Today was Emilia's first visit to Santa Claus! We didn't bring her last year because she was so tiny and probably would have slept through it but this year she actually got to enjoy it! We went to Fota Island's Believe which we had heard was the best place to go in Cork. It definitely didn't disappoint...I don't think I've ever experienced a more magical or well-organised Winter Wonderland! Emilia got to meet the elves & Mrs. Claus first, before being brought on a train ride up to Santa's cabin. We got offered hot chocolate & mulled wine, we were showered with fake snow, she got to hang a candy cane on the Christmas tree and we even met a 10 week old husky puppy!! This was the highlight of the day for me - I'm the kind of person who really shouldn't be allowed around puppies...seriously, it's dangerous. I think I would have 20 dogs if I could. Something happens to me when hold a new pup, I get a whiff of his fluffy adorableness and before you know it I'm smuggling him into my bag. :-/
Here's what Emilia & I wore to our Santa visit! We made sure to wrap up warm as the train ride is quite cold. She is wearing a purple, pink & turquoise fleece set (top & pants) from The Children's Place, her bow & headband are from Layniebug Designs and her shoes are from Clarke's. My cardigan is from Vila, the leggings are by Selected, boots are Chinese Laundry and my scarf is from Soaked in Luxury.
And here is our Santa photo! I can't decide whether Emilia looks more petrified or just totally unimpressed!
