Is it just me, or is anyone else just not feeling it this year? 2020’s events have literally drained the life force from me, and I’m left feeling pretty blah. Hence, my slightly early review and publication of insanely good luxury gift ideas for Christmas. Guaranteed to turn the most used, soggy, trodden-on tissue kind of moods into one of shiny-eyed wonder. Phew. Put the wine and sleeping pills down, all is not lost. At least not until the launch of Corona-3. But hey, I’m more of a live-for-the-moment kind of lady anyway.
