Keep Calm It's Only Christmas Mug

Hey, Check This Out

Happy Sunday Today I’m helping my Grandparents decorate their Christmas tree, please join me in judging them for leaving it this late, it is truly unacceptable. I’ll also be making Nigella’s chestnut cheesecake and Jess and Josh’s leek carbonara for lunch and I reckon a roast is on the cards tonight. A very good Sunday on all counts, I’d say. Good things that happened this week.. My bed became an even happier place because I bought a Christmas dogs duvet cover. I can’t put into words how much joy it’s given me. George at ASDA is the place to be if you want to grab some of these (or one of their other festive sets) for £10!! I wore Christmas socks almost every day this week. I only ate my advent calendar chocolate early once. Just once. I think that makes me an adult. I got the family together to taste test mulled wine and mincemeat from a few different supermarkets, it was festive and fun. Results will be blogged this week. I’m struggling to think of anything else. …

Hey, Check This Out

Guys I’m sorry, for the first (and almost definitely not the last) time, my Sunday post is going out on a Monday. I just had too busy a weekend to get this out there. I’ve had such an awesome week though, and I cannot wait for you to read all about it. Remember to tell me allllllll about your week in the comments – I particularly want to hear how you’ve been getting festive! Good things that happened this week I went for my first Christmas dinner. It was at Wetherspoon’s. There were two different types of potato. Jess wrote about it here. I finally decorated my tree! It was a nightmare getting it down from the loft (we put it off by watching three Christmas films back to back on channel 5) but so worth it now that it’s up. I went to a Harry Potter quiz with Jess and Josh at The Globe yesterday, it was so. fun. I haven’t geeked out like that maybe ever. Me and my dog dressed up in …

Almond Milk Review: Rude Health vs Alpro vs Almond Breeze

A couple of weeks back, I asked you which dairy milk alternative you wanted to see reviews and comparisons for. The answer was a resounding “almond milk, please!”, so I spent the entire weekend drinking my body weight in milk to provide you with everything you need to know on the top three brands. You’re welcome. Each brand has been scored out of ten in three categories: In Coffee, Taste, and Consistency (consistency here meaning thickness in comparison to dairy milk). So without further ado.. Alpro  7/10 – After you pour it in, there’s a little bit of visible separation that’s slightly unappealing, but with a second stir it settles down and comes together again, so that’s not a big deal. It’s thick enough to still taste and look like a standard milky coffee (so it’s good for if you’re trying to trick someone in to swapping to almond milk, for whatever wily reason you may be doing that). Almond Breeze 5/10 – There’s no separation at all, but I think this is more down …
