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! You can cut them into sizes of your choice, but I will warn you that you’ll probably pick up more than one once you taste how scrumptious they are!     […]

Meanings behind the Christmas Tree Decorations – Blogmas Day 11

  Don’t worry, the truth is I decorated quite a while ago (possibly even in November but no one needs to know that) and every evening I get to come home and just stare at my beautiful christmas grotto.

We’ll start with the Christmas Tree. Last year, my nan had some money she wanted […]

Christmas Character mugs

It’s the 4th November and I’m putting out Christmas Decorations at work. School’s finished for the day and children are really enjoying the animated Elf and Santa’s that fill the shelves.
