  1. We’re hearing more and more reports of Christmas products in British high street stores whilst summer is still in full flow. What do you think? Is there no such thing as too early or are you a strictly-after-Halloween kinda person? (Although if you’re reading this we probably don’t need to ask hahaha!)
  2. Oh wow, these poitive pencils from Clara and Macy are divine. Perfect stocking stuffer for just about everyone .. or a back-to-school gift if you can’t wait that long!
  3. Hooray, Windsor Illuminated is back for 2022 & tickets on sale today … there’s going to be a 10m by 5m light installation of Winsor Castle set deep in the Great Park with holographic deer, 6 flood-lit water fountains and a 30m tunnel of light! We cannot wait!!!! Click here to read our review of last year’s trail.  

Our Review of Windsor Illuminated

Windsor Great Park is awash with festive colour!  But what’s the light trail really like and should you visit Windsor Illuminated? 

  1. Are these the cutest or what?! Imagine having your furry friend immortalised upon the tree each year with these stunning bespoke handpainted baubles from Winterhart’s Katie Simpson!!
  2. Awwww loving this story about Cambridgeshire postie Geoff Martin. Delivering post for over 20 years, each December Geoff sets aside his trademark shorts for a selection of festive outfits and jumpers in a bid to get the village smiling! What fabulous Christmas spirit!
  3. So Mariah wants to make her ‘Queen of Christmas’ title official… what do you think, should that be allowed?
  4. Hannah is in her element at the moment as she enjoys some holiday downtime building the LEGO Home Alone set with her equally-as-LEGO-mad son! Soooo many special features … we’ll have to share some when it’s complete!

  1. Hold onto your Brussels! Looks like the heatwave has taken its toll on the most controversial of the Christmas plate veggies. Haters may celebrate but for those of us who look forward to our Brussels we best take good care of those we find!
  2. Absolutely loving this hand embroidered cushion from Decoralist! What a beauty!
  3. Wow, have there really been 18 Only Fools & Horses Christmas Specials?! Wow! Which is your favourite? This new book from national treasure David Jason is going to be the perfect trip down memory lane for any OF&H fan!
