So even though I cook a lot, I’ve just realised so far the only recipes I’ve put up on here are alcoholic ones! Oops. Today I’ve got the simplest winter warmer for you. I made this at the weekend for a friend’s Christmas Cocktails do and it went down a STORM. There were a few sore heads the next day ;). They’re super easy, and dress them up with a sprig of holly tied to the glass, festive straws and some mince pies, and you’ll be nailing it on the hosting front! Let’s tuck in, shall we?

London loves Christmas. As someone who LOVES living in London, and LOVES Christmas, this is truly my favourite time to be in the city (although, I say that when Summer rolls round, too, so…). There’s so many fun, Winter-themed pop-ups, and you’ve probably heard of the obvious ones like Winter Wonderland, Ice Skating at Somerset House etc… but my housemates and I have discovered something a little different…

  A fleeting post from me but I just wanted to shout about these awesome collars I found on Amazon for £8.00 each 🙂

  At home, we have a big pile of wellies in a variety of sizes by the utility room door. These usually tend to be available on a ‘first come first serve’ basis and are happily well-worn, caked in mud and for the most part, pretty old now!

  God, I love this time of year! I love it for lots of reasons, there’s a feeling that change is in the air, I love the smell of smoky mornings, the feel of wrapping up in a scarf for the first time, of opening a bottle of red wine by a big fire place and I mostly love it because every year come November I treat myself to a ‘Staycation’, taking a week off to go home, hang out with my mum, dad and dog, and go for long walks in the country to look at all the leaves changing.

  I have always been pretty lazy when it comes to skincare. I’ve always desperately wanted to be a beautyblogger, you know the ones who somehow seem to know what’s on trend, what’s the best thing for a certain *type* of skin, and who all seem to know everything ahead of the curve. I’ve come to accept that I am just *not* one of those people. That said, if there’s one thing I love, it’s a bloody good pamper! One of my best gals and I try to go away to a spa together at least every couple of months but when schedules don’t allow, we tend to run to Superdrug or Boots and stock up on all the good things, acquire a bottle or 2 of prosecco, chuck on some terrible TV and relax from the comfort of our own home!
