What an incredible year it’s been! I can’t believe it’s just about over already, and another year – all shiny, sparkly, new and full of possibility – is about to begin.
Wow. I can’t believe that 2012 is coming to a close. It’s been a massive year which saw me take up blogging back in March as a bit of fun, and amazingly – people started to read Absolute Amy. I’ve covered topics from motherhood, fashion, charity events, reviews, beauty, recipes and giveaways. Thank you SO much to everyone who’s come and said hi, taken the time to leave a comment, other bloggers who have supported, inspired and encouraged me along the way and all the people who have shared what they’re loving in their life, because that’s what blogging is all about – sharing fashion finds, recipes, things for the kids and everything in between – so we can all live a more fun, meaningful and stylish life.

During the festive season, you often need lovely little gifts for friends, family, work colleagues and neighbours. This delicious rocky road is a great alternative to a bottle of wine or box of chocolates and is so easy to make, looks beautiful displayed around the house and is also child and allergy friendly as it doesn’t contain any nuts. I made a batch, filled three clean, empty Glasshouse candle jars, tied some festive ribbon around the jars and voilà! Not only do they look great, they are so convenient to have on hand to take to a Christmas catch up. Next time I’ll create some tags to complete the look.
My lovely friend Alicia gave this recipe to me, so many thanks to her for sharing!
