Dear Santa, 

if there is one thing that I can ask for this Christmas, it would be an iPhone 6 Plus. I am on my phone for both work and social media so much that it would be really amazing (and less straining on my eyes) to browse on a larger screen.

My favourite item right now in THE FIFTH COLLECTION is the Hermès Constance, it is a classic collector's piece and it's in a neutral colour that would go with absolutely everything.

On top of everything else, I would like you to grant all the wonderful wishes from the team and make them all come true. That's all.

Dear Santa,

The item I’d like you to give me this Christmas from THE FIFTH COLLECTION is the Louis Vuitton VIP snow globe featuring the hotel porter with a colourful parrot and suitcase in hand.

Coming from a family of hoteliers, this piece reminds me of the best parts of the industry I grew up around, all while representing the world of luxury goods I’m currently a very happy part of.

Other than that, I want a long vacation at my favourite hotel in Italy where I can switch my phone completely off for at least two weeks, wake up when I want and spend the rest of the day reading books by the sea. I’m thinking this is sooooo not going to happen anytime soon!

Dear Santa, 

I've been a very good girl this year. I've started taking better care of myself and gone for exercise classes (by way of spin classes at CruCyle). This Christmas all I really want is for you to bring me my true love. So, Santa won't you bring me the one I really need, won't you please bring my prince to me? 

Otherwise, you can get me the lace cocktail dress from Oscar de la Renta. At the very least, I know I can rock the frock while going on this search for my true love's kiss!

Dear Santa,

It's hard to believe but I am painfully shy. Yes, it is true. I'd rather stay in the corner at a party or stay at home and watch Netflix all day long rather than go out and meet new people or explore the city. My wish for this Christmas, especially now that I am based in a new city (i.e. London), is to have the courage to go out more often, meet new people, explore the city and make new friends (Actually, I am still unsure about this last bit. haha). 

Also, Santa, I've been very good this year. If there's one thing I need or want, it is this Shoe Polishing Kit from Dior. The reason? Because why won't anyone want a Shoe Polishing Kit from Dior?! haha. It is sleek, chic and, now that I'm fast approaching my autumn years (I jest), I would like to have something worthy of a gentleman.
