*Sparkle in style*

Yikes! It's 3 weeks left, so no dillydallying now, it’s time to get ready for Christmas… or at least into the holiday spirit by enjoying all the associated festivities offered in London. Indulge yourself a little bit, and let the tree decorating and gingerbread house making wait just a couple more days (I promise you’ll still get everything done in time for Christmas).

Don’t know what Christmassy activitiesto go to in London? Here’s a couple of suggestions (and obviously the perfect Alexa Jay accessory to go with them too!).

I’ll admit, I’m a sucker for tradition and pretty lights. And when it’s Christmas, I always excuse myself from work to head out and enjoy the themed display windows of different department stores (Harrods and Selfridges being my absolute favorites). There’s always the temptation to go for a bit of shopping whilst I’m there too - it’s unavoidable. But at the same time, I like to try new things. I haven’t skated for ages and if there’s one Christmas wish I would like to come true this year (dear Santa), it’s to go ice-skating at Somerset House’s outdoor ice-rink. With all this comes lots of travelling, and additional baggage if you are a shopoholic like me. The bold and voluptuous Oli Tote comes quite handy for me. Why? It can hold half my life in it! Plus it’s in peach - an elegant shade that’s sophisticated enough for work and stylish enough for after work.

I think it’s undeniable that London’s got a fantastic theatre and musical performance scene. I’ve watched quite a few now (Wicked still being at the top of my list), and have honestly been blown away each time. So, to avoid the cliché of the Christmas panto, I opt for a musical CATS at London Palladium, where Nicole Scherzinger has the lead role. And of course, dressing up is another reason why I love going to musicals. A mini wallet like the above would be the ideal companion for the clutch to match your outfit but may be just a little bit too small for your everyday purse. Designed and made in London, the Alexa Jay mini wallet in Royal Blue is enough to carry the majority of your purse essentials, and of course your precious oyster card!


It wouldn't be Christmas without friends and family. Wherever you’re heading to celebrate Christmas, a stylish bag is an absolute must. Our Poppy Red mini clutch is one of our newest little numbers, made from luxurious Italian leather combined with our signature gold fittings and Alexa Jay logo. Sexy, glamorous and refined, it’s truly the ULTIMATE Christmas party accessory.

Make this year’s Christmas one to remember...Sparkle in style with Alexa Jay:)
