2018_list
You’re either reading this at the very, very end of 2017 or the very beginning of 2018. Welcome, either way! As I’ve said before, I love the excuse of a whole new year to sit back and take stock of the past year and more importantly, think about the future. Now don’t worry, this isn’t going to me telling you that you should have resolutions for 2018, but rather a list of rather nice, easy things you can do to make 2018 even more brilliant that’s it’s (hopefully!) already going to be.

I definitely haven’t done nearly enough baking this Christmas. I feel like the festive period is usually fairly leisurely but this year it seems like I’ve been busy non-stop and unfortunately baking has taken a back seat! I have, however, managed to squeeze in one particularly delicious recipe you can whip up in minutes. If you read my post last week, you might remember me mentioning Lakeland’s Candy Cane bark. I loved it so much that I decided to recreate it myself because let’s be honest, not only is it much cheaper but it’s so easy there’s no excuse not to make some! With a hint of peppermint, the creamy chocolate works so well with the crunchy candy cane to create a sweet treat nobody can resist! So what are you waiting for?

Like any self-respecting person, I bloody love Christmas. I love getting to spend time with friends and family, I love giving (and yes, receiving!) presents and I really love the food. Let’s not beat about the bush, Christmas time has the best food. Big juicy turkeys, pigs wrapped in blankets and all those tubs of chocolates mmm… So when my local shopping centre Queensgate invited me along for a festive feast, you wouldn’t believe how quickly I confirmed my attendance.

It’s finally December! I feel like I’ve been tapping my foot for the last two months because let’s be honest, they are merely part of the large-scale countdown to CHRISTMAS! Have you guessed what I’m talking about this week? Yep, you got it. I’ve decided to begin the month of Christmas by compiling a few festive favourites.

Like most people, Matt and I like to get away as often as we can. Not just abroad but in the UK too. We like unwinding in spas, spending the week taking Luna on mammoth walks, curling up in front log fires…  We’re fortunate enough to have a few mini-breaks under our belts now but one thing we hadn’t experienced was an Airbnb. Airbnb is an online marketplace and hospitality service which enables people to rent out accommodation on a short-term basis or of course, to stay in these places.
