Christmas Shopping in Oxford Street

December 16, 2016

Hi Guys, well as you well know it’s that time of the year again and we are in Oxford Street, Jaadin the Kid, Mummy and me are all doing our Christmas shopping here. 

Now every year we have always gone to shopping centres or shopped online – however this year Mummy said that when she was younger the only way to do Christmas shopping was to head down to Oxf0rd Street, she said that it really felt like Christmas! 

So we have all agreed to do our shopping together as a family and to see what Oxford Street has to offer. Lets go family. 

First stop is River Island – now I am a real fan of RI and so I am so happy when I am told that I have been booked into River Island Style Studio where I will get RI Personal Styling Experience from their Styling team, what a treat. Jaadin the Kid is booked in too – catch him on his blog and he can tell you all about his experience..

Here is Nadiya she is the stylist at River Island, she grabs a rail and takes me around the store to see what items we can choose and put together. I am so excited!!

We are no heading over to John Lewis and I have heard that there are some great things going on in there. We are stopping off at the personalise your own Play-Doh stand located on the 4th floor in John lewis, a first of its kind and very unique – we love it and so have bought lots of this for our friends and families!

 Now in John Lewis there is a roof-top garden that we never knew about which is like a small wonderland, here you can eat lunch or dinner – it is recommended that you book online as it gets super busy and you may not be able to get a table – its called The Garden Society and its on the roof top of John Lewis overlooking Oxford Street what a amazing view!

Now something else that is super cool here is that you can personalise, all the items that are listed in the back of this photo, they have samples that you can choose from and personalise it all before your eyes – you cant do this online and you must come into store, this is a fab gift idea for anyone that wants to really give that special touch!

Well would you know if Santa Sleigh is parked right here on the 3rd floor of John Lewis and there is a very special treat here for us! Myself, Mummy and JD are all about to get in and take a ride – its fab there is a video where you are filmed on a green screen and takes you on a journey that you will love- you can download the video from the website, they send it straight to your email. Awesome!

I have decided to put on this corded blazer as I am feeling quite mystical and think that my outfit would fit in with the theme of the film.

At the event she is speaking about her role and how she came up with the designs and what inspired her, the room was filled with Students from the Costume Design departments all listening intently about her work.
