As much as I love Christmas time, and the weeks leading up to the big day, I’m not the biggest fan of the actual day itself. I live at home with just my parents and we have a pretty chilled out morning, and then my sister and her family come over later on for dinner. We haven’t got a large family so I don’t have many people to buy for (luckily!) so present opening time goes pretty quickly, and then the best part of the day can start.. lunch time!  I thought I’d so a quick (belated) blog post showing…

One of the reasons I’ve been so busy and stressed lately is down to my cake business. Christmas was obviously a busy time for me and I had lots of orders to do. The mojority of these were for Christmas Eve, so I spent hours after work and a whole weekend preparing for the orders. Juggling cakes with my full time job was pretty full on and I did struggle a little, but luckily in the end everything worked out and I didn’t have too many disasters! My new Christmas product this year was these chocolate houses. I made the…

Evening everyone! I hope you’ve all had a wonderful Christmas! Mine has been pretty chilled and very family orientated and it’s been so lovely to have just a nice relaxing day.

I wore it to a Christmas event last year and hadn’t worn it since, and I thought it was sparkly and Christmassy enough to wear today!  Funnily enough it’s still…

I know some people buy their parents laptops etc and receive very luxurious gifts, but we don’t usually buy each other big things. My parents always ask me not to buy them anything in fact, but I get them a little something each anyway. It’s always nice to have something to open on Christmas morning. And they usually get me one gift, but nothing too fancy, just a…

You know what time it is.. Christmas Jumper time!! The festive season isn’t complete without a nice warm Christmas jumper. I love a good novelty jumper at this time of year, and I’m looking forward to wearing this one to work on Christmas Eve! This super cute Meowy Christmas jumper was sent to me from Truffle Shuffle, who sell awesome T-shirts, gifts and accessories inspired by old school trends.  I’m sure you all know by now I love a cute little kitty cat, so I was pretty certain that this was the ideal festive jumper for me! I wore it…

Happy 1st December everyone! Not long left now until the big day! I have not yet bought a single Christmas present. Naughty me! I have, however, started thinking about Christmas decorations and Christmas cake designs and other yummy treats. To be honest my favourite part of Christmas is the food. This evening I will be experimenting with my Christmas Cottage chocolate mould that I bought last year. I’m thinking of making a Chocolate cottage with sweets hidden inside for a couple of family members.. we’ll see how tonights experiment goes! Also, this afternoon I went hunting for a Christmas bedding…
