Gifts

More than any physical gift, I love experiences- be it simply the company of someone fascinating, or (if I'm lucky) having my love for food being indulged by being taken out to dine at one of my favourite restaurants. For that reason, I shy away from ever asking for or expecting any gifts. However, for those that love to spoil, I can't deny that I am overjoyed to receive some things. If you would love to give me something and you would like some ideas, read on!

If you'd really like to surprise me or if perhaps we're too far away to meet, I do now have an Amazon wishlist and can provide a postal address for third party items on request.

If you really want me to go weak at the knees, there are some places in London that cannot fail to make me happy and make dream date locations.

My love for lingerie knows no bounds. Being blessed with a rather large bust means that I'm relatively difficult to buy for- but if you'd like to drape me in lace and silk I can recommend using my measurements and purchasing from brands like A'zaira Intimates, Agent Provocateur,  and Aubade.

My favourite flowers are peonies, but I love most traditional British 'cottage garden' flowers.

I wear Marc Jacobs Daisy perfume and very little jewellery, but I love delicate gold pieces.

treats

Obviously food is my obsession- and while I do of course love a box of chocolates, the chef in me is happiest with something I can cook with. A warm loaf of fresh sourdough bread, or confit du canard, or perfectly fresh fruit, or fine parmiagiano reggiano... 

I could never choose my favourite wines but I do love Brunello, Condrieu, and trying new champagnes. I also adore good quality coffee.
