It’s around now that lots of people we know start thinking about stocking fillers – just to spread the shopping and the expense. (Jo actually started months ago, but then gift selection is basically her hobby.)

Although our real focus on beauty treats for stockings won’t kick off for a few weeks, we wanted to alert you to this darling from Heathcote & Ivory in case they sell out super-fast. (And with a lip balm compact as cute as this, who’d be surprised if they did?)

We’ll certainly be tucking a few of these into the toes of Santa sacks, this Christmas. They’re from the completely irresistible Vintage & Co Baubles & Belles collection and they remind Jo of a very, very early illustrated Barbie catalogue she treasured for years, before it got lost in a house move.

Just the cutest gold illustrated compact, this flips open to reveal its mirror and the blend of lip-soothing waxes and oils lipsmackingly, deliciously and seasonally flavoured with sweet orange, raisins and warm spiced rum.

Don’t be surprised if you find it almost impossible to resist buying one for yourself, while you’re at it.
