I recently got shellac nails for the first time and absolutely love how they turned out. My nails usually chip after two or three days but these are still going strong after 5 days.
I got them painted a gorgeous dark red colour, perfect for Christmas!
Have any of you had Shellac nails before?
I always look at the gourmet chocolate pizzas in Fenwicks food section and think they would be amazing stocking filler for a chocolate lover (or even someone difficult to buy for), but they seem really expensive for what they are. I decided I would try to make one at home and then I could decorate it any way I want to fit the occasion. The pizza turned out amazing and looked exactly like the ones in the shop, so I thought that I would share it with all of you.
All you need to do is find a round tin the size you want your pizza to be and fill it with any melted chocolate and toppings you like! I used dark and milk chocolate and chose marshmallows, malteasers, and grated chocolate and coconut to top it. I also drew in the lines showing the slices to make it look more like a Pizza.
It’s extremely simple to make the chocolate pizza suit any occasion or person and is a great aternative to a box of chocolates!
Why not give it a try?

I absolutely adore this time of year. Fairy lights and decorations are scattered everywhere and everyone seems to be a lot more cheerful. The few weeks leading up to Christmas always seem to last a long time, but once it’s here its over in a flash and you’re thrown back into reality with a few more pounds under your belt. It’s all worth it though for Christmas morning when everyone is sitting together opening their presents.
