Glam Wax Christmas Wax Melts

After treating myself to a few wax melt bars from Glam Wax which I featured in my Cosy Girly Wax Melts blog post, I was so impressed with the quality and all of the gorgeous scents, so when they released all of their new Christmas scents, I was so excited and couldn't wait to pop together a blog post. I realise that not all of the scents featured are specifically for Christmas but I hope you'll forgive me as they were too delicious to miss out... 

I absolutely love this one! Glittering Star has a beautiful white and silver sparkly design which goes perfectly with all of my Christmas decor in my living room and the scent is just gorgeous. It smells really luxurious and festive with notes of nutmeg, ginger, cassis and sugar plum on a base of sandalwood. 

I think this one is supposed to be based on the Yankee Candle Fluffy Towels candle which is one of my favourites and it smells really similar. It's a lovely and clean fresh scent that makes me think of stepping out of an indulgent bubble bath and putting on a fluffy dressing gown. This one has notes of rose, jasmine, lily and a base of musk. 

I think this is also another one that is supposed to be based on a Yankee Candle and I adore the Snow In Love scent as well as the creamy white and glittery design. It smells very clean and festive with notes of wood and powder and reminds me of a winter walk through the snow.

I think this one looks like something out of Disney's Frozen and should belong in an enchanting snow filled fairytale! It smells like crisp fresh snow and a forest of pine trees and also has a little hint of eucalyptus to it. I love the gorgeous icy blue and silver glitter sparkle in this one. 

I thought this one looked so Christmassy with the lovely white and red festive glitter and I can never resist anything to do with candy canes! It has a very sweet mint smell and contains peppermint, sugar cane and sweet vanilla. This one will be perfect for burning before taking my little one to visit Santa! 

I couldn't resist this Baked Cookies one as I love all of the sweet and sugary scents and it has a lovely brown and gold sparkle. This little bar is a mixture of sweet vanilla, sugar and chocolate and smells just like a fresh batch of cookies baking in the oven! 

I actually have this one burning whilst I'm writing this blog post and my bedroom smells like a sugary sweet coffee heaven! It contains creamy vanilla, sweet caramel sauce and a milky coffee base which gives it a subtle latte hint. Perfect if you love your Christmassy coffees! 

The last item that I chose is this Warm Vanilla Sugar bar which smells really sweet and also a little musky. It contains creamy vanilla and brown sugar and reminds me a little of cinema popcorn. I also love the creamy gold sparkles in this one! 

Have you tried any wax melt bars from Glam Wax?

Season's Treatings | A Pretty Christmas Gift Guide For Her

I'm really hoping that you'll not be fed up with seeing Christmas gift guide posts as I still really wanted to create one myself! I couldn't resist popping together some of the lovely pink and girly items that I already have and love and are ones that I think would make perfect presents if you need to finish off your Christmas shopping... 

The lovely Freya over at Freya's Fairytale popped this gorgeous Pink Champagne Candle from Chickidee into her princessy Christmas gift guide last year and I treated myself to one but I also think it would make the perfect gift. I'm not sure if I'll be able to bring myself to burn it as it's so pretty so I might just keep it for decor. It's a lovely sugary pink colour and has a luxe gold lid and actually smells like popping open a bottle of bubbly champagne so it's a perfect girly treat!

Another makeup item which is perfect for the winter time is this Sugar Cream Lip Treatment from Fresh. These lip products moisturise and smooth the lips whilst also leaving behind a subtle colour and the shade I have is 'Baby' which is a lovely soft nude pink. I love the pink and silver tube which would also make for a sweet little stocking filler. I'd also love to try out some products from the Fresh skincare range, particularly the Rose Deep Hydration Face Cream and Serum which both sound dreamy! 
I adore getting my nails done and I think it's one of the nicest little pamper treats but I find that I don't always have time to go and get them done as much as I would like. I love these little Gel Nail Polishes from Le Mini Macaron especially the gorgeous pastel shade range and this pretty 'Fairy Floss' is a sugary baby pink colour which is perfect for princessy manicures. Whilst you do need to set these with a UV lamp to get the full benefit of the gel polish, this would make a lovely gift idea and the little bottles are adorable! 

