KARA backpack by

Meet my new best friend... the KARA backpack!

I've always loved a backpack. Even when they were the key marker of a nerd. Even when wearing the straps on both shoulders was uncool. Even then, I still loved them.

Tuck Me In

If you're going to fly First Class and have the luxury of full flat beds, designer sleep suits and toiletries;  you might as well go that extra (air) mile in the name of luxe.

You may be provided with duvets and pillows, but how about you bring along your own silk quilt? Too much? Nah, I don't think so.

Imagine snuggling down in your flat bed 35,000ft in the air with a Swash Jangala ivory silk crepe de chine quilt. Lovely. Definitely a far cry from the static charged fleece blankets you find in economy, and prettier too.

Look, it even comes with leather harness for easy carrying. Smart.

Midas Touch

I'm having a gold phase at the moment, and I can only wish of having Midas' power of turning stuff into gold.
However, I'm pretty sure it's a skill that can't be learned, so I will just have to make do with buying my own gold trinkets.

These are a few that are on my list:

Top Row (L-R):
-Medallion Earrings and Locket by House of Harlow 1960
-Garden Key Necklace by Alex Monroe
-Candy Ring by Monica Vinader - In fact pretty much any gold ring from Monica will do.

Bottom Row (L-R):
-Big Single Feather Necklace by Alex Monroe
-Key Ring by House of Harlow 1960
-Sylvie' Beaded Necklace by Fiona Paxton - It's not new, but I don't own it so it stays on the list of 'Wants'.
-Large Pyramid stud style ring by Kenneth Jay Lane - Actually, I can check this one off my list as I have it. Thanks Sale at Net-A-Porter.

So that's my gold wish list so far, but we are only three days into the New Year.
I am kinda shocked I like the House of Harlow stuff considering it is by Nicole Richie - whose appearance in The Simple Life repulsed me and put me off her for life, but her jewellery collection is not bad...

Anyway, my hands are about to drop off from the cold so I am going to stop typing now.

Head Gear

This may not protect my brain should I be in some sort of automobile accident, but this is the head gear I want to be wearing.

After my mini obsession with Luella headbands, I've now moved on to this velvet Marc By Marc Jacobs number which is currently on sale at good ol' Net-A-Porter.

I just found an old Euro Millions ticket in my drawer - maybe I've won!
I don't even need the jackpot (although that would be nice) - I just would like £63 for this headband.
