This Week I’ve Been…


My oh my this has been a rather festive week hasn’t it! Just like the big day itself, after all the planning, buying, prepping and photo taking that goes into the Christmas Gift Guides, I blink and it’s all done! Really hope you enjoyed this years addition, I love putting everything together and sharing some fab finds with you for Christmas gifts. There are just too many beautiful things available these days! With officially three working weeks left till the big day, thats three more weekends where I need to run around town picking up the final bits and pieces. Is it too early to put up the tree yet?!

This Week I’ve Been…

Pretending I can spend my life on Old Bond Street – oh don’t mind me spending a causal Saturday popping into Tiffanys, Gucci, YSL and Burberry. Just picking up the essentials! #IWish There is nothing like taking a stroll along Old Bond Street in Central London to make you want to rob a bank and go to town. Not that I would. Obis ;)

Buying more things for beautiful gift sets – so Cult Beauty had a pretty insanely good offer running this past week. Spend £125 and receive their best of 2015 goody bag which includes a brand new Oskia product that isn’t out till March 2016, a £15 gift card for your next purchase and many other treats in cute mini size. Yes it meant I bought things I didn’t necessarily need but pop back next week to see what I picked up :)

PIZZA! – I’ve already spoken about my love for Franco Manca recently and how could I not when their pizzas just look this darn delicious?! With a new venue popping up round the corner from work I can officially declare myself pizza face and I’m one happy person about it.

Trying out some new nourishment from Kate Somerville – after my return from LA back in May there was one item on my Sephora wish list that I failed to pickup. The Kate Somerville Nourish Moisturiser. To go alongside my much loved Nourish Spray I was luckily enough to have one picked up for me by a friend so I can finally put Kate’s nourishing claims to the test. So far? Pretty good!
