 Wow!! I LOVE this amazing advent calendar from Nivea. Try out a different skincare product every day and be all gorgeous by Christmas! Great value.

 

 

 Or if you’re not into make-up and perfumes, how about a gin advent calendar. Gone are the days of a miniscule chocolate treat. Yippee!

 

I was never much into eyeshadow until our lovely daughter took me under her wing and gave me a bit of a makeover! I invested in this absolutely gorgeous eyeshadow box from Urban Decay and I  absolutely love it. I use it every day and  it makes me feel all girly, even when I’m building!

 

 

These fluffy mule slippers come with bath crystals and foot lotion. Everything you need for a relaxing treat for hard-working feet. From the festive range from Baylis & Harding, who actually own my favourite pub in the Cotswolds, The Fuzzy Duck!

When you’ve been out in the cold and your lips are all dry and chapped, this Rose Lip Balm, from my best friend Carol-Ann at cettepetitemaison.com, has got to be a must-have!

Visit my Shop Page for pretty baskets, bags and other fun and colourful products made from upcycled fabric and materials.

 

 

I just can’t live without hand cream. I should buy shares in it! I would love to recommend something luxurious, girly and prettily packaged, but to be honest, this is the best you can get.  Stock up for winter.

Light up and relax, in the bath, in the living room, anywhere you like with this lovely Soirée d’Hiver scented candle from Bougies d’Aquitaine.

 

 

Still not feeling Christmassy? Put up some pretty fairy lights for a lovely festive glow.

 

 

Snuggle up on the sofa and stay warm with this cuddly fleece blanket.

 

 

You’ve just got to have Baileys at Christmas. It’s usually me and the dogs drinking Santa’s quota, whilst still wrapping presents at midnight, when everyone else has hit the sack! But…this year I have discovered these…OMG!!

 

I can highly recommend this Christmas Cookery Book. It has everything and more you could ever need to cook or eat during the festive season. If you ever get stuck you can always rely on Delia!

RISE AND SHINE

We awoke this morning to the most beautiful pink and blue Autumn sunrise. Mist in the valley and the sun just coming up was quite breathtaking. Especially for me…I am not a morning person at all. However, things are changing a bit. Having just moved into our new bedroom, at the top of the house, the sun literally streams in as soon as it’s up (kind of blinding you in the process!) and boom…”one is awake!”

“Aaaagh!”, followed pretty closely by “Tea!”. I am so lucky to have an early-bird husband, happy to trek off down, down, down to our basement kitchen and come back up with my lovely brew. Sometimes admittedly I miss the first cup, which might arrive while it’s still dark. Well what do you expect? But most times it is replaced by a nice hot cup, and then I’m ready to face the world.

 

MY CUSHION COLLECTION

On this delightful morning, I stood on the balcony taking some photos. The slight chill that we are now getting first thing, prompted me to think about embellishing our “snug” for the cooler evenings. Cushions were on my mind and I had such fun flicking through online and building my wish list.

Just in case you might be thinking about plumping-up your sofa, here is a collection of my faves. (Click on the images for more details.)

 

NOW… WHICH CUSHIONS TO CHOOSE?
