Our lovely resident blogger Sarah Jayne Adams is taking you through this seasons awesome new products!


In the run-up to Christmas (yes, I said the ‘C word’) there’s an abundance of new and exciting releases that have launched in our high street stores. After treating myself to some much needed retail therapy, I’m talking about the brand new launches – beauty, fragrances, interiors – the lot) that I came across in the Bridges, Sunderland, that you need to know about…

Millie Mackintosh

Made In Chelsea star and fashion designer, Millie Mackintosh, has just launched her second beauty collection with Boots. I’m personally I huge fan of Millie and I adored the previous range, so I was super excited to see the new collection. The latest collection includes gorgeous make-up packages and luxury skincare sets. For fans wanting to get their hands on them, Boots currently have them on 3 for 2 – that’s right the Christmas offers have begun – and the BIG gift set which retails for £40 is currently half price as the first Christmas Star Buy. Not only to lie, I’ve bought it and I can’t wait for it to arrive.

River Island Homeware

River Island has just launched its homeware range. Repeat. River Island has just launched its homeware range. My jaw dropped when I entered the store and saw this collection! This new range aims to bring the chic style of RI into our homes with a HUGE range of decorative accessories, furniture and storage, candle holders, luxe touches, pillows and throws in a vast selection of themes. Electric Opulence, Baby Doll and New Nordic are just some of the ranges I’ve seen and I can’t to pick up some pieces from the New Nordic collection – serious #homegoals.

Make-Up Revolution

Make-Up Revolution has given us A LOT of cult make-up favourites this year and now the brand has recently dropped a skincare range, which has been well-received by beauty influencers, consumers and skincare lovers alike. The collection encompasses of creams, gels, serums, exfoliators, oils and acids that are not only super affordable, but are cruelty free, fragrance free and vegan. I’d snapped these up fast if I were you!

JOY by Dior

The newly released JOY by Dior not only smells absolutely divine, but the launch was a rather major moment in history. JOY by Dior is the first fragrance to be released from the powerhouse in over 20 years. Plus, A-list celebrity, Jennifer Lawrence, is the first new face the brand have had in over 10 years. The scent itself is immediate, clear and generous. JOY by Dior is illuminated by the vibrant smile of flowers and citrus friuts, the smooth caress of woods and the serenity of musks. A fragrance with a thousand nuances and facets, yet crystal-clear. Definitely one to try!

Nike Air Vapormax

Seven years in the making, 2018 saw Nike take sneakers to the next level with the release of the Air Vapormax where they ditched the midsole in favour of an air unit and pod combo. This provides the lightest and most responsive cushioning to date. Available in different styles including both Flyknit and Mesh, you’re bound to find a pair that suits you.
