Happy Hooves Tee Shirt Review.

“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!

Shopping Haul and No Makeup Day.

I woke up this morning with an awful dry patch on my chin and around my jawline. Suffice to say, I was not impressed! I *think* I’ve had a reaction to something but not sure what so will have to single out a product to see which it is. I suspect it may be my rose toner. I was going to wear makeup today as was wanting to experience with my Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow palette but thought I should give my skin a rest so this is me au naturale:

  

Bar my Yours Truly Organics Fix Me! Repairing Serum, Dr. Hauschka Daily Hydrating Eye Cream and Clinique Moisture Surge Gel Creme.

Despite me still having a cold, my sister and I had a great day yesterday. We went into Scunthorpe and did a bit of shopping before going to the cinema to see Insurgent. I love the top I bought from Select. It’s very Faith from Buffy, I thought. I thought the chemise was so cute and just had to buy. I really want to get a mint green kimono or something to go with the chemise, too. Hehe I’m such a geek and just had to buy the Wonder Woman thongs! It was actually my sister who spotted them and knew I’d love them! The smellies I bought will be birthday or Christmas gifts. The mango one will be for my sister as she loves The Mortal Instruments same as me so will totally get the reference (she got me one too haha!).

Here’s my haul:

Select:
  

Top – £8.99 reduced to £4.99.

Primark:
  
Chemise – £7.00.
  
Leggings – £5.00.
  
Top – £6.00.
  
Shorts (pack of 3) – £5.00.
Wonder Woman thongs (pack of 3) – £3 reduced to £1.00.
Bra – £6.00.
  
Belt – £1.00.
Mango & Papaya bubble bath and shower cream – £2.00 reduced to £1.00.
Strawberries & Cream bubble bath and shower cream – £2.00 reduced to £1.00.

 I love the top I bought from Select. It’s very Faith from Buffy, I thought. I thought the chemise was so cute and just had to buy. I really want to get a mint green kimono or something to go with the chemise, too. Hehe I’m such a geek and just had to buy the Wonder Woman thongs! It was actually my sister who spotted them and knew I’d love them! The smellies I bought will be birthday or Christmas gifts. The mango one will be for my sister as she loves The Mortal Instruments series as much as I do so will totally get the reference (she got me one too haha!).

Insurgent was good but as with most adaptations, it missed loads out, especially scenes that we book fans were hoping to see! It also included things that weren’t supposed to happen until the third book. So I’ve no idea how the film for Allegiant will pan out especially as it’s being filmed in two parts aswell!

I hope everyone is having a fab weekend!

Gifts For Book Lovers…

I love my books and I love escaping into a whole new world that isn’t my own. I find reading really relaxing and can be, more often than not, found with my head stuck in a book rather than my eyes glued to the TV – unless it’s the Winchester brothers, the Salvatore Brothers, Klaus, Daryl Dixon, Oliver or Barry and then maybe, juuust maybe, my attention may waiver just a little to the TV. 😉

I love books so much that I would probably be considered a geek as I love anything book related too! I recently found myself trawling through several shopping sites for all things book! I came across sooo many things that I wanted and I thought I would share a few of my favourites with you all.



This Hoody from Look Human is me all over! I can see me wearing this at the weekend doing just what the hoody suggests! And to be even more ironic, I can also see me wearing this on a trip to Waterstones, then once I’ve had a lengthy browse through the books, I’d  go upstairs to Cafè Neros, enjoy a lovely cup of Chai whilst reading whatever book/s I’ve purchased!



I love the classics! Although I love Pride & Prejudice, it is my sister’s favourite book and I saw this Cushion from Look Human and thought of her. The quote suits both her and me down to a tee!



This Books and Tea One Cup Teapot from Etsy is so darn cute and perfect for those who love their tea like I do! Hah I could be wearing the hoody from above whilst making a lovely cup of Chai from the teapot!



I love Etsy for their unique gifts and this Bracelet is no different. The quote is so true! I still have a tonne of books that I need to read haha!



These stud earrings from Etsy are so quirky and I love anything quirky! Might just have to buy these as they are so me!



I love Game of Thrones and although I am yet to read the book series (they are amongst the books on my bookcase that I’ve still to read), I felt this quote from A Dance With Dragons is so apt for fellow book addicts:

“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one.”

This Bracelet was another awesome find from Etsy.



I LOVE this Scarf! Also from Etsy. It has a beautiful quote from my favourite of the classics, Romeo & Juliet, which reads:

Romeo: O, wilt thou leave me so unsatisfied?


Juliet: What satisfaction canst thou have to-night?

Romeo: The exchange of thy love’s faithful vow for mine.

Juliet: I gave thee mine before thou didst request it:
And yet I would it were to give again.

Romeo
: Wouldst thou withdraw it? for what purpose, love?

Juliet: But to be frank, and give it thee again.
And yet I wish but for the thing I have:
My bounty is as boundless as the sea,
My love as deep; the more I give to thee,

The more I have, for both are infinite.”

*sigh* There’s just something so romantic about the way Shakespeare writes.

So those are just a sample of what I found and love. What do you think?

“Braid-tionary”

I love Pinterest. It comes up with all sorts of random things whether you mean to come across them or not. Today it’s lead me to this site with a how-to-guide on beautiful intricate braids from TV shows like Game of Thrones (I loooove the hairstyles they do on the show) to films like The Hunger Games.

My outfit for a wedding’s evening do including Vince Camutos

Ok this is kind of a random post as normally I’d be posting about books or films or tv shows..,.but mostly books. Anywaaay… I’ve just bought a new outfit for my boyfriend’s cousin’s wedding evening party and it arrived today. It’s quirky! I love it: What do you think?

And the shoes are Vince Camutos. Those of you who are major Twifans and into cosplay will know that Rosalie wore a pair of Vince Camutos in the film.

It is £385 though 😦 I have found a few similar ones but nothing nearly identical so I need your help! Have you seen anything remotely similar? If so let me know! Even if you are half way across the world!! Below right is the closest I have found colour wise!
