Christmas for Her

Two weeks ago, we brought you gift ideas for your special beau this Christmas. However, not wanting to leave out the ladies, us included, here are a few stocking fillers that any girl wouldn’t mind receiving this year…

Christmas for Him

Christmas – our favourite time of year. No surprises there! You might remember the gift guide we brought you last year that featured ideas for both her and him. Switching it up a little this year, however, we’re dedicating two posts to the festive season. Today we’re paying homage to the special men in our lives with a selection of possible gifts. What will it be, what will it be?

Added to my Wardrobe: Fringed Messenger Bag

IMG_6157

How cute is this bag?!  I absolutely love it, and the fringe adds a perfect dose of quirk. The combination of chain and leather detail makes it a lovely transitional piece that I’ll happily be taking in to a/w 2014. El bought it for me as one of the many birthday gifts she gave me last week. I had the most amazing birthday this year. Me and my friends celebrated by having dinner at Stef’s Italian in Oxford Circus (highly recomended!), followed by a few cocktails at the London Cocktail Club. Probably my best birthday yet, I feel so lucky! This weekend me, El and another one of our good friends are going to hop on the Eurostar and take a trip. We decided to book a flying visit to beautiful Paris and our aim is nothing other than to indulge in its quaintness. Naturally photos will follow. For now though, happy Friday!

IMG_5780Gifts. Giving, receiving; I love the whole escapade. Over the years my friends have always told me that I’m an impossible person to buy for, largely because if I want something I often just buy it. No surprises there…! I’ve also never been one to tell people what I want. I much prefer people choosing something that they think I’d like, for I believe gifts are indicative of both how me and our bond is perceived. Gifts should also enlighten you that little bit by being things you’d love but never think to choose for yourself. My Miss Dior fragrance is a prime example of this. It was gifted to me last Christmas by my two older brothers. Until then, although I had heard a ton of good natters about it, I had never smelled it. Since, however, it has become one of my favourite scents… Thank you boys!