These gorgeous liquid eyeshadows from Stila are one of my favourite festive makeup products so I had to include this stunning pink shade in my gift guide. 'Ballet Baby' is a really beautiful glittery lilac pink which is actually quite subtle once applied to your eyelid. I've used this one lots and I've found that with these liquid eyeshadows it is easier to pat them on with your finger rather than trying to blend them in with a brush. This one looks lovely over the top of other eyeshadows for a princessy shimmery finish and there are lots of other pretty shades available too.

I was very kindly treated to the SL Miss Glam Princess Vibes makeup bag from my husband as a Christmas gift last year and I love it. Stephanie creates the most girly and gorgeous makeup brushes sparkled with unicorns, glitter, mermaids and sweet candy treats and she also has a beautiful range of makeup bags and a pretty pink Jewellery Travel Case which is on my Christmas wishlist for this year. This Princess Vibes makeup bag is a gorgeous sugary pink colour and has a delicate gold script font on it so I love to display it on top of my makeup drawers for decor. I was surprised at how much I can actually fit inside it as well so I keep all of my everyday items like blusher, highlighter and powders in this one! 

I'm not going to lie, I bought this product initially because of the pretty pink compact and the fact that it was embossed with the loveliest heart print, oops! This pressed highlighter is a really nice quality however and blends out beautifully to give your skin a subtle winter shimmer. There are two shades available, the one that I have is called 'Like A Diamond' which is a pretty shimmery pink and there is also 'Shine Bright' which is more of a golden shade. I always love to receive new makeup items for Christmas and when they are packaged as prettily as this, what girl could say no?

I found this lovely 'but first prosecco' mug whilst I was in Tesco and I thought it was a cute little idea for a stocking filler or a secret Santa gift. Most girls love drinking prosecco and I love the sweet pink and white glittery design of this mug for having your morning coffee in. It also comes with a little packet of raspberry prosecco infused teabags and is giftwrapped really prettily too! 

I love this pretty soft pink jewellery case from Ava & I which I use to store all of my dainty jewellery pieces in like my Pandora bracelet and a silver crystal love heart necklace. It is the loveliest milky marshmallow pink colour and has 'Bling Bling' written across the top in a dainty gold script font. Inside the jewellery case is a light grey velvet lining and a small tray for storing items like earrings and rings in with a larger space underneath for your other jewellery pieces. It's perfect for travelling with as it's compact but also stores a lot and doesn't take up much room in your suitcase! 

As soon as I spotted this beautiful Freya Swan mug from Sass And Belle, I instantly added it straight to my basket! I love snowy swans at this time of the year as I think they look so enchanting and fairytale-esque and this mug is just perfection. It has the loveliest sugary pink lining on the inside and has dainty gold foil wing detailing on the outside. The handle is shaped like a graceful swan complete with long black eyelashes, a gold beak and pink blushing cheeks which is just beautiful and will definitely make your hot chocolates look even prettier. I also treated myself to the matching bowl and the salt and pepper shakers so you could gift someone a little set too! 

One of the prettiest perfume bottles that I have spotted recently is this Thank U Next fragrance from Ariana Grande. Inspired by her hit song, the bottle is shaped like a broken love heart with the clear pink perfume in the middle. It smells really sweet, fruity and girly with notes of white pear, raspberry, coconut cream, pink rose petals, macaron sugar and velvet musk and would be a gorgeous one to find under your Christmas tree. 

The last item that I have to show you is this Disney princess castle trinket dish which I bought from B&M. I love trinket dishes and have far too many of them but when I saw this gorgeous white princess castle one with twinkling gold stars and 'make your own fairytale' written on it, how could I say no? It's perfect for popping on your bedside table to store any trinkets and will look gorgeous in any girly bedroom! 

I hope that you enjoyed my girly gift guide and that you're all feeling cosy and Christmassy snuggled up by your twinkling Christmas trees and indulging in a gingerbread latte with cream. I'd love to know what's on your Christmas wishlist this year!

A Princessy Christmas Wishlist

For those of you who are yet to make a start on your Christmas shopping, I've popped together a little Christmassy wishlist of some of the loveliest pink and pretty products that I would be delighted to receive. Although this is basically just my wishlist, I think some of these would also make the perfect gift suggestion for a girly girl...

What's on your Christmas wishlist?
