My favourite thing about Christmas has to be yule log. I absolutely love it. Especially with a nice glass of milk! The best kind are the ones with the hard chocolate around them, but to be honest, I’m not too fussy!
I’m pretty sure if I didn’t have this blog there’s no way I would have attempted to try making my own yule log, especially as it’s so easy to buy them, but I do love a challenge!
When I was in high school, I took History and as part of that, our class took a day trip to Belgium. We visited a chocolatier to watch them make Belgian chocolate. As they passed round tasters, and I popped one in my mouth, my love affair of Belgian chocolate began and I spent all my pocket money in the gift shop. Oops.
I’ve never subscribed to a monthly box before, mostly because I’ve seen a lot of mixed reviews, especially around beauty boxes, where a lot of people seem increasingly unhappy with the products they’re getting. I don’t want to pay that amount of money every month for products I might not like and I can’t even give them to J, because he’s not going to wear them. As far as I know. He does rock eyeliner like a pro though 😉
But then word came of a new kind of subscription box. And I was sent one to try out 😀
I usually buy my mum a lovely card, send some beautiful spring flowers and call her up for a long chat 🙂 Although when I was younger, I used to buy my mum such treats as gold jewellery with Mother written across it, sorry Mum!! <3
This year, I thought I’d treat her to something a bit different! (Mum, if you’ve decided to read my blog, this isn’t the post you’re looking for. Go away and do some embroidery or something!!)
I love the fact that my blog now covers a broader range of subjects because it means I can include posts like this! I absolutely love baking, but I really don’t do it often enough. I thought it’d be fun to find some recipes I want to try out and review them for you!! Plus I’ll be including the recipe so you can make it too if it looks delicious enough 😀
Well, it’s a thoroughly miserable October afternoon, I’ve got the heating on and I’m half watching CSI. Thinking about all the things I’ve loved this month makes me feel decidedly more cheery though, so I’m sharing my favourites with you 🙂
