10 Things Luxe Loves This December

Dreaming of >>


It’s that time of year again. We’re switching up our summer wardrobes, wrapping up in winter coats, and our thoughts are turning to the slopes.

This year, our winter wanderlust has got us thinking about an ultra-chic, cosy hideaway in the mountains. We’re talking a real home from home vibe with modern-meets-melow decor, a roaring log fire and picture postcard views.

Visit us over on our website where we’ll be picking out some of the chicest chalets for savvy skiers to enjoy. Whether it’s a cosy, countryside cabin in the woods, or a plush pad on the edge of the slopes, there’s something to suit all styles and budgets.













Listening to >>


Grey’s Anatomy fans, rejoice! Ellen Pompeo is gracing us with her talent once again, this time in the form of a podcast.

On her first-ever podcast, the award-winning actress sits down with a wide range of guests and celebrity friends who inspire her and who do extraordinary things.

Through in-depth, candid conversations, Ellen shines a light on people and issues that are important to her and the world. A truly inspiring listen.













Pampering with >>


Light-weight, portable, and crafted from soft, medical-grade silicone, John Lewis’ Portable Professional LED Mask works on all skin tones and types within ten minutes.

The mask delivers clinically-proven red 633nm and near-infrared 830nm wavelengths to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, improve hydration, even skin tone, and calm the mind.

Clinical studies show increased collagen and elastin production, and tissue oxygenation through a process called photobiomodulation.

These effects help skin cells absorb topical skincare products more effectively and help rebuild following the damage caused by the ageing process. Where do we sign up? £395
