Gift Guide: Avon Absynthe Perfume is Green!

A perfume from Avon, I hear you sniff? I know, I know but I totally fell in love with the bottle and the green – I love love love this kind of snotty-bog green…that’s an awful description. But I just love this green. I always think of Kylie when I hear the word Absynthe. This scent is (they say): A mysterious oriental fragrance inspired by the magic of absynthe. Captivating green anise and saffron, enticed […]

Christmas Gift Idea: Ed Hardy Women’s perfume by Christian Audigier

Ed Hardy?! Ed Hardy?! I know, I’m not the first person you think of when you hear the words Ed Hardy but I wanted to share with you this gift which is for my 15 year old cousin. Teens LOVE Ed Hardy, it seems. There are two variations to this scent, in the pink tube and the black tube. I do think the packaging is pretty funky. The scent, to my largely unrefined nose smells […]

Gift Idea: Velvet Noir Jewellery is rather lovely

The problem with gift hunting is that sometimes one can end up with things for ones-self. This has been happening a little bit too often, and I ended up with some nice bits from Velvet Noir! I love turquoise. Its my favourite stone by far and this necklace (Tauri! It has a name!) also has Black Onyx, White Jade, Carnellian. (£26.99) My taste when it comes to jewellery is really really simple stuff although I […]

Gift Idea: Hello Kitty Purfume and Purse Set

I love Hello Kitty, and I feel the need to enforce this love onto other people, especially small children so this was my gift choice for my cousin, aged 9: Do you know which perfume she really wanted? J’adore Dior! No chance, kiddo! This is far more suitable in terms of price (£12) and just general cuteness. You get a little bottle of scent and a cute purse to go with it. It smelt quite […]

Christmas Gift Idea: Antique Hair Clip from Ebuni!

The problem with online shopping is that its too easy to *browse*. Do you know what happens when I browse? I end up with a ‘one for you, one for me policy.’ Hence I ended up on ebuni.com which sells all kinds of hair accessories, brooches and jewellery bits (affordable – check! takes paypal – check!): I love antiquey looking hair accessories so I choose this. Enough sparkle for the day to not look OTT. […]
