Christmas Gift Guide & Giveaway

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas... It's almost 2 weeks until Christmas (and 12 days until I'm back in the UK!!) so of course I had to get involved with all of the Christmas gift guides floating around the blogsphere. I feel like I've found some good'uns this year, although, I must confess that this is mainly a "for her" post, but there are certainly somethings on here that are suitable for anyone... scroll down for an exciting giveaway, too!




Beauty
Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks are my favourite thing right now and I'd highly recommend either the Electric Poppy shade, or if you want to spend a little more, the Lipstick Charms look amazing and feature some of the best selling shades in mini form.

Don't know what to get me? Buy me a Sephora gift card this year - I LOVE being able to just pop into Sephora here, we really do need it in the UK!

Everytime I see someone with a highlighter palette it makes me want to run out and buy one! I ended up doing so over Black Friday as this was on offer at Sephora... it's so beautiful that I've decided to give it away! But even if you don't win it, it's certainly going to be a week received present for any make up junkies you may know!

Cruelty free, gorgeous colours and amazing quality? Spectrum is my go to, now. I've got a couple of their brushes and I adore them, plus their sets aren't overly expensive.

Oh Rihanna, you do things to me. At the top of my wishlist is definitely the new STUNNA lip paint, but I would also highly recommend the Amber Matchstix as it's the best cream contour I've ever used! 

Speaking of celebrity launches, the latest release from Kim Kardashian West looks lovely and having watched a few reviews, I definitely am tempted to get hold of the Bronze or Copper ones for myself and I think they'd make a fabulous gift for any beauty obsessed people you may know!

Fashion
Anything from Bomb Petite!

I got an exciting email in my inbox from the lovely team at bombpetite, a site that celebrates us petite ladies and I must confess their clothing looks fab! If you know someone who struggles to find clothes that fit properly, then it would be a lovely present to receive something from them. (I would love it, anyway!). I also love their "blog" style posts, especially their guide for finding a "super fit" and I should be featured on their Socials soon, so keep an eye out on their Instagram here for my beautiful face!

I love getting slippers for Christmas, and whilst I'm not in need of a new pair this year, these one from M&S look super cute (and from past experience, similar styles have been the comfiest I've ever owned!)

Kate Spade is no doubt one of my favourite handbag designers and this purse is so pretty - it would make a perfect gift for a wife, girlfriend or any other loved one!

I have to confess these are on my gift guide as this is what I've asked for - due to being in Canada over the snowy season, I decided to invest in some good, waterproof boots. Timberlands are both stylish and practical and I opted for them as I knew I would continue to wear them once I'm back in the UK!

An affordable alternative to the Kate Spade purse, but this is also super cute. Accessorize have some lovely pieces in this year, so if this doesn't take your fancy, I'd highly recommend having a peruse!

This beautiful dressing gown was featured on Nigella's cookery show recently and having seen in the flesh, I'd definitely say it's worth the money... simply gorgeous!

Do good by raising money and end up with a lovely jumper to gift someone (or keep for yourself!) - what more could you want?

I found out about Iona from a mutual friend that studies at Exeter with her and as soon as I saw her earrings, I knew that I wanted some for myself. They range between £3-£5 and are such a simple (but very chic) concept, especially as pom poms and big earrings are so "in" this year. Such a great idea for secret santa, small gifts for friends and stocking fillers. To order, simply choose your size and colour then DM her on Insta. She can post anywhere in the UK and I really do think they're such a fabulous idea!

I own a pair of these from a couple of years back and I adore them. You can never go wrong with socks for Christmas and as I'm going to be stocking up on fluffy, warm socks for the impending Canadian winter, these are certainly at the top of my list!

Lifestyle
Netflix, the home of my procrastination - supply others with the same opportunity by getting them a Gift Card for the subscription service!

These are also on my own wish list, and having done some research, these seem to be the best for the price!

and now for all of the books...
For almost anyone in the family that likes random facts!
For fans of Jane the Virgin!
Perfect for students, families and anyone who's a fan of Jamie Oliver!
Last year's GBBO winner has written a book (surprise, surprise!), but this one looks lovely!
Nigella's a classic and I couldn't feature her gown without featuring her cook book!


Have a peruse and let me know if you think there's something crucial I've missed or if you've managed to pick up something ultra special and think everyone would appreciate knowing about it, too! A massive thank you once again for all of your continued support over the past 4 years - I can't believe I've had this blog for so long! To celebrate my 4th anniversary, 1000 followers on Insta, over 1000 on Twitter and nearly 200 on Facebook - as well as the fact it's nearly Christmas - I thought it would only be fitting if I were to giveaway one of these gifts. 


To be in with a chance of winning the Anastasia Beverly Hills Sun Dipped Glow Kit, head to one of my social media accounts! It's a giveaway for anyone living in the UK, Canada or the US and winner will be chosen at random on the 30th December (3 weeks today!). Good luck and thank you again!
