The Luxe List – Valentine’s Day

Hello Lovers, Lusters & Loners.

Whichever category you fall into there is no reason to hate on the Valentine’s Day vibes. It gives us an excuse to wear hot pink, hearts and sob over chick flicks! I have ran with Valentine’s Day this year and compiled a Luxe List of Valentines goodies for all the lovers and loathers of this rather cringe worthy holiday. Let’s take a look at what I have listed!

Unconventional Inspiring Etsy Prints

Hello you fabulous bunch,

I hope your 2016 is in full swing now and your cracking on well with your resolutions. If not I may have a few things to help along the way. In the blogosphere we are continually bombarded with inspirational quotes using gorgeous typography. But do you ever get bored of the same quotes over & over? I know I do. As much as I love ‘She believed she could, so she did’ I thought I would gather a few alternative motivational prints from Etsy for those with a more RARRRR attitude to achieving their goals. I have collected all the prints shown below from very talented Etsy sellers, they are all printable so you can just download and print at home/work.

Tis the season to be jolly, right? Well although some of us are very happy spending time with loved ones, buying gifts and eating thing’s we shouldn’t we must remember that this is not the case for everyone. It is unfortunate that some people will be spending this christmas alone, broke and hungry. This post is not meant to put a downer on your festive celebrations, it is meant to remind us that this season we can make a difference!

If we could spare a thought or act of kindness for just one person this christmas can you imagine how much it would mean to them? I have come up with a small list of ideas of how we can give something back this year, some big some small. This post was inspired by hearing about the #1MillionHours campaign that Radio 1 and 1Xtra have launched. I am no preacher I have already taken part in Operation Christmas Child and have more planned from my list. I will continue to do more and I hope you all will too, hopefully my little list will do some good ❤

Irish Cream Delights

So it’s the time of year the cider and wine get’s put away at our house and the cream liqueurs come out! We do like a little evening tipple at home and there is always one thing we head for in December – Baileys (or cheaper Irish Cream). I love this stuff it’s like liquid gold after a long day, especially for my better half who works outside all day. Normally we just have a little splash (haha I’m lying) in a glass over ice. However I thought I’d do some research into other options after having a Baileys hot chocolate at Bury St Edmunds christmas fair. Well I have found so many nice recipes I thought I’d put them into a little blog post for you.
