Tabithas Christmas Wardrobe

As you all know I am pretty much obsessed with baby clothes for Tabitha, it’s actually almost a sickness at this point. Christmas was no different and she had 3 (yes 3, oops) outfits specifically for Christmas, I might be bias as I picked them but I am sure they were super cute, so now…

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone. We are celebrating with our friends and family in Bournemouth this year. Even though I am away from home I wanted to send some festive wishes to all of my readers. I hope you have a wonderful day filled with love, laughter and too much food. Chantelle and family x

Want, Need, Wear, Read

I once read that the best way to buy presents for babies/toddlers is on a want/need/wear/read basis. I really liked this idea and we have followed this principle for tabitha so far (last Christmas and her birthday).

Berlin Christmas Markets 2017

St Nikolaus Day

This is a day that we have started celebrating on a small scale as we have now been in Germany for almost 7 years and it only feels right to take on some native traditions, especially ones that involve chocolate! St Nikolaus Day is celebrated throughout Europe…

Christmas in Berlin

We love spending our Christmas in Berlin and creating our won traditions as a family so this post is mostly for our families back in the UK that I know pop in from time to time to see what we are getting up too. We had a brilliant Christmas period with our friends and I…

Christmas Tree Pavlova with Pistachios and Chocolate Baubles

I saw a form of this on a Christmas baking programme and just thought the idea looked great especially as I love making meringue since being taught by my Mother-In-Law (the queen of pavlova) but maybe it was a chance to make my own unique version. So here it is, my attempt at a┬áChristmas Tree…

Happy New Year – Chocolate Tiffin Bar

So it is now 2016 and there is probably no Chocolate Tiffin Bar left from Christmas but I still wanted to share this recipe, firstly because it is one of my favourites and secondly because something about it screams Christmas to me (probably that it has like a million calories and we all know those…
