Hats for the Holidays : Beanie Baby.

1 / 2

Tonight I went out at 6pm to collect my son from a playdate and it was freezing....
definitely time for hats & scarves, hoorah!!

I love a woollen hat, I couldn't wait to wear mine quite honestly, I have several favourites right now but each year seem to need one or two more....and, surprise, surprise, I do appear to have quite a few in varying shades of grey!

I love a beanie, especially one worn loose at the back of the head, it seems to suit me more....
and I just love the snug feeling of wearing a hat.

And of course, there are no bad hair days in the winter hat season....
and that's enough of a reason to wear one all on its own ;)
I am currently looking for a black beanie & also a colourful one....
here are some of my current favourites.

Eating Out For Christmas.

It's that time of year again.....
Christmas drinks, Christmas lunches & dinners, office parties & catching up with old friends who possibly you haven't seen for way too long. maybe even this time last year!

It's been a while since the good ol' crazy days of office parties, hangovers & red faces around the coffee machine the next day.....these days it's slightly more civilised but rather lovely lunches with a little sparkle & glitter, some champagne, good food & great conversation.

My oldest friend P - who I miss madly & only really see once a year, way too little. 
Two great girlfriends who I haven't seen for at least 3+ years....we've been trying to get together all year long, ridiculous isn't it?!

This December I will be catching up with EVERYONE!!
And actually, it's a total treat to go in town for lunch, rather than just shopping. 
Shopping is lovely this time of year but it's also totally hectic in town...you need to know exactly what you want, those Christmas shoppers can be brutal!

Venues have been taking Christmas bookings for some time now....
it's a very good idea to book as early as you can. 
I have used online booking service Quandoo recently to book restaurants locally & in town, very useful as it allows you to check availability & book instantly. 
It also operates a loyalty system so you can save up points & use them when you book in the future.

Lots of places offer a wonderful Christmas afternoon tea - Claridge's (with its Christmas themed finger sandwiches, mini Christmas pudding & Christmas themed pastries) &, my favourite, Brown's Hotel on Albemarle Street with its "festive afternoon tea" & Christmas carols played by their resident pianist.

Happy Eating!
