As I have numerous family, friends and Godchildren, I have already started my Christmas shopping. I do not want to be one those people who has to run around panicking, buying what ever gifts are left in the shops on Christmas Eve. In my search for unique presents I came across Hippie Chic while looking online. They sell clothes, jewellery and accessories.
Hippie Chic gets their inspiration for the items they make from the world that we live in. This could be fashion, nature, art or life. They strive to give you something that you have not seen before, something very special. When I was looking through the all the products that they had online I came across a Lily Stone watch which had a tan leather strap that I thought would be the perfect gift for a friend. The watches face told the time using Roman numerals and was gold in colour, I instantly fell in love with it. At only 35 pounds it was a steal.
I also spotted a Boho watch and bracelet set that I know my Mother would love and was an equally good price at 22 pounds. If your family and friends are not watch people (I know a few people who are sick of people asking them the time) then you should check out their selection of earrings. When you have looked at the Braye-metallic half moon tribal earrings, the Chari-matte gold plated arrowhead pendant earrings or the Cuanza- blue and matte gold beaded diamond earrings, I am sure that you will end up getting a few Christmas presents out of the way like I did or even end up treating yourself.

Fountain of Youth: Restoring, Repairing and Rejuvenating.
FOY rejuvenating Night Cream, Moisturising Day Cream and Eye Contour Gel and Anti Cellulite Gel. Four beautifully packaged products, great consistency.
Moisturising Day Cream
FOY is designed for mature aging skin, basically anyone over the age of 25 but for me the day cream was not rich enough. My skin absorbs quickly and I felt that I needed to keep reapplying in order for my skin to feel fully moisturized.
Rejuvenating Night Cream
I liked the rejuvenating night cream as it was richer and left my skin feeling great all night long.
I decided to give the gel to a friend who has cellulite to test out and see if it made any difference on her skin. She tried it for a few weeks and said the smell was great, the texture was amazing. When applied the gel created a tingling sensation. No visible improvement was noticed after two weeks of usage. Everyone’s skin reacts differently so this does not mean the product did not work but maybeon her skin type it needed to be used for a little longer to see any results.
Eye Contour Gel
My FOY top pick has to be the Eye Contour Gel. As a sufferer of dark, itchy, tired eyes I am always looking for the perfect gels to moisturise the eye area and this was perfect! Out of all the products this is the one I would definitely invest in.
