Firstly, I’m jealous.
Of who/what? (I hear you say 😉 )
ANYONE WHO HAS ALREADY DONE THEIR bloody (yes, bloody) CHRISTMAS SHOPPING – that’s who!
Me: I’m such a last-minute girl, always have been. Every.Single.Year – it drives me crazy.
Yes. I always have ideas floating around my head, but they’re never set in stone.
Instead they are mixed up with all the other crap that is whirling around my noggin on a daily basis – which means I end up forgetting half of them…
Because I don’t write them down.
The worst part? All of these lost and forgotten ideas always come rushing back to me on Christmas morning…along with the one crucial dinner ingredient, that I desperately needed to buy, but forgot on Christmas Eve!
Story of my life.
So, for anyone that is flat-out of ideas and would like a bit of ‘Bev’ inspo – this post is just for YOU…
Now it’s a mixed bag – both in terms of items and price points.
Although, I would be super happy to find any of the below, waiting for me under the tree.
Biggest tip: if you’re unsure give a gift voucher or give the person the receipt!
My favourites vouchers:
SOAP AND GLORY
The Righteous Butter $19.00 for 300ml (Mecca)
I used this in the UK for years before if came available in Australia (thank goodness for Mecca). It works like magic on dry skin – you will feel nourished from the first try.
And the price is incredible.
Flake Away $14.00 for 300ml (Mecca)
The Righteous Butter and Flake Away come as a pair for me. I love the feeling of silky smooth polished skin. They both smell completely divine. And would you look at the price? AGAIN.
You are welcome my friends!
Loving Tan Tanning Mouse $39.95 (Adore Beauty) also available at David Jones.
Beckie got me on to this tan, and I have never looked back. The colour is really natural (there are lighter shades, but I prefer the Ultra Dark). This makes a great stocking filler, for an ‘fake’ tan enthusiast.
A great stocking filler
Now you already know I’m super sentimental. I love my jewellery. Especially pieces that have a big chunk of LOVE attached to them.
I already have several pieces from Uber Kate – I adore the cocktail rings. I now have two: Larimer it was the soft blue tones that originally drew me in (known to cool tempers, calms fears, relieves stress and nurtures the physical and emotional bodies). I loved the stone so much, Beckie also gave me the matching Larimer earrings for Mothers Day.
I now have the new release Sea Marine Cocktail Ring* $195.00 how amazing is the colour – as you can see I love wearing mine together.
Beckie also gave me my first Uber Circle (Large) on my 50th Birthday – it’s a piece that I totally treasure.
Last (but certainly not least) is my Love Lines (these are unisex) which I have engraved with Iris May Style after my wonderful Mumma.
Above I’m wearing the White Summer Tassel Scarf $50.00 and it goes with absolutely everything and its 100% cotton!
These gorgeous Melbourne girls truly melt my heart you know. They are not only super talented, but also two of the most kindest humans on the planet.
I recently received this gorgeous Turquoise Howlite Necklace (with original Australian penny in the year of my Dad’s birth) in my P O Box. It’s a piece I will treasure for ever.
Because I loved it so much, I asked the girls if they could make it for you too:
N005 Adele Natural Howlite with Penny Pendant $240 add code IRISMAY at checkout for 10% off
Daydream Hip Bag in Chestnut $199.00
The colour and size make this the perfect bag for everyday use, casual or smart this bag always adds a luxurious yet stylish edge to any look.

Oral B 9000 Genius Series Rose Gold Toothbrush RRP $349 Chemist Warehouse $189.99
I have trialled this electric toothbrush – it is fancy to the max (and I think the perfect Christmas present)…I am however a sucker for anything rose gold, but it seriously does deliver the goods.
It connects to an Oral B app on your phone via wifi to make sure you brush your teeth correctly, the way a dentist would like. Intuitive sensors offer 100% more plaque removal, along with Smartring Pressure Technology to look after your sensitive gums.
There are five different settings (even one to clean your tongue) – the charge last for 12 days and comes with dual charging travel case to charge both your phone and toothbrush.
A Wednesday post would not be complete without a bit of fashion thrown in.
Bohemian Traders have just launched a Spend and Save today – there are plenty of stunning Christmas day dresses (I think I’ll be wearing this one) and of course a spend and Save is the best time to get the White Blazer and Linen Drop Crotch Pants
So if you have lusted after anything, now is the time to shop, kind of like a Christmas present from Me to Me 😉
