Moi-Meme Winter Wellness Box 

This box is so luxe- and will with things to give you a boost during the rotten cold winter months. 

I love that each box is personalised and that the team at Moi-Meme do the same with the contents. 

There are five lovely things in the box and I can’t pick a favourite. 

Lola’s Apothecary Bath & Shower Oil (RRP £34 100ml) – this oil (Delicate Romance) contains rose, sweet orange, lemon, geranium, as well as several other skin loving ingredients. You only need a teaspoon for a bath or shower, so this will last a while. Based in Devon, the products are hand blended in small batches for the best quality. This smells delicious and soon so will I.  

Potion London The Beauty Formula (RRP £25 60 tablets – 1 a day) – with 19 vitamins and minerals these skin, hair and nail supplement tablets are developed to promote clear skin, strong nails and silky hair. Stocked in Harvey Nichols exclusively (and online), it’s only been around since July last year. It would be really great to see if these help my brittle, peeling nails. 

Pia Rossini Monroe Faux Fur Snood (RRP £30, available in 7 colours) – lined with soft fleece, this ridiculously stroke-able snood is warm and cosy. There are matching accessories available online. I am wearing this in my living room – the boiler’s broken and can guarantee it’s warmth. Based in Northern Ireland, the husband and wife team cover all seasons with everything from faux fur to beachwear. 

Portico Designs A6 Monogram Notebook (RRP  £8) – this stationery brand produce gorgeous products for brands including Wedgwood, Monsoon and Roald Dahl, as well as their own designs – like these gorgeous notebooks, which come in a range of colours. A 25 year old, Bath based company, their lovely things make brilliant presents. As someone who is always scribbling things down, this arrived at a perfect time.  

Coco Chocolatier Organic Chocolate Bar (RRP  £4.50 for 80g) – Caramel, Hazelnut and Isle of Skye sea salt milk chocolate – an artisan chocolate bar from Edinburgh with really lovely packaging, combining some of my favourite things – sorry I don’t share!

You know where I am, wearing my snood and eating chocolate.

Lush – a treat for the senses

Popped into my nearest Lush before dinner with the boyfriend (GBK – yum!) and picked up a few bits.


I was completely out of my favourite moisturiser – Celestial, and am using my last shower gel from the stash (Glogg which smells like Christmas) so I got a few  bottles, two of the new scents. Yuzu and Cocoa smells like chocolate oranges and is bright, citrus yellow. The Comforter (pink) reminds me of Snow Fairy but less bubblegum.  Shampoo I Love Juicy is another staple product for me.
Then I picked up the super Sun Block – the perfect product for a lazy person who needs a lot of sun protection.
Finally I sniffed a solid conditioner bar – The Plumps (another bright pick purchase) which promises to reduce my flyaway hairs while giving bouncy, healthy hair.
I always come away from Lush with a smile – the staff are lovely. For some reason my card and the chip & pin machine were disagreeing and the manager patiently sorted it out for me. Then he gave me a free pot of BB Seaweed fresh face mask for the hassle, which was totally unexpected and really sweet. Go team Lush Brent Cross!
