Very self-indulgent treats

Very self-indulgent treats

Is it just me, or does the festive season always get you doing that thing where you head out with all good intentions to buy something for your friends and fam, and then something catches your eye which is that perfect piece you’ve been looking for all season and then by chance it just happens to fall into your shopping cart? Well, this season I’ve decided to pre-empt this little annual occurrence by admitting early on that it’s part and parcel of my gifting season, so I’ve made a few on trend self-indulgent picks via which won’t break the bank, but will definitely sort my gifting-to-myself habit along the way.

When it comes to treating myself, my first port of call is normally accessories – think snazzy shoes, swiftly followed by beautiful bags. These are the closet game changers which can perk up a party outfit from ‘meh’ to ‘schamazing’ and this season I’m all over anything glittery, velvet, feathered or fringed; here are some of the high street heroes which I’ve got my eye on…

Surviving the onslaught of Christmas is all about taking a little time out and treating yourself too. For me, that means indulging in some of my fave beauty and home scent buys to serve up the perfect antidote to the madness of the season…

So that’s it! I give you full permission to stick with the one-for-them-one-for-me gifting ethos… mostly because you can be safe in the knowledge that I will certainly be doing it myself!
