  • By Carly Neave

Congratulations to Tanya White who is the winner of this gorgeous Christmas Hamper giveaway! There are a lot of names below who I know are really loyal and avid readers of my blog and I would have loved to (and will be working on!) giving as much back to you as I possibly can in 2019. For now though, thank you for all your insightful comments and wonderful support this year and I hope everyone has had an amazing day. Love to all and looking forward to what next year brings!

Happy Saturday guys and girls! More importantly, happy Christmas 3 day countdown! I hope everyone is now officially off the clock and enoying mince pies, bubbles and family time. I am heading up to Norfolk to celebrate an early “Neave” (Hubbie’s family) Xmas before coming back down to Surrey to spend it at home on the 24th. I know this hamper is going live a touch later than I would have liked but the best thing is that you only have to wait 3 days until I announce the winner!

I explained this in my Dubai Hamper Giveaway so apologies for anyone who’s seeing double, but I do just want you to know that the whole reason I have worked to put this incredibly special hamper together is purely to say a massive THANK YOU for everyone’s incredible support and kindness this year. I couldn’t do this without you and I hope I can continue to add value, in small or big ways, here and there, to people’s lives. So much of that is driven by the feedback and comments you give me on my daily content so please, please do continue to ask me for blogs you want to read and videos you want to see. Comment on my posts when you like them and let me know when you don’t! I really do listen and want to give you content you enjoy seeing! Anyway … to this epic hamper!

HOW TO ENTER:

1) Comment on this post below letting me know your favourite types of blogs to read! (In general, not limited to my content!)

2) Comment and tag a friend on the Instagram post related to this giveaway here.

Winner for this hamper will be announced on Christmas Day! 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.

Dr Roebuck’s Skincare

Created in Sydney by twin sisters, this beautiful skincare range is all about beauty from the inside-out using science to create natural, ethical and vegan products that get results.  Some key features of Dr Roebuck’s products;

  • Paraben, sulphate & gluten-free
  • Vegan and cruelty free *Our Tama Mask is our only non-vegan product as it contains Sustainably-Sourced Manuka Honey
  • No BPA, petrochemicals, fillers, synthetic fragrances or dyes used
  • Each formula is packed with a variety of clean, active ingredients and hand selected vitamins and antioxidants for maximum efficacy
  • Clinically tested

Included in the hamper is their skin brightening toner, the nourishing crème cleanser, collagen boosting serum, ultra-hydrating repair crème and the collagen boosting eye treatment worth £160!

Ruifier

Where do I start! I discovered the fine jewellery brand Ruifier early this year with the introduction of their “Nexus” collection and a unique gold necklace that I wear most days …. if you follow my stories you’ll be well accustomed with it! The jewellery is totally unique, offering a fun side to quality craftsmanship along with simply iconic and stunning pieces. All the stone and diamonds they use are also conflict-free. We have three stunning pieces of Ruifier jewellery for my Christmas hamper, with two stacking rings and infinity earrings from their Orbit collection.

“Feed me Vegan: For All Occasions” Signed Cookbook

You might think I’m biased because the beautiful author, Lucy Watson, of this book just happens to be my best friend (proud), but that doesn’t mean my opinion is at all skewed! I’ve seen many a vegan cookbook but Lucy’s “Feed Me Vegan: For All Occasions” is a step above the rest. Whereas her popular first book was almost an entry-level book for creating vegan recipes, the follow-up “For All Occasions” features recipes you’d be super proud and confident in serving at a dinner party to a table of vegans & non-vegans, knowing they’ll love every bite! The recipes are incredibly creative and delicious and show that vegan food is anything but boring and it also has added sections such as vegan beauty, meal planners and vegan pet food. The lentil & carrot nuggets and chipotle black bean & quinoa soup are some of my personal tried and tested favourites … healthy and delish!

Neom Organics

A Christmas Wish! We have one of Neom’s beautiful 3-wick candles inspired by Christmas with notes of mandarin, cinnamon and tonka bean. It’s festive heaven on a plate!

Neom Organics are 100% natural fragrances for the mind & body, made in Britain from ethically sourced and sustainable origins.

