It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Posted In: Life | Life in Norfolk

Christmas is without doubt one of my favourite times of the year. Everything just seems so magical. All the lights, the music, the bubbles, the sparkles… What’s not to love?

I was in London with a friend a couple of weeks ago and we tried to do as many Christmassy things as possible. We had afternoon tea at Le Chalet, which is this super cool pop up rooftop restaurant in Selfridges on Oxford Street. The scones were the best ones I’ve ever had! I’m really tempted to go back next weekend. Nom! We also had a wander around Liberty’s Christmas department. It’s basically an entire floor of gorgeous decorations and fantastic gift ideas. You absolutely must go at some point before Christmas. We also went to the Southbank centre to check out the Christmas market. Oh and we had drinks at Duck & Waffle with the most amazing view over London. My kind of weekend! 

I’m back in London next week and I’d love to do some more Christmassy things. So if you have any suggestions, please do share!

    It's so nice soaking up the Christmas atmosphere! I didn't get to sample the scones at Le Chalet, as I had breakfast instead. They look so yummy though!
