Don't know what to get her? | #jaidemas


Recently I've started to panic as secret Santa is something I'm going to have to take part in soon, and also, will be off buying stocking fillers for my mums stocking as soon as my dad sends the text with the subject 'Help-mums stocking'. Your brain goes into overdrive and you start worrying about what items to buy and what they like and what if they don't like certain things. I'll always go straight to these types of items for 'her' no matter what age really as they are safe options. Never have I experienced a secret Santa/friend/female family member to be disappointed or not please with their present following these staple presents.

This Works - Deep Sleep Pillow Spray -  
Being a daily user of this and majorly addicted to it, I like to share the love of this product with everyone I know. Some people really don't believe that things like this work, but even if that's the case, it smells so nice and to receive a mini is a perfect trip away accompaniment. My grandparents are now into it along with my parents and they all love the scent so I'm pretty confident that anyone who loves sleep will love it.

The Body Shop - Almond hand cream-  
Hand cream is something I buy every year for so many different people and no matter what age, receiving it is always much appreciated. This hand cream is one of the best in my opinion as well as the Hemp one. Incredibly moisturising, softening and smells great. Depending on where you buy the hand cream from, you can get nice sets or, can get them singly and gift them to someone alongside another present.

Yankee Candle - Tea light variety pack -(similar)
If someone buys me a candle, I'm always so so so so happy! Candles are a fab way to gift people with something that will last and also be used, as who doesn't use candles ey? These little gift packs are such a good idea for people who aren't massive on candles and particular smells, but gives them the opportunity to try out a few different scents. Christmas cookie smells amazing! You must go smell it. 

So...? Fragrance set - 
I like having a nice variety of possible smells to reach for day to day and don't like to waste my expensive Tom Ford perfume on wearing it to work. So, for going to work I use body sprays from brands like Soap and Glory and So...? I have this set myself and think it's just a nice thing to receive. This scent in this box is quite a fresh and general smell so it's hard not to like it. Affordable, nice to have in a handbag just in case and just handy to have.

Flamingo candle -
I know I've already included a candle, but if you want to get someone a candle and want it to be a little bit more special than a variety gift set, then a Flamingo candle is where it's at. The packaging is so adorable and one that you see all over Instagram (so perfect for those posting a lot on social media). They have some great scents like mojito and Palm of Violets and so many more. I always feel more inclined to buy a candle that's in a nice jar as I think about what I can use the jar afterwards, as a cotton bud holder (love doing that).

All of these are items I feel are easy to buy if your in a rush or feel stuck on small presents to get people. They're all handy and nice gifts to give to someone even if you don't know them, I'm sure they'll all go down well. 

Have fun shopping!

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

A November Book Haul

contains pr products, *aff My obsession with books and reading is still going strong guys! Since my post way back outlining how I was getting back into ready ... I think was back in 2018 and here we are. I've smashed my Goodreads goal of reading 50 books this year, and I'm actually closer to achieving 100 books read. I don't want to put too much pressure on myself but, I'd LOVE to get there. Anyway, books are a huge part of my life now. And even though I like everyone go through slumps where I don't want to read anything, when I am in the reading mood I normally have a few on the go at the same time and have turned into a big mood reader. Which I've found actually helps me get through books so much quicker.  As a member of the Book Break Insiders Influencer group, I am lucky enough to be sent a selection of books every month. Which helps to keep my nose is a book that's for sure! Book 1: The Silence by Don DeLillo* A timely and compelling novel about what ha

Cruelty Free Beauty | Brands and Product Favourites

Good day beauties! So, you guys have been messaging me here, there and everywhere about sharing my top cruelty free beauty products and brands with you.  And because my cruelty free living post did so well, guess what you guys have today?  You've guessed right! And I'm super happy to share with you some top beauty products and brands I reach for, but first I'd like to just share with you why going cruelty free is good.  For me, having a cruelty free lifestyle means not using anything containing animals or their by-products, or using products where animals have been mistreated and used for testing them, and is the way I wish I had chosen to live my life a long time ago. Make up and skincare are products are materialistic in my eyes. We want these things and like them, so I think it's so unfair for innocent animals to be used, killed, kept in awful conditions and tested on against their will just so we could have that new mascara. There's just no need for
