This weekend, we went Santa spotting. The first place we went was Westfield in White City, where the staff were charming and the experience was great – they incorporated the childrens’ photos into a 3D movie, and then ushered them into a quiet room with Santa.
The second place was the local primary school Christmas fair. It was a heroic, home made effort and I enjoyed it hugely.
The third place was at The Commander Bar in Notting Hill, where I was utterly charmed by the most magical grotto (in the library upstairs) I have seen – see below. I was even happier because, unlike at all the big department stores, we were the only ones there. So if you are nearby on a Sunday afternoon and fancy seeing Santa in a twinkly wonderland, I can’t recommend it highly enough.
No photos from the weekend (have been a bit sick), but today I am wearing a cream/ beige coat (old, from Australia), floral Zara scarf (old), black cashmere Primark cardi (not seen), black Heattech top (not seen, but so vital!) burgundy/wine New Look skinny cords (too tight when I bought them, but now they are quite comfortable. Not an excellent fit, but I still haven’t seen a richer colour.), tan Mimco ankle boots (old, but the TopShop Anarchy tan boots are a great alternative).
