With Christmas just over a week away and with all our pressies almost bought, here at Amazing PR HQ we have decided its time to turn our attention to our own Christmas wishlists. So Santa, if you are reading this, any last minute stocking fillers would be very well received. After all we have been awfully good girls this year... Edwina’s Wishlist:
A Bouquet Delivered Monthly from Pinstripes and Peonies - £880 PA
Slightly decadent I know, but a beautiful bouquet delivered to your door each month is guaranteed to lift the spirits and provide a stunning statement. Pinstripes and Peonies are renowned for their breathtaking and individual designs and will even supply next year’s Christmas wreath free of charge on top of the twelve arrangements.
Les Queues de Sardines Icar Tights - £36
These tights bring a quirky twist to festive dressing. Les Queues de Sardines are noted for their unconventional and unique graphic style. Produced in limited quantities, they are screen-printed by hand on a rural farm in France, so I can be sure I will stand out in a sea of black opaques.
GelaSkins Phone Cover – Around £30
Want to personalise your phone? I mean REALLY personalise? GelaSkins makes art portable with their collection of designs from over 100 artists that can be made into a ‘skin’ for any mobile phone. For further individuality you can even upload your own photo and they will convert it to a clever little anti-scratch, anti-UV cover. I'm sick of other people walking off with my phone in meetings, so I rather fancy a bit of leopard print for my Blackberry:
Emma Franklin Gold Hippopotamus Ring - £115Central St Martins graduate Emma, designs and makes each individual piece from her animal kingdom inspired collection at her Clerkenwell studio. Her menagerie of designs are heirlooms in the making. I am particularly taken with this gold hippo ring, such a unique and individual piece it’s sure to get people talking. Emma makes each piece to order and also takes commissions, get your order in early, this girl is going places.
Coulson Macleod ‘Love Makes The Ride Worthwhile’ Limited Edition Print - £199
The simplicity of the messages in Coulson Macleod ‘Love Collection’ is what makes them so powerful. This combined with the raw, distressed finish of the typography within a vintage-style, handmade oak frame and you have a unique piece whose sentiment resonates widely, but still retains a personal touch. I have been lusting after a Coulson Macleod design for so long now, it is really is the most perfect understated declaration of love you could give...
Elizabeth and James Rabbit-Trimmed Stretch-Jersey Blazer - £665
Ok this may be a bit of wishful thinking, but this blazer is my perfect piece, casual, easy-to wear style with a luxurious twist. The olive green colour makes it so versatile; I would wear it with everything, from jeans to add a bit of glam, right through to a little black dress with biker boots to give a grungy edge. The Elizabeth and James range is designed by the Olson twins and incorporates the pair’s eclectic-chic style. The blazer is available from Net-A-Porter and as usual they have provided some great styling pointers (see image below).
Astley Clarke Evil Eye Charm Bracelet - £125
A lapis lazuli and 18ct gold vermeil chain wrap with a yellow gold, turquoise and diamond micro pave evil eye charm. The evil eye charm safeguards and protects, while lapis lazuli strengthens truth and bonds relationships, my little lucky charm for the year ahead!

Including tips on how to make the perfect cocktail, find the best vintage boutiques, walk in high heels, diet successfully, a guide to the coolest boutique hotels and best online dating sites.

Acne Pistol Boots - £415
A classic Acne boot that will keep me going for seasons to come. The high leg shaft is very flattering and the heel is the perfect height for everyday wear. This really is a boot for all occasions, so I think that justifies the expense...doesn’t it??
And not forgetting the fourth member of the Amazing PR team, a cheeky little Tibetan Spaniel who is mainly wishing for a Santa sack full of treats this Christmas.
Paragon Christmas Stocking for Small Dogs - £5.99
This all-natural stocking stuffed full of treats will keep both me and my human happy. The tasty treats will give me hours of chewing fun, but it’s also healthy and nutritious so will stop her worrying about my waistline. Bring on the Christmas day over-indulgence!
Mungo and Maud Cashmere Pullover in Chocolate - £108
It’s Mungo and Maud, it’s cashmere, it’s my colour and I am so worth it...need I say more?
Jacks Cabana ‘The Cuff’ Dog Bed – POA
Jacks Cabana offer elegant, hand-crafted designs for style conscious pets and their humans. This bed is a statement piece in its own right, so I will definitely be centre stage when visitors come over (think of the possibilities for fuss and treats!). Available in a range of wood finishes and with a clever little space saving drawer, this is slicker than your average dog bed. Better start practicing those puppy dog eyes if you want to be curled up in this in time for Christmas.
And finally, they say money can’t buy you love, but I think my human could give me a helping hand by getting me a girlfriend of my very own.
Merry Christmas everyone! xxx
