Red silk chair & vintage kelly from Libertys rxhibition Catherine b

What would you like for Christmas? World peace would be a start, a brand new bathroom with czech & speake fittings or perhaps (another) vintage kelly bag? Ok, maybe will  just settle for some Liberty vouchers…

My Christmas wish lists used to be as long as my arm, perhaps even longer. As a child, Santa (my parents) bought me everything I wanted. Sounds idylic, though it does not necessarily make for a happy adult. Sooner or later, life hits one on the head,  and we realise we can’t always have what we want and that’s just how it is.

The full proof recipe for a Happy Christmas
Lower expectations and join the royals in their gift exchange habits. Apparently our British royals,  shun expensive Christmas gifts, opting instead for humorous, home made or very low key items. The queen, who simply detests waste, has a preference for the ‘practical’ & inexpensive. This results in a lot of clear, plastic £11.00 umbrellas. What could be more practical if you live in the UK?

As I got older, and (technically) wiser, my motto became the old cliche, that christmas is for giving. Honestly, generosity is so good for the skin, creates a warm glow that no beauty product could ever hope to match. This year expecting many more charity donations for Saving the Elephant and rescuing baby elephants. Please, show your generosity and Join me to stop the senseless hunt for Ivory. Spreading awareness is also important, do help by posting on your facebook page. Thank you!

    Was good to see prince william doing his bit of good and using his position for something positive. I think that bbc show about tigers in the house is another great show highlighting the plight of wild animals. it is heartbreaking and heart wrenching to see those tiger cubs. but at least it is getting some attention.

      Don’t get me started on tiger cabs. Tigers are now pretty much extinct and will be very hard to reverse what has been done. Why we also have to abuse their cubs is another disturbing issue…

    Gosh was a bit surprised to see a Lizze K featured! For us it’s mostly about the kids (still a very restraint amount compared to their peers) but some of the adults in the family expect material gifts more which is slightly embarrassing. No doubt you’ll receive lots of happiness and love over the festive season!

    Thank you for a very splendid blog dear Sarah! Donations for elephant saving already send but will try twisting the arms of work colleagues. Duchess of Cambridge was at it as well. Are you by any chance related? 🙂

    I get to spend some family time this year, as my youngest sister is coming up to her daughter’s for Christmas, which is only an hour away from me. And while I would LOVE a vintage Kelly, taking my sister and niece out to Christmas tea is an excellent alternative!
