Ten 'Top 10' lists to round up my 2015 - which was a pretty peachy year all round!

These lists are in no particular order by the way, as that would have involved more effort than I was willing to put in on my holiday.

Mr and Mrs Christmas

Monday, 28 December 2015

As this was our first Christmas since getting married earlier this year, we decided to have Christmas Day just the two of us.  It was a lovely relaxing day filled with good food, good TV, and comfy clothes.  We got up at 9ish and exchanged presents - my faves including a popcorn maker, Ryan Gosling calendar, scrabble tile lights, Shaun The Sheep DVD boxset (shut up), this amazing clutch bag, and lots of beauty bits and chocolates.  I'd written out a plan the day before so approached the Christmas cooking pretty calmly - to be fair apart from peeling and chopping potatoes it was pretty much a case of putting things in the oven / microwave at various times, so not too taxing!

Recipe: Ginger & Chocolate Orange Tiffin

ginger and chocolate orange tiffin recipe

We had a Christmas bake off at work this week and I thought I'd share the recipe I put together as it was pretty damn tasty if I do say so myself.  I've never been one for baking cakes or muffins or anything that involves going in the oven, but I do make a mean traybake.  For our wedding I made a couple of different no-bake tiffins for our dessert table and they went down really well, so I decided to go with something similar for our bake off.

I took a malteaser traybake recipe that I used years ago and tweaked it slightly to make a festive sounding Ginger & Chocolate Orange Tiffin.  Oh my it was delicious!  If you like chocolate orange, then you have to try it!

Christmas Party Wishlist: Boohoo

Tuesday, 15 December 2015
The Christmas party season is well and truly upon us (it's my work do this Saturday - look out for an outfit post coming next week!), so it's time for my 4th and final Christmas party outfit wishlist of 2015.  So far I've picked outfits from ASOS, New Look and Very, and this time it's the turn of Boohoo.com.

Btw none of these posts have been sponsored in any way, there's no real reason why I chose those brands over anyone else - I just had a look at the sites I generally shop from and went for the 4 where I found the most outfit inspiration.

You Go Glen Coco: Youtube Edition

Saturday, 12 December 2015
You Go Glen Coco is a series where I share blog posts that I've loved reading recently.  The title comes from Mean Girls, one of my favourite films.  It's a place to "share the love" and hopefully highlight some new blogs for you to check out.  This time I'm doing a Youtube edition, so instead of blogs I've got some videos and channels for you to take a look at....enjoy!

I bloody love a mashup, and this Pop Party medley from Dodie and her sister Hedy is ace.  Their voices are so lovely together (Hedy is so good, especially considering how young she is) and it's a really fun run through of some of the years biggest hits.

Workwear Lookbook #2

Wednesday, 9 December 2015
Brace yourself for some top quality outfit pictures coming your way..... Ha yes, I still haven't quite managed to find the time to take proper outfit photos in the morning with the tripod and that - so I'm going to continue with shoddy mirror shots until that day comes.  At least you know these are genuine outfits and not ones taken purely for the blog (shady blogger side eye).

I did a similar post earlier in the year which you can read here.

Christmas Party Wishlist: Very

Sunday, 6 December 2015

The third of my annual Christmas Party Outfit Wishlists.  So far this year I've put together wishlists for ASOS and New Look.  This week it's the turn of Very....

My Gallery Wall

Thursday, 3 December 2015

If you've been watching my weekly vlogs you'll know that we've been making a few small decor changes recently, including switching up our gallery wall.  I've shown you our gallery wall before - when we had a living room makeover last year  - but as a few new art prints have made their way into our collection recently we needed to do some shifting in order to fit them in.  I've used washi tape to hold them up which looks nice and all, but annoyingly as there's a radiator underneath at least one poster a day starts to unstick!
