Valentine’s Day Gifts That Are WAY Better Than Chocolate And Flowers

Hey Lovelies!

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and whilst we are aware it may well be yet another well-marketed way of cashing in on the customer, we need something to cheer us up on the frankly freezing cold and dreary winter mornings – and what better way of doing this than imagining the postman falling over as he struggles to carry a tonne of cards and presents to your door? For anyone wondering what to gift the love of their life this February 14, read on:

1.Personalised Wood Memory Box For Couples by DUST AND THINGS, £17.49 (Was £34.99), notonthehighstreet.com

As far as romance goes – this is way up there. Made from solid pine wood, this rustic-looking personalised memory is the perfect gift for you to keep tokens of your sweetest memories and experiences safe, so they can be treasured forever.

2.Return To Tiffany Bead Bracelet, £145, tiffany.co.uk

OK, so maybe there is something that beats the memory box; behold the Tiffany’s Bead Bracelet. As a true sucker for all Tiffany’s jewellery, I may be slightly biased – but I think this beautifully elegant bead bracelet featuring a mini heart tag in pink would be a winner this Valentine’s Day.

3.Personalised Plaited Leather Bracelet, £14.99, prezzybox.com

Whilst it might not go down to well should he buy you an expensive Tiffany’s bracelet and I return you gifted him this – something has to be said for the romantic gesture this man’s bracelet evokes. Featuring a matte metal engraved charm, he doesn’t need to be a hippie or surfer to appreciate this gorgeously stylish band. After all, each time he glances at his watch/Fitbit/sleeve he will (hopefully) smile at your thoughtful declaration of love.

4.Personalised I Love You Candle, £8.99, findmeagift.co.uk

Everyone loves a candle, don’t they? Even if they aren’t at the top of your fave list, come the most romantic night of the year, these little gems are a must-have. So, what better way to show your adoration for that special someone by making them their perfect meal, amidst candlelight that is that little bit more special?

5.Multi Photo Upload Framed Print – Photos With Message, £19.99, gettingpersonal.co.uk

Nothing says “I love you and I made a real effort this year” more than this Multi Photo Upload Print. Available in either a black or white frame, simply add up to 20 gorgeous pics of your choice and a message of up to 30 characters, then click preview to make sure it is right – and boom – you have one of the most romantic presents you can think of. This is so special, it is bound to earn you brownie points for the rest of the year, too!

Discover The Best Vegan-Friendly Brands Of 2019

Hey Lovelies!

I hope you are all having a good week so far. So many people are searching for ways in which to live a healthier lifestyle, with veganism now becoming a huge trend. This is also applied to skincare and makeup, and as such, vegan products are becoming ever-more popular. Check out the best vegan skincare and makeup brands/products of 2019.

1.E.l.f Cosmetics

Should you want A-Mazing beauty products that are vegan-friendly, good enough to give M.A.C a run for their money and yet are somehow completely affordable (who the hell doesn’t?) then you have to check out E.l.f Cosmetics. If you are looking for entirely vegan products keep in mind that whilst the cosmetics are all vegan, some of their skincare and makeup brushes aren’t, so double-check before purchasing these. Buy their Elf and Mattifying Mist (£9) here

2.Jeffree Star

If you check out her website you will find the #Vegan section, presenting the vegan products that you can buy now. Check out her Lock-It Finishing Powder ($29) here.

4.Milk Cosmetics

When I heard that the much-loved U.S brand, Milk Makeup are (finally) to launch in the U.K I was on cloud 9. I have been waiting to get hold of these for-like-ever! Milk Makeup cosmetics are cruelty-free, vegan-friendly and their roll-on or stick makeup products prove to be a huge success. I cannot wait to try their innovative roll-on stick face mask. You won’t have to wait for much longer to try these highly anticipated products as they will be available from January 28 at Cult Beauty. #loveveganbeauty.

What do you think to these vegan brands? Have you tried any of their products and what was your experience? Let me know in the comments below. xx

More Amazing January Sales Bargains Way Too Good To Miss!

Hey Lovelies!

I’m sure there’s very few people who haven’t heard the sound that comes very shortly after the jingle of Santa’s sleigh bells in the distance – I’m referring to the sound of someone saying, “Why didn’t Santa remember the (whatever) I put on my list?” With Argos providing up to a very generous 50% off, we can breathe a sigh of relief. This bargain is pure magic for me, as I know someone who wants to return presents and would adore these headphones (I think). Better yet,  there’s a saving of almost £40 here – who doesn’t love a bargain? Note to self: always check they will love the replacement item before ordering as you go it so wrong the first time!

With the cold winds raging outside and no sign of a weather reprieve in sight, there’s never been a better time to invest in some cosy clothes – and this gorgeous fine-knit jumper says cosy, sexy and stylish. Team with your wide-flared or high-cut skinny jeans (set be key trends for 2019).

N.B: H&M are offering up to 70% off. #YAAASSS!

4.Almond Nourishing Body Butter £7.50 (Was£15), bodyshop.com

Everyone loves the Body Shop but if I’m honest it is always on the ‘it’s a tad too pricey for a bath bomb’ side, which means I can only justify treating myself/family to these beautiful bath treats once a month. That being said, now is the time to swipe a bargain and their Almond Nourishing Body Butter is incredible for the skin and right now is a total steal! with up to 50% off in store and online, you can stock up on all the bath bombs and body butters your heart desires!
