Bobbi Brown Date Night Palette, £24
This handy sized palette fits in your clutch bag for a night out or 'date' night as Bobbi Brown have romantically called it. Normally I find palettes fairly pointless as there only tends to me one product I end up actually using but this palette holds a small but very well chosen selection of totally wearable neutral colours and a gorgeous slightly shimmery lipgloss to refresh your look wherever you are!
Mark Hill Rock Chic Wave Wand, £59.99
This hair tool should be on every girls christmas wish list! I have straighter than straight hair and find it so hard to curl or even wave my hair, I always find the ends of the hair look kinky and after an hour of curling away I get bad arm ache so the whole process is less than satisfying! This Mark Hill Wave Wand is different, its incredibly easy to use and creates beautiful and natural waves so quickly. Also, how cool is the bright pink zebra print barrel?!
Estee Lauder Modern Muse, £60
This is my scent of the season! Its fresh, feminine, sweet and sexy and looks beautiful on my dressing table (I love the bow detailing). This alluring perfume contrasts a mix of sparkling florals, and sleek, sensual woods and any girl would be overjoyed with this as a gift for Christmas and its only just be launched!
Sienna X Q10 Bronzing Mousse, £24.95
It might be freezing cold outside but don't let the cold weather get you down and invest in a bottle of Sienna X Q10 Bronzing Mousse its AMAZING! I love how quickly it is to tan the whole body, with no mess or streaks and doesn't smell bad either! With all those Christmas parties coming up its the ideal time to find a tan you can rely on.
Chanel CC Cream, £41
This innovative creation is a must have it will be without a doubt the best complexion investment you make. Chanel’s CC Cream is a fusion of skincare and makeup and combines five actions in one simple step. It soothes, moisturises, protects (SPF 30), prevents and evens out imperfections. I’ve been using this the last few weeks and I can see a huge difference to the moisture of my skin, I’m amazed with its coverage and it’s so easy to apply.
Eos Limited Edition Christmas 3 pack, £
I'm absolutely addicted to Eos lip balms! Ever since I bought my first strawberry flavoured lip balm in New York a few months ago I just can't get enough of them, they've kept my pout well and truly moisturised and nourished! This limited edition 3 pack makes the an amazing stocking filler and it means it will last you right up until next Christmas!

This week is ALL about the bobble beanie, I can't stop wearing mine since I bought it last week from Topshop last week buy yours here. It's so warm and cosy and disguises a bad hair day perfectly!
I went to Bluewater on Friday and bought these amazing faux leather shorts and two tone grey/ burgundy jumper both from Zara to match with my burgundy tassel pumps from Topshop. Loving high street fashion this Autumn/ Winter! I'm on the look out for party wear now as my Birthday party and business launch party is coming up soon, so watch this space! If you can recommend anything let me know!

If I had to choose one of my favourite things about Christmas it has to be my love for candles! I burn candles all year round but there's something about Christmas that makes me truly cherish the beautiful atmosphere, seductive scent and homely feel they give off. Here's a list of my favourite candles this festive season, not only a lovely treat for yourself but they all make perfect Christmas gifts too!
Jo Malone -Oud & Bergamot-
Jo Malone has just launched their Christmas collection and this Oud & Bergamot home candle has to be my favourite, it smells of all things Christmas! It fills the room with a rich, rare and deeply luxurious scent that you can't help but fall in love with. I highly recommend this as a Christmas gift too as the packing is so beautiful it will guarantee smiles and happiness this festive season!
Diptyque -Christmas Collection
Every year Diptyque launch a stunning set of Christmas candles to celebrate the most enchanting time of the year and this years special collection of candles sees the start of a new chapter, where fantasy takes hold of the Diptyque emblem. I love the bright colours of the precious glass holding the scented wax in the prettiest way, shining a warming and alluring light for all to enjoy! This collection symbolises renewal, the radiance of life and the advent of the New Year and of course the Festival of light celebrated all over the world. The Three scented candles will enhance cosy christmas evenings and are made to be shared and embraced.
This deep and sensual candle is perfect for the cold winter months ahead of us and makes the most perfect Christmas gift (such beautiful packaging as usual by Penhaligon's). The hot spices, green eucalyptus, Turkish rose and jasmine combined with incense and woods create a heady and addictively seductive scent. Elixir is my favourite fragrance of the season I've not experienced anything quite like it and cannot recommend it both the fragrance and candles enough.
This Works -Deep Sleep Heavenly Candle
This long-burning candle is an ideal bedroom burner, with lavender and chamomile it really helps you to relax, unwind and sleep soundly. With lack of sleep being a growing issue in our modern world and having to balance a manic work and social life the time we do have to zone out and properly relax is so important, so burning this candle will make the world of difference.
This absolutely stunning candle sits in the most beautiful ceramic pot, this is most definitely a home investment as it acts as almost piece of furniture an addition to your home aswell as filling the room with addictive notes of Thyme, Lavender, Cedarwood, Tolu Balsam and incense. Once the candle burns out you still have a ceramic pot to cherish.
Molton Brown -Frankincense & Allspice Candle
If you could capture christmas in a pot this would be it! This festive scented candle has top notes of allspice, caraway and ginger, a heart of frankincense guaiac wood and cyproil with a base of santal amyris, patchouli and vetiver. I love the fact its red stained glass too its like a Christmas decoration!
Mitchell and Peach -Flora No.1
This precious scented candle conjures the beauty and romance of the english countryside and if you're anything like me and you appreciate delicate floral feminine scents then you will adore the scent. With an elegant blend of rose, sweet violet and English Lavender this candle also contains floral fragrant oils from the Mitchells' fifth generation farm in Kent.

With winter just around the corner its time we pay special attention to our precious complexions! Being so exposed to the gruesome weather and being at the forefront to all elements its essential we inject some serious moisture into our skin. My favourite skin saviours photographed below will ensure you're fully protected, cleansed and moisturised so you can concentrate on keeping warm without flakey dull complexions to bring us down!
- Clinique 'Take The Day Off' Cleansing Milk - Use this after a long day to dissolve makeup, leaving skin SUPER soft, comfortable free of residue and fully cleansed ready for a good nights sleep.
- Clarins 'Gentle Eye Makeup Remover' - If you don't use eye make remover and just a cleansing wipe to remove your mascara then you need to start, it makes a HUGE difference to the delicate skin around your precious eyes and its something that can reduce lines and wrinkles for later in life! This non-oily remover gently takes away all traces of eye makeup in one sweep and leaves eyes fresh and cleansed.
- Aesop 'Parsley Seed Facial Cleansing Oil' - I use this twice a week as part of my skincare regime as it's recharges my skin with the nutrients it needs to look as glowing as possible. I don't like using oil based cleansers on a daily basis as it leaves a slight oily residue, so the perfect sunday night pamper cleanser or night time moisture surge.
- Clinique 'Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion'- This new improved formula is for very dry to dry skin and helps strengthen skins own moisture barrier, so more moisture stays in leaving skin soft and springy. I use this morning and evening after cleansing and my skin has never felt so soft.
Enjoy these products and have happy, healthy and well moisturised skin!

There's a new love in my life and its my Marc Jacobs make-up bag, it's an ideal A/W investment and the perfect place to store your beloved beauty treats. I love the deep purple animal print it couldn't be more on-trend right now and its the perfect size to fit your essential items, sometimes I think the bigger the makeup bag the more you tend to carry around with you so this medium sized makeup bag forces you to think about what you actually need in your makeup bag. Watch this space for my A/W Beauty Edit, it's all about replenishing your makeup kit for the colder climate we're experiencing and the festive season nearly upon us!
