Reflection | 2016: A Year in Review

Two Thousand and Sixteen, you will certainly go down in the history books. You've been a bit of a rollercoaster both on a personal level and a global level which is why I'm not quite sure how to review you. I've not known a year yet to be such an emotional rollercoaster with some amazing highs and crazy lows. While globally everything seems to be up in the air which the news and media are reporting I thought I'd look at my personal year, it's highlights and lows, because you know, change starts with you.

Recipe | A Christmas Gin Cocktail

A Christmas Gin Cocktail

Tomorrow is christmas eve and I love being able to celebrate finishing work for a while and defeating the christmas wrapping. I also love gin.

We've both never understood tonic.

Baking is my thing, not cooking. Here are my favourite things about christmas:

Recipe | Chocolate Fudge Christmas Pudding Cupcakes

Chocolate Fudge Christmas Pudding Cupcakes

For day two of Blogmas I thought I'd share a recipe with you for my festive chocolate fudge christmas pudding cupcakes. Personally I'm not a fan of christmas pudding as I find it stodgy so these are my way of compromise with added chocolatey goodness.

Christmas | Homemade Christmas Decorations

Homemade Christmas Decorations

So I know I've been incredibly quiet on here recently, and I am sorry, but I've been crazy busy with work and assignments which has kept me away. Now I'm all handed in for the year and finished for work I am ready to feel festive and I thought I'd start by sharing some of my favourite festive things to do. I am going to try and do 12 days of Blogmas where there will be a new post each day with a mix of beauty, lifestyle, fashion and festive treats as I have so many things I want to share after being away for so long. Today I am going to show you some of my favourite homemade christmas decorations which really get me in the spirit of the season.
