Things I’m loving Thursday!

One of the major things that I’m loving right now is the fact there is only 3 days left till Christmas…wohooo! 

Not only am I loving that but I also love love lurrrrrrrrrrrrrrve Christmas baking!  I’ve just made a huge batch of my Guilt-Free Ginger Bread Cookies and now my house smells of eu de Gingerbread…yum!

And talking of gingerbread I’m also loving this Gingerbread Spiced tea that I picked up in the States- super festive and tastes amazing!  I cannot get enough of those gingerbread spices at Christmas time.

Now these innocent looking things look innocent, but don’t be fooled like I was…

…dark chocolate edamame beans are totally addictive and should come with a warning label.  However, having said that they do taste pretty amazing!

My veg box arrived this morning and it is full of seasonal vegetables to use over the Christmas period.

Sweet and Salty Sprouts here we come!

I decided to raid my stash of snack bars the other day and found this coconut cream pie Larabar…

I was in heaven!   It was just like a Bounty chocolate bar and they didn’t skimp on the coconut either-it was bursting with it!

And of course mince pie filling oats during the festive season always hit the spot!

Will all this talk of food this is going to look slightly random in this post, but I’m also loving my Uggs!

Wearing these is like wearing my slippers all day and they keep my feet super warm.  I wore them to work last weekend and was so comfy and cosy! 😀

What things are you loving at the moment?

Do you enjoy baking at Christmas or do you think that it’s just a hassle?
