If you can’t make a little Wishlist at  Christmas time, when can you ? Some personal treats and then some things that will brighten the home.

Maybe you will see some things here that will be helpful as a guide too. A lot of the items are from brands that I already know and love.

We all need a Christmas jumper don’t we ? I’m kind of leaning towards a more subtle kind this year and love the slogan ones, like this sweater from Oliver Bonas.

I first tried ila products ( 2 ) when I was in Cornwall earlier in the year. They smell amazing – I haven’t tried the cleansing bath salts here though. Probably just what is needed in the run up to the festive period.

I’m a fan of British knitwear brand Quinton Chadwick and love the colours in this fairisle bobble hat ( 5 ). What do you think ?

Do you ever use a planner ? I still do as well as my phone diary and love a bit of bling .. as you may have noticed. So, naturally this diary from Kikki – K caught my eye  -they have the most adorable stationery. My girls love the shop and just might be getting some of their pens from Father Christmas.

Matt & Nat make an amazing selection of bags. They’re all vegan and eco friendly. The Odelay clutch here has a strap so really suitable for an informal drinks do or a night out. I never used to wear anything dark blue but it has really grown on me and love it now.

I’ll be honest – PopBands ( 8 ) are all over this house  – we wear them all the time but you can never have enough of them. They are great as stretchy bracelets also. They have taken off massively and I see them in shops everywhere. Great stocking filler.

  1. Candle  – Etta French. 2. Pineapple Beaded Cushion – Laura Ashley. 3. Mini Terrarium – Urban Outfitters. 4.Flamingo Snow Globe – John Lewis. 5. Tea Set – Burleigh Pottery. 6.
    Liberty Print Roberts Radio – Liberty London. 7. Scissors – Nest. 8. Brush Cup – Pentreath & Hall.

Recently I tried out on of these Etta French candles ( 1 ). The winter scent fills the room but not only that you get a very pretty surprise piece of jewellery inside the wax. Maybe greedy but want to try out the other ones. Love that they aren’t tested on animals and have no nasty chemicals hidden in their ingredients.

Of course, if you follow my instagram, you will have seen many succulents in different forms on there. One thing I really need to try out is a mini terrarium like this one from Urban Outfitters ( 3 ). They look really cool on a desk or window sill.

I have such a strong fascination with flamingoes and snow globes – so naturally kind of fancy this pretty glass ornament from John Lewis ( 4 ) – especially as she’s wearing a crown. It’s really pretty, don’t you think ?

I recently wrote a blog post for Burleigh Pottery, giving some ideas on mixing and matching their china at Christmas time. If you fancy a read – you can here. Isn’t their Asiatic Pheasant set ( 5 ) gorgeous ? Really nice for a tea party or even to serve some mulled wine in a quirky way to your guests.

For ages, I have been eyeing up these Hay Phi gold carbon Scissors from Nest Store ( 7 ). The shape is lovely  – and a really stylish way to wrap up gifts. Might have to treat myself !

The brush letter pot is by Pentreath & Hall ( 8 ) . I have a different colour way with an L on the front but they’re quite addictive and fun.

Have you noticed that there’s loads of pinks and greens ? Seem really drawn to this combination at the moment  – you will see more on my living room tour blog hop next week .. all will be revealed on Tuesday at 11 am.

Hope you like my selection – you can check out any of them by clicking on the links under the wishlists.

Is there anything that has caught your eye here ?

So much loveliness, you’ve got great taste. The cat bangle is cute and the Kikki K fab. I’ve had my eye on the terrarium and the flamingo snow globe (although quite why I need the latter, I’m not sure…).

Love these types of post as you spot things I never seen in the shops. I have to have that jumper – seriously? How cool?
