Glasshouse Venice Peach Bellini - Personalised Candle
Glasshouse fragrances have always been the perfect gift. I think I’ve been giving their amazing candles as gifts for a few years now. I received a personalised Venice Peach Bellini candle with my name glittering on the glass - so luxe! Personalisation has been huge in this year and it’s definitely here to stay. Having something with my name on it makes me love it that much more! It might be to do with the fact that my name was never on pencil cases or mugs when I was a kid, now I make the most of it!
Recently I’ve been able to use the hand cream and soap too, these are just as luxurious as the rest of the glasshouse range and are perfectly matched to the style of the glasshouse candles.
These candles are also limited edition for the festive season! Featured is Summer Spritz and Dark Chocolate, Meringue and Raspberry soy wax candles. They're so sweet and their scents are so powerful for such small candles with identical scents to the matching diffusers.
I read a bit about the packaging for this years festive collection, it's so gorgeous that I just had to find out how it came about! It's an illustration that's inspired by the aerial views of Australasia. Noted as "a beautiful gift and perfect for those small spaces and niche places".
Another sweet gift by Ecoya is the Festive Bonbon! A scented hand moisturiser is a luxurious gift, definitely something that will be loved!

Fresh Pine Mini Diffuser - Fresh Pine and Summer Spritz - $29.95
These two are limited edition with gold lids for the festive season! They're fresh scents for the warm summery Christmas we'll be having in Australia. The fragrances are fresh, fruity and makes me think of drinks with friends on a warm afternoon. Probably because of the summery cocktail scents! Fresh pine needles, woody scents along with citrus and rosewood in the Fresh pine diffuser. Prosecco, lime, and cedar wood notes from the Summer Spritz diffuser. Now my only problem is choosing which one to set up for Christmas day!
MOR Marshmallow Soapette Bauble
The cutest gift to display on the tree! This is a sweet stocking stuffer that’s actually useful. Inside is a bar of MOR marshmallow soap. With Shea butter and cocoa seed butter oil, it’s nourishing and soft on skin. I adore the fragrance! I think it’s marshmallow and a mix of fruits. I’ll have to get my hands on a few for stockings!
(Not tested on animals. Free of parabens, mineral oil and synthetic dyes.)
Pandora'a latest collections
The Winter Collection is the perfect gift! Almost everyone I know has a pandora and still loves collecting charms. It’s definitely something that doesn’t get old.
The collection has me dreaming of a white Christmas with snowflake hearts and earrings, icy blue charms and silver charms studded with white diamantes.
The Rose Collection is another favourite of mine. Rose gold always looks so lovely and understated. The rings are my favourite pieces with small carved out hearts along the edges. Start someones obsession with rose gold, you can never have too many pieces!
Gilded Cage Eyeshadow Revelation
Perfect eyeshadow for party season! They’re glittery, pigmented and easy to apply with a small wand - so much easier than the pot glitters I’ve used before. I’ve created some fun looks with these already! They look amazing on the lid with a dark cut crease.
Naked Palette 3 - $83.00
The Urban Decay Palettes are iconic. The original Naked Palette was the first eyeshadow palette I ever owned. I have been loving Naked 3 and its rose-gold case. The colours are pigmented and there are so many stunning rose-hued shades. There are satin, matte, shimmer and micro-glitter shades, all with a velvety formula. The glitters aren’t as velvety as the mattes, but that’s expected in any palette with glitters.
Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette - $75
I carry this palette everywhere. This is the one I grab when I’m going to a friends place to get ready or if I have an event after a day at the office. It exceeded all of my expectations I had for it, especially after watching endless youtube reviews and looks with it. There are 14 shades in neutral, warm tones and berry hues. It’s pigmented, creamy and the shades blend well together. You could pair up any two shades in the palette and create an amazing eye look. It’s a good palette for a beginner and for someone experienced too, it’s definitely worth the money! You’ll end up getting one for yourself too.
Cinquante - Break Of Day Earrings - $85.00 - $95.00
These hoop earrings are also in the $150+ Guide, depending on the piece and size, Cinquante can be above or below $100. They’re handcrafted in brass and hand dimpled, the perfect bold statement! Read more about these earrings in the $150+ Gifting Guide.
Estee Lauder Highlight
A simple, elegant gift. This would be a gift for a makeup lover or someone who is getting into makeup. The pen is simple and especially good for a highlight under the eyebrow arch. I normally apply this in two streaks on each cheek after foundation, then buff out with a kabuki brush to blend it to a natural highlight.
This bronzer works wonders, just make sure you grab the right shade! I first bought this in a lighter shade than I thought I would be. It’s a buildable formula and you can create a look as bronzed as you like. It’s the perfect addition to any makeup collection and it lasts for so long! I have bought mine last year and I still haven’t finished it.
