I love my tea and for Christmas my parents had bought me an infuser teapot so I’d been looking around for some loose leaf tea to put in it. A friend of mine recommended an Etsy shop called Rosie Lea Tea. There are so many different varieties to choose from. There’s even Harry Potter and Game of Thrones themed teas! Plus some literary ones too. I was spoilt for choice!
In the end I chose mini versions of Vanilla Chai, Sweet Cranberry, Decaf Strong Breakfast tea and Chocolate Rose. I also chose a standard sized pack of Sleepy tea.
So far I have tried the Vanilla Chai and it is amazing! Even better than my fave Chai Latte at Costa Coffee! I’m currently drinking Sleepy tea before bed which has camomile and lavender in it. It feels like a warm hug with a comforting herbal aroma and it’s so relaxing. Here’s hoping for a good night’s sleep!
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.
