London, UK 🇬🇧. Every year London becomes one of the most festive city to go to during the holiday season. Many big shopping districts, landmarks and restaurants have impressive displays of decorations. A true Christmas wonderland ❤🎄.
ᴘʜᴏᴛᴏ ᴛɪᴘ ✷ this shot was taken in front of Sketch, a restaurant/bar famous due to its gorgeous interior and fun toilets! Victim of its success, Sketch is usually always full and you have to book online if you want to go for food or tea time. However, I personally heard that it is not worth eating there and only having a drink and checking out their cool toilets is enough 😂.
And no it didn't snow in London! So I added some in photoshop to make it look more festive ☃️.
Found a carousel whilst skipping around bath the other day and it was the prettiest thing everrrr,

Shout out to my number one, @thebodyshop Matte Lip Liquid in Windsor Rose. 😍😍 ‘English rose’ is often a term given to me... probably due to my ghostly pale skin and ridiculously posh accent, so this colour just seems appropriate 🌹 Such a gorgeous colour, doesn’t dry my lips out, applies soooo easily and 100% vegetarian 🌿 A guilt-free, transitional lippy which will 100% have it’s place in my travel backpack 💋 #ad for @thebodyshop#thebodyshop#thebodyshopbondst
@gyozaguys delicious bento box meal 😍 3 types of gyoza’s: vegetable, chicken and prawns served with a cold serving of udon noodles and kale salad. Personally would refer it if the noodles were warm 🤭 Other than that the gyozas were amazing, freshly made ☺️ RATINGS: 3.8/5 ⭐️
There’s no time like the present 🎁
How’s everyone doing on the Christmas gifting front? I still have to pick up a few things which is stressing me out a bit... but silver linings, Alix is taking me to @bicestervillage this weekend to get my Christmas gift and I’ve never been before ✨
Oh & I’m having festive celebrations with my fave gals from uni tonight which I’ll feature many mugs of mulled cider & a mince pie or three 👏🏻 Looking forward to a totally Christmassy week 🎄

The infamous door at The Ivy in Chelsea 😍 I imagine they'll be taking down this wonderful Christmas house installation soon so if you have a moment, maybe stop by! It is my favourite installation by them so far! 💕
Paramount is a well established, reputable chain of Lebanese restaurants originating in Toronto. Apparently, the franchise now spans five different countries including three branches in London. We popped into their Paddington branch for a quick bite and to see if the London restaurants could compare with its Canadian cousins.
The restaurant was quite limited in terms of seating and, although casual, the decor was very pleasant and the service attentive and quick. The food was also fresh and of good quality. My highlight was the grilled halloumi salad and their speciality spicy hummus. We also sampled the tabbouleh, meat sambousek and the chicken wings for starters and quite happy with all of them. For mains, we ordered a variety of wraps - sheesh tawuk, lamb shawarma and kefta. My only gripe was that the bread was not fresh at this particular branch, (although in the Kensington branch they freshly bake all their bread on site). However, all the dishes were tasty, filling and decent sized portions, which I washed down with a zingy concoction of lemon, mint and ginger juice and finished off with a round of mint tea. Although it may not have the reputation and following of it’s Canadian counterpart, I would definitely recommend @paramount_lk for a quick, tasty, reasonably priced meal in Central London.

I love capturing videos everywhere I go and the fact I can shoot, edit and share online with Adobe Premiere Rush CC saves me so much hassle. It’s an all in one app where you can create and share videos that have a professional touch , the free Premiere Rush app is available from the app store with the link in your bio.@adobevideo#madewithrush#ad
Happy Wednesday lovelies 💕 if you’ve seen my insta stories you’ll know that last night my family was burgled. Some horrible people smashed the back door in and stole every Christmas present they could find. With an act that probably took no more than a few minutes, it’s changed not only our Christmas but really has altered our lives. We’ll never forget what happened. So this is your Wednesday message to be kind, to think of how actions always have consequences and to show a little love to drown out the darkness this world so often suffers. Be safe. Be happy. Be kind ❤️🌍
