Gift The Gift Of Slippers From Moshulu
Moshulu really do have something for everyone, as you will notice in our Christmas gifts for teen girls inspiration post! Slippers are the perfect gift to give at Christmas and there is a reason why, people love comfy feet!
I have been running around in a pair of open backed Malia slippers recently, which are great for when you need a slipper that slips on and off quickly. I found that going up a size helped ensure my heels were not sticking over the comfy cushioned suede heel edge. Something I find a lot when trying to hunt down size 8 slippers!
Moshulu feature slippers for women that go up to a size 9, which finally means no cramped toes for larger feet!
The Malia spotty mule slippers come in a wide range of felted colours, naturally I will always choose purple. Though as you can see, it really is a lovely vibrant colour and makes the slippers very easy to find!
The contrasting fluffy collar helps to keep your feet toasty and your slippers from falling off. For grandparents, these are ideal, especially with the lightweight, hardwearing soles that have a fantastic grip on all types of flooring.
Normally priced at £35, the super comfy Malia slippers are included in the 25% Moshulu sale, making them a very reasonable £26.25. With lots of other accessories included in the offer, check out Moshulu for more gift ideas!
Rock n Roll Nanny by Sally Arnold
Taking a nannying job in Paris in 1971, Sally Arnold had no idea what life had in store for her. A job made of dreams, the nanny position was for Mick Jagger’s daughter Jade! Her willingness to succeed saw her become the first female tour manager for The Rolling Stones, Peter Gabriel, The Who and Lynard Skynard.
Can you even begin to imagine the stories Sally must have?
Well, they are all laid out in her memoir which is a really fantastic read, covering 300 pages. Despite the most tragic heartbreak, Sally persevered to become an absolute legend in the music industry. Even being named one of the Women of the Year in 1997 for her charity work.
Perfect For Fans of Rock n Roll
This is a perfect read for Grandparents as they will remember the likes of The Rolling Stones, The Who and more during their heyday. To catch a behind the scenes glimpse does not happen often. Though, this book offers a wonderful insight into the world of Rock and Roll!
Head over to the Rock N Roll Nanny for a sneak peak of the book contents and to purchase a copy, priced at £13.99.
The East German Spy Mistress by Natalia Pastukhova
Featuring a quirky writing stylem this book is co-written by Natalia Pastkhova and Peter Morris. Peter adds first-hand knowledge of the subtlety and humour in the British Army, to help Natalia’s second novel stay authentic.
Set in 1955, during a time when espionage was rife, the book features many surprises and twists along the way. Mainly featured around the Army and RAF, as opposed to MI5, the time is well caputured with the use of unique characters.
What makes this book fascinating is the fact Natalia uses Cold War anecdotes from family members and former colleagues. More innuendo driven than expected, it is easy to keep up with the many vibrant characters portrayed. This is a great read for lovers of spy, espionage and corruption based fiction.
The East German Spy Mistress is available to buy from Amazon, priced at £11.23 for a paperback copy. Natalia’s first novel, The East German Police Girl is also available, priced at £10.31.
