Tesco – Christmas in July

Posted by Lipglossiping On July - 16 - 2012

Tesco’s Xmas Press Day is one of my favourites and is the only one I’ll be managing to get to this year…. something which gives me ultimate sad-face.  You’ll see why if you read this post.  Nonetheless, if I was going to be able to attend just the one, Mr. T really knows how to drag the festive spirit out of me.

The beady-eyed amongst you would have spotted a wide range of Christmas beauty goodies on display (that’s if you managed to scroll past the Christmas dessert table).  Let’s face it, Christmas is still ages away, so I’m not going to go into major details but the standout selections at Tesco this Christmas include:

New range of hair styling tools called T-H-X (Total Hair Experts) offering: curling tong, hair dryer, styling wand, digital straightener, volumising hair dryer, hot air styler, wave tong, and more.

Some great-looking affordable gift sets from the Extracts range

A new Steam Cream tin for Christmas!

Very sparkly hair accessories

and my favourite…

Kings & Queens is coming to Tesco!

I got a bit excited about the last one, you know, what with K&Q being my favourite bodycare range, ever.  I usually buy it online… and was doing cartwheels at the thought of being able to pick up my favourite shower gels along with my shopping… until I found out that it’ll only be sold on Tesco Direct.  Pop goes that bubble.  Sigh.  Still, at least I can get it delivered to store for free.

Anything in the above Yuletide selection taking your fancy?

 


Christmas? In July?!

Yes.  Christmas.  In July.

The Christmas press events (don’t know what they are? read BBB’s post here) are rolling in and I attended my first couple of the year yesterday.  They’re my favourites and I wish I could get in to London to attend more because the PR crowd (kinda like the IT crowd but with nicer hair and shoes) always work very, very hard to make the venues look super special and it really does bring a sense of Yuletide festivity to even the warmest of London days!

I know it’s all about the commercialism but you have to be a hardened cookie not to crack a smile when you enter the fairylands on display.

The Christmas events are always pretty packed too which gives me an opportunity to sneak around indulging my inner (wide-eyed) child and taking photos of all the beautiful things without getting (too many) strange looks.  I always feel like someone’s gonna wanna know why a beauty blogger is taking numerous photos of port & stilton.  I still haven’t come up with an answer but I think I should just pat my belly and lick my lips by way of a response.

Can you stomach a bit of Christmas in July?  Don’t worry… I’m not showing you the beauty offerings yet, unless it’s something super-duper hold-the-front-page exciting, they can wait until I’ve heard A Fairy Tale in New York for the first time on the radio.  So probably mid-August then…

But I can’t resist sharing some of the other pretty…. the pretty pretty.  Go on, whistle me a little Winter Wonderland.

OK, I promise not to talk about Christmas again until September.  Maybe.

Much love, me (and the elves) x
