CHRISTMAS IN MY CITY: THANK FIFI

27.11.13

Kick-starting our festive blogger series, Christmas in my City, is one of Scotland’s most stylish bloggers (with arguably the cutest dog), Thank Fifi.

Talking us through what she does when her city gets festive, take a trip to Glasgow with the lovely Thank Fifi.

What’s happening in your city over Christmas?

Christmas in Glasgow is so magical and every year there is ice-skating in George Square around the monuments, under the Christmas lights and surrounded by Christmas markets.  Independent cinema the Glasgow Film Theatre show It’s a Wonderful Life every December and the Scottish Ballet always do something incredible – this year’s production is Hansel & Gretel.

What do you do during the festive period?

Ice-skating (badly) followed by mulled wine in the log cabin, dog walking around the West End with regular hot chocolate stops at Jellyhill and skiing in Kelvingrove Park as soon as there’s enough snow. Usually a jump is created too, which is fun – even more so in the dark. Meeting friends in Royal Exchange Square is a must; the beautiful overhead blanket of lights always puts me in a festive mood.

What do you wear?

Layers. Lots and lots of warm layers – it’s no myth that Scotland is cold!A good coat is a must but I’m trying to steer away from the predictable darks this winter and I’m loving blues too, in any shade, from baby to navy.

What would you like for Christmas?

A golden cake slice – I’ve been asking for one for 2 years now and I know my family are certain I’m joking… but I am not. Perhaps a little more likely would be a bluebellgray abstract bedding set, sheepskin gloves and a classic black mini cross body bag. I always want another puppy, so usually pop that on the list on the off-chance. And another puppy. And another.

Thank Fifi wears: Roe snake dress, Lyndon jacket, Juliana scarf and Ruby shoes.

Stay tuned on the run-up to Christmas as we visit more bloggers in cities across the world.
