A Bedtime Favourite

I've previously spoken about my routine for when I need to drift off to sleep quick, so the new Lush Sleepy Body Lotion has been a much welcomed addition. When paired with the This Works Deep Sleep Spray, I can catch a few winks quicker and it helps me to sleep for longer too. 

This lavender infused pick is calming and once it is slathered onto the skin, I like to snuggle down with a fresh pair of PJ's, a hot chocolate and a book to read whilst it soothes me. Aside from it's sleep inducing properties, I find this lotion is extremely nourishing and softening, making the skin feel noticeably different when it comes to hydration. It's fast absorbing, which means I can apply it just before I go to sleep if I need to without it leaving a greasy residue, plus the scent lingers on my skin until the morning. 

Although this product has quickly become a favourite of mine, it's only available throughout Christmas, so I would recommend rushing down and treating yourself to a tub or two before they're sold out. 

Have you tried the Lush Sleep Body Lotion?

A Christmas Gift Guide For Those Who Are Hard To Buy For

I was very much looking forward to this segment of my gift guides as I always struggle with those gifts for people who are hard to buy for. Today I have compiled a list of products and ideas for those who may be buying for someone who has everything, or for a long distance relative who you don't know very well.

Food is a fall back of mine, as anything for the kitchen goes down well. This Milk Chocolate Stirrer would be a perfect stocking filler, however these Charbonnel et Walker Pink Champagne Truffles always steal the show. As well as food, a cute mug is a good present too, this Patone Mug and this Urban Outfitters Elephant Tea Mug offering are two of my top picks. 

A new book or stationery will always go down a treat with those who are hard to buy for. This Ohh Deer Notepad set or Copper Marble A4 Pad would be great for anybody at school, work or who just likes dreamy looking stationery. As for books, it's hard to know somebody's tastes, but if you've got a slight inkling then I would recommend non-fiction books. If they're into beauty, Pretty Honest is a good book to buy, whilst The Little Book of Hygge is good for homebodies and The Tattoo Dictionary is good for any tattoo lovers. There's a book for every hobby, so I'm sure that this would be a great place to start. 

If you are really stuck, then technology is a good starter point too and I would recommend a novelty lens for your phone if you're on a budget or a polaroid camera if your price point is a little higher. Another one that would go down a treat if you have a little bit more money to spend on someone would be a Crosley Record Player, especially if you know they've got a bare space to put it in and are in to their music. 

Here are some of my top picks to jog your mind and give you a few ideas:
