The New Elf On The Shelf

posted in: Gift Ideas, KIDS | 3

img_1362So you’re all bored to tears by the regurgitated Elf On The Shelf posts popping up on Facebook and instagram this week, right? You may have taken a moment before you clicked on this post to decide whether you really needed to see any more of the little guy, well be glad you took the blue pill ’cause this is entirely new. Assuming you’re familiar with LUSH’s ‘FUN’ playdough style soap for the kids, they have revamped it for Christmas in a few different combinations.. one of which is ELF ON THE SHELF


So much more fun than regular playdough since you can take it in the bathtub with you and use it as soap.. also does the job of getting their hands super clean when they come to rinse the residue away after playtime. So much more fun that regular soap since it’s in the shape of your little dough model.. with the festive¬†benefit of Christmas colours!!

img_1401One thing we did learn (the hard way) is that these little dough creatures won’t last long left on the side after making them.. Milo wanted to keep his rather than use him in the bath and when he came to look for him the next day he was a pile of goo.. messy and not fun to clean up so they are definitely more for the bath than the kitchen table but Oh what FUN we had ūüėČ

A bundle of FUN is available for £5.95 in various colours

Soap & Glory Christmas

posted in: Gift Ideas | 0


Soap & Glory always have a good Christmas range but in recent years I haven’t been excited about the gift sets, this year they have really stepped up their game. The products aren’t groundbreaking or in truth all that interesting alone however the presentation is a bit special. The 12 Christmas Washes box contains (you guessed it) 12 mini sized face and body cleansers, a little different and I like it but the box itself lights up.. it’s just cute. The Sexy Mother Pucker set is four neutral lip plumping glosses in a Babushka-style case made to look like.. a Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss.. ok, you may never find a use for that thing but from a gifting perspective it’s a bit more interesting than a box of lip glosses, no?

img_9624img_9609img_9614But wait! What really sold me as an innovative and almost hidden gift idea was the ‘Khol-Eyed’..oscope.. I genuinely thought this was a PR gift when I opened the box but low and behold the end popped off to reveal 3 limited edition Crazy Sexy Kohl liners in the casing of this ‘toy’ that my son has since confiscated. I don’t know anyone who could resist turning a kaleidoscope to the closest light source given the chance and it’s kind of a classic Christmas gift, isn’t it?


There are a few other makeup gifts on offer this year as well as (of course) their big Boots buy ‘The Whole Glam A lot’ which will almost certainly be their Star Of The Week in a few weeks time for half the price so keep your eyes peeled!
