Peggy Porschen's Nutcracker Christmas + my Sugar Plum Fairy

Introducing my new Christmas theme which will run throughout the winter months on my blog and social media; ballet! I'll be waltzing through ballerina babetown as I bring you my spin of ballet-inspired looks which I'm so excited for and have been planning for months! The Sugar Plum Fairy is my first foray into Christmas content and what better way to celebrate my first ballet post than by a visit to Peggy Porschen's Nutcracker Christmas display, my favourite of their dream-like displays yet! ♥︎

Peggy's pretty parlour lit up the London streets as we braved the cold to shoot my Sugar Plum Fairy outfit and warmed ourselves up afterwards with candycane engraved hot chocolate and christmas tree cookies. Peggy's The Nutcracker Christmas Collection is straight from cloud nine, or the Land of Sweets to be more precise. Gingerbread, Sugar plum Fairies, Nutcrackers and more, the magic was non-stop! 

It seemed fitting, of course, to opt for a Sugar Plum Fairy cupcake complete with mini ballet shoes and the most delicious winter wonderland icing! The Jolly Gingerbread cupcake was a real treat too, alongside a merry marching Nutcracker cookie. ♥︎

I really felt like I ruled The Land of Sweets as I twirled around in ruffles with my gingerbread house held close to my heart and my mint green hair the perfect candycane accessory. My new blue coat also got an outing, and I love the contrast of the pink and blue, it felt really Christmassy. I had a blast in London shooting this look and it felt like the bravest I've done - yet the most rewarding. Throwing myself into this new theme has really given me a boost and I hope you love what's to come ballerina wise on the blog just as much as I've enjoyed making it happen!  ♥︎

At 11 years old I actually went to see The Nutcracker ballet but ended up experiencing one of my first major panic attacks and having to leave early and miss the whole thing. I'll have to talk about it more someday as the power of kindness the theatre staff showed me still plays heavily on my heart today. I'm so glad ballet brings people joy and this theme has been fun and interesting to put into place! 
I'll be posting the second part of my Christmas in London adventures next week so stay tuned! ♥︎

  7. I love these photos from your fashion photoshoot at Peggy Porschen's!!!
    It looks like an absolutely delightful place to visit, have cookies, cakes, munchies, hot chocolate, and be photographed having one's fashion fantasies coming true!
    I love that Peggy Porschen has a Vegan-Friendly and 'Made Without' cake range as well.
    Your taste in feminine fashion makes me swoon, and your makeup looks beautiful!
    I love how how your pretty mint green hair complements the deep pink white-trimmed tiered ruffled embroidered dress!
    I also love how your flared double breasted coat looks styled with the over the knee boots and with the pink knit hat.
    The rainbow heels you accessorised your outfit with look amazing as well!
    I'm so sorry to read of the panic attack that caused you to miss The Nutcracker when you were 11. That Nutcracker display at Peggy Porschen's is great, and your outfit photos are amazing.
    Although I did visit broadway long long ago, I'm afraid I have never been to see a ballet performance live and in person - only parts of them on television or on YouTube (like a couple of videos by @RaeAbigael).
    Seeing the Nutcracker in person would be quite a treat.
