Xmas Fair at Work

The first weekend of December consisted of a Christmas fair celebration in the town where I work. This meant I needed to dress up Christmassy for work for two days. I decided to go with clothes I already owned, so I put together a Snow Queen outfit :’D I made some snowflake hair accessories with hotglue and used a white lolita coordinate as a basis.

Winter Wonderland

Winter Wonderland is a massive magical Christmas paradise of rides, shopping and alcohol in Hyde Park. I visited it on a Sunday evening with D. The lights alone are amazing. The whole place makes me feel so festive and child-like. A place of fun for all ages haha! From tiny rides to monster rollercoasters to food and to mulled wine. I’d recommend anyone a visit! It’s open until January 6th.

The kaleidoscopic mental Fun House that D made me go on with him as I’m scared of fast rides. It was actually quite scary and detailed with many levels and a haunted house interactive section at the end, eeeeeek x’P This picture I decorated represents my experience perfectly. And my skirt blew up like that too :’D

Christmas Illuminations in London

I’m feeling old-fashioned, so lets call the Christmas lights, illuminations ;D

Spent a rather lovely dry crisp evening walking around Central London with my friend Kieran earlier this month. The streets looked so pretty and there was a calm atmosphere despite the rushing of everyone.

Covent Garden…

I had berry flavours and Kieran had chocolate flavours.

And finished off the night with a hot chocolate sitting outside, just off Trafalgar Square. Great spot for some chin-wagging and a catch up :)
