    I can’t think about planning Christmas until December begins. November is for pumpkins, conkers and comfort food but as soon as December 1st strikes (it’s on Monday, people!) I’m all over the magic and sparkle of Christmas. If you’ve not bagged yourself a copy of our December issue yet, you’re missing out on our super Gift Guide – 50 Perfect Presents for under £50. Michela from the Style Team has scoured the high street and found some extra special, purse-friendly Christmas presents from some of our favourite shops. Here’s a sneak peek for you…

    seasalt homewareI’ve got their best selling Sea Folly Jacket and now I want their super soft bed linen. Hailing from the West Country, I’ve always been a fan of Cornish clothing brand, Seasalt. Last summer they launched their bed linen collection and are slowly expanding their homeware to include towels, cushions, notebooks and more. There is also an exclusive collection from the renowned Leach Pottery of St Ives. Each print is designed in house and they have a lovely, hand crafted quality. They are also launching some super exciting things for SS15 so stay tuned and I’ll update you in the new year.
