    Christmas Card Swap 2o17

    Hello everyone! Now I know the title of this post has probably put The Fear into a lot of you and for that I’m sorry! But it’s coming up to that time of year again. Heck, I’ve even had blogmas posts in my drafts since March! However we won’t go there yet.   Do you love receiving Christmas Cards? Does writing them fill you with the Christmas Spirit? Well, how would you like to get involved in my Christmas Card Swap?   My plans to spread some Christmas Cheer in 2017 is quite a large one, and a major part of it is this Christmas Card Swap. The plan? Simply…

    This Time Next Year Tag

    The days are passing quicker and quicker. I swear there aren’t 24 hours in every single day. At least, they aren’t being overly helpful – so much to do, so little time!

    Whatcha Listening To?

    EEEEK!!! We’re into the last few days and I am beginning to really stress! Today, I’m going into town in the hope of seeing something somewhere to buy for Rachel’s final part of her Christmas present. Mum’s officially off for Christmas, and I think she had a good day on Saturday celebrating her birthday. Don’t think my liver will recover on time for this weekend though!   For once, I’m actually getting to listen to Christmas music on the TV while writing this post. It’s quite rare that I can have a TV show on while blogging, so the novelty is making me feel even more festive! While today’s post…

    Christmas Giveaway!

    Yes my dears, you are in for a treat – Life with Ktkinnes is hosting its first ever giveaway this Christmas! For more information, please keep reading! Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat, and sitting in the corner of my room is this lovely set of prizes for one lucky winner. As some of you may be aware, Christmas is one of my favourite times of the year. Yes, there’s all the food, and the lights, and all the happy music playing while you get drunk (just me?), but my favourite thing about this time of year is that I can give people random presents and no one…

    Christmas Card Swap!

    So I know that a lot of you will feel it’s too early for this kind of a post, but I have finally started Christmas present shopping and I’m getting really excited for the festive season!   In our flat, because of my ‘obsession’, there’s a rule that Christmas isn’t properly mentioned until at least 1st November. Apparently my excitement for the most wonderful time of the year makes people associate Christmas as a bad thing as they can’t talk about it without worrying they’re going to set me off. However, this year I have you lovely people to talk to about it so I think I’m doing better than…

    Day 24 – Seasons

    What is your favourite season and why? Okay so firstly I’m going to apologise because I wrote this actually on the 24th but for whatever reason it never saved as either scheduled or published so now it’s late and I have to try and remember what I put here. Actually, anyone who has me on snapchat (which of course you all should – lifewktkinnes) will have seen me starting work on this post the other day! Picking a favourite season is hard! I have different reasons for loving all four seasons and so I’m going to list them all below. Isn’t that what the gratitude challenge was about, taking time…

    Day 18 – Food

    What food makes you feel good and why? Okay so by rights the question here should be ‘What food doesn’t make you feel good?’ – I love everything! Nothing beats a good homemade lasagne where the cheese has gone brown in places and the layers are clear, served with a warm garlic bread and salad. Or in summer, a barbecue is the go to food! However, the one meal that will forever make me feel good is Christmas dinner. I’ve already started planning the Christmas dinner for our flat in December! We always have a Bloody Mary Soup for a starter. I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned it here but it’s basically…

    A little unscheduled post…

    Well as the title might suggest, I have an unplanned post for this early morning. As I’m sure you’ve seen, I’m part of a wonderful community of girls over at Girl Power Blog where I’ve met some of the best people I’ve ever known. We’ve become so close in the last week alone that I honestly am surprised I haven’t known them longer!  Through meeting these amazing girls, I realised just how great the blogging community can be. I mean, I knew there were some lovely people out there (1weekmary for example – hi there!) but these girls became a part of my life in a way that’s hard to explain. There’s…
