnamon. Very reminiscent of a few Bath and Body Works fragrances (think Leaves et al). Easily my favourite of the bunch.

Oak & Fig - clean, fresh and fruity. Reminds me of Diptyque Figulier. If you enjoy fig bases scents this one is for you.

Comfy Sweater - one for those who gravitate towards "fabric softener" type fragrances, not my personal favourite.

Cozy Cabin - Smoky yet sweet, if you like toasted marshmallow notes, this is the one to stock up on.

Lumberjack - such an odd scent; half floral, half musky. Pleasant enough but peculiar all the same.

Touch of Autumn - A Cinnamon led, spice heavy, warming fragrant. Perfect for this time of the year.

I have of course began narrowing down my Winter/Christmas fragrances but let's give it a few weeks shall we?

Sure the arrival of Autumn means extra layers, gloves and walking with trepidation on the now slippery pavements but on the plus side, burning candles all day and night feels far more justified - as does going to bed that little earlier to read a book and generally eating soup. For those looking for something a little different to add both scent and ambience to their home - and without skipping a mortgage payment at that - may I recommend a brand that is seldom spoke about here in the UK? Let me share a few recent Kringle Candle purchases and finds.

Kringle Candle Daylights Review UK Autumn

So you may or may not be aware but Kringle Candle is actually owned (and created) by the son of Yankee Candle which does mean there are some similarities between the brands: familiar packaging, scent themes/families and in general the price point. The main difference is that Yankee Candle is everywhere and of course far more known and yet still lacks smaller in size candle options.

If you are anything like me you bore easily and flit between several candles a week which quickly mounts up and of course depletes your home of storage, you may be looking for something a little less cumbersome than a huge glass jar. Tealights are great and all but have you ever experienced a Kringle Candle Daylight? Compact yet mighty; around twice the size of a regular tealight candles (burning for up to 12 hours), affordable and available in a whole rainbow of colours and fragrances, that deceptively scent an entire room.

I realise upon typing this out that noting the Kringle Candle Daylights stack really well, probably doesn't rank all that highly on the average person's checklist but if you are tight on storage space, every little bit helps. That or I really should consider going out more...

As the weather has shifted, my Kringle Candle order was positively influenced by the cooler temperatures of Autumn. Here's a quick break down of the scents I purchased this time around:

Apple Cider Donut - sweet yet savoury with a strong note of cinnamon. Very reminiscent of a few Bath and Body Works fragrances (think Leaves et al). Easily my favourite of the bunch.

Oak & Fig - clean, fresh and fruity. Reminds me of Diptyque Figulier. If you enjoy fig bases scents this one is for you.

Comfy Sweater - one for those who gravitate towards "fabric softener" type fragrances, not my personal favourite.

Cozy Cabin - Smoky yet sweet, if you like toasted marshmallow notes, this is the one to stock up on.

Lumberjack - such an odd scent; half floral, half musky. Pleasant enough but peculiar all the same.

Touch of Autumn - A Cinnamon led, spice heavy, warming fragrant. Perfect for this time of the year.

I have of course began narrowing down my Winter/Christmas fragrances but let's give it a few weeks shall we?
