Winter Wonderland with Farfetch

imageIt’s getting pretty cold over here in London and it still hasn’t snowed, but since the beginning of December things have started to feel and look super festive thanks to all the beautiful Christmas lights and  Christmas markets that have sprung up over town.

 I was really excited when Eleasha, a lovely new friend of mine and founder of Duchess of Fashion, invited me to join Farfetch and some of London’s coolest fashion bloggers at Winter Wonderland, a giant fair set up in Hyde Park with rides, the most amazing wooden winter villages, shops and of course mulled wine, waffles and hot chocolate stands.

This really was the best way to start off the Christmas period not least because I truly love Farfetch. All of you fashionistas definitely need to check them out if you haven’t done so already, because they are literally revolutionising the way people shop for designer items.  They bring together hundreds of the world’s best independent designer boutiques, so you can shop and fine some of the most beautiful pieces all in one place, making it so much easier to find great looks at the best prices. Sounds pretty good to me! 😉

The day was so much fun, I met some lovely lovely fashionistas who’s blog are absolutely amazing, including Vikki the founder of Style and Minimalism, Camila Carril, Ellie Adams who vblogs & blogs at TheEllenexdoor and Sarah Monaco from I Bleed Fashion. We had so much fun walking around, taking pictures of Minions, drinking hot chocolate, freezing our socks off in the beautiful Magic Ice Kingdom, getting a little freaked out in the giant fairest wheel when the carriage started swinging in the wind and of course skating and in my case evil laughing at the poor people crawling round, holding on to the side of the rink, trying not to fall over on the ice. Awesome times! And awesome squad gaols for that matter…*Taylor Swift you ain’t got nothing on us! HA!

For our day out I was pretty sure it was going to be cold so I wore a long khaki green coat, thick scarf and green lace up heels, that I have worn so many times they are now not only stylish but also comfortable, even though they didn’t look it. Eleasha made me laugh when she coined the phrase “fashion before reason” in reference to my look…Yes, that’s me haha fashion before reason! I wore my favourite Farfetch accessory, the Michael Kors  ‘Jet Set Traveller’ shoulder bag, that I chose because I thought that it would be perfect for winter, for chic little outings and for adding a little bit of colour to my winter outfits.

I shared a lot of my day on my Snapchat (Abigail Royston) but unfortunately because I didn’t save it (a lesson I never seem to learn), it has now gone, but I did do two video edits with the app Tipit and luckily I do have some awesome photos of our day taken by Preston Photography, that are way better anyway that the snaps that I took anyway 🙂 I loved seeing London in the glistening sun from high above in the fairest wheel with Vikki and Ellie and the magic ice kingdom was beautiful beyond words, with the most incredible ice statues carved into ogres, fairies, castle walls, thrones and wildlife. Stepping in was like going through the wardrobe in Narnia.  I never usually go on rides or go into fun houses when go to fairs because I am scarred of rollercoasters and I think that showing any interest in doing things will encourage people to push me onto one of those insane drop machines or those star shaped wheels that make people fly, so doing those fun things, off the beaten track and away from the churros and candy floss stands, made the day extra special.

I hope you are all having a wonderful week too, thank you for your lovely comments.

    1. Thank you :))) Yes it was so much fun! I love meeting up with fellow bloggers! Have you met up with any yet? The photo bomber is really funny, we spent a good couple of minutes juggling balls with him, so I guess now with this pic he is part of the blogging squad! Ha x

      1. You know what…Sadly I haven’t. However, on some forums I have met some people and we are good friends. I guess sometimes you can get a vibe from people just from their writings and having some common interests does not hurt either!

        One day I am sure I will stumble upon someone out there. Being that I live in the theme park capital of the world…I am surprised this has not happened eons ago.

        Have a great night out by the way!

        Happy New Year!!
