Have yourself a very EJS Christmas!

18th December 2014

With the big day creeping ever closer, we thought we'd celebrate Christmas in true Emma J Shipley style, with a run-down of what to eat, drink, wear, listen to and plenty more during the festive season. Whether it's making your own spiced cranberry martinis for your Christmas bash or braving the ice rink before the year is out, we've got it covered with our yuletide style guide. Have yourself a very EJS Christmas!

OUTFIT

Winter is an excuse to bring out your warmest woolies and your sparkliest party outfit, accessorised (of course) with a scarf to battle the Christmas cold. We think our ever-popular Expedition design - featuring a crowd of penguins exploring the antarctic - matches perfectly with an icy palette of blues and creams, in the softest knits and fur. We adore this Finds + Regina Pyo fake fur number, and EJS favourites Blake London is the go-to destination for the most luxurious knits that will see you right through until Spring...

FOOD

This week we headed down to neighbourhood eatery The Laundry to enjoy our very first Emma J Shipley Christmas party! We're lunchtime regulars at this delicious dining spot, but we thought we'd skip the salad and head straight for the three course festive menu, complete with plenty of delicious cocktails. The turkey main course came with all the trimmings, including braised red cabbage and pigs in blankets. However it was the dessert that we all agreed was a highlight - ginger and treacle pudding with butterscotch sauce followed by a very unnecessary round of tequila shots to end the night....

VISIT

Winterville in Victoria Park popped up at the beginning of the month providing an alternative Christmas wonderland in the heart of East London (and around the corner from EJS HQ). Think ice skating, roller discos, ski lodge pubs, street food and plenty of fairground rides - all of which have taken up residency in the middle of the park until the new year. We're particularly fond of the ferris wheel, however make sure you take your mulled cider with you as it gets rather freezing at the very top...

DRINK

If you're looking for a Christmas-appropriate cocktail to please the crowds this party season, this spiced cranberry martini is the answer to all your festive entertaining woes! It's warming and boozy at the same time and is best served with some sugar-frosted frozen cranberries popped on the top and a good side order of Christmas party spirit! Read the entire recipe here.

MUSIC

We're not ashamed to admit that Christmas music has been providing our studio soundtrack for the past week or so and we thought it only fair to share our festive favourites. Expect plenty of Motown Christmas numbers and some familiar records that we couldn't get through December without! Listen to our Christmas studio playlist here.

CHARITY

And finally, 'tis the season of giving and here at Emma J Shipley we're continuing our support of The Snow Leopard Trust - a great organisation that donates money towards the protection of this rare and endangered species. 10% of all the proceeds from the Atelier Swarovski x Emma J Shipley collection goes straight to The Snow Leopard Trust, and we also donated a portion of our sales from the Secret Christmas Grotto Pop-Up earlier this month to the organisation. We suggest you check out their website and the amazing work and research they do to protect this bold and beautiful animal.
