Come and Explore Crabtree & Evelyn's Secret Garden with me..
I love receiving invites to launches at this time of the year , they prove to be such fun as the atmosphere and anticipation of the festive season approaches. It was with much glee that I received an invite to Crabtree & Evelyn's Secret Garden ... which was very secret and covered in mystery and intrigue from the brightly colored invite which hinted at what lay ahead. To the confirmation and key word to enter the secret garden  ....oooh the suspense.

And so the day dawned and I made my way to the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront store in Cape Town. We could visit the Secret Garden anytime between 4pm - 7pm and yet somehow I think all the Beauty Editors and Beauty Bloggers landed up at the store at the same time.

 It was jam packed ...sjoe! 

I don't do small and packed spaces at the best of times so I decided to maximise my visit and minimise the small talk. So let's explore this fabulous Secret Garden full of goregous gifts , beautiful Christmas Decor and delectable treats .....



Crabtree & Evelyn are renowned for their fabulous Christmas fare and signature fragrances, this year saw the addition of a new Home fragrance called Gilded Chestnut ' a warm, spicy , vanilla , nutty' fragrance. Even more impressive were the unique diffusers with clay adornments in place of the traditional bamboo sticks...

Upon entering the store we were greeted by a fabulous table decked out with all the beautiful Christmas decorations, and a rather unique take on a Christmas tree. I rather fell 'in love' with two cute little white critters ...

 How gorgeous are these SNOW GLOBES .....

The store is filled from top to bottom with gorgeous Gift Sets to suit all tastes , from Crabtree & Evelyn's famous Hand Creams (of which1 sells in the world every 5 seconds) to their Aromatic Tea's and yummy looking Cookies and Coconut Ice.

Crabtree & Evelyn pride themselves on exceptional quality without compromise, a promise that ensures you get only the 'best' as a client at all times.


Crabtree & Evelyn have the most beautiful packaging and with the festive flair for Christmas even more so. You would be missing out on a true Christmas Nostalgia experience if you didn't at least just visit the store and look around.

However if you are an avid fan don't miss out on the opportunity to score with these fabulous gifts sets on offer, or to add to your collection of Christmas adornments ( I love these Limited Edition Reindeer above by Gisela Graham).

Gifts vary from approx R200 upwards ....

I loved attending the Christmas launch and of course we were spoilt rotten with some yummy snacks and a fabulous gift , a huge big thank you to Crabtree & Evelyn SA.

I hope you enjoyed exploring the #SecretGarden with me, but it's always better in person.....enjoy.
