Nutella is just a perfect treat, whether you put it on toast or make Nutella croissants with it, it is simply delightful to have. Nutella Day was created by Italo-American blogger Sara Rosso on February 5th 2007. She teamed up with another blogger friend to start World Nutella Day, a celebration of all things Nutella. It has become a way for people to discover what Nutella is for the first time and just use the day for an excuse to eat all things Nutella. If you type “World Nutella Day” into any social media network, you will get a huge list of recipes to well wishes. So why not try our simple Nutella Recipe which we were found here. So go and spread the word about World Nutella Day, it’s not too late to find a few recipes and share your creations.

Waffles can be found in many places, and it many different varieties. So let’s talk about the start of Waffle Day. It began in Sweden and is known to be called “Our Lady’s Day” which is made to celebrate the start of spring. You can style your Waffles in many different ways. Why not just get a hand of mixed berries, and squirt some cream on top, or go for the savoury option of stuffed pizza waffles. Both sound amazing, and a perfect way to start spring with some yummy waffles. Here are our Top 3 recipes we found online. The Best Belgian Waffles, Cinnamon Roll Waffles and Stuffed Pizza Waffles.


Deep Dish Pizza Day 5th April


Pizza in general is just heaven sent, it is cheeky and just a great treat. The origins of the deep dish pizza also known as Chicago-style pizza come from Chicago in 1943. The key is to the way it is cooked, rather then in a flat pan it is cooked in a high rise pan. Making it better for overloading on tomato sauce and of course the cheese. It is great because you can stuff it with whatever your hearts desires, that is the magic of deep dish pizzas. We want to show off some amazing recipes we found online for deep dish pizzas. Here are our Top 3 ones. Chicago Style Deep Dish Pizza, Skillet Pizza and Deep Dish Vegan Pepperoni Pizza.


Doughnut Day 3rd June


The final amazing day of the year, which is also heavily celebrated online especially on Tumblr. So in America you lucky guys can actually get free Doughnuts on the day, from Krispy Kreme or Dunkin’ Doughnuts and many other places. Don’t fret people in the UK, why not just find yourself a great doughnut recipe online and make some awesome ones. Plenty to choose from but here are our Top 3 ones. Jelly Filled Doughnut, The Easiest Doughnuts and Churro Doughnuts.

Best way to plan a Birthday

Planning a major birthday can seem rather daunting but if you get organised and have a plan in hand then it’s a doodle. We wanted to share our tips on planning a great Birthday.


Let’s start at the very beginning, we are talking months ahead before the actual birthday.  You might have a certain theme for your birthday or your friend’s birthday in mind. You just might not be totally sure how to style the birthday or you may need that extra help on inspiration. That’s when then internet comes in handy. Two places that are good for inspiration for birthday parties is Pinterest and Blogs. Pinterest makes it easy because if you just enter “Birthday Parties” you get all sorts of suggestions and results. From here you could start a birthday party board and collect all your favourite options from Pinterest or from a blog. Blogs are a great way to get ideas about parties, just looking on blog sites and searching for “birthday parties” might get you a huge list of blog posts written about the topic. You could pin a few ideas from the blog posts so you begin to fill the Pinterest board with plenty of ideas.

So now you have some inspiration sorted and have an idea of how it will look, lets talk about getting prepared. Nothing is worse when you have all the amazing ideas for a party, but end up running out of time. We suggest starting a birthday countdown on our app, you can be specific with time and personalise the countdown. Once you know how many days you have left until a birthday, you can start to set up a to do list. Think realistically how long it will take to do everything, its good to be prepared. Why not also plan ahead and set up a calendar with dates you want to complete tasks?


After all the planning and organisation, the big day will arrive and you can enjoy your special day or your friend’s special day. Why not use the Birthday countdown option, keep track of a birthday and get reminded every year? Never forget important birthdays ever again!

We officially say Hello to 2016 and we hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Years. 2016 is sure to be a great year for events. We decided to list our Top 5 events we are excited to see this year.


  1. Vidcon 2016

We love most things related to Youtube and it has officially been announced at the end of last year that Vidcon is coming back for a 7th year. It will run from June 23-25 in the Anaheim Convention Center. As of recent years it just gets bigger and bigger, more variety of activities more opportunities to see your favourite YouTubers either in person or just on stage. They aim to bring you a lot more stages more space and just a lot more YouTube things for the 7th year. They aim to add more gaming related areas for the 7th year, since the gaming industry and lets players have taken over the world of YouTube. This could definitely be a memorable year for VidCon. We have never personally been, but from everyone’s vlogs from previous years, it just looks like a total blast. So if you are tempted to go then booking tickets is available still, all super early bird tickets have sold out but there are still early bird and standard price tickets available.

  1. Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice Movie

Teaser trailers are coming left right and centre for this movie. It is the follow up to the Superman Movie Man of Steel. A lot of people were sceptical about Ben Affleck being Batman, but I think from all the trailers he looks to be a notable batman. It features Wonder Woman, and a thrilling story about the trio coming together and stoping Lex Luthor and Doomsday from destroying Metropolis. Do You Bleed? It comes out in cinemas on the 25th of March.

  1. Adele Tour

Finally, Adele is back with a new album not only that but she has graced us all with a new Tour. From her rather cryptic first ever interview with Graham Norton she has officially announced her tour for 2016. We adore her new song Hello, which reached No.1 at the end of last year. She is already releasing new material already from her album, with her When We Were Young and Million Years Ago singles. If you want to see her perform new material and some classics, then tickets are still available. She tours from 1 March till the 5th March in the UK, she is sticking around the UK and not announced any worldwide tour as of yet. I am sure if this tour goes well, she may well release some worldwide dates.

  1. The 1975 Album and Tour

After a much anticipated hiatus from The 1975 they are back again with an album and Tour all within one year. The band went and rebranded themselves with rather confusing social media accounts that baffled many fans thinking they had totally quit. With a new album that has a long name, it could be mistaken for a welsh town. I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It. They already have the new single out called Love Me. It’s a totally new sound and look from them, and we can’t wait to get our hands on a copy of the new album. The tour is sure to be a whirlwind of a time; it starts from March 5th till the 22nd. Tickets are still on sale so grab yourself a few and have a great time. If you don’t get tickets now they will be performing at Leeds and Reading Festival.

  1. Justin Bieber Purpose Tour

After his emotional performance at the VMAs last year, he has announced a massive tour and new album. Which has got his fans very excited about, he has come back with a refined sound. Everything sounds a lot more grown up and I think he has a lot more people excited for his new material. He has a brand new album called Purpose and his tour runs under the same name. Already has released some great songs from the new album like Sorry and What Do You Mean? His tour starts a lot earlier worldwide, so if you live in America then you are lucky. The tour doesn’t start till the 11th of October in the UK, but it does run until the 27th of October so you still have plenty of time to grab some tickets.
