There’s no place quite like London at Christmas, for the magical & festive spirit that’s in the air & the twinkling pretty lights that fill the city with colour, here are just some of my favourite photos over the past couple of weeks that I captured in moment!
In other news, I haven’t really had much time to blog over the past couple of weeks, what with it being Christmas & all I’ve been super busy! But thought I would sit down with a glass of mulled wine, cosy on up under my favourite blanket & do a little posting! Next up will be the last of my present wrapping & then try & get an early night! (The life of an insomniac for you).
One week left to go, Merry Christmas! xoxox
Okay so Sketch, is hands down, without doubt one of the most unique, beautiful & charming restaurants/bars I’ve ever been to.. Amazing food! As you can see we got the afternoon tea which was basically a variety of little cakes, sandwiches & sweets, which was so funny because we had no idea what to expect in terms of taste so just watching my boyfriends reaction to what was tried, (he is such a picky eater, so this was pure gold) was hilarious! But seriously, anyone who decides to visit Central London; this place is an absolute must! Just the interior design alone is so breathtaking, quirky & fun. Definitely plan on taking another trip there soon as there’s more than just one room to choose from to wine & dine in!
Couldn’t have asked for a better start to my 21st Birthday. :)

Had so much fun with this! I decided this year rather than doing the typical carve your pumpkin decoration, to think a bit more “out of the box”, pull my sleeves up, & get my hands messy (or very glittery for this matter!) Happy Halloween xoxox
All pumpkins were bought from your standard local supermarket, including the little baby one which I just love & couldn’t quite bare to leave behind, so cute! & on the walk home after venturing out in the cold for a shop, I decided to pick out some pretty Autumn leaves that I could use for any decorating purposes, turns out they came in handy after all! I also digged out my paints & brushes that I keep in one too many boxes of arts&crafts (yes you read that right, I think I may have a problem!)
Music up, creative mode on, & I’m well in my element of carving, painting & glittering up these pretty little creations. Quite proud of the final outcome actually, & it was all surprisingly easy! Everyone loved them & I couldn’t have had a lovelier Halloweekend spent with family.
Looking forward to next years now! My mind is overflowing with ideas already..
What a better way to unwind at the end of an eventful weekend..?
Autumn is most definitely in full-swing over here in London! & on a rainy Sunday afternoon me & my boyfriend Daniel decided to fully embrace it after taking a beautiful Autumnal walk through the woods together, huddled under a giant umbrella whilst pouring with rain (still didn’t stop us!), spotting deer & acorn collecting. Too bad Danny is apparently petrified of deer haha!!
Later we went on to Starbucks & indulged in their Fall selection of goodies! For me, the salted caramel mocha, & Dan, the pumpkin spice latte, cinnamon rolls were a must for the both of us!
Finished by a cosy night in warming by the fireplace & watching movies.
It is nice to sometimes just stop & appreciate the little things in life, quality time spent with the ones you love most is one of them for me!
James Zabiela, Boddika & Drums of Death.. Need I say anymore?
Had the most amazing Saturday night spent at XOYO in Central London; Deep house/Electronica vibes all night in an underground warehouse club, heaven on earth!
After various antics & nearly getting lost on our way there, due to Underground lines being closed, I got to spend the night with my beautiful niece who I literally haven’t seen since she was a little squirt! So had absolute heaps of stuff to catch up on while letting our hair down into the night over one too many tequila slushies, or two, or five..
The sets throughout the whole night were absolutely wild & I highly recommend anyone who is near or visiting London to hit up XOYO, pronto!
