Skate at Somerset House

Skate at Somerset House is one of the most beautiful things during winter in London, and last week I got to attend the very special and luxurious launch thanks to 22|43. They collaborated with Fortnum & Mason to create the most spectacular event with a surprise performance, wonderful food and drinks and of course, ice skating.
I took over their IG account and you can still see me munching away here (highlights).

I arrived and was met by this wonderful view! Luis, part of 22|43 took me around the space and let me roam free for a bit before the guests arrived.

I got to see the view where the surprise performance was taking place and had my very first hot toddy!!! Surprisingly good but very strong.

The doors opened and celebs, models, artists and journalists made their way in. After about 40 minutes of mingling the lights when dark and the Dreamgirls performed!!! They sang a few songs from the musical, a Christmas medley and ended with another Dreamgirls song. What a performance!

After I forced my bf to step on the ice with me..

How beautiful is this?!
We then popped by the Christmas Arcade and The Lodge and did some window shopping.

Cute window stickers.. ;)

I had such a good time at the launch of Skate at Somerset house and have recommended it to everyone I know, even though most people make it a must to visit every winter!
