Welcome to the Christmas Edition of 'Princess Picks'!
A small but perfectly formed selection of 6 of our very own favourite Christmas finds!
All tried, tested, used and perused by us here at The Kingdom.....they each come with our regal seal of approval!
Inspirational Baking - The Pink WhiskThe fabulous and inspiring Ruth Clemens has been sharing amazing bakes and treats with us since 2010, when she came 2nd in The Great British Bake Off competition. As well as being a busy, busy Mum, she is also super talented in the kitchen and she is The Kingdom's officially appointed Princess of Baking!
Ruth really is a hard working, dedicated Princess and we love individuals who are passionate about what they do and who inspire others to follow their dreams.
Follow The Pink Whisk for unbeatable inspirational bakes all year round....you will one day wonder how you ever baked without Ruth in your life! We particularly love Ruth's 12 Bakes of Christmas - daily festive baking suggestions that will make you want to whip out your whisk too!
Thankfully the Princess of Baking has also opened an online store for all your baking needs so there's absolutely no excuse for putting off getting started!
Giving Hope - The Prince's Trust
We love how The Prince's Trust works hard to empower young people, tirelessly working to give them a hopeful and bright future.
We were particularly inspired and impressed by Prince's Trust Ambassador Philip Schofield's Christmas message. Christmas can be a time of joy but it can also be a time of isolation, refection and hopelessness for many people.
Philip reminds us that, in these difficult times, it is so vitally important to give young people the confidence to really believe in their own potential and to give them positivity and optimism for the future.
We feel that this is such an important message, worth remembering all year long not just at Christmas, young people are our future after all.
Christmas spirit on your iPhone - Christmas Song Machine App by Genera Kids
We love Christmas and we are big fans of apps so it made our day to find this super cute Christmas song app for children. The animation and graphics are so sweet and the Christmas sing-a-long jingles are truly wonderful. There is a free 'Lite' version but the full version is currently being offered at a reasonable price of £1.99, about the same price as a packet of mince pies but with less calories!
Its definitely worth downloading, the Princesses think it is great!
Chocolate & 'Princessy' in one place! - Hotel Chocolat
We have always been huge fans of Hotel Chocolat, their website is a chocoholics dream! And the quality of their chocolate selection is, without exaggeration, sublime!
Well, you can imagine our sheer delight to discover 'Princessy' and 'Chocolate' combined in to one amazing product - the sweetly named 'Twinkle Toes Manor'
A beautifully decorated house fit for a Princess bursting with Fairy Princess themed chocolates!
We'll definitely be asking Santa for one of these!
