From the blog...
I don’t know about you, but sometimes finding unique presents for family members year on year can be a very difficult task. Once you’ve done the socks and pyjamas and hampers and framed photos in previous years, the ideas start to run dry. My parents are especially good at telling us they have everything they...

With both our wedding anniversary and my husbands birthday at the end of November, thoughts of Christmas and all things festive definitely don’t enter our household until at least the 1st of December. And then wham, bam, I find myself in the position I’m in now – somewhat flabbergasted that there’s now only 11 days... Read more »Read this post
It’s no big secret that we love Aldi for all of our shopping needs in this household, but since having Evie and becoming a family who now has to add nappies and kid friendly snacks to our weekly shop, it’s the ONLY supermarket you’ll find us in. I think I probably find myself frequenting our... Read more »Read this post

A lifestyle blogWith honesty at its core
What started as an online diary back in 2009 (!), this lifestyle blog has developed into honest space to document my daily life and loves, from fashion to food to family. With a penchant for over sharing and writing from the heart, I treat my blog like chatting to old friends and honesty is at its core. Here you’ll find style (both my wardrobe and my home), recipes, travel adventures and tales from the frontline of parenting. In short; musings from my everyday life, which I hope can inspire yours…read the blog
The Baking Club
Love of a good slice of cake (either baking it or eating it)? Who doesn’t right? The Flaky Bakers Club was started as a way to find and connect fellow cake lovers and create a community of baking enthusiasts of all levels. A friendly cake community, open to everyone and aimed at those of us who have a passion for baking but admittedly aren’t always Pinterest perfect. With a monthly theme, a friendly gang of bakers ready to discuss biscuit vs cake, and lots of support, we celebrate the fails as much as the wins. Whether you want to sign up and share your bakes or simply get some recipe inspiration, take a browse…Join the Club
December's Baking Club Theme
ALL THINGS FESTIVE
Could it really be anything else this month? I’m so excited for Christmas this year, especially now that my daughter is getting older and starting to understand it all – it’s brilliant making all of the traditions with kids!
I absolutely love baking up a storm in time for Christmas and I’m guessing you guys too so the time has come to indulge all of those Christmas cliches – mince pies, gingerbread cookies, truffles, you name it! Let’s go!
Happy Baking and can’t wait to see what you all come up with!
