Christmas is my favourite time of the year… I still revert back to my childlike self as soon as December the 1st hits. London transforms this time of year, the streets are lined with Christmas lights, colossal Christmas trees prime and centre in every square across the city and ice skating rinks dominate historic landmarks, it just makes my heart sing with joy! On my wish list this year, I’m lusting over wellness, travel and beauty bits that will see me into the new year with a spring in my step. Experience gifts are my favourite to receive as they give me something to look forward to, keeping the spirit on Christmas going that little bit longer.
To match my medium, I’d love for Santa Claus to somehow fit the AWAY The Original Bigger Carry-On down the chimney this Christmas. AWAY suitcases strike the perfect balance between functional and aesthetic, in the most luxe muted colour ways that give them a premium finish.
When reading the ingredients list on gourmand fragrance Cåke from the ethically driven brand ‘ånd Fragrance’, I knew I had to try it and put it straight on my Christmas wish list! I’m a sucker for anything sweet and this rich, warming scent is perfect for winter.
The ultimate present in my humble opinion is an experience. In a materialistic world, gifting a memory is the most priceless of all. Boutique Retreats, the curated collection of heavenly hideouts, offers gift vouchers for staycations across the UK. From cosy cottages to off-the-grid cabins, each uniquely picturesque home looks as if it’s been plucked from a fairytale.
I’m lusting over Lululemon’s new Wundermost collection. In the most luxuriously soft fabric, these pieces are silky on the skin and snatch your body for a flawless fit. My top picks are the Ultra-Soft Nulu Crewneck Cropped T-Shirt and the Ultra-Soft Nulu Long-Sleeve Turtleneck.
Good things come in small packages, and this rings true with any jewellery from Missoma. Over the years, I’ve been building my layered necklace collection, and I’m after a chunky gold chain to complete the look for a décolleté dripping in gold!
I love everything about the new Loewe X On collab! The Cloudtilt trainers have got to be the chicest performance shoe yet, featuring On’s innovative CloudTec® Phase midsole with a Loewe’s anagram subtle embossed onto the panelling.
Oysho do the comfiest undies I’ve ever tried and Christmas is the time I like to stock up on all the essentials! I’m in need of new Sunday/evening pants, any girl will know exactly what I mean by this…nobody wants to be cut up whilst trying to ‘Netflix & Chill’.The stretchy fabric fits like a second skin and this tonal palette is both cute and chic.
I’ve been on a health journey recently, and one change I’ve made is to add more low-impact training into my routine. I’m an adrenaline junkie and get such a kick out of a Barry’s or F45 class so this transition hasn’t come naturally to me, but there is one place that gives me that buzz in a calmer manner, and that is Heartcore. I’d love to receive a class pack so the New Year is filled with lots of wonderful classes at their beautiful studios across London.
Diptyque created the ultimate centrepiece with this glistening carousel which perches atop the candle and rotates to illuminate the room with interspersed golden slices projected in a wheel. Filling the room with the signature Baies scent, this festive carousel brings mesmerising magic and will serve me for years to come.
Sol de Janeiro’s Brazilian Bum Bum Cream has quickly become my go-to body cream, the scent transforms you to an exotic beach and the texture is whipped to perfection, sinking into the skin like a dream. The brand has launched a new ‘Biggie Biggie’ size, 500ml of deliciousness that will keep me going for quite some time.
