I feel that a lot of my ‘wishlist’ items this year are very much things that everyone in my family knows are favourites and I was thinking a bit more of what is ‘new for me’ for this list. Something that might make my family be a little surprised when they see this. Hopefully it might help with some ideas for you or to help with your shopping too.
I had been thinking about doing this a while ago, having a lookback on my previous Glossybox boxes. Now it is November and everything is heading to a more seasonal look and I’ve finally got some time to start. Isn’t that typical?

I’ve got the latest Alice Hoffman book on the go at the moment, finally a prequel to Practical Magic! Read More
I have to confess these were such a random and “yeah I’ll give them a go” throw into my basket on a recent shop into Primark. The packaging told me that the mitts would remove make up with only water… hmm. Wasn’t convinced but I was intrigued and I know a lot of high street brands have launched or are launching something similar.
First of all they are white and I try to avoid wearing white, I have a set of white towels that I never use because there’s every chance that some fake tan from weeks ago could suddenly appear on them. I’m messy and I don’t mean to be so I avoid white. But of course these mitts need to be white because of what you’ll see on them… Read More
