Jingle Bell Rock

Christmas for me is all about my family and now thanks to you it feels as if my family has got a whole lot bigger. I do hope that you have had a wonderful Christmas, that your days have been spent full of merriment and laughter, too much food and crappy presents. From the bottom of my heart I would like to wish you and your families a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS ❤ ❤ ❤

I have spent the last few days not getting nearly enough sleep, walking around villages at night singing carols, stuffing my face at my parent’s friend’s house, midnight last minute shopping quests, waiting in queues to pay for goodies, panicking that Amazon wouldn’t deliver my Grandma’s present on time, family visits, meals and Christmas parties. Today for Christmas Day, we all dressed up and went to visit my 95 old Grandma who is suffering from dementia and now has to be in a care home. We took her out and all went out for a three course turkey lunch in a nearby Harvester (bring out the stretchy pants!!!!) We had a lovely time all together, just my mother, father, gran and sister. Now having come back home, we have cracked open the bubbly, have opened our presents and sliced up a very juicy ham that my mum spent far too long for my liking cooking!

So, what have you been up to this Christmas Day? Did you celebrate Christmas on the 25th or the 24th? Turkey or BBQ? I hope that whatever you did you had a great time!

One of the great things that I love to do in London over Christmas and which I go to every year is Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park! Its so beautiful, and has an ice skate rink, wooden German villages selling mulled wine and waffles, large ski chalets for apes-ski and lots and lots of rides. We decided to go there the other day to really get ourselves in the spirit of Christmas, because lets face it, Winter Wonderland is like Christmas on Red Bull…

I wore an incredibly Jingle Bell Rock outfit for my trip. I found a great pair of H&M gold sequin glitter trousers that I thought would be perfect for Christmas, as they were gold and just so festive whilst still being pretty casual. I decided to wear them to Winter Wonderland with an over sized Red Wool Polo-Kneck Jumper. The gold and the red are such great Christmassy colours and together they really compliment each other: the red makes the gold richer and the gold tones down the garishness of the red. I loved the way the soft wool material really contrasted with the texture of the shinny sequins.  To make this look more casual I wore gold toe capped booties that I got from an amazing London based online shoe store called London Rebel . As some of you may know I had some silver metal capped sneakers and I just wore them so much, so when I saw these gold booties I knew that these would be perfect to jazz up any outfit and would be a great winter equivalent for my sneakers. Wearing these black faux-leather boots really added some rock to the jingle! I accessorized the outfit with a beautiful adjustable murano glass evil eye bracelet that was sent to me from a really talented craftsman and reader of My Girls On Tour, from Istanbul, called Abdurrahman Erkmen who designs and creates beautiful one of a kind pieces of jewellery using precious stones. Let me know what you think 🙂

    1. Thank you so much! I am pleased you like the pictures and the blog, it really means a lot 🙂 I can’t travel all the time, but do I have to get dressed everyday so I guess combining the two means that I always have something to blog about ❤ Wishing you a very Merry Christmas, Abi xxx

      1. So glad you had a nice Christmas! I know the food is just amazing, I mean to actually be able to have chocolate before breakfast is amazing and shouldn’t be confined to just one day a year! 😉 I am so glad you liked the sequin trousers! Hope you had a great New Year too! ❤ Abi xxx

    1. Aww you poor thing :(( I am so sorry your broke your foot like that! When can you take your “boot” off? I hope you had a lovely Christmas though? I do hope so!!! I broke my arm playing tennis once (slipped over on a wet court) and aside from the pain it was the having it in a cast for so long which was the hardest thing. I am so glad you liked the pants and I do hope that you make a speedy recovery! ❤ Abi xxx

      1. Thanks Abigail. I can take the boot off for a bit and at least, I don’t have to sleep in it. I was so relieved not to have a cast. Take care and Happy New Year xx Rowena

  1. I was reminded of a part from my favourite movie Eternal Sunsine of the Spotless Mind (what a surprise, eh?)
    Clementine: [Clementine has dyed her hair orange] You like? To match my sweatshirt, exactly.
    Joel: Ahaaahhhhh! Ohhhhhh! I like it!
    Clementine: You do?
    Joel: You look like a tangerine!
    Clementine: Hmmm, Clementine the tangerine…I like that.

    1. Hahahha this made me laugh! I have never seen Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind but will look forward to now! I was told once the difference between Clementine and Tangerine but I just keep using them interchangeably and misappropriating the term 😉 Hope you have a wonderful Christmas, with lots of Satsumas!

      1. I have been on the beach off and on the past few days and it has been unseasonably warm after a few cold weeks (for us!). I had to deal with awful temps at the beach in the winter such as 25 degrees Celsius. Not good for Christmas! Ha ha!

      2. OMG I am so jel right now! 25 degrees is a like a really hot summer here in the UK! It sounds amazing and a great place for Christmas holidays!

        I hope you had a great New Year too and that 2015 has started off well for you?

      3. The warm trend continues but we are expected to drop to a freezing 15 Celsius! I will try to survive by thinking of the folks such as yourself who brave far colder conditions. Ha ha!

        New Years started off a bit rough (work will do that) but I am sailing through! Did get a few days of good surf so who can complain? I am sure you had loads of fun!
