    My name is Anna, and I am 33 years old interior designer by day and a lifestyle blogger by night. I am a creative person, Prosecco lover and a crazy cat mum but also a serial plant killer and cosy socks addict. I am sustainability ambassador and recently an aspiring stylist. 

    It’s Christmas, and I have teamed up with The Body Shop to create an Advent Calendar feature to show you their fantastic products.
    I am not a beauty blogger, but a simple girl in her 30s with same skin problems as every girl this age.

    A Christmas Pamper

    with The Body Shop

    My name is Jordan, I'm 23 and run the lifestyle and fashion blog 'Hello Miss Jordan' where I share my everyday adventures.
    There is nothing I love more than a pamper night, especially around Christmas when you can really go to town on creating the perfect evening routine to make you feel super cosy. Over on my blog I'm showing how I create my perfect night in (with the help of the delicious Almond Milk & Honey Range from The Body Shop), as well as how having a pamper night makes me feel so much better, both mentally and physically.

    Hi, I’m Daisy and Prettygreentea is my little space on the internet. I’ve been sharing my love of city breaks, coffee shops and self-employed life for over 8 years.

It’s an invigorating scrub, a bit like a body scrub...

    By day, I work in B2B Tech PR and by night I write my lifestyle blog. I have a penchant for writing and drinking fancy gin, and love exploring new places.

    One of my favourite things about Christmastime is the food and the wonderful flavour combinations you can create in the kitchen. As part of The Body Shop's Advent Calendar, I was challenged to create some festive recipes inspired by their Christmas ranges. Not one to shy away from a challenge, I decided to take on all three and create three Christmas Canapés to see you through the party season.

    I've always been a big fan of a matte lip, so when I heard Henry Holland had collaborated with The Body Shop for a limited edition Christmas collection, I was beyond excited! The collection comes in a beautiful tin which has been designed in true Henry fashion and is super bold and playful. Inside are three very wearable shades of liquid lipstick. I've been using The Body Shop products for years and their lip products have fantastic pigmentation and longevity. This will make the perfect stocking filler!
