This week has been super fun on the Blogging front with some fabulous events in Manchester! Last Tuesday saw Selfridges present their press preview of all the gorgeous Christmas gifts and treats available as #SELFRIDGESROCKSCHRISTMAS ❤❤❤

I am like Mrs Christmas so this event was right up my street, I mean, have you ever seen someone look quite so excited to have a photo with the big man himself?!


Food, Glorious Food! I always think that you can't really go wrong with foodie gifts, especially if you don't really know what to buy for someone then a well thought treat to eat (or drink!) can be a winner.

The narcissist in me loves to see my name emblazoned across items and Selfridges can make that happen on a number of gifts! From personalised Reese's Spread to Veuve Cliquot, your very own Lindt Teddy to some more festive fizz from Moet & Chandon there are plenty of options across all budgets.

Tis' the season to indulge... amiright?!


I made a beeline for the fashion and accessories display as  *THAT* gorgeous emerald Stella McCartney Bag was calling my name...

I think it goes without saying that Selfridges has some incredible pieces that most would LOVE to receive as a gift, at a variety of price points. Personal faves include; Astrid & Miyu Jewellery, Kate Spade Stationery and White Company Cashmere Socks.


2018 seems to be the year of the advent calendar! I have never known of so many brands doing them. I love all the Christmas gift sets available as they tend to be good value for money and an opportunity to try products you might not have done before.

Some of Selfridges offerings this year are MEGA, I'm talking about you Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro Collection Box Set, which priced at £600+ is definitely a big treat! There are some gorgeous gifts available and I have my eyes on this IT Cosmetics Brush Set which is DREAMY.


With my nephew now on the scene and another hot on his heels, Christmas is going to get a whole new lease of life... nothing is more magical to me than the build up to Christmas, a plate for Santa on Christmas Eve and all the festive excitement in December.

Selfridges has some AMAZING gifts available, I actually want this Hogwarts Express Lego Set for myself...! I am also informed that Smiggle is a big hit with the kids so when I saw that they are doing an advent calendar I made a mental note to tell all the parents I knew about it! I thought it was reasonably priced too at £25.


Sometimes it's nice to buy something luxe for your family and friends that they wouldn't buy for themselves... I'm thinking gorgeous candles, pyjamas, card holders, socks, scarves - budget can be stocking filler size or more! My fave candle has to be The White Company Winter scent - I start burning these when the weather turns (like today) and love the scent so much, it is like an annual ritual!

I am loving these Amber Champagne Glasses and given my love for sparkling water it would probably make sense to start making my own with this SODASTREAM!

Obviously Christmas isn't all about the gifts, more spending time with your loved ones...however I absolutely love making everyone smile with a thoughtful present or two!

Best start making those lists for Santa guys and gals!

Thank you to Selfridges and Carousel PR for a wonderful evening.
