Due to popular demand, I called upon Hercules to throw down his Advanced Guide to Hot Yoga and fire up the silver lady, so that we could take a gander at the Liberty's Christmas windows. With great gusto and in true Herculean style we thundered through central London at break neck speed in our gleaming midnight carriage for some late night festive shopping.
Welcome aboard the Liberty Christmas Express....

I have long had a fascination with fabulous window dressing and display, something I probably inherited from my grandmother who was
well practiced in the art. I distinctly remember the vignettes of twinkling Worth
perfume bottles she arranged at home that encouraged my magpies eye from a
young age. So with every Christmas I get
to be a big kid again and press my nose up against shop windows oogling at the
treasures within. Join me as we embark on a season of magical Christmas window
watching in London. First stop - Harrods.
Within the theme of the Disney Princess, Harrods goes all out
with a gorgeous display of dreamy gowns fit for the fairest of fairy tales.
