Xmas Day, Boxing Day.. and the day after!

As we mentioned in a previous post, this year marked the first time we spent the whole of xmas together. We had a lovely few days, so we thought we'd share the photos we took!

A Reflection Of The Year

The festive season is coming to a close, which means in a few days it will be 2016! So we wanted to have a little reflect on the year and share some of the things we learnt and achieved in 2015.

Wall Paper Christmas Wrapping

I've always loved the idea of using textured wallpaper as Christmas wrapping paper, so this year I did!

Four Christmases

When (like both of us) you have parents who are separated, Christmas time can be really crazy and super busy! Although we both had very traditional Christmases as children, as we've gotten older we've embraced the changes each year brings!

10 Scrooge Statements

Sorry to kill your Blogmas day 15 vibe, but we thought we'd shed some misery to dilute the overbearingly lovey dovey Christmassy posts you've been reading for two weeks. Don't get us wrong, we LOVE Christmas and Winter and all that, but there are also things that we absolute hate heres it is! Merry Christmas!

White And Gold Decorations

For about 15 years, Hayley's Mum has collected white, silver and glass decorations. This year she has added some gold bits in (some from 50 and 30 years ago), and we though we'd share them with you as it's our last Christmas at home!

Gingerbread Cake

I can bake two things, and luckily for Blogmas day 13, one of them is 'Gingerbread Cake!'

Wreath Christmas Cards

As we missed Blogmas day 12, here is the first of two today! And it's a crafty one! As I really like wreaths at the moment, I wanted to incorporate our blog logo into a card design this year, and I thought I'd show you how I did it.

Something a little different for today's Blogmas! After 10 years together, and 18 months hard saving... we have FINALLY bought a house!

Alternative Christmas Songs

It's only Blogmas day 7, and we don't know about you, but we're already sick of the same old Christmas songs! So we've made you a little alternative playlist of songs that you don't hear often at Christmas, if ever!

Christmas Craft Fairs

Happy Blogmas day 6 peeps! One of our absolute favourite things to do around Christmas time is go to a craft fair!

Scandinavian Inspired Christmas Decoration Ideas

Blogmas Day 5! We haven't put up any of our own decorations yet, and Scandinavian interiors have always inspired us (probably as Hayley is part Swedish!) This will be our last Christmas at home, so we've decided to get a little tree for Hayley's room that has our own decorations on. Here is what we have been looking at on Pinterest for inspiration!

Our Favourite Christmas Films, TV Specials & Vlogmas

Happy Blogmas Day 4! Every November we both watch the Harry Potter films, it's like our bridge between Halloween and Christmas! But as soon as the last Deathly Hallows finishes and Hayley's wiped away the tears...we're allowed to start watching the Christmas stuff!

Luxury Christmas Gifts For Under £50

Blogmas Day 3! Sometimes at Christmas (and birthdays), you want to buy something nice, but don't always have the money to. But some things, although expensive for what they are, are not that expensive in the grand scheme of things. So instead of buying your friends/family £50 worth of little bits, why not treat them to 1 luxury item that they wouldn't necessarily buy themselves?

DIY-Minimal Bunting Advent Calendar

A very merry Blogmas day 2 to you all! Today i'm showing you how to make a minimal alternative advent calendar, for those of you who prefer your Christmas decorations to be a little less in your face! And the best thing, is that you can use it as a normal pin board for the rest of the year!

Dear Diary- November 2015
