Gift Cards & Wishlist Links

Mani & Pedi: £80

My nails have become my trademark – if you know me you’ll know why! Generous gents who treat me to such a lovely luxury will receive personalised pics or a video of the results (foot fans, I’m looking at you…).

Full Body Massage: £80

Ease this city-dweller’s aches and pains, and get me ready to face the week!  Surreptitious naughty selfies from the treatment room will be all yours…

Lashes: £100

Treat me to every femme’s pampering dream – a lovely set of eyelash extensions! Perfect for sultry looks across the dinner table with you later on… This is a treat I can rarely justify so trust me when I say it will land you firmly in my favourites list (and of course, you will receive pictorial treats of things far more interesting than my eyelashes in return).

Decorate me: £200

I am lucky enough to be able to pursue a life less ordinary; one in which I don’t have to conform to societal expectations, and tattoos are one of the ways I celebrate that.  Give me a gift that will truly last forever.
