Winter's Frost & Reflecting on 2016

Every morning this week, outside my bedroom window I've looked out to find a beautiful frost glistening in the sunlight beneath the fog. The morning of my day off I decided to get dressed quickly out of my pyjamas, put on a Winter coat, grab my camera and went outside in the garden to take a few photos before the sun would melt away the frost. It was all I wanted to do, to take a few photos of the frost to capture Winter. It really is starting to feel more like Winter each day, I'm just hoping for some snow in the new year!

A Merry Christmas To You

I hope everyone is having a fantastic Christmas Eve! I didn't get the chance to post as many Christmassy blog posts this December, I had so many ideas and big plans to write and shoot for some more blog posts but unfortunately too much stuff got in the way. I've been so busy with work and everything else that I didn't get as much free time as I had hoped for. I feel a little worn out so I'm glad I get a long weekend just to chill and clear my mind of any stress.

But here's a little post I just wanted to write before Christmas just to wish all fellow bloggers and readers a big Merry Christmas. I'm spending Christmas at home baking plenty of treats for the family as well as having a relaxed and quiet Christmas with plenty of food and snuggled up watching all the films on tv!

I so can't wait till the new year, I have so many plans and so much to tick off of my new year to-do list. I also have plenty of blog posts planned for the start of January, so I can't wait to get started with shooting, editing and writing up those posts! And on that note I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

DIY Christmas Wrapping Paper

Something I've always wanted to do at Christmas is to create my own wrapping paper. I love the wrapping paper that you can find in many shops, what with all the glitter, Christmassy prints and glossy paper. But after seeing lots of creative ideas over at Pinterest I really wanted to have a go at creating my own Christmas wrapping paper!

An Enthusiasm For Baking - Gingerbread Men

Of course my favourite way to spend my cold Winter mornings is to bake! On my days off of work I have been enjoying doing lots of baking, and making some gingerbread men was number one on my festive baking list! Christmas isn't just the same without some gingerbread men and rather than buying from the shop I love making my own. I love everything about spiced biscuits, the smell of the spices mixed together in the bowl and watching the biscuits turn a warm golden colour in the oven.

Things To Do This Winter

A big warm welcome to December! I still can't decide whether this year has gone by quick or slow, but it's certainly been an up and down year for me. I'm really looking forward to Winter though and now that things are starting to get better I really want to stay focused and move on from everything that went wrong this year. Whether you like spending your Winter days indoors with a hot chocolate or you like an action packed Winter, here is my list of things to see and do this Winter!
