My Goals for 2017

The Speculaas Spice Company

The Speculaas Spice Company

As it is now officially Christmas week, I thought I would start off with a lovely christmas post. While I was busy looking for ideas for christmas and my gift guide, I was contacted by a lovely man called Steven from the Speculaas Spice Company, asking if I would be interested in trying their spice mix.  As I always do a lot of baking at christmas, I had to say yes. Speculaas spice had become commonly available in the Netherlands in the 18th century, dutch bakers began to make their…

Smiggle Store – Kingston-upon-Thames

I was recently invited to visit Smiggle store in Kingston upon Thames, as this is a shop that we have visited before and often walk past looking in with all their bright colours, I could not refuse the offer. One Saturday in November when my Daughter was feeling up for a little trip out, we ventured into town with both her brothers to visit the store. We were welcomed in and Amal was assigned to help us in store, and she was amazing showing us all the various items on…

Love them of loathe them e-cigs are becoming more and more popular, some for the right reasons and some for the latest trend, and with it being such an expensive time of year and one where we are socialising a lot more than normal, trying to save those pennies or maybe look at our new years revolutions this is somewhere to start.
