Last week our brother Phil was tragically taken from us in a car accident.

With this and then Em’s baby arriving very soon we’re unsure when we’ll be back to blogging.

Please bare with us, as we go through this difficult time.

Thanks, Sarah and Emily xxx

Refreshing Old Greenery: Em’s Gold and White Christmas Tree

Wednesday, November 18th, 2015

White has never been more popular, which is something we’re thrilled about!

Last year I liked my Christmas decor (HERE), but wished for a flocked or white tree. Before putting the tree up this year we decided to do a little DIY to ‘dust’ my tree and garlands.

I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out!

We achieved this look by setting up the tree in the back yard and spray painting it white. We didn’t go too heavy, I wanted some of the green to show through. This literally took 10 minutes, and we left it to dry for a few hours before taking it back in the house.

We used Rust-oleum Painters’ Touch 2x ultracover spray paint in semi-gloss white. This is availalble at Jones Paint and Glass who recommended it as it specifically adheres to plastic. We used 1.5 cans for a 7ft tree.

So much brighter and more updated than the bland old tree!

A big thank you to Jones Paint and Glass for sponsoring the post. I’m so happy with my updated tree!

Martha’s Parsnip Soup

Friday, November 6th, 2015

We are on a soup kick again! Healthy, warm and delicious and such an easy meal.
Is anyone else freezing?! Brrr, it’s cold out there!

We’re such a fan of our mummy’s roasted parsnips this time of year, we had to give THIS recipe a try!

We followed the instructions except we used a red instead of yukon potato and used whole milk instead of cream. Still delicious and a few less calories (not that we’re counting).

Keep warm this weekend!
