Happy National Popcorn Day, everyone! I’m so excited to be collaborating with Popcorn Shed, again, in honour of this holiday. If you missed it, I reviewed some of their delicious popcorn flavours at the end of last year. This time, I’m bringing you my feel good films of all time! We all have those films that we’ll happily watch over and over again, just because we love them so much. And what else is a better accompaniment than popcorn?
My favourite flavour from Popcorn Shed has to be Berry-licious! I mentioned this in my last post, too. The raspberries add a lovely sour element to the sweetness of the chocolate, and the end product tastes amazing! If I had to choose only one flavour to have on my movie nights, it would definitely be this one. However, there’s such a selection at Popcorn Shed! You can even buy a little selection box of different flavours, so you can try every single one during your movie marathon.
They have a mix of savoury and sweet (and even a savoury and sweet) flavours for you to choose from, so there is something for everybody!
And now, onto my movie selections! I don’t know if I have a favourite genre – I’m more of a TV show person than a film person. So these happen to be a mix, but I love all of them equally and so much!
If we want to make a change about ourselves, or our lifestyle, we can do it at any time of the year. However, there’s something really clean about starting afresh at the start of a new year. Towards the end of 2018, I was beginning to feel lost. All that hasn’t gone away with the midnight bells, of course, but I’m determined to clear my head of all the bad thoughts. I want to join everybody else around the world in starting a new chapter.
This new chapter of mine includes some personal goals – healthy eating, exercise, scheduling my day and using my time more effectively. It also includes another over-branching goal: my blog. In the next few months, I’ll be approaching my 1 year mark for this blog. I’ve tried to make blogging work for me before, knowing that it would be something I’d enjoy, but it has never worked out at that specific time in my life. Part of me is glad that it didn’t, and that blogging came to me at a time where I’ve felt more mature and ready for it.
Happy Christmas Eve, everyone! If you read my Adagio Autumn Teas post back in October, you’ll know that I was always planning to do a Christmas version. The time has come, and today I’ll be bringing you Adagio Teas’ Winter collection! I’m a huge tea lover, and loose leaf tea is right up my street.
While Adagio do offer some teabags, a lot of their stock is loose leaf. I always feel like you have way more variety and can try so many more delicious teas with loose leaf! And for any tea lover, a homemade mini tea hamper would be a dream! If you’re stuck for gifts for any birthdays coming up over the next few months, I’d recommend making one for your loved one (especially if they love tea). Or, if they aren’t as obsessed as I am, make them a self-care gift set and include one of Adagio’s loose leaf teas. I think something like that would be so thoughtful and special as a gift!
There’s nothing more appealing than being fresh out the shower or bath, and popping on a clean set of jammies. The fluffier, the better! Every year at Christmas I always receive a super cosy pair, and throughout the year I just cannot resist Primark’s nightwear section. I have a good ol’ collection going, so today I’m going to be sharing with you my winter PJs in collaboration with Hunkemoller!
Hunkemoller have kindly sent me a pajama set that I’m very excited for! It’s more sexy than than cosy, but it is gorgeous. Such a great alternative if you want to wear something a little more pretty to bed. Or, if your family is anything like mine, maybe the heating is on full blast and you need to wear something more cooling for your own health.
As soon as I received my copy of Cordially Invited, I was desperate to make all of the recipes! However, I decided that the first one I’d try would be Zoe’s gingerbread recipe. I’ve never tried making gingerbread with treacle before, but now it’s definitely my preferred method.
Usually any biscuits I make turn out dry and very crunchy but this gingerbread was perfect. My uni friends gave them their seal of approval, so they must be good! I will apologise in advance for the icing, though – I’m still a newbie when it comes to icing and decorating, so it really isn’t my strong point. I tried to pick out the prettiest ones for pictures, but I didn’t have a lot to choose from.
