Take a Look inside the “House of Jo Malone London”

Its the last few days before Christmas, are you still struggling with the last few people for presents? The rush in the city centre is crazy, and yet so festive and vibrant and bright. It has to be my favourite time of year. Everything is so colourful and pretty.

I had to share a gift given to me by a special friend, as when I received it- it brought the biggest smile ever to my face. And made me think if anyone else received it they would feel the same way.

It’s a perfect gift for someone in their own home, who likes scents and smells. (Like me)

It is called the “House of Jo Malone London”, because well look at the packaging. It’s the illustrated image of the Jo Malone Head office in London. In the contemporary Jo Malone colours of rich cream and black. It’s an absolute beauty to look at. So chic and so London!!

I’m sure I’ve said this before, but I’ll say it again. Jo Malone packaging always exerts beauty and quality. Just the box screams Grandiosity.

As you enter the house by the 2 flaps you are given the below

A Sweet Welcome message on both sides,

and these products inside,

Two beautiful Scent Surronds, one is a Linen Spray and the other a Room Spray in English Pear and Freesia.

A hydrating hand and body gel, which is in my favourite scent of Peony (pronounced Pee-Nee- not Pe-O-NY! as advised by the sales assitant in Jo Malone!) and Blush Suede. I have the candle in this fragrance and now I can smell of this too!

And two travel size candles, in ‘Lime, Basil and Mandarin’ and ‘Pomegranate Noir’

All sitting inside a velvet backed box in a deep blue colur.

Isnt it a beauty?

Found in the Jo Malone London stores, or High street department stores like John Lewis, and Selfridges. Links Below:




A Huge Thank You to my special friend . I now have a Jo Malone scented house for the upcoming winter months.

At a price of £115, this is a beautiful gift to give someone special at this time of year, if anything like me, the smile will stay on their face for months to come, and this is yet another person ticked off from the Christmas list.

Love and Regards

Secret Santa Gifts £10 and Under

‘Tis the season to be jolly… Fa la la la lah, la la la la.” Also tis the season for secret santa! (Is that to many la’s in fa la la la lah, la la la la? Above?)

Office, retail, workshop, wherever you work, Christmas is the best time to work (if you haven’t got annual leave that is)

The festive spirit is everywhere. I don’t even celebrate Christmas but it’s the best time of the year to be at work. The mood is much different, don’t you think?

We do a secret santa every year at the office, and I get excited about it before it even reaches December.

Here’s a few under £10 gift ideas for every personality in the office :

The Tea Drinker

A personalised mug, maybe with their own name, a message or a picture. Starting at £5 this will be a proper treat for the tea drinker. Also you know they won’t be taking your mug anymore! Find some great ones here www.personalisedgiftshop.co.uk

The Boss

Being a fan of all things personalised I would have to go for a personalised pen. Once again www.personalisedgiftshop.co.uk has some great pens with cases personalised. And you can find them from as little as £8.99.

Mr Muscles

These chocolate dumbells from www.notonthehighstreet.co.uk are just the cutest. Everyone needs a little treat – especially in Christmas. At £8.00, Mr Muscle will be flexing those biceps – (Maybe after Christmas.)

The Office Pervert

Isn’t Secret Santa just made for this person? The options are endless, and funny. Depending on how much you want to insult the person… Choose wisely, it could end up terribly wrong.

Here’s a few ideas

The F*You mug, at £7.99 from www.buyagift.co.uk

The Ultimate Quickie Bell. £3.99 from www.buyagift.co.uk

There’s more far worse (but better ) gifts for a perv. But I really can’t put them on here. Dying of embarrassment. And my brother reads these blogs. So…. Staying….Away….. Do google away though.

The Cold One

There’s always one who’s always cold, even at 50 degrees, they can feel the air (oooops. That’s me). So here’s what the cold one (aka me) would love.

Found at www.fragrancedirect.co.uk for £7.99

The Geek

Me again. Hehe. Depending on what kind of geek they are…. There’s a bookmark for them all.
