London’s Winter Wonderland

On Saturday night I went to Winter Wonderland with one of my best friends. It was such a lovely evening to take a trip to Hyde Park. All the lights from the distance were getting me massively excited from the start, and it definitely didn’t disappoint me!

I was worried I wouldn’t enjoy it as much as everyone had been saying on social media, but the atmosphere was amazing! There were so many different food stalls and drink stalls – my fave was definitely the mulled wine. I basically live for mulled wine, it’s probably one of my favourite parts of Christmas! The moment I walked in I beelined for the wine stall!

I’m not a massive fan of rides so we didn’t go on any of the rides – but if you are a fan I can imagine you would love them!! Even the kids spinning rides were making me feel slightly ill, but they were definitely some bigger rides for people that are… you know… not wimps like me.

The park is so much bigger than it has been in previous years and the organisers have really out done themselves this year with the live music, markets and all the different entertainment there is.

Plus, coming in from a cold evening out and snuggling up in front of the TV with a warm cup of tea is a feeling that I absolutely love. It really makes me appreciate home more!

Here are a few photos from my night – I’m definitely feeling more Christmassy now!!


What have you guys been doing to get into the Christmas spirit?! 

Living Grateful #13

Hi guys! It has been a couple of weeks since I have done one of these posts. It has been quite a busy time, I think it will be hectic until the festive periods are finished. I love being busy and it’s been so nice to see lots of friends. I have also managed lots of chilled time watching I’m a Celeb though… who else is watching it?

  1. A night out with Scott

Last weekend I went out for the first time in what feels like forever (I’ve definitely turned into a massive granny!) It was really nice to go out for once! Plus I had nothing planned for the following day and so I had a lovely lazy Sunday filled with catching up on TV and baking.

2. Dinner at Kimchee

I had dinner with one of my best friends and my parents at Kimchee on Wednesday week. I go to Uni opposite the restaurant and it looks so pretty from the outside I was glad I could go in! It was so nice catching up with my parents and friend as well!

3. Some time at home

I’ve spent a couple of nights at home over the past few weeks and it’s been so nice to be able to chill. I’ve spent time with my cats, gone for long walks in the park and taken full advantage of my parent’s nespresso machine – what’s not to love?!

4. Winter Wonderland

I went to Winter Wonderland on Saturday night with one of my best friends – it was amazing! I’ve seen so many photos of it on social media across this week and wondered if it would live up to my expectations but it definitely has done! There were so many fantastic food stalls (including gluten free & vegan crepes!!!), as well as beautiful lights and markets. I’m not a big one for rides so they didn’t appeal to me – they made me quite ill just looking at them! It was a bit chilly but you honestly can’t beat that feeling of coming home after an evening out in the cold and warming up with a cup of tea!

5. A day out in Brighton

I went down to Brighton today for a catch up with a friend. We had an incredible roast dinner for lunch and a lovely wander around Brighton. It really couldn’t have been a better end to my week!

What have you been grateful for this week? And more importantly who are you rooting for on I’m A Celeb?!
