Christmas is coming and we are having such a fun time. On the first we set off to Ikea to buy our Christmas tree and then by the second we had found enough ball-balls and tinsel to decorate it. As I am writing our living room is filled with lights and Christmas cheer and as the days are getting shorter I am loving snuggling at home in the warm and watching films, going to winter markets and seeing all the beautiful lights in the center of London. Have you got your decorations up yet? What do you like to do in the build  up to Christmas?

We have been shooting, going to brand launches and store openings and tomorrow we have the most amazing event ever, Tie Break Tens, a day of tennis featuring some of the world’s top players. I have a massive surprise coming for all your tennis lovers and I can’t wait to reveal everything to you tomorrow!

But before I tell all, I first wanted to share some pictures from my last trip to Spain, one of the places where I played a lot of ITF and WTA tournaments when I was playing tennis on the world tour. My parents and I did a bit of a road trip through Spain and one of our final destinations was Valencia. Valencia is a beautiful city, filled with grand buildings, large squares and orange trees. It is not only the birthplace of Paella, but it is also home to the most amazing science park, the location for my outfit shoot. I have written about Valencia and the traditional festival Las Fallas, where massive caricature sculptures are burnt after weeks of fireworks, bangers and the beautiful flower procession – where women from all over Spain, dressed in traditional costumes, come to offer their flowers to the Virgin. It truly is a special place and the science park, designed in the shape of whales and fish bones is mesmerising!

Spain has so many beautiful cities, if you could visit one where would you go? If you have been, which one is your favourite?

For the past few days the sun has been coming out and life has been just that much more fun and love that much more beautiful. All the hipsters are sunbathing in the park, with short skirts, shorts and shades. To top things off I’ve just bought my tickets to the Holi Festival of Colours for this summer. Festival season is on the horizon, I’m super excitted. All the flowers are in full bloom. So it feels right, to celebrate all of this with some hippy chic.

I’ve combined my tasseled  suede jacket and a handmade artisan bracelet from Tierra, with a white floral crochet dress. Quick, someone find me a tree to hug.
