Channel 5 Christmas films are my guilty pleasure. If you aren't aware, Channel 5 screens lots of American made-for-TV films. This includes a large selection of festively themed films at this time of year, and they generally are of the 'so bad they're good' variety. This year though, I've been surprised that some of them have actually been... good. With proper scripts. And acting. Here then are my top picks, to get you in the festive spirit. (I'm afraid this is for UK-based readers who have access to Channel 5, but you may have these films on other channels in your country).

No outfit post today, I'm off having an adventure! So, instead, the last post with this roundup of failed purchases was such fun, I thought I'd do another one. As with the last one, these are lovely items that just aren't suited to me, but they may well look smashing on you. Why didn't they suit me? Read on.

It's been a while since I've reviewed any local restaurants, but I have a special one to write about today. Mãe Maria is a new Portuguese restaurant and deli, in Canton, Cardiff. They had their grand opening last week, and I was pleased to get an invitation. I went with my husband, and we were treated to an impressive spread of tapas and main dishes, along with some wine tasting. It felt quite festive also, as the restaurant had their Christmas decorations up.
