Blogmas Day 22: Cupcakes Galore!


We spent most of today out Christmas shopping so Emilia kept it pretty comfy in this super soft stripy pink hoody from Next, matching pink headband and some ridiculously cute bunny slippers from Jellycat!  Jonathan just about died of cuteness overload when he saw them!  He has a thing for baby shoes...ha ha ha!  


Here I am drinking my (much-needed) bowl cup of coffee in Costa before we braved the chaos and insanity that is last-minute Christmas shopping...ugh.  Remind me next year NOT to leave it all to the last minute!  Having said that it actually wasn't as stressful as I had anticipated and I managed to get most of it done (with the exception of Jonathan...who still remains the most impossible person on the planet to shop for).  So it looks like I'll have to repeat this craziness again tomorrow or maybe even Christmas Eve - not looking forward to that!!  


I didn't get a chance to post this yesterday but I received this amazing gift from a lovely subscriber called Shannon, all the way from Oklahoma!  Yes, this beautiful little cupcake tree survived its trip to Ireland.  Thankfully Shannon wrapped her really well :)  What a wonderful gift and it goes perfectly with my cupcake room!  We have the most thoughtful and kind subscribers/viewers - thank you so much to all of you who watch our videos, leave nice comments & tweets, send messages and letters.  We really appreciate every single one of you! 


We indulged in a little bit of naughty Christmas food shopping recently...and here is one of my picks!  White Cadbury's fingers - the best evening treat!  


I will leave you with what I think are probably my favourite pyjamas ever - Emilia has been covered with cupcakes!  These even have little pink frills on the bum...ha ha ha!  I love them!  Thank you Michael for sending them to us! :)  

Stay Stylish!

  3. You really should stop drinking coffee when you are breastfeeding you are the cause of Emilia's poo explosions. Aren't you ashamed you give her so much grief

  4. Anna I so admire you, you a really pretty and beige. Pretty please with cupcakes on top can you do a video on how you have a heart for telling Emilia off for her poop explosions but don't tell your dog off when it chews your iPhone case. I so wish I could do that! I will once I see your tips and trips, thank you so much.

    1. You need to get a grip on your life. Nothing better to do then be negative, you are for lack of a better word... A bit of a tit. You have nothing good to say or you don't like the blogs then either don't say anything or just don't follow the blogs.

    2. At least Sarah speaks the truth.

  5. please, at this time of year, if you don't have anything nice to say just don't say it... i wish you joy peace and happiness over the festive season anonymous commenter who pretends to be Sarah hussain, because you obviously lack these things in your life....

  7. Well said Fiona! I am a regular reader of Anna's blogs and had noticed these nasty and abusive comments and thought to myself what an idiot that cyber bully wannabe is not realising Anonymous posts are traceable. I too work in IT consultancy and have traced IP addresses for companies where abusivd comments have been made. Some of these cases end up in litigation.

    1. They are not abusive comments, these people are saying the truth. It is clear from the vlogs that Emilia's "poo explosions" are from Anna drinking too much coffee. Anna really did get mad at Emilia for having a poo explosion but didn't get mad at the dogs for chewing on the ipad. These comments are not cyberbullying, they are just observations people have made. No one is getting sued for posting their observations, it's called freedom of speech.

  8. Please stop drinking coffee, it's clearly upsetting Emilia's tummy. All that caffeine isn't good for a baby.

  9. Dear Anna, this is the first time that ai m writing you a commnt here and on youtube. I have been following you for so long and I think that you are so blessed. You have a beautiful daughter and your hubby seems so fun and sweet. Thank you for sharing the personal things of your life, like your wedding and when you gave birth. I love watching the latter, you seem so relaxed and confident and it makes me less stressed out when I think of hen I'll be in labour.
