Holiday Gift Guide-No. 1

When I started my holiday gift guide, I knew what my number one item was going to be as I have been coveting this item for a while, but today I went back onto Colette for the photo and it is no longer there!

The photo above is the mens version of the Martin Margiela watch skeleton necklace which I found on Oki-Ni for £279. The womens version is a bit smaller and has a couple silver chains holding on to the charm for £180.
If my boyfriend is reading this, I hope you can find it!

Happy Holidays! xoxoxo

Holiday Gift Guide-No. 2

Perfume must be one of the most purchased gifts for Christmas, it is incredible how many sensual celebrity filled tv adverts you see while watching a holiday movie leading up to the 25th.
Diptyque doesn't need any fancy advertising as there is a somewhat of a cult following for this brand mostly known for their quirky and very expensive scented candles with scents like Mimosa, Freesia and Figuers.

This year, they have come out with a compact solid perfume so you can discretely touch up your scent before going out to that office Christmas party.
Buy at Space NK or John Lewis £28

Holiday Gift Guide-No 3

This Liberty canvas shopper is more of a gift wrap idea than a gift. I suggest filling this with the Sartorialist's book as a thoughtfull gift for that fashionable friend.
Liberty canvas shopper: £14.95

Holiday Gift Guide-No. 5

As a recently converted owner of a Mac I know how overboard people can get with andorning their shiny macbooks and ipods. This is one of the cutest macbook carrying cases I have seen as it can easily double as an oversized clutch on a night out after work. They also have small crossbody ipod carrying cases.

Expect a very sexy, sophisticated and Parisien collection as Tim Blanks reported. This collaboration as one twist to it, the H&M made lingerie will be sold in Rykiel's shops as well so you can go  away carrying a Rykiel bag instead of a plastic H&M!
