CHRISTMAS: Stocking Fillers + Fitbit Giveaway
In my house, stocking fillers are the main event when it comes to christmas presents, we do things a bit backwards now that were all grown up! There are no more stockings, just lots of small gifts under the tree, which my mum calls stocking fillers. This year, she bought me some surprises and tasked me with picking out the other half for myself. So while I was out hunting, I was also collecting some other bits and pieces that I thought would work perfectly in my stocking fillers guide!
For the Beauty Lovers: There are so many lovely kits and sets that come out around Christmas time that it was just too hard to pick! I am mainly an eyes person when it comes to make up so both these eye kits are great! Soap & Glory Eyes Box just £18 but has four full sized products inside! Benefit have something similar with their sexy eyes on the run set which is more travel sized with mini versions of they're real! push-up liner, brown and black mascaras and remover - all you need to throw in your handbag. Lastly in the eye area is this The Glo and Ray Skybreaker Eyeliner kit, £28, from Beauty Mart which contains six different colours waterproof eyeliner pencils and a sharpener to keep the liners precision perfect! Lastly, I have some makeup bits from The Body Shop, I really fell in love with the packaging on this stuff!
For lips, I have a customizable limited edition EOS set which has three of the cute lip blams in Sweet Mint, Pomegranate Raspberry and Vanilla Bean, all enriched with conditioning oils, shea butter and Vitamin E. They smell incredible. A set of jeweled art stickers comes included inside - annnd this cute little Kissmas Cracker from Soap & Glory with a lip gloss inside - super cute and adorably stocking-sized.
Lastly, I have this Body Therapy set from Dermalogica designed to help you achieve healthy skin from head to toe. Inside, you get a body was, hydrating cream and a small body scrub.
This year I realised how much everyone loves candles! We have never used them in my house because I have a bit of an issue with not believing that I put them out, although Andrew's mum always has them burning and it makes everything better, they are super pretty and fill the whole house with a warm, cosy scent.
I have four minis from Yankee here which I will definitely be taking around the Andrews house for his mum. They are the small jars which are £8.99 and they are just so cute, I love their christmassy colours and little lids! They are new Christmas fragrances for 2015 and are available in all of Yankee Candle's six classic candle forms. Berry Trifle which obviously smells like fresh berries with a hint of vanilla too, Bundle up which is one of those clean, citrusy scents, Cosy by the fire which is the majorly christmassy one with ginger, orange and clove and Winter Glow is meant to smell like a crisp winters day. My favourite for this time of year, obviously is Cosy by The Fire, but I seriously love them all!
I mentioned these earler this year but they are great gifts! I have already given one to Georgia and one to Juanita! They are the perfect gifts for the coffee drinkers in my life! £7.95 in Costa stores.
and for the tea drinkers? I was surprised at how lovely the gifts on the twinings website were! This cute golden bauble is filled with teabags and the green tin is filled with loose leaf mint tea! I had convinced Andrew that we need to order from Twinings for his family secret santa! You just cant go wrong with tea!
and for the chocolate lovers like me, I have a new obsession. Charbonnel et Walker truffles. Every Christmas I see people instgram photos of these boxes and every time, I tell Andrew I want to try some, he always forgets and so do I and then it never happens! Well this year is different, I spotted the stand when I was in Harrods and we got two to try and since then I have been on the hunt for more, they were delisicou! I found the cute little heart box in John Lewis and the huge round box in their store on old bond street! Next on the list are the Pink Champange ones and some more Banana and Caramel ones mmmm
And lastly, for getting healthy: Both Andrew and I have had a fitbit for quite a while now and they really are great! They are accurate and easy to use to track steps, distance and calories burned which is going to be perfect for anyone trying to be healthy, especially in January!
Since we got Molly and moved out to the middle of the forest, my dad is obcessed with counting the steps and distance of his walks so this is a perfect Christmas gift for him. It just syncs up with your phone and you can access all of your stats on the go plus it keeps track from day to day so you can see your progress. It also has a battery life of 7-10 days which is incredible for technology these days and comes in four different colours.
