A couple of weeks ago I attended an intimate event at John Lewis in Grand Central, Birmingham. Brum Bloggers were in attendance and we were treated to the little overview of what’s John Lewis has in store for Christmas this year. It’s fabulous of course. From gorgeous decorations, lights through food, little unicorn magic & of course beauty! If you’re planning on Christmas shopping soon, why not start there? 

My beauty shopping would definitely start with a fabulous John Lewis Advent Calendar packed with all the beauty by  Zelens, Omorovicza, MAC, Fresh, Laura Mercier and many more. Priced at £149, it’s slightly on a pricey side but all the treats are of deluxe/travel size, so you’re really getting value for your money. I have a huge love for advent calendars and this one hits all the boxes! Get it here.

Beauty gift sets are what peaked my interest during an event. With so many brands stocked at John Lewis, it’s hard to say no to a little beauty, am I right? Especially if beauty gift sets from Marc Jacobs Beauty offer an incredible value for money! The one that’s totally my thing is Marc Jacobs ‘Cats Meow’ Mini Le Marc Lip Crème Collection. Priced at only £37 will make a great gift to any lipstick lover! Sonic Truth, Goddess, J’Adore, Infamous and Currant mood are all stunning shades you can try at deluxe sample size. I recently fell in love with the lip crème formula of these, so I’ll be stopping by & grabbing it for myself! You can get it here

Have you heard of Twinkly? First, of its kind, this smartphone operated Christmas lights will blow your mind. Technology and tradition come together in the fabulous new decorating idea by Twinkly. All you need is a set of lights, a smartphone and an imagination. Imagine having your lighting change at your fingertips. Colours, tempo and more is achievable with Twinkly LED Christmas Lights Set. If you like me and love your gadgets, you’ll love it too! Prices start £65 for a set of 105 lights (13.5 metres length) or you can go for a large set of 175 lights (length 20.5 metres) and if that’s not enough you can always go for an add-on unit of additional 119 lights. The app will control a single or multiple sets simultaneously, so it’s a sure toy you’ll be keeping for a long time. Find them here

Or maybe you rather shop for a lot more than just a tree decorations? We were shown a fabulous set of stunning copper lights which will not only work so well on your tree over Christmas but also work well as a flatlay feature if you’re a blogger, a house decorator or a savvy photographer. Priced at a low price of £40, they’ll make a fabulous gift too! Aren’t they beautiful? Get them here

I have to mention Unicorn Tears. The stunning bottle of gin with multicolour glitter makes for a great present for an adult gin lover crushing on the current unicorn trend. I’ve tried really hard to picture the glitter in my photo but probably failed miserably. It’s such a stunner if only was I a gin lover. However one of my besties sure is, so this year Christmas present is sorted!!! You can get it here for £40.

At the very top of this post, I’ve shown you a fabulous goody bag*, we were treated to during the event. I’m so grateful to be invited and the goodies only made this fab evening even better! Can we just appreciate the gorgeousness of the bauble? I’ve already put most beauty to test. With the brands such as Clarins, Liz Earle and Marc Jacobs, you’ll sure be seeing it on the blog many times over.
