If you are wondering why there wasn’t a post last night, I was invited by the lovely Katie Kirk and Lush to a bloggers event in Crawley, as part of the launch of this year’s naked Christmas range.

More of that in a separate post later, but today behind door number 3 are these delightful Christmas decorations by Wild Home Online. If you are searching for a unique Christmas tree topper then these are perfect. I absolutely love their bright neon colours and the fact that they are made by local artisans, in Kenya out, from banana leaves and sisal.

If you are looking for a unique gift on a tight budget, then at £3.95 these are a great idea as you can also stand them together to create a stunning display. There are four designs to choose from including praying, harpist, trumpeter and star.

In addition to these beautiful charismatic angels, Wild Home Online also sell vibrant jewellery, bags, baskets, beaded sandals, homeward pieces and accessories – meaning that there is a gift for every occasion and recipient.

To see the full range make sure you pop over to their website.

You can also follow them over on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

 

I hope you are all having a lovely weekend enjoying the firework displays with your family or friends.

 

Love Emma

Good evening, guys and welcome back to day 2 of the advent calendar reveal. Behind today’s door I have the XO Balm which is brilliant for keeping your hands moisturised, whilst also offering protection against the harsh elements that come with Winter.

If you are looking for a gift for a beauty lover, then this is absolutely perfect as XO Balm contains four natural ingredients: coconut oil, beeswax, olive oil and chia seed oil. This multipurpose formula can offer hydration and nourishment for your skin or hair, making it a must have beauty essential for those Christmas office parties.

Also, thanks to its neutral branding and packaging this could be a great stocking filler for that special man in your life and the synthetic free formula means it is perfect for sensitive skin like mine. One of the things I particularly love about XO Balm is that it was founded with a passion for solutions, whilst also offering a sustainable alternative for our beauty needs.

At £12.50 XO Balm also ensures that local UK Businesses are supported as all materials are sourced from local suppliers, sustainable packaging is used to help reduce their environmental impact and they support a local charity ‘Give Bees a Chance’ to help keep bee populations healthy.

This little tin is so much more than what meets the eye and if you give XO Balm to a loved one this Christmas, you can guarantee that it will come sealed with love.

 

Reasons why I love XO Balm

 

  • Natural Ingredients.
  • Non-greasy formula.
  • Sustainable packaging.
  • Against animal testing.
  • Suitable for sensitive skin.
  • The tin can be washed out and reused for storage.

With only 54 days until Christmas, it is time to find that special gift for our loved ones. I have decided that after 28 years of gifting, I seriously need to up my game and with our wedding less than 300 days away, it also needs to be budget friendly.

So, I have made it my own personal mission to search high and low for the ultimate gift, to help take the stress out of the festive season. Behind door number 1, is a delicious treat from Bakerdays who offer personalised cakes that are literally a package of joy and at 5″ are perfect for surprising the unsuspecting receiver, as they can fit through your letterbox.

They taste incredible and I highly recommend their fruit flavour, which is a big deal for someone who usually hates fruit cake. My cake was so moist and a delight to try, but I will confess I loved my design so much that I did feel a little bit sad about demolishing it. If you want to send a foodie a unique gift, then this is absolutely perfect as it also comes with candles, balloons or even your very own Christmas cracker. This would be perfect for your boyfriend, girlfriend, grandparent or friend who lives far away, as it lets them know that you are thinking of them and can be tailored to the individual.

Whether, you are celebrating a birthday or anniversary, Bakerdays can cater for every occasion and even provide a little tin to ensure that your moreish surprise arrives intact, not bad for £14.99.

Do you fancy winning your very own Bakerdays cake? Well the lovely people over at Bakerdays are giving you the chance to do exactly that! All you have to do is enter here

The competition is open from 1st November 2017 until 30th November. UK entrants only.

Good Luck

Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the Autumn tree – Emily Bronte

Sunday 26th October, no doubt was spent in bed savouring that extra hour under the duvet by most of you. However, for me and Al the morning was spent in Costa enjoying a hot cup of chai latte, whilst discussing our flowers for our special day next year with our florist Natalie. Then, after browsing the Christmas decorations, we took a walk over to a cosy pub where I had a nice glass of gin, before venturing back out in the cold for a quick walk around the local park. Luckily for me the lovely people from Brakeburn had sent me some cosy pieces that I have been unable to put down since they arrived.

My navy insulated coat has been amazing and makes me feel like I am wrapped up in a warm cocoon, whilst also being stylish enough that I actually look like I have made an effort with myself. With November 5th marking ‘Guy Fawkes Night’ next weekend I am already very excited about going to watch a firework display over in Surrey. Normally, I would be wanting to stay indoors under a cosy blanket on the sofa whilst enjoying X-Factor and in full hibernation mode. But thanks to my new coat I am eager to get out and savour all of the delights that Autumn and Winter has to offer. I have already decided to pair my coat with my beautiful tanned boots from Brakeburn to help keep my legs extra warm, whilst I enjoy the fireworks and a tasty hot dog.

Autumn shows us how beautiful it is to let things go.

The days may be drawing in earlier and the temperatures may be set to plummet to a rather cool -11C but with my beautiful new pieces from Brakeburn I am very excited about going for Winter walks in Wales next month whilst keeping toasty.

Oh Autumn, it’s nice to see you again.
