I love this pic of one of my all-time favourite movie stars – the wonderful Carole Lombard. As Rupert Everett sort-of said in My Best Friend’s Wedding: “Love the hair, love the dress, love the Christmas wrapping paper!” Actually, those prettily decorated boxes are what I covet the most – gifts-in-boxes always remind me of the Christmases we see in old movies. Which is one reason why I love visiting the Origins counter at Christmas – they offer so many fab gift boxes and they wrap them for you too!
Some of the gift sets are such great buys that it’s tempting to stock up for yourself. The one I have my beady eye on is the Plantscription set of anti-ageing products, Grow Younger. It contains a full-size, 50ml, tub of Plantscription Anti-Ageing Night Cream, plus smaller sizes of the range’s cleanser, eye cream and Youth-Renewing Night Cream. At £55, it offers a jaw-dropping saving of over £40.
And as if that wasn’t enough, if you spend £50 at the Origins counter at John Lewis stores nationwide, or at Harrods or Selfridges in London, you’ll receive a lovely, Nanette Lepore-designed toiletry or cosmetic bag to keep for yourself!
