Team Ahlan!'s Festive Wish List
Yves Saint Laurent Cocktail ring, Dhs900, Pink-Fudge.com
“This season I’m collecting Yves Saint Laurent bling as seen on Danni Minogue. I’ve already picked up one of these in green from Pink Fudge and now I’ve asked Santa for the blue one.”
Sarah Hedley Hymers, Group Editor
The Amazing Spider-Man DVD, Dhs85, Virgin Megastore
“I saw this in the cinema and really enjoyed it, although I’m not a fan of seeing movies in 3D, so I’m looking forward to watching it again without looking ridiculous wearing silly glasses.”
James Gardner, Group Junior Sub Editor
Rodo Clutch, Dhs8,250, Harvey Nichols
“There is something extremely sexy about burgundy which is why I fell in love with this cute clutch. It’s just the thing I need to make a style statement at my Christmas party.”
Lekha Menon, Senior Features Editor, Masala!
Oscar De La Renta Earrings, Dhs1,630, Harvey Nichols
“I love statement pieces and I’m an avid collector of Oscar de la Renta jewellery. These chandelier earrings are just what my accessory closet is missing this holiday season!”

Apple iPhone, Dhs2,199, www.store.apple.com/ae
“My 2013 New Year resolution is to make a photo diary; I’ll take an image a day – what better way to do that than with a shiny new iPhone, so please Santa, I was a good girl in 2012.”
Emma Verlander, Group Picture Editor
Stud Collar Denim Shirt Dhs159, New Look
“I absolutely love this denim shirt! It can be worn for most occasions and it’s just my style. The gold studs are so fashion-relevant right now.”

Salvatore Ferragamo Bag, Dhs6,142, Harvey Nichols

Pink Faux Snake Skin Diary, Dhs350, Harvey Nichols
“I’ll be scheduling 2013 in style with this little pink number! It’s girly, but edgy and way cooler than those boring black ones you get at end-of-year functions.”
