Birthday list

So it's my birthday on Friday. Another year older, another wish list on the go. Being a material girl by reputation, the requests have been flooding in asking what I'm currently coveting. So to give you all a helping hand with your present buying, I've put together a quick list - and it ended up being a long list. Still, we're entering a new season (soon apparently, although we're still waiting for some sunshine) and so my birthday has always been a good time to stock up on some summery key pieces. Plus a few baubles which will see me right for a few seasons.

And for a little pampering: I've tried a sample of the Glycolactic mask by REN and loved it, so have been hankering after a bottle of this for a while. And as for the bath oil - anything by Diptyque is guaranteed to please. Some new pyjamas and a deckchair in the garden will be just the ticket for a morning cup of tea.

Top row, left to right:
Arty gold-plated glass ring, £185 from Net-A-Porter by YSL; Fitted denim shirt, £30 from Topshop; Striped boatneck top, £29 from Muji (from the men's department, but fits well in a small size); Gold woven slippers, £30 from River Island
Middle row, left to right:
Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask, £30 from REN - order off their website for 10% off your first order, plus four free samples of your choice; Amber statement necklace, £45 from Galibardy; Navy and white striped deckchair, £45 from Rosablue; Simple cog necklace, £65 from Enelle; Suzy summer top, £83 from French Connection
Low row, left to right:
Diptyque precious oils for body & bath, £40 from Space NK; Summer stripe pyjamas, £45 from Hush; Fantasy fabric blazer, £79.99 from Zara; Dreamy drape knit, £67 from French Connection (back view)

There are also some books I'm after - Design Sponge At Home, Once In A House on Fire by Andrea Ashworth, plus the new Beach House album "Bloom" and tickets to see The Count of Monte Cristo at The National Theatre. And if you don't fancy any of the above, then the complete box set of Grey's Anatomy would make my day. And, and, and - no, that's the lot.

Happy birthday to me.
