I though it would be nice to make a post with 10 items I loved this year from the goodie bags. While I’m delighted with many other items, I had to pick only a few, and that was difficult. The items are not ordered in any particular way. They vary from beauty products to mugs, […]

My November

November is my favourite month, because it’s my birthday. This year we went to a day trip in a lovely English village, and we had a light lunch at The Bull Pub. As for the cake, it was the one made for the last 100 years for Royal birthdays, Tschumi’s Chocolate Cake; that was so […]

Make Your Own Advent Calendar

Last year I had an advent calendar for the first time. It was a fun thing we got with a different type of tea each day. So, this year, I’ve decided I wanted to make my advent calendar. As I loved the idea and how it turned out, I thought it’s best to share how […]
