BUY ALL THE THINGS!

So Ive just got an email from a company telling me they had "the perfect gift for him this Christmas!"
"Perfect!" I thought. I opened the email excitedly to see what original and quality gift I could get for a loved one this year and it was...

...a razor set. What? I mean, seriously? A razor and some shaving foam is your grand idea? I thought at least it would be something you couldn't pick up with the weekly shopping...but a razor and some foam? Here is my face at exactly that time:



So I thought why not do a bit of an alternative Christmas gift guide, You know, to prove I'm not a grinch.

How's about a little personalisation? A hoody (for them snuggly winter nights), t shirt, mug, mouse pad, pen, calendar... The list goes on. I myself am on Santas list for a pug hoody. Hell! You could even personalise that razor I'm sure!

50 pairs of socks. Because everyone needs socks.

Something you made by hand - this could vary depending on what you have in the house. It could range from a collage in a nice frame to a macaroni and glue picture. But the best things are usually the ones that don't cost a lot and have had some thought go into them ie. not a razor.

An electric razor, because let's be fair it's better than a disposable bic and some shaving foam.

Selection boxes but instead of sweets have little things that you and the giftee mutually enjoy. (Edit- this could be sweets)

Lastly, if you do go for the razor for the man in your life (or hairy mother in law) Then that's a-ok, I'm sure grumpy cat will understand.

Ophrys Skincare

If you have been following my blogs and social media you will have seen that I am currently partnering with Therapie Clinics and trying out their range of specialist facials to try and improve my skin. Alongside the facials (my second of which is coming up in April!) I have really tried to up my game with my skin care. Rather than just slapping everything that says hydration on I am really trying to target specific areas and problems. This has not been without it's troubles as my sensitive skin tries to adjust to this higher level of care. As a result of this - and a few other internal factors - I have been experiencing a few more breakouts than normal but I have been coping with them better. It's all about the give and take. And when it comes to the 'give' I was very lucky to be approached by Ophrys Skincare to talk about their new range of low molecular hyaluronic skincare with their patented Mini-Hax particle. "Low Ma-what?" I hear you say? Well... Low

Scented Scandals with Filthy Velvet

"Meet me at the tennis courts by The Ramore" It wasn't long into our afternoon together that Karen, one half of Northern Ireland's newest candlemakers  Filthy Velvet , laughed about the dodgy nature of our first meeting. It's not often that I'm asked to meet a stranger down a back street (albeit a very busy one near my favourite Portrush attraction) to then be led through stepped alleys and lanes back to their house! It's all a bit... Naughty. It's a good thing then that being a bit naughty is all par for the course for Karen who spends her days making and marketing her "Scandles". With names such as Filthy Shades Of Grey, Sext Me, Me So Thorny and scents including Leather, Irish Black Stout & Apple Pie these Scandalous Candles have been giving giggles to everyone I've heard talking about them. "Oh I want VPL!" Said no-one ever before their Vanilla, Peach, Lavender creation came into being.   It's fairly bril
