Christmas at John Lewis

As you probably already know, I love a good event. So I was pretty excited to get invited to the John Lewis Christmas recently in Birmingham. Not only did I get to see some of my lovely blogger friends, I also got to get a real taste for what John Lewis has to offer this Christmas.

The first thing we were shown were the new Twinkly lights, and I am obsessed. They are essentially Christmas lights on a string that you would typically put on your Christmas tree. But these lights are different. These lights can be connected to an app on your phone! As you can imagine, us bloggers were pretty excited about this! These lights can be configured completely on your phone. You can choose what colours go where, their speed and what time you want the lights on and off. Pretty exciting stuff! They showed us a couple of settings that they had made earlier and some pre-set settings, I personally really liked the rainbow setting! 

Next up was the Christmas food selection! Your greedy little g bear was very content with this selection. If you're a keen carb and Prosecco enthusiast, you will love the Prosecco Panetonne! The most delicious bread cake with that little taste of Prosecco. I was also VERY sold on the Prestat Popping Pink Prosecco White Chocolate Truffles, the most beautiful little things! And of course, for all our blogger dreams, the Unicorn Tears Gin was brought out! Definitely a lovely idea for your gin lover. 

And of course, my favourite, was the beauty corner! There were a couple of things that caught my eye, the Molton Brown Advent Calendar for one and the Men Rock Beard Care Set another. But it was the Marc Jacobs Christmas selection that really stole the show. The Sex Kitten Christmas Cracker is only £13, which includes a mascara and lipstick, an excellent present for your beauty lover if you're on a budget. The Cats Meow set includes five beautiful Marc Jacobs lipsticks for £37. Or if you're feeling very generous, the On The Prowl set at £99 includes a lipstick, mascara, eyeliner, brow pencil and an eyeshadow palette! 

My favourite part of Christmas is the decorations, and John Lewis do not hold back. The Christmas ornaments are so beautiful, I especially love the little glass reindeers. And of course the tree decorations are always a treat to the eye. When I'm earning the big bucks, my tree will definitely be covered in John Lewis. I was particularly drawn to the Maharaja selection, the colours are really vibrant and beautiful. You can buy baubles separately or in sets. It's definitely worth heading to the Christmas floor just to see how beautiful the selection is.

And that brings me to the end of this post.  Obviously there are hundreds of other Christmas goodies that you can fall in love with at John Lewis, but I have covered a few of the highlights for me this year. Hopefully this helps you a little with your Christmas shopping this year! I know it has definitely gotten me in the Christmas spirit! 

Thank you for reading! Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? Are you excited for Christmas?
