Welcome to Part One of My Christmas Gift Guide, Grab a Mug of Hot Chocolate (Make it a BIG Mug as this post is quite long lol) and Enjoy...
With Christmas just around the corner it's about that time to get the Shopping Lists ready, the plans in place and enjoy the evenings of Hot Chocolate, comfy socks, boxed sets and faux fluffy throws that we all love.
Being a Self Confessed Beauty Junkie and Diva, I know my stuff when it comes to buying gifts for other Divas like myself. You could be thinking about what to buy your Girlfriend, Sister, Best Friend etc or just looking to splurge on a few goodies for yourself. Whatever the case, I've Included some of my Favourite products which I think would make fabulous Gifts/Stocking Fillers.
If like me you are a Nail Polish Addict and always have to have your nails on fleek or you know someone who is a bit of a Nail Diva, then the Sensationail Nail Gel Starter Kit: Gift Pack is an Absolute Must! Getting your nails done at a Salon can be quite pricey and sometimes you struggle to get an appointment. Sensationail gives you the professional Nail Salon results at home without the hefty price tag. (Retails at £49.99)

Another product which is an essential and a wonderful treat to your skin (or as a gift) is the divine, natural and vegan friendly Original Coffee Scrub from Frank Body The scent reminds me of Chocolate Orange and it's been a real luxurious experience each time I've used it.

Everybody loves Lush Products! They are the perfect Gift or Treat for any Occasion. I hadn't bought any Lush products for a few months and I knew it was time to grab some of my Favourite 'Snow Fairy'. I love buying Lush Gift Boxes and was really Impressed with the 'Stardust' Gift Box, it was like a little tribute to the late David Bowie. Have a browse at what you can find in there.....

I'm Obsessed with Aquis Hair and Body Towels! These Towels are an Absolute Must-Have for men and Women! They are so soft and on first glance you would think they are thin, but they are magic! They manage to absorb the excess water out of your hair without taking away the moisture. I have really long hair and I thought that the towel might not be able to work for me but it's Amazing!!!
The Body Towel was the same, it seemed to absorb all the excess water without dripping all over the place and both the Hair Towel and Body Towel still felt comfortable to wear on my skin, so much so that I stayed wearing the Body Towel and Hair Towel for the rest of the Evening. The Towels enable you to dry your hair quickly without heat, saving your hair from heat damage.
The Towels also dry very quickly themselves. These are an now an Essential part of my Pampering routine. Everybody needs these Towels in their life, you'll be wondering why you didn't have them before.
Aquis have a range of Christmas Gift Sets on Their Website to suit different Hair Types. You can find out more on:
