DECLUTTERING & PLANNING FOR THE NEW YEAR

So today has been a bit of a ‘let’s declutter and get ready for 2020’ kind of day. I have managed to get all the Xmas stuff down and put away - although it looks completely bare!


ROBLOX FANS - CHECK THESE OUT!

It is no secret that Alessia is an absolute mad Roblox fan . She loves playing online with her friends from school , it’s one of her favourite things to do to unwind after a busy day of learning .


THAT POST CHRISTMAS CLEAR OUT WITH ANYCLEAN , THE CLEANING SERVICE THAT ACTUALLY WORKS

So Christmas has been done and although we have all really enjoyed the festive period and spent quality time with the family - the house does resemble what can only be described as a complete tip!.


CHRISTMAS DAY 2019

Merry Christmas everyone!. I hope you have had a lovely day and are feeling merry  this evening :). We’ve made the most out of today but have got two really poorly little ones .



CHRISTMAS EVE BUFFET | FAMILY TRADITIONS

Christmas Eve! Only one more sleep and it’ll be Christmas Day. The girls are in bed and I am tackling the last minute wrapping- yes I am that person.


WINTER WONDERLAND 2019

Winter wonderland is a tradition we started 4 years ago. We go every year before Christmas and it really does start the magical Christmas time for us :)


CHRISTMAS CRAFTS & BAKING

Today has been all about baking and crafts. The Christmas holidays are in full swing and we love it!. I love when Alessia breaks up from school - no school runs or super early mornings - bliss!


WE FINALLY WENT TO SEE FROZEN 2

So this morning I booked us all in to see Frozen 2. Friday nights are normally our date night and we go out for dinner or go to the Cinema but I decided it was going to be family night and booked us in at the cinema.


EASY PEASY BISCUITS

One thing I have always done with the girls is bake . It’s so easy to do with them and if you set everything up before hand - it’s even better! :)


DO YOU KNOW YOUR NUMBER PLATE LAW?


We all know that having a number plate on your vehicle is a legal requirement don’t we? , but the law  is a little bit more specific than just having a number plate.


GINGERBREAD MAKING

One thing we absolutely love this time of year is gingerbread men . I’ll be honest , I love anything gingerbread , especially coffee :)




TREAT YOURSELF THIS CHRISTMAS

Now I don’t know about you , but this time of year I am so busy making sure everyone else is happy and gets what they want , that I completely forget about myself .

OUR 5 FIVE FAVOURITE FESTIVE BOOKS THIS YEAR

We are definitely a house of book worms . We are always reading and I love the fact that the girls take after me and have such a love for books .


SLOW COOKER POTATO & LEEK SOUP

Slow cookers are perfect for soups . You literally pop all your ingredients in , and then blend it up when you are ready to dish it up.


PLAYGROUP CHRISTMAS PARTY

This morning it was Nila’s Christmas party at her playgroup , and honestly she was so excited for it - she couldn’t wait .


GET THE LOOK THIS CHRISTMAS WITH FEMME LUXE

Christmas is only a few weeks away and I know some of you will already have it covered!. If like me , you are still struggling to find the perfect Christmas dress for the big day or for the festive party season then look no more.

CHRISTMAS GIFTS FOR THE BOOK WORMS :)

If you’ve followed me for a while then you will know we are all book worms and love a good book. I think reading is such a great way to relax and let loose after a busy day , not only for you but also for the little ones .


5 CHRISTMAS GIFTS FOR THE PERSON WHO HAS EVERYTHING

When it comes to Christmas, we all have that gift that we would absolutely love and keep our fingers ( and toes ) crossed for it , don’t we?. What if though, there is nothing your loved ones or friends wanted and they had everything they needed?


CHRISTMAS GIFTS FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY

We all get stuck at some point don’t we when it comes to Christmas gifts and what to buy everyone . I thought I’d share with you some Christmas gift ideas for the whole family so you will find a little something for everyone In this Christmas gift guide :)


SALTED CARAMEL FESTIVE SWIRLS

Mince pies are my absolute favourite thing at this time of year . A cup of tea and a mince pie in the evening is what I am all about and we love making our own.


A REAL TREE FOR CHRISTMAS | PINE AND NEEDLES

This time of year is full of traditions isn’t it?. We get our favourite music in a playlist , the decorations from the attic and the traditional dancing Santa’s that we all love to hate from out the cupboard.


WIN A MAGICUBE SAFARI PARK

One of Nila’s favourite toys at the moment has got to be geomag’s magicubes. We were first introduced to them at blogon this year and honestly she has been hooked ever since she got her first little set.


OUR TREE IS UP !!

We’ve been so looking forward to getting our Christmas tree as we’ve had a real one again this year. I can honestly say having a real one does make the home feel more Christmassy, plus it smells amazing!.


RAW NATURAL’S CHRISTMAS PAMPER HAMPER

When it comes to beauty hampers and pampering , there are never any men’s products available, and every year I find myself trying to hunt down some little treats for Mezz for Christmas.


CHRISTMAS SHOPPING IN BIRMINGHAM

Scott and I rarely get the chance to get out without the three girls , and with Christmas just around the corner we had managed to sort out a day trip to Birmingham to get as much Christmas gifts bought as possible :)


BE MERRY THIS CHRISTMAS

When it comes to some members of the family - you really can’t beat a cheeky bottle of gin or a bottle of Prosecco with some chocolates can you? :)
