Kissmas Gift Guide 2019

With Christmas carols being queued up ready to play, and decorations being dusted off, the festive season is officially here.

Along with all the joy and festivity that this time of the year brings, it also brings a little bit of stress when it comes to gift giving.

We’re making it easier for you this season with the lük beautifood ultimate gift giving guide.

Here’s our specially curated guide for 2019.

  • For the office Secret Santa

Surprise and delight your Kris Kringle with one of our gorgeous new limited edition Pretty in Pink shades – Nude Pink or Rosé. These are the perfect summer colours to get them through the event season, with nourished and hydrated lips!

  • For the one who is hard to buy for

We all have that one person who is a little difficult to buy for. Whether it’s a relative or a friend who has it all, why not give them the option to choose their own lük beautifood product with an e-gift voucher! They’ll be able to select a colour and product combo they love!

  • For the beauty lover

You know, the friend whose make-up case is bursting at the seams, but would rather buy another case than miss out on the latest trend. Create a custom 3 Lip Nourish Gift Pack with shades you know they’ll love. They will be able to create the exact look they’re after with buildable coverage.

  • For the adventurer

We all have that special friend who is always looking for their next travel experience to some exotic location on the other side of the world. With only a backpack to fill, a sampling Lip Nourish Tasting Plate in pinks and reds will have them standing out just how they like it!

  • For the ethical friend

From shopping at the local farmers market, to living a waste free life, our entire range of our cruelty free products is for your conscious friends! Made from all-natural and toxin free ingredients, a new lük beautifood lipstick in a reusable cotton pouch is bound to be their favourite gift of the season! Some of our most popular shades include Tea Rose, Ruby Grapefruit and Tangerine Pomegranate.

  • For yourself

Treat yo’ self!
You’re buying everyone such incredible gifts, you shouldn’t have to miss out! Select the perfect shade combination with the 2 Lip Nourish Pack. From nudes to deep reds, you will be hard pushed to just buy two! Maybe a sneaky hint to your partner to buy the rest of the colours might do the trick.


Offer valid until 29th November, 2019

Best of all, shipping is free for Australia with no minimum spend. For our international friends, spend over $50 to access free shipping!

Now that your Christmas shopping is sorted, you can officially start bragging to all your friends about how organised you are. And if they’re struggling for gifts, you know where to send them.

Kisses,

Healthy Eating Christmas

How to Eat Clean & Still Indulge this Christmas

‘Tis the Christmas party season where we tend to shy away from our daily clean living routines, and are tempted by those Christmas treats we know are not as good for us or have little control over what is offered to us. Knowing this is a common occurrence during the festive season, I thought I’d come up with a ‘cheat sheet’ on how to eat clean and still indulge this Christmas.

1. Water

We’ve said it so many times – WATER. WATER. WATER. DRINK IT AND LOVE IT! Water will keep you feeling energetic, while helping you look fresh and youthful. It keeps your skin plump & moist and flushes out the toxins. When drinking alcohol, keep your body and skin hydrated. One glass of champagne, one glass of water, one glass of champagne, one glass of water… and so on (not to mention giving you a ‘lighter’ hangover!)

2. Less is More

When at a party, opt for a smaller plate and smaller portions. Don’t stress, you’ll still be able to sample & savour everything, but in smaller rations!

3. An Easy Decision

Choose fruit and vegetables in larger proportions over fried and sugary foods.

4. Slow Down

Savour your food. Eat slowly and allow your body to know when it has eaten a sufficient amount.

5. Plan Healthy

Have a delicious & nutritious menu in mind for Christmas brunch/dinner and stick to it.

6. Don’t Skip

Don’t skip meals – and if you are hungry, grab a wholesome, fresh-food snack in between meals. Try yoghurt, fruit, raw vegetables, wholegrain foods and unsalted nuts.

7. Healthy Snacks

Avoid temptation by limiting sweet treats at your place. Have a beautiful bowl of stone fruit & nuts in their shells on the table for you and for when friends and family drop by.

8. Indulge!

But most importantly – indulge (in moderation, of course!) and don’t feel guilty. It’s Christmas – a time for reveling in good times with your friends and family. Balance over indulgence with exercise – walks with your family, yoga in the morning and of course your health-full NYE resolutions!

Last minute Christmas Gift Ideas

Last minute Christmas gift ideas guaranteed to please

‘Tis the season to be…tactful about your family’s Christmas gift ideas.

The truth is we’re not very original or thoughtful about gift-giving. Four in five of us admit buying the same presents every year.

And five popular choices – socks, jocks, candles, ties and photos – are the least liked, according to recent research by Paypal.

