Can you believe it will be Boxing Day a week from now? The days are whizzing by in a blur of nights out, Christmas occasions and work.
On Wednesday night I had the privilege of combining business with pleasure because along with my friend Sally, I did a restaurant review at the Coniston Hotel and Country Estate just outside of Skipton. We dined in the Huntsman’s Lodge and as you’ll see from the photographs below, it truly is a beautiful place to eat and was an evening we enjoyed thoroughly.
My skirt could perhaps be described as vintage. I wore it for my son’s first Christmas and he is 12, I haven’t worn it for a while but I love it as much as when it was new and it just felt right for the occasion. (It was from Coast and actually, so is my top. This season and reduced to £29 from £49 at the time of writing)
My Jimmy Choos, perhaps unsurprisingly, are still my favourite shoes ever and they themselves are over six years old as is my little clutch bag.
My jewellery however is brand new and is from Lizzy O, my exciting new online jewellery collection curated from Israeli brand, Danon.
My accessories can be seen a little clearer in this flatlay I posted on Instagram
The focal point of The Huntsman’s Lodge is this stunning open fireplace which we were seated next to.
I’ll share the full restaurant review when it is out in print in Aspire’s February issue but suffice to say my main course of grouse casserole and dessert of cappucinno creme brulee with Bailey’s ice-cream and a shortbread biscuit was utterly divine.
Until 31st December and to celebrate the launch of Lizzy O, there is a 10% discount with the code WLL10. All orders are individually packaged in a gift box or pouch and benefit from free UK delivery. Orders by Tuesday 22nd December will be dispatched before Christmas.
