I’m really looking forward to a winter Christmas in London this year, the house is going to be filled with family AND a new baby. You can’t get more exciting than that as far as Christmas gifts go.
However as always a few cosy comforts to warm up your home and style never go amiss. I have put together a few little bits and bobs I wouldnt mind finding under my Christmas tree, or even on my tree for that matter. There are some beautiful Christmas Tree decorations around, I could spend a small fortune just on my tree which we went to choose yesterday. It was such fun trying to choose the best tree suited to our lounge, whilst Oliver ran amongst the trees playing hide and seek with another little girl. I am secretly pleased that we didn’t have enough decorations to properly fill up this year’s bigger than usual tree, so I need to purchase more :-)
A Wide brim felt hat from Topshop to keep that head not only stylish but warm too. A Fine Cashmere scarf from Hush wich can be used under your coat or as a shawl when out at a more formal occasion that will keep the bare shoulders super toasty. This Metallic make up bag from Jigsaw is a perfect bit of glamour for housing all your important touch ups bits for many festive nights out, always important for the things you pull out of your bag to look as good as your bag. There is nothing better than getting really cosy on the couch with a luxurious Wool Mix throw and cushions like this The White Company one, a warm mug of hot chocolate and a great Christmas movie (thinking National Lampoons Christmas vacation, never gets old). These glamorous little Hanging Paper Houses from The White Company will perfect any tree. Your home won’t be cosy and complete without some gorgeously smelling aroma’s (other than food aroma’s) and also help to get rid of oily cooking smells that may be lingering from many a roast dinner, the heavenly scent of these Ormonde Jayne candles are seriously divine. This is a gift that will be on every one of my lists every year. A calf hair Leopard print clutch like this gem from Question-air fits in perfectly with a winter themed outfit, wearing a slightly furry bag does make you feel warmer somehow…And lastly but not at all least I have chosen a cool winter grey colour pair of sunnies to ward off the snowy glares on those crisp winter walks, Cutler and Gross Sunglasses from J Crew
Junior Carloni is due to make an arrival pretty soon (I hope) so if you don’t hear from me again before Christmas, I would like to wish you all a very Merry Festive Season, a prosperous New Year and if you are travelling stay safe!
