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). I love what we have picked as her christmas presents this year and I wanted to share them…

Christmas Traditions

Living abroad and having a lot of expat friends from all over the world, it fascinates me to hear about everyone’s Christmas traditions.

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…

A Look Back at 2015

So now we are a month into 2016 and I have almost started to write a 6 instead of a 5 when dating things, I thought it was about time that I looked back on 2015. For personal reasons 2015 was the worst year of my life but I would like to focus on the…

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…
