may your days be merry..

I always love getting dressed up on Christmas day. I don’t have a particularly big family, and in fact we don’t really do anything special, but it’s still nice to put on something new. This year I was tempted by the wide array of festive jumpers until this little number caught my eye, so as you can see I’m opting for the Christmas skirt instead…

Despite being stuck at work all afternoon, I came straight home to a house of baking…

With my Mam cooking mince pies I decided to try out a recipe a Martha Stewart recipe I’d spotted on Cupcakes & Cashmere for peppermint marshmallows. So the mince pies are now waiting to be iced, the marshmallows are busy setting and now I NEED to start wrapping my Christmas presents..

And I know it’s cheating but I wanted to share photos of my little treat from J, a vintage trifle case filled with treats (she knows me so well.. note the pastel nail polish and chocolates!)

Hope you all have a brilliant Christmas!
