Aside from makeup, my other main shopping obsession is definitely all things lifestyle – I’m talking candles, stationery & homeware to make my flat as cosy as possible. It’s definitely an element I’d like to introduce more next year, so sharing my top lifestyle Christmas picks from Amara today seemed like the perfect place to start…
Contrary to what it would look like in my kitchen cupboards, I think there’s always room for another mug. Especially when it’s a mug as gorgeous as this Kate Spade one! Starting my day with a cup of tea is an essential, so this will definitely be getting lots of use and hopefully inspiring me to be a business boss sort of person in the early morning starts. If I wanted to be all extra and blogger I’d use this to store my makeup brushes in, too.
Of course, a new candle is always a good choice! They’re not always the sort of thing you buy for yourself (unless you’re me), so receiving one is the perfect excuse to light one up and snuggle away. This range of miniature candles from Voluspa all have beautiful packaging, and they have such a good scent throw for a little candle. I’d pick these for secret santa presents as they’re affordable but look a lot more luxe!
I have a bit of a thing for stationery. A good looking pen is something that always catches my eye, and this orange, pink and gold (best colour combo) is particularly beautiful. It comes presented in a classic Kate Spade box with gold polka dots on the inside, which makes me very happy. Just look at it. It’s made for scribbling down some new & exciting blog plans, that’s for sure. The pen happily has black ink (blue ink is not for me!), and it feels so weighty when writing. A new pen is the perfect present because it makes you feel as though you have everything together when you’re writing with a new pen in your diary… it’s like going back to school.
