The Ultimate Rabbit Hole #47

The Ultimate Rabbit Hole 47

Here’s Kimba’s late bunny mate, Mr Bunsy. Me thinks this Santa-esque snap will have everybunny feeling festive, don’t you? Now, tell me if you could describe your week in one word, what would it be? Mine would be “whirlwind”! It seemed no sooner than it was Monday that it was Saturday again! But that’s nothing to complain about because I just fast forwarded my way to the weekend and some quality reading time down the rabbit hole. Let’s hop to it, shall we?

First things first, thanks to everyone who entered the Grand Festive Giveaway – you can check out who won what here.

Today is National Sacher Torte Day but this cake is as complicated as it is delicious and ain’t nobody got time for that! Yesterday was National Cookie Day and I always have time for cookies, don’t you? If you’re a cookie monster like me, you will need to check out these 26 Insanely Delicious Cookies You Won’t Be Able To Resist.

Talking of special food days, how about 31 of them? December is National Cookie Cutter Month and I am very excited about it. I collect cookie cutters, did you know? And my ambition in life is to have a collection rival Nigella, because she collects them too! I don’t get to use my cookie cutters as often as I’d like so I’m keen to try out these Neat Things You Can Make With Cookie Cutters, and believe it or not, not one of them’s a cookie!

Christmas is coming and I am very excited about it. If you’re looking for some top tips, clever tricks and delicious recipes for the festive season then you need to download this FREE Christmas Survival Guide and not just because you can find my best ever fudge recipe inside! Don’t delay, download it today!

I love me a good hack, and these Christmas ones are just cracking! You’ll be reading it and thinking why didn’t I think of that?

If you’re after some wreath action and your fingers aren’t green, you should totally check out this DIY Christmas Light Wreath, it’s so easy, I think even I could do it! For more wreathy good ideas, check out this showcase of Christmas loveliness.

Talking of Christmas loveliness, how cute (not to mention delicious) is this Chocolate Nativity Scene complete with jelly baby Mary and Joseph! Best!

Christmas is the season of yum, that’s for sure. I don’t want to spend most of 2016 working off the calories I consumed at Christmas 2015, and for that reason, I’m loving these 12 Ways to Have a Healthy Festive Season.

While we’re on the subject of being healthy and taking care of yourself check out the low tox products that Shannon is loving. I’m still in love with my Jamberry nail wraps which are five free, gluten free and even vegan! Oh and they make awesome Christmas presents. Just sayin’!

I don’t know whether it’s because I’m getting older or more cynical (or both,) but Christmas seems to be getting more commercialised every year. Often, the simplest gifts are the most meaningful and here are eight great ideas to get you started. And remember while you’re taking a ride on the Giving Train don’t forget to give something back to yourself. Here are 11 gifts to give from you to you.

And one last thing before I go, how cute is this Kit Kat Christmas Forest? 

Have you got  a good Christmas hack? Is it me, or do you think Christmas is commercialised too? Will you have a wreath on your door? Have you got a low tox product that you love? Whatever you’re up to this weekend, hope it makes you happy!

Every Saturday morning, we will open up the rabbit hole link up for bloggers to add their link list posts or even just their favourite post (if you are not of the link list kind) for the week.  Do try and pop along to say howdee to some of  the other lovely linkers. Link up here, over at Calm to Conniption or My2Morrows. It doesn’t matter where you add your link because it will appear on all three blogs, as if by magic!  The link up will stay open until midnight the following Monday.

Be a smarty and join this linky party!

    • You’ve still got 19 days to get into the groove, M. And yes, it must be the moon! Hope you’ve had a winning weekend xx

  • Yes to ‘whirlwind’ – I’ll be downloading that survival guide to Christmas. The link through to the winner of the competition doesn’t win 🙁 {I’d like to be able to click through and see my name}.

    • Thanks for the heads up about the link – wanna be my official proof reader? Enjoy that survival guide – it’s cracking! I hope you got to press the pause button this weekend x

      • I’m terrible at proof reading – I normally proof read my posts after I have hit publish 🙁

  • I haven’t even started Christmas shopping and we are currently putting in a new kitchen, I’m so stressed I can hardly breathe! Somehow it will all get done!

    • Saw your new kitchen on social media and it looks awesome! A new kitchen is my dream Christmas present. Keep calm and carry on Christmassing! x

    My week in one word- unexpected. After landing in hospital & having an op on Monday, that definitely wasn’t in the plans…
    I love The cookie cutter wreaths & those light catchers, what a neat idea.

    • Oh love, so sorry, I had no idea. I hope you are well on the road to recovery. I loved those cookie cutter ideas too. I hope you’re having a weekend of wellness… and fun too!

  • I’ve got everything ready for a batch of cookies sitting there waiting to go, just need to get the time to get around to it! I love making cookies at Christmas 🙂

    Thank you for the link up, and hope your Christmas preparation is going well!

  • Thanks for my prize Sammie….I hope your weekend is wonderful too. Denyse

  • I am planning on making a wreath for our front door this weekend. I found the plain wreath at the op-shop for $4, so all we need to do now is decorate it with baubles. Have a fab weekend Sammie.

  • Tree is up, lights are charged and ready to be placed, Christmas shopping is done, now it’s all about the catch ups with friends and family. YAY!

  • I think I need more chocolate torte in my life. I never think to make it but I think it’s my favourite kind of cakey thing.

  • I love the light wreath! I could definitely do that! 🙂 I do think Christmas is getting more commercialized, sadly. And I do hang a wreath on my door, but on the inside so I can see it. 🙂

    • I live in an apartment so feel a bit silly having a wreath on the front door but I love the idea of an indoor wreath! Isn’t the light one fantastic?

  • Oh Christmas. Just when I decide there is enough months between me and it it turns up again. Darn. I just make Pizza Dip

  • Gosh, my word for last week… EXCITING! I was ticking things off my to do list left right and centre plus the Mr arrived home a week early for 6 weeks holiday! Woot! Christmas is here!

  • Everything is getting soooo christmassy and I can’t stop thinking of my travel!!! I’m going crazy! Haha!!! xx cathy

    • I’m going crazy with excitement for Christmas and your trip! I know I shouldn’t wish my life away… But, I just can’t help myself 🙂
