I had the most amazing opportunity given to me by Currys/PC World, to learn how to bake some yummy recipes at the Glasgow Cookery School. I came home with some cupcakes, muffins and some scones not to mention a Kenwood hand K Mixer.
I spent most of my sunday learning about key ingredients along with utensils and tips for successfully completing the recipes. It was a lot of fun and very useful. The Glasgow Cookery School offer a wide variety of cooking classes from cakes to hot indian style dishes and cocktail classes to kids classes.
I'm a novice baker so the tips and tricks came in very handy and I will definitely be trying the recipes at home with a little help from my Kenwood mixer.
Christmas is fast approaching and the temperature has plummeted! That can only mean one thing, it's time to dig out your cosy christmas jumpers and stock up on some new ones.
The festive season is my favourite time of the year and I can't wait to dive into some hot chocolate, roasted chestnuts, cheesy Christmas tunes, mulled wine and my favourite Christmas movies. There is no better way to get involved than to put on some warm fleecy house socks and a good ol' Christmas jumper.
Gillian and I got our Christmas jumpers from Matalan and we love them. They're so cosy and warm and we love the designs. It was a hard choice just picking one each from such a huge range :) You can see Matalan's full Christmas shop here.
What is your favourite part of the festive season? Do you have your Christmas jumper yet?

My wishlist is beyond large but the above items are my favourites - my purse is currently hiding in order to save me from myself!!
Shirt: H&M | Skirt: H&M | Bag: LYDC | Shoes: Dolce Vita (old) but similar here
I wanted to try an alternative look on the ever popular chambray shirt. I wanted to take a casual shirt and try and style it with something slightly more glam than the usual skinny jeans and high heels (an upcoming post). I came up with the above. What do you guys think? I found the textured skirt at H&M and immediately fell in love with it ... I can't wait to style it with some other items for more glam looks :)
