Whilst I'm not the best at regularly writing favourite posts, with Christmas just around the corner it felt like a good time to share the items I've been loving recently with you all - just incase you still have space on your Christmas list.

Jo Malone Wood Sage & Sea Salt Cologne*
I attended a Jo Malone store launch last week and received this travel sized cologne in a gift bag. I've had this scent before in a candle and loved it, however I wasn't sure how it would translate into a fragrance. Thankfully, I was wrong to be concerned as this is amazing - it's a fresh, delicate scent that's unusual but incredibly addictive.

It's hard for me to find the time, or energy to fake tan nowadays, but for many years my tan of choice has been St Tropez. Despite my loyalty, when Madame LA LA sent me some of their products to try I decided to edge away from my routine and give them a try. The West Coast Bronzing Serum is an instant self-tan for the face - it's infused with a blend of lovely ingredients which work to hydrate and brighten the skin as well as leaving it with a healthy, natural glow. It's a great product to use on the face to give a little colour to winter skin, and I have no doubt I'll be using throughout the summer too. 

Gary Cockerill - Simply Glamorous* - £25
Gary Cockerill is probably most widely known as the makeup artist for Katie Price. He recently brought out a book full to the brim with makeup tips and transformations to help you feel the best version of yourself. Despite not being a fan of the Katie Price look, I was actually really impressed with this book (far more than I thought I'd be). It's a lovely book to sit and browse through to pick up some new makeup tips or inspiration and would be a great gift for someone whose looking to get into makeup for the first time. 

I'm a Charlotte Tilbury addict at the moment, it's without a doubt one of my favourite brands and I've been using the products constantly this month. One of my particular favourites has been the Cheek to Chic Blusher in First love, which is a medium, peachy brown shade with a satin finish and warm undertones. It's a shade that I feel is perfect for autumn and different to the normal pinks I typically wear on my cheeks. 

I was introduced to Timebomb as a brand back in March this year and have been a fan of their products ever since. The Flashback Moisturiser is a super rich cream moisturiser that creates a light barrier on the skin to help nourish and repair it overnight. I love using this product when my skin is feeling dehydrated as my face always feels plump, soft and dewy come morning.

One of my favourite things to do at this time of year is transition my nail colour from soft pinks, to autumnal berry tones. As we edge closer into December, I normally find my nails are first to give a nod to the festive season, and this particular polish is one of my favourites to roll out at this time of year. The Alexa Lace polish blends a mixture of different sized red particles to create a lace effect on the nails, and looks perfect over a nude polish to add some subtle Christmas cheer to your outfit.

Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate - £36
I've raved about Kiehl's famous Midnight Recovery Concentrate countless times on my blog, but I'm loving it more than ever at the moment. It's an amazing replenishing night time facial oil with distilled botanicals that work to visibly restore the appearance of the skin overnight. My skin is utterly transformed when I use this product and it really helps to even out my skin tone and keep blemishes at bay.

What do you think of my favourites? What are you loving at the moment?
