Rose & Grey styling challenge

Pass through the seven levels of the candy cane forest

Pass through the seven levels of the candy cane forest

November's been a somewhat tricky month ever since I became a parent. I want to get all of the Christmas planning out of the way so that I can sit back in December and enjoy the festive season without any stress, worry or need to shop. And yet, it feels way to soon to be singing Jingle Bells, thinking about whether the addition of orange zest will turn my mince pie recipe from good to lip-smackingly gorgeous, and if it's really a winning idea to let my eldest choose another Christmas tree decoration after what happened last December. However, while carols and Christmas films are strictly forbidden until December 1st, and the tree won't make an appearance until around December 20th, I have made a nod to the impending season of champagne, sparkle and sequins by decorating my new pegboard with a festive theme.
