Landon Tyler Luxury Candles and Diffusers - Review

Okay lets talk about candles and diffusers - yes I know they aren't food or kitchen related but I do get quite excited about scented candles and I absolutely love diffusers!

Diffusers are perfect for small rooms; my downstairs loo and en-suite are never without one.  I love the clean, fresh scents and 'Winter Woods' from Landon Tyler is just that.

With Christmas just a few weeks away these would make the perfect girly gift if you're wondering what to get your Nan, mum, sister, aunt or me 😊

Landon Tyler is a brand of home fragrances - candles, diffusers and gifts.  They've been creating home scent products for some of the leading names on the high street for decades and now their products are available in branches of Clintons and selected gardens centers across the UK.

Guacamole with Red Pepper and Tomato Recipe

Now I've written about guacamole before; but that was over 4 years ago and my slightly titivated recipe has since become our favorite.   There really is no excuse for not making your own guacamole; it's so very easy to make and is nothing like the shop bought pureed green stuff you can buy in a supermarket.  What's more, avocado is packed with nutrients - so go on and give it a go!


I've added red pepper as well as tomato since I love the extra bright red the diced pepper adds.
With Christmas and New Year parties coming up impress your guests with your homemade guacamole - Tortilla chips at the ready and dive in!

Love this Solid Granite Pestle and Mortar - just saying!

Cocktail Recipes - The Perfect Mix

Christmas and New Year are the perfect excuse for a cheeky cocktail or two.  But of course a cocktail is good at any time of the year; in moderation of course.

Whether the refreshing flavours of a good Mojito is what you're after, or a colourful Sangria to remind you of summer, check out this innovative Cocktail Wheel.  It's so easy to use - to find the recipe of your choice just click on the name of the cocktail and the necessary ingredients plus correct measurements needed to create the perfect cocktail are revealed.

So now you're armed with the recipe, all you need now is some stylish cocktail glasses to show of your cocktail making skills.  I especially like these Margarita glasses from House of Fraser.

Margarita glasses are also perfect for making the most ordinary dessert look stylish.  Back in the summer I made a Cherry Ice Cream Sundae but for Christmas you could use these glasses to serve up small slices of Christmas pudding with Brandy Butter; just an idea but I may well have to give it a go!

Happy cocktail making - please drink responsibly.

Disclosure:  I received a set of cocktail glasses from House of Fraser.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.  I was not required to write anything positive.
