A great coffee table book is always a favourite gift of mine - to give or receive - and there are some super-chic new ones out this winter (as well as a few I still haven't gotten my hands on despite dropping many hints)
Here are my top eight gorgeous coffee table tomes - which one will you be hoping for this Christmas?

Day two of Melissa's favourite Christmas cocktails & we've moved onto something a little more adventurous (that may take a little more preparation time, but is more than worth it!)...inspired by Charles Dickens very own recipe, a fabulously festive hot gin punch, perfect to warm up your chilly guests when arriving in from the cold.

We here at Melissa Odabash love a cocktail any time of year, but Christmas gives us the opportunity to go all out decadent with some truly special concoctions. Every day this week Melissa will be posting one of her favourite cocktail recipes, to make sure you are the 'hostess with the most-est' should you be having any Christmas parties this festive season!
Super-easy & very impressive, fool your guests into thinking you are an expert mixologist by jazzing up a simple glass of prosecco with a hint of delicate rose - no one need ever know there is only two ingredients in this refreshing, fragrant cocktail..!
Ingredients:One bottle of Prosecco/dry champagneRose syrupRose petals to garnish
Preparation:Fill champagne flutes with prosecco & gently pour in rose syrup allowing it to trickle to the bottom of the glass. Float a rose petal on top to garnish.
