I’m one of those people who gets their Christmas shopping done very early. I’m talking October. That’s when I start organising myself and thinking about what I am going to buy for my family and friends. I don’t get very much time off work over the festive season so I like to get things sorted and wrapped up ready under the Christmas tree.
This has meant that I’ve also had a lot of time to also spend buying treats for myself. Haha! It’s been ages since I have bought a new fragrance, maybe a year in fact. In the Black Friday sales I bought Dior Addict Eau Fraiche and YSL Mon Paris. I’ve been eyeing up these two fruity fragrances for months and months. Addict for about 2 years and Mon Paris since it’s release last year.
I have finally got my hands on the limited edition Christmas Cleanse and Polish in Sweet Orange and Mint from Liz Earle. Every year I remember it’s back, but by the time it happens it’s already sold out. Also got myself a couple of beauty bits, two Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oils in Mint and Candy, Mac Eyeshadow in Satin Taupe and the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Volume 3. Also picked up a bottle of Amino Acid Shampoo from Kiehl’s and a Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm.
It’s not Christmas without making a trip to Lush and selecting loads of bath bombs to enjoy on a cold winters evening. Every year I stock up on So White, the perfect apple scented bath bomb, but this year it was no where to be seen in store. Luckily I have still have a couple saved from last year, but thank goodness I later found it online and not discontinued it altogether.
I think it’s safe to say that I have spent a fair amount over the past month or so, but it’s Christmas!
