Whattup, blogosphere!? ❤️
Today’s post is a little late in the game, but whatever! 😫
How was your Christmas!?
Hope it was awesome, even if forcibly a little different to ones we’re used to!
🚨 If you spent it alone to protect your loved ones from Covid-19, you’re a superhero and deserve every gift forevermore! 🚨
Mine? A recurring sport injury is back which meant I was ‘hoppin’ 🐰 around the Christmas tree 🎄 as opposed to ‘rockin’… But, I was grateful to spend it with my household – who still managed to make it special nonetheless.
Oh, and as far as presents go, while everyone seemed to either be getting pregnant, engaged or receiving Michael Kors gifts, I bought myself a Ninja Foodi Grill and a Christmas hamper from Etsy (store: PixieParlourHealing).
I had myself a little self-love Christmas, y’all! ✌️
The Christmas hamper I ordered was a limited edition, so unfortunately it isn’t in stock right now.
The purpose of this post I guess is to distract myself from the aches and pains by sharing details of its contents with you (in case it’s something you’d like to get yourself or someone special next year)!
What is included in the hamper?
- A mulled wine bathbomb (pictured)
- A mulled wine candle (pictured)
- A handmade bauble filled with dried flowers, mini healing crystals & gold leaf
- One sachet of Twinings’ Turmeric, Orange & Star Anise tea
- A candy cane
- Mystery healing crystal
Let’s start with the little things, because: it’s all about the finer things in life.
Candycane: Minty, as expected. Extremely Christmassy. A ‘sweet’ touch.
Tea: this is now my favourite flavour tea. Just yum.
Mystery crystal: Very intuitive. I received an ‘apatite’ crystal at a time when I’ve been suffering from inflammation in the knee.
Bauble: looked rustic and handmade, which I loved. Very unique. It was filled with tiny crystals, dry petals and gold leaf – simply stunning.
Okay, now for the pieces de resistances (plural)…
Mulled wine bathbomb: usually I’d never cheat on Lush, but, dare I say that this was better.
It felt as if I was bathing in Santa’s house! 😂🎅
Another thing, there were bits of gold leaf floating around with me, so I fully felt those Beyoncé vibes! I. Stan. A. Queen! 👑
Mulled wine candle: of course I lit the matching candle that came with it [which smelled like a glass mulled wine with edible flower petals mixed in] while bathing, and – to put it simply, perfection.
My verdict on the Christmas hamper
My “Christmas bath with candle trimmings” left me relaxed AF! It led to the best sleep I’ve had in while…
All in all, a 5* hamper, I’d definitely buy again (when available).
In the meantime though, I’ll be checking out other hampers on the PixieParlourHealing Etsy store.
