Christmas in July

Saturday, August 09, 2014

I know many people will fill with dread at the mere mention of Christmas at this point in the year. Some of you may be more organised and have been bargain hunting since the January sales. Either way we are over half way there and you will find that the retailers know already what will be popular this Christmas. For this reason many companies and retailers hold Christmas previews throughout the month of July to showcase what they have to offer over the seasonal period. I don't often venture into London but I was lucky enough to manage one trip last month in which I got to attend two very different and exciting Christmas events and so I thought I would share with you a few sneak peeks at some of my favourites from these events.


Well I'm not even a big Doctor Who fan but check out this tea set. One of the first things that jumped out at me whilst browsing. Isn't it cute?!

Again I'm not going to claim to be a great cook but I love the look of these cake moulds, perfect for a child's birthday cake.

Now this is more my area, baby and children. I saw lots of great new products including:

Recaro Easylife stroller. I hadn't really been bothered about this pushchair until I saw it in real life and noticed how small it folds. I have to say I was pretty impressed.

V-Tech Toot Toot Playsets. I have a feeling Zach would love these. Definitely high up on his Christmas list this year.

V-Tech KidiPet Friends Kitten. I grew up with tamagotchi's and this is the preschool equivalent that I think Gracie would love!

CMJ Media Winter Wonderland
Before having kids I always wore jewellery and I'm still a big fan of nice jewellery whenever I get the chance to go out. The CMJ Christmas event was quite magical. The items were dressed beautifully with gorgeous props and fake snow, not that they needed it. The pieces spoke for themselves, lots of eye-catching jewellery from lots of great designers. It's safe to say a few pieces are on my Christmas list already. As pictures ALWAYS speak louder than words here are some photos for you to see for yourselves.

As you can see there were so many beautiful pieces. In fact I couldn't possibly choose a favourite! Ladies I suggest you remember these names and drop them to your partners as much as you can over the next few months!
