I mentioned recently that I was taking part in a bloggers' secret Santa, and today I'm sharing what I got sent, and who sent it to me, in a little video!

A Very Merry Christmas!
Cocktails are great, aren't they? I love that sometimes they taste like they have no alcohol in at all.. and they can mix unusual flavours into something crazy delicious! Aldi sent over a whole bunch of spirits and challenged me to make some Christmas cocktails... and here's what I made!

Remember Black Friday last year? It was terrifying. I don't think I left the house that day for fear of getting trapped in some kind of sales-frenzy-stampede. I've even seen a few stores announce that they won't be taking part in BF sales this year, instead spreading the discounts out to avoid the chaos!
I did, however, buy a few things online, and I most likely will this year too! Any excuse to create a wishlist - things for myself and for those I love. Here's the kind of stuff I'm hoping to pick up in the John Lewis Black Friday sales next Friday (27th)... fingers crossed.

I am no stranger to mental health issues, and I think it's important to talk about it whenever appropriate - you've probably seen me mention it on here multiple times! One thing many of us do to ease depression and anxiety is practise self care. I have a whole blog post on that coming soon, but today I'm going to focus on the self care subscription box.
There are a few similar subscriptions boxes out there aimed at self care, but I was sent this new albobox to see what the deal was.

If you live in Bristol, you've probably heard of The Thali Cafe - authentic Indian food which started on the festival scene & then they opened up a restaurant in Montpelier, followed by Clifton, Easton, Totterdown and (my local) Southville.
They've recently got a new Indian grill which is actually on the restaurant floor (you can just about see it in the left of the photo below) which I love, because it means you get to watch your food being cooked!
I was invited down to try the menu on a quiet Sunday evening, and it did not disappoint..

Gift giving season is lovely, isn't it? But it's not just about wrapping presents to put under the tree for your loved ones - at least not for me, not this year! Here are a few of my favourite alternative ways that you can give gifts.
