The Best of L’Occitane Collection

Calling all L’Occitane fans, allow me to introduce you to the crème de la crème of their Christmas gift sets.

Weather you fancy treating yourself or a loved one, the Best Of L’Occitane Collection will not just benefit you or your recipient.

Featuring a selection of L’Occitane’s best selling products this generous gift box is donating £10 for every sale to the charity Sighsavers.

Sightsavers is a wonderful charity that works with some of the poorest, most rural communities in India to improve lives by offering and strengthening eye health care.

What a fabulous charity and what a generous gift from L’Occitane.

So, by giving this gift you’ll not only be putting a smile on the face of your loved one, you’ll actively be helping others to be able to see the smiles of their own family members too. 

This fabulous collection contains:

Shea Butter Hand Cream 75ml

Undoubtedly one of the brands most iconic and most loved products, this cream is enriched with a whopping 20% of shea butter along with a blend of nourishing almond, honey and coconut oil.

Never oily or greasy, this beautifully scented cream with notes of jasmine and ylang-ylang smells like heaven and leaves your hands feeling baby soft and smooth.

Shea Butter Foot Cream 30ml

Feet are so often neglected when it comes to maintaining a beauty regime, but this no longer needs to be the case with this wonderfully rich cream.

Containing 15% shea butter, lavender oil, arnica extract and an antiseptic this cream works to reduce redness and irritation while soothing and relieving tired, sore tootsies.

Almond Shower Oil 250ml

This shower oil is my all time favourite L’Occitane product!

When it comes into contact with water the rich aromatic oil transforms into a milky, softening cleanser.

Enriched with almond oil it smells like heaven and it is so gentle that it’s even suitable for my super sensitive skin.

Lavender Foaming Bath 100ml

Ultimately, what I want from a bath (apart from getting clean!) is a relaxing experience and they don’t come much more relaxing than this bad boy.

This beautifully rich foam possesses a wonderful, delicate lavender fragrance to gently cleanse your skin while encouraging your mind to switch off and your body to relax.

Terre de Lumiere EDP 5ml

This decadent scent is L’Occitanes first gourmand fragrance and boy is it a good one!

Fresh and yet warm, I adore the sweet edible notes which leave the fragrance reminding me of  the aroma you might be confronted with upon entering a luxury patisserie.

Top notes of amber and pink pepper offer a freshness before mid notes of honey and lavender offer a deeper, sweeter, richer experience.

The fragrance closes with base notes of acaia and sumptuous tonka bean, creating a delicate and addictive warmth.

Almond Milk Concentrate 100ml

If like me you love the Almond Shower Oil then you’re going to love the milk concentrate too.

It possesses the same addictive scent of sweet almonds and works to firm and soften your skin.

This best selling concentrate contains walnut seed and almond extract to help to protect your skins elasticity while stimulating cell renewal, improving the appearance of your skin.

It is a beautiful collection which would be both the perfect gift to introduction someone to the brand as well as being an awesome gift for long time fans.

Priced at £69 and containing over £80 worth of products its brilliant value for money and you can enjoy the satisfying feeling of knowing that by purchasing it you are helping someone else to see.

Wrendale Designs & Giveaway

My name is Sarah and I’m a Wrendale Designs addict.

Not familiar with the brand? Fear not, I’m about to introduce you and I guarantee you’ll love it just as much as I do!

Wrendale Designs is the brain child of Hannah Dale. Hannah (who studied art at school before reading zoology at Cambridge university) was looking for an outlet for her creative and artistic roots so turned to sewing and began making beautiful curtains and blinds as well as personalising nursery paintings for children which were hugely popular.

Inspired by the Lincolnshire countryside (where she lived) and the outdoor life, Hannah started to paint hares. She loved their expressive faces and wonderful personalities. Others loved her work and she expanded her repertoire to include painting other animals - foxes, pheasants, geese, dogs and hens.

It was then suggested to Hannah that she design some cards and the rest as they say, is history.

Since founding her company, Wrendale Designs have won five prestigious Henries awards and supplies cards nationwide, as well as exporting all over the world. 

It now also has a collaboration with Portmeirion which produces ceramic, textile and melamine items featuring Wrendale's designs and it has also branched out way beyond cards to produce other stationery, tinware and a fab soft furnishings range.

And so, here we are today and Wrendale has a GIGANTIC fan in me.

I simply ADORE the beautiful paintings, exquisite designs and products that Wrendale have to offer and I just had to show them off to you.

They have such an expansive range of products and so many items that would make wonderful gifts for loved ones this festive season so I just had to share.

First up in my collection of stunning items is the A3 Family Organiser 2018 (£10).

The perfect combination of style and practicality, this calendar has space for up to four people to keep track of their daily appointments and features a different illustration for each month.

Measuring 300mm x 420mm it is the perfect size for fitting everything you need to keep on top of written down as well as having a space for notes and reminders.

I ADORE the large monthly illustrations (as do my kids!).

Another firm favourite with my kids is the Mice and Hamster Biscuit Barrel (£15). 

Quite apart from the fact this tin contains some of my kids favourite treats, they love looking at the cute mice that adorn the outside and top of the barrel.

The best surprise to this biscuit tin however is within the barrel itself!

Hiding right at the very bottom of the barrel you’ll find a cheeky little hamster nibbling on a jammy biscuit!

Cheeky little monkey!

One of the many products that would make the perfect gift for a loved one is their Mug and Tray Set (£15).

I’m head over heels with this set as it is just so unbelievably cute!

Featuring two porcelain mugs and a melamine tray these lovelies are adorned with beautiful illustrations of baby owls, hares and a family of ducks.

It’s the attention to detail that I really appreciate with this brand, such as the additional little illustrations within the mugs themselves.

 Both the tray and mugs are dishwasher safe and make enjoying your cup of coffee with biscuits a truly enjoyable experience. 

Another Wrendale item which makes ordinary things feel that extra bit more enjoyable is their beautiful Garden Birds Umbrella (£25).

If you have to be caught out and about during a downpour and require the help of an umbrella to keep yourself dry you may as well do it with style!

Their umbrellas are one of their newer products and are available in four different designs featuring animal patterns with contrasting coloured panels.

I adore this gorgeous Garden Birds umbrella featuring a selection of illustrations of some of the most familiar birds that visit our gardens. 

It’s the kind of item that you long to use as its so pretty, so you almost find yourself wishing for rain!

As if they weren’t special enough, these umbrellas have an embossed logo on the handle and a stitched velcro strap.

Just stunning.

Wrendale Designs have a huge selection of items to suit every budget and one of their most useful yet most reasonably priced items are their selection of Shopping Pads (£4).

This Pretty In Pink Pad is illustrated with one of my favourite designs, the Flamingo from their Fur, Feathers and Whiskers range.

Super compact and handy these pads feature a magnetic strip on the back so they can be popped onto the front of your fridge allowing you to jot down items for your shopping list as and when you remember! 

There is such an expansive collection of gorgeous items across the Wrendale Designs range that its almost impossible to choose a favourite item or illustration.

They are so beautifully and lovingly created that weather you’re a cat person or dog lover, find owls particularly cute or adore foxes there’s a design and a product for you!

Love what you’ve seen here? The super kind peeps at Wrendale Designs have kindly offered one of my readers the chance to win the same collection as featured in this post.
