A White Christmas – Blogmas day 5


Only 20 days left till Christmas! Hows your week been so far?

Today I am going to be talking about White Christmases, not just Christmas Day but just as I season.

In Britain, it will snow, but it’s the slushy kind that you can’t make snowmen with. Some years will can get more though.

When I was a child I lived in America for a while and it snowed a lot there! (I lived in Kansas but we went on holiday to Colorado) There would be snow throughout the Christmas season, sometimes on Christmas Day! I have so many fond memories of the snow and going sledging, making snowmen and snow angels!

Does it snow where you live? What kind of snow is it?

I hope you have a nice day!

Christmas Day or the run up to Christmas? – Blogmas day 4


Today I am going to be talking about A subject that I like to think about. Which do you prefer: Christmas Day or the run up to Christmas?

Run up to Christmas

For me the run up to Christmas Starts about midway through December maybe the 10th. Yes I get excited and start opening my advent calendar at the beginning at the month, but when I get really Christmassy is slightly later on in the month. I love Christmas shopping and Christmas baking and buying the Christmas tree etc. I truly is a magical time and one of my favourite times of the year.


Christmas Day and Christmas Eve

I love Christmas Day and Eve, I have so many fun traditions with my family and it is just the best couple days of the year! Thats all I have to say! Its just such a wonder fun time!


So I think that Christmas Day and Christmas Eve win this for me! Which one do you prefer!?


Christmas pancakes – Blogmas day 3

This morning for Breakfast I made myself  some pancakes. My favourite pancakes are Jamie Oliver’s American style pancakes from Tanya Bakes cook book.


So I made the batter and cooked it. I did just plain circles but I also did Shapes such as snowmen and stars with cookie cutters. Side note: I added ground cloves, cinnamon and ginger to the batter.

I drizzled it with maple syrup and ate! I really enjoyed this! What is your favourite breakfast to have as a treat on the weekends?

Also how is your December going? Which advent calendars do you have?

Have a great day!

November Favourites – Blogmas day 2

Hi! How’s your December gone so far??

Today I thought I would talk about some of the things I loved through November.

The first thing is a game called rider. It is so fun and really addictive! It is such a great thing to play when you’re really bored. Se if you can beat my high score if 70!

The next thing I have been loving is the white amber perfume form Next. I really love how this smells and its also quite cheap! I really think its a great scent for the winter months.

The other scent I love it the Snowella rollerball. I love the rollers balls, it’s so handy  and lasts for a really long time. I also really think that the scent is really subtle and pretty.

I also really love the body shop spiced apples hand cream. This smells AMAZING and keeps your hands moisturised. I bought this last year.

Another hadn’t cream I love is the Zoella hungry hands from her Christmas range last year. It smells so good! Just like Christmas!

Blogmas – Day 1


So it’s the 1st of December and the beginning of advent. Advent is one of my favourite times of the year, so I thought I will do Blogmas.

Blogmas is basically a blog post everyday throughout Advent. They are usually Christmas related.

I tried to do Blogmas last year but didn’t quite manage it near the end! I hope this year will be more successful!

So that’s the end of the little introduction.

I hope you all have a great December!

Advent Calendars


Where has November gone?? It’s almost December and I still feel as if it’s October! I love it in the UK as the weather is getting colder, and I’m really hoping for snow this year!

As we near Advent, people are buying advent calendars, and I am definitely going to get a chocolate one an possibly a beauty one, depending on this post!

I really want to get a nice (24 day) beauty advent calendar, but this is proving rather difficult because some of them are £100!!! I only really want to spend £20. Does anyone have any great ones?? They don’t have to beauty, they could be lifestyle or bath goodies as well. If you know any really good ones from £25 or under, please comment them below!!

Also which Chocolate ones do you think are the best??

Sorry for the random post!! I am going to do Blogmas during December, so I will tell you more about it then!!

Lush thunderstorm review 

Hello! I haven’t done a Lush review in a while so I thought I would do one today. The other day I popped into Lush to look at all the new Halloween and Christmas Range, I didn’t pick much up except for the Thunderstorm bath bomb which smells amazing! I think it was £3.50, But I’m not sure.


It was a lovely blue and green colour and fizzed really nicely in the bath.

I don’t know about other people but Watching a bath bomb fizz away is one of the most satisfying things.

When it had all fizzed away, my bath was a gorgeous blue colour with white swirls.

This is one of my favourite bath bombs from Lush, I would highly recommend.



PS Would you like me to do Blogmas this year?
