Christmas Day 2016

I was woken up by the sound of two little voices telling me that Father Christmas had been. I had expected an early morning just like I used to wake up before it was light when I was a child. I was all about to get out of bed when I checked my phone for the time. It was 3:40am! …

#MyHolidayParty – Our Fake Christmas Day 2016

For many reasons I haven’t celebrated Christmas back at my Mums house for a while. But thankfully the relationship that was very broken has begun to fix itself after three years of turmoil. I finally felt at the stage where I wanted to spend a Christmas with my Mum, my Grandad and my little (in age not height) brother. So …

Father Christmas Experience At Marsh Farm Animal Adventure Park

Every year since I was a little kid I can remember heading off to the garden centre to visit Santa with my Grandparents. It was a Chrismas tradition that I absolutely loved. There is an 8 year gap between my little brother and me so I still got to see Santa up until I had my first daughter. Then the …

My Letter From Santa Claus Review

I can’t quite believe how fast Christmas is approaching this year. It’s just a month away and I feel completely unprepared this year despite the fact we have actually done our toy shopping. I do feel super festive though and am determined this year to push the festivity to the limits. My Letter From Santa Claus got in touch recently …

The Cheeky Elf Review

When I was a child Christmas meant a time for Father Christmas to bring presents. On Christmas Eve we would set out the plate for him; a mince pie, some milk and a carrot for Rudolph. We’d then pretend to be asleep for as long as possible before our eyes forced it upon us. I remember waking up before it …

Christmas 2015

The build up and anticipation for Christmas this year was immense for me. For some reason it all felt so much more magical this year than any other year. I partly blame blogging for that as I am aware of other people’s traditions, decorations and stories that surround Christmas. Since last Christmas we’ve been saving our Nectar and Tesco purely …

How To Make An Angel Outfit From A Pillowcase

When I googled how to make P2s nativity costume I was surprised to actually be stuck for finding any tutorials. It was probably the places I was looking or I’m just a blind bat, but I took Pinterest photos for inspiration and made it up as I went along. I am actually so pleased with the result, she’s an Angel …

“I’ve decided to take part in the Vlogmas hype”

I can’t believe we are actually in the run up to Christmas now. I feel like this year has gone so quickly!! Last year I made the girls a Santa sack each although I still haven’t finished P1s which is really awful of me. Seeing as I’m actively delving into the world of YouTube I’ve decided to take part in …

It’s December. Where the heck did this year go?! December means it is the run up to Christmas and of course that means decorations go up and presents are either bought or definitely about to be. We were invited along to Westfield Stratford City for the girls to visit Santa. We only told them about our trip the day before …

My Christmas Wish List 2015

I have been putting off my Christmas list this year because I have already told anyone who has asked the things I’d really like, a duvet set and clothes mainly, so there didn’t seem a need to write a post. But I’ve been reading other wish lists and gift guides and have seen a few things that I’d love to …

A Letter From Santa

I can’t believe I’m about to write a post about this, already, but with Halloween over it’s time to start thinking about Christmas. There I’ve said it, I’ve said the C word. I am so excited about Christmas this year but I haven’t actually started even thinking about it yet. The shopping, the decorating and the food. We were contacted …

Christmas 2014

I sort of took a bit of an unexpected blogging break over Christmas. It wasn’t the plan and I wanted to blog but thanks to the newest update of the wordpress app, I’m unable to add featured images or any images without the app crashing. I wasn’t about to compromise on quality for the sake of a few posts so …

“I get such a warm fuzzy feeling when I receive gifts”

There’s certainly a trend in the blogging world right now with Christmas just two weeks away! Every where I look there’s photos of Christmas decorations, food, gift guides, Christmas jumpers and product reviews. Oh the reviews are coming in thick at the moment for me and at times I’ve felt completely overwhelmed and slightly scared I’ll lose some readership by …
