Homemade Irish Cream Recipe by Nevie-Pie…

Homemade irish cream recipe by Nevie-Pie Cakes

Festive Tipple…

Christmas time is here! To celebrate, we welcome back Natasha from Nevie-Pie Cakes who has shared a scrummy homemade Irish Cream recipe with us…I’ll definitely be giving this one a try!

Well Christmas is just around the corner, and rather than risk the bun fight of the shopping malls why not create some homemade presents this year! I know that the phrase ‘homemade’ can conjurer up images of sub-standard gifts, when I was a child I made peppermint creams every year, they were neon green and a variety of unrecognisable shapes, but a homemade gift can be beautiful and delicious.
I have been making Irish cream for many years and I have to say it’s one of the most gorgeous drinks I have ever quaffed. It brings to mind the nectar of the gods because they surely would be tempted by such a rich creamy chocolaty alcohol fueled tipple.
This recipe for Irish cream was given to me about 25 years ago by a vicar, (so surely it is blessed) and has been made nearly every year since. It always goes down a storm and, even if you are not a fan of the commercial stuff, I promise, you will love this. It is so easy to make, taste like heaven, and you must keep the biggest bottle for yourself.

A Decadent, Gold Luxe Bridal Shoot…

Festive, Sparkly Wedding Goodness…

Happy Friday all! I have some festive and super glamorous bridal inspiration for you today! This shoot was put together by the amazing Kirsten, an award winning wedding stylist at The Little Wedding Helper. 

I was lucky enough to meet Kirsten at The Hub last year where she was a guest speaker… her passion for what she does and the support she gives others is really something quite special. Plus I just absolutely adore her work and the fact she can bring together other like-minded suppliers to create such inspirational images.

Over to Kirsten to tell you more about the shoot…

Every now and then my stylist senses start tingling and I know it’s time for a photoshoot. Luckily a team of talented and creative suppliers are just a Tweet away. So, on a rainy Thursday morning, we descended on Bristol’s exclusive Milk Thistle. A hidden gem of a venue right in the centre of Bristol.

In a space that is so atmospheric, we knew we’d have to create a look that was sultry and sophisticated. I decided on a textured look with silks and sequins, velvet and satin. We added touches of gold to bring in the festive spirit and the whole day was captured by the incredible Frances Taylor of Evoke Pictures.
