You would have thought by now I’d have grown out of writing Christmas and Birthday wish lists. I haven’t, but instead of writing lists hoping other people will buy all the things for me, I compile a small but concise list of things that I might treat myself to instead.

It is my birthday in less than a week, and aside from spending quality time with my nearest and dearest, I am looking forward to hopefully picking up a few of the following to celebrate another year on this earth (or commiserating my growing age, I’m not sure which yet)

Topshop Palm Print Pyjamas

I saw these guys a few weeks ago when I popped into the Topshop on Oxford Circus whilst waiting for a friend. I fondled them a little before telling myself I don’t need another pair of pyjamas. But having since seen Meg rock them on Instagram, I have decided I need them in my life. Lightweight enough for summer and cheery enough for Winter, it’s win win really.

Diptyque Rosa Mundi scented candle

Now I know Diptyque candles are a bit divisive; you either love them or you think spending £40 on a candle is ridiculous. Clearly I am in the first category. I was bought a Baies as a leaving present from my last job and from then I was in love. I’ve smelt the Rosa Mundi quite a few times, every time I have been in Space NK in fact and I think it will be the next one to add to my collection.

Bunnies in LA Fuck Off necklace

I have wanted this for the longest time and maybe this is the year I invest in the offensive necklace. What would my Granddad say though?

Bright Bazaar by Will Taylor

I have been a fan of Will’s Bright Bazaar blog for a while now and it is so nice to see he has published his first book! I love a home decor book as much as the next person and as I am hopefully going to be buying my first property soon (more on that later!) I need this to help with my decorating research, obviously.

Aesop Hand Wash

This is an item I’ve been obsessing over since seeing this particular pin on ‘My Future Bathroom’ Pinterest trawl. I realise that £27 is probably way too much money to spend on a hand wash but I’ve decided that I will treat myself to this and only wash my hands sparingly (joking, of course).

What’s on your current wish list?
