    Pinterest Christmas DIYs

    Blogmas Day 13 | Essential Twenty

    I’m rubbish at arty projects. I’m a scientist through and through and this blog is the most creative I get. This doesn’t stop me scrolling through Pinterest for festive DIYs I’ll never complete though! But if you are a little more artistic than I am then maybe this list will give you some last minute Pinterest Christmas DIYs to complete over the next couple of weeks.

    My 2017 Christmas Jumper Wish List

    Blogmas Day 12: My Christmas Jumper Wish List | Essential Twenty

    I bloody love Christmas jumpers. In fact, Christmas clothes of any sort I’m all eyes and ears for. Any other holiday you can forget it, but give me a tacky jumper during December and I’m one happy lady. In fact, give it another year or two and I’ll probably own enough festive jumpers and t-shirts to allow me to wear a different one all month! I just love treating myself to a Christmas jumper or two every year.

    A Christmas Puzzle Haul

    Christmas Puzzle Haul | Essential Twenty
    I’m a jigsaw puzzle addict at the moment. There was a 4 day period in November where I completed three 500 piece puzzles and finished off a 1000 piece one.

    My Christmas Cookbook Collection

    Nothing screams Christmas to me like cooking. Whether that’s baking sausage rolls (my mum makes the best ones and I’ll fight you if you disagree), icing some festive shaped biscuits or whipping up the roast dinner of dreams, that’s Christmas to me. You probably only need one Christmas cookbook in your collection to help you with the big day, but I have a number in my stash!

    Christmas Festivals: Eat & Drink + Ideal Home

    Blogmas Day 6: Christmas Festivals | Essential Twenty

    A few weeks ago, DenTek invited me alone to the Eat & Drink Festival at Olympia and I’m all about filling my face with all the food and drink at Christmas. This also included entry into the Ideal Home Christmas Show, and whilst this was going to be two posts worth of content, I’ve decided to put it into one bumper post for you. My London Olympia Christmas Festivals guide.

    The Ultimate Blogger Gift Guide

    Blogmas Day 5: Blogger Gift Guide | Essential Twenty

    Today’s post brings the second of my two gift guides, with this one being aimed purely at bloggers. Yes, a blogger gift guide! My family are always asking what I want, and I’m sure if you’re anything like me, you’ll have a list as long as your arm of things you’d love. You’ve either seen them on other blogs, or heard things about them from other bloggers, or you simply want something to help up your blogging game.
