Beauty – The You Magazine Beauty Advent Calendar 2018

Last year Ed bought me the Boots No7 Advent Calendar and I loved it! I was so excited to get it again this year but when I went to search for it I saw it had already sold out…. in mid-October…. and there would be no more stock coming in. I do think the world has gone a little crazy when it comes to beauty advent calendars. Some of them...

If you are wondering what to buy for the women in your life, I have put together a guide full of brilliant brands with products ranging from beauty, cookware, books and stationery.

Christmas Gift Guide for Children

Christmas will be here before we know it. If you are anything like me, you’ll be getting into full festive mode round about now and starting to think about what to buy for friends and family. I thought I would kick off this year’s Christmas Gift Guide series with present ideas for children, as I often find them the hardest to buy for. With new toys, books and games coming...

Preparing Your Home for Christmas

Yes, I know Christmas is still several weeks away, but it really does creep up on you and I always find it better to be prepared than panicking closer to the time. I tend to start Christmas preparations from the beginning of October, as it gives me a good couple of months to really get ready. I will be sharing a variety of Christmas gift guides over the coming weeks,...

Beauty – The Beauty Gifts I Got for Christmas

These posts seem to be so controversial. I personally don’t see why. I am nosey and love reading all about what people received from loved ones, friends and family. Reading other people’s always gives me an idea of what I might want for my birthday in May, or to treat myself to throughout the year. This year I got a lot of beauty based gifts, which I had mostly asked...

Merry Christmas Everybody!

Eeeek, it’s Christmas!! Well, obviously. I’m not sure if anybody actually reads blogs on Christmas Day, I would guess not… but I just wanted to wish all of my readers a very merry Christmas! I’ve scheduled posts in advance for over the Christmas period so that I can take a much needed break off with my family at this time. I hope you are all enjoying this very special day...

Mummy Mondays – Christmas Traditions for our Children

I’ve always loved Christmas – it’s such a brilliant time of the year where everybody come together and worries are temporarily forgotten. Since becoming a Mum, Christmas has become even better. These days the run up to Christmas for me involves watching Arthur Christmas on repeat, putting together a gingerbread house (that none of our family even like eating because the kids like decorating it with sweets) and stuffing a...

If you’re anything like me, you peaked a little early with the Christmas preparations and your Christmas cheer is a little lacking… Here are 5 things to do this weekend to give your Christmas spirit it’s second wind! Go for Festive Drinks Ok, so festive drinks are pretty much the same as non-festive drinks if you aren’t a mulled wine fan like myself, but...

Sanctuary Spa Christmas Box of Delights Review

After I had their advent calendar last Christmas, and absolutely loved it, I had been on the lookout for the 2017 offering from Sanctuary. I eagerly scoured their website, the Boots website and all the beauty blogger advent calendar roundups I could find from October to no avail. Sanctuary, it appeared, had decided not to go ahead with an advent calendar of their own this year, and I for one...
