Yankee Candle Holiday Sparkles Advent Calendar

Don’t get me wrong, I love a beauty advent calendar but there is a special calendar that every year I cant wait to get my hands on.

That is the Yankee Candle Advent Calendar.

Winter and the festive period is a time in which I love making my home feel lovely and cosy and there is no better way to help achieve this than by burning a beautifully scented candle, so I love that for every day of advent I get to excitedly open a door to be greeted with a candle that will fill my home with wonderful festive notes.

This years Holiday Sparkles Advent (£24.99) is a dream come true!

This exquisitely presented calendar is decorated in the shape of a wreath adorned with golden baubles and plenty of magical sparkle!

The countdown to Christmas has never been so fragrant with this calendar boasting 24 tea lights in 8 different fragrances along with a cute little tea light holder.

Small but perfectly formed, each tealight provides up to 6 hours of fragrance and there are a great range of scents included within calendar.

Hidden behind the doors you’ll find;

All Is Bright
Crackling Wood Fire
Sparkling Cinnamon
The Perfect Tree
Winter Glow
Snowflake Cookie 

There’s also two newbies on show this year in the form of Icy Blue Spruce and Glittering Star which are both fantastically festive scents that infuse your home with the magical spirit of Christmas.

My personal faves though have to be Sparkling Cinnamon with its warm, spicy tone and Snowflake Cookie with its delectable notes of fluffy marshmallow, creamy vanilla, warm mixed spice and sweet buttercream. 

It just smells delicious!

It’s all about highlighters at the moment and as the festive season fast approaches there’s no better time than now to glow!

Perfecting your complexion at its illuminated best has been made easy now thanks to the new Cosmo Glam Collection from MissLyn.

Available from BeautyBay the new Cosmo Glam Highlighting Palette (£20.00) features six out of this world holographic powder highlighters.

These super lightweight, softly milled, silky powders allows you to create a buildable, luminous look for an irresistible glow that’s guaranteed to get you noticed.

The super cute cosmic inspired palette comes complete with a mirrored lid so you can perfect your glow even on the go.

Weather you’re after a soft subtle shimmer or a really strong look this palette has a shade to suit every skin tone and every occasion.

Comet Crush offers a bright, pearlescent white while Galaxy creates a distinctly stronger, golden look.

Big Bang features a soft violet shade perfect for creating that ethereal ‘other worldly’ look, while Cosmic Energy is in my opinion, probably the most natural and delicate shade of all with its soft, pinky beige hue.

Milky Way offers a soft, pearly pop of colour while Moondust offers a sandy-yellow shade but softer and more golden in tone.

Each shade is super soft and silky to apply, easy to blend and fully buildable so you can go as subtle or as striking as you like!

I love having the option to choose how I want to glow today with all the different varieties and shades captured within one handy, compact palette.

At £20 for the set it’s really good value for money too!

This is the first product from Misslyn that I’ve tried but after being left pretty impressed I’m looking forward to exploring her range further!

Kenzo World Eau de Toilette

Kenzo World Eau de Toilette is the new beautiful, soft, feminine fragrance from Kenzo.

Created for an inspired by a woman who does not take herself seriously it offers a radiant freshness and lightness in comparison to its predecessor.

Described as a fruity floral, the fragrance mixes genres and punctuates its floral boutique with sweet, fruity accents to create a beautifully soft and luminous scent that lifts the spirit.

Housed within the same iconic and eye catching bottle as the original, Kenzo World EDT reflects the delicate nectar within with its powder pink cap and bottle.

The gommato cap has been inspired by the Kalifornia bags and the pink gold drop bead evokes their eye of jewellery collection. Like a metaphor of the eye, the Kenzo World bottle expresses the many facets of the Kenzo woman.

Soft curves of the eye contrast with the strong ridged lines of the cap to hint at the different elements captured within.

“Kenzo World eau de toilette is a positive energy, a modern view of a feminine fragrance” says perfumer Maïa Lernout.

The mischievous and joyful scent opens with top notes of fruity, sparkling pear before heart notes of luminous peony and gentle almond blossom soften its freshness with a beautiful floral bouquet.

Feminine and powdery Orris rounds off the scent leaving a fragrance that it both bold and yet soft and delicate.

It is a gorgeous, light-hearted scent and I am addicted to its powdery elements which comfort and wrap you in a warm hug!

The fruity and floral elements are present in equal measure with neither overpowering the other, working together in harmony to leave a truly joyful scent.

If you like gourmand, fruity scents its possesses just enough to keep you satisfied yet equally if you prefer florals you won’t be disappointed either.

Kenzo World EDT is available now and costs £55 for 50ml.
