Thanks for Joining me this Christmas on our annual trip to London! Its become a tradition for Me and my Lil Sis ( yes I will be still calling her this even when we are old and grey!) to take the Day off, wrap up warm and jump on a train to 'The Big Smoke'!!
So we start our day in Covent Garden....this is what you see first as you jump off the Tube...
ITS A HUGE REINDEER!! oh and twinkling too!!Then head off to the beautifully decorated Market where you find some beautiful treasures and little shops with novelty items and handmade pretties....
...like these gorgeous handpainted glass decorations
Heres the link to the Website its called Aramica and has lots of great gifts on there!! Def worth a visit!
Right peeps time to fuel up on Lunch, something hearty we have a long day ahead of us...What better than...
PIE AND MASH!
To be precise the most tastiest chicken and Bacon pie, with buttery mash and Sweet spiced red cabbage...Dont mention Calories..we will be burning those off oh and adding more of them too !!
Now its starting to Snow heavily so we have to jump on the tube and walk to get to..
A quick visit to the Mac shop to look at the sparkly make up oh and if you are my sis buy one too!!
Off to have a look in Libertys to the 4th floor Christmas Dept then down to have a look at the cutest Christmas windows!
The theme for this one is defintely patriotic! GOD SAVE THE QUEEN!
( I'm a secret big fan of the royals..Tiara envy!)
Feel free to press your nose against the glass for a closer look...or just Click on the pics!!
The Fantastic Mr Fox..
The good old Days.... a British retro feel..
and the British Panto!
I believe these are the 2 ugly sisters?
Right Now off to Hamleys to play with the toys...
The stairwell is decorated with scenes from the magical world of Narnia with trees growing out of the walls!!
And thats my sister Laura that Mr Tumnas is talking to!!
Right now its time for a Gingerbread Latte in Starbucks, resting our legs and relaxing on the squashy sofas in the basement sitting room there away form the hustle and bustle of the Crowd
After playing with a few Glittery Mac Eyeshadows we'll head off down...
How Pretty are those Christmas lights?? Weaving in and out of the odd store we arrive for the finale in...
To find this magical scene awaiting us!!
Can you take a picture of us please?.......
EVERY Branch was lit up..wow
And we shunned the Carousel..as pretty as it was to Scream like Kids and make ourselves ill on the Waltzer instead!!!! HAHAHA!!
Definately worth watching..its very unscripted and real and we giggled all the way through!!
This is what we came back to....
LOTS OF SNOW!!
Merry Christmas to all hope you join us again next year!!
