Best Bargains this Black…

BEST BARGAINS THIS BLACK FRIDAY   This Friday is famously known as Black Friday. This is the day where shops reduce their prices for keen shoppers  to get the best deals before Christmas. Black Friday originated in America and is always the day after US Thanksgiving. The tradition has crept across the pond and there are some great deals on the high street and online which are going to be very tricky to resist! Here at Joyce Guiness we love a bargain and thought that we would let you know our favourite bargains which are due to appear on Black Friday 2017!   MONICA VINADER Who doesn’t love Monica Vinader. Her pieces of jewellery are so simple, yet elegant and really go with everything you are wearing. Whilst I would love to treat myself to her pieces everyday, I feel that on Black Friday it is more justifiable! They are offering a whopping 30% off for Black Friday, which is making it very difficult to resist. If your will power is better than mine, you could use the discount to buy jewellery for friends and family or get someone to get it for you for Christmas.   MISSOMA Missoma is a favourite in our office, their quirky, cool jewellery is a real crowd pleaser and looks amazing. They are offering a black Friday deal, which must be amazing because when..

Cracking Christmas Cooking!

If you know Joyce Guiness, you know how much we love our food! We think that Christmas time is the perfect time to ditch those diets and start sampling all the delights that come at this time of year. We are going to give a run down of our favourite, festive foods and how to create them! PIGS IN BLANKETS To kick start, we are going to do a popular, much loved choice at Christmas- Pigs in Blankets. To find the best recipe we have called on Jamie Oliver who gives us a mouth watering version. Method Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF/gas 4. Working one at a time, lay the bacon out on a board and run the sharp side of your knife along the length of the rasher to stretch it out – this will make it even crispier. Dot with a few herb leaves, then place a sausage at one end and roll the bacon around it until it’s totally wrapped up. Place in a roasting tray and repeat till they’re all done. Cook for 30 minutes, or until golden, gnarly and cooked through. Using a fish slice, scrape the pigs in blankets from the bottom of the tray, leaving them in there, then add the Worcestershire sauce and give it a good shake, scraping all that sticky goodness from the bottom of the tray. Drizzle in the..

Winter in London

The streets are being covered in falling leaves, the days are getting darker earlier, the nights are drawing in and the weather’s getting colder. This can only mean one thing – winter is coming!  As some of you may be experiencing your first winter in London, we have decided to write about the best things to do on the forthcoming cold and dark evenings and let you know that there is more to do than rush home and get cosy in front of the TV. No matter what part of the city you live in, there is always something wintery to do. Mulled wines and ciders are starting to appear in your local pubs and Christmas lights are being hung across the streets and around trees. People are keenly anticipating the appearance of the first brightly decorated trees and Christmas songs on the radio. Winter isn’t all about Christmas however, but the city embraces this and there is a huge amount of activities and fun things for everyone to do, and it doesn’t all cost money! If you’re looking for something free to do, there are parks to explore and Christmas markets to walk around. You could also spend an evening wandering the streets looking at all of the Christmas light which have spread throughout the city, ending at the Christmas tree in Trafalgar square. If you’re prepared to spend..
