TGI-Friday!!! I have been counting down the days all week for today to finally come… we are off to Center Parcs probably as you read this! It’s our very first time going but we have heard nothing but amazing things from others that have gone with small kids. We have our carriage ride to Santa and Santa’s Wonderland all booked. I think I am more excited than the kids to see good old Saint Nick!
With that in mind let’s join the lovely Butwhymummywhy and her beautiful #littleloves crew in reflecting back on the little things I loved this week.
With being sick on top of everything else these past few weeks, I finally sat down in between packing and a trip to A&E for x-rays (long story) and enjoyed my new Mollie Makes magazine, a Coffee Nut Latte and Almond Croissant. I couldn’t of had a better 30 minutes to myself.
In between my vlogging, blogging and daily life duties I have been trying to read a book a week. It’s been more like a book every other week but this week my nose has been stuck in “The Good Girl” a book I received in my goody bag from #BlogFest. What a treasure its been thus far…
I have never heard of her before but I came across this song on youtube and I love the message it sends. It’s corky and different than the usual music I listen to but I quite like it.
I have been watching a lot of YouTube videos, mostly my own to learn from my mistakes and get better at talking to the camera and recording myself. Zoella has a lot to learn from of course so I am breaking through her videos and a lot of other big vloggers to get a better grasp. I have so much to learn. Here is my most recent vlog sharing my Pastel Christmas Haul!
Since we are off to Center Parcs I have pulled out my winter wonders that I bought a few years ago for our winter American trip. I love my Christmas Hollister hat, gloves and matching scarf! I am all about the crochet in the winter time!
This week I brought out my inner child and my love for Lucky Charms with my Lucky Charms Cake Recipe. My two favorite treats in the world, why not put them together? The marshmallow inner layer tastes absolutely delicious with the vanilla cake and frosting.
It’s 33 days until Christmas! My favorite holiday of the whole year (not just because my birthday is 4 hours after either!). I am going all out this year for the holidays as it really is the first year my kids are old enough to participate and us not going away for it like we did last year.
So I have been scoping out Christmas decorations as I plan my Pastel Christmas tree for our new front room. Have a sneak peak at my Pastel Christmas wishlist here and stay tuned for my home tour of all my Christmas decor! There will be two themed trees this year and lots and lots of baubles and tinsel!! I can’t wait!

Oh I love the Christmas Mollie Makes – I’m saving mine until I’ve got a chance to have a long soak in the bath and read it cover to cover and then Christmas in on!!!
