When it comes to Christmas baubles this could be a beauty lovers perfect Christmas treat! How lovely to gift one (or three!) to a L’Occitane lover this year, it’s a festive treat and a bit of fun with the mini samples inside the bauble and although mini in size they are the ideal size for popping into an overnight bag over the festive season. It’s no secret in my family that I am a huge fan of L’Occitane and I have been sharing some of my new favourites for men and women this week, the L’Homme Cedrat Collection for men and the Arlésienne Collection are two gorgeous newest editions to the L’Occitane family.

After last month’s introduction to the fabulous Libbie Club Beauty Box (read my review post here) I was really looking forward to seeing what was in the October box and right away I can tell you I wasn’t disappointed. If you follow The Libbie Club on Twitter (@libbieclub ) then you will know that every month before the new box is launched you will get a sneaky-peek at the contents. If you want to get ahead of the game to see what will be in the November box just head over to their Twitter page as they have all the details of their next beauty box with a huge £46.00 value. Back to this month and the October Libbie Box is worth a huge £63.00 and it’s yours to sample and review for free if you follow some simple tasks.

Over the Summer the girls have been catching up on some of their favourite (unread!) novels and one of the anticipated novels for them both was this gem from Disney – A Whole New World A Twisted Tale, sent to us by Parragon Books. We have had some great books to review from Parragon Books including a Disney Descendants Novel which we loved.  A Whole New World : A Twisted Tale from Disney is aimed at an age range of 12-16 and 384 pages long, this epic novel tells the tale of an alternative journey for Aladdin. One which sees him never finding the lamp when instead Jafar manages to get his hands on the magic lamp and become all powerful. This is the first in a series of Twisted Tales from Disney (and Marvel) to give a fresh approach to some Disney favourites and ideal for tweens and young adults to enjoy.

Parragon Books have kindly sent this novel for us to read and give our thoughts as part of a Parragon Book Buddy panel they have put together and it was perfect timing during the Summer holiday as both my girls had a chance to read it. Lara our 10 year old has just turned the corner with her reading and has become so much more confident and proficient at reading and Siobhan our 16 year old just loves to read and gets through at least four books a week! Both girls found themselves really engrossed in the book and enjoyed it immensely, with it’s easy to read style and engaging text it’s a real page turner.

Over the last year I have been using products from the Time Bomb range with great success as they really suit my skin. I have written before about the Collagen Bomb Skin Fuel  which is perfect for plumping up the skin and really hydrating and more recently about Time Bomb’s Peel & Reveal  a marvel at creating a clean polished face – and so easily achieved. If you are a Time Bomb fan too then the exceptional offer from QVC on the 16th August will be right up your street. Time Bomb have put together the perfect TSV (Today’s Special Value) quad to keep your skin looking a-list this Summer and as two are supersized products expect them to last much longer than the regular sizes, plus the entire set costs £46.00! Yes that’s right a fantastic price for all four products (two are supersize) it’s a really great way to stock up on your favourites while only paying a fraction of the cost.
