Subtle hints aren’t working anymore, so let’s move on to the next best thing.

Christmas is just around the corner – 20 days if we’re counting. My Christmas tree went up on Tuesday night followed by the Hayward (because I can finally call it the Hayward household) household premier of Garfield’s Christmas Special. We don’t just put our toes into this time of year, we dive on in head first and nothing is done by halves. We’re also meeting up with friends to go and watch a double feature of Elf and Christmas Vacation tonight – can we all just take a moment here to bask in the glory that is Christmas movies? Yes? Okay, infinity minutes of basking begins now.


Shopbop has been my old faithful since I bought my first pair of Jeffrey Campbell Clogs in 2009. I wore the hell out of those babies, but have since parted with them – I think someone in Melbourne bought them from me in a sniping bid on Ebay, but that’s testing my memory more than I would hope for on a Friday afternoon.  I have one thing, okay two things on my mind: Christmas Wish List and also: Christmas in general.

C’mon, let’s get all festive together!

I have teamed up with Shopbop to curated my perfect Christmas list – trust me, curating a Christmas list is testing my strength 100 per cent, but the fun part of this is I get to play Santa. I am giving one of my lovely online family members aka, you, a $100 voucher for you to use to buy the perfect present this Christmas.

So what’s on my list?

  1. Sarah Chloe: Eva Engraved Necklace
  2. Marc By Marc Jacobs: The Slim 30mm Watch
  3. Kate Spade: 17 Month Planner
  4. Rifle Paper Co: 2015 Calendar
  5. Rebecca Minkoff: Mini Mac Bag
  6. Frends: Taylor Headphones
  7. Jonathan Adler: Pop Bourbon Candle
