One of my favourite things to do around the holiday season is to make cookies! While my parents are partial to my peppermint chocolate chip cookies, my absolute favourite Christmas cookies has always been cut-out cookies.
I recently had the incredible opportunity to go on a girls getaway for three days with some fellow bloggers. For all you gluten-free folk out there, you know how scary traveling can be because of one minor detail: will you be able to eat anything without dying?
During our getaway I did not go hungry once. Not only was everywhere super accommodating with my allergy, but the food was also kinda ah-mazing. One thing that I really loved about the food here was that almost every place we ate was committed to using local ingredients as much as possible. How great is that?
Cheese, wine and meats are some of my favourite things! So naturally, when Two Oceans sent me a few bottles of wine, I knew I had to enjoy them with my family alongside a homemade charcuterie board. (Whoever said charcuterie boards couldn’t be enjoyed at home, anyways?)
Charcuterie boards are a wonderful thing. Being gluten free, I often can’t always eat them when dining out so I resort to making my own. (I won’t lie, I sometimes eat them all by myself too. If you cut me I’ll bleed brie.) They seriously so easy to make at home and are great for whenever you are entertaining.

Ok guys, maybe I’m super lame but I love Valentine’s Day. Not because I’m a romantic, but because I love the colours, decorations and themed stuff! (Seriously, theme parties are my favourite.) I just love all the cute stuff. Or maybe it’s because my birthday is the day before, who knows.
When I was growing up that Valentine’s was always really fun and something that I always looked forward to. We were taught that Valentine’s was a day to celebrate all the people you loved — friends, family, pets, you name it! We would always make cards for everyone, some sort of themed craft and of course, cookies.
Because who doesn’t love cookies?!
