I’m on the Blogtacular Podcast!

I listen to Podcasts almost every day of the week. I subscribe to lots, across a really broad range of topics from creativity to business, storytelling and inspiration. I’ve attended Blogtacular in London since its launch in 2014- and every year it proves to be a super inspiring, whirlwind of weekend.  Kat announced that they’d be starting a podcast to…

Biscuit Crafts – Oreo Christmas Pudding DIY

Biscuit Crafts – Oreo Christmas Pudding DIY

Remember a few years ago, I whipped up a batch of Tunnocks Teacake Christmas puds as an homage to one of our favourite cushion designs? They were such a hit (I think they’re actually my post pinned image on Pinterest, EVER) I’ve decided to try a little variation for 2016. What do you think of my little Oreo cookie Christmas Puddings?…

Christmas Decor at Biscuit HQ

Christmas Decor at Biscuit HQ

It’s that time of year again. There’s a chill in the air and the fancy boxes of assorted chocolate biscuits are taking up almost a whole aisle in the supermarket. If I’m being totally honest, I ate half a chocolate orange for my lunch today, and I’ve been contemplating mulling all of our hot drinks- which means that the festive season is…

Etsy Made Local Glasgow 2016

Internet shopping is pretty great, right? You can do it in your pyjamas, whilst eating a mince pie and you don’t even need to leave your couch. BUT…if you ask me, there’s nothing quite like the festive buzz of a real-live Christmas market, and that’s why we can’t wait for Etsy Made Local in Glasgow this December 3rd! We’ll be…

Biscuit Porridge Bowls for a camping adventure!

Biscuit Porridge Bowls for a camping adventure!

Scotland is one of the only places where wild camping (that’s pitching your tent outwith an organised campsite) is allowed. We took a trip to the east coast with some friends earlier on in the year, and got bitten hard by the camping bug (legend has it that there’s no midgies on the east…so there was no danger of any…

Biscuit Wedding

Biscuit Wedding

I was never one of those little girls that dreamed of a fairytale wedding. Whilst going through boxes of old things recently, I found one of my childhood story books: The Tough Princess. It made me smile…and explained a lot! In the story, princess Rosamund alludes betrothal to ride bikes, shoot arrows and pretty much do whatever she damn wants! Michael…

Parma Violet Ombre Dream Shed DIY

If you follow my instagram (and instagram stories now, too!) you’ll have seen a preview snap of my ombre dream shed. You’ll also know that I’m pretty partial to a spot of DIY. I have a fairly endless list of things that I’d like to make and do for our home and there’s been a lovely response to the projects…

Oor Wullie Bucket Trail – Biscuit Break Wullie

Oor Wullie Bucket Trail – Biscuit Break Wullie

Dundee will always have a special place in my heart.  One of the cool things that I noticed about Dundee when I moved there to study at DJCAD way back in 2003, was the public art that inhabits the city centre. It’s primarily bronze, with little nods to Dundee’s cultural history & achievements with a wee bit of fun on…

Recipe: Nikki’s Unicorn Shortbread

I baked these magical little biscuits for a friend visiting last week. They’re super easy to make and quick enough to pop in the oven an hour before your pals knock the door. I made the dough the night before- which took me about 15 minutes- and then popped it in the fridge ready to freshly bake in the morning….
