I’m a fully fledged John Lewis fan and I basically want to kit
my entire house out with things from their store. So when my friend Becky from English Mum asked if I fancied checking
out what they have in store for Christmas, I of course leapt at the chance.
Now, I know what you’re thinking ‘not more talk of
Christmas’ especially on the hottest day of the year, but it was all just so
pretty and not to mention sparkly!

We were greeted with winter gin & tonics from
Sipsmith Gin which included a dash of sloe gin and wedge of orange, I think I will
definitely be recreating these for Christmas. The lovely ladies from Sipmith
gave me the recipe to share with you:
25ml London Dry Gin
20ml Sloe Gin
Great quality tonic (Fever Tree is my favourite)
Fill a highball with ice
Add 25ml of Sipsmith London Dry gin
Top with a great quality tonic
Drizzle 20ml Sipsmith Sloe Gin on the top
with a fresh wedge of Orange
I found the handbag of my dreams – how beautiful
is this Kate Spade bunny bag?! I’m just waiting for it to hit stores so I can
get my paws on it.
We were also let into a little secret, the
fabulous online clothing brand Hush are
opening their first concessions in John Lewis stores in Chelmsford, Oxford
Street, Leeds and Birmingham and their autumn/winter range looks gorgeous. How
fabulous is this sparkly maxi dress and love jumper! (Sorry the pictures aren’t
my best work, the spotlights were conspiring against me!).
The ladies from my favourite biscuit company
of all time, Biscuiteers were on hand to show off their new Christmas range as
well as personalising cute Christmas jumpers for us. I think this is the first time
ever my name has been on anything! It was almost too cute to eat, well almost!
|So happy with my personalised Christmas jumper|
I have to say the goodie bag we were given on
our way out in the sunshine was gorgeous and included some cosy grey winter
socks, a silver star bracelet from Hush, the best chocolate ever from Simply
Chocolate and a Christmas cracker.
