At last, time to open the polvorones and turrón guilt-free! I may have begun sampling in November – purely for testing purposes, of course. We wouldn’t want Christmas to be ruined by a faulty batch.

Also on the menu is copious Red Red Wine which will inevitably lead to Dire Straits. Can you guess who I’ve been interviewing this month? Two musical legends allow us an exclusive interview to discuss life, art, and of course, music.

As all people who do Christmas right know, December is all about the decadence. So put down that kale smoothie and head on over to our recipe pages to learn how to make an easy-peasy-nutmeg-wreathy edible centrepiece, your very own vegan cranberry cheese, and – love them or loathe them, no Christmas would be complete without them – mince pies.

Tis the season to be jolly, but it isn’t without its worries – namely financial ones. Resham reveals the extent of our spending situation around the holidays, and offers some budgeting tips as well as some nifty ideas for DIY gifts.

Also on the topic of money, Alex discloses the results of a survey conducted on the millennials mindset to money management. How aware is this generation of alternative investment opportunities?

On the first day of December Gib Mag gave to me… 12 wines of Christmas and 5 festive holiday destinations. Chris helps us through the dark nights, damp mornings, and dreary afternoons by giving us five great options for a winter getaway, whilst Andrew educates us on the tipple that should accompany our Christmas spread.

Office parties, get-togethers with friends, family reunions, New Year’s… we’re all thinking it. ‘What do I wear?!’ Julia’s back to save us from any festive faux-pas with her fashion advice.

Wishing you a very merry Christmas, and a LLani new year.

See you in 2019!
