Hedgehog Baking Weekend!!

For those of you who don’t know, one of the societies I’ve joined at university is called Hedgehog Friendly Campus, which is a volunteer group centred around supporting the UK’s favourite mammal – hedgehogs!! For the last two weeks, alongside the FairTrade Fortnight, there’s been a hedgehog themed bake off to try and raise awareness and money for the British Hedgehog Preservation Society. Of course, I had to take part in this – not just because I love hedgehogs, but also because who doesn’t love adorable animal themed baking? Plus I was dying for an excuse to escape my desk and mountains of work and it fit in just perfectly with my eco-friendly wildlife challenge so win-win (win?).

My favourite Hallmark Channel Valentine movies

one of my favourite things about Valentine’s day being around the corner is it’s an excuse to watch nothing but cheesy, absolutely corny romance movies. You get a similar excuse during Christmas time because it’s such a magical season, except then my movie line-up is usually filled with Christmas specific romcoms or adorkable love stories, so Valentine’s day allows me to catch up on all the non-Christmas ones. Soooo today I thought, with Valentine’s day being just over a week away, I’d share my favourite Hallmark Channel Valentine’s day romance movies! Whether you’re doing a Galentine’s day celebration, spending it with your partner or just curling up with a mountain of chocolate and your laptop, if you adore cheesy romance movies like me then these are some fun ones to watch in the lead-up to the big day!

Not every post will be a hit

Anyway … I was really unsure what to write about today. I’ve been having some difficulty coming up with topics that I want to write about this year (I don’t think the university workload is helping), so I decided to look back through all my old posts. I got to see the ones that did well and the ones that didn’t, and that got me thinking about the post I did last weekend, which didn’t get many views or likes. Sadly not every post will be a hit, and that can really hurt. But despite that, you can’t let that stop you from enjoying blogging!

Blogmas Day Twenty Four – My Christmas Traditions

Because Christmas is so close, I wanted to do a short post today about my usual Christmas celebrations and traditions. I haven’t done as many personal Christmas posts as I would have liked (I may have gotten carried away with all the other Christmas post inspirations I found) so before it’s too late, I wanted to at least fit in this one. I hope you enjoy it!!

Blogmas Day Twenty Two- The Best Holiday Beverages

One of my favourite parts about this time of year is all of the absolutely amazing food and drink that you can only truly appreciate during this time of year. Whether it’s a hot drink to warm you up on a cold winter’s night, something with a bit of caffeine to get you through your morning, or even something cold and fresh to stop you from melting in the summer heat, I absolutely love the fact that Christmas comes with its own range of beverages. So, I thought it might be fun to go through some of the best holiday beverages (be it hot, cold or whatever). Let’s see how many of them you enjoy drinking during the holiday season 🙂
