Shop My Favourites

one. // the birthday trip to Paris. You can catch up with our trip here, but to summarise, we had the most gorgeous time - it's one of my favourite, most meaningful and sentimental places in the world.

two. // feeling Christmassy and Christmas markets.

three. // shopping for gifts for others (see my bumper Christmas gift guide if you're still doing yours!), naughty online shopping for myself, Black Friday deals and so many lovely things in the stores.

four. // homemade ile flottante - we had it in Paris and I've been trying to recreate the exact, thoroughly superlative recipe - utterly delicious. Also poached pears, chocolate panettone, festive pain perdu and Angelina hot chocolate. I could easily give each a bullet of their own, I'm infatuated.

five. // these patent heeled ballerinas. I picked them up over Black Friday weekend and I love them.

six. // some superlative beauty finds lately. M&S 'gel' nail polish (smooth, fast-drying and a week and counting unchipped!), Huda Beauty's latest eyeshadow palette (so creamy and blendable - I did a look with it here) and Avene's radiance serum are but a few examples.

seven. // watching Masterchef the Professionals together. F and I aren't big TV people but we'll happily sit down to watch this. I'll say it now, my money's on Laurence ;)

eight. // John Lewis couldn't find my online order with their usual speedy service so gave me a bunch of roses to apologise - such a lovely gesture, and they're looking beautiful on our table.

nine. // these cosy Boden pjs.

ten. // Christmas market season - we've got a couple lined up and I'm really looking forward to them :)
