30th November 2015

Here it is. Part 2 of the Christmas gift guide, this time for the homelovers in your life. First off, I have to highlight a fab homewares company which is new to me called Urbanara where I could literally buy the whole store. If you are on the look-out for beautiful throws, ceramics, bed linen or accessories, this online store has it all. And it’s prices are really affordable. I will be snapping a lot up this Christmas!

Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without this elegant Luxe Drinks Trolley from Oliver Bonas but with a hefty price tag, this might have to wait till next year!

Next on wishlist is this elegant copper lamp, a must-have for any chic home office. If you can stretch to the budget of the Palmeral tea set from House of Hackney, consider this is an investment buy. And finally don’t be put off by the name of the post-poo drops from Aesop. They fill the bathroom with a gorgeous smell after use.

Christmas Partywear for Girls

Naturally in mid-November, it’s always at this time that I am scourimg the shops for festive partywear. Not only for the festive season but also for my daughter’s birthday which is just a few days before Christmas. There is no end of choice of partywear for girls, it’s just the boys don’t have much on offer!

One label I absolutely love is Belgian brand, Morley which is featured above and you can buy from here. Not just for partywear, Morley has such a good selection of stylish girlswear and boyswear, I just can’t get enough. This is such a beautiful simple dress for day or for the festive season.

Check out new brand Little Circle which sells select designer brands like Morley and allows you to ‘recircle’ by selling select second hand designer brands through their platform.

Without trying to be too much of a magpie, there are a few sequin numbers that get my vote from Monsoon and from online department store, Smallable. I am in love with this shirt dress (2.) from Cos which only goes up to age 6-8 but is just super chic.  Here’s my top picks of partywear for girls this Christmas. Enjoy!
