While it isn’t traditionally wedding season any longer, there are the brave few who still have a winter wedding. In my opinion it is so romantic! Snow, Christmas lights and trees, it just all feels so cozy and beautiful to me. And the more white the better!
i take you
It is party season and whether you are throwing a party or attending one, it might be fun to offer some festive holiday cheer. These cocktails look so fun and yummy, I want one now!

Just in time for holiday shopping, these are a few of my favorite things. Yes, this year has much less Kate Spade and a lot more practical items, but hey, things change. And seriously, do I need to suggest Kate Spade, it is just a given! I wish I could be like Oprah and give them all to you, shoot, I wish I could give them all to me!
Heluvua Good Greek Yogurt Dip (in French Onion)
Ok, so you are thinking this is an odd one to start off with and true, however, this is the best discovery I have made recently and I want everyone to know about it! It tastes just like chip dip and is only 40 calories! I cannot get enough! Maybe not the best gift, but great for your holiday parties or just to have around for the holidays.
Hand Held Shower Head
There is pretty much nothing I love more these days than a steaming hot shower! Having a good shower head is key to a good shower.
Yes, you can tell it is winter and I am a cold person because right behind my hot shower I could not live without my fireplace! Have a remote control gas fireplace is awesome because I have a fire 15 times a day and I never have to clean up or build a fire. I simply turn it on when I want it and turn it off when I don’t (which is only when I’m leaving the house)!
This thing is like my best friend. Yes, I know, another cold weather item, but it is just so cozy and warm and fuzzy and almost all need. Give me my sherpa blanket, my fire, a cup of tea and a book and I’m just about as happy as I can get.
Life changing as a parent!
Asos Maternity Clothes
OMG, finally cute, affordable maternity clothes. I honestly thought this did not exist!
Whether you have a holiday party or not, most people can get in the spirit to bring a little holiday cheer to their home this time of year. DIY, store bought, or all made by your children, you can’t mess up making your home happy for the holidays (ok, except maybe with all blue lights! bah humbug!).

be a fun mum
It is about that time for all of us to start attending and or throwing numbers holiday parties. So fun! But what to serve or bring? I’m certain there are those who would disagree, but I think the cuter the better. Ok, it may not be elegant, but it is the holidays. Offer up a little cheer with your food. Why not?!

Catch My Party
Apple Cider Margarita – Yes Please!
While I always have great intentions and would love to be all Martha Stewart about my Thanksgiving table, it is just a miracle I get dinner cooked anything else is just not going to happen. However, there are people like my sister who prioritize the table and makes sure she has a beautiful DIY centerpiece and decor. I want to be like her, but I know many of you are! If I were like my sister I would wish my table looked like any of these!
I love fruit as centerpieces!

I am loving candy canes in any way shape or form right now. Candy stripes on linen, candy canes to eat, drink, as decor, as a topping. I’ll take my candy canes any way I can get them.

I think buying for my husband is the hardest thing. He is so particular and men’s gadgets are so much more expensive than women’s. I can’t pick him up a pretty little scarf and have him be thrilled. Here are my best ideas for the men in your life. Got any ideas of your own to add?
Not’s Your Dad’s Tie – I know a tie is so generic but this Fair Isle knit tie is so not the generic dad tie! Any dad (or not dad) would look hot in this.

Keep Cozy – Ben Sherman Plectrum Flat Cap

- I LOVE tights. Tights might be my favorite thing. Ok well, probably not but I do love tights. A note on tights. You are never too old for tights! You are always too young for panty hose. Throw away your panty hose, get some cute tights. I’ll get off my soap box now.
