Stocking stuffers are my favourite gifts to shop for at Christmas, you can have so much fun with them! I also love the idea of shopping from smaller businesses and Etsy stores for them. This notepad is my favourite item I've picked out and Jess also has an adorable 2015 Calendar in her Etsy shop too. My favourite print shop, SS Print Shop expanded into a stationery this year and the Paris Pocket Book would be perfect for any Paris lover to find on Christmas Morning. I love a good candle and the UK based Flamingo Candles has a fantastic selection of scents and these matches would pair with one of them perfectly. From yesterday's post you may have noticed that I love personalised gifts too and Jessica N Designs has a huge range of ornaments that you can customise, the spoons are my favourites.

Elizabeth & Clarke is a quarterly women's clothing subscription box. Each new season you can pick one, two or three tops of your choice from a selection of five designs. They are a mix of blouses, tees and work appropriate tops in neutral colours, so they will pair with anything and everything. The price depends on how many shirts you pick $30 for one, $50 for two or $60 for three. Elizabeth & Clarke ship worldwide, free to the US, $15 to Canada & $25 to the rest of the world.
This is basic long sleeve tee with an asymmetrical hem. I will probably get the most wear out of this tee because it's a basic I can pair with anything. The material is super soft and stretchy, I would love to own more tees in this fabric.
This is a super soft knit sweater with suede elbow patches. I can totally see myself cozying up this sweater on chilly evenings, I just wish it had been a little longer in the body.
I was least excited about 'The Bronte' but when I put it on, it actually became my favourite shirt I received. It is a chiffon two tier design and there is a cut out detail on the back. It'll be perfect for pairing with a blazer, jeans and heels for a night at the bar. It was the stamens piece of the collection for me.
Overall I am super happy with my Elizabeth & Clarke box, I was impressed by the quality of all the fabrics, the tops are a steal for just $20 a piece and my favourite things is that they are all machine washable!
Thank you to Elizabeth & Clarke for kindly sending my the Winter Collection to review.
