'Visiting' the Savoy at Christmas

Hello chic friends :)

I was just wondering, how many times so far this month has someone asked you what you're doing for Christmas - maybe a million? Oh well, small talk makes the world go around!

It's business as usual here - festive walking tours on YouTube, candles and lit ornaments galore, cheesy Christmas movies on Netflix and fun get togethers with friends.

I've been writing this week too, on my next book. Such fun. Try and stop me :)


As mentioned, one of my favourite relaxing sofa-time things to do in December is to watch walking tours - and bus tours! - of the Christmas lights and decorations in big cities.

The Wanderizm channel has a wonderful double decker bus tour of the festive lights in central London.

They just happened to pass the Savoy Hotel too...

My cousin Sam was lucky enough to stay there only a week or two ago and sent these fabulous photos he took of the Savoy lobby. How beautiful is the Christmas decor?

And, he also happened to see Prince William in the lobby followed by his entourage, on their way to an event. What a fun coincidence!

I hope you enjoy these photos, they truly are magical, and check out the London bus tour too. It's so fun to be riding along, waiting at the stop lights, turning the corner, seeing new decorations...

I know, I really need to get a life :) but truly, I love being a happy homebody. One day I'll travel to London myself, but not today. Today I'm cozy and snug at home, enjoying the inspirational fruits of others labour. 

And it’s another candle and lightstravaganza - Saturday night at Chez Ferris :) (not quite the Savoy but still pretty!)

Wishing you a fab rest of your week, and I'll see you next week for my last post before Christmas :)

  1. Thank you for sharing because I have just found a new way to show the kids more of other cities and countries. I just subscribed to the channel you shared and watching Christmas lights at home from places we will probably never visit is exciting. Thank u!

  2. "Chez Ferris" - love it :)
    I have also enjoyed, via the magic of YouTube the Christmas lights in cities such as New York. You are not mad/sad at all.

  3. I have no idea why or how I missed this post. But I did. I never heard of walking or bus tours but the link is still active so I enjoyed that. I will know better next year.

    Those are magical pictures of the lobby and of the outside tree. But Chez Ferris is the best!


Merci for your comment. Wishing you a chic day!
