From the cosiness of warming up beside a log burning fire to the bubbling excitement of catching up with old friends over a glass or two, there’s something magical about this time of year. Even the stress of finding the perfect gift for that tricky family member (we’ve all got one!) and the nervous anticipation of cooking a turkey bigger than the oven has an enchanting feel to it. For obvious reasons this Holiday season is going to be different.
With the air heavy with uncertainty, we all need a strong dose of festive spirit to see 2020 off with gumption. To help you along we’ve dedicated this issue to the joy of beauty. Whether that’s the uplifting confidence you get from mastering a blush application or the shared happiness of a beautifully scented home, these pages are brimming with joy.
“For obvious reasons this Holiday season is going to be different.”
For those who are panicking about endless shopping lists, we’ve compiled the ultimate gift guide, while our Chief Merchandising Officer Margaret Mitchell reveals what she’s buying for who.

I urge you to turn to take a sneak peek into how makeup artist maestro Charlotte Tilbury will be spending betwixtmas.
All that’s left to say is that I hope this issue brings you as much joy as it has brought us in creating it.
See you on the flipside!
