If you're a regular reader around here, you'll know what a fan I am of Estee Lauder as a brand. The Advanced Night Repair Complex, Global Anti Aging Eye Balm and of course the Double Wear Concealer are some of my all time favourites when it comes to both make up and skincare, and so when I saw the free gift with purchase currently available at John Lewis, I jumped at the chance to be able to share it with you all.

There are over thirty beautiful 'bundles' available - which you can view online here - that when purchased, mean you'll also receive all of the following, alongside a gorgeous cosmetics bag to keep it all in;

Advanced Night Micro Cleansing Foam 30ml
Advanced Night Repair 7ml
Supreme Global Anti-Ageing Cell Power and Creme 15ml
Revitalizing Supreme Eye Balm 7ml
Pure Colour Envy Eyeshadow Quad Compact
Double Wear Stay-in-place Eye Pencil in Onyx
Sumptuous Knockout Mascara in Knockout Black 2.8ml

The bundles generally comprise of two of Estee Lauder's 'cult' products, and include a mix of both skincare and make up for you to take your pick from. Included are best sellers such as the Double Wear Stay-in-place Foundation and the Advanced Night Repair Complex itself, and so if you're after a special gift for someone or are just looking for a reason to stock up then this is the perfect opportunity.

Personally, I love getting free gifts like this as it gives me the chance to test out some new products that I perhaps wouldn't have considered trying previously. And, even more of a bonus if you're a 'travel sized' hoarder like me, is when some of your favourites arrive like this in miniature form!

Make sure to let me know if you decide to take advantage of the offer, and if you do, whether you find any new loves as a result!

After a long hiatus from posting on here, I thought I would kick start things again with a trusty wishlist. It's my birthday next weekend, and so I've a few things in mind that I might treat myself to in celebration of turning another year older - you've got to spoil yourself sometimes, right?

I've liked the idea of the whole 'scarf wrapped round the bag handle' trend for a while now, and the Dior monogrammed scarves are just too beautiful to resist. I also feel like the grey and blush tones in this one would be perfect for spring.

Sticking with the pastels - I'm a fan of anything and everything Monica Vinader, and this mint coloured bracelet is super cute. I've quite a few pieces from the brand now, and really like the fact that they offer free engraving, hence I'd quite like to take advantage again and get something 'personalised'.

Make up wise, I've spent the last few months trying to use up/whittle down what is in my substantial stash, and so it's been a while since I've tried anything new in terms of base. There has been so much hype around this new offering from Clinique though, that I am dying to give it a try. The fact that is claims to be both a foundation and concealer in one is the obvious draw, though I'm most intrigued by the giant applicator! It looks so convenient!

One of my favourite things that I got in the Liberty advent calendar I had this year, was a Byredo hand cream in the scent Bal D'Afrique. I had never tried anything from the brand before, and so I was very pleasantly surprised. I had been tempted to invest in one of their scents, however, my perfume collection is overflowing at the moment and so I thought I might check out one of their candles instead. I've heard quite a lot about Tree House, and the top notes of bamboo and pimento sound right up my street.

And of course, no February birthday could be complete without a jumper to cosy up in. I love the block colours of this ASOS offering!

What's at the top of your wishlist right now?
