Last minute Christmas guide.

If like me you enjoy leaving things until last minute or maybe haven’t yet started your christmas shopping (Don’t panic there’s still time) you’ll also be searching for inspiration for presents and also maybe inspiration for your own wishlist. I have decided to put together a little gift guide for all budgets, of things I have been gifted, things i am giving and links and ideas of more wonderful gifts i am yet to purchase or that i am hoping to receive from Father Christmas himself…

I always think a purse/wallet or a bag is a great present especially if a little different or designer. They’re a necessity that you know the person will appreciate and I find them to be a great present for the guy in your life who is hard to buy for.

Books are a great idea whether it be for a coffee table, a book lover or for a student studying the subject, theres many wonderful options.

Jewellery  has a special place in every ladies heart and will be sure to bring a smile to her face. Alex Monroe and Bill skinner are my favourite jewellery designers at the minute and i’m lucky enough to own a couple of their pieces. I am lusting massively over The Great Frog London rings especially these ones:

 Michael-RodentRose-Gold-Small-Skulls-Band-460x460 Ring-01b-460x460
I have recently discovered two more purse friendly designers who’s pieces are just as gorgeous. Estella Bartlett, who i found in John Lewis makes dainty beautiful pieces similar to Alex Monroe designs,my favourite being the wildflower necklace and matching earrings. EE are very individual jewellery makers creating pieces like no other focusing on space, animals, mermaids and just about anything you can imagine and you won’t believe the price!


For the Beauty lover there’s so much choice this year of many amazing products to suit all budgets.

Real Techniques Brushes  Make up revolution palette     MAC strobe cream

For make up beginners or if you don’t have a huge budget I think that highstreet stores such as H&M, Topshop Marks and spencer and & Other Stories all have amazing beauty products worthy of a purchase. Mac travel sized (located under the till) is also a fraction of the price and is a good way of trying a product or a way of getting something a little more expensive for less. Superdrug and Boots have ample choice for less with brands such as Barry M, MUA, Makeup revolution, NYX and seeventeen to name a few. I have been recently blown away by the Make up revolution palettes they’re incredibly well pigmented and have a great range of shades and if you don’t have the money for an Urban Decay palette this could be a nod towards and a fraction of the price.
