Destination2 travel bucket list

Though the title says, as much as I would love to travel around the world in 2018, it most definitely is not going to happen. In fact, we haven’t even travelled out of the UK for almost ten years. So the boys have never been abroad, but I would love to broaden their travel horizons and give them some amazing experiences. Even myself, I’ve only been as far as the Canary Islands, and that’s when I was a teenager. So yeah, quite a while ago…

The lovely people over at Destination2 have asked me to put together a travel bucket list for 2018; though this is likely to blend into many many years. As much as I love taking the boys on holiday, when they’re all grown up and left home, we will be back to grown up trips away – the relaxing type 😉 It wasn’t hard for me to come up with a bucket list, as I am constantly adding to places I would love to visit, in my head!

Festivity with Prestige Flowers | Review

Prestige Flowers review

One of my favourite sights in my house is a bunch of flowers on display. I think it’s such a welcoming sight for guests, and you can’t beat the smell of a fresh bunch. I don’t get bought flowers very often (hint, hint, Husband), so I usually buy them myself. Alternatively, I make my own display with cuttings from the wildflowers in the garden.

My usual floral display around Christmas time is a poinsettia plant. I just love the colourful reds and golds of the festive season. A few weeks ago though, the lovely people at Prestige Flowers sent me a bunch of their Christmas “Festivity” arrangement.

The Festivity bouquet is one of our favourite Christmas arrangements at Prestige Flowers. With Rudolph red roses, gentle gerberas and cinnamon sticks; Festivity is the perfect gift to send this Christmas. Festivity embraces true Christmas tradition with red festive blooms and green aspidistra.

This arrangement comes with a FREE box of fine handemade British chocolates!

November Degustabox | Subscription Box Review

November Degustabox review

I say it every month, but I was really looking forward to receiving the November Degustabox, as the closer it gets to Christmas, the more likely to be some lovely Christmassy treats in there! There was a good mix of sweet and savoury in this one, with quite a few brands that were new to me.

  • Enjoy 10 to 15 surprise products, many are completely new to the market!
  • Receive your Degustabox every month filled with goodies.
  • All for much less than you would pay in the shops!

So what was inside the November Degustabox?

Food subscription gift guide

Whether you’re searching for Christmas gifts for someone hard to buy for, you’re a last minute gift buyer, or you’re looking for a gift that lasts longer than the Christmas festivities; a food subscription gift may be the choice for you. I’m a bit of a subscription box lover – especially food related ones! – and there are so many more I would love to try. But, you know, pennies.

Anyone who bought me a food subscription as a gift though, I would love forever. Doesn’t everyone love food that they haven’t had to buy themselves? 😉 I’ve put together a guide for you, so hopefully you will find something that your intended recipient will be thankful for! Read more
