Gift Ideas For Him


Bose Headphones ~ William Shakespeare’s Star Wars ~ Asos Sweater ~ Bose Sound System ~ Whiskey Stones ~ Harris Tweed Hip Flask ~ River Island Belt ~ Gentleman’s Wash Bag ~ Herschel Backpack

Just a couple of gift ideas for the man in your life.  That Star Wars book is written as a Shakespearean play and looks hilarious, perfect for the book loving Star Wars fan!  I also love that gentleman’s wash bag and tweed hip flask, very old school and Don Draper-esque.

Hope this has given you some ideas!

Christmas Wishlist!

Along with other people that have mentioned it (aka everyone), I can’t believe it’s already November! This year has flown by incredibly quickly and I can’t quite believe 2014 is almost here!
Now that Halloween has come and gone we’re officially allowed to be excited about Christmas yaaay!!

 Here are a few things that I wouldn’t mind Santa bringing to my house this year!


Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm ~ Zara Pink Coat ~ Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum ~ ASOS Dalmation Print CamiTopshop Bobble Hat ~ Topshop Grey Quilted Sweater ~ Topshop Blue Sweater ~ Grace: A Memoir ~ ASOS Onesie ~ Alexa Chung: IT

It seems I’m a bit of a fan of Topshop, ASOS, Amazon and Zara!
(who isn’t!?)

ASOS has a pretty cool Christmas gift guide on their website at the moment, with gift ideas for all the people in your life.  So if you’re struggling for some ideas check it out!  You can take a look at the gift guide here:|WW|dest|hdr1|3|giftgd

Of course my list above is just a wishlist of things I love, not a list of everything I’m expecting to wake up to on Christmas Day (though that would be brilliant)!!  There will no doubt be another list containing even more things I love between now and Christmas Day, I might do some gift ideas for loved ones as well, though I don’t want to give away what I’m buying anyone!

I’m a big Christmas fan and can’t wait to start decorating, put up the Christmas tree and buy presents for Rob and my family.  Last year for Christmas Rob and I were in Vancouver with no job, and no friends or family around so it will be nice to have some family around this year at least (and if we’re lucky maybe even the other two as well!).

What’s on your Christmas wishlist this year?

Happy Birthday to Me! …6 days ago!

Around here we like to celebrate our birthday’s for a whole week, so even though my birthday was on Tuesday I’m still allowed to wish myself a happy one today!

We didn’t get up to much for my 28th (seriously where did the last 10 years go? How am I 28…?).
We went into the city and wandered around (we seem to do that a lot), had a beer at the new Cactus Club restaurant downtown on Coal Harbour and went to see Spring Breakers (strange movie!).
It was a really nice day, and in the evening we watched Gangster Squad (Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone together is never a bad thing!) and had cake and sparkling wine 🙂  Basically a day full of things I love!
I also got a beautiful hand made birthday card from Rob which I’ll definitely be keeping for a long time.  I didn’t know he had it in him!

At work the day before my birthday, my manager gave me some pretty flowers which have made our place look so much nicer and ready for spring!  I also got a free gift from the make up store Sephora which was a mini Benefit They’re Real Mascara and a Benefit highlighter.  I’ve been wanting to try the Benefit mascara for ages so I was pumped when I saw that was my free gift, and I LOVE it.
While in the city I picked up a free drink from a coffee place here called Blenz (I mentioned it on Rob’s birthday too).  I got their delicious Belgian hot chocolate then we went to another Blenz and I got a latte which I gave to Rob!

As we were wandering around the city we saw these awesome sculptures built from different canned foods.  Here’s the Winnie The Pooh one; you can kind of see the massive movie popcorn one and Winnie The Pooh’s Honey Pot next to him.  Very cool!

Overall I had a great birthday, and have been eating cake almost every night this week so I can’t complain!  AND…I got a new purse from Rob which I’ll take some pictures of very soon and put up, and my awesome parents gave me some much appreciated money…I’m a very lucky girl!

Looking like spring finally!  Hope everyone had a great week and weekend!!
