My Christmas…

Good morning readers!

So, how was it? I feel like I’ve been away for ages and I’m dying to have a good catch up with my girlfriends! That has to be a good sign that I’m enjoying Florence Finds.

I couldn’t kick us off into the post-Christmas/pre-New Year lull without sharing some of the lovely gifts I received this year and I’m hoping that you’ll be wanting to share one or two (or maybe the whole list like me!) of yours?

  • From Pete… the Monica Vinader Green Gold Quartz earrings – AstleyClarke.com.
  • It’s not quite the Macbook from my fantasy gift list 😉 but I’m loving getting to grips with my new Apple Magic trackpad mouse – I’m a sucker for new technology!
  • I was so excited to receive the Laura Mercier Illuminator I mentioned in my beauty gift guide, but it’s so pretty I don’t want to spoil it by using it!
  • I don’t normally get cleaning products for Christmas, but this was a stocking filler from Pete as I love my other e-cloths and he completely wrecked slightly damaged mine during the decorating… e-cloth + painting = upset Rebecca.
  • M&S biscuit tin
  • Now my hair has gone back to being short and sassy (read completely unsalvageable with a bobble on rainy days,) I needed a rain hat and think I’m going to look very Inspector Gadget in this trilby from Ted Baker
  • GAP socks, always.
  • Another hat which I asked for, a classic bobble, although mine is pink, of course. Accessorize Bobble hat
  • My genius Mum found me a handbag hook… Accessorize handbag hook.
  • Burning in my office right now? A Jo Malone fig and cassis candle
  • For perfect at-home manicures, Leighton Denny Miracle drops – watch out for a DIY coming up on this soon.
  • My favourite winter moisturiser… Origins Have a Nice Day spf15 face cream
  • Super thrilled with this one (after buying no less than 3 as gifts for other people!)Design*Sponge at Home book
  • And another great present – I totally missed out on Downton Series 1 and now I can catch up… did you see the Christmas special?!

Of course it wasn’t all about gifts, I had a wonderful few days at my home for Christmas Day, lots of lovely food and drink 😉 rest and relaxation and a bit of sale shopping already… more of that to come soon!

Share your favourite gifts by leaving a comment in the box… as always I can’t wait to hear what you’ve received!

Lots of ‘welcome back’ love,

Florence’s Gift Guide #5

Welcome back and Hip Hip Hooray, it’s time for my favourite gift guide… for Home Lovers. I would snap each and every thing up on this list for myself if I could so if that’s not seal of approval enough for you all, then I don’t know what is. To narrow it down slightly however, I am seriously lusting after that gold chevron stripe tray and am going to need the Design Sponge at Home book in my life this Christmas. I’ve waited long enough!

  • Any stylish home lover simply has to have this… Design Sponge at Home
  • Super stylish but generic enough for a female secret santa, Pure White Unscented Voitives (set of six) – The White Company
  • Gold chevron Zag tray – Up in the Air Somewhere (US)
  • A Cosy winter checked throw – Laura Ashley
  • Everybody loves a scented candle and I personally love the Christmas ones but christmas day is a little late to unwrap one I feel so go for this fresh fig one. (As a lover of expensive scented candles I think The White Company ones are a great compromise on price but still an authentic scent.) – *Save 15% & Free Delivery at the moment!
  • A lot of these items may seem like slightly off the wall gifts, but as anyone who is doing a house up will know, money often runs out when it comes to accessorising. Quirky home owners will love these botanical wide life cushions from Dwell, or who would have thought this stylish deer could be found in M&S?
  • I couldn’t leave this cute little white owl behind when I was shopping in M&S earlier this week and at £5 it’s a seasonal bargain for those people you need a tiny present for but want to keep it stylish.
  • Brown Dog door stop – Laura Ashley
  • A subscription to my favourite interiors magazine… Living Etc.

What do you think readers? Added any of these to your lust list?

Come back this afternoon as it’s a three post Thursday and we’ve got a very special and stylish treat in store for you all 🙂

Love,
Rebecca
