Today it is the first official day of winter. But the weather in London has been rather wintery for some time already. No surprise I am wearing this faux fur coat here instead of my usual black one that I brought with me from Nepal. I was simply freezing in it.

My previous post was about Harrods' Christmas windows. I don't go to Harrods for shopping, but whenever I am in London and happen to be in the area I drop in for their cakes and bakery. I find them delicious. This time I was also curious about their Christmas section, thought I would find something interesting and affordable there. I did find many interesting Christmas decorations but they were too pricey for me. Anyway, I enjoyed just looking around. Most of all I was impressed by the Christmas toys and dolls: Santa Clauses, Fairies, Nutcrackers.
What I like about visiting London at this time of the year is the festive Christmas atmosphere that you can feel everywhere: Christmas songs, Christmas gifts sections, Christmas tree decorations and of course, Christmas shop-windows. Have a look at these amazingly beautiful Christmas windows at Harrods. They were inspired by the iconic British steam train, and the main window starts off with a train "The Harrods Express" that emanates the "choo choo" sound and smoke.
We hadn't planned to visit this place but when we came across it accidentally we decided to pop in. The place looks like a theme park for M&M's. They say it is the largest candy store in the world with all sorts of merchandise spread over the building's four floors, everything being dedicated to M&M's: souvenirs, bed& bath, kitchen wears, stationery, bags, clothes and jewelry.
Those who's been reading my blog for a while know about my little obsession with cats. And they will understand why I could not resist to buy this white cat-ty skirt (H&M) as soon as I saw it. Outfits in monochromatic black and white are usually not my thing, they seem to be rather boring. But here I am dressed in black and white all over and not feeling wearing something boring at all, thanks to the skirt's print and to the faux fur-balls scarf.