Well bah humbug! I’ve got a theory about perfect presents for your loved ones this festive season based on what people really want.

Internet studies by Buzzsumo reveal stories about healthy eating, exercise, vintage music and even a cheesecake recipe top the list of viral shares in 2016. So let’s try and be a bit clever this year.

I’ve targeted my Christmas gift ideas around these obvious trends. And with more people than ever purchasing online – thanks to cyber sales, same day shipping and free returns services, you’ll have all your seasonal shopping wrapped in less than 24 hours. Let’s give thanks and praise to that!

Grab a bargain that’s beautiful

UK Research from the University of Hertfordshire shows you don’t have to spend a lot to make people happy.

For women, cosmetics are often in the top ten most desired gifts. In this WA study, women admit they love to receive lipstick because they don’t often buy it for themselves.

[thrive_leads id=’27581′]

With the focus on healthy living, choose a website that offers pure, natural, products containing food active ingredients for inner and outer glow.

Or add a little luxury to her life with a reasonably priced cashmere offering from Marks & Spencer or a recipe book from clean living nutrition queen Amelia Freer, Supercharged Food expert Lee Holmes or family favourite Jamie Oliver.

High-tech must-haves

While women like meaningful gifts, men like practical ones. Items to do with technology and music are the leading most-loved Christmas gift ideas online.

Older music outsold new releases online for the first time last year, so try Ebay or Discogs if you know what classics your receiver raves about.

If you’re feeling flush, the latest phones, tablets (Kindle), computers, cameras (think drones, GoPros & 360fly 4K action cameras – which have 360° footage) deliver. But tangle-free wireless headphones and speakers are also coveted.

On a budget? This Bluetooth tracker Tile, a tiny app that finds your keys, wallet or phone or a cool game-playing robot (Anki Cozmo – see Amazon) would be cracker alternatives.

Last minute Christmas gift ideas that give back

There’s no doubt that giving gifts makes us happier than receiving them – and there’s nothing more joyful than changing someone’s life.

So consider a charity donation through this or a similar website and give a community clean water, send a child to school or support a woman starting up a small business.

It costs just $15 to buy a chicken which helps feed and support a needy family. So forget the turkey this Christmas – a chook is truly life-transforming.

And don’t forget – if you’re looking for the perfect Kris Kringle gift, stocking filler or gift for a friend or family member you’re sure to find a beautifully packaged Lip Nourish gift to suit the occasion.

hangover-cures

Hangover Cures.

Okay, so you had a wee bit too much indulgence at your Christmas lunch, and now you’re feeling all kinds of yuck – too much food, too many drinks and too much talking.

  1. Water. You need to rehydrate your body, and water is always the way to go. If you’re after something with a little bit of flavour, try adding a squeeze of citrus or try one of those coconut waters that have popped up everywhere. (yes cracking your own nut is a skill) Coconut water will help to rehydrate your body,  with a pleasant mellow flavour it’s a healthy alternative to a those ‘fake food’ energy drinks that have ridiculous amounts harmful additives.
  2. Avoid excess caffeine. Caffeine will only continue to dehydrate your body – the total opposite of what you need right now. But a single latte or green tea will give you that instant ‘ahh’ moment to get you going – it is Xmas and we are BIG believers in every in moderation including moderation!
  3. Eat fresh & light. Help your body get back to feeling gently ‘cleansed’ . For a couple of days stop eating meat, dairy rich foods, and bowls full of sweet desserts. Instead eat lots of fresh vegetables, salad, fruit, muesli, grains, nuts – foods that are nutrient dense and help speed up the transition of food through your digestive system. We are not suggesting a ‘detox’ at this special time of year – just eating to stop that bloated, over indulged feel (& whooziness!)
  4. Stretch & Move.  Go walking or do Yoga! The latter may be like the last thing you feel like doing, but yoga has numerous health benefits, especially in relation to hangover cures. It’s one of the quickest ways to rid the toxins from your body, because the movements will literally ‘wring’ the alcohol out of your body. (Sourced from Danny Williams, Tree Hugger) Pretty neat, yeah?
  5. Juice or Shots. If you are at home – get juicing or if you are hitting the sales try a shot of wheatgrass or some other dark green leafy veg…..the concentrated  levels of phytonutrients will help to detox your body, while also giving you more energy.
  6. Get some much needed rest. Rejuvenate yourself by maintaining the Aussie tradition of lazing in front of the TV to watch the Sydney to Hobart & one day cricket test! With extended family still around to look after the kids – catch some shut-eye, and your body will love you for it.

Hope you had a fabulous, beautifood Christmas!
