Christmas lights in London

Fortnum & Mason

I am obsessed with London department stores during the holidays.  Love all the holiday decor and goodies for sale at Fortnum & Mason!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I ordered some delicious turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and green beans for lunch today from Bea's of Bloomsbury.  My friend Sahar and I had a wonderful Thanksgiving feast but went into food comas as soon as we finished eating!

Versace for H&M

This morning the Versace for H&M collection went on sale in London.  Rather than camping outside H&M and waiting in line for hours like many people did, I decided to stay home and try to buy the dress and leggings that I wanted online.  It took a while to get on the website since the traffic was so high, but after refreshing the site again and again, I was finally able to make my purchases.  I'm proud to say that I am now the owner of this unbelievable dress:

And these leggings!

Now I just need Nicki Minaj's crazy green wig:

Queen's visit!

Today the Queen visited Goodenough College, the postgraduate residence where I currently live.  She is the patron of the College, so she visits every few years to check on things and say hello.  I was able to get a few photos of her and was struck by her beauty - her royal blue dress and hat were stunning, her smile was lovely, and her face was radiant. (The photos don't do her justice!)
