Pizza Express Christmas Menu Review

The Christmas season is upon us and everywhere you look there are wonderful things to see. I love everything about the Christmas, the decorations, the presents, family time and most importantly I love Christmas food at home and in restaurants. Recently I was invited to the Pizza Express in Exeter to try the Christmas menu, I love pizza and I was very curious to see how you could have a Pizza based Christmas menu.  I took a friend along so we could get in the festive spirit together, munch our way through yummy food and have a good natter. Pizza Express have a great varied menu and their Christmas menu looked very exciting and I was looking forward to trying it For starter i chose Manzo Crocchette which contains pulled beef and chianti crocchette served with rocket and a horseradish and crème fraiche dipping sauce. When it turned up it looked great and it… View Post

Pick ‘n’ Melt Christmas Gift Set – Review

I absolutely love candles and I am always on the look out for a nice scent to fill the room, before I tried the Pick n Melt Christmas gift set I had been burning a jelly belly blueberry candle. I had never used wax melts before so this in itself was a new experience. Pick n Melt sent me a wonderful parcel which included a lovely wax burner and a bag that almost looks like a pick n mix sweet bag, of lovely wax melts. I could smell them before I even opened the bag. I was surprised how many melts they had sent me, at the same time I thought they looked small and how long would the scent last for, like I said I am normally used to candles that burn for a long time with a long lasting scent. The scents ranged from Christmas Spice to snow, each and… View Post

Caketoppers cupcakes review

Today is one of those days when comfort food like cakes makes things better. I absolutely love a piece of cake, whether it be chocolate, fruit, carrot, sponge or fudge cake, the list really does go on. The other day I received two very lovely personalised cupcakes from a company called Caketoppers. They are a company that specialise in cake, cupcakes and printed icing edible topper’s. The website has topper options that would suit any occasion and being able to add a personalised photo makes the cakes a little bit extra special. I was really impressed when the cupcakes arrived as they were packaged so well, tucked away in a little box surrounded by bubble wrap.  This is great, I sometimes find it can be a bit of a worry sending edible gifts in the post as you never know if they are going to get there safely. The cakes… View Post

At 4PM, 11PM, 2AM GMT on weekdays and 11PM at the weekend, you can watch the reindeer getting fed. If this doesn’t make you feel all warm, fuzzy and Christmassy, then I don’t know what will. Click here to head over to Reindeer Cam and watch Santa’s Reindeer The kids will just LOVE this, but a tip. It’s only FREE to watch on their website, and costs around £1.49 from mobiles/tablets via an app. The times aren’t very child friendly but since it’s in America, this can’t really be helped, so just catch those lovely magical reindeer being fed at 4pm.
