I have seen a lot of posts circulating the bloggersphere lately about everything that is wrong with blogging events, all of which I 100% agree with. I have just hosted my 4th Pretty Lovely Bloggers event (#PLBSantasGrotto) for bloggers and yes, every time it is the same old story that both Alice Spake and The Prosecco Diaries recently covered in their posts here and here. I can’t tell you how much it frustrates me when people drop out and I have absolutely no problem in blacklisting someone. I know that neither of them have been deterred and they will both…

While at the #PLBSlumberParty we made Banoffee Pies with Caramel Sauce from Bonne Maman. I’d never heard of them before the weekend away, however, I have now discovered they have the nicest caramel spread ever (Sorry Carnation, I still love you too). We each had our own, very cute jars to make our Banoffee Pies in, which I loved because it meant you could easily see all layers. It also meant I was extra careful about getting the layers all lined up, as I wanted it to look perfect. I think I must have said three or four times that…
