2015 Here We Come!

With 2015 fastly approaching the time has come to make the decision of what to wear. Have you chosen what you will be wearing to see the New Year in?

New Year's Eve Party

Although I will be working on New Years Eve and New Years Day I will be seeing the New Year in with my family and watching Jules Holland’s Hootenanny. What are your plans?

Christmas is Coming

Christmas, Festive Season, White Christmas, Snow

It is very true that although we are at this very moment only in October thoughts of Christmas and the festive season have already taken over. With all of the Halloween decorations around the shops the baubles and tinsel are slowing beginning to creep up on us. Christmas is coming ladies and gents.

During the festive season myself and Catherine are planning on doing a bit of a collaboration and have made a little list of what we may have in store for you. CHECK IT OUT!Β 

  • Christmas Shopping Haul
  • Decoration Making
  • Tree Decoration
  • Home Decoration
  • Christmas Cookie making (Including sugar cookies)
  • Christmas Card Making
  • Gingerbread House/Men/Women Recipe (And Eating of course!)
  • Festive Drinks Recipes
  • Christmas Cracker Making

That is quite a list and that is just for starters. There will be quite a lot going on over the festive season so keep your eyes peeled.

What are your festive plans?

Halloween Chic

With Halloween just around the corner ladies and gents I am sure there are plenty out there ready to ham it up in their latest trick or treat/fancy dress get up. If there is a party invite then I will definitely be one of them, however there is always room for a little chic for a night out on the town on this ghostly night. In an effort to glam up and bring sexy back (oh dear – sorry JT!) I have put together a couple of things that I reckon would look great for a glam night out for Halloween. Of course I have tried to stick to Black and Orange not only because a lovely burnt orange is always nice for Autumn but obviously it is the colour of a PUMPKIN!

New Look Summer

Last week I headed up to central London with Catherine for a walk around and general catch up. Feeling in a girly mood Β I decided to actually make an effort to dress like a female instead of my usual jeans, birkes and vest. Personally it made a lot of difference and despite showing my knickers to many onlookers on the St Paul’s steps I really enjoyed myself.

From City Thameslink we strolled out and up to Pizza Express for some lunch and planning for the rest of our day.

As usual the pizza was tasty and it was a great opportunity to ogle the waiter and catch up as we hadn’t seen each other for a while. When you go from seeing each other more than three times a week to about three times a month catch ups are needed.

Feeling overly satisfied and slightly bloated we moved on . . .

There were squirrels, pigeons, lovers, readers and city workers walking through the gardens of the cathedral. The atmosphere was truly vibrant but peaceful at the same time.

The wind was out in full force and although I did my best to contain my skirt there were a couple of episodes where the passers-by of this idyllic setting got a bit of an eyeful. I did however manage to get some decent photos where my skirt was not making an attempt to reach my throat!

After this little episode we were in much need of more alcohol as we felt a little squiffy!

After leaving St Paul’s we started to notice that there were many of these awesome book chairs in random places – there were a couple that I only realised were in place when on another side of a very difficult to cross road. So, there will be more photos of these awesome shows of literature across the literary city of London.

Madison, London, Champagne, Celebration, St Paul's Cathedral

We made our way over to Madison at One New Change. This is a place that I have now visited a fair few times and absolutely love the atmosphere. On that evening in particular the vibe was buzzing and we just had to pop some champagne. There is always good news and bad news but why not just go with the good.

Before we left Madison the weather did a complete 360 and the heavens opened. After it calmed down slightly we made a break for it and headed over the Millennium Bridge back to our side of the river – the best side of course!

Views of London

This is why I love London – no matter how good or bad the weather is it is truly BEAUTIFUL.

I really do love my city.

As you may have noticed I am a great advocate for the ‘South’ side of the river and the above couple of pictures are just a few to testify to the brilliance and creativity shown on the south bank.

There are few more photos that I will be posting soon but this just about sums up our lovely day out.

Do you love your city? Is it London? If not then where?