A few highlights on their products;

  • Only natural & organic ingredients
  • No petrochemical paraffin or mineral wax
  • No artificial perfume only pure essential oils
  • No harsh preservatives

Three Six Five 

From yearly diaries to notebooks and inspirational wall prints, Three Six Five is a vegan leather brand that has breathed life back into beautiful stationary and planners. The products are founded on the concept of making every day count and setting intentions for our life.  I feel inspired every time I open up my notebook and am so happy to be giving one of the 2019 diaries in this Christmas hamper! You will be receiving the black “Make Every Day Count” 2019 diary. 

REN Skin Care

If you head to my skincare story highlight on Instagram, you’ll see that these products are part of my everyday regime, with the “Ready Steady Glow Tonique” being my absolute skin hero product at the moment! I adore the REN skincare brand and it’s clean ethos, both with the ingredients they use and their approach to the planet. They have 100% recyclable packaging, refillable solutions and bottles with reclaimed ocean plastic. I am totally in love with these two items so can’t wait for someone to experience them! The gentle cleansing milk has such a velvety texture and leaves skin feeling soft as a baby’s bottom, as well as hydrated! And the tonique … well, you just wait!

Nails Inc 

This “Dreaming of the Disco” collection from Nails Inc gives me all the festive feels! There are 5 amazing polishes with a quick-dry Caviar Top Coat! I think we all deserve a little love and care over this time so I hope you enjoy this glitter-filled treat!

 

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.

Mental health is so important, and reading lots of blogs on how I can best support my team in what is definitely not an easy job is important to me. Merry Christmas 🎄 x

    I love all your food blogs. I think the way you video them is really creative and the end product is always something I can totally imagine tucking into. I have recently suffered with really bad skin so listening to all your blogs about skincare and I have now started to see improvements which is fabulous.

    Thanks for all the advice you give us all and knowledge.

    Kind regards

    I really enjoy seeing a range of posts. It’s nice to see the healthy food, workout and product posts however I think it’s really lovely to see posts about you, your friendship, your family and how you go about life with such a positive attitude. It’s refreshing to see and I think the range of posts you do keeps me and I’m sure a lot of people engage, the variety is excellent! If there is one thing I’d like to see more of it would be vegan recipes or more vegan / environmental content. Things that we can do to improve the environment etc.. finally I just wanted to say thank you for continueing to inspire and motivate and for being a positive role model on a platform that can often be negative! So thank you. Have a lovely Christmas with your family x

    Hi Carly,

    Merry Christmas & New Year!

    I truly love following your content. I came across you, I think about the time you got married.. I’m always compelled to read your blog posts on your lifestyle choices, and also your ongoing battles. I like that whilst you talk about a healthy balanced lifestyle you also, are very real about having treats, enabling people not to feel guilty for those sometimes indulgent treats that are needed to enjoy life. I messaged you a while ago to thank you for showing your downsides as well as your upsides, it’s moments like that have helped me feel not so isolated. Social media previously, with everything being insta perfect has really made me struggle with wanting my photo taken most notably those photos being tagged or put on social media because of the ridiculousness of not being able to look straight at a camera., I see an image that isn’t “insta-perfect visibly, and you’re a very beautiful soul prepared to say that whilst you live the life you live, it’s not always rose petals and champagne. It’s helped inspire me to start my own busienss and pursue my dreams, as well as given me more confidence to slowly starting posting about my eyesight, and my life. (This is vey slow progress though)

    I am a total foodie and like all posts around food, obviously London recommendations welcomed! The skincare regimes you’ve also been posting about lately have also been recommended, if you could do one whilst your in the UK, to see how your skin copes with the cold, that would be really great. I always struggle through this season.

    Love
    Tanya
    :)

    Merry Christmas Carly! Thank you so much for your blog posts. They brighten my day. I used to live in Dubai so I can really relate to your life there and I admire your determination to maintain a healthy lifestyle out there as it’s not always easy in Dubai with so much temptation to drink so much and spend time in the sun and not as many options for eating vegan. I love your posts about restaurants and cosmetics as they are really useful and I trust your advice. Keep up the amazing work. Please follow me on Instagram too @peasonearth_x

    Hi

    When you follow lots of ‘bloggers’, it’s easy to get bored so I like blogs that are relatable, achievable and realistic. Both from a practica and financial point of view. Not everybody has £1000 to spend on a bag or all day to excercise.

    Also blogs that lift you and not make you feel you’re missing out on life.
