Congratulations to Anastazja – @anastazjajulia – who is the winner of this beautiful hamper and a name I recognize as always being active and supportive on my pages. Given this hamper was a thank you to everyone for being exactly that, it felt right to handpick a winner rather than let a computer randomly select. Thank you so much to everyone for your entries and comments. I wish I could give a hamper to each and every person but I will continue to give back as much as I possibly can to this community. I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Hola strangers! I’m back with my brand-new website and so excited for everything that is going to be coming up on the blog! Think beautiful destinations, skincare heaven and plenty of wellness-related inspiration! Make sure you’re signed up to my newsletter for instant blog-post updates :) (P.s you might notice I still have a few tweaks to do on the site here and there, but I didn’t want to delay getting this Christmas giveaway up any longer).
In the mean-time, I wanted to kick-start everything with a huge thank you to everyone that has supported me this year and previous. Every message, comment, like, that you leave across my pages is the only reason why I do what I do, and can continue to do so, so from the bottom of my heart … thank you.
Along with that thank you, comes two EPIC Christmas hampers that I would absolutely love to gift to two people this year! They are honestly incredible, filled with presents from some of the most amazing brands that I utterly love. I am spending the holidays this year in two cities; Dubai and London, so I am incredibly sorry to anyone outside of these places but due to requests from the brands that have kindly gifted the presents, these are the two places where the giveaway is open to.
The following hamper is the Dubai-based giveaway. London to follow in the next few days!!
HOW TO ENTER:
1) Comment on this post below letting me know your favourite thing about Christmas!
2) Comment and tag a friend on the Instagram post related to this giveaway here.
Winner for the Dubai hamper will be announced next Thursday 20th December. Wishing everyone the best of luck and I hope that whoever this goes to, it makes your Christmas that little bit more special.
All my love.

It’s very rare to meet anyone who doesn’t know the brand Neom. It’s always one of my personal favourite gifts to receive as the smell of their candles fills rooms with the most seductive of scents! They are 100% natural fragrances for the mind & body, made in Britain from ethically sourced and sustainable origins.
A few highlights on their products;
In the hamper, we have one of their beautiful sets of the “Precious Moment Home Collection” containing the home mist and the vetivert, black pepper & ginger organic candle. You can visit Neom’s website here.
Founded upon inspiring women to be creative in their own expression, Pandora’s jewellery showcases some of the most creative and beautiful craftsmanship. I wear so many of their pieces day-to-day and super excited to be able to include two of their 2018 pieces which are modern but have the touch of glam (perfect for Christmas!).
In the hamper we have the sterling silver moments open bangle and the beautiful spinning necklace. You can visit Pandora’s website here.
Launched by two of the most beautiful and fashionable sisters, CocoBum is possibly the nicest resort and swimwear boutique in Dubai. Their showroom itself is (for lack of a better phrase), #Instagramgoals! and they’ve also launched their website which you can check out here. The girls source quality products from designers all over the world and as a result, each and every piece is super unique and beautifully put together. Make sure you have a look at their jewellery too.
In the hamper, we have an AED 500 e-voucher so that you can shop to your own style!
Not really a brand that needs much explaining…! I did a campaign with CK this year on the release of their brand new activewear which is actually one of the best and comfiest I’ve worn. Whilst it’s not the active wear in the hamper, we do have one of my most-worn sets from them; the modern cotton underwear set as well as a palm-print low back swimsuit. Both are size medium but these can be changed should you need! You can visit Calvin Klein’s website here.
Erborian Skin Care
A skin-care brand that uses the most sophisticated Korean technologies with high-quality ingredients derived from herbs found in traditional Korean medicine. They have an incredible selection of hybrid products that sit between skincare and beauty and these are the items included in the hamper!
BB crème – Enriched with SPF 20, BB crème au Ginseng transforms your skin to a velvety, ultra-soft, spotless finish. Giving all the benefits of restorative skincare, with the appearance of lightweight, perfecting makeup.
CC crème Dorè – Enriched with SPF 25, CC crème Dorè is a multi-purpose formula. This “High Definition” illuminator, with its ultra-fine texture, contains pigments to enhance your skin’s appearance while enriching and improving its texture and quality. You can shop Erborian via Sephora here.
Marks and Spencer
A brand very close to my heart! I am utterly obsessed with the food that M&S create, it’s second to none in its field and I had the best time talking at their Dubai Christmas event this year! They have stores all over Dubai, with their most recent opening in the Springs Souk (jackpot for me as it’s just around the corner from home!). There is a AED 500 gift card in the hamper for you to spend on any of their products, be it food, clothes or home! Options are endless…
You can shop the M&S website here.
These are the speakers J and I have at home. They’re big and bold, wireless and totally waterproof and drop proof. Their latest addition; MEGABOOM 3, is the epic portable speaker that is in this Christmas hamper for you! Each speaker has carefully balanced audio and 360-degree sound that lets users hear every note just as the artist intended. MEGABOOM 3 also provides deeper bass and improved clarity over the original MEGABOOM. This really is such a treat!
If you don’t happen to be the winner of this incredible hamper on this occasion, then for your reference, they’re available exclusively at Souq.com and Virgin Megastores in Dubai. Visit the UE website here.
Rounding up this incredible Christmas hamper giveaway with something YUM! A home-grown brand, protein bakeshop is about living healthier and still being able to enjoy the sweet treats, but doing so guilt-free!
They replace refined sugars with natural sugars and increase the amount of good fats and protein in the products to improve the overall nutritional profile of desserts. We’ve included one of each and every flavor of the Protein Bakeshop’s products in the hamper! Check out the Protein Bakeshop website here.
Get commenting and best of luck everyone!!! I hope you all have the most incredible and laughter-filled Christmas. I can’t wait for what 2019 has in store and once again, a huge thank you to every single reader and follower of my pages.
