Untitled #37

Ah the most wonderful time of the year has arrived - when my obsessive collage making really comes into its own. The Christmas and Birthday gift wish-list. Breathe it in people. 

Now - I know Christmas is not really about the presents - and I promise I looking forward to plenty besides the gifts, but a gal can dream, so let me have my moment. This is basically a montage of all things lovely that I think anyone (ME) would be pretty darn stoked to received. 

As you will definitely have gathered by now, I love beautiful PJs, and these ones from Topshop are divine. Christmas isn't Christmas without a new set! I may have asked for both the shorts and the trousers to maximise wearability. And who wouldn't love a cosy new pair of slippers to go with said PJs. For the days when silk isn't on the cards, a fresh pair of nubby joggers like these ones from Topshop would be grand. 

As well as enjoying sequin drop earrings (courtesy of J.Crew) and pretty party heels (thank you LK Bennett), lately I also like to use Christmas and my Birthday to look ahead to the Summer - (that's where this tassle dress and printed espadrilles, both by Isabel Marant, come in).
These colourful Fendi sunglasses would be fabulous come the warmer months, but will also cheer up our current grey days. Sunglasses are not just for Summer.

Beauty and lifestyle gifts are always joyous and you just can't go wrong with Garance Dore and Amanda Brooks' new books. Perfect for the coffee table and to curl up with in the New Year. 
Diptyque, Aesop, Smythson and By Terry staples will also always be welcome. 

I try my best to look after my skin (sometimes it can be a rather wild and untameable beast). This 2016 I'd like to take it up a notch by taking a trip to Sarah Chapman's Skinesis clinic - it would be a dream to find a few vouchers under the tree. 

It's a wildcard entry, I'll give you that, but ever since reading The I newspaper on a recent flight I've been hankering after a subscription. 

Ok - enough pussyfooting around. We've all noticed the Saint Laurent beauties sitting front and centre. I can think of few things better than marine-navy-blue-leather-perfection in structured-neat-tote form. I don't doubt for a second that Father Christmas would agree... 

I hope you're all enjoying the fun and festivities!
