Once again you lucky people get to join in the second leg of our annual Christmas shopping tour in central London for 2013.
I received a call last week from my lovely friends over at Harrods inviting me to pop along and preview their absolutely gorgeous new Christmas window displays. The length of the infamous store front in Knightsbridge has been transformed into the ultimate homage to the luxurious golden age of steam travel in full-on, glam, Orient Express style!
The Harrods midnight Christmas window fairies have spent the year dreaming up the most beautiful creations and took three weeks installing them to the peak of perfection before the grand unveiling.

The adventure begins with a full size, gleaming silver steam engine that pulls the most fabulous carriages that wrap around the store. So jump aboard with me now and be part of the Harrods Christmas Express fantasy as we take in their uber glamorous windows.
Each carriage contains a different scene with real time magical landscapes whizzing past the windows in the background. Why not order a cocktail in the glittering piano bar or tea and macarons in the chic on-board cafe. Those of you who fancy something a little more formal can sit down at a glitzy dinner party car. There is also some seriously sexy luggage complete with dishy porters to swoon over as you sashay along the steam train going from car to car.
We have been back twice to see the windows on our travels and each time I have seen something more gorgeous to covet. I practically finished my Christmas shopping list by the second lap round. Anyway, enough of this chitter-chatter, the handsome porter is calling me aboard as we depart to another destination on the Magical Christmas Wreath Company Shopping Tour 2013......
......All aboard !
