What is it about winter train rides that feels so magical? (We're thinking a snowy Orient Express/Polar Express situation more than the 7.50am South Eastern to Charing Cross).  Well H&M's Christmas short film has magical winter train ride written all over it and with a...

So in the lead up to the big day I have seven parties to go to. SEVEN. Now for me....that's LOADS, way too many, I'm already scared of the hangovers.  They're a mix of dinners, drinks and out out parties.  And one thing I always like to bring out for Christmas parties...

I have a real weakness for Christmas stockings.  I somehow end up buying new ones every year, I literally have every kind you can think of, it's a problem.   This year I of course got caught up in having monogrammed stockings (I have ones with our names but not our ini...

So Copper had a bit of a big interiors year this year, even my local Sainsbury's went crazy for copper homeware.  Everything from frames and candle holders to pots and pans, well Christmas didn't want to miss out as I've seen copper Christmas decs everywhere! Here are...

Yes the wait is over! The Christmas ads are here! Yippee!  

Not On The High Street - Magic is Real

As someone who in my day job is one of the 5000 partners (or elves in this case) of Not On The High Street, I love this ad on so many levels which is why they are my 2016 f...

I love Advent Calendars (surprise, surprise!). I have a wooden house calendar that I paid way too much for, a felt tree, a stocking bunting calendar and not to mention I like a new picture one each year.  If I see a new one, I need to add it to my collection! And this...

And it's here!  I don't really remember Christmas adverts being a thing when I was younger, apart from the Coca Cola, Holidays Are Coming and the Yellow Pages one no others come to mind. In 2011 that all changed when John Lewis made Christmas adverts a thing when they...

Ok, so it's not officially John Lewis day but because their highly anticipated Christmas commercial airs today we thought we would make it John Lewis Day. And why not?  A few of the Christmas ads have aired...none have grabbed me yet so it's all resting on John Leiws,...
