Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays
I’m typing this blog post as its just after midnight on Christmas morning. This year we are spending 4 days with family in Birmingham, and just having god old family fun! We took a trip to the German Christmas Markets for our final mommy and me day of the year. Mckenna has been asking me for months to go back to the Cereal Killer Cafe in Birmingham so I finally said yes, and let her get her fix of American Cereal. She has been obsessing over Princess fairy costumes for months, and luckily I found this amazing fairy costume set from Monsoon in the sale for 50% off MOMMY FOR THE WIN!
Mckenna had a bowl of princess themed Lucky Charms with extra Marshmallows, while I went for a regular bowl of lucky charms, with a Strawberry and white hot chocolate, (ready to give me a heart attack). I think this is literally the only time we can get away with saying “Ah well it’s christmas “ when we indulge in Christmas
We took advantage of the only activity for kids which was the fares wheel. Not only did it spin into oblivion, I struggled to take one single picture! I don’t understand how it was considered a kids ride when they might as well have been on a rollercoaster . Yes this is my attempt at taking a photo ( pretending its still in motion) after the ride had finished!

What I got from the Frankfurt Christmas Markets
Honestly I had no intention of buying anything, but as I couldn’t resist the 50% off Kiko Milano sale sign in the shop window! Technically I didn’t get the Kiko items in the market, more like market adjacent! Close enough amiright? I did however actually pick up french vanilla coffee grounds from the market to feed my never ending addiction!
2018 will be no different when coffee is concerned!
oh almost forgot, I received an early Christmas gift. Santa was so good to me and sent me a brand new 50mm DSLR Camera lens! No seriously it was given to me for free and i’m over the moon about it! You can see my photography just took a nose dive into awesomeness in the photo above and below . (Fingers crossed all my product photography can look as heavenly!)
So this is good-night/good-morning to whatever time of day it is for you. May your Christmas be filled with love and blessings now and in future days to come!
ps. Ahem excuse me while I whip out my Mariah Carey and Christina Aguilera Christmas Albums and sing into my hairbrush all Christmas day!christmas playlist of throwback 90s to 2000s Jams.
pin this! 🙂
