This is less of a blog post and more of a little photo album of our Christmas Day. It’s the first year we’ve spent it together as my husband usually travels to Kent with his family. This year he spent it stuffing his face with chocolate, watching Doctor Who and playing some super cool card games we got gifted. We woke up to find that Santa had eaten his cookies and had placed loads of presents under the tree! (Yes, […]

Christmas Eve – BLOGMAS DAY 24

Christmas Eve is here. I’ve just arrived home after spending a beautiful 8 hour shift at work. 8 hours surrounded by the last minute christmas rush and those trying to find some bargains for the big day.

Every step… JINGLE JINGLE. Now it’s time […]

Mint Aero Rocky Road Recipe – BLOGMAS DAY 19

Mint Aero Rocky Road Recipe

Mint Aero has always been one of my favourites, and these Mint Aero Rocky Road treats definitely fill my Christmas chocolate craving. They’re easy to make, no-bake treats that can be served at a party, a movie night, or pop them in your lunch bag for work or school!
