Weekly Love: Week 162

Happy December everyone! ‘Tis officially the season for mulled wine, pine trees and brightly coloured wrapping paper. While this year I’ve been doing my best to get into the festive spirit with all manner of treats, decorations and hopefully music (once I get my Michael Bublé Christmas playlist sorted, that is), I don’t blame those of you who are not totally into the festive spirit yet. So, if you check out the first half of links in this edition of Weekly Love, you’ll find some of my favourite tips, recipes and DIY’s for the season, while in the second half I’ve kept it casual with usual programming and the like. Enjoy!
Weekly Love 4.12.15[1]

1. Salt Beef Bagels and Steak Rainbow Wraps at Little Joe’s Deli in Canterbury. | 2. Picking out a Christmas tree snuggled up in my brand new, super warm and uber soft Joules oversized blanket scarf. | 3. Tucking into Pieminster’s ‘Three Kings’ Turkey, Bacon & Parsnip pie which basically tastes like Christmas. | 4. Winter veg outside the greengrocers. | 5. Stunning ruby red pomegranates, again outside the greengrocers, this time on Deal High Street. | 6. A steaming mug of Spiced Apple Tea and my favourite White Company ‘Winter’ candle in a hot bubble bath.

7. I can admit to being more than slightly obsessed with my new Joules Cottage Herb hand wash I have on my bathroom sink. It smells so good – I’ve ordered the shower gel and scented candle too! | 8.  I threw a pizza party for Freixenet. Click through for my recipes, entertaining and decoration ideas. | 9. December sunrises in the countryside. | 10. Kicking off the festive season with a box of Godiva chocolates. | 11. Big love to Waitrose Food magazine for including another of my Instagrams in their latest issue. | 12. A roaring great fire in the living room.

What have you been enjoying this week, and what do you have planned for the weekend? I’m off to help judge Canterbury’s Christmas shop windows tomorrow; do any of you have any favourites yet?
