London Calling

Saturday was Jon's and my four year anniversary and we had to planned to go into London Town for the day. Jonathan surprised me with tickets to go see "The Book of Mormon"- which by the way was AMAZING! So so funny! We decided to go visit the embankment Christmas market first- which was just insane. Note to those going: do no go on a Saturday!

It was insanely busy, heaving with tourists and families and we couldn't see a thing on any of the stalls. We did manage to get a cheeky hot chocolate and catch a glimpse of a seriously awesome Santa (although the magical illusion and wonder was shattered by his wheeling and dealing of collecting £2 for photos- would the Santa real do that?...hmm)

Dress- Miss Selfridge
Boots- New Look

This is the second time I have worn this dress by Miss Selfrdige. The first time was for the work Christmas party and it it's just perfect for the festive season with all its sequins and beading. I look around at so many 'party dresses' this season -!: Not mention my eczema has been horrendous this winter and I was in desperate need of a dress with long sleeves for a cover up. It is quite the pricey dress but such a worthy investment with its delicate and detailed bead work and sheer loveliness! I think I might wear it on Christmas Day if I'm feeling fancy!

I always forget how incredible london is sometimes. I will admit the city loses its sparkle and allure commuting to and from it everyday for work, but when you take a moment to look at some of the sights you still go "wow, Big Ben really is huge isn't it?!".

  6. Oooh you look gorgeous!!! I love that dress! And I'm so glad you loved Book of Mormon. It is hysterical and totally inappropriate in the best way. I curse the fact that I am neither a black woman nor a white boy for the fact I can never be in it! I want to come visit you! Also, I just remembered I need to write you back. GAH.
