Dear Santa

Collage created using TurboCollage software from www.TurboCollage.com

In the world I was brought up in wish lists hardly existed, you were given what others thought you needed. Most of the time the joy was “almost equal” over a pair of home knitted socks as for books, games and sport equipment. Though I do remember the hard to hide disappointment at the age of 5, staring at my first watch, while my little sister unwrapped the coolest barbie in town, then feeling ashamed afterwards towards my dad’s best intentions.

In fact today I find wish lists quite helpful, and it has saved me more than once when gifting others, having had the person in mind I wanted to treat. So I’ve teamed up with global online retailer Farfetch.com, who offers free global shipping until 18th of December, to curate my Christmas wish list of their high level stock ranging from clothing, accessories, vintage and homewear. You can never go wrong with bags, shoes, lingerie, designer knits, scented candles, cosmetic cases, sunglasses, jewellery, furniture and books, to that special someone, do you hear that dear Santa?
Louis Vuitton vintage cosmetic case, sunglasses by Chloe, socks by Marni, lingerie by La Perla.

And whilst you’re at it, in the Christmassy spirit I mean, why don’t you donate towards a good cause or charity organisations close to your heart. This year I’ve picked Children With Cancer UK, but you can find a long list of non-profitable global organisations here. May everyone be merry!!!

A lesson from men…

Umbrellas - Farfetch- The Northern Light

After many years in Rainland I’ve spent unknown amounts on rather cheap, not functional, nor good-looking, emergency umbrellas, who all happened to be just that too, not lasting much longer than the time to get transported away from the momental heavy rain attack, or being left behind and forgotten about shortly after. Maybe splurging more on a luxury upgrade would last a whole lot longer, incorporating it in your outfit sort of way. I would certainly think twice before leaving stylish investments like these above mindless behind, a lesson from my most stylish male friends…

You’ll find a great collection of stylish, timeless and genderless, works-with-everything umbrellas on Farfetch.com, officially on my wishlist! Umbrellas by EtroAlexander McQueen and Swims above, ranging from £47 to £495.
