Blogmas Day 24 - Heavenly Chocolate Cake

Who doesn't love a good, gooey chocolate cake?! I know I certainly can't resist the yumminess and even better when your using a Mary Berry recipe, you know it's going to be good! Would you belie that this is the first time I've ever made an actual cake as opposed to cupcakes? That must show you how easy this recipe is - you can thank me later!

Blogmas Day 21 - Lingerie Edit

One of my absolute favourite things to buy for myself - and not just at Christmas - is lingerie. I admit, I may have a slight addiction to buying it! There are also so many brands to buy gorgeous lingerie from, but everything included below is under £40 too, so go ahead and treat yourself!

Blogmas Day 20 - Cheese Twist Recipe

One thing I always remember having around at Christmas time - and eating all of - were cheese twists. There's just something about them that is irresistible, especially when they have just come out of the oven and are all warm on a cold day! They are also so quick to make and you can literally fill them with anything alongside the cheese!

Who doesn't love getting new make up, especially when it's a new holiday collection. They are without a doubt some of my favourite rages to buy from because they are always so fun and the packing is festive and unique. The holiday collection from Pixi by Petra is certainly no exception to this rule and I was so excited to receive this gift and have honestly been using it all ever since it dropped through my letterbox!

Blogmas Day 9 - Protect Your Lips With Carmex

When it comes to winter, I always top up my supply of lip products, specifically lip balms as my lips get so dry with spending so much time outside. One brand I have used for years is Carmex, so I was so excited when they very kindly sent me their Christmas gift set.

Blogmas Day 8 - Orange Butter Biscuits

When it comes to Christmas, my house always seems to be filled with oranges - even used to get them in my stocking every year - so what better way to use them up then add them into these amazing buttery biscuits?! They are a little like shortbread, but no where near as thick or heavy and with the orange added in, it makes them taste so festive.

Blogmas Day 7 - Christmas Feet With SockShop

Is it even Christmas if you don't have at least one pair of Christmassy socks to wear?! Personally, I don't think so and although I now have a huge collection of festive/fluffy socks (maybe a whole draw full...) you can never have too many, so I was literally thrilled to receive not one but 3 amazing festive pairs from SockShop*.

Blogmas Day 5 - My Birthday!

It's My Birthday!! I kind of have a love hate relationship with m y birthday being so near Christmas - I love that its so festive everywhere and there is amazing food but at the same time, not many people can be bothered to do anything because it's so near Christmas! Luckily, I have some amazing friends who are pretty much always up for doing something!

Blogmas Day 2 - Galaxy Surprise Cupcakes

Probably one of the simplest recipes and while it isn't particularly Christmassy, they do taste amazing and will sure to be snapped up as soon as they've come out of the oven, but they do taste even better with the icing on top!
