A Festive Day Out

Simon and I headed out for a morning of Christmas decoration shopping and cinnamon bun eating yesterday. It's a good combo. I haven't felt all too festive this year as I've been busy working on my homeware business but we finally had a day off together to enjoy a wonder in town. First up was Liberty to have a look at their Christmas shop. I bought a few amazing decorations to add to my collection and I stared longingly at the HAY products in the homeware section. 




I went to pick up a Michael Rosen book as I absolutely love his poetry and then headed to Fabrique to prove that their cinnamon / cardamom buns are the best in London. 



I wore my new Annie Haak Three Star Silver Ring and blue Star Friendship Bracelet which felt super festive. I have become seriously into stars and planets recently (I've been designing lots of new patterns featuring space themed motifs) so I love Annie's star collection so much. I think they'd make wonderful Christmas gifts as they're so reasonably priced too. 



After a tea and a bun sampling we realised that we had only had sugary food all day so headed to Fortnum and Masons to pretend to be posh and pick up a savoury treat of some sort. Whilst there I also shopped for a Christmas gift for a friend and coveted over the ridiculously swanky decorations and crackers. 




What are you doing to get in the festive spirit this year?

    1. Ha! My mum bought some of their Christmas crackers last year (the ones with the origami kits inside) and they were so much better than regular ones and surprising not that expensive!
