I love getting flowers, Birthdays, Anniversaries and even just a treat to myself, I’ll always find an occasion as I just love having fresh cut flowers in my house. So imagine my joy when a huge box turns up at my door, filled to the brim with two dozen long stem white roses*. This is just standard procedure for the lovely people at OK Bouquet.
I’ve been camping twice in my life, once for a school trip in year 9 to Mersea, the other with a bunch of friends in a field behind my house. Both times I was massively ill-prepared and left with a bitter taste in my mouth about camping. I deemed it as not for me and moved on. But recently, whilst trawling through Pinterest I realised just how beautiful it could be!
Transitioning from Valentines Day in my last post, I felt like I’ve neglected one of the most loved UK holidays that is Pancake Day *Tues 9th February*! But these aren’t your regular run of the mill pancakes, these are my posh pancakes (namely because I finally have a Kitchenaid, & you can bet your bottom dollar I’m going to use it at every opportunity!)
Sorry, I’ve been a little MIA on the blogging front, but I have had the most stressful and exciting few months of my life. Basically, me and Matt bought our first house together, after a year and a half of searching for our perfect place, I am now sitting in my own front room, watching Scream Queens (recommended by the way!) and writing this blog post!
Unfortunately, my day didn’t start off quite how I had planned, after having the previous day off for my birthday, I had completely forgot that London was about to go into meltdown as all of the tubes had ground to a stop. Cue a sad me, trying to navigate to work with street signs and a little bit of hope (I still don’t know how I did it!), finishing work and taking a £50 cab from Liverpool Street to Holborn, but finally arriving- albeit a tiny bit late – to the Shaftsbury Theatre to finally see Memphis the Musical!
As always, I am a few days late with this post, but it has taken me a while to collect enough bits to be considered as ’empties’ because I rarely finish products, I usually just give them away or they get thrown. So here are my January empties that I hope will help you all if you are considering buying them.
Okay, I’ll put my hands in the air and admit that I have a slight problem, but I can’t resist the Boots Advantage Card event and it’s happened again so I’ve got a new haul of the bits and pieces that I have bought. I also had a little spree on Liz Earle so watch out for that in a later blog post!
I’m sure I have mentioned maybe once or twice my love for lush, so as soon as I walked past the Stratford store this week and spied the new Christmas collection I knew I had a few purchases to make. So I bought 7 things altogether, a mixture of ones I have tried before and some new ones to review. I also finally have a use for my cute little wire baskets from H&M! I like how they are easy to get to, and they just fill my room with that iconic lush smell.
