Sometimes in life you meet someone who is absurd in all the same ways as you and who laughs at all the same things as you. And they also listen to your bitchin’ through all the bad seasons of your life more than anyone else. And yet, they still want to laugh and do absurd things with you.
Natalie is one of those people for me. She’s probably that for you to. It’s because that’s who she is. And she deserves to be celebrated every effing day. She’s hilarious and wise and empathetic and wonderful. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I miss you so freaking much. Wish I was cheersin a nice b day beer to you rn. I love you forever. Forevah evah.

Jo Malone ❄️ Christmas Gifts 🇬🇧
From the Jo Malone 2017 Christmas Collection my personal favourite are:
Firstly, the cologne is an utterly mouthwater concoction called ‘Green Almond & Redcurrant‘ (100ml, £92, limited edition). A gourmand cologne with a bit of a bite, the sweet notes come from tonka bean and green almond, and the sharp notes from redcurrant and cedarwood. It’s definitely not too cloying, which is what’s so nice about it and it’s not a predictable Christmas scent either. It also comes with a matching candle (£120).
What do you think of the sugared almond pink and white bottle? And the striped candle? So different, right? Some people might be a little disappointed but I actually think most people will love it. So much fun!
Onto the other fabulously packaged Jo Malone Christmas gifts. The advent calendars are a big deal of course and this year they’re multi coloured. The giant advent calendar is exclusive to Harrods(£300) and the smaller House of Jo Malone London will be available at Selfridges(£136).
The miniature soaps are a big highlight. Are they meant to be macarons or chocolates? I thought chocolates as we always go mad for Charbonnel & Walker ginger thins. Anyway, there are three different scented soaps in here if anyone is mad enough to actually use them (Lime, Basil & Mandarin, Red Roses, English Pear & Fresia, £36).
And of course there are the standard crackerswhich again have been reinvented in Japanese-inspired graphics. These sell out pretty fast though so don’t leave it to the last minute. (I don’t like hyping things up but hey, just sayin’.)
