Last we I featured my Christmas Gift Guide for Men and this week it's the turn of the Girls! I've collated and tested some of the best, reasonably priced gifts available online and on the high street. So read on for a round up of Christmas gifts I'd love to find in my stocking this year.
Nothing gets a party started like a big bowl of delicious rum punch! I've teamed up with The Duppy Share, an award-winning blend of two complementary Caribbean rums and aged in oak bourbon casks, to bring you some festive rum punch recipes in the lead up to Christmas celebration. Mix up a bowl before people arrive then relax and enjoy a drop of punch with your guests.
We begin with the zesty Duppy St Clements which couldn't be easier to make:
Christmas is in the air and I've scoured the internet to compile some of my favourite gifts ideas to make your loved ones simile this Christmas without breaking your bank. First up we have gifts for the men.
Ah, Christmas. It’s a wonderful time of year, as long as you don’t look at your bank account. It’s hard to experience the same joy we felt as children during the festive season because there’s so much planning and spending to be done at this time of year. But Christmas doesn’t need to be a financial burden. Here’s how to save money during the festive season so that your budget feels bigger.
One of the wonderful elements of Autumn is the abundant squashes and pumpkins. Roasted to perfection these vegetables live and breathe warm, cosy nights wrapped up with furry slippers on. This Butternut Squash Hummus is the perfect accompaniment for Moroccan and Persian dishes or served as a starter or snack with fine crackers. For this recipe it is preferable to roast your squash for a deep, rich flavour.
Having recently moved we are on the hunt for a new kitchen, after all I spend most of my time in that room of the house, but with a new kitchen usually comes a huge price tag. Here are my top tips on how you can give your kitchen a makeover without breaking the bank.

Lest we forget...
It has been quite a few years since I properly picked up a paintbrush, but I received some shiny new paints for my birthday and when I sat down with blank paper before me a poppy instantly came to mind.
Remember those hectic, crazy busy days of summer? They seem like a lifetime ago! Now that Autumn is in full swing, you might have thought that the days would go a little slower, and your schedule and to-do list might not be as long as it once was…but many of us find ourselves dashing around even more then we were before. The school run, birthday parties, school events, parent’s evenings, not to mention everyday tasks that need completing – will we ever catch a break before Christmas?
October is one of my favourite months because it is my birthday! Lots of fun and laughs this year, in particular escaping from the Pharoah's tomb at Escape Rooms in London Bridge. That may have been the highlight of my year! Lots of cuddles with cousins, dinner parties and baking.
