Christmas is just around the corner and I am VERY excited about it.

As the eldest sister I feel like there's more pressure on me to buy amazing gifts for my sisters. Finding the perfect gift can be a complete and utter nightmare, but I realised there are so many essential things to buy your sisters; basically everything they steal on you.

My sisters are forever 'borrowing' everything and anything on me, from jeans to deodorant and from my curler to perfume. And tbh I'm fed up with it.

So how do we solve this problem?

Buy them the thing they're ALWAYS robbing on you. This gift guide is here to help my fellow struggling sisters who have had enough of their siblings and the constant case of missing belongings.

I am a big believer in the phrase Treat Yo Self. My bank account is certainly aware of my love of this motto.

Ever since Tom and Donna introduced me to the phrase on Parks and Recreation I’ve been treating myself to everything from over-priced notebooks to concert tickets.

Trust me, it hasn’t gotten to a dangerous level (yet) but a recent tweet reminded me of why we should splurge on luxuries every now and then.

Following the death of her mum, Twitter user Cath (@rentswrites) shared: “After she died I was tasked with clearing out her things. So much unworn and untouched. So many things kept “for best.” Don’t do that. Wear the clothes, spray the perfume and dance in the shoes. Be bold/outrageous/fancy while you have the chance.”

This tweet got me thinking about how guilty we can feel for treating ourselves which is nonsense. So, when I got a sneak peek at the new L’Occitane Christmas collection my mind screamed… TREAT. YO. SELF.

This year, the brand has teamed up with none other than French fashion house Castelbajac. Together they have created a divine collection that has left us starry-eyed.

The two brands have put together the most divine collection inspired by constellations, that instantly reminds us of the classic childhood book A Little Prince.

The new collection features the classic products we have adored for years, but they’ve been given quite the eye-catching makeover.

The Shea Butter rage is here to save your skin during those bitter, icy winter days. One thing you need to invest in is the nourishing hand cream with 20 percent Shea Butter. It will leave your hands feeling super soft in no time. Pick up the 200ml tube of this life-saver for €24.

Another heavenly product on our wish list is the hydrating Almond Milk Concetrate. The swoon-worthy product is our winter saviour. It keeps your body hydrated from dusk ‘til dawn. Treat yourself to a 200ml jar for €46.

There are so many incredible L’Occitane products we want to try, from hand creams to lip balms, and the perfect way to find your holy grail products is by purchasing one of the classic advent calendars. The advent calendar features 24 mini-products that you can look forward to opening every day of December.

The Classic Advent Calendar is worth €99 but available for €59- the ultimate bargain.  The Luxury Advent Calendar is worth €126 but is priced at €99.

The new L’Occitane Christmas collection in collaboration with Castelbajac is available in stores and online from September 20, 2018.

The festive season may be jolly and bright, but for Ireland’s elderly it can be anything but. As people get involved in Christmas activities and many clubs and organisations close for the holidays, loneliness can have a devastating effect on the older community – something that Age Action is once again highlighting this year.

Lead man of Dublin’s Hunting the Brave, John Sadlier, is raising money for this brilliant cause with his debut solo single, Dare to Dream (this Christmas). All proceeds from the sale of this great Christmas tune go to Age Action, to make the festive season a little better for the country’s older people. Check out the unforgettable tune below:

Hunting the Brave is an alternative folk band hailing from Dublin. Their music is a blend of alternative pop and the soft subtleties of folk, with a dynamic range of guitar and piano-led songs.

Along with John’s first solo single, 2014 has been a huge year for Hunting the Brave, who supported The Coronas and White Lies, and were also firm favourites at all the big festivals, including Indiependence. After all this success, John felt it was only fair to give something back.

“Christmas is an exceptionally tough time for elderly people who face loneliness throughout the year. When I wrote this song, I really wanted to use it to create awareness for those less fortunate than myself. I couldn’t think of a better charity to help than Age Action and I am delighted to be working alongside them this year. If I help one person I will be glad I could make a difference.”

Robin Webster, CEO of Age Action, is thrilled to be involved in this Christmas campaign. ‘We are delighted that John has chosen Age Action this Christmas. By downloading the song Dare to Dream the public not only get a great single but also help our work with vulnerable older people this Christmas’.

Dare to Dream (This Christmas) is available on iTunes from November 19th 2014. Follow Hunting the Brave on Twitter and Facebook to keep up to date with news.
