Happy Monday Everyone and more importantly Happy ONE Week till Christmas! Today I am talking about candles. Yes ever since discovering Bliss and Bling Candles I have been mildly obsessed. I was getting pretty shaky at the fact my candle supply was getting far too low for my liking but thankfully the stars aligned and I met up with the lovely Emma at one of the Christmas Fairs.  There is now has a whopping selection of standard candles as well as a host of Christmas scents to get us in that festive mood. Eagled eyed readers from my last review may…

Baby it’s cold outside … Yes Christmas is creeping around the corner, I cannot believe quite how quickly December has flown by, and now we have 10 days until the big day! Which camp are you in?

Love Bailey’s? Love baking? Then look no further; Lily Vanilli’s Baileys recipes are here. I have said it before and I will say it again, I don’t see the fascination with Bailey’s in terms of a straight forward drink, however baking is a whole different realm and Lily Vanilli’s has got my baking hands tingling.  Baileys have teamed up with London baker Lily Vanilli and she has concocted some easy peasy bakes for us to whip up at home in a flash. There are several recipes to chose from ranging from Bailey’s Fudge to Chocolate Cake with Baileys Salted Caramel and Baileys…
