Looks like Christmas is starting

There are some subtle and not so subtle signs in the shops that Christmas is on it’s way.  I happened to go into my local House of Fraser and see some bayliss and harding bath and body creams beautifully packaged in silver star boxes.  Perfect for a stoking filler of for a small Autumn Birthday gift.  I couldn’t find these on the House of Fraser website but I did find these pretty looking crackers full of Bayliss and Harding goodies at Debenhams.

My travels then took me to Marks and Spencer where I noticed just a few rolls of Christmas Paper in the card section.  I especially liked their Twelve Days of Christmas Wrapping Paper as I love Christmas things with a sense of Christmas past.

I then spoke to the assistant on the Origins counter in John Lewis who informed there are some gorgeous Christmas sets coming in soon so yes, there will so much to tempt us in the coming few months.  The warm up has started.

Christmas Makeup with Tanya Burr

I love Christmas Makeup or rather I should say that I love the Christmas Makeup rages that appear to tempt us at Christmas.  From Bobbi Brown to Boots No 7 most makeup companies will want you to part with your money for a bit of Christmas sparkle.  A particular favourite of mine is Chanel and I will bring you details of this as soon as it is released.  Many of the Christmas makeup items that are sure to make your wish list are limited editions making them even more coveted.

Another makeup range that I love is Tanya Burr’s, simply because her range has been created from a passion she has to show girls and women how to apply makeup professionally via a You tube channel.  Her products are affordable and available from Superdrug and Feel Unique.  Tanya brought out a brilliant Christmas range last year which also included her 12 days of Christmas Beauty Calendar.  Everything from the sparkling packaging to the beautiful Candy Glam Palatte provided us girls with all the glamour we need to shimmer through the Christmas party season.  Alas, due to this range being a limited edition it is now not available but you can get in some practice ahead of the Christmas season with Tanya’s current soft luxe collection.  The stunning Enchanted Dream Eyes palette will look beautiful for Summer and still look great as the party season warms up for Christmas.  The pretty shades all compliment each other in a very Chanel way but at a fraction of the price.

If you are  also yearning for a little bit of makeup bag sparkle that again you only get at Christmas this makeup bag from Topshop should be a welcome addition to your dressing table.
