Christmas Eve

Photobucket
Christmas Eve is traditionally for me a very special day. I love Christmas traditions that can be built upon every year and one of my favourite traditions is the father-daughter trip we take to Bettys Tearoom (yes, the second time in a week!) on Christmas Eve. This time to the Northallerton shop in North Yorkshire, England. Although a very small town, with only a small street of shops to walk up and down, we browse the market and admire the scrumptious food in Lewis & Cooper before finishing off with a Fat Rascal (this was the Christmas version with almonds and cinammon) and cup of coffee in Bettys.

Today I chose to wear my new boots, an amazing blue velvet ankle boot with gold zip by Kat Maconie. Every month I choose new shoes or boots from Spartoo and I am never disappointed. With the boots, I decided on an all navy blue outfit with just a splash of mustard - I quite like an all-colour top-to-toe look.

I can't believe it is Christmas Eve already, where has this year gone? I would like to wish all of my readers and sponsors a lovely Christmas - thank you for reading, commenting and generally supporting me. I hope you have a wonderful holiday whether you celebrate it or not. And I very much look forward to what 2012 will bring for all of us.

My sister lives in Northallerton, so I often take trips to meet her for lunch at Bettys. I wish there was more like this in the north east x

Great pictures - I love Northallerton. My fiancee's dad runs a pub just outside it and it's where I got my wedding dress. My fiancee was very lucky to get one of those hampers from Lewis and cooper from work as a Christmas present! I was so excited to open it! x

Oh, these images are the essence of beauty at Christmas <3 I love Christmas traditions too; the eve usually involves a mass and then late night pizza snacking with my hungry, carol singing sister! You look ever so beautiful in these photos, I love your outfit.

Merry Christmas!

I had to do a little double-take when I saw that first picture, because I was thinking 'that looks like it's in Northallerton - no it can't be - yes it is!' I went to sixth form college in Northallerton, have family there and spend a lot of time there :) I'm so not used to other bloggers posting about places near where I live!

Your outfit is lovely! Bettys looks gorgeous as always. Merry Christmas! Best wishes x
