The lead up to Christmas is my most favourite time of the year. I love winter fashion, roaring fires, candlelight and one-pot suppers. The preparation is more exciting than the day itself for me. This year will look a little different for us all, so more reason to surround ourselves with dazzling decor and little luxuries…
Can’t live without…
A scented candle or room spray. I love to fill my home with fragrance, it really creates a welcoming feel.
I choose different scents to tie in with the seasons, and at Christmas time, my absolute favourite is SKOG by SKANDINAVISK. Notes of pine needles, fir cones, birch sap and lily of the valley combine to create an authentic Christmas in a bottle.
The launch of the new Tutti cushion range. Inspired by our subtle watercolour prints, these cotton and linen mix cushions are truly beautiful and will add texture and colour to any setting. Limited quantities are available. For styling tips make sure you

The new Black Pepper & Bergamot De-Stress Essential Oil by NEOM.
I was lucky enough to receive a NEOM pod last year as a gift, and it is possibly the most used appliance in my home. I use it every day to fill the house with scent; it has certainly been a comfort over the last few months – particularly the ‘Scent to Sleep’ and
‘Scent to De-Stress’ range of oils.
The newest scent, Black Pepper & Bergamot, is intense and warming, calming yet uplifting. It really does add a touch of luxury to your surroundings, leaving an intensely calming and warming boost so you can grasp whatever the day or night throws at you.
Pop a few drops of oil into the pod or a bath and sit back, relax and unwind…
My new wool jumpsuit from Massimo Dutti. Effortlessly stylish and perfect for the season ahead.
It can be dressed down with sneakers and an oversized cardigan or ‘shacket’ for a layered look; for a more sophisticated look, throw on a pair of heeled shoe boots, statement accessories and an oversized clutch.
A classic piece that can be worn over and over again, styled in so many ways. It’s a limited-edition piece, so be quick before it sells out. £249
Christmas may be a little different for us all this year, however, it is more important than ever to feel good in our surroundings.
So, with a few quick and easy tips, you can create that festive vibe in no time at all and at little expense:
1. Pick a festive scent (candle/diffuser/home spray) and fill your home with a spritz every day
2. Dry sliced oranges for styling and decorating gifts
3. Bag some Christmassy prints
4. Hang dried wreaths and play around with festive flowers
5. Display lots of church candles at varying heights
6. Take some time to beautifully wrap gifts – they can double up as festive decor in the lead up to the big day
