Friday Fixation: Christmas in July

XmasYes. You heard it. I did say Christmas. In July. Honestly, with all companies having the Christmas press events over July, there is no way I cannot obsess about it.

There are so many lovely things (see what I did there?!) coming up from amazing brands, I just cannot wait.

And the Christmas Spirit really catches on.

So there you have it. My Friday (and for the next  months) obsession is Christmas. Already. Le sigh.

Faves include:

liz earle christmas

Liz Earle brings out amazing Christmas packs, which keep in with their signature aqua shade but incorporates festive elements, really settin their collection apart from the usual re-green-gold scheme. I especially like the cleanse & polish ones, but also the tree decoration nail polishes.

Amazon is heaving with all amazing products for all areas of your life – from tech, home and kids to fashion and beauty (where I spent most of my time!). A bit shout out to their fine jewellery (you wouldn’t think, from Amazon, eh?) including the amazing brand Kattri.


The shoes offer is also very strong with Sam Edelman, Little Mistress and Dune. Beauty wise, Burts Bees lip pens are just fab!

Crabtree & Evelyn has bird diffuser (how pretty is that?) I adore.

Also, they have a special box with 12 of their star hand creams.

Charlotte Tilbury has The Book of Makeup Magic which is just a dreamy twelve days of Christmas love.

I could leave my beautiful Coach watch (lots of love going for the personalisation) out of this list.

This Works has a fabulous Xmas range, packaged to perfection. Sleep Plus and Stress Less is the perfect combo in the shape of Christmas crackers.

Debenhams has tons of stuff; their Xmas showcase was great, but I fell in love with amazing fluffy reindeer pjs with eye mask (so in love I can barely talk about it), mega fun bags and fabulous (and possibly bridal) shoes.

new urban decay palettes - debenhams

Urban Decay’s Christmas palette, which I don’t need, but hell, it’s too pretty!

lottie london christmas

Lottie London has some super cute Lip Balm I am in love with, as well as a nail polish “clock” worth £50 of products for only £25.

too faced le grand chateau

Too Faced is bringing out the Le Grand Chateau, a pretty little house with two eye palettes in super wearable colours and mascara.

lolas apothecary

Lola’s Apothecary (which is a brand I love, as Lola is so adorable and her 100% natural handmade products are fab) also has gift boxes from £35-£60, containing a selection of amazing products in a pretty box.

ciate advent calendar

Ciaté never disappoints – their advent calendar is yet again set to be a success, with plenty of minis, a full size bottle plus an Olivia Palermo shade. And talking about Miss Palermo, there are new products coming for Christmas. I actually saw, touched and loved them. Sadly, I cannot share yet, but it is oh-so-pretty and super exciting!

And this is just a small sample from some events in the past couple of weeks! There is so much amazing stuff out there for Christmas that it makes me forget, for just a moment, that it will be cold and miserable (and we barely had summer).

What are you lusting after for this year’s festive season?
