Coming up with a wish list is the easy part. Cutting it down to my ‘must-haves’? Now, that could be tricky.
First up is the first thing I do every day. Have a coffee. Specifically an espresso.
So, if you’re going to have one then have it from one of the best coffee machines on the market.
This DeLonghi Prima Donna ESAM6620 bean to cup coffee machine is a wonderful, and clever, piece of kit.
With ingenious design and patented innovation. It enables consumers to make 15 bar restaurant and coffee bar standard coffee in the comfort of your own home, in an easy to use and simple way.
And it’s the best start to the day. Every day.
Now I’m out of the house I want to creat the correct impression wherever I go.
Wearing Tom Ford Extreme eau de toilette will certainly help. This intriguing fragrance surrounds the senses with a radiant and palpably succulent rich blend.
In other words, you smell great.
It doesn’t matter where you’re going, it never pays to be late. With that in mind get a watch on your wrist that does the job and makes you look the part too.
The Franchise silver two-toned chronograph dial bracelet strap watch from Diesel does just that.
It fastens with a bracelet strap and has a silver brushed chronograph dial with gold numbers, hands and textured bezel detailing.
Now, I’m ever the optimist that sunshine will return to these shores. So I like to be prepared. And I like to be prepared in the best possible way.
These Tommy Hilfiger brown tortoiseshell rectangular sunglasses are perfect for the beach, the street or even a wedding.
Their brown-tinted lenses and subtle silver stripes in the corners of the brown tortoiseshell frames are a great match with a navy suit and white shirt.
And what outfit is complete without a stylish pair of shoes?
The Paco Milan black patent ‘Madrid’ formal lace up shoes take some beating.
This classic example of footwear goes with any smart attire. And loses none of its impact.
And, as the ever grateful guest, it’s always a good idea to present a gift. What says ‘Thank you for inviting me into you lovely home’ better than The Only Way Is Essex board game?
You can play the board game based on the hit TV show and put your TOWIE knowledge to the test as you race to be the first player crowned King or Queen of Essex.
