Inside Anna's Stocking...

Inside Anna's StockingInside Anna's Stocking...

I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas this week and are enjoying the holidays (eating plenty of mince pies) and gearing up for the new year celebrations! I had a great day with the family and despite the stormy weather it was the perfect Christmas! As something a little different on the blog this week I thought I'd do a more personal post and tell you what was inside my stocking this season. Santa was very good to me this year and brought me plenty of my most coveted items (thank you hubby) and these were a few of my faves: 1. An adorable lingerie set from Freya Lingerie 2. A new iPhone case from Lazy Oaf 3. A chic clutch from the Cambridge Satchel Company 4. The Anatomy of Fashion by Colin McDowell 5. A DIY gingerbread biscuit kit from Biscuiteers 6. My favourite scent - Chanel No. 5 7. Smokey Eye shadow set from Bobbi Brown 8. A pair of sprinkle socks from Happy Socks What did you get in your stocking? Send me a tweet @annalouoflondon and tell me all about your Crimbo pressies! Anna

Anna's Christmas Playlist!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oWKsDemzH58 The holidays are almost here and we're all in those last couple of working days before the Christmas period which let's face it hardly ever revolve around that much 'work'. At ALOL HQ we're busy packing up Christmas orders, gearing up for a big end of season sale (stay tuned!) and getting into the festive spirit by banging out our favourite Christmas tunes as loud as they will go in the office! We found this Christmas playlist on Youtube by Vevo and thought we'd share it with you so that you too can get into the mood on your walk/ drive/ cycle home this evening! Here's to a fab holiday season!

The Anna Lou Christmas Wreath!

How excited are you getting about Christmas? We can't believe it's only a few more weeks to go (15 days to be precise)! If you haven't started putting your decorations up yet then perhaps today's blog post can give you a little inspiration! This weekend the ALOL team worked hard at putting together a festive Anna Lou Christmas wreath to hang outside the door to our offices and above is the finished result! Doesn't it look fab? We're feeling suitable festive now and suddenly have the urge to decorate the whole office in tinsel (but we won't, for now). We took a quick snap of the wreath for our annual Christmas postcard so every time you order from the site this December you'll receive one of these fab postcards in your delivery to hang on your fridge, mantelpiece or bookshelf and get you in the holiday mood. We decorated ours with Anna Lou inspired pieces such as the Miss Anna character and bits and bobs of jewellery inspiration but you can add any sort of decorations to them and they are super easy to do. Keep them colour co-ordinated with red and green Christmas bobbles or add a little reindeer to say hello to the postman each morning, the choice is yours! Hope you all had lovely weekends too!

Last Chance to Order Bespoke before Christmas!

This weekend is your last chance to order your personalised or bespoke pieces and guarantee Christmas delivery!! Yes it may only be the 7th December but remember that it can take up to two weeks to create your bespoke masterpieces, engrave those messages, add on those special dates, make sure the chain length is correct, get the font you've requested, you get the idea right? We pride ourselves on offering a bespoke service that really caters to what YOU want and like to make sure we get all of the little details perfect for you to ensure you get an item/ gift you are truly happy with and want to treasure. But of course all of that care and attention requires a little time so if you are thinking of getting your other half/ best friend/ mum or yourself something unique and personal this Christmas then don't take any chances and get your order in by the end of day tomorrow. We can then work like super troopers to ensure it gets to you in time for Christmas and you don't have any disappointment when the presents under the tree get unwrapped on Christmas Day! For all of your other orders you have until the 13th but for bespoke items your last day to order is the Sunday the 8th! Email us today with your specifications or order straight from the site!
