Woo-hoo it’s December, which means CHRISTMAS time, which also means decorating the Christmas tree! I always put my tree up on the first of December, but with it being a Monday I begged James to let me put it up on Sunday evening.
I got all the lovely new decorations out, popped on some Christmassy tunes and got to work. Now decorating a tree is not easy work, we have an artificial tree and so first of all it needs to be put together, then there are the lights to add on, the tinsel and then all of the decorations (of which we have a LOT of!), and so after about an hour I decided it was time for a break.
This time of year I love having a glass of Baileys, to me it is a festive beverage, although I have drunk it at other times of year, and the smell and taste really gets me in that Christmas mood. I grabbed my bottle of Baileys Chocolat Luxe, and poured myself a drink. And Oh my gosh it smelt heavenly. I am sure you will have all heard of the regular Baileys, an Irish cream liquor, but the chocolate version really is something else.
It fuses real Belgian chocolate with Irish whiskey and cream, combining luxury ingredients including Madagascan vanilla and over 30g of real Belgian chocolate per bottle – when my time of the month rolls around, I am now dumping the bar of chocolate and getting this little beauty out!
I think the Baileys Chocolat Luxe is a fab drink to have on the table if you are having friends and family round this Christmas time, as well as it being a great gift idea for the alcohol-lover friend or family member. The taste is so luxurious and creamy, and definitely tastes special and is a perfect treat to warm those insides whilst it is super cold outside. Baileys have also brought out a special Gold edition bottle in time for Christmas, which is available at all major stores for £16.99.
So, eventually, after heartbreakingly parting from the Baileys Chocolat Luxe, I managed to finish the tree. For those who might have missed it, we recently got a little kitten called Millie, and although the tree is still standing, she is working her way through pawing off each decoration and we have only had one broken decoration so far – TOUCHING WOOD A LOT HERE! Pass me the Baileys, it is going to be a long December.
