christmas gift guide for her

I love to receive gifts (and to send them to myself.. all hail black friday!) in the last few weeks I've gathered some seriously cute stuff so I've compiled it into what I'll loosely refer to as a gift guide (but basically I just wanted to show you some niceness.)

tinsel jumper | h&m

as it's the festive season I feel like it's absolutely appropriate to dress like a walking christmas tree. cue me buying this cropped jumper that's pretty much chopped up tinsel in knitted form. itchy? yes. fabulous? definitely.

the bow shoes, well I just bloody loved them. chunky heels for minimal falling over and shiny enough that every magpie within a ten mile radius will be gunning for them.

snake heels | topshop
custom compact* | estee lauder 

I've needed some basic black heels for an age and these topshop numbers are pretty dang comfortable! I like the hint of texture and I'm hoping these will be great for dressing up one of my casual outfits for on night out. can't go wrong with shoe-gifts in my book (even if you do buy them for yourself.)

..and how amazing is this compact? estee lauder have teamed up with prop designer rosy nichols to create these wicked little customised compacts. I adore the quirky abstract element- so much fun getting my sticker on! they're having a pop up event at boxpark london dec 10th from 6-8pm. rosy will be there offering personalised wrapping and customisation on beauty buys- if snazzy make up is your thing go check it out.

cards | tiger stores
iPhone 6+ case* | casetify

I was so relieved to upgrade my mobile this year I decided to get the biggest thing on offer- the 6+ and holy hell it's a handful. I don't regret it for a minute but it's been pretty difficult (actually near impossible) to get a cute phone case. thankfully casetify have solved all my cover issues and I can finally ditch the basic black for this tropical beauty... pow! I think a new phone case is pretty safe bet for a xmas gift too, just make sure it's the right size! 

does any one else find it hard not to buy tiger greeting cards? I figure they're handy for last minute card giving (I always forget someone) and well they're so sweet I'd be happy to get a few.

fake tan | james read

sweaters that make you feel like a human teddy bear- this can only be a good thing. this snugly little number just went into the sale and well I'd gladly hug anyone that bought me this for xmas. 

I'm also an advocate of a little bit of fake tan gifting especially in the winter (yep, so pale right now) this james read face set is perfect if you want to a natural glow and I can confirm it does not make you smell like biscuits - winning! 

and last but not least music- in my case vinyls for my crosley record player! my brother introduced me to this absolutely beautiful album and I've not stopped playing it since. I always think albums or concert tickets are a great gift (even for men who are impossible to buy for!)

would you buy any of these..?

back soon
