I was so shocked and amazed into silence (which is rare) when I found this BURGUNDY MAXI VELVET DRESS (pause for breath) in a charity shop near my house when I was out Christmas present shopping. YOU KNOW WHAT, IT GETS BETTER. It fits me LIKE A BLOOMIN’ GLOVE. I bought it because it was so beautiful and was £7 thinking that I could easily take it in to fit me but when I got home and tried it on it fitted me better than any other dress that I own. I’m so pleased with this and think that this dress is just my best argument for shopping in charity shops and hey, I donated that money to Cancer Research – fabulous!!!
Talking of Christmas shopping; I’ve recently visited some amazing Christmas events in London which I do try to go to most years and cannot stop raving about them! The first would be Winter Wonderland at Hyde Park which never fails to disappoint. We had some amazing food including mini Dutch pancakes with cinnamon and apple sauce, an amazing ‘red sausage’ from a European stall which had the most amazing spicy flavours and beautiful and apt mulled wine! The rides and lights were amazing as was every single stall which had a beautiful Christmas/German theme!

Merry Christmas everyone!!! xoxo
