It is officially December, so for all the bah-humbugs who will not utter the word “Christmas” until December 1st, you now have no choice but to think about the big man in the red suit. I can now finally breath a sigh of relief and mumble away about presents without fear of being told it’s too early! I am one of those weirdos who starts their Christmas shopping early. Yes, really early, no I won’t dare mention what month I start. I just love the Christmas vibe, but even more I love buying presents for other people! I think every year the retail vibe is totally different. One year I struggle to find presents for my husband, the next year I can’t find anything for mum but this year I found it so easy to buy for friends! So here is my 2017 Christmas Gift Guide for that young, 20 something who has it all already!
The BPerfect LMD Master Palette
The only way you haven’t heard about this palette is if you have been living under a rock for the past two months. Bloggers across N Ireland have been raving about it and it sold out pretty much everywhere right away but thankfully it is back in stock! I was lucky enough to pick it up in Gordons Chemist for a gift but the BPerfect website also now has it back in stock. With 15 matte and shimmer shades, bloggers have been raving that this is the only palette you will need to create your look. The highly pigmented eye shadows can be used as face powders and the shimmers can be used as a highlight. I have heard that Santa may have one of his way for me so I will let you know what I think on Christmas morning!

Tower Jewellers ft Terrie McEvoy
One of my favourite Irish bloggers has launched a collaborative jewellery range with her favourite jewellers Tower Jewellers. I really can’t explain my excitement when Terrie announced her collaboration on Snap Chat last week. Terrie is ultimate body & life goals but while I creep on her snap chats and goggle at her Instagram I am always checking out her jewellery. It is so obvious that Terrie had a massive part to play in designing the range, from the ECG sign on a necklace (Terrie is a nurse) to a triangle representing her (hilarious!) boyfriend, family and friends each piece is simply beautiful and a perfect present anyone would love to receive!

The Pippa Planner
I love being organised, even more so when I have a beautiful organiser to sort my life out with. What 25 year old doesn’t? The Pippa Planner‘s look perfect for sorting anyone’s life out with! The undated planner is handy as it can be bought at any time of the year, to begin at anytime of the year. With monthly quotes and tips it is meant to be the perfect inspiration for getting stuff done plus the beautiful designs make it a beautiful accessory.
Pippa: Simple tips to live beautifully
Yes, ok this is another one from Pippa but totally different to the above. I love a good read but wouldn’t be totally into “learning books.” I couldn’t believe how wrong my preconceptions were about Pippa’s read when a friend leant it to me recently. So much so that I had to go out and buy my own to keep! From beauty to life tips, home interiors to fashion this read covers all the areas a 20 something female is thinking of!

Sophie Elizabeth London
I first came across Sophie Elizabeth London phone cases after seeing N.I. blogger Tiffany Brien post about them. The phone cases are beautiful, statement pieces which will easily jazz up any twenty something’s phone.
