Creative Christmas 

So this year I’ve actually decided to be a bit creative with my Christmas gifts and I thought I’d share this little gift with you’s all. This year I was majorly stressing out because I couldn’t afford big gifts for my friends as much as I’d love to spoil them I couldn’t afford to, that’s when this affordable gift struck me. Flavoured homemade hot chocolate in mason jars! Although you can mix up the ingredients I just went for a peppermint ones with little crushed candy-canes and a spiced one featuring ginger and cinnamon. These were such simple and affordable gifts but they have a personalised touch to them. They are pictured below along with instructions  to create your own:


To create a single spiced hot chocolate all you need is:

  • Mason jar
  • Tag
  • String or ribbon
  • 60g of brown sugar 
  • 60g of cocoa powder
  • A teaspoon of ginger
  • A teaspoon of cinnamon 
  • Chocolate chips 
  • Marshmallows

Think it’s about time i made a blog post and explain all that’s been happening lately. Well it has been very hectic with sending away my UCAS and doing my Graded Unit, there are so many amazing University courses I’ve applied for and i can’t wait for my reference to be written so I can hopefully start receiving offers.(fingers crossed) On the University front my little sister has got two unconditional offers and I’m a super proud older sister heres hoping I’m just as lucky. Anyway as you know I’ve been super busy with college work and i cannot wait until Christmas and all the festivities/celebrations to begin starting with my Birthday night out this weekend, how am i 19 already? Hopefully i’ll also head off to the Christmas Market and show you’s my winter outfit and my festive photo’s. Also I have not updated you’s on my London trip a few months ago. I am so unorganised and i have been extra busy lately and will continue to be with our college fashion show coming in the next few months! Anyway heres some photo’s of me exploring London with Ross:

Again showcasing London’s beauty I am so in love with London and China town is such a pretty place.

Oh and of course i couldn’t forget my favourite place in London, Camden and of course the cereal killer cafe, i had amazing S’mores cereal there and the decor is so amazing if you are ever in London I definitely recommend going there.
