O come all ye faithful chocolate lovers

It’s hard to imagine Christmas without chocolate and this year I’ve been searching for the best in chocolate deals around. It’s an annual tradition in my family for us to play games and eat chocolate and other sweet treats after we’ve polished off our turkey dinner. However the price of chocolate has rocketed in recent years and the supermarkets aren’t able to offer competitive prices to their customers anymore.

Home comforts with candles

I love having friends and family to my flat at Christmas so I’m getting my home ready for them all arriving this year by buying some nice fragrant candles to place around my hallway, kitchen and living room. Candles are very homely and can create warmth while giving off an embracing scent. I love the musty cinnamon and orange festive candles that you can buy from my favourite homeware retailers, The White Company and Jo Malone. You can find festive inspired ranges which add a subtle scent but are big in character. Last night I visited both stores and splurged out on some stunning candles. I can’t wait to use them!  more “Home comforts with candles”
