Oh, Boy! Kiehl’s Mickey Mouse Holiday Collection

Kiehl's Mickey Mouse holiday collection

Call me biased, but I think that the latest face of Kiehl’s has to be my favourite yet! No, I’m not talking about McConaughey – though he IS doing a pretty fabulous job helping Kiehl’s support Autism Speaks (well, alright, alright, alright…) – I’m talking about Mickey Mouse!

That’s right, Kiehl’s and Disney have teamed up to give some of my very favourite skincare products a Mickey makeover; just in time for the holidays. Oh, boy! I was very excited to see that the new-look Creme de Corps was dropping at Kiehl’s Glasgow and couldn’t wait to pop into the Buchanan Street store for a sneaky peek…

Creme de Corps is one of my (and Gary’s!) most-used products and we usually splash out on the 500ml size so that we don’t fight over the bottle! This hand and body butter is super nourishing with a light, creamy fragrance – ideal for keeping dry skin hydrated and smooth, especially at this time of year.

Now that our favourite Disney star is adorning the packaging, we can’t wait to add a new bottle to our bathroom shelf!

Other items in the Kiehl’s Mickey Mouse holiday collection will include Richly Hydrating Hand Cream, special edition hydration and facial cleansing gift sets, lip balms, a tub of grapefruit-scented whipped Creme de Corps body butter, an advent calendar (!!) and more. As part of Kiehl’s ongoing dedication to giving back, the sales of these products will also help people in need (check out this article for more details!).

Collaborating with a top luxury skincare brand AND raising money for a good cause? Not bad for a 94-year old mouse!

Special bottles of Creme de Corps from Kiehl’s Mickey Mouse holiday collection are available in-store now, with more products releasing very soon. Will you be adding them to your letter to Santa this year?

Dinner, a Movie and an Avenger: Date Night at Cineworld VIP

cineworld vip

Earlier this year, Gary and I seen the trailer for Thor: Ragnarok and it got us REALLY excited. That soundtrack! Those snappy one-liners! JEFF GOLDBLUM IN BLUE EYELINER! What’s not to love?

We decided to start this week off with a little date night to see the latest instalment from the Marvel universe in style in the Cineworld VIP experience at Glasgow Renfield Street. If you follow my Instagram Stories, you’ll probably know by now that Gary and I go to the cinema a lot – at least once a week – and watch everything from the latest Disney releases, to horror films, foreign features and much more.

For something we’re really looking forward to, or a fun date night, Cineworld VIP is perfect for kicking things up a notch and making it feel like more of an occasion! And does it get more special than a date with an Avenger (or at least, a date while watching an Avenger)?!

In honour of Thor: Ragnarok‘s neon branding, I decided to wear my brightest tights and a sparkly jumper dress. I like to think of it as something Lisa Turtle might wear on a date at The Max…

Once we got to the cinema, we picked up our tickets and zipped up to the sixth floor to find the private lounge area and buffet. We had about 45 minutes before heading into the screen, so we had some dinner and a few obligatory goes on the Coca-cola freestyle machine. I swear we’re like a pair of big kids – raspberry peach Sprite Zero, anyone?

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: my favourite part of the Cineworld VIP experience has to be the comfy surroundings inside the screen itself! The reclining Lazy Boy-style seats and plenty of space means that you can really relax and feel immersed in the film. Sometimes I forgot that there were other people there (sorry, Gary!) and if I could have taken one of those seats home with me, I would have given it my best shot!

Before the trailers started, we picked up some popcorn and drinks and settled into our seats. If you’re anything like me and manage to finish your snacks before the movie starts, you can pop back out to the stand and replenish your stash – did I mention that unlimited treats are my second favourite part of going VIP? Halfway through the movie we decided to get some nachos – no lines meant we were back in a flash, too.

And the movie itself? Well, I don’t want to give too many spoilers but what I CAN say is that it’s one of the best Marvel movies to date! You know this gal is all about Iron Man (and Ant Man, of course!) and, even though there was no Tony Stark appearance this time around, the story, script and striking visuals more than make up for that. Also, Thor gets a haircut! I’m still shook, you guys!

If you grew up watching movies like Masters of the Universe, then I think Thor: Ragnarok will hit you in all the right nostalgic places. Also, Goldblum rocks blue eyeliner better than I ever could (and I’m totally OK with that!).

The action scenes and swooping shots of Asgard were stunning and this is where seeing it on the big screen really makes a difference!

We can’t wait to plan our next trip to Cineworld VIP, and there are a ton of films that we want to see this Autumn like Star Wars, Murder on the Orient Express and Justice League, so I’m sure we will be back really soon. You can book tickets to see Thor, with his fancy new haircut, AND see what else is showing in VIP here!

Have you seen Thor: Ragnarok yet? And who’s YOUR favourite Avenger?

As much as I love the opportunity to throw on a costume, to me, Halloween also means endless chances to dress in spooky theme; which I am ALWAYS 100% down for.

Over the weekend, we started getting things ready for Halloween by putting up a few fun decorations around the house. To get in the mood, I decided to wear my most ghoulish glam garb!

I love this Pumpkin necklace from long-time favourites, Tatty Devine – it’s so bright and cheerful (plus, THOSE WEE EYEBROWS!). It’s currently sold out online but you can find the rest of their Spooktacular collection here. I’m not sure if we’ll carve any real pumpkins this year but we’ve bought a few small ones to decorate with.

When it comes to this time of year I say GO BIG OR GO HOME, so I’m more than happy to wear a statement necklace with some OTT earrings (there’s no such thing as too many accessories, I am living my best magpie life!). I picked up these skeleton bad boys on a recent trip to H&M and they will be staying in my regular rotation long after October…

Emily and Fin’s frocks are right up my street with their retro-inspired silhouettes! I’m wearing their Abigail dress in a cute starry print which reminds me of the TV show Bewitched!

I’ve had these highlighter-orange shoes by Dr Martens for a few years now and I’m wearing them with a pair of sparkly ghost socks that were a gift from my best gal – because she figured I had to have them (I couldn’t agree more!). I love combining these shoes with patterned socks, I even did it again today.

What are your thoughts on spooky clothes and accessories at this time of year? Do you like to decorate for Halloween, too?
