Winter Wishlist 2016

, , 2 Comments

I’ll be honest here – this is my Christmas/winter wishlist or more so my way of telling the people who have been asking what to get me. As usual I have a heavy Irish/local influence but either way I would absolutely adore to receive anything like the below as a gift and I’m sure there are a few ideas for otherstoo.

Indie Fudechocolate treats indie fude

I became a huge fan of Johnny and what he does last year and ordered a few gifts from him throughout the year. I have never wanted to keep gifts as much as I did when these arrived. They have so many options to choose from and you can also make your own if you’re looking for something in particular.

Johnny and the team are a pleasure to deal with and they’ve even added in a calendar for delivery so you can order and postpone delivery in case you’re away.

 

Green Angel Facial Scrub

I bought this ages ago and have repurchased since. It is hands down the best scrub I’ve ever used. I use it once/twice a week and everyone complimented me on my skin. It made me less prone to breakouts and generally gave me more confidence as I didn’t have to worry about what my skin looked like.

They have a good range of products all seaweed based and extremely nourishing. I had the pleasure of trying out the body scrub and hand cream at a blogger event way back. You can buy from them directly or from their stockists nationwide.

 

Cocoa Brown

How cute is this new gift set from the team over at Cocoa Brown. It contains their collection of three dry shimmer body oils, the original Golden Goddess, the sold-out and limited edition Rose Golden Goddess and the new exclusive to this set Ice Goddess. Ice Goddess is perfect to add some sparkle to us paler girls or for the festive season. These are going to fly off the shelves once they hit on November 8th – in their usual outlets nationwide, Penneys, Tesco and pharmacies not to mention online.

It’s no secret I adore the Cocoa Brown range, but I have yet to try out their Goddess Collection. They also have their Kind Travel set and the Be Bronzed and Beautiful set so there’s something for everyone. Any of their products are a welcome addition to my pink shelf in the bathroom.

Busy Beaders

How stunning is this necklace? It comes in a range of colours. Helena creates wonderful hand made pieces that are perfect to dress up an outfit or add a bit of sparkle! I have been like a magpie since a mutual friend introduced us.

 

A Pretty Scarf

Don’t get me wrong I have a few scarves, we do live in Ireland after all. But mine are depths of winter scarves, one is even longer than I am in length but I love it cuz it’s so cosy. But a lighter, prettier like the lovely one from My Shining Armour above would be a great addition to my winter wardrobe.

Emma’s Soy Candles

I cannot get enough of Emma’s candles, they last forever and just smell so good. It is so relaxing to come home and light a candle and minutes later the place smells like heaven. I have written on here about Emma’s before so it’s no surprise they made it to this list.

Her limited edition fragrances are my favourite, especially the Mint Crisp but after trying out more of the fragrances after our haul at Bloom this year I am so into the Citronella candle, and it lasts forever! They have a range of gift sets also but the candles or wax melts on their own can make a great stocking fillers.

You can buy online at the link above or through her stockists.

 

So there we go, I hope this has given you a little inspiration on what to get for your loved ones. Are you trying to get ahead on the Christmas shopping? Would love to know in the comments below.

    Great choices. I can’t wait for the Cocoa Brown set to go on sale. I haven’t tried any of the goddess collection either.

      Thanks, me too although if it’s anything like when the Rose One came out I can’t imagine they’ll be on shelves long. Great to see you back blogging again xx
