happy {almost Christmas} weekend & lovely links

It's the weekend before Christmas and there is still so much to be done!

 It's my Mum's birthday, so tonight I'm cooking up a celebratory feast and then tomorrow hubby and I are off to celebrate with friends at a couple of Christmas parties. Tis the season!

Let's hope the weather plays nice and the sun comes out; its been a bit of a gloomy summer here so far, but I'm still hopeful the sun will make an appearance.

Here are few festive lovelies that caught my eye this week...

* Holiday baking: these fruit mince pie pops & dark chocolate sweet treats look delicious!

If you haven't finished your shopping and are looking for some inspiration, don't forget to check out the Christmas Gift Guides.

Have a wonderful weekend friends!
