Call me Kevin McCallister, but I have a thing about Christmas trees. Nothing gives me that Christmas feeling more than seeing a pretty decorated evergreen tree and one of my favourites in London is the massive tree at Somerset House. Each year different brands sponsor the ice-skating at Somerset House and this year it was Fortnum & Mason’s turn to deck the House!
I very rarely go ice-skating, as I’m that annoying person who refuses to let go of the side and panics every time another skater joins the side and blocks my side path! In this case, I have two options: simply let go of the side and attempt the journey around the skating pro, or apologise profoundly and ask if he/she can kindly skate away from the side to let me through! Stressful situation!
However if you’re braver than me (that’s everyone then!), Somerset House is a great place to skate. The atmosphere will definitely give you all the Christmas feels, as you’re skating in one of the most beautiful courtyards in London, with a massive Christmas tree (did I mention that I like trees?!) and festive music playing in the background. It’s guaranteed to make the Grinchest of Grinches and the Scroogest of Scrooges feel Christmassy.

Outfit post! Not the most exciting autumnal outfit I know, but since my sister left home and got married, half of my clothes (read: her clothes that I often steal) went too, so therefore I am attempting to spend this weekend trying to build up the autumn wardrobe – sorry credit card!
I bought this suede skirt a few months ago and although it wasn’t cheapest of skirts, I think it was quite a versatile piece to buy, as the suede material can also work for autumn, despite the bright colour…I hope anyway! I teamed it up with a Breton stripped top and would have ordinarily worn a cute faux fur gilet on top but she took that too! Thanks sis(!)

Got to love Fashion Week right? The catwalks, checking out who’s on the ‘frow, the after party outfits & the biscuits. No need to re-read that sentence, you read it right; yes fashion biscuits, haven’t you heard? It’s the new thing!
One of my favourite London biscuit brands, Biscuiteers, got in touch with me, to ask if I could style their new Fashionista Biscuit Tin, which is in collaboration with style guru Alice Naylor-Leyland. The collection is based on her staple wardrobe pieces and you can find mini edible shoes, dresses and even a trench coat from designers such as Alice Temperley, Charlotte Tilbury & Charlotte Olympia.
A massive thank you to the lovely ladies at Biscuiteers for sending me the most fashionable biscuits in town with the cutest tea set! Who doesn’t want a mini edible pair of Charlotte Olympia flat shoes for an afternoon biscuit break? Now, to save up for the real thing!
