1. “It’s 10 days before Christmas and our twins are 12 weeks old – two little joyful bundles of noise, sleepless nights and gurgling.

The day of love is almost upon us. Whether you think it’s a cynical ploy to extract whatever disposable income you have left after the Christmas frenzy or the most romantic thing since Romeo scaled a balcony to compare Juliet’s beauty to the sun; you’ll be hard pushed to avoid it.
Go Hearts or Go Home
Manufacturers and stores seemed locked in an unspoken battle to make as many things as possible heart-shaped. If you’re marking the day of romance at home, why not pick up a pair of heart-shaped tuna steaks? They’ll go pretty well with the heart shaped fondant potatoes and heart-shaped chocolate mousse.

Sure you do! As we approach the holiday season, our thoughts turn to the wonderful dishes that we traditionally serve as part of the feast. Of course, the centerpiece of most tables is the turkey!
Just add Tyent Alkaline Water…
Now a roast turkey with all the trimmings is a thing of joy, but there’s a super easy chef’s trick that can make your turkey even more flavorsome and moist than ever before. You might even have heard about it – brining! That’s right, simply leaving your turkey to marinade in a solution of salt water can make a good turkey into a truly great one!
Whether you paint the town red, or slip into your PJ’s and share a bottle of something nice with your nearest and dearest, many of us observe New Year’s Eve in some way, and quite often, it involves the odd drink or two!
If you did choose to indulge, then start laying the groundwork now to avoid spending the first days of 2017 groaning and swearing “never again!”
While the holidays are traditionally a time when we’re encouraged to throw caution (and the bathroom scales) to the wind, it is possible to revel with a little restraint and shore up your system at the same time!
