Advent.

Tomorrow the fun really begins, I start the Christmas crafting in earnest, no more questioning whether it’s too soon or not. But really I’ve already dipped into the creative pool, my quick Autumnal Wreath eased me into the festive season and this week I finished the girl’s Advent Calendar. I can’t take full credit for this idea,…

What’s in a name?

It’s a funny old thing, choosing a title to be known as ‘online’, a kind of pseudonym, a mask, a pretence? It’s quite a commitment. When I step into my Alice in Scandiland shoes I become someone who may actually know a little about something, people seem to want to listen, to see what I…

Christmas tree decorations – My top pick.

I’m feeling that festive vibe slowly trickle into our home, my mind is filling with ideas, my Christmas Pinterest board is fit to burst and so I thought I’d share some inspiration with you.

However, I could spare the time to…

Lemony goodness loaf.

I made a rather yum Lemon Drizzle Loaf  for my mum’s birthday a few days ago and shared a quick snap on my Instagram stories. I had a fair few people message me for the recipe, so I thought I’d pop it here for everyone to enjoy. It’s super quick and easy to make but…
