1. Harrods do the whole Christmas-lights-on-a-building thing best.
2. My Mum looks adorable in her bow tie hat!
3. I need to watch my advent candle carefully as it burns really fast.
4. After baking a Dala horse-shaped cake last week, I’m now lusting after these super sweet Dala horse stamps by Yellow Owl Workshop.
5. My festive wardrobe needed a little more polka dot action, so I invested in a new bow tie!
6. Homemade mini mince pies taste better than deep fill mince pies.
7. This print not only looks great but it was designed to help raise money for repairing Hurricane Sandy damage in NYC, too.
8. A simple winter berry wreath brings stacks of festive charm.
9. I love the use of line to decorate this tabletop range.
10. This iPad case from J. Crew needs to marry my iPad before the year is out!

    Man … you got to love Harrods for Christmas! Such a classic store for the holidays. I loved it when I visited London a couple of years back in spring and just love it ever more with the festive touch.

    Your mom is so cute with that hat! Wish you both a very Merry Christmas Will. It’s absolutely fantastic to see the heart warming relationship you have with your mom.

    You know I’m polka dot obsessed … So wanting that bow tie and that ipad case! The problem: I need an ipad first!

    There is nothing like gorgeous Christmas decorations to get in the mood. I love to visit the city to get inspired with all of the window decorations.
