An Update and Christmas Gift Ideas


Why hello! Lately I've been getting alot of emails asking about how everything is going with Jesse and I... well, it's about time I wrote an update on everything, right? 

The Visa; 
The papers arrived in Washington and we have been waiting, waiting, waiting for the last fortnight. I cannot tell you how anxious we've been and how desperate we are to hear something soon!

Jesse;  
We're good! We've been discussing wedding ideas (from invitations to flowers to colour schemes) even though we're not able to set a concrete date as of yet. We're hoping to be together and Christmas - but we're waiting to hear from a caseworker so that we can get the all clear to travel!

Me; 
Well - I've been busy working and stressing (over visa things) and other than that, I'm quite boring! ;P As far as health goes - I haven't been good. I've tried a new supplement that is supposed to increase my energy and help my IBS - but so far, it's given me headaches, extreme nausea and made me want to sleep all the time - but I can see slow improvements. The new supplement has a week to show its stuff, or it's out the window! 

Baking; 
See blog - non existant. I really need to get my act together! I haven't baked anything in what feels like forever! I am hoping to get some time to bake very soon as I want to perfect my gluten free Christmas pudding (allbeit very adapted thanks to my intolerances). 

Christmas; 
So far - my Christmas list is sorted for my family. I've bought Jesse's Christmas presents and they're on their way, my mum and dad's will be purchased very soon and I know exactly what Jesse and I will buy my sister. I like to think of myself as a pretty good gift giver and generally start thinking about what I'll buy for Christmas halfway through the year (if not the day after Christmas :P) 

I'm definitely a gift giver and not a gift receiver - I never like to ask for presents and am much happier finding the perfect gift for someone else!



Recently, I received a beautiful bangle from Amber Adora. Amber Adora is an Australian based online jewellry boutique which sells stunning European Designed Amber pieces.

Amber is actually fossilised tree sap - and Amber Adora stocks amber pieces in a variety of different colours. The piece I received was a Cognac Bangle which is super delicate and lovely - and perfect for those with small wrists. 

I have teeny tiny wrists - and have never been able to find bangles or bracelets which fit, but this was perfect!



Amber Adora have plenty of different designs to suit all different personalities - and offer bangles, pendants, necklaces, brooches and earrings. 

I actually have one cousin who I know would love any of the Amber Adora pieces - so they are definitely on my Christmas list. Best of all? Amber Adora offer 30 days money back guarantee - so if for whatever reason you're not happy, they'll make sure that you are.

So tell me - what's been happening in your world? 
Have you started thinking about what you'll buy for your loved ones this Christmas?
