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 🙂
