Christmas went by way too quickly for my liking.

It feels like the build up goes slowly but as soon as Christmas Eve arrives, it's over in a snap. Another 10 months until I can reason it being time to feel festive again. 

Our kitchen was fitted in time for Christmas and we finally had more room to serve everyone. Which was a pretty big success. Pinterest has been a lifesaver for storage solution ideas. But a trip to Ikea seems to be in order as there's only so much you can scrounge up and re-purpose.

I'm definitely not complaining though, any chance to visit that dreamy place, I'll take it.

With our kitchen still out of action and building works set to continue for another few days, I'm really starting to miss my oven. And the sink, I think I may even miss that a bit more. It has been a total of 6 weeks and no oven has meant stealing my sisters for a few hours or sticking to no bake treats.

Which isn't all bad to be honest, especially when there's no bake cheesecake involved.

Mykonos Travel Guide

You’ll probably have heard about Mykonos, the party town with the relaxed vibe. You’ll have seen it on Pinterest, with its picturesque cobbled streets, white sugar cube homes with colourful doors and the crystal blue sea. You’ll have heard about it from many of the big bloggers who have frequented the island. 

And I’m here to say it’s every bit as perfect as you’d think it would be.

I'm officially in the Christmas spirit! Now that Halloween has been and gone and Bonfire Night has been celebrated with fireworks, it's acceptable, right? 

So when Wren Kitchens got in touch and asked me to whip up a Christmas recipe with a twist, it was just the boost I needed to get started with some festive baking. Every year I end up planning all of these recipes I want to make over Christmas, some a bit more adventurous than others, some just involve sausage rolls.

But this year, I'm plan to keep on challenging myself with my bakes, like I did with the Bake Off Bake Along, starting with cake pops!

Lemon Surprise Fondant Fancies | Bake Off Bake Along
It seems my Bake Off favourites are just dropping like flies. First Benjamina, then Selasi, I just hope Andrew isn’t next! So sad to see the uber chilled Selasi go home this week. He was such a refreshing change from the regular stressed out bakers.

I’ll never understand how he managed to stay just so chilled during most of the tasks. I would be a wreck and probably run out of time. Or drop something.

Baking along with Bake Off has been a bit challenging at times, but this week tested me. Give me a big cake to frost and I can do it, but give me a tiny fondant fancy to frost and everything falls apart.
