Tree decorations


There’s been a trend this year for tree decorations containing a wee beauty treat. I think it’s a lovely idea, and also one that stops me precariously balancing on a chair to try and recover the last Cadbury’s hanging decoration that I put round the top at the back to stop me eating it. Tell me I’m not the only one that does that.


Amongst my favourites is Aromatherapy Associates’ Little Bell, £10 which contains a small bottle of Revive Morning Bath and Shower oil – the quality of the fragrance is always top notch from them and it’s perfect to wake yourself up with on Christmas morning. I also thought Liz Earle’s Christmas Stars (containing a lip colour, Cleanse and Polish or nail varnish) were really sweet, £5.50 – £14  – Hibiscus is a lip colour I wear a lot and the formulation on the lip colours is great. Finally, Space NK have the Eve Lom Kiss Mix Star, £16, a lipbalm in a star – at the end of a frazzled day, pop this on before you fall knackered into bed.
