Dorothy Perkins pajama set; Tarte Amazion Clay Blush in 'Exposed'; Penguin Classic mug; Q&A 5-year journal; Wagamama cookbook and DVD; Alphabet Bags washbag

It's that time of year again. The holidays are approaching and everyone's asking you 'For god's sake, what do you want this year?' I'm not one of those people who umms and ahhs and eventually says 'Oh, I don't mind. Get me whatever' because I'm too picky and receiving a terrible gift is never fun, for either party involved. So I've been mulling over what kind of things I'd like and come up with a few options. I might just start referring people to this post whenever they ask me what gift I want off them this year. 

First of all, I'd like to state that no, I don't generally wear really cutesy matching nightwear. I am, admittedly, much more likely to be found in some novelty print pajama bottoms and an old t-shirt. However I'm in my 20s now so maybe that's the time to start thinking about more sophisticated sleeping garments? (Probably not, but these pajamas from Dorothy Perkins are adorable anyway.) 

Speaking more practically, I could do with some new mugs. The hazards of student life and moving about a lot in the past year have left me with a lot of chinaware casualties. Any of the Penguin Classic range would be much appreciated, especially since I'm down to my very last mug. Despite being a student, I am actually a reasonably good cook. Yes, I do resort to microwave meals and takeaways occasionally but, most nights, I manage to whip up something passably edible for myself. Lately I've been on a massive stir fry kick and I've been craving Wagamama like no other, so their cookbook might be handy. Or any cookbook really. It's like real life Tumblr food porn at your fingertips. What could be better?


  1. I never know what I want for Christmas and my family aren't ever satisfied with giving me vouchers. Love what you've picked though, especially the wash bag and the pjs :) x

  2. Cute stuff!
    I always said that once I'm an "adult" I'll wear classy matching PJs (preferably silky). So far, still wearing a tank top and fuzzy snowflake pants to bed every night...
