Molton Brown Ylang-Ylang collection

I know it's only November, but if you don't want to stress this Christmas with last minute shopping, create your list with ideas and gifts now.  And about gifts, recently I got this gorgeous gift set of the Ylang Ylang Collection from Molton Brown just in time for Christmas. Ylang Ylang is inspired by Madagascar. A special blend of yuan zhi extract and Madagascan ylang-ylang oil are believed to calm the senses and bring harmony. The smell of this collection is unbelievable, it takes off all the stress from your mind.

I love this body wash, it forms a creamy rich lather, but never strips the skin and leaves a delicate scent without being overpowering. 
Nourishing body lotion is a MUST-HAVE, it's not just the name, it really does make wonders to your skin.
I've never tried their body scrubs before, so I was really excited and I have to admit it is one of the best scrubs I've ever tried. It contains black vanilla grains and exfoliates really well and at the same time it hydrates your skin. It's like a spa in the tub. Well done, Molton Brown!
A relaxing, indulgent eau de toilette blended with notes of ylang-ylang, cardamom and vanilla, left a sweet honeyed trail of woody notes on your skin, perfect scent for cold weather.

Overall, I can totally recommend to try this gift set, because all products are amazing.

Also there are three limited Christmas editions: Fabled Juniper berries & Lapp Pine, Festive Frankincense & Allspice and Vintage 2016 with Elderflower. Have a look at the candles, they all look fantastic!

personalised gift idea | The body shop CHRISTMAS collection 2016

This Holiday season The Body Shop has some fabulous new gift ideas as always! There are 3 new limited edition scents for the holidays. Frosted Berries, Vanilla Chai and Spiced Apple.

Frosted Berries is infused with Cranberry extract from north America, this great gift scented with fresh notes of juicy berries, white flowers, creamy praline and sweet vanilla is perfect for anyone wild about fruity fragrances, like me.

Vanilla Chai is enriched with vanilla extract from Madagascar with spiced notes of vanilla warmed with addictive cardamon and star anise. It's not my cup of tea, but I'm sure lots of people will love it!

Spiced Apple  range is enriched with warm notes of cinnamon and maybe a splash of cardamon and this reminded me the smell of freshly baked apple pie! It is so warm and it just wraps around you like a blanket.
In honour of their 40th Anniversary and their continuous campaign against animal testing and protecting endangered animals they have dedicated and created some very wild options #junglebells. With every special Christmas gift purchased this holiday season, they are restoring 1 square foot of Rain Forest. Specifically in Vietnam, Malaysia and Indonesia where The Body Shop will continue to build Bio-Bridges to aid damaged habitats and endangered animals such as the Sumutran Tigers, Malayan Tigers, Asian Elephants and Sumutran Orangutangs in finding their matches. 

Who can resist a personalised gift? This year you can buy body butters with customised labels! I was so thrilled to receive this special personalised Spiced Apple body butter! 

Are you excited about The Body Shop’s new Holiday 2016 Collection? I AM!

MAC lipstick collection

If you don't know I am a huge fan of MAC lipsticks, especially matte and today I'd love to share with you my MAC lipstick collection. I have 7 and I still want more. My favourite is Please Me, Diva and Ruby Woo. What's yours?

Please Me is a muted rosy tinted pink color in matte formulation, very pigmented and opaque. Unlike Mac Ruby Woo, Please Me is not extremely drying, but last for 4-5 hours without touch up. Please Me is very girly colour and perfect everyday shade that manages to brighten my face even without any other makeup on.

Ruby Woo is really matte, personally I find it too dry, so always use a lip balm. Although it's not easy to apply (it's ridiculously stiff), I really like how long lasting this lipstick is (around 5-6 hours, lasts over coffee and food).
Love this shade, it's the type of red that looks really gorgeous on most people. It's classic colour makes everything pop, definitely the best red lip colour ever. 
This lipstick does not need a long review as it is a gorgeous, true red. I would recommend this to everyone and anyone who was looking for the perfect red lips.

Diva is gorgeous berry plum shade with red undertones. This lipstick is my favourite for the Autumn and Winter due to the deep plum shade. 
It has quite a creamy texture, easy to apply and it did not dry out my lips. Although it is a matte lipstick, it leaves more satin finish - which is not a bad thing as for me. Nice colour which helps make your lips look fuller.
This lipstick emphasises any uneven or dry patches, so make sure to give the lips a light scrub before applying it and use lip balm too.
