For anyone that is as last minute as me with their Mother’s Day gifts I thought I would share a quick look at some of the bits Selfridges which are perfect for any Mums that love beauty. It’s Mother’s Day on Sunday so you have just a couple of days left to pick up all your pressies.
My first pick from the lot has to be the Charlotte Tilbury creams, I just love the brand and these are a really lovely treat. I’ve tried the original Magic Cream which was beautiful and I’m expecting the same from the Eye Rescue and Night Cream. You could splash out on the Magic Cream Duo or pick the one item which your mum would appreciate most.
I think perfumes and candles are also always a great option for any female although it can be tricky to choose the perfect scent for someone else. Aerin is brand which I’m still exploring but their fragrances are real stand out products, they look really luxurious and elegant, plus theres a nice range so you can find one that your mother will love. Mediterranean honeysuckle is exclusive to Selfridges but pretty amazing!
I’m also really loving rose at the moment and the Diptyque range doesn’t disappoint! It works great for any age and I must admit that I am super excited to burn this candle! The Rose Roll On also comes in the most beautiful packaging, is the perfect handbag size and is very affordable as far as luxury perfumes go.
As my mum isn’t huge into beauty I often opt for body and skin products as everyone needs these and it’s always nice to make an everyday task such as creaming your body that little bit more lavish. Estée Lauder’s Revitalising Supreme Body Creme is the perfect pre-spring pick me up, it’s deeply nourishing and adds the most beautiful radiance to the body. However for my mother, top of her list is always a great hand cream, especially the Clarins Super Restorative Hand Cream which is the perfect anti0ageing, intensive hand cream!
For makeup loving mothers I don’t think you can beat a good lip colour such as the Giorgio Armani Lip Maestros which are grown up matte lip lacquers that provide rich, intense colour. Alternatively everyone needs a good mascara and Estee Lauder Sumptuous Knockout is the ideal one for anyone looking to add lift and definition to their lashes.
My final beauty recommendation is one I have been trying over the last week myself and it’s the Suqqu Musculate Massage & Mask Cream. It’s currently my favourite relaxation, pamper item. It’s a rich and highly moisturising cream which can really be used to massage the skin in order to promote blood circulation, hydrate and add the perfect glow to the skin.
Have you bought your Mother’s Day Gift yet? Did you pick up any beauty bits?
PS. I’m getting a facial tomorrow a Radical Skincare Facial tomorrow (which would make the perfect Mother’s Day Gift too!) so join me on Snapchat to follow my day: alittleobsessed
I love a good stationery haul. Other than makeup stationery has to be my weakness but I’ve recently been able to control it quite well, even if the huge Sharpie set from WHSmith was on sale and I have never been so tempted by something in my life. (slight exaggeration but they were incredible!)
The first thing I needed for the new year was a new diary, in the past I’ve used Moleskine but since I really like the one-day-per-page diary’s I opted for a Paperchase one last year. This year however I went for a Sainsbury’s one, Sainsbury’s stationery game is pretty strong at the moment and they have such fab prints on everything from notebooks and diary’s to pen and paperclips. I was between a few of them but in the end went for this black and gold polka dotted one and I’m really happy with it, I love the layout of the pages as well as the extra space for notes, I only wish it also had a bookmark.
Finding a notebook was by far the hardest challenge of the last few weeks but I love to start the new year with a new notebook. Last year I picked up a soft cover, black notebook with no lines (I think that might make it a sketchbook) from a Pinterest event and although quite boring it was absolutely perfect! The soft cover meant I could role it up and the plain inside meant I could write or draw as big or as small as I wished. Who knew finding a replacement would be so hard?! I searched high and low but everything had lines or a hard cover, even sketchbook in art shops were never right- often having very thick paper. In the end something had to give and I decided that I would have to buy one with lines, I spotted this pastel set of Moleskins on offer in Sainsbury’s and the colour persuaded me, even if they are lined. They’re also a little smaller than I would have liked but I guess getting a new notebook three times a year could be quite exciting.
Last month I was also introduced to Kikki.K which is a Scandinavian stationery shop, everything in there is so beautiful but a little on the pricey side if you want an organiser or something of the kind, not so pricey that you won’t be able to afford it but enough to make you think twice. I didn’t really need anything but could help but pick up a pen and some gold tape, silly but I wanted something.
Then onto yesterday evenings Selfridges purchases, all silly and unnecessary but such a bargain I couldn’t resist. I bought quite a lot in the sale this year (haul coming soon) but sadly most of it will be going back. Last night I popped into Selfridges in the evening just to exchange a lipstick and stumbled across the sale table in the stationery section. I largely bought bits for props for blog photos such as these letters which cost 10p down from £1.50, the string of stars £1 down from £18 (who pays £18 for these?!), some bronze paper for 20p and some gold binder clips for £2 down from £18.
Whilst in Selfridges I also checked out the Kate Spade section, all so beautiful but just so pricey!
