I have already posted about Jo Malone, Diptyque and Malin + Goetz candles sets, and here are more sets worth our attention.

SKANDINAVISK Jul candle set, £55 from Selfridges

These look absolutely incredible, and who would say no to the Scandinavian vibe?  You get four 55 g candles. I need.

NEOM Scents of Christmas,( £49 from Selfridges and Feel Unique)

I like NEOM as a brand, and their candles are really cool, too. This Christmas they’ve prepare two scents which can be bought separately or together, as a set.  Christmas Wish  (mandarin, cinnamon & tonka bean) and

Tromborg Aroma Therapy Body Oil Lavender Rose Tree Review

I have posted about my gorgeous Tromborg Aroma Therapy Body Oil Lavender Rose Tree over at my Instagram a while ago, and it is about time I share about it. It was a very thoughtful present from someone very special,  as that person knows how much I love rose and lavender. It an incredible and thoughtful gift, that person told me that everything about that product screams my name, an I have to agree.

The oil comes in a luxurious heavy glass bottle which I really like. I just have to be very careful not to drop it on the floor. 

And the scent is just to die for, it is like my dream scent, roses with lavender, it definitely helps to relax and unwind in the evenings. While there are several ways you can use the oil, my personal favourite is

New Beauty Purchases

I haven’t posted about my new beauty and makeup purchases in a while, although I did feature them on Instargam, so here is a round-up.

Let’s start with beauty, I’ve actually got three products from Kiehl’s.

Original Musk Bath and Shower Liquid Body Cleanser which I’ve got after reading all the raves from Sandra, and for some reason I was expecting a more intense scent but I still like it.

I’ve also decided to finally try the hyped up concentrates – Midnight Recovery Concentrate and Morning Reviving Concentrate. I will definitely write detailed reviews later on, but so far I can say that on my very dry skin I can’t use them on their own, as I often do with serums/oils, I have to use a cream on top.

Finally, beauty wise, although I did not buy this product myself, and it was a gift from a friend, I’ve decided to mention it, as it is such a  cool one – Tromborg Aromatherapy Body Oil Lavender Rose Tree (which I have already included in my favourites). From the motto ‘Scandinavian mood’ to luxurious packaging, nice formula and divine scent – it is as good as it gets.

As for makeup, it was all about Chanel, YSL, Smith & Cult and

Current Hand Cream Obsessions: Soap & Glory and & Other Stories

Regular readers know that I am a hand cream fanatic, and I have written so many features on the ones I like during these seven years. The latest post was on Aveeno and Neal’s Yard Remedies, along with cheaper alternatives from Nivea and Garnier. Here is also a selection of my top 5 hand creams (which probably should be revisited).

And here are my latest discoveries…

Hand Creams Soap and Glory Hand Food and & Other Stories Couture Carnival Hand Lotion

& Other Stories Couture Carnival Hand Lotion 

I am so in love with this lotion that I have bought two bottles!  The beautiful minimalistic Scandinavian design, the convenient pump, the light and non-greasy but, at the same time, moisturizing texture.  And the smell. Oh, the smell of it!

I mean, you can’t go wrong with with something described as “rainbow
