If you’re anything like me, leaving EVERYTHING until the last minute then here’s a round up of the stylish, ethical and fabulous places to shop in time for Christmas (and all year round!)…I did a quick check and all can deliver in time for Christmas – if you buy now!
Founder Imelda Burke, says it specialises in ’emerging, results-driven niche brands’ but you’ll also find trusted favourites like Lavera, Nvey Eco and Jo Wood Organics. It’s like a treasure trove of adorable beauty finds and walls adorned with vintage mirrors and cute illustrations. There are treatment rooms for beauty and complimentary therapies too so you can treat yourself or others. You can also pick Imelda’s brains on everything to do with natural and organic beauty as she’s a trusted beauty insider. beingcontent.com
It’s a newly opened store in a cute new shopping courtyard in Covent Garden and inside there’s enough to keep you engaged until they chuck you out. I had no idea French brand, Melvita, had so many products until I visited the store last week. And, they have the most AMAZING planted wall that had me swooning over it (yes, I’m a little sad!) and wishing to have one installed in my house. The ranges are affordable and gentle on skin, perfect for winter. melvita.com
3. Lovely’s Vintage Emporium
Oh I love a good vintage hideout and this one is totally fabulous! It’s bright, uplifting and fun to browse. Founder, Lynnette Peck-Bateman, has obviously put a lot of work into the visual experience (which makes a change to the typically dreary vintage shopping sites around) and sourcing of designer and non-designer, unique pieces. It’s my kind of vintage style – statement pieces. A lot of bold and eye-catching finds from 60s, 70s and 80s (as well as other eras) with strong shapes and vibrant colours. These are the kind of pieces that get people asking you where your clothes are from. Check it out! lovelys-vintage-emporium.myshopify.com
