Winter Wonderland Hyde Park 2012

Christmas is my favourite time of the year and I love the festivities that London holds. I love to go and see all of the lights and markets and really just enjoy the atmosphere.
Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park has become somewhat of a Christmas tradition and every year I like to visit it a few times with both friends and family.

This week I have been twice and I thought I would share a few photos with you. I tend to stay away from the Fun Fair part and stick to the German Markets, delicious foods and drinks and general Christmassy wonders. 
My favourite things to indulge in at Winter Wonderland are without a doubt Lemon & Sugar Crepes, Cinnamon Pretzels and Nutella Waffles, all washed down with a beautiful Hot Cider.

If you haven't visited Winter Wonderland, then I definitely recommend you do. Whether it be to go to a German bar and enjoy the musical entertainment, go ice skating or just to take in the scenes, it really is quite the dream.

Winter Wonderland closes on the 6th January, are you planning on popping along or have you been already?

Laura Mercier Signature Votive Collection


Oh I do love a sale, especially a Christmas one and whilst I was in Selfridges yesterday, I managed to catch the beginning of their tremendous one and get my hands on this four set Laura Mercier Signature Votive Collection for £10, yes £10.

It was reduced from £42 to £21, but because of a slightly battered box and a very kind lady I managed to get this for £10 which I am so incredibly pleased about as it has been on my wish list for a while now.

These scented candles of Warm Roasted Chestnut, Creme Brûlée, Fresh Fig and Tarte Au Citron are all absolutely beautiful. If you have read my Laura Mercier Creme Brûlée Hand Cream post, then you'll know how much I love that scent, but honestly they are all so lovely and I can't bring myself to pick a favourite. I've already started burning them and this evening the Warm Roasted Chestnut candle has made my house smell so festively divine. They are all quite rich scents which won't be for everyone, especially the Creme Brûlée as it can be a little sickly, but I really do love them.

This set is still widely available, although I definitely suggest you get to Selfridges to see if you can pick it up with 50% off.
