My Trip to London

We have been living in the country for 4 months now after moving from London and last week I was commuting to London for a week for some training, it felt nice to be back, nice to have some time to myself and catch up with friends and family and to see London at Christmas. I do miss it. Here are some highlights:
A large knitted 'O' in Argyll Street's Oasis store
Christmas window displays

Such an amazing collection of brightly coloured fabrics , I could spend hours in the Liberty haberdashery department
I loved these London patches by Jennie Maizels 

Amazing detail on these London Skyline cushions in Liberty
I loved looking around at all the tea sets, lots of vintage and these gorgeous cup and saucers with my initials!
Lots of sparkle in the Liberty window displays, loving the hot air balloons
I always preferred the Christmas lights on Carnaby street, a little bit more low key 
It did feel nice to get on that last and rather hectic train on Friday night and come home. To wake up and be able to spend a nice day with my family in the country relaxing. Then it was time to get my house back in order and organised for Christmas. So much still left to do but I am really looking forward to seeing lots of friends and family this week on the lead up to the big day!

I hope you all have a great time!

  1. I love London at Christmas too. Though I have to admit, I've never been to Carnaby Street to see their lights. I should do though, as I've heard they always do something a little bit different.

    My favourite place to go is Covent Garden though and not just at Christmas. It does really come alive at Christmas though. It's strange, as I can't stand the December crowds on Oxford Street but I don't mind being jostled in Covent Garden. It feels like a friendly kind of busy, as opposed to the kind of busy that might just mow you down without even looking back. Last December, my mum and I booked into London serviced apartments and we had a weekend in Covent Garden. And I can honestly say that we came home feeling like we'd had a week's holiday.

    There's something really special about London at Christmas.

  2. Carnaby street lights are always that little bit different you're right.

    I do avoid Oxford street too. Far too packed with crazy shoppers x
