My Christmas Luxe List
Since you asked (nobody asked) thought I would casually run you down the ultimate money-is-no-object Luxe list of Christmas joy.
I will not be receiving any of these tomorrow as have only just made this list but hey who knows, might be receiving them from myself at some point in the near future. If I’m a very good girl.
THE LIGHT SALON AT HERSHESON’S LUXURY LIFT, LIGHT AND GLOW FACIAL, £125
In palatial dreamscape Hershesons on Berners Street, because nothing bad can ever happen in that place (I know, I’ve pressed my nose against the glass many many times).
In Veruca Salt voice: I’d like the above then to follow up 4 x Expressed Skin Health & Rejuvenation Yellow LED facials over a two month period, at £35 for 20 minutes each. Failing that, I’d like a cut and finish with Luke Hersheson with a blow dry and even I, Veruca Salt, am ashamed to say how much that costs*
Essentially, right, I just want to step inside Hershesons.
*t’s £350 for the cut so I’ll go for the second most expensive blow dry at £30. I’m not a monster.
BEAUTY PIE MEMBERSHIP, £5/£10/£20 per month (I want £20 thanks)
Claire had to sit me down and really patiently explain Beauty Pie, and I’m pretty sure she used the same voice she uses with difficult patrons on the phone at work. I just. Did not. Get it. How I miss those days of ignorance because now I waaaaaant it so muuuucccchh (and definitely will get it next year but all in the name of research. In fact I literally just went & bought it so suppose review is coming soon).
HERBIVORE EMERALD OIL, $48 (CURRENTLY U.S. ONLY) AND PINK CLOUD ROSEWATER MOISTURISING CREAM, £42
I could lose an afternoon in Space NK at the Herbivore concession alone, and I have done and it was last week. The pastel shades of the products alone are coo-worthy, but they’re also vegan and cruelty free and have bloody good textures all. This Emerald city potion contains cannabis and if CBD oil is anything to go by that’ll be one relaxed face you have there.
SISLEY SUPREMŸA EYES AT NIGHT, £185
Extortion pure and simple but it’s my fake Christmas and this works. It just works.
CHARLOTTE TILBURY PALETTE IN EXAGGEREYES, £39
A last minute addition as was just trying it out in Jarrolds of Norwich and can confirm it’s beautiful and looks GREAT on me there I said it.
FRÉDÉRIC MAHAL PORTRAIT OF A LADY, £235 FOR 100ML
Read Claire’s review. All you need to know is right there.
THE EXTENSIONIST HAIR EXTENSIONS, POA
(Rebecca is Andrew Lincoln in that creepy scene in Love Actually where he’s at Kiera Knightly - HIS BEST FRIEND’S WIFE -’s door)
“Holds up placards* Just because it’s Christmas -
*Holds up another* And at Christmas, you tell the truth -
*Holds up a third* I can never have enough hair.
(Fifth Harmony’s ‘Worth it’ plays, Rebecca drops placards and struts off)
