Dear Father Christmas,

I have been a very good girl this year. I have remained manicured, pedicured and styled at all times, yet have managed to do so on a very firm budget. I have cooked organically and eco friendly-ly and have cut out the use of plastic bags.I upgraded my sunscreen to a factor that hardly even lets in the sun, and increased my budget for face creams, cleaners, toners and serums just like the lady at Clinique told me to! I have learnt a new language and am learning another, I started a blog that I think others enjoy and I have given back to the community. I have cut my hair every six weeks, I married a wonderful man and I have swapped my heels for flats only when absolutely necessary. I have swapped my love for high fat ‘Kettle Chips’ and cheese boards, for low fat frozen yoghurt smoothies, and although I just haven’t been able to give up Champagne I have cut out the sugary and beautifully brightly coloured cocktails that I so love (most the time!) I must be honest, I am still working on my addictions for Italian food, collecting pearls in all their forms and buying black dresses endlessly. I promise to be better at this in 2011!

So, with all this in mind, and knowing you are a incredibly busy man at this time of year, I feel it should be very helpful to reference the below list for Christmas this year. The fabulous and highly reliable Tamara Mellon has got it covered…..

Happy sleigh flying – your mince pie and sherry awaits you. Thanks Santa!

  1. I hope Santa is listening because clearly, you’ve been amazing this year! Which language did you learn (Cantonese)? Which are you learning (Afrikaans)?

    Trust me, Italian food will do you no harm – enjoy it! Let’s hope Santa has a meeting with our husbands and Tamara!

    Merry Christmas lovely!
