The Thursday before last I was lucky enough to be invited to a beautiful evening of festive fun with the House of Fraser team, up in the Perrier Jouet room at the top of the Gherkin. I'm talking festive table decs, a gift wrapping class, cocktail making (I certainly enjoyed these as I ended up following this dinner in an Uber to Soho and not arriving home until 4am...) a tasty 3 course meal and if that wasn't good enough, I left with a bag of prezzies from their Christmas gifts selection


I couldn't have asked for a more lovely bunch of bloggers to enjoy the evening with, and if I wasn't left feeling festive enough from the shenanigans with HoF, when catching my Uber outside of The Gherkin I was greeted by a flurry of snow! I'm usually such a scrooge at this time of year, but this was genuinely one of the best evenings I've had in a long time and it certainly ignited my festive spirit!

I was able to pick one of my gifts from House of Fraser which I chose from their beauty category - the Urban Decay Heavy Metals palette - perfect for experimenting with bold festive eye looks this time of year, but they also surprised me with an array of Bobbi Brown cosmetics and gorgeous iridescent Biba cosmetics bag, of which definitely softened the blow of my hangover when I discovered them the next morning!






I just want to say a massive thanks to House of Fraser and the team for arranging this special evening and please don't forget inviting me to the next, haha!!
