As 2014 draws to a close today I wanted to look back at some of my favourite blog posts from this year. I know that it has been rather quiet on the blog for the past few months but the end of this year just seemed to slip past in a blink. I don't think any year has ever worked out the way I had planned but every year does bring it's own memories, this years highlights for me were travelling to Crete in the summer and then to Prague just a few weeks ago along with meeting up with my blogger friends Holly & Pam whilst they were travelling in London. It's so surreal finally meeting these ladies who I have known for what seems like forever. I also got to work with some fabulous brands on the blog like Kohl's & Elizabeth & Clarke and helped to promote my friend Roxy's Macarons & Peonies Etsy Shop. Peony Week produced some of my favourite posts for this year and I also celebrated my 1000th Blog Post. I got to write a feature for Best Friends for Frosting this summer too which was so much fun! I put my new sewing skills to good use making a whole bunch of Christmas Stockings for friends and family. I can't wait to see what 2015 has in store. Happy New Year's Eve!

My mum has always made the most fabulous Christmas cakes for as long as I can remember but this year I wanted to have a go at making the cake (with a little bit of help of course) for our family Christmas and learn my mum's recipe. If you haven't seen Disney's Frozen (where have you been?!) then you won't recognise this cute guy who loves warm hugs. Olaf seemed the perfect snowman to top my frozen snowflake design. I am so happy with how my cake turned out, I didn't want anyone to cut it on Christmas Day.

Happy Christmas Eve!! I can't believe it is here already. All of my gifts have been delivered, the stockings are hung by the fireplace and when I finish work tonight I cannot wait to spend the next few days with the people I love the most. Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas!!

I have always had a love for Christmas Markets, they are the perfect way to get into the festive spirit. Prague has been on my must visit list for as long as I can remember and so when I had a chance to escape for a weekend at the end of November, there was no debating of where I would be headed to. I fell in love with Prague from the minute I arrived and saw all the beautiful buildings. The main Christmas Market in Prague is in the Old Town Square, the perfect backdrop for the beautiful Christmas tree and all the market stalls. I wandered around the markets enjoying a Trdelnik on a few occasions over the weekend and came home with some beautiful new decorations for my Christmas tree. I snapped hundreds of photos and can't wait to share some more from my trip with you all soon.
