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!

6 Comments on What would you like to find in your Christmas Stocking?

  1. 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


  2. My wishlist is YSL Glossy stains, an Ipad and Elemis Pro Collagen Oxygenating eye cream, oh and a jade roller after i read your review 🙂
    Hope you have a lovely Christmas
