  1. 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!

  2. ah harrods christmas! i was there 2 years ago & the decorations inside were just amazing! i don’t think we have anything like that here & i felt like a little kid in a candy store marveling at everything. wishing you a great week ahead! xx

  3. Oh you’re mum does look so great in her bow tie hat and your mini pies look just perfect 🙂 I like the idea of the red berry wreath. Simple solution, bug impact.

    Happy new week Will.
    Xx. Holly
