Yesterday evening I was feeling
dreadful, washed out with a tummy upset, it was nice to have a lie down and
flick through the pages of Landlust taking some time to recoup. To celebrate their 10th
anniversary they have developed a new website Landlust continuing to honour the spirit
of the countryside (useful if you want to have a peek inside the magazine too!) and they also wanted to introduce bloggers like myself to their
successful country living periodical.

The website is much like the magazine and also filled with wonderful
photographs that will inspire you to cook and craft and transform your home and
garden into a beautiful and welcoming space.
It’s my first introduction to the
magazine but I am sure it won’t be my last.
I can completely see why 1 million people buy the magazine it’s a lovely
read, very enlightening and the information included is very easy to
follow. The magazine is priced at £4,
it is a fair price as its not filled to the brim with adverts, I noticed only a
couple the majority of the space is absolutely jam packed with useful tutorials
to get you busy creating. I am going to
task hubbie to make the delicious looking Chocolate Loaf on the little booklet
on the front of the magazine, he is a much more talented baker than me, so when
I am feeling better a slice of cake might be very restorative.
With this being the
November/December issue there is a section dedicated to creative Christmas
decorations which I enjoyed the most.
Tracing stars was very straightforward but looks effective.
seeing the simple fir trees for children to get them involved in making
something, afterwards you could probably develop the theme and get them to
craft mini decorations for them too!
Anything to keep the children out of mischief, let’s just say half term
has been particularly tricky here! Both
the boys seem intent on battling each other, poor mummy is exhausted, so some
craft suggestions to keep them focused on anything but fighting is ALWAYS very
The next issue will come out on the 22nd of
March 2016 and is all about spring, so look forward to pretty blooms and rhubarb recipes.
