Every year I look forward to the Christmas Beauty gift sets hitting the shelves and flicking through the Boots Christmas catalogue to find the perfect presents for my friends and family. Benefit offer a broad range of limited-edition gifts at different price points featuring your Benefit favourites to stock up on. Currently available are cute tin's featuring four of their bestselling products, skincare and lipgloss sets and travel minis offering great value for money.  Benefit's packaging is gorgeous! the make-up is great quality and the sets even come with handy tips on how to create the perfect Christmas make-up look.
Groovy Kind-A Love £29.50 has to be my favourite set from this year's collection which includes, the POREfessional mini, they're real mini, benetint medium, dandelion & gimme fever cheek powder duo with brush and limited edition eyeshadow palette with double-ended sponge applicator, which together can create a complete kit for eyes, lips, cheeks & face. You can instantly transform your look from am to pm, as it's great as a travel set for people who are always on-the-go.
They're real has to be one of my favourite mascara's that I've used in a long time, it really does lengthen the lashes and separates them fully. The eyeshadow palette is really pigmented and would make a lovely smokey neutral look for the Christmas parties! and the cheek duo is great for illuminating your high points. The only thing missing in this kit is a good base for flawless skin! I think any beauty lover would be happy to receive this for Christmas and even someone who hasn't tried Benefit cosmetics before, as it's a great starter set to try a range of different products from the brand.
What are your Christmas gift recommendations?

Winter is coming, the layers are getting thicker. Keeping warm and cosy is essential but keeping your style fashionable without getting frumpy is even more important. Who said Converse are a Summer shoe? Converse have a range of weatherised trainers which have a faux-fur lining meaning you can wear them in any weather without worrying about getting cold feet. These Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Warm High-Top Trainers in Burgundy £65* are suede and so easy to update any outfit for the new season. They are the perfect shade for Autumn/Winter. John Lewis have a great range of Converse to choose from. I've styled them with a big cosy Jacquard-weave scarf £12.99 from H&M in a soft fabric and fun print. This scarf is so big it can double up as a blanket! I then paired them with a staple black bag from Primark £8, so handy with a long strap to hang off your shoulder and two compartments (I also had to buy this in grey). They are super cute and so affordable! 
What do you style your converse with?
