New Year, New Calendar

Time to get organised for the New Year, and I'm loving the pin-board style approach to this letterpressed calendar, US$20, from Linda and Harriett's Etsy shop:






But I've also got my eye on this birdy desk calendar, US$12, from Valentina Design's Etsy shop:



As always with Etsy, if the individual item I've linked to has sold out, go to the seller's shop where you'll usually find more listings of the product.

Street style: Ellen on Sloan Street

A wee birdy told me that Ellen, 30, wears white t-shirt by A.P.C, a sample knit top, jacket by Jil Sander, clutch by Miu Miu, shorts by Nanushka, black opaque tights from H&M, yellow knee-high socks from H&M, and black shoes by Pierre Hardy for Gap.

Last minute Christmas treats

If you haven't started already, now is the time to start digging into all the seasonal goodies. There's nothing cosier than watching all those ultra-cheesey Christmas specials on TV by candlelight, whilst feasting on some warm Christmas pud. Here, my favourite sweet treats in London:

Ultimate Christmas pudding, £32.95, from Harrods. Packaged in a black ceramic basin and matured for six months.

Brandy butter, £3.95, from Harrods.

Meg Rivers Christmas Cake and tin, £38, from Cath Kidston. £5 of the proceeds from every sale of this award-winning cake goes to Marie Curie Cancer Care.

Hope and Greenwood suitcase, from £24.95, from The Conran Shop. Each suitcase is filled with a selection of nostalgic English sweets.

And I'll be heading to Konditor & Cook this weekend to pick up some of their infamous handmade mince pies. Apparently Nigella fancies them very muchly. Merry yum yum!
