Here are a few things that have happened to catch my eye…
Celia Birtwell Book Released 3rd October
Wow just wow. I have admired this woman for so many years, her influence on textiles alone is something so very inspiring, I have always adored her whimsical prints and noticeable love for the feline. I cannot express my desire to own this book, basically chronicling Celia’s life and achievements, I just know this book will be even more stunning in real life and the special edition version comes with a limited edition scarf and box set, I am so very tempted and have a feeling I won’t be the only girl lusting after this one.
Harajuku Lovers Jingle G
Okay this is possibly the craziest thing I have ever seen. It is yet another Harajuku fragrance release, I’m beginning to loose count of how many there has been now, which surely means maybe it’s time I stopped collecting.
But Gwen Stefani and the Harajuku brand are so close to my heart, it’s no surprises this little wonder has enchanted me. The fact it’s a Christmas themed fragrance means it’s got ‘novelty’ factor written all over it. The 10ml scent is very lovely indeed but the key selling point is the fact it doubles up as a bauble for your tree, it’s a cute keepsake to bring out every Christmas.
I’ve had a very naughty look online and peek in store, and have somehow managed to bookmark too many pretty things. There are some familiar brands that bring out a new gift range every Christmas. Bobbypin, Ted Baker, Soap & Glory to name but a few, these are always the ones I look out for, and often pick up in the January sale at half the price.
The one thing I most definitely will be asking Santa Claus for though is this irrestiabley cute ‘Let’s go Shopping!’ knitted coin purse by Miko Cat.
Celia Birtwell’s Christmas range is faultless, I have had items from her range at Boots for the past few years, so will definitely be indulging in some of these beauties. And of course will tie in beautifully with the book.
And finally a cheeky little find in Wilko. My boyfriend will probably contest the fact that we do not need a wooden gypsy cavern bird box nor a pretty doorstop shaped like a house. BUT my oh my I really do need these little beauties in my life, if only for aesthetic purposes.
