Ho ho ho … and merry merry to all

Effortlessly stylish, cool, contemporary. The View was Exhausting is the read of the season.

It’s all centred around the love affair of international A-list actress Win Tagore and her jet-setting boyfriend, Leo Milanowski. Their love story is the talk of the town … but it’s as fake as Hollywood. Being a woman of colour – she’s of British Indian descent – Win has to work hard to control her public persona. What better than a millionaire playboy to fake a little good news. With each PDA, the headlines shift back in Win’s favour. What’s in it for Leo? The good press draws attention away from his dysfunctional family. So it’s a win, win really. Until … as great holiday reads demand … the two really fall for each other, secrets are revealed, and all hell breaks loose. Sharp, sexy, fabulous. Headline, R410

You are never too old for a Christmas stocking. And these, which you can have embroided with each family members name, are perfect. Neutral cotton, with slate grey embroidery and finished off with a leather loop, they’re incredibly chic, but have also been created to be big and strong enough to hold fairly substantial gifts. R165 each from baskiti.co.za





Shimmer through the festive parties … this Kitten Bliss Eye & Lip Set is a specially-curated collection for eyes and lips in Stila’s universally-flattering shimmering nude shade. There are two eye shadows and a lip gloss. Swipe, sweep, blend, glow! R570 from woolworths.co.za

Lustre quartz vase, R969 from elevenpast.co.za

Our firm favourite when it comes to scented candles are those from Glasshouse Fragrances. Triple scented, there’s a new limited edition Sugar Coated range, and it’s all we want for Christmas. Perfect for those with a sweet tooth, they’re doused in rich notes of creamy vanilla, butter caramel, nutty praline, offset with citrus and sugared fruits. Top of our wish list is Movie Night (caramel popcorn and choc tops), Sweet Enough (rich salted caramel) and All The Red Ones (we all love the red ones the most … and this is a combo of our favourite crimson lollies … think big, bold pomegranate, guava, raspberries, cherries and jam). R1299, Exclusive to Woolworths.
