REN christmas 2019 skin care set

‘Oh That’s Rather Lovely’

Where as I’m a OMG-that’s-the-best-thing-I’ve-ever-seen kinda gal, my mum is a little more, refined with her compliments. Sometimes what you think a person wants, isn’t what they actually want, which is why I asked my mum… ‘Hey mummy, what gift sets would you love to unwrap this Christmas’ and she picked up a few things and said ‘Oh yes, that’s rather lovely!’. So, here we have it, as chosen by my mummy, a few rather lovely things!

Jo Malone London bath and body treats christmas 2019

Jo Malone London Bath & Body Treats

What can I say, my mum always loves a little Jo Malone London at Christmas. From colognes to shower gels, bath oils to body cremes, candles to hand creams. There’s always something lovely to be found at Jo Malone London! Personally, I love to buy my mum a cologne, as I know she will get so much joy out of one bottle, but she also loves the diffuser room scents and the bath and shower oils. But in all honesty, you can’t really go wrong with a little Jo Malone.

Ultimate Ears Unicorn Speaker

Ultimate Ears Speaker

After I recommended the Ultimate Ears speakers, my mum got herself one earlier this year. She loves it to play George Michael and Fleetwood Mac out of. When she saw my pink and purple unicorn inspired UE Speaker she said ‘this is jazzy!’ Which translated means ‘great!’ Or ‘lovely!’. Just so you know!

She says it’s the best hair care she’s ever used and for her more mature hair, she’s all about the Moisturizing range – Personally, I love the Curl collection range! It’s a brilliant brand and comes highly recommended from my mum! Get it at LookFantastic and if you buy it as part of a set, you get a little money off it and it’s beautifully presented!

Rejuvenated Repair & Perfect

Rejuvenated Repair & Perfect

My mum is absolutely obsessed with Rejuvenated, she says their supplements are brilliant and if she could, she would treat herself to them every month! She says she feels SO good when she takes them and they repair her skin from within! They are the creme de la creme of beauty supplements!  There’s loads of great varieties to choose from, but she really likes this Repair & Perfect set!

My mum is a big fan Bee Yu skin care, they are a wonderful natural skincare range from New Zealand which is fuelled by bees to nourish, soothe, firm and renew skin. It uses a blend of Manuka honey, bee venom and royal jelly; it’s light, rich, clean and natural and she really loves it.

Finally, my mum adores Diptyque candles, especially their iconic Christmas Candles. As always, there is three stunning scents to choose from; Pine, Spicy Florals and Amber. All stunning and presented in the most beautiful limited edition pots. They make an amazing Christmas gift and my mum thinks they are more than ‘lovely’, instead they are ‘special’.

    I’m VERY into the Diptyque Christmas candles this year – one of their room sprays has a tiger on it and I’m hoping it goes into the sales x
