Christmas Gift Idea: Beauty Feet – Review and Giveaway

We spend a lot of time on our feet, but they are one of the parts of the body that is most neglected when it comes to giving ourselves a little TLC. Wearing uncomfortable shoes, walking around in bare feet, it has to be said that our feet are not always treated the best and this can lead to hard, dry and rough skin, particularly on the heels.

The SockShop have come up with a rather brilliant, pain free solution in the form of its Beauty Feet socks. These are socks that have a heel pad, that is also an active nourishing pad, containing a patented nourishing formula, a closely guarded Chinese Herbal recipe and Nano-silver. They say:-

Making your feet beautiful is now as easy as pulling on a pair of socks!

The great thing about these socks is that they are very wearable and perfect for everyday wear. They come in classic black which makes them a great work wear, trouser sock. They are also not too thick, so they can be worn with your smartest heeled boots as well as with Uggs and Wellies when it gets very cold.


In terms of effectiveness, 92% of people saw a marked improvement in the appearance of their feet. It is best to give the socks between 7-14 days to completely revive your heels.  The socks work best when you wear them for at least 8 hours a day and are machine washable and remain effective for at least 300 washes.

Beauty Feet would make a great stocking filler, but if you want to try them before Christmas, you can enter the competition below to win.

Win with Ellie Beans Prints

Going to a wedding this year and want to give a gift that is personal, beautiful and heartfelt? I think I may have found the perfect gift that would delight anyone romantic at heart. Ellie Beans Prints create exquisite prints, cards and gifts in Yorkshire with a personalised touch, the prints are unframed, or can be framed in handmade wooden frames that are also created in Yorkshire. The quality of the prints are wonderful, as they are printed using the highest quality pigmented light-fast inks, on paper that is high quality heavyweight satin or matt. I recently chose a print for my bedroom which has a really romantic feel, and, has I have already mentioned, would be a perfect gift for a wedding, engagement, anniversary, or just a little gift for a loved one.

Personalised Famous Couples Print from £10 Click to visit Ellie Beans

The personalised famous couples print is just adorable. The print is festooned with the names of iconic famous couples, from literature (Romeo and Juliet), from Pop Culture (John and Yoko), from Disney (Mickey and Minnie) and from television (Ross and Rachel). The name of you, and your partner is added to the list, standing out from the black and white print in striking red. You can change the names if you would prefer to add a different couple that may have special meaning to you, and can also change the size of the image – with choices going from 10×8 to A3. You can also opt to have it framed, mounted, and whether you want the print as Satin Lustre or Archival Fine Art.

My print is A4 sized, in the Archival Fine Art style, and the quality is superb. I have framed it myself so it can match my taste and decor, and it is now taking pride of place on my bedroom wall, although I also think it would work well on a dressing table or beside table too. If this is a gift idea, it can be sent straight to the recipient, making a rather wonderful surprise, and you will receive a proof by email so you can check details and spellings are correct.

Competition Time with Fashion-Mommy and Phase Eight

This month sees Fashion-Mommy celebrating its third birthday. The blog I started as a hobby to help me get through some tough times is still here and fighting fit. And, in celebration of this fact, the month of August is going to be very busy on the site, filled with news, product reviews and competitions from some of my favourite brands. We’re starting off with one of my favourite brands, Phase Eight.

Phase Eight are the must visit destination for Hollywood style glamour. It is a brand that creates the ultimate in ‘dressy’ dresses, the sort of gowns that are perfect for all manner of special occasions. From weddings to black tie events, Phase Eight will always have ‘the one’, the only gown that you could possibly wear to wow the whole room. Celebrities have cottoned on to this fact too, with Downton’s Chloe Nuttall choosing a Collection 8 gown for the BAFTAS, whilst Ruth Langsford has been choosing Phase Eight daytime dresses for the This Morning couch.
