Jocelyn’s Christmas Must-Have #2!

Sorry my last two Must-Have’s are so delayed…. I tell you, these 10 Days of Christmas Giveaways are keeping me awfully busy over here! I have two more items on my Must-Have’s list, and my #2 goes to one of my favorite holiday kits. I love Crabtree and Evelyn, and I absolutely adore this gift set (I have one to give away this Christmas myself!)…

Here’s another beautiful Christmas gift idea! Look how gorgeous this packaging is! A beautiful red box with golden decorations, topped with a red ribbon bow! Love it! (I love things that don’t need to be wrapped. Let’s be honest, that wrapping can get out of control!)

Introducing the perfectly scented Pomegranate, Argan and Grapeseed Little Luxuries set from Crabtree & Evelyn.

Tucked inside this festive red and gold embossed holiday print box are three vibrant Pomegranate, Argan & Grapeseed favourites that promise moments of indulgence for pretty hands and pampered skin. Our award-winning, shea butter-rich Hand Therapy leaves hands noticeably softer with each use, while our conditioning Bath & Shower Gel gently cleanses and our moisturising Body Lotion helps leave skin smooth, supple, and vibrantly scented.


Pomegranate, Argan & Grapeseed Bath & Shower Gel (50mL)
Pomegranate, Argan & Grapeseed Body Lotion (50mL)
Pomegranate, Argan & Grapeseed Ultra-Moisturising Hand Therapy (25g)
Fragrance: The tart sweetness of pomegranate coupled with a burst of citrus and fresh fig leaf.

Erin’s Christmas Must-Have Number 1!



What gift can be better than a great handbag? I have yet to meet a woman who isn’t always on the hunt for the next great bag. I am in love with the Emilie M handbag line, a great mixture of classic styles with contemporary colors. Any of these bags would make a great gift or give that special someone a gift card so they can choose their favorite.

I was given the chance to choose a bag to review and feel in love with the Shelly Frame Satchel. A beautiful black purse made of Spazzalatto patent leather. Spazzalato is known to be soft, maturing leather only available to the Monte Carlo crowd. Emilie M. bags feature all the same delicate contouring and soft touch without the price tag.

The large frame structure not only holds the bags shape but also makes it spacious inside. One main zipper closes the purse completely. I love how much it holds and the the versatility of the bag. It is only available as part of the Emilie M Fall and Winter line, so make sure you check it out for this holiday season!

Emilie M. Shelly Frame Satchel in Patent
The Shelly frame satchel is elegant enough for any evening event, yet functional enough for every day. Shiny spazzallato patent leather in unrelieved black or two-toned versions that pair taupe with black, olive or port accents make this bag an eye-catcher. Polished brass hardware, a contrasting striped interior lining and a zippered interior pocket make this bag both fully functional and exceptionally chic, while two phone slots allow you to convert from work mode to family mode at a moment’s notice. Stop letting your handbag drag you down, and opt for this sleek, sultry edition instead!

15.5″ x 7.5″ x 11.0″
Framed closure
Brushed gold hardware
Inside zip pocket and 2 cell phone pockets
Removable signature “M” medallion
Exclusive striped lining for Fall/Winter 2012
