Alright, are you listening? Sit down. Get a pen and paper.
Goddess mother and all-round Australian obsession, Bec Judd, has given us precious insight into her perfect life by releasing her Christmas entertaining tips. Homg.
Writing for Super Savvy Me, Bec has heard our cries of ‘More! More!’ and cracked the curtains to give us a peek inside the Judd Christmas party.

Bec’s secret recipe seafood dip is super easy: just mix sriracha chilli, mango, wasabi or anything else you like into Japanese kewpie mayo. Yum.
But Bec knows the Aussie Christmas seafood rush takes prep:
“…Be sure to order it all well ahead, because I know I’m not the only one with this great idea!”
