Pink Christmas Eve Prettiness | A Festive Weekend In Edinburgh


Happy Christmas Eve lovelies! I can’t believe that Christmas is tomorrow, I feel like it’s crept up so quickly and I’m getting ridiculously excited now. I love Christmas Eve as I feel like it’s really magical and almost as if there is glitter in the air. I went for a little festive trip to Edinburgh this week so I thought it would be nice to share some of my photos for my last little festive post! 

We visited the Harvey Nichols Chocolate Lounge for some pink champagne and candyfloss cocktails which were the yummiest and I also had a delicious melted chocolate s’mores brownie dessert with gooey marshmallows which was just heavenly! I found this beautiful unicorn stocking from Sass & Belle which is a soft blush pink colour and has a sparkly tinsel mane and little glittery snowflakes, so perfect! 


After that, we took a little wander into some of the pretty shops along Princes Street and George Street to look at all of their lovely Christmassy things. I particularly loved The White Company as their Christmas decorations are always so beautiful and everything is gift wrapped with dainty black bows. Their Baby Pink Cashmere Socks are definitely on my Christmas wishlist as they look so cosy and feel so soft and I decided to treat myself to their White Christmas scented candle which smells of sweet almond blossom, neroli and honeysuckle and comes in the prettiest sparkly silver jar. 

You can’t visit Edinburgh around Christmas time and not have a little visit to their popular Christmas markets. I came across the loveliest little Candy Clouds stall which sold fluffy pink cotton candy, popcorn, marshmallows and little rainbow unicorn lollipops made out of rock which I obviously had to buy! All of the stalls are so quaint and special and we ate yummy Nutella crepes with mini marshmallows and drank Bailey’s hot chocolates under the twinkly fairylights. 

 
We stayed at The Tigerlily Hotel which is a gorgeous boutique hotel situated on George Street. It has beautiful luxurious decor and the prettiest pink cocktail bar. We had a lovely festive dinner and enjoyed some candy cane gin and vanilla and passionfruit cocktails with prosecco! 

I also took the opportunity to visit the Hotel Chocolat café whilst I was having a little browse as their hot chocolates looked irresistible! I had a hazelnut hot chocolate complete with chocolate whipped cream and a delicate piece of dark chocolate and it was delicious. 
 
I also popped up a little festive vlog of my trip on my new YouTube channel if you fancy having a little watch. I'm totally new to this so I'd really appreciate your thoughts and hopefully I can do some more soon!

Now, it’s time to get finished wrapping the last of my presents with some pretty snowflake and unicorn glittery pink paper, bake some sugar cookies and get curled up on the sofa with a Bailey’s hot chocolate and watch some Christmas movies. I hope that you all have a magical day tomorrow filled with sugary sweet treats, pretty gifts and cosy times with all of your loved ones. 

Have a lovely Christmas!
