I have been eagerly awaiting the release of the Lush Christmas line since last year. Not only are the products super fun and festive but they are among some of my all time favourites. During the December months I take the opportunity to stock up on (and stash away) as many of my faves as possible to see me through the remainder of the year.
Today I thought it would be fun to share with you my small(ish) Lush Christmas haul and talk you through some of the must-haves this year!
These days I spend far more time planning and buying gifts for others than I do thinking about what I’ll find in my own stocking. As you get older you tend to find more joy in the giving than you do in the receiving. That said it’s always fun to have a bit of a daydream and write a wishlist- it’s like the modern day equivalent of circling your most wanted toys in the Argos catalogue.
Vintage is quite often seen as the ‘in’ or ‘trendy’ thing these days. It’s become cool to dig through vinyl, re-purpose crazy printed shirts and deck yourself out in accessories from bygone eras.
I myself am a big fan of all things vintage and can easily see why others are so drawn to it. Asides from the ecological/recycle and re-use aspect of it all, vintage items are generally of a better quality and last much longer than their modern counterparts. Additionally, the design/style is better thought out and more unique than what is on the (mass-produced) market these days. After all, who wants a cheap, plastic-smelling bag that’s on every other persons arm when you could own a beautiful handmade number for a fraction of the cost?
December is finally upon us and now is the time to celebrate (and blog about) all things festive. Never mind that we put our tree up in November or that I have been merrily drinking Snowballs for the past week. December makes it all official and I can finally shake my baubles and shimmy my tinsel without fear of recrimination from the ‘it’s not December yet, what on Earth do you think you’re doing?!’ crew (Grinches.)
So with that little spiel out of the way, let’s move on to something super merry; November’s Lucky Dip Club combo box!
