Yes if you didn't know already, you can create a wish list on Amazon of anything you want from literally any website and you can share your list with family and friends when you have a birthday, or Christmas is fast approaching. I also use mine to keep track of clothes and accessories I have my beady eye on, so it really comes in handy as once you have signed up you get a little "a" up in the right hand corner of your screen and you just click on it to add any item you wish.
A very thoughtful personalised Calender made up of photo's old and new, some of them really made me laugh, especially the one where I had literally just given birth to Courtenay 21 1/2 years ago on the living room floor (but we won't go into that). You can see a couple of oldies on the cover, the three girls when they were little and Charlie about 18 months old, head to toe in Burberry (if I was having a boy, he was gonna be the best dressed kid in town at any cost) and the Nigellisima cookbook - loved the series so was really pleased with this. I couldn't stop looking at Nigella in this latest series with her skin like porcelain and constantly wondering to myself how a woman of 52 could remain completely wrinkle free when my face is beginning to resemble a map of spaghetti junction and she has a good few years on me yet!
Topshop jumper and M&S massage slippers. I don't really know what to say about these slippers other than, the idea is an inovative one, but they really hurt my feet! The insides are like a Tods shoe sole, full of bobbly bits (see pic) and they are not in the least bit comfy! I can think of better ways to get a foot massage!
I've wanted the Eau de Hadrien scent by Annick Goutal like forever, but buying scent for myself always feels a little indulgent unless I'm in Duty Free, so I was over the moon to get this gift set especially as it contains two perfumes (one is a perfect purse spray) but as beautiful as it smells and for me this could easily become a summertime signature, it sadly doesn't last very long, so I'd be interested to know what you think if you have it or have tested it out on yourself at any time. If you want to read a review or see what elements make up this perfume you can do so here. Laura Mercier Creme Brulee signature candle - smells utterly divine, perfect to uplift your spirits whilst on a New Year downer but I warn you, if you are dieting and can't indulge in a Creme Brulee pudding, you might well end up eating this candle, if so please make sure you blow it out first and google the calorie content.
The obligatory Liz Earlie cleanse and polish - always a winner with me, although I have been using Dermalogica lately (that's another post to come). Ministry of Sound triple CD - all my favourite tunes and a Chanel nail polish in Dragon. Lovely dark red but a complete nightmare to remove even with the use of base coat! It was that bad I painted them with it all over again, well I did say it was a nice colour!
Mother In Law did good with her present for the house this year. Yes we got a coffee machine and a not so exciting Toilet brush which was no way on my Amazon list! What possessed her, I really don't know!
Hope you got everything you wished for and more this Christmas!
