It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Bristol, especially at House of Fraser in Cabot Circus, who held their glitzy press Christmas Party last week. Welcomed by a glass of pink fizz, the mood was merry, the staff were splendid and the decor was adorned with all things CHRISTMAS!
The chic event was held on the top floor of House of Fraser in the luxurious Zest Bistro, which had been suitably spruced up for the occasion. Fairy lights glimmered, cute Christmas characters contested for our attention and bright baubles embellished the trees. A particular highlight was sampling Zest’s salmon canapes, spicy chicken skewers and mini mince pies. Delicious! Not to mention our first glass of mulled wine this festive season!
Little did we know that hidden in the heart of the city lies the Robin James Spa. Well, on the first floor of House of Fraser to be exact! We were given a sneaky peek inside this haven of candlelight and warmth, and now we can’t wait to book ourselves in and loosen up our chakras…. Pampering came courtesy of the lovely ladies from Molton Brown, YSL Beuaty and Nails Inc who provided magnificent massages, manicures and make up.
While we were there we bumped into Bristol based bloggers Bristol Fashionista, Ship-Shape and Bristol Fashion, Style By Josephine, and finally met the lovely Hayley from Ceriselle and Bonjour, Blogger! (Two blogs. What a wonderwoman!) It was a pleasure to see you all!
Jo: Victoria and I didn’t intend to wear matching monochrome but it turns out it’s quite a nice look! I came straight from work so I wanted to wear something that I knew would carry me through the day. This black and white striped dress from F&F has been a fail-safe option for me of late (you can read more about it here) and I love teaming it with brighter accessories, such as my Tatty Devine bunting necklace. I finished off my outfit with M&S tights and shoes from Primark.
Victoria: I picked up this glorious dress last week from Primark. The dress is the perfect shape for me, with its coveted clinched in waist and 3/4 length sleeves. I didn’t even need to try it on, I just knew it would fit perfectly. I added a little colour with coral bow shoes, also from Primark, and a thin red bow belt from New Look. My opaque tights are from M&S. As I also came straight from work I popped into the Body Shop and asked the lovely Charlotte to touch up my make up, and what a fantastic job she did. Check out her website here!
So it is safe to say the Christmas spirit has certainly set in here at She and Hem and we are suitably psyched out of our minds about the festive fun that is to come. We have lots of fab Christmas posts lined up, so if you’d like to keep updated (and who wouldn’t?!), please do follow us on Bloglovin’ here.
We Wish You a Merry Christmas!
