Only a few more sleeps until Christmas, not quite sure how it came round this quickly, says everyone and myself. Today I am sharing what products I will be looking to pamper with on Christmas Eve ready for the big day. Christmas Eve is finally a time to relax for me and switch off, so I love to have a pamper night in.
Christmas and New Year are meant to be the time to kick back and relax, work is finished (for some) and we get to spend time with our families and pig out on Quality Street and turkey. However the holiday period can actually be one of the most stressful times, let me know if any of these apply; worrying about money, not enough time, forgetting the great aunty Pat in the present run, trying to please everyone with cooking and TV choices? The list can go on and for some it can become a little too much.
Here is some advice to help combat stress this holiday season, as it should be a time to enjoy with others and most importantly for ourselves. Read More »
Christmas Day morning normally starts off with a drink of champagne or a cocktail and a warm croissant. Food and drink are always my priorities, even before opening presents. Therefore I thought I’d share with you a cocktail recipe, perfect for Christmas morning. The Breakfast Martini was originally penned by Salvatore Calabrese and includes gin with a hint of marmalade. However I decided to mix it up a little and use my Chase Marmalade vodka from the Chase Advent Calendar in place of the gin. Luckily for me Salvatore adapted his recipe when he visited the Chase Distillery, which you can find here.
So grab your ingredients and have a very merry morning! Read More »

I love New York is what it says on the t-shirts, but of course I am also saying this. New York is one of my favourite places to visit and this year I travelled to New York twice. The first trip I took was in May with family, the weather was still pretty chilly then and we did a few more tourist spots that I hadn’t seen before. Then in August I was lucky enough to go over on a press trip with Michael Bublé perfume, it was the first time I had visited in the summer and I was worried about how hot it would be, but it was lovely and warm and it wasn’t too humid. Each trip was completely different and gave me some more great recommendations to share with you.
So if you are planning a visit in the New Year, then here are my top ten things I’d recommend doing on your visit. Read More »
