It’s all about me, this list. I have a children’s list too, but this one is pure indulgence (and fantasy sadly!)
I’m a great believer in everyday luxury, I would rather have a beautiful keyring that I use everyday than an amazing party dress which I rarely wear. So the first two items on my Christmas list are very practical!
Valentino lace effect sunglasses I just love these, the combination of the cats eye shape and the lace print is so glamorous
Prada pink wallet I have had my eye on this for a while, the colour is so beautiful, and really is there an item you use more often than your wallet?
You just can’t have a Christmas list without some sparkle and I certainly don’t need the festive season as an excuse to wear glitter or sequins.
I got a great Lancome gold glitter varnish last Christmas, but it’s empty now, so this Butter London looks like a good replacement
J Crew Flower lattice necklace I have been pining for this necklace for a while now, I absolutely love it
These Maison Martin Margiela boots are the ultimate ankle boots and the great thing about metallics is they go with everything.
Like Eve, I have been a fan of By Terry’s lip balm for a while now, but the packaging of this Dior balm has turned my head, it is just so pretty! Dior rose lip balm
Kiehl’s Creme de Corps is the ultimate body lotion for me, it smells delicious and has such a lovely sheen
Diptyque Baies is the only scented candle I like, a beautiful fragrance the lasts for ages. I had the tragedy of getting the Baies room spray last year, and promptly smashing it on the ceramic tiles. I still wince when I remember it!
Now, you have to have something snuggly on your Christmas list, don’t you? I dream about lounging around all day in these Liberty print pajamas and sheepskin slippers, watching Grace Kelly movies and reading old magazines. As if that’s going to happen.

And no Christmas list from me is complete without some cashmere
I have been lusting after this jumper for a while now and finally nabbed it yesterday (Yes all my best Christmas presents usually come from myself) Get it now from Whistles or House of Fraser with 20% off Whistles Audrey cashmere jumper
And this is a gorgeous snuggly treat from Eilis Boyle cashmere hat scarf . And look, with all this snow and ice we are forecast, it is an absolute winter essential, no?
And finally, I need a bag on my list. I have been hankering after a red bag for a while. After coming across this vintage Birkin, nothing else will do now. I think I will need a lottery win for this one somehow
