Easter Treats – Weekly Wishlist

Easter Treats! Yay. Chocolate! Or not. Yes, dear readers, there’s not a chocolate amongst our Easter treats Weekly Wishlist – but there are loads of other lovely Easter goodies!

Who needs another egg – who’s not been eating creme eggs since January anyway?! We thought we’d bring you a host of different Easter treats! Treats for kids and big kids. Easter treats you can wear, some you can make, some you can eat. Perfect as gifts, and perfect as a little, well, treat for yourself!

Bunnies are synonymous with Easter. We love the Easter bunny in all its guises! It features heavily on our Easter Treats Weekly Wishlist. Little bunny ears are so cute, agreed? Find them in packs of six at White Stuff for £5.95. Maybe BHS’s lovely bunny cushion (£12) would make a great egg-alternative gift?

Build-A-Bear’s Happy Easter Chocolate Bunny (£34) looks good enough to eat – but don’t! H&M’s bunny keyring is super-cute! And if you really want to have a laugh this Easter, head to Claire’s Accessories for some funny bunny glasses!(£6)

If you want a sophistication with your Easter treat, then you’ll want the lovely Eve & FOx gold running rabbit necklace from JOY.

Chicks are another Easter favourite – send them on a cute card from Marks & Spencer (£2), or wear them in your ears with these stud earrings from Claire’s Accessories (£3.50).

Who remembers making Easter bonnets at school? We suggest you wear this beautiful navy and white cloche style from Top Hat by Stephen Jones @ Debenhams (£80) rather than one of the homemade variety, though.

Easter signifies spring, and that means spring flowers. Bold yellow floral embellishments make this lovely J by Jasper Conran  clutch bag (£40, Debenhams) a spring favourite of ours. And we love the quirky floral bracelet from the  Coachella range at H&M (£5.99).

Finally, get some fun Easter baking on the go with these cute cookie cutters from White Stuff (£8.50). There’s flower, an Easter bunny, a carrot, and, well, we’re not sure, actually – is it an onion?! Maybe a flower bulb?!

Mmm. Happy Easter everyone!


Colour Crush at The Body Shop

It’s spring – the flowers should be out, and colour should be creeping back into our world – but the recent cold blast and snow has kept some shades of spring in the dark.

Not at The Body Shop though, where the new Colour Crush Eyeshadows will brighten up any dull day. There are 30 shades of these new, mono shadows.

Colour Crush Body Shop

The spectrum ranges from elegant beiges, to bright, shocking pinks, and the finishes are a mix of pearly and matte finishes. The shadows are buildable, and can be applied wet or dry, worn alone or together or layered.

The recyclable packaging means you can see the colour, so easy to find in your makeup box, if you have a few of them. The pigment is great, and the shadows contain a blend of Community Fair Trade Brazil nut oil, marula oil, honey, organic virgin coconut oil and sesame oil.

The shadows are, of course, 100% Cruelty free- there is no bug shell extract to colour the product, shimmer effects come from mineral mica, and binding agents are made from natural vegetable materials, instead of crushed shellfish – yes, that does happen!

The Body Shop celebrated the EU ban on Animal Testing for cosmetics on March 11.

The best bit is the shadows are just £7 each – so mix and match and play with colour!
