Calling all our lady’s of leisure! Or, perhaps those who don’t know what to gift a lady of leisure? You may have heard the saying, “the French do it better”, and when it comes to these Parisian made body products we can tell why! L’occitane have an incredible Christmas gift range from stocking fillers like soaps and mini crèmes, to luxury sets including fragrance and limited edition items. You don’t need to worry about gift wrapping as their wonderful staff are able to wrap all your purchases, whether online or in-store.
This year, MAC’s holiday collection totally knocked it out of the park with their ‘Snow Ball’ theme. The collection features an abundance of glistening goodness reminding us of frosting on a cupcake (except we wouldn’t recommend eating it). They’ve got a lip bundles, eyeshadow palettes, metallic eyeshadow compacts and everyone’s favourite; limited edition highlighters, so you can glow just like Frosty!
Christmas has never smelt better. I mean seriously, with scents such as: ‘Dancing Sugar Plums’, ‘Spiced Apple & Red Berries’ and ‘Cedar Leaf & Fruity Clove’, we aren’t walking past without getting a smell of these treasures. We know that a candle is somewhere on your shopping list, so save yourself the heartbreak of buying a candle that doesn’t smell crash hot and pop a Glasshouse Candle in the trolley.

You can look forward to bold and classic colours with different packs to choose from, including their original and mini sizes. Refresh the claws and check out OPI. Happy painting!
Who is Little Bo Peep, and does she actually wear bows? Either way, we have a feeling she was behind designing MOR’s totally adorable Christmas packs this year.
