Despite the pretty crazy weather we've had this week with snow in April then glorious sunshine in May (what's going on Mama Nature?), summer is definitely the horizon which means holiday time baby!
Christmas is the time for friends and family to get together and as the 'hostess with the mostess', I love nothing more than having everyone round my maison to celebrate the festive season.
We love entertaining here and it's been a month of partying this November from my birthday (which has been dragged out for pretty much most of the month-well you only turn 35 once right?!... to my cousin's epic 21st birthday party on Saturday night).
The last few weeks have seen my usually pretty healthy way of eating go to pot, with lots more sugar finding its way into my diet from celebratory cakes to afternoon teas and far too much champagne (with my recent 10th wedding anniversary, my brother's engagement and baby cousin's birth)- making me feel sluggish, tired and really not my best, physically and mentally. I've less energy than usual, haven't been sleeping well and my PMT is worse than ever.
