London Christmas Diaries

London Christmas Diaries

London at Christmas is just magical and I always love to make a trip to see the gorgeous window displays, decorated shops and of course, Bond Street with the famous Cartier & Chanel decorations - to name a few. 

Top tip - get there early to grab a coffee at Ralphs (Ralph Lauren) and sit outside taking in the holiday magic.

Another holiday addition this year which I absolutely had to see is Claridge's Christmas Tree, this year they have collaborated with none other than Louis Vuitton, creating a 5.2 meter tall Christmas Tree made entirely from iconic Louis Vuitton luggage trunks. I created a reel showcasing it which you can watch here.

I was SO intrigued to find out if the handle was created with real Vachetta leather, and if so had the biggest urge to whip out our Water & Stain Guard to protect it! ☔

Next up, no trip to London would be complete without a visit to Harrods - iconic in every sense and even more special during the holidays. No matter how many times I visit I always get lost & find something new!

This year I wanted to try something a little different and made reservations for Breakfast at Tiffany's which is a permanent cafe inside Harrods. 

It's served as a set menu with the most delicious fruit salad to start, followed by a warm (square) croissant. For my 'main' I chose the American Pancakes topped with Strawberries - absolute perfection!

With unlimited fruit juices, coffee & fine teas we tried an assortment and can confirm that the Oat Milk Lattes were gorgeous and I may have had more than one to ensure I was sufficiently caffeinated for shopping!


Overall it was a great experience & something I'm really glad to have booked! Have you visited? I'd love to know!

Next up.. The accessory floor of course, and you'll have to head to our Instagram to see what I bought!

The Chanel & Louis Vuitton Christmas packaging was too gorgeous to resist!

Currently, outside of Harrods there is a Valentino Pink Cafe Pop Up, the bright pink Cafe certainly brightened up the December Day and I absolutely loved both the Christmas tree & Truck - think major Barbie Vibes!

Another top tip - get there early as it began to get very busy!

Overall we had the most fabulous, festive few days! I'll be sharing lots more via our Instagram so make sure you check this out here!
