I have this knack of accidentally sitting back, forgetting my book is there, and creasing the cover or it being accidentally knocked off the arm of the chair. 😭 So I thought it high time I got me a book sleeve! How blooming cute is this by The Story Gift? Ahhh books and cats (and black cats no less!)… Two of my favourite things!
I also just had to have the metal bookmark too. It was a tough choice between tea and coffee though because I actually love to drink both – though not at the same time obviously haha. I would love to also make a suggestion for a cat and books inspired bookmark. Then my life will be complete! 😀
My daughter is currently walking around “keeping my book and sleeve safe” as she cuddles them, bless her. She says she wants one of her own so I may have to see if there’s one she’d like.
I’d definitely recommend a book sleeve. I honestly don’t know why I haven’t bought one before now!
Wow I am actually an owner of a genuine piece of art!
I am so in love with this fluid painting by Foxx Art Official! This piece of art is called “Sahara” and I’m so happy that it’s now home with me and I can call it mine. I have been admiring Foxx Art’s pieces for quite a while now, just waiting for the right piece to call out to me, so as soon as Hannah from Foxx Art posted about this piece I knew I had to have it.
I love the orange with the gold glitter running through it. It’s so beautiful! I don’t think I’ll be stopping at owning just this gorgeous piece, there’s sure to be more of her art that I’ll want to own. You should definitely stop by her Facebook page or her Instagram and check out more of her amazing art!
“Let’s Avocuddle!!” Happy Mother’s Day to all you mamas out there (we celebrated back in March here in the UK) but we wanted to share the love and celebrate again with you all!
Willow is modelling this seriously cute tee from the vegan run brand, Happy Hooves! The tee is really good quality and made from 100% cotton. It’s age 2-4 so plenty of growing room for Willow. Absolutely love this design and the quirky slogan! I’ve also got my eye on a Harry Potter inspired hoody (you’ve gotta check it out!) and their Happy Hooves mug. For all you makeup addicts out there, there’s even a design for you guys! Happy Hooves is regularly coming up with new designs so keep your eye for them. I can’t wait to see what else they come up with. If you pop on over to their site and see something you like, I have a 20% off promo code for you guys so feel free to use it (valid until 11.59pm on 19th May) : JPXV0S2C9ZC5.
I hope you’re all having a wonderful day and that you mummies are up to something really special!
As soon as I saw Shay and Blue London had an offer on their Black Tulip sample size I jumped at the chance! It had me at “white chocolate”! Oh my god Black Tulip is absolutely divine! Honestly wish I had smell-o-vision right now, guys!
It has notes of plum, white chocolate, black tulip, cyclamen and snowdrops. I can’t stop smelling myself; it’s such a rich, decadent, sweet and beautiful fragrance! If you wear different perfumes in the daytime than you would at night then I’d definitely say this is the perfect scent for a night out. Particularly if it’s for a romantic dinner!
Normally, the sample sizes are £5, and for 2ml, I’d say that’s quite steep but with the promo code: BLACKTULIP the sample was just £1 with free delivery. I couldn’t grumble at that and it turned out to be so worth it! Would definitely recommend you guys stop on by Shay and Blue to try it out for yourself. You can thank me later! 😀
Hey guys and gals! I cannot tell you how happy I am that these have arrived! My skin is crying out for help. It did not like my Body Shop face wash at all. It made my face sore and spotty and gave me dry patches so fingers crossed Angels on Bare Skin will soothe it and make it feel much better. As well as using Celestial moisturiser on my face, I’m going to use it on my hands. They are so awful atm and my palms are so itchy and sore! I made sure I went for a product that has mostly natural ingredients and NO perfume because my skin is quite sensitive and I have dermatitis/eczema so a lot of things can set it off.
Hop on over to K Rose B Cosmetics to check out their amazingly pigmented (I’m not kidding! They really are crazy pigmented) eyeshadow pans and lashes! The eyeshadows pans are 36mm in size, so bigger than standard pans, and also come with an iron sticker so that you can put them in your magnetic palettes!
Eyeshadows = £4
Magnetic palette = £5 (currently showing out of stock)
Lash applicator = £4.50
Lashes = £8.50 – £12
Here’s an example of a couple of the eyeshadows and how pigmented they are (pics taken from the site).
Anyone else love Imperial Candles? They are a soy wax candle company who put a nice sparkly surprise inside your scented candle – either a ring, earrings or necklace.
They also do wax melts, bath bombs and bath salts. You can choose what type of jewellery you would like or keep it a total surprise. The design and whether it is 925 sterling silver, 9ct yellow or white gold will also be a surprise. I bought my first candle – cherry vanilla and it smells like cherry bakewells! – a few days ago (and also bought one for my mum at Christmas and I’ve bought my sister one for her 30th next month) and this is what was inside mine.
The ring is 925 sterling silver and the gemstone is Madagascan Ruby. I really want another now. I’ve actually asked my other half if he’d get me one for Valentines Day! Think this will be my new obsession! Move over Yankee Candles, I have a new love!
I love this time of year when the leaves are falling off the trees and are beautiful autumnal colours of reds, golden yellows and burnt oranges. I also love that it’s Halloween season which means that I can wear my fave Lime Crime lippy in Pumpkin Pie and know that no one will bat an eye lid! Not that I wouldn’t wear it any other time of the year but October is the perfect excuse! So I thought I would share with you a makeup look that I did a couple of days ago.
Excuse my gormless face hahaha some very serious looking poses going on there. 😂
I have also used my Jeffree Star Androgyny eyeshadow palette for my eyes and my Younique brow pencil on my brows (well obv. 🙄 I mean, where else would you use it). What do you think? Do you have any favourite makeup looks for Fall/Autumn/Halloween?
I still don’t know what I’m doing for Halloween yet or how I’ll do my makeup if we do decide to do something. I haven’t even got an outfit in mind! I left my favourite outfit at my parents which I’m quite gutted about! Oh well, I’ll figure it out somehow!
That’s it’s for today guys. I hope you’re all well and having a great weekend! Bye for now!
