Don't Forget To Treat Yourself This Holiday Season | Giveaway.

*This post was written in collaboration with Notino.de

It's finally December, yay! The most magical month of the year. If you are anything like me, you are currently in full-on gift shopping mode. My list of gift ideas for my family and friends is growing and growing and to be honest, I love it. I just love thinking about what would put a smile on the face of my loved ones. If you still need some gift ideas, stay tuned for next Sundays post.. 

I also understand that all of the gift shopping can be quite expensive and the last person we think about in December is consequently ourselves. But I think we should all treat ourselves as well. This doesn't have to be a brand new designer bag (I mean go for it if you want!) but it can be as small as a new candle to make you feel all cozy and festive. 

So today I want to share with you my top picks for exactly that..  treating yourself.


Let's start with the smaller gift idea for yourself. Why not pick up a new candle? It can be as low or as high-end as you want. I personally am all about bath&bodyworks candles and when I feel like really giving myself a treat I like to go for Jo Malone Blackberry & Bay. 

Whenever I talk about this with friends everyone agrees that we never really buy perfume for ourselves. It's a great gift to receive but splurging on a new scent always seems kind of unnecessary. But sometimes those unnecessary treats are the really special ones. My all-time fave and a real treat is Chanel No.5.


Of course, you can go out and buy yourself a new drugstore lipstick every now and then. But we can all agree that the feeling of a Tom Ford, YSL or Chanel lipstick is just different. I mean, to be honest, everyone around us probably won't see the difference, but it just feels different. My go-to for a real treat is a Tom Ford lipstick (shades All Mine, Pink Dusk and Blush Nude are the most beautiful nudes if you ask me).


If you really want to splurge but it has to be something more useful.. why not investing in a new hair straightener. I recently got the ghd gold max and I am OBSESSED! I never had a ghd straightener before and if I am honest, I always thought they must be a bit overrated. But they leave my hair so silky smooth and shiny like no other does.

  2. My favorite Christmas song? Well.. I do have quite a few haha, currently listening to a full on Spotify list with many songs, but my fave has to be Let it Snow by Frank Sinatra - such a classic =) How went your move babe?! And thank you so much to you and Notino for this giveaway - love it!! xx Sarah @shedoesfashion

  4. Oh I rarely buy perfumes for other people because it's so hard to know what kind of scents people will like, love purchasing perfumes and mists for myself though hahah! The GHD straightener looks gorgeous and I've been eyeing it for a while. I just can't justify spending the money on a straightener though because I almost never use heat on my hair. But I imagine it's an amazing tool for those who style their hair more often! P.s I have nominated you for the Sunshine Blogger Award :)

  7. I completely agree with this! I actually picked up some candles as presents for my mom and stepmom, but I couldn't resist grabbing a Christmas candle for myself as well. My favorite Christmas song would probably have to be "Baby, It's Cold Outside" sang by Frank Sinatra. Email: emilynburkhead@gmail.com. Instagram: @nillacat.

  9. We definitely need to treat ourselves too! My favourite, gosh that's hard, can I pick the whole Christmas album by Michael Buble? Probably 'It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas'.

  16. I treat myself all the time, girl! XD During the Black Friday sale I got myself an early Christmas present - 3 beautiful Japanese brushes from Suqqu - and I'm sure I'll treat myself again and again before C-Day. I have no self control.
    As far as songs go, it's not Christmas without Micheal Buble, isn't it? I love his version of Let it snow so much! x

  24. TREAT YO SELF!! Yes Lisa, I love it and woo for a giveaway, you're so good! My favourite Christmas song is "Fairytale Of New York" - I may be biased as I'm Irish - but once I hear The Pogues & Kristy MacColl, I know it's really Christmas time!

  26. I totally agree with treating yourself! And I just bought myself an hourglass lipstick (the super expensive one that comes in a beautiful gold tube)! And my favourite Christmas song is honestly Mistletoe by Justin Bieber. I know, I'm embarrassed about it!
