Advent Season, Day One.

Once again, December is upon us, and this morning, December 1st will no doubt be a date of panic for many people, believing that this year (although they promised themselves they wouldn't) they have left the present shopping too late.

Chh! Chill! There really are more important things going on in the world, you have nearly a month left.

To celebrate the festive season, I at Discotheque Confusion am presenting you with your very own tooth decay free (eye) candy over the next 25 days in the lead up to Christmas. A couple of exciting guests, lots of outfits to analyse and a nice dose of seasonal sparkle, so remember to check back each day and have a peek at what's going on.

It's all very well opening up the latest issue of X glossy magazine and being greeted by a 20 page gift guide, but when it features custom made perfume and dover st market goodies that cost more than a deposit on a small flat it's not all that helpful. If you're hoping for some inspiration and funnil enough don't have the budget of Carine Roitfeld (highly likely) I have compiled four mini guides of stocking fillers and presents for your girlfriends that not only have a friendly price tag but are genuinely nice and are from places that are easy to get hold of them (if you live in the UK, mostly..)

Your gift guides are pretty awesome. I really like that one is called "all-american rich kid," hilariously brillant.
