  1. Not so much Black Friday as Random Wednesday (& Tuesday!) as Amazon goes early on its festive discounting. Be sure to price match elsewhere but there are a few deals worth having in these early sales. Finishes end of Wednesday so don’t delay! (Only open to Prime customers)
  2. Four-legged friends can get in on the Christmas market fun now with A Doggy Day Out’s Doggy Christmas Markets in Cornwall and Devon! Complete with a Santa Paws Christmas Grotto, this has got to be the cutest if most unusual Christmas fayre yet!!
  3. Anyone else meal planning by Christmas movie yet? No? Just us?! You’re missing out … Check out our guide for what to eat with each seasonal classic film. Which one will you make first?

Recipes Inspired By Christmas Movies

What will you eat with your festive film favourite?

  1. Hurrah, the 2022 LEGO Winter Village set has been released and Hannah is VERY excited. How cute is this village square?!
  2. Speaking of LEGO … John Lewis, LEGO and Santa have teamed up this year with a trio of in-store festive experiences. Spaces are filling fast though so do get booking!
  3. Tesco are selling Christmas Pudding flavoured crisps. We’re all for having fun with flavours but these have got to mess with your mind! Anyone tried them yet?
  4. Lidl are launching a toy donation drive across all their stores from early November in partnership with Neighbourly to help spread Christmas cheer in local communities. Yey, that’s the festive spirit 🙂

  2. Utterly in love with this plate from Red Candy– our new favourite shop! It couldn’t be more gorgeous!
  3. Toy World announced the winner of the BlogOn Toy Awards this week and it’s a roar-some choice! Hannah tried out the Jurassic winner first-hand and can attest that it would make for a fabulous special gift under the tree.
