W103 Sempé table lamp, £754, monologuelondon.com

2 On Sundays, you’ll likely find me gazing through the window of Monologue in east London. I love its edit and I want this table lamp. W103 Sempé table lamp, £754, monologuelondon.com

Verner Panton for Verpan wool Mirror throw (198cm x 130cm), £222, aram.co.uk

3 My stay-at-home winter survival list includes the following: Netflix (check), a glass of something chilled (check) and a warm winter blanket. I have my eye on this upgrade in a classic Verner Panton design. It’s soft (I find some fabrics too scratchy for comfort) but will also look suitably stylish when folded on my sofa.

Laurent-Perrier Grand Siècle Iteration 22 Magnum, £284, thefinestbubble.com

8 I once attended a Laurent-Perrier champagne tasting event where its Grand Siècle Iteration 22 was served from magnums. It was really memorable.

Aesop Sublime Replenishing Night Masque, £93 for 60ml, aesop.com

12 I was given a sample of Aesop’s night mask when I dropped by my local store to stock up on essentials – hand cream (I couldn’t be without it) and body wash (geranium leaf; it smells divine) – and I have to say, I awoke the next morning with plumper skin. It could have been a trick of the light, but I would like a jar of my own to find out. Aesop Sublime Replenishing Night Masque, £93 for 60ml, aesop.com
