April kicks in tomorrow and all eyes are now firmly turned to Easter. Be it the Easter Sunday lunch table or as a home décor, decoration is an essential part of the Easter season.
Eggs are obviously a must as are colourful flowers. In addition to the classic early bloomers such as good old daffs, noble geraniums are perfect for floral Easter decorations. With their beautiful blooms and vibrant colours, these flowering beauties brighten up your home, long before the bedding and balcony plant season begins.
I've teamed up with the flower experts at Pelargonium for Europe show how to create magical Easter
decorations with noble geraniums, hen and quail eggs.

I was very intrigued to see what my Amazon Beauty Advent Calendar had in store each day leading up to Christmas Day. Let's take a look inside and see what surprises this £60 beauty advent calendar has in store...
Christmas is just around the corner and this year I have decided to do a round up of the little gifts which make perfect Christmas stocking fillers for kids! I love the stockings more than the big presents. They are super fun to open and you never know what you are going to get (although it is essential mine includes a chocolate orange).
