Favorite Festive Spots in London

I may be biased, but I think no other city does Christmas quite like London. Everywhere you turn in the capitol is dressed up—from grand hotel facades to townhouse front doors. When you stumble upon some of these spots, you can’t help but smile and get excited for the coming season.

Yes, it can be stressful and hectic, but Christmas in London might also just be the most wonderful time of year.

Seeing the Christmas Markets of Southwest Germany

I come from a family of people who love to travel (myself included) and I’m lucky to have been to a fair amount of places. But I’m the only person who had still never been to Germany (save for a layover in an airport, but that doesn’t count). I felt a bit like I was missing out, so when Supal asked if I’d like to join her on a trip to Stuttgart, my answer was of course a firm ‘yes!’.

It was a whirlwind trip to say the least. From the moment we landed until the moment we took off back to London, our days were packed. From medieval towns to the most modern library you’ve ever seen, plus plenty of Christmas market charm, here’s what we got up to in Southwest Germany:

A Three Day Porto Itinerary

A little earlier in the year, my fellow blogger Supal asked if I’d be interested in joining her on a trip to Porto. I’ve only ever heard wonderful things about this city, so it was an immediate ‘yes!’ from me. We managed to fit in so many experiences and sights during our two days in the city.

Here’s what we got up to during our time in this beautiful city:

The Most Versatile Piece in My Winter Wardrobe

The most versatile item in my winter wardrobe is an unexpected one—a houndstooth coat. With it’s streamlined tailoring, velvet details and blue, black and red pattern it’s already become the most reached for item in my closet. It looks lovely dressed up or down and can be worn in so many situations.

On a recent trip to Sweden, I inadvertently proved the versatility of this jacket by wearing three very different looks, all topped with this coat. Here’s how I styled this coat three ways while on our jaunt to Sweden:

Reflections on Three Years in London

It’s been a little over three years since my husband and I made the life changing decision to move to London and quite frankly, it’s hard to imagine a life anywhere else. Yes, even on the rainiest days, I’m still in love with this city.

Without a doubt, moving here has the best decision of our lives and to mark the milestone, I thought I’d reflect back on the past few years with some questions to myself. A fun exercise that’s filled me with so much gratitude towards this place and the people and places that make it so special.

Apple Picking Outside of London

I’ll admit, I’ve googled ‘apple picking near London’ more times than I can count over the last few years, so to finally get out and do it felt wonderful!

This farm ticked off so many autumnal boxes. Squash, pumpkins and plenty of locally-baked goods were on offer at their store, but of course, the star of the show was the apple orchard. Sitting upon a hillside with views of fields, cows, and plenty of trees with beautifully changing leaves, it was such a sight for city eyes.

Dressing for your Destination

Not only is it practical, but it’s also very fun to tailor your outfit for your destination when traveling. 

I'm always inspired by the places I'm able to travel to, and that really reflects in my outfits that I'll bring with (and the pieces I purchase during the trip)!

When choosing outfits to pack, here are three things that I think about when dressing for the city we’ll be traveling to:

Pink and Green in Regent's Park

Chances are if I'm headed into central London, I'll probably also make a stop by my favorite spot in the whole city, Regent’s Park. I've said it before and I'm sure I'll say it again, it's the place I return to whenever I'm looking to clear my head or just need a breath of air.

It seems that so much time spent around the roses has begun to rub off on my wardrobe and I'm finding myself blending into this beautiful spot!

Never Stop Being Curious

Initially, this blog post was going to be all about my new color obsession: saffron yellow. But then I looked at the photos and thought I'd say a bit more. Go a bit deeper. So, today, I'm going to say why you should never stop being curious. Never stop opening your mind to new things. And never shy away from asking a few questions.

Why'd these photos get me thinking that way? Read on!
