Have a very Merry Christmas

Posted On: Wednesday, December 24, 2014


Christmas is nearly here and I’d like to wish all my lovely readers and fellow bloggers a very Merry Christmas and thank you for all your support this year, I couldn’t have asked for more.

I’m taking a break from blogging over Christmas, spending time with family and friends (I’m sure I’ll sneak a few hours blogging in somewhere, I can’t resist!) and I’ll be back in the new year with some exciting new posts for you all.

Merry Christmas, Danni x

Indulge at Christmas

Posted On: Monday, December 22, 2014


Christmas is a time to indulge in a few little luxuries, and these (not so) guilty pleasures are always accompanied with mesmerising packaging. This is what excites me most about Christmas – hey, that’s the designer in me!

Over the past few weeks I’ve secretly been scouring the shops, whilst Christmas shopping, to find some beautiful designs to share with you. Here are a few of my favourites…

1. Stem Ginger & Dark chocolate Biscuits from Selfridges  2. Rozsavolgyi Milk Chocolate with Himalaya Salt from Selfridges  3. Curry & Chips Milk Chocolate Bar from Mighty Fine Chocolate 4. Wellness Blend Tea from Kusmi Tea  5. KAH Day of the Dead Tequila from Harvey Nichols  6. Prestat London Gin Truffles from Waitrose  7. French, Himalayan, New Zealand Salt Collection from Salt House  8. D1 London Gin from Harvey Nichols

Christmas Windows Header

Christmas is a creative time of year, and there’s nothing more wonderful than looking at the all the Christmas windows that have been created, they are truly spectacular. I decided to capture some of the windows as they were too good to miss, and as you can see there are a great mix of designs ranging from the traditional to the …not so traditional, and of course I had to capture the quirky windows to share with you!

All but one of these photos were taken in Leeds, I did want to broaden my range to London, but as you know at Christmas, time flies and I didn’t make it. It’s already on my to do list for next year!
