asking for trouble

Christmas Wish List


I may not be the most organised person when it comes to buying Christmas gifts, but I am very organised when it comes to making my own wishlist! Mostly because it’s a useful thing to have available all the year round for barter and birthdays and surprise post. Here’s a few things I’m wishing for this year.

Above: Gola x Tado Fuji bag | Dandelyne DIY miniature hoop necklace |  Paperchase bunny USB keychain | Muji touchscreen gloves | Merry Happy Studios BuBear Plush


And a few things for my home: James Brown Beaufort Scale print (all his prints at Renegade were amazing) | Wyatt Design Rocket City Cushion | Camila Prada storage jar | adorable bunny ceramics by the ever-talented Jen.
