Another year, another collection of my favourite things; any and all of the things that I'd happily have Santa drop in my stocking this Christmas! Simply click the titles to shop each item.
(I'm looking STRAIGHT IN YOUR EYES, big guy in the red suit.)

1. 'Haze' Heels, Gorman
These sorbet-coloured delights are a girl's best friend for Summer!

2. Dionysus GG Blooms Mini Bag, Gucci
Gucci. Blooms. Need I say more?

3. 'Tribales' earrings, Dior
I've lusted after these earrings since I very first saw them. Pearls are so timeless, and those stars add just the perfect touch of celestial edge to an otherwise classic, lady-like look. I prefer the silver-tone. I'm a silver gal.

4. 'Pillow Talk' liptick, Charlotte Tilbury
Aside from my favourite 'Very Victoria' shade of lipstick, this is my newest must-have. Charlotte Tilbury's nude perfection 'Pillow Talk' lip cheat lipliner has now been released as a lipstick in the same shade. No more colouring in your lips with the pencil every damn day!

5. 'Iconic Bags' postcard book, Fashionary
Laura Laine is one of my favourite illustrators, and bags are one of my vices. She has teamed up with Fashionary to create this series of iconic handbags featuring her elagantly elongated ladies. That pink Dior deserves to be framed.

6. 'Literally Me' book, Julie Houts
One of my favourite people to follow on Instagram, Julie Houts has released this collection of her always-on-the-money illustrated observations of popular culture, politics, society and fashion.

7. 'Provence' Linen Wrap Top, Miranda Bennett
The colour, the fabric, and the style of this top just give me life. So beautifully simple and luxurious. A Summer staple, to be sure.

8. 'Pink Christmas' cards, Kelly Smith
You have to plug your own wares somewhere.
These A5, oversized, greeting cards featuring a Christmas twist on my 'Cinderella' illustration and come in a pack of 3. Blank inside for your own holiday message.

9. 'By Any Other Name' perfume, Altaia
I have so many go-to fragrances, but upon my last visit to the beauty department I swear I smelt every perfume there was to offer, (and 57 glasses of coffee beans in between) and this was HANDS DOWN the most beautiful fragrance I have ever smelt. In my life. Their logo is also a pair of mermaids, so. Santa, can you hear me?

10. 'The Ventura' hat, Lack of Color
Because it's Summer here in 'Straya and a new hat is a must at Christmas time.
This one from Lack of Color is super classic, yet that raffia edge gives it just a hint of something special!

11. 'Opulent' earrings by Valet, Maker's Mgmt
These stunning resin earrings had me at 'Hello!' Already purchasing a pair of the most sugary sweet pink hoops by Valet, these monochromatic beauties are the next on my list! I just have to re-train my ears to carry the weight of BFO earrings. They'll get there!


It's like the game. Get it?!

Already a huge fan of my tan/silver Classic Sheffield Lady, I've just added the black/silver to my collection, thanks to the lovely gang at Daniel Wellington.
As you might already know from previous posts, my wardrobe is fairly monochromatic at the best of times.
After wearing only silver for so long, I delved into the world of alternate metals and became a bit of a gold/rose gold convert.
However, with my recent Saint Laurent purchase of the Cassandre monogramme in mock croc and silver, this watch is now my new best friend!
I live for my new bag, affectionately known as "Cassie," and she accompanies me on most excursions these days.
Until now I haven't been wearing a watch as I find that I'm unable to bring myself to clash leathers. Enter Mr. Wellington.
Now it's me, Sheffield, and Cassie. Gals about town.

I'm also thrilled to be able to pass on this special code for you guys, just in time for Christmas.
Order any time piece from the Daniel Wellington website HERE before Christmas and save 15% with the code: holidaybirdyandme
Merry Christmas, Mr. Wellington!

This year's Christmas card has been a whole lot of fun to draw!
I openly admit to being a fanatical lover of Christmas; someone who will look for any excuse to get the tree up as soon as possible. In recent years I have been pining for a pink Christmas tree, resplendent with its frosted white and gold decorations. My husband, understandably, does not share my affinity for the girly pink tree. So this year I took a leaf out of the clever Sally Spratt of The Lust List's book and decided that if I can't have one I'll draw one.

So here it is, in all its coppery, blush, glory: a babe with party curls and a pretty pink tree to call her own. As always, this year's Christmas Cards are a limited run, so get in quick!

Available in my shop here:

ALSO - as a special holiday treat - every print order* in my store from now until Dec 10 will receive a free card. YAY. Gift sorted!

*Card included with print purchases only.
