Welcome to gift guide number two!
I’ve already shared my gift guide for people who love hosting parties, which you can find here, and we’re continuing on with another today.
As I said in my last guide, for me, Christmas is not about the gifts. However, sometimes you do want to get somebody a special something, or perhaps you need to (like for Secret Santa or a December birthday), so I thought I would put together some little lists for inspiration. I find other people’s lists and recommendations so useful and even if I don’t purchase anything from them, they often give me an idea for something I hadn’t thought of before. Continue reading
Gifting season will soon be upon us so I thought I would try my hand at ‘gift guiding’! For me, Christmas is not about the gifts and I honestly love baking gifts for people instead. However, sometimes you do want to get somebody a special something, or perhaps you need to (like for Secret Santa or a December birthday), so I thought I would put together some little lists for inspiration.
I find other people’s lists and recommendations so useful (I’ve already bought two gifts I found on one..) and even if I don’t purchase anything from them, they often give me an idea for something I hadn’t thought of before (or to search for a different style or more affordable option). I will be sharing five guides in total for food and travel and they will be a mix of things that I love and recommend, things I’ve purchased for others (I obviously can’t say what), or things that are actually on my wish list!

Remember, remember the fifth of November. Gunpowder, treason and plot.
It’s bonfire night on Monday!! It’s one of my favourite days of the year, but sadly I won’t be in England to celebrate and watch all the fireworks. However, I can share a warming recipe for those who’ll be standing out in the cold lighting the bonfires and watching the displays over the weekend and on Monday night. Continue reading
It’s officially summer and what better way to celebrate than with a cold, fruity glass of Pimm’s & Lemonade.
It’s a real thing. I promise.
I literally cannot go an Easter without eating this beautiful invention. In Peru, you cannot find hot cross buns (along with Cadbury’s creme eggs and mini eggs), which makes me unbelievably sad, so I have my mum either bring them to me in Lima when she comes to visit or freeze them until I go home later in the year. The problem is real. Continue reading
Happy Galentine’s Day everyone!
Today is the day we celebrate our best girl friends and the female relationships we all have in our lives. And with tomorrow being Valentine’s Day we’re celebrating love in all it’s shapes and sizes. So, what better way to do this than with some kind of food.
Last month I headed over to Germany to fulfil my dream of visiting a traditional German Christmas market. I decided on Munich as my destination (there are so many markets throughout Germany) as it meant that I could also visit the gorgeous snow-topped Bavarian Alps whilst there.
