Gift guide: tree trinkets



This Works beauty crackers

This is a very quick heads up on some of the affordable luxury beauty trinkets that are still available for the holiday season. To me, these beauty crackers and tree trinkets are no-brainers as they tend to be cult items and best selling people pleasers. Plus they come in at around £10-£20 which clearly means it would be rude not to buy yourself a little something for your troubles.

I can personally vouch for the Eve Lom Kiss Mix lip balm, the Caudalie Divine Oil, the Aromatherapy Associates bath and shower oil and the This Works sleep stuff. I use and love them all.

This round-up wouldn’t be complete without mentioning the Jo Malone London cracker. It’s not pictured because it’s sold out on all my affiliates, but you can probably pick one up in store or on the Jo Malone London website. These are slightly more pricy at £36 but they’re such a lovely treat and do contact three miniature products (the deets are here). As expected, the crackers are selling out fast at JML (as well as the Orange Bitters cologne and candle, and the advent calendar – no surprise there) so get yours sooner rather  than later if you have a JML fan to buy for.

The Michael Kors machine is about to get even bigger with the announcement of his colour cosmetics line arriving in August. He already has a hugely successful fragrance market (the scented Michael Kors leg shine is one of my all-time favourite products), but this beauty line is set to send his stock even higher.

Introducing Bella Freud scented candles



Bella Freud Candle

I’m a firm believer that your choice of scented candle says a lot about you. Luxe  Diptyques, Jo Malones and Fornasettis all suggest a person who enjoys the finer, prettier things in life  *nods vigorously*.

The fact is, most posh candles last a good age so you don’t really need to replenish. In that way, they’re a little like clothes, accessories, or indeed perfume, more about variety and the sheer delight of having lovely things surrounding you.

Proving my point perfectly is Bella Freud who has just introduced a line of scented candles, daubed with her famous whimsical slogans. Possibly almost better than a ‘Ginsberg is God’ knit in that you can enjoy this every single day – just keep it as a fragrant desk ornament (I certainly will).

The candle is available at Space NK in three varieties at £38 each.



Jo Malone London’s Blackberry & Bay and The Diary of a Nose



A new season equals a new fragrance, or so the glossies would have us believe. Actually I’ve been using Jo Malone London’s new Blackberry & Bay cologne since the press launch in May, when invitees were gathered in a W1 square for a breakfast picnic. Of course, it was freezing so we were swaddled under cashmere shawls, hot water bottles and outdoor heaters in typical attention-to-every-detail beauty launch style. (more…)
