End of the Year and all that

It is almost time to say goodbye 2015 and hello to 2016 (where has this year gone?!) And of course it is that time of year for all the 'new year, new me' rubbish.

I always try and do a New Year's Resolution. Last year it was to continue being a veggie and cook something new every month which I did.

This year... Well this year I am going to expand some of my skills further - hopefully!

So here is 'End of the Year, New Years resolution'...

Goodbye 2015

As we say goodbye to what has been a rollercoaster of year, it is time to reflect.

From the general election, the refugee crisis and high profile deaths to same-sex marriage legalisation, and the new Bond film Spectre, it has been a crazy ride!

End of the year!
But here are my highlights of the year I have had!

So here is 'Goodbye 2015, A look back'...

Move over Christmas pudding

First things first... Can you believe it is Christmas Eve already like where has December gone?!?!?!?!?!

For the penultimate post I will be showing you have to make a delicious alternative to Christmas Pudding!

Yummy meringue ready for decorating
I cannot stand Christmas Pudding, I personally think it is disgusting and so does the rest of my family therefore I bake something every Christmas Eve for Christmas dinner dessert.

Last year was a gingerbread house (that took forever) and this year... A fruity Pavlova by the Queen of baking herself, Mary Berry!

You're a mean one, Mr Grinch


Every Christmas Eve, I get brand new pyjamas. It's tradition. However, when I saw these in Primark I really loved them and really wanted them so well, I got them!

The Grinch is one of my favourite ever films, not just at Christmas.

A [not so] christmassy outfit

Pimms and Needles| A festive event

A special post for day ten in the fact that this is where I write about my fab time at Pimms and Needles!
The December evening certainly lived up to my expectation last night and to make it even better, my friend Lauren came along too as a guest!
Ready with my mocktail and mag!
Filled with mocktails (cocktails minus the alcohol), mulled wine, makeup demostrations and Christmassy stalls, it certainly got us in the mood for the big day! (Can you believe it is only 15 days away, crazy?!)
So as I currently tuck into my chips and garlic sauce whilst writing this at 11pm on the 9th, here is '25 Days of Christmas| Day Ten'...
