christmas markets are VITAL in getting you in the festive spirit! i go to uni in nottingham, and just had to investigate the annual christmas market! i've gone everywhere, and it really illuminates the city, and gets everyone smiling as they cross market square and hearing a christmas song and smell mulled wine.
a couple of friends (who were excellent photographers, thanks guys) and i ventured into the christmas market to have a proper look around. i was there when the lights were turned on, but it was absolutely RAMMED and no way of having a proper look round. i personally love the lights everywhere, little twinkly lights...big santa lights... flashing lights... it just makes me feel so festive!!
there are loads of fab stalls to have a nosey at, with burger and hog roast stands giving off some incredible smells everywhere. a soup stand always gets my attention when i walk through town in the day, as warm soup on a cold day is just beaut. when i visited the other night however, the pancake stall was my first point of call. love a good pancake! next time i will definitely be stopping off at the cadbury chocolate stand, as i am dying for a hot chocolate with marshmellows! i was also instantly drawn to the chocolate fountain, with chocolate kebab type skewers. as you can see in the pictures, attention to detail was essential, with some decorated as reindeers and snowmen! so cute!
i had to take some outfit posts near the carousel. i'm always drawn to the lights (again) and the colours. i managed to take a few sneakily before the ride started up again. i decided to debut my fur gilet for the first time this year. i managed to pick this beauty up for just EIGHT POUNDS at a car boot sale, never been worn and topshop!! don't think the lady knew what she had... anyway, it came to a good home! i also got a fedora FINALLY as an early xmas present (cheers mum), and i absolutely love it. it is so autumn/winter, and fits perfectly with the outfit. i felt a bit like millie mackintosh, without the gorgeous face, body and pro green as my husband, ofc...
hope everyone is feeling festive! :) until next time...xo
