All I want for Christmas: Amanda’s list

For those not on a budget…..

What I’d really like for Christmas is a Porsche like Saga’s. You remember Saga from the TV series The Bridge? Slightly odd Swedish police detective who wears leather trousers and drives around very fast in an olive green vintage Porsche. I want one (despite having been very rude about Porsches in the 90s) but it’s very unlikely I’ll get one.

So instead, if anyone’s reading, I’d be happy with a subscription to my favourite magazine, The Gentlewoman at £16,or to the new Gin & It magazine from the folks who brought us the excellent Fire & Knives food magazine (and you can throw in a bottle of The Botanist too, officially my fav new gin). Or there’s the pleasingly odd-ball StrangeBeautiful Library Of Colour Volume 2 nail colour set at about £65 available from Cult Beauty, in fact I’d go for any of the StrangeBeautiful mini collections, which are all inspired by art and culture (I already have the Dickensian one).

And while we’re on beauty a bottle of the delicious, jasmine soaked Nuda from Nasomatto would be nice as I am currently obsessed with it and you could buy it (at about £130) from our favourite new perfume store Bloom in Spitalfields.

If anyone’s feeling VERY generous, I’d like something (anything really)  from The Shop At Bluebird, but particularly this Swash placement print coat at £700 (I can dream….).

Or maybe a pair of Grenson’s Grace Chelsea boots in cherry suede at £200, since I’ve got such fabulous wear out of my other Grenson purchases (yes, there have been a few…). I am also drawn to the sumptuousness of the deceptively simple looking Lucza Grace blouse, which is made from silk so thick it is indecent, it would be a real hard working treasure for anyone’s wardrobe. And to finish, a couple of cheerful rings (again, take your pick, there are so many beautiful ones to choose) from Pebble London, I am keen on the silver bobbles at £15, or the ruby red daisy one at £25….

What about you? what are you hoping for this Christmas?
