Blogging To Christmas Part I

Part 1….Christmas Gifts

There are always things that you are guaranteed to either get as a gift or give as a gift at Christmas and unless you have said that you want these specific items, you then have to put on a ‘wow, thank you for this gift, I will never use it, but thanks!’ smile, although some people don’t open their gifts in front of you BUT I bet your bottom dollar that they will still make that “face” when they open it at home! Now I am not saying I am the best gift giver there is, blimey I have already brought things for people that I am hoping they will like, but I may have got it wrong and yes, they are some of the above!

This year, I am trying to do something a bit different, I am hoping (I say hoping as I may run out of time) to give a “open me now” gift to some of my friends, so that the Christmas joy can start a little early!

Something I always used to enjoy doing when I was younger was writing a Christmas list, it was endless, there was always something that I saw in the Argos catalogue that I wanted and as I grew up there was DVDs and CDs that I wanted, so I never struggled to find anything to ask for. The other day my parents asked me for a list, a list at the age of 26! I really struggled and there ended up being 10 things on there, just 10! 15 years ago I know I wouldn’t have struggled at all, oh how times change!

So, I hear you ask what have I put on my list this year……

The Merry Christmas Gift Box From Lush, it includes 5 products, they are all either bath bombs or bubble bars – so they will keep me going for a few months

Kate Spade small square stud earrings in pink. On Nordstrom at the moment they have 25% and they are sooo pretty!

Nice make up brushes, I currently have 2 make up brushes a kabuki brush and a bronzer brush that I have had for 18 months, but to go with that and to cross something off my list I have asked for a 90minute make up lesson with MAC and a MAC gift voucher.

The one person I really struggle to buy for is my boyfriend. He is so particular with his clothes and things he wants it’s really hard to make sure you have got the right things! Although this year, I have been thinking about it for a while and I am hoping that I have got him something’s that he will really like and something’s I will really like on him hahaha!

Now if you are stuck on what to get people and would like to get some DIY ideas, why not follow my Present Idea’s board on Pinterest? Here is a link to the page http://uk.pinterest.com/princessepink/present-idea-s

Well I am going to sign off now and start looking at what I have left to buy as I am going Christmas shopping with my mum tomorrow and I am hoping to cross a few more things off the list!

Have a lovely evening xxx

A Hidden Gem

So about a year ago I saw on Instagram a candle in the states called Clarity Candle, it’s basically a candle with a jewel in it which can be anything from $10 to $5000. When I was in the states I was too late to order one which I was gutted about, but figured I could do it next time I am out there.

I went round to my bestie’s house a few months ago and she said to me she has been sent some candles review on her vlog and blog and did I want to take a look at them? So like excited kids we opened up the box and they were just like Clarity Candle, but called Imperial Candle and a completely UK based company. The description informs that the candle is 100% Natural Soy Wax, made and hand poured in the UK. There is also 2 Wicks to prevent tunneling and the thing that impressed me the most was the burn time of 120-150 hours!

The candles were stunning and the smell was amazing I just knew I had to order one! So come payday, I went online and placed my order, choosing the fragrance was the hardest thing, the ones that caught my eye were:

Strawberry Chocolate
Tropical Coconut
Fresh Fruit Slice

I really liked the pictures they have on the website of the candle and you can select a ring size or put suprise me. I hinted a few times to my brother and my mum about these before Christmas and I was really pleased to open my gift on Christmas Day from my brother and it was ‘Tropical Coconut’!

It burns like the best candle I have ever had and the smell is devine, although I am really impatient so waiting until you see that gold wrapper just took forever! So when I saw the gold peeking out at me I took my tweezers and started to dig it out! I was really pleased when I unwrapped the foil and was greeted by a stunning sparkly heart shaped necklace! At first I thought it was a bit too shiny, but as soon as I put it on I loved it! It even came with a little tag advising how much it is worth, the tag advised that my necklace is worth £25!
