A good cup of tea seems to be about the only thing getting me through these chilly and dark January days. There really is nothing quite like a cup of tea, made just the way you like it, (because lets face it, us British do all have a specific preference as to how we like our tea) in your favourite mug and snuggling up on the sofa watching
Big Brother the news and counting down the days until spring starts to show it's lovely face. Whether you're more of a builder's cuppa lover, milky and weak, herbal and healthy or if coffee is your bestest bud, there's no making our soul soothing hot drinks without a good old kettle.

Oh I do love my pooch...Miss Molly Moo. OK so being an Old English Sheepdog, she's more like a small donkey as opposed to a pooch, but she's a loveable, dopey old thing and if there's one thing my family are all guilty of, it's spoiling her perhaps a little too much. To the point where she's become a little crafty when it comes to bagging a treat or two from us and she's got the soppy-I-give-you-love-you-give-me-a-biscuit- trick down to a fine art. So when Barkbeats got in touch and asked if Molly would like to receive one of their exciting boxes full of canine treats and surprises, I just knew she'd be the paw-fect recipient.

I'm Back...! Well that turned out to be a month long break from blogging that I certainly didn't plan on taking. Apologies to any of my lovely readers who thought I might have done a runner and abandoned my blog. Sadly my poor old laptop came down with a nasty virus (to the evil internet trolls who create those bugs- you should seriously consider putting your technical brain cells to better use, you annoying lose bags!) and even though my poor brother spent numerous days and hours trying to get it back to health, the horrid germs kept coming back. Which left me with no choice but to invest in a shiny new blogging contraption...!

I always thought that one day I'd become this domestic goddess. But as life gets busier, it's becoming more apparent that we just can't be good at everything. My spare time is precious these days and I'm becoming less and less inclined to spend that time brushing up on my baking skills or learning how to sew. It's cheaper to buy cakes pre-made and Mum doesn't mind sewing on the odd button on for me anyway. But the wedding planner in me does love a little creative decor making. So when UK Christmas World got in touch and asked me to review their festive decor, it was the first time in a while I've been inspired to set aside some time, dust off my DIY skills and personalise a Christmas Wreath for our home. Just call me Martha...

There's something ever so slightly dangerous when Christmas shopping for a self-confessed shopaholic like myself. As much as I love buying gifts for people, I tend to adopt a "one for you and one for me" attitude when I'm bombarded with lots of gorgeous things, so I hope you'll appreciate the restraint and self discipline it has taken me to put together my first Christmas Gift Guide of the festive season without so much as one sneaky cheeky purchase for myself. It was tough, but I made it through...Dear Santa...I Want It All...

There's no hiding from it- winter has officially moved in as we're forced to switch on the heating and dust off our hats, gloves and scarfs. Goodbye warm sunshine...and hello short, dark, cold and grey days. Great. It's important that we look after our skin throughout the winter months and what better way to do it than with a dependable and familiar brand such as E45.
