A Cocktail for New Year’s Eve


Kath's Kitchen

It’s the final day of, without a doubt, the best year of my life so far. It’s been the year of three capital cities (Paris, Rome and New York), a summer holiday and a five star stay in my most local capital city. I turned twenty-one and had a room full of strangers sing a […]

How to Stop Time by Matt Haig


Kath's Bookshelf

After reading and loving and always recommending Matt Haig’s Reasons to Stay Alive, I have been meaning to read one of his works of fiction for a long time. Last year I s-u-c-k-e-d at reading and so, inevitably, this didn’t happen… until this month. I have finished 2017 on a fictional high (and ready to take on […]

The Mrs Claus Hat Edit

Dear December Fourteenth, I have a new favourite hat. Well, December, I say “new.” I’ve never been a fan of hats; they sit weirdly on my head.

DIY Christmas Memory Line

Dear December Eleventh, In a day’s time most of us will be celebrating your main event in the form of Christmas trees, festive front of house displays and a wreath on the door. Our tree, traditionally, goes up on the twelfth- or as close as to the twelfth as possible. As I’m sure you’ve already […]

How to Gift a Disposable Camera


Unkategorised

Dear December Eighth, I visited New York during your older sibling’s month; this November gone. But that’s not really what I want to write to you about today. Before Tarryn and I left for our Big Apple adventure, I gifted her with a disposable camera for her birthday. Attached was a mini card with twenty-two […]

The Green Trouser Edit


Unkategorised

Dear December Third, You give us thirty-one days of red, gold and green. We see these colours sewn into even the most intricate details of your month. I enjoy other takes on Christmas colours; Christmas trees with silver and purple and, well, whatever the Christmas Tree Elf fancies. My brother and I decorate our tree, […]
