Butterbeer Recipe

Butterbeer Recipe

Hi lovelies, and welcome back to my blog! In the middle of autumn I decided I wanted to get into the Harry Potter spirit and make some Butterbeer. This recipe was heavily inspired by The Roaming Kitchen, and turned out pretty great. I think the only problem I had with this recipe was that it was very sweet, and you definitely only want to have a small mug of this at any one time. I tried to combine what would be “two” cups from this recipe, and it was very sickly towards the end. However, it was amazing!

I’ve been planning on writing this up for awhile now, but other opportunities came up and this post took a back seat. So, I thought, why not wait until December? Maybe it’s just me, but I love watching Harry Potter around Christmas. Especially the first two movies – I think it’s partly the nostalgia and warmth the earlier movies give, and partly just the magical Christmas scenes in the Great Hall. I’d happily make Butterbeer any time for the year, but I think autumn and winter are the better months to cuddle up with this drink.

Popcorn Shed Review

Popcorn Shed Review

Hi lovelies, and welcome back! I’ve been gifted some truly amazing popcorn by Popcorn Shed to review today, and I can’t stress enough how much I love some of these flavours. I cannot wait to share them with you!

The company was started by two cousins that just loved to bake, and experiment with popcorn and different flavours. (In their garden shed, of all places – hence Popcorn Shed.) I’ve tried experimenting with popcorn myself with Joe Wicks’ Chocolate Orange Popcorn Bars recipe, and it is difficult to get the flavour and consistency you want. When I made mine, it ended up losing most of it’s crunch. However, Laura and Sam have created the perfect recipes and have maintained texture, as well as amazing flavours!

Christmas Gift Guide for Him

Christmas Gift Guide for Him

Hi lovelies, and welcome to my third and final gift guide! This time we have my Christmas gift guide for him. As I mentioned in my Christmas Gift Guide for Her, although this is a Christmas gift guide for him, these are just the presents I have bought for the men in my life. I do appreciate that many, if not all, of these presents can be bought for people of any gender!

And if you’re looking for Christmas present ideas for your furry friend, you can check out my Gift Guide for Pets, too! Now, let’s get into it!

Christmas Gift Guide for Pets

Christmas Gift Guide for Pets

Hi everyone, and welcome back to another gift guide! This time, it is my Christmas gift guide for pets. As some of you might know, I got my first dog this summer and it’ll be his first Christmas this year (with us, and just in general!). I’m very excited, and can’t wait to see how he reacts to all the presents and wrapping paper.

I decided that since I was doing gift guides this Christmas, that it would be silly not to put together one for pets! I’m sure I will pick up even more for Alfie in the coming weeks – he’s the love of my life, I have no doubt that myself and my family will spoil him rotten.

Christmas Gift Guide for Her

Christmas Gift Guide for Her

Hi lovelies, and welcome back! Before I start, I just want to say that although this is a Christmas gift guide for her, these are just the presents I have bought for the girls/women in my life. I do appreciate that many, if not all, of these presents can be bought for people of any gender. My gift guide for him will be similar in that you may find something for anybody on there. That one will be up next, so come back tomorrow for more gift ideas!

I started buying my Christmas presents a couple of months ago, so I could get on top of everything before my exams hit. Because of that, I’ve been in the Christmas spirit for ages. I’m so excited to finally be able to show you what I’ve got my loved ones this year, and share this Christmas spirit with you!
