Pursuits of Passion with Aesop gift kits via Ollie & Sebs HausYou might have seen on my Instagram stories last week, that I went and visited the Aesop in Stockbridge street, Edinburgh. Like, with all the Aesop stores they never disappoint, and this one really didn’t.

It’s that time of year when we are all thinking of what gifts to get loved ones and I got the chance to sample and have a look at the gift kits Aesop had this year. Six, Pursuits of Passion gift kits, created in honour of noted naturalists, each one tailored for skin, hair and body. The sleeve of the kits are by Norwegian artist Bendik Kaltenborn and are almost like a children’s fairytale from a beautiful illustrated book. I am just going to leave you with a teaser of photographs, but I will be back to talk through each gift set.  In the meantime you can see them all here.

Slowly getting into the Christmas spirit. Although things will need to go a little more slower, as I am off to Zurich tomorrow. We usually don’t go and get the tree until two weeks before Christmas, so I think it will step up a gear then.
