the lazy girl’s gift guide

‘Lazy’ as in everything here just a click away and can be delivered to your door (depending on shipping restrictions etc. of course). This could also be renamed “a list of things I’ll probably end up buying myself for Christmas and/or just because”. I’m actually surprised that I haven’t included more cat-related gifts here.

Clockwise-ish from top left:
Rookie Yearbook One by Tavi Gevinson (I ordered a copy the other day. Boom).
Lomography Baby Fisheye Camera
Naomi Murrell Pear Studs (I was actually given the Camera Studs for my birthday. So cute!)
Leah Goren Cats iPhone Case
Benefit’s How To Look The Best At Everything (click here for the UK, and here for the USA)
Paris vs New York Postcard Set by Vahram Muratyan
Peter Alexander Emergency Kit PJ Set
Status Anxiety ‘Beryl’ Wallet in Mauve


  1. I would cut off my left leg to get the Rookie Yearbook One but unfortunately getting it shipped out to South Africa would cost me the same amount as actually cutting my leg off.

      I did a dummy order for Rookie and the latest issue of Lula through Modcloth and the shipping to Australia turned out to be around the same price as the cost of the two items. Major bummer.

      Have you tried the Book Depository? I think they'd offer free shipping to South Africa.

    the baby fisheye is too cute, as is the iPhone case.. x

      I'm a sucker for anything miniature. I think the film is a bit tricky tho (to get developed etc.)

  3. OMG I want that postcard set so badly. To hang all over my apartment to remind myself how much more I like Paris than NY.
    Our Christmas lists are very similar this year (I too will likely end up buying most of my presents myself hahaha)

      They'd definitely be more decorative than actually sending-out-people postcards haha

      I love the Benefit packaging too. I currently use high beam and one of their bronzers. All the Naomi Murrell things are so cute! Having a big thing for fruit jewellery at the moment (these, and the Holly Ryan jewellery too)

      I know right! At the end of November I was looking for wrapping paper for a birthday present but everything was Christmas themed! haha. So much good stuff in PA too – I want ALL OF THE PJs!
