It’s Christmas in just under 4 weeks, and my!-Is it starting to feel festive?!
This weekend, we went to a fab Christmas festival called Glow, in Cork. It’s magnificent! Check it out if you’re about. We took in the sights as we sipped some hot chocolates in the freezing cold temperatures.
We also went to a great gig that my sister was playing in a pub which has the ultimate Christmassy atmosphere, Sober Lane.
And today, we met the man himself-Santa at a Christmas party in a local pub and restaurant.
Judging from my hectic weekend, it’s undeniable that the Christmas season is in full swing. We have yet to buy a present! So, I’ll let you in on a little secret, I am currently in the process of ordering some of these gorgeous cruelty-free Christmas crackers, which are packed choc-a-bloc with some of your favourite cosmetics, from some of your most loved brands, for all of our nearest and dearest.
Here are my faves:
Sanctuary Surprises, €14.50
This luxurious brand has a few of your favourite spa treats packed inside some beautiful crackers. I adore the oriental packaging!
These are sure to lift your spirits. Find Cleansing Burst Body Wash , Silky Smooth Body Lotion, Green Lemon & Orange Blossom Body Wash and White Lily & Damask Rose Body Wash inside.
This adorable stocking sized cracker contains a product which is one of my most favourite lip glosses ever! The Sexy Mother Pucker lipgloss is fab for plumping up those lips. And the packaging is delectable. This is a nice, inexpensive treat for those of you on a budget. Pucker up!!
These vibrant red and pink crackers contain three of No7’s fave nail polishes; No7 Stay Perfect Nail Colour Cheeky Chops, Temptress and Me Me Me, and three of their best selling lip crayons No7 BB Lips Beauty Balm in Blink Pink, Ballerina and Blush Coral. These are all colours that are very wearable on almost everyone. And they’re really cute too.
