Christmas Tea Haul

Christmas Tea Haul

Christmas, for me, is about getting cosy and enjoying time with friends and family, and so often that involves a cup of tea. Whether it’s reading a book, playing a board game or making snowflake cookies, it’s a guarantee that I’ll have a half-drank cup […]

Peppermint White Hot Chocolate

Stocking Stuffer Gift Guide

Stocking Stuffer Gift Guide

I have a firm belief when it comes to gifting: birthdays are for one or two larger presents, and Christmas is for a hundred little bits and pieces.  I’m not sure if it’s because I love the look of a pile of presents underneath my […]

Christmas Hygge

Christmas Hygge

Christmas is the season of love and family and cosiness and friends and happiness and glitter and gingerbread. Perhaps the most important out of the two – for me at least – is cosiness and happiness – which is basically hygge in a simpler form. […]

Zoella’s Double Choc-Orange Cookies

Zoella’s Double Choc-Orange Cookies

I’ve been watching Zoella videos on Youtube for years. Zoe has introduced me to so many things over this time, including Origins skincare, a Halloween obsession and my truest love – the Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oils. It’s getting to the point that if […]

Vlogmas 2017: Who I’ve Been Watching

Waking up with chocolate and Snowball tea, spending every evening in front of the Christmas tree, and afternoons accompanied with back-to-back episodes [episodes?] of vlogmas. That’s what December usually entails for me. There’s nothing I love more than taking a peek into other peoples lives. […]

DIY Hot Chocolate Bar

DIY Hot Chocolate Bar

If there’s two things I love this time of year, it’s hot chocolate and festive interiors. So I figured – why not combine the two? I’ve been seeing hot chocolate bars all over Pinterest for years now, and while people generally have them at parties […]

LUSH Christmas Haul

LUSH Christmas Haul

It should be of no surprise by now that I am a total LUSH addict. I think my recent bath bomb haul shows you that! Today I’ve got something a little smaller but a whole lot more festive.  Now, I certainly wasn’t the only person freaking […]

DIY Gingerbread Chai Sugar Scrub featuring Bluebird Tea Co

My Christmas Mug Collection

My Christmas Mug Collection

If there’s one thing I love during the Christmas season, it’s hot drinks… …whiiiiiich probably doesn’t make much sense as it’s kinda scorching hot here in December, but I still don’t mind sweating my way through a festive hot chocolate or cup of tea. There’s […]

3 Simple Tea Based Mocktails for the Holiday Season featuring Bluebird Tea Co

There’s something beautiful about a fancy cocktail in a fancy glass at your fancy as heck Christmas party, but the reality is *SHOCK HORROR* that some people just don’t like to drink.  I wouldn’t class myself as a big drinker, but I also can’t say […]

Salted Caramel Baileys Cocktails

Salted Caramel Baileys Cocktails

Salted caramel has become the festive flavour of the past few years, and I for one am not complaining. The sharp taste of salt paired with the smooth, buttery sweetness of caramel is what most would consider a match made in heaven, and so it should […]
