☆ Blogmas- Xmas Hot Drinks Menu ☆

17/12/2017

I love this time of year when all the Christmas Hot Drink menu’s come out. I always adapt them as I am not a lover of coffee or tea. I like hot chocolate and green tea. I usually when visiting a coffee shop with have a green tea or if I feel in the mood have a hot chocolate with either caramel or hazelnut syrup.☀

This year when I saw Starbucks menu, I saw they had a Gingerbread latte, so I went to Starbucks with my sister where we both order a hot drink drink. I had a hot chocolate with Gingerbread syrup and my sister had a Fudge Hot Chocolate. I love the taste of the hot chocolate it had a kick of cinnamon which I love. I had a sip of my sisters hot chocolate and found it sickly but she enjoyed it. ☀

Then another week in November we went to Starbucks again where I had a hazelnut hot chocolate and Chloe had white chocolate mocha. I did enjoy the hazelnut hot chocolate and would 100% have again. My sister did enjoy her drink but does recommend to stir the drink with a little wooden stick to ensure the syrup isn’t left at the bottom.☀

☆ Blogmas- New Trainers and Speaker ☆

15/12/2017

I went shopping and popped into JD Sports which is something I never do, I went into to look at the sports wear and quickly glanced over at the trainers. This was a big mistake as I saw 3 pairs I loved in the junior section. They are all by Nike and are huaraches. ☀

I couldn’t get my size in store so ordered them online and then had to exchange them as the shoe came up too big. I got the Huaraches Ultra SE in the burgundy colour in a size 3. I only wear trainers for the gym and thought it was time to upgrade as my old huaraches were looking tired and well loved. I loved the colour and the new shape so much and have since worn them to the gym every-time. They are so much lighter to do sprints in which is something I need when doing 10 sprints to help raise my heart rate.  ☀

I have my eye on the other two pairs which I am hoping to pick up before Christmas or hoping they go in the boxing day sale. I love the shoe and hardly ever buy trainers so don’t feel as guilty for treating myself.☀

When working out at home, having a shower or just at home I love using music as a motivator. So I picked this UE Wonderboom up in pink with a voucher I had. I got £10 off it so was very happy. I ordered online and did click and collect with with Waitrose for next day delivery. I was very happy with my service and use the Wonderboom most days so it is such a good investment.☀

☆ Blogmas- Xmas cards and Wrapping ☆

13/12/2017

For this year I was organised with getting my Christmas cards and wrapping paper. I love getting Christmas cards and am always mindful when buying them to ensure they are something I like. For many years I have bought Charity Christmas cards as it is so important to give back to the community. ☀

This year I picked my Christmas cards up from Waterstones and I love them so much. The cards are “Guess how much I love you” characters from the book I loved as a child. In the box you get 20 cards with four different designs. These cost £4.99. I only needed one box but I love them so much. ☀

For wrapping paper I looked online and found some amazing paper. I visited Dulemn and picked this navy paper up which has gold stars and moon’s on. If you know me you know I love everything to do with the moon and stars. It was £2 a roll for 5 meters. I love this paper because if I don’t use it all at Christmas it is suitable for all year round.☀

I also picked up a few gift bags from primark they were 90p each and have a cute gingerbread on.☀

☆ Blogmas- Xmas tree decorating ☆

11/12/2017

We always get a real Christmas tree every year. So this year I am taking pictures of picking the tree and also decorating our Xmas tree. ☀

IMG_5535

We visited our local garden centre on Saturday the 9th to pick our tree as a family. This year we managed to pick a tree in record time of about 10 minutes. We chose a tree that was the perfect green and a sensible height of 5 foot.  At the garden centre they also offered all customers a free hot chocolate. It tasted amazing and I even managed to burn my tongue on the contents. OOPS. ☀

We decorated the tree on Sunday the 10th while listening to Xmas songs using my UE Wonder boom which produced amazing sound. We also got the Malteaser Teaser out to get right in the festive spirit. ☀

Let me know if you get a real tree or have an artificial tree at Christmas. ☀

☆Blogmas- Shortbread Making ☆

10/12/2017

I visited lots of different supermarkets and decided to pick Sainsbury’s. I picked up a box set which gives you ingredients and decorations to make Reindeer shortbread’s. The box costs £2 and I think it is a good value and an amazing task to do with friends or family around the festive season.  ☀

IMG_7502

My sister and I one Saturday decided to make the box. The instructions were easy to follow and all you need was unsalted butter. We started by mixing in all the ingredients together to create a dough. Then we rolled out the mixture and used the cutter provided to create shapes. We placed on a baking tray lined with grease-proof paper and put in the oven for 10 minutes. ☀

We allowed the cookies to cool and then decorated them with icing and the jelly beans provided. The biscuits tasted nice and looked amazing. This really got us in the spirit for Christmas. ☀

Let me know if you have picked any box sets up or if you have made any festive treats this year.☀

☆ Blogmas- Xmas Shopping with me ☆

06/12/2017

I thought this would be a nice post for blogmas. So I am taking all of my followers along to the shops with me and then showing all of you what I picked up and why. Unfortunately I can’t say who the gifts are for as family members and friends read my blog.☀

To start with I went to Boots to get some small stocking fillers for people. I have recently tried Burt’s Bee lip balms and OMG I love them. So I went and picked some up for small gifts.  ☀

Next I went to Paperchase to get some pens. I love pens and stationary in general. I think pens are so practical. I love that I choose a different pattern pen for all my friends and family members. This is a nice part of the gift which I get to Personalise.☀

I then visited SkinnyDip where I picked up some phone cases at a discounted rate for gifts. ☀

I also visited to Bentalls a local shopping centre and had a browse at some of the items they have on offer. They stock OH K, which is a brand which sells super cute items like skincare, nail care and also stationary products.☀

Let me know how your Christmas shopping has been going☀
