Christmas Drinks amongst the Luxury at Becker Minty

Such an enjoyable time was had by all at the Becker Minty Christmas Drinks and Shopping Night.  So pleasant to browse at one’s leisure through their exquisite collection of gifts….something for everyone !!! even for those who want for nothing.  As usual the wine…Cape Mentelle Sauvignon Blanc Semillon was perfect and the canape delicious.

My favourites were the new Neom Organic Scented Candles, the very English Floris perfume and for complete indulgence the handmade French velvet slippers by Matthew Cookson.  Indeed the Very Best Of Everything.

The Dressing Table launches in style at Potts Point Bookshop


This was a very stylish book launch indeed. The room filled with stylish people  sipping lovely Gigi sparkling and listening to Clare Press impart her Top Ten Unfashionable Things she would like to bring back….like….A proper cup of tea brewed in a pot or Writing and posting thank you letters.  This was followed by some of the assembled sharing their own experiences….where a little bit of style went a very long way!!!

It was just as well that it was such a rainy weekend as I settled in to actually read this gorgeous book, not just flick through as I had expected.  It is beautifully written, and the photography is exqisite. Some of the gems inside include –

Seven Ways to Work Out What Suits You and Shop Accordingly

Adorable Presents to Give

How to Give the Perfect Tea Party at Home

Nine More Ways to Get the Holiday Feeling Without Leaving Town

I think this is really one of my most favourite books ever however I do have a confession…I actually bought it for my daughter to celebrate her completing her first year of university.  She hasn’t had more than a fleeting glance at it yet but I am giving it back I promise.
