What would you like to find in your Christmas Stocking?

Christmas Stocking Santa  Cotton Candy MachineChristmas Market Dublin


My friend Sarah Standing gave me the idea for this blog when I was standing in Marks and Spencer’s changing room, in Rhyl, back in October.

I loved the idea, not only do I get to be nosy and find out out exactly what’s on everyone’s most wanted list, but it’s also a useful gift/idea guide for those who leave Christmas shopping until a last panicked moment.

Here are the Christmas wishes of some of the people in my life!

And here are my own ideal stocking fillers –

June Ainscough Mint Green Hairbrush £49.00

The most beautiful brush that I can’t take my eyes off every time I’m in Selfridges.

Laura Mercier Scarlet Lip Stain £16.50

One of the make up artists at ‘The Wright Stuff’ used this on my lips earlier in the year. It lasts and lasts – fabulous colour, but there are other lip stain colours if ‘Scarlet’ isn’t your thing!

Nespresso Aeroccino 3 Milk Frother £46.00 –

I used this every day at my friend Sadie’s and it became my favourite possible thing. Make hot milk for coffee with it – hot chocolate, or hot milk and honey. The only place to buy it’s sensible to buy this from is directly from Nespresso, amazon was £30 more expensive.

Please let me know what is on your Christmas list. I was so organised this year, and now with eight days to go feel terribly unorganised, I don’t even have my Christmas tree up yet!

    Very tough one.. everything that have ever been pinned to my Pinterest maybe? If I really had to choose it would be between a stunning Mulberry scarf I found and Laura Gravestock’s Promise hoop earrings.

    Really hope you have the most amazing Christmas and get everything you ever wished for

    I would love to find a pair of leggings from Black Milk, a few good books I’ve been wanting to read, and a Clarisonic 🙂
