OK, call me a brat, but I have a "lust-have"list
for Santa. Santa doesn't always look at my
list. Sometimes he looks at it. Sometimes he goes
rogue!!! Some years he gets ideas from my list
but doesn't actually buy the exact thing.
Either way I don't mind. Whatever Santa decides
to do I am happy with; but I do like to give some
So here is my "guidance" for Santa this year
(let's hoping he is feeling a little "flush").
OK, I do love me some stationary and the prettier the better.
I have bought these as gifts for some of my girlfriends who are
similar to me in their love for "pretty paper".
Matthew Williamson Notebooks
Shhhhhh! this one is a secret so don't go
sharing with your best friend.
This is a perfume you probably haven't heard of and yet
it's is Liberty's best selling product this year!!!!
The last time I wore this was I
was literally chased/followed/stalked by a woman who
was following me until she could find the right moment
to approach me and ask me what perfume I was wearing!!!!
I was even pounced on from behind in the cinema.
After recovering and re-starting my heart I told
the woman the name of the perfume.
Here's the thing, the perfume smells differently on everyone as it's
chemical make-up adapts to the wearer.
It is Es centric Molecule1. It consists of
one single ingredient (which is know as Iso E Super
in the fragrance world) and the rest is all down
to your chemicals.
Let me tell you once you wear this you will not wear
anything else. It will be like having your own signature scent.
Buy from Liberty of London
Any B.Zero ring by Bulgari will do me (I have the plain
gold version which I use as my wedding ring most days).
However, if Santa wants to earn points for 2017, he needs
to get this little beauty in his sack asap; the rose gold
and black ceramic version will be most welcome.
Gold coasters from my favourite interiors shop. When I moved
to the country this happened to be one of my "local" shops
(much to my Husbands's horror).
It's a shop that was founded by Lady Astor (Samantha Cameron's
mother or should I say David Cameron's mother-in-law ;-)
Carolina Herrera Matryoshka bag
Having lived in Spain for 12 years, Carolina
Herrera became a firm favourite of mine (especially
as my home was spitting distance from her store!)
So if I have to choose a bag it is nearly from one of
my 2 favourite designers. The other favourite always on
my list is also below.
The Loewe store was also too conveniently placed near my house
on both the Spanish mainland and also when I lived in Mallorca.
I had to pass it every single day. Needless to say I saw the
assistants in the store more than I saw my own family!!!
In fact they became my family ;-)
My Husband knows if he ever has to wrack his brains as to what
to get for me, he just needs to head to Loewe and all will be
"made easy" ;-) Headache gone without even taking an aspirin
Finally these bookends are gorgeous. They are handcrafted
in porcelain then plated in 24 carat to give that
really luxe look.
What do you think?
You can buy them here
So there you have it, My "lust-list".
All a little extravagant but it is a
"lust list" after all.
Would love to know is there something
extravagant on your Santa list which is there
"just in case" Santa decides you have been a
