It’s officially here, the silly season. There’s no escaping it now!

There is a lot going on over at Glamor Hippie this December. I have been busy getting everything ready for our family Christmas, and I have some gorgeous posts for you.

First I have developed the most delicious Christmas cookie recipe imaginable. They are simple to make, and they have been a huge hit. I have also shared my take on the popular Baileys cocktail making its way around Facebook. It’s crazy yummy on a hot day. While everyone in the Northern Hemisphere is enjoying eggnog in the cold weather and we can’t in our summer heat, this cocktail is a brilliant option.

Getting creative with the kids we took to making our own gift tags with salt dough. I tweaked the traditional salt dough recipe and added in a dash of white acrylic paint, making them a little brighter. They look and feel beautiful, adding them to our gifts this year will certainly give them that personal touch I was hoping.

Christmas in Austraila is a beautiful time of year; we have our unique way of celebrating the holiday. I was fortunate enough to live in Scotland in my early 20’s and had the privilege of experiencing Christmas with snow, ice and dark days when we spent all our time together snuggled inside around a roaring fire. I prefer a warm Christmas because it’s what I know and love. However, there are a few elements of a white Christmas that are brilliant, and we can quickly adapt them. The one that I am bringing to my home this year is the smell of Christmas. Christmas in Europe smells incredible! It’s tantalising, and I miss it. So I am going to fake it, you can see how below.

Last but not least I have a post about how to remove some of those dreaded stains that happen over the holidays. HO HO OH NO covers everything from gravy to lipstick stain removal without the need of nasty chemicals.


This year has been a magnificent whirlwind, and I wanted to thank you for being part of that journey. Blogging is not an easy passion, it takes work, determination and without your support Glamor Hippie would not be possible. So thank you!

Glamor Hippie will return in February 2019 full of new ideas and inspiration. I will be taking a small break between now and then to complete my book MAKE IT SIMPLE BUT SIGNIFICANT. I’m passionate about blogging and sharing what you love with those who want to share in it with you.

I created Make it Simple But Significant as a platform to talk about blogging for passion not for money and I have written a book! It’s very exciting; I cannot wait for it to be out in the world, I just need a moment to give it the attention it deserves to finish everything off.
