Makeover of the Blog

You may have noticed after my nightmare with blogger yesterday, that I some how managed to fix it by changing it up and making the blog a lot more colourful. I got so excited with all the templates that are available and all the different options that I spent nearly an hour deciding what I wanted the blog to look like and I am very happy with the outcome.

There is so many options that you can do regarding colours, font size, font type, backgrounds and pictures. You can pretty much have it however you want it, I love this as its a personal blog you want it to reflect you and how you envisage you blog to be.

I love the new layout of the blog and I now don't have my battle with the words on different lines which was literally making me scream yesterday. It automatically applies all your settings when its post so no fiddling around every time you produce a new post. It gives consistency to your blog - you can probably tell I am excited! I went with a purple and pink theme as this reflects my favourite colours and being very girly.

You can now easily subscribe and follow me so you know when I've posted something new - there's a little tool down the right hand side that I've put in that says follow me, which I think is simple enough! And you can +1 my posts so you can pass them on to others if you want to and its all really easy to use.

So hands up to Blogger and I am now friends with you again!


Christmas Markets

I always say my favourite time of the year is summer it's my birthday, it's sunny, holiday and festival season. Just love it! However, I know this is cheating but I equally love Christmas.

The markets in Manchester are something of a tradition back home. Every year the German markets arrive and line streets and streets with stalls. They mostly sell food and drink but there's also gifts stalls. There's over 300 stalls and it you can spend an entire afternoon just looking round.

First stop was a hot chocolate with cream soo yummy! 

This giant Santa sits in the centre of the city. 

A traditional wooden windmill on top of a stall...

There's beer houses everywhere.. 

The stalls are so much fun and the gift stalls sell jewellery, clothes, crafts, traditional toys and there's quite a few soap and bath stalls which always interest me. I picked up a few bits which I might review over the next week. 

I had such a lovely time and people travel for miles to come but there's so much to look at. The food is always amazing me and my sister always get the miniature pancakes which are so nice. We also got a chocolate covered marshmallow skewer which are also devine. There's so much food to choose from you just don't know where to begin. You think you have found something you fancy then you spot somewhere else that's also smelling amazing! You just want everything! 

I'm definitely feeling festive now I know its early but it's gotta be done! My mum bought me a wooden Christmas tree for my uni room which I'm not allowed to out up until the 1st December! Only 2 weeks to go !
