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!
“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!
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!
Hey guys! How’s your Sunday going? Today I want to post about something I’m a part of and I’d love for you to be a part of it too! I’m admin for a beauty swap box group on Facebook where each month members are teamed with a buddy and you each put together a box filled with lovely beauty, skincare products and other little gifts that you think your buddy will like. The amount you want to spend on your swap box gifts is entirely up to you and your buddy! You don’t have to join in each month, you can just do it the once if you’d like.
It’s lots of fun and it’s great making new friends in the process. If you’d like to join or want to know more then click on one of the pictures to take you to the group. Sadly, because it may be expensive to post to other countries, the group is for UK and Ireland residents only.
The past couple of weeks have been kind of emotional. I have now handed my notice in at work and shall officially be leaving on the 7th August! Why you ask? Well, it’s pretty awesome really … My boyfriend has asked me to move in with him! Yay! Eek! It’s such a big step and not just because I’m simply moving into another house in town, ohhhh no. Nope. It’s because I shall be moving away to “sunny” Pembrokeshire, Wales and leaving my friends and family behind in Lincolnshire, England. It’s gonna be real tough leaving them and, let me tell you, I have shed my fair share of tears already just thinking about it! BUT I need to follow my heart. – That sounds sooo corny but it’s true. This is why I’ve been so emotional. Lord knows what I’ll be like on moving day! It is the right thing to do, though. I love my boyfriend and I love Wales – Pembrokeshire is so beautiful! On the week of my move, my boyfriend will be spending the week with me, helping me pack (just the essentials for now as we’ll be living at his parents for a while first) and then he’ll help me haul everything on to the train to my new home! I’m excited and nervous all at the same time! I don’t have a job in Wales yet but I’ve been job hunting everyday and am anxiously waiting to hear back from a couple at the mo so fingers crossed I can secure a job BEFORE I actually move down there.
So, there you go, that’s my big life changing news! Have any of you guys done the same and moved away to be with the one you love?
