Heathcote & Ivory Staycation

Turn your lack of vacation into the ultimate staycation – giving you the best beauty ideas for some luxury at home with Heathcote & Ivory.

2020 has seriously blurred the lines between work and home for most of us. Remote working (WFH) has become part of the norm and we have been spending more time inside our own four walls than ever before. And the thought of a holiday, packing a case and perusing departure lounge goodies? For many of us, that’s a distant dream…

Whether you’re leaving the house or not, it’s time to switch off, take a step back from the daily grind and focus on you. We’ve teamed up with Heathcote & Ivory, along with their bespoke brands Sara Miller, RHS and Cath Kidston to bring you the best British Beauty Staycation treats to take you a million miles away, without going far!

Rest and Relaxation

Cath Kidston Cottage Patchwork Sleep Set

Holidays usually offer an escape from your home environment – whether you be an adrenaline junkie, sunseeker, city break lover or one for a romantic getaway. A key focus for our home staycations this year is to make time for rest and mental wellness. Cath Kidston Cottage Patchwork Sleep Set contains two essentials of lavender-infused pillow mist and a calming gel rollerball with lavender and vetiver oil to help encourage a peaceful night’s sleep.

Treat yourself

Morris & Co. Pink Clay & Honeysuckle Large Wash Bag

A roomy wash bag is a must for a staycation and the Morris & Co. Pink Clay & Honeysuckle Large Wash Bag is the perfect size to house all your beauty essentials. Featuring the romantic Compton print (originally designed for Compton Hall in Wolverhampton) in a contemporary, jewel-inspired colour palette, it makes for a stylish wash bag upgrade.

Here are some extra quick tips to help you make the most of a summer staycation:

Hotel at home

Something to add a little bit of luxe to your home. Add hotel inspired luxury to your bathroom with a Sara Miller London Soap and Accessory Dish.

Try something new

Try out a new recipe or start a new hobby, is there something you have always wanted to try but can never find the time? Now’s your chance.

Fall back in love with your home

Because we’re all spending so much time there, show your home some TLC, have a clear out of unused/unwanted items, this helps to clear the mind as well as space. Perhaps do a deep clean so your home feels fresh and inviting. Try rearranging furniture or buying new cushion covers for your sofa, a little change can go a long way.

Home Fragrance Gifts – Our Top Picks For Christmas 2016

Looking for home fragrance gifts this year? From candles to room mists, there’s a gift for everyone. We pick our favourites at allbeauty.

Home fragrance gifts are always welcome, and a great option for those who don’t wear scent. Did you know? There are a whopping 80 candles on-site right now, from brands including Molton Brown, Penhaligon’s, thisworks, NEOM Organics, Orla Kiely and Cowshed (phew!).

Christmas Scents
For a Christmas-themed scent, the Arran Sense of Christmas range is ideal, with fragrances including cinnamon and mandarin (available as candles or diffusers). Also, don’t miss the new Elemis candles, which come beautifully boxed in a mirrored holder – these are great for teachers, secret santa and older teens. And if the budget can stretch, Molton Brown’s orange and bergamot 3 wick candle is a luxurious festive scent with heart notes of ginger and base notes of musk. What a great way to set the scene on Christmas Day as your guests arrive.

Relaxing Scents
For the at-home spa sensation, NEOM Organics is our go-to range. For something a little different, try one of their treatment candles – light the wick and burn for 30 minutes, then once a pool of oil has formed blow out the candle and allow to cool slightly, before you pour over any area of the body in need of nourishing treatment. A lovely treat for those with stiff or aching joints. If tradtional de-stressing isn’t on your radar, then try thisworks black spice and cedar candle with essential oils. This is relaxation but without a hint of lavender or chamomile. But candles don’t just have to relax, Cowshed Uplifting Travel Candles are a fab way to wake up in the morning – they’re also 100% natural soy wax and suitable for vegetarians.

Statement Candles
If you’re looking for a single, large, statement gift, then go for a luxury 3 wick candle. Our Penhaligon’s range are packed with essential oils and burn for up to 110 hours! Yes they’re heavy on the budget but they pack a serious wow. Staying with luxury but lighter on the budget are our Molton Brown 3 wick candles and 100% guaranteed to impress. As a general guide when buying larger candles, look for 1) burn time 2) ingredients (preferably essential oils) and 3) the number of wicks. These are all indicators of size and quality.

Diffusers
If a candle doesn’t appeal then choose a diffuser. These clever jars of scented oil can be placed around the house to slowly give off scent over a number of weeks. And unlike pot pourri they really work! Plus the recipient can usually buy a replacement bottle of oil to refill once empty. For a gentle, fresh, citrus scent try Arran home fragrance. Otherwise an Orla Kiely diffuser is guaranteed to be popular and again makes a great gift by itself. For a friend who finds it hard to sleep, a NEOM Organics Tranquility diffuser will be very welcome.
