Christmas in London

On Saturday I dragged Alex around London to soak up all the festive spirit. It was the most beautiful day I’ve seen in a while – sunny, clear, and very cold. The best kind of Winter’s day! We tried out a new brunch place called Nell’s in Chelsea which had a beautiful interior, but the food was a bit average.

A long wander along the King’s Road with lots of nipping into shops led us to Harrods where the sun started setting (at 3:30pm, sob), but it created the most beautiful light. Have you seen the Harrod’s Christmas windows yet? I’ve made it my aim to see them every year. This isn’t my favourite year (I preferred last year’s train carriages). However I absolutely LOVED the little mice scenes. They were adorable and must have been so much fun to make. We finished off our trip with a Mille Feuille (him) and a gluten free brownie drowning in chocolate sauce (me) in Patisserie Valerie. Pretty much the best day out in London ever!
   

How was your weekend? I had my second hot yoga class on Saturday morning (which is also, I discovered, a great cure for a hangover!). I seem to ache slightly less this time. Have you tried hot yoga? On Sunday I went for a long walk with my granny in Kent, then watched BBC drama, The Missing, which I was gripped by! x

    I've lived in London for over ten years, and still haven't been to Harrods. Feel like I should make the effort to see the Christmas windows! Sounds like you had lovely weekend x

    I love London at Christmas time. Well, at any time really, but especially at Christmas.
    Hot yoga sounds interesting! x

    Such beautiful pictures! Saturday was such a gorgeous day. I'm addicted to The Missing too! It's so sad but so gripping. I've never tried hot yoga but it sounds interesting….

    I didn't even bother going inside but the windows are lovely! I've heard Fortnum and Mason and Harvey Nicholls (both around the corner) are worth a see too x
