Mini American Haul

Apologies for being AWOL on here recently, I promise to show this blog more love over the next few months. I’ve got a few Christmas baking recipes I can’t wait to share so keep your eyes peeled!

There was no way I could leave without partaking in a little shopping trip…because you know what they (I) say, “when in America, shop!”.
