House of Fraser xmas

House of Fraser’s Xmas is Coming press event brought many a photo opportunity with it’s immaculate visuals displayed over 3 floors. I apologise in advance for the photo heavy blog post. I just couldn’t bring myself to condense the post into less photos as there was so much to see at the event! I can promise you that scrolling through my pictures will bring a flurry of festive excitement. Some beautiful items coming in stock for AW16 I’m sure you will agree…

Walking into the Christmas room of the House of Fraser press event was like a Pinterest board come to life! Beautifully set up to inspire it’s audience. My favourite was this sparkly, gold and pink table spread. I can imagine gathering around this table with all my closest friends for a Christmas celebration.

This embroidered bomber jacket is the perfect Gucci dupe, and as I’m sure you can guess, I’m obsessed. This bomber is at the top of my AW wishlist and I will keep refreshing House of Fraser’s new arrivals until it can be mine!

The Charlotte Tilbury team were there giving make overs! One of their lovely assistants gave me a talk through their beautiful products. The gold/brown eyeshadow palette above was my fave, and the perfect colours if you have blue eyes like me. Love a shimmery, smokey eye for a night out. How cute are the mini lipsticks below?! An exclusive gift set by Charlotte Tilbury for House of Fraser. Great for clutch bags or on the go in your pocket.

ice cream christmas

create your own ice cream

Whipsmiths were there providing us with tasters their extraordinary ice cream from a pop up cart. You could mix up your own flavour using the ingredients provided and the magic of this liquid nitrogen machine. I chose to mix White Chocolate with Chocolate Brownie (delicious!) whilst Laura (The Fashion Wonderland) opted for a Raspberry sorbet.
