Merry Christmas! | Luxe Tartan & Tulle

Women's Red Tartan Plaid Blazer
So, this will be kept short and sweet.  Because let's face it, we're all too busy watching festive films and churning through the tubs of chocolate (Roses or Celebrations?) to focus for longer than a couple of minutes.  I've dipped away from my Christmas celebrations for one moment to wish you a very, VERY Merry Christmas.  Wherever you are and whoever you're spending it with, I hope you're having a fabulous time.  And if not?  Well, there's a brand spanking new year just around the corner, calling your name!

'Tis The Season To Shine! | Swarovski via Eyewearbrands

Swarovski Tortoiseshell SK 0137 52F Sunglasses
Okay, so I think we've established by now my undying love for all things that sparkle, shine and glisten.  But did you know this love is never more intense than when accessories are involved?!  Although we may not always be able to justify passing trends that paste embellishments across our chests, and sequins up our legs, when it comes to accessories it's a completely different ball game.  Why? Because they're classics.  They're the purchases we more often than not describe as 'investment pieces'.  Along with shoes, sunglasses are my babies.  They're one of my favourite ways to instantly update an outfit, and inject a vibe to whatever look I'm going for.  My latest crush?  These heavily-embellished Swarovski sunglasses via Eyewearbrands.  Oh and another fabulous thing about accessories? They're ideal for gifting.  Hint hint to your partner...

Luxurious Gold Christmas Table Setting | Amara Living

Luxury Gold Christmas Table Setting Lifestyle Blogger
I've always adored styling table settings and never more so than when it involves Christmas!  The recurring theme?  Gold accents. However, for this year i've styled a luxurious table setting for Christmas with gold as the focus, rather than simply an accent colour.  At this point, I'm pretty much feeling like a kid kin a sweet shop, because oh my gosh all of the gold.  Gold baubles.  Gold placemats.  Gold candles.  Swoon.  If you're currently in the process of planning a table setting for this festive season and plan on wowing your guests, but can't quite decide on which route to take.  Take the shiny, glittering, golden route.  Trust me.

Top 10 Christmas Walks | London & South East

Something about this time of year sees us all sliding on oversized knitted jumpers and heading outdoors.  Whether it's to walk off your last dozen mince pies, or you're in need of some fresh air after days of breathing in cinnamon-scented candles, crisp winter walks are a part of the festive season.  Boxing Day is renowned for seeing us head out in groups and into the great outdoors, and a show of hands please for who's wandered through an illuminated trail this Christmas?!  With this in mind, I've put together a list of ten of the most fabulous Christmas walks to enjoy this season, all located in the London & South East areas.  Find your gloves, step into your boots and... enjoy!

Why Your Wardrobe Needs Tweed | Winter Styling

Zara Tweed Black and White Mini Dress
Trust me your wardrobe needs tweed.  Better yet, it wants tweed - because it knows how good it'll make you look!  I've discussed the material a fair bit here on A Glass Of Ice over the past year or so, and so I won't pretend this is a new discovery because it totally isn't.  I mean, I pretty came out of the womb preaching about how chic tweed can look and how it will instantly add a touch of elegance to your outfit. But let's dive a little deeper and think about how we can introduce the luxurious material into our winter wardrobes...

Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire | Equestrian Centre Experience

Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire Equestrian Centre Horse Riding
Needless to say, I've seen horses.  Plenty of them.  But can you believe I've never actually touched, let alone ridden a horse before?! Having heard mention of the illustrious Equestrian Centre while last at the hotel (as well as driving past it for the fabulous Bride To Tea event last month), I was thrilled to have been given an insight into the Equestrian Centre at the end of last week, as well as the opportunity to take a gentle ride through the Dogmersfield Park Estate underneath the winter sun.  Riding boots on, hat in place and back protector secured, it was time to start exploring...
