Christmas gift guide | His stocking

 
Not everyone does a stocking from their partners nor receive one from family, but for me they are somewhat a magical way to give presents. In Christmas stories you read as a child, they all had stockings and that's just the way it's always been with my family. I've made a conscious effort this year to start shopping for stockings and small presents early on, so I can proudly say I've basically finished my boyfriends stocking, which lightens the load a bit on the lead up to the big day. I like to include small handy things in a stocking that Tony will need or uses on a regular basis (Tony is your reading this, I've made a point of not including anything I've got for you).

Wahl Sterling Beard Oil - If he doesn't have facial hair you could go down the moisturiser route or even hair clay, etc. Something that they use every day that is domestic. Tony has facial hair and without fail will get some sort of beard oil or treatment which he does use all the time and likes to have a range of scents. I know this set is probably a bit pricey for a stocking, but, you could split the set and gift two to someone else?

Star wars soap - My dad especially loves getting soap in his stocking. I find this strange as I can't stand the feel of original soap on my skin, but apparently this is a male thing. You can get so many designs to suit what they like and are pretty good on the price front, so if you know a guy who likes a good original bar of soap, then a funky design is the one for them. 

Novelty socks - Without fail I will get Tony socks. He doesn't mind going quite out there with socks and normally goes for a comic theme or Star Wars, but love the look of these Rudolf ones from ASOS! It's a way of letting out my inner child, I think, and feel everyone enjoys having a bit of fun with socks and underwear in general.

Boxers - They're useful and you can either go the fun route or the straight forward classic route. Personally, I mix it up and get a bit of both. Primark are great for some fun boxers if you want some funky colours or themes, but TKMaxx is up there for best price good quality sets. 

Beard or hair comb - For long beards, short beards, comb-over hairstyles every other male is sporting, the guys will love a comb in their stocking. This just looks cool and a bit retro which Tony loves, so this is a great addition to a stocking.If not a comb, maybe something like a male grooming tool if they use them, or if they should start to and just need a handy hint.

Marvel trivia game - Whether its a simple pack of cards, or a mini poker set, this would go down a treat. You never know when you'll fancy cracking out a game with family, friends or with your partner. I actually like the sound of this trivia game and would quite like to play it. They always go down well as a drinking game with a few bevvies.

Card holder or mini wallet - Great for a night out if they don't want to take their entire wallet, because if you guys have a boyfriend like mine who gets shot happy on a night out, I like to ban the credit card. This is plain, simple and stylish and I bet they'd use it quite a bit.

I'd love you for to link me to any gift guides you've done or seen as I'd like some more inspiration for gifts I still need to get.

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

AD with Yes To Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day! I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine. Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down. What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the  Yes To Cucumber  range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try!  It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a

Current Cruelty Free Skincare & Lip care Gang | AD

*This post features an advertorial with P'URE Papaya Lips Hi, hey, how are ya? It's been a while I know, and I'm sorry. I needed some time to settle into freelance life (which, I'm loving btw), and just some time to get into the new swing of things you know.  So anyway, that can be saved and chucked into a separate blog post (let me know if you fancy that).  Over on Instagram I've been sharing the odd product here and there over the last few months regarding skincare, as my skin went super dry as soon as the seasons and weather changed. My skin was flaking it was that dry, and my lips were red raw and went without lipstick as I couldn't bare to put anything on them at all. Thankfully I ended up creating a nice little routine....more on that in a bit, and found some new must haves for hydrating and softening the skin and lips.  Lets start from the bottom to the top ey? I like being awkward! And, before we get stuck in, these are all products

Cruelty Free Living Products And Where To Find Them

A super sunny good day to you beauties!  Welcome to my first of many cruelty free living posts I've wanted to do for such a long time now, and I've finally planned them and can't wait to hopefully inspire some of you to make a simple change to support the unfair testing and use of animals. The most common thing I hear back from people is "it's going to be expensive" or "that's so much effort", well it's actually not and the only effort you need to put in is to just pick up a different bottle *holds head in hands. It's that simple.  Over the last two years I've been gradually replacing items in my home with cruelty free alternatives to get to the point I'm at today. The majority of you guys like me, go to one store for the bulk of your weekly/monthly shop, however I've grown to enjoy searching for cruelty free products and options so am now a bit of a shop hopper.  When I think of the places I like to hit up th
