Not on the High Street Christmas

It's time to start thinking about Christmas, and I was lucky enough to go to Not on the High Street's Christmas event a few months ago. I love Not on the High Street - I want to give presents that are a bit unusual, a bit different, can be personalised, and that's exactly what NOTHS gives you. A Christmas less ordinary indeed...
 
 
Top finds include these yummy alcoholic sweets - perfect for a child at heart yet over the legal drinking age! By Smith & Sinclair, I would love to receive these cocktail pastilles. Just £16.95, check them out here.
 
 
 
I also fell in love with the waterless dinosaur 'air plants' - perfect for someone like me who struggles to keep normal plants alive!
 
 
You just need to spritz it with water every now and then - super low maintenance! Plus looks kinda cool as a dinosaur, no?! There are lots of different dinosaurs to choose from - see here!
 
There are so many present ideas from Not on the High Street that I could have gone on and on but these just whet your appetite - go take a look at their website to get inspired.

NEW Metallic Balmi

Well doesn't this look beautiful?!
 
 
This is lip balm season, and Balmi is so convenient as well as moisturising it's a great balm to have with you at all times. This one also looks so good!
 
 
 
This is cherry flavoured. Also within their new metallic range are a roseberry and a blackcurrant balm, so pick which you like best. They are only £4.99 and one lasts you aaaages! It also contains SPF 15 (still very important even at this time of year).
 
Available now at Boots, Superdrug and Urban Outfitters - give Balmi a go!

My Little Creative Box

A little delayed on showing you this but here is the latest My Little Box, all about creativity.
 
 
 
 
 
As always, a really exciting box from My Little Box. A very handy tote bag - collect moments not things - so true! Plus so 'tech jewellery' to jazz up your headphones. This is what I really love about My Little Box, you get things you've never heard of before or even thought of!
 
 
 
Beauty-wise, there is a lovely night cream from their own label, My Little Beauty called Crème de Minuit, plus a day cream from Talika - I've heard of this brand but have never tried anything from them before. Plus a gorgeous smelling oil from Ainy that can be used on skin, hair, nails...everywhere. Really great for this time of year when everything feels dry!
 
Already looking forward to the next box...

I Love...New Launches!

I really do love new launches...but here are the new launches from I Love...!
 
Does this brand just know what I need right now?! I up the number of baths I have this time of year as it gets darker and colder, plus I need hand sanitiser from all the germs that are going around at the moment!
 
 
The Pink Marshmallow bubble bath in particular is gorgeous. Lots of bubbles, sweet but not overly sweet, just perfect. I've tried the Coconut & Cream before so I know I love that one, but still to test out Peachy Passionfruit - something tells me it's going to be good though!
 
The new launches are I love...Saved By the Gel (see what they did there?!). I have the Strawberries and Cream and Coconut and Cream ones, but there are also Raspberry and Blackberry and Mango and Papaya. Plus they're only £1.25.
 
 
Most anti-bacs smell awful of pure alcohol, so these are great. A hint of their scent is all that's needed, otherwise it would be too overpowering. They also have jojoba esters which means they don't dry out your skin. Perfect for handbags, I carry one around with me to quickly cleanse after public transport!
 
Check them out on their website and at Superdrug.

bareMinerals Precious Gems Pop of Passion

It's November so time to start thinking about Christmas presents right?! And this amazing giftset from bareMinerals would be great for anyone who loves a bit of lippy.
 
 
Three lovely tinted lip oil-balms are inside.
 
 
 
 
From top to bottom here we have Plumberry Pop, Nude Passion and Pink Passion. You can see there are more hints of colour rather than anything more pigmented, but really moisturising and nourishing, hence why they call them oil-balms.
 
bareMinerals have plenty of special Christmas sets on offer this year. This one is £25 with a value of £48. See more here.
