Lust Haves This Festive Season

This festive season, go all-out and spoil yourself with our little list of lust-haves… you know you want to.

Chanel Collection Libre

Nothing exudes beauty and luxury more than CHANEL. And just in time for the festive season, they have released yet another stunner of a collection. For COLLECTION LIBRE 2018, Lucia Pica adopts Gabrielle Chanel’s well-known lion icon as her talisman, capturing the grandeur of the holiday season. Starting with the sophisticated golds of the leonine colour palette, the collection allows you to explore beautiful metallic textures. The collection includes Le Lion De CHANEL – a compact featuring the palest gold highlighter (R1 090*); Ombre Premiére Poudre – four eyeshadows which each assume a jewel-like sense of preciousness (R580 each); Ombre Premiére Créme (Rose Lamé : R580); Le Crayon (Khol Noir : R400 | Yeux Brun-Cuivré : R400); Création Exclusive (lipsticks in La Palette Caractére : R1180 | Rouge Allure Velvet N° 5 : R615); Rouge Coco Gloss(Liquid Bronze: R545 | Flaming Lips: R545) and Le Vernis (nail varnish in Opulence: R455 | Flamboyance: R455). Goodness, it’s stunning!

Collection Libre CHANEL


We always stroll pass the Swarovski jewellery store in Sandton City and can’t help but do a little window shopping. Everything is oh-so-sparkly, beautiful, glittering and breathtaking. And if someone who would love a pair of earrings to go with that beautiful necklace you got her for Christmas last year, then be sure to spoil her with something gorgeous from Swarovski. There’s everything from pendants, bracelets and bangles to rings, twinkling sets, earrings and more.


Louis Vuitton

What’s the first name that comes to mind when you hear “gorgeous and expensive handbags”? Well, what comes to our mind is Louis Vuitton and lucky for us, the Diamond Walk at Sandton City Shopping Centre has their very own designated store. So, if you want to go a little crazy with the Christmas gifting this year, head to the Diamond Walk Louis Vuitton store and grab a stunning handbag, some trendy footwear, stylish luggage, stunning beauty products and more.

EyeCandy Optometrists

Summer is here and you need a new pair of shades. Let’s face it, a great pair of sunnies either makes or breaks a look (and a selfie!) so why not get on top of the latest eyewear trends at EyeCandy Optometrists in Hyde Park Corner? It’s in one of the best shopping centres in the city, so you know it’s going to be top-notch. There are many exclusive brands here, so you’ll definitely find something unique, trendy, stylish, on fleek or just full-on envy-worthy.

Sisley NEW Izia Bath & Shower Gel and Body Lotion

How about the ultimate indulgence? The type of indulgence that leaves you feeling like a million bucks and as fresh and fly as a lemon rocking a pair of trendy sunglasses. Okay, strange analogy but you get what we’re saying! Sisley Paris has just released a brand-new Izia Bath & Shower Gel and Body Lotion that we’ve been dying to try, and we thought it would make the ultimate beauty gift this Christmas. Not only does it smell like a dream, but it leaves your skin feeling as smooth as satin and soft. You can get your hands on the Izia Moisturising Prfume Body Lotion for R1 040* or the Izia Perfume Body & Bath Gel for R1 290*. A real lust-have!

Norman Goodfellows

Bring out the bubbles! There’s nothing better than celebrating with a flute or two of bubbles, and we’ve been told the more expensive it is, the better the bubbles taste. So, we went in search of some bubbly that’s lust-worthy. And we found some! Norman Goodfellows has a great selection of champers, wine, whisky, spirits, beers and more. The bubbly we have our eye on is the Dom Perignon Vintage 750ml (R1 999). Also, don’t forget to check out their festive deals here and stock up for the silly season. Just remember, whatever you do, PLEASE drink and drive responsibly.

Jimmy Choo

Just mention Jimmy Choo and people start bouncing up and down. Another heavy hitter from the Diamond Walk in Sandton, check out Jimmy Choo Sandton for stunning men’s and ladies’ footwear that’ll have family and friends lusting, wishing and wanting! They have a wide selection of collections for all tastes and styles that’ll have you looking sharp.

Charles Greig

This is your year, so head to Charles Greig in Hyde Park Corner and grab yourself a Rolex. Yes! A classic timepiece that will last you for the rest of your life. Rolex is the ultimate when it comes to top-notch accessories. Their watches are symbols of excellence, performance, prestige and innovation. Every watch is handcrafted by a master horologist. If you’ve never been to Charles Greig Jewellers, then your first visit will be one of many.
